Track Name: PK Angst
I woke up
With a headache
And I am often wrong
And I am fucking pissed off
And I will scream in your face
If you try to tell me one more time

Not to show my emotion
Not to show my emotion
Not to show my emotion
Not to show my emotion

And the stars, they fade out
When you open that fucking mouth, saying

Don’t show your emotion
Don't show your emotion
Don't show your emotion
Don't show your emotion

But I am not that fucking repressed
But you seem pretty sad inside, so maybe you should

Show your emotion
Show your emotion
Show your emotion
Show your emotions
Track Name: Installation
(E, D, A, E)
We like to act like we have a fucking clue who we really are
All I know is that beyond this head there is a beating heart

And I feel like an installation standing in the middle of a gallery
Every douchebag with a haircut thinking that they can interpret me
But I am not that simple, my explanation aint that flat
I am not a minimalist piece of art piece of crap

But all I can remember is all the girls that wouldn’t kiss me back
And all the friends I didn’t have, and the fun times I never had
And how every night I got drunk and failed out of class
I’m probably on the same track as my parents
I’m probably on the same track as my alcoholic parents

No matter how tall I grow, I still don’t measure up
My heart is too big for my chest, one day it will blow up
And when that day comes I will fall down on the ground and die
And in my final moments of life I’ll think about the people that made me feel
Alive
Made me feel
Alive
Made me feel
Alive, Alive, Alive
Track Name: I Would
Hold on to your head
Or it will get lost like your old friends
Make sure you remember
All the good shit that you hold close to your heart

And you might get lost for a while
But don’t let it phase you
Although you haven’t heard a thing from your friends
Doesn’t mean they don’t love you

Make sure to sew up all the holes
That through all these years have spread throughout your soul
And I’m done signing away my rights
To the bullshit that you’ve fed me all my life

And all this negativity that was taught to me
As being so fucking cool
Can only lead to sadness
And bad relationships that you won’t know how to mend
You won’t know how to mend

I’ve felt the pain
Of eighteen years of shame
And if I could go back
And tell myself I was better than that,
I would
I would
I would
I would
Track Name: Cosmic Compost
We were born out of black holes
We were nothing until the Sun rose up
Our existence is just a joke, our existence was just by chance
We are made up of the same things as the dirt and the skies and the stars

Oh, I know you are going...
Home

Our minds are nothing more than a whole
Solar system crammed into our tiny skulls
Our dreams are brief glimpses into the planets
Contained within the neurons in our brains

Oh, I know you are going…

Home is the place where
The leftover souls and the hearts that were bold
Will grow from the cosmic compost
Grow from the cosmic compost

Complication makes a lot of sense when
The wars on in the world or the wars inside our heads
Are raging every day, Every day
Every day, every day

Oh, I know you are going…

Home is the place where
The leftover souls and the hearts that were bold
Will grow from the cosmic compost
Grow from the cosmic compost
Track Name: For Screening Purposes Only
(G, Em, C, C)
Ever since the day you were born, you were born
You’ve felt like something was wrong
Every voice you hear is just a reflection of sound
Slowly ripping off your skin onto the ground, onto the ground
Like a pile of clothes beside a bed in a messy room

You will stare at pictures and images for hours
And think that you are living life
But your not, but your not
Your just stuck inside of your mind, inside your mind, inside your mind
You are stuck inside your mind, inside your mind

All the faces on the street that you wish that you could meet
But you know that one day you’ll day alone
So you desperately observe every contour on the faces of your
Friends and family, and try to believe that there is
Beauty in every living being
There is beauty in every living being
There is beauty in every living being
There is beauty in every living being

You will stare at pictures and images for hours
And think that you are living life
But your not, but your not
Your just stuck inside of your mind, inside your mind, inside your mind
You are stuck inside your mind, inside your mind

Put this behind you
Put this behind you
Put this behind you
Put this behind you
Track Name: Bricks
(G, C, D, C)
I have waited countless years
For anything to come around
That’ll shake things up a little bit
And I just want a girl that
Will drive me out to her house
In the country

And we will not talk about other people
And we will not talk about music
Or how great that new episode was
And we will just look at each other
And we will briefly comment on nature
We will only talk about the shit that really matters

Like why is my heart so tender
And why are my thoughts so scattered
And why does time pass so quickly
Like how are things gonna turn out
When I turn 20
What in the hell will I be doing, will I be happy?

And we will not talk about other people
And we will not talk about movies
Or how lame reality television is
And we will just look at each other
And we will briefly comment on nature
We will only talk about the shit that really matters

Like why do I still slip up all the time
And why do I still wish that you were alive
And why at this age do I still seek approval
Like how are things gonna turn out
When I turn 30
What in the hell will I be doing, will I be happy?
Like how are things gonna turn out
When I turn 40
What in the hell will I be doing, will I be happy?
Track Name: The Prince of Pogonotrophy
Little boy, in your room reading books
Little boy, in the classroom drawing pictures
In the margins
Of your math homework
In the margins
Of your English papers
And I swear everything will be alright, it’ll be alright

Hey there kid, how’s it going in class
Are you workin hard? What’s your grade point average?
Are you measuring up
To your full potential
Are you measuring up
To be who you’d really like to be
And I swear everything will be alright, it’ll be alright

You are just a hole in my shoe
You are just a rock in my sock
So why don’t I just try to grow up?
So why don’t I just give it a fucking try?
Track Name: Eumoirous
We get back all the hate and all the love that we give out
It’s true
Don’t be fooled into thinking that you are different than other people
Cause you’re not

We all get in the same place sometimes
We all get in the same place sometimes

I’m telling you right now that every action you give has a reaction
It’s unavoidable
So why we just all try to be a good fucking person
We could, but no

We all get in the same place sometimes
We all get in the same place sometimes

How much greater would the world be if we all learned to stop fuckin lying?
Whats the problem?
Do we not trust ourselves? Do we not trust one another?
That’s sad.
Do we not love ourselves? Do we not love one another?
Cause we should.

We all get in the same place sometimes
We all get in the same place sometimes
We all get in the same place sometimes
We all get in the same place sometimes
Track Name: Looking for a Ghost
It has been such a long time since I have seen your face
It has been a very long time since we had the conversations we did

It has been such a long time since I have felt your breath
Against my neck, breathing slowly, never stopping, never stalling

I'm looking for a ghost
I'm looking for a ghost
I'm looking for a ghost

And I've looked, looked for someone to replace you
But I've looked for such a long time I have given up

I'm looking for a ghost
I'm looking for a ghost
I'm looking for a ghost

And I wish, oh I wish that I tried a little bit harder
To hold onto, to hold onto you

Ooooooooooohhhhhhh!

I'm looking for a ghost
I'm looking for a ghost
I'm looking for a ghost
I'm looking for a ghost

It has been such a long time since you have been alive
And I miss you, and I miss you
And I miss you, and I miss you
And I miss you, and I miss you

I'm looking for a ghost
I'm looking for a ghost
I'm looking for a ghost
Track Name: Best and Brightest
We can feel it in the season when we're all down
You can feel like everything's changing, but you're alright
We can take the empty moments and make them beautiful

You just gotta find your way
And never settle for less
Because the time will eventually come
Crashing at your feet and you will hope
That you made it the best

I am leaving and it's coming any day
I am stronger than I put off I swear
Just never forget your friends
You are never as alone as you think
So let go, jump in, and enjoy

You just gotta love yourself
And never let anyone change that
Because the time will eventually come
Crashing at your feet and you will hope
That you made it the best
Track Name: To Death
This is a song for all the people in my life that
I have not shown enough appreciation for
Like my father and my mother and my brother
And my dog that we had to put down last autumn
And when I left for college, I did not know it would be
My last goodbye to my dearly loved Olive
I did not always get along with father but
Now he’s the only one supporting me
Making sure I’m not in a gutter somewhere
Slowly rotting away inside my brain
And my mother she’s a trainwreck sometimes
But that’s only because she’s just like me
And I love her for it, and I love her for being
So strong, independent, and loving
And my brother is an asshole most of the time
But god dammit does that asshole make me laugh
And he’s done so many things that I am so proud of
That it makes up for all the times we argued
We all argued

My final appreciation will be for my Uncle Craig
Who died when I was only twelve years old
He’s my inspiration to stop drinking
He’s my inspiration to replace it with singing
And I do not believe in anything like fate or destiny
But this guitar I’m holdin was inherited from him
And only one or two of the strings are not the original ones that came with it
So I’m sorry if it kind of sounds shitty
But I’m just sayin maybe everything happens for a reason
Maybe everything has purpose and meaning
Maybe we’re meant to deal with the cards that we’re dealt
Nobody had the chance to choose their family
The only thing that we have control of
Is how we feel about them
And I love them
And I love them
And I love them
I love them all to death
To death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death
I love them all to death
To death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death, to death
I love them all to death
I love them all to death
