snipe trax 2 (grundy runoff)

by Chuck Zak

there's a mountain where it doesn't belong in another world where right is wrong and the only news is a raging kong on morgantown volcano well it seems the curse of emptiness is not unique to this address and it don't hurt any less on morgantown volcano expect the unexpected wherever you reside you may think you're protected and god is on your side but then you wake up in the morning somewhere you don't know and you watch the raging fires on morgantown volcano
we were two new faces on the block and we were waiting for those animals to come to us they can't play guitar so they stab at my car in the night while I doze and sigh a love song to their wives maybe I just thought I heard you say what you used to do to keep a howling wolf away you'd stay out of sight then surround them at night with the fire is that why the rent keeps creeping up higher neighbor, please neighbor, please it's easy we can play or we can stay apart but if you see me and I seem to be sleeping just walk away I'm in a state some kinda Idaho neighbor i've come to bring you terrible news we both cannot win and we both cannot lose the ties that have bound us by now they fall down to the ground and our snouts press and the outcome's now
come pescado 02:16
Mi abuello come pescado Cuantos anos tiene? Ciento y uno anos Cuando visitas? Visito por tres horas a semana Que haceis? Miramos la television en la salon Tu es bueno nieta Y somos mis amigos] Somos no
caregiver 01:52
actually, it's over okay but can you repeat that again actually, the end I didn't want this to be the end I didn't want this to be the end I was lost when I saw the bend in the river if yr compassion fatigue permits could you help so they don't forget the caregiver actually, it's over okay but really it's not over, right actually, it might I didn't want this to end tonight I didn't want this to end tonight but the later we wait for light it grows dimmer if yr compassion fatigue allows could you smile when they ask about the caregiver I didn't want this to be the end I'm alone and I can't pretend to be with her and from a shore on another coast I will try to becalm the ghost of the caregiver
happpy 02:15
finally, my appetite has overwhelmed my inhibition and I can say goodnight to doubt, fear, pain, and superstition If I had met you way back then with all I know about you know well maybe we could tell a friend before I met you I was out of mind
the island 02:36
the screw 03:16
when I'm with you I don't know why I'm so insecure like I'm back at school eyes on the floor turning every word to powder looking for a clue what you're thinking when I talk to you you don't say anything you turn the screw I lose sleep wondering it's all I ever do you came out of a cloud like you do it everyday you cut down the crowd like a gamma ray flooding deep into the marrow yes it's that severe and though it's obvious I'm close to tears, here you don't say anything you turn the screw hung over wondering it's all I ever do in your eyes i see no deception if that was all it took i wouldn't mind but tell me why
oh god i'm only getting older now the sweet surreal years are they over now? can i live without something odd about? what are these images in my memory i can't pin them down or guarantee they belong to me who could that face be? and it's real to me as real as something should be out in light of day better to be suspended in space miles away
how can they walk the way that they used to walk? the barrytones used to walk down my street when i was seventeen and afraid of my own shadow do you know what i mean? when i say they were so... how can they play the way that they used to play? but it says they are going to play this evening here come the barrytones everything's changed it's different in every way there won't be another day like this day here come the barrytones


Bunch of benchwarmer tunes from back in the day.
