Drive 03:20
Sun’s coming up and the sky’s turning blue Just like dew There’s so many stupid things that I seem to do When I’ve got nothing else left to lose Could we still love each other, love each other true? From this empty diner From this phone on the wall I will call I just wanted to tell you I’m over it all Yeah, I’m through And I’ve got nothing else left to lose Could we just love each other Love each other true? I’ve been driving all night I’ve been driving all night I’ve been driving all night Just to get back to you Let's go for a drive The sun’s going down I find myself in your car In the dark Just remember when things start falling apart As they do And we’ve got nothing else to lose We can love each other Love each other true…

I get home from work, I tear off my shirt I drink until ten and then collapse in my bed Dream of her all night, wake up and do it again She calls me at five and says “Come over at six”. I’m totally late, she’s totally pissed. We try to make out and it just don’t work. I’m living the jones, She lives without cares. She’s always not home and I’m never there. We traveled cities together and we traveled cities apart. She calls it a night, I call it a day We split up our stuff and go our own separate ways Every once in a while the phone will ring. And I wish I could be always this happy I wish I could just tow the line Oh I want to you know I don’t want you to go I wish I was frozen in time Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah With my band at the show Or hanging out with the crowd I feel so alone I know that ain’t allowed I look at my wrists and I wonder how they Stayed so seamless I can’t give her my trash I can’t give her my eyes I can’t give her what’s mine Because I’m frozen in time Come on, Come on, come on Come on, Come on, come on And I wish I could be always this happy I wish I could just tow the line Yeah I want to you know I don’t want you to go I wish I was frozen in time Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Tow the line...

Yeah-She’s got chemicals, She’s got chemicals for me You know – I used to be a teenage drug taker Till I began to rust inside Still I can’t resist the occasional and that’s exactly how she gets me high No I can’t resist the buzz she gives It gets me everytime These chemicals are right here in my mind Yeah-She’s got chemicals, She’s got chemicals for me She smiles and says “I’ve got a present for you, if you’ll only let me in.” And when I wake up I swear it just can't happen again. Yeah-She’s got chemicals, She’s got chemicals for me Well its plain to see It’s the chemistry That keeps us both together Will those chemicals keep us here forever? Yeah-She’s got chemicals, She’s got chemicals for me

Go Cindy Go 05:00
Go Cindy Go And try to make get most out of life Cause everything is bleeding you dry Though I’d prefer that you stay I know you don’t see it that way O Cindy O You’ve wasted the whole day here again Living like you don't even care So many places you should see Is there some place you should be? Go Cindy Go You’ve got everything under control Come on let your body move to the flow You finally left I’m dreaming of the day that you went I’m living for the day you come back I’ll straighten up all my affairs And never go back there Go Cindy Go You’ve got everything under control Come on let your body move to the flow She’s got a chain reaction Yeah, she's all worked up And it's all worked out She’s got black sunglasses And a nuclear bomb She's gonna turn it around On a sound, on the phone, on the ground Go Cindy Go You’ve got everything under control Come on let your body move to the flow I don’t believe her, Go Cindy Go Go Cindy Go She's go a chain reaction, so go Cindy go Go Cindy Go...

Yes I Do 04:39
My friend, you must be cold as ice If you truly want what you desire For if you try too hard to love her She will leave you If you act like you don’t want her She’ll believe you This part of me is colder than the ocean I fear my heart has lost all emotion Yes I Do There’s the chance she’ll remember your name There’s the chance she’ll forget you just the same If you play the fool of fondness She will beat you If you act like you don’t want her Then she’ll need you. This part of me is colder than the ocean I fear my heart has lost all emotion Yes I Do This part of me is colder than the ocean I fear my heart has lost all emotion Running away from the girl in the bed who would do anything that I said that I said that I don't want I don’t want any more I don’t feel like shouting any longer Yes I Do...

Nothing kills a buzz like a botched suicide It can really ruin your day At the slightest hint of trouble you just run and hide You’ve always been that way I suppose that there’s no chance That you and I were meant to last You’re all I’ve got Now all is lost And now there’s nothing left at all You know its none of my business But you don’t look so good No, you don’t look so good Cycles turns in circles that keep us inside That’s no surprise to me Don’t be shy if you cut deeper you will find That nothing is what it seems Its such a shame there’s no one home I spend way too much time alone The summer’s here and then its gone And I don’t understand at all You know its none of my business But you don’t look so good No, you don’t look so good You’re sitting there just like a child You’re laying down tough you look so proud Don’t look at me cause its not allowed No its not allowed Just remember - every silver lining has a cloud Every silver lining has a cloud...

Junk & Jil 03:32
I ain’t doing so good But I’m doing the best that I can And little Jil’s dressed to kill As she sinks her toes in the sand And all around the world people are marking time Hanging with Junk & Jil So I go to the bar with some cash in my hand And trade it for a ticket on the train to the promised land And all around the world people are marking time hanging with Junk & Jil No use getting mad about it Its only natural to try to improve the way you truly feel No use getting sad about it We just can’t live without the things that keep our lives from getting too real Marking time hanging with Junk & Jil Just marking time hanging with Junk & Jil...

I've got a pickup truck and a morning drive 70 miles each day I've got an empty face I've got hollow eyes that I'm always turning away I've got tamborine and an old guitar That knows me from the outside in I've got a cigarette heart, got a roll of dimes I'm looking for a place to begin A place to begin I'm waiting for the asteroid To blow all of my problems away I'm waiting for the asteroid To bring an end to this day I'm waiting for the asteroid To blow away this whole scene I'm waiting for the asteroid To take me where I've never been I've got flat black hair and a mixing board So I'm always in control And I'm tear down pieces of a dollar bill Chewing out the sides of my soul I've got a transmitting heart and a transparent dog Pushing out a needle and thread I've got a holier than thou attitude Swelling up the size of my head The size of my head I'm waiting for the asteroid To put all my problems to bed I'm waiting for the asteroid To switch out the lights in my head I'm waiting for the asteroid To turn into a pot of gold I'm waiting for the asteroid To keep me To keep me from growing old...

Disconnected 08:05
I know you're suffering I don't really give a damn I'm wandering in this concert hall I had a handful of pills so I took them all This time's for real, this time's for sure You're telling me about your attitudes You're telling me the way it is I don't mean to stomp on your buzz But I've a plane to catch and I have to run This time's for real, this time's for sure If you're out there watching me This will be the last time you see this fool I feel like, I feel like I feel like I’m just passing through Disconnected, so disconnected

Miles Away 06:34
Watching the people do the "to and fro" like some cemetery promenade. "Remember when I said I'd never be one of them?" "Yeah I remember like its yesterday." Its a zombie dance and there ain't no chance Once you join, you will never escape. "One thing I know is I don't want to grow old." "Hey man, sorry its too late." Yeah? Well what about you? Please tell me baby, you You know you drive me crazy don't you? I can tell you're not feeling great I'm not feeling that great myself I spent the whole damn day in some 9 to 5 grave and sold my soul for a living hell Just like you You've got all that money, you Yeah your friends are with you too What about you? Please tell me baby, you You know you drive me crazy don't you? And miles away the lights go out One by one the cities blink out But we don't care because we're miles away Break it down to build it up again Just to see what you will get But you're disappointed and so you destroy it Just to build it up again Just like you You've got all that money,you Yeah your friends are with you too O What about you? Please tell me baby, you You know you drive me crazy don't you? And miles away the lights go out One by one the cities blink out But we don't care because we're miles away...

Miles away and now the signal is cracking and decayed I’d complain but all my words are rendered insane Times been slipping, slipping away and left us here And when there’s no will left inside I can’t be here Garden gate, I suppose its always in my way A big mistake, somebody left a baby their in a crate Now it's part of me And without it I'm incomplete Sew the seeds of make believe And the drugs in the car are me, me, me, me I can turn a blind eye and wait here for so long But if it is so right how come it feels so wrong?
