Track Name: Basement Punx
there's not a thing you could say
that would force me to stay another day
on this futon in your basement
unthankful and unpaid
anyway i'm unaccustomed to the comfort
i would rush home from the unknown
for a chance to overstay my welcome

cheap beer tastes better warm
crack one open before the storm of disappointment
comes marching down the stairs
we're better off ill prepared
for what's to come
takes responsibility and son
i just can't see a future free of more such bumps down the road
so down we go

just give me another chance to
show the world what they can dance to
i could not see what all my leaning
against the wall would force my arm through
live the dream and stop the talking
wake from sleep not bought and bottled
find some peace just not full throttle
from a learned disease perceived as potholes

there's not a word i could say
that would change a single thing
except the way that i feel about
how life turned out so great
and i feel great
i feel great
i feel great
i feel great
Track Name: Trigger Warning
no space is safe
when you fabricate violence
and those you portray
are staunchly defiant
of your latest phase
its played without tact
its based in shame

you can't fix things by crying
please forgive us for trying

we live for the day
your record plays silence
this bed that i've made
it screams of asylum
and time does not change
as a matter of fact
it stays the same

you can't fix things by crying
please forgive us for trying

so if you dream of loyal fans
write a short LP with strong ballads
of how it is you're really not a man
oh the list goes on and on
and no we won't name guilty bands
we'll just refer as they or them
that's why we've got our finger
pressed tight against the modern trigger
Track Name: Bus Stops
wasting my time
waiting in line
pretend we're free
of ideas of luxury
but we're both frauds
for wanting so much more
than we ever could afford

life's just
bus stops and coffee shops
no smoking signs church parking lots
and no one save me
i just failed at authentic misery
i'm too lazy to be free
i just wait and watch what happens to me
and i never asked for any of this
i worked so hard for loneliness

there's a hole
6 feet deep
where my soul
will finally get some sleep
so for now
i just sit and watch tv
cause there's plenty of time to dream
Track Name: Happy Trails, Bozo
lost my will to laugh at
the stupid shit that
we used to talk about
during shows or on our way home in the van
like our last ditch attempt at staying whole

said goodbye to a very close
friend of mine too many times for
someone my age
but laughter turns to crying
at least that's what my grandma used to say

and there's a self-fulfilling prophecy
in people like you and me
who believe what they're told
cause it's easier than carrying the weight alone

maybe dave was wrong when he told me sean
shit will get so much worse before it gets better
cause maybe it's never coming back from this
maybe joey didn't have to die if we set aside our judgement
of what makes junkies leave the party before it even starts

cause what i'm saying sounds so much better with a guitar
but if we stop
then i'm not even sure what it is that i'm trying to get across

except we're in this together
except no one's ever really together they're floating apart
except we're in this together
except no one's ever really together they're floating apart
except we're in this together
except no one's ever really together they're floating apart
except we're in this together
except that we're never really together we're floating apart
