Track Name: Such Luck
I know that we fucked up
I know that you don’t care
I’ve learned that such luck
Is something I have to live with

But It still hurts
It makes me feel worse

I know that holding up alone is a bad idea
And I know that blowing up your phone is a bad idea

It’ll make me feel worse
God, it makes me feel worse
I guess that I should feel cursed
‘Cause it fucking still hurts.
Track Name: Two Beers In
Two beers in,
Already feels like it’s one of those nights to forget.
The more that I drink the more that I feel broken and alone
At a party with friends.

Fuck everything about this.

You walk in with the new boyfriend you met just last week.
His big grin.
He doesn’t know that you’ll leave him so broken and alone
When it comes to an end

Fuck everything about him.

Two beers in,
Already feels like it’s one of those nights to forget.
The more that I drink the more that I feel broken and alone.
Track Name: Good Job, Champ
Lately I’ve been staring at my ceiling,
Thinking daily, pondering the feeling
That you hate me,
And how that makes me feel.
I’m uncertain that you ever cared or thought that love was real,
But I still find a million reasons to keep the things you left behind.

Like the letters that we wrote your first semester in the fall
Or the pictures in my closet that used to hang upon my wall

They’re still not gone,
You wouldn’t expect that would you?
You didn’t expect that did you?
I can’t blame you, I never thought I’d keep them, after all.
And after all I was the one who had to finally make the call.

I had to leave, you didn’t love me for me.
Why can’t you see, you didn’t love me for who I am?
Track Name: Tongue Tied
What I say is what I get
I’m just tongue tied
Waiting in the back of my mind
Is “You’re not worth it.”
A daily dose of my own regret
And unsaid feelings that I won’t forget
So I speak the truth into empty cans and bottles (it’s a problem)

The definition of a diary but put into a song
Everything I ever meant to say but always said it wrong
Every day I dial your number I just never make the call
It’s like standing on the edge so I can contemplate the fall

Did you forget you said forever when I asked how long you’d stay
And that we’d always make it better if it ever went astray?
I guess liars aren’t compatible, that’s why we parted ways
It doesn’t change the fact I still believe in everything you say

So I’ll contemplate the fall

What I say is what I get
I’m just tongue tied
Lets just get this over with
A knot left untied

The definition of a diary but put into a song

Did you forget you said forever when I asked how long you’d stay
It doesn’t change the fact I still believe in everything you say

Because I do.
Track Name: Pallet Town
In the hospital I formulated a picture perfect way
To predict when I got out
What I thought I’d be strong enough to say
But I can’t tell you
I don’t know why
I can’t tell you
My throat goes dry

So I’ll call my friends for beers
And try to drink away the years
Of believing what you wrote in my yearbook
There’s no changing the direction those years took now
And we’ll play our favorite songs
And we’ll have to sing a long
To pretend that we’re reliving the old days
I’ll pretend that you aren’t stuck in your old ways now

It must take a mastermind or some kind of genius
To figure out the reasons
Behind all of this
And why I’m not over it.

I’m still not over it and that’s pretty plain to see.
Track Name: An Hour Pissed
You know I'm a drinker, but I won't swallow my pride anymore
Tonight you've got me thinking so hard that my fucking eyelids are sore
I don't want to live this life when every single minutes a chore
We complicate our existence and what the fuck do we do it for?

God damn it's been way too long
Since we've agreed on anything at all
I kept my hopes up, I'm so sorry
I never thought that you could make me feel so (small)

I'm tired of the bullshit and the fact we're never on the same page
I hate the way you smirk at every single fucking thing that I say
And I think...
I think right now's the perfect time to tell you that we're taking a break

Oh, nevermind.

God damn it's been way too long
Since we've agreed on anything at all
I kept my hopes up, I'm so sorry
I never thought that you could make me feel so small
Track Name: Kim Tastie
Somehow I failed in your eyes.
Somehow I’ve gone stale
Is that all that you wanted from me?

I’ve seen the weight of regret
In the look you give me when we’re alone
It wasn’t there the day we met
How could we have ever known

Am I not all that you wanted?
At all?

Sometimes I hear you crying
While I’m pretending to sleep
Is it that hard to love me
Or Is love just hard to keep?

I think it is.

Yeah.
Track Name: How I Got My Shrunken Head
My thought process is constant rat race
A battle of emotions between numb and a bad place
I don’t think I’ll ever learn
No I’ll probably never learn

The novel worth of text you wrote to try and explain
Was full of bad excuses mostly written in vain
It’s not something I think I’ve earned
And that’s probably none of your concern now.

It’s not your fault
I’m a wreck, a mess, I’m broken
I tend to give my all to end up confused and hoping for a change.

And I don’t think that I’ll ever learn.
No I’ll probably never learn.
Track Name: Let's Get Invisible
Did you know that forever and always
Meant nothing more than a couple of words
and the smile it put on my face
I think that’s bullshit
You know it’s bullshit
I wonder if you miss me at all
Or even care about my existence

I’m sitting in my bedroom having sing alongs to songs you’ve never heard
Or that you’d probably never care about, I can’t figure out what’s worse
The ease with which you lied and convinced me I was not someone you’d throw away
Or the fact that it fucking worked
I guess I’ll just push play and be a stowaway

Did you feel anything at all?
Or was I just a way to pass the time
Until your boredom built a wall
And was it worth it?
It wasn’t worth it.
The flawless picture inside my head turned out to be imperfect.

The songs they’re droning on and on
As the day’s rolling on and on.
Track Name: What Day Is It, October?
My lifestyle is a form of suicide
But then again everyone’s is
Mine just may be faster than others
The drinking, smoking, hearing from my mother
That I should take much better care of myself

I spend my life staring at my bedroom walls
The TVs on but I don’t care
In my mind it really hasn’t been that long
But then reality sets in and It’s been years.

All alone in my room
Without anything to do

Except I’m thinking of you
And the times that we spent
Glued at the lips, always attached at the hip
Your special brand of crazy
And the sex after fights
I know that those days are gone
I think about it most nights

Those days are gone.
I think about you most nights.
Track Name: Hey Ken, Someone Methodically Mushed the Donuts
These days I like to sleep my life away
But back then I’d stay awake just to see your face
I wouldn’t sleep for days

But now I sleep for days

These days I like to sleep my life away
But back then I’d stay awake just to see your face
I wouldn’t sleep for days
But now I sleep for days

I never should have said that I loved you
I never should have said a god damn thing
I should have kept my fucking mouth shut
And then it would have stayed,
It probably would have stayed,
I know it would have stayed the same.
