Track Name: Hopeless Melody
Burning bright
Still watching the river rise
With a casual misery
Biding time
Destroy yourself leisurely
To the hopeless melody
Knocking about with Le Case Sociale in my town
Kicking around with the ones who know
They’ll never get out
Staring at the photographs of the homes for sale
While the dogs fight down where the homeless crowd
Telling yourself there’s an easy way out
Hanging around with Le Cas Sociale
Feeling beat down
Sticking it out ‘cause it’s too late now to be anywhere else
Checking if the cash machine might heed your prayers
But the likelihood is that no one cares
How it feels to be…
Burning bright
Still watching the river rise
With a casual misery
Biding time
Destroy yourself leisurely
To the hopeless melody
Bopping around with Le Case Sociale
Cracking up now
Haunting the town ‘cause they feel so proud
To be out of this realm
Well open your windows
See how the wind blows
Through your time
Burning bright
Still watching the river rise
With a casual misery
Biding time
Destroy yourself leisurely
To the hopeless melody

Track Name: Coming Up Roses (Elliott Smith)
I'm a junk yard full of false starts
And I don't need your permission
To bury my Love under this bare light bulb
The moon is a sickle cell
It will kill you in time
Your cold white brother will ride in your blood
Like spun glass in your sore eyes
While the moon does its division your buried below
And your coming up roses everywhere you go red roses follow
The things that you tell yourself
They will kill you in time
Your cold white brother alive in your blood
Spinning in the night sky
While the moon does its division your buried below
And your coming up roses everywhere you go red roses follow
So you got in a kind of trouble that nobody knows
And your coming up roses everywhere you go red roses follow

Elliot Smith
