Track Name: Ooh Rah Rah
The war really wore me down over time.
Theres a whole lot of holes in the memory drive.
Say, well I’ll do what you do if she does what we do
We’re all strung out by the whites of your eyes.

It don’t mean a thing to me, like “ooh rah rah rah”
Who can even say what it means, “ohh rah rah rah”
Ooh rah rah rah

The war really wore me down over time.
Yeah there’s a whole lot of a space in the fog of your mind.
Yea there’s a whole lot of noise just wandering by,
And theres a whole bunch of reasons to cover your eyes.

It don’t mean a thing to me, like “ooh rah rah rah”
Who can even say what it means, “ohh rah rah rah”
Ooh rah rah rah

Just when I think it’s over I get a phone call from the king.
He says “your time’s run out” and that he’s coming for me.
He said “well I know what you did, and I know who she is”.
And we’re all strung out by the whites of your eyes.

It don’t mean a thing to me, like “ooh rah rah rah”
Who can even say what it means, “ohh rah rah rah”
Ooh rah rah rah
It don’t mean a thing to me, like “ooh rah rah rah”
Who can even say what it means, “ohh rah rah rah”
Ooh rah rah rah
Track Name: War to Wage
It's been a long time coming on up,
I sure could have used some of your help.
Where the hell did you go?
Where the hell have you been, since you went missing?
Remember when we were kids and you would ball up your fist,
twirl it around and throw a fit?
Go na-na-na-na-na

When all you got's a war to wage,
you settle in and make your peace.
When everything's just out of reach,
you pray the lord your soul to take

Every little bit counts of every moment you waste,
as you count down to say goodbye.
By the look in your eyes, you wasted boat loads of time.
Remember when we were friends and you would ball up your fist,
twirl it around and be a dick?
Go na-na-na-na-na

When all you got's a war to wage,
you settle in and make your peace.
When everything's just out of reach,
you pray the lord your soul to take
Track Name: Old Bag of Grass
Im just an old bag of grass, nobody wants me.
Every person I pass, keeps their eyes focused forward as they scamper by me real fast.
Oh lord, won’t you save me? Won’t you keep me when I crumble up and get swept in the trash?
Don’t you know ive been rehearsing? Ive been keeping myself clean.

Just because you feel broken, doesn’t mean there aren’t places to sail.
Just because you feel groovy, doesn’t mean you won't find brand new ways to fail.

Im just an old bag of grass, nobody wants me
I pour myself a tall glass, and I wait for the morning to shine some sunlight on my back.
Yeah well nobody’s perfect, sometimes it’s just worth it, some days it’s just all that you have
Yeah well nobody’s perfect, especially me

Just because you feel broken, doesn’t mean there aren’t places to sail
Just because you feel groovy, doesn’t mean you find brand new ways to fail
Track Name: Neon Sign
I love the neon sign, yeah it brightens up my lonely life
When you're standing underneath its light, it keeps you warm and dries your eyes.
And it burns throughout every night, and it gives me somewhere to go.
Somewhere where i can pass the time, somewhere where I can feel satisfied...

I adore the city shine, it gives me hope and makes me smile.
When I feel like I'm on the ropes, the people there keep me company.
And as sure as the sun will rise, yeah well i seek out their company.
And if things get a bit out of line yeah well keep in mind, we'll make it right....
Track Name: Hate What You Need
You’re working the side where I wanted to be.
I wish I could know how everything seems from there.
And i wish you had some room to spare.
I’m dotting my I’s and crossing my T’s,
And i’m taking the scraps that you laid out for me.
Yeah that you laid out for me

And the world never felt so cold
And you hate what you need
And it all, falls in on itself
And you hate what you mean

You're breaking the line I wanted to keep,
I wish I could know, how everything feels from there
Yeah and I wish you wouldn't fly off the rails
Yeah well I’m crossing my heart and clenching my teeth
And i’m taking the path that you laid out for me
Yeah, you laid it all out for me

And the world never felt so cold
And you hate what you need
And it all, falls in on itself
so you say what you mean

The weight of the world’s so damn heavy
You just can’t ever seem to hold it steady
There’s a crack in the wall that is bursting already
You just can’t ever seem to hold it steady

And the world never felt so cold
And you hate what you need
And it all, falls in on itself
so you say what you mean
Track Name: G.D.M.N.T.
I never thought I would live this long.
I never thought I would make it this far.
So far from perfect, oh yeah.
But we're still working toward it. , oh yeah

I just wanted you to light up my heart...

I never put much thought toward it, somehow.
And I'm still paying for it, for now.
I'm real far from perfect, oh wow.
But I don't worry about it, no.

God don't make no trash.
Ah, yeah, But He sure likes to get a laugh.
Nothing comes easy,
Working off the sins of Eden.

So you’re pulling out your hair, and you’re pacing and weaving.
You’ve been through this before, but it never had any real meaning.
You hit your stride, right as you run out of time.
Then the clock runs out it’s the end of your life.

God don't make no trash.
Ah, yeah, But He sure likes to get a laugh.
Nothing comes easy,
Working off the sins of Eden.
God don't make no trash.
Ah, yeah, But He sure likes to get a laugh.
Nothing comes easy,
Working off the sins of Eden.
Track Name: Tied Up In Our Sleeves
I've been up all night watching you poke holes in me.
Lately you're always talking over the TV

We're tied up in our sleeves and they ain't letting us leave.
Haha hehe hoho I'm pulling out my teeth
Just pull together yourself, you're supposed to be my dream
You're supposed to be my evening, easy to read

I've been up all night walking around in my sleep
Lately, and all too often, I check out for weeks

We're tied up in our sleeves and they ain't letting us leave.
Haha hehe hoho I'm pulling out my teeth
Just pull together yourself, you're supposed to be my dream
You're supposed to be my evening, easy to read

Lalala I'll see you later on tonight. You make time. Very well, you know it suits you too well.
Every time I'm walking out you're grabbing on to me, woah. Yeah farewell, you know it suits you too well.

We're tied up in our sleeves and they ain't letting us leave.
Haha hehe hoho I'm pulling out my teeth
Just pull together yourself, you're supposed to be my dream
You're supposed to be my evening, easy to read
Track Name: If It Only Worked That Way
Flat, rolling along we were born to this storm, can't turn it off and on, so we wait,
for the clearing of the stage, for the clouds to open up and break

If it only worked that way, I’d stay here by your side
If it only were that way, there’d be no need to cry

But it is what it is in the time when we’re alive, and I want you to know that you’ll always be a friend of mine,
Well, I like driving, and don’t wait up cuz im not coming home.
Yeah, I guess you were right, all those times, when you said that you thought that I wouldn’t ever make you mine
Well, I like hiding, and don’t wake up cuz i'm not coming home

Collapsed, but still rolling along we were born to this thorn, cant turn it off and on, so we wait,
for the clearing of the slate, for the clouds to open up and break

If it only worked that way, if it only were that way
If it only worked that way, if it only were that way

But it is what it is in the time when we’re alive, and I wont you to know that you’ll always be a friend of mine,
Well, I like driving, and don’t wake up cuz im not coming home.
I guess you were right, all those times, when you said that you thought that I wouldn’t ever make you mine
Well, I like hiding, and don’t wake up cuz im not coming home
Track Name: Holy Moly
Curse the moment. What did I pay for?
She's in perfume. I'm a bar stool. Woah.
Rusty fingers clutch the pavement.
Weathered and broken. How's Los Angeles? Woah.

Holy Moly! They only want what you can't give.
So you're getting pretty worried, 'cause it's just now sinking in. (just now sinking in)
You're fighting battles that you know you just can't win.
And so you're getting pretty worried, 'cause it's just now sinking in. (just now sinking in)

I'd love to leave it all behind, jump in the saddle again.
Yeah, don't stare at me like you already know the ending.
Sure, you're alright. I'm on my way there.
Don't look at me. I don't need a thing.

Holy Moly! They only want what you can't give.
So you're getting pretty worried, 'cause it's just now sinking in.
You're fighting battles that you know you just can't win.
And so you're getting pretty worried, 'cause it's just now sinking in.

Yeah the kids, they don't need you anymore.
and the girls, they don't see you like they did before.
Yeah you tumble in, like some creature, into the room.
Yeah and I don't know the answer. Do you? (fade out long note)

Holy Moly! They only want what you can't give.
So you're getting pretty worried, 'cause it's just now sinking in.
You're fighting battles that you know you just can't win.
And so you're getting pretty worried, 'cause it's just now sinking in.
