Track Name: My Name Is Duck
I know your name's not Goose, she said.
I go insane inside my head.

Everyone who wants to know what my name is
Everyone who asks to tell them my name it's

My name is Duck
Track Name: Anchors Away
Well life is short
You never see things coming

You're gonna pay for it

The smoke and the mirrors
Do not make it clearer
Isolation, fear; her name is Addiction
But it's not the end
Even though most of the time it seems hopeless

Self deception is a horrible weapon
When fighting depression, bouts of isolation
But it's not the end
Even though most of the time it seem that you'll...

Do what you gotta do
Just remember to thine own self be true
Only works if you're working it for you
It's not the enemy, despite what your brain says

The smoke and the mirrors
Do not make it clearer
Isolation, fear; her name is Addiction
But it's not the end
Even though most of the time it seems hopeless

Self medication is a horrible weapon
When fighting depression, bouts of isolation
But it's not the end
Even though most of the time it seems you're lost

Do what you gotta do
Just remember to thine own self be true
Only works if you're doing it for you
It's not the end of me.
Track Name: Merry Kitchen
15 years ago I thought I knew everything
I thought I had everything under control
I was invincible, knowledgeable and virtually unstoppable
I thought I knew the way that things would go

Look I know that we have problems
But I know that we can solve them
If we just look past these things
But now this Trojan horse is in your heart
and all that's left is just the part
When things begin to break

Now it's Mr. Asshole to me
You've got your pound of flesh
And made another set of life long enemies
There is no sympathy for the devil
You made your bed and now it's time to lay in it

You've got a chip up on your shoulder
Every day you're getting older
Still you don't trust anyone
A tyrant always finds a pretext for his tyranny
Until the day he comes undone

When you feel like right is on your side
Forget your ego and your pride
One can do evil deeds
And now this Trojan horse is in your heart
and all that's left is just the part
When things begin to break

I used to be collected but I don't remember
I used to be collected but now I'm only seeing red
Track Name: Alcoholiday
This shot of Jack is for you
You've never been untrue
This beer is for me and my family
I love Alcohol

I drink tonic and gin
I'll love you till the end
You'll always be okay by me
I love Alcohol

You'll never once hear me complain
I'll drink you every single morning, every day

I love drinking
So I say
I'm going on an Alcoholiday
I won't be back
Track Name: FYI
Life's too short for me
Fuck your irony
I don't want to be an old cliche
Life moves way to slow
Act like you don't know
And I'll promise you another way

She's overboard for sure
She's heading for disaster
She's gonna fucking blow

Life's too short for me
More so that I'm clean
Clinging to the mast with just one hand
On this sinking ship
Let loose of my grip
Just to have a chance to see dry land

She's overboard for sure
She's heading for disaster
She's gonna fucking blow

Don't

She's overboard for sure
She's swimming for the shore
The undertow is too strong
She's heard it all before
She won't make it alone
That's all been heretofore
She's going to fucking drown
We're going down
I see she's finally reach dry ground
Track Name: Jazzland Bandits (Welcome To Your New Life)
I haven't seen a cop this bad
Since Guttenburgs' Mahoney
The sheriffs and the sandwiches
Are both filled with bologna
There's the cold hard metal beds
Next to the cold hard metal crapper
And the cold hard metal bars
Next to the prosthetic-legged rapper

From the top of the Zephyr
To the bottom of the barrel
In monochromatic and itchy ill fitting apparel
There's a trainee and a geezer
And an ugly singing horde
There's a dozen of us harmonizing to another inmates' snore

There's a short little gangsta using a pen for a knife
As a Jon Gosselin doppelganger
Welcomes me to my new life
His wife can't take care of their dog
So laugh at him in Walgreens
And I flip him off just like a Pog

And now I suppose you know how the story goes
Of the Jazzland Bandits drinking Cobras and Lokos

And now I suppose you know how the story goes
of those Jazzland Bandits when they're drinking those
Four Lokos
Track Name: Scavenger Hype
You say you're always hopping trains
But you've lived here longer than me
I don't work my job
Making barley any money
Just to give it away for free

Just Give It Up
Track Name: Numbskull
Level the playing field for once
In a bucket of rust
Last minute gig I hope we can trust
Cincinnati or bust
We'll hit the books then hit the gas
Evan and Jim and Jack
We'll hit the road and forget the past
Content with not looking back

We will not admit defeat nor submit
We will never quit fighting this monstrosity
We've heard it all before

This Numbskull needs a thinking cap
Back to the drawing board
Foot in the mouth Knife in the back
What are we waiting for
Creative sparks ignite a flame
Careful we don't get burned
But we'll stay warm despite the rain
When will we ever learn
Track Name: Buddy System
We've always been the best of friends
No matter what through thick and thin
Although sometimes it's hard without you
I feel self-centered when I say
I'm glad you're gone but wish you'd stay
Because sometimes its hard without you

This last year has been a litmus test
That I've tried once before
I've always felt a little stuck

We've always been the best of friends
No matter what until the end
Although sometimes it's hard without you
I feel self-centered when I say
I'm glad you're gone but wish you'd stay
Because sometimes its hard without you

This last year has been a litmus test
That I've tried once before
I've always felt a little stuck

I'm not telling you anything
That I ain't said before
I wish you all the best of luck
Track Name: Turd In A Punchbowl
When this world hands you lemons
Just make whiskey sours
I ain't cryin' I'm not lyin'
It feels like I'm on a losing streak
Starting in '93
I ain't cryin' I'm not lyin'

Yet everybody sometimes feels like you do
Try not to let all those things get to you
Cause it's a great big wonder world outside
I'm not lyin'

Clay ripped his pants and I was dead
I shrugged it off and said
I'm not cryin' I'm not lyin'

Sometimes it's like a sinking ship
Sometimes it's like a pile of shit
Every time I try to stand up it's like something is pushing me down
And I can't seem to keep my head up
I can't seem to wrap my mind 'round
Every time I try to stand up It's like something just says

It's a great big wonderful world outside
Track Name: Straight and Narrow
I can't believe I've just been shot
I can't believe I've fought the slings and arrows off
All for this peace of mind I've got
And still I kept it on the straight and narrow path

It's all been said
It's all been done
It's all insane
It's all been fun

I kept it on the straight and narrow
I fought off all the slings and arrows
Inside my head
Inside my mind
Inside there's everything that I could ever find

I can't believe I've just been hanged
A sepia photo stuffed inside a picture frame
All for this peace of mind I've gained
Of course I kept it on the straight and narrow gait
Track Name: I'm Bad At Cake
Insecurities are my life
And with strife I've taken a stand
Against them all and if I fall
I'll try it again with help from my friends
But sometimes that's not enough for me

I question most everything I do
And it's true
It's taken a few tries and a little compromise
But I pushed through with help from my crew
And sometimes that's all I really need
Sometimes I follow and don't lead

Sometime I feel like I forget
With much regret just what I've achieved
I take a step back and look at it
What do I see?
Who I used to be?

Rock bottom seems so far away but I know
It was only ten months ago.

Sometimes that all I really need
Some mistakes I just can't repeat
