Track Name: The Upside
Trying not what I'm used to
This time I'll abstain my telephone
So my fingers won't obey, anyway

Finding courses to act for another night
Anything for the broken brain
Take to the streets in another way
I go to best friend's girl's house
And this lady, Haley's all under a hat
If we can talk for a while
She can break me down
And she'll find...

We're all just kids out looking for our own piece of mind
With every damn mouth telling us we'll never be fine
And so I'll scream
And sometimes all you got is your mom on your side
When you go back to the chains from where you used to reside
I awake (in my sleep)
I'm awake (i still dream)
And it's always me
On my God damn knees

Oh, Haley's so drunk
No way she'll remember
The twenty-second of '04 November
But maybe I will have these problems too
And drink like a fish that's over fed at the zoo
And if it seems to be the case whereas
I stay inside on rainy nights not seeing you

Do not fall
It's not your fault
So with this shootout, let's draw

We're all just kids out looking for our own piece of mind
With every damn mouth telling us we'll never be fine
And so I'll scream
And sometimes all you got is your mom on your side
When you go back to the chains from where you used to reside
There's no wake (in my sleep)
When I wake (I still dream)
And it's always me
On my God damn knees

And it's always me
On my god damn knees
Where's the upside please?
She's me disease

But oh no, here it comes around again
And I can only wonder what i do
To cause such complications and issues
(oh no, oh no)
Okay I said it, what to do
I should be hung dead for the youth

(I'm careless and frightened, and kind of excited)

So why you gonna kill me girl
Well I know I keep up this damn town
By singing for the night
And I felt I'd fall into bad ways
So I'll keep out of sight
Ears are bleeding from headphones beating
No, I'll never go unhook myself from my computer screen
No, this console's got me cooking
Like an addict, we crave these things

So Haley's not coming back, not for nothing
And even if I could make up for something
She'd still be right to hate me

We're all just kids out looking for our own piece of mind
With every damn mouth telling us we'll never be fine
And so I'll sing
And sometimes all you got is your mom on your side
When you go back to the chains from where you used to reside
There's no wake, when I wake
And it's always me
Track Name: A Tin Man Me
Check out my girl she's fixing
Transient endings, that's the formula
For distant shores to pull so close
And Summer sheets to never fold
No tears my baby, you...
Show me your panting faces
And whether it is this
Or all the college plans there's something
With appetite to minor voids
That keep me making boyish noise
But keeping ideas fresh is best
But goddamn it drains and leaves a tin man me
Playground love's finding me sick
Strung out and new again

Oh lecture neighbor
My bad behavior
And still uncaught, so uncaught
I'll walk you up towards your classroom again

But all the foreplay under covers
Make fidelity lovers
The blindness on to others
And this is how I'm gonna taker her out
Rest and dine us
And where my house does find us
Well that is where our hips meet
Amongst with male and female things

(And I've got a thing for her
And that is not okay)

Sigh, pray know why
Balanced on the back of my feet
That's how maria keeps me
Right, I'm so right
Tell my life

And though this is a test, still guess
And hope don't end up un-free like tin man me
Playground love's finding me sick
Strung out, oh so again

But all the foreplay under covers
Make fidelity lovers
The blindness on to others
And this is how I'm gonna taker her out
Rest and dine us
And where my house does find us
Well that is where our hips meet
Amongst with male and female things

(Oh lecture neighbor
My bad behavior
And still uncaught, so uncaught
I'll walk you up towards your classroom again)

I don't know why
I've got a girl fine and pretty for me
She lives over the seas
And why pauperize
This me
Track Name: Waltz #1
Last talkings to me always find a way to leave
Save the love that i need and i swear
What's said will not fade like that blanket you sprayed
With your very sexy
I'll cease bye bye, blue eyes
Her voice responds, my wasting's gone
Now I know these things take time
Why do I let unlikely cross my fragile mind?
(No longer unkind, no longer unkind)
She cuts out each word, and pastes them in turn, oh

She will not get in the way
She will not get in the way
Writing to link the past to the present
And all I can do is just let the past go on through
Radiate into my skin

These evil armies, standing up, fighting on
(Send an S. O. S. call)
Well this is where it all blows up
These evil armies, standing up, fighting on
(Send an S. O. S. call)
Well this is where it all...

When I say loud, I wanna get out of this right now
Can we grow from my sounds?
(Send an S. O. S. call)
Will this song live, like when you pulled out of your stall
And stared like a doll

Why do I let unlikely cross my fragile mind?
(No longer unkind, no longer unkind)
She cuts out each word, and pastes them in turn

She will not get in the way
She will not get in the way
Writing to link the past to the present
And all I can do is just let the past go on through
Radiate into my skin
Track Name: Leaving the Hospital; I'm Going Home
Seven times
Your mindless rhymes
As the needle stings
And the test tubes fill with dreadful things
You're spinning round
From the words you found
With arguments you've buried underground

Say, you say that you'll wait
Through air raids you pray
When letters will fade
I miss you so

The choir sings
As gun fire rings
From the wars above
As nurses patch my arms with rubber gloves
It's sad but true
That when morning comes
The dead will rest to the beat of cadence drums

Say, you say that you'll wait
Through air raids you pray
When letters will fade
I miss you
Through the wars in the streets
And the hospital sheets
The letters will read
"I miss you so"

So if the death does show
Charging crossing tolls
I'll say, there's nothing living to revoke
So dream of sleeping
Movement creeping
And if we're out of stone
I'll carve anything of permanence to find my home
And with watermelon effects I'm pardoned

Say, you say that you'll wait
Through air raids you pray
When letters will fade
I miss you
Through the wars in the streets
And the hospital sheets
The letters will read
"I miss you so"
