Track Name: Little Urchin Doll
Something bout it sounds unromantic
The way that I didn’t get your name
Or maybe that’s exactly how you planned it
And that would mean there’s no one left to blame

Something bout that chip on your shoulder
The way you like to wear it on your sleeve
it must feel good but anybody older
will only find it harder to believe

CHORUS:
I can see the writing on the wall
Even if you've written it so small
In your unintelligible scrawl
Little urchin doll, no no no

something bout the way that you kissed me
the way that you bit down on my lips
and if you never care enough to miss me
you sure left something sticking in my ribs

Rough draft completed: 11/19/13
Track Name: Dawn of Man
I can't think of what it is it is I think I am (2x)
Dawning on me what it is it is I think I am
Dawning on me what it is it is the dawn of man
Dawn of man (4x)

I can't see through what it is it is I think I am (2x)
Dawning on me what it is it is I think I am
Dawning on me what it is it is the dawn of man
Dawn of man (4x)

I can't tell you what it is it is I think I am (2x)
Dawning on me what it is it is I think I am
Dawning on me what it is it is the dawn of man
Dawn of man (4x)
Track Name: Labor Day
Labor Day
G D G
Im sittin here waiting for labor day
C G
With my mind about a thousand miles away
C Em
contemplating all of the things I just cant say
G D G
I’m just sitting here waiting for labor day

I been thinking of it ever since july
When I came home to find my house was full of flies
And I kinda thought by now they’d all have died
I been thinking of it ever since july

Its like a plague is hanging over me
I can feel it as it kills me by degrees
Like a cat upon my chest while I’m asleep
Its like a plague is hanging over me

Im sittin here waiting for labor day
Bearing witness to my body’s slow decay
But somebody said it all will be ok
I’m just sitting here waiting for labor day

Track Name: Tonight I Hit the Bottle
You swore I was the only one that you would ever hold
and somewhere in my foolish heart I trusted what I was told
remember how you told me, how you swore that you'd be true?
well, tonight I hit the bottle when I should be hitting you

My heart feels like a bottle that's been shattered on the ground
and I'm empty as my drink is at the end of every round
so I think I need another, after that another few
because tonight I hit the bottle when I should be hitting you

Now papa was a good man and he always told me son
that you never hit a woman unless it turns her on
so alcohol's the only thing I ever could abuse
and tonight I hit the bottle when I should be hitting you
Track Name: Fiction
A
Give me fiction, darling
D
'Cause the truth is so alarming
Bm D
I can't help it if these feelings never fade

Everything you know is fleeting
Those teenage dreams were so misleading
And life, it takes us off in unexpected ways

Pre-Chorus
E D
So much for things that haven't happened yet
So much for the sentiment

Verse Guitar 1
A
I fall so easily in every way
D
And I die a little every day
Bm D
True love, oh, it's the whitest whale
For the drunken promises we make
And the sober hearts and bones we break
In balancing our tipping scales of love

Pre-Chorus
E D
So much for things that haven't happened yet
So much for the sentiment

Chorus
A
So give me fiction, darling
D
'Cause the truth is so alarming
Bmin D
I can't help it if these feelings never fade
Give me fiction, darling
'Cause your words are just disarming
I can't help if this will not go away

Verse 2
I tried to quit you like an addict
Just one more pull then I'll kick the habit
And it's always just more of the same
The same thing happens every time
Those blue eyes complicate our lives
Time passes, nothing changes

Pre-Chorus

Chorus
Track Name: Disingenue
You burst out screaming onto the scene wasn't that long ago
didn't take long before it started to show guess its all about who you know
you were so green or that's how it seemed to me at least
but your ambition was its own kind of beast
only waiting for the feast

CHORUS
I wish it wasn't true
if you only knew
You disingenue

I thought it was kind of odd you were signed by your first tour
its hard to believe that a demo like yours got your foot into the door
but no I don't mind you cutting in line in front of me
right to the place where you thought you should be
I'll act like I didn't see

CHORUS

Now don't get me wrong, I think that your song is kinda cute
that kind of thing I would never dispute with your video on mute
So I wish you luck, though I think you suck as you lay in the sun
pretending that I am the cynical one
after all the things you've done
Track Name: Xmas
Intro Riff:
(C D) Em (4x)

Verse 1:

Em C G
It was mid to late December and I hoped it wouldn't last
Am Em (C D )
I was feeling pretty haunted by the ghosts of Christmas past;
Em C G
I kept thinking bout your kisses and the presents that you brought
Am Em
And how this year I am all alone with what I haven't got

Intro Riff (2x)

Verse 2:

It was mid to late December, and I hoped for the new year;
You might say that I had get fed up with all this Christmas cheer
I kept thinking bout the way I'd been and reasons you would leave
And I knew that it was why I was alone on Christmas eve

CHORUS:
G B7
And the one thing I would ask for, I'd want if I got my way
Em C
Is just to have you back here by my side on Christmas day
Yea the one thing that I’d ask for, I'd want if I got my way
Is just that I don't wanna be alone on Christmas day

Intro Riff (4x)

Verse 3:

It was mid to late December and I hoped that it would end
I just couldn't stand the holidays without my special friend
They came back “return to sender”, all the Christmas cards I sent
Now I'm sitting here just wondering bout where you might have went
Track Name: Such
When I was a boy of five, I figured when I learned to drive, nothing'd keep me from this life
walking with my head held down on the streets of my hometown, nothing changed from then to now

its ordinary's all you say (3x)
its ordinary...

Because when I look back on the past I think how different I'd act but is that really such a fact?
because my own private history is really just a myth for me and I'm just who I used to be

There's this time I can recall, I thought I'd call her just to talk, admit that it was all my fault
but it didn't happen then and not a week has gone by since when I ain't thought of her again
Track Name: In Your Own
Finally found the heart to say, you ruined every part of me
its right there where you left it on display
and I don't even know what for, you're stranger to me anymore
are memories so easy to ignore?

When you're a legend in your own eyes
and your heart is beating two timed
yeah you're a legend in your own eyes
and your heart is beating two timed

Finally found the words to say, it felt just like you murdered me
I'm here to charge you in the third degree
but you're just waiting for some creep, who would sweep you off your feet
and lift the rug and sweep me underneath

CHORUS

Finally found the heart to say, you ruined every part of me
but I found out today you'd moved away
and never told me where you went I guess that shows how much I meant
I sit here trying to make sense but I can't
Track Name: Jackalyn
Jackalyn

Jackalyn, yea I wonder where you been
you vanished in thin air
on the floor no one knows you anymore
its like you were never there

Jackalyn, Jackalyn, Jackalyn
yea I wonder where you been
Jackalyn, Jackalyn, Jackalyn
yea I wonder where you been

Jackalyn, yea I wonder where you been
its been a year come spring
at the shows, I’m always looking for you though
I never hear a thing

Jackalyn, Jackalyn, Jackalyn
yea I wonder where you been
Jackalyn, Jackalyn, Jackalyn
yea I wonder where you been

where you been?
where you been?
where you been?

Jackalyn, Jackalyn, Jackalyn
yea I wonder where you been
Jackalyn, Jackalyn, Jackalyn
yea I wonder where you been

where you been?
where you been?
where you been?
