Track Name: TWENTY
I'm a couple weeks away from turning twenty
and it really bums me out
I'm a little worried I'm not really ready
but there's not much I can do right now

take the pink line to the loop and back daily
and it always brings me down
i've been thinking about my home as of lately
and i miss that fucking town

I miss the town that i grew up in
the kids that i grew up with
the stupid shit that we did
and i miss my fucking girlfriend

I miss going to the skate park
and always riding shotgun
lying to my parents
i miss having fun

what's another day? what's another night?
tack another year onto my life
getting older sucks but i'm alright
we're alright

it was easier when we were kids
said we'd never be like our parents
no your working 9 to 5
killing yourself to pay the rent

i feel weird about what happened
cause we said we'd stay best friends
but as time goes on
i guess it's easy to forget

what's another day? what's another night?
tack another year onto my life
getting older sucks but i'm alright
we're alright

minutes into hours
hours into days
days turn into weeks
then weeks turn into months

minutes into hours
hours into days
days to weeks
weeks to months
living day to day really ads up

what's another day? what's another night?
tack another year onto my life
getting older sucks but i'm alright
we're alright
Track Name: NO WORRIES IT'S ALRIGHT I SWEAR
you turned your back on me
i turned the other cheek
sometimes i still think
about folly beach

I walk back and fourth
through an open door
i'll come back for more
when i get bored

you can't pay off your car
much less hold a job
a bump on a log
i'm not one to talk

i use cash for gold
to pay off student loans
but it don't put a dent
in what i owe

we're just burnouts and white trash
going nowhere fast
no worries it's alright
i swear

I grew up
in a tired town
where tired ghosts
seem to float around

we shot the shit
we always talked about
steeling cars
and getting out

but i ran from
where i am from
and it was fun for a while
but the fun is done

i woke up today
with a different name
and i slowly sink
into my old ways

we're just burnouts and white trash
going nowhere fast
no worries it's alright
i swear
Track Name: ME, MYSELF, AND EVERYBODY ELSE
i'm not smarter i'm just older
i'm still fucking myself over
like i did when i was younger
but i get in way more trouble

i get bored and i watch tv
i watch porn and i feel sleezy
seems like i'm always chasing
or just running from a feeling

i tried my fucking best
that's what i have to tell myself
so that i can get to sleep
my past eats away at

me, myself,
and everybody else
i never found it in me
to tell you how i felt

about all of the late nights
most of the long drives
we got in those dumb fights
we were always being dumb guys

here's to having fun
here's to the way shit was
before we ever got drunk
before we ever did those drugs

pictures of lost friends
saved text messages
will bring us back
to a place we never
should have left

and i know it's a little late but
i'm feeling the weight of
the things i wanted as a kid
and the things i did to get them

and i know it's a little late but
i'm more than a little bit drunk
and i need to be reminded of the last time i had fun

weight of the world
my head hangs low
i've watched people that i love
turn into people i don't know

we all go to bed
every single night
a little less alive
a little more dead inside

weight of the world
my head hangs low
i've watched people that i love
turn into people i don't know

we all go to bed
every single night
a little less alive
a little more dead inside
Track Name: MY FAVORITE BANDS
the songs that set you free
now ball and chains strapped to your feet
you travel town to town
just like a circus clown

singing songs that you wrote
over two decades ago
that you no longer believe in
but still sings cause it's convenient

you were my idol, my hero, my god
but you're a liar, a fake, a fraud

so take off that fucking mask and tell the truth
you're just cellophane, we can see through you

you've gotten a little older
and a lot less relevant
in an attempt to tip the scales
you try to inflate yourself

tell the kids that you're important
that they should watch and learn
but this aint the scene you started
it has changed and so have they

you were one of my favorite fucking bands
but now when i see you live i just get sad

so take off that fucking mask and tell the truth
you're just cellophane, we can see through you

you swore that you'd never grow up
you swore that you'd always stay young
you swore that you'd never grow up
you feel trapped you feel stuck

so take off that fucking mask
and tell the truth
you're just cellophane
we can see through you
Track Name: NOT SO SMART
I try my best to
always look good
to always always sound smart
like i know i should

i cut my hair short
and i sit up straight
i keep my mouth shut
but not today

today's the day i'm not so smart
make mistakes i'll crash my car
call your phone i'll spill my heart
cause today's they day that i'll have fun

i give an inch
you take a mile
bad ideas
just pile higher

the sun blacks out
slowly but surely
this endless summer
will end early

today's the day that i'll have fun
i'll skip class and i'll do drugs
skate around and just act dumb
today's the day that i'll have fun
Track Name: WINTER BREAK (2011-2012)
Fucked up angry and restless
I haven’t slept in days
Always in last place never the best bet
I guess I’ll never change

But you knew I had a problem
even though I try to hide it
there’s a devil that’s inside me
and I’m trying my best to fight it

when we met we were kids
so confused so innocent
I made promises back then
I did not intend to break

I stayed young and you grew up
I moved north we grew apart
you got a real job
and I’ve been working on my art

I’m self-centered
Distant and scattered
Spend my time thinking about
Shit that doesn’t matter

And I know I’m young
But I wont be for long
Thought I’d stay 16 forever
Turns out I was wrong

It’s the middle of the winter
And I’ve come home to visit
But everything is different
And everyone seems distant

Where did all my friends go
Don’t see anyone I know
They’re all so dull and lifeless
That I can’t call this home

Just a year ago
We all were just losers
Getting fucked up in a trailer
Talking shit about the future

Egging houses break mailboxes
Found happiness forgot it
Now we’re betting all we’ve got
Trying to win back out losses
Track Name: HANGING OUT WITH YOU
I like hanging out with you
I work and you sleep in till noon
we watch shark shows on the tube
i'm not bored when there's nothing to do
cause i like hanging out with you
Track Name: SINK AND SWIM
I can’t keep my

Head above the water
Never finished what I started
You tried to make me listen
But it didn’t make a difference

Made me promise made me vow
To get a job and mellow out
I guess that I fell short
I didn’t give up I just got bored

Fell in love you broke my heart
I moved up north and sold my car
I aint been making progress
But at least I made an effort

Things have changed they’ve gotten weird
I’ve lost the things that I hold dear
That’s the way things go
You live you love you lose you grow
Track Name: TOURIST SEIZIN'
It started out as an endless summer
ended up as a total bummer
we kill brain cells and we get dumber
we wait around for something funner

winter's here this place is freezing
empty buildings line empty beaches
our jobs depend on offshore breezes
we wait around for tourist seizin'

I'm good at making promises
and better at breaking them
I dig my feet into the sand
my bones break before they bend

sit around and just pretend
i'm still the man i think i am
instead of the total wreck
i know i really am

It started out as an endless summer
ended up as a total bummer
we kill brain cells and we get dumber
we wait around for something funner

winter's here this place is freezing
empty buildings line empty beaches
our jobs depend on offshore breezes
we wait around for tourist seizin'

I'm bad at thinking most things through
and worse at keeping cool
bad ideas turned into proof
walk away before i do

i've been filling empty rooms
with questionable career moves
aim for the stars land on the moon
compromises through and through

It started out as an endless summer
ended up as a total bummer
we kill brain cells and we get dumber
we wait around for something funner

winter's here this place is freezing
empty buildings line empty beaches
our jobs depend on offshore breezes
we wait around for tourist seizin'
Track Name: NEW YEAR
another year has gone by
and i'm feeling less alive
i use to thrive off making mistakes
getting shitfaced with my friends

but all my friends have learned their lessons
the ones that didn't have been arrested
it seems the world has gotten colder
and all my friends have gotten older

but i can't bring myself to grow up
and i know i'm not alone

Somewhere down the line
i fell out of step
my head is wrecked
i guess i'm doing alright

nothing good is free
my priorities are fucked
i've got everything i need
but nothing that i want

getting drunk off my ass in the rain
being loud starting fights on the train
skipping class and wasting my brain
sit on my ass and waste the day

Sit around and waste the day
just sit around and waste away

My lungs are still breathing
so i guess my heat's still beating
so i guess i'm still alive
so i guess i'm still...

i want to be
more than "Just surviving"
i want to be stoked on life and thriving
make the most of everyday
and watch the darkness fade away

and I know I'm not alone
Track Name: EVERYTHING GETS BETTER
I've been working 9 to 5
trying my best to stay alive
and it gets harder every night
but i know i'll be alright

i've been using cash for gold
trying to pay off all my loan
even with all that i have sold
there's still so much that i owe

i've been worse and i've been better
when things get bad i don't get bitter
cause i'll never control the weather
and everything always gets better

I'm wishing on shooting stars
it don't get me very far
i still can't pay off my car
much less even hold a job

all these waves just rock my boat
i try my best to stay afloat
sometimes it works sometimes it don't
but that's just the way it goes

i've been worse and i've been better
when things get bad i don't get bitter
cause i'll never control the weather
and everything always gets better
