Track Name: None More Than You
I was the whore
he didn’t pay for
I(’d)(‘ve) been so wronged
I never saw you coming
I‘ve never loved
anyone
as much as
I love you
none more than you
none more than you
none more than you
none more than you

I didn’t believe in love
but I believe in you

none more than you
Track Name: RINGSIDE
I gotta ringside seat
I watch you fuck it up
is my forgiveness weak
and are you man enough?

but I don't wanna lose you this time
you know I never lied
be my witness

I was there in Bolinas
there in Pompeii
I held your hand in Lexington
I'm always there to save the
(the mother fuckin')
day

we keep meeting like this
this time
I won't walk away

but I don't wanna lose you this time
you know I never lied
be my witness

Go ahead, ignore her
But nobody puts Baby in the corner

I gotta ringside seat
I watch us fuck it up
and in each life we meet
you're the only one I love

you're the only one

Be my witness

Don't make me take your car keys
you and I can work this out
don't forget that I'm your baby

Don't leave me behind
I'm on your side
You know I never lied

Don't forget that I'm your Baby
Don't forget that I'm your Baby

(I love you)
Track Name: No Love, No Vacancy
tyger tyger stripe
armor armor shine
ward off any who dare to touch
I never fucked anybody that I loved
and I’m not gonna start now
no love no love, no vacancy
no love no love, no vacancy
no man’s ever been inside
no man’s ever been good enough
that doesn’t mean it’s not a fuck
I never fucked anybody that I loved
and I’m not gonna start now
no love no love, no vacancy
no love no love, no vacancy
scarlet letter primed
scarlet letter burning bright
with a capital “I”
no touch, no love
no fuck, no love
(no hope, no harm)
I never fucked anybody that I loved
and I’m not gonna start now
no love no love, no vacancy
no love no love, no vacancy
Track Name: Assisi @ 1276
if you don't move
it only hurts a bit
somewhere between
hubris and innocence
it's kind of a shame
we even have to lie

dove in the hand
wolf at your feet
to tremble and cy
Bleed until blind

on the fringes of terror, hope shines
on the fringes of terror, hope shines

as Oakland remains on fire
and Assisi will bleed
like a dancer with bruised knees

my love for you keeps me alive
my love for you keeps me alive

on the fringes of terror, hope shines
on the fringes of terror, hope shines

too fragile to beat
for fear it will break
where are all the lionhearted?

hawks and the sparrows
and the lily of the valley

as Oakland remains on fire
and Assisi will bleed
like a dancer with bruised knees

Grandpa: “Hello, mom! Well, mom, here I am in Chicago having a wonderful time with Roy. Last night Roy went down to my camp to get me, and I went to his. To our surprise, we didn’t find each other! I stayed around town, the eve’ning, and uh, and it was so nice ‘n’ warm, me ‘n’ my other frr-fellow soldiers we walked around town and took in a couple-a movies. Then in the morning I went to church as usual, and then we went to service club. There...from there I took a taxi down to all the way down to Roy’s place. Found him around there running around trying to get in touch with me. Well, it looks like his telephone service is pretty good. Phone me up, and I go walk in--Pretty good! [ laughs]. Then, uh, came back down here to the service club had some breakfast, and uh, it was swell, too. Everybody down here is treat us swell. Wish we’d stay down here longer. But I don’t know how long we’ll stay here, but I.., yeah, I hope we stay here longer! And, uh, well, some of the soldiers here, my friends, are playing ping pong, I went up to the music room and listened to some beautiful classical music. Wish Rosie was here, she could hear a lot of this music.”
