Track Name: Save Me Jerry
Sail, sail me away,
Give me a bottle and sail me away,
Let's take these memories and wash them away,
With a bottle or two we can all sail away.
Track Name: Whiskey & Blood
Woke up in the morning I was feeling pretty lousy,
Empty cans and broken bottles lying all around me,
Tried to piece together the events that had taken place,
I was struggling. Where the fuck was this place?

Lit a cigarette and then cracked another beer,
Took the deepest breathe, it’s the crackle in my lungs I fear,
Daggers in my eyes and my throat is made from glass,
These broken bones and broken hearts are meaningless.

These scars tell a thousand stories,
Black and blue for fun and glory,
These scars tell a thousand stories,
Black and blue no guts no glory.

Pegs said “lets get out of here,
We can’t let this night just slip away”
We could hear the sound of drums beating in the night,
The city sky electric blue from moonlight.

These scars tell a thousand stories,
Black and blue for fun and glory,
These scars tell a thousand stories,
Black and blue no guts no glory.

I’ve got whiskey in my veins,
And I’ve got blood in my lungs,
I’ve got whiskey in my veins,
And I’ve got blood in my lungs,
Track Name: Les McQueen Was Right
Seems like yesterday,
Everything was simple (o so simple),
Now we’re worlds away,
Running ‘round in circles.

We were once reckless, bloody ruthless,
Used to be careless and free,
Time was always on our side then.

Days like these were great,
Everything was simple (o so simple),
It now seems far from here,
Wayward, mislaid, absent.

We were once reckless, bloody ruthless,
We used to be careless and free,
Time was always on our side then,
How things change.

We move on,
We grow old,
We look back,
We hold on,
Then realise it’s all the same.
Track Name: Something To Lose
It’s high time,
We got ourselves outta this dead town,
And these same sounds,
I can feel the mould growing in my lungs and,
It tightens every time that I think about staying.

It was easier back then,
When we didn’t have something to lose.

Right now
We need to move outta this old town
It’s bringing us down
I can feel the mozies biting at my legs
Don’t you know that they breed in stagnant water.

It was easier back then,
When we didn’t have something to lose.

You’re scared,
I’m nervous,
Just take a deep breath,
It’s worth it.
You’re tense,
I’m shaking,
Breathe in, breathe out,
We’re ok.
Track Name: Hey Happy!
Well raise your glass up high,
And make a toast to forgotten friends,
Remember them with a wry old smile.

I’m so happy to see you happy,
I’m so happy to see you happy again.

Well it seem like donkey’s years,
Since we last sat and just talked,
We knew you’d go far with a smile like that.

I’m so happy to see you happy,
I’m so happy to see you happy again.

I’ve missed that smile,
I’ve missed that laugh,
I’ve missed the way you used to dance all on your own.
Track Name: It's The Waiting I Can't Stand
Are we waiting for something to go wrong?
Are staying in the same place far too long again, this stagnates everything again, once again.
We were lovers now not so long ago,
Now were caught up in the midst of everything again, this stifles all our thoughts again, once again.

Are we just waiting?
Are we just waiting here?
Are we just waiting,
For this to go wrong?

When did talking start to seem so wrong?
And conversations became dull and slow this focuses on all that’s wrong, all along.
Can you tell me when we lost our sense of fun,
Was it when we stopped playing young and dumb?
I think that’s when we lost the fun, everyone.

Are we just waiting?
Are we just waiting here?
Are we just waiting,
For this to go wrong?

Can you tell me when we lost our sense of fun?
Was it when we stopped playing young and dumb?
I think that’s when we lost the fun, everyone.
Track Name: Stronger From Mistakes (reprise)
I’ve made mistakes but I hope they’ve made me stronger,
They’re past regrets I don’t’ dwell on any longer,
I closed my eyes to the truth too many times,
I’ve closed my eyes and believed all their lies.

You know I’ve got to go get away,
Got to go find away,
I’m never going to change my mind,
No, no not this time,
All that I can do is try,
All that I can do is try,
All that I can do is try, try, try, try.

This time never mind, never mind this time,
The conversation has run dry,
And all that I can do is try.

I’ll use my inner strength to rise above the rest,
As long as I go on believing in myself,
A positive attitude will see me through the day,
A positive attitude is all I’ve got to say.

You know I’ve got to go get away,
Got to go find away,
I’m never going to change my mind,
No, no not this time,
All that I can do is try,
All that I can do is try,
All that I can do is try, try, try, try.

Past regrets have made me strong,
I admit sometimes that I’m still wrong,
But it takes time for things to change.
Track Name: Medicine & Books
Wait for the medicine,
To kick in before we leave,
This city seems to miss the point,
This city seems to lack belief.

Don’t wait for me,
I’m not coming home tonight.

Sitting in the back again,
Fourteen hours lies ahead,
Baked with a hint of spice,
Who’d of known we’re well read.

Don’t wait for me,
I’m not coming home tonight.
Track Name: Five Thousand Strong
Load in, load out, pass another beer,
We’ve got some tales to tell tonight,
It’ll make things clear,
Will you sing with us tonight?

We don’t this for the money,
We don’t do it for the fame,
They say don’t give you your job, we’ll that’s ok,
If you dance with us tonight.

Well I wouldn’t change a thing,
What else would we be doing?

Every chord we strike rings true,
And the words from our heart,
Isn’t that what you expected kid?
‘Cause our friends come first.
Will you stand with us tonight?

Well I wouldn’t change a thing,
What else would we be doing?
Sitting back a home, drinking all alone,
Well I wouldn’t change a thing.

Just on smile, o just one smile will make tonight.

Even if there’s only 5 people in this room, we’re gonna sing like we’re 5000 strong,
Our tongues’ will spit the words while our hearts keep the beat, and we’ll sing like we’re 5000 strong.
