Track Name: Brooklyn Bridge
You crossed me once, you’ll cross me again.
The road less travelled is a fairweathered friend. Oh, Brooklyn Bridge.
I’m afraid of failure, I’m afraid to begin.
Turned out like a boy scout with no patch to stitch in. Oh, Brooklyn Bridge.

If you’re falling to the ground, just build it up.
If you’re falling to the ground, just build it up.
If you’re falling to the ground, Brooklyn Bridge is falling down.
Just Build it up.

You crossed me once, you’ll cross me again.
I’ve walked down roads, always know where they end. Oh, Brooklyn Bridge.
I sold my soul to the company man.
Walked out to sea to see what she meant. Oh, Brooklyn Bridge.

If you’re falling to the ground, just build it up.
If you’re falling to the ground, just build it up.
If you’re falling to the ground, Brooklyn Bridge is falling down.
Just Build it up.

You crossed me once, you’ll cross me again.
The road less travelled is a fairweathered friend.

If you’re falling to the ground, just build it up.
If you’re falling to the ground, just build it up.
If you’re falling to the ground, Brooklyn Bridge is falling down.
Just Build it up.
Track Name: Curse Words
The flame, it went out and believers had no doubts
That the fire it took its toll and buried you inside that hole
Girl, you freaked out and left me like a clown
All made up in shit, I’d rather be missed than hit

Curse your name, running through my veins
Curse your name, under you again

The darkness, it wore on and you hummed my swan song
The smoke it filled my lungs like a death from above
Girl, I lost my mind and left you back in time
All made up in sin, I’d rather it be me than him

Curse your name, running through my veins
Curse your name, under you again

You’re right, what’s left? I think my mind is going west
You’re right, what’s left?
I think my mind got lost again

Curse your name, running through my veins
Curse your name, under you again
Track Name: Life, Death & A Little Bit Of Self-Respect
I feel like death but I’m not dying, I tell the truth but I’m still lying
The ones you love will let you down, so I pick myself up off the ground

Quit feeling sorry for yourself, don’t let anyone shut your mouth
You fight, you fail, you scream, how dare you dream
Don’t let anyone hold you…

Down at the bottom you can rise to the top
Nothing good came easy, the strong don’t walk away
Hey, hey – you’re okay

I feel like life but I’m not trying, I see what you mean but I’m still blind
The ones you hate will lift you up, keep you on your feet, you’re so loved

Quit feeling sorry for yourself, don’t let anyone shut your mouth
You fight, you fail, you scream, how dare you dream
Don’t let anyone hold you…

Down at the bottom you can rise to the top
Nothing good came easy, the strong don’t walk away
Hey, hey – you’re okay

Quit feeling sorry for yourself, don’t let anyone shut your mouth
You fight, you fail, you scream, how dare you dream
Don’t let anyone hold you…

Down at the bottom you can rise to the top
Nothing good came easy,
It’s a long way to the bottom, like a rock I keep on rolling
Nothing good came easy, the strong don’t walk away
Hey, hey – you’re okay
Track Name: Shit-Eater
All you poets think you know it, it’s all Huck Finn and no Tom Sawyer
(All you poets you think that you know it)
All you lawyers high on fire, I’ll meet you down in the pyre
(All you lawyers high on fire)
Come on set yourself on fire

With my mouth full of shit, I’m starting to look like you

All you lovers run for cover, it’s all sunshine until you suffer
(All you lovers)
Come on lover, run for cover

With my mouth full of shit, I’m starting to look like you

You said, “you think you know it”
“You think you know me?”

With my mouth full of shit, I’m starting to look like you
Track Name: Digging Up Old Bones
The Beatles already did it so I might as well get stoned
And I’m feeling so alien maybe I should phone home
You told me, “Stop singing about ghosts”
So I’ll start digging up bones, oh yeah

I love you by the moon, I hate you by the sun
Roll me over Beethoven, I’m the chosen one
I told you, “Stop chasing them ghosts”
You’re impressing no one, oh yeah

You know what I want, I know what you need
We just want to feel something, they all believe in

You’re playing the victim but I’m just playing house
I’m 50 Marshall stacks, you’re quiet as a mouse
I told them to cut the lights
But you’re still acting out, oh yeah

You know what I want, I know what you need
We just want to feel something, they all believe in

You’d rather act like you’re alive
But it looks to me like we’re a dying breed
Love can come and love will go
It will always show off its snarling teeth

You know what I want, you know what I need
You just want to be someone that I believe
Track Name: Time Is Not A River
Bastard son of a mother on the run
Told time like the future through the barrel of a gun
When you tell the truth you’re bound to get shot
Damn the weather whether you like it or not
Let me tell you again

Hey, you’ve got the right to be gone
But I didn’t write every wrong or sing every song about you

Bastard sun of a culture on the cure
Time is not a river despite all the things you’ve heard
When you’re telling lies you’re bound to get by
Curse your luck whether you luck out or not
Let me tell you again

Hey, you’ve got the right to be gone
But I didn’t write every wrong or sing every song about you
Track Name: Houdini
Now you see me, now you don’t
Just leave your death on the basement floor
I want to be hit not missed but I feel like John The Baptist
Every single thing you touch turns to shit
I don’t want to hear it

I don’t want to hear it
I don’t want to fear it

Said you felt it but now you don’t
Just leave your noose on the bedroom door
I want to believe I’m missed but I feel like John The Baptist
Every single thing you touch turns to shit
I don’t want to hear it

I don’t want to hear it
I don’t want to fear it

I don’t want to be your man
Fairweathered friend out on the lam
Take a ride, passerby, seek and hide
Straight into the void of the spirtless

I don’t want to hear it
I don’t want to fear it
Track Name: Lose Your Head
Hallowed be thy name, past or presence it’s all the same.
If you’re calling out for me, I’ll be howling out in vane.

Don’t lose your head.

All hail the music man, traitor don’t you hear the way he sang?
If you’re singing out in the middle of the night than death to all the ones who sold out the light.

Don’t lose your head.
Don’t lose your head, don’t you come around here again.
You’re gonna lose your head if you come around here again.

I will destroy you, I’ll be the man who.
I will destroy you, I’ll be the man who.
Sells myself off to, those who consumed you.
I will destroy you, I’m howling out for you.

Don’t lose your head.
Don’t lose your head, don’t you come around here again.
You’re gonna lose your head if you come around here again.
You’re gonna lose your head.
Track Name: Stone and Undulation
Wanna feel so good it hurts,
Wanna get paid but I don’t want to work
Wanna live before I die, do some drugs and kiss the sky
Wanna float out passed the light
Wanna get fucked up and become the night
Wanna die by your side, when Jesus comes I won’t hide

These are a few of my favorite things
But I’ve never done any of them
Gonna be someone tonight, gonna get messed up and die

Wanna be the man my father was
Don’t wanna be a casualty of the cause
Wanna live forever in the past
But the truth is coming down on me fast
Wanna be right about everything
Never seen a fight that I cannot win
Hail, Hail rock and roll, when Jesus comes I won’t go

These are a few of my favorite things
But I’ve never done any of them
Gonna be someone tonight, gonna get messed up and die
Track Name: Your Shadow
I want to meet somebody new so I can
pretend to be somebody else for a while
I want to fall in love again so I can
pretend to love the man that I’ve become
I’m my father’s son, I’m a child again

I want to be your shadow so I can
hurt the ones who’ve put you down and sold you out
I want to believe in something else
but I’m just rotting meat that swears and sleeps until you’ve gone
it won’t be long till I’m judged for these things

Come on come and get me, strike me down, cut off my head
Feeling like a zombie, wandering like the living dead
Maybe I’ll be better on the other side

I want to meet someone old so I can
pretend that you’re the one who’s changed the most
I think I want to cry this time so I can
Feel the hate that navigates you back to me
The hate you feel is trying to find a home

Come on come and get me, strike me down, cut off my head
Feeling like a zombie, wandering like the living dead
Maybe I’ll be better on the other side

I want to be your shadow
I don’t want to be all alone
