Track Name: Hear Boys Talk
High country side won’t you lie in the summer with me?
Sleep with the sting of rocks they sling in heat
They think they’re wild but not like I
And each dull smile is all it hides
My mother caught me laying so Lord has got a saying for me

Boy the country fields will do you ill
To the sister city chapel, get your proper fill, he say

Dark lost trip, but my bags inside
And I’m out the door, then I realize, that

You can hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
You can hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk

The saints got an eye, say you never can hide from they
But I’m sweeping pews beneath their view all day
And they never pay a thing to say
Bout who I talk to, anyway-
If they did it was hid with a smirk and a showing of faith

And all my family and all my friends
Must think I’m some sort of alien to stay

Well, I’m homesick and I tell ‘em so
But God’s got work for an adventurous boy and

I can hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
You can hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
Hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
You can hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk

The summer’s hot but it’s getting dark
What you say about Central Park?
Smells like home in just about a hundred ways.

Well, I’m homesick and I tell ‘em so
But God’s got work for an adventurous boy and

You can hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
You can hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
Hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
You can hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
Hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
You can hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
Hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
You can hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk hear boys talk
Track Name: Why Do You Bother
I don’t see what they’re saying ‘cept I know that they’re right
And that they’re singing through their teeth with an envious eye
Cuz the kindness in their signs doesn’t bleed from the heart
And every kid has got good reason for his passionate scars

They got a letter to editor – They’re begging a better her
But they never sever ties – they got the eyes of a predator
Only try’n’ to get next to her, endeavor to tether her
And she’s warning me about their aims! She say.

She got a taste like an anthrax outbreak mismatched
Body like a battle-ax, blinding like a cataract
So try to get your facts straight, send em off to Christ Camp
Come home for the Holidays, won’t look you in the eye again

I don’t see what the point is – I’m incredibly fine
Like a pencil or a suit
And the terrible parable isn’t half as unbearable
As their chorus of disheartened abuse:

Why do you bother? Why?
Why do you bother to be in love?
Why do you bother to try?

She got a voice like a shark bite, sugar-covered knife fight
Molotov cock tease, aching for a spit shine
The science of her kindness doesn’t bleed from her heart
She got a hundred open credit lines in passionate arms

And the terrible terrible terrible terrible terrible
Terrible terrible terrible truth
Is that I’m honest to a fault line digging at a grave site
Hanging by a trip wire tapping on a landmine

Why do you bother? Why?
Why do you bother to be in love?
Why do you bother to try?

Oh my God.

Why do you bother? Why?
Why do you bother to be in love?
Why do you bother to try?
Track Name: Bite Size
Sick sense but I’m numb to see
That there’s a present hesitation in the coming feed
So I pull my teeth

Left flexed, but she feels the fool
And that’s another paragraph that she’s swallowed whole
She got a long ride home to get to eat

You gotta lift right, Bite Size;
Get set, get tight.
So sell yourself a little clearance, come on
You swing a left-right, chest height
Split lip, red light
You’re sick of spitting just what it mean

Undone, but it only eats
When you serve it like setting on a nightly beat
So, oh, no, get yourself to sleep

You gotta lift right, Bite Size;
Get set, get tight.
So sell yourself a little clearance, come on You swing a left-right, chest height
Split lip, red light
You’re sick of hearing just what I think

But, oh,
Sister, sister, no.
A fitter picture, oh
Stay close to me
Oh,
Sister, sister, no.
A little self-control
Stay on your feet
