Track Name: House Of Sticks
{Verse 1}
In my heart, I gave up on everything, Been out running around, gone as far as I wanted to go.
And I humbly offer you all of me, to change things that I am and some parts that are out of control.

{PreChorus}
So now this man may rise before you – can you just turn and go?

{Chorus}
Our love like a house of sticks; only holding on by thread, every time that the wind blows.
One more falling away – one more piece you could have saved.

{Verse 2}
I had a dream though it may turn out bad… Because living with me will be harder than falling in love.
Right now you agree ‘cause you don’t understand. That eventually – everyone quits – nothing is good enough.
Track Name: Morphine
{Verse 1}
Well, it doesn’t cure anything…only helps me manage the pain. Not everyone reacts the same, but it’s always worked for me. It doesn’t cure anything.

{Chorus}
You’re like morphine to me. Baby, you are the pain killer I want to take everyday. You’re morphine to me.

{Verse2}
I’m only half of a man, not strong enough to stand up on my own. I’m looking for comfort anywhere I can. How bout if you and I waste tonight alone? How bout if you and I…
Track Name: Benefits Of Lies
{Verse 1}
I knew this moment would come, I'd start getting closer, I'd start feeling numb.
I look in your face and forget what I'm lying about.
It's the story that everyone knows by heart, When I open the door - baby - that's when it starts

{Chorus}
And you say, “Why do you do me this way? Why can't you just come home every night?”
You believe when I say - I cannot live without you. That's one of the benefits of lies.
Do you do me this way? Why can't you just come home every night?
You believe when I say - I cannot live without you. That's one of the benefits.

{Verse 2}
Radio off. Put my head on the wheel. I'm searching my soul, I'm
Looking to deal with the things that I have done and the things that I have failed to do…
Track Name: License To Kill
{Verse 1}
You say you know your rights, but tonight you’re feeling wrong.
Don’t you know it’s hard for me to see when – I gave you tender nights and I gave you tender songs.
All I want is for you to stop taking from me.

{Chorus}
My Love’s not some license to kill, it’s not a weapon to use on me.
And my heart’s not some piece you can steal. You know it’s not something that you will get for free.
Track Name: The Ballad Of Anna Nicole
{Verse 1}
Slice me off a piece of that Anna Nicole. I wanna eat her like a birthday cake.
I don't care if she's skinny or fat ‘cause she's the perfect girl and highly paid.
I wanna be like Anna Nicole on the TV on every station. Call me a doctor… Make me look like

{Chorus}
Anna Nicole, Anna Nicole, Made out of gold, Body and soul.
Anna Nicole, Anna Nicole, A-N-N-A, Anna Nicole.

[Verse 2}
Put her on a pedestal and Spin her around - I wanna look at her from every angle
No one’ got it like Anna Nicole, A perfect face ‘cause she's an angel…
I wanna be like Anna Nicole on the TV on every station. Call me a doctor… Make me look like

{Repeat Chorus}

{Bridge}
Mexia milkshake, Creamy and white....ahhhhh

{Repeat Chorus}
Track Name: Obviously (The Kingy Song)
{Verse 1}
Obviously; She wants you to break it off.
She’s hoping you get a clue.
And you haven’t seen her laugh in a long time.
Well, it’s torture tonight to try to work things out.
And can’t you just do her a favor and slam the door?

{Chorus}
Tonight is just part of a trend that you’re fighting.
Like that King standing in the sea;
He holds out his hand - He commands that the waves must stop. Instantly…
That’s hope and that’s how it goes,
Even when it doesn’t work out right.
(‘Cause) You cannot force anything.
(and) You could stand out here all night.

{Verse 2}
Just only months ago,
That her heart was sure and then trouble came calling.
She does the best that she can to believe again
though it never takes hold. Day by day, doubt grows.
Too big to contain and it makes just a mess and it leaves such a stain-
That it will never come clean.
Track Name: Drowning Man
{Verse 1} He’s a drowning man; he belongs to me. And I know I should help any way that I can.
But I’m afraid that he’s gonna drown me.
Always my Brother’s Keeper, tied by rope; it connects us. I’m his last hope and protection. But if I don't let go…
{Chorus} What good would come from giving away tonight. Then tomorrow just more of the same
Maybe my luck is gonna change - And the water will rise. Oh, Take away my drowning man.
{Verse 2} Please don’t call. Again. I know you are suffering. I know you have got nothing at all. That
Every bite that I taste is money that I’ve wasted.
{Bridge} Why pretend that I am man enough to take care of both of us, and you do nothing?
Why pretend that I am strong enough to save both of us, and you do nothing? [This leads into solo, chorus, etc]
Track Name: More
{Verse 1}
Why don't you take up my offer? It's a measure of who I am. Can I have your attention, it's the only language that I understand. If I take too many chances, I'm desperate for your approval.
If I am over-reacting, I'm in a hurry to be closer to you

{Chorus}
What are you waiting for? Can you give me what I need?
And why can't you give me some more? You don't give up anything.
Track Name: Lucky
{Verse 1}
Don’t say I’m Lucky,
cause I’m completely unaware of what tomorrow brings.
I don’t want to hurry, I don’t need a thing,
I can do everything by myself.
Don’t say it’s better for me if I don’t have to compete.
I’ve never given a damn that my heart will get broken,
I love everyone on TV.

{Chorus}
God looks down on me,
“My son, you’ve been a fool” says He.
Guess I was made that way.
I’m not what I seem
I could be rich and good looking,
And that would be Lucky it seems to me,
if I was made that way.

{Verse 2}
Don’t say I’m Lucky,
unless you’re walking a mile in my shoes.
From now on all of the meds
will keep me further from dead…
is it a miracle you don’t need them, too?
To speak so sweetly,
use your comfort and grace to make me feel special
Like I don’t know what it means,
can you see it by the look on my face.

{Repeat Chorus}

{Bridge}
You see me, wanted to say,
“It ain’t easy, but my courage inspires you”.
You avoid me,
sometimes I wish it was that easy,
yet my courage inspires you.
Track Name: Makin' Love To Celine
{Verse 1}
I’m not the most good-looking but babe you are a feast.
When we are together it’s like “beauty and the beast”.
And “That’s the way it is” – I’m no romantic dude.
“If walls could talk” they’d say it takes
Celine to get you in the mood.

{Verse 2}
“Then you look at me” and say
you’re gonna love me “all the way”.
Just get out Celine Dion, for the stereo to play.
“The greatest reward” awaits me when her
music fills the night.
You say “I am your lady” - I say
“Love doesn’t ask why”.

{Chorus}
Makin’ love to Celine

{Verse 3}
“I drove all night” to see you cuz
“My heart will go on”.
Only if I have a few CD’s
of Celine Dion.
“The power of love” is in me,
but I can’t remember how.
Then “suddenly” I hear Celine and
“It’s all coming back to me now”

{Obvious metaphorical instrumental build up and release}

{Bridge}
I’ll be waiting for you,
here inside my heart,
I’m the one who wants to
love you more.
You will see i can give you,
everything you need.
Let me be the one
who loves you more.

{Verse 4}
I’ve been “touched by and angel”,
so I want “to love you more”
“Time has taught me” just to buy
Celine at the music store.
“If that’s what it takes”
I’d buy all her stuff
“if you asked me to”.
I’ll make love to Celine all night,
if I can just make love to you.
Track Name: Empty
(Verse)
What if my hands were empty, what if my heart was empty?
What if I had nothing to offer?
Would that be enough?
What if I'd given up everything as you asked for a little bit more?

(Chorus)
Today I was sure, I told everyone that you'd always be mine.
We had love for the last day of time.
Tonight I'm only starting to realize you may never come home.
Track Name: Nothing To You
(Verse1)
You say that I have let you down, once again.
Maybe it’s nothing to you. Hmmhmm.
You tell me you were feeling bad,
there’s blame all around, but it could be nothing.

(Chorus)
It’s just not fair when the words that leave you
will take you back, but it’s breaking me.
Do you think that it’s going to get better, from just an apology?
Facing the fact that you need me to stay is
driving you mad, want to throw it away.
No wonder the things you feel everyday could be nothing.

(Verse2)
What is dignity? Something else to lose. Maybe it’s nothing to you.
We cannot sit down now alone in the same. It could be nothing.
Track Name: Benefits Of Lies (Acoustic)
{Verse 1}
I knew this moment would come, I'd start getting closer, I'd start feeling numb.
I look in your face and forget what I'm lying about.
It's the story that everyone knows by heart, When I open the door - baby - that's when it starts

{Chorus}
And you say, “Why do you do me this way? Why can't you just come home every night?”
You believe when I say - I cannot live without you. That's one of the benefits of lies.
Do you do me this way? Why can't you just come home every night?
You believe when I say - I cannot live without you. That's one of the benefits.

{Verse 2}
Radio off. Put my head on the wheel. I'm searching my soul, I'm
Looking to deal with the things that I have done and the things that I have failed to do…
Track Name: Obviously (The Kingy Song) (Acoustic)
{Verse 1}
Obviously; She wants you to break it off.
She’s hoping you get a clue.
And you haven’t seen her laugh in a long time.

Right now you agree ‘cause you don’t understand. That eventually – everyone quits – nothing is good enough.
Track Name: Boys Are All Bad
{Verse 1}
Did you think it’d be a fairy tale
that if we run off together
like a Prince and Ariel;
Take our time, get to know each other better…
Man, I guess you can never tell
So I hate to be the one
when you’re looking at me and you think that I’m different.
I don’t want to ruin the fun.
What was I going to say? Well, I guess it can wait.

{Chorus}
I know your momma probably tried to teach you
that the boys are all bad.
Awww I don’t car about your job.
I don’t care about your car. I don’t care if you speak English.
Don’t want the salad bar, I want red meat, baby,
and that’s what you are to me.
(Cause) The boys are all bad. I am one.

{Verse 2}
Do you believe that we are meant to be
and that Fate has it all decided.
If you open up your heart and just
Trust your dreams, let own love guide us.
Baby, that’s how your mind is wired.
I am gonna be the one, I will make you a promise you want to believe.
That I am gonna bring you the sun.
Are you getting warm? You will if you love me…..

{Chorus}
Track Name: Roller coaster
{Verse 1}
Last year I made a million,
the tax man asked me, "Where did it go, y'know?"
Last year I spent a billion...
Everyone asks me, "what can I show?
I'd tell you if I could, there's no other problem;
Well, really it's me.
Not much that I can offer, I know it sounds crazy.
I probably wrote it all down somewhere.

{Chorus}
[it was] Women, Sushi.
The rest we just threw it away.
Got a tattoo, rode a roller coaster.
Well, we had to pay to kill a man.

{Verse 2}
My baby is not very classy;
Feels good, but [she's] bad for my heart.
I give her Anything that she asks me,
She's on fire. It's started.
I've done things that your momma says they can't show on TV.
If you're headed down a path of destruction, then come looking for me
