Track Name: Hula Hoop
You stole my hula hoop
And I don’t know why
I always give you cigarettes
I never curse your casual sex
It’s cause I’d like to do the same
But I’d never steal your hula hoop

I’ll take your box of 64
And sell your crayons down the store
It’s cause I’d like to do the same
But I’d never steal your hula hoop

Red, yellow, brown and green
Colors that you’ll never see
It’s cause I’d like to do the same
Unless you give me back my hula hoop

I stole your crayon box
And you sure know why
You can’t have my cigarettes
Even though I’ve plenty left
You should really be ashamed
Because you stole my fucking hula hoop

You stole my hula hoop
And I don’t know why
I always give you cigarettes
I never curse your casual sex
It’s cause I’d like to do the same
But I’d never steal your hula hoop

You stole my hula hoop
And I don’t know why

Let’s make a truce and celebrate
Your willingness to admit mistake
Ready to take all the blame
Because you stole my fucking hula hoop

Toasts your conquests up to date [Don’t like this line, it’s repetitive]
Crayons, toys and roller skates
To you really they’re really all the same
But why my special hula hoop

They’ll find your body in a box
Not placed with care
And out of stock
I got the key there ain’t no lock
I’m taking back my hula hoop
Track Name: No Ghosts Need Apply
I feel the blame
Through a city haze
Turn the lights out
Let's find an escape

I said I feel the blame
And all the sad disdain
Let's bury deep, deep, deep within the pain

You know I love you still
And I always will
My cheating heart
I don't know how to stop
You know I love them all
And I am doomed to fall
This decision's mine

I through with wasting my time

No ghosts need apply
Let's do the twist tonight

It's such a shame
I said it's such a shame
The way hips move
The way your lips taste

I need a favor
Lost and false start
You don't want none
That's just my sick heart

Light yourself on fire
Sick of running in place
I like the way your hips move
The way your lips taste

I said it's such a shame
You know it's such a shame
The way your hips move
The way your lips taste

This blade's a sweetheart don't you know
Let's do this twist and let it roll
This blades a sweetheart don't you know
Let's do the twist and rock & roll

I said I feel the blame
And all the sad disdain
Let's bury it deep deep deep within the pain

Light the night on fire
You bring the propane
Go and drive west
Grab that escape

The road is ours now
No longer running in place
The way your hips move
The way your lips taste

No ghosts need apply
Let's do the twist tonight

Let's do the twist and let it roll
This blade's a sweetheart don't you know
Track Name: Le Jenou Sale
Le Jenou Sale
She showed up down here
Just last week
With her damn dirty doll
And them unwashed knees

Lips like fire
Burn like it too
Stinking like bourbon
And baring a bruise or two

She came with what she carried
And she ain't going back
They can call her all they want
But she sails from a different track

Don't want no man
Animosity
Gonna get out on her own
And sail to a brand new sea
Track Name: Spins and Needles
Have not you had enough yet?
It's best you leave me be
I'm having trouble identifying any semblance left of me

My frankness dissipates
The words stumbling over trees
I'm having trouble remembering
Exactly what you want from me

I only write in pencil
The eraser qued for speed
The other women sit idle
They think it's best you leave me be

[The back and forth is tiring
A pendula with little speed
The reflection becomes confusing
What exactly do you want from me?]
Track Name: Cracked Plate
Distance, please come closer
You're the only touch I can stand
When your fingers dance down my face
I don't even miss the man

We'll feed off the fruit of the others
My place in the palm of your hand
Enveloped in silence
I don't even miss the man

Distance, please come closer
Fact is: I can't trust them at all
But me and you together
I know you'll never let me fall

If I don't have what we have
Frankly, I have nothing at all
Comfort becomes our silence
I know you'll never let me fall
Track Name: Vatican Sea
They say you need more soul [x3]
Save me a portion, Save me a portion
Of some soul distortion
All these voices are intact
This blade's a sweetheart don't you know
We did the twist and rock and rolled

This blade's a sweetheart don't you know
We stumbled, we stumbled all the way home

They say I need more soul [x2]
Save me a portion of some soul distortion
But there's nothing left of any importance

This blade's a sweetheart don't you know
We did the twist and rock and rolled
We stumbled, we stumbled all the way home

[How do we stop, somehow
How do you like me now?]
Track Name: Addam writes Katie a song for her B-day
Happy birthday broken bum bruised knees
Happy birthday broken shooting comets and torn jeans
It’s November and you fall faster then the leaves
before December I hope you can still see

I’m just kidding your just spectacular
And for once your not fighting anyone
Especially if for once your not arguing with me

Happy birthday broken ass and bruised knees
Happy birthday why don’t you drive into another rotary
It’s November (wow that’s harsh)you fall faster then the leaves
before December I hope you can walk and see
Happy birthday broken shooting comets and torn jeans

did you just fall again.
Aw


Happy birthday
