Track Name: Loyalty for Sale
Wide right
We'll never beg or borrow
Wide left
Get up and try tomorrow
Venture forth and you'll succeed
Dying words from a dying breed

Wide right
I think I missed my exit
Wide left
Nothing but shame and regret
On the street with broken shoes
The sweetest sting of feeling used

And for the first time in forever
This is not my fault
Now I'm standing at the bottom
Feeling two feet tall
I was violently awakened from the midst
Of my American Dream
Now I'm coming apart at the seams

Loyalty for Sale
A meager wage until you fail

For the first time in forever
This was not my fault
Track Name: Half Dollar
Just a half
Was enough for me
Wouldn't even kiss you
It wouldn't even hold your hand
Turn him off
Cause he's fucking loud
And that's all we do
Is sit inside and listen to you

Lock the door
Speak of silly things
The circles beneath my eyes
Start to feel like diamond rings
Burning out
Burning out
Losing my talents
How I wish we had
The will to fight it but

Speedball
And a half a dollar
You were cold but kept your cool
(That's the way we do it)
Dim the lights and tie me down
Keep my head from spinning 'round
Hide me from today
Track Name: Blood, Sweat and Beers
Picking my way through the brand new battlefield with you
Hand in hand we'll take our steps
Our minds on what we do
Another try at getting by
Another close and then last call
And if I had to be a betting man
We won't get there at all

The hardest thing I do
Is to slip away from you
With quiet kisses on your cheek
The morning pale and blue
Another try at getting by
Another chip out of the wall
And if I had to be a betting man
We won't break through at all

For what it's worth
Here we are
Always close but no cigar
We can sink our ship on distant shores
And flaunt our silver scars
So hold me close
At this bar
With open eyes and open arms
We'll toast to those without a home
'Cause life is always ours

Raise your glass to those you love
Life is always ours
Raise your glass to our mistakes
Life is always ours
Raise your glass to breaking up
Life is always ours

Raise your glass and drink with us

Raise your glass to fucking up
Raise your glass to sweetest sin
Raise your glass to stepping up, stepping out and knowing

For what it's worth
Here we are
Always close but no cigar
We can sink our ship on distant shores
And flaunt our silver scars
So hold me close
At this bar
With open eyes and open arms
Track Name: Debutante
Brave girl
Put your lipstick on
Fingers crossed
That they might not see you're gone
Jackknife
Out your backdoor now
Soft sweater, and trembling shoulders

Just meet me once
I'll kiss you twice
And if it's only for tonight
Just tell me once
I'll die twice
Cause darlin' all I need
Is someone to save me

I don't wanna bend your tiara
I don't wanna scuff your party shoes
If you're gonna ignore me tomorrow
What you got to lose?

Lamppost
The better side of town
Footsteps
Whisper secrets to the ground
Eyes meet, a flash of fire now
Singing crickets, and nervous laughter

Just meet me once
I'll kiss you twice
And if it's only for tonight
Just tell me once
I'll die twice
Cause darlin' all I need
Is someone to save me

I don't wanna bend your tiara
I don't wanna scuff your party shoes
If you're gonna ignore me tomorrow
What you got to lose?

I'll lose.
Track Name: Break Them All
It's a longer walk
Off a longer pier
I'm wishing you were here
It's Dolemite
It's a satellite
Crashing to the earth

To longer walks
Off longer piers
But there ain't nobody here
There ain't nobody here

We can't be the first
But we can bet the last
Breaking hearts all across your past
We can't be the first
But we can be the best
Lay your head right upon my chest
