Track Name: Carey Ann
It's good to see your face again.
You look the same as you did then.
When you came inside, I took your tapes.
You walked on by, I pulled the drapes.

But Carey Ann,
Did you need a man?
I was just a kid.
I knew the things you did.

I mentioned, Carey Ann,
I hope you come by when you can.
Like you did before,
You never come by anymore.

I dimmed the lights
above the den.
I got the VCR plugged in.
The movie blew,
I guess I said.
You pulled away, I kissed your head.

But Carey Ann,
Oh, Carey Ann
You weren't just a kid.
I knew the things you did.

I mentioned, Carey Ann,
I hope you come by when you can.
I tried to score,
You never came by anymore.
Oh Carey Ann,
I mentioned, Carey Ann,
I hope you come by when you can.

But we're older than
we were, Carey Ann
I was just a kid.
Forget the things I did.

I mentioned, Carey Ann,
I hope you come by when you can.
I missed your smile.
I haven't seen you in a while.
Oh Carey Ann.
Oh Carey Ann.
I mentioned, Carey Ann,
I hope you come by when you can.
Track Name: Half Lights, Half Sound
On the bill with a national act—
Airplay and a record contract.

Not a lot of dough, but killer exposure.
Back stage in the warm enclosure,
You gotta keep a lid on your composure.

The headliner spilled a drink on my shoes.
She said, Good times when you’re paying your dues.

Thought we’d leave the place in total ruins.
No one seems to notice what we’re doing.
Why’s she hanging by the soundboard stewing?

Oh, she told them
Half lights half sound

Manhattan had the industry heads.
Anyway, that’s what the management said.

Here’s a fellow that could make or break you.
Call me right away in case they take you.
Tough, you got a mix that wouldn’t wake you.

Oh, they told them
Half lights, half sound.

The headliner laid an egg in Boston.
They flipped the bill when we landed in Austin.
Damn shame when the opener’s lost in...

Half lights, half sound
Oh, we told them
Half lights, half sound...
Track Name: Ornament (Freshly Painted)
Shall we get an ornament?
Something that is beautiful to view.
Something that is innocent,
something to make everything brand new.

It may shine,
and spread colors on the wall.
It may chime,
and send breezes through the hall.

When this whole world is dark and tainted,
won't it be nice to have this ornament that's freshly painted?

So let's get this pretty thing.
You know, we'd better make it soon
'cause it won't be another day
before I'm howling at the moon.

You think it's time
we kept nice things around?
I think it's time--
we'll have to shop all over town.

When this whole world is dark and tainted,
won't it be nice to have this ornament that's freshly painted?

You know, we’ll have to find a hiding place.
You can’t expect the world to keep it safe.

Still dark and tainted,
freshly painted.
