Track Name: Shark Attack
So close I can taste it and I think I'll go mad.
I stick out my tongue everything just tastes bad.
That taste in my mouth sounds a lot like my Dad.
It says, "All I can give you was all that I had."

So it's all about words now and how their distorting.
That sound in your head's just a different recording.
You look like the one with the yellowy eye.
You tell me you need me I know it's a lie.

That finger's still pointing and looking for dust.
That bikes still chained up outside covered in rust.
I chopped all my wood but forgot to get water.
I rise with the sun 'cause I slept with your daughter.

Prewar contact.
We all want her back.
That great white shark bite keeps bringing me back.

So I learned that sometimes things begin where they end.
Yesterday's fight was the day before's friend.
I proofread a lot now before I hit send.
I like to say fuck but I hate to offend.

I worked through that minefield before I belonged.
I took 12 steps toward where I thought I belonged.
Spent so much time talking about things that were wrong.
I never thought life would be so goddamn long.

There's a brick in my oven and there's bread in my loving.
A whistle just blew and my friends are all boarding.
I'm nervous and scared. I'm sad and I'm free.
I ask it who's there it says, "No one, just me."

Prewar contact.
We all want her back.
That great white shark bite keeps bringing me back.
Track Name: Misdirected
Let's go to the park, east river park.
When it gets dark we'll all be safe in side.
There's a great big shiny new fence without an exit or an entrance.
You've gotta pay pretty price if you want everything to be free.

The power of this synergy is misdirected energy.

You burn and inscent. You pop a breath mint.
You try to clear the air. You try to kill the taste.
With smoke and something sweeter.
You golden goose egg beater.
Don't forget to feed her. We might just have to eat her.

The power of this synergy is misdirected energy.

You build your fences around your trenched.
We used to call them river and now you call them oceans.
If you wanna build a house you've gotta learn how to chop down a tree.
Forgot to find out where you were before you found out where to be.

The power of this synergy is misdirected energy.
Go.

You dropped a bomb. You lit a match.
You slipped out the window before the house burnt down.
My Dad can beat up your Dad in half the time and twice as bad.
You live life in the present. You hide beneath a Christmas Tree.

The problem of this synergy is misdirected energy.

You say, "I love you." I love you too.
Now that we love each other what do we do.
80 billion seconds left to fill.
Let's go make love in a land fill.
I can't believe you locals have got the guts to drink this swill.

The problem of this synergy is misdirected energy.
Track Name: Follow Her
She'll follow you the whole way down.
She'll follow you the whole way down.
When you run your life into the ground.
She'll follow you the whole way down.

She lites your pipe and she shines your crown.
She feeds you things upside down.
And you think that you like them better that way.
So you go to her when you end your day.

And you'll follow her the whole way down.
She'll follow you the whole way down.
When she trips and she falls and she climbs the walls.
You'll follow her the whole way down.

The wakes you up to help you sleep.
She pulls you out when you're too deep.
And she goes by many different names.
She sets you free by smashing your brains.
She drives you crazy without changing lanes.
And she fills your sky with firework flames.

And you'll follow her the whole way down.
She'll follow you the whole way down.
She takes your place when you're not around.
And she'll follow you the whole way down.
Track Name: You're A Girl
Slanted and chanted you act out your lot.
Refined you're defined by something you're not.
You go to bed cold when they tell you you're hot.
You're scared that their watching terrified that their not.

You're a girl. You're a girl. You're a girl.
You're a girl and you like it a lot.
You're a girl. You're a girl. You're a girl.
And if you don't know by now girl, I'm not.

You're skin gets too thick so you go for a peeling.
They tell you you're sick when you feel like you're heeling.
The sound that you make is of love that you're making.
The sound that I hear is of little girls breaking.

And you're a girl. You're a girl. You're a girl.
You're a girl and you like it a lot.
You're a girl. You're a girl. You're a girl.
And if you don't know by now girl, I'm not.

So you evolve and devolve and revolve around.
You're running mascara is the thorn in your crown.
You don't know what's up because we're all upside down.
There's no use in hiding. It's all over town.

That you're a girl. You're a girl. You're a girl.
You're a girl and I like it a lot.
You're a girl. You're a girl. You're a girl.
And if you don't know by now girl, I'm not.
Track Name: Mittens
I'm watching the TV. Some is dying and someone is having a baby.
You tell me you're hungry. I suggest Chinese. You say, "I don't know. I guess so, maybe."
And I didn't come this far to meet you. But I'm really glad I met you.
I'd go to the store and buy you something only I don't know what I would get you.
And since I met you...

My mitten became a glove.
My chicken became a dove.
And the more I felt pain the closer I cam to hopelessly falling in love, with you.

Now, lately I feel like I'm because I really just don't give a damn.
But how can I act like somebody else when I don't really know who I am.

Because my mitten became a glove.
My chicken became a dove.
And the more I felt pain the closer I cam to hopelessly falling in love, with you.

So now I just spent a hundred a dollars on a brand new pair of shoes.
And right after work I'm walking straight home to get drunk and act like I pay dues.
Because the biggest band in the country now is not the best band in the country now.
And the loneliest guy in the world right now is not necessarily me.

Because mitten became a glove.
My chicken became a dove.
And the more I felt pain the closer I cam to hopelessly falling in love, with you...with you.
Track Name: Hunted
You're not the same.
You don't feel quite the same since you've changed all the things you ever wanted.
Grass on the plain.
Get your ass on the train.
Buffalo, average Joe, you were hunted.
It's not the same as being wanted.

Let's advertise.
Their new disguise.
If you don't care.
They'll put you there.

Green on the grass.
Cut in line kiss my ass.
What's the last thing you really, really hated.
Velvet your nose.
Pantyhose curl your toes.
You just might learn to frighten someone.

Stop drop and roll.
Won't save your sole.
Just load your bowl.
Stay in your control because you are hunted.

Line in the sand holding hands rape the land for all the things you never knew you wanted.
Misunderstood Robin Hood. Bad or good, check the score, rich or poor, you are hunted.
It's not the same as being wanted.
Track Name: Pet Rock
A shadow on the sidewalk.
A digital alarm clock.
The rings around your pet rock
How much you jack your beanstalk.
The needle in your eye, your arm, your ass, you call a crime.
No, I don't care. No, I don't care what you use to keep time.

The gravy on your biscuit.
and if you if you dare to risk it
for the lady on the train
who floats your weather vein.
So, you chopped up all your wood.
And now you're looking for a lite
to burn you fire high.
To see if you were right.
The words you look for that other ignore saying all the time.
No, I don't care. No, I don't care just put your hand in mine.

You're hanging by your cable
clicking through the frames.
You remember the names they called you.
So you use the ones you know
And you let the bad ones go.

You want beauty in your news.
So, you're learning how to use.
A one time session, crash course lesson,
in the accusation blues.
Track Name: Tow The Line
When your life is piling up around you.
And your time is burning up before you.
And your mind is moving on with out you.
And your rhymes are no longer about you.

Just unwind.
With your kind.
Take it all.
I don't mind.
Let the worms take their turns.
Tow the line until it burns.

When you try to make friend you're lover.
And you find you've made your job your wife.
You might feel like going undercover.
Just to find the time to be yourself.

When you cat simply won't stop barking.
And you find it hard to pay the rent.
And you grow a frequent need for singing
just to drown the noise inside your head.

Tow the line until it burns.
Tow the line until it turns.
Pound the stake until it breaks.
Then rest your arms on the day
that you made.
Track Name: Lame
There's a story for every story that I have ever told.
And the things that make you stronger now are making me feel old.
Beth I heard you calling.
Me and the boys we played all night but we never quite found the sound.

So, tonight, tonight I will be around.
And tonight, tonight I might just let you down.
And tomorrow I'll borrow a melody to blame.
But tonight, tonight it all just sounds the same.
Lame

You don't have drive my car to go find out what you are.
You don't have to look that far. Just walk it off.
You don't have to plant that see just to find out what you need.
You can sit and watch it bleed until the cows come home.

But tonight, tonight I will hunt you down.
And tonight, tonight you might just let me down.
And tomorrow, I'll borrow a life to turn around.
But tonight, tonight you'll see me walking down town lame.

And tonight the light might not shine for you.
And tonight you might forget a name or two.
And tomorrow you're sorrow might get the best of you.
But tonight, tonight you're love will walk me through lame.
Track Name: It's All You
I can hear in the way you don't say.
I can see in the way you look away.
You make a deal but I don't feel like you're dealing.
You make me feel like I don't feel what I'm feeling.

And now I see that laugh was a scream.
And now I see that that smile was just a dream.
The action dies on every setting sun.
The camera lies and sometimes it just your eyes.

It's clear to me that you're a mouse in a maze.
It's clear to you that I'm rat inside a race car.
It's clear to everyone that no one really cares.
It's clear to nobody that nothings really theirs.

You always hurt the ones you love.
You always tend to love the ones who are hurting.
You're always talking as if everything is forever.
You're always acting like we're all in this together.
But it's all you now.
But it's all you now.
You're a bone cold sacred cow.
And it's all you now.
