Track Name: Totino's Party Pizza (For One)
hustle back to your favorite coast
after weeks of shaking strangers’ hands
wishin you were on your couch
keepin up with netflix’s demands

now you got it all figured out
got two months’ rent and internet
nevermind your empty fridge or
that you’re good and celibate

who ya gonna share your cool-ass life with
you lonely sack of shit?
you sure you’re better off alone

friends are textin, makin plans
for midnight brunch at ur favorite bar
sleep until 2:30, wake the
neighbors up w ur guitar

who ya gonna share your cool-ass life with
you lonely sack of shit?
you sure you’re better off alone
:
[u got] so much goin for you
self-pity don’t look good on
no one - least of all not you

[but] let’s be realistic
pour another ketel one
and drink til you forget
[how] good you are at re-living your regrets

who ya gonna share your cool-ass life with
you lonely sack of shit?
you sure you’re better off alone

[u got] so much goin for you
self-pity don’t look good on
no one / least of all not you

[but] let’s be realistic
pour another ketel one
and drink til you forget

[how] good you are at re-living your regrets
Track Name: Pulling Teeth
yeah you sure get
words outta me
pullin teeth where
no teeth should be

barometric
pressure’s down
i can feel the impending storm
all over this town
and it’s worse than i remember
irredeemably alone in mid-december


i’ll admit that
i’m embarassed
that it took so long
for me to up and confess

but in the night sky
you shine like venus
i’m just an asteroid
2 AU between us
but that doesn’t seem so far
i’m dreamin of the sunset and cable cars

if you don't make me any promises
we’ll be just fine

and on new years
the sky’s on fire
im needing you
with a rapt desire
who knows if it will last
cuz shallow hearts get filled so fast
Track Name: Tag Along
never thought i’d be the kinda person who gets upset
when their phone dies on the bus ride home

but i can’t remember a time when i talked to anyone else
with the softness and the frequency that i do with you

sometimes i feel like an old dog
that you’re happy to see but worried to love too much
cuz you know it’s just a matter of time

so before you go
won’t you hold me
and swear it won’t be for long
if this is real
won’t you show me
just say the word
and i’ll be happy to tag along

i can only say how much i’m missing you a few times a day
before i start to sound like a cable news network hungry for a good story

and my friends get annoyed with how i’m always somewhere else
cuz my mind’s a few hundred miles down the western coast

sometimes i feel like i’m about to explode
from the anticipation of your incoming call
from any notification at all

and i can’t take it much longer
i can’t take it much longer
it’s a good thing
that we’re so close when we’re apart

so before you go
won’t you hold me
and promise it won’t be long
if this is real
won’t you show me
just say the word
and i’ll be happy to tag along
Track Name: Stars
We’re not exactly friends right now
and we’re far from lovers
i still feel close to you somehow
but there are masks between us
our faces always covered

look to the stars and see me always
look to the moon and i’ll see you too
beyond the sky, we’ll be together
long ago and someday soon

i’m the wind that paints the darkness
you are friendship’s great protector
& tho you’re strong enough without me
i wanna be w you right now
not just when we’re older

*chorus*

there’s a sadness in our lives
that keeps us going
it’ll be there til the end
we all have stars in our hearts
burning brightly
and they’ll burn forever
with no worlds left to defend

*chorus x2*
Track Name: We All Out Here~
its been a month of sleeping on some rando's floor
cuz city rent, who can afford it anymore
we're losing dead-end jobs
to take time off to tour
hey man its worth it

if we were honest from the start
we wouldn’t end up breaking hearts

we all out here
in this mess together
and we’re all gonna die
so huddle closer
with friends and family
let’s scream our last goodbye

we’re all in pain in ways we can’t articulate
poundin gin and cheerwine at a less than healthy rate
the abyss stares back at us
and with every look
we wind up blushing

if we were honest from the start
we wouldn’t end up breaking hearts

(chorus)

every day is sisyphean
we're all just rolling shit uphill
but with the nights that we got left
let's make something beautiful
(beautiful)

(chorus X 2)
Track Name: Dagger
learned the shape of your hands on a near-empty train
with your head on my shoulder staring out at the rain
and you pulled me apart and you put me together
for a hot fuckin minute things could not have been better

a part of me knew that this was all fleeting
the life we had dreamed of would die upon meeting

spent the weekend in bed in a mess of your hair
and wind battered the windows to score the affair
i still remember your taste and the curve of your back
how with just one look you could give me panic attacks

in that queen anne hotel room of withering flowers
i let down my guard and the world, it was ours


now your ghost haunts the sidewalks from Mercer to Jackson
i’m weak and pathetic, having such a reaction
to the places we spent such a short chunk of time
it means nothing to you, no the burden’s all mine

you can’t take all the credit i’ve been rekt from the start
you just buried a dagger of hope in my heart
Track Name: Golden Gardens (Only Chain Smoke at the Beach in January)
it’s been weeks since our last easy conversation
the proper words in short supply
and each “how you been” comes with too much hesitation
since our whole deal has gone awry

i walked down 200 steps on my way to golden gardens
felt the burning in my thighs
and with each cigarette my unease became a burden
so i spit it out into the tide

stay in my heart for just a little longer
cuz i dont wanna let you go
but it’s all up in flames and i’ve nothing left to offer
gonna sit and watch the fire grow




sometimes dreams have to die to let new ones live
sometimes dreams have to die to let new ones live
sometimes dreams have to die to let new ones live
don’t spend too much time lamenting them
Track Name: ((Alright))
i can hide from the sun if i close my eyes
orchestrate the finer points of my own demise
I'm wakin up from dreams I left behind
there are nights when you're still on my mind
but it’s alright

try and be friendly try and be nice
say yes to everything and don’t think twice
til my expectations are all rewired
and i let go of all i once desired
til it’s alright

keep my shit together for 2 hours at a time
when you’re worthless, self-harm is a victimless crime
the moon hangs lonesome in the sky tonight
im fadin out tryin to burn so bright
but it’s alright

it’s 5am and there’s cops at the door
cuz i made some promises i’ve made before
someone thought i’d finally take the dive
but my phone just died - i’m still alive
im still alright
Track Name: December
I’m still internalizing reasons
we couldn’t make it through the season
got too many songs about you
what would this year have been without you

and all apologies
are comin straight from me

right back where we started
kinda broken hearted

thinkin’ back to last december
to things i’d rather not remember
but when i find a painful feeling
leaning in seems so appealing

you’re the one mistake
i thought i’d never make again

right back where we started
kinda broken hearted

right back where we started
kinda broken hearted
one of us deserving
for bein undiscerning
Track Name: Totino's Credits Roll (Reprise)
shuffle home with your tail between
your tired legs in the pouring rain
resignation gets easier
when everything’s goin down the drain

find it hard to figure out
where to take your life from here
when every moment makes
you want to fucking disappear

how you gonna put your life back together
you lonely sack of shit
now that you're truly all alone

you got so much goin for you
self pity don't look good on no one
least of all not you
but let's be realistic
pour another 40 down your throat til u forget

how good u are at reliving your regrets
