Track Name: I Got Tired
I got tired and then I quit
I haven't seen the last of it
I got tired and then I quit
I haven't seen the last of it
Never old and never young
Another chance to bite my tongue

Every weekend it's the same
But we don't call it out by name
The world comes grinding to a halt
And I just swear it's not my fault

I got tired and then I quit
I haven't seen the last of it
Cities fall and wars are won
What's said is said, done is done

Every weekend it's the same
But we don't call it out by name
The world comes grinding to a halt
And I just swear it's not my fault
I got tired and then I quit
I haven't seen the last of it
Never old and never young
Another chance to bite my tongue

Will you bolt, my friend
If you find me stuck in my ways
Track Name: Witch Hunt
There's no way to become it
When this thing becomes you

So live how you want it
Just like you own it

You can be the better man
You don't have to feel a thing

It's what the witches do
And it's what you can do
We all make excuses
We get lost in the crowd

What your big mistake was
You let them protect you
Track Name: Baby Brother
My baby brother got swept out to sea
My baby brother got swept out to sea
And all I can think of is what he'll never see
All I can think of is what he'll never see

He never fought when the ocean took him
He let the waves crash and carry him in
He raised up his sail and just left with the wind
He raised up his sail and left with the wind

But many years later on my side of the sea
I got a letter he had written to me
He's seen many things that I'll never see
He's seen many things that I'll never see
Track Name: Gone Are The Days
Gone are the days when you won't run away
How long is too long and when will you stay?
The doors are locked with boards and nails, my love

Your teeth and your nails, they are all that you've got
Your tail's in your legs when you learn what you're not
The doors are locked with boards and nails, my love

Warm up the car first and I won't complain
The bankers and lawyers, they all sound the same
The lines are cut and numbers fail my love

The doors are locked with boards and nails, my love
My love

Gone are the days when you won't run away
Gone are the days when you won't run away
Gone are the days when you won't run away
Gone are the days when you won't run away
Track Name: Molecules To You
All my heart and all my soul
I see your face in every one I know
I'm all tucked in, come share my blood
You left me here with this, my one true love

It's all yours
My everything
I'll give it all, my molecules to you

I'll rot away, just come back soon
I wish it were you that were me and me that were you

I'll leave my soul
Sell all my gold
I'll give it all, my molecules to you
You can burn my skin
You can have me whole
Molecules to you

Girl, it could be you
If you only want it to
I'll stand all day and wait for you
The world can melt away
Molecules to you

All my heart and all my soul
I see your face in every one I know
I'm all tucked in, come share my blood
You left me here with this, my one true love
Molecules to you

My molecules to you
Track Name: Woods
I spent too many years by myself
I spent too much time by myself
I spent too many years by myself
I spent too much time by myself

I spent too much time by myself
I spent too many years all alone
Way out in the woods all alone
Way out in the woods by myself

I spent too much time by myself
I spent too much time all alone
Way out in the woods all alone
Way out in the woods by myself

In these woods, the vines and the swamp
In these mountains deep in the south
I am headed to a shallow grave
In these woods, I'm wasting away

(enough of this shit)

I spent too much time by myself
I spent too many years all alone
I am headed to a shallow grave
In these woods, I'm wasting away

I spent too much time by myself
I spent too many years all alone
Way out in the woods all alone
Way out in the woods by myself
Track Name: No Reminder
I don't need no reminder
I don't need no reminder
'Cause if I told you once before, I shouldn't have to remind you again

A low-life, lonesome addict, dressed-up, hushed and stepping on toes
A used-up, old-hat run-off you could find with your eyes closed
I don't need no reminder
'Cause if I told you once before, I shouldn't have to remind you again

I'm all ears, mediocre at best
Throw more wood on the fire, honey, get it off your chest
I'm stale and gray, I'm all or none
I'm in it for the long haul, until you're done
No reminder

I don't need no reminder
I don't need no reminder
'Cause if I told you once before, I shouldn't have to remind you again
Track Name: Another Man's Song
We didn't ask for this
We didn't beg for this
But here we are

You're gonna live real long
You're gonna live real long
Keep singing, "Me. Me. Me. Me. Me."
You're gonna live real long

But the dogs will sniff you out
You scream and scream and shout: "Me. Me. Me."
"I'm gonna live real long."

One man singing another man's song
