Track Name: Wake Me Up When "Wake Me Up When September Ends" Ends (Nicole's Song)
Nicole, I came out in the cold to see you
No shoes, just souls surrounded by the sound
Of snow on the ground laid down beside your car
I knew that this was the perfect place to start

Anew, if that’s what you’re into

I can’t believe that you kissed me
Not the first time but that’s just fine
I’m just so fucking happy
You didn’t put that gear in drive

You let me talk for way too long
And pretend you’re listening
Eating popcorn in my bed
Just what I’ve been missing
And you’ll always take me home
After I’ve been drinking
Or you’ll leave my ass behind
Because it’s so damn funny

To fuck with you, that’s what I’m into

I can’t believe that you kissed me
Not the first time but that’s just fine
I’m just so fucking happy
You didn’t put that gear in drive
Track Name: I Believe In "I Believe In A Thing Called Love"
Do you wanna get fucked up?
Do you wanna forget what you just said to me?
We can just let it be
There's something so human
About letting your past wash over your future
Why is the present so useless?

What I'm trying to say is
Please don't go away
Cuz I can't risk losing
All that keeps me sane

I'm always losing my car, my keys, my sense of urgency
But I’m 24 and I’m a year away from a quarter century
I wouldn’t buy a single thing that I was trying to sell
Because I don’t think I’ve truly found myself

Are you still fucked up?
Do we start from where we just left off?
I feel nothing at all
I’ll just get in my own way
I don’t need your help so what are you asking?
I just stopped listening

What I'm trying to say is
Please don't go away
Cuz I can't risk losing
All that keeps me sane

I'm always losing my car, my keys, my sense of urgency
But I’m 24 and I’m a year away from a quarter century
I wouldn’t buy a single thing that I was trying to sell
Because I don’t think I’ve truly found myself
Track Name: And Your Strength Is Devastating (In The Face Of All These Odds)
Well here I am
Writing down “In Memoriam...”
And I can’t breathe
But I don’t think I would like to
I hope I don’t wake up
Because your face is all I see

They say you don’t
Know what you got til it’s gone
But I knew what I had
I just couldn’t stand to see it go
Your word meant the world to me
I wish I could let you know

The harsh Nevada summers
Paid off at the start
Goddamn this funeral weather
Has ripped out my heart
The harsh Nevada summers
Paid off at the start
Goddamn this funeral weather
Has ripped out my heart
Track Name: I Choo Choo Choose You
Your future, your future’s looking so damn bright
So if you could kindly just remove your spine
And I, I spat out blood night
A ghost that I can see with my eyes closed tight

Every whisper needs a mouth
But every home is not a house
And I can tear you
I can tear you from the inside out

Asleep at the wheel, another night I spent alone
My demons, my demons they will guide me home
And all my anxieties hang over me
Stabbed in the back by your sword of Damocles

Every whisper needs a mouth
But every home is not a house
And I can tear you
I can tear you from the inside out

Track Name: 1 Land 1 God 10 Billion Devils: 1 Land 2 Gods 4 Angles 8 Angels 80 Trillions Devils (Volume 2)
It’s apparent; it must be obvious to you
That I don’t know if I’m still here
What a mindset a foggy fucked up point of view
I’m way too high to make big decisions
About my life and how it’s always moving sideways
And I don’t know why I’m living
The way I choose to because it’s pointless
I’d rather drink ‘til my skin’s blue

You give me that “I’m sorry for your loss look”
We’re all still waiting for your next book
I’m a clock that works twice a day
But like your wristwatch we’ll fade away
I hear the country’s nice this time of year
You’ll find comfort facing all your fears
Why would you live and die as who you’re not
When we’re all equals in our grave plots

There are times when I often think to myself
Maybe I’ll really become a better person
Growth is something that’s so hard to come by
When all I want is something to lessen
The blow of all my self-defeat and past expectations
I’ll try and find that last voice of reason
To whisper gently to me as I shut my eyes
And pray to her that it’s not my last time

You give me that “I’m sorry for your loss look”
We’re all still waiting for your next book
I’m a clock that works twice a day
But like your wristwatch we’ll fade away
I hear the country’s nice this time of year
You’ll find comfort facing all your fears
Why would you live and die as who you’re not
When we’re all equals in our grave plots

Don’t ever question your self-worth
We have much bigger crosses to bear
They’ll cut you down, so cut them first
We have much bigger crosses to bear X 4
