Track Name: Intro/Agressive Facebooking @ 2 in the AM/PM
Once again I'm the weird one, I'll watch what I say but I'll still make mistakes I'm an idiot. What have I learned here? It's been nearly a year but I'm still sitting here no steps further and I'll try all the things that you people tell me. Knowing full well that they probably won't help me, more likely than not it will probably upset me. Thanks.

I think I've done my best. I know I've done my best.

It sure was great to hear from you. Sorry that this isn't going nearly as you'd like it to. I don't know if you expected to fight.

It went something like "I had no intentions of talking to you. I just wanted to see what you were up to (and not to be nice or apologize)" I don't know if you apologized and I'm asking you questions and you're getting mad. Bringing up things that make me feel bad. It's your fault. It's my fault. And I won't do the things that you tell me not to, even if they're funny and I think that I ought to. I'll keep to myself and I won't mention you on the internet. I have all my best ideas on the internet.

It sure was great to hear from you. Sorry that this isn't going nearly as you'd like it to. I know what you expected and I apologize. I've given you just what you wanted. To fight.

It sure must be hard being right.
Track Name: Beach Glass
It's easy, when you'er helpless, nothing left to lose. The decision's made for you. That's it. We're done. We lose. And I'm not in control anymore. That's the hardest part. You lose it when you're cast adrift. The wavvves tear you apart. But I need them to hurt me, they help me learn to cope. Erase my fading mindset. It's the only hope.

Don't pick me up. I'm not ready yet. Leave me in the water. I don't mind, I'm cold and wet. It's time for me to learn now. To get as good as I can get. For now.

It's easy when you're lonely, no one to answer to. Get used to yourself. No one will comfort you. "You need it to hurt now. It's how you know its real. Just focus on yourself. Who cares how she feels." Nothing really matters. Anyone can see. Nothing really matters. To me.

Don't pick me up. I'm not ready yet. Leave me in the water. I don't mind, I'm cold and wet. It's time for me to learn now. To get as good as I can get. For now.

One day I'll fall apart. That day is not today.
One day I'll fall apart
Track Name: Everybody Loves HPV?
You will cough up crows that peck my eyes
And I will do nothing but go blind

But my heart
It has eyes
And my love
It has sight
Even though it may be
A little cloudy

And you will break my back for all the burdens I lay upon it
But I will never blame you for those bees inside this bonnet

And my lungs will grow cancers
And my back it will grow achy
I will buy us an acre
Of some land in the city
We could live there together
Or I'll live alone less happy
But I'll live
Unfortunately

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me, me

Now how I remember you
How I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet
Now we keep where we don't know
All secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago
Now he don't even know his name

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round' the sun
And when we meet on a cloud
I'll be laughing out loud
I'll be laughing with everyone I see
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all
Track Name: Hard To Explain (The Strokes Cover)
Was an honest man
Asked me for the phone
Tried to take control

Oh, I don't see it that way
I don't see it that way

Oh, we shared some ideas
All obsessed with fame
Says we're all the same

Oh, I don't see it that way
I don't see it that way

Raised in Carolina
"I'm not like that"
Trying to remind her
When we go back

I missed the last bus, I'll take the next train
I try but you see, it's hard to explain
I say the right things, but act the wrong way
I like it right here, but I cannot stay
I watch the TV; forget what I'm told
Well, I am too young, and they are too old
The joke is on you, this place is a zoo
"You're right it's true"

Says he can't decide
I shake my head to say
Everything's just great

Oh, I just can't remember
I just can't remember

Raised in Carolina, she says:
" I'm not like that"
Trying to remind her
When we go back

I say the right things but act the wrong way
I like it right here but I cannot stay
I watch the TV; forget what I'm told
Well, I am too young, and they are too old
Oh, man, can't you see I'm nervous, so please
Pretend to be nice, so I can be mean
I miss the last bus, we take the next train
I try but you see, it's hard to explain
Track Name: Naked In The Rain
We shouldn’t stop this here. Lets do this one more time. Just let me try again. We’ll make it through just fine. I’m naked in the rain. How did I end up here? This wasn’t in the plan, It’s my biggest fear. Of waking up alone, losing my best friend. God that’s the hardest part. I’m thinking this again.

Nothing in my life has ever prepared me for anything like this
So I’ll learn on my own time. I guess that’s what it takes. Just sitting and waiting and thinking still thinking. Until your memories fade from my mind.

And don’t you ever think, “God this is all his fault”. You know damn well it’s not. Just have a look around look at your new friends and look at your new life. You’re nothing like you were. You’re nothing like I liked. It’s so hard to forget all the things we said and all the things we planned. All our plans are dead and I’m still naked in the rain I’ve been there all along. I thought that you would help. I guess that I thought wrong.

Nothing in my life has ever prepared me for anything like this
So I’ll learn on my own time. I guess that’s what it takes. Just sitting and waiting and thinking still thinking. Until your memories fade from my mind.
Track Name: None of This Actually Happened
Well this is it. You’ve thrown it all away everything we had. Lost. I don’t know what to do, just get out off my room, Give me time to think. Please. You say “It’s nothing that I’ve done”. You just need the time alone. You say “I probably need some too”. Thanks. For knowing what I need and giving it to me .I think I’ll call my dad. I’ll say “Fuck”. It happened here today. I think I’ll be okay. I’m being cavalier
Now

You’re the one who needs me and I’m the one who’s free. From this. and I’ll get drunk tonight and you’ll get drunk tonight with your friends and I’ll be awakened at five to the sound of my best friend just living his life. And you’re the one who’s wrong and no this won’t last long.

Called my mom. Called my sister. Called my dad. Why can’t someone help me?
Just calm down. Please calm down. Just calm down. You can help yourself.

So this is it. I woke up on the floor but I’ve lost my will to move. Again. I look at these last two years. I should have known these days would come. No matter how we try. To cope. I need to find myself but all I have is you. I thought you were enough. So I thought. Well I guess you’re not enough and now I’m just alone. Alone inside my head. With you.

Go to class. Do my work. Don’t let down. She let you down.
Find your thoughts. Find yourself. Don’t forget. These lessons I have learned.
Porcelain glass figurines. On the floor. All across the floor.
Porcelain glass figurines. On the floor. It’s al my fault.
Track Name: Wake (The Antlers Cover)
With the door closed, shades drawn, the world shrinks.
Let's open up those blinds. But someone has to sweep the floor,
pick up her dirty clothes. That job's not mine.
Now that everyone's an enemy, my heart sinks.
Let's put away those claws.
I don't blame them for their curtains-calls because I pulled the rope.
I wanna call them back out for applause.

Spring and Thompson on the first of May is horrible.
We hid in catacombs. So now I'm sleeping next to mousetraps,
in a bed of all our clothes, while I hope that she won't come home.
It was easier to lock the doors and kill the phones than to show my skin,
because the hardest thing is never to repent for someone else,
it's letting people in.

Well you can come inside, unlock the door, take off your shoes.
But this might take all night,
to explain to you I would have walked out those sliding doors,
but the timing never seemed right.
When your helicopter came and tried to lift me out,
I put its rope around my neck.
And after that you didn't bother with the airlift or the rescue
- you knew just what to expect.

That with the door closed,
shades drawn, we're dead enough.
They don't open from outside.
And someone has to speak with their teeth behind their tongue,
to never let that right be denied.
We can't rely on photographs and visitation time,
but I just don't know where to begin.
I wanna bust down the door,
if you're willing to forgive.
I've got the keys, I'm letting people in.

Don't be scared to speak,
don't speak with someone's tooth,
don't bargain when you're weak,
don't take that sharp abuse.
Some patients can't be saved, but that burden's not on you.

Don't ever let anyone tell you you deserve that.
Don't ever let anyone tell you you deserve that.
