Track Name: Call the Doctor
Call the Doctor
I have had enough
Call the Doctor
I have had enough
Of trying, trying, trying, trying, trying.
Trying to be the one.

Electrify your bones and do plug in.
Electrify your bones and do plug in.
Instead of trying, trying, trying, trying, trying.
Trying to be the one.

What'd you think?
You had to be.
What'd you think?
You had to be.

Other than a hand a heart
A hand a heart heart
A hand a heart
A hand a heart to me.
What did you have to be?

Call the doctor
I have had enough
Call the doctor
I have had enough
Instead of trying, trying, trying, trying, trying
Trying to be the one.

What'd you think?
You had to be.
What'd you think?
You had to be.

Other than a hand a heart.
Hand a heart heart.
Hand a heart
A hand a heart to me
What did you have to be?

Easy as it goes
We all fall down
and think about the sounds
that we make.

Easy as it goes
We all fall down
And think about the sounds
that we make.
Track Name: Robots and Haircuts
You will hear a weak beat and sing.
You will hear a weak beat and sing.
You will hear a lullaby
And open up your mouth and eyes.
But you will never be in love.

And I will go and cry myself to sleep
I will go and cry myself to sleep
I will cry in solitude and pray that someone rescues you
But you will never be in love.

And nothings gonna happen
Even though its raining.
Nothings gonna happen
Even in the dark
Nothings gonna happen
Even though its raining
Nothings gonna happen
Even in the dark.

(Ha Ha Ha Ha)

And Robots only hear what they can feel
And Robots only feel what they can see
And yeah it might be zeroes and ones I'm sure
but zeroes and ones are just not me.

And nothings gonna happen
Even though its raining.
Nothings gonna happen
Even in the dark
Nothings gonna happen
Even though its raining
Nothings gonna happen
Cause we are worlds apart

And don't tell me to wait
Another time for another time.
Because I don't think I could take
Living a lie, living a lie.
But I do appreciate you.
Yeah I do appreciate you.
Being kind.

Cubicles they drown out all the sound.
Cubicles they drown out all the sound.
Of a heart thats beating wildly
For a girl thats nothing like me
And I'm jealous of the love she's found.

But over and over
I'm trying to sway from the games that we play
But over and over
You're getting your way.
And I do have to say
That I'm trying to make it O.K.
To walk away.

And don't tell me to wait
Another time for another time.
Because I don't think I could take
Living a lie, living a lie.
But I do appreciate you.
Yeah I do appreciate you.
Yeah I do appreciate you.
Being kind.

And nothings gonna happen.
Track Name: Bluebird
I am sorry my little man.
I kissed him on the mouth I did.
I kissed him on the mouth I did.
While you were looking down.

I am sorry my baby boy.
I played you like a little toy.
I played you like a tinkering toy.
And you finally threw me out.

But I'll come running two two sheets to the wind.
Don't, Don't, Don't, Don't you let me back in.
Cause I'll only break your heart again.

Saw a bluebird in the streets.
He sang me a song so sweet.
He sang me a song so sweet.
Almost felt like crying.
He lost a lover. He lost a friend
He did exactly just what I did.
He did exactly just what I did.
And God I feel like dying.

But I'll come running two two sheets to the wind.
Don't, Don't, Don't, Don't you let me back in.
Cause I'll only break your heart again.

Call me baby
Call me love
Call me baby
Call me love
Cause without you
This life ain't much.
But I've got to be going
My wicked ways have won.

So, when I come running two two sheets to the wind.
Don't, Don't, Don't, Don't you let me back in.
Cause I'll only break your heart again.
Track Name: Alright
Everybody's gonna clap their hands.
Everybody's gonna jump and dance.
Cause you are the one.
That they've been dreaming of.

Everybody's gonna shake their knees.
Everybody's gonna jump and scream
Cause you are the one.
That they've been dreaming of

Alright.

So don't you ever make a sound.
They don't wanna hear.
No don't you ever make a sound.
They don't wanna hear.
Cause I love you, I love you, I love you.
But that don't mean enough dear.

And you're gonna sell your soul
Cause its all gonna soon get old
Cause you aren't the one.
That they've been dreaming of.
Yeah they're gonna find you out.
Yeah they're gonna shut you down.
Cause you aren't they one.
That they've been dreaming of.

Alright.

So don't you ever make a sound.
They don't wanna hear.
No don't you ever make a sound.
They don't wanna hear.
Cause I love you, I love you, I love you.
But that don't mean enough dear.

Button your lip
And don't try to say
You were meant for the stage
Cause they'll take it away.
Button your lip
And don't try to say
You were meant for the stage
Cause they'll take it away.

Everybody's gonna clap their hands
Everybody's gonna understand
That you are the one
They've been dreaming of

Alright
Track Name: So Vain
Put your cigarette
On your baby's lip
Hope and pray it don't burn.
Like your mother's did.

Lay your castanets
On my pillow
In the morning
And I'll play your hair
Like a grand piano.

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh so vain.

And my words don't feel words
When they come out
More like stars and birds
Muddled into sound

Cause you're the ruling king
Of open hearts
I'm the caution queen
Never knowing where to start.

When I've found the words to say
Not around, you're not around.
But I'll say them anyway.
In muddled sound, in muddled sound.

Je t'adore. La vie. Je t'adore. La vie. L'amour.

Oh, so vain.
Track Name: Laughing On Your Grave
She is so damn pretty.
She is a mess that you want to clean up.

She has a brilliant career.
Of being the woman you hold dear.

And everybody's got to hold their rank.
And everybody's got to hold.

Cause I want a heart that is not occupied.
I want a man who is too dumb to hide
And you've sealed your fate.
Now I'm laughing on your grave.

I tried to give you space
Create a longing that no one
could ever replace.
But I was fooling myself
While I was laying in bed
You were holding your ear
To her mouth.

Everybody's got to hold their rank.
Everybody's got to hold. Hold.

Cause I want a heart that is not occupied.
I want a man who is too dumb to hide
And you've sealed your fate.
Now I'm laughing on your grave.

Everybody's gotta hold, Everybody's gotta hold.
Their rank.
Track Name: Her, Her, Her
Oh everyone says that you are in love.
But I don't think you are and here is why.
Oh everyone says that you are in love.
But I don't think you are and here is why

Cause you talk about her her her too much.
When you should be painting portraits of my face.
Cause you talk about her her her too much.
And that is why our love can not take place.

Oh everyone says that I am just crazy
But crazy never looked so good did it baby?
Oh everyone says that I am just crazy, oh.
But crazy's the only way to be.

When you talk about her her her too much.
When you should be writing poems on my skin.
Oh you talk about her her her too much
And that is why your love cannot get in.

Oh everyone says that I am in love.
But I can tell you surely that I'm not.
Oh everyone says that I am in love.
Oh, but like a gun you're chances are now shot.

Cause you talk about her her her too much.
When she shouldn't hold a candle to me.
Oh you talk about her her her too much
And that is why our love will never be.
That is why our love will never be.
Track Name: Summertime
Oh, Oh, Oh, It's summertime.
Everyone is drinking and they've got a little moonbeam
On their mind.

Oh, Oh, Oh, let the cold wind go.
Everyone is kissing and they're sipping out the garden house.
Whiskey now in rows.

It's gonna melt your heart gonna melt your heart.
I don't want to love you
I don't even wanna start.
But it's gonna melt your heart, gonna melt your heart.

Oh, Oh, Oh let the cotton grow.
Momma's in the kitchen
And she's scraping fingers cross the rows.
Of bread along the stove.

Papa's in the barnyard with the whiskey and the wine.
Papa's getting older and his tiny little heart is hard to find.
Mama searches all the time.

But he don't wanna love her
He don't wanna even start.
I pray it's gonna melt his heart.
Gonna melt his heart.

And when the hot hot heat.
Is coming on.
And the sweat drips from your darlin's arm.
And he just wants to be love.
But with the summer sun, with the summer sun, with the summer sun.
The demons gonna come.

Oh, oh, oh, it's summertime.
Baby's in the kitchen
And his tiny little mouth it starts to cry.
It's crying all the time.
Track Name: Suitcase Swimmers
It seems to me you've quarantined your little hands
From ever interlocking with mine.
It seems to me you've quarantined your little heart
From ever setting foot up from the south.

And no medicine no therapy
Could ever fix this hole in me.
So I'm singing
Bye bye bye

And good for me my childhood house has fixed its glass
And covered all its cracks with styrofoam
But whoa is me my family will not grow back
What good is a pretty house with a broken home.

And no medicine no therapy
Could ever fix this hole in me.
So I'm singing
Bye bye bye

I I I I I finally understand that
I I I I I have a red right hand.
Track Name: Whiskey Sinners
I'm a steal driving woman
With my heart in the grass
And a total radio face.
I've got blisters on my feet.
And a little heart that bleeds
And I'm running from the law today.

But I don't want to die
I don't want to die

And a bullet for to blame
For all our hurt and sorrow
But lets talk upon the morrow
Cause tonight there is only one thing.

That I don't want to die
No I don't want to die

Without your limbs to hold me
No, I don't want to die
Without your lips to scold me
No, I don't want to die

And all the whiskey sinners
Who are hunting down our innards
and trying to put em on display
Are coupled with miss misery
She's always been a friend to me
And she's gonna lead us to the grave

But I don't want to die
No, I don't want to die

Slow it down or I'll throw up
And I'll spill my coffee cup
Come on darling let's make love.
Before, they find us.

So let's ignore the fire
All their bullets will expire
Oh they're gonna run right out of darts
And yeah I see your bleeding
But get up darling we're leaving
Cause that bullet didn't make it through your heart

And I don't want to die
No I don't want to die

Without your limbs to hold me.
No I don't want to die.
Without your lips to scold me.
No I, don't want to die.
