Track Name: Growing Up and Growing Beards
(Seven seconds of silence in the beginning)

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: We Don't Have Good Days Anymore
I fell asleep last night saying sorry
But I can’t let it get to me
It’s nothing new to feel this way
Opening up the bottle just to hear you say

(Chorus)
We don’t have good days anymore
We don’t have good days anymore
And I can fool myself
Because tomorrow is a brand new day

Let’s deck these halls with promises of letting go
Please tell me that you’ll lock the door
Take apart my mind with these thoughts of a pessimist
Because things aren’t all right now

(Chorus)

It was a good day
It was a good day
And I will fool myself because
Tomorrow is a brand new day
It was a good day
And I will fool myself
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

They're telling me the truth
Track Name: No, It's A Pattern
And it starts with me
Telling myself
That I deserve this
Then it moves to me
Telling myself
That I deserve this
It’s the happiness
That I need the most
It’s to hold someone that you love close
It’s saying the things that I only want to hear

(Chorus)
I know that I may be close
To knowing how it feels to be held back
But my time with you
It tells me to tell the truth
But my time with you
It tells me to tell the truth

I can fool myself
By telling me
That tomorrow’s a brand new day
But waking up
By myself
Is something I can’t change
It’s beating my down
I’m losing the fight
But I have something they don’t know
It’s you
You’re changing me too

(Chorus)

And I’m winning the fight
I’m tearing it down
I’m taking it back for more
And my houses are
They’re burning down
And I could care less
From coast to coast
I’ll carry this message around
That I’m strong enough
To tell myself that I’m okay
I’m okay
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: 18 & 1
We’ll stop this for a while
And bring it back
When I surround myself
With things from my past
I’ll feel at home in my mindset

But things are moving far too fast
That I lose my sights on what I want
And who I am
I can’t forget that this is where I will be
I can hope for the best
But for now I’ve decided to leave

(Chorus)
I can fight it for a while
‘cause this is where I’ll be
I can fight it for a while
‘cause this is where I’ll be

And I can hope for a smile
But all I get is a kiss
Is this where I find myself?
Has there been something I missed?
Did I forget to grow up?
Or am I stuck in the past?
Are you here with me now?
And is this all gonna last?

(chorus)

Am I a captive of what is expected of me?
Am I a traitor to the musicians that I see?
All I wanted was to write you a song
All I got was this notion that I’ve always been wrong

And I will fight for this my whole life through
And throughout it all I will always be thinking of you
You all have been with me since I was young
Now I know I’ll never forget where I am from
Thank you all for this
Thank you all for this
