Track Name: Almost Right
You work so hard to make it sound right
But you don't even hear it anymore
And it just doesn't feel like it did before
When it was almost right
Track Name: Steeping
All this waiting's got me
Steeping like a cup of tea
So my hope is that the longer it takes
The stronger that I'll be
Because when I finally reach your mouth
I want to wake you warmly
And fill you with energy
So 'til then tap answer to pull me up
And hang up to drop me back in
Track Name: Cups and Wrappers
With a shaved head I waited for you to call
Eating pizza at Chris-Town mall
All I wanted to know was that you knew you were wrong
All I wanted to do was put it in a song
Rock and roll wont make it all ok
But it used to seem that way
And with cups and wrappers at my right
I drove my car all through the night
Feeling so goddamned justified
To feel so unsatisfied
Rock and roll will someday go away
But it never used to seem that way
Track Name: Hot Plate
You're a hot plate I can't have in my room
A fire might start while I'm away
You're a small stone in my hoodie pocket
A token to take out when the weather gets rough
And it's not fair to you that I remember everything
And it's not fair to me that you forgot
You're a stretch mark hidden under my clothes
A growing pain that wont go away
You're cold hands on a fever
You're blood on the bottle
You're two dogs in the desert
You're fine, you're fine
You're a lot to handle
Track Name: Do You Really Want Me
As a kid I felt nervous around adults
And now I'm an adult and
I feel nervous around my friends
I don't know how to answer your question
And I question it's intention
What do you really want me to say?
I know you don't think I'm ok
Track Name: Monday Night Nitro
The coffee in me feels like nitroglycerine
While I crank up the songs that shake me to my core
I am pulled, I am pulling, I am splitting at the seams
Sealing up the windows and the doors
Any victory in a storm
is something to hold on to
Anyway to keep warm
Keep the roads open for you
Track Name: Stunner
It's like you have theme music
That plays when you enter the room
And I try to not seem stunned
But I'm not fooling anyone
I'm frozen right where I stand
And this is not where I belong
Mine is the love of a fan for your themesong
Track Name: Cool and Blue
I want to wake the way you do
Step into the morning cool and blue
I want you to feel like you
could rely on my if you need to
You've watched me become a scarecrow
And you've watched me become a crow
And we grow the most while we're sleeping
Even if we sleep alone
Track Name: Hoarder House
I'm sorry babe I know you're doing your part
But I can't let anyone into
this hoarder house of a heart
I look at people through a peep hole
This was over before it could start
