Track Name: Slam
I caught you peaking in my mirror, wondering when I’ll look away. My night of vices has me feeling like I never left yesterday. So take your steps just like the rest but you can find me here. Everything is cool man. You wouldn’t get it, but everything is cool man. I caught you peaking in my mirror, wondering how things got this way. Like when you dreamt that you were falling down forever just yesterday. So save your breath just like rest, but you can find me here. You say you found peace of mind but that’s a lie, I know you’re dying here… but everything is cool man.
Track Name: Best Mistake
Sunday morning, and I feel sorry about the pieces of me that I left at your house. Down on luck, my mind was anxious and you made me face it with your lips on my neck and a taste from the bottle. I’ve got this funny feeling that you’ve got this funny feeling as I watch you dance above me. Wait. You could be my best mistake that I’ve just been dying to make. And when the fireworks faded, I can’t believe I ever contemplated... You’ve got me tired and tied up. You’re my best mistake. Monday morning, a lot less boring when you trace over my tattoos with your finger. We got drunk and I felt stupid but you helped me through it. Goddamn, you’re tearing me apart. I’m not trying to get you off my chest. I’ll let delusion rest in my mind. I’m not trying to get you off my chest; it’s where you lay best in my mind. You’re my best mistake and I finally made it.
Track Name: Trick (So Sweet)
There’s nothing that I hate more than when you call when I’m away. Save me for the perfect rainy day, and I’m out caught in the storm. When all I want to do is be close to you every second that I get. But you’re a trick. You’re a trick so sweet and I never thought that it would bother me. I’ll wave this white flag and surrender myself to the thought of saving face in spite of everyone else and that’s including myself, but I hope that you miss me. Not once. Not twice. Not a second before the third time you had me sleeping on your neighbour’s floor. I’m too drunk. Where’s the light? “To the right of the door.” You said, “Sorry there’s this guy that I’ve been falling for.” And I’m caught off guard, but it’s still no surprise that I’m just another one of your oblivious guys. But you’re a trick. You’re a trick so sweet and I never thought that it would ever bother me. I’m picking up what you’re throwing down. You only care when I’m not there. So I’ll ask you one last time, when I’m home will you be mine? If not then there’s nowhere left to be and I’ll keep hoping you miss me.
Track Name: Freak
Maybe I’m not the one who tries living in a typical life, a typical lie. Maybe I’m not losing my mind. I could be the one that lasts this time. I swear it happened in Portland. It came to me. Fuck what you think is important. Maybe I’m a freak and nobody knows my name. Nobody gets that strange to me is ordinary. So maybe I’m a freak, but you freak me out. I love the feeling when I sleep at night. Distractions running through my mind, but still sometimes I need a place where I can feel alright. I hope that I can last this time. I swear it happened in Portland. Your nightmares came to me without warning. So tell me why it’s so out of the question to be one of a kind. To be someone you like. There’s so much more to me than could ever meet your eyes.
Track Name: Still Weird
I started singing when I understood that I was different from the boys and girls, when life was so simple and we banged our heads to the music on TV. I see in different colours now. Still young, still weird but somehow I found my stride through the wasted years and your wasted lies. I see in different colours now. And as the world turns, you’ve been missing every sign. Running colour blind. And as the world turns, I’ve been gaining peace of mind. Take me by surprise; show me what it feels like. I found a reason to prove. It wouldn’t be the first time caught between your dead eyes. I found a reason to prove it takes a special kind of person to come out of this place with a purpose. What you don’t know is what I can’t show. I won’t explain how I made something from nothing. I’m better than nothing.
Track Name: Stubborn Love
It was the year you wouldn’t admit it, but you wished so hard that things would fall apart on me. Cause I ruined you when I couldn’t quit it. You lost your mind over mine and I gave up. “This cycle is getting old,” you said so. We crossed the line some time ago. Cause tonight your hair falls around your ears and it makes me want to stay. But I’m keeping at a distance for all the decisions that I’ve made to be gone, to stay gone, to be everything that you thought. It’s all I’ve got. It’s been a month and I’ll admit it. I lost your eyes over time and I gave up. Cause nobody likes slipping out the back door but I can’t crawl back to you anymore. We crossed the line some time ago. Nobody likes slipping out the back door, but this is stubborn, yeah this is stubborn love. But tonight your hair falls around your ears and it makes me want to leave. Cause I just can fake tomorrow and live with the someone I might be. So I’m gone, yeah I’m gone, cause I’m everything that you thought. Cause I’m everything that you’re not. It’s all I’ve got.
Track Name: Big Deal
[Verse 1]
It wasn’t quite the story she had hoped for herself
Hers had a different ending but it
Must have been about someone else
There was a time well spent, there was a time well wasted
She never loved him then and it was time to face it

[Chorus]
And she knows, everything will change
Cause one day it was a red striped blouse
And the next a wedding dress
A big deal, high heels tripping over herself
And you know nobody’s impressed

[Verse 2]
Staring into space trying to feel alive
He’s barely out of school already with a dead end nine to five
Shouldn’t he be happy, she’s waiting at home
She keeps on calling, he turns off his phone

[Chorus]
And she knows, everything will change
Cause one day it was a red striped blouse
And the next a wedding dress
A big deal, high heels tripping over herself
And you know nobody’s impressed

[Bridge]
Ever since she read the note on the wall
Saying “Honey, I’ll be leaving tonight”
She’s sleeping with her eyes wide open
Her body trembles with sickly notions
She hopes everything’ll change

[Chorus]
Cause one day it was a red striped blouse
And the next a wedding dress
A big deal, high heels tripping over herself
And you know nobody’s impressed
Track Name: Airhead
Sometimes I can be a fucking airhead. So tie me to your fingertip so I don’t float away. Sometimes I think I’d rather be alive than dead. So tie me to your fingertip. Being lonely is different than being alone, like when you call and nobody picks up the phone. Sometimes it’s nice to get away from the noise. It’s your choice, but I just miss your voice in the morning when nobody’s up. You’re talking loud cause you just don’t give a fuck. Let’s smoke a joint with our coffee and tea. I’m not afraid cause I know that you love me. Crush me girl. Crush my dreams. Show me pain. Show me what gravity means. Pull me down to my knees. Make me real; I’m begging you please.
Track Name: Growing Stale
Lets break this all down and we’ll take a look. Watch you tear a page from another book. I can’t imagine how you found the heart. Watch you convince them who you think you are. Lets break this all down. Keep your silver spoon in your own mouth. Feed your own self-destruction. Keep your silver spoon in your mouth instead of shoving it down my throat. Someone else’s game is your claim to fame. Tell me what it’s like living day-to-day watching all your friends while they grind away. I can remember when you made a sound based on what you felt not on what you found. Can you feel without a body when you’re a carbon copy? It just makes no sense to me and I think we’re at capacity. But don’t you go crying now. There’s something comforting about knowing who I am.
Track Name: The Day That She Left
You’ve got a lot to tell me but it’s nothing that I don’t already know. You’ve got a lot to tell me but I think that you should know… The world’s at a standstill while my life is turning. The people you pay for, they’re still never learning. A simple judgment of character. Should have known that I’d catch up with her, but when I lost that race of course she didn’t even fucking care. You’ve got a lot to tell me but it’s nothing that I don’t already know. We roll the dice with nothing left to show. You’ve got a lot to tell me but I think that you should know the odds are all against you. And normally I just feel punished, but it’s never honest. This lack of distance makes me feel this way. Her disappointment is the world on my shoulders. My own cross to bear, but she’ll never care. A simple judgment of character. Should have known… I swore I’d forget all the nights spent together. The day that she left I will always remember.
Track Name: Turn Me Away
I remember the sound of forgetting everything that made me feel alright. Nails on a chalkboard; my alarm clock. Wake me up from the best dream ever. Cross me off your list of remedies. Is it my birthday already? Everybody out so I can start drinking heavy into this mess. Well, I’m just killing time so I guess I’ll just keep holding it down, but tell me how long it’ll take you to meet me here. I remember the sound of her making me constantly think twice about escaping the only life I knew how to fake. Every little lie is just a twisted kind of role-play. Playing it off like the others not there. Calling it quits and pretending to care. Splitting the cost. Epitomize disinterest. Looks like we’re lost and I can’t bear to witness this fucking mess. Well, I’m just killing time so I guess I’ll just keep holding it down, but tell me how long it’ll take for this shit to hit home. Turn me away. Throw me aside. But how long will it take for this shit to hit home? I remember the sound of forgetting everything that made me feel alright. I remember the sound of her making me constantly think twice. Calculating my next move, but one step behind she sees my true colours. When they’re limited to black and blue, she drops the ball and I’m done acting like I’m not rotting in the palm of her hand. She says she’s got a new boyfriend, sings in some other fucking band. So turn me away. Throw me aside. Feed me one more story where our futures collide. But I’m not the one you were hung up on; a silhouette that’s so far gone. And the years we shared were overdrawn. All that’s left to say is turn me away, throw me aside. Feed me one more story where our futures collide.
Track Name: Goon
What a nice day to make a list of all the things I need to do. My life’s in disarray and I’m beginning to think I might be screwed. What a nice day. I’m all dressed up as if I’ve got somewhere to be. This tie is kind of short and these shoes don’t fit, but there’s no one here to see. I wish time would linger a little longer. I keep paying for all my problems. It’s not working out so well. I could have made the call to walk away, but I chose to run through hell. What a nice day. My girlfriend left me for some other dude. My mother is ashamed and she’s afraid that I might never move.
We’re chasing cigarettes with coffee in the daylight, whisky with coke on the weekend. Everybody knows that we’re alright but we’re pushing our luck tonight. All I remember thinking was, “is anybody still awake?” What a nice day to pay for all my problems. I should have walked away, but I chose to run through hell.
