Track Name: My Bed
My Bed.
copyright all lyrics Gretchen Seichrist


come on and in be in the show
you’re the one for the job

remember your rock and roll reputation turned gold cross?
and how i wore it off?

do what feels right - do what feels good - but Shawna is just a kid
(with a wig)
did you hear me... what i said?
it’s only a wig - and you’re lost

you can’t hunt me down
without losing your mind
fire in the closet,can’t you see?
stay and play razor blades down your arm

Elvis Presley, is a blond
hanging- on hanging on

can you hear the voices crack?
they suffered with life all so sweet
leave my roses in the absences
and green green come with me

Your hall is all electric
your thoughts they start to feel
what stops you from correcting the last tenants bad deal
you have the attention of the room

the tender - hearted just start gasping
when they play that anthem to soon
in every anthem sung in my bed..
what i said- it’s only a wig

do what feels right - do what feels good, but Shawna is just a kid
(with a wig)
did you hear me what i said? it’s only a wig and you’re tossed
Track Name: Night Shade
pretty good red luck
the snake, the pinch
Porter comes in at 10
jokes, smokes, reads the notes

Mitch he showed his new shoes
put 'em up in the air
smiled gold tooth
Miss Shirley says you guys need to stop....

laughs and walks off down the hall
she goes to dispense
he waits and slips

the key chain off the wall
the key chain off the wall

come looking for the crook
they outnumber the beds
he’s all the way to Natchez
i’m just a walking cradle
i’m just a talking book
sweet memories baby hair- naive
bikinis dreams to animals and you know...

you can’t wipe it off
You can’t wipe it off

coachers and rowers
tangled in trees
i can see through forests
and bunch of cheats collate

never mind the run off
she’s the whole world
in your hands

put that eye in the mirror
i’ll buy your freedom
now pretty good red luck
figure eight and play and
pretty good red luck and...

Annie Ruth kept you fed
Annie Ruth kept you fed
Track Name: The Heartfelt News
THE HEARTFELT NEWS

Lately it felt like he kept meeting the same person…
but who to tell that tale to? it’s just too much to swallow…

He hates music. ……
All those people can't be lying -of course you see! how easily the numbers are changed!

don't you ever say a mumblin’ word
i know your a dinosaur, then you’re a bird?
you never give the details when i need them-to be saved
give me the facts man! don’t make me beg!
make it shimmer, make it shake, make it splinter
nobody in sales likes me anyway.... way, hey

Milly man slurp, watched her husband in church
such a twister - mistress if she’ll shut up and work!
he says as he jogs it white, he loves you guys
bore me death by drop by drop wait for it suicide
bug size schemes of men with wives you want to
hide the common ancestor and they zipped out of sight!

give me the facts man - spew and spit come on and give!
at 80 mph on that kings highway
its a hard to play it just exact…..
her blouse is barely holding and she’s jelly fish
down that penalty fake box, confess
to look in her eyes she wants to be paid back!
and that’s impossibility!
lick your fist and hurt her where she lives
just past the kings highway

cover your tracks in the heartfelt news…
find a poor sob story rip it from his shoes
call a rose to go in slippers and perfume
light her self on fire- fall down her stairs
too drunk to use the phone or care
you left the matches, they left the gaping wound
they call it necessary price …no it wasn’t you! no it wasn't you!
back in college we had some days of beans and rice!

cover your tracks in the heartfelt news
find a poor sob story rip it from his stupid - undeserving shoes
write it up! put it out! etc....

give me the facts man! grab me by the arm!
collect all those jacks and throw them across the bar!
give me the facts man - spew and spit come on and give!
hit 'em where they live

lately it felt like she kept meeting the same person
he hates music……
Track Name: (L. I. T. S) Lost In The Shuffle
L- I -T-S (LOST IN THE SHUFFLE)

neighbor moved in and brought me down to size
thought maybe we had something in common
she was a marble and i guess he just snapped....

great sunrise
holy eyes
disappointed on my side

sits in her chair forty years
get your feet off my new table —————where is that damn remote?
is that guilt that petrified?

who will teach him how to drive?
be mother and father - money maker?
be hopeful when all the therapists whine?
keep him away from porn sites?
make him believe what he can’t find?

he was L.I.T.S
lost in the shuffle
he came to love but was sent away
he came to get back and partly confess

he was lost in the shuffle
he must be from a mess
a loneliness and my lack of success
he was lost in the shuffle

he gets new wife and they get new kids
plus the ones she had
you're part shore man and you're part myth
being caught and look up
he was sneaking out of the driveway

when you were getting up, i can just see
your little jumping face, in the window up above
trying to please someone trying to please someone

Great sunrise
holy eyes
disappointed on my side

he was L.I.T.S

lost in the shuffle
he came to claim but was sent away
he came to attack and partly confess

he was lost in the shuffle
he must be from a mess
a loneliness and my lack of success
he was lost in the shuffle

Here she is holding the baby
here she is in Manhattan
Here on the the beach in a robe
Here she goes with Eric Clapton
Nobody is going to get any better than they are right now
It would take the strength of at least one bone
We’re doing our best to be known
so…
you have to replace a feeling with a thing
if you’re ….

lost in the shuffle….
Track Name: Hot Feet
Hot Feet - the lonesome kid

He was a runaway years ago- everybody coming for me
mom reading in her chair by the phone
i was in another state with bare feet
i never got caught - i’m on my own

i’m on my own - on my own— on my own

back then all the maids in macon
rode the buses city wide
they wore uniforms of dusty blue
some with skin of deep brown velvet

how come nobody falls to their knees in worship?
it’s so odd people pass right by the gods—— that deserve it

this morning i went outside before the sunrise
the snow was melting i was thinking about giving you everything
it must have been something about the faint sound of water
escaping it’s stationary form

How come nobody -in this city cries at your doorstep?
and lays their body down and makes up ———— their mind

i know it must be hidden somewhere in the deep south
the way i want to kiss you by the side of the house
the smell of a baseball glove in her mind and when it’s time she arches like a bridge-the birds are singing- when she opens her mouth and then she carries the laundry out..its blowing and twisting around the line -

around the line around the line around the line

this has all happened it’s all true
without a doubt is the deed to the span of the land- it’s all mine
and oh yeah i tied my shoes together and threw them up on the telephone wire
i couldn’t wear them my feet were on fire

how come nobody falls to their knees in worship?
it’s so odd people pass right by the gods—— that ....

THE LONESOME KID


I SAW THE LONESOME KID
OUT IN THE SUBURBS
OUT OF WATER
I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT kind he was
AND I WAS HURTING IN A DULL SLOW WAY

who is wrong to follow ? - they say
let them go- then they tend to stay
my missile efforts to the hollow could not penetrate...
who could not be swayed ?

Where to go when I sleepwalk? my eyes all furry.
I had a rushing feeling like the song is about to pop
my body shows me what to do and my mouth just tastes like chalk
i just end up at the intersection and look up

looking like i did
looking like the lonesome kid ……


you ask about my family
that must have been done- before me
I fell from the deity -
I’m beside her - in the car, (space)……
I sit in the chair where the arms have been ripped
I can set my ashtray there -


THERE MIGHT BE SOME GOODNESS
JUST STANDING OPEN ON THE STREET
WITH ARMS swinging UP IN THE AIR ……..
IT’S NOT EVEN POSSIBLE- TO SAY ANYTHING DEFINITE-
I COULD EVEN GIVE MY ORGANS AWAy………….

looking like i did
looking like the lonesome kid
the lonesome kid the lonesome kid -
slow exit part
THE LONESOME KID
I WILL NOT BOTHER
Out in the suburbs
Out of water


HE SEEMED TO HAVE IT RIGHT
He PUT MY HEART ON A TSHIRT
I WON’T EVEN READ IT- not me
Track Name: Baby Me
BABY ME - the lonesome kid

the time line starts right here
my sexual souvenir
the streets are all closed
and know i love to be alone

dreaming of skin and the bones exposed
and how to force you in
i used all my charms
and set off false alarms

just to climb the stairs
just to be relieved
i gave my best shit to those idiots
write one long song
and know i love to be alone

so baby me
come on and baby me
it’s my time to crawl
so baby me

i got colors on the wall
everything put up will fall
and make a thing

packages that fly through aggravated skies
foretold love letter
if only you were better
that never made it through the night
to my second floor
and know i love to be alone

can’t do the climb

so baby me
so baby me
come on and baby me
it’s my time to crawl
so baby me

i used all my charms
and set off false alarms
just to climb the stairs
just to be relieved
and know we love to be alone

Track Name: Hastings
Hastings - the lonesome kid

the window only opens so far in the room of the american inn
you blew your smoke ring right up against - the- screen
you’re paying the 200 fine if we get caught i’m threatening ….
you won’t help

you’re 6 foot 4inches tall - this you told me in the car
upon remembering this i feel an aching loneliness
that i suspect is taking over me like - a - plague


throughout the night your leg shook and i could feel your bronchitis filled chest
fears swirled around inside my head but the blue light and white sheets
are too drained to speak it and that painting above you in - mountains - of relief
but there's no relief ….
ever

i don’t know whose going to stop me in these tracks
i had moments of utter panic when we crossed the Minnesota river
on the drive——— back

i feel like and ashtray of plastic and black
maybe you’ll carry me across the room to another time and then i’ll know
I’m stuffing words you dropped in my cigarette pack when i get home -
they’ll - be - a - net

I’m always trying so hard you know i’ve heard it all said before
now I’m in the mirror and i’m brushing my hair the moment before i open the door and come to you - i’m a traitor of futures for minutes and seconds

you’re stretched out on the hotel bed
the news is on and the stories horrify and through it all we turn each other on and the your fingertips come up through my hair
i was born with magical powers and
now - they’re - gone
