Track Name: I'm Not Drunk, and I'm Telling Everyone
Right now I think I'd give my life about a B-
Which isn't terrible, but there's certainly some room for improvement
These days are sober, things look a little bit better
I remember last night, that's more than I could say before

I have no excuses on why I'm not living my life to the fullest
As if I ever had one before

Sometimes I reflect on my time spent wasted out of my mind
It was fun for a while, but now it's over
And I'm ready to move on with my life
I wouldn't trade it for anything, it's made me who I am today

And tomorrow's looking better, the day after will be better than that
And tomorrow's looking better, the day after will be better than that

I have no excuses on why I'm not living my life to the fullest
As if I ever had one before

I'd like to get my life up somewhere around a B+
I think that is a reachable, sober goal
Track Name: My Bad, Bro
I don't know just where I'm going to tonight
But Battle Creek's too far with just one headlight
I'll stay here and make decisioins that will effect the rest of my life
My life

Tonight's already jaded, and so am I for being just a kid
I'm preparing to apologize for the rest of my life
And I don't think there's anyone to blame but me
And I knew this would happen eventually

It's not too late to say I'm sorry for the things I've done
It's not too late to shout to you "I know I fucked it up"
It's not too late to want to set things right the best that I can
It's never too late to say I never want to lose another friend

And I know I've done most of you wrong
I'm trying to learn and move my life along

Obviously, there must be something you all saw
Too many broken hearts have been entirely my fault
But a heart that always learning, and a will that will not quit

So said late is better than never
Said in this stupid song is better than never said at all
My nights are still as jaded, though I'm no longer just a stupid kid
I'm still apologizing for the rest of my life

Just know that I am sorry this time
Just believe that I am so fucking sorry this time
Track Name: Two Kevin Nunns
4 o' clock, let me in this place
I've got some problems, need my mind erased

Later on I look behind the bar to see 2 Kevin Nunns staring back at me
His shift is done at 8, it's too fucking early to see two of you
Later on I look behind the bar to see 2 Mike Saunders staring back at me
I'm not sure what time he's out of here, or why I came here

Then Mike looks at me from across the bar and says "Hey Dallas, you're hitting the sauce a little bit harder than usual, what's the situation?" I said "I need to drink until I forget that I share a one bedroom apartment with my fucking exgirlfriend and I hate my life right now" And then he looks at me and says "Shit man, that's understandable" And I said "Yeah, well LET ME GET ANOTHER DRAGONCYCLE!"

This is the only way that I know how to cope
It's like I'm fucking 15 abandoned again
With no one here, just any empty house
And a full cabinet staring at me

Later on I look behind the bar to see 2 Kevin Nunns staring back at me
His shift is done at 8, it's too fucking early to see two of you
Later on I look behind the bar to see 2 Mike Saunders staring back at me
I'm not sure what I did next, but I must have wound up somewhere
Track Name: Jason Newsted > Rick Snyder
We're from the same town, so I don't understand how we could see things so differently.
Good people are trying, and they're failing, and it's all because of you
Are you heartless or just stupid?
Your lack of concern, it concerns me
And I don't know how you sleep at night,
Knowing that you haven't done a thing

It's as if you don't care about this place that we're supposed to love

How can you say that things will be alright?
How can you say that things will be just fine?
How can you sit by watching idly?
How can you sit by and not do a thing?

We're from the same town, so I don't understand how we could see things so differently.
Good people are trying, and they're failing, and it's all because of you
You must be heartless and not just stupid
You're lack of concern, it concerns me
And I don't know how you sleep at night,
Knowing that you haven't done a thing

And I don't how someone so goddamn smart can possibly think the best way to benefit the people in our state, our home is by cutting social services to give more tax breaks to already wealthy billionaires. Something about capitalism, blah fucking blah, anarchy.
