Track Name: Space Man
Swinging on a star and the chains get tangled.
What a mess.
I tried to go higher and faster, and this is what I get.
I only wanted to feel the wind rush past me
in zero gravity.

Hope that I can fly without breathing, and if I can't
I think I'll flutter back to the ceiling, and like a champ
Chalk it all up to experience,
but I'm a novice

Space man lost in the clouds
Sonic boom too loud
Space man fighting gravity
it's mad at me
and it wants to bring me down

I didn't think about the specifics about the flight
Think I should check with air traffic, it wasn't bright
Because I am not clear for take-off
I'm unidentified

And soon enough, the jets will be coming to shoot me down
So, I better find a way to explain this, or not be found
Maybe I'll just try to go higher
I'm up in orbit

Space man lost in the clouds
Sonic boom too loud
Space man fighting gravity
it's mad at me
and it wants to bring me down

Space man lost in the clouds
Sonic boom too loud
Space man fighting gravity
it's mad at me
and it wants to bring me down
Track Name: Get in the Car
Give me the map to navigate
We're notorious now for being late
It's not exactly like I lost my way
I'm just not sure where it is we're supposed to be

Did you remember to fill the tank?
Do we need to stop by the bank?
Packed the games, and packed the clothes
Everything should be set, I suppose

Get in the car
to travel far
Off we go
Don't know where we are
or where we're headed for
and I'll never know

If we start to run low on cash
We can begin that fortune teller act
Look inside the crystal ball
take the money and tell them what they want to hear

If that's a disaster, that's the breaks
We'll make a living from my guitar case
And head to where things look the best
Hit the gas, and fly out west

Get in the car
to travel far
Off we go
Don't know where we are
or where we're headed for
and I'll never know

[Solo]

Paying another month of rent
Giving the landlord that extra 5 percent
So we don't have to sign the lease
Daydream about leaving one of these...
Insert proper amount of time here.

Get in the car
to travel far
Off we go
Don't know where we are
or where we're headed for
and I'll never know
Track Name: These Times
Stop this horseplay this instant!
You're gonna break the chair
If I lean back too far
I'm gonna crack my skull wide open!
See there, look what you did
You blame it on me, like I was some kid
And now I'm gonna tell your mother!
I know she'll probably laugh
I'm laughing myself
I know, at least it makes a funny memory!
You're in deep deep doo doo now
Explain this to Lanelle
Face it, now we will have to replace it!

I wouldn't change this memory
Even if I had the opportunity
I know and you know
Times like these are great

I (I)
get lost (lost)
in my mind
When (when)
I think (think)
of these times

I saw you up ahead, switched to the other lane
And then I floored the gas and passed you!
And in my rear view mirror, I noticed you sped up
I laughed. The race for home is now official!
Didn't break the speed limit, well really not that much
Looked back, and then I signaled with my blinker!
Cut you off when it was safe,
got home first and grabbed the paper
Sat down, and acted like I'd been there all night

I wouldn't change this memory
Even if I had the opportunity
I know and you know
Times like these are great

I (I)
get lost (lost)
in my mind
When (when)
I think (think)
of these times

[Solo]

I (I)
get lost (lost)
in my mind
When (when)
I think (think)
of these times

I (I)
get lost (lost)
in my mind
When (when)

of these times
Track Name: Hello, Texas
I've got the tickets and I'm already packed up to go
I'll need to practice a lot before I put on a show
And I know the Austin heat will warm me up through my bones
Hello, Texas, I know that I'm a long way from home

It's not the farthest south I've ever been, but it's still pretty far
I'm kinda nervous 'cause I've never tried to play lead guitar
And when each night is done, I'll hang out with the guys at the bars
Hello, Texas, You'll keep a special place in my heart

Hello, Texas
Goodbye, Northwest
3 days, and 4 nights
And you guessed it, I'll go there just
to get a chance to song fight

Some might say that these words are a waste on this song
They're probably right, but I know that I'll still say that they're wrong
Until I bitch about how all of the lyrics are lame
Hello, Texas, by chance could you lend me a brain?

Hello, Texas
Goodbye, Northwest
3 days, and 4 nights
And you guessed it, I'll go there just
to get a chance to song fight

I'm turning 30, and it's kinda cool, but also it sucks
I get to celebrate in Austin, so I'm liking that much
I'm not a poet, but I know I do as much as I can
Hello, Texas, I'm bound to get sunburned or tan
Hello, Texas, I've got long hair, but still I'm a man
Hello, Texas, You could probably give a shit who I am
Track Name: Step Aside
Yeah, it's done now
And I'd say that I'm better off
Tell me
How many faces can a person have?
How many times I have to act amused while you laugh?
And it's bullshit
I know about your half-lies
And now
Do you even know I found the truth?
And do you realize I saw the proof?

Step aside, you're in my way
I'll roll right over you today
And I don't care what you say
I'm done with you
Fuck off

Oh, you had chances
And every time you used them up
Tell me
How many times would you expect me to
put up with all of the bullshit I go through?

Step aside, you're in my way
I'll roll right over you today
And I don't care what you say
I'm done with you
Fuck off

I would've never expected that you'd do me wrong the way that you did
But, you did, and now I have to admit
It's over
Goodbye

Why is it even now you still can't admit you were wrong
It's not my problem any more, so long
It's over
Goodbye
Track Name: Thanks For Coming
Just so you know, they're about to kill the lights
But, I'd like to thank you for coming here tonight
to open mic

The performers showed that they were brave
And with a beer or two, some even got on stage
It's all the rage
Don't try to sneak in again if you're underage

Thanks for coming
It's been a blast,
but all good things can't last
We'll be here next week
So, come again
And tell a friend
Thanks for coming, and good night
