Track Name: The Ballad of Fletcher Reede
I don't drink, I don't smoke
We were out late, and as a joke
She dropped a sodium pentothal
In my Coke now I'm flushed
My mouth's dry, my face wet,
Beneath the bare lightbulb in the basement
As I move to strike the statement
I just lost my self-effacing cool

She said "baby do you feel alright?"
She chuckled,
And I tried to ask her a favor

I wanna take the fifth, cause there's some things you just don't wanna know
You're gonna wish I did, cause there's some things you just don't wanna know

"Baby are my jeans too tight? Where did you really go last night?"
How can I avoid this fight if I can't keep my lips shut tight?

A hustle, a gamble
A handicap that I can't handle
She lit up, like Roman candle,
That shot straight for my throat well I choked
I stalled, I sputtered,
She hung on each word I stuttered,
Sometimes to protect each other
The truth is silver, silence is gold

I would love to confess,
But I can't control what's been comin’ out
Cause me and my jaw ain't speakin’
Me and the claw had a fallin’ out
I just can't work in this condition
My whole life is a work of fiction
I hold myself in contempt
Why should you be any different?
Track Name: Whenever You Call
Though you may not see
Me when you wake up
Still wearin your make up from the night before
I made sure you got home safely
Don't worry baby that's what I'm here for
Though I may not do
Everything you ask me at exactly the moment that you ask me to
Remember I love you
And as long as you want me, I'll be there when you need
There's nothin I won't do

Whenever you call me
I'll come runnin
Whenever you call me
I'll be there
Just gimme a heartbeat
And I'll catch you when you fall
When you call
Whenever you call

I play it close to the vest
I know
I won't deceive you, believe its just a test to see how far we go
And if you want to, I wanna be close to you
You already know I will protect my own
Though I may not do
Everything you ask me at exactly the moment that you ask me to
Remember I love you
And as long as you want me, I'll be there when you need
There's nothin I won't do

I wanna give you everything you need oh
You can just call me anytime
Cause you're everything to me oh
I'll be a still small voice
You can hear if you're listening
Because I love you
I promise I'll be there when you want me
Feel free to call on me
