Track Name: Blonde
and now it comes on
with the clap of my hands
when i say you aren't like i am
it comes on so soft
like the end of the day
when i see it all in such strange shapes
and now it comes on
like the hair on my face
when i talk to my best friend i put it away
you dye your hair blonde
threaten to leave the state
but you're sleepin' on the floor anyway

And when you see it cryin'
out on toledo lake
who was that older naked boyfriend
who scared us all away
and now you need it in your hair
when you're buried in the sand
and we don't go anywhere, we just live on my land
you can take it anywhere

not just to take all that i want
not just to say the same
not just to see the room go off
not just to be a slave
not just to take my clothes off
in the middle of the day
not just to dye your hair blonde
but you do it anyway
not just to see it all gone bad
i never thought of it that way
not just to dye your hair black
but you do it anyway
Track Name: Scala Santa
i got something real nice for the king
so i ain't ever scared i'm gonna die
i ain't got no diamond rings
so i'm never gonna get a wife
i want it all under my wings
i just wanna get paid

what's so great about self-restraint?
i got my own damn garden of eden in my brain
don't gotta drag my baby out, looking like a slave
i got my own land of milk and honey driving me insane

i got something real nice in my bed
gonna wrap you up in a cage
every time you get in my head
i see you out in a different shape
but i remember when the father left
we got another 40 days

what's so great about self-restraint?
i got my own damn garden of eden in my brain
dont gotta spit that poison out to get me saved
i got my own way of being holy drinking on a train

i wanna touch the quiet maker
in the middle of the day
i wanna see the gone pourin' off
his european face
i wanna see the dirty liquor
gone cutting out my sense of taste
when your clothes are off, all your money's gone
on your favorite staircase

i wanna see the money maker
of the whole united states
and the king and i are gonna shake it off
dancin' in my cave
i wanna see the beauty faster
reflecting off my age
when your clothes are off all your money's gone
on your favorite staircase
Track Name: King
i feel i've no control
over whose weight is wanted
on the reel when i go to pull
on the big fish where the money is
and you wrestle me with ease, alone
drunk on christmas eve, walking home

to the best day
i have ever had
in the cleanest way
in the shoes of my dad
and you look at me with hate
that don't belong in this place
so i move back
and get paid

and you scoff at the colors it comes in
but it looks pretty good for our age
in the morning i grown to expect it
after coughing up most of our pay
from the sweater that you look best in
to the hate for an honest days wage
so i just quote myself again
and said I still never seen it that way

In the big hot dressing room
making sure i look clean
flashing colors like a mardi gras king
and the lid comes off for you
and no one treats you mean
until you fall asleep
i wanna know who is gonna be made king when you're gone

you were the one
who was first
who was nothing like i wanted
you to be
strumming along in reverse
it was nothing like i thought
it all would come to be
Track Name: Yankee Man
i don't care if you're from the north
i don't care if you're from the north
i just wanna be clean again
sittin' on the back porch
i don't care if you talk to whores
i don't care when you get ignored
you are gonna be king again
in every house of the lord

I don't care for the talking snakes
I don't care for the food you ate
I just wanna live in the garden
where everyone made mistakes
i don't care for the ones you hate
i don't talk to the ones you saved
i just wanna be free from them
in every house of the lord
