Track Name: Face Me
Something in the smoke that you breathe
Lets me know the deeper part of you
It's in the way that you smile
And flag down taxis on eighth avenue

Little do you know that I'm watching you
All the while, all the while
Turn around and face me
Face Me

I heard you whisper in the librarian's ear
"If you would come closer, I would walk with you, far or near,
To this place that you have called your home."

You were baffled by me, but I will please you.
Track Name: Ugly Man Blue
I'd tell you all about me
But there ain't that much to say
I know that you might doubt me
But be that as it may

I've followed smilin' faces
Wavin' 'round their flags
'Til I lost too many races
Wound up with an empty bag

Ugly Man Wearin' Blue
Did you go to church today?
Did you don your suit and pray?

I don't know what to think
About you and your concern
I'd rather have a cold drink
With you, I'd just get burned

Alive in all this weariness
Of fifty-cent perfumes
Darling daughter now you know
Chanel can't heal your wounds

Ugly Man Wearin' Blue
Do you ever tie your shoes?
Would you like to buy some booze?

Ugly Man Wearin' Blue
Will you stay here for a while?
Do you ever stop to smile?

Well you're all a dime a dozen
So I guess that I am too
But I sure ain't your cousin
Just an empty man cloaked in blue

God knows I need relations
But queenie you will not do
Just leave me to myself
Now that, I can screw

Ugly man wearin' blue

While you're talking to yourself
I'll be taking all those things
Stacked up upon your shelf
Woolen coats, diamond rings

See I've thought up a scheme
By which both of us can gain
A surgical procedure
I mean transplanted brains

Ugly man wearin' blue
While you're starin' at the ground
I'm gettin' married across town

Ugly man wearin' blue
Track Name: Sincere/Insecure
I'd tell you a story
But it would bore you
I don't know who you are
But I adore you
And I've walked so many miles
But when you start to smile
All my troubles melt away into nothin'

If I offered you my heart
Would you take it?
And if I wanted your love
Would you make it?

And if I show you my room,
Invite you into my gloom,
Would you lie beside me dreamin'
Or run away from me screamin'?

Although I don't know much about you
I'm finding it so hard to doubt you

And in the end it only hurts
And I'll still have my shirt
But I know that I love you
And if you smile, maybe I can too
Track Name: Trivial Matters
Can you tell me why
You're so grey today
You're so bright and sharp and lazy
But not crazy

Careful lad, some knowledge I can do without
All the time I hear you scream and shout
What you feel can't be real
If I can't understand what it's about

You agreed when I decreed
You'd give your all to my ambition
You're no longer giving me what I need

We're in a hurry
No time to worry
Just a mile to go
You'll be back home
No more to roam

Is it buried deep inside you?
How I tried to find you!
Now I wish you'd go back in

I will be informal
It's perfectly normal
You know nothing can be wrong
If it's just hormonal

Breathing air just like a thief
You never shown a sense of grief
Only from your own pathetic thoughts
Do you seek relief

Listen up, look in my eyes
I've a simple proposition
Just for you I've made a disguise
It should help your condition

OH MY GOD IT DOESN'T FIT
YOU ROTTEN PIECE OF SHIT
DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU'RE STILL UGLY
UNDER YOUR CLOTHES?
Track Name: Note To Myself
Will my fears ever leave?
Will I be a success?
Will be just a little bit better than the rest?

Will the money roll in?
Will I make the grade?
Will I get everything back that I've paid?

Who really cares?
Who gives a damn?
As long as I am breathing
I'll make my own plan

Will the grades be good?
Will the savings hold out?
Will I spend my whole life
To win the bout?

Will happiness prevail?
Will love win the war?
Will I end my life in bed with a whore?

Who really cares?
Who gives a shit?
As long as I have my life
I'll make it

Will I live to be sixty?
Will I fight the battle?
Will I deliver love letters
From my horse's saddle?

Will I walk the streets,
Will I speak the words,
That makes me the man
Who lives and learns?

Who really cares?
Who gives a damn?
As long as I am living,
I'll be who I am.
Track Name: Sadder Songs
Sadder songs have since been sung
And minstrel's tears been wrought
The tussle for the nether rung
Is rendered null from thought

Souls worn thin have bent for breath
And talents been unearthed
Sons of man have vanquished death
And triumphed in rebirth

Rain has silenced quiet hearts
And blankets thoughts of cold
Love is lonely tortured art
So Adam, he says
Fold, and unfold

Rain has silenced quiet hearts
And blankets thoughts of cold
Love is lonely tortured art
So Adam, he says
Fold, and unfold
Track Name: Appalachian Interlude
My grandpa runs a country radio station
And my daddy, he does the news
My grandma, she's the secretary
And my uncle does the news too
Track Name: Honey Rays Of Dawn
She loved me oh so dearly
I didn't pay her any mind
Sometimes I think within myself
How could I've been so blind?

And If I could change one part of my life
I'd take her in my arms
Speak softly about nothin'
In the honey rays of dawn

With love no words are needed
Just the look in lovers' eyes
And the simple confession of a touch
Can make a grown man cry

And If I could change one part of my life
I'd take her in my arms
Speak softly about nothin'
In the honey rays of dawn

I've passed it up more times
Than I could care to write
And I'm sick and tired of sayin'
"Well maybe" and "just might"

And If I could change one part of my life
I'd take her in my arms
Speak softly about nothin'
In the honey rays of dawn

Oh, god there's so many hearts to steal
But not a one to care for that can move or think or feel

So give me a reason to keep on
Searchin' for a life
When love brings life happiness
And love ain't nowhere in sight

And If I could change one part of my life
I'd take her in my arms
Speak softly about nothin'
In the honey rays of dawn
