Track Name: 60 Punishing Minutes
Hear the noise, ears are ringin'
Think today that the birds stopped singing
Wind don't know where to blow
It's a hundred and one degrees of slow

No faith no love no sex no drug no hope
No religion could get us out of here
We all know how up and down life is

60 punishing minutes
60 punishing minutes I waited
60 punishing minutes of hell

Bumper to bumper, losing my drive
Fading like old bones on the hillside
Pollution, confusion fog up my head
I take a deep breath, count to ten

No twist no move no turn no groove
No backing up, no situation
Could be as sticky as this one here
We all know how short life can be

60 punishing minutes
60 punishing minutes I waited
60 punishing minutes of hell

No faith no love no sex no drug no hope
No religion could get us out of here
We all know how up and down life is
Track Name: She's Got Thorns
A princess in a pond of frogs
She won't kiss any of them
A goddess worshipped by the Gods
She don't believe in any of them

The essence of existence
She pretends to know
And watch the way things go
A fortune made, a fortune lost
She's got sixty cents left

She's got thorns holding up her crown
She rants and raves
She rushes around
But it's all right
She's a little uptight

She believes in love
But she don't like him
Unless he puts that red dress on
She walks through the roses
With a blue can of paint
Cause she likes violets

The essence of existence
She pretends to know
And watch the way things go
A fortune made, a fortune lost
She's got sixty cents left

She's got thorns holding up her crown
She rants and raves
She rushes around
But it's all right
She's a little uptight
Track Name: Psychometer
Got a reading, level in the red
Don't tell me--voices in your head
No one understands me
No one gets it!

Psychometer!
Psychometer!
Everyone's got thunder
Can't keep it inside
Everyone's got hunger
Swallow your pride

Got a reason, put it on the shelf
Medication --you can soothe yourself
Haven't got a good thing
Don't want any help

Psychometer!
Psychometer!
Everyone's got thunder
Can't keep it inside
Everyone's got hunger
Swallow your pride

You're such a hard nut
You're cracking me up
No way to know what
You're such a fruitcake
You leave a strange taste
Let go, I've had enough

Got mood swings
Can't keep contained
Burning narcissistic need
Measured by the grain
You don't know me anymore
Time to calibrate

Psychometer
Track Name: Too Much
Take the oil from the earth
Take a dime, change it's worth
You push so hard to get what
you've got coming
You speak a tangled alphabet
Grand illusions about life and death
Broken bottles fill your empty pockets

Too much, too much
You cost me way too much
You cost me way too much

Every touch leaves a scar
Conversation leads to war
Nothing left to do but turn the music up
Free passes and mistakes
Use the world to fuel heartache
Feel the beat of monkeys drumming in your head

Too much, too much
You cost me way too much
You cost me way too much

You'll pay, wake up one day
To find I'm priced out of your range
There's no more to get out of this
Or to give
Cause you cost me too much
Of my life and my sanity

Promises of changing ways
Falling off like rusted chains
Got the message left,
It's unbelievable

You're too much
You take from me
Too much
You cost me
Too much

You cost me way too much
Track Name: Dig Me Out
Dig me out, I fell in
Buried deep, I don't know when
You always be there, that's what you said
I fell in

Open wide that big black sky
I thought the lightning would start a fire
Twist my ankle on a snake
Didn't think I'd get through the day
All my friends in hibernation
I miss our reckless conversation
Don't leave me hanging in the wind
Don't leave me hanging

Dig me out I fell in
Buried deep I don't know when
I lost my step I lost my way
The water's deep I hold my breath
The bridge is broke I'm on the edge
You always be there, that's what you said
I fell in

This umbrella's inside out
Wind is shoving me around
And all the people on the street
They got their destinies
All I get's mixed up directions
God's hotel filled with complications
Hear me ringing every bell
Hear me ringing

Dig me out I fell in
Buried deep I don't know when
I lost my step I lost my way
The water's deep I hold my breath
The bridge is broke I'm on the edge
You always be there, that's what you said
I fell in
Track Name: I Like Lies
I like lies, so keep on talking
Those shifty eyes, that nonsense
I like your petty ways
Picking on people
Those little power plays

Greedy, grabby
So back stabby
Everything about you
Makes me feel so happy

Cool and wonderful
Sunshine by the handful
You become a shadow
Standing next to me
Sweet and grateful
Sugar by the mouthful
You become bitter
Standing next to me

I like fake, so keep on smiling
I see the hate between your teeth
I like you jealous
Little school girl
So cruel girl

Needy, nasty
Poison gassy
Everything about you
Makes me feel so classy

Cool and wonderful
Sunshine by the handful
You become a shadow
Standing next to me
Sweet and grateful
Sugar by the mouthful
You become bitter
Standing next to me
Track Name: Playing With Guns
You say it's all ok,
well now I'm cocked and loaded
Come on and get it honey
But don't get too close,
My steel's corroded

On a drive by taking aim
I'm so mad I'm spittin' bullets
You better run, son
The truth is your weapon now
You're using it to shoot me down

Oh you're killing me
But I'm not dying
You're filling me with lead
Oh life can be so mystifying
All I'm living for
I'm living for some more
Keep killing me again

I got a rocket launcher
Maybe you shouldn't come around no more
A target or a halo,
I'm not wearing either one
So get on, little doggie
So I'm asking you point blank
I want your arms of fire
Wrapped around me

Oh you're killing me
But I'm not dying
You're filling me with lead
Oh life can be so mystifying
All I'm living for
I'm living for some more
Keep killing me again
Track Name: Have A Nice Day
Got married in Vegas
Divorced in Reno
Should've caught the first plane out
Lost my cash at the casino
Drove across the USA
In a beat up Chevrolet
Tried to get my life on track
Didn't know I had it made

Hey hey, have a nice day
That's what they say that's what you get
Hey yeah, have a nice trip
In the end, you do what you do
You get what you get

Had to live in New York City
Got burned to a crisp
Headed to the Caribbean
Got stung by jellyfish
Sailed across the Atlantic
Really loved the London scene
Til' my little heart got broken
By a no good rocknroll queen

Hey hey, have a nice day
That's what they say that's what you get
Hey yeah, have a nice trip
In the end, you do what you do
You get what you get

Got another job,
Lost my temper in Japan
Ya know I don't remember
Think I got to Amsterdam
So the world keeps turning
And the four winds blow
It's a rat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat
Every where I go

Hey hey, have a nice day
That's what they say that's what you get
Hey yeah, have a nice trip
In the end, you do what you do
You get what you get
Track Name: I Can Forget You
I can forget you
Twenty times a day I do it
Mind over matter
Until the groove is worn right through

Someone's jamming up my zone
I got no flow I really wanna let go

Like a boomerang
A moth to the flame of the same old rerun
Erased and deleted
Pictures on my drive on my phone in my head
Don't look but I see them

Someone's jamming up my zone
I got no flow I really wanna let go

I gotta keep movin'
I gotta keep shakin'

Off the hook, off the line
Leave what's gone behind
Get unsynchronized
All alone and lost
Is still better off

I can forget you
I can forget you now
I can forget you
I can forget you now

Gotta keep movin'
I gotta keep shakin'
I can forget you now
Track Name: Jellyroll
I woke up thinking of you
There's no morning sun
My hunger's tangled up so wild
The day is on the run
The ceiling fan is turning
The sheets are on the floor
I dreamt we took a ride on the East side
Looking for a jellyroll

You leave me wanting nothing more
Than what I'm holding here
Don't get choose what we keep
Or what we lose
Look to the sky it's raining sugar
Too bad it's so good
I'd give it up if I could

You're my sweet tooth tiger
Stealing from the cookie jar
If you don't own up
I'm your buttercup
I'll stick right to your heart
Must be jelly 'cause jam don't shake
Honey won't ya give me that coffee cake

You leave me wanting nothing more
Than what I'm holding here
Don't get choose what we keep
Or what we lose
Look to the sky it's raining sugar
Too bad it's so good
I'd give it up if I could
