Track Name: Groceries
Shaking little shoulder blades--
Press them up against the bricks.
These are ambush roofs
And you, well, you're a kid.

You get pelted by rain,
Your soaking wet hair
Starts to curl, while your grocery bag tears.

You just stare off at the mess you've made.
Your dented little pantry and a long walk home
To a half awake family.

You'll get pelted by rain,
Your soaking wet hair,
Starts to curl and you say you don't care.

You say you don't care.
Track Name: Made It Home
So you made it home.
You practically fell through the front door
Then ricocheted your way upstairs
Just to fumble with your keys.

But you used to be so sweet.
Now you're passing out on me.

Let's go home.
I can't take St. Mark's any more.
We'll ricochet the way uptown.
I'll put you to bed and stay on the couch.

Oh you used to be so sweet.
Now you're passing out on me.
Track Name: Cool-Legged
Cool-legged girls: with their toes in the lake,
Sunburned since yesterday,
And sneaking something in water bottles.

Just let me know when you make it.
You can go swimming when you're here.
And I'll wrap you up in colors, my dear.

But I'll wait in the water.
You know I'll tire out so soon
So when I spot you on the shore,
I'll come collapse right next to you.

Cool legged girls: sweat stains on the smalls of their backs,
Tiptoeing over broken glass,
And emptying water bottles.

So let me know whenever you make it home
Cause I'll still wish you were here--
Wrapped up in colors, my dear.

But I'll wait in the water.
You know I'll tire out so soon
So when I spot you on the shore,
I'll come collapse right next to you.
