Track Name: Tigerbite
My teeth are too sharp for your meat baby
I’m watching you while you’re asleep baby
My teeth are too sharp for your meat baby
I’ll refund you without a receipt baby
I’m lighting the drapes on fire
I’m lighting the drapes on fire
I’m lighting the drapes on fire

You’re naked and wearing makeup
You’re wasting away all my time
I think you should get me some water
It looks like were gonna have a fire
I’m lighting the drapes on fire
I’m lighting the drapes on fire
I’m lighting the drapes on fire

I’m lighting the drapes on fire
There’s a tiger right outside the door and he looks pretty sore
I’m lighting the drapes on fire
There’s a tiger right outside the door and he looks pretty sore

Do do do do wadaladala

My teeth are too sharp for your meat baby
I’ll refund you without a receipt baby
My teeth is too sharp for your meat baby
I’m watching you while you’re asleep baby
I’m lighting the drapes on fire
He’s lighting the drapes on fire
I’m lighting the drapes on fire

You’re naked and wearing makeup
You got something up your behind
I think you should get me a soda
Cause it’s time to have a fire
I’m lighting the drapes on fire
I’m lighting the drapes on fire
I’m lighting the drapes on fire


I’m lighting the drapes on fire
There’s a tiger right outside the door and he looks pretty sore
I’m lighting the drapes on fire,
There’s a tiger right outside the door and you know what it’s for?

Do do do do wadaladala
Track Name: Sattva Bloodisattva
I used to know a guy with short hair
One day he tried to show me how to meditate
He sat across from me with a blank stare
But every time I stretched my neck he’d salivate
I knew just what he stared at
I said, “Hey buddy do you mind?” He said, “If you insist”
Then he swung out his golden prayer mat
And in a second he had turned into a mist
He was a Buddhist, but he was a vampire

That brother was a point of light and
He always said that he could never hurt a fly
I saw him eating mosquito
He said he thought it was a Dorito but I know that’s a lie
He used to sleep down in my basement
And always reading the Tibetan Book of Death
He knew the Chinese art of placement
And there was always something foul on his breath
He was a Buddhist, but he was a vampire

He took my sister to the disco
Them flashing lights can have a very strange effect
She didn’t live to tell the tale though
They found her sitting in the lotus with a hole her neck
He was a Buddhist, but he was a vampire
And he played the guitar

In case you’re wondering where to find him
He’s probably in a golden casket facing south
He’s got a brightly colored wardrobe
And if you’re wondering, that ain’t catsup on his mouth
He’s what you’d call a bloodisattva
Take it from me you’d better leave that boy alone
He’ll hypnotize you with a mantra
And heaven help you if you invite him into your home
He is a Buddhist, but he is a vampire

Track Name: Viper's Bugloss
You left home with the water running running
In the bathroom, there’s no doubt about it
You could smell the carpet burning burning
Cause the television’s on fire
You left Judas parked inside your driveway
Reading Roman magazines
There’s a pumpkin on your doorway doorway
But it isn’t Halloween

There’s a book with its pages open open
To a picture of a healthy diet
And the lock on your back door is broken
And the babysitter’s a liar
You left Judas parked inside your driveway
In a Roman limousine
Someone’s painted numbers on your walkway
But you don’t know what they mean

There’s a stranger with the babysitter
Doing voodoo on your lawn
At the children’s birthday party party
Tell the kids you won’t be long
Track Name: Pelted
What did you get and why did it take so long?
I’ve been sitting by the kitchen window biting all my nails off
So does Regina think it’s time to leave Mike alone
And join in the after-dinner fun?

The guests are getting very anxious
And they’re very very impatient
So you’d better never run away dear
Because they’re very very impatient

I’ve been biting all of my nails off
And did you ever think of anything like biting all your nails off?
And did you really think that I could please everyone?
You simply aren’t helping me at all

The guests are getting very anxious
And they’re very very impatient
So you’d better never run away dear
Because they’re very very impatient

Don’t you know you aren’t any help at all?
Just tell me what it is you got and tell me why it had to take so long
And I wonder how much longer Margarita’s gonna carry on
I’m going to the bathroom

The guests are getting very anxious
And they’re very very impatient
So you’d better never run away dear
Because they’re very very impatient
The guests are getting very anxious
And they’re very very impatient
So you’d better never run away dear
Because they’re very very impatient
They’re all so very very impatient
They’re all so very very impatient
They’re all so very very impatient
They’re all so very very impatient
Track Name: How Do You Like That Dame?
How do you like that dame?
How do you like that dame?
How do you like that dame, she’s gay…
She’s gay
If you take your dames gay
She’s as gay as a rake
If you ask for a date
She’ll say “hey that’s OK”
Cause a dame can be gay
Just like any piece of steak
And it ain’t worth the wait
To make paste
Paste

How do you take your eggs?
How do you take your eggs?
Before you put them on your plate
You’d better make them straight
If you take your eggs straight
It won’t be a mistake
Cause an egg can taste great
When it’s straight when it’s straight
I once had an egg when I was in jail
And it tasted great
Play it safe
I’ve always been a leg man
Track Name: Haunted Nighttime History Class
She looks at me with patient eyes
And tells me lies, and tells me tales
She’s waiting for the sun to rise
With patient eyes and painted fingernails
And she never fails

She’s done it with a dog, oh oh
We never really talk, oh oh
But I know I love her so

I seem to find the perfect time
It’s the perfect crime, we’re the perfect pair
She never seems to notice I adore her lines
She never seems to care
I smell her in my hair

She’s done it with a dog, oh oh
We’re kissing on the floor, oh oh
And I know I have to go

She looks at me with patient eyes
And tells me lies, and tells me tales
She’s waiting for the sun to rise
With patient eyes and painted fingernails
And she never fails
She never fails
She never fails
Track Name: Anny In a Jungle Town
She wore 2 ankle bracelets of harpy’s teeth
There were 4 molars and 6 incisors on each
She drew 8 compass points where our teacups meet
And took 10 steps over to where I sleep
She said how do you live here at all?
She said wow the sky is so small

There’s a string of dead fingers around my neck
In this jungle town that’s how you get respect
In a tangle of grass and mosquito nets
She said love in the jungle is such a mess
She said how do you live here at all?
I said now put your hands on the ground
She said how do you go to the bathroom here?
I said now I only go once a year

I’ve got no more curtains or tablecloths
Cause I traded them all on this trip across the moss
I don’t eat anything that I can’t wipe off
She said Anny that sounds like a nasty cough
She said how do you live here at all?
She said all you do is stare at the wall
She said how
She said how
Track Name: Greetings From Nasca Van Boren
I went to the doctor, he said I was fine
He showed me an X-ray, but it wasn’t mine
It looked like a monkey with a xylophone
And hundreds of starfish all over his bones

I knocked on your door but you weren’t at home
My shirt’s on your floor and my girlfriend’s in Rome
I met an old lady who sat very still
She said I look just like her dead husband Bill

I looked in the mirror but nothing was there
So I took it down and put up my stuffed bear
My grandfather shot him when he was fifteen
And now that I’ve got him I brush all his teeth

I dreamt I was swimming, got bit by a shark
He tore off my feet and he ripped them apart
Then I woke up screaming and holding my legs
But I was just dreaming, I guess that’s okay
Track Name: Rumble Lion
The lion’s den is a great old place to be

Don’t park me in a parking lot
I know what happens there after dark
In a lion’s den I can be myself
But a parking lot makes my ice cream melt
They could jack you up and take your shoes
And you wouldn’t laugh if that happened to you

Don’t leave me on a darkly lit street
I don’t want semen on my seat
And the bumper cars have sixteen wheels
And you’ve no idea how bad that feels
And it’s so embarrassing, don’t pretend
You’re a pretty girl but you’re not my friend

Don’t leave your oven mitts on the stove
It’s true I come from a broken home
And it’s so important to pay your debts
But you spend it all on cigarettes
It’s amazing how long I can hold my breath
With a plastic bag around my head
And the scientific appeal of this
Is a passing promise upon your lips
And the bayonets have all gone and been
And the cyanide is just kicking in
Track Name: Melissa, Withdrawn
I told all the neighbors you were moving in
I bought fresh coffee and your favorite jams
When the telegraph came, I nearly went round the bend
It said
That you don’t love me anymore
You shot me like a cannonball
You’ve gone abroad to work with the poor
And you’re not moving in

I’d invested in the restraints for your bed
And the wallpaper for the parlor like you said
And I’d hidden all the bibles, I know you don’t like them
And then
I made your favorite lemon cake
Yes, your favorite lemon cake
In heart-shaped oven baking forms
I hate the way it tastes

The turtle you bought for me this Christmas past
Only stares at me from behind the rounded glass
I don’t know what to feed it and I’ve wished it dead
And
I don’t know what its name is
No I can’t recall the turtle’s name
You told me once when we made love
But I can’t remember it
