Track Name: I Eat Stickers All The Time, Dude!
Coughing up poor decisions
From the night before
I need to take a breath
Cigarettes on the back porch
And your voice
Is such a welcome sound
I choked on the courage I never found

It’s the changing of the seasons
Oh how it feels to be naïve
An exchange of excuses and reasons
We’re sending signals between shaking knees

Stale yearbook expression
Still I can’t move past
Your total lack of discretion
I wasn’t there if they ask
And if I had the chance
To do this again
I’d say fuck it man and go back to bed

It’s the changing of the seasons
Oh how it feels to be naïve
An exchange of excuses and reasons
We’re sending signals between shaking knees
Track Name: Blackout
Let’s make this easy
You know exactly how you want to feel
So which way are you leaning?
Stop faking that smile you had to steal

And you can be tonight’s
Blackout sacrifice
The sacrament of warm beer, the blood of Christ
You’ll wake up tomorrow with brand new eyes

Your smile screams open arms
But your body language says you’ll do me harm
Breathing in the dead air
The stale conversations and coldest stares

And you can be tonight’s
Blackout sacrifice
The sacrament of warm beer, the blood of Christ
You’ll wake up tomorrow with brand new eyes
Track Name: Chris Traeger...
I’m so fed up, with the person I’ve become
Can’t stay awake, unfulfilled by the day to day
But what’s the use tongue tied tight like a noose
I’m all out of empathy, quit telling me I’m fine

But you don’t say anything
No, you don’t assert yourself at all

But my bones are broken
And there’s nothing holding together this
Awkward person
No I can’t believe that it’s come to this
And my hands are holding on
To what is left of my mental health
And I’ll sit in judgment
This solitude is a living hell

You’ve got a saw-tooth grin, but I’m the one who let you in
There’s venom in everything I say, but you made me this way
Judging by the way you stare, you don’t want me here
You’re not taking chances, you’re just taking me for granted

But you don’t say anything
No, you don’t assert yourself at all

But my bones are broken
And there’s nothing holding together this
Awkward person
No I can’t believe that it’s come to this
And my hands are holding on
To what is left of my mental health
And I’ll sit in judgment
This solitude is a living hell
Track Name: ...Ann Perkins!
It’s just one less breath I’ll have to take
One less bullshit code I’ll have to break
And the ground is covered in three feet of snow
But I still know, but I still know that it’s there
And my words were frozen before my eyes
I guess the dying season came early this time

Well happy new year
And I’m doing fine
Lovers and strangers
It’s such a fine line

It’s just one less breath you’ll have to take
One less promise that you know you’ll break
And your house is covered in three feet of snow
But I still know, but I still know that you’re there
And you stood there frozen before my eyes
I guess I’ll be the one who says goodbye this time

Well happy new year
And I’m doing fine
Lovers and strangers
Why can’t you choose a side

I could stop being bitter
I could try growing up
Ascend the pecking order
Start giving a fuck
