(mischief party time) Let everyone know That sadness comes and goes You’re going to see a little bit of death On the side of the road, Side of the road, side of the road A little bit of death on the side of the road Well you can’t speak for me I’ve hidden the meaning When everything’s said and done I count myself the lucky one And I won’t give up the ghost I just hang on and I stay afloat My daddy always smiled and my momma never moped So I won’t give up the ghost She tells me of her years Liberated from fears She shakes a fist in the air And knows that time takes care Cause I won’t give up the ghost I just hang on and I stay afloat My daddy always smiled and my momma never moped So I won’t give up the ghost Is it worth the work? Well I don’t know Whatcha goin’ find down in that hole Well my daddy he always smiled And my momma never moped, 1 2 3 4 Well I won’t give up the ghost I just hang on and I stay afloat My daddy always smiled and my momma never moped So I won’t give up the ghost No I won’t give up the ghost I just hang on and I stay afloat My daddy always smiled and my momma never moped So I won’t give up the ghost

Last Drop 04:19
I always seem to paint another landscape I try and tell myself we use the same paint Will being bitter help me to relate? Being honest is a risk I don’t take I wear this smile in some glorified state You talked me out of feeling okay I let you drink the last drop And watched it go down Astonished by my own fault Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why I keep you around? What was appealing now feels like a hole Going down and down this endless scroll And I resent giving up my control I let you drink the last drop And watched it go down Astonished by my own fault Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why I keep you around? Run, run, run and I tell myself I need to go faster Run, run, run and I tell myself I just can’t catch her That’s why I need a break, I need you to go away That’s why I need a break, I need you to go away Oo, oo, oo Oo, oo, oo Oo, oo, oo I guess I am just all about myself And after all this unnecessary help I choose to direct my attention somewhere else I let you drink the last drop And watched it go down Astonished by my own fault Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why I keep you around?

All My Life 03:00
I didn’t have anything left You came along and said, “Baby what’s next?” I couldn’t spend my whole life waiting on you You’ll be the one dream that I’ll make come true Darling, you will be mine, you will be mine Darling, you will be mine all my life, by my side You made me cry when I heard that song I needed to tell my story for so long You took one step into my world And I’ll take great care to appreciate you there Darling, I will be yours, I will be yours Darling, I will be yours all my life, by your side Darling, I will be yours, I will be yours Darling, I will be yours all my life, by your side

One night I went out to take a walk To clear my mind I looked down to the ground but I could feel somebody’s eyes From behind It was a girl that I once knew Happy as the sky is blue Made me think to myself Well she has got so far to go She don’t even know Well that night thunder broke Lightning flashed and the rain fell from the sky And drowned the night I didn’t know where to go Who to hold what shelter I could find To stay dry Well that girl said, “hey you listen here” I’ve got something I could share The love I know it may be old Something you thought you’d outgrown But it never lost its hold And you’ve got to keep your ways about you, Your ways about you And sometimes they may not understand you They may not understand you Well I stared at her and she stared at me Soon I felt a familiar feeling creeping on in There’s a sadness behind those eyes from something buried deep inside And kept from mind Well I know I’ve felt this way before But these revelations are becoming a bore She told me this was nothing new And I’ve got to find some way, some way to push on through And you’ve got to keep your ways about you, Your ways about you And sometimes they may not understand you They may not understand you But you’ve got to keep your ways about you, Your ways about you And sometimes they may not understand you They may not understand you Well one night I went out to take a walk To clear my mind I looked down to the ground But only found the rocks and cracks Staring on back

I stare into your face to find you Time won’t matter If I could break with all I’ve wasted Time won’t matter When a late night turns to daylight Time won’t matter And I’m left here to leave all my fears Time won’t matter If you’ve got one thing on your mind It better be to be here with me all the time One more time I will tell you that you are so out of touch it kills me But I don’t have anything better to do Run until they try to catch you Time won’t matter First is the worst but second’s no better Time won’t matter If nothing gets done then wander on cause Time won’t matter And I’ll be seeing you so don’t be blue Time won’t matter If you’ve got one thing on your mind It better be to be here with me all the time One more time I will tell you that you are so out of touch it kills me But I don’t have anything better to do Give me purpose, filled with answers Don’t forget some people get cancer And I, I’m racking my mind Just to find how to stay kind When your insides are thriving on some kind of blindness Then time is left to survive Is left to decide, is left to decide

Big Top 03:49
You had your left hand on my heart right from the start and if you should go well I might fall apart I thought I struck gold at least that’s what I was told by my inner dialogue, I’ve been alone for so long Everything you lost, you lost in a heap I didn’t even recognize what I chose to keep Well you existed to get me this far now go get your ass in your expensive car and leave me be, cause I stopped listening And the big top goes excuse me, Well I’m just passing through ya see Make no mistake, I was here for today and I’ll be on my way I saw life real small until they told me to think big I put all the weight of the world on one trivial thing Well get yourself together before you go on living Cause I’m sick of trying and lying to myself And the big top goes excuse me, Well I’m just passing through ya see Make no mistake, I was here for today and I’ll be on my way And the big top goes excuse me, Well I’m just passing through ya see Make no mistake, I was here for today and I’ll be on my way You’ve got a lovely town Well I can’t stick around but I see why you do And I know that you’ll be anything I want but nothing I need You’ve got a lovely town Well I can’t stick around but I see why you do And I know that you’ll be anything I want but nothing I need And the big top goes excuse me, (Beg your pardon) Well I’m just passing through ya see (We really must be going) Make no mistake (This show is one night and one night only) I was here for today and I’ll be on my way And the big top goes excuse me (Thank you so much for your patronage) Well I’m just passing through ya see (Exit to the sides and rear) Make no mistake, I was here for today and I’ll be on my way (Give yourselves a round of applause) Make no mistake I was here for today (Get home safely now) and I’ll be on my way (Get outta here kid, you bother me)

Well I walked in Looked around Found a little tiny table And I sat down Had a drink At the little tiny table She came in Said what can I say To make you have a better day What can I say and I said, and I said Come on sit down Come on sit down Come on sit down Come on sit down with me I might have some big plans But I didn’t write them down And I might understand when you say you don’t have The time to get out of town, To get out of town, To get out of town And I said and I said come sit down Come on sit down Come on sit down Come on sit down Come on sit down with me Won’t you come, won’t come, won’t you come on sit down Won’t you come, won’t come, won’t you come on sit down Won’t you come, won’t come, won’t you come on sit down Won’t you come, won’t come, won’t you come on sit down And I said and I said come on sit down Won’t you come, won’t come, won’t you come on sit down With me, won’t you come, won’t come, won’t you come on sit down With me, won’t you come, won’t come, come on sit down And I said and I said come on sit down

Myself 03:53
Well I tense up and I forget my lines And you just sit there trying to read my mind And I think to myself What did I do this time? I need to take a pause and then hit rewind But I can’t, so I won’t And I bleed cause I’m broke And I hope cause if I don’t One by one hearts begin to realize And two by two people’s lives become intertwined But I find myself alone at the end of the day Feeling like a kid when no one can come out and play And the games aren’t as fun When you’re not playing with someone How can you stop something that has already begun? Oh, quiet tears can only be explained in the rain And a heavy mind sinks down in time But the heart can’t hold the weight Oh, quiet tears can only be explained in the rain And a heavy mind sinks down in time But the heart can’t hold the weight Can’t hold the weight, can’t hold the weight No it can’t and it won’t And it bleeds cause it’s broke And I hope that you know Well I’m gonna laugh and cry from time to time Whether you sit there or leave I’ll be just fine I take a look at myself And stop pulling apart the lines I have what I have and life is letting me get by Gotta sort through the thoughts What I am, what I’m not Live the sound and the moment

Drained 03:28
Take my money for the train Don’t you know that everyone’s got somewhere to go? Well I live alone In a quiet house at the bottom of a hill And I used to walk a lot Just to clear my mind But now when I walk I’m just reminded of those thoughts Nothing’s what it was And my resentment is frustrating A life that once was Well it never amounted to anything And makes loving that much harder Makes the night that much darker and sorry is just a worn out word That never has an honest reply I can get down on myself But I think I enjoy the cry Does something for myself Washed away in a lullaby Why is it that I hold this pain? Try and see my fault in the blame and two sides just rack my brain and I am left feeling, a little drained, a little drained, a little drained

In the Dark 03:50
You feel you’re choking randomly You feel you’re choking randomly But it’s okay, it allows for space, To see what’s in between My thoughts turn on me and I can’t breathe My thoughts turn on me and I can’t breathe Contentment’s lost from my mind It really drives home reality I’ll tell you just a little bit more about it In the dark of the room You listen with an open mind and soon It’s filled with words That quietly cause the hurt To be thankful is no small thing To be thankful is no small thing I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours Maybe then we’ll deplete the feeling I’ll tell you just a little bit more about it In the dark of the room You listen with an open mind and soon It’s filled with words That quietly cause the hurt And I have no clue what’s going on I have no clue what going on It’s too much my dear friend you’re strong than me It’s time we take some much needed rest
