Track Name: I Lost My Telephone
I lost my telephone
The one with your voice inside it
And now I'm all shook up because
I can't call to say, "what's up"

I lost my telephone
I lose everything I own
Forget everything I own
I lost my goddamn telephone

I forgot your birthday baby
I hope you forgive me it's just lately
I don't know where my mind is
I think I left it out by the shed

With my telephone
I lost everything I own
Forget everything I know
I lost my goddamn telephone

I misplaced a photograph
The one with your face inside it
And now I'm missing you bad
That was the only picture I had

I lost my telephone
I lose everything I own
Forget everything I know
I lost my goddamn telephone

There's something about me baby
It's real messed up when I can't remember what I ate for lunch
I swear that I'm 'aint crazy
I'm just a quirky kid I think it runs in my family

This time it's the last straw
I think I went and lost my drawers
They were there last time I checked
But now I'm naked and upset

And I lost my telephone
I lose everything I own
Forget Everything I own
I lost my goddamn telephone
Track Name: Gimme No Control
I let my finger say what they want
I've got no control
I want no control
I disconnected my head from my heart
Don't know no love songs
I can't sing you none

I'm like a blind man lost in the dark
I can talk that talk, but i'm a docile dog a heart
There's no rope I can hold or let go
Just a stone I roll
But I've got no control

Control, control, control...
Loving is easy when you're dumb as a doornail

I want to sing to you like a violin
I've got no control
I want no control
I'm like a flash in a pan in the dark
I've got no control
I want no control

Control, control, control...
Loving is easy when you're dumb as doornail

I want to move like the melody halftime
I've got no control
I want no control
There's no rope I can hold or let go
Just a stone I roll
But I've got no control

I got no control
I got no control
Give me no control
I want no control
I want no control
Give me no control

Loving is easy when your dumb as a doornail
Track Name: There's a High Moon
Really babe I don't miss you all the time
It's just those moments when I'm awake
I don't miss you when I'm sleeping
'Cause I see you clear as day
I dream of you all dressed in blue
At Peaks Island, Casco Bay
We are old folks but we got young love
and your dress moves like the waves

It's a long road, it's a long road
There's a high moon, better take hold

Sometimes I wish I could drink from a dish
Just be a feral cat walking the line
See them boys throwing stones at your window
They know nothing about their crimes
It's a long road baby there's a high moon ahead
So I go lightly where I tread
Tip-toe to your ally window
Take the back roads to your bed

It's a long road, it's a long road
There's a high moon, better take hold
Track Name: La Vie en Soul
Oh when the storm came
You were caught in the hard rain
But you weathered it through
That road can be rough man
You 'aint one for luck man
But do you got soul

I want you to know that I love ya kid
You've got so much soul
That kid's got so much soul

You don't buy no crimes
But you pay the cost
That match was fixed
For you to take the fall
Some men die young
Just to curse the world
Other kids got grit
They're gonna ride that storm

I just want you to know that I love ya kid
You've got so much soul
That kid's got so much soul

I just want you to know that I admire ya kid
You've got so much soul

Oh what a weak design that I felt in the back of my mind
I was free just to do as I please
But courage is a hard to find especially in the dark of your mind
But when you're free you can do as you please

YEAH!
