Track Name: Breaking Even
I'm about two days short of begging for change
I got myself a job but it don't pay
I'm about one month short from robbing a bank
Let myself get caught so I got a place to stay

This is what we call just getting by
Ends just never meet no matter how hard we try
We're working double time for half the pay to stay alive
This is what we call just getting by

I'm about 6 months short of killing a guy
Stealing his ID and taking over his life
I'm about one year short of killing myself
I'm finally better off cause there ain't no debt in hell

This is what we call just getting by
Ends just never meet no matter how hard we try
We're working double time for half the pay to stay alive
This is what we call just getting by

All we want is a couple bucks
It's all we need to get us through the week
We ain't asking much
But I guess that just
How the world will work for us

This is what we call just getting by
Ends just never meet no matter how hard we try
We're working double time for half the pay to stay alive
This is what we call just getting by
Track Name: Mr. Hicks
Lock me away in a cave
Take all my shit away
Cause I'll never be, happier than now
I got 50 friends singing my songs
And I still get the words all wrong
I've probably had a few too many to play, but that's okay
It's gonna be okay!

This is a call to arms
Tonight we're gonna right all our old wrongs
And replace fear with faith
Faith in your fellow man
Faith in one last chance
A little faith in everything you love

And as we try to make the best of the life
Lets plot a course through the agony and strife
Cause the only way we're gonna make it out
Is if we some how figure out
What it's all about

We'll grab all our best friends
And sing just like tonight will never end, like Rodger said
"But the message in these songs has kept me sane all along"

And as we try to make the best of the life
Lets plot a course through the agony and strife
Cause the only way we're gonna make it out
Is if we some how figure out
What it's all about

Lets learn to love the lives we're living right now
Lets learn to love the lives we're living right now
Lets learn to love the lives, that we've been given on this night
Lets learn to love the lives we're living right now
Track Name: Irish Wake
Well if you're trying to leave you're out of luck cause Shane justlined up another shot
Tip'em back and knock'em down, we're gonna have a few more rounds
Tonight we'll sit and sing a song, for those who aren't here to sing along
So raise a glass and roast a toast to the memory of your favorite ghost

For mom and dad, or friend or foe, or anyone that you may know
Who moved along to the other side, a little bit before their time
And I'm sure it brought you to your knees, all the friends and families
If we stick together and just stay strong, they might here us if we sing along

Tonight we drink for those who no longer can
To the men and women in our lives that we won't see again
Who gave us everything that had, and then a little more
We keep'em in the bottom of our pints, and back of our hearts

Through out lives we learn some things, about friends and love and family
Don't take for granted a single day, cause you never know when it'll get taken away
The hardest part of living life is standing by while others die
Spend every day that you have with someone you love with no regret

Tonight we drink for those who no longer can
To the men and women in our lives that we won't see again
Who gave us everything that had, and then a little more
We keep'em in the bottom of our pints, and back of our hearts

Tonight we drink for those who no longer can
To the men and women in our lives that we won't see again
Who gave us everything that had, and then a little more
We keep'em in the bottom of our pints, and back of our hearts

The back of our hearts
The back of our hearts
The back of our hearts
The back of our hearts
