Track Name: Western Ave.
An opportunist who sees with his hands
My night vision's no good
I'm dizzy and I ain't been drinkin' friend

With a new coat on I went out riding
In the snow I froze
I need only you to find me

In a corner room where shadows move
I can't remember sleeping
There was too much, too much to do

I passed your stop and passed mine too
Fingers white while doors close
Short goodbyes on the longest street in town

When I waited for a train I thought of the quiet thing you'd say-
find your own way home.

Pretty gifts bestowed upon me
Clutched too tight they shattered
I hate to say I've been no kind of friend

Didn't take your money but how I ran
There ain't no place to go
Your spectre followed me all the way down

When I waited for a train I thought of a quiet thing you'd say-
find your own way home.

Tonight's no different, I'm lost as ever
there's something more that makes me shiver

Me and you (alone) can tell the lie.
(Me and) you alone can tell the lie (to)
Me and you (alone) can tell the lie.
(Me and) you alone can tell the lie to me.

An opportunist who sees with his hands
My night vision's no good
I'm dizzy and I ain't been drinkin' friend.
Track Name: Black Coffee
7:20 in the morning
Little early for the Old Crow
It's a little late for apologies
Then again, what do I know?

I'm so uptight, all night, that's right.
I've been drinkin' bag wine (might as well be strychnine)
I've been drinkin' all night.

Black coffee keeps me on
Easy does it, Demise.
Black coffee, black
Keeps me on track.
Easy does it, Demise, you ain't ready for me.

Well you better get your feet wet
Take care that you don't drown
Heard you got yourself a fancy new job
You're not even one floor off the ground

Early shift at the Quick Cash
(No wonder I alter myself)
I work at an hourly rate
Signin' suckers up for interest rape
