(you make a man feel real safe)

i live in a town where the streets are paved with glass
where the thriving upper-class just can't be bothered
i live in a town where the weeklies are just trash
where pretty faces dominate the present and the past
i live in a town where no money means no friends
where the party never ends
can i borrow a fiver?
i live in a town where i made this demo tape
it's called "the wagon wheel falling off our record deal"
the hit's called "make you wait"

i'm no victim, broke is different from poor
i'm still learning what my heart is for
overall it's overwhelming
feels like a punch every time i come home
hits like a fist every time i'm alone
running out of excuses for ever explosion

i live in a town that reminds me what i owe her
i'd like to roll along but volcano won't turn over
i live in a town where i want to be alone
where i'll never build a home, feel stupid for trying
i live in a town where i made this demo tape
it's called "the Wagon wheel falling off our record deal"
the hit's called "make you wait"

i'm no victim, broke is different from poor
i'm still learning what my heart is for
overall it's overwhelming
feels like a punch every time i come home
hits like a fist every time i'm alone
so many songs sung in shrill thinning tones

i'm no victim, broke is different from poor
i'm still learning what my heart is for
overall it's overwhelming
feels like a punch every time i come home
hits like a fist every time i'm alone
running out of excuses for ever explosion

    General Comment"This song is titled after my ex-girlfriend’s Friendster password. I stumbled upon it, but I didn't tell her I knew it until we were on ecstasy in a hotel room.
    First, let me explain that telling someone personal shit that could ruin your relationship is a BAD idea if you’ve taken mood-altering drugs. Of course she had a right to know that I was logging into her Friendster (I’m such a bastard), but telling her on drugs when she was dressed up like a school teacher in pigtails was just plain dumb.
    "Aubergine” is about the ugly truth about Portland and the girl I couldn’t get it right with. I know I have hurt some really special people in my life and I’ve found that the only way to truly apologize is to get my shit together. Some people who have seen me at my worst don’t want me in their lives anymore. They stopped trusting me and I had to decide if I really trust myself.
    The answer was scary. I needed to move to Philadelphia and walk the streets in the snow for a few months before I could begin to understand what my life had become."
