Track Name: Collect Call
Oh, it’s not easy keeping up
With your imagination
My head is treading
Through a course of chutes and ladders
Just to try to follow you
To understand
Tell me that you have a plan

You’re on a roll
But you have lost control
It’s hard to say
What I see happening

Oh, take a step back from yourself
And then maybe you will notice
Your answering machine
Has a collection of the fleeting thoughts
You couldn’t bear to throw away
And as they play back I can see you
Rambling into the receiver
Making one of these “collect calls”
From a pay phone in the rain
Saying something barely
They’re coming to take you away

You’re on a roll
But you have lost control
It’s hard to say
What I see happening

You only want what you deserve
You only want what you think
You earned, you earned
Well kid, you’ll learn

You’re on a roll
But you have lost control
It’s hard to say
What I see happening

Oh no, I don’t want to say
Track Name: Buzzkill
Sympathy
Is taking over every inch of me
But I have my own life
And I can’t be bother with these juvenile melodramas anymore
Don’t talk to me
‘Cause all you have are your sad stories
Way to bring a room down
And you’re bumming me out
And messing with my head
You’re such a chore

I don’t mean to be empathetic
But I guess it’s the just way it is with me
It’s all because you’re just so pathetic
And I can’t just sit back when I see
Everything going wrong
And it seems like you’re not strong enough
To fend for yourself

Apologies
All sought on your behalf, but just by me
I do your dirty work
And never seem to get anything out of it
I’m a sympathy whore
A disease
Dyslexic compassion and jealousy
Sick, twisted mind of mine that thinks my good deeds
Will win me a shiny silver trophy of some sort

I don’t mean to be empathetic
But I guess it’s the just way it is with me
It’s all because you’re just so pathetic
And I can’t just sit back when I see
Everything going wrong
And it seems like you’re not strong enough
To fend for yourself
Track Name: Led Zeppelin Rox
Must be exhausting for you
Kicking down those doors
I can’t imagine what it
Must have been like before
We really owe you one
Our own Napoleon

It will all be okay
If you just show us the way
Through this brave new world
We are all so afraid
And rock and roll is so changed
And you are leading the herd

I know you’re new at this
But don’t be insecure
With our years of service to commerce
Success is sure
We are the followers
Your record label earned

That shit really pays off
(That IS true)

It will all be okay
If you just show us the way
Through this brave new world
We are all so afraid
And rock and roll is so changed
And you are leading the herd

And you are so fucking good
Track Name: Drinking Buddy
Well I guess that I should let you know
It doesn’t particularly tickle me at all
No, I’m not in the least impressed
When you show up on my doorstep
Drunk and overdressed
Well I guess that I should be afraid
Of all the dumpsters full of enemies I’ve made
Well I got myself into some trouble
So slide me another drink
And make it double

Well you’re no help to me
We’re just a couple alcoholics
Dodging tragedy
And we’ve got lots to learn
A fresh dynamic duo
Headed straight
For disaster

Well I guess that I should watch my step
And I guess that I should try to break these bad habits
And since you’re my partner in crime
Maybe it’s best if we quit
At the same time
But you’re a very toxic influence
And I know you’ll never help me out of this abyss
Yeah, I got myself into a jam
So I’m drinking myself to death
As fast as I can

Well you’re no help to me
We’re just a couple alcoholics
Dodging tragedy
And we’ve got lots to learn
A fresh dynamic duo
Headed straight
For disaster

I don’t think I’ll ever get over
This addiction of mine
And god knows that
I probably won’t even try
But it’s not my poisonous ways
That I gotta lose
Because the real truth is
I’m just addicted to you


Oh, you’re no help to me
We’re just a couple alcoholics
Dodging tragedy
And we’ve got lots to learn
A fresh dynamic duo
Headed straight
For disaster
Track Name: Urban Folk Revisited
I’m sorry that I can’t
Let your feelings out for you
But I don’t know you well enough
To get inside your head
I’m sorry that you think
I’m ruining this chance for you
But we both know that’s not the truth
So let’s be honest

Don’t know what I’m trying for
All this has been done before
And it’s still the same song
Nothing gets me high enough
Nothing is quite right enough
Doesn’t this feel all wrong?

I’m sorry that you don’t
See the poetry in this
But somewhere I think you have missed
The punchline of the joke
I’m sorry that it’s not
Everything you dreamed it’d be
But I don’t see what you see
Underneath these urban folk

No, I take it back
Why should I apologize?
This melody is a disguise
Just read between the lines
It’s not that hard to crack
These are temporary rhymes
And it’s the last damn time

They say that people never change

Don’t know what I’m trying for
All this has been done before
And it’s still the same song
Nothing gets me high enough
Nothing is quite right enough
Doesn’t this feel all wrong?

Alright
