Track Name: Come Down
Everytime that I Come Down
Everytime that my face hits the ground
Everytime that I lose myself, I'm right back here with you

Everytime that I won't sit still
Everytime that I can't control
Everytime that I hit a wall, it's cause I don't have a clue

Oh, when I was a little boy
I never understood, why you never gave up
But now I know the reason that you never had the means to
It was just something stuck in your soul
Track Name: New Blood
It's always the same
I always see you coming around here
Looking for somebody to blame

Somebody new
Who hasn't been around the block, yea
Somebody not quite like you

New Blood
What are you afraid of?
Of some New Blood?
What are you afraid of?

Nothing to do
Let's get drunk and tell each other secrets
It's your choice, these last days of your youth

You say that it's real
So much better when the sun goes down, yea
When the money goes in, tell me, how does it feel?

New Blood
What are you afraid of?
Afraid of some New Blood?
What are you afraid of?

We're New Blood
Track Name: I Wanna Peel
"Well, I'll just tell you what you want to hear.
I'm gonna break your girlish fears.
I tried to get close, I couldn't get near.
If I tell you too much, well, baby, I'll get smeered."

I Wanna Peel!

I've been exceptionally neurotic
Nearly all of my life
And now it's time to show you what it means
When it burns one-thousand and one degrees

I Wanna Peel!

My days have been insufferable waiting
For that envelope to arrive
And I feel deep down inside of my mind
I've been hanging onto all of the light

I Wanna Peel!

Do you know what it's like to be addicted
to something that you never see?
Well, I've got fifty reasons why
you should just stop over tonight

I Wanna Peel!

Well I Wanna Peel with you.
Track Name: Losing Streak
Losing Streak
Losing Streak
Losing Streak
I'm on a Losing Streak

Well, I can't afford that
Nobody every gives me the time
I can't make anyone happy
Everybody says I'm behind

Losing Streak
Losing Streak
I keep on trying and trying
I'm on a Losing Streak

Well I spilled gin all over my cigarettes
My friends have moved on, but I can't forget
Can you give me a ride home?
I'm used to being alone

Losing Streak
Losing Streak
I keep on trying and trying
I'm on a Losing Streak

Well I can't find my keys cause I drank too much
My girlfriend left me, says I'm out of touch
Nobody ever invites me out
I just broke my forty ounce

Losing Streak
Losing Streak
I keep on trying and trying
I'm on a Losing Streak
Track Name: Kiss Off
There's only one thing I want
There's only one thing I need
There's only one thing I want
Let me tell ya, I want you

But when I went to get you a drink
I came back, and you must have split
So, next time that you see me, honey,
I'll be kissing someone elses lips

Life's not much fun
When you don't love anyone
Well this is what you told me
As you tried to kiss and hold me
Oh no!
Well, some of the things you do
Some things you say
They make me laugh, haha

Good night
Track Name: When You Grow Up
You say you wanna be somebody When You Grow Up
You say you wanna be somebody When You Grow Up
You tell me all the things you're thinking of
And you say you wanna be somebody When You Grow Up

Well all you do is sitting here, lying, crying
Watching all the bills multiply, you gotta
Get up and go
You gotta show all the people what you know
And when they say it's all been done you say
Man, I'm just trying to have some fun

You will never go back home again
You will never go back home again
You don't have any more family, no more friends
You will never go back home again

All you do is sitting here, lying, crying
Watching all the bills multiply, you gotta
Get up and go
You gotta show all the people what you know
And when they say it's all been done you say
Man, I'm just trying to have some fun

Hey you hear what happened to that guy Grant here last week?
Yea, dog food
That's what I heard
Hey, feel good all the time, right?! Yea!

You gotta
Get up and go
You gotta show all the people what you know
And when they say it's all been done you say
Man, I'm just trying to have some fun
Track Name: Back To Your Old Ways
I see you stumbling around
With your black shades on
Searching for your pride
Or whatever you can buy

The devil may care
But baby not you
You got a cruel attitue
Yea, it's a real lost art

Now you're Back To Your Old Ways joe
Sleeping on the streets again
Back To Your Old Ways joe
Sleeping on the streets again

Now you only use
Common sense
To get yourself out
In desperation

Well people think you're green
But baby, not me!
You got everything they crave
We've been young for a very long, long time

Back To Your Old Ways joe
Sleeping on the streets again
Back To Your Old Ways joe
Sleeping on the streets again

Changing bad habits
Some you never do
Now it's a struggle everyday
When you shock everyone that you meet

To you it's not alcohol
It's just some kind of medicine
It's like you're standing in a lake
Of burning gasoline

Back To Your Old Ways joe
Sleeping on the streets again
Back To Your Old Ways joe
Sleeping on the streets again

Oh I see you
You better cut that out!
Aww, you're Back To Your Old Ways again
Track Name: King of The Last Minute
I don't always do what I want to do
I don't always say what I mean to say
But what they say is true
I'm in love with you
I'm gonna hold you in my arms but
Not today

Cause I'm the King Of The Last Minute yea
I don't look back
I'm the King Of The Last Minute yea

Every time that I think about it
It drives me wild
The way you make my pockets shake
I always win
There's a rose tattoo over my heart
I'm a real wild child
I tried so hard but I can't escape
This place I'm in
