Evil Times 04:05
We all live in evil times We all live in evil times Take this message and pass it on down the line We all live in evil times We all want the truth We all want the truth Take a club and beat the man in a black suit We all want the truth We all need to help our fellow man We all need to help our fellow man Spare a dollar if you can We all need to help our fellow man We all need more love We all need more love When you think you’ve had enough We all need more love We all live in evil times We all live in evil times Take this message and pass it on down the line We all live in evil times

Long Goodbye 03:25
There is something You should know I am tempted But you have to go Pack your suit case Fold your dress I had a good time But I must confess That it’s time for you to go Memories haunt us and then we die We hurt each other Then we lie It’s a shame to lose this It’s a crime to run Just when it started and now it’s done Now it’s time for you to go Now it’s time for you to go You were my inspiration Now you’re my lone distraction You can’t trust what you believe There is something And now you know Your Eve with Apple But you have to go It’s a shame to lose this It’s a crime to run Just when it started and now it’s done Now it’s time for you to go Now it’s time for you to go

Freeway UFOs 04:19
He was a dropout artist He had a five year plan He met her out of college He never met her old man He shifted it to park on the side of the road made love under the stars her skin illuminating her skin illuminating! Under them freeway UFOs She quit her job in Ojai He took a job in sales The money was decent But the drive was hell They married in September Leased a house in June A year while later She left his life in ruin He shifted it to park on the side of the road he slept under the stars car illuminating skin illuminating! under them Freeway UFOs

Inside and outside, where does it hurt Over and under digging in the dry dirt You can’t believe in what you cannot see Inside and outside, among the tall weeds Upside and downside, how do you feel falling and climbing, like a ferris wheel You can’t deceive the people you need Upside and downside, when you can’t breathe Running and walking, where will you go stopping and starting, rocking’n slow-mo You can’t rely on the feelings you feel Running and walking the hearts you must steal You’re fading away and you feel alone, all alone You're fading away and you feel alone, all alone, alone, alone Inside and outside, where does it hurt Over and under digging in the dry dirt You can believe in what you can’t see Inside and outside, among the tall weeds

Alone in the house, are thieves Darkest of eyes and gum swollen teeth They pray for you soul, and steal The only thing that you will enjoy Cut to your bone, and bleed Shallow the heart, and quick witted stare Tempted by fate and see What you have done, and what you will be Don’t call the enemy Don’t call for God Don’t fall for anything Don’t throw the rock You take the bullet and I’ll take the fall You crawl the ground and I’ll climb the wall Eyes wide open, and heart beats Chest tight and aches like a knife in your gut Shadows they crawl and scream A wretched disfigured, shadowed like fiend Don’t call the enemy Don’t call for God Don’t fall for anything Don’t throw the rock You take the bullet and I’ll take the fall You crawl the ground and I’ll climb The Wall The Wall The Wall Watch me Fall Watch Me Fall Watch Me Fall I need something to help me sleep Something that’ll put me deep I need something to make me smile Put me under for a while Can you help me Can you help me Can you help me Can you help me Can you help me mother please, fall asleep

I remember when You were small and grinning I couldn’t understand The Feeling I was feeling Time slips away, Time slips away… The hours sift through days The clock hand spins and tells Your bones stretched out in ways That makes you look like me It goes by.. Like a setting sun It goes by.. Like traveling one and It scares me .. and I cannot sleep and It scares me.. it will be the death of me, the death of me the death of me I remember when When you said that, i love you I couldn’t understand I couldn’t comprehend

I Pray 04:13
She said she was sick and that she was going to die Because she had sex with some strange guy That contracted AIDs from another guy He knew a family whose house burned down The cat was in flames the fish boiled and drowned Like some twisted story that you read about. I pray, and I prayed I pray, and I prayed I prayed so Everything Is Gonna Be Alright. A Soviet Colonel sold Nukes to a man of Syrian descent But lives in Japan though no one quite knows Where he is right now. The glaciers are melting the weather is fucked If you want a glass of water in LA you’re out of luck But the mansion’s green lawns look really good. You believe in God, He believes in Allah She believes in Oprah, can you give her a holla? I believe that we all just die You might be right, I’m sure as hell wrong But I can’t think of a better song To sing for you all and to all a good night

Why Do I 02:40
Taking my time on losing my mind looking for a sign or clue I am writing a letter, a post note reminder, a long 3 ring binder double sided letter to you I’ve been in love I’ve been broke up I’ve been bankrupt, drunk and blue I hold no regret On my growing debt my bank account, blood cell count don’t account for anything I do Why Do I Fall in love and fail Rewrite the tale Of lovers scorned in hell (stop) Why Do I Drink till i’m high Sleep when I’m stoned Cry when I’m alone I have no discipline Where do I begin I always had a well thought out plan lack of concentration some form of mediation a gym subscription that never got much use
