Faux Pony lyrics

When something's dirty
You got to make it come clean
America needs a hero
To put an end to its dying dream

I understood, I understood
Yeah, I understood

Me and Jodie Foster
We would have made a fine pair
If my aim had been straighter
Maybe I could have got somewhere

I understood, yeah, I understood
Hey, I understood ... yeah

You and me and our love
Could have gone into the stratosphere
Don't you know how hard it is
To ever find love anywhere

I understood, yeah, I understood
Hey, I'm sorry, I understood

Love you in that plaid dress

Golden Frog lyrics

You're a Hallmark card, shit plain and dumb
You're a Hallmark card, shit out of luck
And I don't need to apologize for anything I see
And I don't need to apologize when you just come right up to me
You're all mixed up - be something I could touch
You were weak

You're a circus ride making me lose my lunch
You're a circus ride making my head spin
And I don't need to redeem myself in anybody's eyes
I don't need to redeem myself for the sake of anybody's eyes
And if you really want to make a puppet talk,
Turn over my rock, watch me crawl
You were weak

And I don't need to redeem myself in anybody's eyes
I don't need to redeem myself for the sake of your cowardly lies
And if you really want it, give me a little bit
Make me say things I don't wanna say
You were weak

Mr. Foster's Shoes lyrics

She's just trying to find a place at the bar
She can't tell is there a gun to fire
She's checking in her pocket for, for something to make her feel good
She's checking in her pocket for a way out

She's just trying to find a friend to call
She can't seem to find anyone at all
She's checking in her pocket for, for something to make her feel good
She's checking in her pocket for a reason, a reason

She's checking in her pocket for, maybe a reason to stay
She's checking in her pocket for, maybe a reason to leave
She's just trying to find a friend to call
She can't seem to find anyone at all
She's just trying to find a safe place to go
She can't find anywhere safe to go
