Track Name: Zero
Did you learn the hard way?
Did you think this a game?
Did you take the long way?
Do you still want to play zero sum games?
Track Name: Analog
I don't believe I'm typical
I'm a beautiful butterfly
I don't believe I'm cynical
There's just nothing that's that airtight
I don't believe in intervals
I adhere to a sliding scale
I don't believe in digital
I'm a strict analogologist
Track Name: Down the Dead Ends
you know I'm just a camera lens
refracting light down dead ends
you know I'm just a camera lens
refracting light down dead ends

I'm sure we'll see each other around
I'm sure we'll see each other
I'm sure we'll see each other around
I'm sure we'll see each other

Down the dead ends
Down the dead ends

you know I'm just smoke and mirrors
you see me but I'm not there
you know I'm just smoke and mirrors
you know I'm just not there
Track Name: Homebodies
Say my name Mary Jane
lets be homebodies
point the fan out the door
lets be noone
I get that itch want that fix
every five minutes
If I'm the hand you're the wrist
who controls what
but its just in my head

Say my name Mary Jane
thats some strong coffee
if you're my bud sweep your dust
under my rug
and we'll be friends til the end
we'll be best buddies
I get that edge think my bests
losing my touch
but its just in my head
Track Name: Horseshoes and Handgrenades
Remember what you said
about horseshoes and hand grenades?
close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades
I said

"And life's just a stupid game"
I'll take my ball and go home I don't wanna play
I'm dead

I'm just drinking the day away
drinking the pain away
drinking your name away
I know

that it hurts to grow up
there's a hole in my chest and I wanna throw up
I'm new to this
Track Name: Utah
Red salt lake
Taste the sky
Washed away
Scraping by

Red salt lake
Taste of blood
Washed away
Where the sky meets the mud

You're all rainbowed
butterflies
I'm a window in your eyes
You're a sparkle
in the sky
I'm a wrinkle in your side
Track Name: Firetrucks
Told myself this is what I want
Told my heart to cut it out
Told myself that I'm happy now
Told my mind to shut its mouth

Fucked myself over now
Fucked myself over again
Fucked myself over now
Fucked myself over

Told myself to double down
Told myself not to pussy out
Told myself to toughen up
Sometimes life hits below the belt

Fucked myself over now
Fucked myself over again
Fucked myself over now
Fucked myself over
Track Name: Hair of the Dog
You said you couldn't have
another drink for another six months
and then you reached in your pocket
for your wallet and you checked your funds

In another five minutes
six months went by and you laughed
and said oh how the times does fly
can we go back
Track Name: Movie
My head hurts
my eyes feel very heavy
my chest hurts and my nose is all stuffed

I'll stay home
I won't go out to school today
I'll lay down and just watch some T.V.

or maybe ill watch a movie
Track Name: Pi Day
Post-grad crisis
I'm due for one now
Post-love numbness
is numbing me out

And I haven't seen my friends in so long
And I haven't been myself for a while
And I hadn't heard that song in so long
It doesn't sound the same to me now

Post-love trauma
I'm feeling it now
Sweet nostalgia
turned bitter in my mouth

And I haven't left my bed in too long
And I haven't been myself in a while
And I haven't felt this way for so long
It doesn't feel the same to me now
Track Name: Carnival
When ya go to the carnival
there's a bus that'll take ya there
I was waiting with a friend of mine
he lamented with a thousand yard stare saying

"Its high time you got out of my hair
it's been nothin but trouble for the last few years and
if you don't ever wanna come back
I'll cut you some slack"

Well when ya get to the carnival
there's a bus, take ya anywhere
I was waiting in the hot dog line
I lamented with a thousand yard stare saying

"It's high time I got out of this fair
I've been running from my troubles for the last few years and
If I go and decide to come back would you cut me some slack
If I go and decide to come back will you cut me some slack?"
