Track Name: Midwest Therapy
All of my friends and all of my family
They've been trying to tell me to just give it up and see
They say that I'm a man right behind his mask
They say that I'm a dreamer of the past
Not to give it up and you'll see

But I tell her to wait
and I wait and I wait and I wait

All of my friends and all of my family here
They've been trying to tell me for the past few years
They say that I laugh every time I cry
And that I smile every time I lie

But I tell her to wait
Just wait, and I wait and I wait and I wait

There's no town like this town
There's no city like this city, when my friends and family are there
Nothing you can say to me girl could make me wanna leave here to go out there
But I built this house for two
And I painted it for you
I know that you wanna leave me
But we'll stay here, because it's all about me

Just slow it down for me she said
Track Name: Miss L.U.S.T.
You're here with me
She is nothing more than her body
from whom I see
the Lust, the Pain, the Guilt, and the Tyranny
Don't give up, we're all playing the game
Her beauty is just a part of the shame

I'd expect that you've done this before
Because you're fumbling all over your words
You're on your back with your feet pointing away from the floor
And I'd expect that

Listen up because I've got something I've gotta say
If you're my prey, you might just wanna get away

I'd expect that you've done this before
Because you're fumbling all over your words
You're on your back with your feet pointing up away from the floor
And I'd expect that

Cause every doubt that I could ever live without
Cause you were my friend, I guess this was the end
And this line that I'm not trying to say
Cause you were my friend, I guess this was the end
Track Name: It's Alright
On the day that you were born, no you still hadn't got a name
So your daddy just called you Shame
And it didn't take long, no you shouldn't have to see
how he talked about you and how he hit your mom
He'd sneak into your room, call you his son, and then cut your hair too
By the young age of just 14, you had to run away just to skip his hits for that day

It's alright
No man could treat you so mean

I don't blame you, who could blame you
for looking for a little love. You were looking for a little love.
It didn't take long, no you shouldn't have to see what
he said about you and how he talked about your family
Sure, he was your first kiss but don't you forget he wasn't your first fist
By the young age of just 18, you had to work the streets just to make him some money

It's alright
No man could treat you so mean
Track Name: One You Need
Well, it takes a man to find his other
So they say, so they say
You gotta get married and have another
And he'll be born next May

Then we'll buy cars, on top of cars
We'll find another reason, I'll find another reason to save

I'm not afraid to work my forty hours a week
And I'm not afraid to work when I should sleep
Until the sweat drips down to my feet
I work this hard so my family can eat

I could be the one you want, the one you need
We could start a little family

Just like Zeppelin and Geddy Lee too
I sing about the working man and they call it the blues
Just like Zeppelin and Geddy Lee too
I sing about the 9 to 5, it's what supports me and you

Baby, just listen to you
I just listen to you
I gotta get up half past three just to make it to work
so we can be free
And when I wake up a little too late
Wake me up gently girl, for heaven's sake

I could be the one you want, the one you need
I could be the one you want, the one you need

Just like Zeppelin and Geddy Lee too
I sing about the working man and they call it the blues
Track Name: N. Dixie Rock
Nobody ever told me what to say to you
So on the first day that I met you, I didn't know what to do
Or say, what little tune I should play for you
But I played this anyways
I could have been chasing all of those other girls
Those other girls are so much easier

But that's what you do, you make me feel like I've lost my wheels

I could tip my hat, I could buy you a drink
Come as you go, and you can leave as you need
Take a plane, take a train, take a car
Come from where ever you are and promise me to you'll stay here with me
I get so weak in the knees every time I get to see
You wear those tight little things, those black lacy things
And god only knows the things you do behind those closed doors
Baby, you show me. You show me too.

But that's what you do, you make me feel like I've lost my wheels
