Track Name: Ants In The Butter
There’s a monkey in my kitchen and he’s throwing shit at me
I got a rash that won’t stop itchin and it’s burning when I pee
The rent is due I’m sniffing glue but I just can’t stop missing you
In spite of the rotten things that you have done to me

There’s bats up in my belfry and there’s eels in my pants
The front lawn is on fire and the butter’s full of ants
They’re banging on my door and there’s devils in the floor
Can’t take it anymore I wish that you’d come back to me

A thousand fucking reasons that I’d like to see you dead
A thousand fucking things that I still wish I’d never said
A thousand dirty motherfuckers you fucked our bed
But when it’s said and done you’re still the only girl for me

There’s a vortex in my cortex my medulla is on fire
I sewed my broken heart up with some old piano wire
I’m bleeding out of places that I never knew I had
I hated you so much I never thought I could be missing you so bad

I’ve been gargling with drano I’ve been eating broken glass
If I saw you in the crosswalk I would stomp down on the gas
There’s a body in the crawlspace there’s a monster in the hall
And that monkey in the kitchen he’s been laughing through it all

I’ve been honing up my razor while I sing your favorite song
I’ve been picturing your face with the pretty skin all gone
I’ve been scratching I’ve been itching while remembering your bitching
For the life of me I don’t know why I’m sorry that you’re gone

The giggles of a clown the seem to echo in my head
I’m leaving foot prints all around they’re sticky and they’re red
There’s fingers in the sink and my eyes are turning pink
And all that I can think is how I wish that you’d stay dead

My brain is spinning like a top inside it’s goddamn bowl
I gotta tell you loving you sure took it’s fucking toll
So someone tell the devil make an offer on my soul
The only thing I’m sure of is I don’t need it no more
Track Name: Haley's Comet
When I saw Haley’s Comet parked outside the bar
I kneeled down to vomit right there by her car
It felt like life had walked up kicked me in the balls
Felt like I would die right then and there

Then I saw Haley kissing that douche bag in the sweater
I knew I had to try, try hard to forget her
Kneeling in my puke I felt so goddamn small
It seemed that I was broke beyond repair

Then that sweater douche bag saw me grabbed me by the scruff
I wiped the spittle from my chin I said you ain’t so tough
He said I’ll kick your stalker ass he threw me ‘gainst the wall
As he beat me all that Haley did was stare
stop

He beat me up he beat me down he beat me like a drum
He beat me more than silly, he beat me stupid dumb
And when he finished my beating he let my body fall
And all that I had left was my despair

Then they got in Haley’s Comet and my true love drove away
I was soaked in blood and vomit in the gravel where I lay
It felt like life had walked up and kicked me in the balls
It felt like I could die right then and there
Track Name: Was That You?
Was that you standing in that doorway hid from view
Hiding in the shadows still I knew Oh I knew
There was a time I would have called to you
There was a time I would’ve called your name
When you were mine there was a time
Way back when way back then a long long time ago
The girl I knew is gone that’s all I know all I know
All I know

We play our games we roll the dice and then we take our turn
We play with fire till somebody gets burned
And all we learn

Is life ain’t fair We smile and pretend that we don’t care
We smile and pretend that we’re OK
And we walk away

Was that you standing in that doorway hid from view
What happened to the girl that I once knew
I once knew
What did they do to you
Track Name: A Place
I’ve gotta find a nice quiet place
A place where I can hang around
Where nobody will cut me down
A place where I can right all my wrongs

I’ve gotta find a nice quiet place
A place that they will never find
‘cause I think I’m gonna lose my mind
I think I’ve been around here to long
I’ve gotta find a place where I can be alone
I’ve gotta find a place where I can rest my bones
I’ve gotta find a place a place where there ain’t nothin
Maybe I can find something/ a place where I can be atone

I’ve gotta find a spot in the woods
Where nobody will bother me
I place where I don’t gotta be
Where I don’t gotta be nobody’s fool

I gotta find a place far away
Far away from all this pain
Far away from inside this brain
It’s way too crowded in here
I’ve gotta find a place where I don’t answer to nobody
Where nobody tells me/ tells me what I’m s’posed to do
I’ve gotta find a place a place where it’s OK to me lonely
A place where I can be alone,..alone to lick my wounds

I’ve gotta find a nice quiet place
A place where I can hang around
Where nobody will cut me down
A place where I can right all my wrongs

I’ve gotta find a nice sturdy limb
One that’s gonna hold my weight
Strong enough to hold all this hate
That I’ve been bottling up for so long
Track Name: Box Of Junk
Yesterday I found a picture of you in a box of junk that I was going through
You were smiling but you looked a little sad
The sky was gray but then again that’s the kind of day we always had

On the back you wrote I hope this lasts forever dear I hope this never ends
Hope’s the only thing we ever had
But hope is just a waste of time when love is gone and everything turns black

I pressed that picture to my lips then I lit a match and put it to the flame
You were burning but you did not seem to care
The black smoke curled up to the ceiling and just like that you were no longer there

That box of junk was nothing but a box of demons here to torture me
Burning cross the floor and up the walls
Burning up what’s left of you and me finally setting my soul free
Track Name: Better Off This Way
I knew that this would end some day
The day would come you’d go away
I knew we wouldn’t last forever
But I thought we’d have more time

I knew that you would leave someday
But I wasn’t counting on today
I guess I never saw it coming
I guess love is really blind

I knew you’d find somebody new
Just didn’t know what I would do
Now that it’s over and it’s done
I hope the love you found is true

But you and I are not the same
We see the world through different eyes
I’ll love you longer than forever
But tonight’s the last night that I’m gonna cry...over you
Crying over you
What a thing to do
Crazy thing to do...

I knew that this would end some day
If I said don’t go would you stay
Odds are we’d crash and burn again
I guess we’re better off this way
Track Name: Down By The Edge Of The Water
Down by the edge of the water
That’s where I go to remember
We used to swim here in the summer
We used to skate here in the winter

Today the water’s smooth as glass
It’s shining like a big old mirror
Think of the time that has passed
I close my eyes and I can hear her

Is that her voice I hear singing
Singing to me from way down under
That pretty voice I remember
That pretty girl gone forever

Most times I don’t think about her
‘cept when I’m down here by the water
Sometimes I cry like a baby
Sometimes I curse her fucking memory

One night she left me forever
One night she left me all alone
That night she went into the water
That night she never made it home

We had a fight I remember
She slammed the door I should’ve stopped her
She took a ride with a stranger
And then we found her three days later
Track Name: Sittin Drinkin Thinkin
I was just sitting drinking and thinking
Thinking about the time when you were still mine
A long long time ago before you had to go
Before I lost my mind

I was just sitting drinking thinking
About how life has changed How life became so strange
How everything that was will never be again
How everything is gone

I was just sitting drinking and thinking
Thinking about your face remembering the place
The place we used to go where we could be alone
Back when we were in love

I was just sitting drinking and thinking
Thinking about your eyes the lies that they disquise
The secrets they concealed that never were revealed
The ones you kept from me

I was just sitting drinking and thinking
Thinking about your pleas down there on your knees
On our anniversary begging me for mercy
But mercy never came
Track Name: Something New
I walk through life with a bag of lies
I dole them out like candy on Halloween
I Take your hearts and I rob your smiles
I put them in a box and I keep them under lock and key
I’m not capable of giving anything that’s real
I’m not capable no I do not feel
Anything

I’ll say anything no matter what it takes
To get what I want then I’m moving on
My heart is cold like a den of snakes
You can’t recognize the Devil until he’s gone

I’m not capable of giving anything that’s real
I’m not capable no I do not feel
Anything

So hope that you don’t make the same mistake
And hope that you don’t let me come and take
And hope that you see through all my dirty little charms
And hope you walk away ‘fore your heart breaks
And hope that you don’t fall in love with me

I walk through life with my bag of lies
I’ve got one in here tailor made for you
I’ll make you feel like you’re something special
When all you are to me is something new
Track Name: You Made The Choice
Found with your arms folded cross your chest
Someone left you like that someone left you like that
For a long time now your life has been a mess
No one made it like that no one made it like that
You made the choice to dance with the devil on your own
Not saying it was wrong not saying it was wrong

You went out with a whimper not a bang
Not the way you would choose not the way you would choose
You always loved old Thunders when he sang
I was born just to lose I was born just to lose
You made the choice to dance with the devil on your own
Not saying it was wrong not saying it was wrong

But my friend you were mistaken when you thought you were alone
There’s plenty folks around still miss you now you’re gone

Long time ago you stepped off of the cliff
And you flew like a bird yeah you flew like a bird
Now people wonder why and say what if
They had listened and heard they had listened and heard
You made the choice to dance with the devil on your own
Not saying it was wrong
But I’m sorry that you’re gone

The people that were with you when you died
Wonder if they were friends wonder if they were friends
I hope that you had someone by your side
When you came to an end when you came to your end
You made the choice to dance with the devil on your own
And now you’re gone

So I’ll raise a glass won’t cry for you again
You would want it that way you would want it that way
Hope you finally found some peace my friend
We’ll meet again one of these days meet again one of these days
‘cause I made that choice to dance with the devil on my own
Track Name: Everything Is Grey
Once again it’s raining can barely see the road
Fell my energy draining feels like my heart might implode
Everything Is Grey
Everything is grey
All the colors in my life are gone

I think I hear you calling but it’s only the wind
Feel the temperature falling feel like a stranger in this skin
Everything Is Grey
Everything is grey
All the colors in my life are gone

I wanna feel the sun shining on my face
I wanna have a little fun I wanna get just one more little taste
But Everything Is Grey
Everything is grey
All the colors in my life are gone

I think I wanna run but I don’t know where
It feels like my lungs are filled with something heavier than air
Everything Is Grey
Everything is grey
All the colors in my life are gone

I think I wanna see you I think I wanna say
I think I wanna tell you that I’m happy you went away
Everything Is Grey
Everything is grey
All the colors in my life are gone

But you lie there still underneath that dirt
First you broke my will than you showed me how much love can hurt
Everything Is Grey
Everything is grey
All the colors in my life are gone

I’d like to wipe that smile off your boney face
I’d like to spit this bile that I’m forever damned to taste
Everything Is Grey
Everything is grey
All the colors in my life are gone

Still the rain keeps falling irrigates my sins
And my guilt keeps growing in the end the Devil always wins
Everything Is Grey
Everything is grey....
Track Name: The Owl
My hair is wet and sticky around the hole where the truth went in
And now my tears are blood
But now I finally remember what the owl told me that night
Everything....


He said Hey You/ I said who me?
he said I’m gonna show you every thing that you need to see
He said listen up kid listen to me
Just shut your mouth and listen I’m gonna set you free

He said you’ve spent your foolish days
Living in a dream world stumblin round in a drunken haze
But now I’m here to show you the way
When you need it you’ll remember all I’m telling you today

I said listen man I just wanna sleep
How the hell did I get out in these woods how the Hell did I get so deep
He flapped his wings and he spun his head
And when it came back round the other side this is what he said

He told me everything made it so clear
When I woke up in the morning I grabbed myself a beer
But I forgot all that he said
I learned the secrets of the universe from an owl on my head

All of them secrets where did they go
I went back out in the woods and I stumbled through the snow
But he was gone that bird had flown
Just a stupid drunkard sitting in the forest all alone

He said Hey you I said who me
He said put the barrel to your temple now you’re gonna count to three
Here comes the truth it’s yours for free
It was always right in front of you but you just couldn’t see

He winked his eye said here we go
Gonna tell you everything all you ever need to know
He flapped his wings and spun his head
And when it came back round I did exactly what the owl said
