Track Name: A Sinking Feeling
you say "we don't have much in common"
that I'm way too old
and I've been betting against myself
but I don't mind hearing it from you

So suggest something
that I already know
Break off your shy shell
I'd rather not drink alone

a glass in hand ain't much comfort
without a talking voice
you can strangle on an argument
without a convincing point
you say "we don't have much in common"
that I'm way too old
and I know something's up I can feel it
but I'd rather hear it from you.

I gotta feeling that we're both gonna lose in this.
Track Name: Mos Eisley Beach
Congratulations!
I'm really glad you came back.
Got things to say before you unpack.
It's really easy with all your old friends here and cash in hand every night gets you a lot of beer.
You're gonna find out nothing ever changes.
Before your eyes your window starts to disappear.
Bad knees drowned out with regret.

If you're running from anything, it will find you here.
And if you think it won't happen to you, look around.

Hey man, meet me at the bar. Let's celebrate.
Made lots of tip and I didn't even work late.
Is Jenny working? Bring some blow so she'll give me head.
I got the kids so if I fuck her can I use your bed?
Remember when we said we had to get away?
Man, we were crazy. There's a party here everyday.
Sometimes I think what could have been...

I've wasted everything.
Don't listen to me, I'm wasted.
Track Name: Parody of a Parody
Is this the place to be when you start losing steam?
My dad says to me,
"stop living a boy's dream.
You gotta be a little bit more serious you're almost thirty.
Turn your heartbeat down, let energy run out, drop
romance for anyone willing to settle down, stop reading
into shit and over-thinking everything."

"Your aspirations are a waste of time
In a couple of years you won't have anything left to prove
because you're a

Parody of a Parody
it's no longer a comedy
when your family tree runs out of leaves"

"When you drink so much, you invite the corrupt
you're making pretzels out of perfectly good sourdough
don't let the economy drag you down with it.
Turn your heartbeat down, let energy run out, drop
romance for anyone willing to settle down, stop reading
into shit and over-thinking everything."
