Track Name: Song of the Dead
There she goes
Down the cellar stairs
And out the window

No one knows
That she lived her life
From apothecary jars
Didn’t get too far
No one recalls and so I’ll sing this song about you

Brother George
Was selling paint
From a strip mall down in Clawson
Fred started poor
And Dercy worked on the coast
Where Johnny played
Memories fade
No one recalls and so I’ll sing a song about you

The Butcher
The Baker
The little pill taker
The factory girl who made your bed
The forgotten souls
Whose bent shoulders we stand on
And then toss aside when they’re dead

And what of me?
Will I for once
Be a woman known forever?

Or will I be
Just another puzzle piece
In row 16?
Almost unseen?

Will they recall?
Will they still sing this song about me?
Track Name: Candy
Oh Candy
How I love you
My path is lit by the stars that shine above you

Though I met you in my Sunday school
I’ve had some impure thoughts of you
And later on in freshman year
I changed my major to be near you
Oh Candy

How I need you
My heart is pure and my aim is guaranteed true

We’ll make love in a parking lot
While I’ll try to be what I’m not
I’ll take a job in your Dad’s store
In hopes to make you want me more
Oh Candy

I’ve dreamt our rendezvous
A unity of two
A match that’s Venus made
That’s why I’m here to serenade you

I guess I’ve lost you
‘Cause I saw you at in your Daddy’s store with Matthew
Well I felt the sting of your rejection
Now upon some deep reflection
I see the only life for me
Is something called celibacy.
Oh Candy
