Track Name: Great Escaper
I bought a gun with my green paper
When I was young, to kill my maker
You're so messed up, you're the great escaper
When you've had enough you're a big pretender
I had a lot of salivation
When I was dumb, but now I'm tasteless
You're the great escaper
You're the great escaper
Track Name: La Dolce Vita
I was 17 years of age when I smoked my first cigarette
I didn't feel a thing like Marlon Brando or James Dean
Or what's his name from La Dolce Vita
I felt like an asshole coughing up a lung till I started up another one

My life is filled with these moments that I can't shake
Are people lookin' at me like I'm an imposter?
Can they sense me, like Invasion of the Body Snatchers?
I wanna see what they see but I can't fall asleep I can't fall asleep I can't sleep

I wanna stare into the sun
I wanna be dumb like everyone

Now I'm spending all my money on alcohol and coffee
And sittin' on my ass watchin' reruns of I Love Lucy
And all my friends, they're all functioning alcoholics
I wanna see what they see but I can't fall asleep I can't fall asleep I can't sleep

I wanna stare into the sun
I wanna be dumb like everyone
Track Name: Armchair
I went back to you're old apartment
To see if the past was right where we left it
To my surprise all your things were still there
I saw me and you making love in the armchair

Another day of my life that I'll spend
Just mourning the loss of what still hasn't happened
You'll never guess what I saw in my nightmare
I saw an empty room, yeah all but for the armchair

I went back to your old apartment
to see if the past was right where we left it
You'll never guess what I saw when I got there
I saw me and you waking up in the armchair

I went back I went back I went back
Track Name: In The Beginning
In the beginning God created man
Or some stupid shit like that, yeah
But I'm not sure which one came first
Was it the shark or the fin?

In the garden of eden everybody knows
They have the most delicious fruit or so I've been told
Well I'm not sure if it's kosher
But I hear it's non GMO

Now down in the city the people drive alone
So they turned the carpool lane into a tax deducted toll road
And I'm not sure if that's legal
I guess the lord only knows

Mohamed and Jesus, Job and Abraham
Were mainlining buckets of pure white heroin
In the back booth of the Gold Room
In the year 2010
Track Name: What I Wanted
I fell asleep with my shoes on while he was talking to you
I choked on a whole lotta nothing, but what I wanted was you

My single malt memories come back when you come into view
I sang about wanting nothing, but what I wanted was you

Yeah, what I wanted was you

I fell asleep with my suit on while he was talking to you
I choked on a whole lotta nothing, but what I wanted was you

Yeah, what I wanted was you
