Stupider 00:22
Don’t know who I am, so I act like who I’m with with stupid crazy fits, calm down
Stupid 02:08
I lost my friend, he looked me in the eye told me to, "go and leave my friends behind. next time you open your heart to some one..."
Wet Food 03:27
Please come around to my arbitrary sounds and I'll be there to try to be a better guy Sneeze in my way; get me sick and waste the day. I wanna feel your mind and please the better kind I know you offer all the ways and though you often watch me change, I'll be fair, though you watch me share Steve, where'd you go? Down the road for way too long You found some better guys to feed you cans and mice Steve, chase the stars and sit on constellation cars I wanna see you ride and feel you in the sky I know you offer all the ways and though you often watch me change, I'll be fair, though you watch me share I found your home and watched you roam, but there you'll be.
Dusty Tree 02:34
Why’d you want for both your heads to suck on a family seed growing there? Hard to say you both collect Stuck in the sand, your seed won’t educate New scene stomper, why’d you have to go away? Don’t you wanna see the day?  You’re stuck on the family tree Blue jean waver, now you have to go away Watch the drivers both collide right into a family tree How’d you ask to change her name? Did you spend all the time you saved up in there? It’s a lot to lose my friend Well i don’t know what you see deep in there Hard to fix the gutter when you wait to see the rain Don’t you feel a bit insane planting your family tree? All the way the water never finds the seeds to grow but when you plant in the sand, now you’re stuck with a family tree
Come inside; put a blanket around your thighs The dusty weather tries Other systems; you can bathe inside the bed The fuss you make is odd Little ways to change your sound and I can see your old sides part of the way So I invest in my old side falling away Seasons change but your mind stays the same You love to wait and stall Father History, did all the names stay the same? You want him to recall all the weight he drags through fall You can mess with your own sides all of the way but you neglected the old side part of the way So you invented a new kind only to say less to have us both invest sides but either way we could have us both the rest, I call to wait
Aged Hype 01:51
Remind me when I go to a better place to erase my face and jump off and when they settle down will you crawl on the grass and chew? and I’ll be there, feeling unprepared That's why you roam my city through Now I’m prepared to swim in underwear and that’s why you will hold on to Well I’ll feel better off in the summertime when I can lay down and enjoy the grass Survived through better times when you’d showed all you had been through
Ex-Punk 03:44
Speak your way with words you say and fuck my own morals today You play the part right from the start and struck my tone then left me alone to lose your taste, prove your strife through haste Loosen up to find i’m behind Teach and play around your day Destruct my phone; lonely we stray I couldn’t try to be that guy that you need for only you feed on time to time; blue in my dead face Lose your ties to guys spewing lies Next time, gimme more time Rest inside ’til you wake Dreams are always fake
Stupidest 01:26
When you hold your head aside your bed you only leave signs read through old times Then you left your bed to find a way to feel the old signs fed through old times
Plastic 03:42
After I go I will try to hear you over summer’s shine, you could be mine and me yours Feel the line you draw to find who we are and it peels away your will to say we’re fine How you strain to value our weird strength in each other, you’ll find another, I fear some day Now i feel you own this, our real shame to your own bliss, you should find it and feel sane with your phony plastic man You will find it’s hard to try and feel sane with your open arms to empty charms you reach out and you’ll feel the weight you know you hate Too late
Jock Dreams 03:53
Little oyster guy, will you walk far, still on the way? Just don’t let me stay too long and I’ll walk on back to your house, hard to find the way You won’t let me stay too long How you seem 21, that’s your dream Yeah, you are the best one on your team! Now I walk to try to define lost but found a way but you let me stay too long I’m hard to find in one line No more falls to waste if you let me stay too long “and I hate you like you will never know, and all the fans that chant your name and watch while you oxygenate and wait in line to shake your hand. Thumbing at their razorblades like baby boy, you knew this all along. One more strike and you'll be gone.”
Sit me in the way, motor on and drink you say? I read it on the page insisting you’re a special age Fit you in the side and settle for a comfort ride  and metal with your open stride when you inflicted me to float inside Then you embrace my hand; shriveled in the sand and walk by your mirror again After all we’ve done, everything under the sun It's shining on your face; the shade is all you long to chase Met her outside; sometimes i wish i ever tried Drowning in the safe lowt-ide when you were better off a fishy man Then you will change my hands, fins to swim in sand You drop off some flippers instead Please them, do tricks for them Seasoned and filtered friends Wash off the scaley ends Sun rays he never sends
Dumboy 09:32
Peer inside the worst instead Joy is breaking off Fear it lies in words you said Boy is playing dumb Voice screams at you wrong I play too hard The few that fit there sound fair and you could sit there, in your round chair For you to feel to wrong, a wide stare You’re only ever wrong to change back your ware The universe crawls in fat weight I only ever know it’s controversial Drink into an annoying friend Try and change mine With condescending words from friends, I embrace my fall Noisy attitude Boy fakes it all But you hit the wall and the town stays The two of us crawl around ways To fool the teams call about weight I only had you all entice my fate The universe calls for that way but only after all you recall your first day
