Lyrics

Swallowing Everything

Hanging out with all these dicks
Still collecting tokens
Knock ’em back, you’re making no sense
You live in the moment
Wonder you’re not morning sick making conversation
This dull arithmetic
All these stock exchanges

Swallowing everything
Sinker, hook and line
Paralyzied, anesthetized
Wasted one more time

Swarming now in dupliciate
Self-esteem consultants
They are fit yet unequipped
They cannot be insulted

Swallowing everything
Sinker, hook and line
Paralyzied, anesthetized
Wasted
One more time

Brand New

Been shaking hands with the unemployed
Can’t talk to her but I keep on trying
All pumped up
Lift that weight
Gotta get out tonight
Look great! Feel great!

Now I need somebody just like you
Somebody I can talk to

Lord I need
Somebody just like you
Somebody I can talk to

Bury Me

Bury me alive and pretend I’m away
Like you lost me out somewhere near the highway

I thought you were decent
Everything was easy
Every single word was true

I’ll ignore them all and believe I was right
I might start thinking too much when I’d rather deny it

I thought you were decent
Everything was easy
Every single word was true

I’m alright
I’m alright now

Monochrome

I can fill in your blanks just like reading your mind
Everybody’s got opinions well I know I’ve got mine

We’re running in place
Aint you tired? Just make up your mind
We’re only running in place
Hey are you tired?

I know you don’t deserve this
You needed someone to love
One more opportunity for somebody to knock

We’re running in place
Aint you tired? Just make up your mind
We’re only running in place
Hey are you tired?

Will you disappear when the world is near?
Will you run for cover?
Have you taken aim, found someone to blame?
Does it make you feel better?
You’re alright now, you’re better
Whatever

On Your Way Down

You have worked your way up to the top
Thought that you would make the whole world stop
Up to Venus, Mars and Jupiter
Bet your feet don’t even touch the Earth

On your way
On your way down
On your way
On your way down

Stumbling drunk now with authority
You’ve taken all that you can take from me

On your way
On your way down
On your way
On your way down

Are you lying to yourself?
There’s no right or wrong, no heaven and no hell
Now you’re losing all your friends to surround yourself
with all of your yes men

On your way
On your way down
On your way
On your way down

Money Shot

Dirty pictures watch her she gets paid
The money shot
Greatest hits on the mattress are what she’s got

So believable
Right where you belong
You want to be wanted
Nothing is as good as you thought it would be
You still get the money

At first it’s physical he’s got no heart
You don’t mind
It shakes your confidence he’s looking out
Don’t know what he’ll find

Well I’ll sit back and watch while you take it off
Like a veteran actress
So believable
Right where you belong
You want to be wanted

So believable
You can take it all
Now you know you’re wanted
Everything is good like you knew it would be

Now you’re wanted

Gone

Hey son, where you think you going?
We aint done
Hang tight
Everything can vanish overnight

None of your friends ever cared in the end
Now you’re dead
You are dead

Hey now you are gone
I can feel the sun
Now you are dead and you’re gone

Get a grip
You’re coughing up the shit that
you’ve been fed
None of your friends came around in the end
Now you’re dead
You are dead

Hey, now you are gone
I can feel the sun
Now you dead and you’re gone
Hey now you are gone
We’re all moving on
Now you are gone

Alright, just keep it move moving man there’s an end in sight
What was that you said?
Well that don’t really matter now you’ll be dead

Hey now you are gone
Can you feel the sun?
Now you are gone
Hey now you are gone
We’re all moving on
Now you are dead and you’re gone
You’re gone
Gone

Almost Out of Sight

Don’t ever show them how that weight might drag you down and
You don’t feel like trading places
Your false humility
You’ll be who they want you to be
But you can’t stand their smiling faces

It’s only economics and you enjoy this
You get by

Now you’re taking off
Man you are as high as a kite
Hey now you’re blowing up
You’re almost out of sight

Well nothing lasts forever
You try keeping it together but your
Highlight reel is running short
You know they’ve seen it all
Like any miracle
You are as easily ignored

It’s only economics
You enjoyed it
Wave goodbye

Now you’re taking off
Man you are as high as a kite
Hey now you’re blowin’ up
You’re almost out of sight

All these claims you’re making
While everybody is taken in
It’s only economics
It’s time to wave goodbye

Now you’re taking off
Man you are as high as a kite
Hey now you’re blowin’ up
You’re almost out of sight

Howl

Instrumental

410

Been trading insults all night long
Now we’re just getting started
Well I think we’ve got it
I see you talk
I see you opening your mouth
Just spit it out

All night long
All night
All night long

Are you alive?
I’m alive, I am alive

This time we’re gold you know
Well I let it go for good
I swear, not another word
I’m a problem solver love and
I got a 410 shotgun
I’ll kill us both immediately
If you can hold on
So long

All night long
All night
All night long

Are you alive?
I’m alive, I am alive

Goodbye

It can’t be hard to find a way to make your mark
Just light yourself on fire
I’ll sound the smoke alarm
Still life will pass you by
You’re gone without a trace
Might slow down just enough
To spit right in your face

Goodbye
So long
Goodbye
Now it’s time to say
Goodbye
It might be time to say goodbye

That’s entertainment son
You know your death ain’t news
We love an accident
I’d love to know it’s you
I spent three dollars on
These non-slip garden gloves
So I can bury you
Without blistering

Goodbye
So long
Goodbye
Now it’s time to say
Goodbye

They don’t miss you at all
They think you’re an asshole
