Track Name: Molasses Waltz
How dare they be so welcoming?
Swinging kids from the ceiling.
How dare they be so welcoming?
Swinging kids from the ceiling.

You play guitar and that’s what defines you.
So-and-so creates an event and they invited you.
Thirty black shirts in a room.
Same basic three hair cuts.

Break my back if it will prove something.
I need facts to enjoy my life.
Who’s going to the show tonight?
I think I already know.
What did I pass up just to sweat with you?
And then cry on the drive home.
Alone, Alone.
In a fifties sounding tone.

Wallet’s empty. Slam me down.
Blank stare parents. Slam me down.
Missed your birthday. Slam me down.
But it’s worth it so slam me down.

Laying in the back of the van with a dead phone and a sunburn.
Collectively selecting me.
I am one with the adventure.

Chill out.
Breathe in.
You’re far from your ceiling.
Chill out.
Breathe in.
You’re far from your ceiling.
Chill out.
Breathe in.
You’re far from your ceiling.
Chill out.
Breathe in.
Your good, man.

Knife in my side.
Slowly take it out.
One’s a mother fucker.
Two’s a crowd.
The pro’s and the con’s of singing along.
Magnifying glass to a good time.

Sleep in the corner of your eye.
Play the songs that I wrote.
Make your boys laugh and make a joke.
Soon you will all see my ghost.
I already melted my skin.
Swapped blood with the Christmas lights.
They sat near the electrical box and smoked me away all night.
Track Name: Lemon
Elegance. Such an awkward dance.
I fumble with my keys, tap the beat on my knees.
Drum pattern on the glove box.
My chest thumps like a boom box.
I drive a smoker’s car.
Inhale it like I get paid to because thick smoke reminds me of you.

I would do anything to be with you at nine o’clock tonight.
If you drive slow down Canton Road the neon signs look sort of nice.
Everything that’s yellow reminds me of you.
No one gave me sweetness like the feeling I get from you.

Everyone else makes me feel insane.
Like picking lemons from an apple tree.
I found the citrus that I always wanted.
I found the person that I’ve always wanted.
I found the person that i’ve always wanted.

Always afraid to be a wash up so I stay out of the water.
But the temperature is getting hotter.
Set an example for your unborn daughter.
In your room while you sleep. Run my teeth across your feet.
I taste your skin and callouses. I’m here for you.
I’d rob the Marlboro factory for you.
I’ll be a goddamn thief for you.
And let the needle find the groove.
And make this old record sound brand new.

We both walked in knowing nothing.
I saw the hand of a friend.
My eyes have opened and I hope this never ends.
We both walked in knowing nothing.
I saw the hand of a friend.
My eyes have opened and I hope this never ends.

Worth it.
I’m worth it.
Worth it.
Yeah, I’m gonna make you sweat.
Track Name: Hard To Love
Thick headed boy, yeah, baby that’s me.
A small apple can fall from the shortest tree.
That’s like an earthquake to me.
Why is it so dark when you’re not lit?
Intoxicated flashlight.
Inconvenient zit.
Underwater hotel. There’s no vacancy.
Neighbors with fish and the coral reef.
That’s not where i’m gonna be.

I’m sorry for stalking you.
It’s only because I care.

Insecurity.
Got the best of me.
My priority is to set me love free.
Insecurity.
You got the best of me.
My priority is to set my love free.

I’ve got sandpaper hands and house sized feet.
But these minor things could mean less to me.
Cigarette dipped in blood.
Take a puff of me.
I’m as healthy as the honey from the newborn bee.
You got me internally.
Stained glass on the wall.
That we never see.
Unemployed for several months but honey, you never left me.

Safe haven for my love.
Safe haven for my love.
Safe haven for my love.

Insecurity.
Got the best of me.
My priority is to set me love free.
Insecurity.
You got the best of me.
My priority is to let my love free.

Let my love free.
Let my love free.
Let my love free.
Let my love free.
Let my love free.

Look deep inside yourself.
Look through your lifeless veins.
Who will read your eulogy and what will they say?
Did you give good material?
Echo loudly in a garage?
He broke into her vehicle he must like her a lot.

Look deep inside yourself.
Look through your lifeless veins.
Who will read your eulogy and what will they say?

I’ll die in a parking lot.
When I die i’ll miss you a lot.
Track Name: Burning For You
Candle wax dripping on my hand.
I'm burning for you.
Concrete kissed my salty skin.
Outside of the zoo.
Childhood best friend, what beautiful wings you have!
Do they flap when you get excited?
Don't get me excited.
I visit your grave on days when it rains.
Cause in my brain that's where your face remains.
No positive memories.
What thing took you from me.
Left me drenched in defeat. Picking cigarettes off of the street.
Mirror we meet again. Got a head like Stonehenge.
Where did those flowers go? Why haven't we spoken?
Hey where were you when I needed you.
Selfishly sitting in a crowded room.
Thinking it's a sheltered tomb.
Acting like I'm fresh out the womb.
Loving Keegan, I'll see you soon.
You're a weak man.
You lost your spirit, you lost a friend.
You lost a lifer who would have loved you 'til the end.
No positive memories.
What thing took you from me.
Left me drenched in defeat. Picking cigarettes off of the street.
Mirror we meet again. Got a head like Stonehenge.
Where did those flowers go?
Don't wanna let down my parents so I slide on my boots.
Is everyone's struggle apparent? Can you relate to my blues?
Losing someone who believed you.
Who believed what you saw.
Through the drugs and the glory days of God. I was with you through it all.
