Track Name: Family Man
Roll, roll, roll the dice.
Honey give me half the time you're giving to your worries.
Oh, I would bet that honey I could be the man who fixes your front porch steps.

Just give me one shot
I know I come on strong, I can't help myself
I'm a family man.

Roll,roll, roll the dice
Honey you can take your time, I know what your friends are thinking.
"One soul brother, a single mother" - but by this time next weekend.
I'll show you my heart, and spill my dreams of a little yellow house and a mini van.

Oh Annie, my love - you've got your little man, I know where I stand.
Oh Annie, my love - the two of you can show me what it takes to be a man.
Track Name: First World Problems
Does that first Goomba always get you?
A thousand outfits but can't find the right shoes.
Your healthy kids cry, there's no reception from this stolen wi-fi.
Still you crave, a second helping on your first plate.

Whoa, this has been going on, for much too long
First world problems, scream if you've got em.

It's Saturday night and parking is a nightmare
Elevators broken we've got to take the stairs
Ten minutes in line, for single malt whiskey when all you want is wine!
Still you crave a first class ticket on an empty plane

Whoa, this has been going on, for much too long
First world problems, scream if you've got em.

Outro:
(My treadmill is broken, I'm running outside in the cold)
(My DVR's down, I'm stuck with ads in my shows)
(There's no room in the fridge for the leftovers from our date!)
(This first world problems, they just make me irate!)
Track Name: Fort Collins, CO
We don't care what you say, we will always live that dog's life
laying around and getting high.
In those river valleys, soaking up the sunlight.
Floating down the county line.

We'll be coming around - to surf down every mountain to be found
Only the divine - could keep us from Her wonderful design.
Home is where your heart is.
Ours sit 10,000 feet in the air.

We'll be headed for the west
Where the people don't care where you've been
Where the heavens mingle with Men.
We'll be headed for the west.

We don't care what you do, we will always love you
open arms and open eyes - in those purple mountains
with a jig of moonshine. On a midnight climb.

We'll be coming around - to surf down every mountain to be found
Only the divine - could keep us from Her wonderful design.
Home is where your heart is.
Ours sit 10,000 feet in the air.

We'll be headed for the west
Where the people don't care where you've been
Where the heavens mingle with Men.
We'll be headed for the west.

Outro:
Oh my sweet loving mother don't worry your head but I forgot to mention that I ain't coming back so don't you leave a light on.
Track Name: Japanese Apartment
This Japanese apartment has me spinning like a daisy
all the walls are changing colors and I'm giddy as a baby.
Naked to the bone. Dancing all alone. And my neighbor's not a clue what's going on.

This paradise ingested, let it serve to us a lesson - to behold the Majesty of everything that be. The scale of the crocodile, the tasty cereal aisle, oh its nice to take a trip every once in a while.

Somehow I had made it to the front stoop of the building
I'm swallowed by the sounds, of all the laughing children.
Sometimes, I admit, I tend to forget
Just how very lucky that we are.
Track Name: Boof (Michele's Song)
Little boys, never stand a chance
without a good hearted women of ever becoming a man.
As for me, I've got a silver fox
who gets in all sorts of trouble but keeps away all the sharks.

She'll say - look me in the eye. I may be older than you all combined, but I've seen things that you've only dreamed. I'm a catcher in the rye

And you child are my child, no one can harm you while you're under my wing - your heart it is my heart, so let them beat!

Little boys, will never make a stand
Without their better half, coming up with part of the plan.
As for me, I've got a silver fox
Who has got me in the trenches, training for the soap box.

She'll say - keep those knees high! When you look them in the eye, bring the truth down like a sword and cut through the lies!

And you child are my child, no one can harm you while you're under my wing - your heart it is my heart, so let them beat!
Where you go, there I am - I've got your back and you're on my six. Your heart it is my heart so let them beat.
Track Name: Shadows on the Wall (feat. Kevin Lloyd)
Shadows on the wall
shadows on the wall
are we are, are just shadows on the wall
until the day I bumped into you
saw the light - now tell me what to do!

My mind is an empty pot
I fill it in the moment with what I've got
that's you - honey I've got you.

These fingers behind my head
Maybe I could be king
(Bow down pay the tax!)
All I'm gonna take is your head.

If I extend my arms
It looks like I have wings
(He can fly! Like a bird!)
All I want to do is fly!

Shadows on the wall
shadows on the wall
are we are, are just shadows on the wall
until the day I bumped into you
saw the light - now tell me what to do!

How the hell did we get in this cave
I don't remember coming here.
Anyway, but it's through
and Honey I've got you.
Track Name: Brother (Tell Me How It Really Is)
Brother tell me how it really is.
Has the world gone to shit?
Or has my bad attitude been causing bad habits?
Wasn't I a happy boy?
Quick with a joke and pleasantly unstable.
Here I hide from the world, underneath our table.

The news man says the world is on fire.
You pleasantly disagree - it's been a great time for peace.

Tell me who I've become.
Have I become such a flake,
that I can't seem to keep those promises that I make?
Wasn't I dependable ?
All those late nights out there at the dance hall
Here I can't find the time for one lousy phone call.

It feels as though I've cast myself to the sea,
And my friends and family, are up on the beach.
Just waiting for me to breach.

Tell me who she really was.
Was she a total bitch?
But I was so in love that I couldn't see through it.
Wasn't I a lover boy?
Got my arms around you m'lady.
Here I can't find some words to tell you how wonderful.

In my mind, I know I could never do better.
but you say that in reality "brother acting like a 3, you're a 10 if you wanted to be."

Remember no man is an island
The strongest need some love from time to time.
Other times we need a little fire, under our behind.

Open the blinds and take a deep breath
Dust off your heart and give it that "college try"
Little brother it's not much that I'm asking,
so let's start with some fresh air and a healthy pint
Come with me tonight.
Track Name: The House Song
Hold me
Hold me darling I'm spread thin.
From these hours, days and weeks that have no end.
I could use a shower
Four sturdy walls, some piece of mind.
Until then it's late nights and catching up when we find the time.

(But somehow I believe)

Honey take me
Take me back to your childhood home.
Show me the secrets, of all the places you called your own.
Could you imagine, painting a room for a daughter of ours.
A bright pink tribute to everyone who's helped us this far.

(Somehow I believe, that someday we'll be free...)

A loft in the city,
an acreage on the edge of town.
Where you could have a garden and finally set some roots down.
Quiet nights in the backyard
Dinner for two and a bottle of wine.
Swaying with the old trees - forgetting all our sense of time.

(Somehow I believe, that we quite possibly, could find a home and be free!)

Somewhere in the trees, spent with four-legged friends
I'll pretend to be a wise man, stroll into town and everyone shakes my hand.
You can read daily, comfortably on the porch. I'll mend your paper cuts, you pinch my cheeks I love the wiggle in your...
But baby you know that I can be, a bit of an animal.
I just need a little cleaning up.
You fold my sheets and darling I can fill you up.
Track Name: Pills
We're at it again
Looking for something blue to catch our eyes.
Anything new to make us feel alive in these ordinary times.

Something to get our fill
Maybe religion or these purple pills
Anything to help us get our thrills you know we are hungry
We are hungry for the kill

Someday when this life is over things will be okay
It doesn't go on, and on and on and..
Those lonely days
when you're drunk downtown and out in the feral sun.

Yes we're at it again
Looking for someone else to pick the fights
Someone else to stand and do whats right you know we haven't got the time.
Someone to get our fill
We're too busy working paying bills.
No time for love, only the cheaper thrills - now we are hungry
We are hungry for the kill

Someday when this life is over things will be okay
It doesn't go on, and on and on and..
Those lonely days
when you're drunk downtown and out in the feral sun.

It's so hard to find anyone who's on your side and not insane.
