Track Name: crush
crush it til you’re chillin in a casket


qt moody judy fallin into despair,

can’t control anything, not even my hair,

try to keep it positive, but nobody cares,

wonder if my future will ever be there.

sick of leavin work for these panic attacks,

wondering if i’ll ever hear my vocals on wax

i should call it quits and just try to relax

but i literally don’t know how to stop writing tracks

plus it’s my outlet, so i guess i’m gonna have to keep pushin and crush


i feel crazy when i’m beefin with my best friend

and when i worry about my ex-girlfriend

sometimes i swear my life is in a whirlwind,

and though i spiral, i will never stop crushing shit.
Track Name: you know who you are
am i in love, or am i just bored?

i think you’re takin it too far,

but i won’t let you

i barely even know who you are,

and whatcha know about me?


i stayed up all night thinking about this

i want what i want and who i want all the time

i want it all


i felt your breath on the back of my neck

in the back of my car,

and i enjoyed it, every last second.

i heard you finally got that ring,

well congratulations

i hope you’re happy


i stayed up all night thinking about it


one man’s trash is another man’s girlfriend.

one man’s trash was right all along.
Track Name: black sheep
i’m trying to quit,

but all i want are cigarettes and coffee,

or cigarettes and whiskey.

my mother says i’ll end up like my grandfather,

but he seems happy.

i wish we talked more.


i wish i felt the way i feel about my friends

with my family

but it never feels right.

i wish it felt alright

i wish i felt alright.


i’m trying to quit,

but all i want is to buy new clothes and whiskey

or old clothes and cheap wine

my niece thinks i don’t want to get to know her

that makes me feel crummy

i wish we had more in common.
Track Name: carolina, i love you, but you're bringing me down
this bed feels like a casket

and this house feels like a mausoleum

and i don’t know, but i’ve been told

that you’ve never tried if you’ve never left home


i’ve got friends in california

i’ve got friends in new orleans

i’ve got friends in new york city,

but i don’t know what that all means


i ain’t got no fucking money

i ain’t got no future here

i don’t hate south carolina,

but i refuse to die here.
Track Name: okay, cupid
all my friends wanna fuck my friends

but their friends don’t know i exist

all my friends over thirty are all divorced

almost makes me never wanna get married


but i don’t know.


i’m so good at beating myself up

i’m so good at beating myself


i have a crush on every girl

but i’m not sure how to commit to just one


and i don’t know what’s going on with me,

with all my goddamn insecurity,

and why does nothing new seem new to me?

and why can’t i sing fucking beautifully?
Track Name: honestly, bb.
i don’t wanna fight with my mom anymore

i don’t wanna ask for my money anymore

i don’t wanna wait for my time.


i don’t wanna cheat on my girl anymore

i don’t wanna wait around on school anymore

i don’t wanna give up on my future.


we’ll never grow up


honesty

honestly
honesty is the best policy, honestly.
Track Name: sad sack
there’s a lot that’s changing

and i don’t think i like it

but, god, i hope i’ll figure it out

i don’t wanna be alone here

but i don’t wanna leave yet

i just need a year,

and then i think i’ll get out of town.


let’s get it together


no one wants to hear me whine

and i know i’m disappointing

all my friends, my mom, and my dad

i don’t wanna make this a race,

but everyone’s beating me,

and it sucks playing catch up,

but i think i’m all out of gas.


at the risk of sounding like a

teenager again, i feel like no one understands me

i don’t wanna

seem like a sad sack, but i don’t know how to relax

medication feels like

such a fucking cop out, but that’s all i can think about

all i wanna do is

get it together.
Track Name: can't wait
i can’t wait

for the day that i become

an alcoholic

i can’t wait

until i have something

to blame my depression on


i don’t wanna be so down

but, god, i feel like i could use some help here


i can’t wait

until girls stop telling me

that i’m perfect

i can’t wait

until i have my dream job

so i don’t feel like the last six years were worthless


i don’t wanna be so down

but i don’t know how to ask for help when i need it.
Track Name: robin
stayed up all night

waiting for you

to come over,

baby you knew

that i wouldn’t go out with my friends

i stayed in


because i want you.


baby i want you.
Track Name: die alone
i miss being the person that people relied on,

and i miss holding the shoulder that my friends cried on.

and here i am.

a speck on this earth.

just the same as i began.

and i’m not pining,

i just feel like i won’t be here

for much longer


i don’t wanna die alone.


call me bitter

call me rude

sorry i just get sad and lonely sometimes

you don’t wanna see me shirtless

you don’t wanna be with me,

but you should

at least i think so
because i don’t wanna die alone.
