Track Name: The Drive Home
If it's not what you thought
Then get up, get out, and get over it

If if drops from your arms it will rot
Do not walk alone with it

And if it bites you in your sleep
And leaves you bleeding through the sheet
You can call me, melancholy

If it's not what you thought
Then get up, get out, and get over it

If it's lost on your love, you're forgotten
Do not make a home with it

But you can call me
Track Name: Credit Carpenters
Lend me your ears for a minute now
I swear I'm not trippin'
I've just got it figured out
They way you're tied down, so far
It's written in the books that you think make you
Who you are
Who you were

Credit Carpenters carving hearts of
Who you are
And who you were

It's not a think tank
It's a powerhouse
And the only time they think
Is when the power's out
The power's out

I wonder what becomes a piece of the machine
Phone doctor, talk to me I'll tell you everything
I wonder what becomes of you, and too of me
I wonder

It's not a think tank
It's a powerhouse
And the only time they think
Is when the power's out
I'm out

Who are you about?
Track Name: Sitting Ducks
Emotion, live again
In ebbing by your great tide
Alone again, I feel it
This lonely little feeling
Dancing at the bottom of my glass

Like sitting ducks in standing water
At high noon
All eyes watching
And it's no wonder now
That God is not responding

I'm losing all my sleep
To sleepy little sheep
Counting on me
They're counting on your kids to be

Like sitting ducks in standing water
At high noon
All eyes watching
And none are wondering
Why we are the way we are

Watching
They want to be able to say
They are the same as we are
Dancing

Sometimes I want to kill that side of myself
That hit the bottom in a dream and lived to tell
The devil in the window pane
Is shining through the blind blades
Look up and see
That "suddenly" has come

God, if there is one
Bless your soul,
If you have one
And if you don't...
Track Name: Wish
Are you ready baby?
Here it comes
You're a number now
And I never thought I'd count you out
Like this

You've got a million things on your side right now
Why can't I be one?
Do you really have to wonder why

I wish I'd been born a dog
A sleeping dog
Then you could let me lie
Let me do what I do best
'Cause it's a beautiful day
To waste away inside

Are you ready baby?
Here it is
You're sophisticated
Like a sweepstakes winner
Overnight millionaire missin' out on life
Your radio's broken and you're so outta touch
It must be hard to focus when you miss your friends so much
So many
Too few or too plenty
You're somewhere stuck in between
Sayin',"somebody's gotta be fucking with me
'Cause even if I tried, I couldn't swallow all that pride."
This is why

I wish I had been born a dog
A sleeping dog
Then you could let me lie
Let me do what I do best
'Cause it's a beautiful day
To waste away inside

Do you really have to wonder why?
Track Name: Next To You
Someone knocking on my door
Every hour on the hour, and more
Such a lonely life I'm floating through
I wanna get next to you

I'm gonna make you feel like
Your touch, your talk, is real life
I wanna live and stay high
Is that so much to ask?
I've gotta get you to realize
Your touch, your talk, is real life

Something moving in the distance
Every second of every minute
And I can't decide if I should end this
Sentence with a question mark
But my friend...
When are you gonna realize
I wanna get next to you

I'm gonna make you feel like
Your touch, your talk, is real life
I wanna live and stay high
Is that so much to ask?
I'm gonna make you to realize
Your touch, your talk, is real life

Someone knocking on my door
Every hour on the hour, and more
Track Name: Live Animals
"I'll be in and out," she said,
"So keep the car warm."
And she never came back

They dusted for her fingerprints
And all they found were flies' feet
Watching from the wall

Now I hear tell of stirring words
A sea of fingers
Flowing only one direction
To a man who knew the truth
And spoke only of accident

"She loved to make love to a gun.
She said it made her feel alive
To know the man on the other end
Could pull the trigger anytime."
Track Name: Payphone
It's not the money
Else I'd tell you all the more
I think about calling all the time
But the woman in the telephone
Don't speak to me
Like I need
...And she's running out of air

I don't have the money
But there's someone on the other side
Trying to come through
To come through

And she's running out of air

Yeah, she's wishing I were there
