Track Name: A Song For My Regrets
How did things end up like this
Isn’t it so bizarre?
Every night we lay our heads
Wondering who we are
Our bank accounts have low amounts
We don’t have money to spend
We feed ourselves from other’s shelves
And steal from half our friends
Yeah there’s no way to know
Which way to go
When none of us have a map
But the miles we sweep
With our dusty feet
Will help us bridge the gap
Last I heard you fell into
A cycle in which you are trapped
Who would have guessed that folk like us
Would ever turn out like that
It goes to show that even though
Our futures may look bright
Sometimes we choose a choice that will lose
And we fall down in spite
I’d tell you the truth if only knew
Just what I was lying about
And the simple facts are too abstract
They’d only fill you with doubt
I guess if I could say one thing
To a younger and smarter me
I’d say don’t you wait, don’t hesitate
There are place you need to be
Yeah there’s no way to know
Which way to go
When none of us have a map
But the miles we sweep
With our dusty feet
Will help us bridge the gap
Track Name: Amateur Plasma Salesman
Clothes all ripped and torn
And none of them fit me anymore
Pack it on up and slam the door
Forget the day that I was born
Ditch this place like it’s Nebraska
Change my name, move to Alaska
Run so fast upset my asthma
Sell my blood and plasma
And I know that you think
This dumb kid should really see a shrink
But at least I tried my best
Every time I got obsessed
I felt so blessed to be that pest
To all the girls I never impressed
I don’t need love anyway
When I’ve got these songs here to play
Girls just waste my time away
Now I gotta try and explain
To my mom that I know
I’ll never have the family that she wants
If I go to California
Maybe I’ll find phantasmagoria
In the people who ignore ya
It’ll be some kind of euphoria
If I go to California
If I go to California
If I go to California
If I go
Track Name: Mecha-Trump vs. The U.S.A
Way down South where the sunlight leaves a mark
And the muddy alligators rise up from the dark
In the bayous, in those Cajun river bends
Where the whole world is tumbling to its end
He will be there, he will stake a claim or two
So when you see me, you know just what to do
Yeah, take me home
Take me home
Take me home again
Far from there where no clouds are in the sky
I could see for miles even with my bad eyes
I’d see flowers, I’d see amber waves of grain
I’d see a coal fired steam engine train
Coming to take me home
Coming to take me home again
Yeah, take me home
Take me home
Take me home again
Take me home
Take me home
Take me home again
Yeah, take me home
Take me home
Take me home again
Track Name: Everything Will Be Alright
Those days were long
But these nights are longer
And my mind is gone
‘Cause it loves to wander
Through the words inside my head
Where the echoes will spread
And they say
Keep on loving through the darkest of nights
Keep on searching for any signs of light
Everything will be alright
It really hurts to say
That you could feel better
But there’s another way
Wrapped up in letters
Hold on to what you heard
And don’t let go of those words
Keep on loving through the darkest of nights
Keep on searching for any signs of light
Everything will be alright
Everything will be alright
Everything will be alright
Track Name: Or Will It?
I’m burning alive
In this frozen over hell
Or maybe I’m just cold
It’s way too hard to tell
And so I ran
To a place worth running to
I made my way to where
The water lilies bloom
And from the peaks
I will scream it out so loud
My feeble voice
Hanging in the clouds
I feel alive
In this dead and dying land
Cast out among the rocks
A fist in both my hands
And so I ran
To a place worth running to
I made my way to where
The water lilies bloom
And from the peaks
I will scream it out so loud
I need some help
But I’m way too fucking proud
Track Name: HEAD TRAUMA!
HEAD TRAUMA!
I’ve got a brain and it works I think
I mean I think it works not it works so I think
I think
Maybe my screws are a little loose
But that doesn’t mean that I’m of no use
I hope, I hope
That my brain doesn’t quit on me
And the clouds outside don’t spit on me today

My brain’s just a little out of whack
Things could be worse I could have a heart attack
Or I could be blind
And hopefully someday I’ll see
All the things that people do for me
In my life, in my life
But I’m not ready for love like that
It would hit me in the face like a baseball bat I know
Track Name: Chemical Reactions
I see you standing, yeah I see you there
And the way you’re standing it seems like you don’t care
The way the wind blows the way and messes your hair
But it’s you, just you and you’re just standing there
And these chemical reactions will be the death of me

And what’s this that I see you doing now?
Are you calling it quits are you taking a bow?
Well let me tell you it doesn’t matter how
But you really got to hold on now
And these chemical reactions will be the death of me
Track Name: A Song For The Hopeless
I don’t know what to do today
Do I go outside and swim in the bay
Or do I stay inside
Bite my tongue and swallow my pride


Between all this indecision
and bad news on the television
I can’t stay here anymore
I’m packin’ my bags and heading north


Maybe it’s okay to grieve
But I don’t think it’s right to leave
I don’t know what to do
But I think I’ll see it through
Track Name: Rolling the Dice
I’m not much of a gambling man
But I bet you’d know what I mean
If I said that I’m doing all that I can
To maintain a little self-esteem

I set aside time for my idling mind
To waste away in my room all alone
But all of these thoughts feel like tangled up knots
And the deafening silence drones

When I’m drunk I don’t dream, I don’t wake up and scream
I don’t stare at the ceiling all night
I don’t beat myself up, I don’t break myself down
And I guess that makes it alright

So I’ll wake up at noon with a bowl and spoon
Filled with cheap noodles and rice
But the more moons that wane the less I feel same
I guess it all comes at a price
Track Name: Will The Circle Be Unbroken?
There are loved ones in the glory,
Whose dear forms you often miss;
When you close your earthly story,
Will you join them in their bliss?

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, by and by?
Is a better home awaiting
In the sky, in the sky?

You remember happy times when
All the rain clouds cleared the sky
But the rainbows fade away and
It still hurts to say goodbye

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, by and by?
Is a better home awaiting
In the sky, in the sky?

You can picture all their faces
Stuck in time when they were young
And you think of all the places,
And the things you’ve never done.

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, by and by?
Is a better home awaiting
In the sky, in the sky?
