Track Name: Deadweight Revision
Ya the days all pass
it’s too late
And now you’re caught behind the wheels in rage
Your knuckles locked, your eyes ablaze
But you’re always caught in stalemate

You been riding this road too long
Home bound
You’re hopeless son
You been riding this road too long
Stalled out, but you won't give up


given up on every chance
boy you’re Dried up
left for dead
You know you’re

Deadweight
You’re deadweight
And now you’re face to face
With the facts

So you act your age and play the part
Don’t look back, let down your guard
Hoard your cash and think you’re smart
but you’re just too soft to play your cards
to play your card
play your cards

You been riding that road too long
Home bound
Still hopeless, son
You riding that road too long
Stalled out, won’t you just
Give up

given up on every chance
boy you’re Dried up
left for dead
You know you’re
Deadweight
Track Name: Smothered in Hugs [GBV]
in the summer that you came
there was something eating everyone
and the sunshine fund was low
we couldn't greet you
with a simple hello

and the watchers of the flood
they were busy in their chambers
making sure there was new blood
to sustain their dying veins

but i believed you
no need for further questioning
i'm gonna leave with you
you can teach me all you know
which way will we go now
on our trip to taller windows
i really don't know now
i really don't know

in the winter that you left
it was business as usual
with the same old fears and frustrations
but the word got out
it was really such a pity
the judges and the saints
and the textbook committee
decided you should be left out
not even mentioned

but i believed you
no need for further questioning
i'm gonna leave with you
you can teach me all you know
which way will we go now
on our trip to taller windows
i really don't know now
i really don't know

Track Name: Lakeshore Blvd
lakeshore boulevard
stick to the nicotine
your habits
have you stuck to your routines

(timed routine)

lakeshore boulevard
commuters caught in the traffic stream
caught in the collars of charted hours
can't commit to anything
can't commit to anything
(for the timed routine)
Track Name: Loose Stones
loose stones in your head
blue lake, bottomless
hard turns, harsh rails
climb aboard
cuz there's no trail

loose stones in your gut
did they lead you
or did you come on your own?
who you told?
cuz no one's old enough

loose stones
Track Name: Here With You [Dylan]
Throw my ticket out the window
Throw my suitcase out there, too
Throw my troubles out the door
I don't need them any more
Cuz tonight I'll be staying here with you

Should've left this town this morning
But it was more than I could do
Oh, your love came on so strong
And I've waited all day long
For tonight when I'll be staying here with you.

Is it really any wonder
The love that a stranger might receive
You cast your spell and I went under
I find it so difficult to leave

I can hear that whistle blowing
I see that stationmaster, too
If there's a poor boy on the street
You can let him have my seat
Cuz tonight I'll be staying here with you

Throw my ticket out the window
Throw my suitcase out there too
Throw my troubles out the door
I don't need them anymore
Cuz tonight I'll be staying here with you.
(written by Bob Dylan)
