Track Name: Bites
All these little guys
Are exploiting our whole species
Using up our blood
And leaving us in pieces

And after they have gone (have gone)
We're squirming like snakes
Applying our ointment
We run our nails through our legs

With every trip outdoors
The fortress gets stronger
But those guys get through
It just takes a little longer
Track Name: X's in Squares
We talk when we get thirsty
Down there in a communal kitchen
Buckled in chairs feeling antsy
No sound but the fridge compressor

And all the while the seasons change
But I'm not feelin' any younger

I have an assembly line
I make little children
With the water I pour them
They'll be too big for the garden

And all the while the seasons change
And I am getting so much older

I'm gonna hit the road
I'm gonna make you cry
It's easy come and easy go
Is there something in your eye?
Is there something in your eye?

There ain't a resolution
So I draw x's in squares
July, August, September
Soon comes rebellion

It's interesting that the calendar's full
But your name's not even listed
Yeah, your name's not even listed!

I'm gonna hit the road
I'm gonna make you cry
It's easy come and easy go
Is there something in your eye?
I'm gonna hit the road
I'm marching out the door
A band that holds a stone
Don't need that no more!
I'm marching off to war!

This is the revolution!
This is the revolution!
This is the revolution!
This is the revolution!

(and so on)
Track Name: Somewhere A Home
On the platform by the train
As you're howling out my name
I can feel it running through my bones
My wrist says it's three
And the whistle rings your plea
"Baby, will you please come home?"

What courage I've found
Now I won't turn around
I see your face in the chrome
You see there's a million ways
To plan the perfect escape
For you, baby I can't come home

You made me think I would never hurt!
It was tricky and it was out of your way
But I just need someone to collect all the pieces
In a somewhere very far away
In a somewhere very far away

Ain't no time to linger
Or flaunt the tan-line on my finger
From here I journey alone
But through the rocking of the coach
I can hear you like a ghost,
Saying, "Baby, will you please come home?"
Track Name: The Visit
The wheels hit the tarmac
I'm back in your city
A tangle of taxis
A statue of liberty
And you

oo-wah-oo, oo-wah-oo
oo-wah-oo, oo-wah-oo

I left without warning
When the conference was over
And after an overnight
That left me all sobered up inside

oo-wah-oo, oo-wah-oo
oo-wah-oo, oo-wah-oo

You thought you had me when the sun shined in
And to our bed it formed a path
Running up our legs into our brains
And right back to our past
In my reflection I am greying and
I need more than a friend
I know I say I'm visiting but in reality
This visit will never end

The waiting is over
Spring is in bloom
I have such valor
To storm your single bedroom tonight

oo-wah-oo, oo-wah-oo
oo-wah-oo, oo-wah-oo

oo-wah-oo, oo-wah-oo
oo-wah-oo, oo-wah-oo

You thought you had me when the sun shined in
And to our bed it formed a path
Running up our legs into our brains
And right back to our past
In my reflection I am greying and
I need more than a friend
I know I say I'm visiting but in reality
This visit will never end
