Track Name: Cliffs
Up on the mountain I wish that I could see you
But it's too snowy here and you're like see-through
I catch a glimpse so it looks like your smile
It doesn't last long it only lasts a while

Sometimes I wish that I was more important
But I be careful cuz I don't wanna be different

From the mountains I moved down to the city
Where all the bright lights and the people they look pretty
From the crowds that's where I found a meaning
That didn't last long the notion felt fleeting

Sometimes I wish that I was more important
But I be careful cuz I don't wanna be different
Track Name: Spooky Times
Feeling strange and dehydrated
You're giving me the signs I'd be afraid of
You pick up feet, you can't put em down straight
Feeling like I see you more asleep than awake

You like it best when you get your bones
feeling like jelly or not at all
I love you still like a hundred dollar bill
that's been tossed in the mud and town up from the thrills

This aint no Holiday Express
A girl like you's got fifteen years at best

You took the pills that made the devil brave
and you stood up to God cuz you thought it was safe but
you're home in hell just ain't the same
and youre stuck with all the people that went the same
So there I said it and no I wont regret it cuz that guy's a piece of shit and I hate him
But that's okay, I know i have no say so I guess I'll just have to wait

This ain't no holiday routine
A girl like you's been living the dosed daydream

You've been sick for a while now
You don't mind it, I don't know how
It's gonna be the end of you
I see you dying, don't know what to do
Track Name: Take Time
Take time, take time I'll be with you
Take time, take time I'll be with you
Take time, take time I'll be with you
Take time, take time I'll be with you
I got a cold one sittin in my chest
and it won't warm up til it's up against your breast, babe
All I want is to feel if it's even there
All I want is to feel if you even care
Cuz you're the only one but you give it to anyone
except me babe and I've been tryin so hard for you
It's all I do

Well I guess I'll have to wait around, for it
You know I'll be with you

Take time, take time I'll be with you
Take time, take time I'll be with you
Take time, take time I'll be with you
Take time, take time I'll be with you
I see your boyfriend, he's looking like a nice one
Darkside poet type but still able to have fun
All he wants is the one that's looking back at him
All I want is the one that's holding onto him
Cuz I'm a lonely one that's probably the only one
to want it this bad I must be trying too hard for you
What should I do

Well I guess I'll have to wait around, for it
You know I'll be with you

Well I guess I'll have to wait around, for it
Track Name: Sitting by the Fire
Sitting by the fire I fought temptation
to put myself by her to let myself go
Sitting by the fire I lost my patience
Caved to frustration cuz she said no

Sitting by the fire
The moon rising higher
Just like my desire
I couldn’t let her go
Sitting by the fire
I thought I'd try her
To lay down beside her
But she said no, no, no

Sitting by the fire I fought temptation
to put myself by her to let myself go
Sitting by the fire I lost my patience
Caved to frustration cuz she said no

So sitting by the fire
The dark getting darker
The wind blowing harder
Shaking up my bones
She kept me hot with anger
A pleasant little dagger
Protecting me from nature
But chipping at my soul

So I thought I'd move closer
I raised my eyes towards her
The smoke rising from her
The fire shouting no
But shit I couldn't take it
That silence, I'd break it
Her blindness was violence
I couldn't be alone

I couldn't fight desire
So I stood up and grabbed her
With all beauty inside her
She burnt me to the bone
But still I had to have her
Her body filled with amber
My skin blistered like leather
I couldn't let her go, go, go

Sitting by the fire I fought temptation
to put myself by her to let myself go
Sitting by the fire I lost my patience
Caved to frustration cuz she said no

But sitting by the fire I went cold
Track Name: Silence
I hate the sound of people moving all around
I prefer the sound of silence, that's the sound that's so profound
Cuz that's the true achievement of the all human race
to cut out all the noise and build a silent place

Give your ears a break
It's not natural but nothing is these days
It's bad for you but so is doing cocaine
And cocaine feels pretty darn great

When you start you're dizzy and you turn all about
Leave your man-made shelter and fill your ears with sound
The more subtle the better, the loud ones cause you pain
They're more gross than ever let the blue into your veins

It's what they keep a secret, don't talk about in school
That blood's not red until you're dead, while you're alive it's blue
And that's why we feel shitty and that's why we drink booze
Because we're filled with quarts, and quarts, and quarts, and quarts of blues

Give your ears a break
It's not natural but nothing is these days
It's bad for you but so is doing cocaine
And cocaine feels pretty darn great
Track Name: Wake Up Pains
Mostly I feel nothing but the wake up pains
All drugs lead to something when you got bad brains
I'm not the kind of guy who works for money
Ive got my spot in life right next to you honey

That's why I won't be at the top
I'll be here stuck on someone's couch
I'll turn my future into poor
So when you ask if I'm in love
Well that depends

Lazy is the cause that leads to all divorces
Course I have myself to blame for shabby choices
I'm not that sharp these days I read Bukowski
I'll throw it all away by acting lousy

That's why I won't be at the top
I'll be here stuck on someone's couch
I'll turn my future into poor
So when you ask if I'm in love
Well that depends

Mostly I feel nothing but the wake up pains
All drugs lead to something when you got bad brains
I'm not the kind of guy who works for money
I've got my spot in life right next to you honey
Track Name: Son
What a simple man needs
Ain't got no money, ain't got no greed
Just some friends and a woman's lead
Just a home in a house with heat

I want a son to show him things I've done
Dancing round the living-room playing with my favorite tunes
To teach him things that took so long to learn
Make it all seem easier, put in simple terms

Oh I want it so bad
Oh I want it so, so bad

Where's a man gonna be
In X number of years, he'll walk by his feet
He's getting old, he's getting bored, he's getting tired, he's getting weak
I need someone to show the things that I have done, that I have seen

I want a son to show him things I've done
Dancing round the living-room playing with my favorite tunes
To teach him things that took so long to learn
Make it all seem easier, put in simple terms

--

I want a son for when I'm all alone, when I'm all alone, when I'm alone
I want a son for when I got no home, when I'm all alone
Track Name: Point Place
We will never be apart from a tall deck of cards
The South Side of town will forever be ours
With coffee cups we will discuss
Straight down Oklahoma you will find us
Out there on the rooftops all July, all August

But you will not know until you try
You can make the jump but you could fall and die

We each found our own a new town a new home
These kids runnin round but I'm still so alone
With coffee cups we will discuss
Straight down Oklahoma you will find us
Out there on the rooftops all of dawn, all of dusk

But we will not know until we try
We can make the jump but we can fall and die

We won't know til we do
Blood runs red or it's blue
We won't know til we do
Blood runs red then it's blue

So we'll never be apart
I'll look forward to your cards
The streets between 6th and 13th will forever be ours
But that don't mean we'll make it
That don't mean the distance won't be too large
Out on different rooftops, the jump is too far
