Just A Hunch 03:39
I might be the flash-bang at your party I might be the piss in your punch I might be acid rain on your parade Oh… it's just a hunch if I used... to care... how you'd take me those days.. are o..ver now if I used.. to dare. you to break me no, you don't know how..... I might be the pebble in your sneaker I might be the sneeze in your brunch I might be the doorbell ringing in the night Oh… it's just a hunch CHORUS BRIDGE: I never asked for this, You never asked for this, we never asked for this. I never asked for this, You never asked for this, we never asked for this. Is it a gift amiss? I might be the rip in your tuxedo I might be the bad one in your bunch I might be the tremor in your waking eye Oh… It's just a hunch (that’s all) CHORUS > BRIDGE (no vox)

It won't be long (it won't be long) until I'm feeling no pain (it won't be long) It won't be long (it won't be long) until I'm feeling no pain (no, it won't be long) A little help from my friends (just a little help) I'll be happy again Yesterday was hard, I couldn't break a smile Yesterday was so hard, couldn't even fake a smile Tonight my friends are around me and life is worthwhile CHORUS Sometimes it gets so dark, don't know how I'll survive Yeah, it gets so dark, I don't believe I'll survive but the light of my friends keeps my flame alive CHORUS JAM If you're down and out, don't know what you should do If you're down and out, and you don’t have a clue Call a friend or two (or three or four) – you know they’ll see you through And it won't be long (it won't be long) until you're feeling no pain (it won't be long) It won't be long (it won't be long) until you're feeling no pain (no, it won't be long) A little help from your friends (just a little help) You'll be happy again CHORUS

Boondoggle 03:46
They said I had to stay... another day No, I couldn't go, oh They said I had to wait... participate Smile for the dough, oh I've never seen that face before... I should be walking out the door... Boondoggle - out of my mind Boondoggle - waste of my time Boondoggle - how could I know? Call my wife, pause my life - on with the show. Sometimes the price you pay... to live this way Costs more than your deep...sleep This coastal episode... is getting old It makes me feel cheap...you creep! I'll never see that face again... Don't try to call me friend (it's just a...) CHORUS JAM ON RIFF > break it down BRIDGE: (Jake phase shifter, picked) I'll tell you what I'm gonna do... Hijack a plane and leave this zoo... I got a better place to be... You want a slave? Don't even think about me (and your) CHORUS Boondoggle - out of my mind Boondoggle - wasting my time Boondoggle - I should've known Here's my phone, I'm headed home, leave me alone.

Arrow (2014) 03:07
Sometimes you look through me, it's like an arrow through my heart Sometimes you look through me, it's like an arrow through my heart oh, you love me so much, I feel it so deep you let that arrow fly - I'm yours to keep. Sometimes you look through me, it's like an arrow through my soul Sometimes you look through me, it's like an arrow through my soul oh, you know me so well, you see right through you don't deserve me, I don't deserve you Sometimes you look through me, it's like an arrow through my mind Sometimes you look through me, it's like an arrow through my mind you expose my secrets but I must admit though it hurts like hell, I probably need it... Sometimes you look through me, it's like an arrow through my mind, it's like an arrow through my soul, it's like an arrow through my heart I used to think it bad, but I've come to find when I surrender control that's when the good things start.

Fool For You 06:25
I'll be a fool for you - anything to see you smile I'll be a fool for you - anything to see you smile They may stare, I don't care - you make living worthwhile When I lost you - my world came to an end When I lost you - my whole world came to an end Nothing nobody could say - couldn't make `em comprehend Deep in the pit of my heart felt like an anchor sinking down Deep in the pit of my heart felt like an anchor sinking down Pulled below the undertow - knew I was gonna drown JAM on VERSE I cried out loud - it was my final choice I cried out loud - it was my final choice thought all hope was gone, gone – but somehow you heard my voice and you reached out and you rescued me… So I'll be a fool for you - anything to see you smile I'll be a fool for you - anything to see you smile They may stare, I don't care - you make living worthwhile

Baby and I were cruising 'bout a quarter to one when some badge at a checkpoint leveled a gun He said, "You been drinking?", I shook my head no He took a long, long look, said, "You're free to go" I said, "I was free already 'til you trampled my rights – There's no probable cause, didn't break laws..." I sped off in the night. Saw a woman on TV - don't know what she was on She and her little girl tried to drive the White House lawn You'd think they'd give her the white coat and a padded little room but no, she got a bullet in the back and a Jane Doe tomb Hey, I was born here, I didn't have a choice I got the police state blues (but I'm afraid to raise my voice) TOM SOLO I know it takes bravery to patrol these crazy streets I get impatience, but not someone who beats an unarmed civilian ‘cause he didn't toe the line throws him in a cell, extorting a fine There used to be time for questions, now there's no time to lose There’s no "Protect and serve" with the police state blues. JAKE SOLO Forget Ruby Ridge or the Boston Marathon or 9/11 or Waco or something else that's come and gone wrong Fading out like nightmare that comes back next time you sleep "Nothing to see here, move along, don't you think too deep" You may have been born here, and if you're feeling confused About the way things change - it's just the police state blues. Hell yeah, I was born here - it was never mine to choose Without probable cause you don't break laws - you get the police state blues.

Like that coupé in the driveway, like that see-saw in the park some things are only made for two I got some scheming on my mind - it's booked for after dark and the only invitation goes to you And when the music starts to play you'll only be a touch away... He's not welcome, no, she's not welcome, no only you and I allowed you know what they say - a couple can play but three, yeah, three is a crowd. I'm not looking for a trio - this tango's just for two I don't care how many others fantasize it's no glassy menagerie, it's as private as can be we'll close the curtains to their prying eyes and when ol’ Luther starts to play you'll only be a touch away... CHORUS One is the loneliest number, Two’s a party, Three is a crowd.

I'm not a perfect man - never said I was But I try to do right by my friends just because That's why it hurts so bad when they wrongly accuse it's enough to give a nice guy the blues I'm not a perfect man - never gonna be You're not a perfect woman, but you're the one for me But sometimes your words kill me baby, they leave me so confused it's enough to give a nice guy the blues Baby you can rip my world apart with just one glare leave this old heart sinking deep, deep in despair But don't leave me girl in need of repair you can heal my soul with a touch as light as air I'm not a perfect man - never will aspire I'm just here to give my all and try to lift you higher but if you fold your arms and shake your head to refuse it's enough to give a nice guy the blues Brothers, sisters - we can change the world if we just care Show this lonely boy he's not all alone out there Come on raise your hands, raise `em high in the air none of us are perfect (3x), but we all got love to spare (4 beats) I'm not a perfect man - never gonna be You're not perfect either, can we agree? But if we don't do our part the whole world is gonna lose and that's enough to give a nice guy…. the blues.

Don’t you worry……..! No, don’t worry…….! Don't worry `bout your blues - Slip on your dancing shoes Shake it real loose - Don't worry `bout your blues. If tomorrow does arrive At least you survived So whatcha got to lose? Ah, don't worry `bout your blues. So it did't go to plan, but you gotta understand you gotta be the man… do the best you can So she rocked your world - you still can show that girl give it a whirl… and dance, dance, dance - CHORUS Pick up your head - no, you ain't dead. you hear what I said? You're still HERE. You've got tonight, maybe in the morning light everything will be alright, crystal clear BRIDGE: Stop talking to the mirror, Crying in your beer Worrying the night away Quit grinding your gears, Drowning in your fear Hear what I have to say - CHORUS > BRIDGE > SOLO ON VERSE CHORUS (drums & bass only) CHORUS (full band) So whatcha got to lose? Ah, don't worry `bout your blues. So whatcha got to lose? Don't worry `bout your blues.

When I fall down, you pick me right up When I'm thirsty, you share your cup When you need a hand, I'm always there for you ‘cause give and take always takes two. When you want to get things done, When you want to get things done When you want to get things done, When you want to get things done Two are better than one, Two are better than one Two are better than one, Two are better than one Take two strings, twist `em together Harder to break, functions better Take two minds and a common goal Sum of the parts is less than the whole CHORUS JAM on VERSE I gotta know - so tell me true With all this work - can I count on you? I can’t do it alone… You’re gonna see We can get it done… you can count on me CHORUS Two are better than one, Two are better than one…

Illuminated… by an LCD All the white noise… makes it hard to see Waiting for the muse… to sing to me anything… she wants this to be I'm staring midnight right in the eye I wish babe, I wish – wish I could tell you why... but I won't. Invigorated… by a steady stream words and melody… I touch like a dream look in the window – a reflected gleam things aren’t always… what they seem CHORUS Only two more minutes… left to go clock is ticking, but it sounds slow fooled myself again – what do you know? I got this one last line, at least it’s something to show for staring midnight right in the eye I wish babe, I wish – wish I could tell you why... But I won’t.

In Detroit 06:43
You're only gonna lose your cash in Nashville They won't give you the time of day in L.A. Your dreams will only be history in NYC Why don't you just stay here and play? You'd waste even an evening in Cleveland They'd make you look silly in Philly, PA You'll never recoup your costs in Boston Why don't you just stay here and play? In Detroit... you still have a home In Detroit... the river keeps on flowing In Detroit... there's nothing left but hope In Detroit... you best get going...`cause the best get gone You'll never win the battle in Seattle You'll only get burnt in Orlando, FLA There's nothing new to see in Memphis, Tennessee Why don't you just stay here and play? You're just gonna get lost in Austin There's no golden gate waiting at the Frisco Bay you know you got no home in Sweet Chicago Why don't you just stay here and play? CHORUS You're never gonna make the scene in New Orleans Las Vegas will just strip and spit you away There's only misery in St. Louie and KC Why don't you just stay here and play? CHORUS JAM endlessly
