Dusk Intro 00:53
Mark: What's up? Eric: Hey. Mark: You ready to do this? Jon: Uh... do what?

Cranking Sloan on the radio Until it rattles the plate on the tailgate Cruise on out to The Silver Ball You can try to beat my high score And once you whoop my ass in Galaga We know it's time to go I said let's go! We'll scare them half to life, because death is all they wrote When they come around, girl, we'll be gone to paint this town up right You got me going so I don't know left from wrong You're so out of sight I can't tell sky from ground You got me going like I don't know left from wrong You're so out of sight I can't tell sky from ground So it's off to the show To hear a couple fools band around on stage Out at the bar where obscure is cool As long as you've been seen These hipster kids, emo teens Bob their heads and tap their feet I'll be damned if it's me getting old or the scene Come on let's go We'll scare them half to life, because death is all they wrote When they come around, girl, we'll be gone to paint this town up right You got me going so I don't know left from wrong You're so out of sight I can't tell sky from ground You got me going like I don't know left from wrong You're so out of sight I can't tell sky from ground

Just My Type 04:03
You, my dear, smell of cheap wine and cigarettes Frankly, it's making me sick Trying hard to pass the time Late nights filled with drinking and compromise What a life Well, I... I don't want to live that life And I... I can tell you're not my type So let's just move along, consider me gone You there, girl, not so bright upstairs From the look in your eyes you're not all there Trying hard to dodge the times Late night stalking, drunk dialing Are you out of your mind? Well, I... I don't want to live that life And I... I can tell you're not my type So let's just move along, consider me gone You, my friend, where've you been all this time? From the smile on your face we fit just fine Trying hard to find the time Late nights jive talking, speaking our minds What a find Well, I... I think I could live that life And I... I can tell you're just my type So let's just get it on Come on, girl, you know we belong Together, together You, my love, put up quite the fight Oh, but tell me anything's ever felt this right before

Pay The Bill 03:45
Coffee stains and sugar spattered on my thoughts Stare a hole right through the wall And these orange neon lights fade into my brain With this ringing in my ear like a rock 'n' roll cliche Oh, all the while... That dark-haired girl across the way Glanced to me her dreams and then quickly turned away Those bloodshot eyes across from her Is who she's taking home again, tonight, with her Sitting at the counter a few miles outside of normal With a pen of broken thoughts in hand You can take this inspiration with my low estate And wash it down the drain Just keep that vinyl playing as I fall asleep Nodding off with much to say That dark-haired girl across the way Glanced to me her dreams and then quickly turned away Those bloodshot eyes across from her Is who she's taking home again, tonight, with her Entertaining thoughts that never cross her mind Brewing up inside, stretch that smile From end to end and head to tail Turn it back to you, you think he should pay the bill Pay no mind, pay no mind, walk on by, yeah Just walk on by and pay no mind, yeah, yeah, yeah

Nowhere Town 04:55
She says he was brought about to bring the rain But you know sometimes the tears well up from within She says there's not always going to be This empty void and lack of sleep But the world should feel her empathy So close your eyes and fill your lungs with the smell of autumn leaves These trying times will come to change, so do what you do to ease your troubled mind Have a smoke, a drink, and darling, lay your head to sleep In the morning I'll be gone, it'll all come back around Just turn your eyes to the sunny side of the street When you drive, drive, drive There's nothing here to hold you down, just pick-up and leave this nowhere town They might notice that you're gone, but you won't miss them for long In case you lose your way, you know of a place where it's alright for you to stay I think you'll find when you return Nothing really changes, people come and go And these deadbeats keep on hanging out growing weary by the moment Patience wearing thin, I think it's time to find a new place to live
