Track Name: Guts are not pretty
Guts are not pretty
Blood and bones make a mess
when not kept in their bodies.
And guts are not pretty.
And brains they are quite dumb
when your head’s screwed on wrong.
Wrong!
And once it’s inside you,
Oh God help you!
God help you.
You better hope that he made you
stronger than all your parts.
Because walking around with your insides all out,
and your heart beating,
“oh wherefore art thou!?”
makes nobody proud to have called you their gal.
And you better hope
that your next man
is a doctor.
Track Name: Damn Fools
Damn Fools
Shell and I talked about getting old
with half a smile and with our eyes half closed.
We talked about lovers we were wide-eyed with.
The ones we didn’t calculate a future with.
Now here I am and old age finds me lost in a house of mirrors.
I’m laughing at my misshapen mold.
And looking back at me now,
row on row,
are lovers past who decided that
they did not need to know me now.
Shell and I thought we had it all worked out.
But no-one was more scared than me to find our secrets out.
I knew there was still another phase to come.
But Shell was fooled by nature’s pull
and thought my beauty done.
Now here I am and old age finds me lost in a house of mirrors.
I’m laughing at my misshapen mold.
And looking back at me now,
row on row,
are lovers past who decided that

they did not need to know me now.
And will somebody new
know that I was once
Oh will somebody new
know that I was once
A beautiful,
beautiful,
young
girl?
Now here I am and old age finds me lost in a house of mirrors.
I’m laughing at my misshapen mold.
And looking back at me now,
row on row,
are lovers past who decided that
they did not need to know me now.
Damn Fools.
Damn Fools.
Track Name: Cookies
Cookies
I’m good with what my net has brought in.
I’ve got supper tonight.
I’ve got breakfast for the mornin’.
But it’s just my mouth to feed.
That’s easy.
What I’ve been longing for,
I can’t give me.
I need you to take it from me.
I want to bake ya cookies.
And maybe brew ya some coffee.
And someday baby, maybe, I’d like to have your babies.
But don’t worry darlin’ I’ve got some sweet -tooth on me.
So, what’s your favorite kind?
I want to bake ya cookies.
Maybe chocolate or double chocolate or macadamia nut?
And someday baby, maybe, I’d like to have your babies.
But no hurry darlin’ I can eat lots and lots and lots of cookies.
So, what’s your favorite kind?
I want to bake ya cookies.
And maybe brew ya some coffee.
That’s all.
And someday baby, maybe, I’d like to have your babies.

But no hurry darlin’ I got some sweet- tooth on me.
So, what’s your…
What’s your favorite kind?
Track Name: Last Noel
Last Noel
Callin all sailors. Callin all soldiers.
Callin all cowboys. Callin all bikers.
Bring forth your tender and I will save you.
I know some lovely ladies,
pure of heart and mind,
who can take you to the other side.
So bring forth your tenders and we will save you.
One of me and one of you.
You can trust us, we’ve been told the truth.
Someday you will go and so will I.
Someday rain will force the waters high.
So come with me now to destiny.
I’ve said some things to lure you over.
Told you some ways that we could flourish.
It was disguised in lies, so I think you should
think about what you would be leaving for it.
It’s no promised land but I’ll promise you this,
I’m a delinquent lover, honest to the core.
I’ll believe no lore.
So let us go on our accord.
Track Name: Cutlery
Cutlery
I woke up very early this morning
to no alarm.
I opened the curtains;
tried to recognize the street I was living on.
I tried to find some clean clothes.
I couldn’t find my shoes.
I tried to put a meal together
with some cans of food.
And I set the table with
the half set of cutlery
I now called my own.
My own.

And I know what happens next.
I know what happens after all of this.
Life goes on.
On.
But you knew that, didn’t you babe?
Did you know that too?
Track Name: Leave me by the river
I noticed you want to get to know me.
Ahhh, how do we go about it?
I a cardinal flower, awaiting a gardener,
to accent his grasses with.
But if you desire more than my nectar and color,
please leave me.
Please leave me by the river.
You, you wise old owl.
Desirous to share your thoughts on the landscapes out there.
I’m listening.
I’m swaying.
I’m loving what you’re saying.
But can you love me
If my design
is simple
like a flower
growing by the river.
The river.
Track Name: Mise-en-scene
I was struck by his swagger.
He was young and unafraid.
So I followed his foot-steps
from The Oxford to Parklane.
You see, I’d just been to the movies
and I’d fallen in love.
The actor was Ben Whishaw
and his potion fit me like a glove.
You know sometimes a story
gets into your belly,
and the big screen, like a starry night above two lovers,
sheds its light upon
selected scenes.
And if you are in a place where
you really feel the hunger,
you might find yourself behind some unsuspecting leading man.
Groceries in his hand.
On route out of your scene.
So you let him walk off into the sunset.
So you let him walk off into the sunset.
So you let him walk off into the sunset.
Mise en scène.
So you let him walk off into the sunset.
So you let him walk off into the sunset.
So you let him walk off into the sunset.
Mise en scène
