Track Name: Kosovo
i always put steps between
where i am and where i want to be
i take these thoughts and i tell myself
that i'm the one that deserves hell

it takes a lot to change my mind
i don't know where to start or how to begin
stand in the back with a fire inside
a chip on my shoulder holding onto my pride

well i'm far to old to know everything
crowded temper is kept on the shelf
i'm still working within myself

i've got scars on my finger tips
from mistakes that i have made
i'm far too proud to talk about it
but it's running through my veins

i have too many thoughts in my head
too many worries in this bed
a no trust out of hand play
i'm lacking common sense today

chorus

a thought was flying
through time and space
i was ignorant
but then it put me in my place

chorus x 2
Track Name: Crocodile Tears
so far in my life
my guts have always been right
optimism blinds sight
shoulda known better
shoulda known better

out of sight and out of mind
out of patience and out of time
i'm going out for cigarettes
no i don't smoke
i'm leaving this here mess

i'll keep it to myself
i'm keeping it clean
i'll act above bar
i'll hide all my mean

throwing out the fiction
that strung me along
little did i know
it might make me strong

Chorus

//i've got a couple of days
a couple of bucks
i'll find some new things
in these old chucks

i'm throwing out the fiction
that strung me along
little did i know
it might make me strong// x2
Track Name: Worth
i'm looking to sell my soul
for something less than gold
i don't know where
i've got plenty of life to spare
i've no ears for this
cause i can find your flaws
and i can write you off
and lose you without loss

who am i to you?
'cause i can feel you shaping truth
let go of my mistake making mind
i'm afraid of what i'll find tonight

take a step back
and a deep breath
take the air from this crippling doubt
it's a funny thing that i'm now care free
but careful, suspicious as can be

chorus

silence is a funny thing
as far as funny goes
it will bring you to sobriety
it will knock you off your toes
when you can't hide among friends
you will find, you will find there's an end

chorus
Track Name: Poetry Ain't What it Used to be
i'm waiting
for a letter
in response to the one that i sent last week
and i'm fearing it's been too long for me to hold my breath and see

i've fallen in love before
and i'll fall in love again
i'm not sure that it's real
but for now we will pretend

it's alright
and i'm ok
individually we're just getting by
a set of unfortunate consequences
i'm not sure how to try

this weekend
marks a few months
since i have seen you eye to eye
and i'm thinking it's been too long
so i guess this is goodbye

chorus

another disappointing day
another disappointing delivery
for what is search is elusive
and where look inconclusive

chorus
Track Name: Reasons for the Mess
i've got mean things to say
but i just keep them on the inside
because they might ruin your day
and the pain might grow with time

so i look the other way
just got to kill them with kindness
it's my dues i have to pay
i'll realize them in my hindsight

don't forget
we're not worth our weight in gold
don't bet
we're just boys grown tall

don't forget
we're not worth our weight in gold
don't bet
we're just boys grown tall

sometimes i'm a sinner
sometimes i am a saint
what if i'm never finished?
it's got me feeling faint

sometimes i'm a sinner
sometimes i am a saint
what if i'm never finished?
it's got me feeling faint
