Track Name: Quick, Brain
Traffic lights give me time
To relive my entire life
Reciting words I wish I had
Instead of all the things I said
License plate, you read my lips
Just telling it like it is
Every night another chance
To get it right and hit the gas

Quick, brain
Think, brain
What would a human say?
Quit it, heart
We don't want
You getting in the way
But you try
Still you try
And you try
Though you might be right, stay quiet

Telephone, you're startling
Don't want to know who's calling in
Anxiety is on the line
Waiting for a reason why
Dial tone
Hold my breath
Just let me know when they've left
It's way too late to give a fuck
But I just can't hang it up

Quick, brain
Think, brain
What would a human say?
Quit it, heart
We don't want
You getting in the way
But you try
Still you try
And you try
Though you might be right after all

The more I think,
The less I'm feeling anything
The more I speak,
The less I'm saying anything

Quick, brain
Think, brain
What would the real me say?
Quick, heart
Kick start
You better lead the way
Quick, brain
Think, brain
Quick, heart
Kick start
You better lead the way

But you try
Still you try
And you try
Though you might be right after all
Track Name: Got Me Good
Got this whole life ahead of me
Well, maybe half if I'm lucky
Boy, I hope I get this thing right
For your sake and mine
It took a while to become this guy
But nonetheless, we were right on time
I'm ready to release my past
If you're ready for this universe

How time flies by

So long, everything I thought I wanted
Turns out everything I need I got it
Yeah, you got me good

Youth is wasted all on the young
Or so it seems when you're hanging on
Old man, you should be home in bed
Waiting to disintegrate
Then you open your eyes
Look right through me
This is real life
And there's so much more to see

How time flies

So long, everything I thought I wanted
Turns out everything I need I got it
Yeah, you got me good

Not sure where I might end up
Or if I'd ever even make it through
But with your arrival departs any doubt
That I am here for good

Got this whole life ahead of me
And now I see that I'm lucky
Boy, I'm slowly figuring out
Got to make every day count

So long, everything I thought I wanted
Turns out everything I need I got it
Yeah, you got me good
So long, everything I thought I wanted
I was so wrong, you're everything I need
I get it
Looks like you got me
Good
Track Name: Auxiliary Floor Toms
Everyone's growing up
I'm just growing old and tired and scruff
My hair is getting thin
My belly's getting fat
I suck in.
And yeah, I still play guitar
Even though it's clear now banjos are
The craze with all the kids
Plucking mandolins is hot
Fuck auxiliary floor toms

I'm so irrelevant
Still banging my head
I may be obsolete
But at least I am still me

I'll never be mature
Same haircut I've had since '94
When I tried to grow it long
Dad marched me down to the salon
May have screwed me up
But was he wrong?

I'm so irrelevant
Still banging my head
I may be obsolete
But at least I am still me

Finger on the pulse of
Nothing that is awesome
Can't pretend I lost touch
When I never even made contact
I still like distortion
And songs with a chorus
At least I'm consistent
But does that count for anything?
No.

I'm so irrelevant
Still banging my head
I may be obsolete
But at least I am still me
Track Name: So Much For Memories
Digging up the past
Not the best idea
Stirring up some things
I never knew were there
Hanging by a thread
To who we used to be
When I really think back
Were we really so bad?

Good ole days
Not quite like I remember
How time finds ways
To make me believe that we were
So in love
Or so it seemed
Well so much for memories

Laying in the snow
We never felt this cold
Going through the motions
Just a couple angelic fools
Frozen back in time
Though we melted long ago
But when I really think back
Were we really so bad?

Good ole days
Not quite like I remember
How time finds ways
To make me believe that we were
So in love
Or so it seemed
Well so much for you and me

Dreams are a sad reminder
Pathetic romanticizer
Me holding on for you
We just got tired of feeling
Our love finally hit the ceiling
Then we'd fall asleep on the telephone again

When I really think back
Were we really so bad?
If I never look back
Maybe I can get past those
Good ole days
Not quite like I remember
How time finds ways
To make me believe that we were
So in love
Or so it seemed
Well so much for memories
Track Name: The Not Knowing
I used to know it all
Until I smartened up
Still learning how
To keep my mouth shut
And as the years escape
I've yet to accept
That there's more adding up
Than shitloads of debt

Feeling lost
Left in the dark
But I'm better off

Not knowing if I'll ever find my way
Not knowing if today may be the day
Not knowing how it feels to fall in love
Not knowing keeps me holding on

I thought I'd heard it all
Until I listened up
When maybe I ought
To keep my ears shut
I will never make
All the pieces fit
But the harder I push
The luckier I get

Feeling lost
Left in the dark
But I'm better off

Not knowing if I'll ever find my way
Not knowing if today may be the day
Not knowing how it feels to fall in love
Not knowing keeps me holding on

Not knowing keeps me going strong
Keeps me hoping, keeps me holding on and on
The not knowing keeps me coming back for more
Track Name: Slip Away
This voice of reason
Is sounding more
Like a choir
So I guess I'm though with dreaming
That's how it seemed when
I slammed that door
Man, I was burnt out
But now I'm back to believing

I might get something right
If I could just close my eyes
Ignore what my instincts say
And just slip away

So I'm letting go
Expectations low
Just having fun
Remember fun?
Oh I'm letting go
Gonna take it slow
And just see what comes

This over-thinker
Dissects to death
Heels over head
Had me hook, line and sinker
So I took a breather
Just needed time
To remember why
I used to be that dreamer

I might get something right
If I could just close my eyes
Ignore what my instincts say
And just slip away

So I'm letting go
Expectations low
Just having fun
Remember fun?
Oh I'm letting go
Gonna take it slow
And just see what comes

Maybe I've seen too much now
How can I pretend that there is still hope
When I lost the point so goddamn long ago
So here I go
Gonna Slip Away

I might get something right
If I could just close my eyes
Ignore every word I hear
And have no fear

So I'm letting go
Expectations low
Just having fun
Remember fun?
Oh I'm letting go
Gonna take it slow
And just see what comes
