Track Name: Wrong Foot
It's gonna take a couple minutes this morning to get it down
Who am I to say that I'm breaking through when I'm burning out?
What you don't know can't be denied
I could love you forever, starting today
It'll never come or it may
Busy in the grimiest shirt, you're getting born
And off on the wrong foot

I break apart on the pulse of pop culture every couple days
Still I meant most my replies
Inevitable growing pains we keep going through
Me in front of me in front of you
Much like all of us buy some time
Will it feel the same way after the end of it all
To've been time just passing again?
Track Name: New Humor
On the back porch waiting for your telephone to ring
All you keep talking about, Star Wars and shows you'd gone to see
Everything falling off the table, including me
We could wise up and just take it for the tie
But I'd buy into anything you wanna say if you wanna stay the night
I don't mind, and I'll let you drive in the morning
When I take you out for that cup of coffee you're gonna find
I've got a new humor
I've got a new sense of what's funny enough for me to be laughing

And you tie up your hair in dreadlocks now in the cemetery by the movie park
Lying on the hood of my car you said it never took much to get too high
Now I've come to find that you weren't lying

You're way past the finish line in my mind
Peak at my soul and you can't decide if I told you anything
Or just a bucket of lies

A new humor when I open up
Baby, open up
When I open up it's hilarious
A new humor like when I opened up and helped her give up
Track Name: Alright
Baby's first breath was a broken doll
Gasoline and a Sara Con
Now she's counting down all my ceiling stars
She wants to take them down, but I duped her with a coffee

She's so special - She's all mine - So special

Baby's first breath was a broken doll
Gasoline and a tarot card
Now she's coming back, and she's all in black
Make the cover run, and she starts to attack it

She's so special - So are you - Yeah, her too
Track Name: To Get Into Your Heart
I know how to get into your heart
I tried to sneak inside like I'm Napoleon Bonaparte
But if I keep up with all this time away it won't be hard
To get into your heart

Your freckled face
The stupid boys swoon
The smell of your place reminds me of my back room

The relics of what could've been remain behind you

On the way
Feeling it fade
I'd give it away to get into your heart
Track Name: The Other Side
Standing in the rain in cuffs by the police car
And I told the truth about the DOB embossed
A credit card and a broken light
Nothing else to do with the night

And now I'm in the grass, and it's starting to wear off

I begin the engage in the kitchen of the restaurant
The girl from backside blew in and started to talk to me
I told her twice, I was real polite
Color'd returned to both of my eyes, and now I feel less bored

On the other side
I'm on the other side, with no one to have me trapped
Nothing has me trapped
Track Name: Shame
She wakes me up on the phone
Takes me to lunch and to the show
I saw her going down on my friend again

She wakes me up on the floor
Takes me out, shoots me off to all her petty friends
I don't know

I saw her going down in the bathroom of that bar
I almost called her name, but I just fumbled down the boulevard
And it's a shame
Track Name: Sad Woman Or Both
The strains of suburban life have got their grips on you and me and everyone
Don't see eye to eye with any great decider inside everyone and me and you
And here you come
Now I'm numb from sad woman syndrome
Your sad woman syndrome

In some ways I am always thinking on Babylon, withdrawn
Conquering the demon in my feeling
We still have the time to throw the pieces down
Sell the attitude and get out of town

It might be like Gallagher said
Maybe you're the one who's gonna save me
Or maybe the opposite
Or both
Track Name: In The Crowd
What's with the long face my friend?
Ain't it good enough just being around again
In the sun, comatose, and wearing pants
With the big divide buried below
Let you peck on my soul til you chicken out
The paradigm, patience, and doubt

Come on feel me now...
Ignite the bed of fire I was sleeping on
With irrelevance to my TV set

Would you want if you were gonna know?
So coiled up you never come across
You take the doubt, and I take the fall now
Standing in the crowd
Track Name: Quick Desire
The sun comes out
Now you're out in the sun
Not around anyone

You may wait
Too long to find too much time
Still can be a friend of mine

What's to come
What decides
The far off feeling in quick desire?
Track Name: Hanger
She said I'm Sara down the hall
I felt embarrassed when she said I'm Sara
I was found checking out my bag
In the airport hanger, she said I'm Sara

Made an impression, I'll cut my hair
Made my confession, I declare

She said I'm Sara
