USA Capable


The version of U.S.A. Capable on the single is identical to that on the full length album.

U.S.A. Capable

We got the message coming down the line,
they needed love on demand,
they had a master plan.
They made a little proposition,
we signed the lease that night,
we had a master plan.
We got married in a fever,
just as hot as you please
and just as hot as you please,
there's no patience
when you're young,
just throw your hands in the air and see what comes undone.

But vows and promises
were never ours to keep,
they dog you baby now and
U.S.A. capable crashpad mattress heroes find their way back home.

Wake up sleepyhead,
we gotta get out of bed,
this is no good.
We took off running just as fast as we could,
we had to lie through our teeth,
no time for coffee.
Front door good-bye good luck
French kisses, French kisses.
It's so delicious
when you're young,
just throw your hands in the air and see what comes undone.

Sensory overload
for the greatest story ever told,
another ten hour episode of
U.S.A. capable crashpad mattress heroes get the show on the road,
U.S.A. capable crashpad mattress heroes find their way back home.

We got the last of the great
reputations in bed,
we got ahead of the pack,
outran the angel of death,
we bring the gift of allure,
we bring it straight from the sewer,
we're holding out for the cure
so we can roll on,
we can roll on.
U.S.A. capable crashpad mattress heroes get the show on the road,
U.S.A. capable crashpad mattress heroes find their way back home,

dream a little dream
and then it's wake up shake the demons off,
and yet we're hardly grown.
U.S.A. capable crashpad mattress heroes.

Crystal Keg People

Now you're going to hear the tale
of how I was made in a hotel bed
pretty past france?
By the time I was freed into the land of the beans
I was a man of means, a man of means.
Jack-knifing semi's took their toll
but here I am still as the good lord wills.
Lost in the menthol on my way back home
crystal keg people take me into their fold.

I will guard the pass until the sherif's out of sight
and I will guard the pass until all the scavanger grips upon the way back home
and crystal keg people get the man on the phone.
Green eyed girls get on their flip-n-talk phones
to lie to all the ?? they know.
Lost in the menthol at the foot of the hill crystal keg people gonna get their fill.
Crystal keg people gonna get their fill.

And you know they will.
They're trained to go too far
and they're not aware of what they are.
They're not aware how fucked they are.

And they're not aware how fine they are
they're not aware how fine they are
and they're not aware how close they are to death on the register
If we're out of gas then we surely must die
die along the trail to the side of the hill
back at the lexus the riches run dry
no matter how much ?? they upset us.
Now we're lost in the menthol at the end of the night
crystal keg people run away uptight.
Lost in the menthol at the end of the night
crystal keg people run away uptight.
