Track Name: Idol
do you have a god?
does he get what he wants?
Track Name: Schatzie
trying not to look around in a crowd
trying not to look around
trying not to look around in a crowd
trying not to look around

she's got you
in the one and only
place you're safe
in her head, you don't talk
out of turn, out of taste
she's got her eyes wide
shut, she don't remember
your face
i've got my eyes wide
i remember your face

no card games or yahtzee
just me & my schatzie
i keep what i've got, see it's
me & my schatzie
me & my schatzie
me &

i ain't gonna meet you
on the far side of the bed
i am a middle child
i'm here to claim
the whole damn spread
we've been hanging out, it's true
me & my idea of you
i can lose him if you help me
see him out instead

no card games or yahtzee
just me & my schatzie
i keep what i've got, see it's
me & my schatzie
me & my schatzie
me &
Track Name: Ice Box
i'm having quite a time
a hell of a time
an impossible time
giving up on you

tell me what you've got
for me in your ice box
i'm sick of picking
that lock, of liking
the cold
it sticks to my hands 'til they shake -
it's hard to keep ahold
of the drink i have made of you,
bitters & olive juice

it burns straight though
the first few times
but now i don't taste you
now i can't taste you

i'd been underground
'til the day that you called
it's like you to send for
the things that i've gone through
the things that you know
are so hard to hold onto

but here you are,
calling me,
digging me
out of my sleep.

now i ain't no caretaker
but i'll be your man-handler
you've got your own flatliner
since you wake the dead
now you've got your prayers answered
and you put a smile on me
but i don't have to tell you
just what it means

i saw you, Death
you reached out your hand
the way women do
when they want something else
from a man

your gauzy breath
enfolded and jammed me
into a jelly-like mold of myself
i'll wait for you to melt
'til i drip with joy
that i got to dance with you
long enough to know
not to take you
long enough to know
not to take you
home
long enough to know
not to take you
long enough to know
not to take you
home

now i ain't no caretaker
but i was your man-handler
you had your own flatliner
since you woke the dead
now you've got your prayers answered
and you put a smile on me
but i don't have to tell you
just what it means.
Track Name: Holly
i'm not going to crouch
until you take me
for how little i was
the new year's slinking
at my back to smack
its alligator jaws
that part a bit too wide
for comfort
in the curling fog

you've got me parked
back on the tarmac
for all to see
you've got your big jet plane
you've got your somewhere to be
well, i've got somewhere to be
yeah, i've got somewhere to be

what happens next?
i got my answer
when you brushed me aside
and kept me close,
close by
for cabin checks
you always count on them
to keep me alive

what bliss can curdle
on the surface
with each thought drowned
how many?
they all sound the same to me now

well did they fight?
i could see your head
it tipped to the side
as they would struggle
for weight, and then die
let me mourn them and hope
that i wasn't alone from the start
as i stood by a cave
with the tide rushing out
hearing words in the wind
that was caught in your mouth

what happens next?
i got my answer
when you brushed me aside
and kept me close
close by
for cabin checks
as if i needed them
to keep me alive

new is a fraud
you haven't cornered into
coming clean
i found your heart, miss scarlett!
part red, part green
i am no gentlemen
i've come to claim
the holly queen

you've quite the light
i let it hit me when
no other could
i think i'll keep the shadow
he has always stood
behind me where
i thought you would

what happens next?
i got my answer
when you brushed me aside
and kept me close
close by
for cabin checks
as if i needed them
to keep me alive
Track Name: Alvin
where's my vulgar ring?
Track Name: Arrange Me
i'll see you again
my favorite song
always comes back on
you talk stakes
'til you're blue in the face
i know what i'm in for
and i know what you're in for
i know what i'm in for
and i keep my place

tell me what you want
-- or not, it's all clever
and anyhow, i ain't gotta wait
cuz i'm a good guesser
i'm a good guesser
and i guess you want me
and i guess you got me
and i guess you want me
and i keep my place

i'll offer up a trade
that you can take or leave
i'll give you all the pieces
of what's left of me
and if you can arrange them
and still see your girl
if you can arrange them
and still see your girl
honey, keep'em
cuz i got what i need

i'll see you again
my favorite song
always comes back on
you talk stakes
'til you're blue in the face
i know what i'm in for
and i know what you're in for
i know what i'm in for
and i keep my place.
