Track Name: Why Do You Not Surprise Me
Baby why do you not surprise me
Why are you so predictable
Every day you step out of line
And then you get absolved
The morning comes and it's alright
But all this mess it never seems to surprise me

There's nothing worse than a liar
And we both know I'm a gullible
So I understand why you might have thought
that you could get away
hidden beneath your blanket of lies
curled up tight where no one else can see you

You were the girl that I liked
Silver spoon and a chai
Brunette hair down your
Olive skin
And a pearl neckless under your smile
And I don't care if you're
Unaware
I will love you 'till I die

Soon you'll come around and I'll be far away
Evading all the garbage on the ground
In August with the harvest surrounding you
Under the gray sky above

Baby why do you not surprise me
You are so damn predictable
Even that tired look in your eye tonight
Was on the script
Watching the bridge go up in flames
And all this mess it never seems to surprise me
Track Name: Ugly American Man
Ugly American Man
God from another time
Still in a rock & roll band
Star gazing from behind

Starts drinkin' whiskey at five
With love on his mind
Evil can never survive
While he's on the job
Ugly American man (He's gonna make it some day)

He never really could dance
His feet look paralyzed
Buildin' up his defense
And pickin' on the little guy

He condescends with awkward hands
A sucker for a sad romance
Strange denial of sexual desire
No one complains, and none the wiser

Still drinkin' whiskey at five
With love on his mind
Evil can never survive
While he's on the job
Ugly American man (He's gonna make it some day)
