Track Name: Qualities
I know I have a lot of qualities
My ma' she says i'm special
I don't need all of these
Life love, love life
They don't mean a thing
I say I play the field but i'm still waiting hopelessly

And all that I want to say to you
All that I hope in which is true
All that I want to say to you is I hope that you're not like me too

I know I walk through people like a door
Though I was seventeen, I'm older, I know more
My pa', he don't mind not a bit
Says he plays the field, but he thinks i'm always lit

And all that I want to say to you
All that I hope in which is true
All that I want to say to you is I hope that you're not like me too
Track Name: Only So Young
Things were said but taken back but it don't matter anyways
Lost in sound makes muted wounds but I can choose when to fade away
It's back and forth like a bipolar force, these blue spots, they come and go
But I can't leave I think she needs me, plus i'm not old enough to be on my own

But why won't someone save me, my face is turning black and blue
Lost without my savings maybe it's the best that I can do (x2)

Track Name: Some Other Day
Are you gonna go or are you gonna stay?
Please make up your mind, oh it's gettin' kind of late
And if you're wondering if I have something to say
Well honestly, i'd like to do this some other day

But I find it so hard to be loving when there's just nothing
I want to be close to you but i'm a bad actor too
I lost it all within a week there's nothing here no old stories
I want to be with someone who will show me what I never knew

I know that you have a lot on your plate
so please don't be like me and cancel all our dates
I see you once a month and you sure know how to play
Maybe that is why I haven't thought to run away

But I find it so hard to be loving when there's just nothing
I want to be close to you but i'm a bad actor too
I lost it all within a week there's nothing here no old stories
I want to be with someone who will show me what I never knew
Track Name: I Need Time Ft. Gerry Leonard
How can we all live when the air is thinning out
Words, they spread like wildfire I think without a doubt
So now the city's burning, marked with but one name
You've heard it many times before, they say it every day
Back to the beginning where she had her family
Her love stretched to the ocean as strange as that may be

And I need time to love again, that's what she said (x2)

She was content, as happy as could be
But then she got a letter and her man, he had to leave
Filled with grief and sorrow, completely lost her mind
They had resented her, she reeked of smoke and wine
She changed almost completely sold her soul to lies
Says love comes in a single form and claims that hers had died

She's right, she died in her heart but not her mind (x2)

How can she live when her air is thinning out
Hate, it spreads like wildfire, she knows without a doubt
So now her city's burning, marked with but one name
She's heard it many times before she loved him every day

And I need time to love again, that's what she said (x2)
Track Name: Ignorable Souls
When the gears start turning and the left starts learning
It sneak out the right
And I lose everything that comes to mind
There's a mawkish taste to your osculate, it's sick and it's cold
And now all I am is an ignorable soul

Yes, I know i'm choosy but at least i'm not a floozy, that's for sure
I know it seems i'm hazy but that's just me being lazy, i'm sorry dear (x2)

When the gears start turning and the left starts learning
It sneak out the right
And I lose everything that comes to mind
There's a mawkish taste to your osculate, it's sick and it's cold
And now all I am is an ignorable soul

Yes, I know i'm choosy but at least i'm not a floozy, that's for sure
I know it seems i'm hazy but that's just me being lazy, i'm sorry dear (x2)

When the gears start turning and the left starts learning
It sneak out the right
And I lose everything that comes to mind
There's a mawkish taste to your osculate, it's sick and it's cold
And now all I am is an ignorable soul

Yes, I know i'm choosy but at least i'm not a floozy, that's for sure
I know it seems i'm hazy but that's just me being lazy, i'm sorry dear (x2)
Track Name: Commercial Art
I found my moms old notes with airy fairy thoughts
Although they're five years old, that's what she was taught
She mentioned her past lives, she wrote what she had seen
And when I asked her why this is what she tells me

You don't know who, you don't know who
You don't know who you are til' you fall apart
With blueprints from your dominees commercial art
Lock all your love, play lord and lay down the law
But giving up control may be all you know

Maybe in the end it's all that you know (x4)

When the mind becomes the self labeled on her bookshelf
Her new polished off rocks, she swears she hears them talk
They mention her past lives maybe the saddest thing
And when I asked her why, this is what she tells me

You don't know who, you dont know who
You don't know who you are til' you fall apart
With blueprints from your dominees commercial art
Lock all your love, play lord and lay down the law
But giving up control may be all you know

You don't know who you are til' you fall apart (x6)
I'm giving up control (x4)

Maybe in the end it's all that you know (x4)
Track Name: Suitable Fellow
What's more embarrassing to say than your girlfriends a loser
Oh this is true sir, and that is who I am
What's more embarrassing to say than your girlfriends an addict
She's a fanatic and that is who she is painted down in his life where she's still

And still I wonder why you gave your heart to her
she doesn't even try but she's not like me for sure
I'll give you all I got, my mind and my cello
Just for what it's like for a suitable fellow (x3)

What's more embarrassing to say than your girlfriends a boozer
Oh this is true sir and that is who she is
What's more embarrassing to say than your girlfriends a hoser
Oh but you chose her and that is who I am but I don't give a damn, so please don't call me

And still I wonder why you gave your heart to her
she doesn't even try but she's not like me for sure
I'll give you all I got, my mind and my cello
Just for what it's like for a suitable fellow (x3)
Track Name: Turbulence
So I searched into my heart, I picked it out tore it apart for you
Is that what you wanted me to do
I check again and again disappointing to see nothing when I thought
I thought we hit it off
When I thought, I thought we hit it off

But Whats in your fire too if my thoughts just consist of you
What's in your fire too if your thoughts just consist of me

So I searched into my heart, I picked it out tore it apart for you
Is that what you wanted me to do
I check again and again disappointing to see nothing when I thought
I thought we hit it off
When I thought, I thought we hit it off

But Whats in your fire too if my thoughts just consist of you
What's in your fire too if your thoughts just consist of me

But don't get me wrong, I think about a lot
I have places I left inside
Don't get me wrong, I lose a lot of thought
I have places i left behind (x2)

There's tremendous turbulence on the surface
so call me from your hydrophone
In musky waters, he's your father
Do the creatures under water have bones (x2)


So I searched into my heart, I picked it out tore it apart for you
Is that what you wanted me to do
I check again and again disappointing to see nothing when I thought
I thought we hit it off
When I thought, I thought we hit it off
Track Name: Maybe The Saddest Thing
Meryl Streep movies, porcelain roosters daisies
cooking dinner logically in favor of a daily
bike ride to my buddy jon's finding grids and scatter plots
Every road I choose to walk are filled with carnival roadblocks

I was in the movies, im the one that always cries
It's possibly the saddest thing, i'm claimed from strange bloodlines
it's right beneath my tongue now, it's not a normal thing
But on any given day i'm the one that goes hungry

Bye Bye Bennie, lost a penny when you died
And I feel like I lost my teeth
And yes sometimes it gets a little hard to eat
But my face and my hands are only

Meryl Streep movies, porcelain roosters daisies
cooking dinner logically in favor of a daily
bike ride to my buddy jon's finding grids and scatter plots
Every road I choose to walk are filled with carnival roadblocks

I was in the movies, im the one that always cries
It's possibly the saddest thing, i'm claimed from strange bloodlines
it's right beneath my tongue now, it's not a normal thing
But on any given day i'm the one that goes hungry

And it may be the saddest thing you've heard
I've heard sadder
It make be the weirdest thing you've seen
I've seen stranger (x2)

Bye Bye Bennie, lost a penny when you died
And I feel like I lost my week
But it doesn't really make a difference to me
But my face and my hands are only

Meryl Streep movies, porcelain roosters daisies
cooking dinner logically in favor of a daily
bike ride to my buddy jon's finding grids and scatter plots
Every road I choose to walk are filled with carnival roadblocks
Track Name: Je Ne Sais Pas
A little odd a little strange i’m just mentally deranged
a little strange somewhat unique i stand on my hands not my feet
somewhat confused a little sad but that’s okay if you’re me
they’ll lock you in they’ll say its law and all you have to say is

Je ne sais pas

always lost and slightly mad but you did nothing to me
my farthest nerve that’s from my hand i feel when i walk with my feet
somewhat confused a little sad but that’s okay if you’re me
they’ll lock you in they’ll say its law and all you have to say is

Je ne sais pas(x4)

Oui monsieur my brain is falling apart
like a flightless bird now it just got hit by a dart

always lost and slightly mad but you did nothing to me
my farthest nerve that’s from my hand i feel when i walk with my feet
somewhat confused a little sad but that’s okay if you’re me
they’ll lock you in they’ll say its law and all you have to say is

Je ne sais pas (x5)
(I stand alone, further from home (x4))
Track Name: Morals of Time Travel
I wanna write a song I feel good about in the long run
I wanna write a song but I don't know what to do when its done
I wanna see that guy that I saw a couple weeks ago
I wanna see if he will write with me because people talk and people say

People talk and people say that everything will go one way (x2)

I wanna feel the way that I felt when you cradled me
I wanna feel the warmth and the lack of company
I wanna see that guy that I saw a couple weeks ago
I wanna see if he will write with me because people talk and people say

People talk and people say that everything will go one way (x2)

I cut my finger on a little string, I bled to death and rolled out of bed
I found my old poetry wrapped in my old dirty sheets (x2)
