Track Name: Bad Set of Moods
If I tell you I don’t need sunshine I want you to call out my bluff
And if I tell you that I don’t feel fine I want you to say I’m enough
Cuz I got a bad set of moods and I think they’re gonna last longer than you
I’ve got a bad set of moods and i think it's gonna be a while
Be a while 'til they move

If you catch me asleep in the daytime I want you to wake my ass up
And if you catch me humming “Take Time” I want you to tell me “Shut Up”

All across the shore
You feel it even more
Your body hits the floor
You lose

You wake and go to school
You’re feeling like a fool
Cuz no one understands
Your mood
Track Name: Propose to Me
Feeling fine feel like I wanna go outside
Life’s alright but only for a while
Then you get old and you slow down

And I can't surmise what it’d be like to tie my ties
Life’s alright but only for a while
Then you get old and you slow down

And I don’t know who I would call if I fall down
in the dead of the night and am not alright

And if we should drown in all the stuff that brings us down
Hit me up cus’ darling I’ll come around
And we’ll get old and we’ll slow down

Cus’ when feeling fine it gets so rare you wonder why
You stay alive then darling it is time
That you ask me to be your wife

Propose to me
Darling take a knee, oh baby get close to me
I can't promise anything, oh baby propose to me, propose to me, oh, propose to me
Tonight

Feeling fine feel like I wanna go outside
The weathers nice and I just paid my bills on time

Feeling fine, feeling fine, feeling fine, feeling fine

Know it’s time when everything is settling right
Its grey outside but I got you right by my side
Track Name: Chancin' It
Over the water’s flow
100 feet down below
But oh my god I feel like chancing it
Giving up and letting go

Tired of the ebbs and flows
Drive to another show
And oh my god I feel like chancing it
Giving up and letting go

Letting Go

Tired of the life I know
Raining with no rainbow
So oh my god I feel like chancing it
Head full of mud and you know I’m chancing it
Tasted my blood and its sour who gives a shit
Giving up and letting go
Track Name: Could Be Nothing
There are women who think I’m something but you are a woman who knows I’m nothing
I’m in love with you and don’t know how not to
You keep on pushing my goddamn buttons

There are men who think they’re something but I am a man who knows he’s nothing
Trying to get though but sometimes it’s hard to
When I wanna stick my head in the oven

I keep your contact solution next to the once a day vitamins in case you come back again, it will be the same
And if you need me I will be here next to the once a day vitamins in case you come back again, I don't think I’ve changed

There are people who think they’re something but you look at me and you don't see nothing
I’m in love with you but what you put me through
It lets me know that we could be nothing
Track Name: Waterslide
Do you wanna die? Black and white
Cheer up everything is fine
Darling look into my eyes and I’ll try to think up something nice

Said are you gonna cry?
“No, I’m fine”
She tears up and lets the water slide down passed her breast onto her thigh
While I try to think up something nice
Track Name: Sad Boy Freestyle
I’m sad
You were the best friend that I had
And now you’re gone and all is drab
Now you’re gone and all is bad
But we’ll meet again
I’m not sure how or why or when
Not sure as frenemies or friends
But I am sure we’ll meet again

In the moonlight

Damn
This stupid place is all I am
Where the great beer’s made by the working man
Where the fears maintained with a shaking hand
Get out while you can
And if you can my baby run
Cus in the city with all these churches
You can see what god has done

In the moonlight

You wait to see the man and when you finally shake his hand you’ll ask him
“How do you do?”
He’ll show you around his place and when you see his master plan you’ll ask him
“How could you do this to me?”

Cheer up, fuck up
Get up, drink up, eat up or shut up
You’re too young to die you, you don't try and you give up
You’re so down you don’t even know what is up
Track Name: Our New Deal
You and I we have lost the will to fly
In the land of milk and pie we’re down about it
And I can try to turn water into sprite, but if the ice is going to melt either way then why should I

Was in your place when you said you needed space
I can see by the look on your face you thought about it
Said I can change but you were not entertained
So we walked home in the rain and cried about

I won’t see you 'til I need to that was our new deal

Dot the “i”s
We have lost our fucking minds
All the things holding us down have come untied
Future of mine, it is ugly and unkind
All the music’s dead but we are still alive

I won’t see you 'til I need to that was our new deal
And if I can’t see you when I need to who will help me deal

You and I we can give it another try
I can grab some food if you can grab some wine
Perhaps this time a joke will get us through the night
And I won’t cry because you start to cry
Track Name: JD & Me
Chubby little second grade pre-teen in school on the north side of Milwaukee
fifth graders found me ripe to tease
fifth graders found me easy

Called me over to the evergreen they said they had to warn me secretly
Jeffrey Dahmer lives right down the street
Told me I was just plump enough to eat

Now I’m terrified Jeffery will come and get me
Terrified Jeffrey’s a little hungry

Get off the school bus I’m all alone
Open the door but there’s no one home
I rush to turn on every light we own
Scared to have the meat sucked from my bones

I asked my mom if Jeff was real
She said “no honey, cheer up, you ain’t no meal”
But that didn’t chase off all my fears
Cuz hey here’s me after all these years

I’m terrified Jeffrey will come and get me
Terrified Jeffrey’s a little hungry for me
Track Name: Amputee
Just because I said I would doesn't mean I really will
Just because your touch feels good doesn't mean it always will
I don’t know where this comes from
I just know I want it gone

Thinking of an older time I was yours and you were mine
In hindsight everything was fine but I guess hindsight can lie

Darling wake up
He’s gonna make a fool of you
Oh wake up
No matter what he says to you
He’s gonna send you back to me
And you can take a piece
I’ll be your amputee
Track Name: Cheer Up
Do you wanna die? Black and white
Cheer Up everything is fine
Darling look into my eyes
and I’ll try to think up something nice

Did i forget a line? Whoops
That’s alright
Cheer up everything is fine
Darling give this one a try
And I’ll find i works most of the time

Do you wanna die? So do I
But cheer up everything is fine
Darling look into my eyes
and I’ll try to think up something nice

Did I fuck up your life? Whoops
That’s alright
Cheer up everything
Darling give this one a try
and I’ll find it works most of the time
