Lyrics

I am a woman of differing displeasures
Too many to carry around
All I need is two weeks and a whip, and I’ll prove to this town…
Bait your hook, put your heart on the line
Make it something that they will be inclined to when you
Repeat their names three times

Take a bass and a line and stupid rhyme
All the way to the mountains
To the two-teeth hard rock candy selling man in the mirror
With his couple of pairs and an ace too high
For dreaming about the open sky
It’s something I’d rather ignore in the meantime

Oh, this ain’t funny
It’s time to unload again
Put your shoes back in your mouth
Put your heart back on the line
Cause it’s bait honey, and bait is dead fish

Take the moon and the gloom and the hi-ho cherry-o’s
And mix them
Have some olives and greens and high school things for inspiration
Leaves in a bag, a three-letter word
Begins with T, is tea
It’s the spoon in the sugar jar and the caffeine

Oh, this ain’t funny
It’s time to unload again
Put your shoes back in your mouth
Put your heart back on the line
Cause it’s bait honey, and bait is dead fish

These walls so temporary
And these walls so historic, too
I’ve got three new songs and
A heart attack for you

Oh, this ain’t funny
It’s time to unload again
Put your shoes back in your mouth
Put your heart back on the line
Cause it’s bait honey, and bait is dead fish
