Track Name: Not Stoked on Trent
Walking these streets thinking of how I let you down
How could I know why?
Been taking medicine almost every night
How could I know why?

Sleeping as the world flies by is how I spend my time
How could I know why?
I'll be coming home to you, I've been gone so long
How could I know why?

Please
Be glad to see me.
Track Name: Fix This Place
We get our faces rubbed in the dirt
Then we laugh about how much it hurts
And the only solace we know
Is the promise of tomorrow

Well it's easy for me to say
It's even easier for me to do
I've got so little to give that
it doesn't really cost me a thing

There's a bit of a disconnect
Between what you get and what you expect
And it all ends up in between
everywhere you've been

Well it's easy for me to say
It's even easier for me to do
I've got so little to give that
it doesn't really cost me a thing

Oh
To think
What it would take
To fix this place
Track Name: I Know You
At night
you come to me in my dreams
the kind
that always end in screams

you say you
can't wait to see me
you say you
can;t wait to be with me

but I know you
and I know that you're not true
I know you
and I know that you're not true
I know you

all day
you just won;t go away
i hear
every word you say

you say you've got
time on your side
you say you'll be
waiting by and by

but I know you
and I know that you're not true
I know you
and I know that you're not true
but I know you
and I know that you're not true
I know you
and I know that you're not true
Track Name: Night Games
And I don't know about these night games anymore
They still mean something to me
When all at once you've lost your reason to be
You're only friend is defeat

You knew this day was coming but you didn't know
What you would do when it did
You thought that maybe you'd have figured it out
You've had plenty of time

I see your subtle suggestion
I catch your reference
But I know that you lost your way
Before you landed a...

Coddled by a world that's trying to sell me something
I begin to feel entitled
I hope I live long enough to forget
Everything I regret

I see your subtle suggestion
I catch your reference
But I know that you lost your way
Before you landed a...
I see your subtle suggestion
I catch your reference
But I know that you lost your way
Before you landed a thing
Track Name: Moment
Oh I needed you
But only for a moment now the moment's gone
Betrayed by a lifetime

It was just a blip
A tiny little moment in a sea of years
Betrayed by a lifetime

I got one more hour to kill
Before I get to where I need to be
I got another hour to kill
But it won't kill me

Oh I thought I knew
how everything was gonna
work itself out
But I found out

Oh that just because
You put something in your head
Doesn't make it so

I got one more hour to kill
Before I get to where I need to be
I got another hour to kill
But it won't kill me

----

I got one more hour to kill
Before I get to where I need to be
I got another hour to kill
But it won't kill me

I got one more hour to kill
Before I get to where I need to be
I got another hour to kill
But it won't kill me
Track Name: The Neighborhood
you're always somewhere else
frying bigger fish
I wish I could offer more
but I can only give you this

you look like someone else
that I used to know
not exactly my enemy
but not exactly my hero

you still need something else
you're not quite complete
you're much better at winning
than you are in defeat

and I hope you find that sympathy
I know you're looking for
I know you feel excluded but you got
one foot out the door
one foot out the door

you're always on the outside
trying to get in
you don't want to make mistakes
but that's exactly what you did

you've got a lot to prove
but not a lot to prove it with
I wish you could give us more
but you could only give us this

and I hope you find that sympathy
I know you're looking for
I know you feel excluded but you got
one foot out the door
one foot out the door
one foot out the door
Track Name: Broken Things
Well that didn't take long
All these brand new things
Well they look like shit
And maybe I belong with all these broken things

Broken things

She don't mind.
Track Name: Rosebud
people like you aren't really my friend
but I still see you every now and again
you can tell me all the things that you been up to
and i can nod my head like polite people do

whoh oh
but it wouldn't be right
hey ohh
no it wouldn't be right

people like you really break my heart
you don't know what to do so you fall apart
you can tell me all about your latest trick
and I can nod my head like you don't make me sick

whoh oh
but it wouldn't be right
hey ohh
no it wouldn't be right

it's important to me
that you understand
that I'm not as in control as you'd think
I can't take credit
for all of these things
anymore than I deserve the blame

people like you aren't really my friend
but I still see you every now and again
you can tell me all the things that you been up to
and i can nod my head like polite people do

whoh oh
but it wouldn't be right
hey ohh
no it wouldn't be right
hey ohh
no it wouldn't be right
hey ohh
no it wouldn't be right
Track Name: A Loan
well i may have been some places that i knew better to go
and I may have said some things that I didn't want you to know
but I can't believe that it's all fallen down

I may have been afraid of what I should have stood up to
and maybe I was crazy when I should have played it cool
I may have been some things that I didn't want to be
and I may have lost my mind when I went looking for something
but i can't believe that it's all fallen down

I tried to get away
but you would not forsake me
heard every word you said
and took all that i could take

tried to give away
all that you had given me
but I could not escape myself

i been staying in
listening to half truths
drinking moonshine
and watching the reds lose

i don't wanna get away
i don't wanna get away
i don't wanna get away
i don't wanna get away

I was drawn in when I should have turned away
and I was a fool and I should have been afraid
I was ok when I should have been outraged
and I was a asleep when I should have been awake
but I can;t believe that it's all falling down

I tried to get away
but you would not forsake me
heard every word you said
and took all that i could take

tried to give away
all that you had given me
but I could not escape myself
Track Name: Big Ideas
I'm a cup that was told
that I couldn't hold water
I'm a rake that was told
not to gather leaves

now I know these are things
that everybody knows
but these are big ideas to me

I'm a train that was told
not to roll on the tracks
I'm a street that was told
not to bear any traffic

I'm a shovel that was told
not to move the dirt
I'm a gun that was told
not to kill anything

now I know these are things
that everybody knows
but these are big ideas to me

if I beat you to the punch in my face
then I still lose
but at least I got there first

if you get shot in the head
by a foe or a friend
does it hurt any worse?

I'm a drink that was poured
and left on the bar
I'm match unstruck
on the side of the box

I'm a broken heart
that was never in love
I'm a bad idea
I'm a bridge to nowhere
Track Name: Numbness
I'm just living in a fast food nation
where it's no longer safe to kill
yourself with bad decisions

and I'm still living in a self-entitled place
where everyone wants everything
and no one asks for it nice

we came a long way
just to get through the day
we came a long way
just to get through the day

nice girls with pretty eyes
do more damage than they realize
with their tossed-off I love you's
and sympathetic smiles

numbness in extremities
and various other maladies
has got me shaking at the knees
I've no place left to go

we came a long way
just to get through the day
we came a long way
just to get through the day

I don't want to be here
when the bottom drops out
when you start doing things that
you're not proud of

we came a long way
just to get through the day
we came a long way
just to get through the day
we came a long way
just to get through the day
we came a long way
just to get through the day
we came a long way
just to get through the day
we came a long way
just to get through the day
