Track Name: Alcohol
I punched a hole in the wall
Alcohol makes me do things
That make no sense at all

I don't know what I was thinking
But I know I'd been drinking

I told my best friend that I love her
She told me she thinks of me as a brother

I don't know what I was thinking
But I know I'd been drinking

I urinated in your hamper
You were one unhappy camper

I don't know what I was thinking
But I know I'd been drinking
Track Name: Common Threads
It's all the same to me
It's all just fine to me

It never ends
God damn it never ends
Standing in the shadow of a city sky line
The history books will say we were a tragedy
But I think it's beautiful
All beautiful

The history books will say we were a tragedy
Is it so much to ask for some piece of mind?
Standing in the shadow of a city skyline
It's all the same to me

It's all okay to me
It's all the same to me

It never ends
God damn it never ends
Standing in the shadow of a city skyline
The history books will say we were a tragedy
But I think it's beautiful
All...

Today we touch the sky
Today we touch the sky
(We were a tragedy)
It's all the same to me
Track Name: Variations on a Theme
Hibernation at a bus station
Dreams of a ghost on the ocean floor
"When you dream is it in color?"
Asks the man with the hands
That a duller than watching paint dry

If you live every day like it's your last
You die a whole lot sooner
Mind is racing, calculating
Variations on a theme
