Track Name: Days Like This
Days Like This

It's days like this
When I feel like this
When everything bears down on me.

I'm stuck in the middle
Of one endless riddle
All roads lead to indecision.

These things happen so fast
Nothing's ever meant to last
There is still time to change your mind.

I've got resources
there's no wild horses
That could tear me away from you.

But you're on a mission
Destined for collision
You're going to break my heart in two.

Should I have spoken
Or just kept choking
On all the thoughts that were stuck inside my throat?

There's nothing that's broken
Except these emotions
Scattered and pieced together just for you.

It's days like this
When it's you I miss
When I cry and hurt for no one but you...

Track Name: Easy To Crack
Easy To Crack

Too much drama these days
Too much egg on my face
There’s things that I can’t tell you
Words I can’t seem to embrace.

You think I’m easy to crack
You put me flat on my back
I’m sweating whiskey and pissing oil
Eating shame out of a paper sack.

A word to the wise
I can tell as many lies
I can hold you on the floor
And I won’t stop till you can breathe no more.

The day is full of choices and chance
A first look turns to a second glance
A skank just wants a skank - you ruined my birthday cake
Now we’re down to our last dance.

You think I’m easy to crack
Like a long can of happy jack
Going to bust my fever right in two
Just sit back and relax.

A word to the wise
I can tell as many lies
I can hold you on the floor
And I won’t stop till you can breathe no more.

Today I had a revelation
Today I buried my frustration
The magic's over...

Track Name: One And Only
One & Only

I want you back
Like I never have.

I wanna touch you,
I wanna love you.

I can see in your eyes
That you miss me sometimes.

You wanna see me
But you wanna be free...

I'd trade it all for you
I'd give the world to you
You would be all I would dream of
If you were my one and only love.

You say you hate me
But you can't replace me...

I'd trade it all for you
I'd give the world, the whole world to you
You would be all that I'd ever dream of
If you were my one, my one and only love.

One and only
I'm so lonely,
One and only
I'm so lonely...

Track Name: Happy Pills
Happy Pills

Seven days, two minutes
Since my heart broke with you in it,
Locked inside with a padlock
The fruit of love lets the core rot.

Two more days pass like thunder
Now I realize you're your mother,
Indecisive and totally screwed up
Now my free space has turned to bankrupt.

But if you wonder where I've gone
I'm just right up the road,
Wishing that you'd come home.

Another month in my breakdown
Get the feeling you're gone for good now,
Angry rock songs fill my laptop
I could punch a wall or take a zoloft.

But if you've wonder where I've gone
I'm just right up the road,
One pill in hand and one to go...

Track Name: Till The End
Till The End

There's a river near the ocean
Where the mountains change to dust
Where the pieces of my broken dreams still lay.

I've got no one to belong to
There's just me I'm all alone,
Seems I've been that way forever
Tired and on my own.

But you can call me anytime you
Wanna talk or need a friend,
You can tell me anything
I'll be with you till the end;
You have brought me back to life
You have made me smile again,
I just want to make you happy and
Be with you till the end.

I just want a chance to be
The one you want you all alone,
I just want to make you happy
I want to bring you home.

But you can call me anytime
You want to talk or need a friend,
You can tell me anything
I'll be with you till the end;
You have brought me back to life
You have made me smile again,
I just want to make you happy
And be with you till the end.

There's a river near the ocean
Where the mountains change to dust
Where the sun sets as we sit together...

Track Name: Neighbor
Neighbor

I can tell you're feeling lonely
You've been sweeping that same spot for half an hour,
And everything's in shambles but as for me
I've found the love of my life.

And our calls have all died down
He was the one but he ran out and I'm so sorry,
I won't flaunt my happiness I'll just offer you this
Like a true friend...

Since it's a cold dark night
And I'm feeling all right,
But there's a blue blue moon
Always shining on you;
But if you need a friend
To hold your lonely hand,
I will shine on you
Just like that blue blue moon.

Yes, I will shine on you
Just like that blue blue moon.

Track Name: Religion and a Jealous Man
Religion And A Jealous Man

When I'm lost in conversation
I will look the other way,
The fine art of translation
Gets lost in what we try to say.

There's a river that meets the ocean
It was there I was baptised,
There I lost all my sadness
Then I was free to cry.

The loneliness of a hollow tomb
Is that all that meets us in the end?
But I can't stand to see his hands on you
That's religion and a jealous man.

When the lesser road is traveled
A broken heart cab heal itself,
When you smother your emotion
You can conquer any hell.

The emptiness of a hollow tomb
Is that all that waits us in the end?
But I can't stand to see his hands on you
That's religion and a jealous man.

Track Name: I Will Survive Without You
I Will Survive Without You

Feeling this pain
Track Name: Suffocate (Instant Love Song)
Suffocate

I write a song for you
I'm almost over you
Just a word or two
Will get me through.

You string me along
Then make me feel like I don't belong
I've waited far too long
To be so wrong.

When I'm standing here all by myself
Is it wrong to be so lonely?
When I'm with you it goes away
All the pain I've made just seems to fade away.

I dream a dream for you
It's the only thing I know to do
My reasons are clear and true
I believe in you.

I give this hand to you
Forever I will be true
And what would I ever do
Without you?

When I'm standing here all by myself
Is it wrong to be so lonely?
When I'm with you it goes away
All the pain I've made just seems to fade away.

Track Name: My Little Angel
My Little Angel

Why would you lie
When you can say
Anything you want
Act anyway?

Why would you kiss me
If you don't mean
To make me crazy?
Yet I don't see...

The pain you're causing
And what you do,
I'm just a blind man
When it comes to you;
But maybe someday
I just might miss
My little angel
and the devil she is.

Now that you've heard
The words to my song
Do you want to cry
Do you want me gone?

Or are you sorry
Do you feel bad
Or am I the only one
That'll ever be sad?

For pain you're causing
And what you do,
I'm just a blind man
When it comes to you;
But maybe someday
I just might miss
My little angel
And the devil she is.

Track Name: This Is Christmas
This Is Christmas

Yeah, this is Christmas
Time to put a smile on your face,
Time to open presents
Time to gather round.

What do you want for Christmas?
Do you want some presents?
Do you want my love?
Do you want it now?

Well, I'll hide myself right under the tree
And I'll wait for you to open me...

So this is Christmas
And I am your baby,
And I am so happy
Just being with you.

What do you want for Christmas?
Do you want some presents?
Do you want my love?
Do you want it now?

Well, I'll hide myself right under the tree
And I'll wait for you to open me...

Yeah, this is Christmas
Time to put a smile on your face,
Time to open presents
Time to gather round.

Merry Merry Christmas
It's such a lovely phrase,
So open your presents
I can't stand the wait.

Track Name: Zip It/Unzip It
Zip It/Unzip It

You can zip it and unzip it
You can zip it or unzip it
You can zip it and unzip it
You can zip it or unzip it
You can tie it in a knot you can knot it in a tie
You can knot it in a zip it's as easy as pie
When you look into her eyes you can see a pretty fly
If the others don't like it they can zip it or unzip it
They can zip it or unzip it
They can zip it or unzip it
If it makes 'em feel good.

I got a girl underneath the mistletoe
She's got missiles on her toes
She's got toe jam up her nose
She's the kind of girl you wanna take to the picture show
But if the cat ain't a kitten then she probably won't go
She's a real kind of girl who really rocks my world
She zips it and unzips it till the oyster's in the pearl
Till the fries are in the curl
Till the tilt is in the whirl
You can zip it and unzip it
Till it makes you feel good.

Well you can zip it in the morning
You can zip it in the day,
You can eat a Butterfinger
Or a Milky Way;
You can leave it for her mother
But she probably don't know
That we zip it and unzip it
And flip it like a midget
It's Devo that sings 'Whip It'
We struggle and we fidget
The zip unzips the engine
For everybody zips it
Cause it makes 'em feel good.

You can zip it and unzip it
And everybody lips it
Nobody seems to get it
If we could all unzip it
It would make us feel good.
