My Auto 03:00
An autobiography, written in my favor Has been deleted from the days of yore Instead they have shed light upon my downfalls Now I need shades everywhere I go I am restless; sleep has become a dream Noise and distortion are pulsing in my brain Creating a feedback that helps me redeem The peace and tranquility that keeps me ingrained

Skeleton Key 06:19
She said, "When I was little the world it seemed so big." He said, "When you were little, I was little too." She laughed, "You're such a tease, are you hitting on me?" He cried, "Bartender please, I need another drink." Each day That I feel older I wish that I could sleep a little longer Either way I get cold shoulders I wish that I could sleep Everyone relaxing in their private compartments Looking out the window from a stable environment The silent watchman makes his rounds and rings a silver bell I've got so many keys but none that unlock this cell Phone rings in the next apartment People laugh and talk for hours Radio sings songs of commitment Girls and sex and fast cars A strong wind will blow away this slumber I try to make it stay Sunshine, open up the window Breathe in and fly away Each day That I feel older I wish that I could sleep a little longer Either way I get cold shoulders I wish that I could sleep What'd you say? Oh nothing Just talking to my self and mumblin'

Steps 06:18
With the back of my hand on your cheek let me speak oh fair maiden. If a gallant young man took your hand while I slept well I'd never sleep again, I said. And I haven't slept since then. You know my name, you stole my girl, but I love you just the same. Well who cares, so I pushed myself back down the stairs. And although, I hit my head on the stairs below I know, I will climb back up again. By the bye. I'm going to need a long time, long enough to hang my self. Stretch it out unwind. Do whatever helps. Mark it in your daily planner, in your diary before you go to bed, that long ago when you were older, you knew my name, you stole my girl, but I love you just the same. But I love you just the same. By the bye. For crying out loud I'm loosing faces. I'm cruising for a bruising and I'm loosing faces. I've got a taste for blood on my lips, stench in my nostrils, and you. But you said who cares. So I pushed myself back down the stairs. And although, I hit my head on the stairs below I know, I will climb back up again. By the bye. Like the carpetbagger in my bed, while I'm still on the linoleum floor. I told him I was getting off at the next stop, but he didn't move so I had to stay on till we made it downtown made a loop and turned around. So I said fellow, you know my name, you stole my girl, but I love you just the same. He said who cares. So I pushed myself back down the stairs. And although, I hit my head on the stairs below I know, I will climb back up again. But I'm going to need a long time, long enough to hang my self. Stretch it out unwind. What ever makes you happy. By the bye.

Dreamboat 06:26
Do not provoke me I'm very unstable When people are drinking They never think twice You bitch there I said it Now are you satisfied Bitch there I go again I could never lie To you From her apartment I ran like a panty hose Down the stairs through the hall out the door to the road I skid to the ground as the garbage truck drove away Along with my confidence she trashed yesterday Listen up you boys Be on your best behavior Your dreamboat is here And I wouldn't exchange her for Another Just in case you're wondering whom I'm speaking of She lives in side your phone machine and sleeps in your bed And when you least expect it she grabs your hand She beats your beating heart and slaps you upside your head Listen up you boys Be on your best behavior Your dreamboat is here And I wouldn't exchange her for Another I call her once a month just to make sure she's okay We go out and have some fun then call it a day If I try to call her more than once I never get my say So that is why I am giving up and giving her away Listen up you boys Be on your best behavior Your dreamboat is here And I wouldn't exchange her for Another

The label on my beer said free prize inside So I put it in my mouth and I sucked the bottle dry I was happy and content but when I looked in It said "Sorry not a winner, please try again." I grabbed another beer and yelled double or nothing Happy and content I started to sing About my first love when I kissed her She tasted just like whiskey There's something I'm forgetting Well maybe she wasn't with me If I didn't happen to have a hole in my throat I probably wouldn't drink so much Later when we're married we'll laugh about this And probably be more drunk I scratched out your number on the boys washroom stall So that no on could call you for free Someday you'll have to tell your boyfriend about us Please, just leave out the part about me Sucking face with a shot glass is better than you anyway I just called to tell you how I'm doing Sorry not a winner please try again Happy and content, the world starts to spin If I didn't happen to have a hole in my throat I probably wouldn't drink so much Later when we're married we'll laugh about this And probably be more drunk

Roll On 01:14
The heart defined by poets and songwriters As of late has been distorted True love doesn't exist anymore And maybe it never did By metaphors we can ignore true feelings The truth escapes so slow If love were like a simile I'd probably never know Because when the closing credits roll The lead role is still alone

Cowboy 04:17
Lets go out to the country Let go and give me your hand Take me away from the city To live off the fat of the land Away to a land called Wisconsin As if all you people did care So long it's been good to know you Soon I will breathe in fresh air This is a perfect new nest home A plot fit for promising growth For cows pigs chickens and horses Barley wheat corn hay and oat Away from the bright lights and bustle I've never seen stars shine so bright I can't wait to be a part of nature Beautiful peaceful and quiet I wake up at four in the morning I hope I get used to it soon I drink all the time because my back hurts Under the light of the moon I pictured me riding a tractor And you in the garden for hours Finally being self sufficient And children to milk all the cows Lets go back to the city Away from this farm and its weeds To stores that contain all necessities And money is all that we need

Long Ago 03:14
Well the clouds were bridesmates and the North Star was the best man At the marriage of the sun and moon Seven days later the earth was conceived When the dish ran away with the spoon Sadly it ended in divorce Because the sun got a little too hot When they made a settlement for the earth The sun cast the shorter lot The moon lost its shine when it started to drink As the sun moved its distance away With a longing for visitation rights Lasting longer than half a day

Buy Me 03:03
Good byes are cheep and sold to me Because they are all that I can afford More or less I sleep in a cold dream On a bed of lost reward It has been an eternity with no advance I'll see you sometime after work For another miss opportunity to dance With the duchess of New York We could talk about apartments work CTA Movies books or future plans With my immature comments on lesbians gays And music you should hear this new band The phone machine that I hate will tell me your gone But the ID will leave you a clue Or I'll talk to your roommate for 30 seconds long I speak with her more than I do with you There's nothing for you to proof read I've nothing left to say I've already told you too much For now I'll just proceed to practice everyday And maybe Wendy will shut up It is still hard to love I don't know why Maybe I'll change when someone new Is sent from above or falls from the sky I won't forget to introduce her to you

Remembrance 03:01
Forgive and remember That I am the great pretender And I won't be back to rescue you From coffee, vodka, Mountain Dew Joe Camel and the Marlboro Man Have eloped from TV land They're making whoopee inside your lung But don't be sad, you're not the only pun There's more to come
