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.

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

I Know You 02:30
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

Night Games 02:29
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

Moment 02:17
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

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

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.

Rosebud 02:41

A Loan 02:50
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

Big Ideas 02:27
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

Numbness 03:56
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
