Track Name: QB Sneak
i've had two weeks of bad dreams,
now I'm living on caffeine
and there's a place that I can go
where there's a pretty little thing

feel like I'm stuck behind the scenes,
or smoking too much shitty weed
I gotta get up out this hole
or embrace a QB sneak

can't see my face on magazines,
not even in my dreams
hope there's a place that I can go
when they say it's time to leave

and when the words sound good but taste so bad
now they're spilling out the mouth of an undergrad
they've got an attitude like a burning sun
you're so close, you're so close
and now you are one
Track Name: Newbie
sometimes in this life it can be hard to explain
all the fucked up shit going on in my brain
sometimes in this life it can be hard to define
all the different ways, the different ways I wanna make her mine

sometimes i get tired of feeling like i'm on trial
i run in circles, run in circles makes me feel like i'm a child
sometimes in this life it can be hard to pursue
all the stupid shit, the stupid shit i really wanna do

sometimes in this life it can be hard to explain
all the fucked up shit going on in my brain
sometimes in this life it can be hard to define
all the different ways, the different ways I wanna make her mine
Track Name: Dead Legs
take me out of the world
take me out of the world until i'm gone

curled up under the dirt,
crawling through like a worm
it never stops

and god i'm tired
of feeling like i'm tired
i got a glacier on my head
i got an angel in my bed
and she sings away my dread
and when she does, when she does

these dead legs comes alive, and all my bullshit will subside
i'll start feeling my feet, it's only a matter of time
let's get something to eat, as long as i pay my rent on time

take me out of the world
take me out of the world, it's too much fun

i'm sinking under a shore
and I just keep asking for more
it's so fucked up

when these dead legs come alive, all my bullshit will subside
i'll start feeling my feet, it's only a matter of time
let's get something to eat, as long as i pay my rent on time
i won't feel insecure, like someone's worrying about me
because my record's fine, if i quit worrying half the time
