MOON DOGS 02:48
I’ve worked my life for nothing, so it seems like It’s salt up in my veins, years full of bad dreams and if tears are what fills all the oceans well, honey, i’ve been crying sweet tooth erosion Well this life don’t want you ever coming back again No, this life don’t want you ever coming back again and the work was hard and the heartbreak saw no end Oh, this life don’t want you ever coming back again We’re taking turns swapping cigarettes let the ash full burn through your dress Oh, you and me we could swallow the world whole like an expensive drink, a little buzz to get home Well this life don’t want you ever coming back again No, this life don’t want you ever coming back again and the work was hard and the heartbreak saw no end Oh, this life don’t want you ever coming back again

ST. MICHAEL 02:56
I bought a candle for Saint Michael In a grocery store in Ridgewood, Queens I wouldn't call myself a Catholic but anyone who slays a dragon is cool by me It reminds me of where I come from Watching over me and my drunk friends It reminds me of where I come from Watching over me and my drunk friends Yeah j'ai acheté une bougie pour Saint Michel Dans un magasin à Ridgewood, Queens Je ne me dirai pas vraiment catholique Mais quelqu'un qui tue un dragon est plutôt cool pour moi It reminds me of where I come from Watching over me and my drunk friends It reminds me of where I come from Watching over me and my drunk friends Oh, San Miguel will figure it out All the candle stores are selling out A little light in the heart of hell Oh Saint Michel, oh Saint Michel It reminds me of where I come from Watching over me and my drunk friends It reminds me of where I come from Watching over me and my drunk friends It reminds me of where I come from Watching over me and my drunk friends It reminds me of where I come from Watching over me and my drunk friends

NAKED 03:17
Naked running through my garden Nettles sting and roses cut your cheek Blood runs like the juice of forbidden fruit Uh huh, what a sticky situation Fell down to hell with you Clambered out with minor lacerations If dying young is the life we choose, Maybe I will see you soon It ain't sleeping when I'm dreaming of you It ain't sleeping when I'm dreaming of you It ain't sleeping when I'm dreaming of you It ain't sleeping when I'm dreaming of you You're naked running through my head My favorite game to play all alone It's been a long fucking year, maybe more Still you stay unclothed (2x) It ain't sleeping when I'm dreaming of you It ain't sleeping when I'm dreaming of you It ain't sleeping when I'm dreaming of you It ain't sleeping when I'm dreaming of you

DARK DISCO 02:51
Oh disco, hiding in the coat room Getting high on a thief's treasure trove Found apartment keys to the upper east Making sure there are no ghosts here Pretty boy in a summer dress, Shaken down for a loose cigarette Ah, it's dark till the weekend on a July evening Sweating on the pavement Bloody nose to the concrete Oh, she's working on her entrance Smiling on the edge of a knife Getting lost in your temporary life Like a tear in your haunted heart Blue like your new apartment, Walking with you always felt like dancing Moving with you always felt like dancing Oooo, like Chicago house, Oh, I'll taste cocaine in a bloody mouth Party like the end of a light Twitch in your eye at the end of every night Walking with you always felt like dancing Bodies moving like a motel room Tell you that I love you... Well, I was stoned out of my mind Did I tell you that I love you? Did you come alone? A new tattoo on your forearm Sun rise from a black light blue I found heaven in a basement too Getting lost in your temporary life Like a tear in your haunted heart Blue like your new apartment, Walking with you always felt like dancing Moving with you always felt like dancing Oooo, like Chicago house, Oh, I'll taste cocaine in a bloody mouth Party like the end of a light Twitch in your eye at the end of every night Walking with you always felt like dancing

NEW TRICKS 03:05
I met you at the worst time like a misguided dream come true I bet it all on the wrong dog But you best believe I'd give you everything I had for one more chance to win it back One more lucky strike, one more lucky hand, one more lucky night Give me one more shot Give me one more shot, You won't believe it Rolling on the ground underneath the bottle I was dreaming in But I met you at the worst time When I didn't have a dime to spare Like the comforting heat from the warmth of a gun Running out of luck, running out of time But this old dog knows new tricks New tricks, new tricks New tricks, new tricks New tricks, new tricks With a face like that, you must always drink for free Well, I'm hard for a mother to love but you said I was pretty Like sugar and wine in my veins But I'm a broken, broken man It's hard to explain and harder to change Give me one more shot Give me one more shot, You won't believe it Rolling on the ground underneath the bottle I was dreaming in But I met you at the worst time When I didn't have a dime to spare Like the comforting heat from the warmth of a gun Running out of luck, running out of time But this old dog knows new tricks New tricks, new tricks New tricks, new tricks New tricks, new tricks

NEW SPRING 01:12
How she ever noticed me, I'll never know Living like an echo I was bouncing off the floors Looking for a New Spring, I found her and I knew what it felt like again.

GREYHOUND 02:49
Oh, we met on a cross country bus The rest stop lit by your cigarette at dusk Might have met you on a cross country bus but ashes to ashes and dust to dust Oh, we kissed on a country bus holding on to nothing and no one behind us Oh, we might have kissed like a blurry dream in the backseat I’m coming back to you on a Greyhound to hell I’m coming back to you on a Greyhound to hell I lost my mind on a cross country bus King of the Road packing it up I’ve seen it all from the Western skies to the Holy Ghost watching over New York Nobody, nowhere to go You were never there, I was all alone Fell in love on a Greyhound bus Fell in love, fell in love I’m coming back to you on a Greyhound to hell I’m coming back to you on a Greyhound to hell

JOYRIDER 02:51
Broke my teeth on my handlebars Rainbow shiner shining brighter than the stars Starting fights no one thought we could win Setting cop cars on fire in Brooklyn This might be our last summer This might be our last summer This might be our last summer This might be our last summer Oooo I wanna feel the end of the world That’s alright, I’m over it Oooo I wanna play my way through the rapture Close out the old guard Oooo I’m jumping through the flames again And again and again and again I’m jumping through the flames again And again and again and again Found peace in a joyride No tears in the wind to cry Oh we slept through the first bloom Empty parks in the afternoon This might be our last summer This might be our last summer This might be our last summer This might be our last summer Oooo I wanna feel the end of the world That’s alright, I’m over it Oooo I wanna play my way through the rapture Close out the old guard Oooo I’m jumping through the flames again And again and again and again I’m jumping through the flames again And again and again and again Jump into the flames again and again and again and again Jump into the flames again and again and again and again Jump into the flames again and again and again and again Jump into the flames again and again and again and again

ECHO 03:16
You were dancing like I wasn't watching you an observer in the back of the living room Weaving through the furniture, runaway, I knew I loved her You were dancing like I wasn't watching you at a partying making out in the bathroom Warm on the cool tile floors Runaway, I knew I loved her I just want to be an echo with you Two steps ahead I just want to be an echo with you Dancing through my head I just want to be an echo with you Two steps ahead I just want to be an echo with you Dancing through my head I remember it like it was yesterday If I ran into you I wouldn't know what to say It's not stealing if I gave it away Runaway, I knew I loved her All those wild countries been ripped asunder All the bad decisions will live forever There is no dancing in that living room Runaway, I knew I loved her I just want to be an echo with you Two steps ahead I just want to be an echo with you Dancing through my head I just want to be an echo with you Two steps ahead I just want to be an echo with you Dancing through my head

MARATHON 03:09
I was raised in that Northern darkness Like punches thrown under exit signs Finding love when the sun forgets to shine Learned to the feel in the freezing rain Drunk and stoned like I'm sixteen again Oh these little fears they don't mean a goddamn thing Oh, I'm losing my fucking mind but it's a long race and I'm not sure why but I'm running, I'm running like a marathon star and this old broken heart has gotten me pretty damn far Melting Marches like spring loves to loom Feeling hopeful in a sedentary room I've been feeling so much dread, I can't really feel it anymore Trained by heartbreak and distance too I've learned to cope with this by writing little songs for you For me? Who knows but I'm breathing, I'm breathing Like a marathon star and this old broken heart has gotten me pretty damn far
