Track Name: someone this season
someone this season is ready for playing their part
yeah, i know you've got reasons
she's saving yourself from your heart
but she doesn't even know where to start
someone is hoping to finally be awoken
and it's hard
but noone said it was easy
she's saving yourself from your heart
but she doesn't even know where to start
look,
it's a game
noone knows how to play
it's a scaffold in the road
on the way to promised land
and you're trying
oh but it's tiring
Track Name: she said no
she worked in strange places
like i thought she would
she worked in strange places
'round the neighborhood
asked her to let it happen
like she used to long ago
she said no, no, no
she said no
see so many faces
as i walk on through
see so many faces
but i don't see you
you were always so fucking happy
and you made me happy too
now i'm blue, blue, blue
i'm so blue
and where are you?
you're nowhere to be found
Track Name: in the sun
i, i tore it up again
i'm tied by old mistakes i've made i cannot
move forward
and time
it's always standing still
no change for memories
can't stay awake
such a coward
feel so easy in the sun
feel so happy now you're gone
for the best, all the reasons were unspoken
feel so easy in the sun
feel so happy now you're gone
after all, it was just another
i'm dumb, i think i'd made more sense
if i did anything but all i do is just talking
aloud
to careless audiences
they've never gave a shit 'bout me i know
but that's okay
feel so easy in the sun
feel so happy now you're gone
all the best, other reasons were unspoken
feel so easy in the sun
feel so happy now you're gone
after all, it was just another token
feel so easy in the sun
Track Name: pessimism disco
seems like nothing can change me
seems like nothing can be
in any way different
from what it already is

seems like nothing can change you
seems like you'll never be free
from all the dumb shit within you
you'll be your own enemy
Track Name: ain't nothing
hate my job and i hate my life and
i look inside hoping i will find
but there ain't nothing
oh, there ain't nothing
hate my friends and i hate myself
but i look outside and there's noone else
but it ain't nothing
that there ain't nothing
Track Name: know
sun is gonna go
then we all fall down
you say you learned to fly, well, you'd better fly now
i don't know
just what she said
i don't know
but it hurts so bad
sun is gonna go
than it all falls down
you say you learned to fly, well, you'd better fly now
i don't know
just what she said
i don't know
but it hurts so bad
we are getting close
why don't you really see
we are getting close to the things in my dreams
i don't know
just what she said
i don't know
but it hurts so bad
Track Name: hourglass
i'm stuck in an afternoon
sun's up but the sun's too soon
i'm waiting for you to call
and drag me right out the door
but nothing comes out alright
it seems there's no end in sight
they're asking me "how, what for?"
i just cannot take much more
but it's alright
if you want me to i'll be there
and if not, if you want me to, i won't
we had fun with the hours
that we deemed all to be ours
but the world is upside down, like an hourglass
go out on the road again
go out just to see your friends
they've never believed in you
and you never gave a shit about them, too
we will never understand
that we cannot safely land
we will never have a clue
and we'll never tell you the truth
but it's alright
if you want me to i'll be there
and if not, if you want me to, i won't
we had fun with the hours
that we deemed all to be ours
but the world is upside down, like an hourglass
Track Name: virgin blues
everybody's having fun but me
what else can i say
everybody's getting laid but me
and it's always been that way
all i want is little company
i can never even talk to you
but i can never even talk to you
everybody's getting high but me
'cause i'm too afraid
everybody's feeling great but me
or else they are getting paid
all i want is little company
i can never even talk to you
but i can never even talk to you
'cause i've been fucked so long
by some stupid shit
i've been fucked up so
i just don't even try to seem alive anymore
everybody's having fun but me
what else i can say
everybody's getting laid but me
they also are getting paid
all i want is little company
i can never even talk to you
but i can never even talk to you
'cause i've been fucked so long
by some stupid shit
i've been fucked up so
i just don't even try to seem alive anymore
i just don't even try to seem alive anymore

i wish i could talk to you
the only thing that comes out
is my own stupidity
i wish i could talk to you
but i'm afraid you'll find out
that i'm fake and derivative
Track Name: molly's at the laundromat
molly's at the laundromat
trying to forget her dad
things were so much better then
he'd beat her and he'd leave her for dead, again
and i don't care 'bout people who burn their bridges
i remember watching these things on simpsons
pulling on her hair i got thirty stitches
nothing ever works out right
her sister and her cousin dan
naked in her pool again
her mother's on the telephone
tells her to take care of it all, it all
and i don't care 'bout people who burn their bridges
i remember watching these things on simpsons
pulling on her hair i got thirty stitches
nothing ever works out right
nothing ever works out right
when you're around
he wants more
another ticket at the door
and what's there
another cross for you to bear
he wants more
another road for you to crawl on
and what's fair?
at least you're living your life well
Track Name: problem with time
somebody's asking
they're telling me something
but it's you
who i see
i was such a dumb kid
my mind could not fit
but you
you saved me
but i've got a problem with time
and every ocean i try
becomes a dry dry lake
it's something i fake
something i fake
something i fake
i'm gonna get off my back and
gonna try and do something
so you
you will see
you'll say "it's cool, boy
but you're such a fool boy
it's you
who needs me, and
i've got a problem with time
and every mountain i climb
turns into desert sand
and it's just where i stand
just where i stand
just where i stand"

please call me now
'cause i'm so lonely
Track Name: out there
the roars and rows and things they boast
are lacking in this scene
i wouldn't mind to be up there
with all the things you're seeing
with all the blind policemen,
folks are driving in between
out there
the roads and doors,
a dream that goes
before it's really seen
i wouldn't mind to live up there
with people that you're being
and all your lies are speechless ghosts
they're crying in the street
out there
Track Name: sorry song
how i've prayed and how i tried
salty water in my eye
i'm sorry
too afraid so don't get high
you say i'll never get it right
i'm sorry
tired of chasing what ain't mine
wait for you - well i've got time
don't hurry
never happy, never fine
crossing every single line
you're falling
scary pictures in your mind
troubled waters, darkening sky
and it's growing
come to see me live the lie
or get it over with tonight
it's so cold here
inside somebody else's skin
inside somebody else's skin
inside somebody else's skin
inside somebody else's skin
Track Name: we are the ones
we are the ones
who can look like they're dying
but we're also the ones who can
walk this abandoned path
we are the ones
who will kill ourselves trying
but we also can never ever ever look back
why don't you please save me
from this feeling i have
why don't you please save me
from this feeling i have
i dream you'll come through this door
and then you'll save me 'cause you've got the knack
why don't you please save me
from this feeling i have
we are the ones
that can talk like they're crazy
but we're also the ones who can never ever call back
we are the ones
and we think we're amazing
but we also can hate ourselves for the things we lack
Track Name: god bless
god bless your father
he was such an asshole
but he's left
and nobody is sad
god bless your mother
she gave you birth then left you for
dead but it's nobody's fault
she said "kid it's nobody's fault"
and if you think you have a chance
then you're already beat
give yourself another glance
in the mirror
you'll see
or just look at me
just look at me
god bless the nature
and all these conversations
'bout things you know
nothing about
god bless your family
oh why oh why they can't just let you be
all alone in the crowd
and if you think you have a chance
then you're already beat
give yourself another glance
in the mirror
you'll see
or just look at me
just look at me
Track Name: birthday blues
we used to be real good friends, babe
but now we don't even talk
i tried to fix that but instead
i had to just take a walk
but today is such a special day
and i wanted just to say
happy happy birthday
i hope it's not your last
happy happy birthday
you're growing up real fast
Track Name: a song about romance
hey man if that's gonna be okay
i would like you to come down and play
a song about romance
and if you've got none
maybe i could write one,
i don't care, i just wanna have fun
with a song about romance
we can write what we're seeing
we can fight what we're being
in this town
hey man this song it's going pretty great
i just wish it had a little bit more cowbell
this song about romance
oh yeah that sounds pretty tight
i'm sure my girl will finally see the light
'cause this song's about romance
we can write what we're seeing
we can fight what we're being in this town
we can write what we're seeing
but we can't fight what we're being
in this town
Track Name: tree song
your parents will find a way
to make you forget your dreams
they'll maybe regret their ways
but then it will be too late
you were comfortable, baby
you're not used to work now
but you were thinking, just maybe
it's all gonna work out
oh please bury me
under this old tree
i'm not gonna be the things
i've always thought i'll be
i will just sleep
and weep
and dream
and think
i won't try so hard
to do anything
i never can tell you things
that you really wanna hear
i talk about some dumb shit
and then we just go to sleep
but we're comfortable, baby
we should've just broke up
but then we're thinking,
just maybe it's all gonna work out
oh please bury me
under this old tree
i'm not gonna be the things
i've always thought i'll be
i will just weep
and sleep
and dream
and think
i won't try so hard
to do anything at all
you're gonna be famous
you're gonna sell pictures
you're gonna draw crowds in
with really really big shows
and i will just stay here
and we will talk on the phone
about some old stuff
that we had talked before
or you can just bury me
under this old tree
i'm not gonna be the things
i've always thought i'll be
i will just weep
and sleep
and dream
and think
i won't try so hard
to do anything at all
to be anything at all
