lyrics

Between the Northern
And the 4th Ave
I’m looking for change
To give my shirt a wash

I woke up at the
Greyhound Station
On a bed of
Leaves and rocks

My eyes they itch so bad
I scratch an imposing mote
And a pickaxe digs for coal
At the bottom of my throat

The streets they all end
Before they begin
But sirens coat the night
Like paraffin

Between novelties and tanks
A thick summer dust
And a vague sign indicates
The National Trust

In the funnies
They called me Charlie Brown
Drawn an abstraction
Of a nondescript frown

In town for how long
God knows
Maybe
How long

A metronome ticking out
My day and night
But I’m losing sense
Of wrong and right
It’s ill advised to pick up
Girls inside of lint screens
They crumble in your pocket
And reappear an incessant itch
And if my dick fell off it’d be all right
With me
All right
All right with me

The streets they all end
Before they begin
But sirens coat the night
Like paraffin

Between novelties and tanks
A thick summer dust
And a vague sign indicates
The National Trust
