Track Name: We're Not Even Friends
Move a little bit and maybe I'll consider it
I brought attention to the ones who were close
Couldn't figure it and so I lit a cigarette
In my fingers and it fell to my toes

Betty, oh! If you ever go
I don't know if I'll leave the floor

In the middle and I'm playing second fiddle
Asking questions but you answer to no one
Rainbow Skittles and I finally went and solved your riddles
Country bumpkin but you're really a shogun

Betty, oh! If you ever go
I don't know if I'll leave the floor

When you brought me ashore
Didn't think you'd leave me out there stranded wanting more
Now we're not even friends
In a moment we'll be only mere acquaintances
Track Name: Low Hanging Fruit
On the vine and you look so divine
Don't know how you do it tell me where I sign
Other women I don't pay no mind
A quarter of a century but you're a dime

Rubber elbows and an apple eye
Rainier cherries girl I wouldn't lie
Hanging down from the branch so fine
Only gettin better like that homemade wine


When you're ready we can rocksteady
Filling up the day with you
What you saying, are we gonna stay in?
Take a vow of silence


Harvest season it goes best with lime
Gather up the evidence from every crime
Love's the reason that you did no time
Your closing statement was a pantomime

Standing there in your three piece suit
Sophisticated and intelligent to boot
William tells me you're an okay guy
Marble counters and we're gonna fly


When you're ready we can rocksteady
Filling up the day with you
What you saying, are we gonna stay in?
Take a vow of silence
Track Name: This Isn't My First Rodeo
In the morning when the sun hangs low
Thought you had me in your velvet lasso
At another horse and pony show
But this isn't my first rodeo

Taking all the cowboys by surprise
Never let em lead to my demise
Shrinking all the demons down to size
Sending for some back up might be wise

Could you be forgetting the minimum you're betting
Gonna make em up the ante love
Trying out a blazer and nothing seems to phase her
Darling singing to the stars above

Sunken in the garden, laying low
Tried to round me up and wouldn't let it go
Out to pasture gonna take it slow
Cause you know that this ain't my first rodeo
Track Name: Turned Me On A Dime
When we were barely getting by
We could never see it eye to eye
I was only trying to be your guy
You said you had bigger fish to fry

I was blue with thoughts of you
Gave it time and I got thru
Living out a dream of my design
Don't worry love I'm doing fine

Where is the mountain I should climb?
I'm running out of everything but time
You very nearly had me in my prime
Before you went and turned me on a dime

I was blue with thoughts of you
Gave it time and I got thru
Very nearly had me in my prime
Don't worry love I'm doing fine
Track Name: Troubleshooter
The screen just froze
Window won't close
What is it you suppose?
I already hit re-start

I get no sound
File not found
Something's wrong with my computer
I'm gonna need a troubleshooter

Mysterious force, locate the source
Better back it up of course, cause you never know
Your helping hand, stuck in the sand
Playing in an indie band, you couldn't help yourself

Our time was short
You gave support
It's all in my report
Everything was running fine

You turned around
System was down
Then you showed up on your scooter
It's okay cause we got ourselves a troubleshooter

Mysterious force, locate the source
Better back it up of course, because you never know
Your helping hand, stuck in the sand
Fixing up another friend but you couldn't fix yourself
Track Name: Love Above All Else
Wandering the streets without a care
Shuffling your feet you dye your hair
Looking for the one who'll
Save you from yourself

Better break away before too long
Bring em to the yard a brand new song
Chanting in the garden
Love above all else

Now it's up to you and all your friends
Gather em around the pearly fence
Glory hallelujah
See it for yourself

Sentimental dreaming in the sun
Brought enough to share with everyone
Singing down a mantra
Love above all else
Track Name: You're Only Everybody You Have Ever Known
Taking off on a subway train you leapt out on your own
Then you ran into someone who could've been your clone
But they left you seeing things and feeling all alone
Keeping company reflects on you

Brought down to another party, everyone was there
And the cops were a little tardy, they all came to stare
Camping out underneath the trees and all up in your hair
Had a part of me to yourself and you're feeling kind reticent

And you're sure you didn't invite them
Still you gotta sit around and fight them
Gonna take a million wrongs and right them
Gotta do your best despite them

Learned the art of the imitation, now you're getting grown
Found yourself in a situation, watched it on your phone
But you're only everybody you have ever known
They are all another side of you
