Track Name: Plastic Gleam
Oh, my eyes can see atrocities
As they rain down on me
The image of death with no regrets
Yeah, watching the sun set.
And wind smacks your face
As you embrace this goddamn rat race
And let me tell you honey, it's not the money
That makes the day sunny.

You gotta be above it all
You're standing now as they fall
You gotta be above it all
You're laughing now as they fall

Oh, my ears can hear the gunshots ring
National tragedy
Another man has lost his mind
Yeah, putting in overtime
And yeah, big cheese has got the squeeze
On you and me, so hard to breathe
The American Dream is dead now, it seems
If you can see past the plastic gleam.

You gotta be above it all
You're standing now as they fall
You gotta be above it all
You're laughing now as they fall

You gotta be above it all
You're standing now as they fall
You gotta be above it all
You're laughing now as they fall
Track Name: She Wanted to Leave
Three men's all they were
Three men all at sea
Three men came aboard my ship
And took my true love from me
I couldn't believe she wanted to leave
She wanted to leave

And I've loved you so long
Since you were a child
I cared for your every need
And I tried to make you smile
And all the while you wanted to leave
You wanted to leave

So go gather the guns
We'll blast them at sea
She begged for me not to shoot.
"For my true love is here with me.
I've never loved thee, and now I must leave.
And now I must leave."

So go and fetch a bottle of rum, dear friends
And fill my glass to the rim
For I'm not the man I used to be
Now I'm one of them.
