Track Name: Made A Fool Of Me
Pockets of tears, they weigh
Weigh my cloudy eyes down
I cannot seem to shake
Shake my head of this silent sound
I took my feelings and locked them up
In a closet, man, I handed you the key.
You call me crazy but now I know that
The crazy one aint me

Ooh
Ooh

Remember when you told me
That you’d love me each and every night?
Remember when you told me
You said “You know I’ll always treat ya right girl”
You made a promise to help and hold me
Till my dying day, and now you’re gone
You call me crazy but now I know that
Darling, you were wrong and oh

It’s getting harder now my baby
To rearrange my frown
It’s getting harder now my baby
To rearrange my frown

Go my baby go
Take what’s yours and
Hit the road
All I wanted was for you to be kind
You took to lying
You made a fool
Made a fool
Made a fool out of me

Beautiful boy, you know
You know your looks can get you
Oh so far
Happiness comes to those
Who truly have an honest heart

It’s getting harder now my baby
To rearrange my frown
It’s getting harder now my baby
To rearrange my frown

Go my baby go
Take what’s yours and
Hit the road
All I wanted was for you to be kind
You took to lying
You made a fool out me

See when you talk that way
You send me messages that I don’t understand
What you said that day
Thought I’d believe it but I knew what you had planned
Now I can see
I can see
Now I can see
I can see

Go my baby go
Take what’s yours and
Hit the road
All I wanted was for you to be kind
You took to lying
You made a fool
Go now, I said go
Take what’s yours and
Hit the road
All I wanted was for you to be kind
You took to lying
You made a fool out of me
Track Name: I Tried
Foolish and hoping
You and me both
Wearing our young souls down

I became distant
Feeling the space
You simply weren’t around

How was your day love?
Mine was just fine
Same old story just to pass the time

Good night, I love you
Words that were true
Opened my mind
But my heart shined through

It wasn’t right
It wasn’t fair
All that you did was love me
And when you thought
That I didn’t care
The space made it hard to show it
In my mind
Oh I swear that
I tried to make my way back
To your love

Remnants of you boy
Fill up my room
Screaming my name so loud
If you only knew
What you’re doing
What you do to me love

It wasn’t right
It wasn’t fair
All that you did was love me
And when you thought
That I didn’t care
The space made it hard to show it
In my mind
Oh I swear that
I tried to make my way back
To your love
Track Name: Left Unsaid
Feels like we’ve reached a dead end
Seems like there should be more that could be said
To vouch for this place we now rest
To have what it is I feel make a little sense

Seems like I’ve been here one thousand times
I’ve always been on the outside
Guess I’ll just take my own advice
Always been so damn sure that they’d be fine

I find myself alone thinking of you
I try and act like I don’t care if you’re thinking bout me too
Were we makin’ love or was I just lovin’ you?

You’re not the one, it’s all in my head
I’ve got so much on my mind that was left unsaid
When you’re out of site, you’re out of my mind
Now you’re fucking with my plan, I don’t have the time
To be trying to separate my heart from my head.

Maybe all these miles between us
They keep us captive for a reason
Is it worse to wonder?
Or to find it’d be no different?

Your breath on my neck, it was my favorite tease
You said, “Girl you’re so amazing”
How did you mean?
Were we makin’ love or were you just lovin’ me?

You’re not the one, it’s all in my head
I’ve got so much on my mind that was left unsaid
When you’re out of site, you’re out of my mind
Now you’re fucking with my plan, I don’t have the time
To be trying to separate my heart from my head.
Track Name: Rules Within
We're all so busy
busy, makeshift
I care, but not enough

It makes me dizzy
dizzy, fake shit
cut out the senseless stuff

Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in something up above?
Do you believe in us?
Have you another who you know you trust?

Switch off the television
white noise
Put on a record now

Let's make our own decisions
with poise
Let's make our fathers proud

Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in something up above?
Do you believe in us?
Have you another who you know you trust?

What makes your skin crawl across,
your heart fall out your chest?
Have you no rules within?
What if today, what you wished for
was sure to manifest.
What would you dream of?
Who would you be with?

Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in something up above?
Do you believe in us?
Have you another who you know you trust?

How do you rule.
How do you rule within?
Track Name: Say Anything
Told him boy I mistreat ya,
A mouse in her throat
In her throat, in her throat.
Told him boy I’ve gotta leave ya
Hit him in his bones
In his bones, in his bones.

It’s a dangerous game that they're playing now
Steady fighting hard to fix the feeling now

She could say anything
He'd come running
She could say anything
He'd still love her

Cause you know he needs his lady
And you know he'll love her right until the
sun burns out
Until the sun burns out

Told her ‘Girl, you don't mean it’
Time and time again and again and again
Asked her ‘Girl, whats your reasons?’
We can try to mend it and mend it and mend it

Maybe he's at fault for empty wishing now
Let it rest, its painful repetition now

She could say anything
He'd come running
She could say anything
He'd still love her

Cause you know he needs his lady
And you know he'll love her right until the
sun burns out
Until the sun burns out 

Oohh, ooh, ooh, oohh

She could say anything
He’d come running
She could say anything
He'd still love her

Cause you know he needs his lady
She could say anything
He’d come running
She could say anything
He'd still love her
Cause you know he needs his lady
And you know he'll love her right until the
Sun burns out.
Until the sun burns out.
Until the sun burns out.
Track Name: Just Fine
What makes you think that you can walk right back?
What makes you think that I will take you back?
It took a while for me to rid my mind of your poison
What makes you think that you can walk right back?

Before you came, I never loved like that.
Before you came, I always wanted that
When you left, you never told me why
Before you came, I never hurt like that

Way back, we were younger, younger.
I needed you so bad, so bad.
I was headed under
You left me alone
Now please, oh please
You’ve got to know
You had your chance to make me yours
Can’t you see I’m doing just fine.

What makes you think you can walk right back?
What makes you think I even want you back?
It took a while for me to rid my mind of your poison
What makes you think I even need you back?

Way back, we were younger, younger.
I needed you so bad, so bad.
I was headed under
You left me alone
Now please, oh please
You’ve got to know
You had your chance to make me yours
Can’t you see I’m doing just fine.

Now I find I’m feeling sorry for your pain
And I cannot help but be a friend for you today
But despite my listening
I’ve got so much
I’ve got so much
I’ve got so much to say

I’m doing fine.
Track Name: Train Trials
Stand clear of the closing doors
The train trial’s begun, what’s in store?
Are you fed up, run down, a mother of four?
Are you twenty-one, having fun,
Feel entitled to more?

How did you get so low?
Made enough people mad, your ties, you broke.
Or were you beat so bad, your better off on your own?
Are you better off on the road?

Sway me with your pleads made up off miseries
And are you worthy of my sympathies?

You’re Mr. Pity Me
Sitting on the wrong track
Waiting for the right time
Never seem to make a dollar back
While Mr. Silly Me’s
Sitting on the right track
Making all the people laugh
Cleaning up for his dime bag
And we try
Trying to get by
Trying to get high
It’s all the same ride

He said ‘C’mon, you know me!’
Well I did not
But he had three minutes til the next stop
So by all means

Sway me with your pleads made up off miseries
And are you worthy of my sympathies?

You’re Mr. Pity Me
Sitting on the wrong track
Waiting for the right time
Never seem to make a dollar back
While Mr. Silly Me’s
Sitting on the right track
Making all the people laugh
Cleaning up for his dime bag
And we try
Trying to get by
Trying to get high
It’s all the same ride
Trying to get by
Oh, and we cry

Sway me with your pleads made up off miseries
And are you worthy of my sympathies?

You’re Mr. Pity Me
Sitting on the wrong track
Waiting for the right time
Never seem to make a dollar back
While Mr. Silly Me’s
Sitting on the right track
Making all the people laugh
Cleaning up for his dime bag
And we try
Trying to get by
Trying to get high
It’s all the same ride
Trying to get by
Oh, and we cry
