Track Name: e.p. cumulative
tell me about who went where
how and why they move at all
maybe some get away for good

maybe some get away only to forget
about the state you're in now
better safe than sound

can you understand
what i meant to say
we weren't meant to say
Track Name: different colors
you're bound to get busted
if you bite on the bait
hiding the hook

(our lines are little like a lie
white as a slice of life
making me wonder)

girls are out and hotter than summer.
don't forget what your mother said about lures
the different colors and different kinds
all designed to reel you in

every now and then it'll come and it'll go
a story another told me
Track Name: tears of a town
creeping around town trying to keep up with what's going down
because i won't want you around when i can
i'll want you around when i can't have you, ever?
have you ever, hurt?
Track Name: bitter ending
as far as i know
i trust as far as i throw
so catch me if you can
and meet me way back
when better ways and better days
were just around the bend

(the closer you get
to get on with it
whatever it takes
however it breaks
better lays and better days
are just around the bend)

right on where we left off
like we never left
like we're never gonna leave again

shake it for what it's worth
just a little bit is all you'll get

we ain't what we once was
we're just a little bitter, just because.
Track Name: petty choice
time has two hands
that you can't hold
but tells you you're getting old

by the minute
by the second
by the way

it catches up to you
it keeps you down
it must be heard
so taste the sound

was it something i said?
was it something i did?
is it something i dare never do ever again?

get to the point
Track Name: in and out of style
can i get a hello
or a good buy?

if i let you wear me out
can you bring me back in style?

can i get a hello
or a good lie?

will you remember me
like our eighties old memories?
a little change from common sense
never give up a second chance

if you let me wear you out
i promise to bring you back in style

one day you're in
one day you're out
Track Name: near and dear
leave it to me
to give you up
to let you down
to make you cry
to wave goodbye
to tell that lie

leave this to me

to build you up
until everything blows

i'll believe anything at all
i'll believe anything you want
i'll believe anything that's wrong

leave it to me
Track Name: love your hideaway
if all you hear is hit or miss
if things i throw fall fast
if we seem worse for what we wear

all i said was all that i said
all i did was all that i did
all it takes is all that it takes
to make this one left to leave

where do we go now
miles and miles
Track Name: one last thing before i quit
whether it's day or night
tell her what you say all the time
whether it's rain or shine
forever we may just might

i know - why know why?

there’s something about you that i came to.
and i can’t lose the something about you,
the one thing about you, i thought i knew
