Track Name: friendly
i was pushed aside
to give you room to sleep at night
and i’m as serious as suicide
when i tell you that i’m fine

i say
oh, sweet friendly
why do you rot my teeth
and bring me agony when i am weak
i can’t decide
it makes me want to cry
it tears me up inside when you
make me happy

i caught the corner of a crime
ive felt so removed from time
and you squeezed my hand so tight
it reminded me that i

could die
without knowing a thing about my life

oh, sweet friendly
why do you rot my teeth
Track Name: better
hey, hey, it’s a beautiful day
but i can’t seem to stay awake
and so soon, i’ll be stuck in my room
till the voices around me break

and it gets better everyday
yeah it gets better everyday

i wasted all my days just to see you
oh, it wasn’t long
and after all that time, to be near you
well i hope i’ll get along
so long
to the days that kept me withdrawn
the days that rained on me so strong

oh dear, i’ve been filling my ears
with reactions i can’t escape
but i think they’ll be here for a wink
then they’ll vanish without a trace

i wasted all my days just to see you
oh, it wasn’t long
and after all that time, to be near you
well i hope i’ll get along
so long
to the days that kept me withdrawn
the days that rained on me so strong
Track Name: i know
you know you’re always on my mind, dear
even if i neglect to make that perfectly clear
see, i’m not well equipped
to handle things like this
i apologize if i was cruel

i must have blocked out what life was before you
you dust me off and got my feet back on the floor
i was seeing stars
under handlebars
when you held my hand
and kissed my cheek

give me breath and morning dew
give me back the evening i met you
give me memories that lie, that made me perfect at one time
for you

i know, i know
Track Name: cornerstones
wednesday mornings feel like such a drag
my tired eyes see no surprises
metrics, we know you're not the bad guy
but if you're not shitty than what the hell am I?

hating yourself is never time well spent
but this low year has given me hell

it sounded like a car crash
on the day my father moved out of my house
golden yellow hues
cornerstones, all buried black and blue

hating yourself is never time well spent
but this low year has given me hell

how could I be lost
on the streets we grew up on?
please, don't tell me you're saving me again
oh please, don't tell me that

hating yourself is never time well spent
but this low year has given me hell
Track Name: how charming
i’ve noticed the way that you are
can squeeze all the hurt from my heart
and how you appear from afar
pulls me closer and closer

lanky legs approached me at my stop
blowing bubbles in his soda pop
trying to recall what he forgot
laces laying on the rocks

if i fooled you to get past your gate
it was only cause i was afraid
and if maybe means maybe okay
i could talk all day

lanky legs approached me at my stop
blowing bubbles in his soda pop
trying to recall what he forgot
laces laying on the rocks

ba, ba ba, ba ba
holding on, holding on

lanky legs approached me at my stop
how charming
Track Name: doctor
i haven’t left my bed in days
i’ve such a fever and i feel twice my age
oh, doctor tell me what went wrong
have i been in the cold too long
please hold me in your healing arms

i haven’t heard from you in weeks
my phone won’t ring, it only weeps
i fell and scraped up both my knees
i swear, it’s an emergency
if only you could fall for me

d-d-d-doctor please
tell me what i need
d-d-d-doctor please
tell me what i need

oh, doctor, tell me who’s to blame
have i just made a grave mistake?

can’t something take this crush away?

d-d-d-doctor please
tell me what i need
d-d-d-doctor please
tell me what i need
Track Name: imitator
i've gotta make a decision
i've got a reputation at stake
if i'm not worth the ovation
then why's my name on each move you make

i've got you figured out
who you foolin?
you think you know me now

(callin, callin out)
what a happy high
(stealin, stealin now)
what's mine
(screaming, screaming out)
we know, we know

that you're an ima-ima-imitator
an ima-ima-imitator
gonna catch you, catch you, catch you later

you'll have to make me believe you
'cuz how you are is convinced to refuse
you have to make some mistakes
to get your face in the frame
don't try to lie to yourself and get by

(callin, callin out)
what a happy high
(stealin, stealin now)
what's mine
(screaming, screaming out)
we know, we know

that you're an ima-ima-imitator
an ima-ima-imitator
gonna catch you, catch you, catch you later
Track Name: derek
derek, when it’s spring
he amuses himself
like there’s nobody else,
says he thinks that we mind

calls me on the phone
when i think i’m alone
and there’s nobody home
but borrowed time

oh
oh you needn’t worry, no
he always on your side

derek, in his nook,
with his nose in a book
lifting words with his looks,
they settle calm in his eyes

derek, by the trees,
charming honey from bees,
til he builds up a sneeze
and then what a surprise

oh
oh, you needn’t worry, no
he wouldn't hurt a fly

derek, when it’s spring
he amuses himself
like there’s nobody else,
says he thinks that we mind

oh
oh, you needn’t worry, no
he’s always on your side
Track Name: nye
where were you on new years eve?
i don't think that anything is that impressive to me
'cause once i was the king of all
but you're rarely in town for long

well, everything is fine
goodnight
Track Name: drive on
what else can you do
but drive on
shaking your head
at all the awful things he said

early morning fix
left you feeling sick
i found out today
I never miss you anyway

today i saw her
looking uneasy
snickering to her friends
all those awful things she says

early evening kicks
left you feeling sick
maybe you feel betrayed
but i never miss you anyway

ties to you have went away
but i can't pack up memories
like autumn leaves and christmas trees
i can't pack up memories
yes, i can't pack up

early evening kicks
left me feeling sick
i found out today
but I never miss you anyway

what else can I do
but move on
trying to forget
all the awful things I said
