Track Name: Bargain Bin
I've always sought the finer things in life
But it's so hard to walk that line
And I hope sincerity
One day comes back to me

Meet me downtown where I can lose myself again
I got a job but it won't buy what I want
And they can throw my ass in jail
Just don't throw me in the bargain bin
Track Name: Big Ideas
Little by little I'm losing my mind
Got big ideas but I can't make it right
And I'll be damned if they take it away
And I'll be damned if they take it away

The older I get, I get anxious
I got some wins but I can't count the losses
I'm gonna die trying
I'm gonna die trying
Track Name: Loudmouth
I've seen this before
A portrait of a young man
Ya close all the doors
Before you understand

You don't know what's going on
You can't believe what you see
You don't know where to put your faith
Plenty of snakes in the street

When I was a child
I used to dream
We were the same
And gave each other meaning

And then out of the blue
Our dream never came true
You throw your hands in the air
And then they come to shoot you down
Track Name: Operation Smiles
Caught me dead staring
Into nothing I ain't caring about
I'm a lunaticking time bomb
And I doubt

Will I ever smile again

Caught me dead staring
At another human being and I'm worried
Is it natural to love nothing at all
And I'm worried
Track Name: Resisting Cardiac Arrest
I ain't feeling like myself
But I'm feeling good under fluorescent spells
