Track Name: BBQ
No you don't like anything
I know that you hate everything
invite you to our barbecue
oh if you'd come it would be so cool

hey, yeah, hey, yeah, hey, yeah
so long

now you're here you're here to stay
at least until you get away
we think you'll learn to like it here
if you find a way to disappear

hey, hey, hey
so long

would you stand
get in line
take a number
take up your time

wish that you'd just leave me be
'cause even I don't want to be with me
and if you let me in the club
it means your standards aren't high enough
life is hard and much too short
this food is bad and there's not enough of it
I'm here right now but not to stay
this isn't home it's just some place

hey... so long

would you stand?
get in line
all I wanted was to have a good time
with your halo
made of glue
watch out the window
we'll be home soon
watch out the window
we'll be home soon
we'll be home soon
Track Name: Comfort
If I brought to you some comfort would it be enough
to make up for the trouble of having me around
on this side of town
just stirring up the past and dancing up the devil

Oh, but who'll be your warm when you are cold
and who'll be your friend when you get old?
just you

when you're walking down the street
just following your feet
and you're still half drunk
and the other half's asleep
there's nothing left to spend
and what you need cannot be earned
and you tell yourself again that no you'll never learn
oh just who'll be your warm when you are cold
and who'll be your friend when you get old?
just the places that you've been and the money that spend
the clothes that you have worn and the people that you've met
are you

If I offer you some solace do you want it in a bottle or a bag
or just someone to spend a few precious hours with
they're only special 'cause I spent them with you
oh you, only you, are the only one that really ever knew

when you're walking down the street just following your feet
and you're still half drunk and the other half's asleep
and there's nothing left to spend
and what you need cannot be earned
then you tell yourself again that you know you'll never learn
oh just who'll be your warm when you are cold
and who'll be your friend when you get old
just the places that you've been
and the money that you spend
clothes that you have worn
and the people that you've met
are you
only you
are the only one that really ever knew
that you, only you
are the only one that'll really ever know you

if I brought to you some comfort has it been enough
to make up for the trouble of having me around
on this side of town
just stirring up the past
and dancing up the devil
Track Name: Float
Wanna buy a car? Wanna buy a boat?
oh the one don't run and the other don't float
I kinda like getting older 'cause I'm never gonna die
I've seen a lot of things that don't look pretty
sometimes I think that life is so shitty
but all it takes to make me smile is a smile from you

I don't wanna work, I just wanna play
I'm not hurting anyone strumming my guitar all day
and in my pajamas I wanna play piana
when I'm in my birthday suit
I wanna play the flute
all I really want ta da is blow my harmonica
I don't wanna work I wanna play, hey hey

All the other kids they went to college
took out loans to certify their knowledge
but you can't pay anyone to tell ya what I know
I sometimes think I'm too in love with myself
but I gotta love someone and there's no one else
who understands the chorus in my head

Somewhere in between all the ups and downs
oh you're stuck standing still or moving around
well, everywhere you go is where you are
So do you wanna buy a car? Wanna buy a boat?
oh the one don't run and the other don't float
I kinda like getting older 'cause I'm never gonna die
Track Name: Enough
I've always been a strange sentimental
the streets I'm an angel, the house I'm a devil
but don't try to be bursting into my bubble
it won't take you long to find out I'm just trouble
I saw from the start that you're bad as me
sour on the inside but outside you're sweet
we're stuck in a rut, spinning the wheels
I don't know 'bout you but I'm getting out of here
so
Go on get out of my hair
we're just tangled up there is no use in trying
to revive what has already died

When everything falls apart it's just me and my guitar
and it'd be fine if you'd harmonize with me
but you're off on your own beat and in a different key
do you love me or just that I do your laundry
oh you do the cooking and I'll do the dishes
but what you're feeding me is not that delicious
so
Go on get out of my life
I will not be your wife
you don't own me
I don't owe you a thing
here take back your ring
I don't want it
I'd just as soon pawn it

So is this how it ends?
Time I'm leaving again
do you think that we can still be friends?
(probably not)
so
Go on get out of my hair
we're just tangled up there is no use in trying
to revive what has already died
so leave and give me back my keys
and take back all your stuff
I don't want it, I don't need it
I've had enough
Track Name: Downright Evil
mama was crazy but you're downright evil
she went from bad to worse when she met you
now she's gone to heaven
where they don't let your kind in
oh she's left the world that treated her so cruel

how could you take a soul so shattered
oh so fragile and in need
and turn her broken thoughts against her
and leave her lying like a dog out in the street

mama was crazy but you're a vampire
you tore her down and left her drained
I watched the light go from her eyes lord
now she's gone and you can't cause her no more pain

mama was crazy but you're downright evil
she went from bad to worse when she met you
now she's gone to heaven where they don't let your kind in
oh she's left the world that treated her so cruel
Track Name: To The Full
She was left on her own at just 16
she already saw things you'd never want to see
she'd have run away from home
but there was no home to leave
out on the road in the mud and the cold
the sky opened up and started to pour down
but she just kept walking, singing this song

May the joy that you find in this world
outweigh the pain of getting born
and when those angels call you home may you know
that you lived it to the full

there's times she was out of her mind
poppin' more than vitamins, drinking fortified wine
sometimes you've just got to settle for a little piece of mind
she had a child then she had three more
raised 'em all up, saw 'em all out the door
and as each one left she gave them these words

May the joy that you find in this world
outweigh the pain of getting born
and when those angels call you home may you know
that you lived it to the full

and she tattooed over her scars
learned how to laugh in the dark
and her constant companions were the blues and this old guitar
and sometimes I still hear her voice
when it's dark and there's no better choice
than to pick it back up and start playing that song

may the joy that you bring to this world
outweigh the pain of getting born
and when those angels call you home may you know
that you lived it to the full
you made houses into homes
you never held back your love
and we're still singing your songs
Track Name: Stalker Ballad
Got you right where I want you
got you right in my sights
got you right where I can haunt you
got you right in my sights
where I can keep an eye on you
I'm watching everything you do
you might call it stalking you
maybe you should get a life

don't you think it's strange how I keep running into you this way
oh it must be fate how I keep running into you this way
you happened to be walking out
as I was driving past your house
for only the eleventh time today

you must not have gotten all those letters that I wrote
you have not responded to all those letters that I wrote
did you like the picture of me that I tossed on your balcony
or the one I nailed to your front door?

I have friend requested all the people that you know
oh yes I still pester all the people that you know
I left my wife and child at home
and paid five dollars at the door
'cause I heard that you might be at the show

don't want any other, I've got to have you by my side
one way or another, I'm going to have you by my side
I love you so much I could die
we'll be together by and by
when stalking leads to murder suicide

that's not funny
we should change it
how about he falls out of the tree that he's spying on her from
and gets strangled by his binoculars
I like it
that's the funny ending
Track Name: Asshole
I'm in a bad bad mood
can't think of nothing I really want to do
and all the jokes I never told you
and all the punch lines don't connect
everyone wants to get theirs
even your friends sometimes don't fight fair
all the things they never told you
and now they say well I just thought you knew
has got me in a bad mood

they say ignorance is bliss
well maybe ignorance is just avoidance
of the inevitable truth
will come out and wash up and get found

I can't forget those eyes
all your half-burnt lying by omission
I can't forget that you're kind of an asshole
but I remember how to just let it go
so I just let it go

there goes my bad mood
I ain't wasting any more life on you
I'll move on and write a new song
because after all I'm kind of an asshole, too
Track Name: the Ghosts
I'm sitting up with the ghosts
just what we're doing I don't know
I'm so tired of thinking
I shouldn't be thinking about you at all
I forget not to think of your face
trying to get out of this place
just sends my senses so far inside
deep into outer space

I'd carry you home in my hearse
if I only knew where you were
are you up in the sky? out in the night?
wherever you are, are they treating you kind?
If I were to run into you
there's no telling what I might do
would you step off the path
would you bury the ax
that's lately been breaking my back

So I'm staying up with the ghosts
'cause they're the only ones who know
time just stands still when you're waiting to heal
up enough to put weight on the bones
feels like I'm running away
haven't left this room in days
lately I'm talking to ghosts
'cause they're the only ones who know
Track Name: Stoner Boy
I thought you were the greatest thing
the way you talked, the way you'd sing
the way that everyone seemed nicer when you were around
the way you touched my hand when you passed me the pipe
oh everything seemed all right
we were young and learning to have fun
and you taught me so much

I wanted you I wanted you so bad, so bad
I wanted you I wanted you so bad I didn't know just what to do

You stood on the table and took the erasers
and clapped them together by the smoke detector
and set off the fire alarm 'cause you were bored
so we all got out of class and we smoked cigarettes
hiding underneath the Big Toy and we didn't get caught
'cause we didn't give a fuck and neither did our parents
all they could do would be suspend us
and then we could stay home and make weird shit into bongs
like the traffic pylon we stole from the mall
that one time that we went there together

we were young and learning to have fun
and you taught me so much
I wanted you I wanted you so bad, so bad
I wanted you I wanted you so bad I didn't know just what to do

Stoner boy your pants are saggin' down
but it's not 'cause you're a prison bitch
it's because you're just to skinny and your hair's too long
and you're way too cool, too cool for this song

'cause we were young and learning to have fun
and you taught me so much
I wanted you I wanted you so bad, so bad
I wanted you I wanted you
so bad I didn't know just what I had
just what I had

Stoner boy your pants are saggin' down
but it's not 'cause you're a prison bitch
it's because you're just to skinny and your hair's too long
and you're way too cool, too cool for this song
Track Name: the Why's
It took too long to write this song
I had to wander far from home
I rode way too hard for much too long
and slept out in the cold
I had to find out on my own
what no one else could show me
how the world gets off with being so damn cruel
and why it hurts my pride to be a fool

Heard it from a friend of mine
who heard it on the local vine
that someone stole a certain part of you
and it was someone that you wanted them to...

So I'll go back to my room
and put on my favorite perfume
and sit there feeling mean and smelling pretty
and do my best to step out of the
bull piles up so fast that one needs wings
to rise above and not to stink
and we may all me sinners but we still need saints
and no one's hanging up to take the blame
because the guilty ones are not who wear the shame

Now I've found a place to hide
a shelter from the rising tide
to look back out my eyes and see all I survived
it took too long to write this song
I'm grey and faded to my bones
and I still haven't made it out of my hometown
but I've still known the cold hard ground
and feeling lost with all you've found
and I still don't know why the world can be so cruel
but I guess it's not so bad to be a fool
oh I'm really not so bad
I'm just a fool
Track Name: Ready
I'm leaving in the morning
won't be back again
I will cross the wide river to the far western lands
there's devils in the details
a rumbling in the sky
the moon's hanging low and the water is high

I have been every place
walked every road
worn out my shoes but never my soul
'cause I've known you before
and I'll see you again
when we meet up someday in the far western lands

all the things that were mine consider yours
I won't be longing to things anymore
I'm trading this boat in 'cause it's full of holes
so I'll grow back my wings like a child
and just fly

I'm ready to go but I'll not hurry off
'til we sing the last song and drink the last drop
oh there's more where that came from
but where's it all go?
sometimes we're sinking and sometimes we float

I've finished my work here
the mending is done
I'me weary of patching the tears I have worn
I'm trading this boat in 'cause it's full of holes
and I'm tired
so I'll grow back my wings like a child and just fly

When the last night is over
our new lives will dawn
you will go on without me
I'll go on alone
for awhile here I loved you
and here we were home
and for awhile here you'll stay dear
but I'm ready to go
Track Name: Dead Roots
I break my fast with the hair of the dog
tell my baby get back home
roll my soul in a bottle of fog
tell my baby get back home
each day worse than the day before
tell my baby get back home
since my sugar ain't sweet on me anymore
begged him not to go
oh I begged him not to go

Days drag on one to the next
break my fast with the hair of the dog
I feel I'm cursed, Lord, I don't feel blessed
roll my soul in a bottle of fog
all that I touch turns on me
tell my baby get back home
pull back your hand and just leave me be
begged him not to go
oh I begged him not to go

He ain't coming back through that door
broke my fast with the hair of the dog
so I'm going out, what am I waiting for?
rolled my soul in a bottle of fog
the nights too long and the beds too cold
tell my baby to get back home
I'm too damn young to feel so damn old
begged him not to go
oh I begged him not to go

No more staring at the wall I'm getting out of this chair
break my fast with the hair of the dog
it's the last time I'm walking down these stairs
roll my soul in a bottle of fog
I'm pulling up dead roots, I'll leave it all behind
tell my baby no one's home
Nothing left here worth another ounce of my time
guess it's time to go
oh I guess it's time to go
guess it's time to go
