Track Name: Blackout Drunk (Things Really Aren't That Bad)
things really aren't that bad

what are you running from
he's not the only one
feeling cornered, giving up
telling me that you're done
you see no other way
Seattle sky's are grey
pack your things into your Honda
you drive away

heading east on i-90
put in a new cd
crime as forgiven
by Against Me!
and a mix of songs I wrote
when you left me broke
somethings never change

things really aren't that bad

no more wasting time
it's all on the line
fresh air, cigarette
no excuses why
you always blamed yourself
or your mental health
blackout drunk
at someone else's house

always a runaway
Track Name: Cheap Box Wine
After the summer I'll moved in with my drummer
Because a 15 passenger van doesn't make a great pad
When it's 13 below and there's 3 feet to snow
I'm sorry but you can't come home with me

You can't come home with me
no
you can't come home there is no home for me
no

So I stay at her place
We watch Lost and Office Space
It's great to have a friend who will let you sleep in her bed
Drinking cheap box wine and having a great time
I'm sorry but could I stay another night

No you can't even though I want you to
no you can't even though you want me to
Track Name: Can We Not
what you been thinking because I’ve been drinking
you know I swear, I swear I’d never do it alone
and when you found me you were unhappy
you want to tell me tell me you’re better on your own

In the morning we will talk about it
in this moment can we not at all

you have a meltdown, come on now calm down
you know I swear, I swear you’re not alone
tell me you don’t care, you know I’ve been there
you can’t do this can’t do this on your own

in the morning we will talk about it
in this moment can we not at all

don’t let this feeling pass you by
it’s going to happen if we try

in the morning we will talk about it
in this moment can we not at all
we can’t talk at all
just how it goes
Track Name: Stitches
it’s been a couple weeks now
maybe two or three
you’ve been texting me
quite frequently
and I subscribe to you
like the Minnesota Daily
but your crosswords
got me confused and angry

don’t act like you didn’t know what you were thinking
don’t expect me to be forgiving
don’t treat me like I was the one worth leaving
and stop texting me

I caught you cheating

like a needle and a thread, I’ll pull through (pulling through)
and I’ve got the stitches to prove (prove it, oh you've got to prove it)
that I’m disinfecting every cut scape and bruise (disinfecting, dis dis infecting)
keeping my distance from the likes of you

you want to let me know when you're in town again
think we could work it out you want to be "just friends"
but our story has already had a beginning middle end
the sequel's not going to happen
Track Name: Wrestling Rhinos
in the early morning
we’ll still be up
we've been wrestling rhinos
making out on roof tops
and when she calls me
I hit ignore
because I don’t have time
for her anymore

I could dance on top of squad cars
I could yell in a public library
I want to make it know to everyone I see
she’s the one for me

every night
it’s something new
tonight we’re riding bicycles on the moon
come tomorrow
if I don’t ever come back
you can sell all my things and keep the cash

I could dance on top of squad cars
I could yell in a public library
I want to make it know to everyone I see
That she’s the one for me

been stopping trains
I’m making plans
worked along side these people
struggling first hand
I'm planting gardens
sowing seeds
when this weather changes
we’ll have everything we need

I could dance on top of squad cars
I could yell in a public library
I want to make it know to everyone I see
she’s the one for me
she’s the one for me
revolution is all I can see
Track Name: Wait
wait before you go
I need to know the answers to these questions
so you weren't alone
how can I know when you're alone and not alone
if you think I'm just going to sit around and wait
I need to know before you go

where has your passion gone
do these lyrics mean nothing
are we all just clapping along
is everybody trying to make a profit
is it all about dollar signs and your total daily hits
well if they offer you the world make sure to read the fine print
before you go I need to know

you try and you try but you can't make this last
so it dies and it dies and now that's in the past

I need I need and I need
you take you take and you take
I need I need and I need
but you take advantage of me

so let go
you'll be free
