Track Name: belts
when a needle enters your skin
when a needle enters your veins
when the influence slips inside
when it backs you into the wall

and i just watched you do it.
and i just popped a pill and watched you.

when i wanted it to work for us
when i wanted it to work

when i let you do it.
when the world spun
and i felt closer to you then.
i felt much closer to you

i let you do it.
you faded with it.

i don't know if i liked it
i don't know if i like you anymore
i think i might have liked it
i think i might have loved you.
Track Name: skinned
hey layla, you're gone
and you're never coming back

and I meant to stop you
you're on my mind
you're on my skin

if only i could hold you
if only i could hold
your life over mine

i wouldn't have you on my skin
i would have you on my skin
Track Name: spectra
i guess this year was coming to me
after what i did to amanda

i guess she finally got tired of me
and i don't blame her

who do i blame
for what i did to myself
and you

tell your dad i said i'm sorry
that i wasn't there when you needed me.
i know i messed up.

tell your mom i said i'm sorry
for lying about my age.
i only wanted a beer.

tell your brother i said i'm sorry
for leading you on.
Track Name: cold sweats
my big sister
and my best friend
have always been right
about me. about you

these feelings won't last forever.
eventually all things die.
and when you die,
will i be there?
will i still care?

growing up is so hard.
i would give up
if i knew how to
Track Name: traffic
god bless america
but god damn americans
i wanna rip the throat
of every fucking hypocrite

my patience is running thin
and i don't know where to begin
these fucks are not my friends
so i don't have an ear to lend

i'll just go
Track Name: shark week
i haven't died yet
but these sharks won't leave me
two years ago in april
she started to lose her mind
we drank all of the whisky.
we had the blankest year.
we had a few on main street
underage

i drove her car
to her apartment
she said to leave
the past in the past
she told me to
forget about taylor.
she told me to
forget about chelsea.
but i still can't
forget about chelsea
i still can't
forget about shark week

georgia seems so far away
Track Name: special
you wanna settle down
you told me, but look i
don't want that

nobody ever got anywhere
without takin the engine
nobody ever got anywhere
until somebody built one.

everybody thinks everybody thinks they're so special.
nobody ever wants to accept they're not.
yr not special.
to me.
but maybe to somebody.

i'm into western expansion
yr all about southern pride.
but i want the gold
Track Name: novacola
waking up in your living room
with my head next to your best friend.
or at least she says she is

why did you say yes to virginia?
i thought i'd stay in virginia
or LA. or nashville. or austin.

lying on the floor
while the blinds are quivering
staring at my feet
while the scars heal.

i'm so cold.
i'm so sick of being alone

i should have listened to you.
to my best friend.
savannah's a liar.
everyone can't be your best friend.
Track Name: montezuma
i better go to sleep now
i think ill close my eyes
i better go to sleep now
before i make more mistakes

what good is fucking up
if you don't learn from fucking up?

my god i'm a jealous bastard
i want everything my friends have
i want talent. i want handouts.
i want a girl to call my own.

i never thought that i could be someone, so i stopped trying
and everyone i know has turned out to be a disappointment

so as the race turns to shit
refuse to join the problem
remove yourself.
Track Name: oh man
hit a car and i ran away
the cops called home and hour later the same day
went out on a friday night
lookin for a love but there was no one in sight
had a crush on a girl in class
she told me bout her girlfriend and i felt like an asshole
played a gig in a shit piece club
they said don't come back it just wasn't black enough

goddamn i cannot win
oh man i lose again
Track Name: lucille ball
i dunno where you are, but i want you
i dunno where you came from, but i want you
i dunno if you love me but i want you
i know that you don't miss me, but i want you

i gave up a summer for you and you
just left me behind but i would do it
all over again because i'm a fucking idiot for you.

i know that i'm a loner but i want you.
i'm a piece of shit but i want you
you never said you were sorry, but i want you.
i'm a fucking idiot for you.
Track Name: mean
i won't make it to twenty-three if i don't get sleep

i sent you twenty two messages
i miss you.
i sent you twenty two messages
that's when i knew. that's
when i realized

i don't mean nothing to you.
i don't mean anything to you.
i don't mean nothing to no one.
but i miss you.

too young for me and too young for you.
and too young to be so cynical.
too old to be so naive.

you were never that great to begin with
but i miss you.
i thought you were everything i wanted.
wrote you so many times
just tell to you
that i missed you.
but i don't mean nothing to you.
i don't mean shit to anyone.
Track Name: closure
i fell in love with you
but I didn't tell you
and when I told you
you were in charleston
oh god fucking

I wish I
would have said
something when it
mattered

and I would go to the holy city
every weekend if I could
but I've got responsibilities
and a lot of questions.

and no one
feels the way I do
about you

I would stay up every night
staring into yr eyes
if you'd let me
so let me

when we drink
shots of Evan Williams
I feel fine and normal
and that's different
and I love it
and I love you

I hate mirrors
and I hate losing you
and I hate letting go
and I hate closure
and I hate getting older.

i am getting older
