Track Name: SERIOUS THINGS ARE STUPID
I came here alone
And I plan to leave that way
But I find comfort in
All of the things you say
My heart unthawed
And my brain unstalled
Took time to comprehend
Oh I made it, I made it, I made it, I made it
And we’re both prone to misery
But you still get drunk
And wanna hang out with me
And I’m at my best
When I’m sleeping alone
It’s funny how time stops
And starts on its own
I came here alone
And I plan to leave that way
But I still find comfort in
All the things you say, when you say them
Wanna hear you say
That you came here alone
And you won’t leave that way
That you came here alone
And you wanna change your ways
You won’t change your ways
Track Name: BLACK HILLS
Intellectually rigorous with the things that make us feel
We tell ourselves that we’re alright
But it’s the numbness that we feel
Bring me back to those good days
I was fine with my old ways
And the prisoners still stay, the prisoners still stay
The prisoners still stay, long after the guards went away
Let me run in the Black Hills
Let me go on my free will
Let me run in the Black Hills
Let me go on my free will
Self-righteous sensibility
Well, your forefathers never founded me
And it’s the same level of a different game
Well, I’ve got ten gods but my devil’s the same
So you can rot in those badlands
I was fine with my own hands
Let ‘em rot in those badlands
I was fine with my own hands
The prisoners still stay, the prisoners still stay
The prisoners still stay, long after the guards went away
Let me run in the Black Hills
Let me go on my free will
Track Name: DIRTY LAUNDRY
Well I switched back from the yellow to the orange pack
And you shaved your beard, just to sit and watch it grow back
It’s funny the things we find comfort in
It’s funny the things that make us feel again
I still want you in a bad way
I wanna see you on your bad days
Oh I want you in the worst ways
I want you in the worst ways, yeah
I’ll lay here with my endless guilt
And you’ll force photos of the life you built
Enough to make you feel better
It’s not enough to make you feel better
I still want you in a bad way
I wanna see you on your bad days
Oh I never needed you anyway
I never needed you anyway
To me you are a Laundromat
Oh, I picture you like that
Trying to get clean again
Well, keep spinning, keep spinning, my friend
To me you are a Laundromat
Oh, I picture you like that
Trying to get clean again
Well, keep spinning, keep spinning, my friend
Track Name: ANIMAL
I’ll ride west for you
If that’s what you need me to do for you
But now you’re talking silly
You’re looking dizzy, aren’t you
I watch you prey, I watch you hunt
I watch you gather, til you got what you want
You got me feeling like an animal
I wash your freckles, they don’t fade away
I watch you suffer, it’s the human way
You got me feeling like an animal
Track Name: MOUNTAIN KIDS
Oh all the mountain kids, are swimming in the lake
They’re off getting lost again, taking what they take
Me, I stand defeated
I lost, and I’ve retreated to the lake, from the lake
But you, you got so small
But you, you got so small again
You, you threw it all away, yeah
And I’ve lost chapters from the dizziest of nights
And I find comfort in the few familiar eyes that got away
But you, you got so small
But you, you got so small again
You, you threw it all away, yeah
On to the impossible conversation
You’re mad I left, I’m mad you stayed
Forgive me for the impossible conversation
You’re mad I left, well I’m mad you stayed
Oh all the mountain kids, still swimming away
Track Name: MADAME B
And we, we’re living dangerously
All the cards are reversed for me
And I’m holding two swords
And I’m driving down memorial lane
And I pause as I see your name
But I’m only the fool
And my weary heart is a flipped King of Cups
And I emptied out, as he filled them up
And I swore right there on my father’s eyes
That I would never be compromised
But in a dream, she came to me
The archetype of femininity
And she took my hand, and walked me home
And said, girl, you’re better on your own
So tell me where my moon lies
Tell me, is there strength behind my eyes
Tell me where my moon lies
Tell me, is there strength behind my eyes
And we, we’re living dangerously
All the cards are reversed for me
And I’m holding two swords
Track Name: SCOTT, GET THE VAN, I’M MOVING
The hardest part of moving out, is I remember moving in
The hardest part of breaking my fall, is I am nothing but skin
How gently time disposed us
Separate boxes fill the car
Both bracing for an impact
But it never came at all
Tell me can you feel it at all
Cause I got nothing within
Tell me am I writing you off
Cause I was living in sin, I was living in sin
We find solace in the moments
They’re either too short or too long
And I still miss you in the morning
But wake up to find that you’re still gone
The hardest part of moving out, is I remember moving in
Track Name: FAVORITE THINGS
What’s your favorite color
Do you remember when you realized
What’s your favorite summer
Do you remember how it crystallized
Now you’re in love with the world
As long as you’re alive
In love with it all
As long as you survive
In love with the world
Once you close your eyes enough
What’s your favorite song
Do you remember how it pierced your ears
And those memories
How they resonate for years
Now I’m in love with the world
As long as you’re alive
In love with it all
As long as you survive
In love with the world
Once I close my eyes enough
Will you hold your breath
Will you do your best
Will you hold your breath
Will you do your best
Now we’re in love with the world
As long as we’re alive
In love with it all
As long as we survive
In love with the world
Once we close our eyes enough
Track Name: HOT DAD CALENDAR
There’s a difference between
The things that we say and we mean
So take a deep breath
Breathe in through your chest
And you’re lying face-first on your mother’s floor
Saying “oh, dear god, what’d you do that for?”
Now you’re lying face-first on your father’s floor
Saying “oh, dear god, what’d you do that for?”
You’re trying to be brave
And you’ve been brave before
I’ll help you clean out your basement
And fall asleep on your floor
And I know you really wanna make it out alive
And I know you really wanna make it out alive
And I know you really wanna make it out
There’ll be a clash
Between you, and the you that’s staring back
But kid, you’ll be okay
You’ll get better with age
And kid, you’ll be okay
You’ll get better with age
Remember that you are a snail
In every pinch
Your shell may get heady
But you’ll push through every inch
And I know you really wanna make it out alive
And I know you really wanna make it out alive
And I know you really wanna make it out
And I know you’re really gonna make it out
Track Name: BUSY BRAIN
It started kicking, inside my busy brain
It’s so anxiety-driven
Ten years, it’s still the same
But there’s nothing to fear here
I am always okay
There’s nothing to fear here
It’s the weight of my busy brain
I felt me slipping
Back to all of my weird ways
Avoiding coffee, or parties
And never taking subways
But there’s nothing to fear here
I am always okay
There’s nothing to fear here
It’s the weight of my busy brain
It’s the weight of my busy brain
I don’t wanna change for the world
I want the world to change for me
I don’t wanna change for the world
Cause I feel it differently
It started kicking, inside my busy brain
It’s so anxiety-driven
Ten years, it’s still the same
Track Name: SOUTH PHILLY
I fall asleep to the sound of violence
And I wake up to the sound of sirens
And you, and your missing parts
And you, with your dreams in jars
Riding south, I can’t see the northern lights
Or the apathy we share
On those drunken summer nights
Just me, with my dreams in jars
Poor me, with my missing parts
I watch you daydream about God
Are you daydreaming still
Watch you daydream about God
Are you daydreaming still
But what has he done for you?

I fall asleep to the sounds
