Track Name: Stumpgrinder
BOBBY LOST 9 FINGERS
HE ONLY NEEDED ONE
SHE STOLE HIS SMOKES
SNORTED HIS PILLS
STOLE HIS WHOLE FUCKING CHEQUE
AND THEN HE DIED

AND NOW SHE'S HERE
MY SHITS IN THE PAWN SHOP
BEEN STEALING MY CHANGE
SHE'LL STICK AROUND TILL WEDNESDAY
WAITING FOR THAT CHEQUE
SHE'LL TREAT ME NICE
RUB CREAM ON MY STUMP

JOKES ON HER
THEY GOT ME FOR FRAUD
MONEY'S NOT COMING
NO MORE FREE LUNCH
JOKES ON YOU
STUMPGRINDER
JOKES ON YOU
Track Name: Discount Rack
a wrinkled slit holding
a wire brush
glass full of teeth
means a ride on those gums

saline sacks
on a veiny chest
hang a limp lizard
on that discount rack

well is dry
need to seed those clouds
a yellow rain
an open mouth

a rough ride
through the rear entrance
can't break what's
already broke

good things come to those who wait
Track Name: Drop Of Red
LIFE GOES ON FOR SO LONG
IT BECOMES SO ROUTINE
SO MUNDANE
JUST WAITING AND WAITING
FOR SOMETHING, ANYTHING

BUT TAKE A POOL OF YELLOW
AND ADD A DROP OF RED
FEEL THE HAIRS ON THE BACK OF YOUR NECK
STAND UP SO STRAIGHT
SUDDENLY YOU ARE SO AWAKE

NOW TAKE A BUNCH OF BROWN
AND ADD A WHOLE LOT OF RED
YOUR EYES OPEN WIDE
AND YOU FEEL SO ALIVE

LIFE IS SO EMPTY
AND PATHETIC
EVERY DAY JUST
MORE GREY ON GREY

BUT TAKE A POOL OF YELLOW
AND ADD A DROP OF RED
FEEL THE HAIRS ON THE BACK OF YOUR NECK
STAND UP SO STRAIGHT

NOW TAKE SOME BROWN
AND ADD A WHOLE LOT OF RED
YOUR EYES OPEN WIDE
AND YOU FEEL SO ALIVE
IT'S A GIFT
THE BEST YOU'VE EVER HAD
Track Name: Early Retirement
DOCTOR SAID I
MIGHT WANT TO SIT DOWN
WAS PREPARED THE WORST
BUT IT WAS MY LUCKY DAY

HE CALLED IT SOME BULLSHIT
LIKE NON-HODGKIN LYMPHOMA
BUT I KNEW WHAT HE MEANT
FREEDOM 55

TIME TO START SMOKING AGAIN
TIME TO FALL OFF THE WAGON
GOING TO CALL IN SICK TODAY
GOING TO CALL IN SICK TODAY

EARLY RETIREMENT
EARLY RETIREMENT
EARLY RETIREMENT
EARLY RETIREMENT
Track Name: Unsolicited Eulogy
SO I'D LIKE TO SAY A FEW WORDS
FIRST OFF, WHO SERVES FISH AT A FUCKING FUNERAL
AND YOU CAN TAKE THIS WHITE WHINE AND RAM IT UP YOUR FUCKING ASS

HEY GET YOUR HANDS OFF ME
I GOT A FUCKING RIGHT TO BE HERE

SO I'LL TELL YOU WHAT HE LIKED
SEX TOURISM
AND YOUNG ASIAN WHORES

BUT LET'S LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
OPEN CASKET
AND HEY, THE WIDOW SURE LOOKS FINE
IN THAT LITTLE BLACK NUMBER

FUCK IT, GIVE ME THAT WHITE WINE
Track Name: Needles
I DON'T WANT THE PILLS
I WANT THE NEEDLE
NO USE MY RIGHT ARM
THE ONE WITH ALL THE BRUISES

I LIKE TO WATCH YOU DIGGING AROUND
YOU WANT TO GIVE UP
BUT IT'S YOUR FUCKING JOB
YOU HAVE TO DO IT

I DON'T WANT THE PILLS
GIVE ME THE NEEDLE
EVERY FOUR HOURS
UNTIL ONE OF US CHECKS OUT
Track Name: Nazmoon And Daniel
Nazmoon loved Daniel
Daniel was 80 years old
He was her full-time job
Until Daniel tripped and fell

Pushing an empty wheelchair
with Daniel close behind
just crossed the barricades
when she hears Daniel cry out

Daniel fell on the tracks
Nazmoon came to help
but that train comes with a fury
it just flies right on through

whistle kept blowing
then squealling brakes
now there's a body under the train
with another on the road
wheelchair stuck in the tracks
not a pleasant sight
Track Name: Paydirt
a moist ring
for your index finger
i'll let you know
when you hit paydirt

going deep with
your long fingers
look me in the eyes
as you crack my walnut

it hasn't been a year
but who can wait
a glistening rosebud
as a birthday gift

i'll let you know
when you hit paydirt

i'll let you know
when you hit paydirt
Track Name: Winning
IT'S A STRANGE RACE WHERE THE LAST TO FINISH GETS THE PRIZE

A KINKED HOSE TO THE OXYGEN TANK
BUTTON FOR HELP JUST OUT OF REACH
STRUGGLING AND CRYING OUT JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU'RE A SORE LOSER

A WIDE OPEN VALVE ON THE MORPHINE DRIP
A PILLOW PRESSED DOWN WITH A FIRM GRIP
I'VE GROWN TO LOVE THE SOUND OF SIRENS CAUSE I'M A WINNER

THEY COVERE THE FACES OF THE LOSERS
MAKING A TROPHY FROM THEIR SHAME
EVERY STRETCHER THAT LEAVES WHILE I'M STILL HERE MEANS I'M A WINNER
Track Name: Stroke Of Genius
I CAN'T MOVE MY RIGHT LEG
I CAN'T LIFT MY RIGHT ARM
I'M SO STUPID NOW
I'M SO HAPPY NOW
IT'S LIKE I'VE HAD A STROKE OF GENIUS

THE RIGHT SIDE OF MY FACE
DOESN'T WORK RIGHT
CAN'T MOVE MY LIP
DON'T HAVE TO ANSWER THE PHONE ANYMORE
DON'T HAVE TO GET THE FUCKING DOOR
I'VE HAD A STROKE OF GENIUS
