Track Name: Hard Reaction To Love
"Hard Reaction to Love"
by Corey Landis

INTRO: F Dm/Bb

VERSE 1
F Dm/Bb
I'm dodging dishes
F Eb Bb/D
By my head a frying pan whizzes
F/C C F/D C/E F
Mouthing silent prayers to God above

My wise-cracking
Has caused unforeseen ransacking
She turns on a dime and plays way too rough
She just has a hard reaction to love
Bb/F F

CHORUS
Bb F
And I love her I do
(hard reaction to--)
But I think I'm about through
(hard reaction to love)
F/D F/Bb
'Cause all the screaming and the fisticuffs
Make me want to hock the diamond in the rough
F/C F
I thought I knew

VERSE 2
Things were fine for a year
I can't even recall when the fire (first) appeared
It's hard to think straight when you're being shoved

But after the dust settles
And I'm picking off flower petals
She says she's sorry and I shouldn't feel rebuffed
She just has a hard reaction to love

CHORUS
And I love her I do
(hard reaction to--)
But I think I'm about through
(hard reaction to love)
'Cause all the screaming and the fisticuffs
Make me want to hock the diamond in the rough
I thought I knew

BRIDGE
Eb Eb/F Bb Eb/Bb Bb
It doesn't matter that I don't deserve it
It's up to me if I want to preserve it
I've just gotta hold onto the good times
Bb Bb/A Bb/G Bb/F
When I observe them
Bb/Eb Bb/F
Or learn to take a punch
Bb
If I can't swerve them

VERSE 3

(INST.)

So, she's got some issues
It's hard to tell if she's gonna hit you or kiss you
I'm gonna have to invest in some boxing gloves
To soften her hard reaction to love

by Corey Landis

So judgmental
Am
If I were you I'd
Dm
Update your dental
Am
Insurance soon

Bb/F F
'Cause if you don't knock that talk off (oh oh)
Bb/F F
I'm gonna knock your block off (oh oh)
Dm G
Your opinions aren't your own
C7
Oh, no, they're just rentals

REFRAIN

But you are just a worthless...

INST. REFRAIN (breakdown)

REPEAT REFRAIN
Track Name: Loose Ends
"Lose Ends"

INTRO: Am/C Bb/D F/C Dm (rep.)

VERSE 1
Am/C Bb/D
Time expands and contracts
F/C Dm
Like a rusty accordion
Am/E Bb/F
Until I'm old and wrinkled
F/C C
Like a pruny Floridian

Bb F
Step backwards though my footprints
Bb F
Straighten the picture on the wall
Eb Bb/D
Comb the ends of the rug
Eb/Bb F/C
Check the phone in case you called
Gm Gm/F
Clean the wall before I pound it
Dm (trans. Dm/E) F
Leave it all the way I found it

REFRAIN
Eb Bb
And tie up all the loose ends (rep.)
Eb Bb F
Tie up all the loose ends

VERSE 2
Been unnoticed so long
Feel like a Gideon
Now I'm trapped in the fire
Like a branch Davidian

I'm behind a 2-way mirror
Like a shoplifter at Walgreens
You're just checking your lipstick
But it looks like your blowing kisses to me

You don't know me like you think you do
I'll straighten up when I'm all through

REFRAIN
And tie up all the loose ends
Tie up all the loose ends

BRIDGE
Dm Bb F (rep.)

Dm Dm/Bb Bb/F F
There's no such thing as a venial sin
Bb F C
I don't know where to stop, where to begin
Dm Dm/Bb Bb/F F
So underestimate the state I'm in
Bb F C
They'll be searching for your next of kin

INTRUMENTAL

CHORUS
Track Name: Depleted
"Depleted"

VERSE 1
Em Am
They fixed the highway
G Em
Now there's a scar going down the road
A
And you can't tell
Em
Which line to follow

You let everything
Eat away at you too long
It's bound to
Leave you hollow

CHORUS
A Em
But the dog is sleeping
The toms are peeping
The souls are keeping
Am Em
The conclusions are leaping
D
And both you and I
Em
Should be sleeping

VERSE 2
The only thing
That keeps you going some days
Is knowing
It's in your blood

But sometimes it's
Just a trickle
Sometimes
It's a flood

CHORUS
But the dog is sleeping
The toms are peeping
The souls are keeping
The conclusions are leaping
And both you and I
Should be sleeping

BRIDGE
F Am
You just keep on giving
F Am
And everyone's on the take
G
Too many striped pajamas ruin even
Am
The best-planned jailbreak

VERSE 3
You've said everything
You have to say and yet
You haven't
Said a thing

How can there be
So much pressure
When no one's
Listening?

CHORUS
The file's deleted
Death cheated
Your dough's been kneeded
Robert is reeded
And both you and I
are depleted

But the dog is sleeping
The toms are peeping
The souls are keeping
The conclusions are leaping
And both you and I
Should be sleeping
Track Name: My Deal Wade
"My Deal Wade" ("Fargo Rock City") by Corey Landis 10/8/09

VERSE
Db/Ab Gb/Ab Ab
You gotta keep the cops out of the ransom game

Ask Stan Grossman, he'll tell you the same
Db/B
I know you think you know what to do
Db/Ab Ab
but this deal ain't for you


CHORUS
Db (Db/Eb) E (E/Gb) Ab
This is my deal here, Wade, this is my deal

You don't know how it feels
Db/Gb (Db/Ab) Bbm add Ab
To have to deal with this all alone
Db/Gb Eb
With a kidnapper on the phone
Db Ab
This is my deal here, Wade

VERSE 2
You liked my land proposal, you said it looked pretty sweet
But then you went and yanked the rug from right under my feet
But this time you've got no say
We're gonna do this my way

CHORUS


BRIDGE
Fm Eb/Bb
I don't know what I did to you that you never liked me
Db/Ab
Don't try to deny it, everyone can see
Bbm (Bbm/Db) Ab/Eb Eb
I know you're a bigshot, I know you are rich
Ab/Db Db Ab
But the fact remains, Wade, you're a son-of-a-bitch

(INST.)

CHORUS
Track Name: The Ballad Of Mikey Stone
"Mikey Stone"
by Corey Landis

INTRO: C F C G

VERSE:
C F C F
I used to be in a boy band
C F
I was one of the five kings
C F
Of this FM land
G
The A&R guy made me sing
F C C/B
Songs I couldn't stand
Am Am/G F G
But now I'm a golf club salesman

INTRO
VERSE
INTRO
F Em Dm G/B C
I had my own doll you could get at the mall

If you pulled my string I'd say, "My favorite season is Fall"

But we started to get old

I turned 15 and they said I was looking like a toad

Stopped getting paid, stopped getting laid

And the paper said I was gay

I'm my favorite trivia answer anyway

(INSTRUMENTAL VERSE: bass...come in after 8 measures on...)
G F C C/B Am Am/G F G

VERSE
C F
...when I told you my name
C F
Yes it's me Mikey Stone, the one and the same
G
I know I've grown up
F C C/B
You don't have to say
Am Am/G F G C
I'd just like to sell you a three wood a day

INTRO X 2
Track Name: Dress For The Weather
"Dress For The Weather"

by Corey Landis 5/08

INTRO
Am/F Am (rep.)

VERSE
Gonna write me a rock song
Gonna make it real good
It's gonna right all I've done wrong
And make things how they should be

Gonna sting you with boredom
Gonna hurt you with pain
Gonna die old in Florida
Catching a cold in the rain

PRE-CHORUS
C C/F (rep.)

CHORUS
D F#m
Gonna end like a movie
Gonna go down in flames
A/G F#m/A
But I'll never dress for the weather
No I'll never dress for the weather

VERSE 2
Gonna lap up the drainage
Gonna untie the knots
Gonna lose all my brainage
And watch all my thoughts rot away

Gonna reap all the detriments
Gonna do it with style
Gonna burn all your testaments
And make things right for a while

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL

VERSE 3
Gonna toss your house
You're gonna sleep in the street
Gonna pile up your things
And douse 'em in gasoline
Track Name: I Love You (But You're Crazy)
I Love You (But You're Crazy)
by Corey Landis

INTRO:
G D/G C9 Cmaj7

G D/G
I love you
C9 Cmaj7
but you're crazy
G D/G
you say you love me, too
Em/C
but I'm lazy
C/A
and I don't care
Em/C C/A
I guess that's my cross to bear
G/E F9 C9
so I'll be here and you won't be anywhere

Dm/Bb F
You're watching Clueless, I'm watching Clue
Dm/Bb F D
You're watching me, I'm watching you


I want you
but you're strange
you used to want me, too
but I'm not deranged enough for you
so what are we gonna do
when we just can't say we're through

C9 G Gmaj7 C9
woke up tired from talking in my sleep

making plans I didn't plan on
G D C9
keeping with you
G F E/C
fear sticks to me like dust on vinyl
D
but your scratches cut right through
if your memory
is like paper
then the truth is
just an old stapler
it tears right through
leaving little holes too big to glue
soon there'll be nothing left of you

(INST)

i love you but you're crazy
