Track Name: Facefull of Lead
Face Full of Lead

Face full of lead won’t get up again this is not my friend
I’ve heard it all before it gets worse here all the more
This is not the end
I was in love with the lies I was livin
Both eyelids get livid sometimes
I took two to the head won’t get up again
Is this the end?

No and I heard that I should stay strong through right or wrong
And now it’s all I can do is leave the rest to you
And now I’m falling far below
The very same reason I come
The very same reason I come undone.

Face full of lead won’t get up again this is not my friend
I’ve heard this shit before gets worse here all the more
This is not the end
I was in love with the lies I was given
Both eyelids get lifted sometimes
I took three to the head sure won’t come back again
This is the end

Oh and I heard that I should stay strong just to move along
And it’s all I can do is leave the rest to you
Although I’m falling far below
The very same reason I come
Is the very same reason I come undone

This was the story of two brothers who refused to get along
One weak one strong I was neither one
And now I’m falling far below
The very same reason I cum
The very same reason I come undone.

Oh Yeah, oh yeah
Woke up with a face full of lead.
Track Name: Teeth
Teeth

I’m a liar I’m a fake I’m a fraud
I pretty much stole every word I fucking put in this song
And I can tell you they don’t love you no more
It’s kinda funny how you lay there with no lock on your door
Oh you…

Dark stranger stepped inside of my room
I can tell by the look in your eyes
This shit will be over soon

My dental records will indicate
I was not really much for Novocaine
But I brushed and flossed two times a day

I’m a liar I’m the snake I’m a thief
I pretty much stole every word that you were trying to keep
So put your head back open up and say “ah”
I brought a pretty expansive list of all the things you’ve done wrong
Oh, you…

Dark Stranger step inside of my room
I can tell by the look in your eyes
This shit will be over soon

My dental records will indicate
I was never really much for Vicodin
I brushed and flossed two times a day yeah

Dark stranger stepped inside of my room
I can tell by the love in your eyes this shit will be over soon

My dental records must indicate
I was never really much for Novocaine.
Novocaine.

Dark stranger
Doctor Strange and I we know the truth
Dark strangers
That the dark stranger is you

My medical records must indicate
I was never really much for Adderall

But I brushed & flossed two time a day
I used mouthwash every other day
And then I brushed and flossed my whole fuckin’ life away.
Track Name: Roadrunner
Road Runner

You can tell by now from the way that we’re dressed
We’re not all that tough
We’re not at all intrusive or condescending
But we got the right fucking stuff
To back it up

When we’re together
When we’re alone
We hit the highs and then we get so low
Collapsing right down
On top of these fuckin
boards you call a stage

I can’t do it I just can’t do it again
Walking backwards yeah
I can’t do it I just can’t play pretend
Every time something goes

Wrong with the kids but we’re all right
Driving through the night and then we get so high
I found a new reason to breathe I hope it’s not very obvious
Am I obvious?
You’re never coming back again
But you’re not even worth rememberin
This is why we hold it down Again

I take a hit and I reminisce
About the good times passed
Try to remember a good time
But I don’t remember a single thing

Walking flatfooted and dumb
Back then I used to drink just because
Til I had empties filling up my practice room floor

I can’t do it I just can’t do it again
Starting over yeah
I can’t do it I just can’t play pretend
Every time something goes

Wrong with the kids but we’re all right
Driving through the night and then we get so high
I found a new reason to breathe I hope it’s not very obvious
Am I obvious?
You’re never coming back again
But you’re not even worth remembering
This is why we hold it down again

I can’t explain it for you
You’ve got some thinking to do
No matter which way you choose
I’ve got the road ran

Shut up and get in the van
Something you can’t understand
It’s what you do that defines you
There is no leaving too soon.

Talkin bout kids on wires falling through the sky
You get so alarmed as we get so high
We found a new reason to breathe I pray to god we’re not obvious
Are we obvious?
That we’re never coming back again
But I’m not even worth remembering
Tell me why should I hold it down for you
Track Name: Sweet & Low
Sweet & Low

If I don’t get it now I’d better get it soon
No turning back what do I do?
Please let me go you’re hurting my neck

A dirty empty room a broken bottle’s song
The last cigarette carries you along
Baseball bat all the bases are stacked

His world is turning blue in a parking lot downtown
I found a king without a crown

Who swings low swing low
As hard as you can
I’ll stay goddamned the way I am
Sweet & low sweet & low
With your foot in my hand
Too broke too beg to proud to shout

I you don’t leave it soon you’d better get out now
No hammers left to pull you out
Please let me go you’re hurting my wrist

A lonely liver’s sound follows you around
The tick-tock of sand slivers of your hand
Please let me know you’re blowing your exam

This grave is spinning round in a marketplace uptown
Top downed and can’t be found

Swing low swing low
As hard as you can
I’ll stay goddamned the way I am
Sweet and low sweet and low
With your foot in my mouth
Too broke to beg too proud to shout

Changeling got all charged out
Timberlined washed over and out
Change form channel your rage
Set fire to the sails
the crew cannot be saved

Your knees are turning green bursting apart at the seams now
We all drown in a world that’s upside down

So swing low swing low
As hard as you can and I’ll stay goddamned the way I am
Sweet & low sweet & low
With your foot in my mouth
Too broke to beg too proud to shout
Swing low swing low
Track Name: Thunder Mountain Jailroad
Thunder Mountain Jail Road

I’m so punk rock I hate this song
Tried to write down words but they came out wrong
Hardwires are set for overdrive
Keep pace so I know that I’m alive
My fleeting voice is tired but I tried
Suppose I let myself down

Why waste your time? You talk more shit
Get it off get it off baby go go go
Now all your clothes are stained in piss
Spirited away
So you wanna know some truth?
I guess I let myself down

Every time I feel you then I get left behind
On a Thunder Mountain Jail Road will surely blow your mind
I thought I told you once until I told you again
My aching irony waits instead
It must be all in my- I guess it’s all in my head.

I got something you wanna know
But it feels so good you can’t let go
Picked a bad time to make a goddamn joke
It tastes so good I hope you fucking choke
My fleeting fires just burned away my time
I guess I shouldn’t mind

Why waste your time? You talk more shit
Get it off get it off baby go go go
Now all your clothes are stained with piss
Spirited away
So you wanna know the truth?
I guess I let myself down

Every time I feel you then I get left behind
On a Thunder Mountain Jail Road will surely blow your mind
I thought I told you once until I told you again
My aching irony waits instead

Cause you and me and Steve makes three
But I get anything I want and everything I-
See it’s all in my- I think it’s all in my- I guess it’s all in-

My head is set on overdrive
Railroader loader function left my heart behind.

Why waste your time? You talk more shit
Get it off get it off baby go go go
Now all your clothes are stained with piss
Spirited away
Got all your life to think it through
So you wanna know some truth?
I guess I let myself down

Every time I feel you then I get left behind
On a Thunder Mountain Jail Road will surely blow your mind
I thought I told you once until I told you again
My aching irony waits instead

Cause you and me and Steve makes three
But I get anything I want and everything I need
I think it’s all in my-
I know it’s all in my-
I see it’s all in my-
I guess it’s all in my head.
Track Name: Floretine Oysters
Florentine Oysters

We give a fuck
And there’s no getting through to you
We drank too much and we just don’t know what else to do
I’m on to you

I was on a train I was in a moving car
A plane took us far from what we are
The nights are getting long again
My hope is slowly trembling
Resembling

We don’t give a fuck
And there’s no getting through to you
We drank too much and we just don’t know what else to do
What’s wrong with you?

We can beat this
No we won’t compete to borrow
Sink or swim my sweet
With both eyes swallowed whole now

All my best friends
Every other weekend we will
Sink our teeth in
And go off the deep end while

I was in a dream I was in a cannon ball
White flame opened up, ate us all
The days are getting long again
There’s no hope to be right with them
Remembering

We don’t give a fuck
And there’s no getting through to you
We drank too much and we just don’t know what else to do
We’re over you

We can beat this
No we won’t compete to borrow
Sink or swim my sweet
With both eyes swallowed whole now

All my best friends
Every other weekend we will
Sink our teeth in
And go off the deep end

I need more time
All your time
I need more time
All the time

We don’t give a fuck
And there’s no getting through to you
We drank too much and we just don’t know what else to do
I cared too long and now it’s never coming true
I loved you first and I just can’t help that

All of my best friends are alive on the weekend
And that all I remember was just laughing together well I

This is the end we let all our friends down now
Grew up and moved on I guess I had it all wrong
Hold it down sweet & low all teeth have hit the ground now I
Say goodbye & farewell I guess I’ll see you in hell.
