Track Name: Scruffy
You are a nerf herder
Who you calling scruffy looking?
Track Name: Coffee
The only thing that sounded good to him tonight
Was to go out and drink alone
To listen to some old bar songs
And stew for a while
He found the place that he was looking for
No one inside and no action by the door
And in the back room he was feeling good
When in walked a girl named mud

She sat next to him at the table
Small girl and a tad unstable
Buy me a drink she said
And you won't have to go home alone tonight
My heart's been broken and I'm looking for release
So tonight my lovin' will be strong
But it'll be a little brief
On any other day he would have jumped at the chance
But now his soul was in his glass

Please won't you hand me the phone
I need to call myself a cab
Oh please won't you hand me the phone
I need to call myself a cab
It's gettin' a little strange here for me
Track Name: Roll With You
I try to be careful with the things I say
I try to be easy and not to play
The games that other people do they drive me crazy
I try to be nice to the people I meet
I try to stay loving to the people that I've met
Sometimes this game of life is set for me
And I try to remember that when times get rough

Too much of our time is being spent
Trying to figure out if we'll be ok tomorrow
And meanwhile I make myself sick
Because I'm worn out and I don't have time
To take care of me
And it ain't selfish to want to be strong
But it's a battle that this country has made long
And I'm tired of working at a job where I'm no one
And have to come home with that thought to my love
'Cause it takes her time to break through
What every day does to me
And I know I'm not alone
Yeah I know I'm not alone

Fall came so quickly around me
That it made me see all the things in my life that were cloudy

All of my time is going someplace I can't trace
I'm sure as hell moving but not away from this place
So please lover take some time with me
I seem to be caught up in something that I can't be
I just want to leave it all behind and roll with you
Want to leave it all behind and roll with you
With you

Fall came so quickly around me
That it made me see all the things in my life that were cloudy
Saw myself being pulled in all different directions
By things that to my soul have no connection
And it made me miss you
Yeah it made me miss you

All of my time is going someplace I can't trace
I'm sure as hell moving but not away from this place
So please lover take some time with me
I seem to be caught up in something that I can't be
I just want to leave it all behind and roll with you
Want to leave it all behind and roll with you
With you
Track Name: Glasses
Sheets to the wind
I see three of them
Someone gave me a gift
But it's this way I see
And hopefully someday soon
I won't need my glasses

The masses I've seen
Only number small beans
Like dots from building tops
Scampering the parking lots
And hopefully someday soon
They won't need their glasses

Watching movements from afar
I see blind religious spar
Understanding worlds apart
And heresy is spoken art
The facts in books are all twisted
But still the facts are listed

Sifting through a beaten path is hell by the shovel
It brings out the madness and numbness in people
Sifting through a beaten path just see what you value less
But it doesn't compare to what is real

Speaking from your soul
Can inhibit your goals
Because we place what we see
In to prejudiced roles
And hopefully someday soon
You won't need your glasses

Preaching is the hardest route
To most you're just higher ground
Spray away the creeping fowl
It happened on your palace ground
The only wish for your soul
Is freedom beyond the wire

Electronic speaking gods
Whisper you and your sleeping dogs
The mountains only comfort you
Until you come to find
Sifting through a beaten path just see what you value less
But it doesn't compare to what is real
Track Name: Been Drinkin'
Think I'm going to get drunk tonight
Seems to be the way things are going in my life
Another round for the table on me
Seven or eight more and I might just let it be
That should give me the time that I need
To think up what I'm going to tell the waitress
When the bill meets my empty wallet
When that bill meets my empty wallet

Yeah
Be running for the door

Overdrawn and burned out and pissed off
I'm getting a little tired of spanging for change
I'd take things slower if I cared
Maybe I'd take things slower if I cared

But I don't
No I don't

In the movies you can do the dishes
Maybe sometimes that old trick might work
Not for me
Gotta stand up for that
When you got a guitar in your hand
The blues they can't seem honest
But when your hands are as empty as your pockets
There ain't no one to blame but yourself

Yeah
Been drinkin'
Been drinkin'
Track Name: Allie
My dog tried to eat the meter man today
She didn't mean no harm
Allie just wants to play

Hanging round the yard waiting for me to get home
And if you sneak into my house
Boy you'll know what hell's made of

Allie please don't you ever go away
Allie won't you stay till my dying day

One day driving down the road and up pops your head
On straydog street in a microbus
With the peanut butter blues

A long day's drive to the mountains to my home
And as I was moving through
I found a friend I could use

Allie please don't you ever go away
Allie won't you stay till my dying day
Track Name: Hop The Train
Walking by the river following tracks
On the way to town we're rolling back
Wish I had more time to make it last
When a thought came to my head about the past
Had something to do with a train
And a man I knew to be insane
Guess it's time again

Once upon a time me and a friend of mine
Spotted a train moving north
It's too late to go hopping in the fall
But he said to me "man someday
You and me gonna hop that train
You and me gonna hop that train"
Guess it's time again

It's a long way down from here
Better keep your eyes on the road
Road sign says there be falling rocks
Rounding round the corner I lost count
Seems like this every time no doubt
Down there in the valley was the train
By God he was hanging on tight
By God he was hanging on tight
Guess it's time again
Track Name: F.M.W.B.
It's getting late
Time to be getting on home
Too much time
Too much time being spent alone
Better leave this place
You've been at
'Cause you've found
You don't belong

Hard time
Hard time speak from your mind
Why you trying
Trying to let go
Beware
Beware

It's not hard to find the bottom
When you're not looking forward
Being alone only makes it harder
To trust yourself

Try to spend
Try to spend less time inside
Don't be afraid
Of your mind
Ask why
You are not coming to life

You've found what you need to leave behind
Things that hurt your heart and piece of mind

Leave these things before it's too late
Next time see them before they happen
Watch for fools who talk in riddles

All they want
Is for you
To follow them
Into their heads
So they tell you
Where you went wrong
Take themselves
A little higher

It's not hard to find the bottom
When you're not looking forward
Being alone only makes it harder
To trust yourself
