Track Name: The Body Knows but the Brain Gets in the Way
I can try to be so smart
Like a wall of MOCA art
And all the works of Decartes
But nothing fits my empty heart

The body knows but the brain gets in the way

I always thought I’d end up alone
The lights are off when I get home
It feels good to always be right
White lies from the boy who can’t cry

The body knows but the brain gets in the way

Just slow down
And close your eyes
Feel the sand
Realize
We’re quick to cut
It’s quick to mend
Tie a string
To everything within

The body knows but the brain gets in the way
The body knows but the brain gets in the way
Track Name: We Regret to Inform You
Out of the interview
The chances you just blew
Don’t lose your cool
Sweating through your suit
You’re too old to be cute
Nothing to do

I should be rich
Or at least better than this
Not worn out thin from the 1 am Thursday gig
And I want to get out of it
And I want to get out of it

You go and set your aim
But they only know your first name
It’s all the same to you
Lied on your resume
Cause the payments are getting late
You can’t wait to lose

I never guessed
It would be like this
The heads of college kids are all filled with debt
And I want to get out of it
And I want to get out of it

We regret to inform you…
Track Name: Wouldn't Be the First Time
It wouldn't be the first time
That you disappeared
It wouldn't be the first time
that I need you near
You left me standing right here

You don't get why I'm so upset
It's easier to lie
When you're gone
I feel there is something wrong
You got me asking why

It wouldn't be the first time
That you ran away
It wouldn't be the first time
That you need a break
And now I'm starting to break
Track Name: Good Karma
This place sucks
And it’s not getting any better
I’m all mixed up
Like I fell asleep in a blender

I’m too tired to remember
Too scared to be tender
I feel dull and dark today
My head is a million miles…
I need some good karma to get me back on my way

My girlfriend left
And the rent is past due
The note on my car says
“Sorry I hit you, dude”

It’s always raining lemonade
On my parade in Tim-buck-too
I wish I knew what to…
I need some good karma to get me back on my way

All the small things in the world
Can make me really want to die
I need a cosmic handout
To help feel more a…

I saw you drop your wallet
And I tried to flag you down
You didn’t see me
And the cash could really help me out

I’ll use it on a really good sale
That only happens once in May
Every dog has his…
I need some good karma to get me back on my way
Track Name: Impossible
I don't know what to do
When you won't talk to me
crying into the sheets
drinking so heavenly
Taking it to the streets
Talking to friends I meet
No one can recognize
The pain inside these eyes
Try to control my mind
Getting to work on time
I don't very far
Wondering where you are
Picturing other guys
You in another life
Walking inside a church
How could it get any worse

It's just so typical
It feels impossible
And I cannot breathe
Without you next to me

Give me a little sign
Tell me that I'm alright
Something to hold me down
Keep me from breaking down
Cause you are the only one
that makes me feel right
Say you'll be coming back
Say you'll be there tonight

Time
I think of you all the time
Close my eyes
I think of you all the time
Track Name: No Destination
There’s a green exit sign
Means you can leave at any time
It’s hanging on my mind now
For a good good while
I’m at the bar for a fifth
Get in the car – you’re coming with
Our disappearance will become a myth
In this town

We’ve got no, no destination
Not a guide or map
Without a Kerouac
We’ve got to, to change the station
Let’s break on through
Just me and you

Hit the road and call collect
Tell the folks not to get upset
Where we’re headed we don’t know yet
We’re keeping our hearts pure
See the King in Tennessee
Makes some waves in Waikiki
Fall off the Statue of Liberty
Like in Saboteur

We’ve got no, no destination
Going out the back
Burn it with a match
We’ve got to, to change the station
Cross the county line
While we still have time
