South of city limits Lies your secret shame... Where you’re really from Despite what you claim There’s no need to hide it Don’t pay it any mind You see us fellow river rats can smell one of our kind All in all, hand in hand We’re community Even though a bunch of us us can’t spell the word “community” All for one, hand in hand Trust me and you’ll see Just meet me at the lot where the Trade Center used to be, cause All roads lead Downriver....Dix and Champaign forever Dix and Champaign for all South of city limits Slaw jaw Shangrai La Cruise the ‘Graph, have some laughs and break a couple laws Rib kabobs, well fed slobs, whose colors never run Grab a tall boy and some chaw and join in on the fun All for one, hand in hand We’re community Taylor Tuckeys aren’t so yucky Just like you and me All in all, hand in hand Trust me and you’ll see Muskrat dinners every night for me and my family....cause All roads lead downriver .....Dix & Champaign forever Dix and Champaign for all

Good as gold...but sometimes that gold is merely iron sulfide There’s always something new x 2 And you curse the day, but only on the days that end with a “y” There’s always something new x 3 To make things go askew.. Don’t let the...don’t let the bad vibes..don’t let the bad vibes accrue You wouldn’t want them to get the best of...the best of you Walking on eggshells here wearing shoes made from banana peels There’s always something new x 2 Life’s got a way of ripping off the scabs before they fully heal There’s always something new x 3 To make things go askew.. Don’t let the...don’t let the bad vibes..don’t let the bad vibes accrue You wouldn’t want them to get the best of...the best of you

I’m strumming chords against humanity Turn on the tube all I see is calamity I’m strumming chords Yeah maybe 3 or 4... Because I never really bothered to learn how to play any more Way overboard, brimming with hostility Terrible people always seem to be surrounding me Faith in mankind’s got me bordering on lunacy I’m old and bored and I can’t take it anymore I’m strumming chords Every string is out of tune It serves me right, there’s really nothing left for me to do I’m strumming chords against humanity You know this isn’t how I thought it would work out for me.....or you I’m strumming chords against humanity Well, it’s the only thing that’s keeping up my sanity

Your smile is slightly stained and crooked But it’s true... And those laugh lines they tell me that there is a lot to you Why don’t you come over? We can sip on some beers Why don’t you come over? It don’t got to get weird x2 It don’t got to get.... That beat up t shirt that you picked up at some show... It probably has some tales to tell from a long long time ago... Why don’t you come over? We can sip on some beers When the dog starts to bark Then I know that you’re here x2 Your smile is slightly stained and crooked But it’s true... And those laugh lines they tell me that there is a lot to you Why don’t you come over? We can sip on some beers Why don’t you come over? Well it just might get weird x 2 Well I hope it gets...

Minor Scuffs 03:09
my ❤️ is a solid VG+ well worn, well played with some minor scuffs, yeah... Well, these Rando’s think they have a clue. But you know they’re nothing like me or you. coin on your stylus so it don’t skip. ...different paths, different drums on this one way trip These days the cloth we’re cut from appears out of vogue. Crate diggers, miscreants scavengers like us drape ourselves in dead stock robes

I was a Webelo in the spring of the 5th grade Well at the time it was the best choice that I ever made Was told there was to be some sort of annual race And you’d get some sort of prize, but only if you placed They gave me a block of wood I’d win the race, I knew I could But I almost lost a thumb to the pinewood derby My grandpa cut beef everyday for Wolverine He had the sharpest set of knives that you’d ever seen He kept them in the garage, far away from us So I snuck in to work on my pinewood car, what could be the fuss? I grabbed a blade and started to whittle Nicked myself , only hurt a little But I almost lost a thumb to the pinewood derby And it bled and bled/ turned the bathroom sink bright red Well, my grandpa jumped right in and he saved the day He got the wound to close with a touch of his old school grandpa ways Took me in to get some stitches Guess I was too big for my britches Cause I almost lost a thumb to the pinewood derby

Oysters 02:22
Well the world is your oyster But you left your epi pen at home As your airway starts to shut And your hands and face swell up Hope and pray to get through the day And move along You and I are defined by our choices and those choices are sometimes in the wrong trust your heart and trust your gut cause the world can beat you up Take your kicks, get back on those doggies And move along Well the world is your oyster But you left your epi pen at home As your airway starts to shut And your hands and face swell up Close your eyes, take one last breath And move along

The only thing I’ve got to show All that I got to my name Is nothing but a mountain of clutter debt and disarray From the ceiling to the floor Hoarders like us gots to hoard Ain’t nothing standing in my way ‘Cept for all this clutter debt and disarray Posters , flyers piled upon Stacks of past due bills Empty bottles, cheap guitars Books and random pills From the ceiling to the floor Hoarders like us gots to hoard Ain’t nothing standing in my way ‘Cept for all this clutter debt and disarray My shelves are bowing, with uselesss junk My pockets empty and I’m probably drunk....

It’s like the whole world got dropped on its head Dropped on its head all at once And now it’s looking like some contest To crown the biggest dunce Common sense sends regrets He’s gonna sit this one out Went out to grab a bag of smokes You know he’s never coming home It’s like the whole world got dropped on its head And everyone is passing blame Finger wagging, wings a flapping I can’t believe this is happening No ounce of shame in this game

No cleaning up my act I’m forever disheveled My temples gray, my seams are frayed But I don’t even mind I’m forever disheveled I’m not getting any younger But nothing seems to satiate this hunger For the good times (yeah) x2 Always wing it, never plan it Peter Pan it… There’s things I can’t take back I’m forever disheveled My choices made, my dues are paid From the buggy to the grave I’m forever disheveled No cleaning up my act I’m forever disheveled A 3 chord artifact I’m forever disheveled
