Vacationland 01:42
Down here in Portland Up here in Maine Living on the ocean in the salty air Is driving me insane So I’ll count up my blessings Yeah I’ll count ‘em all up twice And this time around maybe I’ll find one I missed And I’ll feel alright Down here in Portland Down here in Portland I’m afraid I’ll live forever I’m afraid of growing old and gray Like a bottom-feeding lobster in a funnel trap Until the end of all his days And I know it gets lonely I guess I know it all too well If I could just stay put for an hour or two I might break out of this shell Down here in Portland Down here in Portland Down here in Portland Down here in Portland Where you can’t get there from here Down here in Portland

In My Head 02:21
I’ll wake up just to fall back asleep It feels like something’s hidden deep In my head In my head Call it bad timing call it bad luck Call it predictable but I’m stuck In my head In my head In my head It’s where the problems start That nervous pinkish thing is falling apart In my head Every smile is a theater prop As I try to make the voices stop In my head In my head And most days are better than not But that isn’t saying a lot In my head In my head In my head It’s where the problems start That nervous pinkish thing is falling apart In my head

Dark Hollow 04:24
I'd rather be in some dark hollow Where the sun don't ever shine Than to be in some big city In a small room with a girl on my mind So blow your whistle freight train Take me far on down the track I'm goin' away I'm leavin' today I'm goin' and I'm never comin' back I'd rather be in some dark hollow Where the sun don't ever shine Than to see you another man's darling Well I'd probably lose my mind So blow your whistle freight train Take me far on down the track I'm goin' away I'm leavin' today I'm goin' but I'm never comin' back I'd rather be in some dark hollow Where that sun don't ever shine Than to be home alone Knowin' that you're gone And to know you'll never be mine So blow your whistle freight train Take me far on down the track I'm goin' away I'm leavin' today I'm goin' and I'm never comin' back I'm goin' away I'm leavin' today I'm goin' but I'm never comin' back

I told the daffodils I told the whippoorwills just how pretty you smile Yes I told them all about you And I told every little bird Every single little word that you say is worthwhile Yes I told them all about you Well I told the moon and every little star that shines above About the way you roll those pretty eyes and how you love Each little honeybee knows it's gonna be a honeymoon for two Yes I told them all about you I told the daffodils I told the whippoorwills just how pretty you smile Yes I told them all about you And I told every little bird Every single little word that you say is worthwhile Yes I told them all about you Well I told the moon and every little star that shines above About the way you roll your pretty eyes and how you love Each little honeybee knows there's gonna be a honeymoon for two Yes I told them all about you Well I told the moon and every little star that shines above About the way you roll those pretty eyes and how you love Each little honeybee knows there's gonna be a honeymoon for two Yes I told them all about you

Thanks, Me! 02:21
I miss the way that record played Broken on repeat all day I’ve never felt so lonely in my life And now I'm grown up I can see The awful place this world must be I couldn’t feel more useless if I tried Good times are coming They should be here any day If they never get here We can fake them anyway Until we’re comfortable Days turn into weeks and months Time runs out all once I've never felt so wasteful in my life I'd give up most anything To see what yesterday might bring I haven't been myself for quite sometime Good times are coming They should be here any day If they never get here We can fake them anyway Until we’re comfortable

Like a mass of flesh and protein I’ve been finding myself in bad dreams A sky littered with fire and laser beams As the world is conquered by machines And I think I know just what this means I think Hell is bursting at the seams Where do the bad people go When the gates of Hell overflow Where do the bad people go When the gates of Hell overflow Maybe it’s time to set things right After all these countless days and nights Before the souls inside their codes ignite And the robots launch their final fight The grace of their God will shine out bright When the virus steps into the light Where do the bad people go When the gates of Hell overflow Where do the bad people go When the gates of Hell overflow Where do the bad people go When the gates of Hell overflow Where do the bad people go When the gates of Hell overflow

I’ve lost damn near more than I can stand to lose And when I lay my head at night it’s overflowing with the blues It might take some time for the top to boil off Two crushed beer cans in my pocket stumbling through the night This cold and empty winter air is trying to pick a fight And I’m drunk and lonely as the night is long So I’m going down the road feelin’ bad, bad, bad And the dreams I hold inside are the worst I’ve ever had Maybe I just need some space to clear my head But the worst place to do that is lying here in bed When all my thoughts surround me in the dark Remind myself I’m young, still young I’ve got plenty of time But I’ve got no goddamn idea what’s coming down the line One of these days I’ll pack my bags and go You told me once hell maybe you said it twice But I’m stubborn and I’m young and I’m immune to good advice You said “Don’t just wait around put up a fight” As long as I keep running they can’t throw their dirt on me But can I outrun the future we’ll just have to wait and see Although none of this shit will matter in ten years So why the hell am I awake afraid of all my fears Maybe I’m too scared to let them die

I went down to St. James Infirmary Saw my baby there She was stretched out on a long, white table So cold, so sweet, so fair Let her go, let her go, God bless her Wherever, wherever she may be She can search this old wide world over She won’t ever find another man like me When I die bury me in straight laced shoes, A box-back coat and a Stetson hat Put a twenty dollar gold piece on my watch chain So the boys will know that I died standin' pat

Love is a universal language Spoken wherever you may roam And through all the heartbreaking anguish Love will carry us back home On days when you're feeling lonely When all your worries start to grow Remember one thing if only Love will carry us back home And I'll see you again Crowed out the rooster to the hen Love will carry us back home You can try to outrun your trouble Halfway from everything you know And if the distance ever doubles Love will carry us back home No matter how much you’re hurt And if the pain starts to show Place your trust in these words Love will carry us back home And I'll see you soon Cried the wolf to the moon Love will carry us back home When you look into the mirror And see nothing of your own Though you may wish it were clearer Love will carry us back home When you wake up in the morning The sun will make itself known Though it may come without warning Love will carry us back home And I miss you my dear When you are not here Love will carry us back home Love will carry us back home Love will carry us back home
