Track Name: Average Savage
lyrics:


Well he's not your average savage
I'm quite sure I can manage
but I'm at a disadvantage
and i know what a dangerous man is

Well it's fire running through his veins
Fire running through his main
Harder to stop than a speeding train
On the hunt again

And those disco lights go late into night
When the drinks aren't served and there might be fight
The tabs and cabs are gone... at least until the dawn

She's not your average savage
She's right there where the band is
Give a damn where her man is
As long as he's there when she's saddest

And it's just a little game she plays
Making up for the womans wage
Gotta do something in this day and age
and the hunt again

And those disco lights go late into night
She gets home late and it started a fight
and it rages on and on... at least until the dawn

He's not your average savage
He's old but he can manage
The girls still take his hand it's
Their pleasure to spend his cabbage

And it's Dracula no blood stains
Ex wives and everything
Blackin out all the grey
and he's on the hunt again

Those disco lights go late into night
When the bell bottoms suited him fine
and he knows those days are gone
He can't go until the dawn

He's not your average savage
Give a damn who the man is
Well he knows who tips the fattest
When he gets our glass of sadness

And it's lime lines and pickup lines
Casting calls but just at night
Casting calls all through the day
On the hunt again

And the disco light go late into night
When the tip jar's full with the dollars and dimes
and he's got himself a blonde... at least until the dawn.
Track Name: Peachy Keen
She says where’s my song Danny Boy I’ve been waiting here so long
and I can’t understand why you can’t just meet my demands
I said something bout the wind and rain. I’ve been sleeping late again
and the best laid of plans are I can do just to ruin
but if I’m a man of action, then your a girl who knows just what she’s doin

(Pardon me pardon me but I’m trapped here in my dreams
oh and all this time you’ve been oh so fine right next to me
I guess I’m just sleepy peachy keen)

She says you done wrong Danny Boy all I want is one
I said whats a rock when it’s thrown on top of a ton
There’s a million songs on beauty your song would be another one

(Pardon me pardon me but I’m trapped here in my dreams
oh and all this time you’ve been oh so fine right next to me
guess I’m just sleepy peachy keen)

She says you done wrong Danny Boy all I want is one
I said whats a rock when it’s thrown on top of a ton
There’s a million songs on beauty your song would be another one

(Pardon me pardon me but I’m trapped here in my dreams
oh and all this time you’ve been oh so fine right next to me
I guess I’m just sleepy peachy keen)

So this goes out to what's her name it changes all the time
I'm sure I'll recall when it goes well in a rhyme
There's a million songs on beauty but your song would be another one

(Pardon me pardon me but I’m trapped here in my dreams
oh and all this time you’ve been oh so fine right next to me)
guess I’m just sleepy peachy keen x3
Track Name: Even Good Love Hurts
Even good love hurts so you better decide…
What it’s worth-What it’s worth-What it’s worth to you
Even good love hurts so you better decide…
What it’s worth-What it’s worth-What it’s worth to you

Well I know you'll never cheat
I know you'd never leave
But I'm just missing me
And my love is like a bandit
Steal it and demand it
Burn down a money tree
Don't talk about finances
All the best romances
Had some inequity

Even good love hurts so you better decide…
What it’s worth-What it’s worth-What it’s worth to you
Even good love hurts so you better decide…
What it’s worth-What it’s worth-What it’s worth to you

Well I need a leg to stand
Diamonds in my hand
It don't take a shrink to recognize
The lovin that we feel
Is burning like a still
I don't want to nag or patronize
Don't tell me not to fret
I can make a bet
Baby if you want your liberties

Even good love hurts so you better decide…
What it’s worth-What it’s worth-What it’s worth to you
Even good love hurts so you better decide…
What it’s worth-What it’s worth-What it’s worth to you

Wha'd you think it would be easy
It aint trouble all the time
You could try harder to please me
I don't read minds and pantomime

Whatcha think maybe I'm crazy
Maybe I'm running out of line
I don't want to go to bed angry
Maybe we won't go to sleep tonight

Even good love hurts so you better decide…
What it’s worth-What it’s worth-What it’s worth to you
Even good love hurts so you better decide…
What it’s worth-What it’s worth-What it’s worth to you
Even good love hurts so you better decide…
What it’s worth-What it’s worth-What it’s worth to you
Even good love hurts so you better decide…
What it’s worth-What it’s worth-What it’s worth to you
Track Name: Sweet Relief
Something bout light and the heat and the gravity
Makes me want to feel the ocean all over me
Something about a man on the edge of a tragedy
Makes me think how dense the hollow of a man can be

When he's chewing on bullets with broken teeth
and he's waiting on the feeling of pains sweet release
Between a man and a woman love plays the thief
and it plays on both side till it's left their dreams

Try to tell a man he's got no integrity
Even if he's evil and all he tells is lies lies lies
and I don't think there is any remedy
Maybe it's best if you cut your ties

or you're chewing on bullets with broken teeth
and he's waiting on the feeling of pains sweet release
Between a man and a woman love plays the thief
it plays on both side till it's left their dreams

Something bout the line and the rhyme and the melody
It keeps my eyes on the road right in front of me
Maybe I'm just spinning here in infinity
Or looking for some complimentary energy

or I'm chewing on bullets with broken teeth
and I'm waiting on the feeling of pains sweet release
Between a man and a woman love plays the thief
it plays on both side till it's left their dreams
Track Name: Monsters
Well baby don't you worry
Cuz I eat monsters for you
Sweet tasty monsters just for you
and Baby what's the hurry
Cuz I'm swinging for the fences
Yes I'm swinging for the fences just for you

She says baby you're barnacles and your bullshit
but I love you something fierce you know I know it
and if you hurry up and ask me that
Well I can't wait for something we already have

Well I got life forever
but we love life together
Well I got life and somehow I'm free
and we love our Ventucky
and the streets all know you love me
and the Irish all say you're far too good for me

And baby you're cinnamon and Sriracha
Well I love you something fierce you know I gotcha
and if you hurry up and ask me that
Well I can't wait for something we already have

Baby don't you worry
Cuz I eat monsters for you
Sweet tasty monsters just for you
Track Name: Mirror
Every day in the mirror
Look at myself one day older
Start to see yesterday in my eyes
Man but a lot of yesterdays have gone by
Think about my time on the planet
Comb my hair that I take for granted
Some day you and I will expire
Love me then like you love me now guess I’m preaching to the choir



Some day baby well we’ll get old
That decade’s short but it’s mighty cold
We both knowI’ll be the first to go
But your too cool... to let it show)



Don’t waste a moment be here now
I won’t ask when if you don’t ask me how
No ones got the answers anyhow
Time is a fighter who won’t bow... down
Think about how much i love you
If we’re going to go gray with you I’d love to
Some day you and I will expire
love the lines and let em bleed love me like the cure for the lifelong need
Some day baby we’re gonn get get old
That decade’s short but it’s mighty cold
Some day babe I’ll be the first to go
Track Name: Change is Blowing Bitter
Can’t take a minute to think
I can’t stop to have a drink
I can’t lie in bed like the promise you said
that you would not could not keep
I can’t stop to think about you cuz you know when one makes two
my heart beats slow just to let me know that I’m addicted to you


(the wind drove the clouds and clouds brought the rain
and the weather beats me down once again
The wind drove the clouds and clouds brought the rain
so up goes my collar cuz change is blowin bitter in the wind again)
better not go to drink, getting skinnier than you think
and I’m working too hard at my dead end job yes I am tortured by my dreams
Pardon if i think of you in a way i knows not true
but this lease is a leash and baby we’ll cease and we both know that it’s true

(Chorus)
(solo over transition and chorus but the next verse starts right on the G)

If I took a minute think I’d know we’re on the brink
You’d say you’re sad, yes I know it’s bad, and one of us would have to leave
baby won’t you please come home don’t leave your man all alone
you say that you stray but maybe someday I can have you for my own


({the wind drove the clouds and clouds brought the rain
and the rain washed our love away)
