Track Name: Saigon (Di Di Mau)
there's rats in the water
swimming laps all around
there's no going back now
di di mau

one shot to remember
your face in the crowd
there's no going back now
di di mau
Track Name: Pioneer Cannibalism
the wagon train got lost in the hills
what a state we're in
all we wanted was to see the ocean

mary's got a pocket knife
hidden in her purse
she can't decide which cut to make first

we've go strong appetites
and wills to survive
we'll eat until we're full
yeah we're pioneer cannibals

henry is the medicine man
who stuck us in the mud
we're pushing put that wagon won't budge

well i don't know about medicine, man
but i can chop dead wood
snake oil never tasted so good

winter came and that was the end
guess we died in sin
never got to see the ocean
Track Name: Sirens
it's getting harder to resist
we used to hurry past
listening in the mist
pinioned to a mast

singing the same old siren song
on and on
caught in the swell of something strong
calls us all
sirens

we were told what to expect
but sailors never learn
in the shallows with the rest
crested on a berm
Track Name: Leviathan
sailed into the sound
gales push us around
ships running aground

tails hitting the bow
whales pulling us down
shit, everyone drowned

sail on
cut the line
there's always one leviathan
Track Name: Chappy
someone help there has been
a terrible accident
drove a car off a bridge
i'll never be president

there's nothing east of here
it used to be there, now it's gone
the night is cold, but the water's fine
and the ocean grows wider all the time.

i'll never be president
never come when you call
swimming out past the break
i'm going home. fuck you all.
