Track Name: So Many Things
Girl who you with?
Do you really want to be with him?
I've got that gift
If you sink then I'll make you swim
Whatever you want
I'll be here to write that list
so don't front on me
cuz I can see right through that

Cuz there are so many things I want with you
and if I asked, would you know what you should do?

Girl Jamaican me crazy when you're laying in my bed
maybe it's the way you're kissing me or how you flirt with me instead
Whatever the case could be, you're so talented
and if you move me right all night you might wake up in my bed

Cuz there are so many things I want with you
and if I asked, would you know what you should do?

So get with me
it will come so naturally
Come play with me
and I'll guarantee that you'll never leave
if it's just one night
know that you'll be by my side
cuz I am that guy
that knows how to make things right

Cuz there are so many things I want with you
and if I asked, would you know what you should do?
Cuz there are so many things I want with you
and if I asked, would you know what you should do?
Track Name: Big Time Actor
Well I wish that I was born in the 1930s
when life was simple and all the girls looked pretty
and I wish that I was a big time actor
All the girls would try to change me from a Bachelor

If I was a big time Hollywood Movie Star
I would hang out with Clark Gable and Errol Flynn would let me use his car

I'd hang out with Kate Hepburn and Betty Davis too
and I'd help ol' Bazzle Rathbone
solve a case or two
I'd walk down a busy street and everyone one would stare
I'd spend all of my money and never even care

If I was a big time Hollywood Movie Star
I would hang out with Clark Gable and Errol Flynn would let me use his car

So I wish I could find a way to travel bag in time
to be discovered by a big shot when I'm down to my last dime
I'd become real famous, I'd own a limousine
and everyone would say, I'm the best they've ever seen

If I was a big time Hollywood Movie Star
I would hang out with Clark Gable and Errol Flynn would let me use his car
I'd hang out with Clark Gable
Track Name: Scraping Cement
Beautiful, oh spacious skies
You're beautiful in my eyes
You're wonderful when I'm deep inside
You're wonderful by my side

I'm overboard and underground, all is lost and never found
The message is clearly sent
Pick me up and knock me down, shove my face into the ground
Trail away scraping cement

You're everything to me
You're everything that I've dreamed
But it's astonishing and a big surprise
It's astonishing, all of your lies

I'm overboard and underground, all is lost and never found
The message is clearly sent
Pick me up and knock me down, shove my face into the ground
Trail away scraping cement

You're dangerous, catastrophe
You're dangerous with what you've done to me
But it's ridiculous and plain to see
The parody, even the blind can see

m overboard and underground, all is lost and never found
The message is clearly sent
Pick me up and knock me down, shove my face into the ground
Trail away scraping cement

Hypocrisy, you still believe
in everything that you never preach
Sincerity will set you free
Sincerity, just a dream...
Track Name: Guitar Hero
Momma, she's got a problem
She gets my prescription drugs for free
Step Daddy, he don't want to solve it
cuz he's addicted to prescriptions just like me

My sister's got a Ferrari
Outside for everyone to see
For Christmas, she bought me an Atari
It's the only gift I'll ever get for free

Sorry's just an answer when accidents are done purposely
Could you please give me direction cuz I can't seem to read all the signs

My girlfriend, she's really awesome
but she loves all the singers after me
a magician, she's always disappearing
then reappearing quarter after 3

Sorry's just an answer when accidents are done purposely
Could you please give me direction cuz I can't seem to read all the signs

Everybody's a Guitar Hero
when starring inside their T.V.
but I would rather trade those plastic buttons
for some good old fashioned metal guitar strings

Sorry's just an answer when accidents are done purposely
Could you please give me direction cuz I can't seem to read all the signs

Everybody's a Guitar Hero...
Track Name: Whiskey Train
Back in the day when I was still happy and free
An upstanding citizen in sobriety
before the bottle tore me from society
cuz now the Whiskey is the only thing I drink

Smoke fills the air as I walk through
before I sit I'm yelling for a brew
Pop the top down a shot or two
Swallow more I'm closer to the truth
12 steps closer to my misery
Beer glasses the only way I see
My Higher Power is calling me
saying it's time to come back home

So I confront you about the venom that you spew
and you tell me that I am one of quite a few
I kick you out cuz all my nightmares have come true
and now there's only one thing left for me to do
Get back up on my Whiskey Train

I give in but you keep coming after me
This moment ain't what I thought this ought to be
Do what you say but you keep trapping me
with these half plastic blasphemies
A fantastic cock block catastrophe
cuz you never give me what I need
You keep coming home past three drunk again passed out in bed.
Track Name: Paid My Dues
Work 9 to 5 and nights trading sleep for appetites that don't eat
Plastic cards used all the time depleting the funds that put shoes on my feet
Hand to the sky as it falls asleep, cabs driving fast past me
Time passes by but it's way past me, tread ahead but don't fall too deep

So spread the news
So much that's left to prove
Bring me down but I refuse
cuz I've paid my dues

Bridges burn with nowhere to turn, broken tracks but I ain't looking back
Slippery when it's wet keep my feet dead set you're gonna get what you get
Never learned to sat away from hurt a sick trick to keep my walls built thick
Careful what you wish I can take what you dish my pride's the one thing left

So spread the news
So much that's left to prove
Bring me down but I refuse
cuz I've paid my dues

Work 9 to 5 and nights trading sleep for appetites that don't eat
Plastic cards used all the time depleting the funds that put shoes on my feet
Hand to the sky as it falls asleep, cabs driving fast past me
Time passes by but it's way past me, tread ahead but don't fall too deep

So spread the news
So much that's left to prove
Bring me down but I refuse
cuz I've paid my dues
Track Name: Now You Tell Me
Now you tell me that you love me
Now you tell me that you care
Now you'll say that you'll forgive me
But I know there's no love there

It always seems like things don't matter
It always seems like you don't care
and you know that it only makes me madder at you
everytime I see you here

Now you tell me that you love me
Now you tell me that you care
Now you'll say that you'll forgive me
But I know there's no love there

Sometimes I just don't understand
the garbage running through your head
and I know that I just cannot stand it...it's true
when you're trash is laying in my bed

Now you tell me that you love me
Now you tell me that you care
Now you'll say that you'll forgive me
But I know there's no love there

I thought that you could see the change in me
I thought that you could read the signs
You always blamed the fights on me, not you
You can't see through blinded eyes

Now you tell me that you love me
Now you tell me that you care
Now you'll say that you'll forgive me
But I know there's no love there
Track Name: Maria
Maria tonight is featured, 103 fever, she'll get you hot
Maria, so nice to meet you, I thought I dreamed you so please don't stop
Maria knows how to read you, she turns the haves into the have nots
You'll believe her until she leaves you
You better hold on to what you got

But there you go
and I should have known
that you'd leave me all alone
at the end of the song

Maria knows how to touch you, she's always teasing you're favorite spot
Maria, she'll have you spending, eating and drinking until the last drop

But there you go
and I should have known
that you'd leave me all alone
at the end of the song

Maria, she looks like a keeper, a beautiful creature, inside she's not
She'll deceive you and you'll believe her you better be careful not what you thought

But there you go
and I should have known
that you'd leave me all alone
at the end of the song
Track Name: Once Had a Romance
Once had a romance
I once took a big chance
I once had a romance
I once took a big chance

I once was in Heaven
Kicked out a quarter past seven
I once was in Heaven
Kicked out a quarter past seven

Deceit defeats the light in the shadows I wallow away

I once had a big fight
Now I sleep alone at night
I once had a big fight
Now I sleep alone at night

Deceit defeats the light in the shadows I wallow away
Keep me out of sight, don't want you see me losing all that I am

I once was committed
Now I've been committed
Track Name: Never Say Never
I once talked to an old man and asked him for the truth
He told me not to worry about it, just keep my youth
Then he did tell me one thing that I should mind
Never say never, you'll regret it every time

Never say never, cuz you never know
what's around the next bend, is it rain or is it snow?
Never say never, or you will find
that nothing is a sure thing, you gotta read the signs

I once had me a young girl who loved me true and true
She said she'd never let me go, she said that I love you
Then she said she's never leave, I didn't know what to do
Cuz I know to never say words that are untrue

Never say never, cuz you never know
what's around the next bend, is it rain or is it snow?
Never say never, or you will find
that nothing is a sure thing, you gotta read the signs

I once took to the highway to try to find myself
I rambled through 11 states, working on my 12th
I told myself don't ever stop until I satisfy
that empty feeling deep inside that says you'll never die

Never say never, cuz you never know
what's around the next bend, is it rain or is it snow?
Never say never, or you will find
that nothing is a sure thing, you gotta read the signs

Nothing is a sure thing
Nothing is a sure thing
Nothing is a sure thing
You gotta read the signs
