Track Name: Drink
drink my weight in wine
accomplishment defined
parties make me wanna scream
when is it safe to leave?
body feels like a tomb
coffin and cocoon
if anyone's sober at midnight
last one out get the lights

so it goes
throwing glass in this house of stone
goes to show
muted by your hands on my throat

drink my weight in beer
lets kick it into gear
guess I'd rather not be alone
but someone's gotta help me get home
forget my face in the crowd
can't be upset if it's loud
if anyone's sober at midnight
last one out says goodbye

so it goes
throwing glass in this house of stone
goes to show
muted by your hands on my throat
Track Name: Worms
twenty years in and still your baby's wild
mother although I've grown I'm still the same restless child
but now I don't want to play this part anymore
I'm ditchin' this scene for the one on the opposite shore

maybe they won't talk to me if the party's loud
maybe there isn't much to talk about
I'm running in circles each year on the earth
what if I'm worth as much as the worms in the dirt
Track Name: Babe
I saw the sun in the street and it meant nothing to me
nothing at all
I saw the sun in her hair when she let it fall

I remember the lights of all the colors she likes
up on the wall
I remember sunbeams when the shades are drawn

And if I cease to exist after morning hits
Send her some flowers for me so it won't be wrong
Track Name: Cherry Pit
it's enough to make me miss all the days
I dreamed away
I'm afraid, such a shame

it's enough to get me by and keep me high
every night
living lies killing time

chew me out, like a cherry pit
you were fine, now you're through with it
kill the lights and your out by five
you and I try to die to feel alive

after sunrise heats my softened bones
she takes me home
seeds are sown all alone

body high aside her eyes hurt my head
love is spent
cut the thread glad we met

chew me out, like a cherry pit
you were fine, now you're through with it
kill the lights and your out by five
you and I try to die to feel alive
Track Name: Your Boy
your boy is coming home soon
what have you got to lose
sober up in sunday's grave
we know some things never change

cheap wine and the house of god
you're the sting of the american WASP
do you know what real life means
all the words unheard stuck in our teeth

two decades and you're still young
waiting around til you're twenty one
talking trash about your friends
even though you know how that will end

your boy is my friend too
what the hell's gotten into you
you want to dance to a different beat
although you were born with two left feet

You're coming home real soon
I guess I'll be home too
now and then I read your texts
still haven't responded yet
You're coming home real soon
I'm waiting in my room
Track Name: Master Bedroom Suite
morning's dissolve my faith in the night before
it's a new day so I'm old news to you
you forget me like you forget the sweat in your pores
but I know this is what you choose to do

If that's not what you meant to say
Save it and spare me a sunken sunday

your spell wears off and I'm returned to the earth
you're a fleeting high with an awful comedown
I no longer know if the addiction or withdrawal's worse
but there's no drug like you in this town

If that's not what you meant to say
Save it to tell me another day
Track Name: Stay The Night
I like when you stay the night
cause in the morning your eyes match the sunshine sometimes

rooftops of wicker park
watching the storm roll in when the day gets dark

thought that you'd slip through my hands
like the whole of my life, made with sand

we could switch it up this time
I could be Bonnie and you be Clyde

and when I am left alone
I am not the man I know
I want your spell to never grow cold
and to tell the truth
I'd like to stay the night with you
If it's alright, it's alright with me too
Track Name: This Is Not
sorry for fourteen phone calls
and twenty texts today
but I left my keys in your room
if you're in class I'll wait
maybe I could take a nap
underneath the tree
outside of you're window
could you meet me in my dreams

Can you recall that summer when
I could only think of you
Awake until the morning
the fading days of youth
All the hours you have hidden
buried in the earth
all the hours I've driven now
only adding to the hurt

This is not
I confess
the first time
I liked you best
kiss goodnight
to get me home
all the time
I spent alone

NASA ain't got shit on you
there's comets in your eyes
if we're not two merging galaxies
then I'm just one star in your sky
someone always takes the place
where I thought they'd fit in
But now I'm locked outside the front gate
of her new house of sin


This is not
I confess
the first time
I liked you best
kiss goodnight
to get me home
all the time
I spent alone
Track Name: Sugarcoat
gonna try not to sugarcoat shit
but this is the first time I can admit
that I need you now not in a few weeks
I'm more of a loss than I ever will be

everything you do compels
I'm drawn to you goddamn your spells

Can you recall the winter you said
you'd rather stay warm with me in your bed
I guess it's my fault I caused the decay
sorry I could not pick up the pace

Shame on me, I know you know
I really care, I mean the most

You could not give any less of a shit
But i will still try to reach you like this
I will not fall, no, I will not bail
I'm pinned to the wall but I will not fail

You act like you're hard to get
I'm about fed up with it

Forcing myself to wait a few weeks
I guess I forgot how to pick up my feet
This is my fault I did it myself
I did it without any morsel of help

selfish self destructive mind
one big human waste of time
Track Name: Pipeline 3
bridges to burn, and money to earn
sing about the sand, but never learn to surf

the coast of our years, eroded by tears
beacons burned out, singed and seared

bring back to life, the color of eyes
a boy who could melt, her heart held in ice

to reverse the pain, he calls out her name
voices washed out, by the pounding of waves
