Track Name: Cuz Fuck Em That's Why!
when the city disappears behind us
that's when we'll know that we've gone far enough
it's not the past we're runnin from
or even something now
it's the future that was closin in around us

we've driven this town into the ground
and taken all we can so how much more is left
you said that we're not comin back
you ain't got no regrets
but i can smell them on your breath

when we've burned all the bridges that we can
and no one's gonna miss us when we're gone
they'll never see our faces here again
cuz there's nothin in the world like movin on

we'll move on down to another town
and start it all again
maybe this is where we'll finally fuckin stay
we'll make some friends but in the end
they'll leave like all the rest
hell who needs friends like that anyways?

when we've burned all the bridges that we can
and no one's gonna miss us when we're gone
they'll never see our faces here again
cuz there's nothin in the world like movin on
Track Name: Misery Loves Company And Company Loves Beer
i fucked up pretty good again
but i've had my foot in my mouth since i don't know when
it's all going good and then
i sit down and have a drink
give myself some time to think
this ain't no fuckin way to live
some fuckin thing has gotta give
you're never coming home

i'm gonna sleep alone tonight
i'd rather pass out here than have this fight

i fucked up pretty good this time
but i'm out of here, i've made up my mind
and i swear to myself "for good this time"
i sit down and have a drink
give myself some time to think
this ain't no fuckin way to live
some fuckin thing has gotta give
you're never coming home

i'm gonna sleep alone tonight
i'd rather pass out here than have this fight
Track Name: Paranerd
why won't you leave me alone?
i know you've been following me
monitoring my phone
at least I think so
but I just can't be sure of what's reality
I'd like to step outside today
but you might be waiting for me
Goddamn
Why won't you just leave me be?

You might be waiting for me
OUT THERE

I just want you to go
Why don't you?
Track Name: Out To Sea
i'm 26 years old, and i'm sick of being told
to buy a house, find a wife, have a kid, and get a life
all i wanna do is sit and drink with you
and talk about what it meant when the star went out that night

this is the last stop before we get washed up
and washed out to sea
hold on as tight as you can
cuz i know this city will fuckin kill me

how much more can i take
how much more till i break into pieces
so run away, right away

maybe this'll be the day when i decide
not to crawl out of bed
someday my habits will catch me
"so grow up" - well, that's what they said

how much more can i take
how much more till i break into pieces
so run away, right away

no i wouldn't wanna have this city any other way
you know i wouldn't wanna leave here
till there's nothing left to say

this is the last stop before we get washed up
and washed out to sea
hold on as tight as you can
cuz i know this city will fuckin kill me

how much more can i take
how much more till i break into pieces
so run away, right away
Track Name: Books
in darkness we lie in this bed just before dawn
we just need enough sunlight for the curtains to be drawn
once there, man, we don't care if it's absolutely grey
we don't need a reason to stay in bed all day

we touch skin and settle in with the fiction we pursue
it's good to know that you're right here when the plot lines run askew
you're in spain or chicago and i'm in outer space
but with you lying next to me, well I don't want to leave this place

sunshine or thunder
will you meet me under

you and me and like The Left Hand Of Darkness
a novel by Ursula K Le Guin
I've read it several times before
and I'll read that shit again

even though you like contemporary stuff you don't think it's odd
when you see me reading a fantasy or Chariot Of The Gods
i WISH we came from aliens, cuz I bet they're pretty smart
when it comes to hooks, and reading books, and matters of the heart

sunshine or thunder
will you meet me under the covers?
Track Name: This Is Where The Fish Lives
the nights are going by so fast that i know we're losing track
the nights we lost to smokes and booze ain't never comin back
we promised not to go that far, we promised not to crack
but it's all too late and we're never going back

it was easier to do this when you said you didn't care
when i said i didn't notice, when i said it wasn't fair
i promised not to tell you that it wouldn't turn out right
there's nothing left to prove, there's nothing black and white

this time of night is when i can always see it in your eyes
smell it underneath your breath and hear it in your sighs
just one look from you can always cut me down to size
but it's all too late cuz i know where this heart lies

it was easier to do this when you said you didn't care
when i said i didn't notice, when i said it wasn't fair
i promised not to tell you that it wouldn't turn out right
there's nothing left to prove, there's nothing black and white

whoa-oh-oh
