1) Go With You
I’d like to know your reasons for staring right at me
But I’m probably just making stuff up now
If this is really happening than I must be looking weird
I once had a brother, did you know him?

I wanna go with you
I wanna go with you
But you don’t want
No, you don’t want me to

Woke up alone today, but I didn’t feel this sad
Until you called me I was feeling OK
Everyone tell me that I should relax
How could I do that when I feel this?

You told me to relax
Why didn’t you send my brain that fax

I know that I’m not sleeping and that I haven’t taken pills
But I still might be hallucinating now
These things they happen when I think I’m doing fine
Luckily I have a place to hide

 

2) Dead Man’s Car
Like a dead man’s car without wheels
Yeah, a dead man’s car, I bet you know how that feels
Used to be blue, but now it’s rusty
And everybody knows it can’t be trusted

You went through troubled times
But that car always stood by your side
Every night outside your house
The car was was patient and as quiet as a mouse

Like a dead man’s car in the ditch
The owner of the car was never rich
But I loved the car and I loved the man
When I get the money I’ll buy that van

Broken headlights and the seats are torn
The car was made before I was born
Take control of the steering wheel
I know just how hard it seems

 

3) Hell’s Hot
Hell’s hot and it’s got no shadow
Too dry for anything to grow
You’ll never find a drop of water
Yet we are Hell’s greatest supporters right now, right now

Hell’s hot and it’s got no
Oh-oh-oh
Hell’s hot and it’s got no
Oh-oh-oh
Hell’s hot and it’s got no
Oh-oh-oh
Shadow, shadow, oh Lord

I believe we’re already there
People actin’ stupid like they just don’t care
Maybe that’s why we’re fucking it up
We all know we’re in the devil’s cup right now, right now

Hell’s hot and it’s got no shadow
It’s where we live & it’s all we know
To late to change & to late to cry
Truth is it’s even too late to die right now, right now

 

4) That Day
Call the ambulance and call the cops
It won’t ever make me stop
I’m not the guy who’s gonna give it up
When trouble hits me I’ll fight back

Met you in a smoky crowded bar
You acted like you were a star
You told me later you were missing dad
Acting cool while feeling sad

But that day you should have called me right away
That day, I still don’t know what to say
Yeah, that day
I can’t hide my sorrow
Will you be here tomorrow
Or are you walking away?

That day’s been in my past for quite a while
Ever since that day she’s been in my life
But now I’m really scared of losing her
The blues controls my mind

 

5) Yesterday’s Rain
My shoes are still wet from yesterday’s rain
But I kinda like it, does that mean I’m insane
Don’t wanna see my sister cry
And I need to know the reason why
Why
My shoes are still wet from yesterday’s rain

Get out
Move on
I’ll see you then
Go on
Away from him

It’s not an option to stay where you are
You’re being treated much worse than his car
Don’t wanna see my sister cry
And I need to know the reason why
Why
You think it’s an option to stay where you are

 

6) Hope She Knows
Woke up today with a brand new family
That’s not something I need right now
I never pictured myself as his only son anyway
Today

Even though we’re all brothers and sisters
On this planet we all live and breathe
I can see why you’re sad and I know that it hurts you so
Today

You’re still my only sister
I know you really need to know
I try to say how much I’ve missed her
I hope she knows
I hope she knows

We got off to a bad start, didn’t we
But this new year’s gonna turn out fine
Nothing will change, everything will be the same again
I say

 

7) This Music
I’m alone in this tiny cell
Pop music or satanic hell
What would choose, what would you do
If you were alone like me
If you were alone like me

Behind bars, what can I do
You know, I’d rather be at home with you
I did the crime, but I can’t do the time
I won’t dance to this jailhouse song
I won’t dance to this jailhouse song

I can’t help it nor can you
These song pop out of my head and send me out on tour
I can’t help it nor can you
These songs go la-la-la…

All alone in this crowded van
Not supposed to feel alone in a band
What can I do, what can I say
I wish they were alone like me
I wish they were alone like me

This music
Coming to me
Wanna know why
I do

 

8) Sliding Bar
I’ve got news for you, you gotta be true
If you hurt me again or treat me cruel
I’m gonna beat you down or make you drown
I swear you’ll never make a sound

But then I hear that steel guitar
I feel haunted by the sliding bar
I can’t understand why it seems like we are falling apart
No, I can’t understand why you’re the one who’s breaking my heart

I’ve got news for you, I was never true
I just don’t care, do what you wanna do
I’ve got my life and you’ve got your’s
I still got the hotel with 7 doors

I’ve got news for you, you gotta be true
If you hurt me again or treat me cruel
Gonna beat you down or make you drown
You know you’ll never make a sound again

 

9) Gone Again
I bought Brautigan’s book
Don’t know if I ever got to read it
At least it wrote you that song
I still don’t know what made you go

I need to know why you left
Was it the pills or just the loneliness
I miss your shaky voice
And I wanna know, where did you go

Gone again
You were gone again
Gone again
I was still your friend
Gone again
You were gone again
I just wish that you were born again

I used to be insane
Haven’t changed, but now I’m feeling all right
Sometimes when I’m alone
I pray that you’ll be coming home

 

10) Borderline
I’ve spent my life on borderlines
I was always afraid to fall behind
Now you know what it takes
To make me swim in those salty lakes
Now you know what you shouldn’t do

This is the night to leave your life behind
Being poor is just a state of mind
I’ve been there, but I got back
Train wreck on a one-way track
Now’ I’m tellin’ you what you shouldn’t do

There will come a time when we have nothing left to hide
And nothing left to say to our own brothers
There will come a time
And when that time is here
I’ll still be, still be
Standing on this borderline

I’ve spent my life on borderlines
I am always afraid to fall behind
I know you know what it takes
To make me swim in those salty lakes
Now you know what you shouldn’t do

 

11) My Back To The Future
I’m turning my back to the future
While I’m keeping an eye out for you
I’m turning my back to the future
‘Cause tomorrow ends
Yeah, tomorrow ends tonight

Who will win the human race today
The ones who lose will be put away
In some dark hole where no one can stay sane
The others win
Yeah, they always do
The others win

We don’t care if we are left behind
You and me we’ll play the same old dives
The places where the old songs go to die
The others win
Yeah, they always do
The others win

On our own
We try to hide
From our past, but I am scared of now

 

12) 225 Parsons Street
225 Parsons Street, that’s where I was born
225 Parsons Street, just after the 2nd World War
My mama died when she was young
And my daddy he went away
Still Parsons Street’s my home in Michigan

Oh, those lonely winters
The long, short days are slowly killing me
Oh, the lonely winters
Still I don’t wanna move to Tennessee

225 Parsons Street, I think I’m cracking up
225 Parsons Street, I know I’ve had enough
I’m dead, but somehow living
And I don’t pay no rent
Still Parsons Street’s my home in Michigan

225 Parsons Street is far from Oslo town
225 Parsons Street, but I guess they liked my sound
I just can’t stand this weather
Winter’s too cold and dry
Kalamazoo, Michigan is where I wanna fly
