Track Name: Counting Sleep
Smiling back and forth with me, cigarettes an gum disease, its all about good company, the only kind that you should keep and its that that (which) brings me to my feet, I might die, but I wont loose sleep. Most are sleeping for the morning, we're out drinking for the evening, its the lifestyle choices that keep me playing music, drinking, laughing (and) singing. Its that (which) brings me to my feet, I might die, but I wont loose sleep. Mother always said there's enough time to sleep when you're dead, and if the world's fucked up, well then keep your eyes open. But there's too many problems in this world for just one man. I'm not loosing sleep. Money's hard and booze ain't cheap. Everyone's got words for me. Its all about the plan you see, and they don't like the man they see in me. Bring me to my feet. I might die, but I wont loose sleep. Mother always said there's enough time to sleep when you're dead, and if the world's fucked up, well then keep your eyes open. But there's too many problems in this world for just one man. I'm not loosing sleep.
Track Name: Moving Sucks
Leave it to the concrete (or) street lights in the city to never second guess the flight or flight feelings, those emotions that you get when you're passing through the alley, like how did I get here? How quickly can I leave here? Lessons in first person. Its a learning curve. Left so uninspired, trial by fire, moving sucks. They'll think of me and out loud they'll say, they tried their best, they've done alright by me.
Track Name: Dead Warden
Dead warden dead warden, there's blood around my cell. Dead warden dead warden, they sentenced me to hell.
Track Name: Flip Phone
It was Jen, way in over her head, 26-year-old sister pregnant. I wasn't going to miss this moment. In the waiting room as the family piled in all smiles, smiles and nervous faces. Tired of being tired and up all night in the same clothes we were wearing, I don't want to miss this moment. Were you there did you get to see it? Wish I was there a second before. Wish I didn't have to feel it. Wish I was there a second before. There all night with my family around my grandma's bed, in the same clothes we wearing, don't want to miss this moment. Ive never seen my grandfather cry like that, a grown man broken and ashamed that he was living. Tired of being tired up (and) all night in the same clothes we were wearing, I don't want to miss this moment. Were you there did you get to see it? Wish I was there a second before. Wish I didn't have to feel it. Wish I was there a second before. I swear I'll be there the next time I get the call. Damn it all. Oh god I hate those fucking phone calls. God Dammit all. Damn it all.
Track Name: Put Up, Shut Up
Oh salty dog please tell me stories, I am growing tired of my indifference, and needing augmentation of stories other than my own. I am part of a group of people, mid-twenties, united in indifference. We were never going to save the world, but we all thought we were going to save the world. Cant get over it, wont get over it, why would I want to move on from something like... Reserve the right to throw your hands up, stare at all the younger ones and say, "I'm older now and I'm tired". I haven't lost my ambition, my creative nature's on fire! But I'm down on the process and the fruits of my labor. Cant get over it, wont get over it, why would I want to move on from something like this? Take all they're offering at least most of the time. The bigger the person, the bigger the shoulders to stand upon or hide behind. I miss the ocean (and) the salt on my skin. I think of my mother and hope she isn't holding the weight of the world for someone else again. Optimist. I'm the optimist. Cant get over it, won't get over it, why would I want to move something like...(this)
