about

Tired Man

I’m sorry mom, but I can’t hold my head up today
Everyone knows a tired man
That’s what I am
A lonely tired man

Maybe I would sleep if I wasn’t so uncomfortable
Everyone knew a tired man
But where you lay could never understand
A lonely, tired man

On darker days when I awoke
Ended off on a bitter note
So i sat mind racing in my room
Trying to put two and two together for you and make sense

So much word I could not understand
But I read about a girl and a man
Who couldn’t stop

She always knew I could not keep my head
But no one knew hate like mine
It grew in time
Day by day it grew in time

So i sat mind racing with you
Sat mind racing across from you

Sat mind racing, talked to you
Sat mind racing, told you the truth

You told me what you like to do
I like that too

I Sat mind racing in my room
Hoping someday we’d be together soon
It makes sense








Laurie

Laurie’s got a pen in her hand
She’s trying to write a love letter that says what she meant most to them
Laurie stops at the station Inn
Laurie stops to buy her pen
She’s trying to write a love letter that says what she meant most to them

When the red jacket can’t decide
And you lie, and lie, and lie, and lie
Red
0oooo0oo00oooo

And I’ll leave my room!
When I can relax mom!
She ain’t coming back!
Laurie you had me strung up by my teeth!
Laurie you had me weak in the knees

When the red jacket can’t decide
You lie, and lie, and lie, and lie
Laurie looks over to her mother
She tries to be sober


Laurie Pt. 2

Friends don’t have to sing as loud when they’ve got Laurie’s who make them proud
How could I respect her now, when she’s with some boy who makes her proud?
How could I respect that now?

Rested

Don’t let her paint that bad of a picture in your head
When you come home, she drinks alone and you confess
When you left the garden, you left a mess

How about you stay up and write
Make like your hands on fire
Come to conclusions
Your best friend’s a liar
When he took your girl out to the beach
She said, “See you around”

I can find something to hate in every picture you take

Days where I felt accomplished
Came rarer then those days, when I felt unwanted
When he took your girl out to the beach, it didn’t matter
No, it just hurt so bad
She’ll never know, she’ll never know
She’ll never know my love
She’ll never know my love

Should I write a song about a shirt, about a garden, or a book?
How bout a girl?
About a girl

How bout the dreams inside my head, the one I rest my achin’ bed on
You tampered with, have you heard the way I sound?
I sound, I sound like the “middle aged man”
Who’s lived his average life, in his average house, with his average family and his temporary spouse

As dark as the chord, you left on my door
I opened
Find myself on way to no parade
No, No
I stayed inside and rested, rested, rested

Snow Day

Oh man bus driver
You’ve been a liar
There is no school or work today

The girl of my dreams
Stays off her knees
She’s a good girl, I know she always was

You stayed hopeful because
You knew I was, and I could not go on any other way

False hope I can’t depend on
This time, I can go on!
I’m stronger than that, but I know thats not true
Just not mentally, ya know

I’ll be here for years, you know that
I’ll be here three years, three years, three years

I don’t mean to be so literal, but I must litter my soul with hope
My obsessive personality seems to get the worst of me,
works out the worse for love
For love, you know that i’d do it all for love
For love, For love, For love

Oh man bus driver
You’ve been a liar
There is no school or work today

The girl of my dreams
Stays off her knees
She’s a good girl, I know she always was

You stayed hopeful because
You knew I was, and I could not go on any other way

It’s a snowy day
It’s a snow day


Trophy Roll Call

In due time, I’m never coming back around x2
Do you know three days away from the only?
Three days you rode along searching for lonely
Five hours and then you found me
Two times, When I come back around
In due time, I’m never coming back around

Thrugsy

I want a porcelain skin
On a face, or my chin
Something easier to say about that laughing
Something easier to say than just laughing

Seems to be
All that goes on down court
Is confidential or too hard to find

I can barely read a younger name on a tag
From a friend across the table

Different ways around, different ways to go down
Is there anybody else laughing?
Is there anybody else laughing, or just me?

Kathy I know,
Was it so hard to be yourself, in a room where no one else could identify with you?
To capture a thought, that made more sense than that would be impossible to forward in a message

Ladadadadadadada
In the lobby of a cheap hotel

Cold Wind

Hark, a shark, the boats are in the harbor
Another year old, where does he end up next?
Fifteen miles down the coast line

But nothing ever happened around here

I trip down the broken sidewalk of our town hall,
Where yellow light barely guides me past a crack in where I walk,
Fifteen miles down the coast line,
I lost my boat, and I lost some good friends too!

But nothing ever happened around here,
Cold wind you couldn’t feel

When I waltz left, you walk right,
Things used to go some way

When two see different light,
What sucks are differences

The day that either one of you has died,
Is a day I hope that I am not around,
Fear him! Trust in God
At least that’s what they’ll tell me,
So I can barely believe

The shout that comes out is not what you always hear,
Soon my hands will be around your waistline,
And we’ll dance in the night as a husband and wive should,
As soon as I fall asleep on,
Cold wind you couldn’t feel
