Track Name: Out Back By the Railroad Tracks
Park the car on railroad tracks
waiting for the train to come along.
Hope that I'm not waiting long.

Standing on the tallest tower
waiting for the wind to take me home.
Hope that I'm not waiting long.
Track Name: The Teeth of the Ocean
Why does my heart hurt so bad when my brain starts a'thinkin of you?
Why do my eyes get so sad? I get cold and my teeth chatter too.
My lungs, they find it so hard to breathe when my body needs rest.
I see you in all of my scars and they wont ever let me forget.

Well, you know how things seem to go these days;
It's complicated. They come in waves.
And the waves they might bite on a dark and cold night
or I might just get washed up ashore,
and my heart wouldn't hurt anymore.

Why does my back hurt so much when my hands are a'workin so hard?
My fingers are rough to the touch and my feet fail to get my too far.
I toss as I turn on the night, and the full moon is calling me out.
I see you in all of the stars and I know what you're all about.

Well, you know how things seem to go these days;
It's complicated. They come in waves.
And the waves they might bite on a dark and cold night
or I might just get washed up ashore,
and my back wouldn't hurt anymore.
Track Name: I Got My Grip On You
I wont let go till my fingers explode.
Hold just as long as my knuckles will hold.
Hope that my bones do not buckle from the load.
Hope that my blood lasts in buckets by the load.
I wont let go till my fingers explode.

I got my grip on you.
There's nothing you can do 'cause it wont slip or move.
I got my grip on you.

I wont relax till my muscles collapse,
Stretch to the max and they're pulled till they snap.
Blood's pumping fast but I'll grip till the last.
I know that you'll never slip from my grasp.
I wont relax till my muscles collapse.
Track Name: Motherless Child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
a long way from home.

Sometimes I feel like I'm already gone
a long way from home.

Sometimes I feel like I've never been born
a long way from home.
Track Name: Fighter
I'm not a fighter but I'll fight for you,
Do anything to prove my love is true.
There's not a thing for you I would not do.
I'm not a fighter but I'll fight for you
because I know you doubt my love for you.
Track Name: Do What I Mean
It's true I've missed you, honey, since you walked out my door,
but I'm too bitter to beg you for more.
For anything I want from you, I will not ask for you to do.
My words will never make you stay,
Do what I mean, not as I say.

It's true I got no lover since you left me alone,
but I'm too stubborn to pick up the phone.
For anything I wish from you, I cannot call on you to do.
Talkin wont take my troubles away,
Do what I mean, not as I say.

It's true I really hate it that you found a new man,
but I'm too jealous to talk you down.
For anything I need from you, I cant demand for you to do.
My voice wont bring you home today,
Do what I mean, not as I say.
Track Name: How to Undress In Front of Your Husband
Dont want no ring.
Dont want no wife.
I'll never get married for my whole life.

She's the one that I want.
She's the one that I love.
She's the one but she's running with you.
Track Name: When the Sun Goes Down Tonight
When the sun goes tonight
I will cry my tears.

Honey, dont cry now.
Hide your tears.
My train is coming in the morning.

I wish I was dead and gone,
underneath the ground.

When the sun goes down tonight
I will cry my tears.
Track Name: A Dark, Dark Place
I feel like an idiot.
Everything aches.
The devil is here but he's covered his face.
I can't pick him out but I guess them's the breaks.
I'm in a dark, dark, place.

I must be moronic.
I lost all at stake.
They're coming to get me.
Yeah, they're on their way.
I cannot believe I could make these mistakes.
I'm in a dark, dark place.

My head is so dumb with the spins and the shakes.
I'm wishin I knew that you can't cheat an ace.
Things were on high but then I hit the brakes.
I'm in a dark, dark place.

I know I'm a fool for taking a taste.
Didn't know they were spying on me through the drapes.
I played with a heart I knew easily breaks.
I'm in a dark, dark place.
Track Name: Why You Such a Pill
You know I love you, baby,
and that I always will.
And if you leave me, baby,
you know I'll love you still.
Tell me girl, why you such a pill?

You know I'll love you, woman,
until I've had my fill.
I'll follow you forever,
you're that much of a thrill.
Tell me girl, why you such a pill?
