Hotcha Girls - Sharpen Your Teeth
Lyrics:

Smells like autumn, smells like leaves you don't
Know that you'll rust and not belong so much
And then get left alone

Suck it up, take a ride and take a walk and
Don't you know that old folks homes
Smell so much like my own

The hotcha girls at the palisades,
Dime store keets
Pretty birds, pretty mouths

Mamas little truck stop rose,
Her dancy-feet, her happy laugh

We were dropping dimes on the ponies
In the cul de sac,
Casting shadows throwing sparks

We left our teeth marks on the barrel of the gun
The clipper ship across your chest

Turns out the pony only had one trick,
a wink for the truck stop boys

They learned it all from the polaroids

Smells like autumn, smells like leaves you don't
Know that you'll rust and not belong so much
And then get left alone

Suck it up, take a ride and take a walk and
Don't you know that old folks homes
Smell so much like my own

Time bends light,
Paints all peeling,
Wait outside,
Take four rights

The hotcha girls at the palisades,
Dime store keets
Pretty birds, pretty mouths

Glass eyes and in the wooden teeth.
The engines rusted in deep deep sleep,
It waits

The mail came from miles away,
The postal man was always late,
And we wait

Tight lipped with a big 'ol mouth,
The government workers all headed south
While it rained

Glassy eyes and the wooden teeth,
The engine rusted in deep deep sleep,
It waits,
It waits,
To awake
