Track Name: Hangover From Hell
Never thought it’d be like this
Woke on a couch that smells like piss
Dunno what else I can do
Go downstairs and grab a brew

My job sucked and so I quit
My whole life’s a piece of shit
City’s burning, we’re fucked up
Time to fill the party cup

I watched TV until I puked
They asked for help but we refused
The world ended, it’s our fault
I’m drinkin’ whiskey, double malt
And double vision’s looking so good
I’m seeing twice the cans of cat food
In my luxury bomb shelter downtown
Hangover from Hell!
Hangover from Hell!
Hangover from Hell!

Days are gray and night is black
Sobriety’s not coming back
Earth still spins just like my head
But just like it it’s also dead

Now we’re stuck living in ashes
Cuz no one got off their asses
The world ended, they all died
I’m eatin’ pizza, chicken fried
And more for me means less for no one
Empty planet tends to be fun
My guilt is drowned by liquids clear and brown
Hangover from Hell!
Hangover from Hell!
Hangover from Hell!

Hangover!
From!
Hell!
Track Name: Pusher Man
Dead in the eyes - dead in the sheets
Death can’t deny - death can’t be beat

Follow me to hope - follow me to home
Get the straight dope - get it on your own

I’ll show where the lying man rests his head at night
Down the hallway through the door he’ll make you feel alright

If only you knew where he was or how to get to him
You’d see him every god damn day to get your fix right in

...I don’t know what to take away
...Good, bad, or just plain horrible
...Always there to be a man
...Twenty-four hours of the day

He first left school at just sixteen to work at the record store
Drank and smoked and blew and shot most nights on the bathroom floor

Got married to this little girl just four years less his age
Realized he had a child waking from a two year haze

...I don’t know what to take away
...Good, bad, or just plain horrible
...Always there to be a man
...Twenty-four hours of the day

Now with wife and child and bills he turned to what he knew well
Filling pipes and arms and brains he’s surely going to hell
His lady left just him and her he did whatever he could
Regretting that which always was a big should
I’ll show you where the trying man lays his kid at night
Down the hallway up the stairs he makes her feel alright
If only you knew how hard he tried to get her to love him
You’d not say shit on what he does to get his money in
Track Name: Alive Again Again
I found this band, they really rock
They get me, I get them
The music is a gift to me
I feel alive again

It’s been so long since I have felt
That piece of my broke head
Their noise tapped right into my brain
It seems I’ve made a friend

That piece is back, I can’t complain
That peace is back, no sad refrain
That piece is back, I feel alive again

It’s like a high I’ve never felt
Except for those few times
I skipped out on my medicine
And took flight in my mind

That piece is back, I can’t complain
That peace is back, no sad refrain
That piece is back, I feel alive again

My new best friend is there for me
Whenever I need him
I just press play and there he is
Crawling through my skin
Track Name: To Weather Or Not
No I could not believe the rain
And yeah that heat was super strange
Yo I can’t believe I’m saying this
But can we please just get down to business?

I also caught the news forecast
This year seems pretty close to last
You know I think last time we talked
You found some reason the weather sucked

There’s no sense ignorin’
We got lots in common
Hey how are ya doin’
Crazy weather we’re havin’

I can’t remember last time I tried
To fill your shoes or empathize
You’re just like me on the other side
Of faux wood table under big blue sky

There’s no sense ignorin’
We got lots in common
Hey how are ya doin’
Crazy weather we’re havin’

Crazy weather
We are having
Crazy weather...

I’ve seen before and will again
Low pressure moves and I’m scratchin’
my head’s up in the cloudy sky
Got me guessin’ where how and why

On Earth I’m in here talking insincere
Pretending to care about what’s out there
And acting all surprised
Water comes from sky

Then sun makes it dry it’s seventy-five
In your office hive where you go to survive
So let’s talk about our boring lives
and our pretty vacant wives
Track Name: Stupid Shit
There’s nothing else besides death & glory
Drop the needle on "Police Story"

We find meaning in stupid places
Show me your pain and both your faces

Don’t take back that stupid comment
Dumb-ass phrases that you augment

Next time we meet I’ll punch your face in
All yer bullshit I’ll be erasin’
