Track Name: Wildlife
Birds in the trees
Bees in the breeze
Snakes in the leaves
Dogs with the fleas
Fish in the sea dip through the reefs
Bears in the woods
Everybody freeze
the gods must be crazy
It’s a wild life baby
Track Name: Go Back
The day that I was born I looked at the sky and said “God why’d you push me out a pussy to die?”
I was amazed and afraid. I was cold I was naked. Then a stranger came and I was folded in a blanket.
I said, “I don’t think I’m ready. I don’t think I’m done yet.” I was shook the first time I saw the sunset.
I thought that it was gone and it was never coming back. Now and again I still get like that.

Allahu akbar
Shalom
Sweet Jesus
Everything we love someday is gonna leave us

I remember all the times before. Well that won’t happen anymore and all the times that I regret.
Well I’m all set. You can’t go back again. You can’t go back again.
But you can sing that song again.

I remember sneaking out jumping over the sill, just to see my sleepy town so sober and still.
P-fives in the dead of the winter. At the packy I say, “Hey mister.”
I remember older kids with cars and acne. I remember getting older, the party, the back seat. I remember some things that I thought I forgot. I remember once or twice every particle stopped.

Allahu akbar
Shalom
Sweet Jesus
Everything we love someday is gonna leave us

I remember all the times before. Well that won’t happen anymore and all the times that I regret.
Life’s not fair. You can’t go back again. You can’t go back again. You can go back again. You can’t go back again.
But you can sing that song again.


Sometimes I can’t tell between good and bad luck. I’m looking more and more like my dad in my dad’s truck.
Life is moving fast enough to leave my ass in the dust. These days I’m just tryna catch up.
Now how come all the good ones had to leave? Before we even popped a bottle on New Years Eve.
The clock struck and we sang Old Lang Syne. A fuckin’ box truck couldn’t haul this pain o’ mine.

Allahu akbar
Shalom
Sweet Jesus
Everything we love someday is gonna leave us

I remember all the times before. Well that won’t happen anymore and all the times that I regret.
Well I’m all set. You can’t go back again. You can’t go back again. You can’t go back again. You can’t go back again.
But you can sing that, you can sing that, you can sing that, you can sing that song again.
You can’t go back again. You can’t go back again. But you can sing that song again.
Track Name: Icarus
Icarus fidgeted/ he had trouble with listening
as he sat in the pews amungst the other parishioners
He heard the good word but all he saw was the girls
Could’t wait for the world to hurry up and unfurl
A little too tall for a two horse town
Mama wouldn’t let him go more than two doors down
He said, “I gotta go. Gotta run to the sea. Get as close to the sun as a boy can be.”

Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
If you love me let me go
If you love me
Let me go

Icarus spit up the most ridiculus lyrics
as if he was afflicted with spirits of the mischievous
Misunderstood, he was mistook for an idiot
by all of the teachers, preachers and villagers
A little bit quick when he skipped out of town
He burned out his clutch and the truck broke down
When that grey hound bus touched down in Venice Beach
He was as close to the sun as a boy could be

Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
If you love me let me go
If you love me
Let me go

Now Icarus lives in this blissful oblivion
He sings like an angel and dance like an indian
He rolls with his homies and he chills with his women friends
He know that he’s golden so he blows all his dividends
A little bit quick when he shot to the top
Felt the wax on his wings start to sizzle off and drop

Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
If you love me let me go
If you love me
Let me go
Track Name: Domino
Domino

We're on the fast train
propane and cocaine
She's on her back
she's just waiting for that call
It was a setup
right from the getup
she's got my back
got my back against the wall

She, she don't care
care at all

CHORUS
And I know it's not fair
but you'll have it, I wouldn't care
One push we'll fall like dominos
And I know it's too late
why don't you get your story straight
One push we'll fall like dominoes

We'll drive around town
We'll burn the bridge down
We'll start a fire
and won't wait to piss it out
She's locomotion
so pick your potion
it won't last so drink it fast
without a doubt


She, she don't care
care at all
and she, she can't wait
wait to fall

CHORUS

We're on the fast train
propane and cocaine
she's got my back
got my back against the wall

CHORUS
Track Name: Had a Ball
Get in the van/ Get on the boat
Gate check, lets float
up up and away we go
Case close, suitcase closed
Nah man we stay in clothes
Kinda grimy the way we roll

Last call/ lights up
Fight club/ night club
Coffee cup breakfast special
Bearded up and real disheveled

We had a ball
We had a ball

Hotel, Motel on the floor air mattress
Out in Erie, Art put us up with a convict
Great Lakes, Cinnamon Bay
10 Below or 98, get us on stage and we’ll be straight

Can of Fix ‘a Flat foam
that’ll get us back on the road
philosophizing, crackin’ jokes
A happy little pack of wolves
A happy little pack of wolves

We had a ball
Not that many
and if that was all
that’d be plenty
I love you so but I don’t know where this will go
We had a ball
We had
We had
We had a ball

Fill the tank with gasoline
So many miles in-between
Instantly Ben’s asleep

Stick a sticker on the door
with everybody there before
We’ll be there forever more

Been in places they don’t dance
Places they take off their pants
Any place we pass through/ We set up shop and smash fruit
we set up shop and smash fruit

We had a ball
Not that many
and if that was all
that’d be plenty
I love you so but I don’t know where this will go
We had a ball
We had
We had
We had a ball
Track Name: No Caroline No
CAROLINE

I was hanging out wasting time,
smoking weed, got you on my mind
I hear what you say
telling all your friends that I was gay
Don't know what to do
cause all i ever think about is you

CHORUS
Cause all I want to do
is hang around with you
but you don't have to go
No, no, Caroline, no

i got you by the hook skipping class
beaching it and lying on my ass
Oh no you wouldn't dare
almost saw you in your underwear
I don't know what to do
cause all i ever think about is you

CHORUS x2

Cause all I want to do
is hang around with you
but you don't have to go
No, no, Caroline, no

I got you on my mind
I'm gonna make you mine
but you don't have to go
No, no, Caroline, no
Track Name: Martyr
My hearts not broke but it’s bruised a bit
It aches when it rains but I’m used to it
And I’m getting better at holding myself upright
I’m alright
I got scars everybody can see
I inked ‘em in so they belong to me
But I wouldn’t with ‘em on my enemies
Man you wouldn’t get it
quit sippin’ on my remedy

You couldn’t feel my pain
I wouldn’t ask you to
But you could hold my hand
if you should happen to

I’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
Above troubled water

My hearts banged up but it’s not broke
And I might fall but I don’t fold
And I don’t know what you’ve been told
but you don’t know a thing about me, oh no
I don’t owe no explanation
When I go off the reservation
I could be the topic of the conversation
They could talk it how they wanna
but they don’t say shit

You couldn’t feel my pain
I wouldn’t ask you to
But you could hold my hand
if you should happen to

I’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
Above troubled water

And then someone will say, “It get’s better with time.”
But I don’t want it to change
I don’t want to change

You couldn’t feel my pain
I wouldn’t ask you to
But you could hold my hand
if you should happen to

I’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
Above troubled water
Troubled water
Troubled water
Track Name: World Spins
WORLD SPINS

I said I live my life, I take my time
I do it cause it feels so right to me

But I'm struggling to breathe

CHORUS

Cause the world keeps spinning around
There's bad people winning
but I keep grinning
cause the world keeps snipping around


So party hard and live your life
do it til you're six feet in the ground
i said you'll never know what you'll miss
do it all tip you're six feet in the ground

til you're buried in the ground
but i'm safe without a sound

CHORUS

it spins round around around
but I'm six feet in the ground
but i'm safe without a sound
oh i spin round around around

I cracked my back and caught a flash back
To when I used to sag my pants half off my ass crack
I was sixteen in a Honda hatchback
Doing one-sixteen down route six and back
Six Feet Deep was on bast
In a tape deck that was taped in the dash
The driver’s side wiper was scrapin’ the glass
I been procrastinating about replacing that
And I had a little bit of weight in the stash
But it was not enough for me to make major cash
And I spent it quick when I was making it fast
on a couple Carhartts and a case of Labatts
IN my own mind I was famous in fact
I was on my way to put my face on the map
I was a maniac I was deranged I was tapped
Just when I thought it would stop
It took me right back

CHORUS x2

Cause the world keeps spinning around
There's bad people winning
but I keep grinning
cause the world keeps snipping around
Don't tell me how to live my life
Cause the world keeps spinning around
The times will change, the people reign
Cause the world keeps spinning around

it spins round around around
but I'm six feet in the ground
but i'm safe without a sound
oh i spin round around around
Track Name: Tell Me (You Want Me)
Well you roll your eyes, big disaster
feeling fine, driving faster
tip you're mine, I'll never let you go
And you're out of time, I've got some questions
You turn them all into suggestions
I gotta learn, learn to let you go

Cause you're on the right track
I have to let you go
And you wanna tell me
Tell me, but you're so…

CHORUS

Oh Girl,
Tell me you want me,
Cause I will let you know


And you see the light,
you gotta get into the fight
you do yourself in
but you might just let me know
And you don't know what to say but you can't find an answer
Feel like you're the cure, but you look like cancer
i just might- No, I'll never let you go

CHORUS x2
Track Name: Smile for the Camera
I wake up in the mooring with my eyes half close
Bake up in the morning with jay half smoked
I kiss the Kalashnikov goodbye then I go
I step out side to a sky full of drones

The sun is beating down from behind the black haze
The air is getting warm and the sky is flat grey
I maneuver through the ruins where the rats race
Slip a mask on my face on the back of the train
I’m as high as the poison that the pigeons fly through
I wonder whats the difference in a pigeons eye view
See they don’t make decisions like you and I do
I see the pigeon take a shit on a suicide booth

Oh do your job and remember
to smile for the camera
You hit the nail on the hammer
smile for the camera
You have to choose what to do
What do you have to lose
Mind Your P’s, watch your grammar
Smile for the camera

Broken back tenements
Sky scrape skeletons
that’s the devil’s residence
That’s where the devil lives
Broken bottle symphony
Gas rag poporri
Try to keep the focus please
Pandoras opening
Murder birds flock in the sky without a sound
They lock it and they load it then they drop it on the ground
but the nails about to move before the hammer hits
Look up and the sky and smile for the camera big
Smile for the Camera big

Oh do your job and remember
to smile for the camera
You hit the nail on the hammer
smile for the camera
You have to choose what to do
What do you have to lose
Mind Your P’s, watch your grammar
Smile for the camera

Smile for the camera
Smile for the camera
Track Name: Dreamer
Like B.I.G. said, it was all a dream
Get a pen and pad
get a guitar and sing
All I ever wanted of all the things
was to find lightning and get to bottling
How bad did I wanna be Cobain?
Felt so sad when he blew his brains
How bad did I wanna meet Mobb Deep?
Mean muggin’ everybody in my Cape Cod streets

I had a hooptie a Honda a Dodge and a Taurus
but you know how I’m rolling when I roll into the chorus man

Lawyers in Lexus’s
Bankers in Beemers
I’m going for broke in a van full of dreamers
I hope I don’t die broke down by the river
‘cause everyone knows it’s hard for the dreamers
But I’m still a dreamer
Forever a dreamer

Forever I’m
I’m still a dreamer
Forever I’m
I’m still a dreamer
Whether I’m wide awake or I’m sleeping
Wherever I’m at
Forever a dreamer

My little brother man he was a dreamer
He’s gone but we speak when I’m dreaming
Wide awake or asleep when I’m dreaming
It gets so deep when I’m dreaming
In high school I as a loner a stoner
Sleeping on my desk I was never caught sober
The I got a little bigger and I got a little older
I could fit a little more on my shoulders
Dreams are the steam that move my nights
Sometimes I wonder if these dreams have ruined my life
If I’ll ever find a way to work out a plan
or I’ll just die another dreamer at work with his hands

I had a hooptie a Honda a Dodge and a Taurus
but you know how I’m rolling when I roll into the chorus man

Lawyers in Lexus’s
Bankers in Beemers
I’m going for broke in a van full of dreamers
I hope I don’t die broke down by the river
‘cause everyone knows it’s hard for the dreamers
But I’m still a dreamer
Forever a dreamer

Forever I’m
I’m still a dreamer
Forever I’m
I’m still a dreamer
Whether I’m wide awake or I’m sleeping
Wherever I’m at
Forever a dreamer
Forever I’m
I’m still a dreamer
Forever I’m
I’m still a dreamer
Whether I’m wide awake or I’m sleeping
Wherever I’m at
Forever a dreamer
Track Name: Comin' Down
A hot shower and a Percocet
A cold beer and a cigaret
Full clothed on a hotel bed
the AC and the T.V. set

A broke back and a burnt neck
Pay the price just to earn a check
I broke a promise and I burn a bridge
You’d think by now I would’ve learned to live

When the work don’t work and the drinks don’t drown
and there’s every indication my direction’s hell bound
I’m comin’ down

I’m comin’ down
I’m comin’ down
On a Sunday morning comin’ down
I’m comin’ down
I’m comin’ down
On a Sunday morning comin’ down

Who would’ve thought?
Who could believe?
How much it took for you to leave?
Say I’m a loser and I’m a creep
but I’m not losing out on any sleep
I told you back when we started this
It’d wear thin like cartilage

When the love can’t cover up the tracks on the ground
and there’s every indication my direction’s hell bound
I’m comin’ down

I’m comin’ down
I’m comin’ down
On a Sunday morning comin’ down
I’m comin’ down
I’m comin’ down
On a Sunday morning comin’ down

A hot shower and a Percocet
A cold beer and cigaret
The AC and the T.V.

When the work don’t work and the drinks don’t drown
and there’s every indication my direction’s hell bound
I’m comin’ down

I’m comin’ down
I’m comin’ down
On a Sunday morning comin’ down
I’m comin’ down
I’m comin’ down
On a Sunday morning comin’ down
