Track Name: Any Directory
Smashed in the alleyway, dangerous and dark
One mean villain laughing at the start of it
Sprawled on the ground, that contrast is stark
From the crown you once wore to your lowest mark

When you’re losing out there call me
Right from the directory
I’m between the lines and all around them
Use any directory

Wild foot traffic heeding no crosswalk,
Scene of mass confusion, don’t know where to start with this
Unknown language is their big talk
That old cold shoulder treatment has you lost

A nighttime’s worth of the wildest stuff
Crystalline teeth didn’t seem so tough
Now the memory’s shot, fumbling with handcuffs
That great escape when you’ve had enough
Track Name: Casual Fan
If you let every time be a missed connection
You may have a price to pay for not trying
Like every jilted heart of the singles congregation
That stalks the halls month after month
Still you pay no mind

Don’t be a casual fan of love
A distant admirer from above
If there’s any desire left in this cruel world
Then you’ve got to show enough
Enough to bring them home
Enough to build your own life together
In action and in tone, spell it out for all to see
That is the only way to proceed

You ran the circuit, got burned a handful of times
Well that’s reality
You met some jerks who repeated line after line
And then you met me
