THWART HUSTLE

tweaker Will said he got 45
if you can gets some shit you can keep a dime
Jay spoke up said he got the connect

and he decided it was time to get on the line
ahhh...and he was gone

permeates the mind increasingly

plastic and water
like piles of gold and mercury
ahhh

Track Name: Plastic Plunder
PLASTIC PLUNDER

the pusher puller the midnight stroller
rocking the sideways on the corner
when they holler out of nowhere
take it back and turn it over
before the smacks gets up in clover
turn it back and take it over

pretty flies are made of butter
slip and slide a dime for a quarter
buys a mime and tin can soldier
set beside a pretty chessboard
made of limes and tiny bop folklore
takes it back and turns it over

pull a postcard from a folder
slap it backwards on the shoulder
of invisible mohair sofa
sitting on stacks of plastic plunder
Track Name: Another Night On The Town
ANOTHER NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN

another night out on the town
another night standing around
we’re just killing time
we don't really mind

hey listen what's that sound
the roof top is falling down
take a chance and step inside
never know what your gonna find
we don't mind
we're killing time
me and my clementine

last call for alcohol
we don't need to drink at all
we don't really mind
we're just killing time

we don't mind mind
we're killing time
me and my clementine
Track Name: Stereo
STEREO

he was feeling alone
he had gotten sick and tired of the shopping mall
he was looking for something
he finally got his something in the stereo
he said stereo
turn me back up when I'm feeling low
he said stereo
you got it going on don't you fail me now
stereo... stereo

she was a rambler
she was rambling out on the road
she was searching for shelter
you know she found her shelter in the stereo
she said stereo... stereo

she said stereo
turn me back up when I'm feeling low
she said stereo
you got it going on don't you fail me now
stereo... stereo

the met up with each other
on the sidewalk after the show
they went to the apartment
and put themselves a record on the stereo
stereo stereo
said stereo
turn me back up when I'm feeling low
said stereo stereo
you got it going on don't you fail me now
stereo... stereo

Track Name: Ghetto Bird
GHETTO BIRD

running down an alley hopping over a fence
sliding in time just under a freeway overpass
I was running from the law
I was running from the law

ground unit is creeping up on me just down the street
ghetto bird is in the asky and flying over me
I was running from the law
I was running from the law

I climb up and I take off
down the street to the apartment
I was running from the law
I was running from the law
Track Name: Crazy Daisy
CRAZY DAISY

here she comes
down the street
for everybody to see
dirty girl
staying clean
she always hip to the scene
here she comes consciously
gets it done
does nothing
all the while
you can see
she just wants to be friendly
yeah she's crazy daisy

there she goes
you can see
the nightmare turn to a dream
making good looking mean
she doesn't need anything
yeah she's crazy daisy
Track Name: What Is
WHAT IS

a nameless face
a wasted space
out on the chase
in the rodent race
and out of place
forgotten case
it's all the rage
mmm...anyway

soothingly strange
anyway
yeah it's strange
soothingly strange

a bitter taste
a constant face
a turning page
chemical cage
an addicts maze
it's all the rage
anyway
co-dependants amendments... made

soothingly strange
anyway
yeah it's strange
soothingly strange

soothingly strange
anyway
yeah it's strange
soothingly strange
soothingly strange
anyway
yeah it's strange
soothingly strange
Track Name: In Angel Dust
IN ANGEL DUST

from first to last
and last to first
through the pains of hunger
and the sufferings of thirst
and medicated recreations
judiciary complications
plant the seed of alteration
firmly in the dirt

all was left in angel dust

from birth to death
and death and to birth
without a single kind of caller on the social shirt
the chain was broken
the box was opened
without a warning
a lifted curse

all was left in angel dust
all was left... in angel dust

worked out kaleidoscopic anitonic bursts
swam the anhydonic pond
tarred and feathered
bailed to one
with leaps and bounds
around the town of concrete mounds and found what it was worth

all was left in angel dust
all was left... in angel dust...ahhh...ahhh
Track Name: He Not Right
HE NOT RIGHT

he not right
he not not there
he don't mind
he... don't... care

you know he not right
you know he not here
you know don't mind
you know he don't really care

you know he not right
you know he not here
you know don't mind
you know he don't really care

you know he not right
you know he not here
you know don't mind
you know he don't really care

he not right
he not not there
he don't mind
he... don't... care

you know he not right
Track Name: Oh What A Shame
OH WHAT A SHAME
he wonders what she thinks
when she gets to him that way
she wonders what he thinks
when he goes out to play
they dream of each other
when they are away
when the get together
somehow...someway...nothings changed

oh what a shame
the nightmare found its vein
oh what a shame the nightmare
has made its claim
what a shame

she believes in nothing
he believes his brain
its hard to find time to think
about something like an empty place
at the bottom of the heart where the demons like to stay
and pull it all apart
but its easier
to run...run away

oh what a shame
the nightmare found its vein
oh what a shame the nightmare
has .made its claim
what a shame
what a shame
what a shame

they found they ought to speak
but lost the words to say
the secrets that they keep
the truth they gave away
they made the time to bleed
it was an honest pain
the pleasures they would reap
it was all theirs to take

oh what a shame
the nightmare found its vein
oh what a shame the nightmare
made its claim

oh what a shame
the nightmare found its vein
oh what a shame the nightmare
has claim
what a shame what a shame
Track Name: Lady Of Alchemy
LADY OF ALCHEMY

lady of alchemy
makes me feel so fine
lady of alchemy
see how she shines
oh my

while I look into her eyes
she's removing the disguise
she's showing me to me
lets me see what I want to see
and if I want to lie
there is no need to try
because everything
is just how it should be always

lady of alchemy
makes me feel so fine
lady of alchemy
see how she shines
oh my

when she touches my mind
she feels between the lines
finds just what I need
extracting it for me
she brings it all to light
lets me realize
there is so much to find
in nothing when your trying

lady of alchemy
makes me feel so fine
lady of alchemy
see how she shines
oh my

lady of alchemy
makes me feel so fine
lady of alchemy
see how she shines
oh my

lady of alchemy
makes me feel so fine
lady of alchemy
see how she shines
oh my

Track Name: Faire Thee Well Carousel
FAIR THEE WELL CAROUSEL

locks of hair in the stairwell
