Track Name: Bricks
I can’t seem to remember
All those days at the strand
Yeah, but I can remember
That my feet love the sand

Throwing bricks at your window
Throwing bricks at your wall
Throwing bricks at your window
Hoping that you might fall

And it goes on and on and on and on and
On and on and on and on right now

I can’t seem to remember
Nor do I understand
Why you gave me your number
Why you held out your hand
Track Name: I'd Rather Be Watching COPS Right Now
The sun sets over on the west side
but my mindset is on the east side
It's funny how our lives get served out
My girlfriend left me
My parents are moving
My bike was stolen
Are you fucking kidding me?

Injecting water through my bloodstream
Drinking problems so I solve them
with a new means
I'm watching people moving backwards
Trying to find some meaning in my own words
It's hard to point out the ringleader
when we're all posting comments from computers

This fairy tale says we fail
but I don't think that's right
The die is cast put on your mask
walk out into the night
Track Name: Scar Rides Home
I look back on the times
That you used to drive
An extra 15 minutes out of your way
And in the passenger's seat
I listened to you repeat
A story that you told me
The other day
And when you realized
You looked at me
You rolled your eyes
You said you're running outta stories to tell
I looked back and I smiled
The ride was less than a mile
I leaned back in my seat and I fell
I fell I fell

See that letter you gave me is all that I got
Left of you heart is blue but my eyes are bloodshot
Red like the sunset or maybe your name
Our meeting was kismet or so we proclaimed
At the end of those eight weeks, fifty-six days
It seems like lately I've lived in ash trays
I pour one more before I fall asleep
On my floor my soul you keep

Cat-eyed lady
You're driving me crazy
Cat-eyed lady
You're gonna kill me

I wish you'd just
Give me the time of day
I've got money to spend
I've got words that I could say
So just give me a chance
It could all go away
This happenstance doesn't happen every day

The weight
Lifts from my shoulders
As the seasons
They grow colder
You were the first thing on my mind
But the last thing I expected to find
In this world of the suit and the tie
So I sing to myself that this isn't the place
Or the time
The time
Track Name: I Can't Believe It's Not Better!
I met this girl by accident
I stayed there for the hell of it
Didn’t think it would last too long

Given my circumstances
And my share of second chances
She my cut it off
That won’t feel good at all

I know
I know now
I’m broken
I’m stupid
I can’t figure out
Why I shut it off
You did nothing wrong

And I know now
How hard it is to show you
How much I love your soul

My girlfriend’s best friend
Slept with her boyfriend
Of seven years’ best friend
Why do people do the things they do?

My internet friend
I wish this didn’t have to end
I let someone down again
Why do people do the things they do?

I’ve been awake for 10 days
You’ve got me down on my knees
I’m begging you to please
Put me back on my feet

But I know
That you won’t

My mind’s been scheming on me
Makes me think I know what I need
Mix a drink and feel my heart bleed
Won’t you put me back on my feet

But I know
That you won’t
Track Name: hmu
The wind it sings a song
Then pushes you
Out into the open sea

The mind it takes a trip
To a place that it don't
Want to be

It's not that you're wrong
It's just as simple as geography

Are you feeling okay?

You called out my name
You ignited this burning flame

The smoke gets in my eyes
Clouds my vision
Diverts attention
Away from all that I have in my life

I keep pushing forward
Always looking back
So I can't seem to
Figure out exactly where I'm at

I think I'm doing okay

You called out my name
You ignited this burning flame
I'm the only one to blame
Yeah, but you called out my name

I'm burning
(Burning!)
Quickly at both ends
Yeah

I think about the summertime
When all was well
And I was fine
But now I feel it
Now I feel

There's a bridge closed off
Between our homes
No detours, no open roads
For me
Set me free!

You called out my name
You ignited this burning flame
I'm the only one to blame
Yeah, but you called out my name
Track Name: On to You
Sugar
I ain’t letting you go
There’s a thing or two
I think that you should know

That I won’t give up that easily
Yeah, I am onto you

Sugar
I know the game you play
Coach put me in
Consternation
Gray

Talk is cheap
But silence is cheaper
Your absence is sharp
It cuts these wounds deeper

I’m perspicacious
You seemed flirtatious
Being with you gave me a strange sensation
I’m diving in the deep-end
I guess it all just depends
On if
And when
I sink or swim

So I hold my breath
Pray that I’m not second best

But I won’t give up
That easily
Yeah I am onto you
Track Name: Rival Schools
Yeah, I get it
You want to revolt or something
Tell me to vote for someone
Tell me that change has to come fast

But what are we really doing?
What do you expect to get out of
Whining and throwing trash?

It’s hitting the fan
Jump on the bandwagon
And convince yourself you’re right
When a tiger roars
A raincloud forms
And it storms
And we end up losing sight
End up losing sight

Yeah, I get it
You want to protest or something
You want to invest in something
Bigger than yourself

But this brand loyalty
Doesn’t pay royalties
To those who’ve lost
It pays only to those who’ve (won)

One side’s building a wall
Saying things that appall
But they don’t care
They’ve convinced themselves they’re right

The other’s blocking the path
Shattered coffee shop glass
They don’t care
Yeah, I think they’re losing sight

It feels like we’re all playing
For different teams
At rival schools
The cheerleaders they dance in unison
Like molecules
The marching band
Isn’t playing very well
But it’s anyone’s game
I wonder if you feel the same

I won’t go down without a fight
I’d do anything to win tonight
Come on darling
I see the whites
Of your eyes

We won’t go down without a fight
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose tonight
Come on darling
I see the whites
Of your eyes

Hypocritical
Do you even hear what you’re saying?
Care about the people you’re blaming?
When really it comes from within yourself

Roll back the progress we were making
Strip us down til we’re fuckin’ naked
Begging you for treats as we learn to ignore

The casualties and minorities
Clearly they go against what you think is right
We should be flocking together
Different birds different feathers
Instead we’re clashing
Bashing everything in our sight

It feels like we’re all playing
For different teams
At rival schools
The cheerleaders they dance in unison
Like molecules
The marching band
Isn’t playing very well
But it’s anyone’s game
I wonder if you feel the same

I won’t go down without a fight
I’d do anything to win tonight
Come on darling
I see the whites
Of your eyes

We won’t go down without a fight
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose tonight
Come on darling
I see the whites
Of your eyes
Track Name: Punk Rock Love Song
I found you back when I was 16 years old
Dumb and young but I was feeling rather bold
Slid on our skates and then we slid out into the cold
Our story one that no one could’ve foretold

From that point on
Our love was up and down and back and forth
From afar
Reminiscent of a rollercoaster
All that turbulence a side-effect of getting older
Just two adolescents growing alongside each other

My darling, my flower
You’re the only one with power over me
Guess I’m not over you
There’s still so much left for us to do
We could roam the streets of Londontown
Maybe make a few bucks
We’ll never settle down
I guess I’m not over you
Hope you’re not over me
Our existences they resonate so harmoniously

Seven years later
But my heart still beats the same way
However since we split it’s off
Need to defibrillate
I’m feeling empty like a conference room on Saturday
As long as I’m up here I’m fucking helpless anyway

My darling, my flower
You’re the only one with power over me
Guess I’m not over you
There’s still so much left for us to do
We could get high in Hawaii
Down on the beach
Hold hands, watch the sun set under the sea
I guess I’m not over you
Hope you’re not over me
Our existences they resonate so harmoniously

I keep on thinking
I’ll see you in other people
But I don’t
I end up seeing deeper inside of my own head
The feelings sink in
They fade away quicker than you might think
I’m longing for a moment
Just longing for a moment

I’m sick of double dealing
It just feels more like stealing
Your love is so appealing
One hit will get me reeling
Out of control

My darling, my flower
You’re the only one with power over me
Guess I’m not over you
There’s still so much left for us to do
My darling, my flower
You’re the only one with power over me
Guess I’m not over you
There’s still so much left for us to do
