Track Name: used 2 be a romantic
i need a cigarette 
those fuckers talked over my whole set
but i don't have anytime to reflect
i gotta sell some shirts 
to try & make the rent

i think i'm sick of transit
my anxiety is spinning on a compass
i used to be a romantic 
now i'm a dude in a laminate

i can't see shit i'm blinded by the light
i swore that i'd quit but i need a drink tonight
i'm on the road with no one i love in sight

& make that drink stiff
i gotta drown out this emptiness
i'm tired of playing all my old hits
but my new songs are too depressing

i'm hungover in a hotel bed
i'm gonna hop in a big red van
go to some city do it all again
i hope tonight it turns out different
Track Name: i was wrong
i was wrong
but one day im gonna find me a mermaid
one day i’m gonna be a vampire
one day im gonna live that dream
with a house on the hills 
grass blowing in the breeze
i was wrong, but wrong aint me!!

i was wrong about my strength
i was wrong about the weight
but one day im gonna have me a calico
kitty named “joni” named after my hero
one day im gonna have a doggy leash
a dalmatian with spots like rorschach ink
i was wrong but wrong aint me

i done wrong
but one day i’m gonna dress up like a penguin
talkin tuxedo party for all my real friends
one day these broken songs we sing
gonna help somebody find a remedy 
we done wrong
but wrong aint we
Track Name: the bottle's my lover, she's just my friend
the bottle’s my lover, she’s just my friend
i’m thinking of drinking when we’re lying in bed
she tells me “come over” i’m drinking instead
cuz the bottles my lover, she’s just my friend

i can’t write myself out of this twilight
the words they won’t come out 
i’m buried alive
try to recover, impossible to mend
so the bottle’s my doctor
& my prescription

pop-gun cowboy run
with this symbol you were born
it’s carved into your arm
now fade into the dawn

my spirit is half sure like the love i refuse
& i’m looking past her
so she’s cutting my loose
can’t find any reason
or cause to believe in
so the bottle’s my savior 
like it’s always been
Track Name: henna tattoo
i was struck by a mighty gust of wind
seeing you seeing him…
is this love?
jealousy sinking in
seeing you seeing him

i’ve been feeling so insecure
like is it gonna come true if i say it?
rolling blackouts in your heart
gave you a henna tattoo 
& it’s fading

your eyes close slow like
poppies in starlight
& i feel your breath
white paper fan
you’re my love can’t you see
i’m your man
tell me 
when you’re seeing me you’re seeing it
Track Name: hello moon
tough when the sun goes down
hello moon
i’m your broken child
your dog in denial 
do what you’re gonna do…

all of a sudden that dark thought
ink blot
rorschach
ghost mask 

all i need in my paradise is light in the room
all i need in my paradise is you
Track Name: tournament horseshoe
she’s the only one to pick me up right off the ground
she’s the only one to help me put the bottle down
she’s a saddle made of leather
she’s a tournament horseshoe
she’s the only one i’m gonna give my lovin to

back in some dark age when i would stumble as i walk
& prowl the streets for fire just to burn away the scars
she saw heart thru the sorrow
took my hand & saw me thru
she’s the only one i’m gonna give my lovin to 

still on the water
like swans in the afternoon
wrap ourselves up in each other
like a wine key corkscrew

how many chapters has it been 
since we began to write this short?
the story’s getting better
yeah it feels like living art
for you i’d write a novel
or else i’d carve you a statue
you’re the only one i’m gonna give my lovin to 
Track Name: songs r worthless now
i’d like to be somewhere near to my friends
when the bombs start to drop & the world starts to end
love won’t protect us when the firing begins
but with my last breath i’ll kiss you 
as the bullet goes

with my big imagination i could never think of this
people killing people 
just after hurricanes hit
it sounds like a story 
i wish it was a myth
i can hear the hooves pounding
sounds like apocalypse

words fail me now
songs are worthless now
Track Name: mood ring baby
so you wanna get close?

if you were the artist & not the muse
you’d be lonely like me too
but you’re the beautiful girl uninhibited
& i’m the cowboy with the handkerchief

you’re green, you’re purple, you’re a silver ring of moods
i love you always
i’ll carry you

you’re so scandalous 
you know exactly what you do
tease those boys with your crystal charms
while im at home whittling bamboo

cuz you’re the princess on a pillow seducing the moon
& im the poor boy with just a song to see me thru

you’re origami paper i don’t know what to make of you 
one day you lick my wounds the next day break my heart in two
Track Name: everyday'z 2moro
she cooks in a fever while i write out my sickness
when we’re both done we make love & then we go to bed
tomorrow it all starts over again
everyday’z 2moro

she’s heading off to work she leaves me with one sleepy kiss
now i’m all alone in my girlfriend’s clean apartment
fuck it up all day with beer cans & dirty dishes
clean it up before she gets home

i don’t have a job & i’m always gone on tour yeah
i don’t even have a place of my own anymore
i’ve been eating taco bell & sleeping on the floor
i’ll be hungover for weeks when i turn up at her door
but she lets me in to stay 
lets me in to stay
she’s the one part of my life that don’t change
lets me in to stay , says i missed you yesterday
i said baby i aint going nowhere
lets live like everyday’z 2moro
Track Name: helps me forget...
it helps me forget for a moment
to kneel down & drink from the lake
it helps me forget for an instant
to build a fire & swallow the flame
it makes me believe for an evening
that the child inside of me 
remembers it’s name
i wake up a mess in the morning
i swear i’ll pay whatever it costs 
to forget it all again

help me get back to that place
when i can be something else - 
…a bird song on the breeze…
when the day dream was far away
how did i get here?
& how in the hell am i going to escape

it helps me forget for a second
to lay down & cover my face
or prance around the house 
dancing naked
listening to all the old we used to play
it makes me convinced i’m just changing
that someday soon i’m gonna wake up
strong, bold, & brave
but i can’t help but feel i’m just broken…
