Hermit 03:55
I keep on thinking that I've Seen it all before I can't see through the shades It's getting hard for you To know me anymore I'm hiding from the days And I want to keep all of my privacy And keep it to myself A circle of friends in my memory I hope they're doing well I saw sunshine yesterday I looked to the sky Then I ran back inside I saw sunshine yesterday It blinded my eyes It made me realize That I'm not missing anything I'm drawing pictures of myself on the wall They're not that flattering I'm singing songs that I've never heard at all And singing out of key Please uncle, please show me What I should do now Please uncle, please show me Show me the way out I'm scraping all I can from the bottom of a jar So I don't have to leave I'm keeping shelter from a giant burning star That isn't kind to me

Serena Hides 02:44
Serena Hides behind a face That isn't really hers She always tries a different way To put time in reverse I wonder what it is that she's hiding from She's passed on all her friends When will her crying end? Her family wonders where she is. Is she happy feelin' lonely now? Serena Hides behind a mask That she paints on herself. The painted smile will never ask For undeserving wealth I wonder what it is that she's hiding from She puts a shell around her. And colors her lies. And then she'll start to wonder About the disguise. Will she ever find a way To find a way out?

Eating Pie 03:18
I can't complain I always try I know no other way I go against the grain And eat some pie I don't feel well today I don't feel need to compromise It's something I despise I think that I should never try Eating pie I'll change my mind three times a day It all happens against my will What must go down must always come up So I can search for my diet pill Everything I do is so overdone It has to be that way I want it all or else I want it none There are no shades of gray If I'm crying out to everyone I'm crying everyday

Sitting underneath the apple tree I'm wiping all the dirt right off my knees But I don't mind Mr. deer is looking down at me He says I've lost all of my dignity But I knew that long before he did Spent a long time breathing dust inside of me Mr. deer is becoming my enemy In a way, this has become my second home Not everyone has a tree of their own I'm sitting underneath the apple tree The sun is draining all my energy But I don't care I've been sittin' down for 13 years Father told me I need to change gears But I can't seem to get motivated I spent a long time breathing dust inside of me I'm sitting underneath the apple tree I'm painting pictures in my memory But I've lost my brush Sitting underneath the apple tree The sun is draining all my energy And I can't seem to get motivated

Flea Market 02:50
I don't want anything from the flea market Please don't pressure me I don't want to buy anything that is in front of me Why do you try to pawn on me your worst disease I have no need for sunburnt tapes of Spanish songs I cannot wear a pair of used brand new thongs I'm waiting for the chance I can go home So I can show someone how much I've grown

I can't hear a word you say When I push you away I'll read your mind My eyes pointed to the ground Ears shutting out the sound To save all I've done I know that I'm wrong I'd no sooner die than Admit that you're right I don't care what you think Cause I'm driven to drink it away I know that I'm wrong Please don't ask why I should put out the fire Oh, I'd rather be dead than Hear anything you said yesterday I'm ridin' my high horse In spite of his 4 broken legs He's had too much to drink And, now his memory's so vague He's havin' trouble gettin' Out of this starting gate I'm stuck in my stubborn ways Miserably livin' days With my anger With my selfish addiction To drug-induced fiction I am a stranger Now that I know that I'm wrong I'd no sooner die than admit that you're right I won't care what you think Cause I'm driven to drink it away

Shoe Gazer 03:41
I had something else to say But someone took it away And I, have a fear of being trampled down And being thrust into the underground I'm just a shoe gazer And I, am just a daydreamer There's not much for me to do Except stare right down at you And I, have a fear of being trampled down And being thrust into the underground I'm just a shoe gazer And I, am just a daydreamer I don't have anything to say But, I know I'm wise I'm searching for all the answers on the floor I don't hear all the words you say When you criticize I don't know what I should be listening for And I, am just a shoe gazer I think my shoe's untied I'm just a daydreamer My day turns into night I'm just a shoe gazer I think my shoe's untied I'm just a daydreamer

Betterman 03:38
I'm sorry for what I've done I know I've hurt everyone It's time for me to change And become a betterman I've lived too many lives I've told too many lies I hope I can change And become a betterman I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry I wish it was a different story I wish I was a betterman I live in the third degree It always tortures me I need to leave this place And become a betterman I'm searchin' for sympathy But, it never follows me It's time for me to change And become a betterman I said things that I wish that I never said Tired of sleeping inside my head When will things be as they were before? Woken up from a dream to find I've lost everything that I had Swept under a welcome mat Will they forgive me When I'm a betterman? I'm shedding my extra skin I'm taking the wrong medicine If I disappear now Am I a betterman?

I sat there on a school bench Sitting by myself like any other day When someone stood in front of me He looked at me with his pale brown eyes And started to talk with me And laugh with me And stand around me He said he could not understand Why I've been treated the way I always have And, we became the best of friends I waited all my life to meet someone who Would talk with me And laugh with me And stand around me I thought we would be friends 'Til the end of time I thought we would be friends 'Til the end of time Every time I saw his face It took me to a better place I've gone somewhere I've never been The feeling of having a friend Monday morning, I came back to school Thinking that everything was fine Then, I saw the empty desk Then, I was told that I had lost The only person who would talk to me And laugh with me And stand around me I thought we would be friends 'Til the end of time I thought we would be friends 'Til the end of time Every time I saw his face It took me to a better place I've gone somewhere I've never been The feeling of losing a friend

Shadow puppets on the wall Coming to me when I call Everyone thinks I'm insane My shadow puppets think the same But they are my friends And they don't follow senseless trends And they have a mind of their own They all give me company Now they’re contradicting me They can come and go as they please Shadow puppets on my wall Coming to me when I call People think that I'm insane My shadow puppets are to blame But, I'm startin' to find That they gain control of my mind So they can have a mind of their own They all seem to understand What I'm doing with my hands Waiting for a new command I like how it feels to be alone Shadow puppets on my wall Coming to me when I call Everyone thinks I'm insane My shadow puppets play the game But, they're dying to be And, if they want, I'll set them free So, they can have a life of their own If we go our separate ways I'll be lonely for the rest of my days And I will dream of yesterday

Envy 04:13
I see myself with nothing to do Nothing to show for the last year or two I don't have much left that I can prove I try not to dwell on past mistakes I try not to believe my life's been a waste But it comes to haunt me everyday Envy fills my mind Envy takes up all of my precious time It leaves me with nothing else I've lost my pride Jealousy has become part of my life And everyone else can tell Suffering regrets of things that I have done I don't feel content with second to me I feel like I let down everyone

Speedbump 03:57
Next to the sidewalk I have been laid up there for days And if I could walk I would walk away Does someone miss me? Does someone wonder where I've gone? Are they unhappy? They won't see me again My bones are broken But I need to get up and go My insides showing They don't need to show This situation seems to have put me in a hole I need attention They won't see me again I don't think I'll be going home today I'm not that healthy I don't imagine I look well I'm getting messy Everyone can tell I've been invaded There's something picking at my skin I am degrading They won't see me again I'm so ashamed now I'm well behaved now I think I'm tame now I've lost the game now I'm rearranged now I feel estranged now I need a change now I don't feel pain now

about

Recorded at a rustic, sunny, hillside ranch known as Prairie Sun Studios in Cotati, California, during a month long recording session in the spring of 1996. Each member of Bracket brought with them every musical instrument and noisemaker that he owned or could borrow. These included a vintage Wurlitzer upright piano, professionally “de-tuned” for a honky-tonk effect, a complete array of vintage guitar effects, various instruments and percussive toys, just to name a few.
Tracking was done on a Neve console, purchased from Pete Townsend’s Eel Studios in England. It was previously used to record landmark albums by Thin Lizzy, The Who, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Motorhead, The Damned and countless others. Session musicians were brought in, among them a string quartet, woodwinds, horn section, keyboardist, pedal steel player, and guest vocals.
Bracket had plenty of songs, imagination and time. Here’s what resulted while the record company wasn’t paying attention…
