Track Name: Junkie
Well I’ve always been a sucker for that moment when the lights go down
And those pictures tell a story on the screen
And I’ve tried to drag you with me down this road that leads to nowhere
Now you’ve seen more than you ever cared to see

I hope you don’t start to resent me on account of my obsession
‘Cause it doesn’t seem to be going away
I never learn my lesson

‘Cause I’m a junkie, yeah, it’s true
And I’ve gotta do what I’m compelled to do
I know it doesn’t always make much sense to you,
But it gets me through

I get so much satisfaction from a checkmark by a title
Oh, it makes my insides feel all nice and warm
I guess it’s sorta like the feeling you get from a shot of whiskey
Or a rail of coke, or a needle in your arm

I’m addicted to the movies and I don’t think I’ll ever kick
But as addictions go, it’s not the worst I could have picked

I’m a junkie, yeah it’s true
But admit it, darling, you’re a junkie too
So come along with me and I’ll go along with you
And we’ll get through
Track Name: Love/Hate
There’s a hole in the wall and a bruise on my fist
Wish I hadn’t drunk so much tonight
Sometimes I lose control and I end up like this
And I wish I had someone to fight

You called me up tonight
Just to say you missed me
And I know I shouldn’t read too much into the conversation, no
Now here I sit alone again in silent desperation
And sometimes I just wanna kill you
I just wanna kill you

I hate you because you make me hate myself
because I love you

Well, the bottle will empty a drop at a time
‘Til I smash it all over the floor
Then I’ll stare at your picture for a moment or two
Then I’ll hit the wall as I head out the door

The stars are bright tonight
But my mind is hazy
And I wander out into the street feeling like I’m going crazy
And I run and I run and I run and I run and I run and I run and I run and I run and I run

I hate you because you make me hate myself because I love you, because I love you
Oh I hate you ‘cause I love you, and I love you ‘cause I hate you and I hate you ‘cause I love you
So much
Track Name: Keaton
Keep a stone face
Never let ‘em know what you’re thinking
Even if your boat is sinking
Keep it inside
Keep your feelings undercover
If they hear you speak, it’s over

You’ve got a job to do
You don’t need anyone to help you
Things have a way of coming back around on you
If you keep on track, keep on track, keep on track

You never thought you’d get the girl
But today a hundred girls will chase you
And all your dreams will come true
Don’t be afraid to step into the screen for as long as you need to
To figure things out
And if you ever have a doubt
Just remember that

You’ve got a job to do
You don’t need anyone to help you
Things have a way of coming back around on you
If you keep on track, keep on track, keep on track

You know where you’re going
Don’t let them take the wheel from you
And if the walls fall down
Be sure to find a window you can squeeze your shoulders through

You’ve got a job to do
You don’t need anyone to help you
Things have a way of coming back around on you
If you keep on track, keep on track, keep on track
Keep on track, keep on track, keep on track
Keep on track, keep on track, keep on track
Track Name: Depressants and Stimulants
I didn’t think we’d make it
Through those endless lonely nights
You ended up on PBR and American Spirit Menthol Lights
And I drank so much caffeine
That my heart would start to race
It was Coke Zero and Red Bull ‘til I lost my sense of taste

And we found ourselves altered and said things we didn’t mean
And we both stared at the ceiling and thought about getting clean

I need you to start me up in the morning
And you need me to calm you down in the afternoon
We consume each other like a meth lab fire
It’s a race to the bottom and I hope we hit it soon

You checked in for treatment and some psychiatric tests
It was polysubstance dependence and bipolar disorder NOS
And our house felt so empty so I scored some bad cocaine
It was heavy metal and porno and my self-respect down the drain

And I looked in the mirror and I didn’t like the view
And it was Jesus Christ or a heart attack and my choice between the two

I need you to start me up in the morning
And you need me to calm you down in the afternoon
We consume each other like a meth lab fire
It’s a race to the bottom and I hope we hit it soon

Can our love recover?
One day at a time
We’ll trust a higher power
And walk the dotted line

I need you to start me up in the morning
And you need me to calm you down at night
We consume each other like a holy fire
It’s a race to the middle, goodbye to the lows and highs
Track Name: Denial
Isn’t this the best place we could possibly be?
Maybe not, but anyway, we’re here
So I say we make the most of it and play the hand we’re dealt
Instead of wasting our lives ruled by fear

We’re running out of time before the bell
But we refuse to admit it to ourselves

We’re all trying to forget we’re gonna die
‘Cause we’re afraid to meet the man in the sky
Or we’re afraid of finding out there’s no man in the sky
So we act like we’re all just fine, and we race towards the finish line
And we push the truth down deep and work so hard for peace of mind
We sing, or we pray, or we drink and fight and dance the night away
But we can’t escape the end of the day

So while our hearts are still beating
Let’s say the words until they lose their meaning

We’re gonna die, we’re gonna die, we’re gonna die
We’re gonna die, we’re gonna die, we’re gonna die
We’re gonna die, we’re gonna die, we’re gonna die
We’re gonna die, we’re gonna die, we’re gonna die
We’re gonna die, we’re gonna die, we’re gonna die
We’re gonna die, we’re gonna die, we’re gonna die
We’re gonna die, we’re gonna die, we’re gonna die
We’re gonna die, we’re gonna die, we’re gonna die

We’re all trying to forget we’re gonna die
‘Cause we’re afraid to meet the man in the sky
Or we’re afraid of finding out there’s no man in the sky
So we act like we’re all just fine, and we race towards the finish line
And we push the truth down deep and work so hard for peace of mind
We sing, or we pray, or we drink and fight and dance the night away
But we can’t escape the end
Track Name: Welles
Look where we are, isn’t this great?
It feels like Christmas Day
And this is the best train set that a boy could ever get
So let’s get to work before they figure out
We don’t really know what we’re talking about
We’re like a California wine that’s been sold before its time

But I believe in this dream more than anything
More than love or death or God or hell or heaven
So keep the focus on the background and the foreground and everything between
‘Cause we might never be this free again

What if this is as good as it gets?

So this is France…or is it Spain?
I must have fallen asleep on the plane
Now I’m hungry and confused
As though something’s been removed
So come with me now and let’s give this a try
We’re caught in the space between truth and lies
On the other side of the wind
Toward the windmill once again

Who needs peace and brotherhood and comfort?
Give me pain and fear and war and blood and famine
Now the chimes are ringing midnight, but what’s midnight but the dark before the dawn?
Every new day is a place we’ve never been

So what if this is as good as it gets?
So what if this is as good as it gets?
When I die, I will not look back with one ounce of regret
Even if this is as good as it gets
Track Name: Nicolas Cage
I used to tell myself that you were perfect
But lately I can’t say that with a straight face
Still, I’ve been holding on for your good days, and sometimes
It feels like a wild goose chase

Every time I think you’re on the right track
You give the steering wheel another jerk
It’s hard to think of life without you
But I don’t know if this gonna work

‘Cause your heart is wild like Nicolas Cage is
And like Nic Cage, it makes questionable decisions
But I love it anyway
You’re irresponsible and extravagant
And a lot of the things you do frustrate me
But there’s no one else like you

I come home to find you screaming
Doused in paint and clawing at the walls
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised
Once in a while you’ve gotta let a little madness out
So it won’t eat you from inside

But what happens when the madness gets to be the only thing that’s coming through?
You’re a little hard to handle now that breaking things is all you do

And your heart is wild like Nicolas Cage is
And like Nic Cage, it makes questionable decisions
But I love it anyway
You’re decadent and incoherent
A lot of the time, I can’t understand you
But I’m not ready to give up

Once you were Leaving Las Vegas, and now you’re Left Behind
I guess I’ll have to adapt
‘Cause I am what I love and not what loves me back
Track Name: Ana Torrent
Mama, I’ve been seeing things
Is my sister really dead?
Are there monsters creeping ‘round the plains
Or is it in my head?

There’s a darkness in the distance
That I cannot understand
Mama, is your lover far away
With his blood on Father’s hands?

Sometimes I think I hit my peak when I was five
That was back before they stuck me in the beehive
Back when hope was still alive
And I still believed in Frankenstein

Teacher, show me where the heart is
And feed me something sweet
My eyes will never be this wide again
Show me which mushrooms not to eat

Sometimes I think I hit my peak when I was five
That was back before they stuck me in the beehive
Back when hope was still alive
And I still believed
Track Name: Peckinpah
Well, a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do, Bill
And sometimes what a man’s gotta do is kill
But there comes a time when what a man’s gotta do is die
Nobody makes a clean getaway
No matter how hard you run or how hard you pray
They’re gonna catch up to you as soon as your tank runs dry

Like every man, you were once a child
But the world can steal your soul and turn you wild
And you can’t repair the damage you have done
To your liver with the bottle
Or to other people’s faces with a gun
Track Name: American Splendor
I can’t promise I’ll never get cancer
And I don’t know if we’ll have a child
And I sorta doubt we’ll ever leave Cleveland
And head into the wild

Something inside me says I should keep writing
Even though it’ll never make us rich
I don’t fit in the middle of the road
So I’ll stay in the ditch

And all I can offer is American Splendor
I’ll wake you up every day and we’ll both go to work
You’ll long for adventure
But ordinary life can be an adventure
So what more can you ask for?

And I sorta doubt we’ll ever get famous
