Track Name: Fairfield
Fairfield

There's a diner down the road
They say it has a name
But everyone who goes there
They just call it the diner

There was a library here
But when it got old
We filled it up with dynamite
And watched it explode

At Christmas time you could see the little Santas
Wave their hands you could watch them for free
But now when you walk these cold cavernous halls
You'll shed a tear, now there's a fee

There's a bush in the corner of the front yard
With a hand that waves as the cars go by
And every few years when the rains come down
You could jump from your window splash all around

In Fairfield
You could get fries and gravy
HEY! There's my brother Davey
Playing softball early Sunday morning
Some say Calandras, others say Calandras
I don't give a damn just give me my bread
In Fairfield, there used to be Good Tymes

Some of these things
They come and go
But forever in my mind they'll stay

Who did you know
Stevenson or Churchill
They prepared you for your future life
So I threw all my change at the Space Invaders
And defended our town from the missles in the sky

In Fairfield
You could get fries and gravy
HEY! There's my brother Davey
Playing softball early Sunday morning
Some say Calandras, others say Calandras
I don't give a damn just give me my cake
In Fairfield, there used to be Good Tymes
Track Name: Roadward Bound
Mmmmm mmmmmmmm lai la la la lai
Mmmmm mmmmmmmm lai la la la lai

It feels good to be home
But I've been sitting here too long
The railway station calls my name
Everybody thinks they know exactly how I'm feeling

Is there still room for a one man band
Who's destination clearly lies across the land
I'm back on the road that's where I belong
And this time I'm taking my love with me

I'm bringing all my nicotine patches
I ain't bringing any cigarettes or matches
'Cause I don't smoke anymore
My guitar and magazines are all I need
But nowhere as much as the girl I love

Is there still room for a one man band
Who's destination clearly lies across the land
I'm back on the road that's where I belong
And this time I'm taking my love with me

I'm singing songs in places see all the strangers faces
I'm sorry that I've been away so long
And the night always ends too fast
I look forward to the next time
Now I'm gonna make this journey last

Is there still room for a one man band
Who's destination clearly lies across the land
I'm back on the road that's where I belong
And this time I'm taking my love with me
And this time I'm taking my love with me
Track Name: Final Flight
I've gone over this
A thousand times in my head
Was it my fault
Did I forget????

When I wake up in the morning
And I look out to the western sky
I wanna see you fly, see you flying home
Was it the radio
I should have checked it again
Tested the frequencies
Receiving transmissions fail
Did you ever hear them?

I've got this sinking feeling
That I did you wrong
Now all the days are too long
She should have held up
If the winds were too strong
You could have made it
If you brought me along
Now your legend still lives on

Tachometer, oil flow, fuel pressure
CHECK
Instrument panel, circuit breakers
CHECK
Stabilizers, landing gear, propellers
CHECK
Airspeed calibration, antenna
ANTENNA!

I've got this sinking feeling
That I did you wrong
Now the days are too long
She should have held up
If the winds were too strong
You could have made it
If you brought me along

When I lay down and try to sleep
I could almost hear the sound of your engines
In my dreams I see the Electra
Flying home
Track Name: In Bright Falls
Hey, here I am
It's a beautiful day here
In Bright Falls
I hope nothing gets in my way
But something don't seem right
I feel safer in the light

It's been two years
Inspiriation it can't be found
Suddenly my life is turned upside down
I ran when I heard her scream (it's too late)
They dragged her into the lake

My name is Alan Wake
And I'm a Writer
But I don't remember writing this story

And as these pages come to life
I hope they help me find my wife

I'm running (running running)
Running through the night
With the help of a flashlight
The Taken they burn and ignite
Here comes some more
They just appear out of the thin air

I'm never giving up on you
The writing shows up on the walls
Maybe that's a clue
That takes me to where you are
I'll travel any distance
I don't care how far

My name is Alan Wake
And I'm a Writer
But I don't remember writing this story
My name is Alan Wake
And I'm a Writer
Track Name: Frostbite
Dark clouds bring down the rain
That freeze upon my window pane
The fire in my heart is burning low
But no one cares and the kitchens' cold

Standing by the river just throwing stones
But they bounce right off 'cause the rivers' cold
This is where we'd go for walks alone
Now I'd rather stay inside 'cause now

It feels like I got frostbite from my
Head down to my toes
Wintertime is cold but its colder
When I sit by the fireplace all alone
You used to look into my eyes
And that's all I'd need to see
And I'd melt away
Awaaaaaaaay

Nothing was gained but all was lost
My soul has turned to ice and singed with frost
Trying hard to keep you in my mind
But the memories fade as they pass through time

I keep your pictures on my wall
But sometimes I think my walls' too small
It helps me keep my memories of you
Alive

It feels like I got frostbite from my
Head down to my toes
Wintertime is cold but its colder
When I sit by the fireplace all alone
You used to look into my eyes
And that's all I'd need to see
And I'd melt away, away
And I'd melt away, away
And I'd melt away, away
And I'd melt away, away
Track Name: Drag Me Down
Drag Me Down

I want to be able to breathe underwater
From the moment I saw you swimming there
I couldn't help but stop and stare
Into your eyes, how they hypnotize
I take one step closer, you beckon me
Your arms are open, begging me

But don't drag me down
'cause I don't want to drown
Just give me some time to learn
To breathe in your world
Don't drag me down

Is this love or some crazy parlor trick
Are you human or just a fish
Filleted or steak, a tasty dish
Or are you an angel sent from the deep blue sea
You say I'm running out of time
I need to choose to live or die

But don't drag me down
'cause I don't want to drown
Just give me some time to learn
To breathe in your world
But don't drag me down

You promise me we'd stay as one forever
Time was running short
I fell into the sea

And you dragged me down
I drowned, died in your arms
You filled me with life again
Now I can breathe in your world
You dragged me down
(I left my life above the ground)
You dragged me down
(To your castle in the sand)
You dragged me down
Track Name: Gluten Free Style
Gluten Free Style

Come on in and take a seat
And you can watch me eat some food
It's supposed to be good for you

The time is now to start making a choice
Of what's good or bad I think I have a plan
Just watch me and you'll understand

In every bite there's a world of mystery
Take a glimpse into my world that's now gluten free

Gluten free style
My diet beats yours by a mile
So go on keep on eating that crap
And ruin your digestive tract
Or you can be
You can be
Gluten free

Just like me
Track Name: Welcome To Kabul
Welcome To Kabul

Walking back to my hotel room
Strange noises all around
Couldn't see a goddamn thing
The lights have all gone out

What I thought I first heard
Couldn't be further from the truth
Bullets flying through the air
Why does life seem to be unfair

Will I ever see my beloved anymore
As bombs explode outside my door

As I lay down here in the corner of my room
I feel my life slowly slip away
Slip away

Will I ever see my beloved anymore
The bombs explode the ground swells and shakes the floor

Six hours later
Last wishes in my pocket
We were saved
But some won't live to see another day

Its been too many years
Since the war began
Won't there ever be a time
When we can live in peace again
Track Name: Alone
I don't want to go to sleep tonight
Don't want to close my eyes
Don't want to drift away
You tell me things will be alright
You tell me that you'll never go
You'll always be right here

No matter how hard I try
The sand gets thrown into my eyes
I slowly spiral down
Into the abyss where you can't be found

Now I'm alone again
My fingers clutch the air
Where your hand once was
I turn and you're not there
I don't know where I am
You left me here
You left me
Alone

There's no one on the street
The lights are out
The emptiness and darkness holds me down
I try to scream but there's no sound
I try to run but my legs are frozen to the ground

Why can't I find you
Why do you always disappear
I'll wrap my arms around you
But when I look there's no one there

Now I'm alone again
My fingers clutch the air
Where your hand once was
I turn and you're not there
I don't know where I am
You left me here
You left me
You left me here
You left me
Alone
Track Name: Eatin' Turkey
I'm eatin' turkey
By myself
A gobble gobble all alone
With nobody else

I'm eatin' turkey
I'm eatin turkey
I'm eatin' turkey all by myself
Track Name: A Workin' Christmas
I'm a workin'
On Christmas day
No ho ho ho ho ho
No fun or play
(No time to spend with my family)

I'm a workin'
Oh yes I'm workin'
I'm workin' on Christmas day
