Track Name: Interesting Thing No. 2
I can see it in the desperate look you have in your eyes
you turned 25, so many things you haven't tried
You said you thought I was boring, maybe true
But maybe, baby it's a different thing with you

You leave at different times
and get up in the same place
You claim to be different, baby
but you've got familiar ways

I may be wrong
you might be on to something
What else (do do do do) could be going on
Track Name: Afraid
I might forget about every useful thing you do
I might ignore you when you want to hang around
I will agree when I agree, I say
Don't be afraid

I put my hand out to my right and I felt your chest
then I covered up my eyes and saw your face
we will do everything we dreamt about someday
Don't be afriad
we just can't go about it any other way

I might forget about every useful thing you do
I might ignore you when you want to fuck around
I will agree when I agree, I say
Don't be afraid
I just can't think about it any other way
Track Name: Talk
You're gonna talk through this and not care
I know you're gonna talk through this and not care
Someone turn up the heat
it's so cold in here
Someone bring me some meat
tastes like ozone and beer
(I know, I know)

You came to me and told me about your friends
you take a week, a pinch of sleet
and you slip on the ice again
(I know, I know)

You're gonna talk through this
I know you're gonna talk through this
(I know, I know)
Track Name: Shut Up
You will say, all the time, what you think about
And I stand, and I nod, and I wait around
I'm gonna pull myself together and simplify some things
and shut up

You overwork, all the time, and you're tired again
and I stand, and I nod, and I sigh and stretch
I'm gonna try to get a haircut, a shampoo and a shave
and shut up

I'm not here, I'm a drunk, and I'm on my own
You get up, tie your shoes and go on home
I'm gonna watch you walk outside now and make a stupid face
and shut up
Track Name: Jon
Jon you're on the phone
talking about your girl
and you're on
it's a game--your sick game

Longing for a heart
she's caring at a loss
Empty pockets, sunken purse
It's her turn

Jon you're on the phone
crying about your girl
'cause she's gone
left your game--players game
Track Name: 2U
You say you don't know
You can't even fake adulthood anymore
You say you don't care
You say you don't know what to do

Well,
I see you swimming
I'm doing it too
I'm doing it too
2 u

You say you don't think
You don't listen and you never let them speak
You get dressed up
Wanna go out, have some fun

Well,
I see you swimming
I'm doing it too
I'm doing it too
2 u
Track Name: Cassandra B.
It's not a problem, it's a wolf on your back
we had some vodka saw intelligent rap
It was a bald white guy with a mumu onstage
and you were throwing up
It was a slick horror flick on a Chinese set
in a basement apartment a block of Madison

Maybe I should have tried to adapt
and maybe I could be a little more careful
instead of always throwing myself headfirst
into unfortunate crap
Instead of always puling the same tricks
that never really worked the first time and don't work now

I even lied some, I have to admit
because I tried to convince you I was the type
that reads Willa Cather and shit like that
but the binding wasn't cracked
You know I only bought that book for some stupid
class I had to take, anyway
Track Name: Zone
You're lost in a pit
you panic with the bills and medicine
Stop the game of 'what you said'
maybe go away instead
you don't have to care about this bull

Don't touch me, I'm in my zone

You lie in bed
and you hear some muffled whistling from the vents
You think about the fight last night
your mother gave the gift of spite
it's not fair to kick me in the groin

And don't touch me, I'm in my zone

But it's ok
because your tits are on a TV show today
get along, the plane is leaving
it's 'go and see the fam' this season
you can always hoof it in the snow

And don't touch me, I'm in my zone
