Track Name: Joe (You Gotta Save Yourself)
This kid said I don't really like your friend
and I don't think I like your plan
you got me killing time again
until I put you back in line again

And I don't wanna know
how far I gotta go
I don't wanna know...I know

Joe you gotta save yourself!
you wonder why you sleep tight all night
wake up and you wanna die

This kid said I don't really like your friend
'cause he don't seem normal
and it's gotta end
picking up your sorrow
in the losing end
and I don't think I can fight him off again
It goes,

it gets so fucking low
how far I gotta go
I don't wanna know...I know

(chorus)

I've seen the line at least a hundred thousand times
I swore that I could see myself behind those eyes

I don't wanna know
how far I gotta go
I don't wanna know...I know

(chorus)
wake up and you wanna die
Joe you gotta save yourself
Track Name: For A Friend
Lit cigarettes on my fingertips
burn my fingerprints
and make me forget him
now I'm feeling sick
a little dizzy, I'll bite my lip
and try not to think
of what they did

and you're the one
I shoulda wrote about
I didn't see it then,
but I know now
that you're the one
I shoulda wrote about

this town took my name
bent my soul, I burned again
I didn't know
that it was us and them
but you're not a fool
we think alike, we don't get their rules
ya they can lie
but we still have our truths

(chorus)
Track Name: The Odds
Saw your face turn
in the back room
what are the odds of three 7's?
What are the odds?

The reds can change from black to blues
but my train is coming
you can't always choose

What are the odds of three 7's?
What are the odds

Kill the vial and dial the mood up
the way you stare
the planchette skewed

Saw your face turn
in the back room

what are the odds of three 7's?
What are the odds
Track Name: Inhaling
Morning when the party cannot be pushed any longer
and my eyes have had enough
of the room that seemed so big the night before
I'm wired and there's no way sleep will come

buzzing on a higher frequency,
I'm by the ceiling
she says she wants to take me home

if it's found out these four months
I have not been inhaling
broken down my doors
I smashed my TV set
It always seems to go...
I've never been in love like this

and this tide won't let me go
and now I've said too much
the car is cold
and it's time to go home
thoughts from the night before
hang like old smoke
by that yellow ceiling

if it's found out these four months
I have not been inhaling
broken down my doors
I smashed my TV set
It always seems to go...
I've never been in love like this

Morning when I just don't wanna go...
going home

If it's found out
I have not been inhaling
broken down my doors
I smashed my TV set
it always seems to go
never wanna go,
I've never been in love like this
Track Name: LGM
It wasn't how
wasn't how I
wasn't how I planned to be
disinclined,
the first to cast eyes
a sullen force inside of me

I wonder why they act so strange
and they're calling out my name
the girls and boys all look the same

heading out
avoid the glances
a better life, another drawl
you'll fly away
down to Kentucky
I wonder what your friends all say

I wonder why they act so strange
and they're calling out my name
the girls and boys all look the same

I can't sleep
they'll try to change me
doubt is swirling down the drain
a pod away
drifting through space
little green men want my brain

I wonder why they act so strange
and they're calling out my name
the girls and boys all look the same
