Track Name: The Last Song
seasons change and so do i
no matter how much i try you're sometimes still on my mind
and each passing day
takes you further away
that's the way it is
and that's ok

and i guess things never really worked out the way we wanted to
and that's a bit of a drag, man, but hey, that's life and at times there's nothing much you can do

so this will be the last song i'll write about you
i'd like to believe that i have better stuff to do
than writing these bullshit love songs about things
that didn't come true

seasons change but i've stayed the same
i've been keeping it alive but i'm gonna douse this flame

i'll put it out
i'll put it out

so this is the last song i'll write about you
i'd like to believe i have better stuff to do
i'm tired of moping around
there's bound to be someone good around
that's why this is the last song i've wrote about you

i'm gonna sing about things that make me happy
even if it makes me look kinda sappy
but above all i'm gonna sing about...
Track Name: Work Ethic
once you were a child
and your dreams were crazy and
wild was your youth
there was nothing you could lose
you thought rock'n'roll would save your soul
so you tried
oh, but time wasn't on your side
and your old bag of tricks is all worn out

so how can you play
when you're not in the game
you haven't even seen it for years?

and how does it feel
to have lost your appeal
to the folks who once who held you dear?

does being the boss outweigh the cost
of only saying what people want to hear?

have you forgotten what you started this for
was it just for the money and fame
or was it something more?

and how can you say that you were there that day
when no one even saw you at all
and tell me how do you sleep at night
when people buy that shit you write
that kind of work ethic, man, it just ain't right

oh and i burn
fuel is pumping engines
burning hard loose and clean
on i burn
turning my direction
so gimme fuel gimme fire gimme that which i desire

and tell me how do you sleep at night
when people buy that shit you write
that kind of work ethic man, it just ain't right
it ain't right
no no no
Track Name: When We Come Around
won't you please keep an eye out
for the morning light
we've been hiding for so long
that all we know is the cold and bitter night
but it's alright , we'll make it in time
we won't take it, all the buildings will shake and the ground's gonna break

when we'll come around
it'll make such a sound
that even fish will scream
while dashing up the stream
so hide your daughters and wives
if you know what's wise
and don't get caught in between
events you cannot forsee
you better gather a crowd
when we'll come around

it might be tomorrow
or a week after that

but we'll come around
and it'll make such a sound
that even trees will bleed
and fall down on their knees
things won't ever be the same
believe me, this is no game
trust me when i say
there is a storm coming
you better start running
it won't matter if you're rich or poor, buddy
we won't care what's your name, whether you're wholesome or lame
you'll end up just the same
know the end is nigh
don't bother asking why
there won't be nothin left
when we're through
it won't be a pretty view
so go and gather that crowd
Track Name: Don't Think Twice, It's All Right
it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
if you don't know by now
and it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
it don't matter anyhow

when your rooster crows at the break of dawn
look out your window, and I'll be gone
you're the reason I'm traveling on
but don't think twice, it's all right

and it ain't no use in turning on your light, babe
the light i've never known
and it ain't no use in turning on your light, babe
i'm on the dark side of the road

still i wish there was somethin' you would do or say
to try and make me change my mind and stay
i guess we never did too much talking anyway
but don't think twice, it's all right

and it ain't no use in calling out my name, babe
like you never done before
and it ain't no use in calling out my name, babe
i can't hear you any more

i'm a-thinking and a-wonderin' walking down that road
i once loved a woman, a child i'm told
i gave her my heart but she wanted my soul
but don't think twice, it's all right

so long honey, babe
where I'm bound, i can't tell
but goodbye's too good a word, babe
so I'll just say fare thee well

now i ain't saying you treated me unkind
you could have done better but I don't mind
you just kinda wasted my precious time
but don't think twice, it's all right.
Track Name: No One Ever Told Me (Growing Up Would Suck So Much)
you took me in that day
and led me across your splintered floor
stuffed my pockets full of rocks
gave me a wink and shut the door

you said that there were opportunities
waiting in line for me
and that i just needed to try and reach em
but i felt tired of your endless preaching

so then i walked out on my own
the pouring rain drowned out the ringing of my phone
but i didn't care
i just kept walking to god knows where

i thought about my childhood and family
they loved me so and we lived together happily
without all the mind tricks and politics
and all the other stupid things that adulthood brings

no one ever told me
growing up would suck this much
the more i piece life together
the more i feel out of touch

so i stumbled upon a river
it's restless current made me stop and shiver
so i took out those rocks
and without much thought i threw them in

one by one i watched them sink
and as i stood there it made me think
about the rocks and the ripples in my life
and how that river flows on, no matter what's inside

but no one ever told me
growing up would suck this much
the more i piece life together
the more i feel out of touch

and no one ever told me
loving you would be so rough
you keep finding your way back in
just when i thought i've had enough
