Track Name: Dog Days
it's the wrong season for dog days
it's the wrong time of year
it's wrong with the seasons but right with the grieving
it's the wrong time of year

hop along susan let's get going
hop along sarah, too
i was caught in the middle of everyone's riddle
what am i expected to do
Track Name: Care Again
get yr paws off, kid
you're a horrible mess

i can't be what you want me to be
Track Name: Carrot Cake Dress
ooo wee
you've made a mess
watch me clean it up
in a carrot cake dress
grab my cane
and fetch your hat
i'm glad you came
remember that
paris seems
much lonelier now
that you're not on the green
or in a wedding gown
play that scene
i don't remember how
Track Name: Nervous Breakfast
and i'm always nervous
when it comes to breakfast
but i'm always honest when my love perplexes me
you won't see me
Track Name: Odetta
since you've been gone
i get stoned and watch the twilight zone
all alone
since you've been gone
i don't eat
i write letters you won't read
Odetta, please.

take me home, if you can
take it slow, i'm new at this man
Odetta, no, don't go.
Track Name: Day Dogs (reprise)
it's the wrong season for dog days
it's the wrong time of year
it's wrong with the seasons and right with the grieving
it's the wrong time of year

hop along susan let's get going
hop along sarah, too
i was caught in the middle of everyone's riddle
what am i expected to do
Track Name: Almost Recognized
there's a gypsy band in a caravan
and they're riding the state lines
i was right there in the middle with a penny and a fiddle
just trying to pay my fines

and Mississippi, don't look so lonely
you ain't abandoned yet
i have traveled oh so lonely
just to wait on your steps

and the thick spray paint from the drummer's case
it blackened out my eyes
as i went to space with a certain face that i almost recognized

don't take it so bad
you were cruel from the start
i can take another broken heart
Track Name: Michelle
i wanna live by the beach
hang with the stars and drink with the moon
roll through your valley without a fucking clue
oh Michelle, there's something about you

honey, that's what i'll do

i wanna live by the beach
with a west coast girl who will get me plump
and treat me kind like the weather charts
while all her friends read my tarot cards
spend my nights high like a shooting star

honey, it won't be hard
honey, life's not hard.
Track Name: For Them or For Me
i go through the days sun up to sun down
i answer to no one and no one calls out
i go through the days alone in a cloud
i pass by the hours like drifting in dreams
i spot the headlights wade in the street
and i wonder if they're coming for them
or for me.

these days it's so hard to tell
i'm old enough to buy but young enough to resell
these days it's so hard to tell
i'm young enough to buy but old enough to resell

i still see your face in everyone that i know
the roommates i live with the mirror in my home
so i'll drive up north & pretend i don't know where i'm going.
