Track Name: Tropic of Whataburger ®
any thing to waste your time
any sin you call crime
any heart you can't break
any mind you can't take
any thought that makes you numb
any drug to make you dumb
any jab to make you feel
any punch to make you ill
Track Name: He Don't Deserve You
i should be happy
seeing you like this
there's something about us
i'll always miss

he treats you badly
i've seen it before
girl you need someone
you can always adore

i've seen this situation
one million times
one heart will take the leap
one's left behind

your lifetime of devotion
is such an endless notion
he don't deserve you anymore

i wish things were different
but time changes minds
your restless decisions
have made you blind

one perfect condition
has turned out all wrong
so don't worry girl
it won't be that long

i've seen this situation
one million times
one heart will take the leap
one's left behind

your lifetime of devotion
is such an endless notion
he don't deserve you anymore

he's got a way to keep you
underneath his thumb
Track Name: Peg (not the girl)
I’ve a got a lot riding on this game
His heels are flush and his hand is about the same
Fifteen for two, a skunk on Fourth Street
I’ll cut a jack if you swear you’re not a cheat

I’ll double run to be in your arms
At thirty-one I might bet the farm

Show me the cut card
You won’t catch me off guard

I won’t stay when you say, “GO!”

So count the pairs, the fruits of labor
Ragged Ann my thirteenth neighbor
No nineteen’s, no stems just all sticks
I know you’re lost but soon it’ll all click

I’ll double run to be in your arms
At thirty-one I might bet the farm

Show me the cut card
You won’t catch me off guard

I won’t stay when you say, “GO!”

I might be stuck inside this epic stink hole
You’re out of luck all I need is a go…

I’ll double run to be in your arms
At thirty-one I might bet the farm

I’m hauling some lumber
Twenty-nine’s my favorite number

I won’t stay when you say, “GO!”
Track Name: Skull Carpenters
you planted evidence
i looked the other way
when you were under oath
i told you what to say
you pleaded ignorance
an air tight alibi
maintain your innocence
don't let your mother cry

you can beat it, you lead them on
don't believe it, you bled them blonde

they'll try to shake you down
release your steady nerve
under the heated lamp
a poly-graphic verve

you call it crimes of passion
Track Name: Whiskey or God
Every time I stand, I fall
I’m outnumbered, I’ve counted
Memories still haunt my past
Can you tell I’m dying?

I can’t stand I’m crawling back to you

I can see the light ahead
There’s one behind me closing
Try to understand my side
I’m stuck inside this quicksand
Track Name: Pretty Girl In My Bed
pretty girl in my bed
is that what you said?
pretty girl on my mind
she's there all the time

i know you're thinking of me
cause i'm thinking of you
i know you're winking at me
cause i'm winking at you

why do you feel the need to pass me by?
i don't know why you let a good thing die
are you afraid your love's been hurt before?
or is there somebody who wants it more?

pretty girl near the end
can we still be friends?
pretty girl said goodbye
does she still wonder why?
Track Name: Girl Waiting For The 15
girl waiting for the bus
what's your name?
i've seen you around
when i'm running late

can you tell
that you make
my heart start to swell?

see you tomorrow on the...

i'm so curious
to know what you do
headphones and book
wearing nice perfume

can you tell
that you make
my heart start to swell?

see you tomorrow on the...

do you still live at home
with your mom and dad?
or do you have a husband
that makes you sad?

can you tell
that you make
my heart start to swell?

see you tomorrow
(transfer all over)
on the 15
Track Name: Royal Urban Siren
she's dedicated
and medicated
she's waiting for the sky to fall

she's having nights sweats
in a dry spell
she don't know if she'll leave at all

i know that everything is always greener
on the other side
and if you'd treat me meaner
you might not make out with another guy

royal urban siren
you've made a tyrants fool of me

she's suicidal
even though she's reborn
she's doing the twelve step two step now

she's mental mapping
at a roadside relapse
would you like to help her now?

royal urban siren
you've made a tyrants fool of me

with your sexy motor lisp
and rattlesnake tongue
girl you shake the sheets
until you get it done
Track Name: Flagship On Bethany
flagship on bethany
everyone's after me
static of south mountain
black canyon river fountain

i'm getting dizzy, getting dizzy spells
i'm getting busy, getting busy signals

my modern modesty
fulfill my destiny
aching to climb aboard
collecting my reward

i'm getting dizzy, getting dizzy spells
i'm getting busy, getting busy signals

is it too late to ask you to stay?
Track Name: QuikTrip® To Cigarette Chain
sometimes i don't know what to do or say
sometimes i look in the mirror the wrong way
the cars go speeding by, they're always in a rush
i don't why my girlfriend's sister makes me blush

i'll take the car pool lane
quiktrip® to cigarette chain
if it were up to me
i'd gladly set them free

forecast is calling for trouble at time out lounge
i never thought the man with the sign would watch me scrounge
strip mall and fancy cars, a pool in the back yard
dragging my feet in dry heat, an endless summer marred

i'll take the car pool lane
quiktrip® to cigarette chain
if it were up to me
i'd gladly set them free
