Track Name: Stairs
I watched you climb those stairs for an hour
Nowhere left to go so I followed you
I was cramped and closed
And awkward stares and finger pointing
Good thing our rooms weren’t adjoining
Because it’s already getting to late for these chest pains

Well I burned my tongue on the coffee
And it was only 10:30
But I already wanted to get some sleep
But it’s pretty hard to go to bed
When it’s filled with you that you’ve never met and you just want them to leave

So I guess that I was your problems
Why’d you have to go and solve them
Did it matter anyway
Because just last week it was changing
I was up all night and my mind was racing with the thought that someday it might be the same

But you said it was up to me to make this a good memory
As we sat beneath that tree that day
But you and your bipolarity had just started to get to me
Even though I was used to it by now
Track Name: New Song 2
Who needs best friends
When they all just turn out to be illusions
Cause if I could go back to that night I probably would say what was on my mind

But my life has got so much better without you
And if I ever see you again
I’m afraid of what I might do

People plagiarize emotions just to say that they’re alive
I couldn’t fake this if I tried
But I’ll live happily forever out the rest of my life in my mind

But my life has got so much better without you
And if I ever see you again
I’m afraid of what I might do
Track Name: Unfortunately Fortunate
Sometimes I feel like I just want to die and I don’t even know why
I’ve got glass for teeth that cracks when we meet

But you’re falling again, and I’m falling like fall
Unfortunately fortunate, you’re flawlessly flawed

Another night, another night
Drive in circles to make it last
I did a shitty job of sewing this back together again
And the seams can’t take it much longer anymore

But you’re falling again, and I’m falling like fall
Unfortunately fortunate, you’re flawlessly flawed

I wrote her a song
But I wrote it all wrong
Tangled fingers and chords
Slipped up words in the verse
A young and tired face
Facing futures past
Miss the pavement as you step

Your body can sleep but your head’s awake
Do you want to come over now
Yeah I guess
I haven’t got that much let to guess about
I think I finally understand why the ground is so jealous of the sky
And the only thing I ask is a simple why
Track Name: I Have A New Song
I dreamt of being alone
No I don’t want to be alone
I need somebody by my side
And it’s you I have in my eye
Back when I was 15
I would wear my old ripped jeans
I didn’t buy them I would cut
For now reason just because
I was boring and naive
I took you to the movies
And that was the biggest type of night
Correct me if I am not right
When drama wasn’t on tv
It was a day to day routine
And we would blend into the scene
I could blend into everything

And I would grow my hair out long
And reference it into a song
And I would listen to The Cure
The disease that they once were
And then you would forget to say goodnight
I wonder if you are just right
But then you’d smile back at me
And I would really finally see

I would wait for you if you would wait for me
I’ll sit outside and freeze my ass off just to see you again
I just want to see your face again

I wonder if I am a joke
Your sarcasm’s gone for broke
My record needle just won’t play
I think I made new friends today
I abuse caffeine like it’s cocaine
I don’t remember that girl’s name
I don’t remember that girl’s name
I don’t remember anything

I would wait for you if you would wait for me
I’ll sit outside and freeze my ass off just to see you again
I just want to see your face again
Track Name: Little Suicides
I thought you were mad at me
For once you thought I was mad at you
Isn't that something new
Dragging circles on the ground
I have no patience for when he's around

Little suicides
Keep you in my mind

Cracked spots on the bleeding floor
I walk out the old wooden door
I don't know where I am
Send your friends down to check on you
But I don't think I need them to
Who gives a shit about me

Little suicides
Keep you in my mind
Little suicides
Keep you occupied
Track Name: Tattoo
Sleep, don’t whisper
Scrawl your name across my chest
I don’t feel like it again
Your tattoos bleed and fade with age
I don’t know what’s left to say

If you turn away
I’m afraid you’ll never turn back again
All my strings are out of tune
But I’ll snap back, start anew

Drag my fingers across your skin
Let the sun creep in through the window panes
I could sleep all day with you
All the colors, the reds, the greens, and the blues

If you turn away
I’m afraid you’ll never turn back again
All my strings are out of tune
But I’ll snap back, start anew

There’s a ghost in my head
Tells me all the things you said
Hauntingly in my bad dreams
It won’t leave me alone

If you turn away
I’m afraid you’ll never turn back again
All my strings are out of tune
But I’ll snap back, start anew
Track Name: Playstation
My best friend is my Playstation
And I can’t deny how alone I feel tonight
I get home after work
My boss is such a fucking jerk
I go to sleep cause my head hurts

But she is at the bar again
And she is out with my best friends

Well I don’t know if I can even do anything right
I try so hard to be alright
I’m stuck on some mistake
That I didn’t even really make
You take the blame you goddamn fake

But I don’t ever want to see your face again
And if I see you I won’t pretend

I go on walking away
I do whatever I can say
I do what I can to forget you
Cause I think I’ll be alright
Cause I trust my insides
And I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know
I know I’ll do better than you
I’ll do better than you
I’ll do better than you
I can do better than you
Track Name: Grad Field
Every party we would go to
You’d always arrive 15 minutes late
Just to act like you came alone
So your plan worked
Now what?
You put flowers on my car

Lightning field and wet grass we would run
And the rain it fell upon us
The hail came down like boulders
I had the weight of the world on my shoulders
You would follow me home

I want coffee, I want tea
I want coffee, I want tea
I want coffee, I want tea
I don’t want to go to sleep

You get your hands in everything
Track Name: Green
I’m not the only one that you had gave up on
Coffee eyes are staining black again
But now I’m always moving forwards
I was so stuck in reverse

But you know we are flowing just like the ocean
With our emotions

The only person I hate more than you is me
If you think I’m cynical just you wait and see
I’ll blow the roof of this place
And now I feel so lost in outer space.

But you know we are flowing just like the ocean
With our emotions
Track Name: Cerulean
I awoke from my rest
Snow covered hills and your blue dress
Called you on the phone
Couldn’t tell if you were there or really all alone
So I drive to your house
No where to park, so I walk to your door
Ring the bell, no one’s there and I can tell

But this is not the last, the first time, that I will be the last to know

So all is well, I can taste the grass and hear the smells
But I was a good guy and you are too good of a girl
The house it creaks, moves under my feet
Like it doesn’t want to house me
My favorite time of year is when you weren’t so near
And I was on the ground

But this is not the last, the first time, that I will be the last to know

But my reasons are your excuse
And I remember yours
Crying on the drive home
I hid under my shirt
But at least I feel alive
All I can do is try
All I can do is try
All I can do is try
Track Name: Simone
I don’t really know how you think you know me but you don’t at all
So rip out your eyes and just rip out your teeth
Because the only thing that you could ever really be is a scene or an act
You’re full of shit and that is that
I don’t care, no I don’t
I’ll sit by and watch you just choke on the dirt in your throat
I know I’m kind of visceral but I just think you’re missing the point
An introvert misogynist
No this is not a part of this
Even you think I’ll blend into the abyss of your illusions
I’m probably just rambling but you are just scrambling for an act
Or some way to put a label on that
It’s all just too much
It’s all just too much

I think you’re a lie
But who doesn’t have to lie just to get by in the world
It’s okay I forgive you in this world
It’s okay I forgive you this time

I should just shut up and maybe I should just give up
Because maybe I’m a big fuck up and maybe I’m just out of luck right now
I can’t read your face, it’s probably from some other space
It’s like a book I can’t replace
It’s like the look that you gave me that night
It’s alright
The mystery’s the fun part
Who really wants to find out at all?
I could write another song or I could write a few more songs
But we would just never really ever kind of get along
Back a couple of years I probably still had some fears of being told what I can and can’t do
But it never came from you
And I’ll just keep on doing it just over and over and over and over and over and over no
I shouldn’t do it
I shouldn’t do it
I shouldn’t do it
But I think I will
