Track Name: War Party - Beginner's Luck
John and Jackie in their tower alone
just wonderin' what to do
with their wedding gifts
and their swollen red lips
and the pieces of their party, too.
Did he love her enough
Did she let him enough?
is that all there was to this affair?
A bottle of wine, a few sertraline
some sweaty fingers in her hair--
a love beyond repair.
But I know that they really want to make it in this world alone
Don't want a house, don't want a spouse, don't want a prayer,
don't want a job, don't want a car, don't want a trunk
A doctor or accountant or lawyer, just beginner's luck.
You could be particle dust on the radiowaves
long after your body is gone
and if you're not careful who you leave your estate to
coca-cola may one day own all of your songs.
Ziggy & Darby swore to just 5 years
but only one of 'em really told the truth.
Isn't it wild to think that you're wildest dreams
might be wild enough to finish you?
This machine kills artists, too!
but you know that you don't really want to make it in this world alone
You want a staff to prepare your food,
you want an audience whose eyes are stuck
and a stack of dead presidents, too.
You want beginner's luck.
Sitting stoned in my room alone
clumsy fingers plucking out a tune
to the crowded cafe static on my cellular phone,
a sort of rhapsody in Klein blue.
Uh oh! Woah oh!
Track Name: War Party - (A Little Hell) From My Fringe
I've got a song in my head, it keeps me up all night
at 3AM if I look up its all black and white
During the day I get the blues just looking at the sky,
I hired a nurse for the weakends, she brings me back to life
I hired a hearse for the weak ends if it don't go right
I got a real expensive lawyer to argue my side
Oh yes
If it don't go right I'm going to need someone to take my side
so she said,
"If you got a drink then I'll take a drink
and if you don't want to think, oh I got just the thing and if you've got no plans then honey, I'm your man.
I'll dig a hole just to prove to You how damned I am."
That's what she said.
Track Name: War Party - Problem Solver
Our lips were red, our hands were led
to passing back and forth a revolver
one on one russian roulette
fell into your bed and then out of your bed
like a real "problem solver"
and I felt like a crushed rat
getting pulled out of the arms of a mousetrap
then crushed once again
by the insignificance of my death and thus life.
So I'll just sulk here until I rot,
in the bottom of your kitchen trash can
and once the smell is gone I'll be forgot
and you'll continue your affair with the garbage man

Oh how sad, how truly fucking tragic
that no tragedy has ever taken place here before
when we were so sure that this stress was post traumatic.
And we crawled into our heart-shaped Trojan horse We never could make love like we could war.
But oh wait a minute, Mr. Postman, didn't you see this coming?
Yeah, wait a minute what kind of man delivers a letter like that and then just takes off running?
Let it rot in the mailbox
and maybe someday he'll come back.
You can place your final bet on True Love
like its just another horse at the track

and all of your dreams will do nothing
but watch you sleep.
Track Name: Doom Ghost - No Tagbacks
Whats a boy to do with sand
when all he wanted was a hand
cant you help a brother out
words left your lips as i went out

To the sound of a new steady beat
i no longer want to repeat
the way your feet hit the sidewalk
old converse on a beanstalk

That was a low blow wasnt it?

Silly sayings still follow me
silly words still hollow me

On my knees on the train tracks
on my knees cause theres no tagbacka
if it keeps raining this sweater wont do
the rain hits harder and the water soaks thru

That was a low blow wasnt it?
Track Name: Doom Ghost - There Is A Room Filled With Blood
There is a room inside my heart painted with lavender walls
and a window sill where rosemary sits and lets me sing to her

But rosemary cross wont sing with me
no rosemary cross wont sing
Rosemary cross wont sing with me
and so i sing alone

There is a room inside my head draped with christmas lights
Cause sometimes whats normal is just a little too bright and it makes me want to run away

So i run and i run just as far as i can
And ill run till i run with a cane
But wherever i go theres still someone else
Someone to sing with me

So sing a song
so sing a song
a song about nothing no nothing at all
but at least youll be singing with me
