Track Name: Listen
You and me, we got something to talk about
There are plans I've made and there are plans you've made for you
And though we can't seem to figure out
There are no plans I can see without you
Cause there is time for us tonight
Yes there's time to get it right
Yes there's time, but I don't know what to say anymore
So I listen to what you say
And I listen and I don't pull away
And I listen and I hold on tight
Cause I don't know what to say tonight

I don't know where it is we will go from here
There's no path that I see that makes any sense.
All I want is this confusion to disappear
Lord I am just so tired of sitting on this fence
Cause there's time to figure this out
Yes there's time to see what it's about
Yes there's time but I don't know what I need any more
So I listen to what you say
And I listen and I don't pull away
And I listen and I hold on tight cause I don't know what I need tonight

Does every day need to be like this
Take one step forward then resist
Does every day need to be so hard just to be loved
To be loved
Just to be loved

You and me, I don't know where we're going
We've been talking an we still don't know
All the cards that I have I am showing
So if you're holding back something would you let me know
And make some time to figure this out
Make some time to see what it's about
Make some time cause all I know is I need you right now
So I listen to what you say
And I listen and I don't pull away
And I listen and I hold on tight
Because I don't know what I need tonight
So I listen and I hold on too
Yes I listen can you listen too
So I listen and I hold on tight
Because you are all I need tonight
Track Name: When It Comes My Time to Die
Ain't nobody gonna die for me when it comes my time to die
You might move the earth for the place I finally lie
and you might be my friend and when I go you'll cry
But there ain't nobody gonna die for me when it comes my time to die

Ain't nobody gonna choose for me when it comes my time to choose
You might play this game like it's only when or lose
When it comes to picking is it only ones and twos
Ain't nobody gonna choose for me when it comes my time to choose

And when I go to sleep and when I rest my head
There ain't nobody going to answer for all the things I said
and everything I done it all comes back on me
I don't have to wait until I'm gone for to finally see

Ain't nobody gonna die for me when it comes my time to die
You may gnash your teeth let out an awful cry
but you can't change that thing no matter what you try
cause there ain't nobody gonna die for me when it comes my time to die
Track Name: Don't Ask Me
I thought I'd get rich selling stocks and bonds
It was the internet, the great long con
Where the road up goes up forever
And the party never ends
But it weren't easy like Sunday
It was cold as rain
In the middle of December
When you're going insane
And you say for the 55th time
I can't do this again
Things got bad before they worse
It was the end of an age
We were riding in a hearse
And the big banks got bigger as part of the scam
I didn't know whether the hustle
Or whether to hide
And we went broke
My baby cried
and I said
just who in the hell do you think that I am
Why's there got so much that I got to lose
What the hell do I got to prove
To myself
To myself
Oh to myself
So don't ask me, where I'm going
I ain't been there so I don't know
All that 's ending is me pretending
That I am someone that I don't know

Things hit bottom in March of 09
People were pointing fingers instead catching crime
Like throwing all them basterds that did this all into jail
Me I sold insurance to pay the bills
The 9-5 grind you know the one that kills
Where just getting by, feels just like hell
Why I got so much to prove
Why I've got so much to lose
Like myself
Like myself
I could lose myself
So don't ask me, where I'm going
I ain't been there so I don't know
All that 's ending is me pretending
That I am someone that I don't know

The stock market got better
but the people stayed poor
except for the rich
They got a little more
And the politicians they paid to get there
All acted like kids
Me I gave it up
Yeah I grabbed my guitar
I was hoping I could make it or at least get far
enough away from who I was and all that I did
Ain't got nothing left to lose
Ain't got nothing left to prove
To myself
To myself
Not to myself

So don't ask me, where I'm going
I ain't been there so I don't know
All that 's ending is me pretending
That I am someone that I don't know
No, I ain't someone that I don't know
Track Name: This Is What Madness
This is what madness feels like
This is how crazy feels
This is what madness looks like
This is how crazy feels

Today I heard a principal
Suspensed a kid from school
For bringing a ring
He said could make
another kid disappear
and 50 % of congressman
who say the are Republican
no, they don't believe

In science.

This is what madness feels like
This is how crazy feels
This is what madness looks like
This is how crazy feels

and then I heard
they burned a pilot up
just to show that they mean business
and a senator said restaurants don't have to wash their hands
no, they don't have to wash
their hands

This is what madness feels like
This is how crazy feels
This is what madness looks like
This is how crazy feels

and you don't want to vaccinate your children
and you say that Moses was a founding father
and govenor and you say you're christian
but you put people to death
and cops can have tanks and stuff
and the NFL pays no taxes
and congressmen can give themselves raise
for doing
nothing

This is what madness feels like
This is how crazy Kills
This is what madness looks like
This is how crazy kills
Track Name: While I Lie Here and Bleed
Why's it always 3 a.m.
when my thoughts like tar turn black
These broken possiblities
and thing I can't take back
A sabre tooth once proud and bold
struggles to be free
But there ain't no shaking loose of this
While I lie here and bleed

Why's it alway 4 o'clock
Like quicksand things get worse
The more I think
the more I sink
with every vain outburst
The ground below me slips away
as I grasp at what I need
But there ain't no branch for me to climb
While I lie here and bleed

Everynight, I try to go to sleep
I get lost in these reveries and thoughts that keep
Me speaking to some spectre
or the thoughts trapped in my head
Where I don't know what is worse
What's done or what is said

Why at five do I strive
To make this all make sense
Like hacking through some jungle vines
that just have grown to dense
And as I search for sustenence
From which my soul can feed
No there ain't no sense
To none of this
While I lie here and bleed

No there ain't no sense
To none of this
While I lie here and bleed
Track Name: Paranoid Punk
A bad attitude is our only defense
And we don't care if it makes no sense

I need some release
Before I get any peace
I've been walking upstairs
Just to get no where

Well I don't know about you
but I've seen those games they play
The take away the cheese
Then lock you in the maze
It's funny when they try and talk
Pretend they are just like you
But their words never measure up
to the heinous things they do

I got lost in some weird American dream
But I saw them and how they plot and they scheme
And they tell you good words and tell you good lies
and put up a good front but it's just a disguise
then they change all the rules and tell you it's fair
and pull out their guns when they see you don't scare

I'm going down now
You know I found the bottom
I'm going down now
You know I really wanna
I'm going down now
And it's plain to see
That the bottom ain't where it used to be
No, the bottom ain't where it used to be
Track Name: I Lost My Love To New Orleans
Sitting in a terminal feeling close to terminal
The sky was very blue that day
I was waiting on a train to see
If that I might ever be
Something close to normal one day
And I know that time might do something
To stop and ease my pain
But I am never getting used to the thought
That I am never going to see you again

And I can be so strong for oh so long
but this ain't the worse I've seen
If you ask me why I look so down
Well I lost my love to New Orleans

Is this a game of lose and tell
If so then I am losing well
This second time it's happened to me
I am waiting on this train today
to take me very far awary
From the city below the sea
Is there something that I am supposed to learn
Well I don't really care
Cause it breaks my heart to look for you
And I can not find you any where

And I can be so strong for oh so long
but this ain't the worse I've seen
If you ask me why I look so down
Well I lost my love to New Orleans

I must believe that time marches on
I must concede now that you're gone
I must believe that time marches on
On you on me, on everthing

Everyone back up I just need to breathe
I need to sit and watch this fall apart
and I don't know how I am doing this
When I barely feel the beating of my heart
and I go on for another day
and I go on cause there is no other way
And I go on though I fall apart
Though I fall apart

CauseI can be so strong for oh so long
but this is the worse I've seen
And I'm breaking down in front of you
Because I lost my love to New Orleans

I lost my love to New Orleans

I lost my love to New Orleans
Track Name: Pistol

Track Name: Slave
black orange white and red
dresses hanging off your bed
from now until you reach your grave
baby I will be your slave
ask for your hand to hold
you know I could never be so bold
I could never be so brave
baby I will be your slave
lying words like overflow
they'll rule your heart - before you know
they'll cover you - from head to toe
they'll never mean a word they say
they just go
I can't bring your mother back to life
or bring your father back his sight
It's overcome me like a tidal wave
baby I will be your slave

I'm broken, lost in misery
but you don't have to worry about me
I have no more soul to save
Track Name: Sunshine
I've been standing here
Way too long
We're going to move on down the road
I woke up with my eyes open wide
We're going to move on down the road
Because the sun she is shining down on me

Your love has kept me warm all these years
We're going to move on down the road
I let go of all my fears
We're going to move on down the road
Because that sun, she is shining down on me

All the roads that lead me on
To where I see the sun shining down on me

I have got it right this time
We're going to move on down the road
Nothing holds me back any more
We're going to move on down the road
