Track Name: Fucked Up
Torture me, put me down
Slap my face, I won’t frown
I’m in love with the wrong girl
I was born in the wrong world
Gonna see who I wanna see
Gonna be who I wanna be

I’m fucked up
That’s just how I like it
So fucked up
That’s just how I like it

I forget, everything
I forgive, when I sing
I’m in love with the long road
When I die where will I go
The lord he forsake me
And the devil won't take me

I’m fucked up
That’s just how I like it
So fucked up
That’s just how I like it
Track Name: Friends
Leave your brains on the lawnchair
A long, long way from here
All the people stop to watch you drop
Watch you float away

I wonder when you called me friend
For the first time
Maybe over a bottle of wine
I lost a gift but I gained a ring
A common giveaway

It’s up to me now
To find a way somehow
Some things are just too beautiful to give away

Next time around I won’t act like a clown
Not watered down, I’m a holy man now
Gonna raise you from that mausoleum
She’s my beauty queen, so I gotta find a way
Track Name: Standing in the Window
I’m running hot
But my blood is cold
Just hanging ‘round
Well it's getting old
My hands are bruised
My heart is black
My baby’s gone
She won’t come back

Something’s wrong with me
I been crawling around in the dark baby I can’t see
Been flying high
Been laying low
Been singing songs to an angel standing in the window

I’m shakin’ up
Too much too soon
I’m breaking down
Howl at the moon
Oh won’t you gimme a sign
Before I break
There’s only so much this poor man can take

Something’s wrong with me
I been crawling around in the dark baby I can’t see
Been flying high
Been laying low
Been singing songs to an angel standing in the window

Oh but what can I do?
When all I can think about is you…

Something’s wrong with me
I been crawling around in the dark baby I can’t see
Been flying high
Been laying low
Been singing songs to an angel standing in the window
Track Name: Chickie and the Toad
Why did the chickie cross the road?
To give a little kiss to the ugly old toad
“I’m so glad you came my way but I’m not gonna let you get away.”

I’m gonna make you mine
Nowhere left to hide

Well Chickie got scared and she wanted to leave but the toad had another trick up his sleeve
“There’s one way out of this muddy hole you gotta sing me a song with all your soul.”

I’m gonna make you mine
You’re gonna be my bride

Chickie sang with a haunted desperation that only a prisoner could know

Toad looked Chickie straight in the eye said “I think it’s time I let this songbird fly”
But Chickie never sang like that before and said “Think I’ll stick around and learn a little more”

I’m gonna make you mine
All I need is time
Track Name: Burn it Down
People try to inform me of my mistakes
But I never get to fall down that way
Outside, see the bright lights, underneath them
Come on away, come on away
Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down
Burn it down, down to the ground, burn it down

Under the bright lights you shine like a star
When you’re hot like the Sun it’s so easy to get burned

People often tell me of their problems
But I never get to slow down that way
Inside something peaceful serenades me
Come on away, come on away
Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down
Burn it down, down to the ground, burn it down

Under the bright lights you shine like a star
When you’re hot like the sun it’s so easy to get burned
