Track Name: Tentative Steps
Been taking tentative steps into real life
I always wondered what it'd feel like

Sweet ex-girlfriend, we met such a sad end
Watched you drive away down Ivy through my tears
I never hurt so much before or since
You confirmed all of my darkest fears
I knew then I wasn't ready for prime time

And I guess I've never been ready for real life
That's why I've wanted you back at my side
You could've jetted me back to the old lies
You could've draped the wool back over my eyes

But now that you're getting married in real life
I've got to straighten up and fly right
I've got to be the sweet friend in your mind's eye
I've got to trust you just this one time

Sweet ex-girlfriend, we met such a sad end
Watched you drive away down Ivy through my tears
I never hurt so much before or since
You confirmed all of my darkest fears
I knew then I wasn't ready for prime time

But now I believe that I'm ready for real life
And I'm not gonna let you down this time
I think I'm finally ready for real life
'Cause I want to call you a friend of mine
Been taking tentative steps into real life
I always wondered what it'd feel like

Sweet ex-girlfriend, we met such a sad end
Watched you drive away down Ivy through my tears
I never hurt so much before or since
You confirmed all of my darkest fears
Track Name: Free Trip to Austin
Spending time dead
I've been on a little deadcation
Filming on location
In the state of desperation

Spending time dead
And lacking the motivation
To even complete the application
For a visa to leave my head

A free trip to Austin
Seemed like such a bargain
My folks even pitched in
Feels like I'm still recovering

'Twas the best time I ever had
But somehow my overzealous timekeeping services
Couldn't stop me falling back down to my knees again
And that's just where I've been

Spending time dead
On a little deadcation
Riding back & forth from station to station
Searching in vain for inspiration

Still I can't say I regret
Pledging my sword to the young master
Trying to get his regime installed faster
Trying to be the brother and the fan I wish I'd had

And accepting a free trip to Austin
When it seemed like such a bargain
My folks even pitched in
Feels like I'm still recovering

'Twas the best time I ever had
But somehow my overzealous timekeeping services
Couldn't stop me falling back down on my knees again

And that's just where I've been
But I've got to get up again
I'm going back to Austin, gonna pay my own way
Gonna let the chips fall wherever they may

I know there's more to life
Than pounding on the skins
Carrying the water for the leader
Of a histrionic hipster clan

A free trip to Austin
Seemed like such a bargain
My folks even pitched in
Feels like I'm still recovering
From the best time I ever had
Track Name: Hide
I'm still out of my mind
Maybe that's just life
Maybe it's just who I am
Too bad I can't get born again
Can't get born again

I can't get over you
Whoever I'm referring to
I can't forget your face
I can't remember your embrace
I can't forget your face
Can't remember your embrace
Can't remember your em-

-brace yourself, we are going
Down to Earth, it is happening
Now or never, I can't de-
c/side by side, let's hide

Thought someday I might grow up
Too bad that concept's made-up
By people who are old
So they can be in control
So we'll put them in control

Well as for me, I'm always gonna be right here
Day-in day-out & year after year
I guess I'm always gonna have my doubts
So I might as well spit 'em out
I'm always gonna have my doubts
I might as well spit 'em

Out of strikes, sit down, ride the pine
You got a lot to think about
You're on timeout

Brace yourself, we are going
Down to Earth, it is happening
Now or never, I can't de-
c/side by side, let's hide

Side by side, let's hide
Track Name: Portland or Prague
I can't imagine that I'll never get to fuck you
After all the years of sex I turned down
The other dollies were always longshots at best
But one screw from you seemed like a pretty safe bet

And I'd have followed you to Portland or Prague
I would've given up and gotten a real job

I can't imagine how I'll ever get to fuck you
Finally got free, then you shot me down
So I wrote this searing masterpiece, so what's new?
When will the comfort I seek ever be found?

I'd gladly follow it to Portland or Prague
I'd fertilize an egg or two and get a real job

Do you imagine that I'll ever get to fuck you?
Do you imagine that I'll ever get to?
I can't imagine that I'll never get to fuck you
Yet I can't imagine how I'll ever get to
Track Name: Sweet Chokehold of Hindsight
I guess every man's a method actor in his way
But we're all only extras when the world's our stage
If you really want a speaking part you better read off the page
We'll call ya, babe
We'll call ya, babe

So you're gonna be a method actor? Son, that's great
Just don't rule out turning down a role someday
You're gonna have to play yourself to promote every play
Anyway, anyway
Anyway

In the sweet chokehold of hindsight
How you strive in vain towards the truth that's plain
Where blobs obscured by spotlights
Devour and validate your pain

And this arc is only madness
When you start to deconstruct it
When you inhabit it, you're fine

Until you believe it, no one else will
So immerse yourself in it like a language till
You start dreaming in it, then go on & try to make the dream will
I bet you will
Bet you will

If you want to be a method actor, that's okay
But remember to retire before you waste away
You're gonna have to get right with you or one of these sunny days
There's gonna be hell to pay
Hell to pay, hell to pay, hell to pay

In the sweet chokehold of hindsight
How you strive in vain towards the truth that's plain
Where blobs obscured by spotlights
Devour and validate your pain

And this arc is only madness
When you start to deconstruct it
When you inhabit it, you're fine
Track Name: ⅗
We made each other so much better lovers
But we don't get to reap the benefits

I know you want to be happy, and you should be
Hope you always will be, with or without me
I know you're not angry, just in love with somebody
Who happens to be not me, and that drives me crazy

You know the last five years have been quite the shit show
If they'd been alright, maybe I could forget you
Got three-fifths of a lifetime to figure it out though
Why I let you go…

We made each other so much better lovers
But we don't get to reap the benefits
From hand to mouth we really helped each other
Out from underneath the innocence

You know the last five years have been quite the shit show
If they'd been alright, maybe I could forget you
Got three-fifths of a lifetime to figure it out though
Why I let you go…

I only want to be happy, don't wanna give you no more grief
Don't wanna cause no scene at your wedding
Lasso up my friends, say, "Come on, we're leaving
She crossed the red line, now you're all all mine

'Cause she moved on with her life--how could she?
Can't she understand how inconvenient that is for me?
Doesn't she know I want her more than anything
Now that she's let me go?
I want to make a toast:

We made each other so much better lovers
The blushing groom now reaps the benefits
From hand to mouth we really helped each other
Out from underneath the innocence."
Track Name: Lastime
I'm sorry I'm an older guy
An older guy than last time
Don't have as many years to spare now
This love's been quite the pastime

It's aged my heart, it's aged my face
It's kept me in this awful place

I'm sorry if my bright blue eyes
Lost some shine since last time
You reel 'em in, you bug 'em out again
You always make such fast time

So let them leak, what's a few more weeks?
So let them burn and drench my cheeks

Couching my anger in song after song
Am I in danger of becoming a stranger to all?
Forking it over for others to embellish
And take credit for what haunts me evermore

Well lucky you, you're older too
Not half as blue as last time
There's nothing left for you and me to do
'Cept maybe talk it through one last time

It's wrecked my body and my soul
Just knowing you're in full control
Track Name: Make it Count!
are you making it count?
there's nothing else worth worrying about
'cause you'll only ever be right here, right now
so just make it count, make it count

till you're making it count
nobody's gonna come along & fish you out
and time ain't gonna bring you anything but doubt
so just spit it out, make it count, spit it out

freewheeling young lovers, beaming expectant mothers
those, these & the others will all conspire to bother you
till you will just make it count
Track Name: Business
glimpsed you through the double-wall on a barren stage
never got my bearings in the golden age
but you were always so easy to talk to
and you're the only one who seemed to get my songs

and i always really liked you
always hoped that there would come a time
when i could throw my arms around you
and you'd teach me how to read your mind
the way i practically begged you to read mine

seems to me we synched up when you come along
looking back, guess i became the man i thought you'd want
you made it seem so easy to please you
you made me feel as if i could do no wrong

and i always really liked you
always hoped that there would come a time
when i could throw my arms around you
and you'd teach me how to read your mind
the way i practically begged you to read mine

yeah i always really liked you
and i swore i saw between the lines
that someday we'd surely start anew
get down to business and our real lives
where i would be yours and you mine

took to writing songs without a subtle touch
took to sharing just a little bit too much
working so hard to make you snap to
as though a song has fuck-all to do with real life

to this day i really like you
and hold out hope there's gonna come a time
when i can throw my arms around you
and you'll teach me how to read your mind
although you never even needed to read mine

yeah i always really liked you
and i swore i saw between the lines
that someday we'd surely start anew
get down to business and our real lives
where i would be yours and you mine
