Track Name: Towards
Went for a walk outside to get my conscience clean
Buried up my lies with nicotine

Went for a walk outside to get my conscience clean
Given up explaining what I mean
Worried eyes
Paper smile that tends to rip
Notes are miles from my fingertips

Inventory of my downfalls
So many thoughts I've had
Finally put to words

Tried to change myself I wish that wasn't true
But I would change the world if I could
One more night
I'm wide awake til this is through
So many thoughts I had to say to you

Inventory of my downfalls
So many thoughts I've had
Finally put to words (I stack the)
Inventory of my downfalls
So many thoughts I've had
Finally put to words
Track Name: Used to Be
Used to be that I could smoke my cigarettes
Used to be that I would take what I could get
Used to be my drink would help me to forget
Used to be

Now there's mouths to feed and a song thats just not done
Just another father that doesn't spend time with his son and I've got
Responsibilities that gives me an excuse and I've got
Memories of walking in his shoes
Father and his son

Used to be that I could smoke my cigarettes
Used to be that I would take what I could get
Used to be my drink would help me to forget
Used to be

The way that he looks to me makes me feel I've done okay
Jimmy says “Papa, I wish that you would stay”
Now he's got his games to play and he's got his sister too
Used to be

Used to be that I could smoke my cigarettes
Used to be that I would take what I could get
Used to be my drink would help me to forget
Used to be
Track Name: A Scene Out of a Paul Simon Song
Runnin into old haunts in the alcove of a has-been restaurant
Arm in arm with a good friend
I guess some things change some never end
Force a smile and slight nod
An awkward hug, hear the roar of a hot rod rolling by
I try but I can't help and think

Its a scene out of a Paul Simon Song
Sing another Paul

Talk a bit about old times
Maybe even have a couple drinks to unwind
“She seemed to glad to see me, I just smiled”
Then I walk away better off
Hummin in my head

Its a scene out of a Paul Simon Song
See that I'm appalled

Why do you still carry on
Why don't you just move along
Pretend to be over it
Pretend this doesn't mean a single fucking thing
Its just a scene out of a Paul Simon Song

Found a new reputation
Confidence
Blonde with the attitude “better off, carry on”
You're just better off
Carry on

Its a scene out of a Paul Simon Song
Sing another Paul
Track Name: Say Goodnight
We never get the chance to say goodnight
Or even to read a book by the firelight

My hammer built these calloused hands
We can eat because of them
I pound them nails everyday
I know that I'm worth more than I'm paid

Blood and sweat I'll spend my days
Toil for a workers wage
Drink at the end and I'm okay

My wife and my babies they have cried
Haven't seen me around here for quite some time
But I'll be back there with my pay
My wife and babies I will play
Spend the night
We'll fuck we'll fight
Family's gonna be alright
A kiss on the cheek and I'm on my way

We never get the chance to say goodnight
Or even to read a book by the firelight
One day soon I'll be makin my way back through
Well Maria my dear, I do love you

I'm back, I'm back out to my work
Surrounded by strangers faces
Common jerks
Souls being tested on the road
Trying to prove their worth in gold
Each one of them has tales to tell
about this real and living hell
The wrinkles on their face
don't need words to explain their pain

We never get the chance to say goodnight
Or even to read a book by the firelight
One day soon I'll be makin my way back through
Well Maria my dear, I do love you
Track Name: Robert's Lullaby
It started out as a song
We had two babies born dead
The song was stuck in my head
But I couldn't sing it because everytime I cried
I told my wife that it was ok
Its just a song and someday
Our kids will laugh and hear this lullaby

Baby grew into a child, into a man
Into a world he had to understand
Mother would still crawl across the floor
to hold him up and rock him back and forth
She sang the same words that she always sang

I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living my baby you'll be

Mother grew sick and old
Tired, weary
Asked her son “won't you come near me?”
She knew she didn't have much time to go
He held her up and rocked her back and forth
He sang the same words that she used to sing

I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living my baby you'll be

Just like grandma used to sing
Just like happiness may bring melancholy to accompany
I'll pass these words along to you
May you sleep the whole night through

Sing the same words that she used to sing

I'll love you forever
I'll like you for always
As long as I'm living my baby you'll be
Track Name: As You Wish
I might slip
I might fall behind
Doing the things you want me to do
I will sit
I will take my time
What I do?
Do it all for you

I can be broke down
I know how to keep you loving me
I can be low brow
But I'm here now
Nothing else except for you and me

Been broke down but climb back up the middle
Think of all the times we've seen
Hell goddamn we seen more than we shoulda and
I'm banking on you and me
Been broke down but climb back up the middle
Think of the all times we've seen
Hell goddamn we seen more than we should've and
I'm banking on you and me

I might slip
I might fall behind
Doing the things you want me to do
Well I will sit
I will take my time
What I do?
Do it all for you

I can be broke down
I know how to keep you loving me
I can be low brow
But I'm here now
Nothing else except for you and me

Been broke down but climb back up the middle
Think of all the times we've seen
Hell goddamn we seen more than we shoulda and
I'm banking on you and me
Been broke down but climb back up the middle
Think of the all times we've seen
Hell goddamn we seen more than we should've
Track Name: Californee
Stop yelling at me, I know you're dissapointed
Wish you were mad like me
Look at our history we started in California
Many end up there chasing the dream that we have lived and I know

Everythings alright
Still if its broken we can fight all night
Can we let it be alright?
Its just you and me claiming we're justified

Reign in your tendency to act like you're not enjoying
the way that you're treating me
If there's a vacancy its not for lack of trying
I do my best here giving my arm to stop this awful feeling

Everythings alright
Still if its broken we can fight all night
Can we let it be alright?
Its just you and me claiming we're justified

Are we done yet?
Are you dumb yet?
Did you come yet?
Are you numb yet?

Everythings alright
Still if its broken we can fight all night
Can we let it be alright?
Its just you and me claiming we're justified

Claiming we're justified
Track Name: Ammunition
Forget the circle pit today
That is so 1998
Years of antennae/rabbit ears
Suddenly goofy disappears

Now I have ammunition for life
Pitted confidence

I was a shy kid not a fuck up
Now I'm a fuck up with a reason and a utility
Let's call it stability

For my own admission ticket price
Pitted confidence

Can I please get a grip of silence?
Was it the mileage or compliance?
Balance or defiance?
We'll never really know

Now I have ammunition for life
Pitted confidence
Track Name: Brother
Mother I've been back and forth with this
About a million times
My brothers life is something I can't miss
But he really makes me try
Mother I've been back and forth with this

I had a brother who was there everytime
Would have laid it down if our lives were on the line
Now we barely speak and I wonder if its me

I don't know why he's so stand-off-ish
When I just wanna be
I can remember when we were both friends
But now he hates me

I had a brother who was there everytime
Would have laid it down if our lives were on the line
Now we barely speak and I wonder if its me

Brother you've been back and forth with me
One too many times
A brothers life is something we should see
But seeing is hard when things have changed
Yet I still recall better times when

I had a brother who was there everytime
Would have laid it down if our lives were on the line
Now we barely speak and I wonder if its me

I wonder if its me
Track Name: Last Call
Tried to be around guess it's all my fault
I got stuck downtown
Them boys were playin loud and I heard last call

Give me one last
Chance to make it right cause time goes so fast
I need another night

Walked a mile home
stumbled down the road to get to you
The last thing you said is that I let you down
I know that's true

Give me one last
Chance to make it right cause time goes so fast
I need another night

Cause every time I'm sayin hi
You're sayin bye like a lullaby
Some cliche played out McCartney song
"Birds and bees and fallen leaves,
apologies, soliloquies"
Just won't convince you to be not wrong

Tried to be around guess it's all my fault
I got stuck downtown
Them boys were playin loud and I heard last call

Give me one last
Chance to make it right cause time goes so fast
I need another night
