Track Name: It's Hard to Be Humble
say you don't care about your health
was that your easy way out
lied you could laugh in the face of death
but you could only lick her ass

it's hard to be humble when you hate yourself
when you won't let up off your cloud
yes when you puff out every breath
do you wish it was your last

are you trying me on
see what fits
are you so proud of me
am I your pet
Track Name: The Fly
I was the last to know
when you spun your web
that I was caught in
aw you were tickled pink

so I served my stint
hung snug to what you said
but it was for show
yes you were a fickle thing

of course I had to go
what was it you that fled
but that was back then
and was I listening

stricken dumb or fallen
always blushing red
what we were taking slow
turned out slipping in
Track Name: BONUS: Nothing
with a wild-eyed look, you looked rough.
I got it so often those days - "did you have a rough night?"
when it felt like that fire in your eyes was the light of my life
and your embrace was my punch in the gut.

I put that thing right in my mouth, I was tough.
when will you learn - "she's a gem who keeps quiet?"
I thought you were my partner in crime.
I thought I was tying one off - I was all tied up.

mind your own business, don't meddle.
I am the worst; I'm above nothing.
step out and step on your pedals.
where are you going? where are you going?
all you could taste was what tasted like metal.
for a minute you had it, but then you had nothing.

when the sun split your lip, you kissed rough.
then you came like a thief in the night.
what is the biggest regret of your life?
when you made up your mind, did you go with your gut?
