Track Name: She Steps Lightly
The way she steps is only part of her plan.
She'll say she's sorry but she'll do it again.
You'll learn your lesson or you'll have it again.
Hold on, hold on, hold on and on.

Pariah, oh she's a pariah.
Pariah, she don't even know what she just done.

One that wants to show me,
Two that think they know me,
All three gonna change my mind.

She's exactly the type of person who will keep you up at night.
It takes far too many questions to know what she's like.
She will try to make it better, but she'll only end up crying.
Only one who gets it worse is the one who was right,

And she steps lightly.
It really frights me.
She walks up to me and I really don't mind.
She gives me something of another kind.

She steps lightly.
It really frights me, yeah.
She walks up to me and I really don't mind.
She gives me rhythms in a different time.
Track Name: Born To Live Here
Oh, now, sister, that jukebox hurts; don't put a dime in.
I wonder if you're still dancing, darling,
In worn Levi's and torn t-shirts,
And I in my corner, snarling.

Oh, how happy is Gnarled Fate,
Touring the states with his wife?
Taking that woman in every state,
Among the protected wildlife.

Here in the places I live,
Here in the places we live,
I was born to live here.

Wanted, wanted: out of this haze;
Last one is the hardest.
I will be left where the time decays;
the rest is rust & stardust.

Here in the places I live,
Here in the places we live,
All among the faces we live,
Here in the places I live,
I was born to live here;
I was born to love you.
