Track Name: Loaded
I woke up to a song by you
you sang it in your sleep
The sheep you're counting on
all struck a chord with me

So long
Yeah, you've got me loaded

Woke too late to tie my tie
all tied up in your hair
Just stared into your eyes
some things you never share
with me the things you need
The weeds that overgrow
they know to push the seeds
back underneath the stone

So long
Yeah, you've got me loaded
Track Name: U31
Miss you a ton
Sincerely yours,
My brain when I'm bored

I'm fried like the sun
On U31
Sitting here alone
Wasted again

My mind fills with gout
When I'm without
Time for some fun

Time to make haste
No time to waste
I jumped the gun
On U31

Can't wait to see you...
Can't wait to see you...
On U31,
Can't wait to see you...
Track Name: Bad Karma
She's got bad karma
It seems to come right out of the blue
She's a snake charmer
She sure as hell had charmed mine too

is all that we do for fun
is all that we've ever done
Track Name: Waking Nightmare
Blank stare
Guess it's best for me to stay inside
The calm before the storm's a waking nightmare
Just sitting on receding tides

Wake me up a quarter after three
Ambitions turn to foggy minded pipe dreams
Spacing out in apathy

Space is all we seem to have these days
But no where to go in the world

Someone's show and tell is up in flames
Just don't go chasing phones and ringing doorbells
Just stay cool and keep it tame

Swan songs
Coming at you at the speed of sound
The only thing in here that I can count on
Another resignation down

Blank stare
Guess it's best for me to stay inside
The calm before the storm's a total nightmare
Just sitting on receding tides
Track Name: Insane!
She came in on a Monday night
and shook her blue umbrella on my floor
Yeah, the sunny days
I don't get those anymore

Don't you know that I'm insane for wanting you?
When I know that all you do is make me blue?

I was at your window late last night
I threw some rocks up just to say hello
Yeah, I cracked the glass
And you weren't even home

Don't you know that you're insane for wanting me?
My footloose lack of inhibition's all you see
I know that one day it'll get the best of me
With my own hands dragging my feet

Run and tell the Pharisees
of Lazarus of Bethany
Jesus wept and no one seemed to care

So don't you know that it's not sane to crucify me
With your own hands tied at your feet
Track Name: ADD
I had a happy dream filled with nicotine
When I awoke to see the pack was empty
And I ignored all the things I adored
I guess I can't afford to pay attention

But I don't care
I just sit and stare
Well I don't care
I learned that life ain't fair

I walked around the block where I was born and raised
and everything it used to look so bigger
the games we used to play and all the things we'd say
to try to pass the days that kept us younger

But I don't care
I just sit and stare
But I don't care
Nobody makes it out alive
Track Name: Barren Aloha
Once, out on the shore
Walking alone, I saw a man with a guitar sing
He told me "Aloha's got me down"
He made a fist and it went like this...
Track Name: Reloaded
Passed out to a song by you
you sang it endlessly
Drank tea and laid around
Fell gently into sleep

So long
Yeah, you've got me loaded
