Track Name: The Days // God Knows
The Days // God Knows

Don’t forget the car
How could you forget the car?
Don’t put it past me
Wherever you’re going, just make it far
I don’t know about knowing
But that’s where I’ll be

And the days go by like god knows when
And we’d sing about summer but write it with a pen
All day long

Don’t hold off on the cause
Never ever let go of the cause
Don’t put it past me
You’ve gotta leave a mark
A mark on the world
If you’re a flame and a spark
Then what’s that make me?

Doot doo do
Doot doo do

And the days go by like god knows when
So kiss me like I’m a sailor like I remember you back then
All day long
And the years went by like I don’t even know them
Man, you’re killing my summer by showing up every now and then
All day long
Track Name: Infinity Friends
Infinity Friends

In the dark, in the dark
I’m always in the dark

Yeah, you talk and you talk
But you never walk the walk

You are afraid of everything
That’s inside of me
But deep down
You are the same as all the things I pretend to be

That’s right

Where are your friends now?
I am the only one you have
But I don’t know how
Things got so messed up, darling
Where are your friends now?
I am the only one you have

In the dark, in the dark
I’m always in the dark

Yeah, you talk and you talk
But can you walk the walk?

No…

In the dark, in the dark
I’m always in the dark

I don’t know your face
It’s just a mask I see
The unfamiliar sound
But you’re going with me
When I go down

Where are your friends now?
I am the only one you have
But I don’t know how
Things got so fucked up, darling

And though my mind is made up
And yeah, we’ve grown up
Well, things have gone astray

Where are your friends now?
I am the only one you have
Track Name: Over / Seas
Over / Seas

I’m sick and lonely
So bring me the water
Or bring me the rum
And don’t bite your tongue
Because it’s just begun

I’m stuck here stranded
On this island
Where I can’t go
Over there, or anywhere

Oh

I’m so sick and lonely
So bring me the bottle
Or bring me the rum
And don’t bite your tongue
Because this war is won

What’s important to you is important to the captain, skipper
When we’re on this island
What’s in it for you is in it for me
We’re going nowhere

All day I’ve been drinking
All day I’ve been thinking...

That what’s important to you is important to the captain, skipper
But we’re on an ocean
And what’s in it for you is in it for me
When we’re going nowhere
We’re going somewhere
Or we’re going nowhere
Track Name: So So Tired
So So Tired

If you’re tired of wasting all your time
And if you’re tired of living off of dimes

Well, I’m wired to the back of your mind
We’re just like soldiers walking over mines
Or when you’re walking over a blanketed see
I’ll know you’re tired so I can be all you need

She wants to blow all my brains out
Blow my brains out
Give me the rundown
Why am I always by her side?
I don’t know why she blows all my brains out
She wants to blow all my brains out

I know you’re tired of being over here
So say so, say something

I am not a hero, I am a questionable man
So when I’m not there with the knots around my hands
Please tell them I’d love to be there but
I’m so tired I could die
I could

She wants to blow all my brains out
Blow my brains out
Give me the rundown
Why am I always on your side?
I don’t know why she blows all my brains out
She wants to blow all my brains out
Track Name: Below
Below

Would it hurt you to try?
To leave me to die?
Because I’ve been thinking you should go your own way
Everyone knows you should go your own way

I am below the surface
Given the words that you mentioned
You are my only friend
Climb below the surface tension

Cold air and warm sun
Is when you and I are done
Why do we do the things we do?
Why do I do the stupid shit I do?

I am below the surface
Given the words that you mentioned
You are my only friend
Climb below the surface tension

Did you burn down the house?
Or did I box the mouse?
In the corner of every empty room
In the corner of every burning room

I am below the surface
Given the words that you mentioned
You are my only friend
Track Name: Mend / / World
Mend / / World

I believe you, baby
Waiting on the world won’t mend us together
It’s no better than pretending to be someone else
Other than myself

She’s on top of the world
He wants her to come down
She shines a light in his eyes
His darkness with her lies

They took the stairway down…

I believe you, baby
Waiting on the world won’t mend it together
It’s no better than pretending to be someone else
Other than myself
I’d believe you baby, if you stopped to see that I am crying

She’s on top of the world
He wants her to come down
She shines lights in his eyes
His darkness in her lies

When they take the stairway down
The world’s on fire

I believe you, baby
Waiting on the world won’t mend us together
It’s no better than pretending to be someone else
Other than myself
Track Name: Wait
Wait

I wanna be a gentleman
To the girls down the street

The snow falls; it’s tender
And onto you and on to me…

Don’t hold on, keep your eyes ahead
If it wasn’t for myself, I’d be right there, waiting
If it wasn’t for myself, I’d be right here

Look up, sweetheart
I can fix this

Nightlife for starlight
Was one chance I missed

I can’t to turn around
But this ball and chain keeps bringing me down

Don’t hold on, keep your mind at ease
If it wasn’t for myself, I’d be right there, waiting
If it wasn’t for myself, I’d be right there

Don’t hold on, keep your eyes ahead
If it wasn’t for myself I’d be right there, waiting
If it wasn’t for myself I’d be right there
Track Name: Skeleton///Frames
Skeleton///Frames

Parentheses around your shoulders
And an underlining round your frame
Being young but feeling much older
I can’t shake this peculiar shame

The puppeteer hangs at night
From the noose made of his strings
Just like you and your fragile fright
With the outlandish upcoming it brings

So far over the hill
Can you give me time
To keep myself from hell
Or out of the sun?

You better draw the line
Or hold your guns

Because I’m not ticking
In this explosive shell
But I’ve got to hide
Or I swear to god they will kill me now

Underneath your skin
There’s no bones left alone
The skeleton inside you comes alive
Sending shivers down your spine

And I get cold

Underneath your feet
There’s a sign between the lines
Telling you to go back to where you came from
Rendering your hands to become numb

And I get cold

And it’s not like you to play them all
Like it’s not your fault
But I guess that’s how it goes
You’ll die alone
You will surely die alone

Born to die?
Was I born to die?
Track Name: Devils Kiss
Devil Kiss

(Sniff)

You think you’ve got it bad?
I’ve got holes in all four of my tires
If I told you I had my life on track
Well, I’d be a straight up liar

There’s a thing I like to call guilt but
Guilt calls me shameless
Like folks running around with guns
Kids from all around calling me aimless

Man, they do it

Yeah, you’ve got it under your thumb
Don’t you?
Yeah, you’ve got it under control
Don’t you?

Like I have fucks to spare
I’m on the clock and people are taking up space
And for the next eight hours I have to act to care
While all the while I wanna focus on winning the life race
You know?

Yeah, you’ve got it under control
Don’t you?
Yeah, you’ve got it under your thumb
Don’t you?

Devil’s kiss, why’d up and come after me?
“You’re just a lonely bastard waiting to die!”
Devil’s kiss, Devil’s kiss is bringing me down
It’s up and back and I don’t know why

Devil’s kiss, you have to be mistaken
Never ever would I waste so much time
Devil’s kiss, is there someone else to have your way with?
Maybe all along I shouldn’t have wasted my time

Devil’s kiss why’d you up and come after me?
“You’re just a lonely bastard waiting to die!”
Devil’s kiss, devil’s kisses bringing me down
It’s something bad, but I don’t know what

Devil’s kiss, you have to be mistaken
Never ever would I waste so much time
Devi’s kiss, is there someone else to have your way with?
Maybe all along I shouldn’t have waited to die

(Looking for a man
Yes, he’s right over there!
Suit case in hand
Uggh…)
Track Name: Smokes/
Smokes/

I see another dimension
In the television set
And there she stands
Speaking through the telephone
Keep your eyes on the prizes
Cause oh, if I could
I’d speak in a code that
No one understands

Such a beautiful world

Man, I lose sleep at night
Over you
And the rain it falls
I can see it from in my room
And I know you want things
To stay the same
But can’t you see I’ve changed?

Something about the place
Marks a start of pace
And you’re so much better
Than all of it put together
Your head is my prize
And your heart is my fortune
I hold it close to me until the days are drained
But never ever have I seen
Something so obscene

Such a beautiful world…

And I lose sleep at night
Over you
And the rain it falls
I can see it from in my room
And I wish I could stay
But the world moves so much faster
In my eyes
And that name you call
Well, there is no answer
And you realize
That you want things
To stay the same
But can’t you see I’ve changed?---
