Track Name: Runaway
Waiting tables for money, honey
I bring a drink to you
I look around and the world seems funny
I know you see it too

I spill your drink
I make you think
Look around and what do they say
Life is a joke
Everyone's broke

Come on, baby
Do the runaway

Burning all the money, honey
Wasting all the time
I look around and everyone's running
The world is yours and mine

I kiss your shoulder
Stop from getting older
Ain't no more people, can't hear what they say
Everyone's dead
Drunk in the head

Come on, baby
Do the runaway
Track Name: Double Wide
Life in the low
But I sing from my soul
In my double wide

Touch your androgyny
Feel my monotony
In my double wide

Cooking for love
Making love on the rug
In my double wide

Carpet stains
Lazy-E-Boy back pains
In my double wide

Broken t.v.
Now you gotta watch me
In my double wide

Cat fish fry
'Til the day I die
In my double wide
In my double wide
Track Name: Baby, Wake Up
Sometimes in the mornin'
When I can feel you breathin'
I lay there for a minute
I wonder what you see

In your dreams
There are bad men
And people who would kill
But I put my arm around you
I'm here with you still

Baby, wake up
The nightmare is through
Baby, wake up
I'm lying right beside you
Baby, wake up
The nightmare is done
Baby, wake up
Let's have some morning fun...

When your eyes finally open
I greet you with a kiss
Good morning, I love you
Ain't no place better than this

In your dreams
You were cryin'
But you've had your fill
I put my arms around you
I'm here with you still

Baby, wake up
The nightmare is through
Baby, wake up
I'm lying right beside you
Baby, wake up
The nightmare is done
Baby, wake up
Let's have some morning fun...

Baby, wake up
The nightmare is through
Baby, wake up
I'm lying right beside you
Baby, wake up
The nightmare is done
Baby, wake up
Let's have some morning fun...
Track Name: Dog's Head
I'm living in the dog's head part of the rain
I'm living in the dog's head part of the rain
I'm living in the dog's head
I'm living in the dog's head
I'm living in the dog's head part of the rain

I'm living in the dog's head part of the rain
I'm living in the dog's head part of the rain
I'm living in the dog's head
I'm living in the dog's head
I'm living in the dog's head part of the rain

I'm living in the dog's head part of the rain
I'm living in the dog's head part of the rain
I'm living in the dog's head
I'm living in the dog's head
I'm living in the dog's head part of the rain
Track Name: Shadowbus
Greyhound won't do
In times like these
Praying for a ride
I fall on my knees

It's two a.m.
I can't get home
I walk to the place
Where the shadowbus roams

Don't need a ticket
Ain't no fuss
Don't need a suitcase
Shadowbus
Don't matter where you're going
Hop on with us
But don't ride too far
On the shadowbus

I'm looking out the window
Waiting for a sign
Empty plastic seat
For that girl of mine

I left in a hurry
Said, "Babe, I gotta go"
She asked when I would be back home
I said, "Baby, I don't know"

Don't need a ticket
Ain't no fuss
Don't need a suitcase
Shadowbus
Don't matter where you're going
Hop on with us
But don't ride too far
On the shadowbus

Don't need a ticket
Ain't no fuss
Don't need a suitcase
Shadowbus
Don't matter where you're going
Hop on with us
But don't ride too far
On the shadowbus
Track Name: Venus in Denim
Out of the dog's head
And into the creek
Grab my shirt collar
And hit me if
If I speak

I'll take you to the river
Swim and then sweat
Tell me you'll be there
At that house
In my head

Dive in the Cannon
Swim in my head
Dive in the Cannon
Until I'm dead

Let's give each other bruises
Cigarette burns
I won't refuse it
If you make
Love hurt

The party is over
The house guests are gone
We were in my head
Swimmin'
All along

Dive in the Cannon
Swim in my head
Dive in the Cannon
Until I'm dead

Dive in the Cannon
Swim in my head
Dive in the Cannon
Until I'm dead
Track Name: Pop Sounds
My radio picks up
From over the ocean
I hear a little girl
Singing that song
Toes begin to tap
In a twisting rhythm
I don't know the language but I
Sing along

Pop sounds
In my head
Pop sounds so
Bright red
Pop sounds
Shooting pool
Pop sound so
French cool

That little girl is older now
And that time is past
I feel the organ swell
And I wish I could go back
So I turn the stereo up
To hear the trumpets moan
Little girl in the Sunday shoes gonna
Take me home

Pop sounds
In my head
Pop sounds so
Bright red
Pop sounds
Shooting pool
Pop sound so
French cool

I don't know the language

Pop sounds
In my head
Pop sounds so
Bright red
Pop sounds
Shooting pool
Pop sound so
French cool
Track Name: Dundas (My Head is Amiss)
Two bars
City hall
You come
To get it all

Livin'
In piss
When you're drunk is the
Only time you wanna kiss

My head is amiss
My head's in a dish
My head is amiss
Give my brain a kiss

Two bars
And a mill
You come
To get your fill

Leaving town
On a rail
Devil gone now I own
Hell

My head is amiss
My head's in a dish
My head is amiss
Give my brain a kiss

Two bars
City hall
You come
To get it all

Livin'
In piss
When you're drunk is the
Only time you wanna kiss me

My head is amiss
My head's in a dish
My head is amiss
Give my brain a kiss
