Track Name: Vagos Stevia Party
There's blood in my mouth
and my heart's on my sleeve
I've seen some things that you wouldn't believe
Blue Nunn and pedicabs at half past five

There's teeth on the ground
and my knuckles bruised
I've been used up spat out and abused
Old Style and whiskey and a thirty dollar fine

we came to party here we go
we came to party never going home
we came to party so we're not all alone

There's smoke in my lungs
as my face hits dirt
I think I'm wearing someone else's shirt
Bulleit and a boilermaker double time

There's egg on my face
and my brain's a mess
This whole song is fiction i confess
I pay my bills and I'm doing fine

we came to party here we go
we came to party never going home
we came to party so we're not all alone
Track Name: Sad Wonder Woman ...
They crowned you queen of the 90s
then they took all your drugs away
did it on your birthday
then they took at your hugs away

you can take you can take you can take it all
you can take you can take you can take it all
you can take you can take you can take it all away
Track Name: Boyd Where Prohibited
i remember you in that burger king uniform
i remember you and your punk rock hairdo
i remember you hanging in the parking lot
never knowing just what to do

sometimes i regret those chocies that i didn't make
sometimes i regret giving you that mixtape
but that's done i wouldn't trade my life for anything
if i saw you again would you know my name?

i remember you in the basement of your parents house
i remember you with your sunglasses on
i remember you hanging out in the theater
i'd look for you but then you were gone

sometimes i regret those chocies that i didn't make
sometimes i regret giving you that mixtape
but that's done i wouldn't trade my life for anything
if i saw you again would you know my name?
Track Name: (Conversation With) Jesus Christ
a conversation with Jesus Christ
San Antonio, the dead of the night
talkin about his one sacred vice
and all the hotel bars he's unwelcome in

complications of your hopscotch memory
how many left in its place
how many still remain the enemy it's
less than those returning to your side

your a storm-weathered day
i've got a half-written phrase
it's a long forgotten grace
to get
back where these veins align

gonna fade out before they burn
hearts race with every faded word
always expected more than i deserved
but i talk just like the circles around my wrist

i could hang on till i'm dead
to all these books i never read
and the lies in my head
i've held upon for the sake of quiet

conversations with jesus christ
about the failures in both our lives
revealed during his third whiskey and sprite that
miracles become water once again

it's an easy way to stay
but some minutes last for days
and all i ever wanted was your hand on top of mine
Track Name: (Don't Go) Jason Waterfalls
I don't wanna be an over night sensation
i don't wanna be the thing that gets you high
i don't wanna be an sticky situation
i just wanna be the apple of your eye

i don't wanna be useless information
i don't wanna be burn out like a fire
I don't wanna be an over night sensation
i just wanna live until i die

and they say
don't go jason waterfalls
i'm begging you to do that dance
don't go jason waterfalls
i'm begging you to take that chance

I don't wanna be an over night sensation
i don't wanna do the thing that gets you by
i don't wanna be the stupid situation
i don't wanna be the apple of your eye

i don't wanna have a messup information
i don't wanna burn out like a tire
i don't wanna be the overnight sensation
i just wanna sing till i retire

and they say
don't go jason waterfalls
i'm begging you to do that dance
don't go jason waterfalls
i'm begging you to take that chance

don't go jason waterfalls
i'm begging you to do that dance
don't go jason waterfalls
i'm begging you to take that chance
take a chance
