Track Name: Lucky
the car crash ain't so lucky for you
but I got to tell ya there's part of me that's glad it came true
I got lucky when I met you
sometimes you get lucky

woke up late last night
sleepless dreams in the darkness might
cause another stretch of bad breaks
clear my head of all its aches
but I can't change my luck
but I found that somethin' to pick me up

soiled the kitchen floor again
i'm so lucky you put up with all my shenanigans
i'm so lucky
i'm so lucky that I met you
sometimes you get lucky

lucky

darlin' I can't take it any other way
i'm so glad you stayed
i'm so lucky
i'm lucky you feel lucky
Track Name: Like It or Not
It’s times like these I don’t understand
It’s times like these my light bulb lights
It’s times like these I refuse to laugh
It’s times like these I need that laughter

Times like these really piss me off
I just want to think my happy thoughts
It’s been said that life isn’t fair
How many times have you heard that and thought, “well who the fuck cares?”

These times drive me to drink
These times make me stop and rethink
All the things that I thought I knew
Now what am I suppose to do
Like it or not, Like it or not, I can’t stop it

It’s times like these that I live for now
It’s times like these I go into hiding
It’s times like these I pronounce my cause
It’s times like these I keep to myself

Times like these really set me back
When I sink into this dark distress
I crawl out from this hole
Scream from the bottom of my lungs
I know that I will rock on

These times take all I have
These times take their toll on my soul
All the wonder in this world
Loose their luster because of the uncontrolled
Like it or not, Like it or not, I can’t stop it

Bridge: I can’t stop it, I can’t stop it
Wish I could just let it go, get some joe
And erase this from my thoughts
But I can’t stop it, I can’t stop it
Like it or not
Like it or not
I can’t stop it

It’s times like these I induce the clouds
It’s times like these I clear my conscience
It’s times like these I can’t find the tune
It’s times like these my music comes easy

1st Chorus
Track Name: Save Me
Save me
Save me from myself
Save me from those robes with long noses

We wore our wits on our sleeves
We aim to please
Make clear to the masses
Bread is the reason for reason

Madame Deficit and her Frothy Biscuit
Jetsetter, Black Snapper, and her Frothy Biscuit

Save me
Save me from myself
Save me from those kings with long noses

The incorruptible rich with power
No Sunday calendar
Never a hair…
Or a phrase outta place
Until now… until now

I just wanted what’s best for you
I thought I knew
Blood, terror
We’re all in this together
Until now… until now
How did I miss… how did I miss?

Save me
Save me from myself
Save me
Save me from somebody else
Track Name: Capture's Undone
i'm here to see her loathing looks at me
the cross glance moves across the room
lands in the leather chair
stops for a moment as if not wanting to stare
then touches my despair

so i leave the room for a while
gather my thoughts, they were stacked in a pile
the night time glow from the streetlights gives chase
to the wonderment of this little rat race

i get this feeling
that everytime you loose someone
the capture's all the fun that's undone
once the neck is in the clutch of the jaw
she's not the wonderful one
that the undone capture has made her become

after my break i have to glance once more
her focus is on the other door
i meet her face to face
she turns and walks
just what did i expect

through the back alley it comes clear to me
the footsteps behind me fall so loudly
she said i'm glad you made the trip
i look at my shoes and put my hands in my pockets

CHORUS
Track Name: Dirty
Lace ‘em up
Roll up my sleeves
Sweat pours out
My soul is pleased

Grit my teeth
The path is worn
Achin’ for you
I tread back home

Wash off the dirt
to get dirty with you
(Washin’ up, washin’ off… )
Tell me I’m clean
When all I want
Is to get dirty with you

***Solo section

Sunset eyes
Take away my sting
Diggin’ that ditch
Ain’t as hard as it seems

Chorus
Track Name: She Cut Her Fingernails
she had to cut her fingernails
just to learn how to play the guitar
how many women do you know
that would go that far

i know just one and she suits me so fine
she sends me texts all the time

manicured and kept real nice
she didn't take my advice
i said honey they look so good
how 'bout a new shade of opossum wood

she cut 'em anyway
no matter what i say
she's got her mind set on playin' today
she had to cut her fingernails
just to learn how to play the guitar
how many women do you know
that would go that far

*banjo/juice harp solo... hell yeah*

she used to dig 'em in my back

she had to cut her fingernails
just to learn how to play the guitar
how many women do you know
that would go that far

i want the chance to tell her
she's a regular james taylor
but she can't even hear me
'cause she's strummin' that 6-string again

see you long luscious fingernails
no more shades of red runnin' through my hair
i guess i'll have to get me another guitar

i guess i'm glad she took it this far
Track Name: SuckerPunch - Fossilized
dust off that leather-bound circus
pristine particles
obvious signs of slanted minds
bats fly through the skies
without any eyes
the odds are in disguise

fossilized tomfoolery is careless hot air
lag behind 1859
apes cry through their eyes
hypothetical lies
the odds are in disguise

dumb, dumb, dumb...
Track Name: A Trip to the Moon
alone I can't be
anxiety-free

A trip to the moon
wouldn't be so bad
time to myself
it'd be me and no one else
yeah a trip to the moon
wouldn't be so bad

said a trip to the moon
wouldn't be so bad
read all the books
I haven't read
a trip to the moon
wouldn't be so bad

oh lonely me
oh lonely me

a trip to the moon
wouldn't be so bad
write all the songs
left in my head
a trip to the moon
wouldn't be so bad

a trip to the moon
wouldn't be so bad
solve all the problems
just like my mama said
a trip to the moon
wouldn't be so bad
Track Name: March
No one here but me
any soul can plainly see

i've been on this path my entire life

not sure just why

I march to that beat
it belongs to me

I wish I could share it with you
but I can't

*break

amber stones and giant bones
from another time

another glass of wine

uncertain of the time

I march to that beat
it belongs to me

I wish I could share it with you
but I can't
