Track Name: Fix
We tried to write our own book; it started out alright, but then it turned into a
Mess, that I can’t quite clean up; we didn’t like what we had wrote, we tore the binding from the coat

Everyone needs a fix
Some need to be fixed, so call the repairman
Everyone needs a fix
Of something special, something to hold on to

Yeah, doesn’t make you feel good
Got your arms wrapped around you
Nothing bad’s gonna happen
When, everything’s so fine, everything’s alive

Everyone needs a fix
Some need to be fixed, so call the repairman
Everyone needs a fix
Of something special, something to hold on to
Track Name: Break It
You and me, we go together like two sticks and stones and peas in a pod
You say you know you’ve got it all, but you never testify when it’s under God
Without me, you feel so bad it just ain’t right
How do you get by when you can’t even sleep at night

I can see anything from here (it’s so unreal)
I can’t be anywhere but here (here’s how I feel)

But we’re – not really meant for each other,
Not really working out that well
God knows it’s a sin to be together,
But it’s kinda hard to tell right now

When you’re around with your arms opened up wide
I feel so wanted, the happiness is hard to hide
But every time you leave, it gets cold and dark
I’ve come to realize that the bite’s worse than the bark

And every time we say good-bye
I know it’s just a lie

But we’re – not really meant for each other,
Not really working out that well
God knows it’s a sin to be together,
But it’s kinda hard to tell right now
Track Name: Girl
Left a note on the table
His baby in the cradle
She gets to bed every night she is able
Can’t pay the bills on loan
Can’t pay for the home
He took everything, all he left was the bone

Come on little girl, can you save the world, from your momma’s hurt
Go out and find a man, who won’t abandon, you little girl

Sometimes the world so drastic,
With values made of plastic,
Daddy’s gone; he knows it wouldn’t have lasted
Seems they’re movin’ on
The world keeps turning; gone
You know you’ve gotta move along

Come on little girl, can you save the world, from your momma’s hurt
Go out and find a man, who won’t abandon, you little girl

Come on little girl, can you save the world, from your momma’s hurt
Go out and find a man, who won’t abandon, you little girl
Track Name: Mistake
Step one, get out of bed
Get dressed, put my shoes on my head
Go to the cabinet and see what’s in store, but my girl took it all when she walked out that door

Look at my phone, seven missed calls from the girl at the bar who I took to the stall
There was mention of names tossed around, but I don’t recall hers even though she went down

Oh-no, I did it again
Think I’ll learn from my mistake in the end
Oh-no, I did it again
Think I’ll probably have to do it again

Step two, show up to work
With my fly pulled down and food on my shirt
At lunchtime, the bosswife came in
And suddenly, I realized, who I came in

Son of a bitch!
It’s the girl from the bar with the wedding ring on and my badge in her car
My boss just took one look at me and I ran far away with my new fake ID

Oh-no, I did it again
Think I’ll learn from my mistake in the end
Oh-no, I did it again
Think I’ll probably have to do it again
Track Name: The Family
When you’re tower of lies crash down
You gasp for air but no one is around
My bridge is burnt and my time is spent
Never see, never prevent

Blame it on me blame it on the family
Your time is done but thanks for the memory
Never again will I show you what to be
It’s the mirror you can’t see
So put the blame on me

Blank stares and alibis
You plead the fifth to no surprise
The needle left me hanging by a thread
Stitch me up and show me nothing of regret

Blame it on me blame it on the family
Your time is done but thanks for the memory
Never again will I show you what to be
It’s the mirror you can’t see
So put the blame on me
