Sometimes I write to fill my heart Every time I do, it all drains out Sometimes I walk on broken glass Every time I do, it doesn't last Sometimes I blow up balloons Every time I do, they pop - just like you Sometimes I chase the life I want And I ask myself, is it worth it?
2.
I’m twenty years old now Shit, wait, I’m twenty-one God, oh man, how used to be so young I’m going back home tonight Shit, wait, the other home God, oh man, how we used to have one home And we’re going someplace nice Together We’re going someplace nice With perfect weather And we’ll go someplace nice Whenever, forever Let’s go someplace nice I’m sure sleeping mighty tight Shit, no wait, I mean ‘til six at night God, oh man, how we used to see sunlight I watch your eyes on me Shit, no wait, it’s those legs I see God, oh man, how they stretch on endlessly As we’re going someplace nice Together As we’re going someplace nice With perfect weather And we’ll go someplace nice Whenever, forever Let’s go someplace

vicarious me 03:05
I’ve been a vegetable Since you left And I skipped the spectacle Of new friends I live with electricals And physics And I miss the pedestal Where you sit I know I don’t care for vicarious me But I don’t like me, you’re who I’d much rather be
4.
No more worryin’ ‘bout plans this afternoon No more seein’ myself through pictures taken by you We’re all just long-lost nephews, hungry and beggin’ for food No more thinkin’ I’m special, I’m just another shithead to sue My identity means nothing, so why do I seem to care? My identity means nothing, so why don’t I pick a more interesting one? A more lively one A more interesting one One I want to be I think I’m gonna be like, I’m gonna speak like actors in the Western movies I think I’m gonna drink like, then I’m gonna fight like actors in the Western movies I think I’m gonna giddy-up, then I’m gonna ante-up just like in the Western movies I think I’m gonna draw my gun, I’m gonna duel someone like in the Western movies No one’s gonna bother me much anymore
5.
broken glass 03:30
I’m resting my head on broken glass The bleeding is surely gonna last And as I lay with grace, I like my current place I bleed with a smile on my face Writing to stop the bloody sting but singing, it doesn’t mean a thing Relief from the pain - a blade against the grain No blood flowing to the brain My future is sort of like snow I sit back and watch it all go This life is all I’ve known, I cast a broken bone As the glass, turns my head to stone The people who tell me what to do They seem like they haven’t got a clue and over me they stand, try to lend a helping hand I laugh and start another band
6.
anagrams 03:59
Everyday we speak the same Everyday we think the same Everyday we flock the same Everyday we go insane Today I need to do something different But nothing new So I write anagrams on my forehead Rearrange my thoughts And stay the same Everyday we act the same Everyday we dream the same Everyday we seem the same Everyday we stay insane Anode deity do to meshing to referred tin Buttoning when Wise trio a mangos ran frayed home Enrage rare sought myth Ad antsy sea them It’s the only way for me to change It’s the only way for me to stay the same Everyday we’ll change the same Everyday we’ll change our name Everyday we’ll ignore the pain Everyday will be insane

cold goodbye 01:50
8.
I can’t support my head So it drags on the ground Collecting dust I’m tryna clean it out And from this view I can’t see much at all So I rest my head And wait for you Good morning, sleep tight Close your curtains - sleep away the daylight I need a new world Where things can change ‘Cause the thoughts I give Are all the same And it feels so good When you cut my head off No thoughts at all No thoughts at all Good morning, sleep tight Close your curtains - sleep away the daylight
9.
I’d like to walk you home Tonight, we’ll be alone Oh, what a bad idea that is I prefer to walk alone with gals And tell them everything Two bright faces in the crowd Believe in comforting themselves Would you care to walk with me? I do hate saying please But it’s late and sure scary out there I prefer to walk alone with gals And tell them everything Two bright faces in the crowd Believe in comforting themselves I know that walkin’ with gals alone just isn’t smart But it keeps me aware that some things are miraculous And I know walking home with you might activate my heart But I prefer to walk alone and tell gals everything Yes, I know it’s my fault when things don’t turn out as they should Still: I think and I am, Descartes would be so proud of me
10.
We’re all as broken as can be I say we ‘cause I know there’s more of me But we’re already famous ‘Cause God’s got warning signs of us Yeah, we’re already famous ‘Cause Satan’s got monuments of us For every afternoon Forever aftermath For every afterthought Forever after words We’re already famous The local sheriff recognizes us For every afternoon Forever aftermath For every afterthought Forever after words

my brother 01:57
My brother worked all day But I only see him partying That’s what I wanna see Brother, believe me My brother feels good tonight But I only ever see him late at night That’s what I wanna see Brother, comfort me Am I more like you than you are me? Does your heart weep as peacefully as I do? My brother feels good tonight But I only ever see him late at night That’s what I wanna see Brother, please My brother est mon ami Il est mon autre reflexion That’s French honey So won’t you come to me? Am I more like you than you are me? Does your heart weep as peacefully as I do?

fishing 02:45
Let’s go fishing for trout today Drop these words we’re waiting to display And say: “It’s the weekend! So let’s take our gun-shaped hands Off our heads And wrap them around fishing poles” Let’s go fishing for compliments Comb our hair and think we’re better yet And let’’s Forget your she There’s plenty other fish in the sea Waiting to swim to you You just need the right bait Yeah, you do Don’t go fishing with people that you hate It’s always best to isolate The better things in life

No sleep in your dreams But the night breaks so so so subtly Do you see White fences cracked alongside sidewalks With children's chalk Outlining sorry saps with empty thoughts And bullets for brains Does this make me insane? Moan, if need be scream Endearing lust waits so so so silently Can it be? My propensities alongside sidewalks Replace children’s chalk And sorry sap thoughts I got bullets for brains Does this make me insane? Or just plain crazy? Rambling sideways with Thoughts of sidewalks alongside me Just lying there helplessly, thoughtlessly thinking Laughing, smiling Dreaming Of you And of this city I’ve run to Where the building rise higher But are heavier still And sinking And sinking And this city keeps drinking From bomb threats in bathroom stalls To gunshots orbiting city hall This plea has only grown stronger now that I live within its spell Yet my neighbors say hi to me now And it seems honest and proud And the music stays loud But the sirens stay louder and prouder Protecting and serving these littered streets Is this the city plea? To keep the dream, despite what you see? To continue to believe as you bleed? And is this place really where I’m meant to be? And is this place really Where I long to be? I don’t know Maybe
14.
I know we built ourselves a concrete wall And I know it takes a lot more to fall I know I don’t need you to breathe But that place right between your arms Is where I long to be
15.
is 01:13
16.
I know I can barely play guitar And honey, I cannot sing at all I know my presence isn’t strong But I’m gonna keep writing music It’s just where I belong
17.
Sometimes I fall on my face And every time I do I will thank you Sometimes I watch the sea waves breaks And every time I do I will see you Sometimes I follow you in the cold And every time I do I will stay warm inside you Sometimes I notice you gettin’ old And I’ll ask you, my darling “Was it worth it?” But I know you know that I know Everything is always worth it As long as you’re not too proud As long as you’re not too loud Everything is always worth it!
