about

Thank you to everybody who helped this come together - Alexander, Liam, RJ, Sean, Cam, Paul, Furnas, Mimi, and anybody who drunkenly said something to me that I wrote down in a small yellow notebook and later stole for a song title.

Track Name: Coffee & Orange Juice
I wear your hickeys like an accessory
& I'd adore myself within your teeth
if I could

I'm fine just drinking my coffee & orange juice

Waking up in the morning is easier
when you sleep next to something that resembles a firework

You can try, you can try, you can try, you can try
but know it might not work

It feels good to be back home
but only when it snows

When I asked you to buy me the store
you said you'd steal me a postcard at best
I was on the floor

What is there for me to do right here?
(you could try, you could try, you could try, you could try)
Track Name: Trying
And now I got no one
to tell me I'm a joke
And now I got no one
to hate me when I smoke

Hope you made some friends
Hope you're back again
Nice & safe & warm

Trying, I'm trying, I'm trying today

And now I got no one
to tell me I'm a joke
And now I got no one
to hate me when I smoke

Hope you made some friends
Hope you're back again
Life's unsafe & warm

Trying, I'm trying, I'm trying today
Track Name: Armies & Tanks
Check my email
oh fuck, it's just Bandsintown and pizza coupons
and Nikki trying to get me to give blood again
[Nikki trying to get me to, Nikki trying to get me to]

Why are there GoPros in the student store?
To document our debt?
Like I feel like a pet no more

Nikki trying to get me to give blood again
I almost passed out the first time
I almost passed out the first time
Like when she says;
'I love you, but...'
'I love you, but...'

When life gives you Lemons,
you PR for some shitty band

& Graveyards hold no comfort anymore
cause everyone in the ground was probably a racist

Except for the children
March - May, 1927

[Nikki trying to get me to]

Kiss my neck
bite my veins
I'm a wreck
you're insane

Kiss my neck
bite my veins
I'm a wreck
It's all the same

I had to get off of the bus early
Cause I was looking at all the people
Moving their heads and shaking their feet
and wondered who broke their hearts
we could all just sit there silently
because, y'know, you can't cry on the bus

No walls to break
no hands to shake
no walls to break
no hands to shake
no walls to break
with armies and tanks
Track Name: Little Plan
I won't mind if you hold my hand
if you don't mind that I sing pretty bad
What do you say to that little plan?
What do you say to that little plan?

'Cause I'm in the bathroom getting high by the sink
& yr sitting on the couch while he's fixing you a drink
I don't want to talk to anybody, that's true
but for some fuckin reason my mouth opens up to you

I won't mind killing all your fears
if you don't mind that I walk pretty weird

'Cause I'm in the bathroom getting high by the sink
Girl, yr sitting on the couch while he's fixing you a drink
I don't want to talk to anybody, that's true
but for some lucky reason my mouth opens up to you
Track Name: Grab The Booze, I'm Gonna Go Put Pants On
I know I told you that was my house
But it wasn't, girl, it wasn't
I know I told you that was my song
But it wasn't, girl, it wasn't

& I drove us way too far
out to the house you thought was mine
& I drove just a little too far
but we both know that's ok

Got a dream
Gonna let ya know
I'm gonna be there at yr favored show
whether you
b'lieve me, I don't know
I don't care, gonna be there, let ya know
I'm all real
& My body falls
running through, all starred-out, on the ball
I don't know
whether you're there
I don't care, 'cause you know I'm gonna go

& I drove just a little too far
to the house that I thought was mine
wasn't there, wasn't how I remembered
Pay a fine, hope you'll find

any day
any way
any hour of any day

Got a dream
Gonna let ya know
I'm gonna be there at yr favored show
whether you
b'lieve me, I don't know
I don't care, gonna be there, let ya know
I'm all real
& My body falls
running through, all starred-out, on the ball
I don't know
whether you're there
I don't care, 'cause you know I'm gonna go

& I talk just a little too much
but that's ok by you
& you talk just a little too much
but that's ok by me
& We both know just a little too much
but that's ok by us
that's how we build
a little place
that's ok by us

And it's real
gotta let you know
I'm gonna be there
Track Name: October
I'm thinking I'm gonna take some time alone
gonna figure it out
& I'll tell you when I come home

"cause I'm thinking you're
gonna beat me to the punch
Gonna say it's for him,
but I know you missed that touch

Almost sober
Born in October
I don't wanna know

If I could get
what I really want

"Cause I'm thinking we
can't last all that long
when the trust is gone
& the trust was gone
when you rode with him home

I'm thinking I'm gonna take some time alone
gonna figure it out
& I'll let you know when I come home

Almost sober
Born in October
I don't wanna know

Almost sober
Born in October
Love's a pile of ropes

Almost sober
Born in October
I am losing hold

Almost sober
Born in October
What do you do alone?

I don't wanna hear it coming down the hall
Track Name: Good For You
I've been impressed by the lack of a mess that you've made
Then again, it's pretty hard to blame someone who stands in the shade

I wanna be good for you

I'm just a point on your list of regrets for this week
You might find out if you took the time to hear me speak

I wanna be good for you
Track Name: No You're Not/No One Knows
Punch me once and shatter all of my bones
Whatever you do, just leave my toes alone
I use them to walk,
not very well - it shows.
Tell me once, and I'll always almost know

Life's enlightening, then completely necessary
Like drinking water then reading "poetry"

& I wanna know people who play good music even when I'm drunk

Stop, check once, turn the lights off, then let's go
lock the doors just in case we don't come home
And 18 rack of Rainier in a row
Dance around, even though we're a little stoned
Give it one shot, then we'll all go home

& I wanna know people who play good music even when I'm drunk
Track Name: Fortunate
Took a walk late last night
After Bowie had died
I was pretty bummed, man
I was feeling sad

But it's a lucky life when I can sit outside & my friends will join
& we'll dance alright

21+ shows, I know a place to go
we can both sing along
I'll get the words wrong

21+ shows, I know a place to go
we can both sing along
I'll get the solos wrong

Took a walk late last night
After Bowie had died
I was pretty bummed, man
I was feeling sad

But it's a lucky life when I can sit outside & my friends will join
& we can dance with wine

21+ shows, I know a place to go
we can both sing along
I'll get the words wrong

21+ shows, I know a place to go
we can both sing along
I'll get the solos wrong
*actually fucks up the solo*
Track Name: S'alright
We can talk all night 'til yr face turns blue
& you'll just look at me and say,
"I love you, don't you love me too?"

S'alright

I'm just trying my best to make
the best with the cards that I got dealt today

S'alright

It's alright by me if you don't sleep too well tonight

I don't wanna talk to anyone else
no, they don't help
I just wanna be all by myself

S'alright

'cause everybody will just complain
& they only care about pictures of themselves that day

S'alright

It's alright by me if you don't sleep too well tonight

You can show off what you wear
But y'know that I just don't care

S'alright
Track Name: Yr Shoulders
Liam, he's pretty dumb ;)
But he sure knows how to have fun
That's why I moved in here
now we're jumping all around
and there's something to cheer tonight

Oh won't you look at me, oh won't you look at me?

There's been 20 weeks of flooding
and 20 weeks of rain,
but it doesn't matter much when we're drinking champaign

Now we're both in my bed
& I can't you out of my head
so I'll scream & kick around
until I make the right sound for you

Oh won't you look at me, oh won't you look at me?

There's been 20 weeks of flooding
and 20 weeks of rain,
but it doesn't matter much when we're drinking champaign
Track Name: Consolation Party
I'm comprised of two different things -
One's a bird, and she sings,
'I'm sad, so sad! But I don't wanna go to bed!'
Cause you miss so much when you sleep all of the time

Is it all that bad?
For me to feel right now

If I think too much, then I won't go to bed
If I think too much, then it's all in my head
If I think too little, then I won't get no sleep
If I think too little, I don't wanna be degreed

Is it all that bad?
For me to feel right now

Slow burn, don't hesitate

I don't want you to stop
& I'm lacing up my shoes
& I think I'm gonna cop
a belittled drink from the fridge
If you don't wanna go, then stop

No more over thinking it
no more limiting myself to 2 vitamins a day
No more making songs and no more taking pictures that I think other people are gonna like
cause they won't anyway
Sometimes
Sometimes it all just
snaps into perspective
