Track Name: Whiskey and Vermouth
I never wanted to end up on the floor that night
Through the walls I heard voices that indicated midnight
I just needed inspiration to write a couple verses

I never thought i would
Need a crutch to see the truth
Never thought that I
Would have to fake so many smiles
Never wanted for
You to stand there pounding on the door
Never thought I'd need
Whiskey and vermouth to fall asleep

And in the morning through my tired eyes
I saw a page with a bunch of useless crooked lines
Was it all for nothing?
Track Name: Headaches
Half my energy is spent
Just trying to make rent
And the other half is fueling my regret
I'm 24 years old, never did anything I was told
And I'm starting to think
That it's catching up to me

But there's something to be said
For this ache that fills my head
Every morning like an old friend
Saying have another
I'm not gonna vilify
The red that fills my eyes
Cause I think that I'm on the trail
Of Some sort of silver lining

Hey old friend, let's have another
Track Name: Window
A long time ago, knocking at our door
Was an absentee landlord
When a bottle through the glass
Had me freezing away through all of December
In a prarie winter
I can remember the snow that accrued
Every night in the front room
And melted into puddles on the floor
Cardboard from the frame to the wall
Revel in the art of it all
And he told me with such derision
That we weren't living right
And he told me that he didnt have the time

Came home from the bar
Tim had bloody hands
Emergency room 6 AM
A bottle through the glass
Eviction at last
How i couldn't wait for that winter to pass
Track Name: Habits
February holds what's left of January's optimism
I'll break out of this prison
Spring I count the days, March then April, May
Plenty of time to come up with something

But August, June, July go up in smoke
September leaves me feeling broken
Old habits have spoken
Fest is in october, year is almost over
And again I'm left with nothing
Tired in November of feeling numb and useless
Can you come sit near
And let me bend your ear
Hopeful in December
Next year will be better
Next year should be better

How long will I keep digging this hole
