Track Name: Everybody (Take What You Can Take)
When I was young my love
Was like a loaded gun
It shook me to my core
And left me on the floor

I gave up the knife
I’m so sick of time
It’s infuriating
But at least I tried.

Every morning
Everybody
Shakes a little
Everybody
Tries to make it lighter

Every morning
Everybody
Shakes a little
Everybody
Tries to make it right

A long winded sigh
A precedent to why
It could be for the taking
But is it yours or mine?

Everybody knows
This thing that I know
That the war is over
That the good guys lost

Every morning
Everybody
Shakes a little
Everybody
Tries to make it lighter

Every morning
Everybody
Shakes a little
Everybody
Tries to make it right

It's us and them
I am tired
They are liars
Take what you can take.
Track Name: Dogs and Men
Just keep your head straight and tear off your face
If you take too long you may lose your place
Dogs are howling at the window
Men are prowling from one hundred feet up

You know you don’t stand a chance
What’s left to lose but a bitter end?

Time is passing by, you’re moving in place
You look each night to see what’s erased
Dogs are prowling from one hundred feet up
Men are howling at your window

You know you don’t stand a chance
What’s left to lose but a bitter end?

What happens next?
Track Name: Fine
It’s a tender age to feel renewed
I’m trying not to see things through
So many things I can’t undo
The lapse of time is nothing new

And I’d say it’s all right

All this spin won’t twist me around
There’s no time to feel let down
It’s an all consuming sound
Running through this whole damn town

And I’d say it’s all right
Track Name: I Don't Really Wanna Care No More
I don’t really want to care no more
Black and blue you know I feel so sore.
But I’m not a broken man.
Feel some love and then I want some more.

I begin to see the light
I may never get it right
I try tonight.
I try tonight.

Tread too lightly and you lose the floor.
Agitated and you lose the Lord.
Are we really going where?
I can’t relax until you lock the door.

I begin to see the light
I may never get it right
I try tonight.
I try tonight.
Track Name: Moon
The moon was round in the purple sky
The fate of everybody hangs in the night
But I was all right.

A little girl living on our street
And everyone I’ll never meet
They don't mean nothing to me.

And I was all right.

We can feel it down deep sometimes
Even the people that highjack flights
We're all gonna die.

I think of Maggie dying in her bed
When she was still just a kid
It doesn’t matter she’s still dead.

And I was all right.
