Track Name: Love You So
Why don’t we drink until we’ve had our fill?
Why don’t we sleep until we’re tired?
Why do we think we have this time to kill?
Why do we fall into the briar?

Why don’t we wake up when the day is new?
And keep our heads under the covers?
How do we break out of this portmanteau?
And keep our arms around each other?

I love you so, I love you so
I love you so, I want to know
Do you love me so?

Why don’t we stay in this garden grove?
Why don’t we sleep until December?
Why don’t we pray for these days to grow?
Into nights we spend together

I love you so, I love you so
I love you so, I want to know
Do you love me so?
Track Name: Disgruntled Bankers
I can’t keep myself from the anger
My employment place full of rancor
We sit here like disgruntled bankers
Pulled down like we got weighted anchors
Attached to our legs
Stuck like pegs
In pegboard partitions

I just passed my car inspection
Me new auspicious direction
No flu no viral inspection
The day is new and it feels like perfection
New moonshine, rock steady
All wracked up but never ready

I rely on you,
I never lied to you,
I rely on you,
You can rely on me too

I can’t keep myself from the feeling
Or keep the room from its reeling
I hold on to you for my balance
I’m like the kid who spent his allowance
On baseball cards and gum
I’m just as dumb, as I was
When I was young

I just buried my gut reaction
I married my dissatisfaction
No service no reception
Just me and my new deception
No honeymoon, no travel
The door slams shut just like a gavel

I rely on you,
I never lied to you,
I rely on you,
You can rely on me too

I dropped just like a Catholic
The envelope into the basket
I rise up like a spirit
Am I the only one here who feels it
And I don’t know what’s wrong
It’s just a song that went on for too long
