Track Name: Ten Pills
10s and 5s barely keep me alive...yeah it's true.
I'd walk the line, but I can't find the time cause of you.

Don't know what to do...

One to eat. One to sleep.
One to think, one to speak,
One to just keeps me awake.
One for aches. One for Pains.
One adjusts, one to fuck,
and the last ones just keeping me sane.

I live a life filled with bottles and trials, thought you knew?
Can't get away from the pain anyway, so I use.
I fell in love with the prescription drugs.
I tried it once and I just couldn’t get enough.
I saw you looking in the medicine cabinet too...
Yeah it's true!
I saw you looking too... (x2)

One to eat. One to sleep.
One to think, one to speak,
One to just keeps me awake.
One for aches. One for Pains.
One adjusts, one to fuck,
and the last ones just keeping me sane.

9 to 5 it's just keeping me a live yeah it true, true so true.
I walk a line and they call it a crime...I'm a fool, yeah such a fool..
Cuz of you... (x4)

One to eat. One to sleep.
One to think, one to speak,
One to just keeps me awake.
One for aches. One for Pains.
One adjusts, one to fuck...
And the last one is key...
One to eat, eat, sleep, sleep...
And the last one is key...
One for aches, aches, pains, pains...
And the last is keeping me...
The last one is keeping me sane.

I fell in love with the prescription drugs...
I tried it once and I just couldn’t get enough!
I saw you looking in the medicine cabinet too...
Yeah let's use... (x4)

(chorus repeat)
Track Name: What A Ride
Everyone was saying that everyone was waiting
on the far side of the park.
So baby can you take me? I know it's been a long day...
but before it gets too dark

I wanna have us a good time.
We might wait in some long lines,
But that would be just fine.

The rotor's got me spinning, let's buy another ticket
I'll ride with you again.
We're gonna eat some popcorn and get a little sunburn.
I hope this day will never end.

We're gonna have us a good time.
We might wait in some long lines,
But that would be just fine.

What a ride!
Track Name: In This Town
Everyone living in this town...
Wasting time while above ground...
Carry on when the sun goes down, in this town.
Looking left while we live to the right...
Hanging tough staying out all night...
Half the fools wanna get in a fight in this town.

Everyone says they got in made in this town.
Everyone says it's cool in the shade round here.
Everyone's hanging out in the south.
Everyone's got their foot in their mouth.
Everyone's doing time, living in this town.

Everyone seems to think they're right...
When everyone else loses sight.
Did you notice all the petty minds in this town?
When the petty minds go out on the town...
At first they're up then they're so far down.
Everyone wants to wear the crown in this town.
Track Name: Long Run
I wanna take the time to work it out.
It's been a long rocky road & I know you have your doubts.
We had a blast on the town last Friday night,
But by Sunday afternoon she was looking at other guys,

I'm in for the long run...
But it sounded like you needed some time
on the telephone.
I'm in for the long run...
But if you can't make up your mind,
then baby I'll be long gone.

She was pretty good looking on the outside,
But she was playing me the fool & lying all the while,
We'll swing by your house and we'll drop off your shit.
Just take my number out your phone cause I don't wanna talk about it.

(chorus x2)

Since you can’t make up your mind, baby I'm gone
Track Name: Your Last Day
Are you looking for something that makes you feel better?
Not just fair weather...
Or just an escape.

I'm started to find that it's not on the outside,
And it's not just a short ride...
If you want it to stay.

But I don’t mind if we stay here forever,
And we change it together...
What's to lose anyway?

I know it's hard and it's been such a long time
& I don’t have the strength
But can you tell me how long will the sun shine?
On your last day?

Here's a secret, you think you can keep it?
Do you think you can sleep with it?
Do you think that it’s safe?

I never thought twice about making you happy.
It was never distracting.
No it came naturally.

But I don't mind if it gets a bit lonely
In the cold of the morning.
I'll just sleep it away.

(chorus x 2)
Track Name: Honest Smile
It's so wild, it's so wild
I got everything but an honest smile
And she's taken, she's taking that from me
[repeat (x2)]

Now you see me, Now you don't.
You took a chance and now you're losing your hope...
Karma's taking, it's taking back times three

Can I ask a question?
Did you even care?
You seem to have no problem walking away.
Now I'm breaking, breaking at the seems.

It's a lie. It's a lie.
She took everything with a blood red smile
Now she's waiting, hating therapy.

It's a lie, it's a lie...
She has everything in her blood shot eyes,
And she's nesting, living in her cave.

chorus repeat

It's so wild, it's so wild
I got everything but an honest smile
And she's taken, she's taking that from me
[repeat (x2)]
Track Name: Wait A Minute
Gotta wonder what it be like if I never saw you again...
& maybe this will be the last time, maybe this is the end.
Gonna put it on the table yeah I want no regrets,
But I got a feeling in my stomach this ain't over yet.

Wait a minute - Wait a minute - Wait a minute

You always kept my lack of patience in balance and check.
Watching the calendar pass by can be hard to accept.
I don't recall how long it's been, can you remember?
I know it hasn't felt the same since last December.

Wait a minute - Wait a minute - Wait a minute
Track Name: Cast A Stone
I'll be the one to take you home,
Cause I doubt that you're going home alone.
I'll bite my tongue try not to stare,
But I know you like it, so I might as well.

And I'd like to carry you home.
Where everyone ones going...
But you won't stop knowing.

I want you - I want you
I want you to know, I'll be the first to cast a stone.

I'll cast a stone and walk away.
I'll play the game, I know you like the chase.
I'll let the chips fall where they may.
It's not divine, it's a fall from grace.
Track Name: Light The Match
See 'em coming
to the center of town.
Everybody watchin there...
But there's no one around.
You see the street lights?
It's dim & dark.
The fire's hungry there.
Its waiting, for that spark.

Live wire, when you coming around?
Live wire, let me light up your town.

It comes...
Between the sinking ships.
Burning down the world around,
With no evidence.
Light a match for the feeling.
Add some fuel to the fire.
Burn.. Burn.. you got me...
Yeah! Yeah! It's alive!
You got me looking... (x2)

Live wire, when you coming around?
Live wire, let me light up your town...
Live wire, where you livin?
when you coming around?
Live wire now I see you...
Let me light up your town!

Fire's dying...
Yeah it's growing cold.
And I'm left with nothing...
I'm still wanting.
And the world's gonna pay for it...
While I light another spark.
It's mine for the taking...
Yeah, You got me...
You got me looking!
You got me looking!
Track Name: Jersey Nights
Everyone was sayin
That the music wasn't right,
But we'll take a chance and go out tonight.
It takes a special dedication...
It takes a kind of insight...
To find the music for sacred night.
And he got it right
On those Jersey nights.

And I know that we can't live forever,
But nothings gonna stop us from trying.
And he knew that that the music was sacred.
Can you remember those Jersey nights?
Jersey nights, alright...
I hope you know how you changed my life.

Not a fan of goodbyes,
So until next time...
Had the nights of our lives
see you again on a jersey nights,
jersey nights, alright.
I hope you know how you changed my life
with your Jersey nights.
with your Jersey nights!

(chorus repeat)

And it was sad when you left us...
Cause you touched so many lives.
But you gave us those Jersey nights,
when everything felt right...
I miss those Jersey nights!

And I know that we can't live forever...
But nothings gonna stop us from trying.
And he knew that that the music was sacred...
Gonna live forever on a Jersey night,
Jersey night, alright!
I hope you know how you changed my life.
