Track Name: Mama Help Me
My Mama called me on the phone
said how’s my baby doin’
when are you coming home

And I can’t say that I’m doing fine
I’m just killin’ time
Going out tonight

No, I can’t tell you that I’m fine,
seriously speaking Mama,
I think I’m losing my mind

And I don’t know what it is about this town
It’s keeping me down
I just can’t get around it

Don’t wanna think that Life’s a joke
I’m choking on this cigarette smoke
I’m getting drunk,
I’m going broke.
I just spent my last token.
Yeah, it’s a possibility
all these things are killing me you see

Oh, my my my Mama Help Me please.

I drink until I’m half dead
Always trying to clear my head
Always trying getting nothin
When does that amount to something?
Yeah, it’s a possibility
all these things are killing me so please.

So Mama, thank you for the call
Cause your little darling’s just one step before the fall
And I don’t know if it’s right or wrong
I’m just trying to get along
Keep singing the same sad songs, because

Don’t wanna think that Life’s a joke
I’m choking on this cigarette smoke
I’m getting drunk, I’m going broke
I just spent my last token
Yeah, it’s a possibility
all these things are killing me, you see
Mama help me please...
give me some money
get me back on my feet
Track Name: When it's Over
You’d think that time would stop it
or I’d just drop it
But I go out & spend my last dime
Waste all my precious time
When it’s over…
When it’s over
and I should have known

Cause actually if you got to know me
You’d think all of them are phony
I fall, but I just don’t care
Keep looking back at your blank stare

Well, it’s over…
When it’s over
and I should have known

Well, you think that I like the abuse
What did I ever see in you
When I know that it’s just not right
Why should I go and put up a fight?

‘Cause it’s over…
When it’s over
and I should just go
When it’s over…
When it’s over
and I should just go

‘Cause I know you won’t listen to me
Oh, when you look right through me
Try to grab it and I think it’s a cinch
then you turn around and do it again

Well, it’s over…
when it’s over
and I should have known
When it’s over…
When it’s over
and I should just go
When it’s over…
Yeah, it’s over…
and I should have known.
Track Name: Never Do it Again
Well, I’m so hungry for your love
but I know that I could never get enough
so I pray to the gods every day,
“Give me something I can save.”
‘Cause although this time will end
I know I’ll never do it again

When I see what’s become of me
And I feel the prowess of these broken dreams
I don’t know how far or which way to go
Give me something I can hold
When the night goes by so slow
And I know that I just don’t know

And I found that timing will burn (it will burn)
as I keep waiting on my turn (my turn)
and I see the fork in the road…
Come on, can’t you tell me which way to go?

‘Cause I’m so hungry for your love
but I know that I could never get enough
so I pray to the gods every day,
“Give me something I can save!”

And although this time will end
I know I’ll never do it again

No, I’ll never do this again
I wonder when it all will end (oh, it will end)
and I see the fork in the road
Come on, can’t you tell me
Which way to go?
Track Name: To Whom it May Concern
To Whom it May Concern,
I found the letter
and read the words
That struck me so deep
that pushed me into
this dark underworld with you

The one’s of mysteries of old
when you came along
And once when life was pure
And love wasn’t riddled

To Whom it May Concern,
I took the pictures
that showed a world
That framed the faces of horror
you won the battle, but lost the war

And once when life was pure
and love wasn’t bitter…
When you looked misty in the eye
and love was blind and I feel it rise

You came along…

To Whom it May Concern,
I found the letter
and wrote the words
The ones that mysteries hold
When love wasn’t riddled
And once when life was pure,
you won the battle,
but lost the war.
Track Name: A Long Way Down
You stand in the doorway
with nothing to say
You’re tired,
and I’m worn out.

You sit on the bed
head in your hands, again
Stifling the air, but then
You’ve come a long way down
You’ll figure it out

A long way, long way down,
but you’re still here.

You’re picking up slack
say you wanna find your way back
Caught in a trap with no returns

You shout in your sleep
how could anybody want to do that to me
You’ve come a long way, long way down
You’ll figure it out

A long way, long way down
but you’re still here

The essence and the meaning of the motion
still fits betwixt the reasonings of the way we are
The fallen eye, the holy eye
embedded in the universe

I know because
I’ve fallen down and I’ve fallen hard
The best you can do is to find what is right for you

That’s when you pick yourself up
and brush yourself off
and find something to believe in
somehow to live again.

The essence and the meaning of the motion
still fits betwixt the reasonings of the way we are
The fallen eye, the holy eye
embedded in the Universe
The Universe, found in the human world.
Track Name: Just a Man
I was in your bedroom
but it seemed like nothing to you
Nothing special, nothing new.

But she was new
I was too in a way, but
Nothing special
And I couldn’t say
You’re so wrong,
but I still love you.
An idiot,
with an idiot’s point of view.
And I’m a fool,
but that is nothing new.

It’s not the first time
I came in second,
but I just can’t understand
when you says you’re just a Man.

So that’s that
you wanna fuck my friends
This must really be the end
you see it as
nothing broken, nothing worn.

And I’m so torn apart
by the lack thereof
And there’s no love in this room
No, nothing special, nothing new.

It’s not the first time
I came in second,
no, I just don’t understand
when he says you’re just a Man

No, it’s not the first time
I came in second,
no, I just don’t understand
when he says you’re just a Man

You were my muse
but it seemed like nothing to you
Nothing special, nothing new.
