Jonah Harper Though the lyrics in this EP lack the poignancy of those Eddie sings in Citycop, that doesn't take too much away from this project. Solid, slow acoustic songs, and is worth a listen.

Track Name: I Am The Lion
The factory worker said "Hey man, don't be sad. We clock out in two hours, it's really not so bad. Health plan and benefits are pretty rad."
Then he lit up his cigarette and walk away.

I am the lion, hear me roar.
Just drivin' through the city in my Chevy four door.
Yes, I am the king. But who fucking cares?
Cause I am the king, the king of bullshit.

Today I woke up and I didn't feel anything at all.
My emotions have faded as I stare at the wall.
The best thing I had today was my morning coffee.
The best thing I'll have tomorrow is the same thing.

I am the lion, hear me roar.
Just drivin' through the city in my Chevy four door.
Yes, I am the king. But who fucking cares?
Cause I am the king, the king of bullshit.

If only I had finished college I'd be on the right track,
I'd make a lot of money, pay my loans back.
I'd wear a suit and tie and go on conference calls.
Buy a frame and hang a piece of paper on my wall.

I am the lion, hear me roar.
Just drivin' through the city in my Chevy four door.
Yes, I am the king. But who fucking cares?
Cause I am the king, the king of bullshit.
Track Name: I Guess We Can't Party Forever
I remember playing Tetris in the living room,
I was four years old, and so were you.

And now you're getting married, now you're getting married.
And I don't think that I can shake this sadness from my body.

I remember riding skateboards down Elm Street.
To the county fair, so we can hang out with some real life girls!
They actually hugged us, a girl actually touched us.

And now you're getting married, now you're getting married.
And I don't think that I can shake this sadness from my body.

I remember drinking my first beer, and we ran down the road and I tripped into a ditch.
And we laughed all night.

And now you're getting married, now you're getting married.
And I don't think that I can shake this sadness from my body.

I'm never getting married, never getting married.
And I'll just let the memories consume my empty body.
Track Name: Act II, Scene I
Called your phone last night, you'll never call me back.
Quit my job last night, I'm never going back.

But It's fine, it's fine. I've got more on my mind.
Cause I'm leaving town tomorrow.

Wrote a poem last week, I haven't shown a soul.
It's like I keep things to myself, hide out like a mole.

But It's fine, it's fine. I've got more on my mind.
Cause I'm leaving town tomorrow.

Told my deepest secrets to a guy on the street.
He felt a little awkward and couldn't wait for me to leave.

But It's fine, it's fine. I've got more on my mind.
Cause I'm leaving town tomorrow.

Drank a case of beer and walked the empty street.
Thought for a while and wondered, When will we finally meet?

But It's fine, it's fine. I've got more on my mind.
Cause I'm leaving town tomorrow.
Track Name: Thoughts From A Van
I can't say when I'll be home, I'll let you know, I'll let you know.
I'm on the run, I'm on my way. But I can't promise anything.
Will you be there when I get home?
Cuddled in a ball in my bed, or will it be empty?
At this point your guess is as good as mine.
Your guess is as good as mine, thanks for asking.

I'll call you when I get the oppritunity
but it's three in the morning and I'm somewhere in Milwaukee.

But time doesn't matter, I've been drunk since I've started writing this awful song.
Track Name: Breathe
I cannot wait to feel myself again.
Get that clarity back in my head.
Nights well spent filled with drugs and wine.
When I layed my head on my pillow, I told myself that everything would be just fine.

And I'll be alright.

I cannot wait to piece myself back together, after I've destroyed myself for so many years.
And when I open my eyes, I see some cloudy weather.
But I'm still a little weary, I'm still a little weary.

But I'll be fine. Im gonna be alright.

I cannot wait to feel like a human being.
After listening to you it doesn't seem like such a farfetchd thing.
Well I know everything you've done today.
I'll never be happy.
But at least I know that I can say.

That I'll be fine.
I'm gonna be alright.
