Track Name: Satan
you’re not going to leave a mark
won’t find no fallen star
you’d be lucky to make it on the page
as some kind of cited source
little shot acting sore
never put a big shot in his place
so you’re just going to hide at home?
disconnect the phone?
like you’ve nothing left to say

like you’d better not come in
you’d better not

I’m not used to feeling small
not used to that at all
I hold those cards close to my chest
like when those kids ripped me off
when I was just trying to help ‘em out
and I let it get to my head
maybe I just can’t take it
I’ll go back to the gas station
and stealing beer out of the walk-in

you’d better not come in
you’d better not
ever be the one to come in

you’re not going to leave a mark
won’t find no fallen star
you’d be lucky to make it on the page
Track Name: Wouldn't Believe It
well I’ve heard rumors ‘bout the way I talk
about the stupid things that I do
well would you call it a rumor if
everybody knows it’s true?
and I’ve heard rumors that my vision’s blowing
like a picture frame in the wind
I wouldn’t believe it except I’m certain
seems like the state I’m in

you see me out walking with a certain type
just what else do you expect me to do?
well wouldn’t you jump in the water man
if somebody brought it to you?
how many distant souls can you fit up your nose?
tonight it seems like more than a few
the grass will be green over this entire scene
when you get back to what it is you’re supposed to do
Track Name: Eat It Dog
yeah I know I’m always feeling wound up
boy it’s hard to be this way
last night on the couch getting pretty worked up
but I know I’ll never change
alone in the weather I feel much better
just waiting for my luck to change

just remembered I was angry
I just remembered that you all owe it to me
and it’s nobody’s call but mine
what I do with my time
just remembered that I’m broke still
after the tax man, my beer fund and the studio bill
but if you’re going to hang me on the wall
go on and have a ball

yeah I know I’m always feeling wound up
boy it’s hard to be this way
last night on the couch getting pretty worked up
but I know I’ll never change

just remembered that I’m terrified
I might never get it done before I die
I might never do no good at all
never make it on the wall
I just remembered that I’m drunk still
but I spit in the face of a dollar bill
and if you’re going to hang me on the wall
it’s going to be my fault

yeah I know I’m always feeling wound up
boy it’s hard to be this way
last night on the couch getting pretty worked up
but I know I’ll never change
alone in the weather I feel much better
just waiting for my luck to change
yeah I’m always feeling wound up
boy it’s hard to be this way
Track Name: Other Side Of Town
couldn’t get up (so low)
and I was spitting what I ate up (gone spoiled)
now I can barely remember what it felt like to feel so low down
but you know I’m living in a different part of town

I quit going out (it’s alright)
finally laying down to get some sleep (at night)
and I can barely remember ever feeling so alone now
but you know I love living on this other side of town
yeah you know I love living on this other side of town

on the other side of town
there’s a new wind
blowing my direction
asking was it even
real at all?
but there’s that familiar feeling
that feeling so low down
which is strange ‘cause I’m living in a different part of town
on the other side

we worked it out yeah (it’s all good)
and everybody’s pulling for us baby (like they should)
and it sounds pretty stupid when I say it but I’m happy as a clam now
all because I’m living on the other side of town
just because I’m living on the other side of town
Track Name: Half A Life
in the moment that I noticed you
you seemed like the compass in a spinning room
and now to think we might just lay down and die?
I want to give it one more night

don't want to die in this hotel room
hungover, shaking, shitting blood just feeling ruined
when I’m scared like this I need that loving lie
I’ve been living half a life
been living half a life
hoping we’ll all live twice
I’ve been living half a life
been living half a life
hoping we’ll all live twice

you’re going to light up like a neon sign
when I finally get my attitude right
and I’m going to bring us both along like the bridge of a song
that I’ll never write
you’re going to light up like a neon sign
when I finally get my attitude right
and I’m going to bring us all along like the bridge of a song
that I’ll never write
that I’ll never write

I’ve been living half a life
been living half a life
hoping we’ll all live twice
I’ve been living half a life
been living half a life
hoping we’ll all live twice
Track Name: Break Up The Band
you gotta strike out
all your self doubt
but why’d you go and break up the band?
you’ll eat your words like
French fries
you're going to need another right hand man
why’d you go and break up the band?
oh why’d you go and break it up?

why don’t you go and get them cheap shots
you robot
shouldn’t you be staying at home?
some kind of dumb fight
might make your whole night
you’re probably better off on your own
shouldn’t you be staying at home?
why'd you go and break up the band?
Track Name: My Hold
come on give it up
everything that you was
ah everything so reckless and fun
I’m no longer like that
getting lost in a cab
feeling unmistakably spun

don’t you want my love?
don't you want the stars to move above
when I float on by?
don't you want my time?

come on give it up
everything that you loved
like laughing at the sun in your eyes
I’m no longer like that
feeling tired and sad
of always waking up to a fight

don’t you need my hold?
don't you need the ground to shift below
when I walk on by
don’t you want my time?
Track Name: I Don't Even Know What It Is
I don’t even know what it is

I don’t even know what it is
I don’t even know what it is man
I don’t want to give in to it
well someday you’re going to feel better if you give it a chance

and I, I’m going to give in to it (give it a good chance)
and you, you’re going to give in to it too (give it a good chance)
I, I’m going to give in to it (give it a good chance)
but I don’t even know what it is

I don’t even know what it is

I don’t even know what it is
I don’t even know what it is man
I don’t want to give in to it
someday you’re going to feel better if you give it a chance

I, I’m going to give in to it (give it a good chance)
and you, you’re going to give in to it to (give it a good chance)
well I, I’m going to give in to it (give it a good chance)
but I don’t even know what it is

I don’t even know what it is
Track Name: You Can Have Her
you can have her
the whole world seems to love her
well she ain’t going anywhere
so come on by and take her

where to go from here?
I guess it doesn’t matter
where to go from here?
I guess it doesn’t matter

you won’t burn me
seems like the whole world wants a piece of meat
I just remembered I’m my own man
why am I down on my goddamn knees?

where to go from here
now that I’ve been set free?
where to go from here
now that I’ve been cut free?

it's not gunna be no walk in the park
might be so dark that I cannot see
you can have her

did I stutter?
I said all ya’ll could have her
but you and I both know
she’s not a thing to give away or gather

and where to go from here?
I guess it doesn’t matter
where to go from here?
I guess it doesn’t matter
Track Name: Staring At The Sun
early in the morning
staring at the sun
I’m so good at killing my brain

I don’t need anybody anymore
to tell me when I’m done
I’m too good at killing my brain
