Track Name: I've Been Around
What’s the worst that could happen?

I said to my friends as I pack up my old truck and I begin to leave again

I’ll drive til I find comfort, some place that’s warm all year

And if you would care to join me I’ve got music for your ears

I don’t think that we’ll be rich but I know we won’t be bored

And if the ocean eats the beaches we’ll wash up on the shore

We’ll build a boat and float around, singing Rocky Raccoon

And if the piano doesn’t please you I’ll write you something new



But how would it go?

How would it go?



I’ve been around long enough to know

That if you stay in one place you’ll never grow

Don’t turn to me when you’re sorry

That your life has passed you by

Oh no, I tried



What’s the worst that could happen?

I said with a grin as I turn my back on income for a life I want to live

And if I die too early because I couldn’t pay to pray

At least I lived for something and my heart has always stayed

Full of love and best intentions for my closest friends

It was them who really knew me and through them I’ll live again

So when I’m gone please sing our songs even if they’re not

As good as we remembered them when we were all so young



If that’s how it goes well then that’s who it goes

Right?



I’ve been around long enough to know

That if you stay in one place you’ll never grow

Don’t turn to me when you’re sorry

That your life has passed you by

Oh no, I tried
Track Name: Stay Young, Stay Lost
Remember when we used to be invincible, a tuned machine?

Nothing stopped our train of though because we stayed young & we stayed lost

So let’s make a promise now when we meet the wolf we won’t back down

Even if he storms the house we’ll make a stand, we won’t back down

Hell no



Now we’re our only friends

It’s up to us how this all ends

Yeah we’re our only friends



So let’s stay young and lost

We’ll fight them off no matter what the cost is

Let’s stay young and lost



Looking down a wishing well I lost a buck, I saw myself

I prayed hard to what’s above to bring me back to what I love

We only get so much time, so when it’s done just say goodnight

Anyone can choose to die, not everyone lives their life



Now we’re our only friends

It’s up to us how this all ends

Yeah we’re our only friends



So let’s stay young and lost

We’ll fight them off no matter what the cost is

Let’s stay young and lost
Track Name: The Classic
You grab the rope and I’ll go tie the noose

I’ll hang in your tree all afternoon

You can bring me drinks and things and I’ll make you smile

If I can’t though I bet I can you can lay with me a while



Oh if this isn’t love

Oh then I don’t know what it was



You pass the note and I’ll go grab the loot

And we’ll run from the cops all afternoon

You can bring me news of things and I’ll keep keeping score

Marry me won’t you marry me?

Oh darling I completely adore you



Oh if this isn’t love

Oh then I don’t know what it was
Track Name: Cheer Up, Rich
2010 was hard on me

But I finally found some room to breathe

I had to fight my way out of it

I had to rearrange everything

Oh but heartbreak is nothing new

It’s only unique when it happens to you

And you’re certain that the world has stopped

But I assure you that it never does



Go on, go on

Forget that girl she is gone

Go on, go on

And you will find another one



21’s been hard on you

I know you think it is ending too soon

But you must take whatever you can

And realize it’ll happen again

Oh because loneliness is nothing new

No it will come and it will pass your whole life through

And when you’re certain that the world has stopped

Just remember that it never does



Go on, go on

Forget that girl she is gone

Go on, go on

And you will find another one
Track Name: All My Life
I’ve been searching for you all my life

Well now I found you and I’m out of time

I’m afraid to close my eyes tonight

Because in the morning we must say goodbye

Oh I hate goodbyes

But this is the life I chose I know,

So baby goodbye



I was hoping we could spend the week

But you had plans and I had planned to leave

I tell you 90 days ain’t that long

Then you point out I traded you for songs

I hate the sound of my voice when I am wrong

But baby c’mon



I don’t want to leave you

I’m starting to get used to you

Now I need you

Yeah I need you



Time never is on our side

I have chased you all my life

Why can’t I just keep this one?

Why can’t I just get what I want?

Baby c’mon



We were laying on our backs when I

Told you I’d make you my wife

You started laughing then you said “I do”

But in the morning blamed it all on the booze

Oh I hate the sound of your voice when it’s not true

Baby what should I do?



I don’t want to leave you

I’m starting to get used to you

Now I need you

Yeah I need you



Time never is on our side

I have chased you all my life

Why can’t I just keep this one?

Why can’t I just get what I want?

Baby c’mon
Track Name: Everything I Love (Is Killing Me)
Everything I love is slowly killing me

The girls, the drinks, the drugs, the way that I scream

My throat is raw and my heart can’t take anymore



I know you say you’re sorry but it seems that you’re not

You said some shitty things and now my baby you’ve caught me on the chin

My head is still spinning



My heart is anchored to you

So this ship won’t float

And I go down with you

These waves will eat my face

With my final breath I curse your name



Everything I love is slowly killing me

These labels love my band but they don’t love me

They are scared of what I might say as they should be



I’ve done my time and paid my dues, it’s time to get paid

I’m black and blue and beaten down, I’m so full of rage

But I love the taste and I need it everyday



My heart is anchored to you

So this ship won’t float

And I go down with you

These waves will eat my face

With my final breath I curse your name
Track Name: The Fight
You asked me for the time I said my girl I have all night

I told you how I used to smoke two packs but now I don’t

You said that’s great I’m really proud of you

But do you have a light?

I said I do



Between the bars and broken hearts our conversation never starved

We were fully functioning alcoholics conquering

Our present selves and past defeats

Familiar with catastrophe all too well



Once there was no hope

Girls will come & go

Some friends will do the same

But the ones you truly need are the ones that always stay



Please let me remind you

I am beside you

Don’t give up the fight

We go down together

I’m down for whatever

Don’t give up the fight



I asked you how you felt about traveling around with me

You said you’d quit your job and that your mom could take you dog

I said I don’t just how we’ll eat

But I will always sing to you my sweet



So we packed our bags and then we drove and drove and drove

Until we ran out of road and the air smelled of ocean breeze

You’ll never look as beautiful to anyone

As you do now to me



Once there was no hope

Girls will come & go

Some friends will do the same

But the ones you truly need are the ones that always stay



Please let me remind you

I am beside you

Don’t give up the fight

We go down together

I’m down for whatever

Don’t give up the fight



I woke up one morning and learned that she had boarded an airplane back to Tennessee

I sat there alone and threw stones into the ocean

I watched each one sink just like me

I called my best friend I said it happened to me again

I loved her well but she just had to leave

I said can you come get me man? I think I’m going crazy

Before I could even say please

He said



Girls will come & go

Some friends will do the same

But the ones you truly need are the ones that always stay



Please let me remind you

I am beside you

Don’t give up the fight

We go down together

I’m down for whatever

Don’t give up the fight
Track Name: For Pittsburgh, With Love & Squalor (Let's Go Out)
Let’s go out, let’s go out

I want to see the town

I want to make some new friends

I want to see what’s happening

Let’s get down, we’re only here one night

Let’s find some women

Let’s pick a fight

Let’s go down swinging

Let’s fall in love

Let’s make damn sure they remember us



We want to go out so don’t you dare stand in our way

We are old enough to know better but you don’t have a say



I love this town, I love this town

I don’t want to go

I want to see my old friends

I wonder what I’m missing

Well we’re here tonight so let’s get loose

You call your dealer & I’ll supply the booze

We’ll race the morning

Embrace the night

And then tomorrow

We’ll come back to life



We want to go out so don’t you dare stand in our way

We are old enough to know better but you don’t have a say
Track Name: Three Records Deep
Hello, how are you?

Tell me how have you been

I think it’s Wednesday

Yeah it’s Wednesday or something

Actually it doesn’t matter at all

See, the reason I called

Is I wanted to say

So many things I won’t say to your face

You’re a thousand miles away

Tell Texas to keep her

I ain’t coming back

I’ve been up and down

And where I’ve been I’m not the same person now

Now I’m three records deep

I’m kicking a dead horse I though was asleep



Hello, how the hell are you?

Tell me how long has it been?

It must be my birthday

Is it my birthday or something?

You know what, actually it doesn’t matter at all

The reason I called

Is I’ve go so much to say

And each of these things I can’t say to your face

Because you’re a thousand miles away

Tell New York to keep her

I ain’t coming back

I’ve been up and down

And who I am

Shit I’m not the same person now

Now I’m three records deep

Kicking a dead horse I thought was asleep
Track Name: Free At Last
She’s my baby oh she’s my girl

She’s the finest woman in the whole wide world

But my baby ain’t been so sweet to me

Now she is a ghost and I am free

I am free



So now I’m on the run, I’m on the go

I left my family and I left my home

I told my father to go and hide my gun

I’ll come back for it when my work is done

For now I am gone



It’s two years later and they’re hunting for me

They caught up with me down in New Orleans

They took three shots and the first two missed

I only took one shot but I caught him in the chest

He is dead

Yeah we’re both dead

Now I’m free

I’m free at last
Track Name: Good Lord!
Go on leave

No one’s stopping you, please

I don’t want no trouble

It looks like I just found some

Wednesday night, we went out for one drink

But it turned into this whole thing

Good lord I’m in trouble



You don’t need

To prove yourself to me

I’ll take your word

That you’re tough



You know me

I can’t say no to free things

I tried it once and I loved it

Good lord I’m an addict

You and me

We set this path onto nothing

What the hell were we thinking?

You know we was drinking! (at 308)



We don’t need

To prove a single thing

We are exactly

Where we want to be

Yeah we are exactly

Where we want to be
Track Name: The Martyr & The Monster
If I’m happy now

Then what would I write about?

I’ve been alone for a long while

And I’ve gotten old and weird



I’m so set in my own ways

And you’re all set in yours

That’s to be expected but there is no cure

They say love is certain but I’m not so sure



I say I want love and affection

I act like it’s something owed to me

Well I think I just needed some attention

You were only trying to know me



How long will it take before I wake up?

There’s something good in front of me

I’d better fuck it up

Oh man why do I do all the things I’ve always done

It never works out well for me but hey I’m having fun

Hey I’m having fun



If you leave right now

Then I’ll have plenty to write about

I’ll exaggerate and stretch every story yes I’ll let

My imagination run wild and free



In one song you’ll be the martyr

In the next one you’ll be a monster

And you won’t get a say when I’m one light year away

I’ve got no intention of returning to your town



I say I want love and affection

I act like it’s something owed to me

Well I think I just needed some attention

You were only trying to love me



How long will it take before I wake up?

There’s something good in front of me

I’d better fuck it up

Oh man why do I do all the things I’ve always done?

It never works out well for me but hey I’m having fun

Hey I’m having fun

Hey I’m having fun
Track Name: Love & Death
I was thinking all about my life

I began obsessing how I’ll die

How will I go?

Fast or slow

Will I be surrounded by everyone I’ve known?

I hope so



My grandma died right in her husband’s arms

The night she passed she stole my grandpa’s heart

I don’t want to scare you

But that’s what I want

I want to love somebody so well

That when I die they can’t go on

Are you in or out?
Track Name: Show It To Me
Boy learn to be a man, learn to be a man

If you want love

Girl don’t give it all away

Save some for yourself

What would your father say?



Lord have mercy on me

You know that I’m weak

And I don’t believe

I just want love

Show it to me

If I cannot have her

Then I don’t want a thing



Love

Show it to me

Love

Show it to me



One day you’ll figure it out

No you never had her

She just kept you around

But she made you a man

Yeah she toughened you up

I know right now it hurts like hell

But boy that’s love



Love

Show it to me

Love

Show it to me
Track Name: Tell Me I'm Wrong
I called you to tell you I'm doing just fine
Although that may come to you as a surprise
I called you to tell you I'm sorry it's been two weeks
I tell you I've been busy as I lie through my teeth
You see mom I've just been stripped from my pace
All of my friends are scattered all over the place
So I called you to tell you I hate how I hurt
What's worse is I know you'll just fill me with worth

You always said need not for nothing
You always told me that what I've got it works
Well I need some new advice 'cuz I'm just barely scraping by

What if I'm wrong
Tell me I'm not
What if I cashed in all of my good luck
Too soon and now I have run out
Tell me I'm wrong

I called you to tell you I'm living the dream
You ask how I've been eating as I pour myself a drink
You say you can hear that quiver in my voice
The same quiver you once knew when I was just a young boy
If we're being honest then I'll tell it like it is
I'm so sick of trying but I don’t know how to quit
Nashville’s my home & I need her in my lungs
But she ain't opened up & I've spilled out my guts

You always said need not for nothing
You’ve always told me that what I've got is gold
Well I need some new advice 'cuz I'm just barely scraping by

What if I'm wrong
Tell me I'm not
What if I cashed in all of my good luck
Too soon and now I have run out
Tell me I'm wrong

Mom I'm a drifter I just thought you should know
And sometimes this river is angry and cold
But I wouldn't trade it for a fence and a door
I just wish I was better at climbing aboard
So if it looks like I'm drowning well I probably am
But don't cry and don't try to throw me a hand
’Cuz I'd rather die here and die like a man
And maybe that's wrong but it's all that I have



You always said need not for nothing
You’ve always said that with what I’ve go I’m on fire
Well I need some new advice 'cuz I'm put out, my arms are tired

What if I'm wrong
Tell me I'm not
What if I cashed in all of my good luck
Too soon and now I have run out
Tell me I'm wrong
