Track Name: Wave Emoji
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
Track Name: Free To Be Lonely
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
Track Name: Naked Naps - Toyota Prius, The Silent Killer
heard your lo-fi love songs on the low end frequencies
wasn't impressed you never meant that much to me
you were coming in and out with the sound
just like the distance that we keep

towel T-shirt on your birthday
hold your head up in a new way
you are leaving and I am staying
doesn't mean anything
I doubt that you are better than me
Track Name: Naked Naps - Honda Civic '99
look at him hanging from the highest branches
while I stood here on steady ground
no problem falling down with my head five feet
seven inches from colored concrete

you were always fascinated with sound
everyone was constantly pouring out

I would hold his hand to the fire
just to see who is more stubborn
I can be the best at the worst things
