Real World

I wonder what it's like to be the rainmaker (pause) I wonder what it's like to
know that I make the rain(pause) I'd store it in boxes with little yellow tags
on everyone(short pause) and you can come see them when I'm...done, when I'm done

I wonder what it's like to be a super hero(pause) I wonder where I'd go if I
could fly around downtown (pause)from some other planet, I get this funky
high on yellow sun(pause) boy I bet my friends will all be...stunned, they're
stunned

(chorus) straight up, what did you hope to learn about here
if I were someone else, would this all fall apart strange, where were
you, when we started this gig, I wish the real world, would just stop
hassling me

I wonder what it's like to be the head honcho(pause) I wonder what I'd do if
they all did just what I said(pause) I'd shout out an order, I think we're out of
this man get me some boy don't make me wanna change my...tone,
my tone (chorus) please don't change, please don't break the only
thing that seems to work at all is you please don't change, at all from
me to you, and you to me (chorus) 


Long Day

It's sitting by the overcoat, the second shelf, the note she wrote
that I can't bring myself to throw away and also reach she said for no
one else but you, cuz you won't turn away when someone else is gone

I'm sorry 'bout the attitude I need to give when I'm with you but no
one else would take this shit from me and I'm so terrified of no one
else but me I'm here all the time I won't go away it's me, yeah I can't
get myself to go away it's me, and I can't get myself to go away oh
God shouldn't feel this way

(chorus) reach down your hand in your
pocket pull out some hope for me it's been a long day, always ain't
that right and no Lord your hand won't stop it just keep you
trembling it's been a long day, always ain't that right

well I'm surprised that you'd believe in any thing that comes from
me I didn't hear from you or from someone else and you're so set in
life man, a pisser they're waiting too damn bad you get so far so fast
so what, so long (chorus) it's me, yeah and I can't get myself to go
away it's me, yeah and I can't get myself to go away oh God I
shouldn't feel this way (chorus) 


3 A.M.

She says it's cold outside and she hands me my raincoat she's always
worried about things like that she says it's all gonna end and it
might as well be my fault and she only sleeps when it's raining and
she screams and her voice is straining (chorus) she says baby it's 3
am I must be lonely when she says baby well I can't help but be
scared of it all sometimes says the rain's gonna wash away I believe
it

she's got a little bit of something, God it's better than nothing and
in her color portrait world she believes that she's got it all she
swears the moon don't hang quite as high as it used to and she only
sleeps when it's raining and she screams and her voice is straining
(chorus) she believes that life is made up of all that you're used to
and the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days, and days
she thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway but
outside it's stopped raining (chorus) 


Push

She said I don't know if I've ever been good enough I'm a little bit
rusty, and I think my head is caving in and I don't know if I've ever
been really loved by a hand that's touched me, well I feel like
something's gonna give and I'm a little bit angry, well

this ain't over, no not here, not while I still need you around you
don't owe me, we might change yeah we just might change (chorus)
I wanna push you around, well I will, well I will I wanna push you down, well I will, well I
will I wanna take you for granted, I wanna take you for granted I will

she said I don't know why you ever would lie to me like I'm a little
untrusting when I think that the truth is gonna hurt ya and I don't
know why you couldn't just stay with me you couldn't stand to be
near me when my face don't seem to want to shine cuz it's a little bit
dirty well

don't just stand there, say nice things to me I've been cheated I've
been wronged, and you you don't know me, I can't change I won't do
anything at all (chorus) oh but don't bowl me over just wait a minute
well it kinda fell apart, things get so crazy, crazy don't rush this
baby, don't rush this baby (chorus) 


Girl Like That

You think this life would make me bolder but I'm running scared is
all I hang on everything about you you think I'd settle down cuz I'm
older but I roll with the changes is all I'm same old trailer trash in
new shoes

she gets sad when there's nothing going on she says it makes her
feel damn worthless (chorus 1) well you got to think with a girl like
that any love at all, is better than nothing it's better than nothing

I put my hands around your shoulder you're saying you're scared is
all I think I know too much about you you think this life would make
me colder I'd give in to the alcohol I put my loving arms around you,
child

you knew damn well there was nothing going on is that what makes
you feel damn worthless (chorus 2) well you got to think with a girl
like that any love is better than nothing it's better than nothing you
got to think, with a girl like that any love at all, is better than nothing
it's better than nothing yeah she drags you down and she pulls you
up she pulls you up says that she's sorry now but it's not enough to
pull you up she's sorry

I wake up quick just like I want to yeah but I stay out much too late
you think this life can get a bit unkind but she stays down till the
worth is gone and pulls you up, she pulls you up, she pulls you up
and over, over (chorus 2) (chorus 1) 


Back 2 Good

It's nothing, it's so normal you just stand there I could say so much
but I don't go there cuz I don't want to I was thinking if you were
lonely maybe we could leave here and no one would know at least
not to the point that we would think so

everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking about somebody
else it's best if we all keep it under our heads I couldn't tell, if
anyone here was feeling the way I do but I'm lonely now, and I don't
know how to get it back to good

this don't mean that, you own me this ain't no good, in fact it's phony
as hell but things worked out just like you wanted too if you see me
out you don't know me try to turn your head, try to give me some
room to figure out just what I'm going to do

and everyone here, hates everyone here for doing just like they do
it's best if we all keep this quiet instead and I couldn't tell, why
everyone here was doing me like they do but I'm sorry now, and I
don't know how to get it back to good

everyone here, is wondering what it's like to be with somebody else
everyone here's to blame, everyone here gets caught up in the
pleasure of the pain, everyone hides shades of shame, but looking
inside we're the same, we're the same and we're all grown now, but
we don't know how to get it back to good

everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking 'bout somebody
else it's best if we all keep this under our heads I couldn't tell, if
anyone here was feeling the way I do but it's over now, and I don't
know how, it's over now there's no getting back to good 


Damn

This old world well don't it make you wanna think damn this cold girl
well I know she wanna make you scream, damn

what's the matter girl well don't you think I'm good enough this old
heart's had a whole lot a breakin' down she's got all these reasons
in her head

(chorus 1) all that time she knew if I lied you can bet she will she's
taking her time 'til I thought I would die and I can't sit still

things got turned 'round don't know where I started from, damn I
can't eat, can't sleep could have been a bigger man, damn oh what's
the matter girl well don't you think I'm bright enough this old man
had hard time getting here you can leave your number at the door
(chorus 1)

(chorus 2) and there's nothing at all yeah there's nothing at all well
there's nothing at all to make her change her mind

this old house been quiet since you went away, damn mixed up
fixed out don't forget who got you here, damn

oh what's the matter world well don't you see I opened up this
whole part been played by another man I pulled out the reason card
instead (chorus 1) (chorus 2)

says she can find the things that make up a life I bet she will she
stays behind, I could stay here all night I could stay here until

until there's nothing at all yeah there's nothing at all well there's
nothing at all to make her change her mind 


Argue

She don't, but she will he says anything to keep her by him she
takes what she gets, and she never did flinch, no

so over, and over, well anyone with any mind would think that's all
she gets (chorus) if you want you can get to know me well we get
along so we shouldn't argue, yeah and I don't know yes, said I don't
know no all these feelings cloud up my reasoning cloud up my
reasoning

I know, but I still believe in ignorance as my best defense so go on,
wreck me funny how I carry on, and not be taken over will not roll
over on anyone, cuz anyone would stand up on my side (chorus)
you know it's funny how sometimes, it don't work out like you want
to no you never get nothing at all then she tells you that it's nothing
at all then she tells you that it's over, boy don't you hate it when it's
over I guess something just got lost, and it deeply saddens me so
over, and over anyone, who's anyone (chorus) 


Kody

Kody sat down on the avenue he tapped his feet, to the humming of
the highway he watched the light shine down on the broken glass
and thought I don't got no reasons, yet there it is and there it was it
was clear to all of us we kept this hat of broken dreams and we
pulled them out, when we needed them around (chorus) so please
hand me the bottle, I think I'm lonely now and please give me
direction, I think the hurt set in and I don't feel nothing

there's a squeak hinge down on the back gate it lets us know if he
comes around I don't sleep that good anyway if you've never heard
the silence, it's a God awful sound (chorus) I don't feel nothing, no I
don't feel nothing there's nothing to feel good about here

don't much get down to the avenue I could drive, but it takes so
much to get there don't get off on all the broken glass, the cadillac
scene, well I've seen a lot of good things die and I'm in an over
emotional way (chorus) 


Busted

I forget when words were only words she knows the party makes me
nervous in this stage we can't get hurt don't try to understand me

we're too cool to be alone but, not too crazy to get busted

I found out one life ain't enough I need another soul to feed on I'm
the flame I can't get burnt I'm wholly understated

I found silence in this space an on and off again attraction I need
such amazing grace heaven sweep me away (chorus) love don't
change, don't come around here don't wear my heart on your
sleeve like a high school letter don't strain, cuz nothing ever comes
from it and the people we've become, well they've never been the
people who we are

I strap on one horse and prayed for luck I dug another hole to bleed
I know exactly how this works I need a new feel dirty
