Track Name: Anthem to East
Newspapers fly,
Bye bye bye,
By the old bus stations the
Young children cry,

Her name was Rita East,
And though she paid the lease,
It was time for her to leave for Baltimore

8 o'clock comes way too soon,
Time to stop and think of you,
Minutes start to slip away,
Soon she will be on her
way,

Highway calls her name,
No more shame,
The clouds fog up the window panes

Leaving this town behind,
Rumors and lies,
Rita's life will begin again
in Baltimore

8 o'clock comes way too soon,
Time to stop and think of you,
Minutes start to slip away,
Soon she will be on her way,

Pack your bags, it is done,
She goes with the setting sun,
Nighttime falls and there is rain,
Now we have to bear the
pain.

8 o'clock comes way too soon,
Time to stop and think of you,
Minutes start to slip away,
Soon she will be on her way,

Pack your bags, it is done,
She goes with the setting sun,
Nighttime falls and there is rain,
Now we have to bear the
pain.
Track Name: All Time Favorite Chick
I wake up,
Get outa bed,
Eat a sandwich,
Scratch my head at all the problems that you've said to me
I walk out,
I scream and shout
Get so tired I want to pout,
At the things you talk about

You remain a mystery to me,
So let me free,

I get mad,
Slam the door,
Forget what we've been fighting for,
And what you said screwed me up,
Why won't you ever just shut up?

Take the bus,
Start to fuss,
Start to stomp around and cuss
and all the rules that you impose
that nobody ever knows

You remain a mystery to me,
So can't you see,
You're all I need,
Even though you drive me mad,
You're the best thing I've ever had
Track Name: Rose Petal eyes
I'm so sorry Jennifer,
I was too late, too late, too late.
I called her up yesterday,
On the telephone

I wrote this song just for you,
But now I don't know who to send it to,
Without you by my side,
Anymore.

Rose petal eyes,
Tears on those rose petal eyes
Rose petal eyes,
Tears on those rose petal eyes
Marigold lips,
Colored and died.

Don't ever talk to me again,
As I could never truly be your friend,
I told you I'd find someone,
you could talk to.

Now that I've come and gone,
Did we really ever get along,
You hurt me in many ways,
I didn't want you to.

Rose petal eyes,
Tears on those rose petal eyes
Rose petal eyes,
Tears on those rose petal eyes
Marigold lips,
Covered in lies.

Rose petal eyes,
Tears on those rose petal eyes
Rose petal eyes,
Tears on those rose petal eyes
Marigold lips,
Covered in lies.

Marigold lips,
Rose petal eyes
Track Name: Your Metaphorical Week
When Mondays gone away and you got no more time to play with,
Maybe you should just sit around and sing.
When Tuesday's passed you by, and you just feel like dying, or crying.
Listen to me.

Cause men like these don't know how to hide
the giants on the mountain side. It's reasonable to see.

When Wednesdays all filled up and everyone's in such a rut,
maybe it's time to call it a day.
When Thursday weighs you down, and and nobody's around to help calm you down,
it's easier to just try to feel free.

Cause men like these don't know how to hide
the giants on the mountain side. It's reasonable to see.

Yes indeed.

Maybe you should stop worrying about every moment.
Maybe you should just let everything flow.
Maybe you should stop worrying about every moment.
Maybe you should just let everything flow.

And let go.

Weeks and months and years and you're still sitting with your beer,
trying the drink away the pain inside.
If you'd just look at yourself in the mirror and say I'll be the change for all to hear.
I'll change myself and make my life complete.

I'd agree.


Maybe you should stop worrying about every moment.
Maybe you should just let everything flow.
Maybe you should stop worrying about every moment.
The past is over so let it all go.

Maybe you should stop worrying about every moment.
Maybe you should just let everything flow.
Maybe you should stop worrying about every moment.
The past is over so let it all go.
Track Name: Everything House
You built your walls,
You built them high,
They climb up to the sky
With bricks so smooth,
Solid glass too,
It's hard to believe you get around so fast.

It's an everything house,
The cat and the mouse,
Don't let words bring you down,
They'll bring you down,
You are not alone in this parade
Don't be afraid,
Don't be afraid

You stay in line,
I watch the time,
Staying forever,
Believe me when I tell you,
You play your catch,
A perfect match,
Come together and see what it's done

It's an everything house,
The cat and the mouse,
Don't let words bring you down,
They'll bring you down

It's an everything house,
The cat and the mouse,
Don't let words bring you down,
They'll bring you down
You are not alone in this regard,
Don't be alarmed,
Don't be alarmed
Track Name: Dying Song
I smoked a pack of cigarettes,
All for show
I used to remember all the time,
I said what you want,
And I gave it a shot,
But I'm dying, oh dying alone

I took a simple walk through my neighborhood,
I saw many things I didn't want to see,
And you knew it was me,
I came to impose,
But I'm dying, oh dying alone

Perhaps it's time to choose,
whether I win or loose,
Rock and roll or blues,
Without you, without you, without you

I came to a decision,
I have to move on,
I didn't want to do this,
But I have to choose,
Between me and you,
And my sanity to,
But I'm dying, oh dying alone

Perhaps it's time to choose,
whether I win or loose,
Rock and roll or blues,
Without you, without you, without you

In this single moment,
I have to stay strong,
I thought I knew it all,
But I was wrong,
It's time to close the door,
And start a new show,
But I'm dying, oh dying alone
But I'm dying, oh dying all alone
