Track Name: I Hope Not
Well I’ve been waiting a year
To tell you how I’ve been feeling
And I feel it’s a waste of time
To be waiting a year
To let you know how I’m feeling
I’m not trying to waste your time
Cause I’ve been feeling oh so fine

It’s been a year of me finding
Out that I’ve been a mess
I couldn’t give my attention
Couldn’t pick up the pen
I hated all my motions
And I hated my friends
I was an ass I admit it
Might be making amends

I can’t change the way I acted
But I swear on beard
That I can change the way I’ll act
Or maybe I’ll disappear
But I hope not
But I hope not

Well I’ve been waiting a year
To tell you how I’ve been feeling
And I feel it’s a waste of time
To be waiting a year
To let you know how I’m feeling
I’m not trying to waste your time
Cause I’ve been feeling oh so fine

Now I can try my best
To change my chest
If it’s good enough for you
I’ve been alone in the bed
I’ve been asleep in the head
I didn’t want to depend on you

Well I’ve been waiting a year
To tell you how I’ve been feeling
And I feel it’s a waste of time
To be waiting a year
To let you know how I’m feeling
I’m not trying to waste your time
Cause I’ve been feeling oh so fine
Track Name: Lavender Town
Well I’m a dick
I gave you hell
I’m finally starting to
Assimilate myself
I never got what I wanted did i?
I never got what I wanted did i?
I never asked for anything
That seemed to me quite out of reach
If wanting more means getting less
I must be wanting countlessness

If I swear I can change
What I’ve been trying to say
Then would you promise to stay
For me just one more day
And now I’m falling apart
My words become a cliché
And if I’m stronger than that
I’ll find another way
Into your heart
I’ll go to Philadelphia

I just want to go home
But I’m finding trouble knowing where that is
Is it two cities?
Or somewhere in between?
No house on Mercer Ave
A plot makes up for that
I only wanted things to stay the same

I never asked for anything
That seemed to me quite out of reach
If wanting more means getting less
I must be wanting countlessness

If I swear I can change
What I’ve been trying to say
Then would you promise to stay
For me just one more day
And now I’m falling apart
My words become a cliché
And if I’m stronger than that
I’ll find another way
Into your heart
I’ll go to Philadelphia

Stay strong

I only wanted things to stay the same
But wanting never added up to much
My life is going through a change
I’m burning through your wallet
Like a candle to the flame
Between two cities
I know things will never change

Stay strong
Track Name: Plastic Dinosaurs
I’ve spent enough time with you to know
Exactly how it’s spent
And that’s enough to figure out when

Does it scare you to think
That who you were means nothing?
That your foundation has been a waste
Is this really who you are today?
Have you looked at your path?
Have you decided to stay?

We’re a civilized people
Draw a line in the sand
All your fighting back is feeble
Hold your heart in your hand
A falling picture on the ground
Line the halls with your stuff
Spray the gas, light the match
‘Cause it’s never enough
A bad nightmare
A lost cause
This is who I am today
Just press pause

And I have been here everyday
Thinking these thoughts I never say
Will you help me find a way
To place my past with me today?
These plastic dinosaurs mean nothing to you
They are everything to me
They’re telling me the truth

I’v spent enough time with you to know
Exactly how it’s spent
And that’s enough to figure out when

And I have been here everyday
Thinking these thoughts I never say
Will you help me find a way
To place my past with me today?
These plastic dinosaurs mean nothing to you
They are everything to me
They’re telling me the truth
Track Name: You Got Your Woody Allen In My Gerard Butler
And I’m waking up again
Talk to the hand ‘cause spinning is my head
I’m asking questions and I’m
Cleaning out my soul

Because growing up was just practice
It’s the life thereafter that’s the test
Jesus Christ don’t tell my this
I’m praying that I will not be missed

It’s about structure
It’s about getting where I need to be
I’m fighting for this everyday
My mind’s in the gutter and it’s telling me to stay
It’s about structure
It’s about knowing where I need to be
This is who I am today
I pray tomorrow I will be the same

The framing in my house is fucked
I wish I’d say it’s just bad luck
Can’t even blame it on the boogie
Doing all this to myself
Make my life a living hell
Help me find my way
The concrete’s cracking and it’s fucking up my day

It’s about structure
It’s about getting where I need to be
I’m fighting for this everyday
My mind’s in the gutter and it’s telling me to stay
It’s about structure
It’s about knowing where I need to be
This is who I am today
I pray tomorrow I will be the same
Track Name: Get To It
Well I let you go
It wasn’t easy but I told myself
That I deserved a better life
Let’s chalk it up to
That I just wanted to be in a better mood
I couldn’t let you bring be down
But I just cant keep up with all your banter
Or the thought of California coming after all of this

Baby you are my tower
And I’ll go through lengths
To get to the top
And see what you really think
I’m sorry I screwed up
I’m just a nervous wreck
My tongue is stuck when we talk
'Cause you make me feel so…

I remember the time that we talked until 2 am
And well into the day
I remember the time that I told you how I felt
And you told me you didn’t feel the same
I remember the time that I broke down
But I don’t need a reminder to know how I feel about you now

Don’t leave this town tonight
Come back and it will change
Don’t leave your bed tonight
It’ll never be home again

I’m not alone anymore
Don’t think I’m mad anymore
Moving on from I blew it
If we could just get to it
I’m not alone anymore
Don’t make me mad anymore
Her phone she thinks i threw it
If we could just get to it
Track Name: Tear It Apart
Its time to grow up
There’s things you cannot erase
Its time to grow a beard
And forget you have a face
It’s something that I tell myself
To get me through the day
That under this is someone else
And that he can be saved

I can never run away from this life
No not again no not this time
I’ll never fight again, I’ll never fight again
She yearns to burn again
Its serves her right for lighting up your heart
So ignite the sky to guide me in the dark

But for now I’ll just tear it apart

By now you should know
That my life is a show
It plays in all your places
I swore I would forget it but for now I’ll face this all

I have always been the man that has to feel
Like he’s carrying the world on his back
I raised the dead for you to see
That I could fight for this for me

She yearns to burn again
Its serves her right for lighting up your heart
So ignite the sky to guide me in the dark

But for now I’ll just tear it apart

Gang me up
Gang me up
Hang me up
Hang me up
Track Name: Good Days Pt. II
Don’t try to wait up for me
Cause It won’t do you any good
Because right now I’m asleep
But don’t think that I should be
Wasting life is something that I thought id never do
Gotta get me in line
Gotta get outta the blue

Because borrowing from everything
Is something that I do
Cause when you’re a guy like me
Its ‘cause there’s nothing left to lose

Don’t lose faith in me yet
There’s things that I wont admit
But id rather fall to the floor
Its something I’ve said before
I’d rather fall to the floor
We don’t have good days anymore

If anything I learned last year
Should come around again
I’d fall to pieces and I
Won’t even try to pretend
Cause it’s all I do
To feign happiness as if it’s the truth
If I don’t get me in line
Think I’ll be stuck in the blue

Because borrowing from everything
Is something that I do
But when you’re a guy like me
Its ‘cause there’s nothing left to lose

Take me
Away from myself
Break me
Cause if I don’t I’ll never leave my shell
Save me
Because it's starting to sound absurd
See if I plan on getting by today
The trust that I have left goes in my words
Track Name: My M.O.
It’s been 20 years
And I feel like I’m 45
Exit out the child hood
Enter in the rest of my life
Sink into reality
The people who are not
On the same page as me
Don’t take your time
Decide right now
The future’s looking dim
Don’t rush to find out
We’re all just growing old
We’re all just moving on
We’re all just feeling stuck
These are my fears don’t press my luck

Everybody’s just trying to get by
Staying sane is a hard thing to really grasp
And I’ve been driving in this car for hours
To get away from a life that moves to fast
And I would leave this if I could
I’m tired of the way you’re acting
Just lock me in my room

Sad to see we end in different places
Looking for acceptance in all the wrong hands
I hope you fine what you looking for
As longs as it’s really what you’re looking for

Everyone I know is wasting time
Fucking up inside their minds feel fine
Everyone I know is staying high
Take the hit just to get by
Everyone I know has disappeared
Finding jobs, schools or new peers
Everyone I know’s become a shell
Blame their problems on someone else

Sad to see we end in different places
Looking for acceptance in all the wrong hands
I hope you fine what you looking for
As longs as it’s really what you’re looking for

I’ll show you my biggest fears
I’ll show you my…
I’ll show you my biggest fears
Track Name: Growing Up And Growing Beards
You say there’s nothing left to fear
We’re growing up and growing beards
Well theres a song bleeding out of my pencil’s tip
There’s a guitar in my hand and a ring on my lip
And I’m changing
I’m changing for the worst

Night I’ve had in years
Was the night
I had to deal with us
And deal with who I am
But I can’t help with all these things that I say
I will become better
I will fight for this for me

Now when I say
That I’m losing the battle
All I mean is I’m trying to heal
I’m trying to speak
Out against all this depression I feel
I’m sorry I hurt
I’m sorry this was the worst

Night I’ve had in years
Was the night
I had to deal with us
And deal with who I am
But I can’t help with all these things that I say
I will become better
I will fight for this for me

Fight for this for me
Track Name: Bottles And Books
Well you got a bottle baby and I got a book
And I’ll be marking the minutes that made the hours it took
For me to find a way
To break the page
And find the words I felt that I need to say
A mile a minute I made the effort to talk
About a boy who’s a beast but hits the beau with a balk
And now I’m stuck on my tongue
That’s spits the words out quick
I take a breath in my lung
That leaves me lacking in wit

Well you got a bottle baby and I got a book
I put my foot on the gas but I think the engine just shook
Another hundred miles gone
Another lyric for this song
Don’t ever walk away from me
Don’t let this fiction stay between
I swear I can change things
I swear I can change things

Don’t bother me
About my week
And all the things that you say
Yeah you’re a fucking mistake
And I’ll be doing just fine
Cause I’ll be living my life
But I just don’t want to die
On the New Jersey Turnpike

The smoke is burning through my lungs
Pushed to my face from off their tongue
I’d leave but it just goes to show
That I’ve got nowhere else to go

Don’t bother me
About my week
And all the things that you say
Yeah you’re a fucking mistake
And I’ll be doing just fine
Cause I’ll be living my life
But I just don’t want to die
On the New Jersey Turnpike
