Track Name: [redacted]
I pop up on your screen
Show up in your dream
Never saying what I mean
Baby, what do you think I mean?

Ooh, child, I've got a scheme
—coyote's thumbing through his catalog—
And I don't know what it means and I'm afraid to find out
Oh I don't know what it means don't know what it means I don't know...

So strong it had to be redacted
I can't retract it
Had to redact it
And when you look for me you'll find me in between the brackets

I know my time ain't long
—aw, it's doomed from the start, baby—
I think I done somebody wrong
I think it's off and then it's on
—which one is it today, sugar?
I think I got the whole thing wrong

So strong it had to be redacted
I can't retract it
Had to redact it
And when you look for me you'll find me in between the brackets
Loving you
Oh, lost and loving you
Track Name: Bizness
If I represent the one that did this to you
Then cut away the part that represents the thing that scarred you oooo
Get up stand up get up stand up get on with
Yes I am no longer who you thought this one would be

Beyond, up here on the mountain that I climbed to lose you
I saw every bit of business that business could work through
I said ask me but oh my wisdom departed
I said tell me but oh my wisdom departed but
oh please, answer me this, answer me this, answer me!

What’s the business, yeah?
don’t take my life away don’t take my life away
From a distance, yeah
don’t take my life away don’t take my life away
I’m a victim, yeah
don’t take my life away don’t take my life away
I’m addicted, yeah
don’t take my life away don’t take my life away

If you just press all your fingers down under my skin
—come onnn do it—
Lift up lift up lift up and breathe for me
I said oooo I’ll bleed if you ask me
oooo I’ll bleed if you ask me but
that’s when that’s when she said no

What’s the business, yeah?
don’t take my life away don’t take my life away
From a distance, yeah
don’t take my life away don’t take my life away
I’m a victim, yeah
don’t take my life away don’t take my life away
I’m addicted, yeah
don’t take my life away don’t take my life away
Track Name: The Decline and Fall
Another lump of Southern Gothic cheese
Bringing me to my knees
Darling, please
Don't you know you're killing me?
Another drama rapidly unfolds
Quickly taking hold
Does it ever grow old?
I submit that it do

The mansion burns in the distance
And the swell of the strings
As the death knell rings

And Aunt Liza's ghost roams the graveyard
And I'm looking at my watch 'cause I'm so tired
and it's time to go home
Hey
I'd like to go home

The decline and the fall
The disgrace of it all
And the thundering comes
From the thundering drums
And my stars, is that the time?
How it does fly!

The sad black moan from the river's edge
And the spanish moss swings
Above the crawl of the night things

And of course, my dear, I would dearly love
To wring the tears from your opera glove
But I've got to go home
It's late
I've got to go home

The plantation burns in the distance

CHORUS

So watch the cobwebs fly
As you take a rake
To your ancient moldy old wedding cake

And you polish your silver in solitude
Or just overdose on Quaaludes™ or whatever
And it's all very well but it's late, Blanche, and I've got to go home

It's late and I've got to go home

I've got to go home
Track Name: Magic Hour
There's a mountain lion loose in the hills
Or so they say
So meet me at the fake castle there
Just at the end of day
And if we're lucky and in love
We can avoid becoming prey
They call it
Magic hour

Coyote's loose on the lawn
In this old park
Better get control of him
Before it gets too dark
Ain't no tellings what he'll do
Just for a lark
When it's
Magic hour

I'm afraid, my friend,
it's the end of this old town
They've put out the lights
And the sun is going down
The smog on the hills
Is fading into brown
Like it does in the magic hour

And my magic's lost its spark
Perhaps I'll see you in the park
Just before the dark
In the magic hour
And the sun is sinking low
In the California glow
And it's hard to let it go
But it's magic hour

And all my lovers
And friends lost to time
No use pretending that
I'll see you down the line
But some of these days
You'll be on my mind when it's
Magic hour
