Track Name: Atlanta, MI
And it was wrong, but I played along
With the bullshit story that you wanted to tell
Am I just a townie
Hovering on brick roads?
With onyx eyes, I ask to be let in
Leaning on the chain link, you'll never know
What you did to me, I have to pretend
And it's too late to contemplate
So I guess I'll just be wishing you well
Track Name: World In Your Hands
Everything is OK
Everything is cool
I got a million friends
I broke my own rule
You've got the world in your hands
So please don't knock me over
My balance is shot now
I'm bad at the approach
I suck at the approach
Track Name: Spiderbite
Things I can't say
Things I can't say out loud
It's stuff that you know
You know all about
If you really wanna be friends
Why aren't you picking up your phone?
Why am I at this movie on my own?
Ooh yeah, you're on me like a Spiderbite
You're on my mind
Things that I read
Things I read in books when I was small
Things that I know
I'm a regular know-it-all
If this is really the end...
Track Name: Gold Star
And you came out of your room to talk to me
At about 1:30 in the morning
It really made a difference to me
And we sat on your couch and watched TV
And I sat with my arm around you
Track Name: Sometimes I Dream When I'm Awake
I have a hard time admitting my inadequacies
But I can say I've got a long way to go
I never really get all that close to anyone
And there's something else you don't know
Sometimes I dream when I'm awake
Sometimes I don't give near as much as I take
And when we're close together
Up in your attic where no one ever goes
I find myself thinking of other places and other things
Distraction will take its toll
There's no call for hurt feelings, girl
It's just a part of my nurture to want to be somewhere else
So please don't go lying to your brothers now
And it's not like I don't kiss and hug you
You know that I do
Track Name: Don't Get Mad
It doesn't matter what you think
There will always be another
It doesn't matter what you know
Cuz we will always love eachother
Even though we're bad
Even though we're poison
I can't help it, I need you here
It doesn't matter what your hopes are
Cuz I'm always gonna be wrapped around your legs like a weight
It doesn't matter what my dreams are
Cuz you're always gonna be there to drown them
Don't get mad
Track Name: Must See TV
Grab yourself a beer and sit on the sofa
The show will be starting soon
I'm glad you're here, I'm glad you came over
I hate it!
There's some pizza in the fridge, and I've got some vodka
And you can text in the corner if you like
Look out the window at the world around you
We're so much safer in doors tonight
Track Name: Never Said
I feel nonplussed cuz I woke up late
Still drunk from the night before
It's four o'clock and I'm not hungry yet
I can see you walking out my door
I wish I never said it
The things I said to you
I got mean, it's what I do when I'm tired
It's how I'm wired
Track Name: Something
Something about your hair in the moonlight, or something about your smile
What more can I say?
It's hard to sleep alone
You're my dream boat
Or maybe something about how your hand feels, so soft and fragrant
And ever so nice
Something
Track Name: Reflections
You'll rue the day you left your youth and me behind
The sinking stone will never float
You're in trouble now and it's hard to fine
Ooh, ooh
She said her name was "Hope," she winked at me above her cup
Said "I might just take you home."
I didn't know the way, I got lost when she ran the red light
Tonight I'll sleep alone
Track Name: Philip Seymour Hoffman
Philip Seymour Hoffman
And Andy Kaufman
Me and my girl at the end of the world
I remember waiting in the summer, when the air smelled like pavement
And the sun was so hot that it melted my eyes
Make sure you say hello, before you go
Stop by and say hello
I will not scold you, nor attempt to control you
Cuz I always hated falling down in front of girlfriends
But where's your decency, the concern you supposedly had for me
Did you lose when you dislocated my jaw?
Track Name: Key To My Place
Lock the door after you come in
Pull the blanket up to your chain
Wake me up if you wanna fuck
Oh, my babe! I love you so
How much you hurt me, you'll never know
