Track Name: Teens
We go for a walk in the park
I don't know what makes you so curious after dark
A joker with the eyes for art
Take me to the place that you've been
Keeping from the rest of the party

Is it just me?
Or is this nice?
I just want to forget what's right
Oh, tonight.

The sun sets beneath these hills
An hour after we're drunk of these teenage-like chills
I'm dumb in the smartest of ways
I'm putting down my guard for only three or four days

We're doing what's unreasonable
I know that it's not feasible
I'm putting my mouth where it don't belong
And I know, I know, I know it's wrong
Track Name: Night
I’ve got a chip on my shoulder
It’ll break quite soon
If I don’t let it heal
If I keep talking to you

And it connect to my arm
Then to my feeble hand
Oh I must make amends
I must make amends

And I’ll lose my job
Then I will lose my will
Oh it’s all down hill
Oh it’s all down hill

Tell me is this love destroying me
Or tell me that it’s just anxiety

And I’ll be fine

Oh night after night

I’ve got an idea
That’s probably no good
But if I don’t say it aloud
Than it never could

Got a 9 o’clock meeting that I can not take
‘Cause you keep me awake
It’s a solid mistake
Track Name: Wisdom
Who am I to pray for a life much unlike mine
When everybody round me seems to care
We walk down the streets
and tell our friends that we haven’t seen
that we’d like to catch a beer sometime soon somewhere

And all of winter’s worries seem to melt with the snow
And we all simply go and dance about
We make our mistakes that we’ll revel in the fall
And we laugh as if it was a joke, that’s all

I could tell you everything I know
But what I seem to know’s nothing at all
Oh I could give you wisdom beyond my years
But I believe

That wisdom is a symptom of looking from the grave

The sidewalk is so pretty ‘neath it’s normal layer of dirt
And I laugh at all the birds that walk about
I come into this city to get outside my head
And sometimes into bed with those who never knew me before
Track Name: Shithead
I'm so tired of fucking when I'm drunk
Who'd've thunk I'd get sick of this?
I'm so mad it's the only thing I've had
For a month or maybe 6

I'm so sick of being sick and tired of all of your antics
Get me out of this

I'm just a little shithead
That wants to kiss you
Every change that I get
I just wanted to make you
Feel like you had never felt

But, you're always in love

It's a struggle just to haggle with my moods
Nevermind when I'm out of it
You're always calling when I've finally rewarded myself
For trying to forget about it
Track Name: Fraud
I wait for all these people
They seem to find me unwielding
Or so I think

I wait to get this work done
I feel as if I'm not ready
Or so I think

I'm a fraud
Until you say I'm not
You seem to be pushing me
To give you all I've got

I'm a mess
And I must confess to you
The way you do what you do
Makes me feel alright

I wait for everybody to give me the okay
I find myself a real wreck somedays
I can not find the reason to come out and play
I'm a real chameleon when it comes to this
