Cringe
Wide eyed.
Knee deep in surprise.
Just below your thighs the temperature drops 5 degrees.
Your stand-by flight has just arrived.
Tongue-tied bleeding from your eyes.
Even christ himself would cringe at the sight of your scars
While you're counting sheep,
I'll count my lucky stars.
You were the last good thing I ever saw.
I lost it all
I lost it all
Burned out on 2 hours of shut-eye.
Eyes glazed at the thought of the next 8 hours.
Headwind cold rain to wake me.
You were the last good thing I ever saw.back to top
Cop
Wonder what it was that made you this way.
Maybe as a baby you dropped your rattle
And it still rattles you to this day.
You better practice your evil looks in the mirror,
They don't work on me.

Slowly crawling up from the down low.
The other cops still call you 'fatso'.
Short fuse and a top to blow.
Unhappy wife.
Shitty life.
Hit the bottle.
Your whole world dropped from under you.
Left you with sorry excuses.
Left you with meaningless things to prove,
Like why you became a cop.
Why did you become a cop?

Wonder what it was that made you this way.
As a boy your toys were taken away.
And it still toys with you to this day.
You better practice your evil looks in the mirror,
They don't work on me.

Slowly crawling up from the down low.
The other cops still call you 'fatso'.
Short fuse and a top to blow.
Unhappy wife.
Shitty life.
Hit the bottle
Your whole world dropped from under you.
Left you with sorry excuses.
Left you with meaningless things to prove,
Like why you became a cop.
Why did you become a cop? shut the fuck up.

After my court date,
I'll forget about you.
I'll tell my cellmate.
I'll forget about you.
After the jail break,
I'll forget about you.
After I'm through singing this song,
I'll forget about you, I'll forget about you!back to top
San Francisco
Choking on the thought of leaving,
Drinking to keep from sobbing
4pm, 4 dollar pints - sfo - the time and price.

With all my happiness aborted, the pa painfully starts boarding
I sink deep - 30 thousand feet into my window seat - electric chair
And I was drinking you goodbye
A heart floats in the bay
From sour home chicago
I hear it beating far away
There's no telling what I'll do
If I don't return to you.

Hopeful thoughts of soon returning,
Can't put out my stomach burning.
Plastic wings and plastic smiles
Unsalted peanuts stretch my miles.

Choking on the thought of leaving,
Drinking to keep from heaving
5pm 5 dollar pints - hellbound airlines - time and price.
And I was drinking you goodbye
A heart floats in the bay
From sour home chicago
I hear it beating far away
There's no telling what I'll do
If I don't return to you.

I was drinking you goodbye
A heart floats in the bay
From sour home chicago
I hear it beating far away
There's no telling what I'll do
If I don't return to you.back to top
Nose over Tail
Crack my head open on your kitchen floor
To prove to you that I have brains
Meanwhile tin men are led by little girls
Down golden roads that lead to nowhere

Fine time to fake a seizure
Feel your mouth on mine, you're saving me

Whatever happened to that silly dream you had?
I want to make it real
I'd love to rub your back
Like a plane crash that never hits the ground
I fall in love with you
I'm nose over tail for you
Your voice like the sound of sirens to a house on fire
You're saving meback to top
As You Were
Stale as a 2 day half full beer
Cigarette boats float around in here
A field in my gut lacking sunshine
Put down like a teenagers first drink I cough up compliments I think
You're better off walking away while you still can

She was passing through to climb a hill
As you slipped and slid on my gut spill
My better half was praying for you to fall

Rotten like a 3 week half full glass of breast milk, drunken off my ass
I would give anything to erase the past nine years of my life
Put down like a prostitute in court
All liberty soon to abort like my sanity, like thoughts of you

She was passing through to climb a hill
As you slipped and slid on my gut spill
My better half was praying for you to fall
Praying for you to fall
So pitiful
Praying for you to fall
I'm fuckin' pitiful

Praying for you to fall
So pitiful
Praying for you to fall
So fuckin' pitifulback to top
Enjoy Your Day
So where'd you go?
How was your vacation home?
Well obviously you were busy, too busy for me
So this is how you leave me?
I'm broken hearted on the floor,
My tears seep through the crack under my door
Where I am locked in, shut down, I'm so tired of picking myself up off the ground.

So happy valentine's day
I hope the sun's out in new york
I hope he bought you roses
I hope he bought you roses
So happy valentine's day
I hope the sun's out in new york
I hope he bought you roses
I hope he bought you rosesback to top
Clavicle
Been on top of the world since about six months ago,
Marking the first time I laid eyes on you.
I lost all train of thought as I entered the room,
Saw what looked like really good food then I saw you and so did you.

I wanna wake up naked next to you,
Kissing the curve in your clavicle.
Kissing your clavicle.

Been on top of the world since about 1 week ago,
Marking a time when I was drunk enough to talk to you.
I lost all train of thought as your eyes met mine,
Told you I thought you were gorgeous, you gave me your phone number I gave you mine.
Before you left I said that you can bet I'll be bothering you soon
You said no bother, please do

I've called you twice
It's been a hellish fight to not think about you all the time
Sitting around waiting for your call

I wanna wake up naked next to you,
Kissing the curve in your clavicle.
Kissing your clavicle.

I wanna wake up naked next to you,
Kissing the curve in your clavicle.back to top
My Little Needle
I'll come down to get you high
Or maybe sing you a lullabye
Sing you to sleep - a sleep you'll never wake from
Sing you to coma so to speak

When I fall down I'll fall apart
Trade in my bike for a shopping cart
And beg change from a world that needs some
Like I need someone
So where are you my little needle?
The stack's been burned away but I'm so inebriated that I cannot see
Three feet in front of me
Between the moon and you, lunacy is setting in

Lately I've been feeling dead inside
Like my guts have dried up and died
But every night I water them back to life
Yeah every night I water them back to life

When I fall down I'll fall apart
Trade in my bike for a shopping cart
And beg change from a world that needs some
I'm tired of sleeping alone
So where are you my little needle?
The stack's been burned away but I'm so inebriated that I cannot see
Three feet in front of me
Between the moon and you, lunacy is setting inback to top
Southern Rock
I cant believe my hearts still pounding
I can't believe how close I came
And meanwhile heavens falling
The fallen angels flown away
And that'll be me someday.
With stolen wings make evil ways,
Straight south with the keys to the pearly gates

Hard to believe my heart stopped pounding
Hard to believe I played this game,
My worst nightmares became real
I got so scared that I forgot my name
And that'll be me someday.
With stolen wings and evil ways,
Straight south with the keys to the pearly gatesback to top
Message from Kathlene
I guess I'll always stop and see you
And we'll run into each other's lives
Yeah, I guess. although it tears me up inside.
Everytime it burns my eyes with tears.
But I know you're worth the pain.
I've so much more to gain by waiting for you.

You're going away but you're not going far
So if he decides to leave you alone and crying,
You know I'm still here, the faithful one,
Waiting for a message from kathlene
Then I'll come.. faster..
Than I ever thought that I could run..
Cause i...
I need you more than I ever thought that I could need someone
Someone someone someone else

I know I will always stop and see you
And we'll run into each other's fucked up lives
Yeah, I guess. although it tears me up inside.
Everytime it burns my eyes with tears.
But your waking up is the start of my lost cause.
And then you decide to leave me alone and crying.
But you know I'm still here, the faithful one,
Waiting for a message from kathlene
Then I'll come.. faster..
Than I ever thought that I could run..
Cause i...
I need you more than I ever thought that I could need someone
Someone someone someone elseback to top
Trouble Breathing
You told me that you want to die
I said I've been there myself more than a few times
And I go back every once in a while
You called me lucky, you.. you called me lucky.

You said tonight is a wonderful night to die
I asked you how you could tell you told me to look at the sky
Look at all those stars,
Look at how goddamn ugly the stars are.

It's one or another
Between a rope and a bottle
I can tell you're having trouble breathing

Cuz you'll never be ok
You'll never be ok
(you'll always be in pain)
You'll always feel this way
Cuz things they never work out right
(the wrong way the lonely way)
You'll always be in pain

You told me that the daylight burned you
And that the sunrise was enough to kill you
I said maybe you're a vampire
You said it's quite possible I feel truly dead inside.

Cuz you'll never be ok
You'll never be ok
(you'll always be in pain)
You'll always feel this way
Cuz things they never work out right
(the wrong way the lonely way)
You'll always be in pain

Don't forget to let your life rot you inside out.
Don't forget to let your life rot you inside out.
Don't forget to let your life rot you inside out.back to top
Sorry About That
It hasn't been that long
Since we drank to the sunset.. until it was gone
And down with it went our pain and fear
As we slowly broke contact more and more with every beer
And we passed out in each other's arms
Both admitting we'd never felt better
Never felt so warm
But awoke in each other's eyes
Without wearing a stitch of clothing
We were both deeply in disguise
And maybe I just set aside the fact that you were broken hearted
In my own special selfish way
And if I hadn't set aside the fact that you were broken hearted
Hell knows where your heart would be today
Maybe with me

It seems like it's been so long since we kissed through the darkness until it was dawn
Up with it came our pain and fear
That we'd already lost each other
We both knew that the end was near
Maybe I just set aside the fact that you were broken hearted
In my own special selfish way
And if I hadn't set aside the fact that you were broken hearted
Hell knows where your heart would be today
Maybe with me
Maybe with me
Maybe with me maybe with me maybe with me maybe with meback to top
