Because I know that as hard as the pendulum swings one way It will swing the other, so I'm still working to be the best version of me But now I need some time, some time to recover I'm still a loser and I have lost my self respect But I ain't giving up on anything that I havent given up on yet So I'll, take some time to discover, or take a different lover Oh, its just that I can't see me not taking this too far So live your life out loud, with glee And be the best version that you can be Don't ever feel that the pendulum's stuck one way Its just a cloudy day

Around a quarter past nine I downed a bottle of booze You got me playin' for keeps, you got me playin' to lose Later that night I slept an hour or two And now I'm going to work And now I'm singin' the blues Say your prayers and sing Although I'll miss you more than words could ever say I've surmised that I'll be better off I'm better off without you anyway Now I'm pulling into work about ten minutes late The boss says I'm in a psychological state "Why the hell is the coffee machine broke?!" 'Cause I'm just tryin' to pour a cup and it goes up in smoke Say your prayers and sing Although I'll miss you more than words could ever say I've surmised that I'll be better off I'm better off without you All the nights I've psyched myself out of a restful night of sleep Oh all the days I spent reliving past mistakes, and I've made mistakes I hear your soothing voice call, "Pat its fine, you're an alright sort of guy" But I just hope you know how hard I really try Around a quarter past nine I downed a bottle of booze You got me playin' for keeps, you got me playin' to lose Later that night I slept an hour or two And now I'm going to work And now I'm singin' the blues

Tow The Line 04:14
I met a troubled woman over New York City bay Before I could say anything she almost slipped away I asked her for the time, she took a sip of cabernet Cause neither her or I knew if tomorrow was today But oh, she proved me wrong Oh, before I knew she had gone And left me on my own so far away I met a troubled woman over New York City bay Before I could say anything she almost slipped away I asked her for the time, she took a sip of cabernet Cause neither her or I knew if tomorrow was today Oh, so move along Oh, epiphany so prolonged Although you're worried trust me kid, you're gunna turn out fine You'll learn to let things go but you know you gotta tow the line You're nobel, selfless but your goals you gotta redefine So do whats right for you but you know you gotta tow the line I blamed myself for the horrors That sent me in mayday panic introspective disarray It drove into my psyche so I locked myself away And even if there was no cause to let myself decay I would dig, dig, dig until I unearthed every grave Oh, she made me strong Oh, she even liked my lame songs Although you're worried trust me kid, you're gunna turn out fine You'll learn to let things go but you know you gotta tow the line You're nobel, selfless but your goals you gotta redefine So do whats right for you but you know you gotta tow the line Although you're worried trust me kid, you're gunna turn out fine You'll learn to let things go but you know you gotta tow the line You're nobel, selfless but your goals you gotta redefine So do whats right for you but you know you gotta tow the line

Trouble on the homefront, my baby's mad at me Goin' down to the old saloon to have a beer or three And its alright, and its alright She knows where to find me, shows up after dark I put my nickel in that jukebox and my baby starts to rock And its alright, and its alright Pullin' up to the driveway, my suitcase at the door I guess its not a bad idea to drive around some more And its alright, and its alright She knows where to find me, shows up by the lake I get to pickin' on my ol' guitar and my baby starts to shake And its alright, and its alright She told me to get lost again, but she knows where I go (Yeah!) Trouble on the homefront, my baby's mad at me Goin' down to the old saloon to drink with boys like me And its alright, and its alright She knows where to find me, shows up in a rage I pound a few brews with my good ol' boys Now we're tearing up the stage And its alright, and its alright She told me to get lost again, and she knows where I go and its alright, and its alright Yeah baby, yeah baby And its alright Yeah baby, yeah!

Ol' Dan Tucker was a fine old man He washed his face in a frying pan He combed his hair with a wagon wheel And died of a tooth ache in his heel Get out the way, Ol' Dan Tucker You're too late to get your supper Suppers gone and dinners-a cookin' And Ol' Dan Tucker's just standin' there lookin' Ol' Dan Tucker coming to town Riding a billy goat and leading a hound The hound dog barked and the billy goat jumped And Ol' Dan Tucker fell straddlin' a stump Get out the way, Ol' Dan Tucker You're too late to get your supper Suppers gone and dinners-a cookin' And Ol' Dan Tucker's just standin' there lookin' I come to town the other night to hear a noise and see the fight The watchmens feet was a-runnin' around Cryin' Ol' Dan Tuckers a-comin' to town Get out the way, Ol' Dan Tucker You're too late to get your supper Suppers gone and dinners-a cookin' And Ol' Dan Tucker's just standin' there lookin' Ol' Dan Tucker was a fine old man He washed his face in a frying pan He combed his hair with a wagon wheel And died of a tooth ache in his heel Get out the way, Ol' Dan Tucker You're too late to get your supper Suppers gone and dinners-a cookin' And Ol' Dan Tucker's just standin' there lookin'

I'm feeling shamelessly sadistic in the final throws of day If you don't want some bad news then you best not walk my way Cause I know where he goes when he claims he's feeling indisposed I do believe you know it well That karmas caught you by the tail You cling to love like its your personal chain mail He's got a lot of nerve and he's every bit that you deserve So if you don't want bad news Don't walk my way He's got a long list of white lies His true intentions not so masterfully disguised But darling I ain't bitter though I just thought that you ought to know He's got you caught up in his spell That karmas caught you by the tail You cling to love like its your personal chain mail He's got a lot of nerve and he's every bit that you deserve So if you don't want bad news Don't walk my way That karmas caught you by the tail You cling to love like its your personal chain mail He's got a lot of nerve and he's every bit that you deserve So if you don't want bad news Don't walk my way

A great darkness makes its way to the forefront of my mind The greatest darkness that I've ever faced alive Oh, you took my hand You looked me square in the face and said, "one day you'll understand" You said, "the sun will still shine" I sneak a smile when you cross my mind And even still its crystal clear that the world keeps turning Even when you're not here Oh, and all of the times when I was too scared to say you were right You were right, you were right, here A man of courage is a man who has strength for his kin Despite the ailments that plague him he is stronger than sin Oh, you taught me to withstand I was a scared little boy with a hole in his heart And a soul to align You said, "the sun will still shine" I sneak a smile when you cross my mind And even still its crystal clear that the world keeps turning Even when you're not here Oh, and all of the times when I was too scared to say you were right You were right, you were right, here A cold winter lies ahead, so they tell me This fervent summer nearly scorched my resolve So when the winter comes I will build a fire A fire to commemorate all that made you, you An old friend walks with me to the shadow of deaths door His head held high with a smile as he sinks into the floor Oh, and now I understand You're still here in the warmth of the sun, On the cape cod shores and Connecticut pine You said, "the sun will still shine" I sneak a smile when you cross my mind And even still its crystal clear that the world keeps turning Even when you're not here Oh, and all of the times when I was too scared to say you were right You were right, you were right, here

Johnny wasn't born yesterday but still he plays the fool Mary was a little lost they said but still she keeps her cool He never told that girl what he meant When he said, "to an extent" Johnny watched all his days pass him by as he planned to make his move Mary longed for the day that would come When theres nothing left to prove She never told that boy her intent When she left, away she went into the sunset she rides Lost, he mourned He looked back to that farmhouse and he followed her tracks It was something left unsaid, left stewing in his head He looked back to that farmhouse and away he rode Into the sunset he rides Johnny wasn't born yesterday but still he plays a fool Mary was a little lost they said but still she keeps her cool She never told that boy her intent When she left, away she went Into the sunset she rides

Jester 03:29
Its early morning, I'm awake with a start The days just starting but its falling apart Another night spent with this savage routine, foreseeably unforseen And its just so, its anything but easy simple and stark Like throwing stones into a lake in the dark Like chasing the old ripple marks I couldn't help but think hey, what a waste You got that something I can never replace But now we'll watch ourselves renew Still theres something about you that I can't keep locked away You got me singing, hey And now I'm thinking I'm a fool But I don't want to be a jester I just want to make you my queen But I don't want to steal your laughter So I'll resign to say what I mean And Its just so, a tired tantalizing shot in the dark Whats worse than missing though is hitting your mark To find that you're missing the spark I couldn't help but think hey, what a waste You got that something I can never replace But now we'll watch ourselves renew Still theres something about you that I can't keep locked away You got me singing, hey Now every night I feel I'm losing this fight in this illimitable cold war I broke down cause I can't overstate anymore The damage is worn

I see stars arranged, I see patterns in the rain I see signs in shadows on the wall I see stars arranged going in and out of phase Its enough to make you think That a night like this cannot just be another And its something that I just cannot place Although I'll be okay its not enough And winter, winter came and brought with it a white wash A sheet of snow to wash away your good will intentions That you'll come to desecrate, its not hard to relate When you're the spitting fucking image of all the things you hate But please don't take this song to heart And please don't tear yourself apart Cause you're just scared of feeling overused And you're just scared of feeling like you always do And youre' just scared, but cross my heart we'll make it through And you're just scared Because you know that I am too
