Track Name: Crack First
here we sit in a darkened office
hanging light pendulates between us
i think you too are tied to your chair
i don't see either of us going anywhere

which of us will crack first crack first which of us will
who's gonna get to the bottom of who
which of us will crack first crack first who's gonna spill
i feel it coming in a second or two

i need a second or third to process
how unlikely it is you confess
but i think i saw it in the way that you blink
and i think i heard it in the way that you think

which of us will crack first crack first which of us will
who's gonna get to the bottom of who
which of us will crack first crack first who's gonna spill
i feel it coming in a second or two

'cause i'm twice or thrice as lucid in this moment with you
and i no longer control the things my brain's gonna do
and i'm holding out on hoping that the same is gonna happen to you

i tore my case notes in twain and thrain
and i watched you take yours and do the same
do you dare me to go on the record?
do you dare me?

which of us will crack first crack first which of us will
who's gonna get to the bottom of who
which of us will crack first crack first who's gonna spill
i feel it coming in a second or two

'cause i'm twice or thrice as lucid in this moment with you
and i no longer control the things my brain's gonna do
and i'm holding out on hoping that the same is gonna happen to you
Track Name: Minnie Mouse
she's the woman of the year (minnie mouse)
and the woman with the ears (minnie mouse)
you could say she's just a mouse (just a mouse)
the taj mahal is just a house (what a house)
minnie minnie i like minnie

george had martha washington (minnie mouse)
ozzie had his harriet (minnie mouse)
and beside the greatest mouse (you know who)
stands out to be minnie mouse (dressed in blue)
minnie minnie i like minnie

minnie mouse, we've never met
but to me, you're juliet
minnie mouse, don't ever change
minnie mouse, don't ever change

minnie where'd you learn to act (minnie mouse)
minnie where'd you learn to dance (minnie mouse)
she's a real rarity (in this day)
everything comes naturally (i would say)
minnie minnie je t'aime minnie

minnie where'd you get that dress (minnie mouse)
it's parisian, i would guess (minnie mouse)
minnie where'd you get that smile (it's so neat)
you could make my life worthwhile (and complete)
minnie minnie i like minnie

minnie mouse, we've never met
but to me, you're juliet
minnie mouse, don't ever change
minnie mouse, don't ever change

she can sing and act and dance (minnie mouse)
she looks good in skirts or pants (minnie mouse)
she is loved in any land (minnie mouse)
but i am her biggest fan (minnie mouse)
Track Name: Target
shake all of the dirt
off of your shirt
and later on we'll have dessert
gooseberry pie

i bet you'd look better on target
everything is better on target
a million clay pigeons would defend it
if they weren't the ones on target

john
i don't know what to do
i'm having second thoughts
i can't make mine go off

i tried pulling on the trigger but it won't shoot
i tried cleaning out the barrel but it won't shoot
and now i'm trying to remember if it was true
that when i'm pulling on the trigger it's supposed to

swab all of the spots
off of your yacht
and later on we'll all take shots
b-52s

i bet you'd look better on target
everything is better on target
a million clay pigeons would defend it
if they weren't the ones on target
Track Name: Moisture
someone saw a strange amount of moisture on her lips
and it was also seen upon her arms and on her hips

no one knew exactly who she was or how she died
but when they opened up her purse they found a snail inside
Track Name: Arms Of Mine
i can't control these arms of mine
i can't control these arms of mine

when i turn around, they swivel all over the place
when i turn around, slapped the prime minister in the damn face

i can't control these arms of mine
i can't control these arms of mine

i
i don't know
i can't tell you
i don't want to tell you

i can't control these arms of mine
i can't control these arms of mine

the few crumpled bills that i have in my pants
i'm an american and i carry american cash

i can't control these arms of mine
i can't control these arms of mine

i
i don't know
i can't help you
i don't want to help you
Track Name: Cave Slug
i wanna be a cave slug sucking moisture off the wall
who could beat a cave slug? doesn't have to move at all
though what happens next will dictate how i live and how i die
i'd rather be a cave slug, embracing everything that implies

slid into the kitchen, greeted by the tv news
i'd choose not to listen but there's nothing left to lose
could it be a new regime's finally seizing control?
wouldn't feel displaced, god, it'd be ace in a foxhole

i could be a cave slug, sucking moisture off the wall
who could beat a cave slug? doesn't have to move at all
though what happens next will dictate how i live and how i die
i'd rather be a cave slug, embracing everything that implies

i could build a statue, work my body, not my mind
i'm not 2 live for that crew, i'll leave artistry behind
but i don't want a number on a jumper as my name
couldn't see myself succeed if algebra's the game

can't even act like i don't care
'cause there's some wadjets there
with a plan for me
don't wanna question my own fate
'cause there's a guy who waits
with electricity
i take a breath and move into the street

i could be a cave slug, sucking moisture off the wall
who could beat a cave slug? doesn't have to move at all
though what happens next will dictate how i live and how i die
i'd rather be a cave slug, embracing everything that implies
