Track Name: Big Chill
i've been listening to punk music
and some other shit i never got into
but when you're far away
what else can i say...it really gets to you

this is the time that we should be rebelling
but i'm on the couch again in my underwear

i've been hanging out in basements
with some new friends that i just met
and they like the way i sing

get loud when i get loud, then we quiet down
i'm starting to like this scene

this is the time that we should be rebelling
but i'm in my underwear, i'm on the couch again

i'm not doing anything
Track Name: CATFISH
i think you should write a checklist
to document your experience

cause i doubt you'll figure it out
by the end of the day
what is reality?

do you believe
everything that you see?
what you see on TV
do you hear what they say?

all of this talk
of different dimensions and
nothing is real
i guess it's all fake

nothing makes sense
anyways anyways
anyways anyways
anyways anyways

do you believe
everything that you see?
what you see on TV
do you hear what they say?
Track Name: Watching MTV In Hell
we don't want
someone who's
trying for
the local news

you think you're hot shit
but you're nothing
thinking this big
is hardly something

but what you don't get
is that we're used to it
trying on pants
that never seem to fit

we don't want
someone who's
trying for
the local news

SEE YOU IN HELL
WATCHING MTV
NINETIES RERUN SHOWS
FUCK THE RADIO

we don't want
someone who's
trying for
the local news
Track Name: Full House
I know you’re home, but I’m never there
I try so bad. My ice is cracked.

This winter I’ll try something new
Cant stand this empty house without you
This winter I’ll try something new
Fire burns better when I burning with you

I know it’s hard to do it all
Time slips by and snow, it falls

This winter I’ll try something new
Can’t stand this empty house without you
This winter I’ll try something new
Fire burns better when I’m burning with you

This winter I’ll try something new
Burn down this empty house without you
This winter I’ll try something new
Fire burns better when I’m burning for you

Burning for you (x3)
Track Name: You Burned My Mac N' Cheese
i wasn't trying to be a jerk
i just sounded like a jerk
i know

try to live with myself
without being selfless
try to live in the moment
without repeating my mistakes (i know, i know, i know...)

i think i'm doing my best
but sometimes, it's not enough

we've had this fight before
twice in real life and ten times in my head
can't changed what i did, just what i'll do
why can't i say things right? (i know, i know, i know...)

i think i'm doing my best
but i couldn't find the words to say

i'm sorry.
Track Name: Sledding Hill
if things were simple like my sledding hill
we'd be cold and dark and wet, full of adventure

if nights were as long as my winters dream
we could be anything together, so perfectly just you and me

if memories fade like my breath in the air,
will i pretend to be better?
i left my mittens in your glove compartment
and now my hands are growing cold, oh no no no

snow covered hearts in the meadow, waiting for the sun to turn blue
maybe i'll build a snowman, maybe she'll be a woman
who's just like you

if nights were as long as my winters dream
we could be anything that we want to
i left my mittens in your glove compartment
and now my face is growing long, where do i belong?

snow covered hearts in the meadow, waiting for the sun to turn blue
maybe i'll build a snowman, maybe she'll be a woman
who's just like you

maybe i'll just getting old
maybe i'm just growing cold
to think that i'd be better

snow covered hearts in the meadow, waiting for the sun to turn blue
maybe i'll build a snowman, maybe she'll be a woman
who's just like you (SHE"S JUST LIKE YOU)

she'll never be you
Track Name: Saw A Ghost
saw a ghost last night
hoping we could find
comfort in seeing them again

they're gone, we just have to accept it
and they're not coming back

i think it was the greeks that once said
"everything good's already dead
and if i die it will come alive again"

they're gone, we just have to accept it
and there not coming back
Track Name: I Welcome Death
everybody's living for something
never thinking bout tomorrow
always living for today
always living on borrowed time

everybody wants to live forever
everybody wants to rule the world
everybody's always thinking about tomorrow
always living on borrowed time

if there's one thing I have learned from this world
if there's one thing I have learned

don't talk to strangers
fall asleep with the lights on
leave home with your coat zipped
don't fall in love

everybody's living for something
always thinking bout tomorrow
always living for today
always living on borrowed time

if there's one thing I have learned from this world
if there's one thing I have learned

don't talk to strangers
fall asleep with the lights on
leave home with your coat zipped
don't fall in love

take a lonely walk through park
take what is given you
take joy in the little things
don't be afraid

don't talk to strangers
fall asleep with the lights on
leave home with your coat zipped
don't fall in love (DON'T FALL IN LOVE)
Track Name: Mom, Can I Smoke Cigarettes?
she walked into the room
like you'd been there before
i was scared to ask her name
i was afraid of sounding lame

three months later i saw you again
hanging out in the same basement
i think you added me on facebook
i think you read my mind

i quit smoking just to pick up something new
i'm addicted to hanging out with you

didn't take long to get a start
you're like nicotine for my heart
used to smoke three packs a day
used to be worse in every fucking way
