Track Name: No More Heroes
No more heroes be careful who you idolize
We're all full of shit and all full of lies
we're all zeroes no matter what we say
and just like you we do bad things everyday

I'm not superhuman, just an average guy
who can't cope very well, so I get super high
till all my shit is broken and all my friends are dead
I'll find the truth one day or put a bullet in my head

There's one thing that I can ask
is knowing the truth worth digging through the trash
you can spend your life in ignorance
but you and I both know that it's a death sentence

Another banjo lady a brand new bad habit
one more dirty girl and the scabs she picks
another staph infection go eat some raw garlic
at least one good decision so I won't die from it

There's one thing that I don't know
is knowing the truth worth it anymore
you can spend your life in ignorance
but you and I both know that it's a death sentence
Track Name: The Longest Line
Does it make you who you are to fill your lungs with tar
cus every day you're smoking squares and every week you dye your hair
was it blue or was it black should you really be

smoking crack to impress your friends
oh take me back before this song ends so that we can try again
quit snorting meth and sing this song instead

so don't do crack take your life back
and I'm not wrong you should probably call your mom

is it heroes or just heroin that bump our lives off track again
another pack of cigarettes to replace the food you can't digest
are these your keys(yes) is that my coke(yes)
well your weak knees match my lack of hope

that you're ever going to do anything because while you were shoving needles in your arm and sewing patches onto your clothes I as trying to figure out the difference between alcoholism and activism and while you claim to be free you're really just slaves to the operating hours of the nearest liquor store

so things wont change they'll just stay the same
well there's no way is my life just a game
don't cut in line cus I'm still sober I'll feel fine when this song is over

Don't give a fuck about my bad luck
am I on drugs I probably need a hug
Track Name: West Coast, Worst Coast
California, no doubt about it
could've gone my whole life without it
California isn't full of hippies
it hasn't been since the 1960's

and every time that I think of the west coast I think of you
and every time that they say it is the best coast I know it can't be true

So California, I won't be missing you
way up on Haight St down to Valley View
San Francisco, that Family and their Dogs
foaming at the mouth and being thugs

every time that I think of California I know I wont go back
tried to make it out of Quartzsite, Arizona but that plan didn't last
Because we just ended up going back to San Francisco

California, I'm 50 years too late
sink into the ocean I think that'd be great
Track Name: Up & Away
Up, down, left, right, life's got you wound up pretty tight
you swear you're gonna lose your mind there seems to be no end in sight
one, two, three, four, you cannot take it anymore
so take a breath and clear your mind stop and think you just might find

good things come and good things go
what they could be we'll never know
because times are good and times are bad
maybe our lives just ain't that bad

five, six, seven, eight, tell me what you really hate
it's only gonna weigh you down I'd really hate to see you frown
bounce, scream, jump, shout it's time to finally get it out
let it go and say good bye it's nothing we can't do without

good things come and good things go
what they could be we'll never know
because times are good and times are bad
maybe our lives just ain't that bad

run down, knocked out life's not all about
drop in, drop out life goes on with out
run down, knocked out life's not all about
drop in, drop out life goes on without
You
Track Name: Window Panes
If today was your last day on earth
what would you regret?
would anything you're worried about right now really matter?
get a job, go back to school, start a family
is this what runs through our heads?
as our hearts give out,
as our minds explode into color and paint the wall of existence?
if you wouldn't think of it then, why think of it now?
in those final moments I know I won't.
What about all the unfinished romances & half written songs
how many times did you mean to say I love you
instead of starting a fight you knew you couldn't finish?
how hard have we all tried to make up for it? I know I did.

because there's something the way you move
like a mote of dust in a spotlight
altering perception as it comes
there's something in the way I walk
like a blind man through the night
guided by the light of a clouded understanding
stumbling past the rays of light
I'll know you without ever seeing
I'll love you without ever knowing why
so, if this is my last day on earth
I don't regret that I want to spend it
with you
