Small Stakes

length: 3:01
writer: Britt Daniel

Small stakes
Give you the blues
But you don't feel taken
Don't think you've been used

'Cause it's alright Friday night to Sunday
It feels alright keeps your mind on the page

Oh yeah small stakes ensure you the minimum blues
But you don't feel taken and you don't feel abused
Small stakes tell you that there's nothing can do
Can't think big, can't think past one or two and alright!
Yeah alright!

Me and my friends
Sell ourselves
Short but feel
Very well

We feel fine
Aw we feel fine

And small time danger in your midsize car
I don't dig the stripes but I'll go for har mar
The big innovation on the minimum wage
Is lines up your nose but your life on the page so c'mon
Tell me I'm wrong

Small stakes
Will kill me
When you're stuck
In back of the line

It feels alright Friday night to Sunday
Aw it feels alright keeps your mind on the page

And small stakes bring you where you're caught in a rut
You feel so uptight you just want to throw it all up
And small stakes leave you with the minimum blues
Can't think big, can't think past one or two so c'mon

The Way We Get By

length: 2:41
composer: Britt Daniel
lyricist: Britt Daniel
We get high in back seats of cars
We break into mobile homes
We go to sleep to shake appeal
Never wake up on our own

And that's the way we get by
Way we get by
And that's the way we get by
Way we get by

We go out in stormy weather
We rarely practice discern
We make love to some weird sin
We seek out the taciturn

And that's the way we get by
Way we get by
And that's the way we get by
Way we get by

We found a new kind of dance in a magazine
Tried it out it's like nothing you ever seen
You sweet talk like a cop and you know it
You bought a new bag of pot, said let's make a new start

And that's the way to my heart
The way to my heart

That's the way we get by
Way we get by

We get high in back seats of cars
We put faith in our concerns
Fall in love to down on the street
We believe in the sum of ourselves

I said that's the way we get by

Something to Look Forward To

length: 2:17
writer: Britt Daniel, Miles Zuniga
Now Carole Don't Get Ahead Of Yourself
Don't Say Nothing Right Now
I'll Take It Anywhere You Let It Go

Everything Moving So Fast
It'll Take You A Place Where You Can't Get Back
And I've Seen It Enough
You Gotta Make Me Shut Up

So There's Something To Look Forward To
Gimme Something To Look Forward To

Your Mistakes Your Merciless Eye
Your Chicago Manual Of Style
It Only's Got To Go Just As Far As We Let It Go
So Carole Let Me Know

So Many Things We Could Say
So Many Things We Could Let Get Out
But You Stay In Instead
Some Things Are Best Left Unsaid

Gimme Something To Look Forward To

Stay Don't Go

length: 3:36
writer: Britt Daniel
Keep believing the things that you tell yourself
Everyone needs something they can tell themselves
To hold on to cause after all of it's said and done

Confession is stay don't go
Ooh it is
Ooh now stay don't go

At times you find that the truth is the best way out
Sometimes telling the truth is the best way out
And it's the wrong words that make you prick up your ears
When later alone

Confession is stay don't go
Ooh it is
Ooh now stay don't go

Jonathon Fisk

length: 3:16
composer: Britt Daniel
lyricist: Britt Daniel
Maybe You Remember Maybe You're Locked Away
Maybe We'll Meet Again Some Better Day Some Better Life

Mmmm Jonathon Fisk Speaks With His Fists
Can't Let Me Walk Home On My Own
And Just Like A Knife Down On My Life
So Many Ways To Set Me Right

It's Such A Long Way Home
It's How The Story Goes
And It's Like Atom Bombs And Blunt Razors
Atom Bombs And Blunt Razors

Jonathon Then Says It's A Sin
But He Don't Think Twice Cause To Him
Religion Don't Mean A Thing
It's Just Another Way To Be Right Wing
Just Like A Knife Down On My Life
So Many Ways To Set It Right
That's How It Goes That's How The Story Goes

It's Such A Long Way Home
You're Too Old To Understand
Cause I Just Want To Get Home Now
I Just Want To Get Home Now

Jonathon's Right Down On My Life
So Many Ways To Set Me Right
On The Long Walk Home
That's How The Story Goes
And Jonathon Fisk Always A Risk
Tells Me He Counts My Teeth Every Night
I Want To Get Them All Back Now
I Want To Get Them All Back
And I Want To Turn Him Around

Paper Tiger

length: 3:08
writer: Britt Daniel
I'll Never Hold You Back
And I Won't Force My Will
I Will No Longer Do The Devil's Wishes
Something I Read On A Dollar Bill
A Paper Tiger Can't Tell You Where He Stands
We'll Go Back Tonight The Way That We Came
I'm Not Dumb, Just Want To Hold Your Hand

So Alright
Where We Want To Be
And Alright
What That We Could Be

We Could Go Kick Down Some Doors Together
Stay Out Til Morning Sharp As Knives
The New War Will Get You It Will Not Protect You
But I Will Be There With You When You Turn Out The Light
Said I Will Be There With You When You Turn Out The Light
I Will Be There With You When You Turn Out The Light

Someone Something

length: 2:49
Everything Moves So Fast I Should Know It Won't Last
Take Some Stock What You Are What You See What You Got

It Tells Me True I Want A Connection To
Someone Something
Edge Of A Knife Been Missing It All My Life
Someone Something

They Get You Where You Live Don't Go Back You Can't Go Back Again

Yes It's True Just A Connection To
Someone Something
Been Up All Night Feel Like Sucking An Armalite
Someone Something

Everything Moves So Fast I Should Know It Won't Last

I Want A Settled Life I Want To Be Calm And Polite
Someone Something
I'll Get This Right When I Get There Now
Someone Something

Kate made it where most never been
Fixed up outside and broke within
She always said goodnight
Knowing the wrong from right

Well on the way the time
It showed her things she never find
And left her down in the dumps
Whoooa
All day and all night

Don't let it get you down
Don't let it get you down
Don't let it get you down
Don't let it get you down

Don't let it get you down

Kate grew up without makin a sound
Skipped ahead to settle down
Oh won't you come out tonight

Don't let it get you down

Don't let it get you down
Don't let it get you down
Don't let it get you down
Don't let it get you down

Who Rules The Day
Who Rules The Night
Go Pack Your Bags
Take Up Your Scythe
I Said This World Wasn't Meant For Us Both

Took a river and it wouldn't let go
I want you to stay and I want you to go
I took a river and the river was long and it goes on

I want to be there tonight
I want to get there but it's just out of sight
I took a river and felt so slight so hold on

So hold on
Hold on
It goes on

I took a river and the river was long
I want you to stay course I want you to go
I took a river and the river was long and goes on

It goes on
Ooh it goes on
It goes on
