Track Name: Fox
A fox can't change
its cruel and strange
to make them live all civilized
when their instincts remain

some fox were raised
to think they're tame
they didn't realize
they were foxes all these days

Now we already knew that I was a man
recently realized and we must understand
I loved you were wild, and you love what I am not
Well fox can't date no man and a man can't date no fox

Well a mans the same
and some things you can't change
no matter how hard we both might try
a man remains

wild hearts you can't tame
and thats ours I'm afraid
they'll just grow sad and insane
if you try to keep them chained

Well a fox can't date no man
And a man can't date no fox
You can't change I'm a man
and darling you're a fox
Track Name: Flea Market
Allison wakes up on Sunday morning
puts on a plaid plaid skirt and drives to the flea market
smokes her cigarettes and drinks her coffee
and on her car stereo is Johnny Too Bad

Allison its Sunday Morning
and I'm at your window
callings out to you

I asked Allison why she always looks so sad
she said I wouldn't understand, so don't even try
I told her last night I wrote a song for her until my fingers bled
she said "let your fingers bleed I won't lose no sleep"

Allison its Sunday Morning
and I'm at your window
callings out to you

Well Allison sleeps, every single day
lying in her bed, pretending its her grave
if she ever dies
