Track Name: Shop 'Til You Drop
The world is going to hell in a hand basket
The end is getting closer all the time
Nothing but bad news every night on the TV
I need a way to escape this reality
What can I do?

You got a shop `til you drop
There’s a rainbow of savings in every store
You got to shop `til you drop
There values are too big to ignore

Shop `til you drop, Want buy have
Shop `til you drop, Want buy have
It’s the American way

I love my credit cards like a ball and chain
Cell phone radiation rots away my brain
I got a microwave, computer, and a brand new car
These clothes I wear
Make me feel like a superstar

You got to shop `til you drop
We’ll put you in the driver’s seat
You got to shop `til you drop
Our low, low prices just can’t be beat

Shop `til you drop, Want buy have
Shop `til you drop, Want buy have
It’s the American way

I’m gonna ride off into the sunset in my SUV
To the manufactured land of opportunity
To my paradise, in suburban sprawl
Near the outlet stores and the super mall
The super mall

You got to shop `til you drop
Why wait when you can own it today?
You got to shop `til you drop
These lonely feelings just won’t go away

Shop `til you drop, Want buy have
Shop `til you drop, Want buy have
It’s the American way
Track Name: Killing Time on Broadway
There’s a place in my neighborhood
Where I like to go
People watching, every shape and size
See the masses pose
Down and out in the gutter
Designer label clothes
Tattooed philosophers
I seen them come and seen them go
See it all everyday
Killing time on Broadway

Hey man, hey man
Can you spare a little change?
I’ve been down on my luck
I’ve been to hell and back again
Looking for a buck or two
Get me on my way
Looking for a kind soul
Help me out today
Life’s so hard, they all say
Killing time on Broadway

All the beautiful people
Come on out to play
They frolic in the sunshine
They got nothing to say

Walking past the restaurants
Checking out the view
You can smell the loneliness in the air
You can taste it in the dew
Waiting for the rain
Wash away the pain
Wash away the emptiness
And bring it back again
We lost some souls along the way
Killing time on Broadway
Track Name: Got to Be Some Kind of Way Out of Here
Late at night
I’m on my way home
Every house
A Light in the window
The locks are latched
and the shades are drawn
Behind closed doors
Something is wrong
Behind closed doors
Their lives goes on and on and on

And I know there’s got to be some kind of way out of here
There’s got to be, got to be, got to be, some kind of way out of here
Just not for me

Midnight
I hear the wind blow
I get up I look out the window
I look as far as mind can see
But all that’s out there are the mountains that surround me
The valley that chains me
It just won’t let me be free

And I know there’s got to be some kind of way out of here
There’s got to be, got to be, got to be, some kind of way out of here
Just not for me
Track Name: Eugene
I'm going down to Eugene
I'm going back down to Eugene
This city life has been messing with me
So I'm heading back to Eugene

I'm packing my bags
and splitting the scene
I'm gonna hop on that Interstate Highway
and go back to Eugene

I'm going where the sky is blue
and the ducks are green
Get my old tye-dies and my ripped blue jeans
I'm gonna hang with some hippies and make the scene
I'm going down. Down to Eugene

I'm going down to Eugene
Going back down to Eugene
Going back down, back down back down,
Down to Eugene

Here I come baby
Here I come
Track Name: Sing to the Ages
I'm a face in the crowd
I'm sure you don't know
I was here for a while
But I had to let go

I made some mistakes
and I have my regrets
But it's too late for me now
Time rolls on, soon forgets

So I sing to the ages, I sing to the ages
Cause I want you to know, I want you to know
I was here... For a little while

I had a good woman
She needed more than I gave
But she always stood by me
With devotion and grace

I loved my family
my flaws they endured
and my conscience it haunts me
Still I did the best I could

So I sing to the ages, I sing to the ages
Cause I want you to know, I want you to know
I was here... For a little while

I'm a voice from the past
reaching out to you
and I hope that you hear me
and know that I'm true

Follow your heart
and never forget
To savor the moments
and love that you getf

So I sing to the ages, I sing to the ages
Cause I want you to know, I want you to know
We're all here... For a little while

I was here, for a little while
Track Name: Politics 101
Everybody can be bought
I wish I was wrong, but I'm not
And everybody is for sale
They'll disappoint you without fail

And greed will win out in the end
there's nothing you can do about it, my friend
So make the best of what you got
'cause everybody can be bought

It might just be my perception
Maybe it's all in my mind
For every rule there are exceptions
No matter how hard I search,
I still find....

It took some time to figure out
The evidence leaves little doubt

And to the core it does rot
Everybody can be bought

I might sound cynical but I'm not
Everybody Can be bought

Everybody can be bought
I wish I was wrong, but I'm not...
Track Name: I Can Take You There
I know you had it rough
I know you had it hard
You deserve so much better woman
You deserve so much more

I can take you there
Where you want to go
We’ll close the blinds on the outside world
I can take you there

Sometimes you need a shoulder to lean on
Sometimes you need some slow hand

I know you’re a sensitive woman
You need someone who understands
I can take you there
Make you feel so good
I’ll be your knight in egg shell armor
I can take you there.

I know what you want
I know just what you need
You don’t have to feel so lonely
You can come with me

I can take you there
Where you want to be
You don't have to say you love me
I can take you there
