Pick up the phone, you're not alone The signs are clear, my dear and the talk so stiff Ill-advised, apologize Recognize when the talk goes stiff On a roll the blackest soul Out of control Have to deal with it Behind a stare extraordinare Without a care as the talk goes stiff State the case a poker face What a waste Hear the talk go stiff Deepest sighs a chest that rise No money buys as the cost goes stiff Nothing new not a change misplaced words there's no sense in it Playing games on display but who's to say? When the talk goes stiff Please display your usefulness

For Today 04:01
Everyone takes advantage Everyone wants it all A million people speak in Spanish sit & wait for the call A forest full of trees that fall & who's the fairest of them all? The cotton's picked let's have a ball, they say. It's just for today. I saw your face I couldn't stop it Burned my brain without delay Some stars are born and some are prophets/profits It's just the world we have today (Chorus) Half a bottle brown & empty A language only for today My fill of wisdom warm & plenty I only wish that I could stay
3.
So Defined 04:44
Do you ever take the time to ask yourself reasons why? We erase you and I all the pieces that we can't define So defined We're so defined Keep it all under control all the time all the time Is it random? Or just surprise? Can the lock be picked behind this sad disguise? Supernatural! Mystify! We order from a menu we despise. (Chorus) Devolution, so they say No one looking past the consequence of today Nothing hidden no one's blind Choosing what to see with rose-tinted eye
4.
Every step you take's a mystery All the things you gave away Never thought you'd be this close to me Never thought I'd want to stay People dance inside their own parade Selfish 2-steps awkwardly Think that there must be a better way No one could take that thought from me You're so fine Doing time Leave me stranded on the line And if this song becomes a history And if my face just fades away Years of bliss with little vacancy Turned my hair from blonde to gray
5.
Small town renegades Girls selling lemonades Every drunk can't have his drink Calling us criminal The size is minimal We pay to be taught how to think Lying in the grass Slowly holding hands Making jokes about the moon Addicted to your laugh Write your epitaph All this is over far too soon It's just a holiday It's just a holiday Please give me one more day in June Taking photographs Meet you after class Get away from all this gloom As we create this path With different charts and graphs Always a pleasant afternoon
6.
Everybody got their own ideas about it... People talking, saying nothing, just... echoing Maybe someone need to close the curtain tightly Change the record, pull the trigger, and kill this thing Down this road 1,000,000x No one wants to hear you scream Welcome to the anti anti machine uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, uh huh Opinions: here, they all get seen as valid Think you're heavy but you're a featherweight uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, uh huh
7.
Casual Way 03:35
Rolling along your hair is flowing The breeze is high and so am I, it seems It takes control, this sudden remedy My mind is blown, the sea is here with me Staring at the sun Looking in your casual way A life that's just for fun Living in your casual way Sometimes we talk about forever Some time we just don't talk at all The heat is fine, I like the weather No compromise, you miss the fall Is that all?
8.
Fiend Fiend Fiend Fiend You holy roller I'm a 1 in 10 I make you breakfast Then I do it again I'll add the water Yeah you pour the wine You know I blow I show you a good time Fiend I'm a fiend for your soul Fiend I'm a fiend for your soul Oh holy roller Get your lovin' vein Don't fight the pleasure Yea you ain't got pain
9.
In other times, another place We didn't have to shave our face In the mines everyday From the bar stool to the grave There was no time, no time to spare Take no razors to our hair Different days long ago Perhaps no one let you know? PBR! PBR! It's what you drink. It's what you are! Then you say 'I've got my ways Things may change I stay the same It's my choice to look this way Another can to end the day' Full of strife at 25 What does it mean to be alive? The only war I've ever fought I've got it all still not a lot And so I sit this screen is here After work I'll have a beer Another day of working late In a world I can't relate
10.
Got a chrome-plated heart ain't a bucket of bolts Runs strong like an ox but only for adults Takes turns like a champ always makes the scene Keeps the white-walls white & the sidewells clean Never gives any sass always turns on Takes the road like a boss from sunset 'til dawn There is something to be said for the selfless way Never calls me a name always does what I say Like the girl of my dreams Like the girl of my dreams Always goes to the place where I wanna go We never get there fast we always take it slow Doesn't question my thought never has any doubt Sits in idle whisper doesn't ever shout All the girls look & stare because they know the score She's my little Christine she's my dirty little whore Responds to my every command & touch Takes control when I can't if I drink too much Rides the roads like they're hers doesn't care what they say And I roll down her sides on a sunny day There's no one that can get the way it makes me feel Every time that I get behind the steering wheel It's the best thing I own It's the one thing I got All the others leave me cold but she revs so hot
11.
People living, no intution Needing something to do Get the news from a television Never look for the truth but do you? Do you? Looking straight in a mirror lying Like it's just what you do Full of laugh while there's people dying Tell me, now what does that make you? What does that make you? 17 hundred million voices Yet they all got it wrong Ask me if I'm paying attention And I'll sing you this song I'll sing you this song
12.
Not a you song Not a me song Not a 'life has guarantees' song But to hold on, hold on Stay strong with the cold dawn It's peculiar what we do here all the words that we mishear, dear but to hold on hold on Stay strong with the new dawn Salty hideaway Testing waters Alma maters Clapping hands for sons & daughters In the jet stream What does it mean? Moving faster than a light beam It's peculiar what we say here Words that cut sharp like a razor No one owns you lest they shone through all the layers that define you
13.
Just wrote this love song In hopes it won't be long until you stop & think about it again It seems I'm nervous it just won't serve this narrative of things I think you said In all the times we sat around All the things to figure out The whispers of a long forgotten friend In all the times with misery I'd always wished & hoped you'd be the one thing that's with me 'til the end Just wrote this love song Maybe I'm not as strong as I used to think of myself back then It doesn't serve this Do I deserve this with a jaded & a faded worn out pen?
14.
Moving on, moving up Everybody gonna drink from the loving cup Stick it out, suck it in Don't know where the party ends but I'm ready to begin Never doubt, never run pulling out all the stops as we watch the setting sun Talking loud, talking shit I don't need to have it all gimme just a little bit No part time life No part time love No part of anything that I can't rise above Start it up, talk your trash Use your head for something good instead of cruising for a bruise Listen hard, know the scene Don't know where the party ends but it's looking obscene *Ride The Fury ...improvised jibberish.

Good Blonde 01:16
Good blonde nice hair cold eyes warm stare (She was a good blonde!)

17.
Don't tell a soul about it Don't listen to the voice inside your head Can't understand, can't understand the message These things you tell yourself are so misled Don't trust a single thought that you're thinking Live inside the construct that you've made It's beautiful, beautiful but tragic Best risk getting out than over stay This is why a secret is a lie The judgement here is never too surprising It mystifies the way the story plays My practice keeps the little hairs from rising And to decide if it's accepting ways The contradiction leads me to confusion A wall is hard to climb and hard to break My laughter hides a deeper kind of question Another game of hostile give and take
18.
Tired of the waiting Tired of the way All your words are baiting Everything you say Always building walls up Never make a road So much heavy stresses Think you might explode Tiny little pressures Subtle painful cues Think your world is over Nothing left to lose All the lengths you go through Following your dreams Hoping it really works before you're bursting at the seams
19.
Meet me after school Go and make some noise in the garage Think you're pretty cool Strike a pose like a hot desert mirage The grass ain't always green The notebook full of words you left behind Stand in faded jeans Girls like honey bees we're in our prime Let you drive away I couldn't change a thing Nothing more to say More than anything The laughs we gave away All the smiles you bring Won't forget that day More than anything In a darkened room A kick drum like the sound of a gun A bunch of silly fools Keeping all the others on the run
