Track Name: We Used To Be Friends
Oh, you've been, oh, so very cold.
I don't know why you, you've been so damn cold.
I want to talk to you.
But you won't talk to me.
I wonder, should I leave.

Things have changed, haven't they, my friend.
Nothing stays the same, it all changes in the end
But can't we just pretend
Oh, let us just pretend.
That you still love me.

America, do you still love me?

Oh, we used to be the bestest of friends.
Our futures were so bright way back then.
We could do most anything.
Anything at all
Where did we go wrong?

America, do you still love me?

We're not as young as we used to be.
And the things that we learned, we didn't learn for free.
It all came at a cost.
Such a heavy cost.
But do you still love me?

Do you still want me?
Did you ever want me.
Track Name: Everybody's Right (Walk Away)
Everybody knows, everybody understands, everybody knows everything.
Everybody's right, every minute of the day, in every way you can think.
If only we were president
Everything would be alright
Listen up and everything works out fine.

Oh, oh, I'll walk away.
Oh, oh, lemme walk away.
Yes, I'll walk away. Lemme walk away.

Everything is wrong every minute of the day
And there's nothing we can say it seems
If only everyone would listen to our words
It's absurd that no one's listening.
If only we were kings and queens
Everything would be alright
Listen up an everything works out nice.

How nice it must be to live with so much certainty.
Oh, you are right, you are.
You are always right.
Track Name: Drive Me Home
I've been looking for nothing
And I've been finding it everywhere.
I've been counting on no one
And no one is always there.
Oh, I've lowered my expectations
So now I expect nothing
And nothing always shows up right on time
And no one is my best friend.
Oh, I've been looking for somewhere
Somewhere I can go
And I've been looking for someone
Someone who can drive me home.

So drive me home, honey.
Ah, just drive me home.

I've been struggling forever
I guess I'm never gonna win.
But that's okay with me, my friend
Now hand over that bottle of gin.
I've lowered my expectations
So now I expect nothing
And nothing always shows up right on time
And no one is my best friend.
Oh, I've been looking for somewhere
Somewhere I can go
And I've been looking for someone
Someone who can drive me home.

So drive me home, sugar.
Ah, just drive me home.
I can't drive myself.

Working hard doesn't mean success, I wonder if it ever did
And just because somethings broken doesn't mean that it's getting fixed
And it's not prostitution if everybody's sucking dicks
So suck that dick!

So drive me home, honey.
Ah, just drive me home.
Yeah, you can drive me home.
Ah, just drive me home.
Track Name: Wolves
No one's on our side.
No, not at all.
They're coming for us, lover
And they're carrying the bomb.

They've got their claws
Their sharpened fangs
And their out for blood, my brother
Bringing misery and pain.

But no one cares,
They simply look away
And hide their face.

While the wolves
Are closing in
We're never gonna make it
But we're never giving in.

There's nothing we can do.
Nothing at all.
They've got the ammunition, and the guns they've got them all.

They loosed the hounds
They dropped the bomb
The fighters are still fightin' but the fightin's almost done.

While the crows
eat the eyes
Of another fallen comrade, another wasted life.

So this song is for the fallen
Calling out your name.
I can see you, I can hear you
I remember them.
Track Name: Edge Walker
Oh, you know that it will be alright
You know we'll feel alright
So very soon.

Oh, you know that it will be okay
Just let it slip away
What can we do?

Let's take a walk
Out to the edge
Let's dangle from the precipice
Til our last breath.

Oh, you know that we are getting older,
but we are getting better looking.

Close your eyes, another new surprise
Another something wicked is a'cooking

Oh, you know that it will be just fine
You know it's just your mind
That you can't still

Oh, you know that when it's broken down
We make the newest sounds
And then we kill.

Let's take a walk
Out to the edge
Let's dangle from the precipice
Til our last breath.
Track Name: Cocksuckers & Motherfuckers
Cocksuckers, and motherfuckers, and all you assholes too.
Tiny pricks with great big guns, shooting little kids in school.
I wanna be rich
I wanna be well
I wanna be whole.
But I'd rather be somewhere else, is there somewhere else I can go?

Oh, I know that I can't get away.
From these fucked up things.
And these fucked up lies.
And these fucked up dreams.
And my fucked up life.
And my fucked up heart.
Oh, it's falling apart.

Oh, I wish that I could shoot somebody dead.
Oh, I wish I could drop the bomb.
All I need is a comet to drive into the earth.
All I need is everyone to feel my hurt.

Douchebags and know-it-alls and everybody inbetween.
Rich fuck and dilletantes and every hipster in the scene.
I wanna blow-up
I wanna be be big
I wanna survive
But I'd rather be somewhere else, can I please leave here tonight.

Oh, it's so damn hard, to keep this up, to keep this anger going.
But if, I let it go, I've gotta cry, I've gotta weep a river
And oh, I'm just done. I'm just tired of the anger and sadness
So, what, what can I do? What can I do. What can I do?

I wanna be rich
I wanna be well
I wanna be whole.
I wanna blow up
I wanna be big
But I want you to know
That I'd rather be somewhere else, somewhere far away.
Oh, I'd rather be somewhere else, somewhere in outer space.
Track Name: Death & Taxes
Oh, the reaper
She's coming for me.
Yes, the reaper
Is coming for me.

She's clad in black and white
And there's nothing in her eyes.
Nothing at all.

But taxman, got there before her
Yeah, the taxman, got there before her
And he took most everything,
except this song I sing,
He took it all

Oh, my dealer
I'm waiting on her.
Yes, my dealer
I'm waiting on her.
She's got something for me.
Something that I need
She's got it all.

Oh, my preacher
He's praying for me
Yes, my preacher
He's praying for me
The choir, oh they sing
But there's just no saving me
No way at all.

Oh, the devil,
He walks beside me
Yes, the devil
He walks beside me
Jesus loves me more
But the devil, oh, I'm sure, got there before
Track Name: Armageddon Reds
Hey there, brother,
what's going down?
When did you get so damn depressed?

Just because the world is ending now
Doesn't mean you shouldn't get dressed.

(chorus)
Don't let it get you down.
Don't let it make you blue.
Instead, let's all get red
Get red instead
That's what we'll do.

Hey there, brother,
What's going down?
I'm glad you chose to stick around.

Hey there, sister, the ceiling's glass
Oh, damn, you hit it pretty fast.

Just because the world is so unfair
Doesn't mean you shouldn't wash your hair.

Hey there, sister, the ceiling's glass.
Do you got a rock?
Smash, smash!

Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war.
We love more war!

Hey there, mister,
How do you do?
And does it get you through the day?

Hey there, missus,
Oh, how are you?
Are you better than you were yesterday?

Hey there, people,
You're quite upset
You can bet, everyone is too.
Track Name: Say It With A Bullet
Say it with a bullet, lover
Write your name and write another
Fire that bullet at the heart
And watch the walls come tumbling down.

Say it with a bullet, brother
Shoot the heart of your new lover
Shoot that bullet straight and true
There's nothing more that you can do.

Turn on the radio.
Listen to the sounds of bullets richocheting.

Turn on the stereo
Everyone is listening, everybody is obeying

The rhyme and the ring
Of the bullets as they sing.

Say it with a bullet, darlin'
Bullets get the heart jumpstarted
Fire that bullet at the heart
And watch the walls all fall apart.

Say it with a bullet, mister
Fire that bullet as you kiss her
Steady aim and fire true
There's nothing more that you can do.
Track Name: What My Heart Tells My Head
You think maybe we oughta get away.
You say that maybe we should make a break
And head for the hills
with our rifles and our canteens.

You say that maybe we should disappear
You say there's just too much trouble here
There's too much to fear
Oh, there's too much that can go wrong.

Don't you worry,
We will work it out
There is nothing that
Can tear us down
And the dangers that
lie ahead
We'll face them down.
Let's stick around.

You fret too much about everything
Sometimes you just gotta let it be
And dig the ride
It's a fun ride
Most of the time.

So take your worries and all your woes
And put 'em down, please let them go
And just dig the ride
It's alright
Most of the time.

I know it's difficult
I know it's hard to let things go.
I know it's troublesome.
But I want you to know
Track Name: Fucking Dumb
Sugar, when we get drunk at night
And we start to fight
And the words start wounding
Please don't heed a word I say
Oh, not anything
I'm so very foolish.
I don't know why I say anything.

Cause I'm so fucking dumb.
I never shoulda opened my mouth.
I'm so fucking dumb
I gotta say
I don't know anything

I'm so fucking dumb
I never shoulda said a word
I'm so fucking dumb
I'm a jerk
I don't know anything at all.

Sugar, last night I was ridiculous
Oh, I'll take ownership
Of my behavior.
Baby, oh the booze,
gets the best of me
So, don't you heed
Anything
I'm so sorry for the things I do.

The one thing I've learned after all of my years
Is I know nothing, I know nothing at all.
I have some notions but no solid facts
Hell, maybe your green is my blue-black.
And I don't know why I
ever try to be right
Track Name: What My Head Tells My Heart
You cheesy little engine of hope
You really effed us up
By hoping on and dreamin careless dreams.

And every time you conjure up another goddamn hopeless wish
Well, you just don't learn, you just can't learn it seems.

What you just don't see
Is how much your hope hurts me
There's nothing worse than wishing on star.

So, stop your hoping now
And lets figure out just how
We're gonna get a little further than we are.

Can we do that please?

You silly little maker of wants
You never give it up
There's always something else you feel we need.

But can't you see that everything good that's ever come to us
Was a result of work and sweat and bleeding.
Track Name: We're Both Fucked Up
I know I disappear for days at a time.
Sure my body's here but I've retreated to the confines of my mind.
I know you've disappeared, you're just as good at that too
And so we're both invisible, hiding from the things we need to do

And we don't get 'em done.
And we just put 'em off.
We wait and wait and hope that if we wait long enough
Something's gonna change
Something's gonna give
But lover, don't you know, this is just no way to live.
This is no way to live.

But I love you
And sure we're both fucked up
But what else can we do?

And so we coast along, it's like we're just standing still
The problem with coasting is, we're most certainly going downhill
And every day we wake, we wanna make a change
But the things we need to change just seem so goddamn far away.
Track Name: So Long And Thanks For All The Fish
So, I guess that I'm ending
much sooner than I thought.
'Cause so few are spending
any money on my songs.

Oh, I don't have time for business
'Cause I'm busy writing tunes
Oh, I hope another song will see me through.

Yeah, I sense that it's over
Oh, much sooner than we guessed.
But every minute I did it
Well, those minutes were the best.

Oh, I don't have time for money
'Cause I'm busy writing tunes
Oh, I hope another song will see me through.

I spend most my days writing songs
I don't know where all the money's gone.
And I realize there's nothing I can do.
'Cause I just ain't a business man
I just write songs as best I can
And if I die, before I wake, I pray
I wrote a song today.
la la la la
A new song today.
la la la la
Oh, I pray
la la la la
I wrote a song today.

I'm just one disaster
From throwing in the towel.
But there's nothing I'm after
I wouldn't get it anyhow.
The only thing in life that I
ever want for me
Is time enough to write a melody.

And so I thank you, all of you
who are still here
For paying attention all throughout these many years.
Sure times were tough,
There always hard
I've finally learned that's true.
But I wouldn't trade with you.
