Track Name: Every Time That You're Near Me
I'm a pretty funny guy but I'm not hilarious
I dont make a lot of sense but Im not mystarious and somtimes I just stare... I just stare at the wall

And I can get real sad you know but not depressed
And they get me down but Im not oppressed
And sometimes I just press... I just press my head against the wall.. Same one that I stare at actually

But Im a real nice guy I mean I treat people right I brush my teeth I say my prayers at night I'd say nobody really hates me... All that much... Or like me either

But you know I got some buddies, I got some friends, I got the poker night thing but, well there's no one I'd take to the end, no one like you Francine

Every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me
I'm someone else... It's fun

You make a better door then a window
Thats what my granmda said, so simple
and you know ever since that day I feel guilty for standing up
I mean, even a couch has got a function
you know sometimes I wish I was a couch or something with a function you know something to get some use... well I mean so people could sit down

Every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me
I'm someone else... It's fun

I would cry, I would cry, if I could... if I could...

Every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me
I'm someone else... It's fun
Track Name: Titty Bar Chicken (Ringin' In My Brain)
I'm eating $5 titty bar chicken
Choking down my own condition
Of cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana, heartbreak, chocolate cake, and pain

I got this ringin in my brain lord
its drivin me insane
yeah this ringin in my brain
is drivin me insane

During the 10 minute tease and please at the end of each hour candy she dance for me as i drank whiskey sours and afterwords I asked her to a movie she said she'd already seen

yeach this ringin in my brain lord its driving me insane yeah this ringin in my brain lord its driving me insane

so I said my goodbyes and I was on my way $100 lighter and towards a darker place and I went home thought about candy ate some candy and fell asleep
ya this ringin in my brain lord its driving me insane yeah this ringing in my brain lord its driving me insane
Track Name: I Wish We Were Beginning It
The tooth brush holder's only got one brush
and the tattoo I got I had to get retouched
and I even cleaned the bathroom... Which is so rare
I tried to erase you, throw away every hair

I wish we were beginning it,
not ending it, but beginning it
I wish we were beginning it,
not ending it, but beginning it
I wish we were beginning it,
not ending it, but beginning it...
It'd be a happier thing to do

Now all your things are piled up in my room
my room feels so bare I can't help but think of you
I can smell you on my bed... Your hint of perfume
My roommate flushed the toilet last night I thought it was you I SWEAR IT WAS YOU!... (but you never did come back to bed)

I wish we were beginning it,
not ending it, but beginning it
I wish we were beginning it,
not ending it, but beginning it
I wish we were beginning it,
not ending it, but beginning it...
It'd be a happier thing to do

And the happiest memories are the saddest now,
the happiest memories are the saddest now,
the happiest memories are the saddest...
What on earth am I gonna do? (X2)

I wish we were beginning it,
not ending it, but beginning it
I wish we were beginning it,
not ending it, but beginning it
I wish we were beginning it,
not ending it, but beginning it...
It'd be a happier thing to do
It'd be a happier thing to do
It'd be a happier thing to do!
Track Name: Life
Hay is for the horses/ And Mr Ed when he says hi
The fever and the cattle/ And haunted wagon rides
Fun is for Chucky Cheese/ Cindy Lauper and freaks
Winning the lottery/ Unlimited cookies

But we all know that the sunshine shines for flowers
And the haters say that the flowers are for cowards
but life is for you and me darlin'
Yeah life is for you and me darlin'

Cool is for James Dean/ Rock and roll and the north pole
Smokin' cigarettes and wearin' jeans with holes
Dreams are for little league/ Bed time and getting high
Martin Luther King/ The apple of my eye

But we all know that the sunshine shines for flowers
And the haters say that the flowers are for cowards
but life is for you and me darlin'
Yeah life is for you and me darlin'

Space is for spacing out/ Feng Shui and Chi
Aliens and Einsten/ And romantic philosophies
Stars are for the big screen/ Shining up above the sea
Stars are what I see/ When you're gazing back at me

But we all know that the sunshine shines for flowers
And the haters say that the flowers are for cowards
but life is for you and me darlin'
Yeah life is for you and me darlin'

So if hay is for the horses/ Mr Ed when he says hi
The fever the cattle/ Haunted wagon rides
And if all that stuff is for all that stuff/ What's there left for us?
All we get is life/ So choose your life and you'll be alright!
Track Name: High Society Scene
You work for the high society scene/ On Facebook you post pictures with celebrities
And they say its not good measure/ of mental health to see
How well one adjusts to a sick society

You work for he high society scene/ I saw you in Playboy magazine's college girls edition
And they say its no good measure/ of mental health to see
How well one adjusts to a sick society

And tho your hair is jet black your eyes are still green
And frankly I'd guess you probably still... Frankly I'd say you probably still...
Frankly I'd guess you probably still smell like sunscreen... Coppertone!

You work for the high society scene/ Your boyfriend's 55 and you're 23
And they say its not good measure/ of mental health to see
How well one adjusts to a sick society

And they say its not good measure/ of mental health to see
How well one adjusts to a sick society
Track Name: I'll Be Home For Christmas
My dad's been smoking crack since my mom passed away/ I listened to my headphones the entire funeral wake/ I still call my grand mother on every holiday/ But I never made it home since graduation day

But I'll be home for Christmas/ To get drunk with you
And laugh about all the stupid things/ We got ourselves into
But it won't feel like it used to

I haven't cried since we put the dog to sleep/ And I had to say goodbye to a small part of me
It all feels so different on the same suburban street/ With an empty bottle of whiskey underneath the Christmas tree

But I'll be home for Christmas/ To get drunk with you
And laugh about all the stupid things/ We got ourselves into
But it won't feel like it used to

So here's a toast, to the holidays/ It's the happiest time of year
A cigarette by the old swing set proves the times have changed it clear
So marry Christmas and happy new year

My dad's been smoking crack since my mom passed away/ I listened to my headphones the entire funeral wake/ I still call my grand mother on every holiday/ But I never made it home since graduation day

So here's a toast, to the holidays/ It's the happiest time of year
A cigarette by the old swing set proves the times have changed it clear
So marry Christmas and happy new year (X3)
Track Name: We Were All Like Whatever
I guess we were all like whatever/ Our freshman year at Western our first semester
That's when we were all like whatever/ That's when we were all like whatever

When Johnny got busted by the real cops/ For sneakin' dime bags in his gym socks
Even Johnny didn't cry/ And no one mentioned him that night
No one mentioned him that night/ No one mentioned him that night

I guess we were all like whatever/ Our freshman year at Western our first semester
That's when we were all like whatever/ That's when we were all like whatever

Feelin' like a runaway steak knife/ As you cut across the line
Pass that girl and she's all like whatever/ I see her all the time
I see her all the time/ I see her all the time

But I guess we were all like whatever/ Our freshman year at Western our first semester
That's when we were all like whatever/ That's when we were all like whatever

Practicing your hello's and goodbye's/ But in a dorm it's hard to hide
I'd admit it would be hard to look you in the eye
I used to all the time/ I used to all the time/ I used to all the time

I guess we were all like whatever/ Our freshman year at Western our first semester
That's when we were all like whatever/ That's when we were all like whatever

(repeat)
Track Name: Clothes
Well there's a bunch of clothes walking around here today/
Just a bunch of clothes with nothing to say
I took a mini skirt out on a date/
But we didnt relate/ I guess there wasn't much to say

And I can see pants and shirts and hats and shoes/
And I even snuck me a peek at those high heeled boots/
And I've counted countless empty suits/
Well how bout you? Are you an empty suit too?

You have a different face/ But you wear the same clothing
You have a different name/ But you wear the same shoes
So keep me away from that fancy clothing/ Cause I cant afford to be an empty suit

If you could step into my shoes friend surely you'd understand/
It takes a lot more then clothes to make a good man
Yet you can't be going around not wearing pants/
I mean whats up with that? Who said we all gotta wear pants man?

You have a different face/ But you wear the same clothing
You have a different name/ But you wear the same shoes
So keep me away from that fancy clothing/ Cause I cant afford to be an empty suit

Well the moral of the story the lesson here my friends/
Is we live in a primarily visual world that don't make a lot of sense
So don't be deceived by all the things you see
Remember its just a bunch of clothes walking down the street
Track Name: Time Conquers All
If my life never changed/ And I spent all of the rest of my days
With no one, or nothing to count on
I would say I'd be afraid/ But I know I'd be ok
For if nothing, I'd find something to believe in

Time conquers all/ Be it big or small
And life don't offer much to keep

If the ship sailed away
And I spent all of the rest of my days/ Alone, on an island eating coconuts
I would say I'd be afraid/ But I know I'd be ok
For if nothing, I'd at least find a reason

Time conquers all/ Be it big or small
And life don't offer much to keep

If today was like yesterday/ And tomorrow was still more of the same
I would say I'd be afraid/ But I know I'd be ok
To live is really all that matters

Time conquers all/ Be it big or small
And life don't offer much to keep (X3)
