Track Name: Keep Us Separated
I've been living with your shit
For years and years don't you forget
Now you're another year older, but nothing has changed
Except the way you talk and the way you behave

The words you say mean nothing to me
What the hell is "peace" and "groovy"?
What the hell?
Why can't you talk to me no more?
None of this makes any sense,
Your intellect, my ignorance
Keeps us separated til the end

Now all your friends look weird to me
I don't see how you don't agree
We got gangsters, hippies, cowboys, and punks
You just don't understand
See, things were different back then

Blah blah blah I do what the fuck I want blah blah do what the fuck I want
Blah blah blah I do what the fuck I want blah blah do what the fuck I want
Blah blah blah I do what the fuck I want blah blah do what the fuck I want
Blah blah blah I do what the fuck I want blah blah do what the fuck I want

Blah blah blah blah
Track Name: Tell Me What I Did Wrong
You walked through the door
And you looked at me
You did not make a sound
You told me you were going out
And then you turned around

You never tell me what I did
tell me what I did
tell me what I did wrong

We're never making love like we used to do
Now all I do is cry
You sit there and you laugh at me
Every time I ask you "why?"

You never tell me what I did
tell me what I did
tell me what I did wrong
Track Name: Put The Coffee On
He said, she said
No one knows
It's the same old same old
So it goes
The therapist said
"Don't go to bed seeing red"
You say you're mad at me
Well that's plain to see
I'm mad at you too
So at least we agree
It's another evening going down in flames

Put the coffee on it's gonna be a long night
You and me are gonna talk until we both feel alright
The moon can just go home and leave us
It's the only one going down without a fight

Well it's mountains/mole hills, no big deal
Why can't we just keep it real
Why can't we just have a happy meal
You say you're mad at me
Well that's plain to see
I'm mad at you too
So at least we agree
It's another evening going down in flames

Put the coffee on it's gonna be a long night
You and me are gonna talk until we both feel alright
The moon can just go home and leave us
It's the only one going down without a fight
Track Name: Just Like We Care
Tonight we're gonna use each other
Celebrate like two young lovers
Tonight we're gonna act just like we care
We'll say nice things like "I love you" and "guess who just got paid?"
Tonight we're gonna act just like we care

Just like we care
But we don't know
We're too damn scared
To let our feelings show
We lost the game
It was not fair
Tonight we'll act just like we care
Track Name: Letting You Know
I can't stop loving you
I won't stop letting you know
I can't stop loving you
I won't stop letting you know

You're sweet as molasses on a pile of sugarcane
You're my favorite drug, running wild in my vein
You're my ray of sunshine when I'm drowning in the rain
If I lost you, well I'd lose everything
Track Name: Ledge
I woke up on a ledge
Outside a window pane
Thirty stories high
It was starting to pour down rain
My feet were getting slippery
And I could not feel my toes
The temperature kept dropping
Icicles on my nose

How did I get here in the first place?
Was it too much living on the edge?
I've got no time to sit and worry, my love
I've got to get myself off this ledge

Looked to my left
Looked to my right
I made sure that I didn't look down
A kid peeked out the window
He said, "you make a pretty sad clown"
I said, "Hey, kid! Can you help me out?"
But he ran away in fear
His mom popped out and said
"You sonofabitch, now the cops are coming here"

How did I get here in the first place?
Was it too much living on the edge?
I've got no time to sit and worry, my love
I've got to get myself off this ledge

The cops showed up
They were dressed in blue
They said "jump, boy, jump"
"That's what you'd better do"
I said, "I can't cuz I can't trust you"
They said, "Hold tight while we hit the booze"
Cops got drunk and they went to bed
They left me standing on that ledge
I thought to myself, "man, what a mess"
What happened next was anyone's guess
Track Name: 8 Feet Tall
I was born into rock n roll
It came and found me and filled my soul
It told me to let life go
And since then mine's been out of control

I'm 8 feet tall
But I still feel small
But your love makes me feel strong
I'm pressin on

When I walk on down farther into town
And they see my face all they do is frown
I tell em that I came to rage
And all they do is say, "You better behave"

I'm 8 feet tall
But I still feel small
But your love makes me feel strong
I'm pressin on

And I can't talk to the other kids
Mama said I never did
I never could look them in the eyes
What's the point when everybody's telling lies?

I'm 8 feet tall
But I still feel small
But your love makes me feel strong
I'm pressin on

I can't go where the other kids play
Cuz when I show up they all walk away
I never learned to play their games
And they never even learned my name

I'm 8 feet tall
But I still feel small
But your love makes me feel strong
I'm pressin on
Track Name: Powerplay
Piss on the man
Piss on the man
Piss on the man, it's a motherfucking powerplay

I showed up 15 late
Then I took me a cigarette break
I got full from the food I ate
And I didn't even hesitate to break my plate

Piss on the man
Piss on the man
Piss on the man, I ain't holding his hand--no way

Piss on the man
Piss on the man,
Piss on the man, it's a motherfucking powerplay

I stole me some silverware
And some money that I could share
That's when the bossman started to stare
That stupid motherfucker thinks that I still care--I don't

The bossman gave me praise
We even talked about a raise
That's when I put him in his place
Because we both know it wasn't gonna happen anyway

Piss on the man
Piss on the man
Piss on the man, I ain't holding his hand--no way

Piss on the man
Piss on the man,
Piss on the man, it's a motherfucking powerplay
Track Name: 5 Gallon Bucket
I've got a five gallon bucket full of tears
And I'm shipping it to your door
Just let me know
The next time you're running low
And I'll hear your voice
And I will make some more

Sitting at home
And once again I'm all alone
And there's nothing to do but cry
And I would be rich
If I could sell all this
But these times are tough
No one wants to buy

I've got a five gallon bucket full of tears
And I'm shipping it to your door
Just let me know
The next time you're running low
And I'll hear your voice
And I will make some more

Sitting at home
And once again I'm all alone
And there's nobody knocking at my door
My poor telephone
only rocks a dial tone
And I done forgot what it was for

I've got a five gallon bucket full of tears
And I'm shipping it to your door
Just let me know
The next time you're running low
And I'll hear your voice
And I will make some more
Track Name: Extra Credit
I took two instead of one
I don't know why, it just sounded fun
The doctor says I shouldn't take none
But I took two instead of one

I took three instead of two
It seemed like something I should do
So don't judge me and I won't judge you
I took three instead of two

I took four instead of three
Instead of three, I took four
I took four instead of three
Instead of three, I took four

Almost almost overdose
Almost almost comatose
Almost almost overdose
Almost almost comatose
Track Name: Hard Times
You're making fun of the clothes I wear
Telling me I should cut my hair
And that I don't understand that sometimes life ain't fair
You let me starve when you had food
You told me I should change my attitude
Well, pardon me
I'm not trying to be rude

I'm living on hard times
I can't explain it to you
You're stuck up on cloud nine
Sniffing your glue
You're screaming at me and I don't know what it's all about
But with my hands tied behind my back
I can't help you out

You drive around in fancy cars
You're having lunch with movie stars
And you let me know just how great you are
You ask my why I don't fit in
I wipe the success off your chin
See you're playing games that I don't want to win

I'm living on hard times
I can't explain it to you
You're stuck up on cloud nine
Sniffing your glue
You're screaming at me and I don't know what it's all about
But with my hands tied behind my back
I can't help you out
Track Name: Better Than You
Yesterday I saved the world
Just by waking up
The dentist pulled my baby teeth
And he put them in a golden cup
My daddy is rich
I never work a lick
Some people call me Richard
You can just call me DICK

I'm better than you
It's a fact of life.

I got a walk in closet
And it's bigger than your place
God finally make perfection
And he put it on my face
The perfect pair
A head of golden hair
I say that life is easy
You say it just ain't fair

I'm better than you
It's a fact of life.

I only drink imported beers
No well drinks will do
Everyone says I'm pretty
And they say I smell good too
I drive the biggest SUV
That mama could afford
It's got chrome on the inside
And platinum floor boards

I'm better than you
It's a fact of life.

Never ever ever ever home home
Never ever ever ever home
Never ever ever ever home home
Never ever ever ever home
Please leave a message at the tone
Track Name: Sick and Tired
I'm feeling sick
I'm sick and tired of you
I'm feeling sick
I'm sick and tired of you

You're nothing like the one
Nothing like the one I used to know
And I was hanging on
I was hanging on but i might just let go

Will you pick me up?
Baby, when I get knocked down
And will you still miss me?
Even when I'm in your town

Pour the tonic down my throat
Make sure it does the trick
I've been feeling so bad lately
I've been feeling sick
