Track Name: Hair of the Dog
Hair of the dog, yeah.
I dip my head back into the well, just to get the bottom clean. Black suds in my liver raging, yeah.
My blood is saturated, my heart contaminated. Oh my God. Hair of the dog.

Black suds in my liver raging. And I'm blacking out yeah, right now.
Suicide, I swear I almost died.
Hair of the dog.

I pull my hair back when it starts. When I start to get obscene. Black spots in my liver raging, yeah.
My heart is saturated, my mind contaminated. Cure the dog with the hair of the dog.

Black spots in my liver raging. And I'm blacking out yeah, right now.
Suicide, I swear I almost died.
Cure the dog.

Blackout, cure the dog with the hair of the dog.

Hair of the dog.
Track Name: It Comes With the Territory
i didn’t mean to say it scares me
but in fact it really does
i kind of think i sort of minded
being covered in your blood

spill it like a secret
enjoy your youth
maturity dies in liquid
someday i will too

i’m brave
i can do anything
i’m afraid
and i’m stained
Track Name: Zoot Suit Riot
who's that whispering in the trees?
it's two sailors and they're on leave
pipes and chains and swingin' hands
who's your daddy? yes I am

fat cat came to play
now you can't run fast enough
you'd best stay away
when the pushers come to shove

zoot suit riot

throw back a bottle of beer

zoot suit riot

pull a comb through your coal black hair

zoot suit riot

throw back a bottle of beer
zoot suit riot


pull a comb through your coal black hair

a whipped up jitterbugging brown eyed man
stray cat fronting up an eight-piece band
cut me Sammy and you'll understand
in my veins hot music ran

you got me in a sway
I want to swing you dove
now you sailors know
where your women come for love

Zoot suit riot

throw back a bottle of beer
zoot suit riot

pull a comb through your coal black hair

you're in a zoot suit riot

you got me in a sway
I want to swing you dove
Now you sailors know
Where your bitches come to fuck

zoot suit riot

throw back a bottle of beer
zoot suit riot

pull a comb through your coal black hair

zoot suit riot

throw back a bottle of beer
zoot suit riot

pull a comb through your coal black hair

you're in a zoot suit riot
Track Name: American Psycho
i’ve got six bucks till sunday and no food at all
well that’s alright i’d rather spend it all on alcohol
a slit on my wrist and a blue tourniquet and a shot to the nearest bar
in an hour or two i hope i don’t know you or anyone at all

this suitcase is hard to pack

three bucks till monday and a hole in the wall
that’s quite alright i drank my weight and cracked my fucking jaw
the blood and the mane all became the same and i’m pretty sure i broke my arm
in a hour or two i hope i don’t know you or anyone at all

in the end you’ll hear me out now

six bucks till sunday and no food at all
well that’s alright i’d rather spend it all on alcohol
because the blood and the mane all became the same and i know i just broke my arm
in an hour or two i hope i don’t know you or anyone at all

the boys will be alright as long as i keep on working hard
but my mom says i drink too much and it’s tearing my family apart
a slit on my wrist and a blue tourniquet and a shot to the nearest bar
i’m sorry my sons your pap is a bum and i hate him with all of my heart

in the end you’ll hear me out now
Track Name: Forward Motion
Lady, lately I've been grinding my teeth in my sleep.
Lately I've been lusting for a taste of your drug.
The taste could bring me to my doom.
Creatures crawl out of cocoons.
Lately I've been lusting for a taste of your blood.

Lady, recently I've been speaking in my sleep.
Lately I've been lusting for a taste of your tongue.
The taste could bring me to my doom.
Creatures crawl out of cocoons.
Lately I've been lusting for a taste of your blood.

Slow down lady.
Slow your roll.
Slow down lady.

Like cinematography, running through the frames I'm reminded of what I say and what I've done.
Oh yeah, play it back like a sound wave.
As your voice resonates, I'm reminded of what I say and what I've done.
Oh yeah, forward motion.

Slow down lady.
Slow your roll.
Slow down lady.
Track Name: Jump, Jive & Wail
baby, baby it looks like it's gonna hail
you better come inside
let me teach you how to jive and wail

you gotta jump, jive, and then you wail
you gotta jump, jive, and then you wail away

papa's in the icebox lookin' for a can of ale
mama's in the backyard
learning how to jive an' wail

you gotta jump, jive, and then you wail
you gotta jump, jive, and then you wail away

a woman is a woman and a man ain't nothing but a man
one good thing about him
he knows how to jive an' wail

Jack and Jill went up the hill to get a pail
you best sit on my dick, let me teach you how to jive and wail


you gotta jump, jive, and then you wail
you gotta jump, jive, and then you wail away
