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
