Track Name: Jersey Sliz
your mama’s got her make-up tattooed on her face - new fake tits and welfare checks from the state - i can smell where you’ve been hidin’ ‘cause you run that dirty mouth - wish you’d just kept on drivin’ never stopped heading south - with your cocaine, xanax, percocets, molly, amphetamine - everyone is laughing as you carry your heels out of the bar - queen of the trenton tramps babe, i know you’re a star - but take a bite out of crime - lift your nose off the line - i know it ain’t easy, but you aren’t trying hard enough - you’ve got your own name tattooed on your shoulder blade - suckin’ newports you ain’t ever baked a cake - take a bite out of crime - lift your nose off the line - i know it ain’t easy shootin’ heroin, heroin, heroin.
Track Name: Must See TV
driving down this lost highway with your ghost in the wind, trouble is I'm seeing double of every place we've been. It ain't easy to be left all of this time, wonderin' if I'll see your face somewhere down the line - you can hear me wailing somewhere, howling at my girl in the moon. b-b-broken hearts sipping cherry cola is kinda twistin' up my mind, and I'd fall off every bar stool any time that you came by. but it ain't easy to be right all of the time. tryin' not to think about how you could've been mine - you can hear me wailing somewhere, howling at my, tryin' to capture that girl in the moon.
Track Name: Rain Jawn
well I dropped a coin in your head, you spent months in my bed tellin' me everything that could've been - should've been - why does your rain fall so hard? why does your rain fall so hard? never met a girl quite like you - defeated. and I'll admit maybe my heart wasn't true - conceited. driving 'round this town hogging the knife and you're bleeding. never was deserving of a wife. you raped all the space you could fill all that time that you killed puttin' me on again and off again your ball and chain - why does your rain fall so hard? why does your rain fall so hard on me? never met a girl quite like you - defeated. and I'll admit maybe my heart wasn't true - conceited. driving 'round this town hogging the knife and you're bleeding. I never was deserving of a wife, I'm too lazy.
Track Name: Halfway
she's a million miles away - had no reason to stay. now she's a million miles from me - left me starin' 'cross the sea, saying "I'll meet you halfway. I'll meet you halfway - I'll meet you halfway - I'll meet you halfway". but you never called.
Track Name: Fuck College
I went to college - majored in bullshit. four years, five-million beers, to hang my name on the wall and say "Mom look what I did - hey Dad, look what I did - I wasted my youth and I wasted your money too". I got her pregnant - he's due any day now. eighteen years paying arrears, she looks so bad to me now, oh, Mom - Mom look what I did - hey Dad, look what I did - I wasted my youth and I wasted your money too. Now I've got a mortgage - just living here with the puppy. thirty years 'till I'm clear, the bank takes my money now. Mom. Mom look what I did. Hey Dad. Look what I did. I wasted my youth and I wasted your money too.
Track Name: Tomato
there's an unharvested part of my backyard that's ready for tomato season. there's a grassy part of my mind that's ready to be torn up. I will plant flowers there, like the flowers in her hair. won't you just stop dreaming? it's bothering me. it's making me jealous and affecting my... there's an tree in this town that I swear to bring down. I'll burn it to keep myself warm. won't you just stop dreaming? it's bothering me. it's making me jealous and affecting my sleep. won't you just stop dreaming? it's bothering me. it's making me jealous and affecting my sleep.
Track Name: The Use
come on baby, what's the use to keep on screaming like you do? well it doesn't really matter anyway, you don't want me to stay. you don't want me to stay. come on baby, what's the use to keep on screaming like you do? well it doesn't really matter anyway, you don't want me to stay. you don't want me to stay. you don't want me to stay. you don't want me to stay.
