  1. “Small Stakes” – 3:00LYRICS
    Small stakes
    Give you blues
    But you don’t feel taken
    Don’t think you’ve been used

    Cause it’s alright Friday night to Sunday
    It feels alright keeps your mind on the page

    Oh yeah small stakes ensure you the minimum blues
    But you don’t feel taken and you don’t feel abused
    Small stakes tell you that there’s nothing can do
    Can’t think big, can’t think past one or two

    Me and my friends sell ourselves
    Short but feel very well
    We feel fine

    And small time danger in your midsize car
    I don’t dig the stripes but I go for Har Mar
    The big innovation on the minimum wage
    Is lines up your nose but your life on the page so c’mon
    Tell me I’m wrong

    Small stakes will kill time
    When you’re stuck in back of the line
    It feels alright Friday night to Sunday
    It feels alright keeps your mind on the page

    And small stakes bring you where you’re caught in a rut
    You feel so uptight you just want to throw it all up
    And small stakes leave you with the minimum blues
    Can’t think big, can’t think past one or two so c’mon

  2. “The Way We Get By” – 2:38LYRICS
    We get high in back seat of cars
    We break into mobile homes
    We go to sleep to shake appeal
    Never wake up on our own
    And that’s the way we get by

    We go out in stormy weather
    We rarely practice discern
    We make love to some weird sin
    We seek out the taciturn
    That’s the way we get by

    We found a new kind of dance in a magazine
    Tried it out it’s like nothing you ever seen
    You sweet talk like a cop and you know it
    You bought a new bag of pot, said let’s make a new start
    And that’s the way to my heart
    That’s the way we get by

    We get high in back seats of cars
    We put faith in our concerns
    Fall in love to down on the street
    We believe in the sum of ourselves
    I said that’s the way we get by

  3. “Something to Look Forward To” – 2:17LYRICS
    Now Carole don’t get ahead of yourself
    Don’t say nothing right now
    Cause I’ll take it anywhere you let it go

    Everything moving so fast
    It’ll take you a place where you can’t get back
    And I’ve seen it enough
    You gotta make me shut up

    So there’s something to look forward to
    Gimme something to look forward to

    Your mistakes your merciless eye
    Your Chicago manual of style
    It only’s got to go just as far as we let it go
    So Carole let me know

    So many things we could say
    So many things we could let get out
    But you stay in instead
    Some things are best left unsaid

    Gimme something to look forward to

  4. “Stay Don’t Go” – 3:35LYRICS
    Keep believing the things that you tell yourself
    Everyone needs something they can tell themselves
    To hold on to cause after all of it’s said and done dont you know

    Confession is stay don’t go
    Ooh it is
    Ooh now stay don’t go

    At times you find that the truth is the best way out
    Ooh well now sometimes telling the truth is the best way out
    And it’s the wrong words that make you prick up your ears
    When later alone

    Confession is stay don’t go
    Ooh it is
    Ooh now stay don’t go

  5. “Jonathon Fisk” – 3:15LYRICS
    Maybe you remember maybe you’re locked away
    Maybe we’ll meet again some better day some better life

    Mmmm Jonathon Fisk speaks with his fists
    Can’t let me walk home on my own
    And just like a knife down on my life
    So many ways to set me right

    It’s such a long way home
    It’s how the story goes
    And it’s like atom bombs and blunt razors
    Atom bomb sand blunt razors

    Jonathon then says it’s a sin
    But he don’t think twice cause to him
    Religion don’t mean a thing
    It’s just another way to be right wring
    Just like a knife down on my life
    So many ways to set it right
    That’s how it goes that’s how the story goes

    It’s such a long way home
    You’re too hold to understand
    Cause I just want to get home now
    I just want to get home now

    Jonathon’s right down on my life
    So many ways to set me right
    On the long walk home
    That’s how the story goes

    And Jonathon Fisk always a risk
    Tells me he counts my teeth every night
    I want to get them all back now
    I want to get them all back
    And I want to turn him around

  6. “Paper Tiger” – 3:07LYRICS
    I’ll never hold you back
    And I won’t force my will
    I will no longer do the devil’s wishes
    Something I read on a dollar bill
    A paper tiger can’t tell you where he stands
    We’ll go back tonight the way that we came
    I’m not dumb, just want to hold your hand

    So alright
    Where we want to be
    And alright
    What that we could be

    We could go kick down some doors together
    Stay out til morning sharp as knives
    The new war will get you it will not protect you
    But I will be there with you when turn out the light
    Said I will be there with you when you turn out the light
    I will be there with you when you turn out the light

  7. “Someone Something” – 2:48LYRICS
    Everything moves so fast I should know it won’t last
    Take some stock what you are what you see what you got

    It tells me true I want a connection to
    Someone something
    Edge of a knife been missing it all my life
    Someone something

    They get you where you live
    Don’t go back you can’t go back again

    Yes it’s true just a connection to
    Someone something
    Been up all night feel like sucking an armalite
    Someone something

    Everything moves so fast I should know it won’t last
    I want a settled life I want to be calm and polite
    Someone something
    I’ll get this right when I get there now
    Someone something

  8. “Don’t Let It Get You Down”– 3:29LYRICS
    Kay made it to where most never been
    Fixed up outside and broke within
    She always said goodnight
    Knowing the wrong from right

    But on the way the top
    They showed her things she never thought
    And left her down in the dumps
    All day and all of the night

    Don’t let it get you down

    Kay grew up without making a sound
    But skipped ahead to settled sown
    Aw won’t you come out tonight
    Don’t let it get you down
