Track Name: It Only Hurts
It only hurts me when I get up
It only hurts me when I cry
It only hurts me when I wake up
It only hurts when you by
It only hurts me when I get down
It only hurts me when I’m sad
It only hurts me when I let it
It only hurts me when I’m mad

This is my message for life
I can barely see us ever having fun
You’re like ecstasy, fill you with me
Can no longer bite my tongue it’s hurting me

It only hurts me when I’m still
Only hurts with time to kill
Only hurts me when you feel bad
And you’ve been feeling pretty ill
It only hurts me when you’re going
And you’ve been gone way too long
It only hurts when I can’t find you
And then I have to hunt you down

I will not let you, sell my soul
Can not allow you to ask for my consent
All along it didn’t matter anyway
I should sell you all the lies you told to me

It only hurts me when I get up
It only hurts me when I cry
It only hurts me when I wake up
It only hurts when you by

It only hurts me when you’re going
And you’ve been gone way too long
It only hurts when I can’t find you
And then I have to hunt you down
Track Name: Another Girl in the Glove
I was just a vessel
for the love you take
the perfect accoutrement, topping on the cake
If the world said so long
I wouldn’t wait
I would only infatuate

And I’m runnin to the gate
And I’m gonna graduate
Oh I’m runnin to the gate
I’m gonna to make you late

And I’m gonna clear the air
Oh I’m gonna clear the air
Oh I’m gonna to clear the air
Oh I’m gonna clear the air up here.

You lost who you were
It wasn’t what you said
Now I’m lying here, junked up in my bed

And I’m gonna to clear the air
Oh I’m mother-fuckin going
to clear the air
Oh I’m mother-fuckin going
to clear the air
Oh I’m mother-fuckin going
To clear the air

I was just a missile, cannon for your love
The perfect pick up line
Another girl in the glove
If the world said so long
I wouldn’t wait
I would only infatuate

And I’m runnin to the gate
And I’m gonna graduate
Oh I’m runnin to the gate
Oh I’m gonna to make you late

Oh I’m gonna clear the air
Oh I’m gonna clear the air
Oh I’m gonna to clear the air
Oh I’m gonna clear the air up here.

Oh I’m gonna clear the air
Oh I’m gonna clear the air
Oh I’m gonna to clear the air
Oh I’m gonna clear the air
Track Name: Heart's in the Ground
Don’t want to hurt you
In a sea of fear
My heart wont let you
Disappear

I won’t let you
See or hear
My heart won’t let you
Disappear

I tried to kiss you
Melt you in my arms
Tried to love you
Keep you free from harm

My hearts in the ground
Buried under a mound
My hearts in the sand
In a foreign land

My hearts in the ground
And I’m way down here
my hearts in the ground
I’m way down here

My hearts in the ground
Buried under a mound
My hearts in the sand
In a foreign land

You were mine, you were mine, you were mine
You were mine, you were mine, you were mine
You were mine, you were mine, you were mine
You were mine, you were mine, you were mine

My hearts in the ground
Buried under a mound
My hearts in the sand
In a foreign land

My hearts in the ground
And I’m way down here
my hearts in the ground
I’m way down here
Track Name: What A Day
The boys they call you fair
Walking after dark
What a day
what a day

Siren in the dark
Beckon with your walk
Back in the day
Back in the day
Moving like you do, shot in the dark

Wrapped up in a halo
The boys are drinking beer
A case a day
A case a day

The boys they call you sharp
Prophets everywhere
What a day
What a day

Kids they line the park
Protestors on the walk
What a day
What a day

The boys are laissez faire,
Trotting through the square
A case a day
A case a day

The boys they call you fair
Simply debonaire
Or so they say
What a day

So they say
What a day
So they say
What a day
So they say
What a day
What a day
What a day
What a day
What a day
What a day
What a day
Track Name: Invisible
I might be invisible
The way you look through me
The things you do to me
I might be invisible
I'm not really here

I might be invisible
Or did I smoke too much weed
You don't seem to notice
Oh you don't see me

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

You might not believe me
When I say I’m right here
Oh those things you do to me
Year after year

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I might be invisible
Or did I smoke too much dope
I don't have nothing
If I had to stop and think

I think you couldn't see me
Or hear me
Or touch me
Or feel me
Or thrill me
Or push me
Or hold me
Cause I'm not really here
Track Name: Freight Train
I hear the freight train wheels
I hear the freight train car
I keep on walkin steady
wondering where you are

I hear the freight train wheels
I hear the freight train car
I keep on walkin steady
hoping to grab you up

It’s brighter later now
It’s brighter later down the road
It’s lighter later now
It’s lighter later now I know

It’s brighter later now
It’s brighter later down the road
It’s lighter later now
It’s lighter later now I know

It’s not the way I see it
It’s not the way I’d like to go
It’s not the way I see it
It’s not the way I wish to die
It’s not the way I see it
It’s not the way I’d like to go
It’s not the way I see it
It’s not the way I wish to

I hear the whistle blowin
Feel the mighty wind
I hear the bells a ringin
I hear the hobos sing
I read your letters to me
Your words are speeding down the track

It’s brighter later now
It’s brighter later down the road
It’s lighter later now
It’s lighter later now I know

It’s brighter later now
It’s brighter later down the road
It’s lighter later now
It’s lighter later now I know


It’s not the way I see it
It’s not the way I’d like to go
It’s not the way I see it
It’s not the way I wish to die
It’s not the way I see it
It’s not the way I’d like to go
It’s not the way I see it
It’s not the way I wish to
Track Name: Bittersweet
Bittersweet, that's how we meet
Here we go again
Trying to pretend
That everything's alright

Lost and low, away we go
Trying to decide
Lying deep inside
That we’re not sad tonight

Comes a day well so they so
When everything must die
Except the earth and sky
Above it all

We can't tell what's join on
We got the feeling something's wrong
We kept it bottled up inside
It tasted
Bittersweet

All choked up, your train arrives
You run down the hall
Your face it says it all
That everything’s alright

Should have known, home is not sweet home
No one is around
My things that can’t be found
This house is bittersweet, sweet, sweet, sweet

Comes a day well so they so
When everything must die
Except the earth and sky
Above it all

We can't tell what's goin on
Got the feeling something's wrong
We kept it bottled up inside
It tasted
Bittersweet, sweet, sweet sweet

One by one
Lessons learned
We've gone our own way
Never thought I'd have
To say goodbye this way

Comes a day well so they so
When everything must die
Except the earth and sky
Above it all

We can't tell what's join on
We got the feeling something's wrong
Kept it bottled up inside
It tasted
Bittersweet, sweet, sweet sweet
Track Name: Our Love's Growin' Thin
I gave my heart up to the sun
Watched it burn for you
Sold my soul to a highway bum
He said he'd send it through

I tossed my hat into the ring
took one to the chin
Had a token of our love
But our love's growin thin

I drank the tonic of your love
My head began to spin
Beat myself up to a pulp
But still I tried to sing

So much for fighting with myself
Battle I can't win
A lightbulb went off in my head
Now it's growin dim
Track Name: Putting Me To Bed
My friends are on the floor
It’s not my style I’ve got a home
It’s neither up it’s neither down
I don’t have time to sing my songs

Collect the pieces of my heart
At first I watched it fall apart
My style is what you read
In all the papers that’s what I said

My edicts written on the wall
And with the moon we make amends
I’m a little light a light I’m a little long
I’m a little wound up on both ends

Why you putting me to bed?
Was it something that I said?
So now you’re putting me to bed
Why you putting me to bed?

The days are short the night is long
I’m not tired just passing time
Are you just doing this for show
Well your performance is sublime

This is truly not my world
I’m better in the dark of night
I’m a little weak I’m a little strong
Just lay me down and I’ll be gone

I’m a little tall I’m a little slim
Sometimes I just don’t fit in
You better call my next of kin
I’m moving out I’m going in

Why you putting me to bed?
Was it something that I said?
So now you’re putting me to bed
Was it something that I said?

So now you’re putting me to bed
So now your ‘re putting me to bed

What was it, was the dinner bad?
Was it because you lost your hair?
Was it your ego talking?
Is it because your just tired of me?
Was it the liquor?
Was it because you couldn’t get your make-up on?

Now your putting me to bed
Track Name: Way Down Here
Don’t want to hurt you
In a sea of Fear
My heart wont let you
Disappear

I won’t let you
See or hear
My heart won’t let you
Disappear

I tried to kiss you
Melt you in my arms
Tried to love you
Keep you free from harm

My hearts in the ground
Buried under a mound
My hearts in the sand
In a foreign land

My hearts in the ground
Buried under a mound
My hearts in the sand
In a foreign land

My hearts in the ground
I’m way down here
My hearts in the ground
I’m way down here
