Move On 03:52
I’m sending this out with apathy. I’m running thin on empathy. I should be out there running. I should be out there screaming. The airwaves should be breathing me. 
Another dead end is testing me. A lullaby that keeps resting me. I should be out there moving. I should be out there running. Revival is what I really need. 
 But I know I’ve got to keep on moving. Yes I know I’ve gotta move on. I’ve gotta move on. 
I’m sending this out with energy. My sleepiness burned in effigy. I should be out there running. I should be out there screaming. The airwaves should be breathing me. Cause I know I’ve got to keep on moving. Yes I know that I’ve gotta move on. I’ve gotta move on. ©2009 - Matthew Lyle Baxter

Emily 04:28
I’m leaving on a plane today that takes me far from you. It’s not a trip I want to take. It’s what I have to do. I’m leaving and it’s plain to see I don’t wanna leave you hear behind. So while you can’t hold on to me, you’ve gotta leave me on you mind 
Cause trust me when I say that while I am away you’re gonna feel alone. And all you have to do is know that I’ll be true and love me when I’m gone. I’m putting us on the line. Just don’t forget that I am yours and you are mine. Emily tell me that you’ll never leave me tell me and I will believe it. 
Believe in everything I say cause that’s the only way we’ll pick it up when I get home just like we never missed a day 
Cause trust me when I say that while I am away I’m gonna be alone but all I have to do is know that you’ll be true and love you while I’m gone. I don’t want to have to find if its better to be out of sight or out of mind. Emily tell me that you’ll never leave me tell me and I will believe it. I’m putting us on the line. Just don’t forget that I am yours and you are mine. Emily tell me that you’ll never leave me tell me and I will believe it. ©2009 - Matthew Lyle Baxter

Everything is falling apart and I don’t care. And it bugs the shit out of me that I don’t care. It’s hard to pry these lazy bones from an easy chair. I think of me alone and old and I get scared. 
 And I don’t know why but I got something that helps me turn this heavy load into a featherweight. 
Obey the pain complacently in my old age. Doubt feels like it’s gonna leave, but it always stays. And even though I swear I’m gonna give up everyday. Something gets me out of bed to try another way. 
 And I don’t know why but I got something that helps me turn this heavy load into a featherweight. ©2009 - Matthew Lyle Baxter

I’m waiting for the day, waiting so patiently for things to go back to the way they used to be for me when I was alone at night and quiet didn’t bother me at all. 
 Since she’s not around, I’ve had a lot of time to think and its only brought me down But now I’ve come to realize there’s always something I should fear more than trying to get to ‘me alone’. And I’ll start by saying we fell apart and it happens all the time. 
I don’t mean to undermine or try to make light of things cause when she left I died but I was talking to a friend who said she can’t remember when her and I were even a thing at all and it burns when you finally learn that it happens all the time and now it’s easy to see how it happens all the time. 
Now it’s quiet once again in my lonely room at night and it doesn’t bother me at all 
 Cause I’ve learned everyone gets burned and it happens all the time and now It’s easy to see how it happens all the time. ©2009 - Matthew Lyle Baxter

Bad Girl 04:04
She’s not a bad girl, she’s just good at bringing me down. She’s not a sad girl, she’s just happy when I’m not around. And its my heart that’s breaking but I ain’t gonna cry. I’ll give her love like I should because this bad girl is good. 
She’s not uptight, though our friends are not the same. When I see her around she’s always calling out my name. I try to get in closer. She just pushes me away. But I wouldn’t quit if I could because this bad girl is good. 
 All her friends keep telling me that she’s got nothing but wrong for me. If they’re right I’d give up this fight and I’d let her go but she’s got the hold on me. She’s not a bad girl. ©2009 - Matthew Lyle Baxter

Las Vegas 04:14
I’ve got time, I’ve got time and a notion in my mind that we could talk and try to push this thing along. I got your note, got your note and a picture book of photos to remind me but you know it wasn’t me who had forgot. I’ve got fears, I’ve got fears that I ain’t known in all my years as I drive to your new home out in the desert. I’ve got hope, I’ve got hope but its tied up in a rope made up of doubts that this could ever happen to you and me. You got a way about you that makes me fight all the things I know for sure are right. Even though I know why you’re not here I can’t see how you got away from me. I’ve got your face, got your face in my hands but empty space is all I find to try to help to ease my mind. Now I’ve got doubts, I’ve got doubts cause I’m realizing now that this won’t work when you can’t even look me in the eyes. You got a way about you that makes me fight all the things I know for sure are right. Even though I know why you’re not here I can’t see how you got away from me. Got my feet, got my feet and they walk across the street to my car but you’re not coming with me So I’ve got tears, I’ve got tears and they blur my rear-view mirror as I see Las Vegas slowly fading away. You got a way about you that makes me fight all the things I know for sure are right. Even though I know why you’re not here I can’t see how you got away from me.

If you could see inside my head I know that you would surely find a thousand armies out of step cause the drummer isn’t playing If you could see inside my room in the day or late at night in a very solemn mood all alone I will be playing. 
 All dressed up with no place left to go I’m a loaded gun about ready to explode. Let’s play shows. 
I understand the necessity of getting it all down on tape but hunched over those damn machines my body starts aching. It’s enough to make me sick. I really think I’m gonna cry. I’m a big frustrated mess when my band isn’t playing. 
 But ask me in five weeks out on the road. I’ll be dying for time in the studio. Let’s play shows. 
 It’s a really stupid way, I agree, to never ever be where you want to be. it’s a really stupid way, I agree, to never be what you want to be. ©2009 - Matthew Lyle Baxter
