Track Name: Animal Urges
Well your folks think you're a mess now baby
Want them to know you're not the perfect lady
So you been sleeping in the daytime lately
all dressed in black
Want everyone to notice the tattoos and piercings and booze
and know that, you being bad is a fact

Wish you'd think of something to say
cause I don't have the courage
And I will try to resist
these animal urges
That I -
can't help feeling for you
And if somewhere down the line
we happen to discover
That we get along better, darling,
under the covers
Then -
guess that will be ok

And you should kill your little hipster friends
they'll only hold you down
And you could really improve my entourage
if you were hanging around
So the next time you're downtown
and you run across that beautiful sound
If you can't believe it's real, that's when you'll know
That you're rocking to some fucking Steel

Wish you'd think of something to say
cause I don't have the courage
And I will try to resist
these animal urges
That I -
can't help feeling for you
And if somewhere down the line
we happen to discover
That we get along better darling
under the covers
Then I -
guess that will be ok
Track Name: Tragic
You can count on people being out for themselves
Always chasing after whistles and bells
If you're surprised that I paid upfront
Sometimes I'm honest and it's not a stunt
If you've got, anything at all to wear on your sleeve
That ain't the kind of thing to make me leave

Like magic
There's not alot of talk to do
My life seems less tragic
When I'm doing what I want with you
A little less tragic

Been dealing with myself all week
Too much insane not enough mystique
Sure there's lots of things that I could do
But its, hard to know which of these thoughts are true
Just takes one thing to keep me in the hunt
One great night so I don't bear all the brunt

And you don't know how many things I've tried
I've even changed my name
Wake up every morning
I still feel
the
same

Like magic
There's not alot of talk to do
My life seems less tragic
When I'm doing what I want to you
A little less tragic

A little less tragic
Track Name: Feast Your Eyes
Turns out the reason we've been drinking all these years
Didn't have so much to do with all our peers
Did not believe them, I found out for myself
Now it seems denial would have been better for my health

Your baby heart is turning
Something hard and dark is growing there tonight

T.V. and diamonds, everything you need
If they don't work are we just a different breed
I can explain what's going on between our ears
Doesn't mean we can stop it
that shit would take years

When I'm down and out
Or when I'm happy
I'm still having doubts

Feast your eyes.
Track Name: My Drug
Hot looks
Just bring me down
It's gotta be genuine
You gotta be my friend
Cause I never
Win that kind of game

Trying to do something original here
Sit back there and watch
And let me know when it feels real
Cause I can fine tune
As long as you don't leave soon

Left you a message on your birthday
Didn't call me back
Here I was sitting there thinking
We were on the right track
And thinking about you is my drug
I can't get enough
People make this kind of thing look easy
But it sure is tough

Maybe
All the things
That were ever wrong are over
Are we really one step closer
It's hard to tell

That thing we've got planned, it can't come too soon
Can't wait to feel like I've got nothing better to do
I wrote this song for you
I've been practicing too

Didn't hold no hands
Didn't read no books
People ask me "how'd you do it man?"
Through brute force and good looks
Too concerned with being unique - you forget what is good
At the same time I probably can't like it if everybody says that I should

And I hope it won't bother you
If I ain't got much to say
I'm busy worrying about this feeling
Scared you'll take it away
Cause I've been wanting to hook up
Since we were fifteen
Don't want to go getting my hopes up
Cause sometimes the world is mean
But thinking about you is my drug
I can't get enough
People make this kind of thing look easy
But it sure is tough
Track Name: Longtime
There's a storm outside and this tornado might be taking us down
If this is it, my vote is we don't go out wearing frowns
No power or signal tonight, to distract from the sound
Of you and me, under these covers, working off a few pounds

While the rain beats down our door
And we wait for what's in store
I can make you feel alright and hope that it will be

That its gonna be a longtime...
Before they find us in here.

Glad I'm not alone in this cyclone, I ain't missing who I was with before
I'm really on, not worried whether anyone likes me anymore
Let's not waste this vibe outside, mother nature is throwing a fit
You and me should take advantage, both get all we can get

Cause we're stranded here together
We'll have to do something to stay alive
Trapped under walls knocked down from the weather
And I won't lie

Hope its gonna be a longtime...
Before they find us in here.
Track Name: Waste of Time
Go home mad cause I won't talk
But what I want to say would only scare and shock
Not myself when I'm with you
But we still go out and I feel cool
It's fun to make the other guys jealous
Least until my confidence fails us
The status quo you wear it well
I'm not surprised that you kiss and tell

The finer things I try to ignore
Their only reward is wanting more
Drunk every Friday night
To hide the fact that I'm filled with fright
Cause this song is all I've got
Where will I be if they don't like it alot
Take you out and wine and dine
You look good
But its a waste of my time

I'm just a guy who knows too much
In a world that my heart can't touch
Think about every night and day
And you know that I can't find a way
To improve my faulty design
When I want o be mean, not kind
Another charge in the ultimate crime
