Track Name: Another Lover
Another lover will dance between my arms
For just a minuet and then they’re gone
A lazy Christian, not wicked nor devine
We’re staring at the ceiling again
I don’t know bout you
But the things that we do
Are always silhouettes and never the truth
I don’t know bout you
But I’m dead on the rail and I’m riding my problems
Another lover sleeps deep beneath my arms
For just a minute here and then they’re gone
A lazy mission, the friction was divine
Can’t help but wonder if I’m living a lie
I don’t know bout you
But the things that we do
Are always fantasies we never refuse
I don’t know bout you
But my head’s on the rail and I’m riding my problems
I don’t wanna sit, I don’t wanna stand
I don’t wanna argue, I don’t want you to laugh
I don’t want a cut, I don’t wanna bleed
I don’t want a bandage, I don’t want a new sleeve
I don’t wanna ask, I don’t wanna plead
I don’t wanna beg you, I don’t want you to leave
Do you have to ask? Do you have to know?
That I’m riding my problems
I don’t know bout you but the things that we do
Are always fractions always pieces of truth
I don’t know bout you
But I’m dead on the rail, dead gone
They’ll find me dead on the rail, dead gone
They found me dead on the rail, dead wrong
Track Name: It's A Shame
It’s a shame that you can’t get over it
It’s a shame, such a beautiful start
It’s a game, a life spent singing alone in the dark
There’s a tiny splinter in your heart
It’s a shame, such a pretty story
It’s a shame that it all fell apart
It’s a pain, but life ain’t easy, no walk in the park
There’s a tiny splinter in your heart
Well maybe you don’t know what’s wrong
Pretty baby, you don’t know what you’ve done
You done me wrong, we had it all
But then you went and tore it all up
We were young, dumb and in love
Track Name: Fool's Gold
We can dream, we can dream, we can cause us a scene
We can call the cops and run through the park
But lord knows that ain’t a start for a night like tonight
Or we can hide, we can hide, we can keep it inside
We can cauterize the rims of our hearts
But lord knows that ain’t a start for night, it ain’t right
I found gold, just the foolish kind, and it’s mine
We can dream, we can dream, we can draw up a scene
Where we hang out on a roof in the dark
And pull all the lyrics apart on a night like tonight
Or we can hide, we can hide, we can keep it inside
We can cauterize the rims of our hearts
But lord knows that ain’t a start for night, it ain’t right
I found gold, just the foolish kind, and it’s mine
Track Name: I Believe You
When you look at me I die
I freeze up inside and start to cry
I wish I knew you had a plan
You were never on the streets
But always on the magazine stands
I guess I never really tried
I guess I should of know that you weren’t mine
I guess it was a bit naïve
To think that you would wait around
While I was out impressing me
Well I believe you cause I know that it’s true
Yes I believe you, there’s not a thing I can do
I don’t need you, I’m on my own
I know you got a new dress
But I know what lies beneath it
I saw you slipping out again
I saw you reaching out for someone’s hand
I saw you climbing up the wall
I don’t know what I thought you’d call
We barely even talk at all
Now you’re drifting in your car
Painting melodies that fall apart
You threw a wrench into the gears
When you left me in the belly of the beast
And finally disappeared
I know you got a new dress
And I think that you should keep it
Track Name: Bargain
Baby you’re a bargain, a deal
You’re a steal, you’re a catch
And you caught me at my best
Looking exactly like the rest
Of the fools in this room
Tell me what are we trying to do
I’m confused, how bout you?
Well lately I’ve been bartering deals
Spin the wheel, take the test
And you never know what’s next
Looking exactly like the rest
Of the fools in this room
Tell me what are we trying to do
I’m confused, and subdued
I don’t mind being used
Track Name: Used To Wanna
I used to wanna dance, now I don’t
I used to wanna sing back our song
I used to wanna lie in your arms
But baby you’re gone
I used to wanna dance to forget
I used to wanna live life, no regrets
Used to wanna fight to be strong
I guess I was wrong
Yeah I guess it takes a time clock
We’re punching in and out of love
To finally get what you what
Used to wanna dance to the rain
Used to wanna play those silly games
Used to wanna lie to belong
I guess I’ll move on
Used to wanna dance like the rest
Used to wanna place those silly bets
Used to wanna fight it alone
But nobody’s home
Yeah I guess it takes a time clock
We’re punching in and out of love
Where’d you get the back luck?
To finally get what you want
Track Name: Sweet June
Sweet June, they’ll never pull me out alive
Sweet June, you’ll never find me by your side
Cause someone pushed me in the river
Secretly delivered a shove
Sweet June, you’ll never find me on the run
Sweet June, I always knew you weren’t the one
Cause someone pushed me in the river
Secretly delivered a shove
Yes they threw me in the ocean
Showing no devotion again
Track Name: Soaking
My eyes have been soaking in gasoline
So toss me a match and we’ll strike up a scene
Watch it as it glows, watch it explode
Yes I’ve been around, I’ve been drifting out
So throw me a fire and we’ll stare
As the smoke all pours out
We’ll watch it arouse incompletely
Tied up so neatly, we all fall apart
Track Name: Time Is A Lie
Time is a lie and you know it
We fight to arrive but we’re not there
There’s a light in your eyes if you want it
Just open ‘em wide and let me stare
I’m not afraid to die
I only worry about staying alive
I’m alright, just fine
Time is a lie and you know it
We fight to arrive but never there
Well I’m obliged to surmise that you want it
I’m not afraid to die
I only worry about staying alive
I’m alright, just fine
Track Name: You Broke It
You broke it, then you bought it
You stole nothing but you took it all
No one’s perfect but the surface is deceiving
Watch the seasons start to fall
You’re alive, you’re a beast
Do your time, get released
And come back home on your own
And rescue me
I’m excited, you’re invited
To see what you’ve done
Out on the run from someone
See what you become
You broke it
Track Name: Got Lost
Steered off, corner of the path while hiking
Got lost, you never had my back
Stood past, a very scary tree of lightning
And ran back so I could
Tell you all the things I never would
Out loud
We fought on top of the Barefoot Mountains
Don’t rest, don’t ever fall asleep
We reached the bottom of the natural fountains
And fell off of the edge
Found sites you never thought we would
Out there
You never dreamed we’d find that ocean
You always thought the world was square
But everything you know is a part of you
Je m’appelle Pierre Chien et tu?
On y va! Un, deux, trois, and c’est la vie
Don’t you remember?
We almost died
Track Name: Wishing Well
Hold me in a wishing well
Throw me in the water I’ll go out on a spell
I’ll count the new bruise and start an argument
Blame it on the weather and the audience
You’re just a fool, tool for the modern man
How can’t you expect me to laugh?
It’s old news
My brother threw me in a wishing well
My momma got sick and went out on a spell
About the who’s who in the government
And how your father should of ran for president
But he’s a fool, tool for the modern man
How can’t you expect me to laugh?
It’s old news
But who knew?
Goodbye, honestly I wish you well
I hope you find somebody who’ll treat you well
I hope your new bruise will finally come to pass
How can’t you expect me to laugh?
It’s old news
But who knew?
