Track Name: Pippa Nixons' Bastard
Now Love
we need to harmonize
I was wondering where the backdoor went

Now Love
there's a paradise
underwater made of wet cement
I was wondering where the back door went

Now Love
you know it's hard to smile
in the bottom of the Bard's basement
underwater made of wet cement
I was wondering where the backdoor went

There's a lover I love
when I was on the balcony she cried:
"I'd much rather die for the lover I love"

Swift wind lift the sundress
I'm not gonna lie
I wanna see you high and dry
with holes in the soles of your shoes
but it's never gonna be

Our love is a sundown
you're a pretty cage
but I'm awed by the draw of the stage
where the lie is the truth and that's all
but it's never gonna be

It's nice if you say so
but don't you dare sell it short
I'm primed for a rhyming retort
but what's the point?
it's never gonna be

There's a lover I love
when I was on the balcony she cried:
"I'd much rather die for the lover I love"
but I'm oh so cynical
Track Name: No! Scientist
Commandant come on down quick
I was wracked with a sickness
you don't care if a bad joke makes you smile
If you want you can punch you kid
I don't care about the witnesses
all I know is if he doesn't learn now he never will

Dry your eyes
stiffen that lip
you can use my handkerchief
Have you listened to a word I said?
hey I'm no scientist!
Commandant you really know how to make a guy feel blue

And I was trying to find
someone to stab me from behind

I was in luck

Commandant come on down quick
we can put aside our differences
let's pretend this never happened
If you want you can kiss your kid
this is so frivolous
Mom and Dad come and see it's a miracle

I was in luck

To think that Christ
was crucified
for the likes of you
it makes me sick
so come down quick
Track Name: The Fisherman's Wife
If I awake and you are not here...
the fisherman's wife had a dream
Of hands to hold and deadly drifting streams
the fisherman's wife had a dream
And down and down towards ever agile things
the fisherman's wife had a dream
Of skin that writhes and drips juice on your sleeves
the fisherman's wife had a dream

She woke with the light at her back
satisfaction under attack
there's nothing Wrong
"love oh so new"
I heard the fisherman's wife

If I awake and you are not here...
the fisherman's wife had a dream
And with your voice my conscience fogs and clears
the fisherman's wife had a dream

She woke with the light at her back
satisfaction under attack
there's nothing Wrong
"love oh so new"
I heard the fisherman's wife
Track Name: The Politician's Daughter
The politician's daughter was smarter than her father ever was
And once we had his wallet there wasn't any stopping us
Bathed in the moonlight we made towards the parking garage
Her youth was intoxicating
I was constantly debating who I was

The politician's daughter
loving her got harder as we went on
After the open road and coffee shops pretty soon my will was gone
So heavily sedated we agreed to compromise
even after all this time I'm not looking for things in no eyes

You know that Love is a one-term man?

Don't say a word if you put it like that
Anything sounds bad if you put it like that
Don't change your hair it looks good like that
This is a waste of my time

I don't need your love
Track Name: 04/06/12
Beautifully naked we came into the world
and dying we'll leave it alone
but I just want to know
do have a telephone
I can call you on?

It's stupid I know

But when I was a boy
who'd broken a toy
it was easily replace
I can't stand to see a pretty face

If I am the fireball
you are the powerful powder that I chase
this is gonna make a mess someday
cause you are how I escape

Beautifully naked we came into the world
and dying we'll leave it all alone
but I just wanna know
do you have a funnybone?
cause I feel so alone

It's stupid

Beautiful illusion
don't go to pieces
I don't need peace

If you need someone
I'd be the least of these
but I'll be out east

I'll be out east

I'll be the least of these
