Track Name: Punk Rock Blues
She said she had herself the best summer
And I'm not at the least one bit concerned because
If there's one thing I know
You feed the crazy it grows
My heart's invited to dinner
Yesterday it seemed so easy
Tomorrow repeats in the back of my mind
I did so good you thought I was cheating
No proof, you threw me at the back of the line
I hate this feeling inside of me
Can't handle all this anxiety
I'm doing just fine
I think I got it (yeah, I think I got it)
I think I got it (yeah, I think I got it too)
I think I got it (yeah, I think I got it, dudes)
I think we got it, it's true
We got the punk rock blues
No one seems to understand why I'm acting this way
It's not my fault the plot played out like this
These are the words they just make me say
The spotlights on me
It's got me sweating
It's got me second guessing
I hate this feeling inside of me
Can't handle all this anxiety
I'm doing just fine
I think I got it (yeah, I think I got it)
I think I got it (yeah, I think I got it too)
I think I got it (yeah, I think I got it, dudes)
I think we got it, it's true
We got the punk rock blues
She said she had herself the best summer
And I'm not at the least one bit concerned because
If there's one thing I know
You feed the crazy it grows
My heart's invited to dinner
Track Name: Pen Island
We grow old and our skin grows cold
And now I'm wondering how
This shit will play itself out
We ran with mythical creatures
But now we're running out of time
As we collectively play catch up
We haven't left the starting line
It's a sad state that I'm in
This is where my mind has been
I'm a bundle of potential
So don't you try and get ahead
No hope from the supernatural
Yeah, you know what Nietzsche said
I'm a bundle of potential
And it's getting to my head
It sounds cliche to babble on how I'm tired
I'm not the first and sure as hell won't be the last
To look out of their front window
And see what we're fighting for
Then turn on the television
And flip through the day shows like a chore
It's a sad state that I'm in
This is where my mind has been
I'm a bundle of potential
So don't you try and get ahead
No hope from the supernatural
Yeah, you know what Nietzsche said
I'm a bundle of potential
And it's getting to my head
Ain't it a shame that the young waste their youth
As the old sit and watch their movies that they produced
And they all stick around hoping a sequel will preview
It's a sad state that we're in
Track Name: Mouth to Mouth
Kiss me quick
My tonsils itch
Both my eyes are fully fixed on your fair-skinned, lovely figure
Pull the arrow from its quiver, and pierce this bleeding heart
It came to be in a sporadic swirling sea
Filled with my misery, I learned why I'm vexed
You see, it's the love I was deprived of
As water fills your lungs
If mouth to mouth can save you, I'm your man
But I laugh when you start asking for my hand
Oh, like I planned
Hahahahaha
Track Name: Kafkaesque (Hit the Lights)
Hey there, how's it going?
How you doing?
Oh really, that's cool
Oh me, I've been a having a real lack of sleep at night
So I'm coming at you to try to make this right
I've been scratching this itch for quite some time
Something's bugging me I feel I lost my mind
(It's crawling through the walls)
It's scaring me, It's scaring me
(I hear it creeping down the halls)
I know that I'm not crazy
I saw my brain once on the floor
I hit the light, it scurried towards the door
(Hit the lights, hit the lights, hit the lights, but it shines too bright)
I flicked them on, they shone too bright
I blinked my eyes, they went out of sight
(Hit the lights, hit the lights, hit the lights, it's gonna end tonight)
(So tell me, how does that make you feel?)
What a strange question
Just teach me how to kill
This infestation in my head
Has made me scared to leave my bed
Problems won't die, they multiply
And I finally found the reason why
I blocked the route for my escape
I need your poisons for my pain
(It's crawling through the walls)
It's scaring me, It's scaring me
(I hear it creeping down the halls)
I know that I'm not crazy
I saw my brain once on the floor
I hit the light, it scurried towards the door
(Hit the lights, hit the lights, hit the lights, but it shines too bright)
I flicked them on, they shone too bright
I blinked my eyes, they went out of sight
(Hit the lights, hit the lights, hit the lights, it's gonna end tonight)
I've set a few traps
I don't know where it's at
Armed with knee pads and baseball bats (And I'm not crazy)
It won't get away this time
Just need to learn to use my mind
I saw my brain once on the floor
I hit the light, it scurried towards the door
(Hit the lights, hit the lights, hit the lights, but it shines too bright)
I saw my brain once on the floor
(He saw his brain once on the floor)
I'm not crazy
Track Name: Just Another Day
I should have shut my mouth right at the start, but the lessons never stick
Spazzing hard from the words, you said I'm used to these ticks
And after all, it's just another day
Another way for me to say
This emotion that you're bringing me won't make it through the night
You should have known
Go to the show, cause I'm too cool for radio
People fit like puzzles to a T
Maybe I'm getting wasted, or maybe it's me
And after all, it's just another day
Another way, a sick, sad display
Dudes, you're killing
We won't make it through the night
You should have known
Do I really have to splay this out on the floor?
All on your own
These words were quaint, now I'm out the door
Yeah yeah, wah wah
No, we're not gonna beat 'em, so we'll join 'em
No, we're not gonna beat em
You should have known that you're writhing like the worm left to squirm
We rock the boat, you're just on board
It makes me go
Yeah yeah, Wah wah
No we're not gonna beat 'em, so we'll join em
We like causing a scene
No we're not gonna beat 'em, so we'll join em
We like causing a scene
All we ever wanted was your love
But this isn't exactly what I was thinking of
We're not selling ourselves, we're selling a scene
We'll be what ever you want
We'll be what ever you need
All we ever wanted was your love
