Track Name: Pure Delight
Cattin' around like I own this place
I'm the fun lovin' drunk with the smile on his face
Wish I could say it was always this way
But I took a few lumps in my earlier days

I was wild
Oooh, I was mean
But I'm pleased to report
Now my conscience is clean

Now there's no more anger in me
There's only pure delight
Ain't a fool in the world who could ruin my night

Used to go out, and it's hard to believe
I didn't catch more shit with the chip on my sleeve
I'd ask for it, lord, I'd beg, I'd plead
I had something to prove, yes, there's something I need

To get off
Off of my chest
But I've had quite enough
Of the pissing contest

Yeah there's no more anger in me
There's only pure delight
Ain't a fool in the world who could ruin my night

Used to be
They'd run for the door when I said "G&T"
But these days it takes more
To drag the beast outta me

Yeah there's no more anger in me
There's only pure delight
Ain't a fool in the world who could ruin my night
Ain't a fool in the world who could ruin my night
Track Name: I Want You to Worship Me
I’ve never been the best at playing hard-to-get
Never had the luxury of being coy
Fakin’ always struck me as a losing bet
And I’ve always been an eager sort of boy

I just want you to worship me
I can’t make it no plainer
Why in the hell else would I be an entertainer?

Ambition ain’t the rarest quality these days
So I doubt that it’ll come as a surprise
That the only reason that I learned to sing and play
Is to see the adoration in their eyes

I just want them to worship me
I can’t make it no plainer
Why in the hell else would I be an entertainer?

Since I was a child
I’ve been dreaming of driving you wild
I just knew there had to be more
To the unlovable loser that I was before
Oh yeah

I just want you to worship me
I can’t make it no plainer
Why in the hell else would I be an entertainer?

I want you on your knees
Adulation, please
I want you
I want you so bad
To call me…Jesus
Track Name: Crow (feat. Shane Tutmarc)
I’ve eaten crow for my woman
Lord, haven’t I
I can’t say no to my woman
Although I try
Is this the price that I have to pay?
You see, she gets off on gettin’ her way
I’ve eaten crow, crow, nightly, Lord

I’ve eaten crow for my woman
Lord, haven’t I
I can’t say no to my woman
Although I try
I’m a disgrace, I can’t ever win
‘Cos her machinations keep doin’ me in
I’ve eaten crow, crow, nightly, Lord

Lord, there’s been times when the sky looks so grey
That I think I can’t take one more day
But still I’ll never say that I’ve been a fool

I’ve eaten crow for my woman
Lord, haven’t I

I’ve eaten crow, crow, nightly, Lord
Track Name: Nearly Marjorie
I burned a warpath through this town
When you left me on the ground
I went searchin’ for the piece of me I’d lost
But like Sherman on his ride
I felt only rage inside
And my only hope was beatin’ out the frost

I suppose I made it through
Honey, what else could I do?
I resolved I would pursue a life of sin
Since then there’s been so many women
Some I’d like to see again
But it was nearly Marjorie who did me in

Try and remember how this ends
Marjorie could never ever be your friend

That’s the mantra I repeat
As I shuffle down the street
I might seem aloof, but really I’m afraid
That I blew my only chance
At preserving true romance
Me and Marjorie, we nearly had it made

Now I’ll take anyone who’ll have me
I’m afraid that’s how it’s been
Since it was nearly Marjorie who did me
Had her singular way with me
Nearly Marjorie who did me in
Track Name: AM
Karen, spirit me away
You know it’s so hard to get up every day
Broken and searching for a friend
No one knows just how or if it’s gonna end

And try as though you might
You think that you never will belong
And it takes a lot on days like these just to keep on breathing
When it feels like all your favorite records are running out of songs
The AM’s always on

The AM (AM)
The AM’s always on

Drifting – there’s nothing left to do
Hold on to that song and let it pull you through

And try as though you might
You think that you never will belong
And it takes a lot on days like these just to keep on breathing
When it feels like all your favorite records are running out of songs
The AM’s always on

The AM (AM)
The AM’s always on

You can’t deny it’s worth a shot
To keep fighting when you’d rather not
You never know what might deliver you
Remember

The AM (AM)
The AM’s always on
Track Name: Get Paid
Every day I feel just like a hamster on a wheel
As I wallow in the bed that I’ve made
You don’t have to tell me that none of this is real
Can’t you see I’m trying to get paid?

Can’t you see I’m trying to get paid, oh Lord
Can’t you see I’m trying to get paid
All this self-flagellation’s about compensation, man
Can’t you see I’m trying to get paid

I’m standin’ at the corner of Status Quo & Greed
And I’m not ashamed to call it a spade
It seems another dollar is the only thing I need
Can’t you see I’m trying to get paid?

Can’t you see I’m trying to get paid, oh Lord
Can’t you see I’m trying to get paid
I’m just one of the many who’ll dance for a penny, man
Can’t you see I’m trying to get paid

They say that adoration becomes just another gig
And that’s the very thought that makes me so afraid
The fans, they try to bug you when you’re packin’ up your rig
Man, can’t you see I’m trying to get paid?

Can’t you see I’m trying to get paid, oh Lord
Can’t you see I’m trying to get paid
When it comes to the lettuce, please, saints, don’t forget us
Man, can’t you see we’re trying to get paid

Now, you may be disgusted, but one thing’s for sure
There’s no one more disgusted than me
I’m at my desk pining for something that’s pure
Man, can’t you see I’m trying to get free?

Can’t you see I’m trying to get free, oh Lord
Can’t you see I’m trying to get free
If I could just manage to gain some advantage, man
Can’t you see that I would break free
Can’t you see I’m dyin’ to get free?
