Track Name: Sexy
I decided to be sexy in my mind
When I think about my body I don't mind
And when people want to touch me I know why
And when I look in the mirror I don't cry

I decided I'm a model in my mind
Everybody wants a piece of my behind
And when people want to be me I know why
And when I look in the mirror I don't cry

I decided to be sexy, sexy
And when I look in the mirror I don't even cry

I decided that I'm happy in my mind
Doesn't bother me when people are unkind
And when those folks talk shit about me I know why
And when I look in the mirror I don't cry

I decided to be happy, happy
And when I look in the mirror I don't even cry
Track Name: Fox
Why love when you can hate
Why love when you can hate
Why try when you have fate to do
The future automatically
Because because

Foxes
Roses

Why kiss when you can kick
Why try when you could fit a frown
Or show when you could hide yourself
Because because

Foxes
Roses
Track Name: Ocean
Let's go to the ocean
I can see a mist
The plankton will be glowing blue
The oysters will be pissed
We'll run along the sandbar with them
Spitting at our toes
The waves will lap our ankles
And soggy all our clothes
Let's bring a tub of pesto
And eat it on the sand
And play a little footsie
And I will hold your hand
Yes I will hold your hand
Track Name: Sicky
When I stay home
Sick with a cold
I drink soup like my
Mother told me to
And even though I'm
Older now
I put a record on
And lie
Pretending I
Am in the sky
And that my bed is
Like a cloud
And when I play pretend
I'm louder than I ought to be
'Cause now I'm all grown up, you see
And also have a cold
Track Name: Go
Baby I've got to be somewhere at
Seven o'clock but you don't care
What's doing
I couldn't say how many times you've
Broken the screen door hit the wind chimes
Darling
I've got to go

We'll stay put in bed on Saturday and
Do naughty things for hours 'til we get
Tired
So tired
But Monday I just can't stay will you please
Put something on you want me to get
Fired
So fired
I've got to go

Well nobody's trying to blame you babe and
I know you get excited in the morning
The morning
Sun's up at five o'clock and I make
Coffee and you fry eggs damn we're so
Boring
So boring
I've got to go
Track Name: Spring
Spring reminds me of when I was sixteen
And I didn't worry about anything
And I had these friends we'd go to the park
And swing in the day and catch frogs after dark
And buds start to grow on the trees by the street
And I start to go everywhere in bare feet
And the bricks on the house will get cracked by the vine
But how can I worry when everything's fine
Fine

So sit with me here on a bench by the sea
And tell me about what you like about me
And I'll talk about what I like about you
And we'll both brag about things the other can do
Now I'm scared to die because it's clear to me
There's no point to anything that I can see
But spring has a point that I just can't define
Besides lying outside I know everything's fine
Fine
Track Name: Wasted
I stayed home and watched TV
Every day for the last six months
Eating chips and sweet iced tea
Every day for the last six months
Writing songs I'd never play
Every day for the last six months
Thinking things I'd never say
Every day for the last six months

Wasted all the time
Wasting everybody's time

Sure I thought about you much
Every day for the last six months
Getting head and fans and such
Every day for the last six months
Sure I feel much better now
Every day for the last six months
If you feel good show me how
Every day for the last six months

Wasted all the time
Wasting everybody's time

***

We were up in that pavilion
When the rain came
Raging down sweeping under

Dusting toes and soaking benches
Filling swing seats
Pooling at the bottom of the slide

We'd left hot dogs chips and Pepsi
In a bag by the pond
