Dirty River 02:37
Throw some chain around your own feet And go swimming And go swimming And go swim in that dirty river Dirty river, that dirty river My new friend The hairs on my chest’ll turn to hammers And they’ll beat me, near to death And they’ll beat me, near to death Throw me into, then throw me into That dirty river I’ll be laying, in the river bed, I’m in I’ll be sleeping with the bream I’ll be sleeping with the bream But I’ll be smiling, I’ll be smiling that bony grin Wishing my boss would just drop dead and leave me, leave me be and just leave me, leave me be I’ll get some rest, I’ll get some rest I’ll get some rest Keep on running dirty river Keep on flowing Mmm keep on growing Keep on knowing Where you’re going Dirty river, you dirty river My old friend

I’m tired, I’m done Everything I’ve become I just don’t know if I can go on This road is so long and my shoes are wearing down I am undone Like a rambling run On a highway somewhere Pulling out my hair Like a ball of twine Tangled up in my mind I’m losing track need a map to take me back I’m tired, I’m done Every thing life’s become I’m just not sure of anything anymore Might just close the door I’m calling it in, the light is going dim

He’s the Vermin Control Man Such a funny looking man—I see him 70 series; yellow—red pin striping He’s driving, he’s driving There’s other people I know—kicking around It’s just the Vermin Control Man I see him getting round my home town The Vermin Control Man Never seen him working—then again, I don’t have rats or other vermin is his name Herman? My silly questions I think I need resting I best be sleeping There’s other people I know—getting round It’s just the Vermin Control Man I see him driving ‘round and ‘round my home town The Vermin Control Man

I found my trade, being a man of sorrow You can leave it to me I’ll have it done by tomorrow This is all I’ll ever be A man broken and hollow But I’ll help you grow your lawns I’ll help you grow your lawns With tears of pain Tears that fall like rain Tears of pure pain Tears that fall like rain Tears of pure pain Tears that fall like rain They fall like rain I made this trade, being a man that’s hollow It’s written on my van 1800-SORROW I’m working everyday Sad in every way But I’ll help you grow your lawns I’ll help you grow your lawns I’ll help you grow your lawns I’ll help you grow your lawns With tears of pain Tears that fall like rain Tears of pure pain Tears that fall like rain Tears of pure pain Tears that fall like rain Tears of pure pain Tears that fall like rain Fall like rain

Only silence paves the way paves the way Only silence saves the day saves the day The more I talk the less I see that my thoughts are more like me The less I talk the more that I see that these words hopelessly fall too short of what I see I may as well cross a sea Only silence paves the way paves the way Only silence saves the day saves the day The more I talk the less I see that my thoughts are more like me The less I talk the more that I see that these words hopelessly fall too short of what I see I may as well cross a sea

That I Love 02:13
This world I’ve stepped in Yesterday’s fool is king No one don’t mind they just keep pressing on The sky above the cloud today I’m feeling proud I found a girl that I love That I love This world I’ve stepped in hit us on the chin It don’t matter no one they just keep dreaming on The sun above the sky Forget the reasons why I found a girl that I love That I love That I love That I love

Anyway 03:54
People trying helplessly People dying—you and me Endless scrolling, endlessly I tried to call, didn’t you see? Why won’t you speak to me? Come on brother, set us free Why I worry, endlessly I tried to call, didn’t you see? I will ask if you are okay but I know what you will say I know what you will say I will ask you anyway But I know what you will say I know what you will say I’ll ask you anyway It ain’t over for you or for me Come on lover—tenderly Why I wonder, endlessly I tried to call, didn’t you see? I will ask if you are okay but I know what you will say I know what you will say I will ask you anyway And I know what you will say I know what you will say I will ask if you are okay But I’ll ask you anyway You’re trying anyway I will know what you will say
