Track Name: Bed Head
Who am I?
I want to run.
I want to pace into the sun, change my name as you hold your gun against my head.
You fill me with lead.
I will get used to bed head, I will get used to bed head.

Ooh Ooh.

I am not who you think I am
A buzzard who swims in the sand
And you are not who you once were
Who are you and what have you done with her?

Who am I?
I want to make.
I want to help and procreate, fill the Earth with my mistakes.
I want to change not myself, not my name.
I wanna get used to this game, let me earn my own appraisals.

I am not who you think I am
A buzzard who swims in the sand
And you are not who you once were
Who are you and what have you done with her?

On the road it seems like forever, but it's time.

It's time!

I will get used to bed head, I will get used to bed head.
I go up and down can't pay attention.
I go up and down can't pay attention.
I've got bed head.
Track Name: Terrible Texter
I'm a terrible texter- can't be decoded by professors in the field
If I could I would erase myself
From your vision
From our future
For my health

So is what I say okay? I'll write home every day.
There's never a worry, my friend he can concur he happens to reside by me, okay?

I'm a terrible person, most certainly worse than you
I've been avoiding all my promises
What a great life I've lived so far

How is what I feel so wrong?
It's been like this for so long?
It’s a crime for me to think and jail time for me to dream about possibilities
She never delivers
I really want to give her something well received

I'm a terrible tester
Can't retain the knowledge that I have received
If I grappled over book by pen
I'd forget and
I'd forgive and
I'd pretend!

Oh, what I say I mean- I'll write home...probably
It's time for me to leave but I cannot pick my feet up off the ground
There's a certain type of traction grounded in attraction and I'm not very proud

This time instead
This time I won't pretend
I can't live life this bleak
So, please wipe your shoes and take off your feet
Take off your feet, take off
Where we go instead must fill up my dumb head with thoughts that I could care less for.
Track Name: Sweet Tooth
I have a sweet tooth
I’ll bite off more than I can chew
In a text river that I wrote
I flooded you and soaked up your whole phone

There you lie, wide awake and cross-eyed
So there, you lied. You’re wide awake and cross-eyed.

Say that you don’t, say that you do
Make up your mind, makeup your moves
I don’t have a minute to waste on you
So say that you do

I’m afraid you take on quite a lot
Won’t you take me on like I’m A-Ha?
I know I stir the pot too much
My words clear steam, sizzle and pack a punch

There you lie, wide awake and cross-eyed
So there, you lied. You’re wide awake and cross-eyed.

You’re cross-eyed.
Track Name: She's Just the Icing on the Cake
I will not back down just yet
I've got a ticket to visit via turbo jet
I'm gonna mail myself to you
So we can talk face to face and see things though

Your words don't mean a thing if you send them through the air
Your words don't mean a thing if there's nothing but words there

That's why I sent myself away
Got a flight to catch on a one way plane
Never gonna settle for half
the world will watch and they all will laugh,

"She's just the icing on the cake
there's simply more than her at stake
It's tough to take in
But if you let go now your journey may begin"

Just the icing on the cake?


This is really quite a lot
I’ve got a green light go and a red one stop
I will never quite comprehend how all my going-in-circles leads to dead ends

My thoughts don’t mean a lot if I keep them kept inside
My thoughts don’t mean a lot if I keep on brushing them aside

I’m gonna charge and seize the day
Gonna make things right, gonna have my way
I’m never gonna settle for half
The world will watch and they all will laugh singing,

"She's just the icing on the cake
There's simply more than her at stake
It's tough to take in
But if you let go now your journey may begin"

Just the icing on the cake?

There's not a lot of people who agree with me

I don't really mind at all to be honest with integrity
Track Name: Thank You Friends
Lying in the tub with the faucet on
Face-down, bubbles stop where time is long
I know it gets better
Lying in the tub with the faucet on

I feel force rushing down but I don't look back
Wonder if I'll hear when my mind falls flat
I know it gets better
Force rushing down, I don't look back

Are you bored or on board?
Bored with boring?
Bored or on board?

Where do we go from here
I don't even know where to start from here
I don't even know where to go from here
I don't even know where to start...

Thank You Friends but I cannot lie
Life is apathetic and feeling dry
It doesn't get better
Lying in a tub with the faucet on

Where do we go from here
I don't even know where to start from here
I don't even know where to go from here
I don't even know where to start…
You know where to start again.
Track Name: Tiki Truck (Remix)
I've been pumpkin picking
Thin-slicing cut decisions
Leave the lies for the politicians and those with false intuition

Is it cloud I'm tasting?
Proud of copy-pasting?

Who's that reappearing?
Cast and called for the silent hearing.
I don't know why it isn't pleasant to see you now.
I really thought we did resonate, resident.

How is that cloud you're tasting?
So proud of copy-pasting.

I don't mind.

If a cigarette is your best friend I will take time to pay respects cause I do too have my regrets...but hey! At least we're not dead yet!

Here we go to the trucks with the tikis, they're trying to read me. (read me)
Here we go to the trucks with the tikis, they're trying to read me.

If your car breaks down on your way to your first day of work and you cant afford to get it fixed call up the Tiki Truck (Remix)

And if you’ve had some better days sittin, sippin lemonade you’ll find that you cannot replay you try again its far too late

Tiki Truck (remix), yeah
Track Name: Sensibility
I’m so scared for
My future and plans
Do hurt my hands
Rip out of walls
Can’t catch the Fall

I’m so stubborn
You can’t teach me how to get along
My arrogant mind deems you so wrong

You’ve got a big brain
You’ve gotta abstain

Why am I so hard to relate to?
Barred in the state of gutter-stuck ill, drain out my will
See you later, nice knowing you
Hope you liked me too
My hands cannot catch what you did not pass

You’ve got a big brain
You’ve gotta abstain
Track Name: Mad at the World
I’ll paint the world red for everyone is blue
Everybody’s bitter and there’s no one to turn to

The beaches are a mess because nobody cares enough
There are people upon people who decide not to pick up

I’m mad at the world sometimes
I don’t think that we’ll make it out alive
I’m mad at the world every day, week, month and year
I don’t think we’ll make it out of here

I always turn away because I don’t understand why everything I think up never turns out the way I planned

I’m mad at the world because I’m mad at myself
I fall into trends, can’t make amends- I need somebody’s help

Mad at the world sometimes
I don’t think that we’ll make it out alive
I’m mad at the world every day, week, month and year
I don’t think we’ll ever make it out of here

Every time I get to know you its your birthday
and I
don't know to get you
I'll get you a gift card or something

Mad at the world sometimes
I don’t think that we’ll make it out alive
Mad at the world sometimes
I don’t think that we’ll make it out alive
Track Name: Somewhere to Be
Sometimes it does take a couple weeks
Sometimes it gets you down upon your feet
Sometimes I can’t tell if I am wrong
But better not to know and get along
Am I wasting time?
Do you have somewhere to be?

Every time I try to walk away
Your accidental gravity delays me
And even if I wear you like a cape, once is not enough to make life great

Am I wasting time?
Do you have somewhere to be?
Track Name: Goggles
my glasses keep smudging
call me when you have a cure
my view's a little runny
is it time to fear the worst
do I think I’m some deep thinking guy or something
you say I am, I say I can’t

you’ll find
the sediment stays, the sediment hangs on
i’m fine to wait, for
you’ll find
I’m way behind of all of my kind
but I'm fine to sleep, for you

you’ll find
the sediment stays, the sediment hangs on
i’m fine to wait, for
you’ll find
it’s lost in the froth, way to go
I'm fine to squint, for you

it’s fast gone in a flash
no trace, of the real face
I’ve got bigger fish to fry
so I turn my back inside
yet still we bump elbows
dramatic I’m thinkin it through
Track Name: Transitland
Back again at my home away from home away from home
I'll back away into the fire
I'm Back again in the fields where I've always roamed
I'll rephrase myself if you call me a liar

Everyday I get further away
Scraping and scratching the side of my brain
Hoping I don't have to go to the hospital
Everyone has told me that is impossible

Every time I get knocked to the floor
I reach for the window and open the door
Letting in all of my worries and sins
I try to remember but only forget

When I succeed in my narcissistic and artistic habits
I fade away in my real life
when I see the lamp, I really oughta go get up and grab it
Fly with the moths, attracted to fake light

Everyday I get further away
Scraping and scratching the side of my brain
Hoping I don't have to go to the hospital
Everyone has told me that is impossible

Every time I get knocked to the floor
I reach for the window and open the door
Letting in all of my worries and sins
I try to remember but only forget

Every day I get, Every day I get… further away!

Way out on a rowboat
Rocking to the ebb and flo
Way out on the railroad
Chugging along the rodeo
Call into radio
Listen to fuzzy transmissions
Way out on the rowboat
Track Name: Burned Out
You say that you love me but you get burned out
How could those things come out of your mouth?

There are so many days in between
There are so many feelings lingering

Say that you mean it ‘cause I want you to
Mean it when you say it, “I too want you”

There are so many days in between
There are so many feelings lingering

Here we go again, down the road without an end
But we can try to make ends meet, if we keep on our feet
How could I be this stupid?
You fooled me once, never again
You've tried this a couple times, now get in line

You came in a vision when my thoughts were null
I couldn't keep the glass from being full

There are so many fears in my head
When there are so many other things to think of instead

Here we go again, down the road without an end
I got a lotta work to do, without you
How could I be this stupid
you fooled me twice, never again
I can't save myself, won't you lend me a helping hand

here we go again
down the road …
Track Name: Silver
Met you at a Meraki show in December '12
Needed friends so we talked a lot and we helped ourselves
I saw you at the park in April and you were doomed
Then you saw me and I turned away but I saw you

Where do we come from?
Not where we belong anymore...

I'm on a silver road under hills of gold
I;m on a silver road

Said with good intent, try to hold your breath- 3,2,1
Underwater we’re getting farther away from the sun
Wipe the dust away i get underpaid living on your shelf
I met you at a Meraki show in December ‘12

Where do we come from?
Not where we belong anymore...

I'm on a silver road under hills of gold
That Silver fades to black as I get old
Track Name: Philosopher's Toned
Way down high the cosmics collide
They're forming wide bona fide spectroscopy: Life isn't boring.

I've heard so much, I’ve heard so much
I took it you've heard so much, I heard it easily
I have seen you try to wake and I have seen the Drake Equation

Way up low the winds do blow
They're forming wide windows/spectroscopy: Life isn't boring.

I've heard so much, I’ve heard so much
I took it you've heard so much, I heard it easily
I have seen you try to wake and I have seen the Drake Equation

Me. Poor me. Yeah, me.

Yesterday, homestead. Yesterday, homestead.
Yesterday, homestead. Yesterday, homestead.

I've heard so much. I've heard far too much.
I've heard so much and I heard it easily
Track Name: Two Bottles
Two bottles away from a deeper sudden drop
Full throttle, away, we are going to blast off
1 2 3 4 ( 1 2 3 4)
I declare a war

I never thought that it would amount to this
I acted foolish but oh, how could I resist?
These temptations made their way into my brain
1 2 3 4
How- how could I complain?

Ooh
I don't want anyone else
Ooh
I don't want anyone else

Not that I mind or that it matters to me
Not that I mind or that it matters to me
Not that I mind or that it matters to me
Not that I mind or that it matters to me

I can speak without meaning a word at all
It's a talent and it gives me my withdrawals
You didn't notice you could never call my bluff
1 2 3 4
I stop acting tough

Ooh
I don't want anyone else
Ooh
I don't want anyone else

Not that I mind or that it matters to me
Not that I mind or that it matters to me
Not that I mind or that it matters to me
Not that I mind or that it matters to me

Ooh
I don't want anyone else
No no no!

You don't want them! You don't want them!
They don't want you....
