Track Name: Race to the Bottom
Self-sufficiency, privacy, property
We improve our home
But it won't be long
'til we are moving on

We're almost there
So don't you dare
Come creeping 'round
'cause we don't care

Race to the bottom for the prize!

It's raining luxury, the free economy
Hell, it never stops
We'll just set up shop
And rocket to the top

We're almost there
So don't you dare
Come creeping 'round
'cause we don't care

Race to the bottom for the prize!
Track Name: Dying
Tricia, of abundant plainness,
cigarettes, and Smashing Pumpkins CDs
In the car for which she works her deli job
serving up meats on breads
I watch the rain hit her windshield

I'd long been aware
of the sex they shared
I'd seen them holding hands and he of course
he told me all about about it
After all, that's what friends are for

It will burn a big hole
It will ruin everything
We will all be there
We will all be dying

This cuteness and kindness
has not gone unnoticed
Now we're two dreamers
sleeping side by side
Here in this shitty motel

It will burn a big hole
It will ruin everything
We will all be there
We will all be dying
Track Name: Coach Caught Me Cryin'
We lost our lead after my clumsy fumble
I couldn't shake the sadness and the shame
I know it's not the winning that matters
But what about when it's a play-off game?

People wanna see you at the top
They gather 'round to watch you shine
But every winning streak will someday stop
And that sure changes peoples' minds

A big success knows many skillful lovers
A lucky few may always get to choose
No winner lays alone beneath the covers
Who's gonna sleep beside the ones who lose?

People wanna see you at the top
They gather 'round to watch you shine
But every winning streak will someday stop
And that sure changes peoples' minds

For every winner, there's a loser left behind
Track Name: Sad and Strange
Sad and strange, those awful things I said
Creep back through the darkness to this bed
Other people are having fights
I have calm, quiet nights
To lay here, counting the reasons I'm right

I'm hoping for another happy lovers dream
Even with the disappointment morning will bring
And as I face another day alone
I'll claim that's the cost of staying strong
Holding out hope among all the reasons I'm wrong
Track Name: The Fight
Adulterous embrace
Murderous rage
Promised by the posters as she waits in line to pay
Turning off her phone
Glad to be alone
She's in no great hurry to hear more bad news from home

It's been a hard night
And she knows she needs a rest
'cause who knows what she'll find
Returning to the mess she left behind

This is one she hasn't seen
New twist, familiar theme
She read all about it in a women's magazine
She sits and stares
Stars shine up there
Caught up in their dramas in a world where life is fair

It's been a hard night
And she's hoping for the best
'cause who knows what she'll find
Returning to the mess she left behind
