Track Name: Long Gone
Maybe I was a dung beetle rolling you around and round and round for years
too complacent to have noticed the stink
Maybe I was the worst damn Sisyphus (who all our friends would come to cheer)
letting you roll over me

Happy is your hobby on those days when you don't want to die
I can tell you're slipping but you use the slide to kill the time
Pass you in the psych ward, as you're checking in, I'm checking out
We're long gone.

Maybe you were the dung beetle rolling me around and round and round for years
too much of a coward to acknowledge the smell
Maybe you were the worst damn Sisyphus (who all our friends would learn to fear)
letting me roll down to hell
Track Name: Enable Me
When we get down to drinking, you're dreaming of one day being free
When we get down to drinking, I'm thinking "oh baby, you enable me."

So far, we know I'm an asshole
coming to in a Brooklyn White Castle
Jackson Heights, and the show was alright
but my contacts are gone and so am I

I don't know where you're sleeping
whose company you're keeping
Something is wrong, but I can't put a finger on...
oh, that's right, it's everything

When we get down to drinking, you're dreaming of one day being free
When we get down to drinking, I'm thinking "oh baby, you enable me."

You're too busy to come watch TV
I'm too busy to go through DT's
Drinking alone together all night
wake up, regret it, and live our life

Turns out, we're both of us assholes
passed out on pathways to where greener grass grows
Don't get me clean, I'm not a waste
just too hungover to make a change
Track Name: I Want to Love You (Till I Don't)
I'm done with common sense
I'd rather live a life of action than of consequence

I'm done with the future tense
The best laid plans of mice and man aft get shot to shit

I want to love you till I don't
I want to write you symphonies till I'm bored with all these little black notes and
I want you to love me till you can't
I want to race you there hand in hand

I'm done with being afraid
that we're too high atop these
pedestals we co-create

I'm done pointing out the cracks
I'll let the weight of expectations lead to their collapse
Track Name: Joey Crane's Apartment
Wandering the country broken hearted
Spending a week at Joey Crane's apartment
There's a man in the parking lot barfin
I should do the same on this red shag carpet
Admiring decor while Joey Crane's at the bridges
the hand drawn gay porn complements the kitchen
there's no chairs at a table that would only seat midgets
but there's love notes from hookers on only one of his fridges

and I know my brother loves me
but damn, Joey Crane's apartment is ugly

Put Joey Crane in charge and there's no controlling him
son of a bitch built a fireplace out of linoleum
if the skeleton in the corner had eyeballs he'd be rolling them
this basement is Elba and I am Napoleon
Left Joey Crane's to check out the river
in a half hearted attempt not to murder my liver
burned by a witch, but it's hard to forget her
fuck this shit, imma pick up some liquor

and I know my brother loves me
but damn, Joey Crane's apartment is ugly

Love this lewd painting of George Costanza
watching over me as I slam another cold O.E.
This ugly man's at home, alone, in an ugly place to be

This ugly man's at home, alone, in an ugly place to be.
