Yard (free) 02:17
There's about a million reasons why I should go out of my way to never drive But there's a billion radios in my mind and my car has only got the one I won't look back on this time with pride no matter what but gas is cheap And I can't sing myself to sleep five times a week It's too early to think about leaving you again Give me time enough for coffee and we'll see what happens then I've tried from every side and I still don't understand how you can be so good for me far away and so bad in the here and now It's been twenty months and all I've figured out is how many buttons to keep unbuttoned at the top of my buttondown shirt Wherever I go, there we are We will never have a yard
2.
Diseases (free) 03:38
this city is the size of a parking space, i need to go where nobody knows me and every memory is a public place, i need to go where nobody knows me diseases fall into my head, i can't sleep diseases fall into my head, i can't breathe the reasons are all inside my head, and i can't find them, and it's killing me diseases fall into my head, you wouldn't know me thought i had you when i gripped the air you're all that i can see and you were never there everybody always knew my name from when i was with you now nobody knows exactly where i came from unless they know you too burned a couple bridges and i packed my bags melted down my rifles and i waved my flag a handful of air to remind me of all we had you'll never know how much i loved that air

Hopscotch (free) 02:29
It's always a game It's all I can do not to play You made it look fun I'm filled up to the brow with your delusionally halfassed apologies Red wine looks better on me than it sounds when it's inside you And it wasn't for nothing that your mother said the things she said to me You tell her everything you do I don't give a flying fuck about some pock-marked oil executive Telling you you make him want to leave his wife He's not wearing his wedding ring these days, you know That shit set sail six weeks ago He's just preparing you to put up with what you'll be in the future - Another used and miserable creature - If you should sleep with him more than twice You stepped over the line, baby that's fine You'll always know where I am when you're in a jam It matters not what you do, I'll be waiting for you You stepped over the line, baby that's fine

The Stomach Thing (free) 01:03
before you were just a sad sorry sorry stupid story i sometimes tell to people ignoring you hurt too much i felt it in my gut awful nausea fatal chemistry it got the best of me and time and time again it tripped me up the only girls that i've loved previously i loved them foolishly the stomach thing was always just embarrassing i'm starting to miss it again

Checklist (free) 00:38
Check these off your brother's checklist: 22, three kids and syphilis Backtrack down to the practice part of town When the fakers meet their makers I'll make sure we're not around Twilight heroes disdaining all the jazzbos The jazzbos, they just chuckle alone I could not even leave here if you cared I was still here
