Track Name: Get Back
If we made it through the winter
we can make it through the fall
Through all the smiling faces
and the long and narrow hall
Through elbows and shoulders
and knees and shins
There's a window in the corner
and the light's breaking in

Get back
Get back

We've made it this far
We've made it now
Our feet aren't tired
We're still behind the plough
Go ask your questions
if you want
'Cause everyone knows
and everyone don't

Get back
Get back

It's something I remember
I knew all along
It came on like a dream
like a long lost song
That I can only
tell you by whisper
That I will only
tell you by whisper

Get back
Get back
Track Name: Surface of Mars
It's clearer than ever,
the future will be bad.
We'll take opportunities
where they can be had.

The government chooses us
to shoot into space.
It's our job, girl,
to save the human race.

We'll be bumping and grindin'
on the red surface of Mars.
We'll lay down every night
and do our part.

You're afraid of the silence.
Well, so am I.
They said they'd write to us,
we should have known that they'd lie.

With no way home,
even if we wanted to go;
just this useless rocket ship
and a transmitter to shoot our coordinates.

Let's climb into that crater,
'cause this is Mars and there's nothing much else to do.
We're going to climb into that crater,
'cause this is Mars and there's nothing much else to do.
Yeah, me and my state-sponsored girlfriend,
we're going to climb into the crater,
'cause this is Mars and there's nothing much else to do.
Track Name: Conversation (Outside a Costume Party)
It was a beautiful night,
warm autumn air,
exactly the same as New York when I was there.

"Yeah, they're loading up air tanks
and shipping them in,
all so you can feel
that feeling again."

"Across bridges and borders
and highways and towns,
all for you, dear.
All for this feeling that you're feeling now..."

Listen, babe,
I know we're a thing, but don't start with me tonight.
Listen, babe,
I know we're a thing, but don't mess with me tonight.
You know I'm sensitive about the air.
Don't break my heart tonight.

And then the vampire said,
"If I could die, I'd happily come back as a cat.
Forget about poetry,
forget about love.
I'd be covered in fur
and I'd purr, I'd purr, and I'd purr!"

"Listen, babe,
I know all about your dreams, I can't handle them tonight.
Listen, babe,
I know we're a thing, but don't start with me tonight."

Listen, listen,
don't break my heart tonight.
Track Name: A Friend is Leaving for Europe
A friend is leaving for Europe.
Another friend and I
bought him gifts of Canadiana,
then took him to a pizza place for a good time.

Then we went to a bar with another friend.
There was a live band that was good.
We drank beer and stood
in the corner and watched.
A girl we went to high school with
came over and talked to the travelling friend.
She introduced herself to #2 and I,
"Hi, I'm Lisa,"
then she pointed to the travelling friend and said,
"We went to school together."
No shit.

I tried to make eye contact
with a waitress there
that I like,
but it didn't happen

Travelling friend wanted to leave
so we left,
and sat
in a shittier bar
with different people.

All true.
All true.
If you can believe it.
Track Name: Living Room #2
Tell me why
they don't keep you on the tv anymore
Tell me why
they won't let you in my living room anymore

I saw you on the street one time
You looked good, you looked classy and good
I felt too stupid to say anything
Plus, I couldn't remember your name

But I remembered it
as soon as you walked away
And I swear I watched you
on the tv every day

There was a time
when I thought I could be you
But that's not going to happen
for a variety of reasons

Tell me why
they don't keep you on the tv anymore
Tell me why
you don't hang out in my living room anymore
Track Name: Balmy Winter
candy canes and purple rain
open hearts, bloody veins
tire fire, chicken wire
30 sips of whiskey prior
down by law, Allen Ginsberg
sittin on the couch I kissed her
frothy lips, Harold Pinter
coming home to balmy winter
suburban war, foreign shore
another day to mourn Lenore
grim and grime, dandelion
heel and toe the railroad line
ain't no waste, these city lights
digging deep and looking live
moving on, moving slow
never wanted you to go
