Track Name: A Cloth
well you go
and your body stays
somehow you said
its safer this way
you moved your arm a little
and you held your head
and you can't hear
me screaming from this side of the bed

and we try to stay home but they're
they're comin in, they're comin in.
And we try to grow old but they're
they're comin in, they're persistant.

and they tug at your belt
and they tear at your shirt
they said you'll burn
and you'll burn.
you are pathologised
you are destitute
they scream what are you
what are you?

but when my baby bleeds
i got a cloth on hand
and i sure learned early
to have a cloth on hand

just dont get lost
when you leave
i'll rub your chest
'till you come back to your body

and we take turns
hold'n down
we'll be right here
needin you 'round

and i tug at your belt
and i tear at your shirt
you just show me where it hurts

you are our kinda kid
we all got shares in this shit
and we need you
and i need you
and when we bleed
you got a cloth on hand

well you sure learned early
that i bleed
you got a cloth on hand.
Track Name: Engine Brakes
either you weren't built to last
or this place was built to tear you down
how was your maker supposed to know
they'd put a railroad through this town
they'd build a railroad and a town
they'd lay that heavy metal in the ground

and they lay the tracks down at your feet
shakes your bones and cuts your skin
makes the sound of your poor heart breakin
when that big old heavy metal rolls in
when that big dirty train rolls in
when that big old dirty train rolls in

and when the clouds are hangin low and wide
and the whole sky's a deep dark grey
i go sit by the tracks and listen
for the shrieking of the engine breaks

never learned quite how to listen
for the good lord callin on me
never heard the sound of my baby cryin
did right to set the poor child free
i never let her come on home to me

and when the clouds are hangin low and wide
and the whole sky's a deep dark grey
i go sit by the tracks and listen
for the sounds i'll never hear you make

for the shrieking of the engine breaks.
