Track Name: V.E.G.A.S.
Come on everybody
Every gender and race
Cleaning up blood
Never leaving a trace
I met her backstage
in the hallway

Exotic cars
Themed bars
Handing out cards at the end of the block
Just a phone call
from a bathroom stall
Come on everybody
Get into place
Synchronize watches
Get our stories straight
She went crazy
Totally crazy

You cut it thin to win
In the city of sin
This is Las Vegas baby – this is Las Vegas
They say what happens in Vegas
Stays in Vegas
Well I think that I will just stay in Vegas
Welcome home, son.
Welcome home.

You cut it thin to win
In the city of sin
This is Las Vegas baby – this is Las Vegas
Track Name: Maybe If I Might
Your hair is longer now
It's the main thing that reminds me
I haven’t seen you in a while
Can you tell me why
Can you tell me why I always linger longer than I should?
On the long rides home
From who knows where?
I want to break the silence in the air
She slaps my hand away from the power switch
She says – we don’t need the radio
She says – we don’t need the radio
So many little choices that I've made in my life
Have brought me to this moment; have brought you to my side
So I wouldn't change, a single mistake
cause maybe if I might
Baby you wouldn't be with me tonight
This is pretty nice day for this time of the year
I think I'll suck it up and finally go outside
Did you get new glasses?
Is that still your favorite jacket?
Should I keep acting like I really give a damn?
On the long rides home
From who knows where?
I want to break the silence in the air
She slaps my hand away from the power switch
She says – we don’t need the radio
She says – we don’t need the radio
So many little choices that I've made in my life
Have brought me to this moment; have brought you to my side
So wouldn't I change, a single mistake
cause maybe if I might
Baby you wouldn't be with me tonight
Maybe if I might.
So many steps along the way
Have carried me here to be with you
Could it all go away?
Maybe if I...
So many little choices that I've made in my life
Have brought me to this moment; have brought you to my side
So I wouldn't change, a single mistake
cause maybe if I might
Baby you wouldn't be with me tonight
Track Name: Doll
You’re naked, and I’m falling
I always pretended that you cared
When you said it, you meant it
And I’ll make you oh so beautiful
You are my doll.
The water is cold as ice and I hope you’ll like it
I wash her hair and apply her make-up
I brush it straight and pull it back
I clip her nails and spin her around like a ballerina
The rock, the terrace, to the window
From the bedroom to the floor
Black horn rimmed
I'm standing above you
I’m skewed and invincible
Invisible behind these glasses
You are my doll. You are my doll. You are my doll. You are my doll. You. You.
I never want to get out of bed
Do her hair just to mess it up
The rock, the terrace, to the window
From the bedroom to the floor

I'm standing above you
Black horn rimmed
I’m skewed and invincible
Invisible behind these glasses
You're my ballerina.
I never want to get out of bed
Do her hair just to mess it up
Paint her nails just to take it off
Dress her up just to take her picture
The rock, the terrace, to the window
From the bedroom to the floor
Black horn rimmed
I'm standing above you
I’m skewed and invincible
Invisible behind these glasses
She's such a gorgeous, delicate creature
Track Name: The Crash
He was pushing through the night in the pouring rain
She was lying in the middle of the center lane

He had trouble everywhere he went
She was always trouble, everywhere she'd been

He was stuck in a dead end job
She had fucked everything in the whole damn town

He was running from his life in a west coast town
She was ready to flicker, flicker, fade away

Fade away
She used to say...
I'm not afraid of anyone
I'm not scared of what's to come
She used to say...before she faded away

He was flying down the highway at ninety five
She was praying and saying her last goodbyes

He was pounding coffee and rubbing his eyes
She was crying out sweet baby Jesus

and she watching her life pass before her eyes
a thousand nights, a thousand men, a wasted life, comes to an end
Track Name: Little Disasters
I cant wait for the lightening,
cause I know
the thunder follows
and it takes a rumble
to cover up these thoughts

down comes the rain
and my thoughts are drowned out
as my head hits the pillow
For one moment in time.
I will get some peace of mind.

Oh God I love the lightening
To cover up these thoughts
I need a little disaster

Oh God I love the lightening
So won't
you help
me get
get some peace of mind

Oh God, please send an earthquake
Cause I know the tidal wave follows
And it will take a tsunami to wash away these sins

Down comes the wave
and my sentiments they follow
For one moment in time.
I will get some peace of mind

Oh God I love the lightening
To cover up these thoughts
I need a little disaster
Track Name: That's It
She's always coming home too late
She smells of other men and gallons of Champagne
Somebody tell me why I stay
Those hands, those lips, those looks, that's it.

I'm leaving today
I'm getting out of this place
Don't try to tell me I should stay
I'm getting out of this place

Those hands, those lips, those looks, that's it.
I think I'll be staying out too late...tonight
Let's see how she deals with all the pain and wondering
That clock, that watch, tic toc, that's it

I'm leaving today
I'm getting out of this place
Don't try to tell me I should stay
I'm getting out of this place

That car, that bridge, that lake, that's it
I won't be coming home tonight
She won't be coming home tonight
She won't be coming home tonight
She won't be coming home tonight
She won't be coming home tonight
Track Name: You Can't Grow Out of Who You Are
I'm all wrapped up in a nightmare
She calls it a dream come true
She hopes, she prays, she thinks I'll change
But you can't grow out of who you are

So I keep wasting time, cause I can't say how I feel
So I keep wasting time, wasting time

She said she will wait for me, as long I need
but I don't need her, and I don't want her; and I can't tell her – cause it would kill her
to know.... how I feel

So I keep wasting time, cause I can't say, cause I can't say how I feel
So I keep wasting time, wasting time, wasting time

I screwed around a lot in college
I just always thought that I would change
I would wake up one day and I would say
I'm done with all these one night stands and after hours hook ups
I'll grow up and be a man

She hopes, she prays, she thinks I'll change
But you can't grow out of who you are
She hopes, she prays, she thinks I'll change
No, you can't grow out of who you are.

Cause I can't say how I feel
So I keep wasting time, waiting for her to heal.
Track Name: I Fell in Love with a Girl Named Rock N. Roll
I fell in love with a girl named Rock N. Roll.

I should have known that it was wrong
She used me, abused me
I always knew that she wouldn't love me back

That girl named Rock 'N' Roll.
I fell in love with a girl named Rock N. Roll.
Climb right in, grab on, she'll take your soul.
I fell in love with a girl named Rock N. Roll.

She got everything you want
She got everything you need
She got every little thing you could ever think to ask for

She'll make you want her
She'll make you walk away from everything you've worked for

She may be the Devil
But while she's screaming “Oh God”
She'll have you seeing stars
and you'll tell the real world to fuck off and die.

I fell in love with a girl named Rock N. Roll.
Track Name: Checking Out
I've been kicking around the idea of checking out.
How didn't you see this?
Got pills.
Got rope.
Got gasoline
How didn't you see this?
I've been kicking around the idea of checking out.
How didn't you see this?
Got a jacket.
Got a bullet.
Got a head of steam.
I am an animal
I am the end of days
I'm the judge, I'm the jury
I make plans , I make enemies
I turn friends, into memories
You're all coming with me

I've been kicking around the idea of checking out.
How didn't you see this?
Got pills.
Got rope.
Got gasoline
How didn't you see this?
I've been kicking around the idea of checking out.
How didn't you see this?
Got a jacket.
Got a bullet.
Got a head of steam.

I aim to satisfy
And I blaze a trail to truth
I'm the judge, I'm the jury
I make plans , I make enemies
I turn friends, into memories

I've been kicking around the idea of checking out.
How didn't you see this?
Got pills.
Got rope.
Got gasoline
How didn't you see this?
I've been kicking around the idea of checking out.
How didn't you see this?
Got a jacket.
Got a bullet.
Got a head of steam.

I’ve been kicking around the idea of checking out.
How didn't you see this?
Track Name: The Devil on Retainer (Not Sorry)
Not sorry about the way it started
I'm just sorry about the way it ended
She gots so many bills to pay
Well, I got a lot of needs today
Okay, I'm a skilled negotiator
So slick, got the devil on retainer
Not sorry about the way things started
I'm just sorry about the way it ended
You got your breakups
You got your getting out hand
Cutting lines on a brand new minivan
Ain't worried about the way it all started
I'm just a little worried about the way it all ended
You got every little thing that ever pissed me off a little bit
All wrapped up in a bow and sold in a handy little kit
Ain’t worried about the way it all started
I'm just a little worried about the way it all ended
