Track Name: Something Else
I've seen a lot of real nice sunsets over the skyline
Maybe even enough to make dying all right
I doubt I'll feel that good when I get to the dying
What do I know about dying, anyhow?

But it comes and it comes and it comes and it comes
And it never ever goes
Yeah it comes and it comes and it comes and it comes
And you never ever know

Can we talk about something else, please?
First dates aren't made for conversations like these

I grew up thinking that all I'd have to fear was the dying
Now I come to find out that the scary shit is getting old
I've gotta lotta gigs before I get to the dying
And I know there's not a home waiting for me at the end of that road

Can we talk about something else, please?
First dates aren't made for conversations like
Can you sing about something else, please?
Saturdays aren't made for singing songs like these
Track Name: Prize Spider
It's getting harder to wake up alone on Halloween
The apples have all gone bad and the razor blades have lost their sheen
There's a chill in the air tonight, there's an extra hitch in my step
I got bruises I can't remember, you've got a voice I can't forget

You're my prize spider
So pull those webs a little tighter

Crumpled up under the BQE is no way to spend a Saturday night
And I gotta go play this show, are you sure you're gonna be alright?
Now you've got me talking to the cops, I hope this doesn't become a thing
I hope that spike, it came out all right, 'cause I'll be seeing you in my dreams

You're my prize spider
So pull those webs a little tighter

And we're going door to door tonight
So open your eyes, 'cause you're giving me a fright

You're my prize spider
So pull those webs a little tighter
Track Name: Took
I will hang our bones on high
At the end of the western sky
The stars I picked have all been dead for so long
They don't know if it's right or wrong

They don't know we took it slow
They don't know that we took it at all

I will dig you the finest grave
When my hands are old and gray
Don't know where you'll be when it comes time to fill it in
Guess I'll sit and count the holes in my crooked grin
I'm smiling 'cause

They don't know we took it slow
They don't know that we took it all

Now I think I'm done singing
All my songs couldn't buy you a ring
I think I know where we can find one after all
Bricked up deep behind some basement wall

They don't know we took it slow
They don't know that we took it all
