Track Name: Deadbeat Heart
I just woke up and everything's brighter
I just saw the sun on my pile of debris
I just felt my load get 100 pounds lighter
I just realized what a deep breath can be
You make my deadbeat heart beat hard
I gotta clean these skulls and mummies off and get em out of my yard
Voice from the other side, come tell the future wrong
You make my deadbeat heart beat strong

I gotta brush these leaves aside and drink the cold fresh air
I gotta clean these valves and hoses before I can touch your hair
Tiny explosions in tiny rooms all get together and they sound like the sea
Now the smoke's clearing out of all of our wombs, and I can hear you and you can hear me
You make my deadbeat heart beat hard
I gotta clean these skulls and mummies off and get em out of my yard
Tiny explosions in tiny rooms all get together and they sound like the sea
Now I'm feeling my deadbeat heart beating me

I'm cleaning up and I hope you'll come see me soon
I'm on deadbeat alley by the shed where they're keeping the moon
By the shed where they're tying up and beating up the moon
By the shed where they're tying up and beating up the moon
Let's you and me set free the moon
Let's you and me set free the moon, the moon
Track Name: I Ain't In Love No More
I just came from the doctor, she says that I'm just fine
But there's a black hole on the X-ray, once was yours but now it's mine
I can fill it with 31 flavors, I can hog the bed and snore
I ain't gonna think about you at all because I ain't in love no more

Some women think they like me, and I think about them too
And I never never never never never never never never never never think about you
I can flirt with crabs and crawfish and the fruit at the grocery store
The whole world is my oyster, because I ain't in love no more

I live alone with my smart phone and a broken-ass computer
I put up bars to heal my scars and keep my heart safe from looters
Some women think they like me but they can smell that something's wrong
They can somehow view I got ditched by you, then they smile and march along

Some women think they like me, and I think about them too
And I never never never never never never never never never never think about you
I can flirt with calamari rings and stare at the seafood store
The whole world is my oyster, because I ain't in love no more.
Track Name: Vulture Sing
I got something to call home
A shifting sand bed web of telephones
And I don't wanna leave you


alone


But I'm pulled in all directions but my own.

Morning is the coldest time of day
And I just found the coldest thing to say

You love how the rain makes the red clay brighter
You love how the darkness makes your soft skin whiter
You make the best out of everything
You love to hear that vulture sing to you.

We got stuck in the wrong time
We're out of breath and out to lose our minds
How did you get so blind?
You run to the things that treat you so unkind.

Nighttime is the longest time of day
when you come home late and you take the longest way

You love how the rain makes the red clay brighter
You love how the plague makes the world's load lighter
You make the best out of everything
You love to hear that vulture sing to you.

You love how the wind makes the houses dance
Dance to the rhythm of a bad romance
You call me back into the thorns and brambles
You love the art of making life a shambles
You make the best out of everything
You love to hear that vulture sing to you.
Track Name: Indispensible
I don't need the birds above me or the fish down in the sea
You're indispensible, it's indefensable, that you'd ever be lost to me
I can live without the milkman or electricity
You're irreplaceible and so embraceible by the lowly likes of me

You can keep the floor below me, you can have the roof above
I don't need food or water, baby, so long as I've got your love
I'm done with all God's creatures and the people I see
You're indispensible, it's only sensable, you're the only one for me

I don't need the birds above me or the fish down in the sea
You're indispensible, it's indefensable, that you'd ever be lost to me
I can live without the eggman goo goo goo joob or electricity
You're irreplaceible and so embraceible by the lowly likes of me

I don't mind the cold or if my house goes falling down
The only thing that scares me is the day you're not around
I'm done with all God's creatures and the people I see
You're indispensible, it's only sensable, you're the only one for me
Track Name: Fish Sauce Blues
I was eating bún this morning and I spilled fish sauce on my leg
I was eating bún this morning and I spilled fish sauce on my leg
I don't got a lot of money, costs an extra dollar for the egg

I got phở to drown my sorrows but I still hang my head down low
I got phở to drown my sorrows but I still hang my head down low
My baby up and left me, she don't wanna phở me any more

I got a bánh mì in my pocket, gonna knock her upside the head
I got a bánh mì in my pocket, gonna knock her upside the head
All that pig meat and cilantro, knock any cheating woman dead
