Track Name: No Money
I don't know where I'm headed tonight
I wonder where you'll be
Everyone is looking to one another
No one notices me

Catch another train back to the west coast
This time I'm coming home
Catch another train back to the west coast
This time I'm coming home

Wade through rivers and drink them dry
Pour me another I don't know why
You should know that I'm on my way
But I'm a weary traveller with no money to my name

Empty rooms I'll never see again
Playing songs from the stage
The drunk in the corner heckles me and my friends
Him and I are much the same

Catch another train back to the west coast
This time I'm coming home
Catch another train back to the west coast
This time I'm staying home

Wade through rivers and drink them dry
Pour me another I don't know why
You should know that I'm on my way
But I'm a weary traveller with no money to my name
Track Name: DEADMEAT
I came home again drunk last night
We were down the street trying to feel alright
Smoking cigarettes outside of the pub
Trying to forget all that we have done

I just wanna be a better man
I just wanna be a better man

The world is spinning around inside my head
You catch my eyes and you're fixated on them
Pick your poison we may all end up dead
Unless we leave and go somewhere else instead

Eat my body and drink my blood
You are forgiven for all that you have done
So find your neighbour and take away his wife
you can pay for it in the next life

What's the point in being a better man
What's the point in being a better man

Do what you want and take what you can
But I still want to be a better man.
Track Name: A Response
So you say, "We live in a cursed world."
So you say, "It will all be destroyed someday."

We're all going to perish in due time
Go up in flames like the horses we rode in on
And all of the doors that you have opened
Might as well be as closed as your mind

So you say, "We should ship all those people away."
So you say, "There's no place for you here to stay."

We'll put them on boats and ship them out
"One Nation Under God", it's what he'd have wanted
You seem to know him well but from what I've learned
He promoted peace and love

Defend out borders, protect what's ours
We stole it fair and square on the horses we rode in on
And all of the doors that you have opened
Might as well be as closed as your mind
Track Name: What I Never Got
I've made promises that I'll never keep
With my hands tied
and my face toward the ground

It's all cloudy in my mind
I'll take my clothes off
Try and touch my weary bones

I am tired of trying to be someone I'm not
So don't hate me for walking away
from something that I never got

I've made promises I intend to keep
I am still here
trying to find my way along

If and when I come to realize
seasons can change
And I don't have to change who I am

I am tired of trying to be someone I'm not
So don't hate me for walking away
from something that I never got

When leaves turn and the moon's out
before the sun goes down
I'll pick up where I left off
and maybe one day come around

'Cause I am tired of trying to be someone I'm not
So don't hate me for walking away
from something that I never got...
