Track Name: Open Your Mouth
When I was a young boy, this is what I’d do at night
Ten cents for a shoeshine, a dollar for some dynamite
All work and no play
Don’t make it okay
Dummy up, you don’t say
Get away, get away, get away, get away
It’s time to open your mouth and close your eyes

Oh, man, forget you, your dreams will never come alive
Sitting in your bedroom, listening to 45’s
Hey, what you know, Jack
You could get your life back
If you made the right track
Look at that, look at that, look at that, look at that
It’s time to open your mouth and close your eyes

Mother, mother, may I, may I say that I don’t mind
I’ve always been a dollar short, but that’s what made me pennywise
All work and no play
Don’t make it okay
Dummy up, you don’t say
Get away, get away, get away, get away
It’s time to open your mouth and close your eyes
Track Name: Can't Do Nothin'
Down in your heart
A strong emotion
Run like river
Deep like ocean.

Way down in your heart...

I see no reason
To leave you lonesome.
The ride is easy,
The way is open—wide open.

I can just see those walls go up
And can’t do nothin’ about it.
I can just see I lost your trust
And can’t do nothin’ about it.
I can just see those walls go up
And can’t do nothin’ about it.
I can just see I lost your trust
And can’t do nothin’ about it.

The page is flapping...
Why don’t you turn it?
A major lesson...
Why don’t you learn it?

I can just see those walls go up
And can’t do nothin’ about it.
I can just see I lost your trust
And can’t do nothin’ about it.
I can just see those walls go up
And can’t do nothin’ about it.
I can just see I lost your trust
And can’t do nothin’ about it.

Down in your heart
A strong emotion...can you feel it?
You cannot go wrong.
A good decision—and you know it.

I can just see those walls go up
And can’t do nothin’ about it.
I can just see I lost your trust
And can’t do nothin’ about it.
I can just see those walls go up
And can’t do nothin’ about it.
I can just see I lost your trust
And can’t do nothin’ about it.
Track Name: Not Right Now
I know you're leaving. I don't believe it.
Don't you feel that love, and don't you need it?
I've been conceited and I've been defeated.
I have played that game and I won't repeat it.

No I am not giving up right now. I'm not giving up right now.
I won't give up believing that we'll always make it through somehow.
I'm not giving up right now, no, not right now.
I can't give up the feeling that we'll always make it through somehow...
Always make it through somehow.

Rolling over, not your shoulder,
Not you next to me. We must have closure.
See, I'm growing older, a rolling boulder.
It was meant for me, to give control up.

But I am not giving up right now. I'm not giving up right now.
I won't give up believing that we'll always make it through somehow.
I'm not giving up right now, no, not right now.
I can't give up the feeling that we'll always make it through somehow...
Always make it through somehow.

Not right now.
Not right now.

Holding on for today, anyway, anyhow.
Holding strong...not for long...not too late...not right now...
Holding on for today, anyway, anyhow.
Holding strong...not for long...not too late...not right now...

Hate the mornings, heed the warnings,
Read the signs ahead, and feel the longing..
Now, I’ve been mistaken, but you can't fake this.
They said to give it up, but no no I can’t take it.

No I am not giving up right now. I'm not giving up right now.
I won't give up believing that we'll always make it through somehow.
I'm not giving up right now. Not right now.
I can't give up the feeling that we'll always make it through somehow...
We'll always make it through somehow.
Track Name: Ball and Chain
Now, I was wasted when you started / rolling over... in the night
Heard the door slam broken-hearted / I was wrong yeah... but this ain’t right

There was no note in the kitchen / but I read it all the same
All the furniture was missing / took your picture out the frame

Chorus
But there was a ball and chain / there was a ball and chain
That you left me, baby / That you left me babe
(2x)

All our friends have turned up missing / They just fade away...outta sight.
All our dreams... now just wishes / on a dying star in the night.

I been dragging through the city—all the memories of you.
Now, I’ve been faking it, heart-aching it...what more can I do?

Chorus

Now I don't go out on the weekend / There is nothin there for me
And I don't swim out past the deep end / cuz you draaaag meeee doooown too deeeeep

Yeah there was a ball and chain / there was a ball and chain
That you left me, baby / That you left me babe
(2x)
Track Name: Split
It’s just a song
Ain’t nothin’ wrong.
Y’ ain’t take m’ life.
Y’ ain’t break the law.
Y’ done what you thought was right.
You been doin’ it all along.
Wedding ring on the shelf.
The car was parked on the lawn.

You came and you saw then you split and you conquered me.
Cheated repeatedly hit and you plundered me.
Wasted my time, yes, you played with my mind.
Yes, you did it... you did it...you did it so suddenly.

You took my name.
You gave me love.
You shook my knees.
You drew my blood.
Your name was Rose.
You’re made of thorns.
You showed me wings.
You gave me horns.

You came and you saw then you split and you conquered me.
Cheated repeatedly hit and you plundered me.
Wasted my time, yes, you played with my mind.
Yes, you did it... you did it...you did it so suddenly.

A man is made
Of many bricks,
But underneath
It’s only sticks.
Our love is glass.
It’s an empty jar.
A heart o’ hay.
A soul o’ straw.

You came and you saw then you split and you conquered me.
Cheated repeatedly hit and you plundered me.
Wasted my time, yes, you played with my mind.
Yes, you did it... you did it...you did it so suddenly.
You came and you saw then you split and you conquered me.
Cheated repeatedly tripped and you blundered.
You wasted my time. Yes, you played with my mind.
Yes, you did it... you did it... you did it so suddenly.
