Track Name: The Great Basement
in the great basement
men have grey faces
food so plain, tasteless
glass hope, don't break it

and you're all on your own

in the great basement
clocks have no faces
to escape, take this
sign on the waitlist

and you're all on your own
pain ingrown
all on your own

and you're all on your own
pain ingrown
all on your own
nowhere to go
all on your own
pain ingrown
all on your own

Track Name: cave
red coat
feed your kids
and go home
tell'em no more trackin' dirt on the floor
tell me, too
but my den
is my head
in it you
are my friend
but more

UH-OH
LOOK AWAY
BUT IT'S ON MY MIND
ANYWAY
MIGHT AS WELL CAVE

blue jeans
earn your bills
and go home
i could fly a zeppelin through the hole
in your soul
but its host
is like dope
to my head
are we friends
well, no

UH-OH
LOOK AWAY
BUT IT'S ON MY MIND
ANYWAY
MIGHT AS WELL CAVE
WHAT'S ONE DAY
EVERYBODY FAILS
IT'S OK
MIGHT AS WELL CAVE

hot waterfall
no way to stall
shakin' me up
shakin' me up

rectangled love
pump through my blood
shakin' me up
shakin' me up
Track Name: i'm the same man
i've got the illness
you're just a witness
well i can't just go and be free, no
that doesn't happen to people like me, no
i gotta change, man

I'M THE SAME MAN
I'M THE SAME MAN I BEEN
ALWAYS THE STRANGE MAN
I'M LIKE THE SMOKE IN THE WIND
AND YOU CAN'T ERASE ME
I WILL JUST STICK TO YOUR CLOTHES
UNTIL YOU EMBRACE ME
COME NICE AND CLOSE

i've come a long way
sailing the wrong way
when the boat rocks, pardon me for vomiting
but the sea is rough
obviously it's gonna be
i just need a gameplan

I'M THE SAME MAN
I'M THE SAME MAN I BEEN
ALWAYS THE STRANGE MAN
I'M LIKE THE SMOKE IN THE WIND
AND YOU CAN'T ESCAPE ME
I WILL JUST STICK TO YOUR BONES
UNTIL YOU EMBRACE ME
COME NICE AND CLOSE

I'M THE SAME MAN
I'M THE SAME MAN
I'M THE SAME MAN
Track Name: bASEBALL & cHAIN
i'll try anything
i'll buy anything
i'm withering

baseball & chain
driving me insane

i'll go anywhere
i'll take any pay
i'm listening

baseball & chain
driving me insane

ONLY GOT ONE LIFE
HOW'M'I GONNA SPEND IT?
DRAGGIN' 'ROUND A BASEBALL,
ACTIN' LIKE IT'S EIGHT STONE?
SURE, I'D RATHER HAVE
NOTHIN' ON MY ANKLE
STILL IT'S JUST A BASEBALL
I SHOULD BE GRATEFUL
COULD'VE HAD THE REAL DEAL
LUCKY I CAN MOVE AT ALL

on my island
alone but violent
get well
well get
yourself
some help

golden silence
mojo risin'
get well
well get
yourself
some help
Track Name: Strikeout (Interlude)
it was the one place i felt safe
it was the one place i felt safe
it was the one place
it was the one place

it was the one thing 'kept me sane
it was the one thing 'kept me sane
it was the one thing
the one thing

it was the one face in my day
the one face in my day
it was the one face
i wanted to see

yes it was

it was
Track Name: Wannittoo
he's moving out of state to just start fresh
he's leaving her behind to make the best
of what's left
of his life
two new kids
come with his new wife
he's happy but his ex-wife wills it not
she'd rather have his weight in bills & rocks
so he pays
and he prays
that one day
she'll meet her fate

I WANNITTOO
AND WE STILL HAVE TIME
WE'LL GET IT SOON
AND THEN WE'LL BE FINE
I PROMISE YOU
THE MADNESS WILL FALL
AND ONCE AGAIN
THE PEACE WILL ARISE

six figures going six ways down and out
he's saving but it's swings and roundabouts
kids in school
wife at home
pays insurance, mortgage, and loans
each seven days he'd take one for himself
no longer since the bitch rose up from hell
now he sleeps through his rage
and he can't seem to turn this page

I WANNITTOO
AND WE STILL HAVE TIME
WE'LL GET IT SOON
AND THEN WE'LL BE FINE
I PROMISE YOU
THE MADNESS WILL FALL
AND ONCE AGAIN
THE PEACE WILL ARISE

and she digs her dirty claws into his back
nearly gives the poor man a heart attack
but he's still standing tall
and he won't back down at all


:)!
:0!
:D!
:P!
Track Name: if yr mad (they win)
i won't leave
this is home now

can't you see
i'm alright now

you don't know my situation
risk my life on instigation
i've more pride than i've got patience, so
i tell myself

IF YOU'RE MAD
THEY WIN
IF YOU'RE MAD
THEY WIN

no more dreams
no more nightmares

no more flight
no more airfare

you don't know my situation
waste my mind on fake sensations
i've more pride than i've got patience, so
i tell myself

IF YOU'RE MAD,
THEY WIN
IF YOU'RE MAD,
THEY WIN
too bad,
gave in

sometimes you know
you're right to blow
apart with rage
it's hard to slow
so we move on
suppress and wilt
anger ferments
and turns to guilt

who said i'm wrong?
i'm right, you're wrong
who said i'm wrong?
i'm right, you're wrong
you said i'm wrong
i'm right, you're wrong


OK, you win
i can't begin
to speak my mind
i just won't try

if you're mad,
they win
Track Name: only guy around
i'm jealous
though as of yet
they haven't even met
she's hot as he is cool
they'll have a kid or two

i thought she dug me
saw through my ugly
but i'm realizing now

i was just the only guy around

I WAS JUST THE ONLY GUY AROUND
THE ONLY GUY AROUND

so sure i was the light
and she the lowly moth
i failed to see
her flying at the switch to turn me off

i thought she loved me
saw through my ugly
but i'm theorizing now

maybe i was just the only guy around

I WAS JUST THE ONLY GUY AROUND
THE ONLY GUY AROUND
Track Name: aLL I HAVE
i don't wanna have to resent her
resent her
resent her
i don't wanna have to resent her
but now i have to
resent her
resent her

i don't have the face to attract her
nor strength to
combat her

i don't have the voice to impress her
it's not even loud enough to be heard
and i know
it's absurd
to place blame
upon her

but this is all i have

THIS IS ALL I HAVE
THIS IS ALL I HAVE
JUST LET ME PROVE
WHAT I'M WORTH TO YOU

i don't have the heart to forget her
as if she'd
remember
i don't have the balls to betray her
but that's exactly what she deserves
and i know
it's absurd
to wish that
upon her

but this is all i have

THIS IS ALL I HAVE
THIS IS ALL I HAVE
JUST LET ME PROVE
WHAT I'M WORTH TO YOU
(this is all i have) nobody's waiting at the door
(this is all i have) no golden memories to restore
(this is all i have) just let me prove
(all i have) what i'm worth to you
Track Name: Just Me And The Birds Again
it's just me and the birds again
'sjust me and the birds again

this is what the summer's for
summer and youth
sleepless and impetuous
everything's a waste of time

it's just me and the birds again
'sjust me and the birds again

JUST ME AND THE BIRDS AGAIN
JUST ME AND THE BIRDS AGAIN
SUNRISE TUCKIN' ME IN
JUST ME AND THE BIRDS AGAIN

morning has awoken
yahoos abound
the city streets have spoken
they want me out
and i wish it was

just me and the birds again

JUST ME AND THE BIRDS AGAIN
JUST ME AND THE BIRDS AGAIN
SUNRISE TUCKIN' ME IN
JUST ME AND THE BIRDS AGAIN

it's all of the sadness of isolation
with none of the peaceful quiet places

it's just me and the birds again
just me and the birds again

JUST ME AND THE BIRDS AGAIN
JUST ME AND THE BIRDS AGAIN
SUNRISE TUCKIN' ME IN
JUST ME AND THE BIRDS AGAIN
