Track Name: Losers
Losers

I’ve said unto you
How much I am different
And fortunate sons
Never crash and burn

So take my advice
You are not perfect
Your policy is here
To deny

And hey oh we’re the losers
We always thought we’d win
And hey oh we’re the losers
You’re practicing your sin

So don’t look now
Here we come crashing
If you think we’ll fall in line
Wait and see

It’s so absurd
That you are so lacking
Of Strength, of grace, of course humility

And hey oh we’re the losers
We always thought we’d win
And hey oh we’re the losers
And soon you’ll feel our vim

Time is spinning the world is winning
And that will always make us be right

And hey oh we’re the losers
We always thought we’d win
And hey oh we’re the losers
And in the end we’ll win
Track Name: Dine With Me
Dine With Me
Dine with me
Some might say to dine with me
I’ll cook until you’re sober
Or at the very least you’re older

Make believe
There’s no time for make believe
I’ll ask you to stay over

And I won’t mine
When it’s over

Relax a bit
And know that I will never quite
Loving you forever

Dreaming big
This time I am seeing it
I’ve asked you to stay sober

And we can’t fall apart

I’m over this
I’m over all the things I see and now I know
I’m on my own
I’m over this
I’m over all the things I missed and now I see
That you’ve got a plan

And we won’t know

Dine with me
Darling you should dine with me
I’ll cook until you’re sober
Then it’s over
Track Name: Worldview
World View
Fall on to each other
It’s all we have in time
Cling on to a photograph
The one that gets you high

And we the people
Locked on your words
And not what you say
And we the people
Trust that things
Will never lead us astray

I can see the forest from the trees
There’s no need to clear
Pray to god he’s killing you
There’s always so much at stake

And I can tell you, that I’m not afraid
I’m not afraid of this
And I can tell you
The words have changed
The plan has changed

And oh our world is great
Know that all this world is great

We know that we have all this to understand

And I will tell you
That I’m not afraid
I’m no longer afraid and I will show you
The world hasn’t changed
The people remain

And I want live like your mother did
Track Name: Fake Apologies
Fake Apologies
I don’t mind
My babies on her way
And I ain’t ready

To pick your mind
Of all the words to say
But ain’t ready

And I hold myself
With all my words
At ease
And I clear my mind
From all the clouded disease
But I haven’t hit half the things you need
With fake apologies

So listen hard
Cause it’s hard for me to say
That I’m not ready

And through this funk
A clearing in the haze
And I’ll be ready

To hold myself
And all my things
At ease
And I clear my mind
From impending disease
But I haven’t hit half the things you need
With fake apologies
Track Name: Ordinary Life
Ordinary Life

If I happen to call you
At 3:30 this morning
Girl pick up the phone
I might have a clue

As the dust seems to travel
Down the road less taken
I might be a little drunk
In love you

Please don’t tell me baby
Please don’t tell me baby to forget it
Please don’t tell me baby
Please don’t tell me leave it alone

It’s a matter opinion
And I have a stance
It’s better to be with you
Than to be alone

So don’t shoot the messenger
He’s got good intentions
You'll just have to admit it’s better
Than being alone

Please don’t tell me baby
Please don’t tell me baby it’s an ordinary life

Don’t turn the lead into the headline

Please don’t tell me baby
Please don’t tell me baby it’s an ordinary life
Track Name: Turn Back To Me
Turn Back To Me
Let me count the ways
I’m leaving on with all these people
I don’t mind the days
But I don’t want to love nobody else

Apropo of none
I don’t want to lift this body
I don’t want to change
And I don’t want to love nobody else

Then I turn back to me

And I don’t mind the days
I’m living in all these people
I don’t mind the ways
I’ve got to learn to love somebody else

So babe unlock the door
You know that I can hear you breathing
I just want in
So I can lay inside your chest

But I turn back to me

Hold myself
Cause I want more
It will only be

It’s the end of days
We’re living in too many people
I don’t mind a change
I don’t want to love Somebody else

But I turn back to me

And I don’t want to know
That everything is perfect
And I don’t want to see
Everything is perfect inside of me

But I turn right back to me
Track Name: Make Up With You
Make Up With You
In the older days of a younger man
I always felt that I had a plan
To love you

And alas
My older days are gone again
And at last
I finally see around the bend

I know that lied
When I said that I tried enough for you

Alone for the day
There’s a lot I cannot say
I long to be with you and I
Gave gave chance
To all the things I thought romance
Were lethal

Alas
My lonely days lonely days are here again
And at last
I finally see around the bend

And I know that lied when said tried to make up with you
