Track Name: Minor Key
You always played in the minor key but baby everybody knows that you resolve it every time
You always wrote in the minor key but lately it's the only way for you to say you love me

But don't get me wrong.
It turns me on
And although you put me down, you get me every time

You always played in the minor key but lately you've changed your tune
Does this mean you've changed too?
I hope not. I liked your bitter melancholy.

Though you get me down, I feel fine.
It's hard to keep in time.
It feels so sublime.
Track Name: What A Shame to Wait Til You're Dead
If I was the devil I'd say to you
Listen to yourself and you will know what to do
If you want a way out I can show you how
Trust in yourself and I will show you how

If I was the devil I'd say to you
Listen to yourself and you will know what to do
If you want a way out I can show you how
Trust in yourself and come closer now

Roll those eyes up to heaven and back inside your head
Don't forget to remember just what you said to me
You said I want a way out

What a shame to wait til you're dead
Track Name: Hospice Harpist
Spent my savings on cigarettes
I've opened up my eyes to let's get on with it
This hotel breakfast sits uneasy in my body
Hoverfly is skirting my periphery reminding me
There's so much else left to see
The details and the subtleties

I don't need no hospice harpist
I've been slippin' snakeoil in my tea
I don't need no hospice harpist
I've been sippin' snakeoil through my teeth

Stray cat prowess inherent confident status
Nursing wounds with a tongue like daggers
Regal with her graceful haggard
Finally she's found a home
In the rarity of sugar sun
With room to roam and room to run

She said I don't need to hospice harpist
I've been slippin' snake oil in my tea
I don't need no hospice harpist
I've been sippin' snake oil through my teeth

I don't need no hospice harpist
But I sure would like to end this (on a sweet note)
Track Name: Dark Deal
I made a dark deal
Traded it all with my eyes closed
I wanted
Didn't know the sun was at my back

I made a dark deal
I cut my chances when I have the chance
Wanted to steal away
It was a dark deal

When this world ends that's when I can make amends with all who I have lent my life to
When this world ends that's when I can make amends to all who I have lent my time to

Let a dream die to make time for the wild unknown
Holding on tight to the old fights before you've grown
