Track Name: Throwing Knives
They’re in the house
Creepin up
Scream and shout
I’ve had enough

I hear em throwin knives tonight
I say don’t you know any better
Imaginary wall divide
I wish I could not feel the weather

But I can’t leave yet
Not just yet
Living cheap as it gets
Lower my expectations

Summer sun coming
Take me away
I want to be anywhere but here
Nighttime heat I can’t
Get no relief
I swear it’s getting hotter every year

I wake up and you’re in my ear
Oh and it’s only Monday night
Won’t you tell me how you really feel
Oh yeah quit trying to be polite

I can’t leave yet
Not just yet
Living cheap as it gets
Lower my expectations

It’s all in my head
It’s only in my head
It’s all in my head
I’m better off than dead

I can’t leave yet
Not just yet
Living as cheap as it gets
Lower my expectations
Track Name: Virtual Man
I always wanted to be free
I always wanted to be healthy
Now it never bothers me
I’m sinking down in real time

Oh boy
Every single joy
All the fascination
Never to belong
Another page is gone

Won’t you tell me how it feels
Won’t you show me what it looks like
Living life outside these walls
I’m falling out of touch now

Oh boy
Every single Joy
All the fascination
Never to belong
Another page is gone

Now I’m talking in my sleep
And everyone can hear me
All my life is such a tease
I’ll take what I can get free
Oh boy
Track Name: Regulars
Dead of night
Have a look in the mirror
Waste of time
Nothing going on here tonight
We got the best in town
Not really that good
Put your money down
We’re regulars
So regular

Wait around
In too deep
One more hour
Can not sleep

Suns up
I’m down
Cool blue
Walk it off
Go home
Nothing new
Suns up
And I’m down
Suns up

Second wind
Hold me up
Can’t grow tired
Never enough
No way
We got the best in town
Really not that good at all
Never touch the ground

Suns up
I’m down
Cool blue
Walk it off
Go home
Nothing new
Suns up
And I’m down
Suns up

Wait till tonight and we can do it again

We’re regulars
So regular

Suns up
I’m down
Cool blue
Walk it off
Go home
Track Name: No Future
Trying to find another answer
I don’t wanna tell them the truth
Bide my time until I get there
I wanna be someone like you

But what if I can’t
What if I can’t ever really be proud
What if I can’t ever say it aloud

I’m an anthropologist
I keep late night hours
Saving myself for death
I’ve got super powers

Trying to find another answer
I don’t wanna tell them the truth
Bide my time until I get there
I wanna be someone like you

But what if I can’t
What if I can’t ever really be proud
What if I can’t ever say it aloud
What if I can’t ever really be proud
What if I can’t ever say it aloud

I’m a professional man
I’ve got a lot to say
I take it seriously
Below minimum wage

No future

Trying to find another answer
I don’t wanna tell them the truth
Bide my time until I get there
I wanna be someone like you

But what if I can’t
What if I can’t ever really be proud
What if I can’t ever say it aloud

No future for me
No future no way
No future for you
No future it’s true
No future alright
No future not tonight
No future oh yeah
No future
Track Name: Dance Square
Creepin in my mind
Creepin in my soul
Somethin that you only hear one time
And you loose control

It happens again
I’m singing along
Have a good time
I say time and again
Working you hard
Out on the floor
Looking alive
I said and it’s alright

Dance square
How can you dance
People dance square
How can you dance all alone
Dance square
Dancing like nobody care
Who really cares

Meet me there tonight
Meet me on that floor
Underneath that neon light
When you get so close

It happens again
I’m moving along
Have a good time
I say time and again
Working you hard
Out on the floor
Looking alive
I say and it’s alright

Dance square
How can you dance
People dance square
How can you dance all alone
Dance square
Dancing like nobody care
Who really cares

How can you dance
Just meet me on the floor
How can you dance all alone
I don’t want your number
How can you dance
Track Name: Love Sick
I’m love sick
And my love she doesn’t know
How I think about her
I’m love sick
And my love she doesn’t know

I’ll tell you why
Why I feel sick inside
All alone at night
Slowly lost track of time

She’s gone for good this time
And I’m still hanging on

I’m love sick
And my love she doesn’t know
How I think about her
I’m love sick
And my love she doesn’t know

I’ll tell you why
Why I wanna die tonight
All alone am I
Surely I’ve lost my mind

She’s gone for good this time
And I’m still hanging on

Oh I’ll never know why
I tell myself she’s gonna come home some day
I keep waiting by
The door for someone who’s gonna come and take my heart away

I’m love sick
And my love she doesn’t know
How I think about her
I’m love sick
And my love she doesn’t know

She’s gone for good this time
And I’m still hanging on
Track Name: Cruise Control
Sitting all alone in his SUV
He’s thinking bout the last three weeks
In and out
He was gone without a sound
Yesterday he woke up late
And he drank the night straight through
Still half drunk he left
Yes he packed and hit the road

Don’t know why she told me
I’m not welcome there
Can’t be my fault baby
Why can’t you be clear

Nameless then
Forgotten now

55 miles on cruise control
He’s thinking bout the next 3 weeks
Going home he wonders
Oh what will they think
Just a month ago he told them he was headed
South to start anew
No time for his hair to grow
He’s headed home too soon

Don’t know why she told me
I’m not welcome there
Can’t be my fault baby
Why can’t you be clear

Nameless then
Forgotten now

He’s drivin down the interstate
And he says to himself
I don’t need them anyway

Don’t know why she told me
I’m not welcome there
Can’t be my fault baby
Why can’t you be clear
Don’t know why they tell me
I’m not welcome there
It must be my fault baby
Why can’t you be clear

He went home that day
Alone ever since
Track Name: Steady Rollin
Old river with a lazy eye
Steady rollin on through
Hasn’t got a care at all no
Hasn’t got a clue
Don’t tell me it’s easy
Lazy you
Don’t tell me it’s not your fault
Just passing on through
Steady roll on

Old river don’t stop
Don’t stop for you
Doesn’t have a change of heart no
Steady holding true
Don’t tell me it’s easy
Lazy you
Don’t tell me it’s not your fault
Just passing on through
Steady roll on
I’m sitting on the shoreline
Sweating bullets in the hot sun
I can tell you it’s a sure fire way
Passing time until it’s gone
Track Name: Living Alone
I get up in the morn’
Inhale when I’m alone
Breathe in deep
I wanna make believe
Oh yeah
Soon I’ll be soaring
High above the law
Watch out mamma
I’ma make a scene
Oh yeah

Been living alone for too long

Given up on feeling
Bad for staying in
I got nothing but a dime to spend
Oh no
Soon I’ll be leaving
Wish that I knew when
Keep my head up and wait till then

Pour another drink
I’m trying to organize
I got no where to be tonight
Oh no

Been living alone for too long
