Track Name: Cheers
Here's to the damage we've done
Cheers to regret and feeling lonesome
And while we're here, let's make a toast to you and I
Cause tonight will be our goodbye
Track Name: These Vultures
Time is a thief
I've been asleep for days
Your cold black heart dragged my soul to the grave
I'm buried deep from my head to my feet
How did it come to this
My ghost is above me stealing all my breath
These vultures are laughing, ha

This sea of grief
Let me explain one thing
It's getting old
Just cut the shit already
I'm tired of suffocating
It's entertaining to you, I get it
But to me there's a factor of embarrassment
With these vultures laughing

The blood on your fingertips and apathy wrapped in a blanket
I just want you to know that I'm decaying
And you're staining the evidence on everything
The walls to the floor where I was laying
You were right beside me but your heart was blinding

The blood on your fingertips and apathy wrapped in a blanket
I just want you to know that I'm decaying
And you're staining the evidence on everything
The walls to the floor where I was laying
You were right beside me but your heart was blinding
Track Name: Insensitive, Goddamn
I'm broken promises
An upside down cross necklace
A bible with torn pages
I'm the smoke in your room with the door locked too
I'm the spoiled food you ate
The puke that you still taste
I'm no good for you
Thanks for letting me love you

I'm the worn out jacket that you wear
The chills that you despair
The long walk home freezing in the cold snow
I'm the ache in your head
With a hangover in your bed
The sun in your eyes beaming through the shades

It's a long road that we took
With the ups and downs that we shook
Off of our backs when we reached the other side, yeah
It's a lifetime of putting up with the shit that stinks on us
So goddamn insensitive when we fight
We'll never leave our sides

It's a long road that we took
With the ups and downs that we shook
Off of our backs when we reached the other side, yeah
It's a lifetime of putting up with the shit that stinks on us
So goddamn insensitive when we fight
We'll never leave our sides
Track Name: Same Old Street
He said it's what you wanted
She said it's bound to happen
They don't know who they're talking to
You said everything would be alright except it hasn't happened
Tearing the walls down tonight

Let's go to a better place
A place where we'll be alright
Why don't we stay a little while
I won't see this place again
Standing on the same old street
Let your demons out tonight, tonight

You're my everything
She said that this is ending
They don't know who they are anymore
The bottle fell to the floor
That's the end of the lover's fable
It'll storm the rest of the night

Let's go to a better place
A place where we'll be alright
Why don't we stay a little while
I won't see this place again
Standing on the same old street
Let your demons out tonight, tonight

Let's go to a better place
A place where we'll be alright
Why don't we stay a little while
I won't see this place again
Standing on the same old street
Let your demons out tonight, tonight
Track Name: The Fireside Bowl
I walked off with you to share a drink with another guy and a girl
And I couldn't help but think, I think you're looking at me too
I know it may seem farfetched but maybe you'll like my band
We should hang after the show, hang with my drummer and my girlfriend

Let's look at me
Like Mike Ness said, "What's a punk boy supposed to do?"
Let's look at you
A party girl, you'll make me miss every string I strum
I know that it may seem farfetched but maybe you'll like my band
We should hang after the show, hang with my drummer and my girl

Every song that night was about you
I don't even know you but I felt like I did
Every look in your eyes you noticed
I made a mistake and I know that I did

I am sick, I'm a freak, I'm a creep
And I am also selfish with these dreams in my bed
I am weird, I am weak, I can't sleep
Why did you have to come to The Fireside Bowl

Every song that night was about you
I don't even know you but I felt like I did
Every look in your eyes you noticed
I made a mistake and I know that I did

Every song that night was about you
I don't even know you but I felt like I did
Every look in your eyes you noticed
I made a mistake and I know that I did
Track Name: Help! I Need Alcohol
Help! I need alcohol
That faggot right there, buy me a beer
Because I am cheap and I got no money
And I play in a band, so buy me a beer
Look at my eyes, I'm serious
I'm not playing around
I'll stop this song cause I'm getting sober
And this song sucks
It's not fun to play when I'm not drunk
When I'm not drunk
When I'm not drunk

I'm looking at the girl with the red hot dress
I puke on her face and I'm making a mess
And I'm not sorry, no
I throw my beer bottles at the bartender
Until he gets the message, I will throw a little harder
And that's just me, me

Help! I need alcohol
I'm gonna throw up 'cause I'm coming down
And it's fucking with me and my feelings
And I'm playing too clean and no one looks pretty
When I'm not drunk
When I'm not drunk

I'm looking at the girl with the red hot dress
I puke on her face and I'm making a mess
And I'm not sorry, no
I throw my beer bottles at the bartender
Until he gets the message, I will throw a little harder
And that's just me, me

How many times do I have to say "throw me a beer before you walk away"
How many times do I have to say "throw me a beer before you walk away"

I'm looking at the girl with the red hot dress
I puke on her face and I'm making a mess
And I'm not sorry, no
I throw my beer bottles at the bartender
Until he gets the message, I will throw a little harder
And that's just me, me

I'm looking at the girl with the red hot dress
I puke on her face and I'm making a mess
And I'm not sorry, no
I throw my beer bottles at the bartender
Until he gets the message, I will throw a little harder
And that's just me, me
Track Name: Chugger
This beer I chugged is sadder then the beer I drowned in seconds ago
Now I'm only down to pocket change
The gun behind the counter shoots words in my ear and out the other
When did I walk into a shooting range

I miss those summer nights under Saint Charles lights
And we stumbled into every bar in town
But now that it's winter, I miss staring at eyes
Licking up every drop in this bitch

This whiskey I had is badder then the swill I had one minute ago
Sorry man, I've only got lint and change
The bar bitch comes and grabs my shirt
I talk some shit and I get hurt
And thrown outside to freeze in the fucking snow

And I blink three times
It's already after midnight
The lights are bright and the noise is low
I walk myself home alone, I walk myself home alone

All this year I've had a blast
But them round of beers went too damn fast
And all this year I've had a blast
But them round of beers went too damn fast

And I blink three times
It's already after midnight
The lights are bright and the noise is low
I walk myself home alone, I walk myself home alone

And I blink three times
It's already after midnight
The lights are bright and the noise is low
I walk myself home alone, I walk myself home alone
Track Name: Pray Like Hell
The fire is rising up like a bomb about to explode
One fucking pill and it defuses
Some may think I'm crazy or just a little undone, well yeah
I shoot out words, like a gun, I open fire

People keep on talking, acting like I'm not around
A pair of headphone, sink quickly and I will drown
I'm mortified to even say hello or goodbye
I'd rather lay in bed with the shades shut as I die

Die - Hope the demons will go away
Die - Pray like Hell that God will take me
Die - Watch my spirit leave my body
Die - Pray like Hell that God will take me

Die - Hope the demons will go away
Die - Pray like Hell that God will take me
Die - Watch my spirit leave my body
Die
Track Name: Chicago Nights
I've seen the devil look at the stars
I've hear the motherfucker pray
"Thank you Lord for saving me, although I sin, I sing everyday"
The love is cold on the bottom floor
The wind passes through the city doors
And I've found myself sitting along side with the devil look at the stars

One life is all we got
The eyes in the alleyway have one hand in their back pocket
While the others trick-or-treat and we walk away

What will happen, we can't expect
Our eyes see what we never forget
Yet we drink past the day (Drink past the days)
To pretend that our lives, our lives are okay

One life is all we got
The eyes in the alleyway have one hand in their back pocket
While the others trick-or-treat and we walk away

This city hasn't been happy sine '89
This city hasn't been happy since 1989

One life is all we got
The eyes in the alleyway have one hand in their back pocket
While the others trick-or-treat and we walk away

This city hasn't been the same since '89
This city hasn't been the same since 1989
Track Name: Death Row Lullaby
The ones that pray, they follow through 'till the very end
As the rest go through Hell and they never come back again
Cause all of their hope is lost and the jail cells rust
It's cold as ice on the concrete floor

The prisoners sing while they're on death row
The children dance but what they don't know is when the music stops
The noose hangs low
And so it goes back to the start where the sun doesn't shine
The victim is innocent to the crime
At the wrong place at the wrong time
Joyful and blind

And those who fight to stay alive
They are on death row and they have a reason why
They're running out of time
Cause life is much too short just to sit here and to cry
Everyone sing a lullaby

The prisoners sing while they're on death row
The children dance but what they don't know is when the music stops
The noose hangs low
And so it goes back to the start where the sun doesn't shine
The victim is innocent to the crime
At the wrong place at the wrong time
Joyful and blind

The prisoners sing while they're on death row
The children dance but what they don't know is when the music stops
The noose hangs low
And so it goes back to the start where the sun doesn't shine
The victim is innocent to the crime
At the wrong place at the wrong time
Joyful and blind
Joyful and blind
Joyful and blind
Track Name: Life's A Gamble
I can feel it through the burns from the wreck out on the street
We were two lovers colliding and our hearts just skipped a beat
From cardiac arrest to the sound of the beep
In separate beds, our hands can't meet
Life's a gamble, darling
Sometimes we fold the cards that we should hold
So let it be and let's just see
'Cause clearly we're not alone

You're a junkies dream of needles in your veins
And I 'm a clown smoking cigarettes on a train
And nothing seems to be working right
So what's wrong with tonight
Life's a gamble darling
Sometime's we fold the cards that we should hold
So let it be and let's just see
'Cause clearly we're not alone

Alone - Will you open the door
Alone - Let me stumble inside
Alone - Will you pour me a drink

Alone - Will you open the door
Alone - Let me stumble inside
Alone - Will you pour me a drink
Alone - Kiss me and say good night
Track Name: Dead Roses For A Pretty Face
Forget about these roses in the morning
They'll be dead since I left them without lungs
And the rain trickling softly down upon them
Will wash away the rest of their...

Going back to my memories
I've fallen down onto my knees
Laughing hastily at the times we've had
'Cause I can't remember a fucking thing
All I have is mixed feelings and all the messages that I've sent
What it was, I'll never know
A pretty face but there was no show of any sign or emotion you had
I guess it was me all along
You are no lyrics to a song
I take back every fucking word that I've said

Forget about these roses in the morning
They'll be dead since I left them without lungs
And the rain trickling softly down upon them
Will wash away the rest of their love

The warning signs were not enough
That's what I get for being struck
You left me with all of the shame
My heart has broken from the cuffs
The beats it gave were always so rough
The wear and tear damaged the chains
What it was, I'll never know
A pretty face but what their was no show of any sign or emotion you had
I guess it was me all along
You are no lyrics to a song
I take back every fucking word that I've said

Forget about these roses in the morning
They'll be dead since I left them without lungs
And the rain trickling softly down upon them
Will wash away the rest of their love

Forget about these roses in the morning
They'll be dead since I left them without lungs
And the rain trickling softly down upon them
Will wash away the rest of their love

So, forget about these roses in the morning
They'll be dead since I left them without lungs
And the rain trickling softly down upon them
Will wash away the rest of their love
Track Name: Cheers (Reprise)
Here's to the memories we had
Cheers to forget and not feeling bad
And while I'm here, I'll make a toast for just myself
'Cause I will bury you tonight
