Track Name: Coma Summer
Now I'm not saying you shouldn't be the sad one or the angry one, or anything. I suppose this might not be the best possible timing, but we lonely ones are always suffering.

I know I'm no master of tact.
I truly hate this dreadful coma summer.

We all mourned his painful passing. We mourned his painful passing, now we're fine. I take your answer's in that sad tone of voice. I'll tell you again like I told you the first time.

I know I'm no master of tact.
I truly hate this dreadful coma summer.

Be not afraid of the pain we might bring to his survivors, for we're his survivors, too. I wanted a glance, I wanted a dance, I wanted a new romance, but now I'm awash in your blues.

I'm afraid I'm awash in your blues.
(I'm afraid I don't remember and I hope you don't either.)
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. And whatever happened to all the 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: Dying
Tricia, of abundant plainness, cigarettes, and Smashing Pumpkins CDs, in the car for which she works her deli job, serving up meats on breads. I watched the rain hit her window.

I'd long been aware of the sex they shared. I'd seen them holding hands and he of course he told me all about it. After all, that's what friends are for.

It will burn a big hole. It will ruin everything. We will all be there. We will all be dying.

His cuteness and kindness had not gone unnoticed. Now we're two dreamers sleeping side by side here in this motel.

It will burn a big hole. It will ruin everything. We will all be there. We will all be dying.
Track Name: The Soul Below
She's somebody's damaged daughter, all right. She's not afraid of you, but still you won't be seeing her tonight.

You lost your grip on a whole lotta love.

She came in at the very end. She saw something that was shocking. She came in at the very end. She realized something that we already knew.

Lost, alone at last, turned on young lust. I never saw it with my own eyes, but I heard it from people I trust.

You lost your grip on a whole lotta love.

She came in at the very end. She saw something that was shocking. She came in at the very end. She realized something that we already knew.
Track Name: All the Time in the World
With all the time in the world, we built this mess. I was not yet 21, yet I confessed to this and that was that for our marital bliss.

With all the time in the world.

With all the time in the world, we both searched far and wide to waste it. Our normal circumstance is an elaborate lie. We can't stand not being occupied.

With all the time in the world.

I've got one step further to announce. Next week we'll visit a big hotel. Right here on planet Earth, jewel of the camel's eye, we'll be shooting craps while we multiply.

With all the time in the world.
Track Name: This Humdrum Town
Under the overpass, in the rain, it occurred to me. This tape told the gospel truth. Who would think such a silly song could be a guide and help to youth?

And the rain falls down on this humdrum town.

We boys got blasted out in the bathroom at Burger King. We boys drove fast for fun. Late at night, attached to the glow of the computer screen, the private joys of the lonliest one.

And the rain falls down on this humdrum town.

You are so tired of it because it's all the same. Yeah, I'm tired of it, too. You and I both know this town will never change.

And the rain falls down on this humdrum town.
Track Name: August Comes Again
A sly summer eve with Ben and Steve, arrogance and vanity, designer jeans and worried pride and another sleepy sunrise.

What did I do? Face the fact. The facts aren't fooling you two. Venus turned to Mars and now we're back.

It's a secret story. It's sad again, I'm sorry.

We play poker 'til it's dark. We gather our chips and go in as the tide turns to coal. She's a beach bunny with a runny nose.

What did I do? Face the fact. The facts aren't fooling you two. Venus turned to Mars and now we're back.

It's a secret story. It's sad again, I'm sorry.
Track Name: Our Impending Announcement
Smoking by the creek with much regret. One last cigarette. We take turns. She's laughing. I'm embarrassed by my mother's kitty hygiene concerns. Those kitty kisses break a barrier.

We held each other tight like two lonely people. We each recorded it in our own way. Me in a letter to my cousin Matthew. Soon a prayer for my judgement day emerged from the bag of the mail carrier.

The sweet sound of thunder threatens my soul out here in the darkness near the gate. I wonder if she'll come like she promised? It's early in the morning. She's running late and I wonder if I might have to marry her.
Track Name: 8-Bit Videogame
I'd never dream of anything as clean as an 8-bit videogame again. All I knew was I wanted to know more than a game could ever show me. I wanted to know everything.

I thought I knew what Encyclopedia Brown would do. Soon I was locked in the upstairs bathroom. Dad was outside weedeating. I was looking at a magazine.

I'd never dream of anything as clean as an 8-bit videogame again. All I knew was I wanted to know more than a game could ever show me. I wanted to know everything.
Track Name: The Biggest Dream
Please please be a beacon of sanity. I don't want this thing to swallow me. There's no more sweetness in our song. It's just the 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 my secrets to the room. All that passes my lips may say too much. Too many lies held us together.

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