Track Name: Times Are Tough
Times are tough nobody seems to know why
Times are tough and we've all got to get by

If it's not good enough for now don't bother don't waste your time
don't go making up some fairy tale about our happy future lives
because everything changes what's yours can never all be mine
and who are we to say what the future holds in these uncertain times

Times are tough...

but we've got these bodies and we know how to use 'em
we've got a few mad desires we might as well pursue 'em right?
and I've got these holes in my pockets I leave a trail where I go
but sometimes I can't help but feel like this is all some kind of cruel joke

Times are tough...

but we've got these voices and we're learning how to use 'em
and I've got this mad desire and I'm gonna see it through this time

Even though times are tough...
Track Name: it's all downhill from here
i don't mind
walking home in the rain
it's a long way to go,
but i could use the time to let my mind wander

and it's all downhill from here...
...after all these years

i used to live
in the distant future
i had glorious plans,
but none of them came to pass

mostly I'm tired
every god damned day
it's hard to give a shit
but i did my best to forget it

it's always the same,
it's old and familiar now
chasing a flame
that's already gone out

and it's all downhill from here...
...after all these years
