Living In A Movie

Featuring Aimee Blackschleger & Kelly Haalvaldsrud

Oh every time
oh they never smile at me
Oh and all the signs
and all the light I need
I saw her face
it all seems fake but deep
I saw a place is there any space for me
to breathe
I just need to rest and to request and plead
Why can't I forget
why are you so upset with me?
Are you only here to test me
and to treat me bad
Feels like living in a movie
Is this the best you've ever had
well that's alright now
Oh every time
Oh they never smile at me
Oh all the times and
all my life believed
And with due respect there's nothing left to this mess
nothing I conceive
I miss your face I miss our place
I need you
Are you only here to test me
and to treat me bad
Feels like living in a movie
Is this the best you've ever had
Are you only here to test me
and to treat me bad
Feels like living in a movie
Is this the best you've ever had
Said she's gonna leave the country
and find a life outside of me
Are you only here to test me?
Or am I testing me?

Message On The Rail

She lies patient in the wind
and isn't this a stranger that I've not met
To waste your youth and innocence
Let's take a photo when I'm not there
This is the last time I can see
When all my friends and TV stars have left me
The length of life on earth is really hard to tell
I'll send a message on the rail
He said son don't die alone
feels like I'm tripping in a black hole
Don't die alone
can't you see your cup is half full
I couldn't leave myself alone
and all my hope in government has left me
the length of life on earth is really hard to tell
I'll send a message on the rail
He said son don't die alone
feels like I'm tripping in a black hole
Don't die alone
can't you see your cup is half full
and isn't that that the way it outta be?

Wash You Away

Oh baby it's a mystery to me and I'm tired
Quit saying you don;t really wanna see me when it ain't the way you're feeling now
Oh baby I
When you see me in the corner and you see that I can see you I just sigh
those summer rains wash you away without a sound
those summer rains wash you away see it all the time
Oh baby it's a mystery to me and I'm wired
when I see you in a picture and I see that you are moving in the middle of the night
Maybe 12 o'clock Maybe 1 o'clock
it don't matter much to me tonight
Oh baby it's a story that i told ya oh so many times
those summer rains wash you away without a sound
those summer rains wash you away see it all the time
and then I sneak in oh oh oh
Oh baby it's a mystery to me and I'm crying
Oh baby I just can't attempt and won't accept
I just feel blind
it's a beer and I'm wasting my life in another innocent time
Oh baby it's a dinner and a movie and a dinner and the theatre
I don't think so
Oh baby it's a mystery to me and I'm wired
oh baby did you lie
Oh baby it's a mystery to me and I'm tired
Oh darling did you lie? Did you lie?
did you lie? Did you lie? did you lie
Oh baby did you lie?
those summer rains wash you away without a sound
those summer rains wash you away see it all the time
Those summer rains wash you away I see it all the time
Oh baby it's a mystery to me and I'm tired
Oh baby did you lie?

How You Really Feel

When I can't get you off my mind
You know I die a bit inside
with your kiss and the bliss
it brings a chill to my knees
It's getting harder and harder to hide
to hold my breath in my soul
I wanna know how you really feel
I wanna know what you said is real
I wanna know how you really feel
I wanna know what you said is real
wanna know how you really feel
that's the sorrow I can steal
Stop with these stupid games
you know I've played them all before
Yeah flash your saccharine smile
as I'm closing up my doors
Say what your gonna say
and throw your stone through my glass walls
I wanna know how you really feel
I wanna know what you said is real
I wanna know how you really feel
I wanna know what you said is real
wanna know how you really feel
that's the sorrow I can steal
I can not resist
I will not conceal
all I want to know
Is why do I exist
I wanna know how you really feel
I wanna know what you said is real
I wanna know how you really feel
I wanna know what you said is real
wanna know how you really feel
that's the sorrow I can steal

Wandering Circles Around The Moon

Featuring Julian Peters

Time's not on my side
No time's not on my side
and I spend my very last dime
on this big ol' bottle of wine
and I drink until I'm sick
cus I thought it'd do the trick
but not this time
Time's not on my side
No time's not on my side
and I spend my very last dime
on this big ol' bottle of wine
and I drink until I'm sick
cus I thought it'd do the trick
but not this time
Wandering circles round the moon for you
searching hoplessly to find out that I've got no clue
time won't wait for me
Time's not on my side
No time's not on my side
and I spend my very last dime
on this big ol' bottle of wine
and I drink until I'm sick
cus I thought it'd do the trick
but not this time

Tughill

its been a damn cold winter
jumped through the snowbanks laughing hand in hand
its been a damn cold winter
never ever thought it''d ever get this bad
its been a damn cold winter
told me all the reasons all the reasons that you're sad
its been a damn cold winter
don't ask me to love you
don't ask me cause I can't
There's an old man living at the top of Tug hill
and the dogs tail wagging made the moonshine spill
Wants to get on back on down to his ex yeah
with ten feet of drift and his hand on his chest
its been a damn cold winter
jumped through the snowbanks laughing hand in hand
its been a damn cold winter
never ever thought it'd ever get this bad
its been a damn cold winter
told me all the reasons all the reasons that you're sad
its been a damn cold winter
don't ask me to love you
don't ask me cause I can't
Gotta get on back on down to old Jeb's
with peanuts on the floor and a gin in her hand
she' got a smile that you'll never never ever ever forget no
this old man's heart is breaking again, again
its been a damn cold winter
jumped through the snowbanks laughing hand in hand
its been a damn cold winter
never ever thought it'd ever get this bad
its been a damn cold winter
told me all the reasons all the reasons that you're sad
its been a damn cold winter
don't ask me to love you
don't ask me cause I can't
Its nearly 20 below
Its nearly 20 below
its nearly 30 below
its nearly 40 below
its been a damn cold winter

Guilty Dance

there's too much inspiration in the streets
I'm chasing I'm chasing I'm chasing I'm chasing that vibe
There's too much motivation in my feet
Making love to you it ain't no crime
Dancing by the river Dancing on the bar room floor
I don't give a damn about you no more
Why don't you take your clothes off
and we'll take a swim
If I'm guilty I want you to show me some evidence

I don't wanna be no more
If I'm guilty Guilty no no
Yeah! If I'm guilty Guilty no no

Wisdom Teeth

My baby's got wisdom teeth
don't take nothing from me
I know that's hard to believe
stop taking all this air from me
its getting kinda hard to breath
it such a rare thing to see
I said oh
Every time she takes away every piece of me
tears falling to her feet
She's down on the floor can't take anymore
it's a shame
Just a blind girl trying hard to see
S U C K I N G its as easy as 1 2 3
why does she give this attitude to me?
She begging begging begging me please
Shes on her knees and telling me
this ain't some god damned fantasy
I said oh
My baby's got wisdom teeth
don't take nothing from me
I know that's hard to believe
stop taking all this air from me
its getting kinda hard to breath
it such a rare thing to see
I said oh

Will Erase

All my dreams seem to fade into another dream
Every day I will be away
and ride another wave
Take me far away from here
so I can live again
Tear me up Tear me into PEACE
just like a paper sheet
Please don't leave again
its just a phase
Please don't leave again
I saw your crying face
All my dreams seem to fade into another dream
thoughts speed
on until we live a thousand years
all that money
in the world wont be
its not enough for you
Take me there
take me in a breeze
give me release

Only Lets You

She's mumbling something
something about love
Its not exactly all
not exactly all these things she's dreaming of
She got the best of me
even stole my peace of mind
She got the best of me
And now I can't even look her in the eye
It seems to me destiny
just wants to spit in my eye
go ahead and try
Only lets you have a little time
Sexual trist
it will never satisfy
This logic
I challenge you to defy
Don't be ridiculous
you think that I fall in love on the first time
Don't be ridiculous
You think that you're the only guy in my life
It seems to me destiny
wants to spit in my eye
go ahead and try
Only lets you have a little time
She's mumbling something
something about love
its not exactly all
not exactly all the things she's dreaming of
she got the best of me
even stole my peace of mind
She got the best of me
and now I can't look her in the eye
It seems to me destiny
just wants to spit in my eye
go ahead and try

Mr. Cushing

When will I see my dreams?
doesn't seem like today
And when will I be at peace?
doesn't seem there's a way
and I thought about living less
cause I thought
its the best way
to hide away from my mind
then I got out of line
Then music saved my life
Time stood still
We laughed, and danced, and cried
We drank our fill
So fuck your rules and die
I cant do this anymore
All i ever heard was no
You cant do that
Suppress me and arrest me
Yeah, do your best
Cause man we need a change
Yeah brother we need that change
I cant do this
I cant walk I cant move
I cant see anything
take those shoes off your feet
swear to me that you are me
I cant smoke I cant drink
I cant do anything
I don't know who I am
I don't know myself anymore
All I ever heard was no no no
You can't do that
Suppress me and arrest me
Yeah, do your best
Cause man we need a change
Yes, I need to change
I can't do this

Conditions

Baby's in the kitchen and
dying cause she wishing she could be in another place
Baby's in her own mind crying for mankind
hoping for some sort of change
Baby's on the train tracks praying for a broken back
How bout that
Don't stop now fires burning
and the stars are shooting straight up
Conditions change at times
And continue to happen
whether or not you change your mind
Darlings on the stair steps standing with her feet wet
towel around her waist
Darling wants some power
instead of some damn coward she gives a lot away
she does not take
Baby's got a death book
taking one last look
a recipe for life
Baby takes her last breath sinking feeling
whats left?
wants to do whats right
Shaves her head pretends she dead
forgot what I said and flies into the the night

Tales of the Old Whiskers (Instrumental)

All The Things (2014)

Fumble Around

You fumble around Trying to find out 

Cracks in the road
 Pie in the sky 

Takin’ you home even though 
 You don't know

I ain't the kind for takin’ things slow

(You fumble) Give me some more whiskey

(And stumble) And those hands just keep them on your glass

(You're trouble
) Tonight I'm sorry baby but
This ass will be the last you’ll get from me

Heard what ya gotta say, 
It don’t make sense to me

You wanna take things slow 
I wanna take you home
.Yeah!
like a tomcat on a stroll 
I wanna take you home with me

You fumble around 

Trying to find out
 Cracks in the road.

Pie in the sky 
Takin’ you home even though 
You don't know

I ain't the kind for takin’ things slow. Oh no!

Heard what ya gotta say, 
It don’t make sense to me

You wanna take things slow 
I wanna take you home
.Yeah!
like a tomcat on a stroll 
I wanna take you home with me

Three Days Before Friday

It's three days before Friday
 And I’m high
Sweats breaking in the evening 

I don't think I'm gonna make it
They all say you're lookin’ good

I’ll make it through just one more night 

Your body gives me fever

Things are lookin up for me

Young and taunt 
I’m full of cum
 about to give it up

It's 3 days before Friday And I'm high
It's 3 days before Friday And I'm high

Talking with my buddy I’m not sure just where I’ll go 

Head on down to the local bar and park my body there

Someone thought that I was broken hearted with a bottle and my friends

I think bout’ calling you cus I just can't relax

It's 3 days before Friday And I'm high

Meet me in the dark
 Lights are broken down
Hit me with your touch 
I just wanna fuck
 Fuck

It's 3 days before Friday And I'm high
It's 3 days before Friday And I'm high
It's three days before... And I'm high
And I'm high Already, owww!!!

Far out but Not Far Down

I was so far out
So far out but not far down 
Yeah, I was so far down so far down
But not far out 
I went inside this myriad of eyes 
I went inside, I lied I was so far down 
So far down but not far out 
Yeah, I was so far down so far down
But not far out 
I went inside a pyramid of lies
I went inside and lied

I dove inside 
This water was so deep 
I was so far down so far out but not far down 
Yeah, I was so far down so far down
But not far out, down
I went inside this myriad of eyes
I went inside and lied

I went inside
This water was so deep
And I feel fine
I went inside
I lied 
I lied

It Isn't Tomorrow Today

It isn't tomorrow today,
Full frontal chest out on display.
Getting uncovered this way,
Causes my life some dismay.
But I'm not a fool She takes me to school.
Broken glass sits on the floor.
Bourbon sure I'll have just one more,
I see the red gloss on her lips,
Cigarette stains on my finger tips.
Not going away, At least not today.

All these bars that I've been, All these bodies I'm sleeping in,
Yours is the one I can't leave, It's time I got back, Back to my dream...
I won't let it fade away. Won't let you say that it's over today.
Mountains are here to stay, Conceal my bones and disintegrate

It isn't tomorrow today,
Lay on my back and anticipate,
Seems like forever I wait,
Metaphors fade,
She leaves in the night but I'll be alright, Yeah!

All these bars that I've been, All these bodies I'm sleeping in,
Yours is the one I can't leave, It's time I got back, Back to my dream...
I won't let it fade away. Won't let you say that it's over today.
Mountains are here to stay, Conceal my bones and disintegrate
I stare at the clouds all day, We'll do this again when I'm sober someday....(when I'm sober)

It isn't tomorrow today, It isn't tomorrow today, It isn't tomorrow today,
Quit wasting my time

Coffee

I went to your show, went to your show
and I knew I needed your number
Drank all the way, Drank all the way and I snooze
Open my eyes, Open my eyes and I knew
was dreaming about you
Smoking a butt, Smokin' a butt and I knew

Look at your name look at your face
and I look I found your address.
I'll contact you.
It was a good show
meet me for coffee at 10 a.m.

Talking to her it became blaringly clear
She don't drink coffee
racking my brain to come up with some idea
Other than coffee
I keep racking my mind
and seeming fine I'll be o.k.
as long as she likes tattoos

Look at your name
look at your face and I look
I found your address. I'll contact you.
It was a good show
meet me for something at ten a.m.

Look at your name
look at your face and I look
I found your address.
I'll contact you
it was a great show
meet me for whiskey
and join my band yeah
join my band
PLEASE!!!!!

Rendezvous

The rain is falling
Drowns the earth at my feet
The mud is calling
It's time for us to meet

The moon is rising
I feel the blood in my veins
To kill is lusting
To crush your soul in the wind

Just come out and justify all your sins
Just reach out and I'll take your hand in mine
Just come out and you'll see I'm worthy of trust
Just come out, there'll be no mercy for you

The phone is ringing
I come at the sound of her voice
What's the rush?
Do you regret your last one choice?

The moon is rising
I feel the blood in my veins
To kill is lusting
To crush your soul in the wind 

Why don't you come and seek comfort in me?
Love is the root of all the heaven you're in
Time is the savior that will pull you back in
Why don't you come and seek comfort in me?

All the Things You Never Are Again

Stronger is the man who stands up when he can,
and manages to wipe sleep from his eyes.
Greeting the day with tabaco in his lungs.
Walks down the street to get some kicks.
Paintings fill the air and you get those funny stares
when someone thinks you kinda look like you behave.
All the things we've gone through
And all the shit I've told you
seems to wash up in a thing you think is...love..
And although very strange it seems to make sense in a way.
And all my hopes convey a message in a different.. kind of wording,
In a different kind of head­trip
And I think your trying to make me a smile
But I think I'm thinking from now on
That all the things that make me smile
take second place for a while
Cause nothing can make you feel real good
Cause you just never understood that you're alright
For being all the things you never are...again

Waiting In Line

Look into my eyes

Your eyes 
I’ll never roll over again

And in my mind

My mind
 There’s nothing important to me
Fly oh so high

So high I see for a million miles

So high that I

So high I’ll never start over again

Never wanna be that guy

Never wanna do these things that you do

Don’t wanna take that time

Never wanna do things that you do
when you're waiting in line Alright!

I trust my life

There's gotta be something that's better for you

You waste my time

So many chances are going away

Away

Never wanna be that guy

Never wanna do these things that you do

Don’t wanna take that time

Never wanna do things that you do when you're waiting in line GO!

Look into my eyes

Your eyes 
I’ll never roll over again 

I fly so high

So high I see for a million miles

So high that I

So high I'll never start over again
Just you!

Never wanna be that guy

Never wanna do these things that you do

Don’t wanna take that time

Never wanna do things that you do when you're waiting in line

Waiting in line 

Waiting in line 

Waiting in line

Smoke

I don’t need no pity nor patience
Induced grace is not my option
Savor I will in these self-lacerations
Salvation’s mine and mine alone

I don’t need no pity nor patience
Don’t need an embrace or a call
No kiss, touch no vanilla lessons
This vexed soul the white smoke will console

I don’t need your pity or patience
I don’t need your pity or patience
I don’t need your pity or patience
Kindled eyes and skin is stained

I don’t need no pity nor patience
Don’t need no delightful control
I don’t need your strength nor resilience
This vexed soul the white smoke will console

Kiss his toes and wipe his feet, kneel and pray before you sleep
The joyful from your soul I beat how can you make your mother weep

No one needs your pity nor patience
