Too good to be true: By Dusty Awe (2010) I went into the bathroom - the most amazing thing I saw I opened up the door - and I was left standing in awe - The wierdest thing I ever seen, my bathroom it was clean. I pinched my arm and realized that it was just a dream... It was just a dream... Last week I went to work, the most amazing day of all, My boss jumped of the building and my ex-wife caught his fall. - I know that it may seem, that I'm screwed up and pretty mean When something this cool happens then it's usually a dream... It was just a dream... Maybe I would win the lottery and buy a new guitar - My alarm clock will be ringing - before I reach the door. and the - girls of my dreams they always leave - just as - we get to the good stuff... How come on those horrible days I never wake - up...? I dreamt I had a family - I dreamt I had a son Dreamt there was no salvation in a barrel of a gun - And I Dreamt that I was sober - and I dreamt I was with you ...and many other things that are too good to be true too good to be true...

Big FAT waste of SPACE: By Dusty Awe It seems like surviving life is hard Succeed in school, get a wife and a job Eat your greens for dinner and wear sunscreen in the sun There's a whole lot more to living, than to just staying alive And I swear that I would do it if I only had the time Cause sometimes it's hard to get good grades in school And sometimes it's hard to get a job Sometimes it's hard finding a person who'll Always love - just the way you are Who'll always love you just how you are They say that everything that happens' just a normal part of life And for every politician there's a hundret different lies No matter how you vote the politicians always win I've started to believe we probably never changed a thing And sometimes it's hard getting ahead in life And sometimes it's just hard getting the truth Something that I worry 'bout when I lay in bed at night Are things that we go through All the things that we went through It's like one of those relationships Where the someone always has to beg for sex And we're all "that someone" But someone else is "The man". And life's one big headache and I cant understand. ...why so many has to die for it why so many just dont give a shit why the ones who always profit are the ones who dont need more life could be so fucking great - if I had the time to live it but it's short... And we ignore all the problems - and take what we need The animals the ocean the air and trees... Even though it is so f-ing obvious to see... We'll just go on destroying - you and me I think that you should tell me - if you think I've lost my mind And if everything we're doing's not a fucking waste of time That I'm not just a big fat waste of time Tell me that I'm not just a fucking waste of time Please tell me I'm not just a big fat waste of space I wish someone would just give it to me straight!!! I wish someone would just give it to me straight!!!

Can I sleep over tonight: By Dusty Awe Excuse me but can I sleep on your floor? You can trust me though you shouldnt - we never met before. - And I know you didnt offer - and I feel bad I have to ask As soon as the bar closes - I'm out on my ass I wouldnt take up much space, I'll try not to make a mess. You wont wake up in the morning - tied up wearing a dress. - And I wouldnt steal your liver, your girlfriend or your beer. I'll even do the dishes if you just dont leave me here. Excuse me but can I sleep on your floor? I'm tired and I dont want to stay awake no more. - I dont want to start a riot - my hearts here on my sleeve. I promise to keep quiet - please I just need some sleep. I'll make coffee in the morning - I'll fry the pancakes too. I'll do all of your laundry if you let me do mine too. - And then maybe we'll be friends forever - you might lend me some cash, before we go to bed tonight - I'll let you smoke my grass. If when this evenings over I dont have a place to stay, the guilt of your warm bed just wont let you drift away cause you know - I know - you had space you didnt give away And you know - it might, come back to you someday... and hount you in some horrible horrible horrible way. Excuse me but can I sleep on your couch? Get a shower, a blanket, a pillow and a hug. - would you wake me in the morning - if it isnt too much fuzz I dont need to get up early - but I need to catch a bus

Untitled: By Dusty Awe (2006) I’ll never amount to anything – won’t even finish this song, No I’ll never amount to anything – won’t even finish this song. (x2) I’ll hardly get started - I’ll hardly get started - I’ll hardly get started singing this song! And I’ll never sing anything no one ever said before, no I’ll never sing anything no one ever said before. (x2) I’ll hardly get started - I’ll hardly get started - I’ll hardly get started singing this song! - And it’s not because I don’t know exactly how these words are suppose to go – It’s just ‘cause I’m really not sure – what I meant to be singing would even help you to know – what I meant to be singing wouldn’t help you to know – what I meant to be singing wouldn’t help you to know – what I meant to be singing wouldn’t help you to know. So I just keep on singing – buying some time. A simple rime in a simple line. A simple line with a simple rime If I just keep on moving – I’m sure I’ll be fine – If I just keep on singing I won’t lose my mind. I’ll hardly get started - I’ll hardly get started - I’ll hardly get started singing this song! - And it’s not because I don’t know exactly how these words are suppose to go – It’s just ‘cause I’m really not sure – what I meant to be singing would even help you to know – what I meant to be singing wouldn’t help you to know – what I meant to be singing wouldn’t help you to know – what I meant to be singing wouldn’t help you to know. I’ll hardly get started - I’ll hardly get started - I’ll hardly get started singing this song!

Not too bad for a song: By Dusty Awe (2008) I'm deep in dept - it's kinda hard to take and the rent is already late But I called the landlord this morning and told him that the bank had made some mistake - That was fake No money is comming This month I wont get paid I don't have a job - 'hardly do anything except sitting here singing this song And I know what they'll say - It's not great, it's not great Way too many of my stories start with - "Remember the time we got drunk" With all the lies I've told it never seems to be enough - And it's not That I don't trust you or I'm trying to act tough No it's just because deep down inside 'already feel imbarresed enough And I know what they'll say - It's not great, it's not great Even if I scream I'm truly fucking sorry You still wont know just how sorry I am I know for all the stuff that I complain about I only have myself to blame - I'm ashamed I cant stop lying Right now I'm lying to your face "It's not great" Is what you'll say And I know what they'll say - It's not great, it's not great

We’re only gonna die: By Dusty Awe (2005) Have you ever told your mom – that she was stupid. Though you didn’t mean it at all – just angry and confused. And you locked yourself in your room – with too much to feel and nothing to do. Have you ever let someone down – not like you meant to. But like “not being around” – when they really needed you. But don’t put yourself down – too much to feel yet something to do. Have you ever confessed your sins – And afterwards Did it make you feel better within – I hardly think so You probably went and did it again – too much to feel and too much to do = Cuz we’re only gonna die – we’re only gonna loose. Although you try and try – there’s nothing you can do I hope you’re fond of your life – cuz in the end it won’t be alright. No in the end it won’t be alright... there will be a reason you’re gonna die! So just look back and laugh – we’re only gonna die. And it’s not what you feel – but what you were feeling at the time. No it’s not what you know – but what you were thinking at the time. So spend more time making laughs - and less time wondering why you’re sad. = Cuz we’re only gonna die – we’re only gonna loose Although we try and try – there’s nothing we can do I hope you’re fond of your life – cuz in the end it won’t be alright. No in the end it won’t be alright... there will be a reason we’re gonna die!

No advice: By Dusty Awe (2009) ...skin on my knees is wearing thin - seems I've been crawling all my life took some bad advice and with my simple mind - I believed in all the lies Till the head I was born with - was all filled up with shit All the politics off the tv sets I believed in all of it And I tried all of the medicine I tried of all the books Tried a new location I tried a new look I drank a lot of alcohol I tried just to forget I did a lot of drugs, it seems they havent kicked in yet I tried just using tape - they say it works on anything rolled rolled rolled but couldnt find the end I tried to shave my legs one day but that was just for fun But looking back I think that that's the only thing I've done Until I got this guitar - taught myself to play Wrote down my own lyrics and sung them my own way No I'm not a source of comfort no I'm not the voice of hope Everything I've written is just another joke... ...another - joke! And I dont have any answers - nor do I have an excuse And all my life I will appologize I dont have advice - have no advice - dont have advice. have no advice - dont have advice - have no advice

Don’t wanna get blamed for it: By Dusty Awe (2005) If money is all you wish for – then it’s all you’ll ever get And if love is all we need – then what the fuck are we gonna eat!? Now what’s the big deal with meat – when everyday we kill for less? Not one hundred million bombs are ever gonna clean this mess So I smoke a cigarette – and put my self to bed and if I die before I wake – another idiot left this place but if just one song I made – ever made someone feel safe I hope it’s ‘cause they didn’t get it Or they made some huge mistake… Interpreting it! So let the soldiers go to war – and blow themselves to bits! And may everybody suffer – for what everyone else did! Until no one can coexist - and we become too proud to admit: “Even though we gave our very best, we simply didn’t give a shit!!!” So I smoke a cigarette – and put my self to bed and if I die before I wake – another idiot left this place but if just one song I made – ever made someone feel safe I hope it’s ‘cause they didn’t get it Or they made some huge mistake And it wasn’t something I said! ’Cause I don’t wanna get blamed for it...
