Track Name: Nineteen Fifty Something
Hey Hey
Oh Way Oh

I gotta say baby
it's driving me crazy
You left me out here in the rain
the liquor store lady
is looking quite wavy
the homeless man's begging for change
I threw him a buck
and said "wish me some luck
'cause my lady she's whylin' at home"
He said "Boy don't you know,
it's not home you should go,
you're better off all on your own."
I told him "I'm faded."
And patiently waited
outside of the store for my cab
A smoke and a swig
from my bottle of gin
and the man disappeared just like that.
My cab never came
so I stood in the rain,
smoking my cigarette down.
It wouldn't stop pouring,
I said fuck the store and
I walked my drunk ass into town.

*And I
Can't remember
The last thing I said
(bom bom bom bom)
was it I love you?
Or I wish you were-
I Can't remember
The last thing I said
(bom bom bom bom)
Was it I love you?
Or I wish you were dead?

Hey Hey
Oh Way Oh

The town was deserted
but it was still early
I felt like I shouldn't be here
my bottle was done
but the night was still young
I need me a whiskey and beer
The pub was still open
I walked through the door
and to my surprise inside was packed
They said "Come and join us,
and order your poison!
just kick up your feet and relax!"
After some time
the sun started to shine
And I hailed a cab out of town
Driving down Main Street
I thought of my baby
And wondered if she had calmed down
I knocked on the front door
but nobody answered
so i let my self in the side
Much to my horror
on the kitchen floor oh
My baby she'd OD'd and died...

*And I
Can't remember
The last thing I said
(bom bom bom bom)
was it I love you?
Or I wish you were-
I Can't remember
The last thing I said
Track Name: Streetcar
I think it was June 2012, and the last thing that I asked you was
Which season of friends is your favourite one?
You said 8, and I said same, but you had too much on your plate
and to be fair, you thought that he was gunna be the one

Fast forward a bit it was cold in the city
and I saw you walking down the street
you stopped to chat for a minute or two
I asked how you'd been, you said great
you asked about me and I said same
but we both knew, neither one of us was telling the truth

*It was the last day of our class together
but there's no way that I'm getting off this street car 'cause
this might be the last chance I get to sit with you and chat
so I'll ride the whole way home with you this one last time

I'm still not sure what I missed, I like that tattoo on your wrist
should I have called you right away?
there was that time you texted me that summer night in 2014
and told me that you didn't have anywhere to stay

you showed up with tears in your eyes
but assured me you were fine
I poured you a drink and you laughed out loud
you told me you felt crazy
I told you don't be crazy baby
you laughed again, grabbed my hand and said
I'm all yours now

*It was the last day of our class together
but there's no way that I'm getting off this street car 'cause
this might be the last chance I get to sit with you and chat
so I'll ride the whole way home with you this one last time

I gotta focus, 'cause I don't know miss
and I gotta say I'm feeling pretty hopeless
but I'll make sure that you make it home
even if it means I can't hang up this phone
honestly its me who's heart was broke
so baby please won't you just let me know
is your boyfriend gone or did you take him back
are you wasting my time on these streetcar tracks
yea up around the bend we go
and I'm staring at you staring out the window
I wanna read you mind I wanna know your thoughts
I need to know baby if you're feelin me or not
I need to know baby if its fucking real or not
come home with me baby you can show me what you got
and when Im on the streetcar and pass your stop
I can't help but think of you

*It was the last day of our class together
but there's no way that I'm getting off this street car 'cause
this might be the last chance I get to sit with you and chat
so I'll ride the whole way home with you this one last time
Track Name: Emotional Ramblings Ignite Crippling Anxieties
*I found a way to keep me from dying
I'm not afraid to make myself whole again
I found a way to keep you from crying
I can explain how we can be us again

I remember you
so badly you wanted to be with me
And I told you
that we should just keep things light
And now look at you
You don't even want to be seen with me
All we do
when we're together is fuck or fight
I wish I
Could go back in time and just tell you no
And even though you'd hate me
You would see one day that I was right
I tried to warn you
But you did what you wanted anyway
You even fucking put me down
For what goes on up in my mind

*I found a way to keep me from dying
I'm not afraid to make myself whole again
I found a way to keep you from crying
I can explain how we can be us again

You said it didn't matter
When I told you I had issues
You sat there and you told me that
You'd help me get through them all
And then when I needed you
You just had to be there to hold me
Instead you ignored me
And that's when I began to fall
I fell into a dark place
I looked at you begging to help me
I still stare at my phone sometimes
And wonder if you're gunna call
I called it from the get-go, oh
This shit with me always ends up the same
But now Ive learned my lesson and
Put back up all of my walls

*I found a way to keep me from dying
I'm not afraid to make myself whole again
I found a way to keep you from crying
I can explain how we can be us again

My baby she called me and told me that she had to let me go
I told her to let me stay I can fix all of this don't you know
Please listen baby I know it sounds crazy but I can make all of this work
But my baby she called me and told me she still had to let me go
My baby she called me and told me that she had to let me go

*I found a way to keep me from dying
I'm not afraid to make myself whole again
I found a way to keep you from crying
I can explain how we can be us again
Track Name: Lost Not Found
She sits at home in her quiet little town
and she wonders if she'll ever make it out alive
I don't know, I don't know girl
I really hope you see the whole world
So she walks through the streets of her town to the bus stop
who knows where she's going this time
she don't know, she don't know but
she just knows she's got to go

so she runs away from her home
I guess she really wants to see this world alone
and I wonder if she'll ever figure it out
but as the bus pulls away
I can see her fill with doubt
and catch a tear falling from her eye

She walks alone in the streets of the city
and she wonders how she ever made it here alive
but she's alone, she's alone still
tryna fix the pain with
clubbing, drinking, drugging, taking pills
but she must know by now
that this pain in her heart
is one pain that will never subside
so she goes and makes a phone call
and she gets what she needs tonight

But she's not okay
she's had enough
we all do stupid shit when we're in love
so she goes and makes that phone call home
but when no body picks up
she decides to go get stoned
I catch a tear falling from her eye
Track Name: Short And Sweet
Another one disappears
Once again I meet my fears
I throw another down and I’m by myself
You think that I am hurt inside
You think that I would fight and cry
You’re wrong but that’s ok,
so does everyone else
I’m not lying when I say
that with you I'd be ok
it’s the loneliness that crushes me down
look at what I’ve sacrificed
Paid in full the highest price
You’re the only one I want around
and sure sometimes I get what I want
but the question is if it matters or not
all this shit I got, doesn’t fill the spot of you
my shitty habits fuck up my life
these voices keep me up at night
my dreams are when I’m happiest, it’s sad but true
cause in my dreams I have my health
you’re by my side, my family’s well
so I keep my eyes closed shut, as long as I can
cause even just the thought of you
is better than what I wake up to
but that’s ok I don’t expect you to understand

I don’t expect you to understand

but will the pain and anger stop?
I’ve never did believe in god
and I don’t know if I ever can
One day I might change my mind
one day when the sun starts to shine
one day ill know myself like the back of my hand
stay in my room, trapped in my thoughts
singing stories, playing plots
heavy clouds surround my songs at night
I’d trade my talents to have your time
money doesnt fuel my rhyme
people make love, but people also fight
stories written in the sand
your presence slipping from my hands
I lost you once, I just can’t lose you again
I think thats why it hurts me so
Not because you had to go
But cause I was your and you were my best friend
It’s crazy 7 years have passed
I’m sorry that I was such an ass
I’m sorry for all those things I wrote online
I’m really sorry about that night
that I threatened my self with that knife
I’m sorry that I lied and told you, I’d be fine
I really wish that I could take back
The years I treated you like trash
I’m sorry I dragged it on for so damn long
I should have let you live your life
I should have gone away that night
I’m sorry that I wrote all of those songs
You’re a good person, I am not
I’m more fucked up than I thought
I fucking hate my self for hating you
But I guess that I should wrap this up
A Nitrous Gas Intake Erupts
I’m sorry for the shit I put you through.
Track Name: Concrete Feet
It's fucking cold in this place
And I don't think I'm staying the night
She likes to scream in my face
And remind me nothings alright
I got this voice in my head and it won't go away
I just want to get some sleep
But I stay through the night with the smoke in my chest
'Cause she's all I got left

*And now I'm sinking down down
Into the deep blue sea
With a couple hundred pounds
Of concrete on my feet, and I,
I don't think that I mind
And baby if you see me
On the side of the high way
Wont you please pullover
And ask me if I need a ride
'Cause it might just save my life

I'm feeling anxious in this hotel room
I really hope my baby gets here soon
My body aches, around the room I'm pacing
Look in the mirror, but I can't see my face and,
There's no knock at the door
She just walks right in

*And now I'm sinking down down
Into the deep blue sea
With a couple hundred pounds
Of concrete on my feet, and I,
I don't think that I mind
And baby if you see me
On the side of the high way
Wont you please pullover
And ask me if I need a ride
'Cause it might just save my life
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Grow Up (Tom Waits Cover)
When I'm lyin' in my bed at night
I don't wanna grow up
Nothin' ever seems to turn out right
I don't wanna grow up


How do you move in a world of fog
That's always changing things
Makes me wish that I could be a dog


When I see the price that you pay
I don't wanna grow up
I don't ever wanna be that way
I don't wanna grow up

Seems like folks turn into things
That they'd never want
The only thing to live for
Is today


I'm gonna put a hole in my TV set
I don't wanna grow up
Open up the medicine chest
And I don't wanna grow up


I don't wnna have to shout it out
I don't want my hair to fall out
I don't wanna be filled with doubt
I don't wanna be a good boy scout
I don't wanna have to learn to count
I don't wanna have the biggest amount
I don't wanna grow up

Well when I see my parents fight
I don't wanna grow up
They all go out and drinking all night
And I don't wanna grow up


I'd rather stay here in my room
Nothin' out there but sad and gloom
I don't wanna live in a big old Tomb
On Grand Street

When I see the 5 o'clock news
I don't wanna grow up
Comb their hair and shine their shoes
I don't wanna grow up


Stay around in my old hometown
I don't wanna put no money down
I don't wanna get me a big old loan
Work them fingers to the bone
I don't wanna float a broom
Fall in and get married then boom
How the hell did I get here so soon
I don't wanna grow up
Track Name: Cali-foreigner
La Da, Lada Dada Da (x4)

What did I have to do
Why did I lose you
What did I have to say
To make it all okay
She's got the voice and the eyes
and the brains and the body
I wonder why she's looking at me oddly
Oh maybe she saw me once on TV
But I aint 'bout to wait around and see

Because I'm in California
And I love it here
Every time of year
These summer nights
And these city lights
Oh oh
Drinking on the beach
It's not where I'm from
But it's home to me
And I'll never leave

La Da, Lada Dada Da (x4)

Wait in lines all day
It's snowing in LA
Out here in the streets
Us between the sheets

From the valley to the hills
To the beach to the highway
This kush and this drink
Got me faded feeling sideways
Now everyone's calling me
From back home
But where the fuck were they
When I was on my own?

Because I'm in California
And I love it here
Any time of year
These summer nights
And these city lights
Oh oh
Drinking on the beach
It's not where I'm from
But it's home to me
And I'll never leave
Cause I love it here
Any time of year
These summer nights
And these city lights
Oh oh
Drinking on the beach
It's not where I'm from
But it's home to me
And I'll never leave
