Track Name: Cornfield Lovers
you can't see me over here
amongst the amber waves of grain and fear
curious little boy, so queer
this town ain't big enough for the both of us
this town's not big enough for me and you

we're still out of breath from the chase
we never drink, we hate the taste
you'll never get me back to this place
my daddy's gonna die
my daddy's gonna die

everybody's got shit on me
your mom went and called the police
i'm innocent, i blew the scene
the secretary is never pleased

word sure travels fast in this place
the tornado took my words and spit them in your face
it doesn't matter if i ever state my case
this town already made up its mind
this town already made up its mind

and truth or dare, that wasn't my idea
but now i dare you to tell the truth, i'd really like to see you
ask your dad if it's a good career
as the credits roll by
as the credits roll by

had it happened yet that summer
we made a bed out of dirt
lock up your sons and your grandmothers
this summer's gonna hurt

everybody's got shit on me
your mom went and called the police
i'm innocent, i blew the scene
the secretary is never pleased
Track Name: Dance Mix '98
we stayed up all night learning all the words
you've got the chorus, i've got the verse
we made a dance but it's not necessarily ready

we'll put on a show for everyone to see
you, me, mom and dad and the other three
it won't be great but at least we tried

it's christmas eve
do you know what that means
it means something early and something for me
this christmas what will it be
this christmas eve i got a cd

we'll skip the other songs, we don't like them at all
i don't like norwegian pop, never heard dancehall
i'm sure they're fine but tonight it's just i'll be missing you

lay down on the carpet, lay down on the bed
you don't have black, blue or green so i'll just use red
it's not the same without you here

it's christmas eve
do you know what that means
it means something early and something for me
this christmas what will it be
this christmas eve i got a cd
Track Name: The Maple City
drive me downtown to the station
pick me up at the end of the line
i'm going upstate for the weekend
leaving all my friends behind

i walked along the muddy river
looked for a place to wait and hide
a few more blocks 'til we're off broadway
which means a few more blocks left of limelight

this town will never change since 1985 it's always been the same
this town will never change since 1985 it's always been the same

and in this town of carnivals and high times and lows
we'll watch bad movies on the satellite and roll and roll and roll and roll

we roll the papers and smoke a j
is this a movie? it's gotta be
Track Name: Haiku
i will build a heart
made of chat logs and snow banks
and you will melt it
i'm sure you will melt it

i will kick them out
folding over and over themselves
i'll tell you about it
after i tell them all about it

it's just a story i made up in my mind
and i tell it to get sympathy so don't say it's a lie
don't tell this to anyone, i trust you to be true
you know that song 'my favorite mistake'? she wasn't talking about you

i will write a song
full of tired cliches
and you will hate it
i'm sure you will hate it

you'll be another story
another notch on my bedpost
i'll tell it to the grandkids
another cautionary tale

it's just a story i made up in my mind
and i tell it to get sympathy so don't say it's a lie
don't tell this to anyone, i trust you to be true
you know that song 'my favorite mistake'? she wasn't talking about you
