Track Name: Bobby D
Baby you don't love me, and thats a fact
I came around last autumn and found you, weren't down with that
I tried to tell you something, that could break the ice
but soon found out there's no way to consolidate sides

With your frown
In this town
why the hell do i feel like you're forcing me to get around.

Oh well now lately, creepin up on my spine
is all of these places and all of these people,waisting all of my time
now you gettin nasty, despite me trying my best
maybe I should just throw up my hands and, get this off my chest

When your down
in this town
why the hell do i feel like you're forcing me to get around.
yeah
in this town
why the hell do i feel like you're forcing me to get around.

You never took me to Calimar
ignoring the orange groves in the car
on the open sea don't you ever trust me
we'll get to the end and we'll never be friends like you wanted to be
just between you and me
on the open sea don't you ever trust me
we'll get to the end and we'll never be friends like you wanted to be
just between you and me

Yeahyeahyeah

In this town
With that frown
Why the hell do i feel like your forcing me to oh bow down
Track Name: Stacks
Stood still atop the mountain
wet brow'd, for seven days
I hoped that, I was secure
turns out we're all just a bad charade

Stood still, atop the steeple
I tried hard not to judge all the people
I came down with only attitude
I tried hard but then found it's always been rude

Well, didn't think that you'd ever really come back
didn't think well very much of that
well, didn't think that you'd ever really come back
didn't think oh, well very much of that


Stood still atop the building
I breathed hard its been seven days
I move close but than I hesitate
It's only worth it if theres no one else in my way

Didn't think that you'd ever really come back
didn't think oh very much of that
didn't think that you'd ever really come back
didn't really think, very much of that
Track Name: Speed
Take a stab at me I think I'm ready to go
haven't spoken to your boyfriend in a, month or so
and standing here in the middle of this party of people neither of us know
I wish I hugged you, or told you

To go, to go with the greatest of the speeds
to the grandest of the heights to the people all in need
oh I know I know it really isn't fair
that powerful people are powerless to care
and when you find, that place
oh be sure to get that look upon your face

Take a swing at me I think I'm reading to fight
It's been a while but I'm pretty damn sure it's like riding a bike and
both of us are a couple of fools on this little old island in the middle of a pool and I hope you change your mind, this time

To run with the greatest of the speeds
to the grandest of the heights to the people all in need
oh I know I know it really isn't fair
that powerful people are powerless to care
and when you find, that place
oh be sure to get that look upon your face
to run to run with the greatest of the speeds
to the grandest of the heights to the people all in need
oh I know I know it really isn't fair
that powerful people are powerless to care
and when you find, that place
oh be sure to get that look upon your face
Track Name: Always Clueless (for the kids)
I wrote this song so you could hear my voice
I'm not there now but felt I had no choice
and I don't need anybody telling me I'm useless
and I don't need anybody consoling my children

Cause I love you more than anything
and I adored you before that life you breath'n
and anytime you feel like oh you are useless
oh just recall your daddy was always clueless
oh always clueless
always clueless

Check for the facts before you take a burn
make sure relax before you move a turn
and anytime you feel like oh you are useless
oh just recall your daddy was always clueless

Cause i love you more than anything
and i adored you before that life you breath'n
and anytime you feel like you are useless
just recall your daddy was always clueless
oh always clueless
always clueless
always clueless
always clueless
Track Name: Firestarter
Don't you say sorry, again well for the millionth time
oh you know what I mean oh I've got no one to blame
except maybe myself and we both know how I'd love that well

Don't you let me oh don't you let me
don't you let me oh don't you let me
down, on my knees
oh girl the hell of it to ya how
oh am I ever gonna speak with you know
in a cloud of smoke and no fire starter to be found
I guess we'll go our own ways now

Don't you shrug me off again, well for the thousandth time
oh I know what you mean oh you've got no one to blame
except maybe yourself and we both know how you'd love that

Don't you let me oh don't you let me
don't you let me oh don't you let me
down, on my knees
oh girl the hell of it to ya how
oh am I ever gonna speak with you know
in a cloud of smoke and no fire starter to be found
I guess we'll go our own ways now

Oh down, on my knees
oh girl the hell of it to ya how
oh am I ever gonna speak with you know
in a cloud of smoke and no fire starter to be found
I guess we'll go our own ways now
own ways know
Track Name: Charm
Come around here oh every Saturday
telling me that the girls ya they don't feel safe, no way
your actin like every other skirt on this ramp
and telling me that I'm nothing but some tramp, in a van

Ya tell me that I should look down at both boots
and pick myself back up and show you my blues, well I'm confused
take back every word that you ever said
tell me that I'll be better off when I'm dead, when I'm dead

take me back take me back take me back take me back take me back take me back oh I'm wishing you could
take me back take me back take me back take me back take me back take me back oh I'm wishing you would
take me back take me back take me back take me back take me back take me back oh naw naw naw
take me back take me back take me back take me back take me back take me back oh I'm wishing you could

Ya come around here every Saturday
spouting things are never gonna be the same, well that's lame
you said never count your eggs before they hatch
funny coming from someone who bet on a fixed match, well i bet you're a catch

Oh hey now, oh hey now
watch out
Track Name: Laika (feat. Tomber Lever)
Keep your name I don't wanna share my fame
oh you're lame I don't trust you called me sane
oh holding, my hands, my cane, my heart
you think that I'm tame, are you crazed, I put your love in my vein

Out of all the tapes I have took the time to rewind
there's damaged film with black lines
with eyes like this and a heart of shit
I'm not surprised that I learned how to miss it

Don't you recall this most recent fall behind that bar
I kissed you hard against your car
oh you can't out last that lasso around your head oh your poor neck
oh kiss me hard before we before we both are dead

You don't stand a chance
you don't stand a chance
you don't stand a chance
you don't stand a chance

For the ones who decided to quit me
I've never seen cold turkey done so successfully
I said successfully, not potentially
I said successfully
