Track Name: Good Wife
Good Wife
_________
Big plans and he’s gonna get things done, and he
Tells his plans to everyone
Ya' better make one fast move kid or it’s gone, well cuz’
Big Ideas only stretch so long

Seventeen with no idea where to go, so he
Packed his care and headed to the road
Got lost in Denver for a while when he met her
He’s in love and he knows that for sure
She is everything to him and he’s everything to her
-
Twenty-three with a job, wife, and kid
He’s got happiness and that good enough for him
He still holds those Ideas in his head, he’s not
Standing still but he talks about them less
Just a matter of time I guess

She’s a good person a Good Wife as well
Patient and pretty and strong as hell
She knows his dreams and she’ll follow him to them, well cuz’
Her dreams are Love, Trust, Happiness, and Him.

Oh Love it’s everything you are
Give up everything you have, everything you want
Oh Love it’s everything you are
Give up everything you have, everything you want
Oh Love it’s everything you are

When The Sun Is Setting
______________________
Once in a while, when the sun is setting
With the cold, faucet water running
Hands are washed, from what you’ve been cutting
A Mother’s touch, things are finally feeling
Not the same, no there’s something different
A coming peace, like our hands have shifted
Dusty fumes, you said you felt but didn’t
Know about the reason, well

Follow me, through that Cedar Tree Grove
Climb the fence, by the teetered old stove
Hungry eyes, took in all that they chose
The water’s edge, this is all that we know
Bush and Pine, all know green with pleasure
Take my hand, take my younger brother
For all the world to see
For all the world to see
Track Name: Better Songs
Better Songs
____________
If I could write you a better song, like the ones I wrote when I was young

Stand up fast get the blood to your head
Dance those legs till you can barely stand
Let the daytime, light the way ‘till the nighttime’s end, now
Whatcha’ gonna’ do with the time you’re given
Spend a little here, waste a lot while missin’
Out on the road, nobody knows where you are

One of these day’s you’ll wind up alone
With a wife and a kid and a job and a home, now
Don’t really really bother with those kind of things
You only need me
-
Write you Better Songs
Like the ones I wrote when I was young
-
Shy from the Sun to escape the heat
Well it’s hard to sleep, with your scent on my sheets
The nightlife’s beat bleeds, into the morning's grief

When the throbbin' bursts through my skull
These lonely arms want a soul to hold
Spin you slowly float like a crow
-
Write you Better Songs
Like the ones I wrote when I was young
-
Everything I did wrong is coming down hard
I did my worst
Is anger ever really the better answer
I can do my best, if we all stay friends

Is it ever like the movies
Where we all stay young
Everything is perfect
We all have fun
Is it ever like the movies
Where we all stay young
And we look a little older
-
Write you Better Songs
Like the ones I wrote when I was young

We all had fun
When I was young
Track Name: Party In Your Honor
Party In Your Honor
_________________
Root do do doo, root do do do doo

I would take your hand and run with it
Like we were just invited
To the captains royal garden
For a Party In Your Honor

We’ll probably show up early
Talk politics while you worry
They call your name and you stand up
You bow, they clap, and you blush
-
Well everybody showed up for you
Maybe next time we can bring your family too
Just take my hand as we leave don’t worry about a thing
I’ll carry you all the way home
-
Let’s meet the mayor of the city
Ask him about society
He said, “kid listen, watcha’ using your brain for,
Just go out and waste some time on the dance floor”

Dim the lights down low and move up close to her
Just move your feet it’s closer to the answer
-
Well everybody showed up for you
Maybe next time we can bring your family too
Just take my hand as we leave don’t worry about a thing
I’ll carry you all the way home

Here we go!
Root do do doo, root do do do doo
Track Name: Poor Excuse For A Lover
Poor Excuse For A Lover
______________________
Oh I only need you for just an hour
After you can leave maybe take a shower
I am such a Poor Excuse For A Lover
Oh I just ignore you when it’s over

What if I could change
Or maybe I’m just stuck in my ways
What if I did change
Would I just revert someday

Oh I only need you when I’m lonely
Middle of the night when I take you slowly
And I whisper simply words, yeah you’re my one and only
I only say these words, to get you from your clothing.

What if I could change
Or maybe I’m just stuck in my ways
What if I did change
Would I just revert someday
Track Name: Oh, Bird
Oh, Bird
_______
Run around ‘till you find yourself a girl, and you
Settle down, yeah you, settle down
You’ve got everything figured out, so just
Calm down, try and sleep now
-
Oh no, I left you standing there
What a shame it was pouring rain
Oh no, I left you standing there
Perfect teeth on her, she’s on a street corner
Oh no, I left without a care
Burnin' bridges it was, a quick decision because
Oh no, I left you standing there
At least it’s better now
Yeah it’s better now
-
Oh, Bird would you sing me a song, but you’re
Gone now, nowhere to be found
Oh, Bird would ya' put me to sleep, make it
Better now, make it better now.
-
Oh no, I left you standing there
What a shame it was pouring rain
Oh no, I left you standing there
Perfect teeth on her, she’s on a street corner
Oh no, I left without a care
Burnin' bridges it was, a quick decision because
Oh no, I left you standing there
I left you standing there
-
Oh no, I left you standing there
What a shame it was pouring rain
I never thought to even run
I guess I missed the starting gun
All my options have gone away
I guess it’s all so safe to say
Whenever we try and find the truth, yeah
Whenever we win we really loose
-
Oh no, I left you standing there
What a shame it was pouring rain
Oh no, I left you standing there
Perfect teeth on her, she’s on a street corner
Oh no, I left without a care
Burnin' bridges it was, a quick decision because
Oh no, I left you standing there
I left you standing there
-
At least it’s better now
Yeah it’s better now
Track Name: Starting Gun
Starting Gun
___________
Maybe it’s good, yeah maybe it’s good, yeah maybe it’s good

I never run
Now I wait for the Starting Gun, the Starting Gun
Patiently paused
All the cheer team become the clause, no applause

Hard Opinions Often, and ya'
Never let them soften

Why would I stay
Must be something about each day, and the words we say/save
Why would I leave
Everything is free to me, free to me

Hard Opinions Often, and ya’
Never let them soften
-
I’m afraid of, oh what’s underneath the bed
I’m afraid of, I’m afraid of
I’m afraid of, all the words in my head, do you understand?
Yeah
I’m afraid that, I’ll become the living dead
I’m afraid that, I’m afraid that
I’m afraid that, all the words you might of said, will they haunt me ‘till I’m dead?
Do you understand?
-
I just pretend
My whole world is a free weekend, a free weekend
Poolside chair
We’ll soak in the sun, feel it everywhere, feel no care

Hard opinions often, and ya’
Never let them soften

Maybe I’m wrong
Nothing good ever last that long, soon it’s gone
Maybe I’m right
Either way, we’ll enjoy the night, enjoy the night

Hard opinions often, and ya’
Never let them soften
-
I’m afraid of, oh what’s underneath the bed
I’m afraid of, I’m afraid of
I’m afraid of, all the words in my head, do you understand?
Yeah
I’m afraid that, I’ll become the living dead
I’m afraid that, I’m afraid that
I’m afraid that, all the words you might of said, will they haunt me ‘till I’m dead?
Do you understand?
-
Maybe it’s good I’m all alone now
Maybe it’s good I’m on my own now
Maybe it’s good, yeah maybe it’s good, yeah maybe it’s good
Maybe it’s good, yeah maybe it’s good
Track Name: Time Alone
Time Alone
__________
Wash these colors from your skin
Holidays were always best, when you were just a kid
And the calls keep on coming from your family tree
And your voice sounds so happy on the answering machine

You need a vacation something to set you free
Cuz’ you waste all of your days sitting bored out on the street
Each night while you’re sleeping, well, you never really dream
You close your eyes for a second and soon it’s morning
-
You don’t like all the kids that you’re with, but
You don’t like yourself enough to be alone
Be alone
-
Watch the pavement as it rains
Little circles turn it dark as the summer sheds it’s shame
And the day dreams in your head make life seem so plain
You envision higher spirits, it doesn’t change a thing

Years from now, when you’ve left this hollow town
You return to find it spring time, bulbing tulips on the ground
And the sun heats the pavement ‘till it’s warm to the touch
You left her so fast, never cared for it much
-
All your friends they call you up, saying
“let’s have fun,” but you’re tired and you’ve had enough
-
Listen closely to the wind
Singing all the songs you wrote out on the front porch as a kid
And maybe it’s the many years that make you forget
This place is oh so lovely, this place is different

Think about that August night you got laid near the tree
All the times you got so high, yeah you could barely speak
All the girls you brought home, only to deceive
And the one you truly loved, she broke your heart in three
-
Maybe soon we will find our cells united
You always will fall asleep to television
Maybe it’s not you, maybe it’s me
Track Name: Everything Is Good
Everything Is Good
_________________
Good
Wrong
Real
Right

Everything Is Good, yeah Everything Is Good
But I feel like I should leave
Well I probably should, If I only could

Everything is wrong, yeah everything is wrong
Like a fist tight full of sand
Before long, it falls away it’s gone

And everything is real, yeah everything is real
Wash the makeup, lose the mask
Inside you feel, emotion you can’t steal

Maybe you were right, yeah you were probably right
I’ve been sleeping while awake
Well I decided you were right, yeah you were right
-
Is it gone
Most of my mind
Well I feel this way
Much of the time

Is it wrong
Is it right
It confuses me
Most every night

And I barely sleep
I never dream
I just lay and stare straight through the ceiling
Track Name: Tall Tales
Tall Tales
________
I’m alone
Sitting on the back porch of a party house, no ones home
I’m a stupid rule
No one follows me because I’m so uncool
What if I wast my life
Workin’ a dumb shit job, nine to five daily grind
Oh I wish you’d please
Disregard these things I’m better than I seem
-
I come on too strong
Would you tell me if I’m wrong?
Fall down next to me
And I’ll fill up your dreams
Have I waited too long, now
Are my chances gone?
Would they change your mind?
My Tall Tales of a better life
-
Oh when we first met
At that dance party I left my words un-said
You’re so beautiful
The way you move your feet would you fall away with me
I would show you love
Like a movie scene I’d steal your hand and run
Take you anywhere
If the world’s too small the moon is just right there
-
I come on too strong
Would you tell me if I’m wrong?
Fall down next to me
And I’ll fill up your dreams
Have I waited too long, now
Are my chances gone?
Would they change your mind?
My Tall Tales of a better life
Track Name: Easy
Easy
____
Wouldn’t it be Easy
To pack all my things
Jump on a plane, or train, or car
Don’t tell anyone

Now, wouldn’t it be sleazy
To leave in a day
New Years morning I’ll sail away
Would you remember me?
-
Yeah where would I end up?
Where would I end up?
-
Wouldn’t it be Easy
To forget everything
Clear out your mind and put memories aside
Oh maybe in time

Let’s make it Easy
Try and be happy
When it’s all deceiving just out of reach
Step closer to me
-
Yeah where would I end up?
Where would I end up?
-
On the outside of town
Oh, buried in the ground
On the Golden Gate
On the Empire State

Wouldn’t it be Easy, oh to just run away
Got your life in a suitcase, and you’re leaving today
Track Name: Fawn
Fawn
_____
I will lead like the doe leads the Fawn
Down to the sea to get a drink
And we taste with our tongues the bitter salt
And we still drink to try and quench our thirst

I just know it’s right
To make it all seem perfect
I just know it’s right
To make it all so clear
I just know it’s right
Fell like it’s worth it
Oh some other night
We can meet somewhere
We can meet somewhere

Oh some other night

I will lead like the doe lead the Fawn down to the sea, to get a blissful drink
And we taste with our tongues the bitter salt, and we still drink, try and quench out thirst

I just know it’s right
To make it all seem perfect
I just know it’s right
To make it all so clear
I just know it’s right
Fell like it’s worth it
Oh some other night
We can meet somewhere
Oh We can meet somewhere

While I’m thinking’ about a time machine
____________
Time Machine
____________

All of my friends they left me stranded
Nothing going on but thoughts in my head
Of finding a Time Machine
That somehow would carry me
Oh my thoughts of a Time Machine

Do you ever wonder if I’m just wasting
All of my days just strummin' on this six string
But I’ll sing my lungs out
‘Till the day I turn old
Oh just singin' about a Time Machine
-
Don’t you notice anything, how
Memories feel more, real when you’re dreaming
And don’t you notice anything, or is it everything?
I’m talkin’ about a Time Machine
-
Sever the handshake and turn your back to the
Cold steel knife of an et tu brute backstab
You lay there bleeding
The blood of your guilt
Oh just wishin’ for a Time Machine

Mother I have married someone I hate
Mother I have married someone I cannot stand
Even to talk to
What wrong did we do?
Oh I wish I had a Time Machine
-
Don’t you notice anything, how
Memories feel more, real when you’re dreaming
And don’t you notice anything, or is it everything?
I’m talkin’ about a Time Machine
______
Ocean
______
Tell me about the three weeks you spent back in Eden
I’ll bet you had fun as you should
And tell me about the summer that you spent down in Florida
I’ll bet you met everyone you could

No you don’t talk to anyone but yourself
With your feet in the Ocean and head laying up in the clouds
While my body lays over the Ocean

Tell me about your best friend when he was just a kid
Did he tell you all of his secrets
Tell me about your lover when she left you for another and
You wanted her to stay but she can’t

No you don’t talk like anyone but yourself
With your feet in the Ocean and head laying up in the clouds
While my body lays over the Ocean
Track Name: World War Me
World War Me
____________
All my heartache is leaving town
I put it on an airplane that got shot down
World War Me is happening

Love is an old book I never read
Written in a language I barely understand
World War me is happening

I gave you my heart while you were on vacation
And by mistake you left it at the railroad station
And the sun beat down, heating up the pavement
And it burned so black they all tried but couldn’t save it

Now I’m just heartless and hate everything
I’m cold and I’m callous and downright mean
Would you lend me your heart and maybe you’ll see
Oh the difference some happiness could do for me
-
World war three
Happens in my head
World War Me
I’m givin' up instead
Honestly
It’s happening
-
And I gave you my thoughts while you were out on business
They were all full of love and brimming with kindness
But the tax on your mind is ever relentless
And you say that you’re grateful for second opinions

Now you’re back home and things aren’t so easy
Yeah the house is a mess and the dishes are dirty
Oh we only have time for things that are greedy
No one told us that love life would ever be easy
-
World war three
Happens in my head
World War Me
I’m givin' up instead
Honestly
It’s happening
-
To you…
And you…

Call a medic I’m not feeling fine
I’ve got head trauma be it rain or shine
And the United Nation never seems to find the time
To intervene and stop the war inside my mind
Can it be…
-
World war three
Happens in my head
World War Me
Giving up instead
Honestly
It’s happening

It’s World War Me
Track Name: Warmer Weather
Warmer Weather
_______________
Oh we saw the sun
And it changed most everyone
Where the hills roll down and meet the sea
I breath and it’s fire to me

Oh we never really knew
What we were doing here
When the colors fell down from the trees
We burned most everything
-
You are leaving
From the only place that you’ve ever been
And I am calling
With the only words that could make you stay
But you don’t wanna’ stay
-
You don’t wanna’ stay

Oh we saw the sun
And it changed most everyone
And now I breath in the dust
And it colors my lungs
-
You are leaving
From the only place that you’ve ever been
And I am calling
With the only words that could make you stay
But you don’t wanna’ stay
-
You don’t wanna’ stay

I am leaving
From the only place that I’ve ever been
You are calling
With the only words that could make me stay
I don’t wanna' stay
