Track Name: Firework Show... (Blast Off!!!)
My heart beats 100 at 30 second minutes and I’ve never quite known a thing to do that to my body before. Firework show in my stomach carried over from the night before. I am right here. Standing right here. A pearl on the sand of some warm distant shore. I am right here. Standing right here. A pearl that you never once sought or cared for. Caffeine is the only thing keeping me going these days, I’m fighting off the (last night’s) drinks and... It makes my stomach turn. Makes my head feel like everything is moving forward. I am right here. Standing right here. A pearl on the sand of some warm distant shore. I am right here. Standing right here. A pearl that you never once sought or cared for. I am better than this low. DEATH BEFORE DECAF. I am better than this low. DEATH BEFORE DECAF. Better than this low (x4).
Track Name: Cruel Jokes On Pearl Divers
I’ve run myself out of the race. The story’s the same. Everyone’s the same no! Common buy me some hope, this isn’t hopeless. No it’s not for a lack of trying but nothing significant has happened since. And everyone keeps telling me its all-just timing… HOLD up, hopeless as ever. Its been 2 years and now I’m sick of trying, and you still think you’re innocent. HOLD up, hopeless as ever. Its been 2 years and now I’m sick of trying, and you still think you’re innocent. THAT YOU… DID…. NOTHING. I’m pearl diver, stuck in the doldrums, forced to dive pelagics, in search for the bottom and… Nothing’s quite the catch. They’re all just silhouettes that… COME AND GO….. COME AND GO! Nothing ever happens when you’re forced to dive pelagics, left to pry open the oyster for something… someone… HOLD up, hopeless as ever. Its been 2 years and now I’m sick of trying, and you still think you’re innocent. HOLD up, hopeless as ever. Its been 2 years and now I’m sick of trying, and you still think you’re innocent. THAT YOU… DID…. NOTHING.
Track Name: Desperado
Winter’s home, and summer must have died or forgot to come, a dinner date in France that went far too long, and empty bottles of red (wine) scattered in the sun, and no one left to fend off the Cold.... Cold and you never go home.... And all I want is to be free from your hold... Cold... Home... Home.... That weather man’s a liar, bastard motherfucker he sits ship in his Hollywood home making predictions and in a better world, this never would have happened with my view the coast.... Bury my toes in the sand and oil, I will bury my toes in the sand and oil, I will bury my toes in the sand and oil with my dreams of growing old on the gulf.... Cold.... Cold and you never go home.... And all I want is to be free from your hold... Cold... Home... Home....
Track Name: Shit Town Blues
Give in my resignation, I am leaving soon. I am not coming back. Don’t come looking for me. Where’d all your messages go, in the dead of the night? Where did insights go? They were buried right in the snow. Some things they stay the same, there is no reasoning with them and all that’s left is all the promises they made a long ago. Some people never change stuck on their bikes pedaling hard, exhausted with their gears on everlasting mediocrity. Oh no it’s not like you it’s not like me to fall like that so I’ll assure you all the promises we made will get done. Suddenly I’m forever missed like I haven’t been around. Where did your insights go? They were buried right in the snow. Buckle up and start the ignition I am leaving soon. I am not coming back. Don’t come looking for me. Some things they stay the same, there is no reasoning with them and all that’s left is all the promises they made a long ago. Some people never change stuck on their bikes pedaling hard, exhausted with their gears on everlasting mediocrity. Oh no it’s not like you it’s not like me to fall like that so I’ll assure you all the promises we made will get done.
Track Name: Rum
Drunk and still drinking, the oil slicks into the snow. My heart may stop beating, but it’s the only constant we know. I like you better with rum, I like it better when you don’t come home, I like you better with rum, And when you’re out of town I’m finding out… That you’re this town’s drunk. Drunk and still drinking, unhealthy routines to habit, unstable and controlling, 23-year-old alcoholic. With just those couple friends from high school, roommates and half the own wants in your pants… And those who stuck around are too afraid to leave, intimidated or just pretend to care… Care… CARE!!!! They said. I like you better with rum, I like it better when you don’t come home, I like you better with rum, and when you’re out of town I’m finding out… That you’re this town’s whore.
Track Name: This State's Not Safe
Last night’s mistakes, caught up in, a mess on the interstate. Interstate. You followed me, to the songs played, that night on the interstate. This state’s not safe. We tried so hard… Not to sing along. Nothing was taken from the….. Lessons learned. You spoke to me, you spoke softly, and everything you said was me. Reading me. Am I really, this transparent or do you just really know me? Honestly? We tried so hard… Not to sing along. Nothing was taken from the….. Lessons learned
Track Name: Mi Otro Yo
Are you think of me? Are you thinking of something? Say something, say anything. Am I consistent? Consistently so far removed from the bullshit drama of dead end politics? Give me something... Something to work with.... Give me something... Something to work with... I could be unoriginal. I could be so unoriginal. Turn all my idols to obsessions I know, when I die they’ll just remix, when I die they’ll just remix. And they’ll sell it for the label (and) skim the profit off the top.... Bop shoo bop shoo bop. Bop shoo bop shoo bop. Bop shoo bop shoo bop (x3).
Track Name: Shake Them Surfer Titties
Stop looking at the floor you know that you’re better than them. Everyone says the same thing and they do it just to get under your skin. For no reason... No real reason... For no reason... No Real reason... I don’t want to be the same thing you did to this town last year. I don’t want to whore myself out. I don’t want to be caught down there by myself. Singing “this happens all the time” woah oh oh... “this happens all the time” woah oh oh. For no reason... No real reason... For no reason... No Real reason
Track Name: Ali-1
A person with tact would have forgotten this dream, would have backed up slowly like the creature was big, with claws and teeth… for sinking deep into the meat, I lay belly up in front of it. I wont go so far a to say I’m those things you said, and I’d rather prefer you’ll think about me instead. I’ve got these stories and campfires and those times that we spent or that time we almost kissed in your bed but we didn’t? Young… and stupid… and restless ambitious and every new challenge was opportunistic, I couldn’t write you a wedding song, (because) I was hoping one day maybe you’d take me for your own. You’re doing fine in yours and I’m doing FINE in mine, we’ve been away, separated by country and its obvious, hopeless I don’t know why it stays, its because I think of you this way, do you think of me this way? I wanted to write…. You something you hadn’t heard yet... Something someone else wrote…. In some other tone or cadence GOD DAMN I cant believe that you’d ask me this question? I could only hope to hold up to… that standard. Young… and stupid… and restless ambitious and every new challenge was opportunistic, I couldn’t write you a wedding song, (because) I was hoping one day maybe you’d take me for your own.
Track Name: Variables
I swam so far in the ocean deep so seemingly endless. I chanced all of the variables because they seemed just so unimportant. I damn near lost myself chasing after those silhouettes. But I’m damn sure I’d re-trace my steps and I’d do it all over again…. Jump... Fucking jump... Just jump... Just jump. Finally people care enough to see it in the basement. They laugh and drink and sing along and no one cares about image (but) they say that every situation is just so... Jump... Fucking jump... Just jump... Just jump.
Track Name: Square-1
He went from job to job just… trying to make a living without tom but… Arizona… was drying him up and his skin, his sweat; he just can’t get enough of the ocean. Well he got fired again this Thursday. Another dead end job had nothing more for him. Well hope comes on a plane on Friday. They’ll share the nights together just re-affirming having done… And said... those things that… I did… We owe him the credit. If its not academics, procrastination took precedence over… What I was supposed to be doing. Its not like it matters because I’m ahead of the game. And no one’s holding me accountable for having done... And said... those things that… I did… They owe me nothing. Square 1… cop out leave me alone… tore the paint off the walls…. Why don’t you try and just finish something for once? Square 1 (give up, your dreams are pathetic) Cop out leave me alone (never more than unrealistic) Tore the paint off the walls (you’re just like them, you’ll never be nothing) Why don’t you try and just finish something for once (just like them, never nothing) Square 1.
Track Name: King Crab
I don’t know how to say this I cant cleverly word this, I am no stranger to setbacks, no stranger to second best, but cancer is bleeding all the lines of all the idols of our time. Woah!... Hey! The stem cell... Hey! (it’s) So useful. Count us in the trillions, those affected by cancer, placing all our cards, bets and hope on advances in modern medicine... advances in modern medicine. Woah!
Track Name: Not Me
Barbara wasn’t like them and they didn’t want to know her. She read all the books, they had all the stories read to them. If only college had come so much sooner but Barbara wasn’t like them and they didn’t want to know her. Love… is a brick…. Is a broken window, message strapped to it. I’M NOT UP SET… I’M NOT LIKE THEM. Love…. Is a brick… is a broken bottle…. LA riot yeah. I’M NOT UPSET… IM NOT LIKE THEM
Track Name: Without You
I hated when you’d call me at home, when I’m not alone, when I’m not so bold. But every single thing that you do, reminds me of you, it’s tailgating me. That’s why I’ve had enough of you. I’ve started something new. I’ve turned myself around without you. And I am sick of all the lies. The tossing and the turning, at night when I’m asleep without you. I’d drive a thousand miles towards the sea. Where I cant find you, and you cant see me. But every single thing that you do, reminds me of you, its tailgating me. That’s why I’ve had enough of you. I’ve started something new. I’ve turned myself around without you. And I am sick of all the lies. The tossing and the turning. At night when I’m asleep without you. Looking on to red horizons… I shut you out... You’re standing there… Trying to forget the moments... I block you out... You come back in… Trying to murder those moments...… I shut you out…. You’re standing there... But every single thing that you do, reminds me of you, its tailgating me. But every single thing that you do, reminds me of you, its tailgating me.
Track Name: Toothbrushes Are Like A Promise
Missed call. A missed communication of the heart, just like this song, was written for... someone’s and not just one but that’s not to say that I’m not afraid, I’m just impartial to the way you run... And at the distances we took the same advice... and I found myself, listening to someone else’s breathing patterns on through the night. Surprised eyes wide, why are you surprised when you never write or took the time to say, you wanted out of my life. Its not right, that we sleep apart at night. Its not right, that your toothbrush isn’t next to mine.
Its not right, that we sleep apart at night. Its not right, that your toothbrush isn’t next to mine. This move alone is for the better, you would have hated it here. You would have hated the weather. And what a waste of time, knowing I... Would have changed my whole life! Its not right, that we sleep apart at night. Its not right, that your toothbrush isn’t next to mine. Its not right, that we sleep apart at night. Its not right, that your toothbrush isn’t next to mine. Its not right, that we sleep apart at night. But your toothbrush seems more comfortable not next to mine. Its not right its not right its not right its not right its not right...
