Track Name: Survival Tunes
Of course, who couldn't
enjoy a pleasant stroll out in the setting sun
But who wouldn't
gather rocks for knocks at those who won

Beneath the light of the moon
Jamming hard on survival tunes
There's work at the Silver Spoon
Keeping busy with bus-trays and brooms

A craze, a notion
A casting call we heard throughout the land
Pills and potions
arrive to quell the pain that makes demands

Beneath the light of the moon
Jamming hard on survival tunes
There's work at the Silver Spoon
Keeping busy with bus-trays and brooms

On fire, a fury,
here required to do what furies do
But I'm worried
'Cause baby now there's not much left of you

Beneath the light of the moon
Jamming hard on survival tunes
There's work at the Silver Spoon
Keeping busy with bus-trays and brooms
Track Name: The Summer of Our Distraction
Opportunists who learned from changes earned
Inspired by the action
Their flames still burn despite downward turns
In the summer of our distraction

Heralding harm, sounding alarms
They sleep among the roaches
Wrapped in the charms of quality yarns
Our soundproof ride approaches

A voice on-stage, an ugly age
Authenticity, precision
The final rage of the fading page
Wins critics pick decisions
Track Name: Exhausted Scenarios
To be the first, to be the best
To be wide awake while others sleep
In other words, a self-obsessed creep
At a loss with dreams and schemes
Popping PBRs again
Cooped up in a cage with your friends

Exhausted scenarios
Broken arrows tumble from our beat-up bows
It’s hard to hear but hey that’s how it goes

Build it up as best you can
Lay open your cupboard bare
Sing your song expect the world to care
Hold forth hard with all you've got
You celebrated sloganeer
The crowd just wants a reason to cheer

Exhausted scenarios
Broken arrows tumble from our beat-up bows
It’s hard to hear but hey that’s how it goes
Track Name: Safe and Sorry: Profiles in Cowardice
Maybe I'm in need of something new
I'm tired of all the worrying, wondering what to do
Here at our table for two
If I leave for good there'll be more room for you

Easy lives like ours are full of pain
And after all our arguments I’m not sure who to blame
Do we change? Do we stay the same?
This tired little tune keeps tickling my brain


Every night we play the peeping pervs
Dreams and desires, please do not disturb
The scene starts, we watch without words
The expensive display we tell ourselves we deserve

Times as good as these are gonna end
And probably sometime soon, so baby don't pretend
In a world where the good guys always win
They'll brand us the bad ones before the fight begins


There's danger on the dark side of the door
The street lights aren’t shining, pundits blame the poor
The blue beam of television's roar
The practiced indignation keeping us from keeping score

It startles so the way things seem to go
Tiny lives defined by what we own and what we owe
Tramps like us we keep our voices low
Repeating what we're told like it hits it on the nose
