Track Name: Obedience Blues
When you turned thirteen, you were suddenly such an ugly thing. I've seen the photographs but please believe me, I would never laugh at you. I want so badly to be back there then to provide what few comforts I can.

Your young hands cradle the receiver as you whisper and you wait. I'm out there waiting, too: Fourteen and not too cool.

When you stay up so late, I wish I was by your side, listening to your father's records and drinking his wine. I had late nights of my own. I spent every one of them alone.

And while you were getting stoned, I said no to cigarettes and every other invitation. And while you were having sex, I was watching Cinemax.
Track Name: August Comes Again
A summer eve with Ben and Steve, arrogance and vanity,
Designer jeans and worried pride and another sleepy sunrise

Whatever I did, face the fact:
Facts aren't fooling you two
Been here before, now we're back
And I know what to do

It's the same old story
It's sad again, I'm sorry
It's the same old story
It's sad again, I'm so sorry

We play poker 'til it's dark, gather our chips and go in
But the water's too cold, she's a beach bunny with a runny nose

Whatever I did, face the fact:
Facts aren't fooling you two
Been here before, now we're back
And I know what to do

It's the same old story
It's sad again, I'm sorry
It's the same old story
It's sad again, I'm so sorry
Track Name: This Humdrum Town
Beneath the overpass in the rain it occurs to me
This tape tells the gospel truth
Who would think such a sad song could be
A guiding comfort for a wayward youth

The rain falls hard on a humdrum town
This town will drag you down

We boys get blasted out in the bathroom at Burger King
We boys drive fast for fun
Late at night in the glow of the computer screen
The private joy of the loneliest one

The rain falls hard on a humdrum town
This town will drag you down

You are tired of it because it's all the same
I'm tired of it, too
You and I both know this town will never change
And it has no use for me or you

The rain falls hard on a humdrum town
This town will drag you down
Track Name: The Biggest Dream #1
Please, please be a beacon of sanity
I don't want this thing to swallow me
There's no more sweetness in our song
Just a long wait for what we want

Once I dreamed the biggest dream
Now I don't dream anything

Someday soon I may well be babbling
Spilling all I have out to the room
All my words may say too much
If these secrets and lies still hold us together

Once I dreamed the biggest dream
Now I don't dream anything
Track Name: My Disfigured Face
I fell asleep as the helicopter took me further from my friend
The doctors called me the lucky one, but that just depends

We rode up that mountain like it was a race
Can you learn to love my disfigured face?

I woke up in the afternoon, my friend was in his grave
You were there beside me, beautiful and brave

The cars came together, I witnessed the human host
Spilling out its insides, giving up its ghost
Track Name: Stuck-on Stars
It's such a sleepy feeling, staring at the ceiling,
Caring about nothing but the stuck-on stars glowing green

I've arranged the constellations
I sleep alone under my heavens
As they fade away

Appearing here the initials of Monica, now pregnant and married
Whatever happened to all these Jessicas I knew in high school?

I've arranged the constellations
I sleep alone under my heavens
As they fade away

Beauty, beauty, beauty
There's nobody near me
There never was
Track Name: Our Impending Announcement
Smoking by the creek, she admits no regret
One last cigarette, we take turns
She laughs at me as I reveal
My high-minded mother's concerns:
Those kinds of kisses break a barrier

We held each other tight like two lonely people
Lately we don't seem to have much to say
I write a letter to my cousin Matthew
Soon a prayer for my judgment day
Emerges from the bag of the mail carrier

The soft sound of thunder threatens my soul
Out here in the darkness near the gate
I wonder if she'll come like she said
It's early in the morning, she's running late,
And I wonder if I might have to marry her
Track Name: The Biggest Dream #2
Pop another cola cream
But let's not think it breaks a dam
Never mind what might be claimed
Tilt the bottle, drain it down

You always were a big success
Catching breaks out on the lake
But when it came to all the rest
Your life was full of mistakes

Once you dreamed the biggest dream
Now you don't dream anything
At all

Kiss another cutie pie
Walk again down to the pier
Close again, but yet not quite
Hand in hand, held so near

Should your love refuse your ring
You'd never guess the reason why
I know a rope where we can swing
We won't forget but still we'll try

Once you dreamed the biggest dream
Now you don't dream anything
At all
