about

"Hey, It's Springtime! So open the windows and scream "DINNER!" to the ones you love, and "HELP ME!" to the ones you don't. Play this album while you do so. You'll love it. Especially if you love spring, dinner, and love as much as I do."
- "Papa" John Schnatter (Tony Sock's Pro Waiter 3)

Track Name: Homeless In My Home
Every time I think I’ve died, I wake up with a headache

I can’t stand to be a man who can’t stand to be standing

I’m only alive when I throw my life away

I can’t stand to understand the human I can’t stand to be and

When I step into my room I just wanna go home

So I sink into my bed just like a stone

‘Cause I realize I’m homeless in my home

I wonder when the goblin craft will come take me away

Because I cannot bear a world where all I see’s your face

You talk to me like you don’t know how I feel

But how can I be more obvious without plunging your hand into my chest and removing my heart?

I might as well be loving you from space

I’d probably be more content that way

‘Cause I’m the winter in your month of May

I’m always in my car driving across this stupid Earth

But I never seem to feel relief when I return

When I open the fridge I just wanna hibernate

So I drink ’til I can’t stand and hope I’ll meet my fate

When I step into my room I just wanna go home

So I sink into my bed just like a stone

‘Cause I realize I’m homeless in my home
Track Name: Pow! (Bam Boom Bang)
I don’t ever wanna see you walking out the door

I’ll just have to drool out of my eyes and hit the floor

‘Cause you know it’s all I ever taste

These onomatopoeias dripping down my face

They’re the only words that can describe my state

Pow Bam Boom Bang

Stab me in the heart with your corn cob shank

I don’t even know what you’re trying to say

But I really like it anyway

I love too much to die, it hurts too much to live

I’m sitting on the fence where your backyard is

I’ll come down to you if you want me to

Or I could always try the other side
Track Name: I Love You, But...
I wanna say what’s on my mind

But I know that it isn’t right

It’s like I’ve got a bomb inside

I love you but I wanna die

And I’d tell you but I’m not the type

to say things that possibly might backfire, but I’m trying

It’s a real motherfucker to

Feel like I’m never getting over you

And you treat me like your ugly shoes

I wish I was a better man

But I’m eating chili from a can

And I don’t think you understand

What is it about me you don’t see

Or is it you just don’t see me

I just feel like I’m a disease that you’re immune to

I fell asleep on the stove

Now my hair’s on fire for your love

I wish I was what you dream of

I love you but I wanna die

And I know that it isn’t right

But it’s just something I can’t fight.
Track Name: Reptoid Rock n' Roll
I’m eating a bug made of dreams

Sleeping on sheets made of teeth

I’m just a meat you can greet

With skin I won’t need in a week

I love holding hands with your bones

While hearing the microwave moan

I’m a sucker for your dial tone

The TV’s asleep on the beach

So let’s play with the batteries

And listen to the Reptoid Rock ‘n’ Roll

Colors are only for eyes

Seeing is only for size

Your eyes are the size of the sun

I’m fighting their time with my tongue

The atoms of faces are guns

The atoms of breathing are screams

The atoms of screaming are sleep

I’m only sleeping to scream

I’m only sleeping to scream

Why don’t you scream with my sleep

Screaming to the Reptoid Rock ‘n’ Roll
Track Name: In Your Closet
I’ve got whiskey

But that’s all I have left of you

And it used to make you dance

I hate dancing

But with you I couldn’t stop

And I want to understand

Why you’re the only thing I’ve ever wanted back

In your closet

We made love and fell asleep and you told me to stay

As long as I wanted and I left

And I’m afraid that I won’t find my way back

You were aimless

I guess that’s why we fit so well

But I still escaped it

To the Pacific

But you waited for me still and I don’t deserve it

Because I threw you off the train

And I’ve never regretted so much my mistake

I’ve got whiskey

But that’s all I have left of you

And these bottles could reach the moon

So maybe I’ll just follow them there

‘Cause I’m dying from how much I still care
Track Name: I'll Be Your Black Jack (If You'll Be My Train)
I’ll be your Black Jack darling if you’ll be my train

I’ll steal your heart tonight, even if I hang

I’ll shoot the sheriff and the deputy of Love for you

I’ll leave them in the dust and run away with you

and I don’t need the gang, ’cause I want you for my own

All the loot in New Mexico can try and try

And never come close to the price of your eyes

Tonight is the night I will attempt my biggest heist

I’ll be your Black Jack darling if you’ll be my train tonight

I’ll be your Black Jack darling if you’ll be my train

I’ll steal your heart tonight, even if I hang

I lose my head every time you look at me that way

You’re like a shotgun barrel with a pretty face

And I wanna win you even though I live to lose

Will you ever love me the way the law loves the noose

I’ll be your Black Jack darling if you’ll be my train

I’ll steal your heart tonight, even though I’ll hang
Track Name: I Lost Your Love and All I Got Was This Lousy Song
The guitar that I’m playing

I bought to write a song

It cost me twenty dollars

Now all my money’s gone

But I couldn’t afford to get myself through ’til dawn

So I lost your love, and all I got was this lousy song

Well I’ve been singing so long

Like I haven’t a clue

But it’s not music in my heart

It’s always just been you

Yeah so I guess I’ll start screaming

And you can keep the songs

‘Cause without you here

This noise will just go on and on

I’ll say that you broke my heart

We’ll both know that’s a lie

‘Cause I’m just a curmudgeon

Underneath your sunny sky

There’s no point in asking

If I’m worth your time

‘Cause the hands on my watch

Only turn counter-clockwise

I guess I should be packing

My milk crate full of clothes

The cardboard box furniture

‘Cause it’s time for me to go

I see in your eyes that

I have been exposed

I got caught squatting in a heart

That’s been foreclosed

‘Cause I couldn’t afford to get myself through ’til dawn

So I lost your love, and all I got was this lousy song.
Track Name: Space Suit Blues
Never be a loner

Never be alone

Throw your hell in a garbage pail

and bring your heaven home

‘Cause I’ll be alone

Even if I have you

So I’m just making guardian angels in the snow

Crying in my soda

Ain’t my cup of tea

Should I just leave you alone

Or aren’t you sick of me?

Never be a loner

Never be alone

Throw your hell in a garbage pail

And bring your heaven home

Everybody sees it

I think you do too

If I take this helmet off

The air will turn me blue

‘Cause I’ve been alone

Long before I had you

Stuck inside my skin which is a space suit with the blues

Maybe it’s all my fault

Maybe it’s bad luck

Maybe I’m just destined to

Sleep in a pickup truck

So never be a loner

Never be alone

Throw your hell in a garbage pail

and bring your heaven home
Track Name: No Ghost Town
I'm more alone than I ever was
Like the only ghost living in a no ghost town
How did I end up here, I should be heading down
Not to Hell, but to Calico or Norristown
Well you can try to take a picture, but you'll be let down
'Cause I'm the only ghost living in a no ghost town

I wonder what you'd think of me if I was around
But I'm the only ghost living in a no ghost town
My saran wrap skin can never touch the ground
'Cause I'm a ghost (living in a no ghost town)
If I got on a bus, you think it'd take me down
To a ghost town, take me to a ghost town

Oh yeah living in a no ghost town
I'm just a goblin living in a human town
Track Name: Dumpster Diver
Watching you glow in the neon lights of dive bars

Talking to my empty can

Asking why I’m here

What’s it like to be a million dollar dinner

In front of my starving eyes

I guess that’s just me

Always wanting what I can’t have

Or what I’ve thrown away

I’m just a garbage man

A dumpster diver for love

Reaching for you from your kitchen sink disposal

You forgot to turn it on

So I could hear you laugh

Like twenty saxophone schizophrenics

Plastic wrap me up and put me in the freezer

Underneath your bagel bites

Where I’ll wither away

What’s the point in dying happy

When you can die alone

Like an antique empty barn

Not like a sinking ship

‘Cause what have I to lose

I’m just a dumpster diver for love

Now you’re talking trash to your own garbage can

Where I’ve been sleeping with our love

That’s doubtlessly expired

Well what do you expect

I’m a dumpster diver for love
Track Name: Yeah, I Guess You Know
Your love is all I had
Yeah, I guess you know
You shot it into space
Toward the sun
Which ain't at all like me
I blend into the dark
Where your shadow speaks

You're all I hear in sleep
Or is that just a dream
'Cause I just lie awake
'Til something beckons me
Is that you I see?
The fog starts at your neck
Stretching endlessly

Your love is all I had
Yeah, I guess you know
But I can't let it go
