Track Name: Record Breaks
Hey I turn this old radio on, just to play one last rock n roll song. Until the lights go out and the sun comes up, you know we’re still wide-awake. And my mother always told me son don’t you ever go on changing, but when I first heard rock n roll music I’ve never been the same, oh no.
And I go out my front door with nothing but a dream that was bigger than the world it seemed to me. It gets bigger than this. And I never thought I’d be here when I was just a bit younger, it was a different place singing different songs and now im wide awake.
You wanna go home, turn on your phone. You’re not alone. Turn on your radio. Take the better way home.
Sit alone on certain nights never care to change until the record breaks and I don’t know and I don’t know, a better way home. Sippin on your glass like a champagne bible. Take another pass, rock n roll survival and I do know and I do know, a better way home.
And I never thought I’d be here when I was just a bit younger, it was a different place singing different songs and now im wide awake.
Turn off your phone and turn your radio on. You don’t have to sing alone. Honey, baby I could take you dancing. I wanna bring you home, I could show you all my favorite songs. So turn off your phone and turn your radio on, cause you don’t have to…
Track Name: My Appetite
I always feel like you’re holding my hand, I always feel like you’re right behind me breathing heavy down my neck. I always say that Ill be right there, Im just caught up in another nightmare of playing the same two chord songs.
This cities bigger than the world at night when you’re away. You’re too busy and Im to stubborn to change.
I always feel like, I always feel like an open heart. You always spark up, you always spark up my appetite.
I always wanted to play in a band, I always wanted you right behind me telling me “baby, I’m your biggest fan.” I always say that Ill be right there, im just caught up in another nightmare of playing the same two chord songs.
This cities… chorus
I’ve been in love (hes been in love before). I’ve been ive been I’ve been a bit stranger (he’s been a stranger). I’ve been feeling low (get up get up get up uh huh). I cant I cant I cant get higher (I cant I cant I cant get higher).
Track Name: University Garden
Half asleep and caffeinated, the drink last night was overrated. Headaches come and headaches go. I met her one day, in a University garden. We played a song and parted. Lovers come and go.
Don’t you know. She’s got me stuttering. Don’t you know. Loves a funny thing.
The world is filled with incredible feelings. A mile high novel Im always reading. Some pages torn, some of them grow. A tragic story with a lesson worth learning. A word you wrote without knowing the meaning, some words are beautiful, and some are…
Cold. Shes got me shivering. Don’t you know. Loves a funny thing.
Each morning you wake with a new smile on your face. Each night you sleep with a dream of a different day. Kristin is a mother who likes an ale thick and radiant. She says “honey you’re doing great”, but she knows I’m fakin’ it. We could talk for hours about the betterment of the world. She’ll make you feel like a flower. Blossoming.
Blooming in the rain. Don’t you know. Loves a funny thing. Love can help you grow. Love can make you sing. And then you learn to let it go. And then you learn to let if go.
Track Name: Marrowstone Daze
Since I was young Ive been tripping over roots. The taste on my tongue, the salty seas and honey bees flying over my head. Sand between my toes sing songs till I go to bed. Wake up and do it over again.
But it seems we knew exactly what to do through all of our days. Oh and the lives we lived freedom in mind as kids. The Marrowstone daze.
There was ladybug hill, but then the spiders took it over. Four leaf clovers the thrill of jumping up and down between my cousins my mom. Would run up screaming “come back,” I’d just smile and run off to my imagination land.
Pictures of my old dirt road leading to my country home is all that I need. Sitting on the beach at night watching all the boats go by the stars in the sky.
March like clay toys, marrowstone daze. Boys will be boys, day will be day, and the night is always young. Then we grew cold with the night. The sand in my locket I kept in my pocket so simple.
Track Name: Cherry Sweet Blood
She’s my life, I got my manhood when I was dripping cherry sweet blood. Lick you knife clean after the slaughter, that’s when I think I’m falling in love.
You tiptoe through street lights in a town like a graveyard, it’s hard to be alone sometimes. Walking on eggshells in my room at night. The grim reaper comes and takes my life. I got my manhood when I was dripping cherry sweet blood.
It’s raining heavy love, the sky above. It’s raining heavy love. The summer time kind that you find when the heatstroke makes you loose your mind. The lovely ache you feel when the sunshine makes you long for another day.
They dam the water with mother’s good earth, and turn the rivers life to blood. I turn the corner the times have changed. Satellites tell it from above. I read the papers it’s all bad news love, don’t bother tripping over the flood. The sky breaks open with your touch, and I think I’m falling in love.
Oh love, oh love, I think I’m falling in love.
It’s raining heavy love, from the sky above.
She’s my life, I got my manhood when I was dripping cherry sweet blood. Lick you knife clean after the slaughter, that’s when I ... that’s when I’m falling in love.
Track Name: No Direction
As I sleep I dream of things that open up my mind, it makes me feel like I cant see when Im not high. If only I could make believe that its not real I would not need all these things to make it see clear.
Told you it’d be right never to open your eyes told you would be right told you would be right. Now you’ve lost your sight cause youre not using your mind. Driving with no lights driving with no lights.
When im feeling overwhelmed I look aroung and see everyone I know and love, the friends that I meet. And even when we’re all not there we still have everything that we need to be aware and that all I see.
Track Name: What's the Difference
I’ve been a stranger in a lonely world. I fell apart and it felt so good. I’ve been a beggar in a giving house accepting charity for being me. I’ve felt stricken weak and tired. I’ve felt diseased like I was a liar. I woke like a child on his birthday or an old man who thought he was dead.
Whats the difference anyway you know I’m starting over everyday. That’s the secret if you feel it. That’s the key just believe it.
Ill admit that im not all that wise, but you cant say I never tried. Each morning I wake with a new smile on my face. I’m just glad that I never gave up. I’m just laughing cause I was so dumb. Like a preacher teaching textbooks or Sunday sermon full of jokes.
Chorus
I never started believing in myself until we built our own kind of fire to keep us all in good health.
You know you gotta keep it going. Gotta hold on gotta hold on to it now.
Track Name: Flip Phone
Flip phone rests beside your head, but its out of style and you don’t care. Youre expecting a call from someone special. You’ve been overwhelmed by a feeling, life always gives you a deck and you don’t know how to play the hand.
So you walk straight to your favorite rest stop. The man at the counter he knows your name by heart and he knows you. He knows that you are lonely and he knows that you’re cold.
Baby it’s been a while since we made love. It’s been a while since we played rough. Dancing with each other in the moonlight. When the sun comes up as fast as the moon falls we play this game like a pool ball. Looking to find the triangle to keep us together. Triangle to keep us together.
But you’re doing, youre doing youre doing it wrong. I don’t need that, give me feedback. You try so hard to keep us together but youre doing it wrong.
Track Name: Right Wrong
You told me to fly and gave me some wings. You gave me a voice and told me to sing for you. You wrote me a sign and taught me to read, grew me some legs so that I could leave without you. And you said…
Right wrong whos fault that’s all there’ll ever be, there’ll ever be for me. Yes no, black white, there’s no grey.
You wrote me a check dated next week, the future is a fortune that Ill never reap with you. Started a business tying shoes and bunny eared mine so I walked down the street without you. And you said…
Right wrong whos fault that’s all there’ll ever be, there’ll ever be for me. Yes no, black white, there’s no grey. As sun rises night falls that all there’ll ever be, there’ll ever be for me. Cloudy eyes, clear skies, there’s no grey.
You gave me a watch and time will take it away. I said until then that I would stay with you. You move like a queen on a chessboard. My clumsy hands broke the hourglass and sand poured all over you. And you said…
Track Name: Regret
It's been so long since I’ve felt anything besides regret, I’m just a tin man in the rain. As spring roles in I role away for I don’t know what to say. At least tomorrow is a new day.
But you have me and I have everything to give to you. The sun will shine on you you’re mine. I need you in my life.
I'm giving up on dreams that I can't see in my sleep. Random thoughts and memories. But in my heart I know its time to just move on I cant rewind. My broken wings will one day fly.
Sometimes we hate mistakes that we have made, but we have to move on. In the end you will have wished that you had stayed, but I wont drag this on.
Track Name: Beads of Light
I can’t relate to the way that you live your life. You see it all so strange I see it other ways. You’re covered by the weight of stress in your own mind. You have no time to waste. Why can’t you see the…
Beads of light dripping cold from your eyes. Just sit tight and wait, waste your time, hesitate. I eat I sleep I breathe and I dream and this is all there is for me.
You can’t read between the lines, you just see black and white. You’re afraid of the dark, the dark parts of my life. You think I’m always wrong, but I know you’re never right. Experience the night. Why can’t you see the beads of light…
Track Name: Station
I was born by the station, and just like the train my heart keeps racing. I was raised by the ocean, and just like the waves I’ve been breaking. Over and over again I’ve been mistaken for a fool. We move along, and it’s fifteen miles of coal-fired power in a graveyard. We move along.
You’ve been waiting, and just like the waitress smile you’ve been fakin’. You and I fell apart on the long walk home. We still sing this song. and it’s five long years of cold hearted love in a graveyard. We still sing this song.
I know something, something is going on (we move along). I know something something’s going wrong (yeah we still move along). I know something’s going wrong.
You died by that station and every day and night I watch that train role by. I know someday I’m gonna get on board, until then I’m waiting. And its fifteen miles of coal-fired power and a graveyard. We move along.
Black shoes black dress bury me on the shore (and move along). I know something’s something’s going on (yeah we still move along). Until I die I know you were doing me wrong.
