Track Name: Big Bangs
Once there was nothing
then there was me.
I wasn't what I expected I would be.
I did the big bangs.
I did the head bang.
The rock&roll things.
Once there were sparks flown
in tritoned liberty.
Life started pouring
from abandoned parts of me.
We did the big bangs.
We did the head bang.
The rock&roll things
like sisters three.
It's the age of circumstance,
rock&roll won't take me back
now that all the stars are settled on the map.
It's the courage that I lack.
Rock&roll won't take me back
now that all the stars are settled on the map.
We did the big bangs.
We did the head bang.
The rock&roll things
like sisters three.
Once there was nothing
then there was me.
Track Name: Cream and Citrus
What the flattery man and what the come-ons?
It's old like me, it gets old with me.
I get feeling so bad each time you call.
You know time isn't cheap
and I can't sleep.
Your stare is slick like cream & citrus.
How'd we get to be so close?
You must know the right commitments
and I must not delude my own.
Now the time has come and gone
and look at all the ways we've won.
Now the time has come to go on
and look at all the ways we're alone.
Track Name: Secular
Way up above the city
where you asked me 'do geese see god?'
that's when I asked you backwards and it answered for itself.
Way up way up above me
I see the tundra in the sky.
Hanging alone from nothing
and fading with the night.
It's all shalala shalala shalala.
Track Name: Career Suicide
It's Friday night the good old way.
The money that I never made,
I drink it in.
It's pay night on the paler side.
I celebrate the greener pastures by
for whatever reason.
Got two feet for wandering
funny all they do is squander
and two hands to work with
dig a little hole and drop me in.
Friday night and hopes are high.
We may never know the other side.
It's only make-believe.
Track Name: Hit the Books
Two by two by two the future moves itself in a line
Two by two each little world a figment of mine
Oh to be gracious not to get tricked to compute
Oh how I slipped when they stopped telling me what to do
Snow on snow you Northern bird, your home of hell
Everything your parents gave you now you sell
Oh the degrees pushing down on my chest and my knees
Don't doubt it Isabella I'll be on your team
I want to feel the red sun rising in the morning
from underneath the snow
spilling from my window
I want to fly like geese fly early in the morning
No cell phone, no evidence of home
Ocean blue moves like I used to down the hall
Lucas lion heart stay true you've got it all
Track Name: Butter
I can socialize, look them in the eyes
but everybody's making me sad.
Guess I'll get back into bed.
I've got this city wrapped like a wedding band
but I can't be nobody's wife.
but I can please till I'm blue in the head.
Words hurt, I learned your name.
Things were never the same.
I'm never gonna fake ya.
Oh friend oh friend if I had to pick an end
I'd pick the one I know best,
I hope to see you Sunday.
Should've known, no, should've gone home
but I can't always be so wise,
plus you were always on my mind.
Words hurt, I learned your name.
Things were never the same.
I'm never gonna fake ya.
Oh friend oh friend if I had to pick an end
I'd pick the one I know best,
I hope to see you Sunday.
I can socialize, look them in the eyes
but everybody's making me sad.
Track Name: Finer Things
There goes another siren, I counted seven.
Him and her strolling, millenial heaven.
Black top badlands, you're the one with big plans
this I know.
Now you're on the front step, I made you a key set.
We're writing a book called 'the time we spend.'
While outside there're kids on the street
playing kick the can.
And as hopeless as I am,
I've come to understand the finer things of life
and as restless as I am,
I've come to understand the finer things of life.
There goes another siren, I really can't stand it.
Makes my head sick imagining sadness.
The pictures in my mind are scarier than life
sometimes I know.
And as hopeless as I am,
I've come to understand the finer things of life
and as restless as I am,
I've come to understand the finer things of life.
Track Name: The Band
Every bad mistake I make
I've made them all
Has got it's right place
I want to be alone
How come I miss the things I hate
Where have they gone?
I'm finally alone
The band broke up, I got stupid drunk
I loved you underneath,
Drove to Seneca lake
I used to have money
My friends used to look up to me
We fell asleep in the tub
I said I was giving up
Beat the band, own the plan,
Close the gaps with your eyes
Sometimes the people you love
don't love you right
Line them up, knock them down
I will always hurt myself
and so will everyone else
I've got no one to tell
So I learned how to lie for that short time
I didn't know myself. I had no one else
Got pulled over, chipped my shoulder
It was your birthday. I gave you tickets to the show
Have you ever held a good thing by the length of your arms?
Have you been so messed up you forget who you are?
Oh what fun the waterfall with hoodie and all
I could feel the weight of the water
through the back of the wall
And in just a year things can feel so weird
We were hell bent back then,
now I don't care
That isn't me now, Now I'm more found
I am the wise guy. I occasionally get by
You are you are you are you are right to let go
Could you could you could you be a stranger on the road?
