Ten times around the same old bush Are you insecure of how it looks Do you swear they’ll ridicule us In all of the textbooks The sacred truth The damning lore Impossible to ignore Self-mythologized Self-actualized Are you starting to read the signs Too busy writing yourself An end of days reprise Red flags so guaranteed As far as the eye can see The sacred truth The damning lore Impossible to ignore I am not a loose cannon I’m a smoking gun I’m fine Do you wanna be that guy And I crashed my bike again last night In a dream where you and me Were on the same team I haven’t felt like this in years I’m living in fear again

Choosie 02:27
Blinded by the backlight full body chills that numb my toes romantic feelings aside tell me how this ends cuz I've got to know and I'm confused about where we stand if I can't be your girl could I at least be your man and if I come on too strong would you kick my ass would you break my arm would you at least sign my cast no no no no no don't make this bad for me I'm past veiled and polite take me to the gym teach me how to shoot guns or chain me up out back at night if I'm just another dog loyal to being shunned

Wave Emoji 02:55
If there's one thing that I've learned from the beach it's that you're better in retrospect or when you're not in reach staring out at the boring sea I felt the wave wash over me it's an ageless motif that goes back centuries highest marks for the absentee I was inundated no I couldn't make you laugh I was inundated oh no ready to drown or face the dull unknown are you even proud of your artistic life? will you look back in a year over beers for your tears in disgust at the songs that you'll write? well it was 6-6-6 before I begged for it to stop now it's 7-7-7 I've hit the jackpot alright but that doesn't mean those feelings can't creep up on a wednesday night

One-track mind with no street smarts another existential crisis would probably get the job done you're not hopeless but I think you've done enough can't you see that you're a goddamn mess, man? you've gotta pick yourself up cuz we've all got a lot on our plate despite how gross and bad your shitty life can taste you've gotta take a little time and let it go to waste see I used to think it was the end of days but it's been a little while since I've felt that way we've all got a lot on our plate what if I said to you that I knew what you were going through? you're losing sleep because your nerves keep you up at night you're free to be lonely if you like because I spent a year of my life feeling repressed I spent the next year alone fucking depressed and now I'm finding ways to vent to you and I'm knocking out that list of things I have to do fucking finally despite how gross and bad your shitty life can taste you've gotta take a little time and let it go to waste see I used to think it was the end of days but it's been a little while since I've felt that way yeah it's been a little while since I've felt that way and so you fucked it up once let's be frank– you know you're gonna make mistakes no matter what and sure you knew better but that's part of growing up

One Cusp 02:03
from one cusp to another I think I've had enough I'm not your little brother when will they hold on high the examples I set the principles I live by so thanks to my slacker role models now my competitive gleam makes me feel horrible from one cusp to an earth sign hey patient wise guy I don't have the time to sit and wait what if they never appreciate the chances I take but I don't know just how you do it you say I'll learn but that's counterintuitive
6.
Melvin 02:59
you were tall when we first met now you've got me 'round your neck you said, "It's cool and I don't mind" but we both knew that things weren't fine It's not that hard to be so unkind when you put your faith in other guys Melvin, to you god bless Melvin, I'm wishing you the best I'll be fine I'll be fine
7.
If I were smarter not stubborn or bruised I would have made my peace and given up on you you've really gotta spell it out for me, man cuz I'm used to getting what I want and assuming that I can but it wasn't part of the plan for this to get so carried away and get so out of hand
8.
Golden Bones 02:14
I don't like hugging you cuz I don't like touching you it just reminds me that you're real and that there's nothing I can do but no hard feelings no harm done what's the point if it's not fun? you don't take the jump and not risk the fall Alex I am nothing after all throw these golden bones against the wall cuz I'm sure that I'm not worth it measure these gold bones against the wall beacuse we both know that I'm not worth it
9.
You don't know any better and I guess you could blame them with their antiquated politics based on an outdated model for reference and I don't wanna be the one that says "hey you're doing this all wrong" but god forbid if the people wanna sing along so good luck getting under my skin cuz I've been counting all my losses I think it's time I got a win cuz I'm making a pact and I'm writing it all down cuz even if it's nothing I've learned it could matter somehow I don't expect you to care but I've got a good feeling that this is my year a whole year of good hair so you think you're smart with your tapping and you swear that you'll go far but man I heard all that same shit in the back of your car in 2006 and I know that you think that I'm just a fool and my only strength is playing into what's cool but if I die a martyr I couldn't have worked harder
10.
I apologize for that if you know what I mean sometimes I revert back into the old me back when I was 17 and I was first cutting my teeth in this fucked up scene you know it's crazy just how quickly time can pass we lose sight of the things we want so super fast I never thought I'd feel this incomplete I'm 22 and obsolete so I did what humans do I went looking for love I found a person, some higher power, and a few chemicals god I hope that this ends well but for now at least I'm happy happy in hell I'm happy in hell you make me happy in hell

The List 02:48
Coffee in a mason jar up too early planning ahead too far for more patience and a new guitar simple goals that's all they ever are the list of things that I wanna accomplish this year gotta polish the glass and make it crystal clear more free time and some better lights maybe someday even do something kinda right or somehow even make somebody proud I don't care if it's just myself the list of things that I wanna accomplish this year gotta take all the dread and make it dissapear I don't want to lose touch with my angry balled up fists I just want to comb my hair and make some sense out of all this shit I don't want to trade 200 bpm for 130 I just want to be a little more sexy and kinda happy
12.
Buddy Icon 04:11
Tell me something about your kind something that I couldn't find just from staring at your buddy icon all night I think Victoria said it right these kinds of things they just take time but in a year or two I promise I'll take care of you you were driving home way past your prime when you said that I could keep your organs if you died and although the context nearly blew my mind the sentiment alone enough to make me cry sure you're unstable but you know damn right that's just how bad I wanna make you mine so answer me one thing I hope it's not too much to ask but would you have me and could I be yours until this feeling's passed so answer me one thing I know you hate it when I ask but if you're unhappy and you don't want me could you let me down easy

Scratch your head scratch your head with my back foot I'm gonna scratch your head scratch your head scratch your head with my back foot I'm gonna scratch your head we're wrestling with our claws out get whipped get bit check it check it get whipped get your neck bit get whipped get your neck bit check it check it I'm distracted look at this rope look at this rope it's just a rope look at this rope it's just a rope but it's fuzzy on the end tho bounce, roll, check this tunnel bounce, roll, check this tunnel man, whatev, time to chill
14.
I've got dishes to wash I've got mouths to feed I've got time I need to kill but I can't delegate my attention to anything but the surface tension I'm stuck here with the worst intentions a living hell in the third dimension I've never punched anyone but I'm starting to think it could be fun I've got people to loathe I spend my nights alone all the time I want to kill but I can't delegate my attention to anything but the surface tension I'm stuck here with the worst intentions a living hell in the third dimension I've never punched anyone but I'm starting to think it could be fun
15.
god help me if what I'm feeling right now's true cuz I'm totally buggin' and I don't even know you but I know you're cursed by the thought that you'll never have a boyfriend and after four nights of talking you say you're feeling like your life could end again well I don't think that this relationship is insignificant I being of sound mind and body could advise that you might need somebody more than you realize cuz you can't go on feeling so doomed like you're not good at anything cuz we both know that's not true you're sick at everything I think I read that somewhere once I swear I can relate if you don't wanna talk about the way you were brought up the shitty things that keep you up at night or if you're embarrassed by how often you cry and I hate to think that I could admit that but I really want you to call me back just call me back before I dye my hair black

Hide N Seek 00:42
Hide n seek in the park yeah! hide n seek in the park yeah! hide n seek in the park yeah! I'm coming to find you! I'll count to thirty and I promise I'll keep my eyes shut! I'll count to thirty and I promise I'll keep my eyes shut! ready or not here I come! ready or not here I come! ready or not here I come! I'm going to find you!
18.
I tried going out to ease my mind to forget the things I always think about but I sat alone while everyone had fun I couldn't get over all the stupid things I'd done so I got high and I went home and I fell down and wrote your name on the kitchen floor I wish it didn't have to be like this I wish that there was something more
