Track Name: Between Here and There
Cars on fire
driving down the road
skeleton people
coming out of their holes
down the broken sidewalks
cracked with grass
to the liquor stores and the bars
always crawling with rats

but they ain't got no
time
no they ain't got no
pearls
If they could help
themselves
then they would
rule the world

and the haunted houses
where the children play
falling to pieces
getting worse each day
and the wounded women
fall asleep on the couch
where the tears pop
from their eyes
and flow down into their mouths
and they wake up
with a start, right before
they drown
with a sad souvenir
from a life they never found

but the pay is getting better
every decade or so
but you might want to wear a sweater
because you know
It's cold

And on the other side
the money's all in the bank
cause it's easier
to write a check than to pay
for the finer things
but not as fine as you think
cause it's easier
to write a check that to think

but you can work your way
up the ladder
oh yeah, can't we all
but there's a lot of fucking people
Oh look, it's starting to fall

And the crucifixion
on the lawn of the church
with some really nice cars
and some cars that don't work
and I am wondering
what it is that you do
you tell me I cant know god
unless i go through you

you tell us we cant
save ourselves
well you can
go to hell

and what comes next
well, we don't know
are we covered in fire
or
are we buried in gold

I never ask the question
I know the answer
just isn't there
so I just decided
to believe
so I don't
have to care
Track Name: My Class
My class sat still
and remained silent
restrained to our room
yeah, we sat
and we worked
and we tested
baby
and then they gave us some food
and we'd talk
and we'd tale
so careful
quietly
so as not to break
their rules

because the first amendment
doesn't exist
in school

my class sat still
and remained silent
as screams came from the hall
yeah, they sat
and they worked
and they listened
baby
to a man hit a child
with a log
and we'd laugh
and we'd cry
so careful
quietly
but never felt much
at all

let's call it
what it is
it's abuse
it's ASSAULT
and ask me
another question
C'mon ask me
what's wrong?

cause I'm happy and free now
I'm happy and free now
and I'm so glad I got out
so happy and free now
Track Name: Gasoline
You really don't have to call me again
You really don't have to call me a friend
I will find you a place
In my sad little life
I will follow your grief
with my strife

I really don't care what it sounds like
I really don't care to make it sound alright
I could call it down
all the things that I've seen
or
I could cover everything
in gasoline

You really don't have to call me again
You really don't have to fight with me to win
Well maybe you're right
This isn't all that there is
or
Maybe you're wrong
But you still gotta give

It's really ok, if you, just don't, love me
It's really alright, yeah it's cool, don't try to believe
'Cause you can have all my love
you can have it for cheap
It comes at the cost
Of gasoline

Gasoline
Gasoline
Gasoline
Gasoline
Track Name: Amen
You said you'd turn it all around
You said you'd burn it to the ground
You said you'd turn it all around

I don't mind if it
takes a little time
I don't mind if it
takes a little time
I don't mind if it
takes a little time

Anytime
I don't mind
I don't mind
Anytime
I don't mind
I don't mind


I don't mind if it
takes a little bit
I don't mind if it
takes a little bit
I don't mind if it
takes a little bit

Anything
I don't mind
I don't mind
Anything
I don't mind
I don't mind

I don't know why
the earth keeps turning
I don't know why
the sun keeps burning
the starlight falls
like the leaf
from a tree
the starlight calls
and it's coming
to be

You said you'd turn it all around
You said you'd burn it to the ground
You said you'd burn it to the ground
You said you'd burn it to the ground
Track Name: Last Nights on Earth 11 and 36
Tonight, it feels like there's hope in the air
Tonight, the moon, it seemed like it really cared
About me, oh my
About me, oh my

Tonight I'm so confused, I can't sleep
Tonight my shoes feel like they're filled with concrete
And I feel alone, yeah, I'm dying in here
And I feel so cold, yeah, I'm dying right here

And it was wrong and crossing lines
But it's worth it at the time
Yeah, it was wrong and crossing lines
But it's worth it at the time

Tonight, your eyes, they fly in spite
When our wings touched
You were a friend of mine
How I felt so bad for you
Yeah, I fell so bad for you

Tonight the world grows for you
Tonight, the stars, well they glow for you
And I am just a part of the world you have made
Yeah, I am just a part of the things you create

That were wrong and crossing lines
But it's worth it at the time
Yeah, it was wrong and crossing lines
But it's worth it every time
Track Name: Waiting in Line
Open my eyes
To see
That I'm going blind
Well, I just feel like lying
In my bed forever

Waiting in line
Wasting my time
With the dead and the blind
For a bag of bottles

Dropping a bomb
Dropping a bomb
I'm gonna win this war

Ok, I'm fine
Ok, now I'm fine
And I don't feel like crying
But I don't know what for

Memory erased
Memory erased
With a smile on my face
But I can't go home

In the dark late at night
Burning my eyes
Giving my life
To a box of light

Waiting in line
Wasting my time
Waiting in line
Wasting my time
Track Name: It Was All a Dream/I Used to Read the Paper
When I get home
You're always mad
And I'm so tired
Of feeling sad
For us
For the world
For the rust
And all the pearls
While the weeks
And the months
And the years
Just turn to dust
And I almost forgot....

And how much time
Can we spend
Spinning around
With our hearts
Getting sick
It's like a roller coaster
Rolling off the tracks
Like a Bucket
Of a Ferris wheel
Falling to a crash
And I almost forgot
That I love you
And I almost forgot....

When we go out
It's conditional
To a table
Where we speak
In omissionals
Prepared remarks
Gathered up
Through the week
We talk about a lot of things
But we never seem to speak
And I almost forgot....

And how much time
Do we have left
Maybe make a child
Or buy our second house
We can save for the future
We can tighten up our belts
Save everything
We don't throw away
Everything but ourselves
And I almost forgot
That I love you
Again
I almost forgot
That I love you again
I almost forgot
That I love
You again
I almost forget
That I love you
Track Name: Spooky's Gone
You took that breath
With everything you had
And it was more than enough
For another one
For another one
For another one
For another one

I remember the day
When I brought you home
And you decided to stay
You could've ran away
You could've ran away

And I remember the nights
When you would attack my fears
From the edge of the bed
While I fell asleep
While I fell asleep

You took that breath
With everything you had
Left
But your face grew tired
Cause you knew
It's not enough
For another one
Yeah, you knew
It's not enough
For another one

And then you're gone
Far away
But still
Next to me
Into another dream
Into another dream
Track Name: I Remember Everything
If you take a lot
If you take it in
But you can't remember
Where you've been
Down the trail
Breadcrumbs inside your head
That only leads to life
That did not exist

I remember everything
I remember everything

When you win the war
And you come back home
To a broken house
Where everyone's broke
So you take your pills
Your Change, your hope
But your heart is beating
A little, too slow

I remember everything
I remember everything

And time will pass you
Like a ribbon of smoke
Weighed by the words
That you never spoke
Buried beneath
The shit you own
A life lived less
Than the dash
Carved into stone

I remember everything
I remember everything
Track Name: Eternal Boy
Hey little boy, don't you
fly away from me
cause you're so much
stronger than I could
ever be

and some nights in my mirror
I hear you scream and you plead
yeah some nights in my mirror
I still feel the fear and the pain
calling my name

laugh a little more, don't be
such a fucking bore
cause you got my future
and I have so much
in store

and some nights when I'd wander
I'd fall right into a dream
and now some nights I still wonder
how that dream came to be
is it you or was it me

fly away with me to the place
that we have seen
and we'll soar through the sky
right beneath our burning wings
and we'll crash into the sea
like a stone through a mirror
and we'll smash our own reflections
and we'll see so much clearer
we were always
right here
