Track Name: Ghost Dads - Dinner Convo
Cup hot,
and you're breathing
steady,
nice and
steady.
Let the evening in.

"Thank you,
but will you be ready to leave soon?"

Water on the roof cold,
and in unison falls.
Something like "awoo" was heard
from distant neighbor's dog.

"Well, I've got nothing to do."

"Do you remember the location we were headed to?
It is a place that I have been but never driven to.
So strangely new."
Track Name: Ghost Dads - Contractual Something
Screened in,
breath thin.
Phone whines.
It's on my side,
my side.

And we quietly contract to hold our own,
soil sown.

Thumbs glide
in perfect time.
My eye
is just scanning for friend light.

And after,
and after, after all,
it's just
old.
Track Name: Ghost Dads - Gemini (Johnny "Stickerboy" Owens Cover)
I want to teach you all the things you've often wondered
but never asked,
but never asked.
I want to wash your dirty feet off with a Bible
in the bath,
in the bath.

Won't you be my Gemini?
Won't you be my friend?
Won't you be my Gemini?
Won't you be my friend?

I watched you wake up from your forty day long silence
for a laugh,
just for a laugh.
You were the only one I ever wanted
violently attached.
Well, could you be attached,

and could you be my Gemini?
Could you be my friend?
Could you be my Gemini?
Well, could you be my friend?
Could you be my friend?

Someday I'll teach you all those things we'd often wondered
but never asked,
but never asked.
Someday I'll wash your dirty feet off with a Bible
in the bath,
in the bath.

Could you be my Gemini?
Could you be my friend?
Could you be my Gemini?
Could you be my friend?
Could you be my friend?
Track Name: Ghost Dads - Fine, Bud
"That's fine,
but I might just chill tonight."
And they say,
"We'll come anyway."
It's insane,
the ways I've let that get to me.

Do you see the lines of my face
change with the hour and
company, and will it be gone?
And will he breathe? Probably not.
An open seam spilling out.
Track Name: Johnny "Stickerboy" Owens - Come On Back
It's like praying for rain to a sun god,
like digging a grave in your own yard.
I'm like a bicycle race in a hotrod
when I try not to fall for you,
when I try not to fall for you.

Now I'm living in bars and in broke shacks.
I'm waiting for you on a come back.
It's like I'm flying while reading a road map
when I try not to run to you,
when I try not to run to you.

So, come on back now
and everything will be different,
if you come on back where everything's the same.
If you come on back now
promise everything will be different.
If you come on back now
then everything is the same.

Get all turned around when you touch me.
Thoreau ain't see nothing more lovely.
Trying hard won't ever be enough, babe,
when I try not to fall for you,
when I try not to fall for you.

So, come on back now
where everything is different,
if you come on back now promise everything's the same.
So, come on back now, baby,
and everything will be different.
If you come on back now
then everything is the same.

It's like praying for rain to a sun god,
like digging a grave in your own yard.
I'm like a bicycle race in a hotrod
when I try not to fall for you,
when I try not to fall for you.
when I try not to fall for you.
Track Name: Johnny "Stickerboy" Owens - Tennessee
You'll put dead flowers on my grave,
and I'll put your picture in my broken frame.
You'll fall asleep. I'll be awake,
or I'll let you hold me when I shake.

Put your hand into my fevered head.
Did I crawl home to our bed?
Did I ask if you could stay?
I don't remember what I said.

But we'll only have Tennessee.
Love me like a once more, was it three times, baby?
Love me like we never have to leave.
Give me something to run with, baby, please.

And I don't remember the Chelsea Hotel,
and I don't remember better days,
but I know that I ain't moving on,
and I know this ache ain't going away.

But you must remember this:
a kiss is just a kiss.
A sigh is just a sigh,
and the fundamental things apply
as time goes by.

But we'll only have Tennessee.
Love me like a once more, was it three times, darling?
Love me like we never have to leave.
Give me something to run with, baby, please.
Give me something to run with, baby, please.
Give me something to run with, baby, please.
Give me something to run with, baby, please.
Track Name: Johnny "Stickerboy" Owens - Native (Ghost Dads Cover)
You came in with a wicked flash,
left me in a long zombie trance.
I don't think I understand
what you were saying when we put in pants,
it made my head feel real bad.
I don't think I like that.

We conduct our coal,
starve forever
in the general pose.

We spoke in closely interwoven prose.

We conduct our coal,
harsh and clever
in the native man's clothes.
Track Name: Johnny "Stickerboy" Owens - Gemini Pt. 2
Are you still my friend,
my Gemini,
and did you leave,
or are you home?
Can you pick me up if you're on the way by?
It's hard to wait all on my own.
Can I have you back, or are you gone?

Teach me how to fight for what I want.
Teach me how to be your only one.
Teach me how to tell my right from wrong.
Teach me how to fight for what I want.

Are your dirty feet in need of washing?
Do you still have that Bible on your shelf?
We could take it down to the river.
We could stay in, lay down in the bath.
Can you come back? It's getting bad.

I saw your roommate changing in the mirror.
Think she thought I was asleep.
I only watched her for a moment,
till I was sure she could see me.
Can I ask you now, do you really need?

Teach me how to fight for what I want.
Teach me how to be your only one.
Teach me how to tell my right from wrong.
Can you each me how to fight for what I want?

Teach me how to fight for what I want.
Can you teach me how to be your only one?
Can you teach me how to tell the right from wrong?
You teach me how to fight for what I want.
Teach me how to fight for what I want.
