Track Name: Belated Promise Ring
"I love my guitar
I love my guitar
I wanna play 'er everyday
I wanna play 'er everyday
And never ever ever
Stop
Never ever ever
Stop
Never ever ever stop,

There are flats
All around
There are flats
All around
The sun is beating on my skin
The sun is beating on my skin
I never ever wanna ever
Stop
I never ever wanna ever
Stop
Never ever wanna ever stop,

Trust me, you can see
Mountains of red and green
They make it all worth while
They make it all worth while
They change the way it
Is
They change the way it
Is
They change the way it is,

My mind
Cries for them
My mind
Cries for them
I know that it's no ones fault
Know that it's no ones fault
It's just the way it
Is
It's just the way it
Is
Just the way it is."
Track Name: Scherzino Mexicano
Sunday morning my Rebekahs sleeping in with me again
There's a kid outside the church kickin' a can

When the ceder branchs twist she turns her collar to the wind
The weather can close the world within it's hands

And my mother says Rebekah is as stubborn as the come
They both call me to with words I never knew

There's a bug inside the thimble theres a band aid on her thumb
And a pony in the river turning blue

They say time may give you more then your poor bones could ever take
My Rebekah says she never wants a boy

To be barefoot on the driveway as they wave and ride away
And to run inside and curse the open door

I once gave to my Rebekah a belated promise ring
And she sold it to the waitress one a train

I may find her by the phone booth with a fashion magazine
She may kiss me when her girlfriends leave again

They say time may give you more then your poor bones could ever take
I think I could never love another girl

To be free atop a tree stump and to look the other way
While she shines my mothers imitation pearls

Sunday evening, my Rebeka's lost a book she never read
And the moon fell into the sea

So the statues of our fathers in the courthouse flowerbed
Now they bend with all the lighting tattered trees

They say time may give you more then your poor bones could ever take
My Rebekah said she knew I'd want a boy

A dollar for my boardwalk red balloon to float away
She would earn a pocketful to buy me more
Track Name: Never Stop

Track Name: Sunset Soon Forgotten
Be this sunset soon forgotten
Your brothers left here shaved and crazy
We've learned to hide our bottles in the well
And what's worth keeping, sun still sinking
Down and down
Once again
Down and down
Gone again

Be this sunset one for keeping
This june bug street sings low and lovely
Those band-aid children
Chased your dog away
She runs, returning, sun still sinking
Down and down
Once again
Down and down
Gone again
Track Name: Creep
When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so fucking special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice when I'm not around
You're so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

She's running out the door
She's running out
She runs runs runs runs..
Runs...

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here
I don't belong here
