Track Name: Death Wish
That's fine if you wanna go home I'll carry you
That's fine if you wanna die I'll bury you
But if you jump out of that window
You'll leave me a lonesome man
That's fine if you wanna be mine I'll marry you

I had a dream it was real obscene, we had a kid
It feels strange when your girlfriend has a death wish
And if you jump out of that window
You'll leave me a single dad
That's fine if you drink my wine, I've had enough

But I don't believe that you will find
Any peace in loss of life
But I can't make you change your mind

That's fine if you wanna screw around, I'll deal with it
If you treat me like your clown I'll act like one
And if you jump out of that window
I guess I would understand
That's fine if you waste my time, I'll carry on
Track Name: Sooner or Later
There ain't no use in holding to me much longer
Who knows when I'll be moving on?
If I can't circulate my blood flows with such languor
Sooner or later I'll be gone

And I'm making this clear
As your fair complexion
Or my faulty conscience
Some day I'm gonna clear out

Now don't go thinking if you only love me better
That it'll somehow change my mind
That kinda logic gonna leave you feeling bitter
There's no need to treat yourself so unkind

And I'm making this clear
As your fair complexion
Or my faulty conscience
Some day I'm gonna clear out
Track Name: Hardcore J-Pop Princess
Hardcore J-pop princess
You got my attention now
OK let's not revel in it
You get everyone's somehow
You beatbox bubblegum melodies
To make my head unwind
You share your lovely delicacies
I wish my house were thine

But I see a side of confidence I can't find in men twice your size
And if you come true the next time I dream you up I will tailor my guise
And make you think that I were fit to date a hardcore J-pop girl.

You set your sights upon me
And talk of stupid things
You fold me elegant origami
I bought you diamond rings
We spent two weeks in Antigua
And drank from paper cups
I ordered you a Margarita
Then I woke up

But I see a side of confidence I can't find in men twice your size
And if you come true the next time I dream you up I will tailor my guise
And make you think that I were fit to date a hardcore J-pop girl.
Track Name: ESL
There are a lot of words that I don't know the definition
So I reduce my speech to smaller verbs and repetition
You'll never convince me
To use a dictionary
I will always count on my own brain
Even if it fails me every day
I'm waking up
I'm warming up to the idea
That I may not believe in what I say
Track Name: Naturally
You walk so casually
You flow so naturally
How can I be that graceful?
How can I be so tasteful?
You make a kid of me
You're the epitome
Of that which is truly
At the heart of beauty
I want to kiss your grounded feet

I stumble on my words
I don't know asdoa iehf aoeihf
How do you so discreetly
Speak so true and so sweetly?
My mind's a little slow
So if you tell me to go
It might take a second
To think through your sentence
I want to rid myself of this

You flood my mind with thoughts
You cover up the drought
With painstaking labor
How can I win your favor?
You stand out in a crowd
I trip and I fall down
This is not what I wished for
Why am I such an eyesore?
I'll never kiss your rosy cheek
Track Name: Let's Share Lovers
Let's share lovers
You can take one, I'll take the other
We can trade off on the weekends
Everyone can still be friends

And if things start to get weird
Then everyone can just disappear

Let's share lovers
You can mine in the covers
I'll take yours out to dinner
We can meet a jealous stranger

And if things start to get weird
Then everyone can just disappear

Let's share lovers
Track Name: Losing My Tan
Oh bloody hell
I'm losing my tan
Oh kill me now
I'm a lesser man
All the color is gone
My beautiful skin tone
And I won't see you again
At least until mid-June

Oh bloody hell
I'm losing my hair
Oh kill me now
I guess I shouldn't care
Every morning I see
A little more of my forehead
And who knows how bad it will be
Come next June

Oh bloody hell
I'm losing my mind
Oh kill me now
I'm a different kind
My spaceship's coming
I feel the signals in my brain
And if you watch you'll see me on the 6 o'clock news
Yeah if you watch you'll see me on the 6 o'clock news
Track Name: You Don't
You don't own up to your mistakes
You wait for things to fall in place
You don't
You don't

You sing in key but not on beat
You let your head hang by your feet
You don't
You don't

You don't love me, you never did
You cut me out, you ran and hid
You don't
You don't
Track Name: Short Hop
I've been laughing at
All the things I've done
To make you cry
We are little kids
No matter how old
We feel when we die

All my bags were packed
When I left you at
The terminal
I was running from
Everything I had done
To make you ill
Track Name: Never Got Old
Oh I thought it would get old
I was sure it would get old
But it never got old
You
You never got old

I was lying in depression
When you popped that awful question
In the hall
What was it that I tried to say?
I forgot what was wrong
But as the dust had settled
You were long gone

It was me at first that doubted
I felt angry, I was crowded
In the hall
I never got to get away
Now I'm walking small
And wish I never got away at all

Cause I thought it would get old
I was sure it would get old
But it never got old
You
You never got old

Oh I thought it would get old
I was sure it would get old
But it never got old
Track Name: Savings Bond
I'm cashing your savings bonds
Cashing your savings bonds
I'm gonna buy me a truck
When I cash in your savings bonds
Gonna drive that truck around
Gonna run it into the ground
When I cash in your savings bonds
Gonna ride that truck around

I was saving for you
But I had a change of heart
I'm still thinking of you
I just want a new car

So I'm cashing your savings bonds
Cashing your savings bonds
I'm gonna buy a guitar
When I cash in your savings bonds
Gonna play that guitar all day
Make it go real out of tune
When I cash in your savings bonds
I'll play my guitar in my room

I was saving for you
But I had a change of heart
I'm still thinking of you
I just want a new guitar

So I'm cashing your savings bonds
Cashing your savings bonds
I'm gonna buy some cigarettes
When I cash in your savings bonds
Gonna smoke five packs a day
Feel the nicotine in my lungs
When I cash in your savings bonds
Gonna smoke 'til the cancer comes

I was saving for you
But I had a change of heart
I'm still thinking of you
I just want some new cigars
Track Name: I Didn't Cry
I can do what I put my mind to
Keep a promise if I want to
But I didn't cry til I met you
No I didn't cry til I met you

If you would sneeze I would say "bless you"
Tell a lie til it came true
Do everything I thought I outgrew
But I didn't cry til I met you
No I didn't cry til I met you

If you asked I would tie your shoe
Bring you flowers when you feel blue
Remember to say please and thank you
But I didn't cry til I met you
No I didn't cry til I met you
Track Name: Hugs for Charity
If I'm alive I wait for you
In an old nutshell
If I'm alive I look for you
When I'm feeling well
You know it's kind of funny
When I'm giving hugs for charity
And they all decline
If I'm alive I starve for you
In the grocery line

When I am down I think of you
Cause I love your ways
When there's a frown I rest on you
In the red sun's rays
I took a little bus ride
To the corner of the city
And I emptied my brains
If I'm alive I've hugs for you
To keep us sane
Track Name: Two Forms
What is this? What a mess
I confess, I can't dress
Dress myself, I need help
Pull my leg, tighten my belt
I started drinking in the afternoon
I was wheeling, you were dealing
I hit up every single bar and saloon
In the evening, I was dreaming
And now I can't remember your name

Can I have one more glass?
May I see two forms of ID?

Where the hell have you been?
I can smell tonic and gin
In your mouth, spit it out
You're in deep trouble now
I never meant to get out of line
On a bender, oh bartender
How can I make it up this time
To you honey, buy you dinner?
And I swear I'll never drink again

Can I have one more glass?
May I see two forms of ID?
Track Name: Mass Collide
This is how I start
In a parking lot
Face down in the dirt
This is how I came
Fill myself with pain
Swerve from the right lane
Then I hit my head
Then my head swelled red
It's what the doctor said
Never felt before
The feelings you adore
Man my jaw is sore
Man my jaw is sore
Man my jaw is sore
Man my jaw is sore

Mass collide
Track Name: Homestead
You said you'd only make it easy for me
Kick this disability right off my back
Instead you acted like you didn't care
And stuffed all of our medicare into a sack

Homestead

You said you'd play a tune that's easy on me
Make good use of minor chords and dominant fifths
Instead you sounded like a rusty pipe
Striking out of tune delight from squealing kids

Homestead

Summer's gone let's leave the farm
The spider webs that trash the barn
And faraway the cuckoo writes a charming tale
The breeze falls when it runs into brick walls
And ushers me to raise my mast and set sail

Homestead
Track Name: No Mistakes
The other day I made no mistakes
It was the most boring day of my life
I went to school and I thought real hard
Did everything as I was told

So when I learned how to lose control
I pushed my body out to the edge
So that I could see it all
And not feel like I missed out

The other day I made no mistakes
Until I tripped on my own two feet
And as I went flying through the air
My face filled with much glee

But I'm made for
These accidents
And I'm learning to
Embrace them
Track Name: I Write Songs About You
You took little and gave so much
And no one even asked
You gave me a burning love
And forgave my past
And that's why I write songs about you

Call me crazy, I was messed up
Several times before
Sometimes I think it was dumb luck
That you were at my door
And that's why I write songs about you
