Track Name: My Life's Story
When I was 15 years old
I met a girl that had a stranglehold
And I was a kid with no clue
When she went crazy I didn't know what to do
So I'd write and I'd write till everything became right
The day we broke up was wonderful

And I grew up and moved on
I don't know if I've epicly failed.
But you can always tell if I have

When I was 17
I went back to the town I grew up in
I saw the people from my dad's old church
I'd never felt more like a fish out of water
The one thing that's remained the same
I'm just as awkward now as I was then

And I grew up and moved on
I don't know if I've epicly failed.
But you can always tell me if I have
Track Name: We Be Vettin
I went down to Oak Park
And pulled out my gat.
I started a gang war.
In the crossfire was a cat.

I took off my do-rag
And carried him home.
I took out his bullet.
He healed on his own.

'Cuz that's how we roll
In my hood.
That's how we roll
In my hood.
That's how we roll.

I took off my colors
And I sold my car.
I found my life's calling
In the animal ER.

Now that's where I roll
It's my new hood.
That's where I roll
It's my new hood.
That's where I roll.
Track Name: My Other Half
I remember when I met you.
I thought to myself
This is someone,
Someone I could marry.
But I put the thought off
For three long years

I've never been in love
With someone like I'm in love with you.
You truly are my other half.

You're my favorite roommate,
And you're my best friend.
I'll stick with you
Until the very end.

I've never been in love
With someone like I'm in love with you.
You truly are my other half.

And when I walk through those pearly gates
I'll look for you, I'll look for you
And when I walk through those pearly gates
I'll look for you, I'll look for...

I know where my soul stands.
Right next to yours.
And I'll take your hand
And we'll see what life has in store.
Track Name: Shrimp or Potato
I never questioned the hair on your head,
Even when your face turned red.
I never turned around and said
Hey, what's going on!
But here we are again.
Picked fast food in the end
And then I broke down and screamed
Hey, what's going on!

So I went to the local Dairy Queen
Where everything is what seems.
Is that Shrimp or is it a Potato?
Went to the local Dairy Queen
Where nothing is what it seems.
Is that a shrimp or is it a potato?

I went into a seizure
While you sat there in leisure.
You never called the cops
But you stopped me with a mop.
Got water on the floor
And everyone became poor.
They sued us out of our pants.
No one stood a chance.

Went to the local Dairy Queen
Where everything is what it seems
Is that a shrimp, or is it a potato
Went to the local Dairy Queen
Where nothing is what it seems.
Is that a shrimp, or is it a potato?

No one gets their sweet desire.
No one gets their sweet desire.
No one gets their sweet desire.
No one gets their sweet desire.
Track Name: Something Big and Dramatic in My Head
Please forgive me if I make a scene.
I'm not too good with these things.
I will make a social faux pau.
Whatever that might mean.

Law enforcement, they won't change a thing.
Lets see how they do with me against me.

Where do my beliefs lie?
Only in my hands, never what I say.
God I know you forgave me but watch as I squander it all away.

The fall of me is now.
The fall of me has come.

I'm ashamed, so I'll run and hide.
These are some good lookin' lies.
I take for granted that truth is fact.
Fact is I'm controlled by pride.

Health insurance, they won't change a thing.
Look at what they did to my wife and me.

Where do my beliefs lie?
Only in my hands, never what I say.
God I know you forgave me but watch as I squander it all away.

The fall of me is now.
The fall of me has come.

You forgave me even though I'm a fool
And it's a life style thing.
Track Name: Where Did You Sleep Last Night
My girl, my girl don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night.
In the pines, in the pines where the sun don't ever shine
And I shivered the whole night through.
My girl, my girl where will you go?
I'm going where the cold wind blows.
In the pines, in the pines where the sun don't ever shine
And I'll shiver the whole night through.

Her husband was a hard working man
And he worked about a mile from here.
His head was found in a driving wheel
And his body never was found.

My girl, my girl don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night.
In the pines, in the pines where the sun don't ever shine
And I shivered the whole night through.
My girl, my girl where will you go?
I'm going where the cold wind blows.
In the pines, in the pines where the sun don't ever shine
And I'll shiver the whole night through.

My girl, my girl don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night.
In the pines, in the pines where the sun don't ever shine
And I shivered the whole night through.
My girl, my girl where will you go?
I'm going where the cold wind blows.
In the pines, in the pines where the sun don't ever shine
And I'll shiver the whole night through.
Girl you made me weep, and you made me moan.
Girl you made me leave my home.
