Track Name: Joliet (Loud)
Snowy Joliet
I appreciate the space
I appreciate the time
But I've ruined it again
Track Name: Stuck
I thought you had run out
I knew I felt that way
And I was stuck

I was scared of being here
Though it wasn't much to fear
And I was stuck forever more

I was pushed to small dark spaces
Digging deep ditches, swallowing dirt
And I was stuck

I tried my hardest but you
Don't let up for one second
And I was stuck forever more

I don't know how to lie
I've got to learn someday
I don't know how to lie
I oughta learn sometime
Track Name: July 7
You think you've got me down right now
You think you've got me figured out
But you should try to see

I think it's different in your mind
In my mind, I try everyday
But you just don't know
Track Name: Stranger
I met a man in the street
He kissed my feet
He gave me good advice
He told me not to lie
Met a man in the street
Gave me good advice
Asked for me some change
It was something strange

Now this man in the street
Laying at my feet
His blood on the wall
Some sort of nasty fall
Coulda paid his bail
That's how they always fail
Always try not to talk
It was something strange

Why are you a stranger?
Why am I a stranger?
Why are you a stranger?
I know I've become stranger

Why am I a stranger in this world?
You don't talk to me
You don't really talk to me
Track Name: Joliet (Quiet)
Here in Joliet
The nice little mining town
We've got our nice cathedral
You oughta stick around

Hey Joliet
You're a pretty cool place
Tomorrow we'll go to Chicago
And the next day we will leave

We will carry home
Just a few memories
Of our time spent in the snow
And our faces in the breeze
