Track Name: Anna Was the Enemy
You stare at her picture
And now they're nothing more than photographs
Of two lonely people now
who try their best to hold a laugh

And you will never see her again
Don't say that she was more than a friend
Cause you made a choice right then
And you was right all along

Anna was the enemy
When Anna broke your heart in two
Anna was the enemy
and she was a bitch man
you know it's true

you turned to the bottle
and now you're waiting for the light to change
So many questions now
from a man who now feels half his age

You need something to turn it around
You're tired of crying tears of a clown
Go ring up a girl downtown who has
Just what you need

Anna was the enemy
When Anna split your lip in two
Anna was the enemy
I think when you told her
"I don't love you"

Anna was the enemy
There was nothing more that you could do
Anna was the enemy
and it could’ve killed her
Said it coulda killed her

I'm not the kind of guy to spell it out
She found a man she could lie to
She found your heart and she chewed it out
We all could tell that she liked you
I have the money if you have the time
If you will always remember
I know a girl who can sort you out
If you remember forget her

Anna was the enemy
When Anna broke your heart in two
Anna was the enemy
And she was a bitch man
and you know it

Anna was the enemy
there was nothing more that you could do
Anna was the enemy
Track Name: Selfish
Oh let me tell you about the girl that I love
the one who don’t love me (Selfish!)

I buy her flowers and the things that she wants
I love so patiently

I am so thoughtful when I’m making my love
She’s always coming first
But she gets tired and a sore little mouth
I tell you that’s the worst

I think I finally could be wrong

I got a girl and you might know her (Selfish!)
She gets around but now they tell me (Selfish!)
I got a mind to go talk to her mother (Selfish!)
She is my love there is no other (Selfish!)

She doesn’t like my friends
She’s hating my crowd
And every time we meet
She says she’ll leave me, she’s going to chuck me out
How could she possibly?

I can’t believe I would call this love

I’ve got a girl and you might know her (Selfish!)
You don’t believe me? I don’t believe me! (Selfish!)
I’ve got a mind to go talk to her mother (Selfish!)
She must be one hell of a daughter…

Oh let me tell you about the girl that I love
the one who don’t love me
the one who don’t love me
I gave her everything
Track Name: Take My Life
Take my life into your hands
I’m hoping I’m a part of your plans
It’s just as well ‘cause you’ve been on my mind

I’ve fallen down
I’m into your hex
But you don’t want love
You’re here for the sex
Better stop and take my own advice
Here’s a girl and she won’t ask twice

Take it all
Take my life
My world could fall now
But it would get me high

Says she’s all grown up
and I know what she means
Though she’s one month shy
She’s still seventeen

And it looks like I could be doing time
Better wait till you’re older
You sweet little love of mine

Take it off
Take it all
Take my life

Call a doctor I’m not going to make it
Call the police I’m not going to take it
Call me a pussy
Not in this for pussy
But it would be fine!

Take it all
Track Name: Wide Eyed Wonder
Hey
I think she’s coming around
and it’s obvious to me she doesn’t know where she is
They brought her in unconscious
She’s awake and she’s alive
it’s so obvious

It’s a wide eyed wonder
why oh why you didn’t die

Girl you wear your heart on your sleeve
and your so-called best of friends
could see it a mile away
yeah they brought you home for dinner
And then they served you up for five
it’s so obvious

It’s a wide eyed wonder
why oh why you didn’t die

Hey
I think she’s coming around
and it’s obvious to me she had no clue of where she was
The less that you find answers
I think the more they’ll find you find
it’s so obvious
Track Name: Redwings
Well I know there’s a million things about you
so go slow as I undress the very being of your soul
And we’ll laugh at all the reasons why we’ll never stand each other

When will I be coming to?
We’re drinking the same old wine
Too tired of speaking up I’m down
Now that everybody heard
I’m not going to quit this time
Drink right from your golden cup I’m down

It’s your hair that you rock like Jenny Lewis
I get scared ‘cause all it takes is a whisper
then I’m impaired
Then forever more I’ll always be the envy of my brother

When will I be coming to?
We’re drinking the same old wine
Too tired of speaking up I’m down
Yeah you were just standing there
and I was a lonely guy
So much for my conscience set I’m down

You’re filling me up child
Track Name: Finally Out of My Mind
I’m going to paint a picture
You won’t find it in your good book
I looked up your internet address

Put on your mama’s high heels
Put on a little makeup
But I think you look much better dressed

Somebody’s calling
You know I don’t even hear it
There’s a truth I’ve been singing
I can’t get nowhere near it
Because I’m finally out of my mind

It must have been a good day
the morning you found Jesus
and said that we all would go to hell
Thinking on the money they’ve been paying for you honey
It’s just going to send you there as well

Somebody’s calling
I really don’t even hear it
and there’s a truth I’ve been singing
I can’t get nowhere near it
Because I’m finally out of my mind
And you’re finally out of my mind

I don’t know what to tell you
But I’m always going to love you
only my heart need to adjust
I’m going to have to buy you
If only just to see you
Is that what you mean in God you trust?

Someone is calling
You know I don’t even hear it
and there’s a truth I’ve been singing
I can’t get nowhere near it
Because I’m finally out of my mind
Yes you’re finally out of my mind
And I’m finally out of my mind
Track Name: ...that Strung Up the Rebel
It was strange enough running into you
after all of these fitful years
But weren’t you the one flicking off the man
when we last drew our blood and tears?

Tell me you didn’t
you grew up
grew out of them Chucks®

You were my hero
A comic book masterpiece
Put down your guitar and some bitter lines
That you never would sing to me

Tell me it wasn’t the money or your lack of friends
That strung up the rebel
You’re a rebel

You’re Young but you’re tired

As quiet descends on a broken world
the night came and took your heart
What kills me the most is you’ve still got it inside
And just looking tears me apart

Tell me the rebel will never
Will nigh strike again
I always will revel a rebel

Who’s young and afraid

Cause oh then you grow up
And your memory will fade
And on comes a conscience
Track Name: We Have Arrived
Oddly placed in just as oddly a time
But I can’t get my bag I can’t get lifted on time
It’s alright
We have arrived

Fighting a tear for someone else’s crime
But you got to go you got to get yourself into line
Be alive
We have arrived

I’m not the one who said it
But I can’t do nothing at all
When there are people just as lovely as you starting to fall

Straight in the road there is a man on the mound
Says we’ve got to get together cause together it’s on
There’ll be light
We have arrived

Woke up at three and found the voices had gone
Still we’re winning when we’re singing we’ll be singing along
To the night
We have arrived

I’m not the one who said it
And I wouldn’t dare put you down
If you could see it you’d believe it you’d be coming around

Now don’t think of life as just a really long time
Cause your guess is as good as a good guess of mine
Where it will go
Nobody knows

I’m not the one who said it
But they won’t be there when you call
It’s just as well because they never really loved you at all

It was a lie
We have arrived
Track Name: A Beautiful Place {I Sing Out}
Have you felt like dying here?
It’s a beautiful place and my love lies near
I am a man and I hold in my hand what might kill me

Have you ever made mistakes?
They are beautiful things and the more I make
the more I can hold in the tears that I’ve sold
while I sing them

I sing out
It’s in my head and out my mouth

and you. Have you told your love
you’ll be sorry to go and leave this
beautiful, wonderful, you are the one I’ve been dreaming of
Consider it done when my song it is sung
and I love you.

Singing love
what is this I’m dreaming of?
Track Name: Calling You Out
I must be a man
’cause I don’t think quite like that
A gift is a gift and non-returnable

You must be naive
to think my heart don’t bleed
And the tears that I’ve cried
Are non-refundable

It was your choice
it’s not my fault
I lost my voice
In calling you out
I’m calling you out

This must be a sign
I stalled trying to phone your line
Forgetting a number I never memorized

These few little things
Pull gently on my heartstrings
And when pulled in succession
I become hypnotized

It was your choice
It’s not my fault
I lost my voice
In calling you out
I’m calling you out

But it won’t be the same
If my poor heart could ever love you again

Too bad cause it can’t it won’t
My pride it don’t wanna take it
When the best you looked at all this year was naked
Still I’ll play the tune I know that you like
And I’ll play the tune I know that you like

It was your choice
Track Name: Concessions of the Cheated
The stars aren’t aligned like they were the last time
The sun met the earth in this picture of mine
I’m taking you out of the memories that remind me of remembering you

A flash in the pan for an ordinary man
But in this new day and age I find me lost in a raincoat
Absorbing the streetlight that shines on your new lover
I mistook for a friend

And You!
the penny tips in your favor
Yes You!
here is one final letter you and only you need to read

I’m flying faster than paper
can take all this shit down.
For real it’s coming so true
And it’s all meant for you my love.

Call me hopeless and sad but you were all that I had
And in one single bout you knocked my teeth and my heart out
With blurred tunnel-vision I’ve made my decision
But it’s all I can do just to get over you

And You!
the penny tips in your favor
Yes You!
here is one final letter you and only you need to read

I’m flying faster than paper
So take what you can get my dear
It’s coming so true and it’s all meant for you
My love.
Not worthy of my love.
Track Name: Maybe I Could
I’ve been walking down the road
Getting colder as I go
What you said it might just hit this time
Before my heart can tell this head of mine

If I could do it all again
Would I waver would I bend?
You see to me I might just be myself
To win your heart I could be someone else

Maybe I could
And let the sun in
Maybe I could
But what fun would I be in?

When I’m doing alright
So maybe next time I could make it right

I could say you look so fine
be on my way but you will find
The minute I walk out the door from you
You’ll never get the same old line so true

From boys who only want to sleep with you
Boys who only want a piece of you

Don’t know you like I do
Don’t know who they lie to

Maybe I could
And let the sun in
Maybe I could
But what fun would I be in?

Playing around
It’s not from my town
Track Name: I Am the Ghost
Winter
the slumber

I am the ghost

People
tearful
but I cry the most
I am the ghost

That haunts you as your day unfolds
And you’ll see me when your hand gets cold
Your cool, cold hands

The old school
I’ll teach you
like you taught to me

Heartbreak
For my sake
would love to make you hurt
but I know you won’t

There’s one song that can make me cry
Stops me in my tracks and I don’t know why

Perhaps it was losing you
Perhaps it was losing your love
It was losing your love to an old prom song

It was losing your love that took a part of me
And it sucked coming down from this ecstasy
but it’s not coming back
It’s not coming back

Winter
the slumber

I am the ghost
