Track Name: Across the Water
Who left that little light on?
I thought that you were somebody else
You're the girl who dreams of diamond rings
And I'm the boy who just doesn't sleep
But we're not quite sure what that means yet

A light blinks across the water
I thought of that book you read
Of the man who longed for the love that he'd lost
And how mine was right there with me
But at the time I just couldn't see it, yeah

You cut me off
You cut me off
It's not your fault
It's not your fault

Fly with me south for the winter
You're a bird you just didn't know it
But the airlines are such a pain these days
And it's cheaper so it seems
If you just go and use your wings

I don't know if you've got it in you
I don't know if I care
All I know is that I love to hear you talk
And I love to hear you scream
From the tops of all your trees, yeah

You cut me off
You cut me off
It's not your fault
It's not your fault

Oh, there is nothing to do here
Oh, there is nothing to do here
Oh, there is nothing to do here
Oh, there is nothing to do without you here

You cut me off
You cut me off
It's not your fault
It's not your fault
Track Name: The Psychologist
Well girl, let’s make some dinner plans
She calls her group of lady friends
I’ll be the one man band, no one can hold my hand
Cause I’m using both my hands
Well I’m stuck here, drowned in girlish smells
Who thought this could become my hell

I’ve got these ho’s to my left, and ho’s to my right
Got all the girls looking cause I’m with ladies night
Whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, oh

And oh I must be going crazy
I’ve got two too many girls on all my extremities

And I start the arguments
I’m a psychologist, don’t you think so?
Well oh, oh, please, it’s so flattering
All of your blabbering, you’d find me royal too
Or am I blind, I’m blind to all my pride
I thought I glued my eyes open wide
So can we give up the fight, I think I just might
Go show to the young how to get back to life
Whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, oh

And oh I must be a little mixed up when the world takes me
It takes me incompatibly
And I, will fight bad mix by getting by
I will fight bad mix with fighting cries

And every single day that I get away from you and our
Break, my heart grows with every party
And all the lovely voices
How they are right on time
My mind begins to shine

They touch me baby
Don’t it drive you crazy

One, two, what you gonna do
Got all the right things, they’re right in front of you
And it’s the very same things that separate the youth
That yield strength from old age where lies become the truth
And my demons
They, they like to show
I just gotta keep them low
I just gotta keep them low

So girl, when you make our dinner plans
You’ll hold me in higher demand
Track Name: These Inevitable Insanities
I've got ghosts in my chest screaming
Kid you're out of time
The skies are ignoring the seasons
They've got colder intentions in mind
In mind...

The crows are condemned to the murder singing
"We live our lives on the line!
And we know your health is fading, we're waiting,
Outside your windows at night"
At night...

I moved to Southern California
To turn all my blues into gold
But I couldn't keep up with all of the motions
So I took the train alone
All alone...

I never asked for these twelve hour friendships
They're draining my arms in the night
And these birds out my window they're creeping, they're creeping,
Singing all the while...

"On the line, on the line, we live our lives, on the line
On the line, on the line, we live our lives, on the line"
Track Name: Mistakes!
Mistakes find me with some credit
New friends killing all the negative
And I’ve got none, I’m stable

Oh Mom, wishing I could say it
But you gotta go and listen to my every word
I love you

And if this feeling stays,
Stop the “if’s” I want it every single day
I’ll find my crew, but where are Ricky and Paul?
I gotta say that the crew...
We’re missing you

New friends, I call em’ again
And the company comes through
You’re crushing my expectations

And there’s something said about being nice
A sweet, sweet girl has come
To rotate the world, and slow down my whirl

And if this feeling stays
I will keep it 'til it burns out like a flame
But I bet you would come round, and light up my night
But don’t leave or I’m dead
Can we make some plans?

Oh if this feeling stays
I’ll keep it with a smile on my face
So put all your money on me

Cause I’m doing the things
I’m doing the things
I’m doing the things
Yeah I’m doing the things

Mistakes, find me on a ferris wheel,
Oh shit, what the fuck?
Didn’t you say that you were...

Yeah there’s something said about being nice
A sweet, sweet girl has come
And fixed up my whirl
And tilted my axis

And if this feeling stays
I will keep it til’ it burns out like a flame
But I bet you would come round
And light up my night
But don’t leave or I’m dead
We can make some plans

Oh if this feeling stays
I’ll fight it if it’s leading me away
From kindness, and trying
To court all the girls

That I think have good taste
Or just taste good
Or just taste good
Yeah you just taste good
Track Name: Astronauts
My Thursday starts out with me alone, again
And if I had my way, we'd be in love
I look right back on it
I think if had twice the brain I'd solve it
But now I'm left dissecting half
I'm in the darkest places
And all I really want is familiar faces

So I look to the sky for answers
And no one answers
I look to the sky to check the rafters
To check the rafters

I walk an empty street, just me
I pray for shadows please, company
My only friend, on my side
I've come to conclusions
And in the end all I show are contusions
So I will rest, my doctor says
I'll end in affluence
My injuries heal into congruence

So I look to the sky for answers, oh an answer
And mister sky breathes love
In myself so I can make it through the day
Rise above the blackend
And fly above the sidewalks
And we'll forget the madness as we fly

High beyond it each new day
Cast the rockets off
Cause we're the astronauts
Track Name: The Break and the Wake
I took a plane
Over the sea to fine
I don't need anything
Beleaguered by the synapse and sighs

The bursts blasts our ears
From the break and the wake of relationships
Complications, oh what a time
All the love in my life is dying

And all my trust
It goes with showing
That nothing's golden
Our bonds our stolen away
Drifting away with the waves

The burst blasts our ears
From the break and the wake of relationships
Constellations fade in the sky
Cause the love in my life
Is dead
Track Name: The Civil War
The civil war has broken out in me
And now I must choose a side
I found that Cali's divided
Into a wicked north and a south piece
And how I'd like to reside
And fight for southern's side
(With all the lovely sunlight)

Now with that all clear
I'll wrap up here
I just need motivation
To separate me from the terrible things around here

And I'm glad I'm alive
Cause all my friends know
This town could suck the life out of me
It thins out my blood
And beats up my head
So I will try out another instead

I migrate and think the birds are so damn blessed
To change their home as they please
And come and go with the seasons
(With all the lovely sunlight)

Now with that all clear
I'll wrap up here
I just need proper notice to such good employment
And I'll just hit the road
Through the mountain side
In the mid-day I drive

And I'm just glad I'm alive
Cause all my friends know
This town could suck the life out of me
It thins out my blood
And beats up my head
So I will try out another instead

And you, my baby you do
You seemed to get me
And I thought I got you too
But you got me to move
And now I'm here alone
You go and do it on your own

But I'm not standing here alone
You go and do it on your own
But I'm not standing here alone, no

And I'm just glad I'm alive
Cause all my friends know
This town could suck the life out of me
It thins out my blood
And beats up my head
So I will try out another instead
Track Name: Halloween
I sneak around in my old home town
It's colder than I remember in November
But nothing can be worse than last year at this time
I'm just happy to be with all my friends

I wrote you a letter last night to say it's over
And the worst part is I don't think that you'll mind
And there's so many girls in this town who I don't want to see
But there's one sea that I would kill to cross tonight

Where was I when you were born?
Where was I when you first came to this city?
Where were you when they told you for the first time?
Where were you when you found out that I was dead? ...but I'm not dead

I wrote you a letter last night to say it's over
And the worst part is I don't think that you'll care
And there's so many girls in this town who I don't want to see
But there's one sea that I would cross but I don't dare

(ohh la la)
If you could save me for your rainy days
Just keep me with you always
I'm not asking of you anything
Just to keep my with you always

You were mine and I was yours
One week baby that's all we'll ever know
You never know...

I'll chase the shots with a lonely kiss
I'll go to bed with someone who I don't know
You'd never know

I wrote you a letter last night to say it's over
And the worst part is I don't think that you'll mind
And there's so many girls in this town who I don't want to see
But there's one sea that I would kill to cross tonight
Track Name: Rules in a Knife Fight
I don't even know you
You've become a stranger
The salt in my eyes
And the bottom of my drink

Left me for another
Found a new lover
You know I'll make a scene
But it ends the same

You let me know
That you had let me go
When you took my money
Down to Mexico

When you find a new man
Be sure to tell him
You're gonna up and run
With his love someday
Track Name: Summer Ends Some Things
Oh my life is like this story world
Where I fight the thought to have a girl
And I'd like to get through this sentence to finish the chapter
Cause the next is blacker

(Whoa, oh)

If I was a book maybe then you'd look, whoa
Because you focus your eyes downwards all the time
Please babe, my talking is supposed to get attention
Please don't let this be the last time
I've got to live it up with all the time...

I get, we get, we get it, I get it
(Whoa, oh)

And I can't attach to the chances given
It's just like I am icy-smitten, yeah
Oh, yeah

It's like adeptness glides right off me
Sometimes I just gotta think
I gotta think

Let's say
(It's such a damaged countdown)
for a second maybe I am scared
(The Summer ends some things)
The Summer ends some things
Cause I think
(Even though I'm sun-kissed)
With a love attaching onto me

I can't attach to the chances given
It's just like I am icy-smitten
Like active learning's overridden

I can't attach to the chances given
(And I know that I will just love your taste)
It's just like I am icy-smitten
(Even more for the time and space...)
Like active learning's overridden
(...between)
Track Name: The Beginning and the End
I'm sorting through the things I do
When you're not here
And this list is despicable

My eyes are squares from a stagnant glare
Of lamps so bright there's millions in hiding
Behind the LCD of my friendly television

And over there she's without a care
Oh, how she needs to drink away her graveness
From the stress of college, and knowledge, and flawlessness

I met you there
In the Autumn air at half past five
The sun was sinking in the sky

Through old shadows and the store front glow
Do you feel like I do?
Are you talking to a stranger?
With all the weight of eyes and a love that we had left behind

I over sleep
It just gets me closer to Saturday
She's coming back Saturday

You see I write the songs sometimes to pass all the tasteless time
The senseless kiss and love just are missing from a wallowed, hollowed boy
All the testing brings an echo
(An echo)

I'm looking for the things that I miss the most
Way on past the hills and down those country roads
Some would say I'm crazy to try and stop the world
Sing it to me like an echo
(An echo)

This place is small and damn to big for me
All alone I swear the walls they talk to me
Creak uneasily and echo
(An echo)

You'll never find your future in the past
Keep me breathing while the years go stumbling past
Ringing through me like an echo
(An echo)
