Track Name: Ed Gein's Etsy
To find a pair of earrings made of human bone
I know where to shop, I know where to go
Shade of lamp, Skin of man
I know where, I know where

Ed Gein's Etsy

I've got something special for you to wear
Something that no one else will ever have

Something nice for you to wear

When craft turns into crime, when craft turns into crime
Sell her, sell him

Ed Gein's Etsy
Track Name: Nadia
Lips full of potential
She's got me in a knot
A human pretzel
And she's the salt

I'm so thirsty and she's a tall glass of water

To crawl inside of you, to crawl inside of you
And lay down for a while
To bask in the exile... from me.

Nadia, how's it feel to be like you?
Now I feel just like you.

Through your eyes I see strange people that I used to know
It's just like that episode of The Twilight Zone
If I'm in your body where did you go?
You're probably at home all alone on my couch watching The Twilight Zone

I might pretend I'm trapped here 'cause I don't wanna go
I hope you like my cat and my apartment 'cause I'm never coming home
Please tell my mom I love her and my father
I hope you'll be, no, I know you'll be an excellent daughter

She's so thirsty and I'm a tall glass of water
She's so thirsty and I'm a tall... glass

Nadia, how's it feel to be like me?
Now you feel just like me.
Track Name: Tom Waits For No One
I'm 31 years old and I still don't wanna go.

Hey dad can you call me into work today?
I have an extreme case of "not wanting to sit and stare at a screen all day"

Pushing pixels for the man
My teeth are rot so I need this dental plan
I'm just another corpse in queue
But so are you

A break room for the souls
Who need some time alone
And the workers can't go home
Until they've spent all their bones

Time waits for... no one

Remember when Lauryn Hill's character's mom in the movie Sister Act II said "Music doesn't pay the bills." and "Music doesn't put food on the table." Well, she was right.

Learn to play guitar
And get a free drink at the bar
And aint it a shame no one likes your band
And you tried so hard

A break room for the souls
Who need some time alone
And the workers can't go home
Until they've spent all their bones

Time waits for... no one

I'm ashamed
I'm afraid
That I'm so lame
And time won't wait for me to get it together

Now I'm losing my mind, Now I'm losing my job
Now my cat is dying, and my car's been robbed
All my funds are waning and the man's complaining
Who am I fooling? My man is gone.

Time waits for... no one

I'm getting older and I'm so afraid to die
Maybe I should quit smoking, maybe I should start taking vitamins
Maybe I should move to the country and start a family, a real nice family
Eat some fucking peaches and shit I don't know
Or maybe I should listen to Frankie... and relax
Or move to Hollywood.
Track Name: Lazy Looker
Strangers in the same apartment
Is that what we've become just room mates?
We share the same cutting board
And I think you're ready to cut me off with the internet
And start reading books about blowing glass

And I was always careful with your cutlery
And you know me I'm rather clumsy
With knives and self-esteem
With knives and self-esteem

I have none left, I'm getting older
And I wanted to grow old with you
But sometimes I can't get what I want
So I'll leave it up to you

So you asked if I needed a hand
To carry my stuff down to the van
And I said "No thanks I need the excercise"
So I can find another man.

But I'm a lazy looker
And I know I won't find shit
And if I'm destined for boredom
Then so be it.

I'm pretty good at pacing down the pavement
And wasting gasoline
And shuffling through the stations to find a song
That reminds me of what we used to be

And I'm so sorry for wasting all your time
Even vaseline couldn't free me from this bind
And if you want to be free you must leave this soul behind

So you asked if you could hold my hand
If we could start over again
But I've already packed the van
Track Name: 3737 N. Clark St.
The painting on the wall
At the hospital
This acrylic woman won't let me get no sleep at all

And all the nurses in the hall agree that he has lost his mind

He kept repeating this address
And clutching his stomach
He kept repeating this address
It seemed so cryptic

A combination of 4 numbers
Whispered in a certain way
He tells his daughter everyday
Why won't you just take me

3737 N. Clark St.

And all he wanted was a dog
One Chicago-style dog
One last dog before he's gone

Now, Just put me in the car
Won't even wear my seatbelt
'cause I live for danger
You know me I'm a red hots man
Born and raised in Chicago land

Just hold the ketchup
Poppy seed bun
Electric green relish
And extra pickle

Nananananana

Drag it through the garden
Drag it through the garden

3737 N. Clark St.
Track Name: Gorilla Days
The band played loud on Wendy Way
In Dorothy's room on Demon days
Strum to strike a feeling, Strum to strike a feeling
We were so depressed, a teenage mess
And all those songs we sang together were so out of tune
But what I wouldn't give to be back there in that old bedroom

And those were the best times of our lives
Memories that I can't set aside
I'll love you all until the day I die

And all these years they will go by and I still think of you sometimes

We Graduate

In our cars we'd drive for miles not going anywhere
In our cars we'd drive for miles not going anywhere
And sometimes I go back there, sometimes I go back there
But it's all changed, the people are so strange and we are all strangers now in the end

And those were the best times of our lives
Memories that I can't set aside
I'll love you all until the day I die

And all these years they will go by and I still think of you sometimes
Do you ever think of me?

We were young, we were young
Track Name: Post Apocalyptic Casino
In the year 2066
When all the plants have died
and there's no oxygen left
I only have enough to last me for 3 more days
But there's always the casino

In the war of 2057 alien lifeforms descended upon us with advanced weaponry even the U.S. government couldn't describe
The forests were scorched, the lakes were sucked dry
And a select colony of us was unlucky enough to survive

Now I'll tell you where I've got to go
To breathe...

I gambled myself down to 4 hours left of oxygen
But I think, I have a feeling I'm about to have a lucky streak
I think I have a feeling that maybe I could win it all and live forever

I need a queen, I need a queen
To reign
I need a king, I need a king
To reign

Now I'll tell you where I've got to go
To breathe...
