Track Name: Swamp (Featuring Dean the Bible)
Nothings going to muck up my swamp,
swaying on the trailer bed.
On its way to the state fair,
every state fair in the country.
I'm moving along.

Getting paid in swamp,
making more of that swamp.

Winning all the games,
picking up babes on the midway.
Keeping my eye on the alligator on a stick,
beating him with my wit.
Track Name: Running For Mayor
That old town Bastard
he hide in the church.
He said I'll leave you all be
I just gotta eat first.
He demanded wine.
Gave him holy water.
He said that would do just fine.
Said he was running for mayor.
Running from a bear.
Track Name: Sturdy Elephant
Sturdy elephant riding to work,
hit a couple bums and he started to jerk,
had to keep moving so I feed him my shirt,
god damn if I didn't get to work,
ten minutes before my shift,
so I took a shit,
on the company dime.
Track Name: Barren (Alternate)
I'm drying up like African thistles
smashed against my feet as I sleep
so it don't feel anything but sweet.
Burrs and snakes,
burrs and snakes.
Sound is gone the way of the snakes,
they dry up like the grass they hiding in.
We all dry up like expensive ladies hands and faces.
We always want to know,
oh lord, where did it go?
Track Name: Best Stephen
(This song is about worshiping the famed physicist.)
Oh, best Stephen,
best of the new.
Be keeping me reasonable.
Making everything very real.
Infinite the love we have for you,
and if you only knew the thing we do.
