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: Rest Stop
i think i'm just just a love song
but really i'm a loner
sittin' in the corner
if life is just a rest stop
i think we just passed it
we'll get off at the next one

wait and see
what you'll find out
once you leave
now let it go

time to find out what you're made of
all of what you've done was made up
i'm the idea you're afraid of
this sudden change is never ending
all your life you've been waiting
for a moment
well it's fading

wait and see
what you'll find out
once you leave
now let it go
have it all for free
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: Out From Under
you've got no time but you've got all of your life
to get by, to get high, to put a shade over your eyes
you're always uptight and you know i feel it
you're always tongue tied but i know that it's alright

and all we had in store was taken from my door
and i'm glad i got her number
'cause now i'm out from under

i've got no time but i've got all of my life
to get by, to get high, to put a shade over my eyes
i'm always uptight and i know you feel it
i'm always tongue tied but i know that it's alright

all we had in store was taken from my door
and I'm glad i got her number
'cause now i'm out from under
Track Name: Drank The Water
i don't know just where it goes
but i understand
it happens that way
it all stays the same
'til it's gone from your head
like it never did
i know someday you'll find a way to go
some never know
it happens to most
then you're up on the screen
saying all that you mean

it is you

i just know i gotta grow up
i'll never win
it's called bein' a boy
you gotta make up a plan
and you stick with it
like it's all that you did
i think there's somethin' here that's making me stay
drank the water i guess
love makes you this way
then it all stays the same
you start believin' your dream

i could be anyone
anyone
to you
i don't know anyone
anyone
but i know you
it is you
it is
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
Track Name: Melancholy Paper Drum
eyes sink like heavy stones
rather be left alone
to stare at the purple sun
melancholy paper drum

everything you have is real
it just depends on how you feel
and everything you've ever had
is in the sands of old baghdad

all around there's song and dance
with golden wine in their hands
and everything you'll ever have
is spilling from the flowing glass

eyes sink like heavy stones
rather be left alone
to stare at the purple sun
melancholy paper drum
Track Name: Home
we spent six long weeks in the sun
getting higher than life was an idea i called fun
there was nothing tripping us up
there was nothing i felt i had to run from
i was home, yeah i was home

drinking fire like wine
a couple liquor store diamonds
the tales of the girls and places they've been
and something like regret was a foreign concept
i was home, i was home

i was home, i was home
the time i spent came and went
i was home, i was home
Track Name: Stick Around
i think of heaven when i think of you
i see the love in the world too
there is a kingdom within you
in this place dreams come true

and i know it's not perfect
but i swear that it's worth it to stick around
yeah stick around

i had a vision that you were a star
and time has told me that you really are

and i know it's not perfect
but i swear that it's worth it to stick around
yeah stick around
stick around
yeah stick around
stick around
yeah stick around
stick around
yeah stick around
