Track Name: Ballad Of A Broken Man
BALLAD OF A BROKEN MAN…

LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW
LOOKING FOR HER ON THE STREET
EVEN THOUGH I’LL STILL BE ALONE
WHEN SHE WALKS THROUGH MY DOOR
KNOWING HER FIRE DOESN’T BURN FOR ME ANYMORE
HER WORDS
THEY MAKE ME FEEL BETTER FOR A WHILE
UNTIL HER MOVEMENTS LIE
UNTIL SHE CAN’T MEET MY EYES
IT’S LIKE IT’S ALREADY WRITTEN
WHY CAN’T SHE BURN FOR ME
LIKE SHE DID LAST SUMMER?
WHEN SHE WOULD’VE LAY DOWN AND DIED FOR ME
I KNOW SHE WANTS TO FEEL THE LIE
PROBABLY ALMOST BELIEVES IT
UNTIL SHE GETS ON THE DANCE FLOOR
BUMPING AND GRINDING
WITH ANYONE BUT ME
WHY CAN’T SHE BURN FOR ME
LIKE SHE DID LAST SUMMER?
WHEN SHE WOULD’VE LAY DOWN AND DIED FOR ME
WHEN SHE WOULD’VE CHANGED HER LIFE
FOR ME
Track Name: American Beer
AMERICAN BEER…

YOUR DIRTY WINGS CAN GET ME SO DOWN
WE JUST GET SO HIGH WE CAN’T SEE THE GROUND
THE BROKEN ANGEL IN YOU
THE SAVIOUR IN ME
SO I’LL MEET YOU AT THE BOTTOM
OF A BOTTLE OF AMERICAN BEER
WE’LL DRINK IT DOWN AND I’LL TURN YOU ON
AND WE’LL LAUGH AT DISTANT DAYS
AND I’LL HOLD ON TO YOU AND YOU’LL HOLD ON TO ME
I FELT THE WINDS OF CHANGE
WHEN WE WERE STANDING IN THE DUST
WATCHING THE FREIGHT TRAINS
YOU KISSED MY EYES AND I HELD YOUR HAND
IN A ROOM BY THE HOUR IN A BORDER TOWN
AMERICAN BEER
Track Name: South Street
SOUTH STREET

LIVING ON THE THIRD FLOOR
DOWNTOWN
DRINKING AT THE BARS
WATCHING PEOPLE ON THE STREET
A MILLION FACES PASS BY
BUT I DON’T KNOW NOT ONE
SHE’S WORKING FOR TIPS
SO I’LL SIT HERE ALONE
IN THIS
STRANGE DESERT CITY
STRANGE DESERT SUN
WATCHING THE GUY CLEAN THE STREETS
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
I WONDER WHO’S WAITING FOR HIM?
LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW BY CANDLELIGHT
IS HE HAPPY AT HOME
OR DOES HE GET DRUNK ALONE
TO A COLD BROKEN DOWN ROOM
AND WONDER WHAT HE’S DOING TO HIS SOUL
IN THIS
STRANGE DESERT CITY
STRANGE WATERING HOLE
STRANGE DESERT CITY
FOR EVERYONE
I NEED A NEW PAIR OF SHOES
I GOT THE HOMETOWN BLUES
BUT THEN I THINK OF ALL MY FRIENDS
WHO CUT ME LOOSE
Track Name: Chase The Sun
CHASE THE SUN

BEHOLD THE MOUNTAINS FAR FROM THE SEA
A MILLION MILES FROM HOME GIRL
JUST YOU AND ME
LETS CHASE THE SUN
THESE TEXAN TOWNS ARE CRAZY
THEY RUN FOR MILES
LETS DRINK TO YOU AND ME GIRL
CAUSE I LIKE YOUR SMILE
LET’S CHASE THE SUN
BEST BE GETTING ON THE TELEPHONE
TELL THEM THAT I’M NEVER COMING HOME
WELL WE WERE DOING DRUGS IN SANTA FE
HOTEL ROOMS IN NEW YORK CITY
RIDING TRAINS IN TOKYO
THE STREETS OF MEXICO
CALLED MY MOTHER ON THE TELEPHONE
TOLD HER THAT I’, NEVER COMING HOME
CALLED MY SISTER ON THE TELEPHONE
TOLD HER THAT I’M NEVER COMING HOME
WHEN I TOLD MY MOTHER SHE ASKED ME WHY
YOU KNOW THAT I HATE TO SEE HER CRY
IF YOU COULD SEE ALL THE THINGS I’VE DONE
YOU’D KNOW I’VE GOT TO CHASE THE SUN
Track Name: All My Friends
ALL MY FRIENDS

WELL I SEE YOU ON THE STREET
I SEE YOU ON EVERY MELBOURNE CORNER
I SEE YOU IN THE BARS AND I SEE YOU IN THE CROWD
I SEE YOU WHEN I SHUT MY EYES I SEE YOU WHEN I SLEEP
BUT DAMN YOU I WILL NOT GO OUT THIS WAY
SO HOLD ME DOWN UNDER THE WATER
HOLD ME DOWN AND BURY ME
BECAUSE I WILL NOT BE REMEMBERED THIS WAY
WALK SOFTLY NOW THE END IS CALLING
AND I KNOW WHAT I HAVE TO DO
I JUST THREW AWAY THE LAST FLOWER I BOUGHT FOR YOU
I’VE BEEN WATCHING IT DIE FOR DAYS
WAITING FOR THE RIGHT MOMENT TO LET YOU GO
AND HERE IT IS
SO HERE’S YOUR FUCKING LOVE SONG
PULLED FROM THE TEETH OF CHANGE
NOW YOU’VE GONE AND DAMAGED IT
AND IT’LL NEVER BE THE SAME
I FLICKERED LIKE A CANDLE
IN THE ROOM WE USED TO SHARE
BUT YOU WERE OUT DRINKING AND DIDN’T EVEN CARE
SO NOW ALL MY FRIENDS ARE WAITING
OPEN ARMED IN DOWNTOWN BARS
THEY’RE MUSICIANS AND THEY’RE POETS
AND SOME ARE EVEN FALLEN STARS
THEY DON’T CARE MY T-SHIRTS DIRTY
ALL STAINED WITH PITY AND FEAR
AS LONG AS I’M BUYING THE NEXT BEER
ALL MY FRIENDS ARE FUCKED UP
AND ALL MY FRIENDS ARE DRUNKS
AND ALL MY FRIENDS TALK A LOT OF SHIT
AND TAKE TOO MANY DRUGS
BUT ALL MY FRIENDS LOOKED AFTER ME
WHEN YOU LET ME DOWN
AND I WOULDN’T HAVE THEM ANY OTHER WAY
SO I THINK I’LL GO GET HIGH WITH THEM TODAY
Track Name: The Boys In The Public Bar
THE BOYS IN THE PUBLIC BAR..

SOME BLOKE PUNCHED HIS GIRLFRIEND
IN FRONT OF MY MATE
IN A BAR FULL OF LOCALS NOT FAR FROM HERE
DEFENDER OF JUSTICE
MY MATE STEPPED ON IN
NOBODY HELPED WHILE THE BLOKE PUT HIM IN HOSPITAL
TRUE STORY
SOMETIMES I DOUBT IF WE’RE TRULY EVOLVING
SOME PLACES I’VE BEEN FOLKS TOO COOL TO CHANGE
YOUNG MEN OVERWHELMED BY THEIR PICKLED EMOTIONS
DISLOCATED, SUPPRESSED AND TOO COOL FOR CHANGE
AND THE BOYS IN THE PUBLIC BAR SAY..
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH SOMETHING ABOUT FOOTBALL
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH SOMETHING ABOUT BEER
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH THEY LAUGH SO LOUDLY
SO THE WOMEN CAN’T TELL THAT THEY’RE RIDDLED WITH FEAR
NOW ALL OF THE YOBOS ARE DISGUISED AS METROS
AND ALL THE METROS PRETEND TO BE GAY
AND THEN THERE’S SOME GAYS THAT PRETEND TO BE YOBOS
GUESS THAT SEX IS JUST FASHION THESE DAYS
AND THE BOYS IN THE PUBLIC BAR SAY…
AS SURE AS HIS HEROES ARE OUTLAWS
AS SURELY AS NIGHT FOLLOWS DAY
WELL HE SINKS TOO MUCH PISS
AND HE TALKS WITH HIS FISTS AND RIGHT NOW
HE’S GOT A SHITLOAD TO SAY
AND THE BOYS IN THE PUBLIC BAR SAY…
TO CRY FOR THEMSELVES LACKS MACHISMO
THE APE ON HIS HIND LEGS STANDS TALL
BUT TO CRY FOR THE BOYS WOULD BE UN-AUSTRALIAN
IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE SOME HAD MOTHERS AT ALL
Track Name: Devil On The Road
DEVIL ON THE ROAD…

THERE WAS A DEVIL ON THE ROAD NOW HE’S IN MY HEAD
I LET HIM SEDUCE ME WITH THE THINGS HE SAID
HE WALKED ALONG SIDE OF ME AND WHISPERED IN MY EAR
THAT LOVE IS LETTING GO OF FEAR
YOUR EIGHT YEARS AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT FROM THE SUN
HOW CAN YOU KNOW THE LIGHTS NOT ALREADY OUT
THAT TODAY’S NOT THE ONE
WHEN THE WINDS OF CHANGE CALL YOUR NAME
WHEN THE WHOLE SHITHOUSE GOES UP IN FLAMES
YOU KNOW I MET A DEVIL ON THE ROAD
HE HELD UP A MIRROR TO MY SOUL
AND I BARGAINED HIM FOR JUST A TASTE
AND NOW I FEAR HE’S LAID MY SOUL TO WASTE
HE SAID WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL LEAVE BEHIND
WHEN YOUR FLESH FALLS AWAY
AND DRESSED IN ONLY YOUR MIND
WHAT OF THE MONUMENTS YOU BUILD
WILL STAND TOMMOROW IN THAT FIELD
WHAT NEW ROADS WILL YOUR CHILDREN BUILD
ABOVE WHAT WILL THEY RISE
BENEATH WHAT WILL THEY YIELD
I DON’T KNOW
CAN YOU SAY THAT YOU’VE MASTERED THIS GAME
THE DEVIL ON THE ROAD WAS A WISEMAN
NOW I’M SCARRED BY THE WARMTH
OF HIS COMFORTING HAND
Track Name: The River
THE RIVER..

THE RIVER’S SO DEEP AND IT’S BANKS ARE SO WIDE
WHO THOUGHT WE’D GET TO MEET AGAIN ON A BEND
IN THIS AMAZING LIFE
BUT HERE WE ARE BACK DOWN BY THE RIVER
I’LL SAY I’LL TRY TO GET IT RIGHT THIS TIME AROUND
BUT THESE WATERS RUN FAST
AND THERE’S NOT MUCH STEADY GROUND
AND THE WOMAN YOU’VE BECOME
YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE BECOME WITH ME
BECAUSE THE BEAUTY IN YOU
COMES FROM THE LOVERS
AND THE PLACES THAT YOU’VE BEEN
SO WE GO DOWN TO THE RIVER
WE’RE LETTING OUR FEET TOUCH THE WATER
AND I’M JUST LOVING THIS NEW DAY THAT’S DAWNING
I JUST HOPE I GET TO SEE YOUR FACE IN THE MORNING
WHEN YOUR WORDS DON’T MEAN A THING
AND YOU COULD BLEED FOR NOTHING
AND TIME IS YOUR ONLY FRIEND
ALL I CAN SAY IS THE WOMAN YOU’VE BECOME
IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL TO ME
Track Name: I'll Be The One
I’LL BE THE ONE…

NO NO MY MOTHER NEVER TAUGHT ME HOW TO DANCE
IM NOT WEARING ANY PANTS O-OH
YOUR BARBEQUE WAS GOOD
BUT NOW I REALLY THINK I SHOULD
GET OUT OF DODGE WHILE I STILL GOT THE CHANCE
PICK IT UP
MY LEGS ARE JUST PAINTED ON
WHERE THE HELL HAS EVERYBODY GONE?
WHAT HAPPENED TO THOSE FRIENDS OF MINE?
I SHOULDNT’VE MIXED THAT REEFER
WITH THE CHEAP RED WINE
YOUR BARBEQUE WAS GOOD
BUT NOW I REALLY THINK I SHOULD
GET OUT OF DODGE WHILE I STILL GOT THE TIME
MY LEGS ARE JUST PAINTED ON
WHERE THE HELL HAVE ALL MY SUPPOSED FRIENDS GONE
YOUR BARBEQUE WAS GOOD
BUT NOW I REALLY THINK I SHOULD
GET OUT OF DODGE WHILE I STILL GOT
SOMETHING BETTER TO
WELL, I’LL BE THE ONE
NOT WASTING TIME WITH ROMANCE
I’LL BE THE ONE
MY MOTHER NEVER TAUGHT ME HOW TO DANCE
I’LL BE THE ONE
I’LL TELL YOU WHAT IM GOING TO DO
I’M GOING TO CHASE YOU DOWN
AND STICK IT IN YOU
RAINCHECK ME
CAN’T FEEL MY LEGS, CAN’T FEEL MY LEGS
