Track Name: Apples and Fog Machines
You tend to wear the same thing for as many days as you'd think possible
And I'll never see, that these things tend to only last a set number of days

Before, I'm tired--and my lungs ache
I don't see why I'm still waiting

I'll let you hold, me here until you decide it's time for me to
And I can't keep up, putting you to bed underneath piles of my clothes

Because, I'm tired--and my lungs ache
I don't see why I'm still waiting

I don't see what would make it worth your while to be so tired

So tired, that your lungs ache
I don't think that your still waiting
Track Name: 17 Years
I don't think that I can keep letting people get so close to me
Sadly it seems, that people can't keep up with me!

I don't look like myself! And nobody else can tell!
They all feel like I should be 17 years ahead of me!

Lately I've been watching me becoming something I know I can't be
I don't think that I can keep this up when I can't even look at me.

I don't look like myself! And nobody else can tell!
They all feel like I should be 17 years ahead of me!

I'm ungratefully broken, and I can't help loving when you leave
I'm so thankful to be lonely, so feel free to walk away from me!

Sadly it seems, people can't keep up with me!

I don't look like myself! And nobody else can tell!
They all feel like I should be 17 years ahead of me!
Track Name: To My Surprise
Why can't I spot, things that are worth holding onto?
Forget what I said--I can't be there till death
Those things just don't sit well with me

But oh! To my surprise, everything has turned out just as planned.
But sadly, it seems that nothing just stays in my head.

I don't understand!
One second I'm fine, and the next I just can't keep my head!

But oh! To my surprise, everything has turned out just as planned.
But sadly, it seems that nothing just stays in my head.

I can't keep hoping for things that just don't exist!
I can't keep any of this!

But oh! To my surprise, everything has turned out just as planned.
But sadly, it seems that nothing just stays in my head.

But oh! To my surprise, everything has turned out just as planned.
But sadly, it seems that nothing just stays in my head.
Track Name: Take Me Back To Seattle
It makes no difference where I've ended up it's been--

I think that you all should take one step back
I don't think things would change even if I had stopped

I've always been the same way, it has never changed.
Track Name: Early To Bed!
You can't one up a cunt!
Track Name: Early To Wine!
Early to bed, and early to wine, keeps all of us off your streets for the night!
Full to the brim to end half lived lives, wine keeps our men sickly, broke, and dim eyed!
Chim- Chimney Chim-Chimney Chim-Chim-Cher-ee! A drunk is as lucky as luck can be!
Chim- Chimney Chim-Chimney Chim-Chim-Cher-oo! Good luck will rub off just like all drinks will do!
In like a lamb, and out like a dog, spinning through rooms until something wears off!
Full to the brim to shut half lit eyes, wine keeps our men sickly broke and dim-eyed!
Chim- Chimney Chim-Chimney Chim-Chim-Cher-ee! A drunk is as lucky as luck can be!
Chim- Chimney Chim-Chimney Chim-Chim-Cher-oo! Good luck will rub off just like all drinks will do!
Track Name: I Don't Love This
I'm starting to realize I just don't look like myself
Sadly it seems that it's gotten harder to tell

I don't love this the way I should
I don't love this the way I should

Things aren't improving at the rate you'd expect there to be
With all this rebuilding they still haven't changed anything

I don't love this the way I should
I don't love this the way I should

I will die younger from this I know.
I will die younger from this I know
And that's alright, because I know, when it is fine, to run and hide!
Track Name: The Second Floor
Haha. I'm funny.
Track Name: Among Other Things
I woke up last night to find that I still hadn't left
Surprised to find you once again fast asleep on my chest
As much as I would love to stay and hold you through the night
I'm too afraid of what you'd say in the sober light

I'm afraid that I have let you alone for far too long,
Because I can hear you talking in your sleep like somethings wrong
I don't think I care how long this all takes to play out
At least I have nights where I get you all to myself.
