Track Name: Always You
Nobody’s even asking ‘bout you
Seems they’d soon forget
But I could never do that to you
They didn’t know you like I did
We roamed on phones and talked in hushed tones
Lest we be found out
But we were alone wishing someone noticed what we were about
Always true, always blue
Some seem to come to right and save us
Then only just to save themselves
Left out to dry in a white tornado
The midday sunlight at your back
Well it always blew, we always knew
I was born with a crook inside always trying to cheat fate
Before I know the mess I’ve made I’m halfway out of state
Distance is as distance does
Day to day just falls away
Confined to dreams, our concession prizes
For this glow that will not fade
Always due, always you
Track Name: Don't Go Mad
Sane is on the mend
Til then we’ll just pretend
Don’t go mad
Loved ones they do die
You’ll be the first to cry
It’s always a day away
You always end up ok
Don’t go mad
Crawling on your insides
Gnawing on your lip
Don’t go mad
Shaking from the unknown
Always feeling half grown
Don’t go mad
There’s something out there somewhere
With your burden you share
Don’t go mad
That owl hoots at my door
As I lay on the floor
Singin don’t go mad
Track Name: Born To Lose
Kicked from the bed to the couch to the floor
You’d think I could show myself the door
I ain’t looking to score no more
Just don’t know what for
Hanging by the minutes in this sentence chore
You always seem to need me when the black night comes
And you’re kind enough to feed me as the boob box hums
And if you’re thinking of breaking my heart in your arms tonight
Baby I was born to lose. It’d be alright
You fawn and then you yawn yeah and then just feign affection
Don’t you want the one you invited in?
Our hearts are legendary
Still the ills upend
Coughing on the change that we can’t spend
Taking forever waiting for you to take me in forever more
Lying on pins and needles like love’s last lonely whore
And if you’re thinking of breaking my heart in your arms tonight
Baby I was born to lose. It’d be alright
I can see tomorrow and that’s more than I could see today
So if you’re wishing to spare me sorrow
Just wish that wish away
And if you’re thinking of breaking my heart in your arms tonight
Baby I was born to lose. It’d be alright
Track Name: Beermerica
Feeding on foie and figs
Choking on cotes du rhone
A king of his own league going down the road alone
There’s a blonde wolf in the sky
He used to be my guide
Wonder if he’d know me now flash fried and frozen in my new grind
I’m stuck in music city with those Nashville blues again
Drive down the row congratulations signs
For “God Bless Beermerica”
My taste for flavor dying
You want variety?
Shit we got both types
Ye nuevo country and all the one forms of Jack White, I might
Stuck in music city with those Nashville blues again
Come for the sangin career
Stay for the wait job, so dear
Got a bible on my tailgate
In a pair of Daisy Dukes
Track Name: Help
Last time I went crazy I couldn’t even move
My eyes locked like lasers on my new favorite pair of shoes
Clothes piled to the ceiling and a sure sinking feeling
There’s just no easy way in dealing with the reeling
But I want to help you
I want to help you help me
I want to help you
I want to help you help me
Yeah and running it off
It fiends on you friend
But you’re so cunning and soft
And you mean the means to an end
And I want to help you
I want to help you help me
I want to help you
I want to help you help me
You think you don’t phase me
And at times I guess it’s true
Hence the expense of distance where ever apart we grew
But I’ve got nothing but love for you
Track Name: I Forget
I forget I’m the scene of a crime
I forget I’m in trouble all the time
I forget who what why when where
And I forget if I even care
Will you remember? Cuz I forget
I forget the world is on my shoulders
I forget it’s cold and getting colder
I forget that time is of the essence
And I forget to hold on to it tight
Will you remember? Cuz I forget
Forget the maze the runs our days
Forget the fights that ruins our nights
Forget the pains that don’t go away
Forget the poisonous words we say
Forget I ever brought it up
Forget not love
Forget not love
I remember what first caused us to be
And I remember you softly holding me
I remember all we’ve not done yet
And I’ll remember to try not to forget
Track Name: It
Put my love in your love and love it
Talk with me and bring it sweet relief
Put my love in your love and love it
Unfurl all the light that’s still beneath
It’s not but a line
And it’s not by design
It’s not some pending deal
It’s not a pill
All will be revealed
Just put my love in your love and love it
Fill my eyes with your sleeping face
Put my love in your love and love it
Fill this house just filled with empty space
The tune is in my head
But with no purpose
Leaves me for dead
There’s no reason for just to rhyme
So let me say this nothing at all
Track Name: Known Ya
Lortabs and whole milk with a twist of lime
At home with the lonely party just about supper time
You dropped by I didn’t know just what I would fix
Put your tongue down my throat and brought out your bag of tricks
But now you’re going to California
And this I understand
I’d only wanted to’ve known ya
Now I don’t think I can
Inside most nights you could see the ripple of my fire reflecting on the walls
Guess those nights I was seeing triple and feeling three times tall
Drove a long drunken way to see you
Told me bring it on despite the trip
But I found you sleeping, bleeding on your pillow
Like something straight out of Flaming Lips
But now you’re going to California
And this I understand
I’d only wanted to’ve known ya
You know me
Tragically romantic
Hopelessly lost in transit
But its kept my meat clean and my heart a dream
Like a thought I think I thunk
Saw you on the Bookface
Titled in a relationship with Head Case
Last I knew you told me to shoo
‘Cept only kindly like you do
But now you’re going to California
And this I understand
I’d only wanted to’ve known ya
Now I don’t think I can
Track Name: Pretty Things
You always called me your sweet prince
With sincerity and no pretense
We made a place and case for love
Such a shame where it ends up
I never thought it would be so hard to give my heart away
And all that you taught me has brought me this far
But now I stand alone
A blessed mess on my own
When all the pretty things are gone
Now it seems a race to be erased
From the chase to find another face
That lead me down dark and lonely halls
Where pictures on crooked walls
And the trinkets and love letters sealed by your kiss
They never lose their scent
Dream, seems a dream
That it came and then went
In the name of moving on
So wrong for just a song
When all the pretty things are gone
Track Name: Teller
I’m in love with my teller
Oh how can I tell her all I need lies behind that thick glass
I trust you with my money so please be my honey
And give me a piece of that ass
I’m a sucker for your suckers
We’d make great fff lovers
Give my lonelies a pass
I do my banking with you and I’m banking on you
To make this a bond that will last
I’m in love with my teller
My teller is Taylor
Like to tell her I’d never fail her
But I know that deep down ain’t true
I’m only human stumbling on fumes and watching my bummers accrue
But her smile takes my frown
Interest could compound
I like drawer pulling too
My fortune, you see, is less cash received
Pull me out of this pneumatic tube
I’m in love with my teller
You to and you fro right from in the front row
Still I can’t see if there’s any use
You give me that warm cool hotel feeling
With a touch of the downtown quick stop blues
My love don’t compute but she’s so cute in her suit
And lord knows those glasses don’t hurt
What’s say we scoot with what’s left of their loot
Get you into my Motley Crue shirt
I’m in love with my teller
Track Name: Sound
I got booze soothing the pain that it creates
It makes new takings for what the taking takes
And I don’t wanna go gone as long as there is song
Whispering that I’m not wrong
I got doomsday makings making in the makes
It’s a fool’s paradise, forsaking bread for cake
And I don’t wanna go home
My heart is where I roam
But somehow It’s fake
Dark and sky blue my heart it do survive
I thank all moments that be keeping me alive
And I’m gonna be around as long as there is sound
That moves me rightly up and down
Hoo bah
Some ole numb dumb fumbling finds me in the rough
But it’s in the rough that I grow sweetly tough
And I don’t ever wanna change
Even as I grow stranger strange
It’s just a constant rearrange
Hoo bah
Track Name: Radios
I remember waiting hours in my mama’s Vega
Just to hear that one Thomas Dolby hit
Now it’s hard to wait for buffering
Will I get the right torrents?!
To stream together all the Maroon 5 shit?!?!
Gone are the days of hearing something amazing
On mom’s radio
Or painting my old house after it became a preschool
For punishment at fifteen for wrecking a car
I listened on repeat to a tape of Physical Graffiti
Catching smoke breaks with my friend T Mabry
But gone are the days of hearing something amazing
On my sister’s radio
Hand job and Clapton Cocaine
Still Of The Night and Tawny Kitaen
Well I guess it’s no one’s fault
R.E.M. Catapult
Or the first time I heard Hot Legs
Got a tingle in my Toughskins
Right around the ripe old age of six
Or riding with my daddy listening to Merle Haggard
Shopping For Dresses / Going Where The Lonely Go
But gone are the days of hearing something amazing
On my diddy’s radio
Track Name: The Close
Sliding out of view and out of frame
No one ever stays the same
The rules are laid
I only obey
What can I say
This gone away
Sweet sad surge
Paved ways unpaved
Waves now go unwaved
Turning now to motion fade
Calm panic pounds like a soft parade
Heart engine failed, connection lost
This is a wash
If I could only be me and not what I am
If chaos could simply understand
That but one life, to take that to heart
And live in skin and only in end part
But peace ceased in me
Peace ceased in you
Now there’s that wall we run into
So in goes the close
Outcome, the loss
This is a wash
