Track Name: Everybody Wants Somethin'
everybody wants somethin
this i know for sure
everybody wants somethin
i just want a little more
i dont do it for the fame, no
and i dont do it for the kids
and i dont do it for the money
cause you know i aint gettin paid shit
get in the van i'll take you there
to the roads that i declare my own
my home is between point a and b
no days off and no sick pay
hungover but im on my way
gotta get the guarantee so i can eat

everybody's feelin somethin
and everyone's had their heart broke
and in a world of 7 billion
you'll sometimes still feel all alone
you and can blame it on your sign, doll,
now can't you?
or your god who's so divine
i dont believe in much of nothin
you take the stars i'll take real life
i'll be home on tuesday night
tonight im up here on stage right
a bottle and a mic up in my face
dont get me wrong im having fun
this is me, old, or young
i cant escape, i cant escape i'm free

keep up
slow down
take it back
say what you want
keep up
slow down
take it back
just dont give up

everybody wants somethin
this i know for sure
everybody wants somethin
i just want a little more
everybody wants somethin
this i know for sure
everybody wants somethin
i just want a little more
Track Name: The Bottom Line
when you've been down and out i've been there
we both know more than a few times
every time that you've fucked up i've kept you
held you in them arms of mine

but i'm worried this time
and i guess that's the bottom line
and i'm drinkin all the wine down here tryin to forgive you

i put aside the time's you've crossed me
and blamed it on your bitter heart
i'm startin to wonder if its worth it
second chances and new starts

but i'm worried this time
and i guess that's the bottom line
and i'm drinkin all the wine down here tryin to forgive you
Track Name: Always Lose
i once had this fan boy, praise me day and night
till the day i signed that deal, sold out and ruined his life
the fan boy he turned stalker, man, i guess he thought he had the right

he found me called me pussy, so i hit him in the jaw
the fucker couldn't fight back, no he just called the law
i showed up in the court room and said who's the pussy now?

i'm a lover not a fighter but i wont take no shit lying down
from the hotel to the jail cell

how's it feel to always lose?
you'll never write a song like this
jeaulosy a funny fuckin thing
but this shit's that we got goin here's redic. ulous. it is

i once knew an older man i called a friend of mine
helped him out of trouble he was addicted to the lines
he stayed up on my couch for months, i held him while he cried

his life was goin nowhere so i bought him a guitar
put him up on stages, he was treated like star
things were going well until he bit this hand that fed

i left him where i found him, let's just assume he wound up dead
from the hotel to the jail cell

how's it feel to always lose?
and lose a loyal friend like this?
jeaulosy's a funny fuckin thing
but this shit we got here's redic. ulous. it is

onece i knew a girl i didn't know at all
in fact we'd never met, but i heard she knew all my songs
she heard i was a douche bag from some friends of hers back home

she showed up at the venue where i was goin to play
she hung out by the parking lot, the club still made her pay
and cops they caught her sprayin my van, w/ a can of silver paint

i said no man, just let her go, it's the haters that fuel this fame
from the hotel to the jail cell

how's it feel to always lose?
you'll never ride a man like this
jealousy's a funny fuckin thing
but this shit we got here's redic. ulous. it is


how's it feel to always lose?
you'll never write a song like this
jealousy's a funny fuckin thing
but this shit we got here's redic. ulous. it is
Track Name: Herpes Of The Heart
maybe this august heat has got to me
but im ready more than ever to dissolve this thing
if i change lovers like i chance my jeans
this pairs worn out and split in all the seams
comfortable or miserable dont hold back just say it say it
is it worth the time it took
darlin i cant fake it anymore
i think it really could have happened this time
baby ima have to decline
hang up the phone come over i'll explain it
im going to go away for a while
50,000 nautical miles. to find a place where i can feel
anonymous again
i was lookin just to play dirty
you were lookin for a diamond ring
doesnt have to be a tragedy
i hope you forgive me so i can forget you
i was lookin' just to play dirty
you were lookin' for a diamond ring
doesn't have to be a tragedy
it doesn't have to be
good enough is hardly good at all
you said it yourself
and starting all again seems miserable
cause love is wealth
and all those drugs we took to feel young and adored
you fooled em all if that was what you were goin for
comfortable or miserable dont hold back just say it say it
is it worth the time it took
darlin i cant fake it anymore
i think it really could have happened this time
baby ima have to decline
hang up the phone come over i'll explain it
im going to go away for a while
50,000 nautical miles. to find a place where i can feel
anonymous again
i was lookin just to play dirty
you were lookin for a diamond ring
doesnt have to be a tragedy
i hope you forgive me so i can forget you
i was lookin' just to play dirty
you were lookin' for a diamond ring
doesn't have to be a tragedy
it doesn't have to be

i was lookin just to
(you were lookin for)
i was lookin just to
(you were lookin for)
i was lookin just to
(you were lookin for)
i was lookin just to
(you were lookin for)
i was lookin just to
(you were lookin for)
i was lookin just to
(you were lookin for)
i was lookin just to
(you were lookin for)
i was lookin just to
you were lookin for

i was lookin just to play dirty
you were lookin for a diamond ring
doesnt have to be a tragedy
i hope you forgive me so i can forget you
i was lookin' just to play dirty
you were lookin' for a diamond ring
doesn't have to be a tragedy
it doesn't have to be

maybe this august heat has got to me
but im ready more than ever to dissolve this thing
if i change lovers like i chance my jeans
this pairs worn out and split in all the seams
somethin had to give eventually
Track Name: Recession Proof
they say that nasdaq's fallin on tv
and i don't really know what that even means
all i knows we've been broke for some years
and if the rich folks go broke too now i doubt i'll shed a tear
a man who aint got nothin, aint got nothing to loose
just me and you, recession proof


remeber all them summers on the lawn
tryin to get that old mustang to run
wish life was as simple as it was
but as long as were still breathin air damn right we'll have our fun
we're are all we got and we know that that's the truth
just you and me, recession proof


you could say that we're the simple type
pickin, singin, drinkin in central standard time
these things have stayed the same most of our lives
and if that factory don't close downtown
i'm so tired of this graveyard shift i'd gladly burn it down
a man who aint got nothin, aint got nothing to loose
just me and you, recession proof

all you got is me, and all i want is you
just me and you recession proof
just me and you recession proof
just me and you recession proof
