Track Name: Yep, 27 And Still Writing Pop-Punk
She stopped and said, "I've taken a lot today."
Let's count our losses like we've counted our years apart
My eyes sink deep, tack on more misery
Another spiral into the depths of her, the depths of her

Cold heart, got my tongue stuck to it
All her body parts are showing signs of age
I've got a sneaking suspicion
There's more to this equation
Than another five years apart.

She stopped and said, "I've taken a lot today."
Let's count our losses like we've counted our years apart
My eyes sink deep, tack on more misery
Another spiral into the depths of her

Cold heart, got my tongue stuck to it
All her body parts are showing signs of age
I've got a sneaking suspicion
There's more to this equation
Than another five years apart.
In the process of burning all my bridges
I'll never trust another beating heart
Could be a politician with the bullshit you’ve been dishing
To give you the attention you want.

But all I want is this pain
In my head to go away.
I don’t ever want to fall, la-lal,
Lal-lal in love again
It breaks my heart knowing you’re alive

Cold heart, got my tongue stuck to it
All her body parts are showing signs of age
I've got a sneaking suspicion
There's more to this equation
Than another five years apart.
In the process of burning all my bridges
I'll never trust another beating heart
Could be a politician with the bullshit you’ve been dishing
To give you the attention you want.
Track Name: Wait, So Umm, You Eat Chicken, Right?
Put a “v” after my name so I don’t feel ashamed when I eat
I see a “C-H-E-L” name popping up on my phone
Whenever I stop feeling okay with myself
Oh pity is the kind of game explaining why you act this way
Put a “v” after my name so I don’t feel ashamed when I eat
I see a “C-H-E-L” name popping up on my phone
Whenever I stop feeling okay

I want to make you believe
I want to make you believe
There’s still faith in humanity
I want to make you believe
I want to make you believe

Put a “v” after my name so I don’t sound insane when I eat
And say that “our Earth’s dying”
I’m a prick and I’m bitter
But at least I’m not a hypocrite

I want to make you believe
I want to make you believe
There’s still faith in humanity
I want to make you believe
I want to make you believe
We’re not useless

(spoken)
HEY, HEY
LET’S THROW OUT EVERYTHING

I want to make you believe
I want to make you believe
There’s still faith in humanity
I want to make you believe
I want to make you believe
But money’s what we’re after anyway

We’re all in it for the money anyway
We’re all in it for the money anyway
We’re better off marrying a bank
We’re all in it for the money anyway
We’re all in it for the money anyway
We’re better off marrying a bank
Track Name: I Award You No Points and May God Have Mercy On Your Soul
Greetings from Deep Ellum
Texas really shines so brightly this time of year
And I hope this letter finds you
In some place nearly as pretty
As this one filled with whiskey, gin, and beer

And I don’t know when I’ll see you
So I’m writing you this postcard
From the places that I’d hoped that we would go
And I don’t know where you’re headed
But I do know the direction of the dreams I had
When we controlled the world

And I don’t wanna
Give up on something I know is better
And I don’t wanna
Give up on something I know is better

Salutations from Alaska
The Northern Lights are stunning just like your eyes
And the chill of 5 AM when the city streets are empty
Filled with nothing but the ghosts that haunt the skies

And I don’t know when I’ll see you
So I’m writing you this postcard
From the places that I’d hoped that we would go
And I don’t know where you’re headed
But I do know the direction of the dreams I had
When we controlled the world

And I don’t wanna
Give up on something I know is better
And I don’t wanna
Give up on something I know is better

Greeting from Deep Ellum
Texas really shines so brightly
This time of year
(This time of year)
And I hope this letter finds you in some place nearly as pretty
As this one filled with whiskey, gin, and beer.

And I don’t wanna
Give up on something I know is better
And I don’t wanna
Give up on something I know is better
And I don’t wanna
Give up on something I know is better
Track Name: ATL... DTF?
Oh, I can see what’s going on here
Thanks for the surprise, but I’ll pass
I can’t believe I let my guard down so fast
When making plans only worse
When I’m filling up your purse
Well you’re filling my head with expectations
I’m all set

I rode around all day just to find a way
To understand why people act the way they do and I said,
“Hey Rob, why do you always end up making these mistakes?
You’re so pathetic, it makes me fucking sick.”
I’m all set

I can’t wait forever
This dead end street’s just a passing place
Don’t try to compare it to my life
I can’t see what the future holds
But I know that I’m better off alone anyway

I can’t wait forever
This dead end street’s just a passing place
Don’t try to compare it to my life
I can’t see what the future holds
Motherfucker, I know that I’m better off alone anyway

I know you might always be a part of who I am
But I’m better off alone anyway
I know you might always be a part of who I am
But I’m better off alone anyway
Track Name: Everybody's In Love With Someone Who Isn't You
Sat in my room, reflecting in rivers running makeup
Makeup you never needed
You closed your eyes, terrified
When you looked in mine and saw forever

Young enough to care, old enough to know better
She said, “Let’s put this away
and take it out when we’re ready, later.”

Closed my door expecting you to turn around and
tell me, “This isn’t right.”
But nothing’s right anytime
I’ll forgive, but not forget

Young enough to care, old enough to know better
She said, “Let’s put this away
and take it out when we’re ready, later.”

Young enough to care, old enough to know better
She said, “Let’s put this away
and take it out when we’re ready, later.”
Track Name: Yeah, From the Worcester Days
I confess this is the easy way out
“Mike and Robby, Jeff and Pat must have it easy”
The only thing I ever loved has a tail
And I try so fucking hard to make exceptions

But I can’t and it’s safe to the say the last five years
Have changed who I am
I know you’ve got to give up to let go

Highest of the highs and lowest of the lows
But I’m stuck right in the middle feeling nothing
The only thing I ever loved has a tail
And I try so fucking hard to make exceptions

But I can’t and it’s safe to the say the last five years
Have changed who I am
I know you’ve got to give up to let go

I’m convinced that all of this is just a lie and all of my aggression
Will someday disappear when I wake up
In a box underground where no one hears the sound of my panic
To keep me from falling

I’m convinced that all of this is just a lie and all of my aggression
Will someday disappear when I wake up
In a box underground where no one hears the sound of my panic
To keep me from falling
