Track Name: Waves
She's on my mind
She's mighty fine
Beams, bends and breaks
Dreams, burst and quake

Maybe
I'll come home to you

She's my best part
She's my clean start
Need the time of day
Please just run away

Maybe
These bones won't break
Maybe
You're meds I'll take
Maybe, you’re not alone
Loser, just go home, and die.
Track Name: Loser
If today was an endless sunset,
then tomorrow is a frozen pond,
I’ll take my chances walking on it,
and build myself a fire if I need to be thawed

Don’t run away from me tonight,
Just stay with me till 6 in the morn,
That’s when the sun she rises highest
As if she’d just been born
That’s when I’ll pack up my guitar,
and east with the wind
I’m still a loser searching for a win

I get dizzy just by staying in one place,
and I’m sick of my old neighborhood,
the kids they all wear the same face,
but being sick of my old man and his back porch I never could

Don’t run away from me tonight,
Just stay with me till 6 in the morn,
That’s when the sun she rises highest
As if she’d just been born
That’s when I’ll pack up my guitar,
and east with the wind
I’m still a loser searching for a win
Track Name: How to be a Man in Texas
Keep it locked up inside man, its time to let (her) go
your brothers and your mother and your father they all think so..
Keep it locked up inside man, its time to move on
there’s no point in writing another positively useless song

It’s a shame
It’s bad news
But who’s to blame?
The risks of love, you knew

Thinking of drinking again, man that’s screwed up
You already promised so many people that you would give it up
Thinking of sinking again, man we all do
But the poets and the play writes and the painters rarely follow through

Its a shame
when they do
who’s to blame?
the risks of truth, they knew

its a shame
its just the blues
and I’m to blame,
the risks of love, and truth, and song, I knew

Keep it locked up inside man, its just a bad day
Its time to be a man and that means having nothing real to say..
Track Name: Song About a Girl
Thinking about you again
Some thinking’s better when it ends
I fell asleep on a boat
Some drifting’s better when you don’t, isn’t it?

Traction just isn’t my friend
This sliding never seems to end
Until I stand my ground
Some buried treasure’s never found, isn’t it?

Running away just isn’t the way to fix up yourself,
Especially when you run past me into somebody else,
I’ve tried endlessly to see that you know that I love you,
What’s a man to do?

Falling for you again
Some falling’s better when it ends
I just can’t live like this
Paycheck to paycheck, kiss to kiss, shouldn’t I?

Talked to my brother on the phone,
He stays out late he’s never home,
He says he thinks he found the one
If love’s a lottery then he’s won, - hasn’t he?
But what about me?

Running away just isn’t the way to fix up yourself,
Especially when you run past me into somebody else,
I’ve tried endlessly to see that you know that I love you,
What’s a man, I said what’s a man, I said what’s a boy to do.
Track Name: Block of Ice
She’s a fire on a cold dark night
attracted men lose their sight
I’m a moth drunk on flight
Warm me up, burn me bright

Met her at a show in town
her hair was long she wore a crown
all my words they hit the ground,
She loved the band, but turned me down

Gone, she was gone, she was gone,

She once was a block of ice
freezing out a former life
I took some salt and broke her down
into the lake in which I drown

Gone, I am gone, over her, I am gone, over her

I saw her last friday night
we spent the night intertwined
I don’t need whiskey with her in my life
She keeps me drunk, like Gatsby’s light

Gone, I am gone, over her, I am gone, over her
