No more Fox on the box I’m changing the locks Anything that’s loose should roll It’s no good to be haunted When all that you wanted Is someone you once thought you knew You’re so Jekyll, you’re so Jekyll You’re so Jekyll, now you can’t hide Let’s drink to the working class New friends from the recent past Leaving here without their cash We’ll kill em with kindness Forgive them their river blindness Everything that happens, happens fast You’re so Jekyll, you’re so Jekyll You’re so Jekyll, now you can’t hide I’m a teepee and you’re a wigwam Baby between us, we’re just two tents I’m surprised to see you here again In light of recent events I wouldn’t bark up a tree If you could look down at me If you could see what I see, you’d turn around and run Turn around and run Chart a course for the setting sun Give up the catbird seat and flee You’re so Jekyll, you’re so Jekyll You’re so Jekyll, now you can’t hide You’re so Jekyll, you’re so Jekyll Baby you’re so Jekyll, now you can’t hide

Why you gotta be so mad Why you gotta look like your dad He’s in the mirror one day Grow a beard he’ll go away hey hey Why you gotta be like this Everything marked down on a list What was good is bad today Head in the clouds but never gray hey hey Grow a beard So I can’t see what’s in my face Grow up to find that I had missed Moved from column a to b on the list Prodigal son now written off Golden boy now semigloss oh yeah You’ve been beating out a path Charm city bards and ink-stained polymaths But its all an adman’s pitch Bait that sucker pull that switch oh yeah Grow a beard So I can’t see what’s in my face I'll grow a beard so I can’t see So I can't see what’s in my face Oh now your soul Now it is an open book But you never think to look At the words you wrote inside Now there was a house that we once built But now the walls begin to tilt Gutters sag pipes full of silt oh yeah

How you gonna live this way more leaks out now everyday I can't take your fine derision spray the mist blur the vision You're so empty you're a glass fill it up with smokey ash Cokeheads struck with reefer madness basking in the rays of badness The void set yeah Where’d you learn to lie where’d you learn to lie like that? Slick the hair and pull it back move the mask up there's a crack Empty souls make ugly faces shove the eyeball back in place Bible thumpin' porn star humpin' kiddy prisons anti-wisdom Burnin' coal burnin' souls burnin' hacks burnin' facts The void set yeah Where’d you learn to lie where’d you learn to lie like that? Oh to be at home to be at home to be at home Oh to be at home to be at home in this world this stupid world The void set yeah Where’d you learn to lie where’d you learn to lie like that?

Across the fields, you know the deal Bound to appeal, it’s all for real You’re like me, I can see Free to be a mutiny All the signs were there to find Behind the lines, Sevens, eights and nines It was a test, the best never rest Success: our only manifest

Hey there Gaston you were such a fickle bachelor But you always knew the difference between a house and a home You go running after someone don't you know that you can’t catch her Her fragile body splits life from oblivion Bourbon on ice it's what think that I was drinking You had a martini with a twist and what a twist it was The past is another place won't you tell me how to get there The taxi driver shrugs and takes another fare

When things go bad, no one can know How bad they get, that’s when we go To the sea, the silver sea That’s where I’ll bring them back to me We scratch and bite, and tear our clothes We push and shove, until we go To the sea, the silver sea That’s where I’ll bring them back to me Two little birds Two little stones So far so good So far to go Now every night, the darkness grows We fade away, we have to go To the sea, the silver sea That’s where I’ll bring them back to me Two little birds Two little stones So far so good So far to go

I can tell by the cut of your jib we won’t be friends Not 'til the end of days, not this weekend I hate the way you look, can’t stand the way you stare Look into your eyes, there’s nothing there They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder Let’s give it a shot I’m never gonna be your first responder…no, no, no I’m not I won’t be the one to drown in all your chemicals Though you pushed me to the edge You and me, we were better as a hypothetical Not gonna talk you off the ledge They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder Let’s give it a shot I’m never gonna be your first responder…no, no, no I’m not Some people cry all the time Some people never do Some people say they know you well And wish they never heard of you They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder Let’s give it a shot I’m never gonna be your first responder…no, no, no I’m not

Hey there aerial bender you’re gonna go straight in the end Hey there broke big spender your figures add up in the end Crossfit Jesus he rides his four wheel drive Right over the Watchung mountainside On and on and on we go Circle back to what we know Hey Clyde whatcha wearing you’re gonna go square in the end Hey there summer strummer you’ve gotta do right in the end Single gear dad rides his well-shaped thighs Right over the Watchung mountainside On and on and on we go Circle back to what we know

The moon was made of rayon cities made of silk Mosses woven into teflon sewers rich with krill Kids all down on Valley rich folks on the hill Agree its not worth the hassle to keep what we could kill Well the leopard has stopped shining The sun has lots its spots The mosquitos gave up whining It’s all for you... It’s all for you... Well the tower is a tunnel when you’re in the southern reach Certified all natural ruins in the forests where concrete whales have beached At the end of the world there are mushrooms sing the hymnal songs Slime molds weigh their options and let us pass along Well the leopard has stopped shining The sun has lots its spots The mosquitos gave up whining It’s all for you... It’s all for you... It’s all for you...
