Track Name: Predictions / You'll Die
You thought of what to say, oh didn't you?
Picked through all of my words, you little sleuth.

You made all of your predictions
about how you and I would lay in the sun.

Well you can't tell the future, the future,
No matter how hard you try,
And one day you will lay down and you'll die.

You can't tell the future, the future,
No matter how hard you try,
And one day you will lay down and you'll die.

But don't cry.
You'll die.
Don't you cry that you'll die.
Oh oh oh babe don't you cry don't you cry.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh oh oh oh oh.
Track Name: Crucifix
I still can't think of the words to start this song.
I thought I was in a circle of people who could do no wrong.
I am supposed to be the fuck-up, the one you can let go.
But when you forget how to breathe oh yeah I'll let you know.

I'll let you know.
Oh I'll let you know.
I'll let you know.
I'll let you know.

'Cause I'm not scared there won't be a "you and a me."
I'm just scared there won't be a "you" for me to see.

I knew a friend she called a friend he was the junkie in our town.
Had blonde hair sleek and shining he talked so very loud.
I knew he was a problem that I just couldn't fix.
So I laid in my friend's bed clutching her imaginary crucifix.

I just held on.
Oh I just held on.

'Cause I'm not scared there won't be a "you and a me."
I'm just scared there won't be a "you" for me to see.
'Cause I'm not scared there won't be a "you and a me."
I'm just scared there won't be a "you" for me to see.

There won't be a you for me to see.
There won't be a you for me to see.
There won't be a you for me to see.
Track Name: Throw Up Your Future
The future is a pistol I swallowed for dinner last night.
The future is a lunch I couldn't hold down today.
The future is another aching meal.
The future is pain that I can't feel.

But if you want to go there you can be my guest,
but I'm just fine staying in the wild wild past.

The future is a song I already wrote.
The future is a song I know how to sing.
The future is playing in your backyard.
The future is playing at your corner store

And if you want to go there you can be my guest, but I'm just fine staying the wild wild past.

The wild wild past.
The wild wild past.
Track Name: How To Treat Others
Hey men treat those women right.
Even if you don't love them make sure they feel alright.
Hey men treat those women right.
Because they don't owe you anything and that fact will remain true.

Hey women treat your father right.
For years and years they've protected you from all those neighborhood boys.
Hey women treat your father right.
Even though they grounded you, scolded you, everything they did was right.

And everything is love, lovely even if you don't love me. Oh everything is love, lovely 'cause I'll love you anyway.

Hey pets treat your owners right.
Keep those paws clean. Don't shit on the carpet.
Hey pets treat your owners right.
Because we need you so much more than you need us; it's disgusting.

Hey owners treat your pets right.
Only buy them the best food and never ever harm them.
Hey owners treat your pets right.
And just accept the fact that you need them so much more than they need you.

And everything is love, lovely even if you don't love me. Oh everything is love, lovely 'cause I'll love you anyway.

Hey children treat your parents right.
Don't write on the walls and always do your dishes.
Hey children treat your parents right.
Because they work hard to provide you with that life you hold so dear.

Hey parents treat your children right.
Don't kill them. Don't maim them even if it feels so right.
Hey parents treat your children right.
Even when they get into drugs, violence, and alcohol.

And everything is love, lovely even if you don't love me. Oh everything is love, lovely 'cause I'll love you anyway.

I'll love you anyway. Yes I'll love you anyway. I'll love you anyway. Yes I'll love you anyway. I'll love you anyway. Yes I'll love you anyway. I'll love you anyway. Anyway that I can. Anyway that I can.
