No Money 02:49
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

DEADMEAT 03:28
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.

A Response 03:38
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

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...
