Catherine Antrim's Kid

"Two, three, and."

Brush all the dust of Kansas
Off of my special shoes
When the coach lets us out at the corner store
Mom was coughing like an old man, shivering like a cold man

And I found some trouble to get into
The admiration was mutual
Split my winnings with mom 55/45
But it didn't keep her alive

I got lost out there in New Mexico
Nothing to lose, nowhere to go
I got lost when my lucky stars crossed

That night I dreamt about Fort Stanton
Though I didn't know to call it that yet
And the night wrapped me up in its long dark embrace
I had that same expression on as that one picture of my face

Which was all anyone would ever know about me
After my visitors got done with me
I lay down singing on the porch, blood streaming from my mouth
Sounded kind of like Paul Westerberg but to tell you the truth

I got lost out there in New Mexico
Nothing to lose, nowhere to go
I got lost when my lucky stars crossed

Rotten Stinking Mouthpiece

"One, two, three, and."

Lob some spit at the window
Watch it run down the pane
It's only the guilty who concern themselves
With clearing their names

You bring tidings of hope, false tidings
When you come here
There's two friends who did me wrong that you're protecting
It's so clear

When you speak, it's those two who speak through you
Who'll speak for me?
The burning and the electricity

Sun goes down, San Francisco Friends are hard to find
Chew them up just as quick as I can find them
Try to clear my mind

Remember hours at the table
Gauze-white light, easing through
If there's one thing that I'm not going to do tonight
It's die for you

'Cause when you speak, it's those two who speak through you
Who'll speak for me?
The burning and the electricity
