Track Name: Don't Disappear
I'm tired of looking over my shoulder
I've lost my mind as I've grown older
But idle hands are the tools of the devil
So I put my hands on you
And no on knows what we'll discover
Something beautiful and new
And while I'm thinking of you
It's all becoming clear
I've made up my mind
I don't want you to disappear
And while I'm lying awake
with you here in my bed
I can't sleep
I'd rather make love to you instead
I'm tired of looking over my shoulder
I've lost my mind as I've grown older
But idle hands are the tools of the devil
So I put my hands on you
And no on knows what we'll discover
Maybe something beautiful and true
And while I'm thinking of you
It's all becoming clear
I've made up my mind
I don't want you to disappear
And while I'm lying awake
with you here in my bed
I can't sleep
I'd rather make love to you instead
Make love to you instead
Rather make love to you instead
I'm tired of looking over my shoulder
I've lost my mind as I've grown older
Don't you know I'm tired of looking over my shoulder
I've lost my mind as I've grown older
Track Name: Life is Expensive
Life is expensive when you're always poor
And no one remembers to settle a score
But you, my friends, see a part of me
That I killed long ago
Life is expensive when you lose all your friends
And no one remembers to ask how you've been
But you, my friends, see a part of me
That I killed long ago
Life is expensive
Life is expensive
Life is expensive
Life is expensive
Life is expensive when you're always broke
You can't help but think that it's all just a joke
But you, my friends, see a part of me
That I killed long ago
Life is expensive
Life is expensive
Life is expensive
This life is expensive
You're life is expensive
Track Name: Barbed Wire
Lost inside your world of dreams
And I can't breathe tonight
This wall you've built is to high to climb
I can't get over
All the times you said you had
The love for me, well now I need it
I can't go back and make it right
You've got barbed wire around your heart
And it's wound so tightly
You've got barbed wire around your heart
It's cutting through me
I can't understand what you need
I'm drunk and jaded
Like a pair of thrift store jeans
I'm cracked and faded
And no that the wounds won't heal
I cover it up again
This blood red road that you've paved
Won't lead me home
You've got barbed wire around your heart
And it's wound so tightly
You've got barbed wire around your heart
It's cutting through me
You've got barbed wire around your heart
And it's wound so tightly
You've got barbed wire around your heart
It's cutting through me
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
You've got barbed wire around your heart
And it's wound so tightly
You've got barbed wire around your heart
It's cutting through me
Track Name: Flesh and Bone
Popping pills to kill the shakes
I'm doing what it takes
just to stumble through the day
(No one likes you anyway)
Now wouldn't you agree
a friend in need
is a friend you don't need

Just take it
This pain it
Resides inside your heart and soul
You'll never
Feel better
Because you're made of flesh and bone

Took a moment, watched my dreams
As they floated down the stream
Slowly vanished in the haze
Of a thousand yesterdays
Still don;t know what it means
(And know one hears you scream)

Just take it
This pain it
Resides inside your heart and soul
You'll never
Feel better
Because you're made of flesh and bone
