Track Name: Deserved
From the first time I discovered
What it felt like to be wrong
I knew there could not be another
Kind of feeling just as strong

And so I'll admit that you've hit a nerve
This is what I deserve

From the time when I was smothered
By the ones who always claimed
That they had to be my brothers
Had to get out of the game

And so I'll admit that you've hit a nerve
This is what I deserve

So I'll admit that you've hit a nerve
This is what I deserve
Track Name: That's It, That's All
My friends try to tell me the truth
They only tell me what to do
"Don't call
Don't crawl
That's all."

It ends when I can talk to you
When I just get my one call through
That's all.

I can't sing the notes that a younger me wrote
The past sounds better in quotes

My friends can't be held to blame
I never need to feel the same
I'll fall
That's all.

I'll spend the time to lose my shame
Become the one who overcame
That's all.

I can't sing the notes that a younger me wrote
The past sounds better in quotes
Track Name: Old Car Stereo
When you're driving down the road
And your mood begins to slow
Roll down all the windows
Track Name: Open Your Eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
It doesn't have to hurt
Track Name: Paranoid
I have reached my limit
For what this world can do
At twenty five, one less alive
I say "good luck" to you too
Track Name: Freewheelin'
I been up all night
Waiting for you to return
Sitting on the back porch
Wondering if I will learn

But who am I to start a fight?
And who am I to say if I'm right?

I been moving along the sidewalks
Thinking about where you have gone
Coming home lonely
Asking myself how I was wrong

But who am I to start a fight?
And who am I to say if I'm right?

I been waiting in the dawn
Morning coming slowly to me
Watching the sun rise
And now I can finally see

But who am I to say if I'm right?
And who am I to start a fight?
Who am I to step into the light?
Track Name: Hail Mary
Waking up in the morning
Snow coming down through the walls
I had a terrible feeling
I was alone after all

Hail Mary and her saving throw
Hail Mary and her grace even though
I turn the TV off it still will glow "Hail Mary"

Falling asleep in the evening
Wrapped in the warmth of her arms
I snapped awake and was screaming
Even though dreams can do you no harm

Hail Mary and her saving throw
Hail Mary and her grace even though
I turn the TV off it still will glow "Hail Mary"
Track Name: "Vonnegut"
Money spent and money gone
Who knows what I done wrong

Taken by another man
I never really could understand

Taken by another man!
I never really could understand!
What I did wrong

Money spent and money gone!
What the hell did I do wrong, I said!
What the hell did I do wrong!

Of all the words of mice and men,
The saddest are, "What could have been,"
And, "What never was."
Track Name: I Want Your Soul
I want your soul
Mind, body, whole
So if you ever leave this place
I don't have to forget your face

I want your soul
To love and to be loved, that's my role
So I can cry over you
Or I can try to be somebody who can be loved

I've been awake too long
But it still feels like a dream
'Cause sleep is senseless
And you can't feel anything
But if I wake up and you're ever there again

I want your soul
Mind, body, whole
So if you ever leave this place
So if you ever leave this place
Track Name: Last Cigarette
This is my final cigarette
You always said we all need at least one thing to regret
And as I draw my final smoky breath
It is the closest that I'll ever be to controlling death

And please believe
That I'm just finishing the pack
I'm never going back
Though I know that I got four more to go
Yes I know that I got four more to go

I been chewing gum, trying caffeine
Can't sleep when I'm alone, but I hate the party scene
I'm not quite there, I'm in between
This is the last one and tomorrow I'll be clean

And please believe
That I'm just finishing the pack
I'm never going back
Though I know that I got four more to go
Yes I know that I got four more to go

And please believe
That I'm just finishing the pack
I'm never going back
Though I know that I got four more to go
Yes I know that I got four more to go
Track Name: Gerald Fjord
I just came here to tell you
Memories are best forgotten
Not something you can return to
Not something you should get caught in

You just gotta let it (her?) go
You just gotta let it go
Ooooo let her go

I just came here to tell you
There never was anyone better
We had too little time to learn from you
We had too little time together

You just gotta let it (her?) go
You just gotta let it go
Ooooo let her go
