lyrics

Spades, clubs, hearts and diamonds
I need spades, clubs, hearts and diamonds
Needle, thread, hearts, and clothes pins
Ash, flame, forgotten science
Anything to make your head spin
Two red stripes smash my head in
Two far gone souls who like the credit
Wind, leaves, inspiring dreams
Of funerals and broken teeth
Counters slide with cards and cartilage
Wiping down the staircase of fingertips...

(chorus)

So don't forget what made you that way
Don't forget what put you all in disarray

A mid aged woman in her aging house
Where the husband's late and the daughter's out, she’s out now and
She baked the conversation to a crisp
While the daughter screams about her lack of smudged red lips, red smudged lips
Cafe bustelo and ink stains on ice
Old friends show up with a nice surprise...

(chorus)

Don't forget what made you that way.
Don't forget what put you all in disarray

On a porch lighted by faces
Every word is a participant
Stories told of a live corpse we're chasing
Until someone drunkenly rants.
With limp connection,
To our loving mentions,
Of sisters and brothers alike.
I turn to you, me and my floorboards of youth
And whisper a well known secret i can't fight

(chorus)

Don't forget what made you that way.
Don't forget what put you all in disarray
Spades, clubs, hearts and diamonds
I need spades, clubs, hearts and diamonds
