Track Name: Morning Fucked Up Blues
I dreamed I was a spaceship
Falling to the Earth
I held on to my notions
For all that they were worth
I broke up in the atmosphere
It didn't make the news
I woke up sad and lonely
To the fucked up morning blues

I rode the train to work today
I read the billboard ads
They said they needed money
To sell me all their fads
But timing isn't everything
I've got holes in my shoes
I'd rather hum a happy tune than morning fucked up blues

I fell asleep at work today
But dreamed I still was there
It didn't make much sense to me
But I didn't really care
My thoughts came rushing all at once
When I found out I would lose
All the things that matter most
Playing fucked up blues

My thoughts are always clearer
After I've had a few
And my voice sounds so much better
Singing fucked up blues
Track Name: Our Outside Voices
We could use our outside voices to sing away the cold
Sleep all night not through the day until we all grow old
We could win at all the games we play to pass the time
We will laugh at all the jokes and wash them down with wine

We could dance in doors tonight to sway away the cold
Spin around and not fall down cause I have you to hold
Dream it came from up above, you shouldn't rest so long
Get up from your lonely bed and face the morning sun

Maybe in the darkness we could run and not get far
Everyone I know seems to be strumming a guitar
It makes a sound just like a train to make you come right back
To breathe in smoke and rub your eyes we love the things we lack

We could use our outside voices to sing away the cold
To hold on to the rusted bandage, to have and not to hold
We could use our outside voices to bring out you know who
We could use our outside voices because we finally knew
