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.

Dogs and Men 02:47
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?

Fine 03:05
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

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.

Moon 03:59
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.
