Track Name: Nashville Avenue
Oh
My pictures are filled with pictures of her
Oh
I don't see her anymore, but I think of how things were
Oh
My memory is filled with pictures of her face
Oh
And now I'm gone without a trace

Oh, Heart Ache is Feeling Like Dying
It won't ever kill me, but sometimes it seems like it's trying
Oh, Oh, What on Earth Could I Do
You're Not Here To Tell Me That The One That Has to save yourself is You

Oh
My eyes are burned with pictures of her smile
Oh
I hadn't felt that good in such a long time

Oh
I miss talking to her til the middle of the night
Oh
Now I don't feel so good and can't get myself right

Oh, Heart Ache is Feeling Like Dying
It won't ever kill me, but sometimes it seems like it's trying
Oh, Oh, What on Earth Could I Do
You're Not Here To Tell Me That The One That Has to save yourself is You

Driving Under Tree Tunnels On Nashville Avenue
The Hazy Sun is Shining Through The Windshield
So Dreamy and Spacey in My Fun Eggshell World
Double Standards Flying Through The Air Like Birds

I'm suspending my mind
I'm suspending my disbelief
I'm suspending my doubts
Til They cause me no more grief

Cause I'm Driving Under Tree Tunnels On Nashville Avenue
The Hazy Sun is Shining Through The Windshield
So Dreamy and Spacey in My Fun Eggshell World
Double Standards Flying Through The Air Like Birds

On Nashville Avenue
Track Name: Chelsea
I said goodbye to you today
I didn't want to
We were listening to Chelsea Hotel, Number Two

You Put on Sun Glasses and a Cowboy hat
And then you quickly took them off cause you didn't want to be that guy

You said most people fear being dead
Before they want to be
and you said, to let that control your life
Is a Bad Mentality

For There Will Always Be people that you love
At every stage of your life
And if you tell them that you love them you won't ever have to say goodbye

It's a shame what's so bad for me, I often think is so cool
Like a photo on my wall that I stared at back in High School
So I guess I'll have to see you
As another passing friend
Someone who I will miss but I can never ever see again

I said goodbye to you today
I didn't want to
We were listening to Chelsea Hotel, Number Two
Track Name: I Wanna Have Some Fun
I wanna have Some Fun
And I Wanna Drive My Car
All I wanna do is be with you baby tonight

I've been watching you and I think you look so very kind
I've been watching you and I wish that you were mine

Oh, such a funny thing

That I wanna drive my car
and I wanna have some fun
All I wanna do is be with you baby tonight

I've been watching you and I think you look so very fine
I've been watching you and I wish that you could be mine

Oh, such a funny thing
Track Name: Extinguished
A binge here and a binge there
and he won't be sober three months

One day walking and talking
The next day on the verge of dying
with his whole family crying

Sometimes it's the extinguishing of a light
And Sometimes he goes on seemingly invincible
through every day and night

But how remarkable
to scrape the depths of hell
To be the reason for the bell
Only to climb so far back to hug his children
and greet the day anew

Sometimes it's the extinguishing of a light
And Sometimes he goes on seemingly invincible
through every day and night

Oh Girl
Why'd you have to go

I'd really love to see you smile
Track Name: Same Old Things Again
Here Comes The Wants
And The Urges and The Needs
For the things that are so bad for me

Here comes compulsion, rationalization
Here comes the every once in awhile

Here comes numb
no longer fun
Oblivion is kinda played out

Here comes pain
Here comes panic
here comes food
and hypomanic
I'm living with the same old things again

Here comes conviction
here comes restriction
An ultimatum, never do again

Here comes days
of feeling better
of feeling pure, but bored as hell

Here comes work
Here comes stress
Alarm clock
Get dressed

Here comes pain
Here comes panic
here comes food
and hypomanic
I'm living with the same old things again

Here comes guilt
Here comes shame
As if God loves you any less for your sins

Here Comes The Wants
And The Urges and The Needs
For the things that are so bad for me

Here comes the point
where you change or you don't
where you will or you won't do something else
Track Name: Disconnect
Weighed Down With Multiple Vices
A Torrential Internal
But told I'm so nice

Today's the day
I find a new way
To see what gave me kicks is now making me sick

Why the disconnect between the pleasure and pain?
When it hurts so much to be so good?
Why the disconnect between the pleasure and pain?
When it feels so good to be so bad?

Well, I'm tired and unattractive
and not having any fun, and I'm done
Track Name: Broken Dream
I'm doing well
But catching hell
From everyone
Who says I've changed

Cause when you choose
To do some changing
Your friends
are re-arranged

The days are getting longer
My will is getting stronger
By not engaging
in the fight

Getting over urges
for old habits
that re-visit me in the night

How the hell did I stray so far?
Glamorizing seedy bars
as romantic movie scenes

Thank God I realized
that there's more to life than a narcissistic concept of a broken dream
Track Name: Looking Back
When he was young
He sang about fun and heartbreak

Trying to write those same songs now seems so fake

Spent a few years, trying to be ironic
and another few years trying to be iconic
And another few years trying to be moronic

Now he's more laid back, reserved and laconic
And he's switched from whiskey and beer to gin and tonics
Track Name: Hill
Too Many Things Keep Me Up at Night
But I'm Living Better, and I'm Living Right
But it's so hard when I'm so tired
Seems I have two speeds, exhausted and wired

But I'm gonna get over this damned hill
Carrying all my ills
I can keep waking up and paying my bills

Ignorance is everywhere
I know there's some in me
Hate is more deliberate
Prejudice is involuntary
I try to overlook it, but struggle with it naturally
My grandparents had it tough
And in a different way, so do we

But I'm gonna get over this damned hill
Carrying all my ills
I can keep waking up and paying my bills
Track Name: Pushed Away
Feels like I've been let down by some friends
Fair enough, I've let them down too
But, there's no real need to try to make amends
They're too busy to tell my problems to

But, I listen to people's problems as my job
I don't mind, I'm pretty good at this
But, some so called friends want me to work for free
I don't hear from them when they're happy

But to all my true friends, you know who you are
when you come to me with your sadness and your scars
and you talk of how your brain is noisy
Just know our talks are not work to me

Some of my friends are so inside themselves
like they don't want to talk to anyone else
I guess they're trying to limit their influences
struggling just to think for themselves

I try to not be offended by your not calling
But the space you've put between us is real
I feel our friendship is slowly fading
I hate it, but I guess that's just the deal

And what I want to say
To my friends who moved away
Even if you pushed me away
I want you to know it's okay

And I still think of you
almost every day
Even if I pushed you away
I want you to know it's okay
