Track Name: Go Get Stoned
When you call me on the phone
I just wanna go get stoned to forget everything that you've said
When I'm finally alone
I'll pretend that I'm stoned, with the Holy Bible as my head
When you sucker punch my bones
I just wanna go get stoned and there's not a reason to be dead
When you finally come home
I just want to go get stoned and lay in our rotting bed

You'll be home real soon
And I'm lying on the floor
When you get home real soon
I'll meet you by the door

When you call me on the phone
I just wanna go get stoned and forget everything that you've said
When I'm finally all alone
I'll pretend that I'm stoned, with a coffin smile for you
When you sucker punch my bones
I just wanna go get stoned and there's not enough me for you
When you finally come home
I just want to go get stoned and lay in our rotting bed
Track Name: I-65
Cincy seems so close, but Nashville, feels like home.
And 65 will leave me dry on gasoline.

I'm hypnotized by midnight headlights
When the sirens come singing a round
And with a light of my last cigarette
I can burn this city to the ground
I'm hypnotized by midnight headlights
While you're finally getting out of town
And with a light of my last cigarette
I can burn this city to the ground

Tonight, let's go look at the city
Tonight, I'll say that you look so pretty
Tonight, let's go look at the city
Tonight, I'm finally done with my misery

We don't have much time to waste.
Twenty four floors above the pavement
At seventy miles an hour, I'm gone
South bound from your country home
But you waited for the right time
To chime in with one last goodbye,
"I'll see you again come summer time."
And if I never see you again, then I'll be fine.

Tonight, let's go look at the city
Tonight, I'll say you look so pretty
Tonight, let's go look at the city
Tonight, I'm finally done with my misery
Tonight, let's get out of this city
Tonight, I don't think you look so pretty
Tonight, let's get out of this city
Tonight, I'm in love with misery cause

Cincy seems so close, but Nashville, feels like home.
And 65 will leave me dry on gasoline.
Cincy seems so close, but Nashville, feels like home.
And 65 will leave me dry on gasoline.
Cincy seems so close, but Nashville, feels like home.
And 65 will leave me dry on gasoline.
Yeah, 65 will leave me dry on gasoline.
Track Name: Minute Key
I still got a key to your apartment and I keep it by my side
Like I keep you in my mind to live from time to time
I still got a key to your apartment. I'll drop by when you're not around
Take in all the senses while you stay out of town
I still got a key to your apartment where you're safe from my confines
I'm sure I still fill your apartment with worry all the time

And my blood soaked through the walls to you
Like red wine you'd use to soothe
The fire that lived in you
I'll keep what I know true
You said, "I'm coming back for you"

And I'm bleeding out on the floor
After I'd soaked you in all my pores
When I'm done bleeding on the floor
I'll stop.
Feeling sorry for myself
Stop feeling sorry for yourself

And my blood soaked through the walls to you
Like red wine you'd use to soothe
The fire that lived in you
I'll keep what I know true
You said, "I'm never coming back for you"
Track Name: The Broken Thief / Methamphetamine
Hold my tongue and hope to die, forked love and bloodshot eyes
A broken thief ensnared in lies sends dreams to cloudy skies
Tears on cheeks, you never cry, I never learned, you never tried
A broken thief ensnared in lies sends dreams to cloudy skies

Am I a prince or a pauper? Keeping secrets like a coffin
Wrap them up mummy, tight, wheezing lungs, forgetting nights
The room it always starts to spin, you'll never be this calm again
Wrap you up, safe and tight, a whiskey kiss to say goodnight
If I call, you'll never know I'll just wait and walk alone

Headlights way up in the sky, pilot's gonna take his life, but
I hope that he keeps you safe drifting over Atlantic wake
When you land just let me know if you'll stay or if you'll go
I'll run along, find someone new, maybe she'll look a
Little like you, a little like you, a little like you
Maybe she'll look a little like you

My baby gets too high on methamphetamine
She does it just to chase away her bad dreams
Where she fights every demon from Satan's side
While she sits all alone in her bed and cries

I'm a Casanova, with no baby in my bed
Make 'em all swoon, from thoughts inside of my head
I'm such a snake charmer, bribing all of you in
Old lady sells snake oil and we all love to sin

My baby gets too high on methamphetamine
Had her an abortion at the age of seventeen
And she fought with the good Lord until he died
While she sat all alone in her bed and cried

And when I hear you cough, I might catch my breath
And when I see you walk, I might miss a step
And when I hear you laugh, I might roll my eyes
And when I see you smile, I think I might die
And when I hear you cough, I might catch my breath
And when I see you walk, I might miss a step
And when I hear you laugh, I might roll my eyes
And when I see you smile, I think I might die
Track Name: Nighthawks
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Sleep Alone
We walked into the bar and something caught my eye
Maybe it's the liquor or maybe it's your hair
Either way, I'm heading over there
Take another shot of liquid courage strength
I'll need it to get out of this rusty cage
The girls take their shots to lose focus
The boys break bottles to fuel their hate

But I'm gonna take you home and i'll keep you safe
While those pricks at the bar
Learn what it really means. To sleep alone

Why would you give me a second glance?
A miserable romantic, introvert
Maybe it's the "Fuck it" attitude
Maybe it's the way I touch your skin
It doesn't really matter, I'll take what I get
It doesn't really matter, you'll take what you win
When you take me home, remove all your clothes
When I take you home, I'm sleeping alone

But I'm gonna take you home and i'll keep you safe
Yeah, I'll take you home and i'll keep you safe
While those pricks at the bar
Learn what it feels like. To sleep alone
Track Name: Cheap Wine & State Lines
A hundred miles a minute and I think I'm gettin' sick
A sip for every second-hand tick this medicine hit's quick
The world keeps on spinnin' and I'm not havin' any fun
You feel a bit suicidal, I'm just a man holdin' a gun

We're passing brand new state lines and chasing it with cheap wine
These spins are sinking in, kicking ass in double time
But whiskey makes you angry and vodka makes me sick
Wine is for the hipsters and beer just tastes like piss
We're passing brand new state lines and chasing it with cheap wine
These spins are sinking in, kicking ass in double time
But whiskey makes you angry and vodka makes me sick
Wine is for the hipsters and beer just tastes like piss

There's snow on my tongue and we're not having any fun
Your suicide comes and I'm just a man holding a gun
What a great way to die, what a sad way of life
You tell me you love me, but I know it's a lie
There's snow on my tongue and we're not having any fun
Your suicide comes and I'm just a man holding a gun
What a great way to die, what a sad way of life
You tell me you love me, but I know it's a lie
It's a great way to die, and a sad way of life
You tell me you love me, but I know it's a lie
Track Name: Biding Time
Please say you'll come alone tonight
Keep me warm by this fire's side
Maybe I'm a cotton mouthed liar, but you bit, hooked on the wire
And it's time to go home tonight
Please say that you'll be just fine
So I can go to sleep tonight and dream of my own
Bullets pacing, waiting for the time to strike
But I'm fine just biding my own time

Please say you'll come alone tonight
I've got some new wrongs to right by my own mind
And I don't have enough room for two
Please say you'll keep me in your mind
Where I'll live in safety all the time until you
Forget how my voice sounds and it fades away too

Please say that you'll be just fine
So I can go to sleep tonight and dream of my own
Bullets pacing, waiting for the time to strike
But I'm fine just biding my time
But I'm fine just biding my time
Track Name: Family Pride
Do you remember when I was five
And you took me by your side
Said you had to go for a week long holiday
Do you remember the tears that I cried
Or the sadness in your eyes
That said you'd be back for me, come Sunday
You never wanted it to get this bad
And you never wanted to let me down

It's hard for a man to choose
When you don't know what to do
And the addiction controls you
It's hard for a man to say
When there is no other way
Than to fight your only way of life

I've watched my father fight
For every night of his life
With that demon perched on his shoulder
And he's never given up
Or needed some kind of crutch
To kill that demon on his shoulder

It's never hard to say something such as this
I've always been so proud of you, dad
It's never hard to say something such as this
I've always been so proud of you, dad
Track Name: I'll Be Fine
I'm caught walking around this dead end town
Again on a sleepless summer night
I walk from the welcome sign on 2nd street to the bar on Maple
You know, a lot has changed over the years,
It's like a whole new world
No, I'll be fine. I don't need a ride.
Could you find me anyway? No, I'll be fine
I'm living the insomniatic static
While you all feign sleep in your houses
Mental seduction and heavy breathing keeps me awake like
A politician's smile and a snake charmer's laugh
Someone's out there hiding something and I can feel it
But I'm an apparition: desperate and invisible
Am I a ghost or a man?
