Track Name: For Will
In memory of Will Fridlin 1979-2015
Track Name: Exit The Circle
There you go again
Conjuring up old flames
Old friends and old names
Insects who got away
The shoulda coulda world
Gotta blow it up tonight
You’re gonna meet someone
Brand new to your life

Endless hamster wheels
Recycled past romance
Rotating dead seeds in unusable ground
They never stood a chance
The view’s in front of you
Keep your eyes pointing forward
Forget about over your shoulder
That scenery has gone by

And exit the circle
You will find a love like you never loved before
Exit the circle
Think of the pain – think of the pain no more
Exit the circle
Remember the past and know when to let it go
Exit the circle
He’s not coming home

Throw those playing cards
Don’t deal a new hand
Play a whole different game
Not meant to stay the same
Breathing in fresh air
Veins full of new blood
You had to say “enough”
No more round and round
Don’t search anymore

Don’t call anymore
Don’t try to reach him anymore
It’s not the chapter that’s over
The whole book is over
You cannot reach him anymore
Track Name: Xmas Song
It’s Christmas again
January sneaks in
Days of my past I want to come back
Wondered where they had been

But just like a Christmas song
You stay with me all year long
You’re everywhere I go
In everything I do
I’m never without you

Winter nights are so cold
A warm hand to hold
I now understand how my wonderland
It never was gone

Cause just like a Christmas song
You stay with me all year long
You’re everywhere I go
In everything I do
I will always love you

And I love my Tampa
And I love New York
You are everywhere – you are everywhere
And I love Chicago
I love San Francisco
We’re everywhere – we are everywhere

And just like a Christmas song
You stay with me all year long
You’re everywhere I go
In everything I do
I’ll never forget you

And I look up
Now I know where to point it to
And so much love
Now I know where to point it to
Track Name: When I Was 19
Country road in a station wagon
Her plaid dress and my favorite jeans
Never thought about getting older
Never thought about getting older
Pretty people and their indiscretions
Puzzle pieces that never fit
Never thought about getting older
Never thought about getting older

Stop that clock I don’t think I wanna go
Time keeps moving and it’s never slow

When I was 19
When I was 19
Still in love with the world
So in love with the world

In exile from the cold
Peter and I were inseparable
What I’d do for another chance
For a drink and a dance
New York boys with Florida dreams
This town it’s been damn good to me
You know that a friend is good
Don’t care if you’re in a bad mood

Thinking about Little Will speeding down
I-20 towards downtown
Oh the months and years
They won’t slow down

When I was 19
When I was 19
Still in love with the world
So in love with the world

Station wagon’s gone
Anne’s dress in rags now
And Troy hates his job
Like Rose hates her kids
And me I’m too calm
I’m way too comfortable
I wanna feel alive again
And I wanna fly again
Like when I was 19…
Track Name: Compulsions (feat Entropy)
You made it through day one
You made it through day one
You made it through day one
You made it through day two
You made it through day two
Hell yeah good for you
You made it through a week
You made it through a week
Or two as we speak
A center has been found
So has solid ground

But your compulsions ate you nice and slow
They gotta go gotta go
And your compulsions ate you nice and slow
They gotta go gotta go gotta

Pushed and shoved and then you had enough
Oversexed and underloved
Bought and sold such a heavy load
Did those bastards leave you cold?
Walk in sunlight see the starlight
Feel your golden shine
There’s no way you’re getting old
You’re getting finer jet airliner!

Repeat Chorus

If you take it take it take it nice and slow
No undertow undertow
If you take it take it take it you gotta know
Your compulsions will go

RAP

When Jane couldn’t marry Jane
But they could both buy guns
Let that damage come undone
Track Name: Across The Bridge
You know you want me
And you know you’ve got it going on
Wanna love you and I think that I could
Not gonna fake it like all the other times before
Gonna do it like I think that I should
You got it going on – got it going on
You’ve got it going on
Going on baby

Not feeling any ordinary kinda love
Nothing will stop me from spinning around
The way you kiss me underneath the shining moonlight
I think I’m in love
And oh yea touch me baby

Drive across the bridge
I gotta get to you
I just wanna touch you
And do what lovers do

Asleep on my shoulder
Yellow lines speed by
The clouds perform magic
In the Florida sky
I love trains they don’t got no town
You’re a lot like them
No one can hold you down
I wanna get to you – wanna get to you
I gotta get to you – get to you baby

I need love…

I’m ready to roll
Speeding down the road
I think I’m in love
I can’t get enough
Track Name: Forest Fires
Hope you’re out tonight
Wanna take you home
Get you all alone
Build you a throne
Relieve your Belgium stress
Get undressed
Relieve all your stress
Such a pretty mess

Like a forest fire
You really heat me up
Like a forest fire
You really get me hot

No one will ever know
I’ll look if you show
The one I love is gone
Let’s get it on
And my life’s a mess
Get undressed
You really turn me on
Let’s get it on

You get me so hot
And I don’t wanna stop
Keep my body going
Til we’re on top
Track Name: Facebook Pictures
The scene was Brooklyn New York
They look so young and so cool
Emmy’s got her party dress on
She’s got her Lena down good
At a dinner party
Vintage sweaters on
They’re dressed to the tens
Wish I was there with my friends

They’re having fun
I want it all

The scene was in L.A.
They’re VIP
Alyx in two foot heels
Cocaine deals
A Z-list party
No room for ideals
They’re getting banged by the lens
Wish I was there with my friends

(Bend and snap you can take it all back
Pose and post – see who likes you the most)

In Portland Oregon
At a fashion show
Laurel’s got her bedazzle on
With a bearded boy I know
From every angle I see
Bourgeois anarchy
Alone in my bed
Wish I was there with my friends

They’re having fun in their Facebook pictures
I want it all like in Facebook pictures

(Having fun and I want it – I want it all…)
Track Name: Flip Flops
This boat ain’t much – my tarp in tatters
But cruising down coast towards the sunset is all that matters
Don’t judge me darling – sit down on the sand
There’s still adventure left in this gin and tonic land
I’m not the one you’re looking for
I’m the place where you belong
I may not have the answers
And I don’t mind being wrong

Perfection’s for wastrels
Planning is for fools
The tide is always changing
To hell with all the rules
When I get angry I take it to the beach
Mr Jack Daniels has got some things to teach
I can’t promise riches
I’m one hell of a time
I may not do the right thing
But my heart is always kind

Walk a mile in my flip flops
Bring me back a beer
Walk a mile in my flip flops
Bring me back a beer
Baby come back here…

Falling off my bar stool
Again I’m at your feet
I always take the long road
But I know every street
When storms start coming
I hoist my beer up high
To the tiki bar goddess
In the tequila sky
Could it be that I’m a fool?
Might it be that I’m a clown?
Should be’s are for gamblers
Tonight we’ve got the crown

Walk a mile in my flip flops
Bring me back a beer
Walk a mile in my flip flops
Bring me back a beer
Baby come back here
Track Name: Trouble Toys
Toy Camaro by the side of the road
Too drunk to park on his own
Black paint shining in the sun
Left when the game was done
Toy camera with black and white film
Best admired when silent and still
Images burn out the sun
Left when the game was done

Trouble toys
Achingly beautiful
Trouble toys
Splintered and beautiful

Toy monster at a rock and roll show
Smash buildings find no home
Spotlight on a deadly face
Leave without a trace

Toy train didn’t have any room
Too crowded and departed too soon
Forgiveness will come one day
When there’s no one left to play

So fun to play with
You can’t take ‘em home
(Don’t go…)
Track Name: Down And Up
I am driving in my car
My new car
I am laying in my bed
My new bed
I am working at my job
My new job
Good friends with a lot of soul
Let’s glow low

I’ve been up
I’ve been down
I’ve never been the kind to hang around
Back and forth
Up and down
I’ve always been the kind to hold my ground
So I stood back up

Grenades on my list
I’ve been kissed and I’ve been dissed
Discarded and betrayed
I’ve been played and I’ve been laid
The love of my dreams won’t call me back
Tonight there’ll be no bomb attack
Good friends and some soul
Pizza beer and rock and roll

I didn’t wanna live my life without you
But I stood back up
I didn’t want to play this show without you
But I stood back up
I didn’t wanna sleep one night without you
But I stood back up
The show goes on without you honey
Yea I stood back up

Down and up down and up
Life keeps taking me down and up
Down and up down and up
And I’m not one to give up
Track Name: Still Golden
Worn down and eroded
Full of rust and corroded
How did you become
A fraction of what was
No matter how you fade
You’re still golden
No matter what they say
You’re gold

How about forgetting the times when you felt done wrong?
How about forgiving the times when you were not strong?
How about making each sunrise a brand new scene?
How about loving your dirty so much you’re clean?

No matter what cards you played
You’re still golden
No matter how they hate
You’re gold
No matter what happened I love you
And you’re still golden
When I look at the sky
I see gold.

(Hold on…)
Track Name: Running Infinitely
What if there’s no after life?
No spirits or ghosts?
The possibility
You won’t rejoin me
Destroys me the most
The mysteries of God and death
The way that I miss your breath
I have to believe
Your phantom’s with me
Just to keep me warm

I’m running infinitely
I’m running infinitely
When it’s time to go
I really hope you show
Up beside me

What if we’re are all just
Germs and bacteria
Never gonna stay
Dwelling for another day in hysteria
Part of me doesn’t sleep at night
The way your shadow holds me tight
I had to believe
That someday it’ll be alright

I’m running infinitely
I’m running infinitely
When my time is done
I hope that you’re the one
Beside me

I get the feeling you’re next to me
I get the feeling you’re inside of me
Our time comes and goes so fast
And then I go crazy
Track Name: Technicolor
All the sleepless nights
Dark ages and meteorites
The value of mistakes
Rebuilding from earthquakes

No more black and white
No more black and white
I’m in color
Technicolor

Memories of rages
Blank pages empty stages
The importance of a fail
And those who survived to tell the tale

No more black and white
No more black and white
I’m in color
Technicolor

No more black and white
No more black and white
I’m in color
Technicolor
Blue skies
And technicolor
Track Name: Never Too Much Love
God I’m lucky I met you
I wish I felt more stable than I do
I often feel I’m in outer space
But when you sing in your car I felt I found my place
I love trains and the speed they go
A backpack and a jump we’re in Mexico
I wanna rest my mouth on top of your head
But I think you’re happy on your side of the bed
Don’t let these moments die

There’s never too much love

Asleep on my shoulder yellow lines speed by
And the clouds perform magic in the Florida sky
The best feeling I’ve ever had
I cry a lot lately and it’s not because I’m sad
I love trains they ain’t got no town
You’re a lot like them no one can hold you down
I really like it when you sleep here
But the cold night after is what I fear
Don’t let these moments die

There’s never too much love
And I can’t wait til I can give it to you

It’s all good…that’s what you’d say right now
It’s all good…I know that’s what you’d say right now
Track Name: Can I Have Now?
You claim that you can’t love me
Claim you can’t love anyone
Repeat that we’re only friends
And that you hug everyone
It’s a wavy world out there
Turbulence and despair
Love playing with your hair

Felt shipwrecked without a home
And then I was less alone
Crystals and refracting fears
Sometimes you disappear
The way I feel when I’m with you
A calmer shade of blue
Driving all night to find you

And if you won’t promise me forever
If you won’t promise me next week
Can I have now?
Can I have right now?

In still water for a time
No undercurrents to undermine
The full moon or soft skin
Sometimes you let me in
If your clouds go in remission
Could you give yourself permission
To admit that I am warm?

Sometimes you shine like selenite
And we stay up all night
Sometimes you really suck
It seems you don’t give a fuck
Sometimes you drive me crazy
Sometimes you amaze me
At the end of the day
You pull me in
Or push me away
I wish you’d stay
