Track Name: The Big One
meet at the river
or meet me at home
lets make a plan so we're never alone
all of our nightmares
rolled into one
we have been waiting for the big one to come

you are the reason
reason i try
if i were honest i'd end my life
we are still learning
learning to lie
there is no shame in denial when it helps you survive

if it's true what they say
stop listening
if it's true what they say
it's not true today
Track Name: Victory Laps & Crashes
you could say that it's meant to be
you could say that it's destiny
either way there's a choice to make
like which me am i gonna be today
you could say that it's not your fault
you could say that it's not in the cards
either way it's a copout plan
when you're laying it down and you're folding your hand

you never look in the trophy case
you never keep goods on display
either way all your modesty shouldn't make you forget what you did achieve
there's so much that you can't control
there's so much that you still don't know
either way there's just one trick
that's stay in the race till the feet don't kick

victory laps and crashes side by side
i'm still learning how to ride my bike

i still remember when i heard you say
that these dreams are miles away
you said it like you'd be along for the ride
somewhere along the way you fell off your bike
the fear of fear is a frightening state
you can't travel where the evil waits
all it takes is one little scrape
or one roll of tape for a memory quake

now i don't wanna let anyone in
cause i know even soul mates find a way to end
all it takes is one little sin
or one little doubt to do the whole thing in
shaky hands and knocking knees
too many candles not enough breeze
either way it never bothered me
does it bother you
the o after the 3

suck it up when the whole thing blows
never walk on your tippy toes
the winter grape is the summer wine
and today's tear, tomorrow's punchline

victory laps and crashes side by side
i'm still learning how to ride my bike

i still remember when i heard you say
that these dreams are miles away
you said it like you'd be along for the ride
somewhere along the way you fell off your bike
Track Name: Jenny
i may not be the strongest man you ever knew
but i could always reach the cupboards
and open the jars for you

if you're sick of crying
if you've had enough of nina simone
jenny you can play my song
if you're sick of crying
and if nobody will laugh at your jokes
jenny you can play my song
and i will laugh with you
laugh with you my friend

you tied yourself up
you drowned in the tub
you showed me the pics
you laughed at the blood
you bailed on your date
you hid in the car
the slinky came back
you're never too far
the l.a. river
a shopping cart
some people stay
while others depart

if you're sick of crying
if you've had enough of nina simone
jenny you can play my song
if you're sick of crying
and if nobody will laugh at your jokes
jenny you can play my song
and i will laugh with you
laugh with you my friend

you told me a riddle
that life is a cycle
and we all go round in circles
well if that riddle is true
i'm still waiting for the good part
i'm waiting to come back around
to you jenny
bring me back around to you
Track Name: Make Me An Offer
make me an offer
one that i cannot deny
make me an offer
don't you leave me wondering why
make me an offer
one that i cannot refuse
make me an offer
there ain't nothin' i won't do

i'll give up my nail bittin'
if you quit smackin' your gum
it's the little things that make you draw your gun
you're a morning bird and i'm a night owl up so late
and if that's our biggest trouble baby, we have got it made

make me an offer
one that i cannot resist
make me an offer
so that we can coexist
make me an offer
before the whole thing falls apart
you and me can barter
it's never too late to start

i'll pay you in flowers
you can pay me with your mouth
it's worth enough to clear a florist out
the wind is howling up and down this place we now call home
but if you and i are family why do we feel alone

make me an offer
i know we can work it out
we have both been martyrs
for this love we've been devout
but there's no need to suffer
we don't need to make this harder
so make me an offer
make me an offer
Track Name: Bloody Converse
what do you do for your money
what do you do for your fun
what do you do with your money
what do you do with your money for fun

dinner and wine and a movie ticket
the reasons why i went to work today
i've i had known i'd get a speeding ticket
i woulda passed up the food i ate
so many times i folded up the t-shirts
all of the while my head was out in space
how many times can you repeat sir yes sir
before you go totally insane

what do you do for your money
what do you do for your fun
what do you do when the money is gone

some of my friends live in houses
some of my friends live in cars
each of them equally happy
each of them equally sick of it all

carry around an empty pbr can
just so i know what to do with my hands
talk to some kid who's wearing bloody converse
is it too late to learn to skate like him
on the commute i'm wide awake it's morning
i spy a lady painting on her mole
everyone's off to gather fuel for evening
none of my worries fit inside this bowl

so what should i do
take out a credit card
oh no
open a tab at the bar
and rebel against being poor
Track Name: It's A Funny Life
i am a fountain of youth
either too late or too soon
driven with nowhere to drive to
end up at some late night fast food
washing with purple shampoo
everyday a costume
grandpa should never like my haircut
at least he don't know that i smoke pot too

it's a funny life
and i'm laughing till i start to cry
someone left me here
now i'm waiting for another ride

i am a fountain of youth
i'll take it all out on you
hard to explain what i'm mad at
or why all my favorite songs are so sad
inside the jeep we drip dry
listening to the loveline
my imagination runs wild
no longer shall i be treated like a child

it's a funny life
and i'm laughing till i start to cry
take a photograph
just to prove that we gave it a try

when you are younger
you wish you were older
and then you get old
all of the questions
outnumber the answers
i guess you never know
so much of living
is wasted on worry
of things you can't control
my body is changing
my heart wants the same thing
and i don't wanna go
now it's getting heavy
the middle of the medley
i gotta take it slow
Track Name: Hot Blooded
never been much of a bad boy
quite the contrary
drove me to nearly kill a guy
just to earn credibility
31 years you'd think i'd know who i am
you can't be both otis and bob dylan

me and my girl we live reckless
bank accounts getting thinner
went out and bought a weeks worth of groceries
that night we ate em' for dinner
look in my eyes you'll see a hungry dog
it ain't puppy love it's a leash and a lock

but here i go again i tell ya
you're the one i've always wanted
you're talking trash to all my opponents
you're the one who's in my corner
you

met a bunch of good looking health nuts
they're all smoking cigarettes
but judge not less you be judged
that's how i'm getting to heaven
who in the world is really looking for truth
we're just looking for proof that our suspicions are true

ahh forget it babe
lets do it like in the movies
rip each others clothes off
we never needed any sorcery
a million ways to turn it on
in 31 years i hope i laugh this off
it only takes 3 minutes to hate this song

but here i go again i tell ya
you're the type i always wanted
i'm on my toes right where you hold me
not a day goes by that's boring
for every ailment there's a potion
something sweet to keep me going
your hair's on fire you're so hot blooded
you're generous to a fault and i love it
you're honesty is a cracking whip
never afraid to tell it like it is
i ain't ready for kids, you don't challenge
a working girl who keeps it in ballance
i don't know how but you've really done it
like the technology i never knew i needed
you
now i could never go on without it
you
Track Name: Busker
i gave my money to a busker
his voice was weak but his song was real
the weary train emptied their pockets
i guess you know the truth when you hear it
and i'd rather be an awful singer
than be a liar

i gave the idols a run for their money
cause i could dance with a mic in my hand
and i knocked em' dead while i was singing for god
not just another boy in band

but now the current life which i'm living
is far removed from that gullible kid
you know that i can't pretend
you know that i've always been
i've been myself whoever it is i am at the time

i gave my money to a busker
cause these days the truth won't get you paid
and i've come to grips with my own fate now
and i've got a basket full of golden eggs
and i'm glad i'm not an awful singer
or a liar
Track Name: The DeLorean
i'm waking up with a bloody nose
must've been dreaming about you
and i'm wondering are you still throwing blows
i feel defensive around you

am i gonna need a fire extinguisher
every time i talk to you
or is this the rear view of the delorean
will it get better where we're going to

our love is hard to explain or compare to
the flickering light doesn't shine like it used to
and i'm not as pure as i was when i met you
your heart is wild, i ain't trying to blame you
or tame you
so just let loose

come on and talk to me
girl i need you to talk to me
you know that i'm sorry
so talk to me
talk to me babe
Track Name: Shadowboxing
slowly i've become alienated
as i discover my path
i didn't choose to believe what i don't believe in
and there's no taking it back

when the pressure's off
each day is a pleasure
on the ground that i till
i'll take my turn
like sisyphus goes up on the hill

it's hard enough to know what you want
let alone know what you need

i try so hard not to be offensive
till i offend myself
i spent some years leaking misinformation
now i'm patching the boat

still i go forth boxing my shadow
i gotta do it alone
let go of the grudge
there's freedom while i'm dropping the torch

it's hard enough to know what you want
let alone know what you need

oh i think i got it
fingers crossed
it feels like i've been waiting for the lotto
waiting for a moment of truth

oh i think i got it
even in the future they're still waiting for tomorrow
waiting for a moment of truth
