Track Name: Fall Apart
Well it's probably all in my head
But everyone who knows me wishes I'd stayed in bed today
I'll get up and see
If it's themselves they're trying to save
Or me
(i’m just like, jeez uh)

Yeah and the only girl I've loved
Always keeps one eyeball up above
So she can look down at me
While the other refuses to see me
At all

there you have it
I get down I get manic
man, the only thing out there for me is
Heart break and brain damage
Dammit I can't understand at all

And there's this one thing in my life
Hanging over my head like a pair of loaded guns
And they are both pointed at me
Will it be the one I can
or the one I can't see

There you have it
I get down I get manic
The only thing out there for me’s
Heartbreak and brain damage
Damnit I can't understand
That all those times you told me that
all everything was going to be ok
and you know it's a lie but you said it anyways
Anyway way down here I just noticed:

From my hands to my arms
Everything I touch sets off an alarm
From my arms into my heart
Everything I touch just falls apart
From my heart into my lungs
All I can hope is only nothing goes wrong
From my lungs into my blood
Please god don't let another ex show up :(
Track Name: Messenger
ou are like a broken bicycle with handlebars that just come off;
cause every time that I'm riding I crash
And if you go away then I miss you more
Than my jumpshot
And if you go away I’ll ask you to come back
But I don't wanna be made to feel like I'm begging ya,
Cause it ain't me it's my heart
And I'm just the messenger

Why do you always put me down
Then big me up the second that I turn around
Always act like you're so smart
Yeah, you almost know me better
Than the digits on my credit card
If the heart wants what it wants
then I'm never gonna getchya
But at least it's not my fault;
cuz I'm just the messenger

Weren't you the one who always said that you were gonna keep it real
Nah, I ain't trying to say that you lied
But you run around running your mouth like we were no big deal
Telling people we ain't even fuck since July
Now I got your friends telling me you're telling them I'm begging ya
but it ain’t me it’s my heart
and i’m just the messenger

Why do you always put me down
Then big me up the second that I turn around
Making me feel always sad
You got my number crumpled up in the bottom of your designer bag
If the heart wants what it wants
then I'm never gonna getchya
But at least it's not my fault;
cuz I'm just the messenger

You don't think the story's ending
Nah you're just pretending
When this I know
One thing's fo sho
I don't think about you any mo
You wanna say my name around town
You're a little runaround

Why do you always put me down
Then big me up the second that I turn around
Always act like you're so smart
Yeah, you almost know me better
Than the digits on my credit card
If the heart wants what it wants
Never gonna getchya
But I know it's not my fault
Because I'm just the messenger
Track Name: Matthew Damon
She says she’s never gonna like me
even if i become famous
she knows there’s much more money
in making sense than making it

oh oh oh oh

All the money in the world
all the diamonds and the pearls
couldn’t get me any closer to that girl

so whenever i say hey
she looks down and walks away
there’s another boy from down the street
who’s stacking cheese

She says she’s never gonna like me
even if i become famous
she knows there’s much more money
in making sense than making it

oh oh oh oh

She claims cash is not the king
she requires a love to bring
just as long as he can buy a diamond ring
plus some other basic needs
like a house and mercedes
just some little things to get her through
not loving you

and happy is all that she wants to be
but i can’t afford for that to come from me
so whenever she’s all down
all you gotta do is pick her up
by the bank account

She says she’s never gonna like me
even if i become famous
she knows there’s much more money
in making sense than making it
She says she’s never gonna like me
and i’ll never become famous
she’s into Jimmy Franco
thinks I look like Matthew Damon

Oh oh oh oh
Alright
Track Name: Courier Career
There is only one thing I know is true
I put it in this song for you
I'm doing music in and doing what I like
which is going outside every day on my bike

I'm sorry music but you're getting me tired
And I'd rather go on a nice long rired
I never had a hit in all these years
So right now I'm embarking on my courier career

There is only one thing I know is true
I put it in this song for you
I'm doing music in and doing what I like
which is going outside every day on my bike

I just found some jumps in the woods
And no, I didn't do them,
But I probably could
A better mountain bike is all I'm going need
So it's time to save my money up from selling weed

There is only one thing I know is true
I put it in this song for you
I'm doing music in and doing what I like
which is i’m definitely never going to fall off my bike

(Crash noise)

I guess I must've hit my head
Because I just now woke up in a hospital bed
and The doctor sayin dave you need lots of rest
But all I can think about is what bike to buy next

There is only one thing I know is true
Fuck this song fuck me fuck you
I'm doing music in and doing what I like
I'm still giving up but this time it's on a bike
Track Name: Summer of Dean, 2014
Dean McKitchen is a real dean Juan
he smiles at girls with his apron on
he gets all the fishes while he does the dishes

It’s gonna be such a good good summer
it’s gonna be all summer long
it’s gonna be such a good good summer
deans got his shirt off put your shirt on

He’s got this shirt and it’s the worst i’ve ever seen on planet earth
cause it says
Keep Calm
and let
Dean
Handle It

It’s gonna be such a good good summer
it’s gonna be all summer long
it’s gonna be such a great great summer
deans coming over with his nerf guns

Dean can’t you see that to these girls
you are something of a world
they become obsessed with
but then all they’re left with
is the bitter taste of tears
that replace the thoughts of years
they can wonder
but they’ll never understand

That all this is just because
of some girl you used to love
how she hurt you and made you
a sad sack
well i hate to say its true
but somebody had to tell you
man she’s gone
and she’s never
coming
back
Track Name: Apologize
I was wrong
i’ll admit complete
it’s been a long while
since you came to see me
your barricaded yourself in the living room
pretending hard you don’t want me to speak to you

so upset bout something that i done
maybe or maybe not dumb

I know that i was wrong
but i won’t apologize
it’s meaningless this many times

If you were here i would get down on both my knees
Attempt the same song and dance slightly differently
but i’m scared you may think i’m just playing you
when every word would register as deja vu

So upset despite what i have tried
as helpless as i’m selfish and

I know that i was wrong
but i won’t apologize
it’s meaningless this many times
I know that i was wrong
but i won’t apologize
it’s meaningless this many times
so meaningless this many times
i fucked this up too many times
Track Name: Evidence
She says
i’m kinda feelin useless
and i don’t wanna do this
anymore
so i’m like
yeah well what about what i like
she said that it’s ok
as long as it involves me

Firstly and Foremostly
turning whiter than a ghost he
was shaken by the text he read
*and then the fuckin dude said*

I don’t wanna make you feel
you’re living in a movie but
somebody is watching every time you make a move
and it doesn’t take much common sense
for it to become evident
that evidence is meaningless with nothing to prove

In deep
i can sense her feeling tired of me
like she needs some variety
i know i know
so i’m like hey well what about what i like
and shes sayin that it’s ok
as long as it don’t involve me

Clearly and concisely
i predict the words precisely
she remembered like a camera shot it
again like we forgot it

I don’t wanna make you feel
you’re living in a movie but
somebody is watching every time you make a move
and it doesn’t take much common sense
for it to become evident
that evidence is meaningless with nothing to prove

Oh oh oh oh oh ohhhhh oh oh

I don’t wanna make you feel
you’re living in a movie but
somebody is watching every time you make a move
and it doesn’t take much common sense
for it to become evident
that evidence is meaningless with nothing to prove

Sorry that i dragged you into this
i make mistakes when i’m feeling over anxious
Track Name: Steaks
They crowned the new king
Before you knew just what he did
Steaks for everyone
Congratulations
They nearly built the whole new works before the wrench slipped in

When they took you out of training
The new king’s reign was finally waning
A little too soon to be of use to you
But going insane is the magic of waiting

Everyone feels like they could die
and A few of them definitely will
A fresh painting on every wall
In exchange for a couple good pills yeah

In this life only one things for sure
You can't know how your going unless you're taking control
I won't
no i won’t

All these girls that get stuck in my head
Why can't a single one ever stick in my bed
oh They won't
Till I forget about you x3

If you want to get something for me
You could get away and let me be
Let me be blue
if you forget about me
til I forget about you

So you got your new wife
Too young for it to last x3
And she fucked someone else
Congratulations!
In the breaks in speech he just slipped in
Too late to loud
Too late to be proud
Fuck yeah steaks
Will they get you?
They will, they will they will they will they will they will they will they will they will they will they will they will they will x2
Track Name: The KGB
The Russian girls from The KGB
sent here on a mission to destroy
me
and somehow steal my secret plans
then crawl out of the window when i am asleep

some they use guns
some use knives
but these girls
only need they’re eyes
for to get what they want
from me every time

So it’s back to the lab to make a new plan in hopes that they’ll come back to rob me again
