Tracklist

Nothing Good

length: 3:29

Mean cat tried to bring me down
I said hey man, won't cha lose my number
He is way off track
I've got eyes in my back baby
Take off this ball and chain
It's as heavy as a brick house
I said stay away
Get out of my neighborhood
Blew me way off track
I got a knife in my back
Nothing good comes easy baby
Nothing good, nothing good
Wash my hands of this I'm lazy
Cause baby nothing good
Nothing good

Time to Run

length: 4:19
Well I'm standing at the front line
My life seems like a war
And I'm so tired of fighting babe
Don't wanna see your face no more
Well I think you know it's over
It's better left undone
Now I will soon be going
Cause the things you've said and done
(Chorus)

I know, baby it's time to run
Why don't you open your eyes
And I know, baby your time has come
It's time to run

(Post Chorus)
Your time has come baby
It's time to run
Your time has come baby
It's time to run

When I'm talkin' to ya boy
I might be talkin' to the wall
Now I've got news for you
You just ain't no fun at all
I don't hear a word for me
I don't hear your words at all
You better watch your step
Cause your heading for a fall
(Chorus)

I just want to walk away
I just turn my back and say
Baby your time has come
I'm so tired, I'm so confused
Twice around I've paid my dues
Baby it's time to run

(Chorus 2X)

Bad Reputation

length: 2:32
You've got a bad reputation
That's the word out on the town
It gives a certain fascination
But it can only bring you down
[Chorus]
Turn yourself around
Turn yourself around
Turn it upside down
Turn yourself around
You got bad breaks
Well, that's tough luck
You've played too hard
Too much rough stuff
You're too sly, so cold
That bad reputation has made you old

My Misery

length: 3:45
God only knows that sometimes
It's hard to even fake a smile
It gets so old looking at these city lights
So dark and lonely but I'll be alright
I'm praying
Chorus:
My misery
Bring it down come and take it from me
My misery
Love is careless in just who it might see
My misery
So far away
Closer than those who are surrounding me
Something's reaching
Something unseen
Keeps coming over me
And calling my name

Little Man

length: 3:30
Long haired baby, mad gone crazy
You turned my head around
Flat on my back, you took what you got
And walked without a sound
Dizzy and blue, I shoulda known you'd
Throw me a line
I bought it big time
But one thing I never said
Chorus:
You're a little man, little man
You're a little man, Oh a little little man
Now I may sound bitter but this was a kicker
I still kind of hold a grudge
I should 've seen it coming
But you, you'd buy the booze
And honey, I would lose it
I still remember, you weren't that f****** great
I won't give up my mind for you,
Oh no little man
This time you're on your a** it's true
Oh yeah little man
Little man, little man a little man
You're a little man, little man a little man
The best part of you was left on the sheet
Who you gonna please with that thing? Yourself?

Better Off Dead

length: 3:50
additional guest electric guitar: John Norum
I know you swim in the s***
From your own fat head
Feel not a thing numb to your
Brother who drowns in the street
I'll show you a million
Words that I never said
Chorus 1:
Now it's time to reap in what you've sown
Better off dead
Nail me down my soul you'll never own
Better off dead
I claim you a symbol for what's wrong today
Closed eyes with my back to you
Shattered faith of your jaded prey
Chorus 2:
Now it's time to reap in what you've sown
Better off dead
Nail me down my soul you'll never own
Better off dead
Smear your face in the dirt from
Which you were born
Better off dead
Losing now a mask of false control
Better off dead
I know you swim in the s***
From your own fat head
Feel not a thing numb to your
Brother who drowns in the street
I'll show you a million
Words that I never said

(Chorus 2)

You're better off dead

Anti Love Crunch

length: 3:08
Checkin' you out you be looking so fine
Call me dessert babe if you wanna grind
Got my new freedom but it ain't no freedom to me
Wanna do it but you're just not gonna listen
And it doesn't really matter
Cause we won't do more than kissin'
Oh, it's not up to me anti love
Chorus:
Anti love crunch
Anti love
Anti love crunch
Been whining and pleading and begging to score
The color is red baby need I say more?
Got my wings on but we ain't gonna fly tonight
Say you want me and you want more than the kissin
But it doesn't really matter
Cause I gotta keep you wishin'
Oh, it's not up to me anti love

Loved Ya to Pieces

length: 3:13
Such a lovely day the sun was shining
Down on cell 37
God turn this water into whiskey sour
Pay you back if I get to Heaven
No one to love or need
Think I'm lonely
Judge wouldn't pardon me
He only gave me a life-long lease in a house that's ugly
and a maid that's big and mean

[Chorus]
Loved ya to pieces more than life
Loved ya to pieces cut like a knife
Preacher spoke and grown men cried
Rest in pieces from your sweet little wife
It was my last cigarette
And I was looking back on you
You were so d*** sweet
Lying in my sister's, lying in my sister's bed
Turn the other cheek that's what they told me
Lasted for a week then they sold me
A six inch blade with your name written on it
A gift from me to you
[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Now I might sound a little bitter baby
But you know what I'm talking about
You know it's cold inside, cold inside
Yeah, I loved you too much
Couldn't stand to see you touching someone else
Why not me?

So Easy

length: 3:33
Now I don't mean to be offensive
But your brain's not that expensive
That's okay with me
Your trash can mentality
Makes good for small talkology
I don't think I'm leaving
(Pre-Chorus)
Now it seems so catastrophic
But oh well
Mom said to never play with matches

(Chorus I)

You make it easy
You make it so easy
Now I thought I'd seen it all
And I guess I'm still in shock
It's kind of sleazy
But when I look at your face
I see that saving grace
I get so weak in the knees
(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus II)

You make it so d*** easy
You know it feels kind of frightening
You make it so d*** easy
You know you come on like the lightning

So when I come a knockin' on your back door
You better let me in 'cause I want more baby

Lied to Me

length: 3:16
Ma ma ma money, money, money, money
s** drugs money, let's live a little honey
Had a d*** for a mother and a b**** for a dad
Little brother lost his mind , his grades were too bad
Didn't understand couldn't really see
I could fell it, I could feel
Growin' like a weed in the sick sense of me
Some dumb stupid b**** in a white f*****' Benz
Got s*** faced f*****, burned all her friends
Needle in her arm and her little car alarm
I can hear her saying oh god, why's they -

Chorus:
Lie to me, oh man they lied to me
I'm sad
Lied to me
They never quit
Tell you what I want, I ask you what I need
Might as well be deaf and dumb and not read
Never really mattered if you didn't understand
They don't speak those words in f*****' Iran
Go the hell back, Take your ugly hat
I don't need ya, I don't need
Slimy little f***** with a knife behind your back
I don't need ya, I don't need
Little sinless men saying give me what you got
I'll take my fat a** home and buy myself a yacht
I don't really mean to be cryin'
So much I'm just p***** off
Cause the worlds so f*****
(Chorus)

The world seems to be spinning
Faster and Faster
I think I might stop

(Chorus)

Lied to me, oh man they lied to me
I'm sad, lied to me, oh man they lied to me

A Little Evil

length: 3:06
additional guest electric guitar: Marty Friedman
Mad mad man in a bottle
Sad sad man sad man oh man
What the hell's wrong
So many different sights
A little south of the border
Solo flight through a guiltless mind
A little dirt on the doormat of life
Falling down the stairs
Reaching out for a hand
Got not fingers on it
And a watch that tells no time

Chorus 1:
I like a little evil
Sometimes it makes me feel
I like a little evil
Oh yeah
It's not a fool's gold
That hold the taste of fine wine
It smells sweeter to me
Born right out of the blue
Took the seed from the garden of truth
Looking through a crystal eye in the sky
See them runnin' round in circles
Like they've lost their minds

Chorus 2:
I like a little evil
Sometimes it makes me feel
I like a little evil
Chorus 3:
I like a little evil
Sometimes it makes me feel
I like a little evil
It makes me feel

Chorus 4:
I like a little evil
Sometimes it makes me feel
I like a little evil
A little evil

You're Free

length: 4:28

I found you
I know where you're at
I'm so tired of sleeping through these nights
Lonely nights
Close my eyes sometimes

[Chorus]
Go now you're free
Walk away from me
Go now you're free
I was so blind, slow mind
Go now

Hearts breaking
Shattered in two
You kept on pushing through

You heard me crying lately
Bought what you said, yeah, yeah
All those lies you told me
Have gone to your head

Is this how it's ending
That's all there was to say
Backed in a corner
Give it a break
Not made of mercy
You get what you give
Misunderstanding how much I'd take
