Track Name: Celebration
I found the lock to the safe
But I couldn't get the combination
I tried eighteen codes
But I had the wrong information

It's been a while since I cried
It's been a while since I screamed
It's been a while since I had a big celebration

I'm gonna set myself on fire
On the nearest highway
I'm gonna tie myself to the wing
Of a loaded airplane

They give you a big wet mouth
But there's just no communication
They give you two soft hands
And it ends in a strangulation
Track Name: Shotgun
Way back pack
Broke my jeans in
Got my floodlight first touch
Football season

And the loose change lightning
Bugs kept flashing
I was young one day
Caught mother crying

Riding shotgun with the beast
Ten years deep

John got laid
Jimmy got jealous
High noon in the lunchroom
Tossed his salad

And the girls chewed gum like a pack
Of wild pink tribal
In the monday mirror looking sweet
And suicidal

Riding shotgun with the beast
In the land of milk and cheese
A-B-C

For all that's said
There aint no symbol
All the songs get changed
And singers get crippled

The husbands and the mothers and the doctors
All can see it
Every inch of the newborn child
Is gonna feel it

Riding shotgun with the beast
In the land of milk and cheese
With the breeze between my knees
Five-foot-three
Track Name: Glass Ceiling
What kind of shit are you gonna eat?
What kind of underwear are you wearing?
What kind of dog are you gonna walk?
What kind of dog is gonna walk you?

Are you feeling
What feeling
Gets you down on your knees
Begging please please please to a ceiling?

Glass ceiling
Glass ceiling

What kind of shit gets you off
After the coffee pot has been burning?
Cut down a tree, build up a wall
Invest in the interests of some insects

What mercy
What mercy
Makes you jump in the sky
Reaching for a piece of pie in a hurry?

Glass ceiling
Glass ceiling

In the blink of an eye the truth is a lie
Think I'm sinking to swim, feels like losing to win

Glass ceiling
Glass ceiling
Track Name: The Cure
Worked for a while throwing papers
Mopping floors and digging holes
Feeling like a stranger
By the time that I got home

They gave me the keys to the building
I could take all the computers and run
I could work for the next promotion
Or I could just start selling drugs

And if we cannot find a cure
For pulling our backs out
It will be just like it is now
Making money for someone else

Mama says that it's a privilege
Daddy says it's a right
I just want my paycheck
So I can take you out tonight

And if we cannot find a cure
For pulling our backs out
It will be just like it is now
Making money for someone else
