Track Name: 64 Crayons
I got 64 crayons in my pocket
I got a heart shaped locket,
got a heart shaped locket,
but it's empty

I got a question mark
and a paper bag
I'm gonna take a drag, take a drag
but it's empty

HEY

I got a sunburned face
and a change of cloths
I got a bloody nose, got a bloody nose
but I don't care

I got a new perspective,
seein clearer
but I still get chills
when I look in the mirror

HEY

If you wanna keep your wallet open
you better keep your mouth shut
and if you wanna keep your trousers open
you better keep your god-damn mouth
shut

well if I were you I would look around
on the edge of town
on the edge of town
cause it's empty

yes if I were you I would look around
on the edge of town
on the edge of town
cause it's empty

I got a hand of cards and it's all for shit
and this can't be it
no this can't be it
cause it's empty

I got a hand of cards and a shakin fit
and this can't be it
no this can't be it
cause it's empty

HEY

If you wanna keep your wallet open
you better keep your mouth shut
and if you wanna keep your nostrils open
you better keep your god-damn mouth
shut
Track Name: Transatlantic Shuffle
your goodbye
led me to realize
that all my compromise
had been for naught

cross the sea
see what it means to me
I've been fishing for honesty
and look what I caught

I'm as free
as a bird with a broken wing
so I sat down and learned to sing
so I sat down and learned

I can't fly
so I dream of the open sky
never been there but I can try
never been there but I
can try
Track Name: SHORT TERM SILVER BULLETS
president obama: "short term silver bullets"

feelin thirsty, need some more
walk right down to the money store
get what i need to get my fix
drive straight into the river styx

with my SHORT TERM SILVER BULLETS

feelin twitchy, i need a gun
so i take out some money from the college fund
get what I need so I can feel safe

salesman tells me, "if i were you,
i wouldn't feel safe with a .22"
gotta be the king of where i roam
so i walk right out with a PREDATOR DRONE

STSB

neighbors braggin, got it made
talkin about how they just got payed
this invasion of the home
done with style with a PREDATOR DRONE

STSB

i got you on my list
got you on my list
got you
i got you
Track Name: Structures of Power
the expanding bureaucracy expands to meet the needs of bureaucracy
while the ghosts of democracy are quietly grinding the gears
there are people in desks looking at our checks and they won't go
'cause we're too slow, we're too slow we're too slow we're too slow

How come everything I do always turns out so wrong?
How come everything I do always turns out so wrong?
I would feel much better if you'd sing along
How come everything I do always turns out so wrong?

so I cut up my credit cards
yeah I cut up my credit cards
well I cut up my credit cards
and I threw them away

And my house got repossessed
and my car is such a mess
so I cut up my credit cards
and I threw them away

How come everything I do always turns out so wrong?
How come everything I do always turns out so wrong?
I would feel much better if you could sing along
How come everything I do always turns out so wrong?

why won't you make me better?
why don't you make me better?
why don't you make it better?
why don't you make it all better?
Track Name: Wings
the feel in the streets
is like big empty sheets
when your lover has gone

the smell of this town
is like cloths left around
you've forgotten to wash

so leave me behind
like a nasty deadline
and I'll try not to mind

but I want you to know
if you're leaving this town
I don't want you
to go

you said I had wings
such remarkable things
but I fear you were wrong

but don't you be sad
there's much fun to be had
in this big world alone

my feelings for you
are 2 years overdo
so they won't change a thing

so go on, take flight
I can deal with the spite
I will learn how to sing
