Track Name: Your Majesty
Your majesty, your majesty,
your power is your charm

Your majesty, your majesty,
conviction is your crime.

You’re smiling when you’re lying
and your lying when you smile.

I’m picking up
what you’re putting down.
I’m picking up
what you’re putting down.
down down down


I speak of you,
you speak for me.
it’s a shallow mating call.

fall in line or fall apart
it’s a live hysteria.

I joined the establishment
you are the establishment
I joined the establishment
you are the establishment
Track Name: Muzak at Dusk
There was a time
when I burned my words,

I tossed the ashes
in the urn.

But now I’ve learned
these are my best defense

Represent me
in this court of apathy.

This is not a plea,
It’s a battlecry:
when accusations fly,
proud men lie.


Take me to
the spot on the earth
the polar opposite
new york city

where everything
is momentarily,
monumentally
fine.


I sing the asphalt boy
its true and authentic.
when I said I live with you,
You know I meant it.

I trust you have my
intentions in mind.
So please tell me
This is no conspiracy.

My floodgates are open
Sincerity is flowing
I gave away my retail
At the great garage sale


I’m the polar opposite.
The polar opposite
of new york city.


Take me to
the spot on the earth
the polar opposite
new york city

where everything
is momentarily
monumentally
fine
Track Name: Market Street in the Morning
today is the day of sirens,
3 nuns
in the back of my car

The Henry hotel
I knew him well
His sideburns were gorgeous

I walk up town
with my fly down
it’s a so called death

it’s a downtown situation
it’s a downtown situation

habit is the sum of habit
habit is the sum
habit is the sum of habit
habit is the sum




It was eleven eleven.
smelled like depression.
its the end of the middle of the road.

she sitting all alone
the cars off, she’s crying
the real estate blew off the curb

Keep on walkin
your three legged dog.
just Keep on walkin
your three legged dog.




trolley, trolley,
trolley, trolley,
I creep.
trolley, trolley,
trolley, trolley,
I crawl down market street.

trolley, trolley,
trolley, trolley,
I creep.
trolley, trolley,
trolley, trolley,
I’m this city’s artery.



you don’t want
to do anything
for anyone
anymore.

you’re getting better at lying
You’re getting better at lying to yourself.

habit is the sum of habit
is the sum of habit.
Track Name: My Vanishing Point
you remember everything
you remember everything
you bring it back for me

the taste of the gum
in the baseball pack.
the sound of the fuse
of the fire crack.
there’s a rock in my hand.
I let it fly.
the glass door breaks,
I learn to lie.


there was the day,
I ran away.
I climed out on the roof
and hid in the dusk.
would I be gone for good?
from this neighborhood

this vantage point
is my vanishing point.


I don’t know
but you don’t care

Let’s go home.
