Track Name: Goodbye, Evan
Maybe I'll sleep with a thousand men
and when you decide to call me years from now
I'll tell you about everyone
about Neil, David, and three other Evans
but James was the best

the way he'd put his hand on my back
and slide the other into my hair
and when we were finished
leave me trembling face down in the sheets
finding my breath
then we'd sleep silent
in the mess we made

two extinguished cigarettes
in a lonely ashtray
Track Name: Sexy But Not Happy
I don't want a girl who wants to kiss all the boys
I don't want a girl who dies for everything
I don't want a baby black widow
I don't want a girl button-down cookie cutter

the kindest thing I can do is discard unlike the rest
the kindest thing that I can do is see who she is
to look at her once then cut her loose
say, "Attention isn't what you need"
there's no company here only hollow men
but that's not why we came
fevered palms and sickly waves
common closeness is uncommonly cruel these days
Track Name: For Mom
Family vacation circa 2001
that's when all of this got started
that's when you stopped having fun

I couldn't love you more
than the things you hoard
I couldn't love you more than those things

I'm constantly fearful
of leaving you tearful

and now a days you don't try
I think it's safe to say that we've cut ties
I think it's safe to say we don't see eye to eye

I'm constantly fearful
of leaving you tearful
still I've never been to the Grand Canyon
forever climbing up a Blood Mountain
Track Name: Blood Mountain
I get so caught up sometimes
I forget what I'm talking about
no the words that come out of my mouth
they belong to someone else not me
cuz it's not that I don't think you're lovely
it's that I want you to be happy
and I know I can't make you happy

what we want's not the same
but I think that's okay
what we want's not the same
but it's okay

well I always get so caught up in
doing the wrong thing
it's a bad habit that I can't break
I just can't make it escape me

what we want's not the same
but I think that's okay
what we want's not the same
but it's okay
Track Name: Certain Doom
A pedestal sits between
leaving blind spots
and breaks unseen
but baby that's just not me
that pedestal always follows
haunting me as I try to go
chains I never chose

let me in and I'll gain your trust
but that pedestal is blinding and you're no must
cuz my heart and brain don't intermingle
and I'm pretty sure I'm meant to be single

that pedestal- it protects me
things fall apart
old feelings lingering
leaving you with your broken heart
Track Name: Bigger Problems
Drinking from a cup made out of lead
I'm feeling like I'm better off dead
or alone drunk at home
or stoned lying in my bed
blaming my apathy on things like the weather

so I try to occupy my time
by doing things I know that I like
like keeping you close to me
I know it's wrong but it's comforting

I wake up early just to do nothing
plan out my day to accomplish nothing
stay up all night just doing nothing
I've had the time of my life while I've been doing nothing

resistant to all and you're set in your ways
you think what you want and blame it on your age
Track Name: I Was A Teenage Paladin
We fight back and forth but I agree you need therapy
and that Rachel's right you're too smart to ever be happy
but with so much to learn and countless things to try
I'm sure eventually you'll find something that you like

cuz it's taken some time but I like where we are now
and I like that you have your own car now
but with so much to learn and countless things to try
I'm sure eventually you'll find something that you like
Track Name: Blood Hammer
My body's cold
and I feel tired
I want to be alone
so I want to be with you

can I go home with you
to just lay in your bed?
can I go home with you
just to hold your hand?

I don't keep to myself very well

In a single size
with bloodshot eyes
falling asleep
losing my mind
Track Name: Swahili
Today's the day now is the time
if you ask I would reply
but you're shut off so I'm stuck
I'm just repeating repeating

tell me something I don't know
just tell me something

for countless days it's been on my mind
I've weighed the pros and cons at least a hundred times
but you're shut off so I'm stuck
and repeating

cuz I enjoy the days that go by
spent in the company of your kind
but who's to say
that things are better off this way?
Track Name: Buzzbrain
When all you do is write songs
you'll never have a social life
when all you do is what you want
you're never gonna do what's right
I know it's hard to stay calm
when nothing's getting done
and even harder to be productive
when you can't stand the cause

my greatest contribution to the world will be
to stay out of the way
Track Name: 2005
You'd been a fan of my songs since 2005
back when you sat shotgun and all I did was drive
how few tattoos I had back in those days
when we solely existed in that youthful haze
I was naive to think that this would last
now those days they're dead and long gone
buried in the past
and thinking back I'm surprised by how hard I had to try
cuz you'd been a fan of my songs since 2005
I never knew why

Now these days I don't try so hard
I'm doing all the things I want when I want
and thinking back I can't believe I thought that this was the end
but trust me I won't make that same mistake again

I was the idiot but now I'm older
we both grew up and grew apart at the shoulder
and I stayed in while you went outside
cuz I would never give up
I'd rather die
trust me I won't make that same mistake again
Track Name: Hell Hawk
It took two years to open my eyes
and three months away from home for me to realize
that these new guys you surrounded yourself with
they were permanent

I'm confident you don't need me
I'm sure you're better off without my instability
I'm through saying things that I don't mean
cuz you're the best at making yourself unhappy

I'm sure you'd like to pretend that we're still close friends
I don't regret our relationship
we can't take back the things we did
I know you'd like to pretend that we're still close friends
I don't regret our relationship
