Track Name: Damned at Home
been waiting such a long long time
for this moment to come
my bones are aching to return home

Jim gets stoned and drinks all day
mind is racing, about what he won't say
some things never leave you

she says
"nobody knows you like I do
every day you try to stay away I still come through
stay with me and we'll never have to leave this place again
sleep in with your dedicated lover and your only friend"
(where does the bottle lead to)

sound of gunfire in the living room
post-traumatic stress on a lazy afternoon
am I depressed or just bored?
desperately lonely but too nervous for a whore

she says
"nobody knows you like I do
every day you try to stay away I still come through
stay with me and we'll never have to leave this place again
sleep in with your dedicated lover and your only friend"
(where does the bottle lead to)

I am armed to the teeth with weakness
I fear it readily shows
but I can't pretend to understand the sense
of cutting out the medicine

battle's over
war is won
did you fight?
or did you run?
Track Name: Gypsy Shoes
when I'm done thinking 'bout what I been thinking 'bout
everything will be thought of
streets that lie beneath your feet
will return to mud
soft lighting in a crowded room
there was two men fighting for a girl named June
if the end is coming can it please come soon
for a man with nothing left to lose?

I know what you're doing here
you ain't gonna change my mind
I'm sick of wasting all my precious time
I don't wanna wait no more
for you
you should let me walk away
I'm sure I'll see you soon
in the meantime
know that I'm thinking of you

another night, another state, another city
I met a man with answers
he said to watch the stars and try to drift away
that the body is a prison, no reason to stay
most people are happy with their eyes closed
I think that things get harder the more that you know

I know what you're doing here
you ain't gonna change my mind
I'm sick of wasting all my precious time
I don't wanna wait no more
for you
you should let me walk away
I'm sure I'll see you soon
in the meantime
know that I'm thinking of you
Track Name: Conditions of Youth
you might be the one for me
I could never let you know for fear that love would grow
I don't like to let people get too close
everybody leaves me in the end

we don't have to stay here
if you don't want to
we can head out for the coast

you never cared for me at all
we have nothing to talk about
I hate your pretty face
the sound your voice makes
why can't you leave my dreams alone?

while I'm young and you're young too
let's get together and do what young folks do
know I'm yours if you want me too
I'd do anything for you

we don't have to stay here
if you don't want to
we can head out for the coast

you never cared for me at all
we have nothing to talk about
I hate your pretty face
the sound your voice makes
why can't you leave my dreams alone?

Track Name: Jeanie
there was still snow on the ground
when I first saw your face
I looked down, avoided your gaze
you smiled at me as you began to say
"I've never seen you around this town,
such a small small place"
I ask myself each fall
were you ever here at all?

Jeanie
why'd you have to go
you know I loved you so
oh Jeanie don't go

Jeanie with the long brown hair
Jeanie with the long brown hair
Jeanie with the long brown hair
left me standing there alone

two star-crossed lovers intertwine
beneath a moonlit sky
constellations dance through the night
the pair gaze at the heavens in silence
a celebration of this crazy world
a young infatuation with his first real girlfriend
I ask myself each fall
were you ever here at all?

Jeanie
why'd you have to go
you know I loved you so
oh Jeanie don't go

Jeanie with the long brown hair
Jeanie with the long brown hair
Jeanie with the long brown hair
left me standing there alone

name or person
which is nearer
person or property
which is dearer
gain or loss
which is drearier

many loves entail great costs
many riches entail heavy losses

name or person
which is nearer
person or property
which is dearer
gain or loss
which is drearier

know contentment and you shall be not disgraced
know satisfaction and you shall not be imperiled
then you will long endure
Track Name: The Lucky A
I'm dying every day
but I still feel the same
my body's wasting away
but I ain't got no pain
you say that I should not feel this way
I'm just taking my life day to day

we are not like you people here
this world was never meant for me
these days all I seem to see
are visions of the man that I can't be
and I think often bout the space we've shared
smiles, cigarettes, and air
but I still have you in my dreams at night
I paint you in a better light

my brain escapes me in times of need
TV screens and magazines reduce me
to states of self-hatred that plague the way I see
this world is a strange strange place to me

we are not like you people here
this world was never meant for me
these days all I seem to see
are visions of the man that I can't be
and I think often bout the space we've shared
smiles, cigarettes, and air
but I still have you in my dreams at night
I paint you in a better light
