Track Name: So Low
V1
Wake up alone
remember what planet I’m on
staring at the mask
in the looking glass
time and again
seems that I will never win
the face in the mirror
ain’t looking back
and it says

Chorus
I wish it would be five am forever
The sun
Rises above the cold cold ground
And I’m so low
I’ll be right there right there to chase it down

V2
You’ll wake up alone
I won’t call you on the telephone
Cause I’m too caught up in self pitty
And myself and myself
And that’s just too bad
you were the best thing
that I’ve ever had
the man in the mirror he just laughs
and he says

Chorus
Track Name: Amanda Song
V1
Well I mourn in the morning
Cause I woke up alone
Though I still find your hair
woven in my pillow
I scorn myself
Thinking about the final blow
Amanda where did you go?

V2
You should of let go my heart
Before you walked away
But we said everything
that we had to say
maybe we’ll be together
again some day
Amanda what do you say


Chr
Some people gonna sing the blues
Amanda I got a different tune for you
Some people gonna sing the blues
Amanda not you
Track Name: Destinies Unknown
V1
Not like I want to spend my summer
In these same black pants
But I’m needing sympathy
and I’m needing romance
so I’m stepping out to Destinies Unknown
Nothing turned out like I planned it
It’s the story of my life
So I’m stepping out to Destinies Unknown

Chr
All the rain in the world
Couldn’t quench my desire to grow
I’ve got all that I need
right here under my hat
all the tears that night
couldn’t drown my heart and soul
So I’m stepping out to Destinies Unknown

V2
My parents warned me no one cares
Guess I’ll find out the way that’s hard
But when did idealism become
Such a dirty dirty word
Is it absurd to have romantic fantisies
About the way things should be
they can fool you
but they can’t fool me

Chr
Track Name: Forever
I’m gonna love you forever Hold you in my arms while you’re asleep
I hear the sky and it cries for me
Watched you dream and feel you breath
Cause when you awake we both will leave

And when you told that little lie
that lined with pines was the road to good bye
and on the way home I saw all of your trees
and it reminded me
yes it reminded me

Together we stand but soon we’ll part
I can hear the cries of are broken hearts
Shut the door after I kissed your hand
Imagining you in some foreign land

And all the churches that line the roads
couldn’t conjure the faith for you I hold
in a sacred place deep inside my soul
that’s gonna love you forever

Take our sun and warm that foreign sand
Even if you’re in the hands of some foreign man
Cause our ties will never be severed
I’m gonna love you forever
Track Name: Drive Me Drinkin
Well I like whiskey and I like wine
That’s why I drink it all the time
That’s why some time it’s hard to drive
That’s why it’s hard to stay alive

But for you girl I will do my best
Just rest your head on my chest
As I smoke this cigarette
And fall in love with you
Track Name: By My Side
I’m drowning in a sea
Of incomplete ideas and case-less cd’s
Desperately searching for my patience
Smothered by all of your obligations
And that makes me frustrated
Makes me blame everything else and
Makes me say that I hate it

But you
You still stick
By my side
Every day or night
But you
You still stick by my side
But soon you will be gone

I wish I could grant every wish
Serve it to you on a golden dish
at least until you broke my back
now you got my heart
and won’t give it back

But you
You still stick
By my side
Every day or night
But you
You still stick by my side
But soon you will be gone

That makes me frustrated
Makes me blame everything else
And then I say that I hate it
Track Name: So Alone
When you’re feeling so alone
You got no one to call your own
And you’d love to come along
And you’d love to take her home
When no one calls on the phone
And your skins hanging off your bones
When you’re feeling so alone

When you’re feeling so alone
You don’t have any friends
But they’d love to come along
And they’d love to make amends
You’d love to be her man
But you don’t know where to stand
When you’re feeling so alone

I don’t want to feel that way again
My troubles never end

When you’re feeling so alone
You trap yourself in a hole
You’d love to hold on
You’d love to keep control
You didn’t fall from the grace of good
You’re just misunderstood
Track Name: Supposed To Be Sober
Supposed to be sober
but the walls are still breathing
and if they could talk
they would tell me you’re leaving
If I ever listened
I might believe them too
Roll me over
My heart is bleeding too
Roll over baby still love you

Bar tender serve me one more
So I can wake up on the floor
My wallet empty
My head split in two
Roll me over
My heart bleeds for you
Roll over baby you love me too

It’s been four years
and I’ve failed to realize
Soon you’ll be gone
No surprise

Supposed to be sober
but the world’s still turning
my money is getting spent
cigarettes are still burning
oh baby
I’ve learned a thing or two
Roll me over
my heart bleeds for you
roll over baby
you still love me too

It’s been four years
and I’ve failed to realize
Soon you’ll be gone
No surprise
Track Name: I Wanna be Your STD
I want to be your infection
Be your fatal disease
I want to be everything you want
I want to be everything you need
I want to be all that you desire
I want to be all that you know
I want to be your demon baby
Your monkey for sure

I … I want to let you down
Let you go down on me
Repeat

I want to be your wheel of fortune baby
Put you in Jeopardy
Right now the price is right
For you to come home with me
We can play the dating game
Out on the Holly Wood square
Bend you over smack you on the ass
Who wants to be a millionaire?

I … I want to let you down
Let you go down on me
Repeat
Track Name: I'm Still Here
Searching for some answers
but the questions I don’t know
seems just like I’m chasing cancer
take another fresh breath of smoke
All the days that I faced ain’t
sucked the life out of my song
all the time that I’ve wasted
with my face stuck in a bong

baby I’m too weird to be you’re man
and this I understand
but I’m still here and I can
scratch your back
and hold your hand
and make sweet love to you tonight

Whistling a song
that I had stuck in my head
Last night while I was sleeping
I dreamt a symphony in bed
And when I was awakened
I was shaken from my song
By my roommate cooking bacon
In my bed I was all alone

Baby I’m too cool to be your friend
Don’t want to lie don’t want to pretend
I’m still here and I can
Make sweet love to you tonight

You may find me sitting
Baby my intentions they are steamy
but my conversations cold
but everybody has their moments
and my friend he has a dream
he says tell all the skanks at my funeral
that I lived the life of a king

baby I’m too weird to be you’re man
and this I understand
but I’m still here and I can
scratch your back
and hold your hand
and make sweet love to you tonight
Track Name: Stories Told
She knows the words to all the songs I play
Cause I play them for her every day
And I catch her singing along
when no one’s paying attention
that’s the way all the stories end
you never can rely on your friends
you know their feeling bad
but they just fail to mention

another stories told
one day you’re growing up
and the next you’re growing old

I know the things that keep her satisfied
Cause I do them for her every night
And I know she likes it much
She just wasn’t paying attention
That’s the way all my stories end
You never can rely on your friends
You know they’re feeling bad
But they just failed to mention

Another stories told
One day you’re growing up
and the next you’re growing old
Track Name: Growin Cold
You’re a maze
You’re amazing
It’s crazy
to think about you now
You’re more than a phase
You did more than just phase me
Maybe it’s the ways
That you emanate you’re style
And I’m in a daze
Or I’m just lazy
I want to sit back
and soak up your smile
you won’t save
it drives me crazy
baby I’m still a slave
for your style
I’m on a roll
I’m still rolling
But my path now
Is going up hill
My feet are on coals
My heart’s been stolen
And my heads all fucked up from the pills
And what about my soul
Have I sold it
If not yet I surely will
But I need control
I’ve got to hold it
Baby I’m still a slave to your thrill

I’m so low
I’m so lonely
I’ve lost control what do I do
And what about love
My love is hungry
Baby my love is so hungry for you
You’re so above me how’s the view
Why don’t you drug me
and drag me home with you
you look so lovely and I love you too
yes I love you too

Times are slow
Time moves so slowely
Every second I’m without you
And when I’m old and I’m still lonely
Taxes and tolls won’t have paid my dues
And what about my soul
Is it still holey
Baby my soul is to whole for you
I need someone to hold
I want you to hold me
I’m growin cold
with nothing to do
