Track Name: We Can't Get Enough of the Was
We can’t get enough of the was
We can’t get enough of the then
Cuz then was then

Why should I be something new when I have you
Longingly cheering for the me who was me
I wish I could be you so I could see
What you see, isn’t it pretty?
Now is so dreary

We can’t get enough of the was
We can’t get enough of the then
Cuz then was then

I will be the was who was
You can be the then that was then
Pretend, pretend


I just can’t pretend that I’d rather be here
I can’t pretend that the then wasn’t more fun
Wasn’t it more fun
Wasn’t it more fun
I’ll just give in
I’ll just give in
And find myself a soft pillow
And dream the dreams that have been dreamed
Track Name: The Garden
In the garden, from my window
You can see their love bloom
It is rotten it is poison
Fills my heart with gloom

I will stop them I will ruin
Everything they grow
They are rotten they are poison,
My thoughts they grow and grow

Just like that I can weed out, stomp down
Just like that I can scorch the ground

I am with them every day now
But they don’t know that I know
I can see them as they pretend
Try to hide their glowy glow


Just like that I am your best best friend
Just like that I am bitter to the end

I’ll plant my poison
I’ll plant my poison
Track Name: Rhode Island Ghosts
Over the Ramtail bridge down by the River
Lived a woman named Dolly Cole
She’s said to be seen at night in the woods dressed in white
Just another Rhode Island ghost

Poor Nelly Vaughn no grass grows by her gravestone
Where she’s waiting and watching for you
Perfectly pleasant if you come to visit
Just another Rhode Island ghost

Zelma lived all alone in an old farmhouse
Frank had died years ago
He’d scare away teens who'd drive by late at night to see the headless man chase them with a gun
Just another Rhode Island ghost

Mercy Brown's grave smells of Roses and perfume if you’re coming to her with a prayer —
She died as a teen, thought a vampire
They would never let her rest in peace
Just another Rhode Island ghost
Just another Rhode Island ghost
Just another Rhode Island ghost
Track Name: Great Day in Rhode Island
Driving home to Rhode Island
No surprise to find
Home is a friend that is lying
No friend of mind —


Now that I’ve been forsaken
No contenders to weigh in
Lonely are hearts and they’re breaking
Away —

Guess we all just want someone to love
Maybe we all just want someone to love

Grab your keys to the wagon
Any road with no baggage
How did I get to this dead end
Again?

Guess we all just want someone to love
Maybe we all just need someone to love

And then Chris met Jefferson
Who, while shoveling snow, wrote a song for Chris
About her home state of Rhode Island
And Chris began to think differently
For they were in love
And so, on this day, driving into Providence,
Chris sang out:

It’s a great day in Rhode Island!
A great day in Rhode Island!
Track Name: Joan Anderman
Well I’m not known to be shy
I’ll tell you the who, what & why
But I was taken by surprise
The night Joan Anderman got me high

I said a lot and I said it wrong
Her marijuana was too strong
She said, Just give it a little try
That’s how Joan Anderman got me high

Well I don’t like feeling out of control
And I don’t like being that guy who can’t stop smiling
And I don’t like hearing that nice guys finish last,
That the past is in the past,
And that I should make my music for free and be happy
Well you can suck my dick
And my clit

But back to Joan Anderman getting me high
Dan Zedek heard a diatribe
But I was just giving a pep-talk
And then my mouth tasted like chalk

I’d taken a Philadelphia drag
Chris Toppin raised a red flag
She laughed so hard she started to cry
The night Joan Anderman got me high
Track Name: Rhode Island
It’s the smallest state in the Union but one of the most densely populated —
It’s not really an island but it was first founded as one —
It was the first colony to declare independence from Britain and my baby’s from there —

So let’s go to Rhode Island baby
That’s where you’re from
You can take me around to the places
You left when you were young

Let’s find a good bar my love
Open up the past
Talk about how grateful we are
We found each other at last

There was a small nuclear explosion there in the ’60s —
They make lots of toys in Pawtucket but for some reason cap guns are illegal —
H.P. Lovecraft, Ruth Buzzi & Chris Toppin are from there —

So let’s go to Rhode Island baby
It just makes sense
I’m your Roger Williams baby,
And you’re my providence

Let’s party in the trailer park
Where you grew up
We’ll shower the place with our love,
Have ’em drinking from our loving cup

There was Chalk Man always coming around with his dog and doling out homemade chalk to the kiddies —
There was the Trojan Tent where Miss B. danced suggestively to “Brick House” —
Marilyn Chambers, Cormac McCarthy, and Tanya Donelly are from there -

Let’s go to Rhode Island baby
Cianci was mayor
Never lost an election
But went to jail and left his hair

Let’s go to Rhode Island baby
It’s where you’re from
You can take me around to the places
You left when you were young
