Track Name: Girl Police
the girl police are coming over, comb your hair pretend you're sober
andy, lock the stash in the bottom drawer.
the woman fuzz are coming for us, they're hardened by drawn out divorces
averse to our verses, deplore the chorus.

ooh hoo, they surround our places... arrested by our handsome faces
the cold, long arm of the law has got ruby glitter painted claws.

the lady cops are coming for me, let's Jovi out in a blaze of glory
tell my ma i'm sorry, that's my story.
it was our antic romantic disasters, that got the girl cops lord in after us
to drag our names through the mud, to get their hands in our blood.

ooh hoo, they want to hole us up in their lockdown... a year for every precious heart we've
knocked down. less a day for every night we rocked out. (and we always rocked out)

cause stephy likes jimmy, but jimmy likes eric and eric likes jess. its an awful mess an awful mess. denis caught monique kissing on francois outside the depaneur,
so they're done for sure...
Track Name: The Ghosts We're Buried On
granddad had a 6 string he played bad, but didn't he sing with all the soul he had
late night summer time backyard granddad swoons
some off key willie and johnny out of tune
i learned quick what a mess a song can fix
when life was shit, we hummed along to it
and our problems went (wing, bang bang, ring dang dang) gone
that's how we got along

oh i, got my soul from the ghosts that we're buried on
i get my love from the cemetery i got my soul from the ghosts we're buried on

22 carlton up on high street, you could come find me
living with my uncles and my teenaged mother, grandma and my cousin and a couple others
with my 2nd hand shirt, i walked in 2nd hand shoes
and in a second i'll put on another record, let me choose for ya
how about the blues brothers? i cannot turn you loose?

i learned fast that a mess would never last
longer than it taked to hum, it passed
and our problems went (wing, bang bang, ring dang dang) gone
that's how we got along

oh i, got my soul from the ghosts that we're buried on
i get my love from the cemetery i got my soul from the ghosts we're buried on
i got your soul granddad when you carried on, i kept the load on the road that you tarried on
i got my soul from the ghosts that we're buried on

soul.
Track Name: Small Mercies
ain't no one in this world got love for me
save for barbers thieves and bartenders
and 2 girls on 7th street
so cut my hair, relieve me of my things
drive me down the road, 2 girls i know
are bound to get me drinks

life, she saves some small mercies for me
oh life, she save some small mercy please

i've roamed this world just long enough to see
that there's more in life than these eyes know
that most remain unseen
so i've mapped it out with hearts and charts and dreams
before we leave home for parts unknown
let's roll down 7th street

life, she saves some small mercies for me
oh life, she save some small mercy please
Track Name: Terrified
i'm terrrified no one will want to be mine
we're paralyzed, we're going no where, well thats life
when i'm this alone, i know its time to carry on before too long.

well, i've been lonesome long enough baby
i've been bored enough for both of us
and now i'm feeling what it cost lately
i know exactly what 've lost lady
so i'm going back to how it was because, because...

i like you, i guess you know that.
i suppose you could like me too
just like i want you

if it hurts when you bleed, if you need
you can terrify me (just like i want you)

i'm searching for whatever it was i had before
i lose anymore
