You’ve been arrested pinched and molested

Track Name: Ice Cubes
Ice Cubes

D D F G Bfl C (intro)

F C Bfl line

By herself on the highest shelf slept the widow Sal
Flashlights shook everywhere we looked couldn’t find our pal,

Dm Dm6 G Am

stirring shape there’s a body in this bed,
this could be our frail, as doornail
lights are off and we better keep them off,
as the darkness floods abandoned hearts

Wake up Sal, won’t you wake up Sal it will be alright,
life is long, you can leave some other day when we’re grey

A-3 D-3 C# D

Never mind what voices say
Keep the ice cubes in the tray
Without you there’s less of us
Balance tilts and we are dust

Save your hide drown your anger in a fight
in a glass or pills, body thrills
Anything just to keep you in this scene,
be sick, gulp cough, we’ll be togetherills.

Never mind what voices say
Keep the ice cubes in the tray
Without you there’s less of us
Balance tilts and we are dust
Track Name: Home
HOME

instr. d-Bm d-Dm F stuff
Am C F E7

Home is where I want to hang my head
not your head but your hat
Home poisoned snakes inside the bed,
and they feel right at
Home, where our children learned to walk
walk away from this
Where our futures don’t exist and the past is erased

F Am G Bm
F Am A G (A Bfl)

I guess you’ll know when you dug a deep enough row
Alarmed control, changed the code, stocked the moat
(and we ride)

Home, pitter patter, biscuit batter
I remember it all
Home where the walls enclosed our space , little verse of our own
Home this one thing you no longer need, but it
held up our home
where the futures don’t exist so let’s smash it all down

I guess you’ll know, when you dealt the last blow,
Bits of dough under the stove
doorpost notches painted ov’
Em C - Dm d-C d-B; C c-B c-A (piano!)

Re wa lamafy
never thought this happen to me
My head is safe, but it’s no home for us
My car is a space,but it doesn’t fit us
(instr guitar Em C,and intro)
Track Name: Second Chances
Second Chances
C#m F#m (a - b - bfl)

take a pencil draw a line
you decide
on the top the digit one
bottom decide

C#m A E F#

I want you to know, that while you plough through
I want to get a 2nd chance with you
(instr)
I want to get … I know you want it too.

I don’t want to see the runts
Let them run
all i want is wedded bliss
old moron

I want you to know, that while you tractor through
I want to get a 2nd chance with you
(instr)
I want to get … I know you want it too.

C#m F#m C#m A B
oh ty oh ty malenki starenki durachok
oh ty oh ty malenki starenki homyachok shozh ty?

E F#m E F#m C#m D

Let’s get back together baby
let’s buy back the family farm
we can raise pigs there’s a chimney
and the kids could swing outside

there’s a kettle in the farmhouse
whistling like a birthing mare
and no one to take it odd babe,
let’s buy back the fucking farm

I want you to know, that while you tractor through
I want to get a 2nd chance with you
(instr)
I want to get … I know you want it too.
Track Name: Resigned to Attack
Resigned to Attack

D A F#m E E6 E-E6 D Fmaj7

Resigned to Attack, to tired to rest,
with shallow breaths and a sunken breast,
I know, I know I’m not looking my best.

One package arrives, ordinary surprise,
two marbles for eyes and earthquake supplies,
I know, I know I signed the documents fast.

Here comes the groom, bursting out of the womb,
Collier tycoon sad sucker in bloom,
I know I know, just (D) let me feel this way,
(Dm) on this day in this room (Fmaj7)
and you can have the rest.

D F

Don’t sleep till you had enough
Don’t sweat till you had enough
Don’t spit till you had enough
Don’t slit till you had enough

Am C D F#m
Am E7 Am

How do you do it my belle
push me right into the well
I put up the fences I hold to last chances
I even made you wear warning bells

Some nights I wake up in my dream, my doll
on the inside of an icicle ball
shivering wrinkly and numb
you know what to do don’t play dumb

I’m gonna lick lick lick away, gonna lick away
gonna lick my wounds out of here, you hear?
Track Name: Begin the Begun
Begin the Begun

Cm Am Fm F(A)

I can walk I can talk and I’m thinking of a joke
there’s a man on the ledge yelling dog my slippers fetch

C Em Dm F (remember doo wop piano melody)

And when I promised you the yellow stars,
my woman my friend,
I didn’t mean the one sewn on your arm

C Em Dm(3) F(2-2)

Pack two shirts and 4 socks,
pack abraham’s hair locks
fill a jar with pure spirt, leave piano open lid

And when i promised we would travel, my daughter my son,
i lied i didn’t want to scare you,
the beg has begun

Fm(3) Fm+b (2) Dm6 (10)
Cm Dm Dm6 Fm Gm G

Is there place for us, I don’t know my son
Is the boat at sea, I don’t know tuman
Are the tumors felt underneath the skin
with your fingers soft you can squeeze disease

Fm(3) Fm+c# (2) Dm6 (10)
Cm Dm Dm6 Efl G/d

Will the train arrive - I don’t know my son,
If the train don’t come, we will walk all night
Will the guard dogs bite, I don’t know my son
but in the morning light we won’t give a fuck
we’re not in control and there is no god
but the warmth you feel is real is real.
Track Name: Second Glances
2nd Glances

Am D Am D F Em Am

In this world of accidents
I deserve a second glance
On the rubble heap I stay
unrepentant castaway

C dm F Am (double kick)

I’m gonna wait for something more
or should i dock at the first shore
I’m gonna wait for someone else
someone to blow up in my sails

All your friends have burned their pants
i deserve a 2nd chance
though it stings in the chest cavity
rue the day you set me free

I’m gonna wait for something more
or should i dock at the first shore
I’m gonna wait for someone else
someone to blow up in my sails
Bfl C
F C (A)Bfl
Dm Am Gm C7

Something by the way that you set your look
I could tell you never read my book
I know it sounds funny but I like how hoarse your voice becomes
when we shout “bombs over atlantic”

God could not dam a river even if he tried
with a thousand beaver working day and night
we need the electricity, goddamn this reciprocity
shout with me “bombs over atlantic”
Track Name: Olyssa
Olyssa

Dmaj7 D(7) or c#-Dmaj7 Fm A Bfl-e-f# Bm G

Dmaj7 D(7) Em A Bfl-e-f# Bm G

Olyssa your chord is Dmajor
my chord is F minor
and I really effed up, i did
Olyssa, your chord is Dmajor
my chord is f minor
between we can’t bend round the sharp

O listen, Olyssa you never did listen
when i asked you to run
before i broke your cup

Olyssa inside me there’s charcoal
ashes of tomorrow I just couldn’t
do it twice lead butterflies.

D Am Bm G Bfl-e-g Bfl-e-f# ..

broke a hip chasing a rodent
getting called old by my daughter
all these i kept you hid
now i popped open the lid
tend me a whiskey and listen
i have a risky mission
convince her to make a decision
and let this bastard in.
