Track Name: To Float Or To Fall
To float or to fall
Cross your name off the wall

But how is it we let go?
Grow a brain where your heart used to float

You're just a lying cheat
Who stole from me
But not at all
And I'm just a silly beast
Crying in her tea before the ball
Dehydrate my heart
that's a start to stop the bleeding masses
From hiding in my head
I'm baking bread instead of making passes

You're just a lying cheat
Who stole from me
But not at all
And I'm just a silly beast
Crying in her tea before the ball
Dehydrate my heart
that's a start to stop the bleeding masses
From climbing in my bed
I'm baking bread instead of making passes

To float or to fall
To even try at all

I made just the right mistake
Because I knew my heart would break
I made the very best mistake
Oh what's your name?

Don't step out of your skin
Reach out when you're in love
Oh no

Don't step out of your skin
Reach out when you're in love
Again

What happens when you let go?
You fall or float

You're just a lying cheat
Who stole from me
But not at all
And I'm just a silly beast
Crying
Track Name: Single And Ready To Pringle
Though a play could explain
What I want in its name
To bill the lead actress, comes off as profane
More than a bedding, what I want is a wedding
But the road to your heart's a passage sought in vein

Just to hold your hand could make any place grand
Your smile makes the west bank feel like Disney land
And lest it sound cheesy, you make my life brie-zy
You razzle and dazzle me, my little crayon

Beyond infatuation, a d-day invasion, of laughter storms when you're around
But how your troops fire off, charms which I don't tire of, you leave the sorrows gagged and bound

How the rainbow hates you, 'cause you killed of the blue
Roy G. Biv rest in peace, you're no longer true
Though life lasts a minute, it's best with you in it
To know you're the one's simple as two plus two

Pedestrian affairs light up like solar flares
When you're out with this ball of gas
But if I could plan it, I'd upgrade your planet
By granting it the ring it lacks

Like a vampire strayed from his coffin by day,
With love, life's the sunlight that ushers decay
Before words and clashes
Turn our love to ashes
My bat, bat your lashes, and then fly away
Track Name: Sold Mates
No laughter shared
Daggers glared cut
The awkward silence in the air

Joy comes so slow
And no cup of joe could
Make the Mondays pack and go

Oh blue collar despair
An assembly line of cares
She longs to share
Till the apple of his eye
Becomes his pear

She renounces his claims
His love a curable strain
Rose tinted stains
Upon his lenses
His green just envy
So she senses
But how life can change

Morning brings a new day
His hair now less gray
Oh the punch-in card's been
Knocked out today

The blue choke collar removed
A lifestyle improved
Curtesy of cousins
Now thrice removed

Well, nothing can replace
The one gone to grace
How they're now both off to
A better place
She's won the race

His eyes old gleam
It seems long since he's seen her
But you make a man of means
And fine a man who's become meaner

Kidnapped she cries
The lord's left her forsaken
But he looks into her eyes and says
My dear you're just miss taken

Well, nothing can replace
The one gone to grace
How they're now both off to
A better place

A heart of gold
Holds no hold for gold diggers
But in searching for the prize
The ditch she dug herself got bigger

His blood a hue
Of blue just like her laughter
When she has to forge a smile
And fetch the water for her master
Track Name: How The West Was None
Gold struck rambling across the news but his
Old luck won't let him forget his dues

Settlers she's settled for before
Spreading like pox and sores
Stallions turn out to be bores
Had her in times of yore
But never mind

Oh, his sun sets in the East
A vacant creed without a priest
It was beauty and the least
He boomeranged across the West
And failed the Mississippi's test
Drownin' in the shallow end
Of a river that won't bend
Friendly fire gets her in the end

Gold struck rambling across the news but his
Old luck won't let him forget his dues

Settlers she's settled for before
Spreading like pox and sores
Stallions turn out to be bores
Had her in times of yore
But never mind

Oh, a lonely tumbleweed
A plant that couldn't spread its seed
And kicked across the floor
Mouth left gaping like a saloon door
He'll join the cavalry
And chase her heart indefinitely
Well, she's more than just posse
Starting material so it seems
