Track Name: Gonzo
it was told me by the cosmic fish
I'm a citizen of outer space
chronicling the death of the American dream
'til she put a bullet in my face

don't laugh at me 'til you see tomorrow
don't laugh at fear 'til you feel the sorrow
I couldn't steal so I had to borrow
from Gonzo

it was told to me by the universe
you're a citizen of planet earth
swimming in the sea of our relentless dreams
'til the atom bomb can give them birth

(chorus)

it was told me by the cosmic fish
I'm a citizen of outer space
chronicling the death of the American dream
'til she put a bullet in my face
Track Name: Greensboro Woman
Greensboro woman don't you smile on me
I do not feel like being comforted
and anyway I'll be home soon
for once someone's waiting there
and if you don't mind I'll just think on her instead

your face she's a picture, babe
but pictures ain't what I crave
I do not feel this way most generally
I just put a thousand miles
between me and where my thoughts do lie
and I thank you kindly, babe
to kindly let me be

(chorus)

your car she's smooth and fast
oh babe, your bourbon's fine
but you ain't feeling free and clear today
Texas loving laying on your mind
you couldn't do me right, babe
spinning around your grave

Greensboro woman don't you smile on me
I do not feel like being comforted
and anyway I'll be home soon
for once someone's waiting there
and in the meantime you just think on him instead

(chorus)
Track Name: La Muerta de las Cucarachas
when you cut through my skin
pushed the chemicals in
my nerves turned to glue

and then you pierced through my hands
poured the molten steel sins
I felt sorry for you

again you crawl through my dreams
the price of sane is steep
and the chemicals I give to you

and friends don't pray for peace
the price of peace is steep
and my children need new shoes

la muerta de las cucarachas
la muerta todas las cucarachas
fumamos todas las cucarachas
para San Martin de Porres

time can't tell us what's right
we do our best to survive
naked in the dark

and fire can melt the whites of your eyes
when you're alone in the night
forsaken by your God

(chorus)

life relies on death
and death depends on sex
and it's hard to tell them apart

and I stopped dying for you
started living for me
and I'm sick of your bleeding heart

(chorus)
