1. Prozac

Prozac and coffee black
It’s breakfast time again
You and me, recovery
Waiting for it to kick in
We fell in love, got all screwed up
And held on for dear life
Oh lord, we pray we medicate
Until we’re stabilised

We wore the crown
We painted the town
And climbed up on that hill
Got crucified and came back to life
With caffeine and a pill

Oh, Prozac and coffee black
That’s it for me and you
New drugs of choice
We go and void
All the highs that we once knew

We wore the crown
We painted the town
And climbed up on that hill
Got crucified and came back to life
With caffeine and a pill

Prozac and coffee black
It’s breakfast time again
You and me, recovery
When will this shit kick in?

2. Mexico

Yeah I don’t know about you
But I’m feeling sunshine
Cheering with the skylines
Sipping on something chilly
Watching seƱoritas dancing on the beaches
I’m sitting back jammin’ on Willy

I don’t know about you but I gotta get away from this hustle and bustle
Lay back and soak it up
With a nice cold bottle of Bud

I’m driving my ass to Mexico
To get a little crazy, find a pretty baby and let go
Tequila’s got me hazy, dancing with the ladies
I don’t know when I’m coming home
But I’m driving my ass to Mexico

I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of thirsty
Reckon I’ve been working just a little too much lately
Feeling kinda sorta like heading south of border
Clockin’ back in, try and make me

I don’t know about you but I gotta get away from this hustle and bustle
Lay back and soak it up
With a nice cold bottle of Bud

And I’m driving my ass to Mexico
To get a little crazy, find a pretty baby and let go
Tequila’s got me hazy, dancing with the ladies
I don’t know when I’m coming home
But I’m driving my ass to Mexico

Where the skies are blue
Yeah the water’s just right, just me and you
Wait ’til the stars come out
Go skinny dipping, there ain’t no one else around
I’ll be honest, I’m tipsy
I just cracked another bottle, honey come on with me
I ain’t never ever leaving baby
This is paradise, go ahead and leave me here

And I’m driving my ass to Mexico
To get a little crazy, find a pretty baby and let go
Tequila’s got me hazy, dancing with the ladies
I don’t know when I’m coming home
But I’m driving to Mexico

3. I Feel Like Shit

Well I fell asleep in my jeans again
Sun drilling a hole in my aching head
Can’t find the keys to my damn car
I’m scared to check my credit card
But I made it to my house so it could be worse

I cross my heart, I’ll never drink again
Just leave me here to die and blame it on my friends
Time after time I never seem to learn
After fifteen shots of Jameson, the morning always hurts
I feel like shit

I was only going out for one
Then you showed up and it all went wrong
And we got to talk, and they got to pour
And we shut her down at three in the morning
Save the stories, I don’t wanna know

I cross my heart, I’ll never drink again
Just leave me here to die and blame it on my friends
Time after time I keep on coming back
There’s a train inside my cranium and it’s running off the tracks
I feel like shit

Oh no
I see your name as my phone starts to ring
Oh whoa
It’s happy hour at Margaritaville, I know I said I wouldn’t but just for one I will

I cross my heart, ain’t staying out for long
Go on, make mine a double, feels like I’m living in a song
My oh my, tequila and a lime
I swear I’ve read this book before a few too many times
I’m feeling pretty good right now but I know come morning time
I feel like shit
Like shit

4. Anyone But Me

Ever been too blue for the bottle
Too lost to go home
All by yourself in a crowded room
Too alone to be alone

As much as I wanna hold you
I know I won’t hold on

I love you too much
To let you love me
And I know myself too well
To lead you on
So go, love anyone
Please love anyone but me

Has your heart ever been broken
Ever cried yourself to sleep
Ever wish you never met someone
I can’t take that being me

That’s all I ever leave
So baby I’m gonna leave

‘Cause I love you too much
To let you love me
And I know myself too well
To lead you on
So go, love anyone
Please, love anyone but me

I could lie to you
But I’m not going to

‘Cause I love you too much
To let you love me
And I know myself too well
To lead you on
So go, love anyone
Please, love anyone

I love you too much
To let you love me
And I know myself too well
To lead you on
So go, love anyone
Please, love anyone
Go, love anyone
Please, love anyone but me
Oh, but me

5. High

I’d better pour me a drink before I break down
Thought I’d found the bottom but I’ve not yet felt the ground
The good days seem so far away from where I’m standing
I’m tryna push forward but it hurts to keep on keeping on

I’ve been so high, been on top of the world
God tell me why was it taken away right out from under me
If home is where the heart is, what happens when the heart breaks?
I just want this to all be over

There’s a pit in my chest, a hole I can’t fill
They tell me times gonna get better but I’m not sure that they will
I had it all once, might have took it for granted
And honest there ain’t no more tears to cry

I’ve been so high, been on top of the world
God tell me why was it taken away right out from under me
If home is where the heart is, what happens when the heart breaks?
I just want this to all be over

I’ve been so high, been on top of the world
God tell me why was it taken away right out from under me
If home is where the heart is, what happens when the heart breaks?
I just want this to all be over

6. I Got Bones

Like a moth to a flame, that neon light must’ve been calling our names
‘Cause here we are drinking down doubles
Drowning out the same kinda troubles that brought us here in the first place

We can take another hit, bring on the sticks, take me to heaven with one hell of kiss
Let them throw their stones, ain’t gonna slow our roll baby don’t ya know
Don’t give a damn about no words, even less about what you mighta heard
‘Cause baby I got bones when you’re ready to jump them

I seen your face around the town
Looking like a queen, sipping on crown
Ice blue eyes burning like a fire
I didn’t think twice ’bout leaning up beside you
It’s crystal clear, my intentions
Let’s disappear, I got oh so much to you

We can take another hit, bring on the sticks, take me to heaven with one hell of kiss
Let them throw their stones, ain’t gonna slow our roll baby don’t ya know
Don’t give a damn about no words, even less about what you mighta heard
‘Cause baby I got bones when you’re ready to jump them

I said hey there pretty lady, won’t you come out and play?
I’ve been jonesing for your love since walking into the place
Been shaking all night hoping that you just might fall outta my head and into my bed

We can take another hit, bring on the sticks, take me to heaven with one hell of kiss
Let them throw their stones, ain’t gonna slow our roll baby don’t ya know
Don’t give a damn about no words, even less about what you mighta heard
‘Cause baby I got bones when you’re ready to jump them

7. Quite A While

I thought I finally hit the bottom
And fell off another ledge
If falling feels like flying
Well I, I ain’t felt that yet
Tell the truth I don’t feel much of nothing
Wasted, waiting on something

I think it’s time I talk to Jesus
Tell him exactly how I feel
But the devil in the bottle’s telling me I never will
Get this voice out of my head, this rope off of my neck
I hope heaven knows I’m running low on faith
And I hate to say I haven’t prayed in quite a while

I’ve been starting to remember things I never thought I would
Forget the way it felt when life was going good
Been around so long it’s hard to know what’s right
Hurts my eyes to finally sleep at night

I think it’s time I talk to Jesus
Tell him exactly how I feel
But the devil in the bottle’s telling me I never will
Get this voice out of my head, this rope off of my neck
I hope heaven knows I’m running low on faith
And I hate to say I haven’t prayed
So tonight when my knees hit the ground
Don’t know what I’ll say but I’m pouring it out

I think it’s time I talk to Jesus
Tell him exactly how I feel
But the devil in the bottle’s telling me I never will
Get this voice out of my head, this rope off of my neck
I hope heaven knows I’m running low on faith
And I hate to say I haven’t prayed
Oh, I hate to say I haven’t prayed in quite a while

8. Don't Overdrink It

I can hear that buzz coming a mile away
I’ve got a one way ticket, it’s been a long damn day
Coming over the bar and picking up steam
Better set it down before it makes a wreck out of me
If there too long I’m gonna finish off the whole damn thing

Don’t overdrink it, you know that’s what I’m thinking
When you try to get it all in one night
That shit never works out right
Don’t overdrink it, that ship’s gonna come in sinking
It’ll keep your hope afloat
If you have just enough to let it go
But don’t overdrink it

I know that monkey’s got a hold on your back
It’s the middle of the month and that paycheck ain’t gonna last
For a lot of us when we twist that top and pour one up man, it’s hard to stop
I know whiskey ain’t the answer but it’s damn sure worth a shot

Don’t overdrink it, you know that’s what I’m thinking
When you try to get it all in one night
That shit never works out right
Don’t overdrink it, that ship’s gonna come in sinking
It’ll keep your hope afloat
If you have just enough to let it go
But don’t overdrink it

No tequila ain’t ever paid the rent
And the bourbon knows where my money went
The beer won’t steer when I can’t drive
And this car of mine won’t run on shine
I’ve thought about this too long
Now the whole damn bottle’s gone

I overdrank it, don’t know what I was thinking
I tried to get it all in one night but I’m sure it’s gonna be alright
I overdrank it, got lost in the glasses clanking
All I know is my hope’s afloat and I’ve had way more than I know, I know, I know
I overdrank it

9. I'll Hold On

Never thought you’d ever leave me
But I was wrong, I was wrong
Maybe if I’d seen it sooner
When I was strong, when I was strong
I could’ve lifted you up, could’ve shown you the light
That I was too far gone in my own life

I’ll hold on to your memory
I’ll hold on to the love you leave behind
I’ll hold on to your beauty and grace
I’ll fight through the pain and hold on

Never asked anything of me
But for love, but for love
And if not for your mother
You’d be here, here with me
But the years, they go by
A picture lost in time
And I know somehow I got to keep moving

I’ll hold on to your memory
I’ll hold on to the love you leave behind
I’ll hold on to your beauty and grace
I’ll fight through the pain and hold on

‘Cause for you I stay strong
For you I stand tall
For you I’ll hold on
For you I’ll hold on

I’ll hold on to your memory
I’ll hold on, I’ll hold on

I’ll hold on to your memory
I’ll hold on to the love you leave behind
I’ll hold on to your beauty and grace
I’ll fight through the pain
Through the wind and the rain
Through the anger and shame I’ll hold on
Yeah, yeah yeah

Hold on

10. Midnight Woman

Headlights off a ‘Bama back road
Shine through my window when the night is black
Footsteps at my front door
I pour one more shot of Jack

You know it’s late
But you know I’ve been waiting on you

Midnight woman, give me midnight loving
But you’ll be gone when the sun comes up
Here you come down pulling me under
Feeling that hunger that just won’t stop
Midnight woman

Take me to that place you take me
Even though I’m thinking maybe it ain’t right
Give me what only you can give me
Even though you won’t be with me in the morning light

You know I’m hooked on you
It’s such a sweet abuse

Midnight woman, give me midnight loving
But you’ll be gone when the sun comes up
Here you come down pulling me under
Feeling that hunger that just won’t stop

I know you know it’s hard to live in the shadow of love
Is there someone waiting for you?
But I can’t let it go, oh no midnight woman
What lies will you be telling when you wake up next to me?

Midnight woman, give me midnight loving
But you’ll be gone when the sun comes up
Here you come down pulling me under
Feeling that hunger that just won’t stop, stop

Midnight woman, give me midnight loving
But you’ll be gone when the sun comes up
Here you come down pulling me under
Feeling that hunger that just won’t stop, stop
Midnight woman
Woah, midnight woman

11. Same Old Ending

I’ve been waiting for something to come along
And make me feel like I was home
Walking through the door and the screaming
Should’ve been careful for what I wished for
It’s just like I remember it, with a little more resentment
The same old fight with the same old ending

Sleeping on the couch on my own
Playing ’round with my guitar and a bottle of rum
Waiting for morning to come
So I can leave for work and stop coming undone
It’s just like I remember it, with a little more resentment
Same old fight with the same old ending

Call me a glutton for punishment
I suppose it ain’t far from the truth
I know there’s only one person to blame
‘Cause I keep coming back to you
It’s just like I remember it, with a little more resentment
The same old fight with the same old ending

Sleeping on the couch on my own
Playing ’round with my guitar and a bottle of rum
Waiting for morning to come
So I can leave for work and stop coming undone
It’s just like I remember it, with a little more resentment
Same old fight with the same old ending

Sleeping on the couch on my own
Playing ’round with my guitar and a bottle of rum
Waiting for morning to come
So I can leave for work and stop coming undone
It’s just like I remember it, with a little more resentment
The same old fight with the same old ending

Sleeping on the couch on my own
Playing ’round with my guitar and a bottle of rum

12. The Man

It was a winter’s night, cold had a hell of a bite when the collector came to town
An unfortunate soul for six feet below sent to send the sinners down
So he’s not all bad but hell he ain’t no good, when you see him it’s too late to pray
Kid he don’t show his face unless it’s time to pay and well I guess today’s your day

”Put it all on black” he said with the devil in his eye
A pinstripe suit, and a .45, and a blood red bottle of wine
Long before you he’s shot down a few but none he knew by name
Just a bottle of vino, in an old casino, and a mask to hide his pain

You’ll never see him coming, no one ever sees him leave
My friend your time has come, you’d best believe, he’ll shoot you down
He’ll shoot you down

He said ”You know who you are and you know why I’ve come
You’ve done wrong one too many times
I knew it was you by the devil in your eye ’cause they’re burning just like mine
I’ll give you one chance to walk out the door, let this dealer here decide
So put your soul down on this next round ’cause I’m collecting souls tonight”

He came to shoot you down
He came to shoot you down
He came to shoot you down
He came to shoot you down

And he laid it down, he put his soul on the line
Yeah he laid it down one last time
To keep on living the way he’s been living
To keep on sinning the way he’s been sinning

When that ball fell red a shot rang out and it deadened every sound
All he left was a smoking gun on the table and a body on the ground
So if you know you’re trouble, know there’s eyes on you and you’re running out of time
When you’re sitting at the table against a pinstripe suit and a blood red bottle of wine

You’ll never see him coming, no one ever sees him leave
My friend, don’t try to run, you’d best believe, he’ll shoot you down
He’ll shoot you down
He’ll shoot you down
He’ll shoot you down
He’ll shoot you down

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 feet in the ground
He’ll shoot you down
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 shots in a round
He’ll shoot you down
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 shots and you’re down
He’ll shoot you down
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 feet in the ground
He’ll shoot you down
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 feet in the ground
He’ll shoot you down
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 shots in a round
He’ll shoot you down
