Track Name: Bakelite In The Moonlight
BAKELITE IN THE MOONLIGHT

I don’t think I don’t feel right
Double negatives on elusive dimes
Bakelite in the moonlight
There’s zero hope that I’ll find you here alive.

I wised up, bought a truck, packed it in without warning.
We messed up, batter up, gotta jet if you can’t be in tune.

When we caught fire in the springtime
Happiness was a cold, unconscious lie
Now she’s as sweet as a firefly
A sentimental fool from a lullaby

I wised up, bought a truck, packed it in without warning.
We messed up, batter up, gotta jet if you can’t be in tune.
Track Name: Cons At The New Moon
CONS AT THE NEW MOON

I got my shin splints running
On pavement in my Cons
Can we cheat and lie together
As hack poets fumbling on?

Oh, I did your powdered room
And oh, your potent lines in bloom
Are exposing you.

Your closed door, sweet breath offer
Made sense, made perfect lines
And the swell of revelation
We'd never recognize

Oh, I did your greasy spoon
And oh, I waited at the Moon
All that afternoon.

I got my shin splints running
On pavement in my Cons
Can we cheat and lie together
As hack poets fumbling on?
