Track Name: Hollywood Is Weird
the punks in the gutter are selling new drugs
the tranny in the wig store is looking for love
tourists get scared while their hunting for the stars
worried that their little girl has fallen this far
there is no glamour here
hollywood is weird
when you have no future here
hollywood is weird
Track Name: Travel Goes In Circles
childproof razors plastic
trailer park walls are padded
your trust is gone there’s no electric
feeling better since you broke it

you sold your soul on an open market
you sold your hope to a starving artist

another year in mirrors
shatters you when they’re near
it’s finally catching up, keep putting on the make-up
you look younger dressed in fear

she promised you a golden age
play your parts, play her game
by june she said but she never meant it
by june she said but you’d never get there

we’re killing time but the truth is it’s killing
we’re killing time but the truth is it’s killing
we’re killing time but the truth is it’s killing
we’re killing time but the truth is
it’s killing us
it’s killing us
Track Name: Rock Idle
i pour a glass of wine each night when i come home
press my fingers to the strings and strike a chord
kick off my shoes, kick out the nerves, kick up my heart
open my secret wounds and sew them into art
there's artifacts and broken dishes on the floor
lines on my face that crack a smile at lines i can't draw
kick off my shoes, kick out the nerves, kick up my heart
open in my secret wounds and sew them into art

i think of all the different lives that would have been
if i stayed another course to wind up where i am
if i took different beds or gave back more instead
either way's another means to an end so i
kick off my shoes, kick out the nerves, kick up my heart
open my secret wounds and sew them into art
Track Name: Burned & Bored
you never take the back roads home
you never take the front door to the living room
you never hold my hand when i’m scared at the mall
you never answer your phone

you never meant to do me no harm at all
you never meant to put the dress back on the stove
you never meant to walk all those blocks home alone
you never meant to end it like that

but i’m not the one you should call tonight
my words are backwards i’ve got nothing right
i’m not the one for you, not anymore
my days are over, burned and bored

no i’m not the one you should call tonight
my words are all backwards i’ve got nothing right
i’m not the one for you, not anymore
my days are over, burned and bored
burned and bored
burned and bored
burned and bored
Track Name: Where I've Been Has Faded
so i'm writing you again but these words won't sound the same
i went to see my favorite band now everything has changed
the ghosts still roam the halls but a new girl won my heart
there's a map up in her loft that shows me where i'm going

the city's just a patient on life support and pain pills
i don't think she's gonna make it cause where i've been has faded

so you'll run away again cause your songs don't sound the same
you said that i'm your only friend i guess all of that has changed
the ghosts still roam the halls while your coffee warms my heart
there's some maps up on your walls but you don't know where you're going

the city's just a patient on life support and pain pills
i don't think she's gonna make it cause where i've been has faded
the city's just a patient on life support and pain pills
i don't think she's gonna make it cause on that map she's fading
Track Name: On Richard's Guitar
you bought yourself a broken bike
and told yourself you got a deal
you told your mom you've built a life
but you''re staying here until you see her
you left the north so long ago
the snow it should've melted off your shoes
but you've got a memory haunting you
you know it's something you can't prove

and it makes you cold
it leaves you cold
it makes you cold
it leaves you cold

all those kids you called your friends
kept up with you until you left
back then you thought you were a team
but now you've gone and found new meaning

and they call you cold
cause you don't come home
but they call you cold
when you do go home
Track Name: Trying To Get Hurt
i moved next door but i kept the keys
sometimes i go to the wrong place
i panic when i don't find your
warm bodies waiting there for me
the more i sleep
the more complete
i find i feel
and watching tv
doesn't seem
so much a waste of time as

a way to slow
down my speeding brain
it never stops making lists of tasks to do today
i'm way too slow
for my speeding brain
i never stop trying to get hurt so i can fall down...

we made a plan to tour the world
but i no longer get out of bed
the age of reason is halfway gone
and there's still freedom for me
the more i sleep
the less i need
a dream to fill my days
and watching tv
fulfills my need
to numb myself so i can find

a way to slow
down my speeding brain
it never stops making lists of tasks to do today
i'm way too slow
for my speeding brain
Track Name: Fear Of Travel (Bonus Track)
childproof razors plastic
trailer park walls are padded
your trust is gone there’s no electric
feeling better since you broke it

you sold your soul on an open market
you sold your hope to a starving artist

another year in mirrors
shatters you when they’re near
it’s finally catching up, keep putting on the make-up
you look younger dressed in fear

she promised you a golden age
play your parts, play her game
by june she said but she never meant it
by june she said but you’d never get there

we’re killing time but the truth is it’s killing
we’re killing time but the truth is it’s killing
we’re killing time but the truth is it’s killing
we’re killing time but the truth is
it’s killing us
it’s killing us
Track Name: Forward (Japanese Bonus Track)
cold sweat
tired pulse
beating down this wooden floor
white dust
caught by the sun
seems to take another form

we’re rusting away in high places we call home
let up from the rain will we rise or bother at all
you are not alone, you are not alone here anymore
try to send me forward but try not to push me over

wet grass holiday
moving pictures, frosted hallways

we’re rusting away in high places we call home
let up from the rain will we rise or bother at all
you are not alone, you are not alone here anymore
try to send me forward but try not to push me over
Track Name: Fuck You Texas (Japanese Bonus Track)
two lonely weekends
she took out both nipple rings
and nothing else felt the same
it took just four weeks
she took off every nigger's name
the sunshine state ain't so great

the north is cold and grey
but its the steer that drove you away
you got in your car and caught cancer

the south is just as grey
but it's their fear that keeps them the same
you told your girlfriend to stay

it's time to get away
counting days to spain
none of the fifty are safe
and texas is to blame

so drunk and so weak and
i think it was thanksgiving
you said that i was what you were needing

two bottles of wine and
an abortion wins again
texas is to blame, we'll never change
