Track Name: Money I Don't Own
Money I Don’t Own

You nearly sent me to the brink
After the ending started, whoa oh
When you find out what you think
About what I wanted
You’ll have to let me know

Because time equals money
And you know it’s not funny
When nobody’s got the time to spend it
And this gig is nothing more than an old stale acquaintance
And you know that it’s time to unfriend it

Go shopping for a new kitchen sink
Yeah if I bought it
You’d probably let me go
But without that kitchen sink
Yeah what you started
Can’t wash my hands of anyhow

Time equals money
And you know it’s not funny
When nobody’s got the time to spend it
And this gig is nothing more than an old stale acquaintance
And you know that it’s time to unfriend it

Because time equals money
And you know it’s not funny
When nobody’s got the time to spend it
And this gig is nothing more than an old stale acquaintance
And you know that it’s time to unfriend it
Track Name: Dreaming The Life
Dreaming The Life

I’m gearing up for a late night after a long day
Making sense of a feeling I’ve never known
Bottle fed, grain fed, growing pains, nose bled
You start to wonder if it’s overblown

It’s like the kids like to say…

I’m riding coattails
Slowly fading away
Steam engine with no rails
Just a dollar to play

It’s never hip to say…

The old college try’s never tried and tested
Leaving my watermark on a desert plain
Try to do something that’ll never be bested
Find my umbrella long after the rain

It’s like the kids like to say….

I’m flying coach class
Living on water and bread
Crawl through the fire and tall grass
Well over my head

It’s never hip to say…

It’s like the kids like to say…

I’m flying coach class
Living on water and bread
Crawl through the fire and tall grass
Well over my head

It’s never hip to say…
Track Name: Burn Away
Burn Away

I’ve been waiting
So I’ll sit and write a while
A whole lot of something
I just throw it on the pile

If you’ve got wheels I think we’ll take a spin
Just roll the top down as the clouds come in

You take the long way ‘round
We pick up speed on every corner
I could be safe and sound home in my bed
Isn’t that nice?
I’m bound to lose my mind if I don’t concentrate
On every time I inspirate
Only today
Step on it man
Burn away

I’ve been walking
Through this lonely building I know
The voices are talking
And about this time I let go

If you’ve got matches I think we’ll throw one in
Let’s see what hatches fire and gasoline

You take the long way ‘round
We pick up speed on every corner
I could be safe and sound home in my bed
Isn’t that nice?
I’m bound to lose my mind if I don’t concentrate
On every time I inspirate
Only today
Step on it man
Burn away
Track Name: Looking Bad/Feeling Worse
Looking Bad/Feeling Worse

Standing by the side of the tracks
I got sidetracked and lost my train of thought
And missed my train
Story of my life it seems
Intentions are good but only in dreams
When I wake up the pieces don’t fit
So I tell myself to just roll with it
All night

Well my voice is coarse, my eyes not stable
And I’ll ride a dead horse ‘til I’m not able
And my hands are tied, my boots are shaking
Since the deal with the devil my hand was making
These are the sort of things I’ve learned to accept

Don’t recall the last time I was first
I’m looking bad and feeling worse
Try to speak my thoughts to you
But every time my lips are pursed
Now I’m looking bad and feeling worse

Confident I seem, high self-esteem
But subconsciously, a self-conscious me
Looking for a lucky coin but the last one’s tossed
Now I search for a map just to get lost
Just to get lost now

Don’t recall the last time I was first
I’m looking bad and feeling worse
Try to speak my thoughts to you
But every time my lips are pursed
Now I’m looking bad and feeling worse

You’re pretty, and I’m a good-looking man
But I’m pretty good at looking bad

Don’t recall the last time I was first
I’m looking bad and feeling worse
Try to speak my thoughts to you
But every time my lips are pursed
Now I’m looking bad and feeling worse
Track Name: Nowhere But Up
Nowhere But Up

You and me, two of a kind
We’ve been circling far too long
I’ve been searching inside of myself
But that which I lack I found in somebody else

After the storm, I’m coming home
It’ll be you and me together and I’ll keep you warm
It’s a long way to ground just don’t look down
No half-empty cup, nowhere but up

I was afraid, that was so long ago
We were delayed, I needed time to grow
If this is my party, I’m so glad we threw it
As for my happiness, so glad you could help with it

After the storm, I’m coming home
It’ll be you and me together and I’ll keep you warm
It’s a long way to ground just don’t look down
No half-empty cup, nowhere but up

Wood floor, if only you could talk
Carry the weight of the my house to your grave
Wood floor, if only you could walk
A mile in my shoes on your face

After the storm, I’m coming home
It’ll be you and me together and I’ll keep you warm
It’s a long way to ground just don’t look down
No half-empty cup, nowhere but up
No half-empty cup, nowhere but up
Track Name: Bright Side
Bright Side

Please don’t take it the wrong way
When I say you’re a terrible dancer
When I give you tongue and cheek
I get no tongue from you
I’ll agree we fight too much
But we’re bound to live angrily ever after
Next time don’t draw your gun if you don’t intend to shoot, yeah!

I’d be happier writing a sad song
Make it rain inside
No blood, no sweat, just tears
Now I’m emotionally satisfied
And I’d be happier riding the wrong bus
With no end in sight
I’m lost but I’ve found just what I need
Come get lost with me

Well a fella told me I was melancholy
He said, wipe this smile onto your face
I’d probably pick up what you’re putting down
Any other time, any other place

Happier riding the wrong bus
With no end in sight
I’m lost but I’ve found just what I need
I’d be happier waking up early
Than dream about losing sleep
Just lay there on the bright side of my bed
Come find the bright side with me

Well the fact is this is probably fiction
But if said with enough conviction
Then I would have no problem
Believing all the bullshit

Happier writing a sad song
Make it rain inside
I’m lost but I’ve found just what I need
I’d be happier waking up early
Than dream about losing sleep
Just lay there on the bright side of my bed
Come find the bright side with me
Track Name: Somewhere In The Middle
Somewhere In The Middle

The siren’s moan and the glasses that shatter
After a while it’s white noise
But what the hell would you know for that matter?
No way you could run with my boys

It’s 4pm could you hold off a while?
The boys are rolling like it’s going out of style
Someone in the backyard forcing a smile
Wondering who’s gonna clean this up later
All of us try to squeeze blood from a stone
For the love of the game, could you leave it alone?
I’m out in the rain and I’m chilled to the bone
Caught between a rock and a cheese grater

But if it feels alright for you
Well that’s just fine with me

Somewhere in the middle of nowhere
I’m caught in the middle of someone else’s problems
Funny thing about it I don’t care
Because it wouldn’t make a difference even if I could solve one
Firework fires, the squeal of the tires
Electrified wires, you’ll see when you go there
Somewhere in the middle of nowhere
And I’m lost, man

Leave it alone, I screamed, it’s not that kind of world
Leave it alone, I screamed, it’s not that kind of world

The siren’s moan and the glasses that shatter
After a while it’s white noise
But what the hell would you know for that matter?
No way you could run with my boys

But if it feels alright for you
Well that’s just fine with me

Somewhere in the middle of nowhere
I’m caught in the middle of someone else’s problems
Funny thing about it I don’t care
Because it wouldn’t make a difference even if I could solve one
Firework fires, the squeal of the tires
Electrified wires, you’ll see when you go there
Somewhere in the middle of nowhere
And I’m lost, man

Leave it alone, I screamed, it’s not that kind of world
Leave it alone, I screamed, it’s not that kind of world
