Track Name: Bulletproof
Feel a little cold on my fingers
Same feelng as when I played on the streets
Falls coming through still summer lingers
Falls gonna bring you right back around to me yeah

Driving through small town Wyoming
Big spaces with funny names
White line fever got to keep moving
Taking my time and burning gasoline

chorus
On a Sunday afternoon
I’ll be waking up with you
All this bullshit that we been through
We were just learning to be bulletproof x3

Please don’t ask my motivation
I’ll crumble at the tone of your voice
Even the best get blindsided
Find your feet and make a choice

On a Sunday afternoon
I’ll be waking up with you
All this bullshit that we been through
Were just learning to be bulletproof
Were just learning to be bulletproof
We were just Lea-rn-ing
We were just lea-rn-ing

On a Sunday afternoon
Waking up without you
All this bullshit that we been through
Were just learning to be bulletproof
We were just learning to be bulletproof
I was just learning how bout you?
Track Name: El Camino
You can tell me no no no no no (repeat)
But I got a drive
Like an el camino
You can call me slow slow slow slow slow (repeat)
But I am a Mac truck creeping on uphill

Music’s gonna save my soul
And I still love rock n roll
Music’s gonna save my soul
(repeat)

We know who we are (repeat)
And we won’t forget it
No we won’t forget it

We know what we want (repeat)
We’re gonna go and get it
We’re gonna go and get i-i-it

Music’s gonna save my soul
And I still love rock n roll
Music’s gonna save my soul
(repeat)

You can tell me no no no
You can tell me no no no
But I got a drive like an el camino
Track Name: Ah Ooh Ooh
I was thinking of a sad song
I was thinking of an empty room
But I was feeling a glad song
I was feeling I’ll see you soon

Ah Ooh Ooh Huh huh!
Ah Ooh Ooh Okay
Ah ooh ooh Huh huh!
Ah Ooh ooh

I was thinking bout all the things I wanted
And I was thinking that I cannot afford it
And I was thinking about all the things I needed
And I was thinking its only a matter of time

chorus

Why try they may say
Well why not try
They don’t know why

I was think bout all the things that I loved
And I was thinking that one of them was you oh ooh
And I was thinking bout all the things that I done
And I was thinking bout all that I’m about to do

chorus
Track Name: Internet
I put it on the internet, Internet
If you like you can share it share it
And the past you cannot bury it bury it
Cause I put it on the internet internet

The moon is so beautiful
Sharing this night with you
Just you and I
A big night sky
Oh but I’m reaching in my pocket
No I cannot help it
You know it was so instant

Chorus

And all of the best bands
Have lots to say to their fans
Everyone’s a writer
Professional photographer
Opinion editor
Kitten collector
I like their old stuff better
Who even asked you
Lets all get together

Chorus
Key change-last chorus

Cause I put it on the internet internet
You could buy it buy it
Easier to steal it steal it
Big brother even he can see it see it
Surprised surprised suprised you never tried It
Cause I put it Put it
I put it on the internet internet
Track Name: Sky is Falling
Sky is falling lyrics

Chorus

Ooh it seems the sky is falling down
Ooh it never seems to touch ground
Screaming without making a sound
It’s so effortless so effortless to drown

Repeat

I thought found the cure for what ails me at the store
It spent all my money and left me wanting for more
Names and faces I’m surrounded
Everybody’s waiting for there time to talk I really need somebody
To listen listen

Chorus

Names and faces I’m surrounded
Everybody’s waiting for there time to talk I really need somebody
To listen listen

Disappear here
Disappear here yeah
Disappear here
Disappear
Track Name: Two Days Sober Ginger Ale
Two days sober ginger ale
You walk me to the corner store
I didn’t need your help before
What’s the point in building walls
I’m pretty sure you’d smash them all
With one single phone call

I didn’t need your help
I got this by myself
What’s the point in building walls I think you’d smash them all

I wish that I could walk around inside your shoes
To see which side of the sidewalk you’re gonna choose
You say that you become obsessed with
Everyone that you have sex with
So I will not take the compliment

chorus

Sitting here upon the bed of all our morning love making
I went to work with a smile again
And you were late
You had to call a cab
And I didn’t care
I didn’t care at all

Two days sober ginger ale (repeat)
I think you’d smash them all
Track Name: Pretty Little Mind
There’s a strange strange stranger sleeping in my bed
Now sleep for me is out of the question
Wondering just what the hell happened
Who’s that girl in the mirrors reflection

Don’t you worry your pretty little mind
About the way that I’ve been occupying my time
I could paint whatever kind of picture you like
I’m counting seconds hours minutes days months till you’re by my side

Slow turnout but the drinks are free
Fighting burnout so keep the booze coming
Loading up the car should I really be driving
Blue lights flash need license and registration

Chorus

Chorus

There’s a strange strange stranger sleeping in my bed
Now sleep for me is out of the question
Track Name: Getaway Car
I have now turned my back upon myself
Going about things as somebody else
It’s easy to believe when the world beneath my feet shifts daily

Never dreamed of a life of organized crime
Just couldn’t take that day in day out grind
Its not the life for me just one clean robbery
It could finance all my dreams
Put the money in the bag got the gun in my hand

Would you wait for it
With the engine running
Would you wait for it
Would you drive my getaway car X3
Ooh woah ooh ooh

Please don’t think of the law
And please don’t think about prison
Don’t think about your friends
How you’re never gonna see them
Picture mexico with your toes down in the sand
Got a fruity little drink and I’m right there righr there holding your hand

Chorus

Drive with me into the night
Drive this city out of site
Drive until that orange empty light
On the side of the road I’ll pull you close
Say it’s you I love the most---final chorus
Track Name: Deirdre Lee
Oh Deirdre lee
Wont you come back to me
My canines are dripping red
I’m sleepless in this bed I’ve made
I never knew such regret oh Deirdre lee
Wont you come back to me

Turn back the clock now
Way before midnight
Fill up that bottle
And seal up the cap tight
Back when you were all mine
And I was all yours
This heartache is worse than you deserve

Chorus
(won’t you come running on back to me)

Dakota blue skies
Guilty as charged no albi
Wide open plains are boxing me in
Need the rush of your voice and the touch of your skin
Chorus
Track Name: Hand Grenade
I’m sorry I’ve forgotten my way home
Don’t worry cause I Learned what I should have known

Stop telling me this x2
Stop telling me
I just wanna see you now
Stop telling me this x3

(Chorus)
Love is a hand grenade
don’t you get caught holding it
Death is a slow parade
You will be the star of it

When I saw you I didn’t have much to say
its been so long since I heard
your voice over the machines breathing
the machines

Stop telling me this x2
Stop telling me
I just wanna feel you now
Stop telling me this x3

Chorus

Are you sleeping
Are you breathing
Are you running
Are you using your legs
Repeat

Chorus
You will be the star of it x3
Track Name: Zeda
ZEDA lyrics

Me and my horse named Zeda
Ride wherever the wind takes us
She ain’t the biggest or the fastest one around
Moves like a champion, she’s never let me down

Me and my horse named zeda
Riding across the mesa
You cant go home now
You’ll hang your head in disgrace
You can’t go home now girl
You’ve only had a taste

Zeda, the mountains, the cowboys and me
Zeda, the mountains, the cowboys and me
And I never really felt so free-eee-ee
Woo!

Wyoming they love their guns their trucks and mostly jesus
Good god fearing folks saving themselves for marriage
You never met my family I suggest you watch your tone
Cursing so hateful it’s hard for me to just let it go

Chorus
Never really felt so free
Living it up in a place I really shouldn’t be

So I’ll take that long ride home
Hang out where it’s easy to agree
The politics don’t shift we can only shift the blame
And back up on the mountain all us Yankees are insane

Chorus

Me and zeda
Me and zeda
