Pedro Pan 02:34
Peter Pan was a troubled soul never knew the joy of growing old Wendy was shaking but had too many strings the itch between them felt just like a sneeze I never had the luxury of fallin back on my family dont be afraid to ask for a ride make sure the pressure's never applied. ch. few things are built to last you wont get off so fast your pain wont decay and did I hear you say here’s to the charitable make sure your cup is full misplaced apostrophe, you made a fool of me you never failed to wish me the best the whole time i was under arrest your Bowery boys bore me to death won’t let you keep me now I need me some rest rpt. ch.

RPT. CH. BR: i don’t suppose y’know where I could get some? I don’t suppose you care. 2x SOLO- RPT. CH 2X

takin' the time to be let down again think of a time before and we're more than friends shakin' it off for now, knowin' that you're not around and I'm takin' the time to be let down again takin' the pains to relive some of those scenes washin' the stains that resist all the efforts to leave plunkin' a dime on a wish, eatin' off a dirty dish takin' the time to be let down again for two years it felt like a dream, a wonderful play you wrote every scene and after it all went away, you went to your fade I went to my screen, I went to my screen Next time you think of me, won't you save it for your coterie cuz I'm takin' the time to be let down again taking the time to feel numb and nothing again brazen and dumb wasting no words ever again... Next time you think of me, won't you save it for your coterie cuz I'm takin' the time to be let down again takin the time to be let down again

Fish Hooks 03:27
Everyday id like to send you Items that im confident would mend you Insulate you from the gazes Hurried reels of the three track traces Sometimes I think I need a friend to kick me in the shins Someone whos all aboard Are you holding out on me As you walk into that tree Are you all aboard? If you came back we’d get rid of the fishooks, absolutely I can’t hold back with some of my pipe dreams, it’s a long shot..headed downstream arguments at faded windows Cast aside your dirty bindle Im in the center of a fistfight Its calm in here like an autumn midnight Are you holding out for me As you walk into that tree Are you all aboard? Sometimes I think I need a friend to kick me in the shins Someone whos all aboard

give me a table against the wall no one’s got my six I need a visual, I don’t think I can take this route again traffic makes me want to jump out of my skin I could get it done if my guys were here I could get along if my guys were here I wish that all my guys were here. I can’t wear a seatbelt, need to get out fast The line is too long at the Stop N’ Gas. Something aint right, something will explode everytime I see some garbage in the road I could get it done if my guys were here I could get along if my guys were here I wish all my guys were here. my old lady didn’t understand the way I had to do things in Afghanistan I didn’t know she had other plans she patiently waited for another man.
