I'm not a humble guy
I can't sing the blues all night
If you sing them you can make me well

I'm not an honest man
Truth's for sale in 12 oz cans
More you have, worse it hurts tomorrow

I'm not believing
In Sunday morning over-achieving
Shouldn't sell your soul or you mind

I'm not the leader
But I don't care to follow either
Watch me as I go my way
So you don't come tumbling after

You're alright with me
We'll swim together
Through this fast food poverty
I know that you can be the one
To unprogram me

I'm not addicted
Except when I'm afflicted
Ain't it wicked how
The devil is so hot

I'm not pretending
There's a happy ending
So I'm mending all my broken hearts
Into one worth breaking

    General CommentThese guys are awesome, I saw Zach and Nate open for The Violent Femmes a few years back in Boise just before they moved to CA.

    Oh and:
    I'm not an honest man
    Truth's for sale in 12 oz cans

    is my favorite line...
