Track Name: Be Ok
It'll be ok, it'll be ok
I'm sure
It'll be ok, it'll be ok
I'm sure
What's the point, what's the point?
I'm bored
It'll be ok, it'll be ok
I'm sure

Are you gonna do it
or are you gonna break?
Am I gonna do it
or do we gotta break?

Talk all night but it don't make no difference to me
My mind's made up
It'll make no difference, just see

It'll be ok, it'll be ok
I'm sure
It'll be ok, it'll be ok
I'm sure
What's the point, what's the point?
I'm bored
It'll be ok, it'll be ok
I'm sure

Are you gonna talk
or do I gotta break
up with the idea of another boy on a skate?

Don't hold back
all your likes
Sometimes I feel like a mute

It'll be ok, it'll be ok
I'm sure
It'll be ok, it'll be ok
I'm sure
It'll be ok, it'll be ok
I'm sure
It'll be ok, it'll be ok
I'm bored

What's the point?
What's the point?
I'm bored, I'm bored, I'm bored, I'm bored

What's the point?
What's the point?
I'm bored, I'm bored, I'm bored, I'm bored

What's the point?
What's the point?
I'm bored,
Track Name: Honest Glo
I was listening
to the words
but they fell too far below
you had an honest glow
x2

You had an honest glow,
You had an honest glow
x2

You had an honest glow
but it was all for show
Track Name: Benevolent
I forgot to check my phone
I'll remember, then I'll come down
All the words and the memories
are the best to bring

I forgot to call you up
I'll remember, then I'll get drunk
Times like these are the best to sing
but the worst to bring

Where did you go?
x5

I forgot to check my phone
I'll remember when I come down
Times like these are best to bring
but the worst to sing

I forgot to call you up
I'll remember when I get drunk
Times like these are the best to bring

Where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
Track Name: Tall Lanky Sad Guy
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I
can see you standing where you hide

You're here
and I'm there
you're here
and I'm there

Collecting all
your sacred tombs
they don't know what
to do with you

When you're here
and I'm there
you're here
and I'm there

I'm bored of sitting here
and talking to the same five
the same five people
the same five people

But you're nowhere near
when I need you, you just disappear
Without a trace
no face
out of trace
and no face

(don't go, don't go don't don't go, don't go)

I checked the room
and opened up
the rest of the book
that's all it took
that's all it took
that's all it took
Track Name: Home
This place isn't how I remember it
All my friends were cooler than the rest
It was nicer and pale green in the chest
but now it's lost and I think that it's a mess

I wish I could go to sleep
maybe then I could keep
all the rest in the womb
all the rest safe in rooms
locked away where no one sleeps
locked away where no one sees
locked away where no one creeps
locked away where no one sees

This place isn't how I remember it
All my friends were cooler than the rest
It was nicer and pale green in the chest
but now it's lost and I think that it's a mess

I wish I could go to sleep
maybe then I could keep
all the rest in the womb
all the rest safe in rooms
locked away where no one sleeps
locked away where no one sees
locked away where no one creeps

Aaaaahhhhhhhhh
Track Name: Break (Tribute to Ease)
I'm over it
I'm over the town I grew up in
again

I'm over you
I'm over the love that you gave to him
Oh well

I could use a break
x4

I'm over it
I'm over the town that I grew up in
again, oh no

I'm over you
I'm over the things that you put me through
Oh, hell
Oh, well
well

I could use a break
x4
Track Name: Sleep By The Phone
I wanted to write
Stand In The Sand
and know that malt does more
than Milton can

Now I'm here
now I'm home
Sit by the fire
and sleep by the phone

I'm not coming home
x3

Will Toledo
writes better songs
and Naked Giants
use more fuzz

Nobody's cruel
when you're unkind
everybody's cooler
in your mind

I'm not coming home
x3

Where did you go?
She's off in Rome
I'm sitting here
wishing I was home
now I'm here, what do I know?
Sit by the fire
and sleep by the phone

I'm not coming home
x7
Track Name: Coral Blue
And the tide came in
and it was mostly coral
blue
with shark fins
circling like little finger nails
that dig in
to what we had left

which wasn't much
