Track Name: Worble Walk
I've got a worble in my step
Tryin' to carry you on my back
Seems I'm hitting every crack
But we keep pressing on!

Don't apologize for yesterday
Thinking that it's gonna change a thing
You're better than you think
Tryin' to pad your load like it's going out of style
Next thing that you know it'll be time to go

Overcast and rough terrain
Dusted before we even begin
To haul the journey in
Tryin' to catch the glow while you're pinching out the light
Next thing that you know you're digging your own hole

If we don't make it, hey, we tried
And if they ask us we can lie
If you're out of action we can shout
Until they come to shut us out

I've got a worble in my step
Tryin' to carry you on my back
Seems I'm hitting every crack
But we keep pressing on!
Track Name: Love This Country
Always on the up 'n' up
You feel the pressure mounting
Migraine like a mountain
Rumours later by the fountain
Breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks
None were ever yours to take
Your ergonomic slouch
Stuffed inside a cardboard box
Faces filled with understanding
Sneerin' ear to ear
Oh baby, get the fear
So we can love this country...

Rinse the dandruff from your scalp
Try to get the feeling back
Pull the plug, watch it suck
A life of worry all grown up
Tell me honey, what's the point?
Well we just close our eyes
And it comes at no surprise
That we can love this country...

Just hold out your arms
And we can love this country like we ought to do
(What life is worth all these strifes?
I'm all out of sacrifices
What's a life without my vices?)

Everything's just super great
In this lush land of ours!
Spendin' all my time outdoors
'Cus I can't land a job
Tell my loved ones I'm OK
I'll make it through the night
When times get tough we wait it out
Just like you taught me to!
Track Name: XX X
Next time you're in town
You could leave
So much more than cigarette stains on my couch
Tell you what, I've got to tell you
I've never told you how I felt
I'm a mess but here it comes
And you know it's for no one else

Next time you're in town
It's on me I want that body
Ugh, I'm gonna need that body
Yeah, I'm gonna need that body
I wanna push this love to the next level
Even if that means we're steady
Oh, can't you see I'm ready?
Baby, don't keep me waiting

Ah-oh-aagghhh-aahhoooo-ahoo-aghooo-o

Findin' trouble tryin' to keep my friends
All the good comes to end

Wanna tell you what I fancy
Yeah, I'm gonna take my chances
Call you up but you don't answer me

Well, baby when I do see you
I can see the real you
He's with me and he's happy

Everyone keeps on tellin me
I got off on the wrong one
But this love cannot be undone
You just mean too much to me...
Track Name: Twisted
All my folks and all my friends must have it out for me
Every time I open up my maw their jaws all hit the ceiling
Touch my head, I've got the fever
Come on, don't you feel it?
I'm comin' fast to take it slow
Yeah, you'd better believe me...

I think I'm somewhere in the middle
Yeah, I'll be just a minute
Don't get apprehensive
I'm pretty sure that-
I'm somewhere in the middle
Yeah, I'll be just a minute
Don't get apprehensive
I do this for a living

Seven years of blood and sweat
And all of it for not
I've been going over everything
And picking off the rot
If time's an ocean
I drank a sea and pissed it all away
My life-line's just a twisted tape
That's popped right off the reel, yeah...

Doubting that the feeling's there
Cus I feel it all the time
I never know what's coming next
Cus I keep changing the lines
I keep my hands in everything
I tear of my own strip
How can y'all make up your minds on me
When all you taste is tip? Yeah...

We'll be ok.
