Housebroke

Lyrics by Tim Mellor
 
Make up your mind
Sing me to sleep
As long as I’m asleep.
Its about time
why would we wait
wait til I’m awake?
 
Take what you want
I’m never really there
As long as you’re never
there to forgive me
I won’t be waiting
Don’t try to keep me
When I can be forgotten.
 
This isn’t right
Nothing is real
You can’t just make it real.
I can hear your heart
and I can feel it beat
It doesn’t beat for me.
 
I can’t take it all
Its too much for me
You know that I never said I want this
Its not what I wanted
Don’t try to keep me
When I can be forgotten

Mother Mary

Lyrics by Zack Wiese
Slick inspired - sick and tired
Everything I’ve long admired
Far and nearly - dark and dreary
Too bad I’m bad at thinking clearly.
 
Give me one, four, maybe two more
I hope that you were keeping score
 
(chorus) Would you miss me when I’ve been gone for ages?

Will you miss me when I’ve been gone for ages?

 

Shake up darling - wake up startled.

Dreamt of recently departed

You’re not ready - words are heavy

The show is on the road already.

 

I never thought I ever lost

The battles you and I had fought

 

(chorus)

 

Took the time to look and find you

Peter, Paul, and John denied you

Secondary - can you carry

Your father and your Mother Mary?

 

Take a second and leave a wreck in

places that I’m least forgetting

drop and roll and stop the show

There’s places that I’d like to go

 

(chorus 2x)

Nice And Tall

Lyrics by Zack Wiese

You put your finger on the trigger and you pull it,

I’m falling down.

You put your finger to your lips and you can’t hear me

I'm calling out.

Can you ever say you knew someone enough,

they won’t let you down?

Can I ever say I knew you loud and clear

without looking down?

 

(chorus)

Nice and tall - so I don’t lose you in the shadow

of it all - nice and tall so I don’t lose you in the shadow

of it all

 

You tie me tight around your finger and you pull it

I’m hanging down

You put your fingers in your ears and you can’t hear me

Without a sound.

Can you ever say you knew someone enough?

You were blacking out.

Can I ever say I knew you loud and clear

without looking down?

 

(chorus) 2x

 

Hey there - straight as an arrow - straight as an arrow - straight as an arrow

Straighten up your spine

Hey there - straight as an arrow - straight as an arrow - straight as an arrow

straighten up it all

 

So i don’t lose you in the shadow

of it all - nice and tall so I don’t lose you in the shadow

Of it all - nice and tall so I don’t lose you in the shadow

of it all - nice and tall - so I don’t lose you in the shadow

...of it all

Bethesda

Lyrics by Zack Wiese

There’s too much red on that pink dress

its back and to the left

The southern boy made such a mess

but he made himself an anti-hero

 

(chorus)

Lonestar savage nesting on the 6th floor

Smoke like ghosts are knocking at the back door

on Friday night, it played out on TV.

 

Aim cameras waist high - would you please

No need to see my knees (what he’s thinking)

I think I’ll go to the movies

My mind is leaning (gonna tip it)

 

(chorus)

 

Son, what happened to your face?

“I fought the head of state” (and he bruised me)

It seemed to us a clear cut case

stoned to death (We threw Rubies)

 

(chorus)
 

Lonestar buried, Russian dolls are muted

Grand Procession - how sad, look, he saluted

On Monday morning - it played out on TV

on TV

TV

Move Too Fast

Lyrics by Tim Mellor

I don’t think that you know me

I don’t think that you even know yourself.

First you’ll have to show me,

Then you’ll have to convince everybody else.

Cuz anybody who knows me knows I have questions and I’m looking for answers

Anybody who knows me know’s I can’t be slowed down - no you can’t slow me down

 

Cuz I move too fast, yeah

and I’m moving faster,

and I’ll race right past ya

Cuz I move too fast.

 

I don’t think that you heard me

I’m pretty sure that you love yourself too much.

First you’ll have to show me

You’re gonna have to convince me with your touch

Cuz anybody who knows me knows I can feel it, and its paralyzing.

Anybody who knows me know’s I can’t be slowed down - no you can’t slow me down cuz

 

I move too fast, yeah

and I’m moving faster,

you’re stuck in plaster,

cuz i move too fast, yeah

and I’m moving faster,

Your body is my cancer

Cuz I move too fast.

Sweet Talk

Lyrics by Tim Mellor

Just in time for summer,

Just in time for fall.

It’s a little too late for the winter and spring

but its an honor that you’d come at all (so why don’t ya)

Come a little early

Stay a little late

We gotta make it up for all the time that we lost

I wouldn’t have it any other way

 

but if you give me some time you’re gonna leave with a smile

but if you give me some time, you’re gonna leave.

 

Tell me in a whisper

No one else can know

Try to keep it down with all these people around

I need to hear it before you go (so why don’t ya)

Leave me with your number

I didn’t get your name

Lets have another round and have a night on the town

if you think that you might be feeling the same.

 

but if you give me some time you’re gonna leave with a smile

but if you give me some time, you’re gonna leave.

 

It’s safe to say I’m getting restless

A little sweet talk leaves you wreckless

before you leave, I’ll make you breakfast

A little sweet talk leaves you breathless

 

but if you give me some time you’re gonna leave with a smile (3x)

but if you give me some time you’re gonna leave
