Track Name: Sue
Life ain't fair and that ain't much
When you're pumped full of chemo waitin' for the fuckin' bus
(yeah)
I can't think of what to say
So just hold my hand and we'll fake it till we make it, yeah

Oh Sue, I got you under my skin
and honey I'll tell you it's the damnedest thing
I don't think I'll be there at the end but I'm always gonna keep you right under my skin

You put a knife on my arm, God put one in your back
but you're the artist here, yeah he's just a fuckin' hack
(yeah)
Do you think he was jealous or maybe just bored, oh Sue I can't make sense of this, it's just the fuckin' worst

Oh Sue, I got you under my skin
and honey I'll tell you it's the damnedest thing
I don't think I'll be there at the end but I'm always gonna keep you right under my skin

I think I've seen how this one ends before
So do you mind if we skip to the good parts?
Track Name: Toss-Up
Wake up
More tape on the reel
I think I heard this song before, I like the words but not the feel

Are you the center of the ripples?
Or are you watching from the shore
These and more cliches for sale, please check out my online store

I couldn't cut it as a cowboy
and I'm too sad to be a cop
Passed out and slept through my big break
Least it ain't lonely at the bottom

Wake up
Got through another day
I lost some hours in the middle, but my boss says it's okay

You know it happens more and more
Sometimes I want those hours back
But if I can't remember, then it must not have been that bad

I couldn't cut it as a cowboy
and I'm too sad to be a cop
Passed out and slept through my big break
Least it ain't lonely at the bottom
Track Name: T.C.C.B. (Takin' Care of Business Boogie)
What's your budget, what's your buy-in , how much can you spend?
How much you gonna bleed just to get to the end?
It ain't enough

Are your channels up to date, infinite scroll
Yeah, preening, posing, posting fine-tuning your role
Oh, no

This ain't the kinda thing that I'm good at
This ain't the kinda thing that I know
This ain't the kinda thing that I'm good at
I'm just trying to put on a show

I know a guy who knows a guy who used to book at Irving
and if we play our cards right he might get us a thing, oh no,
It ain't enough

Call your friends yeah call your mom we gotta fill the room
but every time I get onstage it feels more like a tomb

This ain't the kinda thing that I'm good at
This ain't the kinda thing that I know
This ain't the kinda thing that I'm good at
I'm just trying to put on a show

(exit, pursued by guitars)
Track Name: For Megabus (in C)
Another Friday on the Megabus
Watching all these small towns turn to gold at dusk
Another Sunday on the Megabus
Just five more days 'till two days without my boss

You stop thinking about where so you can focus on why
We were sitting in the church, we were side by side

and if I didn't talk so much, it'd be different
Maybe we could find some common ground
and if I didn't drink so much, it'd be better
I could come and meet you on the higher ground
