Track Name: Earplug Girl
This band is way too fucking loud. You saw me covering my ears. And then you gave me one of your earplugs. Thanks to you now I can hear. Because you gave me one of your earplugs. Once a year, I take a hearing test. I listen for the beeps. I hear the frequencies, and I close my eyes and I think about the time when that band was way too fucking loud. You saw me covering my ears. And then you gave me one of your earplugs. Thanks to you now I can hear. You gave me one of your earplugs. And then you gave me a really bad hug.
Track Name: Always Bet On Clark
I want to move to Reno, Nevada. I want to go to Shea's and play a show. And then to the casino. And then maybe we will hit it big. Or maybe we'll blow it. Yea, we'll probably blow it but that's just fine cuz we're having a good time. Cuz you know you can always bet on Clark to show you the way the city works at night. With the bright lights, and your hopes and your dreams will never come to life. Now we're with Sophia, and I tried to buy one beer but they gave me two, and I was really confused. And the roulette dealer yelled at me. So I said fuck it. And I threw it all down on black. I was wearing a WET hat. Don't you know you can always bet on Clark.
Track Name: Emergency
What's it like to get 8 hours? I don't know but I'm tired. I've only gotten 4 the past 3 days and now I feel like I'm dyin. This is an emergency. Please you got to help me. This is an emergency, yeh you got to help me tonight. I'm always down, I gotta get up. I saw 'Seven Psychopaths.' I started shakin in my sleep. I'm havin a panic attack.
Track Name: D Line to the Streamline
I'm trapped in Ballard. The bridge is up. There's now where to run to. And I'm out of luck. And I just wanna go home. But I don't want to be alone. So I took the D Line to the Streamline. The Wallflowers are on. I'm watching baseball with Blom. I'll play a game of pool and act like a fool. And I just want to go home but I don't want to be alone. So I'll take the D Line to the Sreamline. Now I'm closing out my tab, I have to walk home, I am sad. Blah Blah...the sorrow. I have work tomorrow. I'll plan ahead the next time. That's what I said the last time. Maybe the next time...
Track Name: Face The Music
I'm not gonna rescue the snakes. I'm gonna procrastinate. Everything in this world is a lie. I wanna celebrate before I die. Did I ever really have a chance? Maybe one time at a glance. Everything in this world is a lie. I wanna celebrate before I die. I'm not gonna do something great. I'm not gonna exaggerate. Everything in this world is a lie. I wanna celebrate before I die. Did I ever really have a chance? Maybe one time at a glance. Everything in this world is lie. I'm gonna celebrate before I die. I don't wanna face the music. I just wanna turn around and play some music.
Track Name: Tear Shaped Bruise
Well, I heard you got married. And I wasn't invited. I guess I'm not suprised the way that things went down. All my friends are gonna be there. I won't be sittin home crying. I got better things to do on the other side of town. Ronnie's playin a punk rock show. That's where I'm gonna go. Get on the whiskey train and dance the night away. Now I got a tear shaped bruise right over my heart from slammin in the pit while you were gettin married. I don't know how you threw that elbow if you were so far away. Now I got a tear shaped bruise right over my heart from you. We used to sing rock 'n' roll, you showed me your soul. Shining in your eyes, shining in the harmony. I thought I knew what I was doin. It was the road to ruin. No future for you and me.
Track Name: Dream Gig
I'm never gonna make it. And I'm never gonna fake it. I wasted all my life, and I'll never think twice. My only goal is to play with The Souls. I got nothing left to lose, I got insoles in my shoes. I'm an aging rocker just tryin to make it in this world. I won't let go. Give me something beautiful. Dream big and one day we'll get that dream gig. Keep on dreamin'...
