Track Name: It's Yr Life
You're tied to that couch like it's your penthouse
Get up and get out 'cause everyone doubts

YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU LIKE - 'CAUSE IT'S YR LIFE
IT'S YOUR LIFE

She left you alone a sword in the stone
You'll sleep on that throne 'til skin fades to bone

YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU LIKE - 'CAUSE IT'S YR LIFE
IT'S YOUR LIFE
Track Name: Devotion
She feels like she's floating away with the tide and I'm tired of watching her drown
I pray that the ocean's waves will provide a blanket to settle her down

God I hate asking for favors
Just get me out of this town
She said that I couldn't save her
Now she don't want me around

If she takes the ocean then I'll keep the sky and sidestep the beauty below
I think that devotion means saying goodbye when there's nowhere that you'd rather go

God I hate asking for favors
Just get me out of this town
She said that you were my savior
How come you're never around

IT'S GONNA TAKE SOME TIME TO GET YOU OFF MY MIND
IT'S GONNA TAKE SOME TIME THIS TIME
IT'S GONNA TAKE SOME TIME TO GET ME OFF THIS TIME
IT'S GONNA TAKE SOME TIME THIS TIME

God I hate asking for favors
Just get me off a the ground
Cause I tried all thirty-two flavors
And now I don't wanna be found
Track Name: Brooklyn Bridge
Heard you been talking shit my friend well you can talk talk all you want
If she gets fuckin' hit again it's the asphalt you will haunt
'Cause I have known a lot of girls in that swimming pool called romance
Where simple oysters crush the pearls with a steel toe's swift advance

Washington, Washington
God I miss the Brooklyn Bridge
Get me out of Washington
And take me to where she lives

Heard you been sleeping in Michele well you can sleep sleep for ever more
And dream your life is not that hell where you juggle love and war
It's very easy to prentend in the saw fields of your mind
That some bored angel will descend in an effort to be kind

Washington, Washington
God I miss the Brooklyn Bridge
Get me out of Washington
And take me to where she lives

Heard you been making plans to leave well you can make make make believe
That every thing is gonna change but everything it stays the same

GET ME OUT (I'll be there), GET ME OUT (I'll be there)

Washington, Washington
God I miss the Brooklyn Bridge
Get me out of Washington
And take me to where she lives
Track Name: Truest Thing
I get up six am coffee paper back to bed again
Cause the news is never good I only read the parts I think I should

THINK I SHOULD WRITE THE PERFECT SONG BUT EVERYTHING IS WANTING SINCE YOU'RE GONE

I'm up again twelve fifteen my body yearns for more caffeine
Oh but the coffee's burned to the pot thought I turned it off but I forgot

Yeah I Forgot Most Everything
That I Had Promised You That I Would Bring
To Our Lives To Our Bed
And I Still Hear Your Static In My Head

Another day gives way to night what starts so great just winds up with a fight
Cause we are both misunderstood we never say the things I think we should

THINK WE SHOULD RIGHT ALL OUR WRONGS BUT WE COULD NEVER FIT THEM IN A SONG

It's been a month maybe a year the things I thought I want disappear
But my love for you will not thought I turned it off but I forgot

Yeah I Forgot Most Everything
That I Had Promised You That I Would Bring
To Our Lives To Our Bed
And That's The Truest Thing
That's The Truest Thing
That's The Truest Thing
I Ever Said
Track Name: Chainsmoking
I am on my back chainsmoking, reading the writing on the wall
I wouldn't blame you but I'm hoping, praying you'll return my call
As of last night it was hopeless I knew that when you threw my keys
And told me that you couldn't care less for all my inadequacies

ME I KNOW IT'S HARD TO LOVE ME LIKE YOU DO
BUT I WOULD GIVE MY LIFE TO MAKE THIS UP TO YOU

So while you sit at home chainsmoking, praying that death will set you free
I am outside coughing, choking, provoking God to punish me
I know I really fucked up this time I should have punched the Goddamn wall
And I know knowing's not the worst crime it's the doing that makes demons of us all

ALL MY STUPID LIFE I HAVE SEARCHED FOR YOU
AND NOW THAT I HAVE YOUR LOVE I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
Track Name: Umbrellas in the Rain
I know there's got to be a willingness a chance to lose what you gain
But it's a tribute to my stubbornness I don't use umbrellas in the rain

We've gone from tragic to ridiculous and everywhere in between
I cannot weather your vindictiveness why are you always so mean

SHE THINKS I'M HAVING A PARTY
SHE THINKS I'M BAKING A CAKE
SHE THINKS I'M CELEBRATING HER FATE

I tried to slip into subconciousness I thought that then I could see
Every little thing that was wrong with us but I just kept seeing me

SHE THINKS I'M HAVING A PARTY
SHE THINKS I'M BAKING A CAKE
SHE THINKS I'M CELEBRATING GREAT

I Wanna Drink Until It's Obvious
That Everything I Love Dies
Maybe Then Instead Of Vacuous
You'd Say That I Was Alive, I Was Alive, I Was Alive

SHE THINKS I ACT LIKE JESUS
I THINK THAT SHE IS MY CROSS
SHE THINKS I'M CELEBRATING HER LOSS
Track Name: Have You Forgotten
I wanna ask you a simple question
Have you forgotten are you forgettin'

WHAT YOU PROMISED TO ME SO EASILY

I wanna ask you to come home
It's overblown, overblown
Track Name: I Don't Know Why
Laura it's getting late please can we count some sheep
I'm sorry I screamed at you there's obstacles in my head

I DON'T KNOW WHY I ALWAYS FIND WAYS TO MAKE YOU

Please don't be so upset I don't mean what I say
Something about the snow brings out the worst in me

I DON'T KNOW WHY I ALWAYS FIND WAYS TO MAKE YOU CRY

Oh Why Do You Cry

Laura it's getting late the sunlight is in my eyes
Please can we get some sleep tomorrow's a brand new day

I Don't Know Why I Try
Track Name: Happy Where U R
The boxes sleep inside the room their impending doom is glowing like the moon
That's floating high above my head like everything you said hanging by a thread

The Loneliness Is Grabbing Hold Thought I'd Never Feel So Old
You Have Taken This Too Far Are You Happy Where U R

Oscar whispers wildly says "be all you can be - but don't join the army"
Thought I knew what your cat meant like you he up and went now he's a sergeant

The Loneliness Is Grabbing Hold Thought I'd Never Feel So Old
You Have Taken This Too Far Are You Laughing Where You Are

ARE YOU LAUGHING WHERE YOU ARE
HA HA HA HA
ARE YOU HAPPY WHERE U R
HA HA HA HA

Is there something I should say to facilitate the day you take our bed away

The Loneliness Is Grabbing Hold Thought You'd Never Be So Bold
Are You Happy Where U R You Have Taken This Too Far
Track Name: Get Over Yrself
Get over yourself while you still can
It's not good for your health boy to be a bitter man

So Get Over Yrself
Get Over Yrself

We know who you are and it's a goddamn shame
Yeah you should be a star child but life's a dirty game

So Get Over Yrself
Get Over Yrself

BEFORE YOU DO SOMETHING TO REGRET

It's Not Over Yet

Get over yourself while you still can
Track Name: Starshine
Heartbreaker, so fine
I got a million ways to get you off
My mind

Lovemaker, divine
Intervention will not rescue you
This time

There's A Lotta Things I Coulda Said
But I Bit My Tongue Until It Bled

Ballbreaker, defined
Is a picture of you with the word
Unkind

Hipshaker, rewind
Back to the day when I called you
"Starshine"

There's A Lotta Things I Shoulda Said
But I Bit My Tongue Until It Bled

YOU TAKE HER SHE'S BLIND
TO ANYONE THAT GETS INSIDE HER MIND
YOU TAKER STARSHINE
STAR STAR STAR
STARSHINE
Track Name: The Quickest Way to Happiness
I broke my lover's heart without saying a word she asked me for a child I just pled the third
I know I'm not a soldier but this is a time of war
Every time I give an inch they always fight for more

At night I feel the echo of heartbeats in my head like some empty promise I meant but never said
Most times I think I mean well but I live so aimlessly
The quickest way to happiness leads far away from me - far away from me

Kate was barely twenty & it broke my lover's heart after all these years I've turned deceit into high art
It didn't take much liquor after years of being through
When faced with mediocrity your poison chooses you

I stood there with my hands out waiting for a prize like some eager child with lollipops for eyes
I drank the bloody liquid buried deep inside the well
The quickest way to happiness will lead you straight to hell - lead you straight to hell

LISTEN UP BECAUSE THE BAND IS PLAYING "I'LL GET OVER YOU SOMEHOW"

I'll Survive

I broke my lover's heart now I sleep on that throne
In front of my computer - naked, drunk, alone
I'm not looking for forgiveness for the things I haven't done
I just want the phone call where they tell me what I've won

LISTEN UP BECAUSE THE BAND IS PLAYING "I'LL GET OVER YOU SOMEHOW"

I'll Survive
