Track Name: Low Runner
Jumped from the low runner
of a moving truck
fucked my ankle up pretty bad
I didn't mind I just laughed
'coz I was too
drunk to care

Life is tough I reckon
it's getting tougher by the second

Goggles on helmet too
count down to lift off
3-2-1
3-2-1
Started up into the sky
don't know where just know it was high
and so was I
and so too high to care

Life is short I reckon
it's getting shorter by the second
Yeah life is short I reckon
getting shorter by the second

Seal her up I'm going under
I'm gonna replace all this plunder
I've got a submarine full of all the shit
that we stole from the planet
Gonna put it back where it belongs
try to right some of these wrongs

'Coz life is good I reckon
it's getting gooder by the second
Yeah life is good I reckon
it's getting gooder by the second

Life ain't fair or so I've been told
since I was about three years old
Life can be kinda cruel
this much we know is true
Life can be kinda strange
it's getting stranger day by day
Yeah life is strange I reckon
it's getting stranger by the second
Yeah life is strange I reckon
it's not always doing what you're expectin'
Track Name: The Pain
How many more of these fucking hills will I have to climb
All of this running in circles is just a waste of my time
Here is one thing that I hope I will never say
Same old shit, man, on a different day

Got this feeling it's hard to explain
nothing feels quite right except for the pain
that I feel when you walk away
'coz it's real and it stays

Life was pretty good before you stepped into mine
Now I'm all mixed up and chills run down my spine
Every single time you look my way
Blow my mind and that's o.k.

Got this feeling it's hard to explain
nothing feels quite right except for the pain
that I feel when you walk away
'coz it's real and it stays - yeah
Got this feeling it's hard to explain
nothing feels quite right except for the pain
that I feel when you walk away
'coz it's real and it's here to stay
Track Name: Figure It Out
I've been thinking way too long about it
now it's coming out wrong - wish
I had just spit it out

Now I'm feeling kinda long yeah
feeling's coming on strong
spend most my time trying to block it out

I've written twenty songs about it
now I'm starting to doubt if
I'll ever figure it out

Figure it out, figure it out
Figure it out, figure it out
Figure it out, figure it out
Can't figure it out
figure it out
figure it out
figure it out
Can't figure it out
Figure it out
Can't figure it out
figure this feeling out
Can't figure it out
Figure it out
Can't figure it out
figure this feeling out

I've been thinking way too long about it
now my life is half gone oh shit...
Track Name: Last Stand
Young boy he left
his house went west
Walked on train tracks
never looked back
Came to a long bridge
over troubled water
Jumped in can't swim
dreamt of the farmer's daughter

Bulldog tight grip
short end of a long stick
Can't breath just snorts
Body big legs short
Gets loose finds a kid
clamps down on carotid
Holds on life gone
cops come must run
(run, run, run)

Old bum trash can
it's his last stand
Finds a sandwich
just one little hitch
It's held by a big guy
with a mean look in his eye
Right hook fat lip
old bum takes off at a fast clip
Stumbles and he falls
and when he does he mumbles that's all
(that is all)
Track Name: Jesus And Jill
Went down
Down the hill
Met up with Jill
Came back quickly

Fell down
Broke crown
Man those thorns can be prickly

Jesus
Save us
Oh, from the shit we're in

Jesus
Please us
Lead us away

Tell us
Where to now
Where to now
Tell us
[repeat]

Where can you take us now?
Where will you lead us now?
[repeat]
Track Name: Landlocked
Feet on the ground it feels good
Yeah it's alright it's alright
Play hide and seek in the woods
Yeah I'm all hid I'm out of sight

Climbing the jungle gym with him
We could see for miles
And I never really learned to swim
Think I'll stay on land
Think I'll stay on land
Think I'll stay on land

For the rest of my life
[repeat]
Track Name: Johnny Dynamo
Johnny Dynamo
always had something to say
When he'd start his show
sometimes it lasted all day

People would come from miles around
just to hear his words
They would all gather near the sound
of his voice
his voice, his voice
'coz his voice was good

All my memories
left me when I was a boy
All that's left for me
is this big black void

There was the time he climbed a tree
so high, so high, so high
He took in all his eye could see
then he cried, he cried
and I know it sounds cliche but then he died
Track Name: Left Out
Disgusted by the sound of chewing
Destined to a life of feeling
Left out
Left out
Left out
Left out

Brought his bottle everywhere
No one knew how he lived on
Just air
Just air
Just air
Just air
