Track Name: Friday Night
closed minds and insecurity/ looking for a place to fit in just like me/ with no emphasis on intention just undeserved pretension/ we’re all giving up our attention spans/ it’s a small world/ a small town/ small personalities/ everybody wants to be somebody else/ but last night showed me almost everything i know about all the people in this town is based on bullshit gossip/ boring days/ jealousy and hate/ and i’m tired of life as an outsider just because being me doesn’t fit inside a scene/ i’ll take what i have learned/ forget what i have heard about you/ whatever it takes to get you by/ take what you have learned/ forget what you have heard about me/ whatever it takes/ we’ll all be fine/
Track Name: Love Songs
i feel like a reflection/ a concept/ a notion/ an alternate version of a person i don’t know/ and i know that’s pathetic so i’m making up my mind/ i’ll change my mind/ and all these love songs on the radio make me wonder/ well i wonder all the time/ how can i make this feeling stay when doubt keeps me running away/ an awkward example a thought to entertain/ find an end to all these questions/ try not to say her name/ i’m always looking backwards and i feel like giving up/ i’m on the verge of feeling helpless/ i’d rather just stay stuck here/
Track Name: Coast to Coast
life was simple when i didn’t have a clue/ and it’s funny how loneliness was comforting too/ and i used to believe in honesty and integrity/ but now i just believe in me/ i can see the coast/ and sure enough the coast is clear/ and i’m trying to forget last year/ i spent a lifetime on the east side/ now we’re all moving away and i wish that i could stay/ as i get older i can feel my heart getting colder every fucking day/ and i would give anything to feel anything at all/ pain or pride/ or a simple piece of something that i could try to call my own/
Track Name: For Days
i spent all day trying to think straight/ with good intentions known i feel like i can only wait/ it’s like the struggle inside of both our lives has turned itself to hate/ i wish i could say i’m sorry now if i did complicate your life/ it’s your life even if i’m not around/ but time moves by so slowly so i braced myself for this/ i’d be on my way if you needed something off your chest/ i found out i was wrong all along/ i found out i was wrong/ i spent all day trying to think straight/ with good intentions known i feel like i can only wait and hope someday you’ll lift your head and stare into my face and speak softly i’m sorry kid if i did complicate your life/
Track Name: Better Luck Next Year
invade my space and pretend not to notice as i’m going through the motions/ lately i feel like i’ve been getting better/ but am i getting better now/ when losing faith is becoming second nature/ i made my plans/ and i know who i am/ i’m still afraid that i’m making mistakes/ i can’t complain but for now i’m doing ok/ i can’t complain/ i pretend not to notice as i’m going through the motions/ lately the days all just run together/ but things are getting better now/ i’m slowly walking away/ i still don’t know what i’m looking for/ what am i even looking for/
Track Name: Nothing to Say
it’s the same situation i’m complicating every time/ everybody knows they’re on their own/ and when i think about all the time i spent just holding on to hope/ i’m thinking it shows/ my optimism shows/ well i’m starting to see/ don’t believe in much of anything these days/ seems like the world won’t change/ don’t wait up for me/ i’ve seen enough to know i’m doing ok/ man i’ve got nothing left to say/ it’s the same kind of feeling i’m over thinking every time/ i just wanna know which way to go/ and when i start to explain that i’ll never be the same/ it’s a perfect story but i’ve got nothing to say/
