Track Name: Hunger March
HUNGER MARCH

the poorer the singer
the richer the song
some days we eat
some days we don't
march on through your hunger
they're beating back the crowds
into the old town

we steal your empty bottles
make bovril in the puddles
never google gogol
or they'll check your file
night on bald mountain
without winter shoes
breadline to the moon

the poorer the singer
the richer the song
this song is food for all

mothers and their orphans
washing on the shore
obesity is fiction
the stench of piss is strong
nothing cures the hunger
no matter how much food
a common lad consumes

in the church of the spilled blood
or the holy potato
children stick their tongues out
for the demon wafer of monsanto
the gods are drinking gravol
watch out they don't peuk
get up off your pews

the poorer the singer
the richer the song
this song is food for all
Track Name: The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Singer Songwriter
THE LONELINESS OF THE LONG-DISTANCE SINGER-SONGWRITER

oh my darlin
oh susanah
you are like a red red rose
but now the nightingale
tells his fairy tale
where did all your long hair go

oh the loneliness of the long distance singer songwriter
send me back my love

oh my bonnie
little suzie
all i have to do is dream dream dream
but everybody’s talking at me
i’m alone again naturally
oh the loneliness of the long-distance singer songwriter
you’ll still be the one

it’s 1976 and i’m in trouble with the law again
i’m out on route 66 and indiana wants me lord
lord i can’t go back there

rainy days and mondays
always bring me down
what a town without pity can do
together we can make it baby
on the poor side of town
don’t it make your brown eyes blue
oh the loneliness of the long distance singer songwriter
the song remain the same

the song remains the same
it's the same old song
the song remains the same
love me love my dog
