Track Name: Close Call (Adderall Anxiety)
adderall anxiety
cocaine psychosis
i've lost a lot of my good friends
to overdoses
you know i'm the type of guy
to try anything a bunch of times
i don't need another close call
i've already been there before
i don't need another close call
i've already been there before

adderall anxiety
and marijuana hypnosis
i'm caught up in a feedback loop
of everyday neurosis
i know i'm the type of guy
that gets lost in my head sometimes
i don't need another close call
i've already been there before

i'm saving my mushrooms for warm weather
and the weekend
pop a couple caps and stems
spend the whole day constantly peaking
i wanna do this right
i don't wanna lose this high
i'm saving my mushrooms
for the weekend

adderall anxiety
too many psychotropics
locked myself in a dark room
a tab sheet of doses
Track Name: Sneakin' Out
sneakin out of your bed
so i can smoke a cigarette
maybe have some time to think
blood spit spattered
on the sink
how the hell did we get home
i hope it wasnt me that drove
frying pan on the stove
beside an untouched line of coke

sneakin out of your bed
goin out to buy some eggs
scratches up and down my leg
big bump on my forehead
im really glad we made it home
i hope it wasnt me that drove
hate when i wake up alone
i hope it wasnt me

ive treated my body like a beat up car
use it until it falls apart
i dont wanna know how long i got
i dont wanna know whats wrong
i dont wanna know whats wrong

sneakin out of your bed
got some time to clear my head
i hate how much i love drugs
never seem to have enough
how the hell did we get home
i hope it wasnt me that drove
thats the way the weekend goes
i hope it wasnt me

ive treated my body like a beat up car
use it until it falls apart
i dont wanna know how long i got
i dont wanna know whats wrong
i dont wanna know whats wrong
i dont wanna know whats wrong
i dont wanna know whats wrong
Track Name: Tomato Tomato
everything can be so overwhelming
im doing a million things at the exact same time
im sure complaining is not helping
but right now its making me feel a little more alright

id rather suffer than recover from my daily addictions
id rather suffer than recover from my daily addictions
because at least i know exactly what it is i am getting
its nice to feel like i am in control in control of something

its probably going to be fine
i say it to myself all the time
its probably totally fine
and i say it to myself all the time

i need to clear my head
i need to clear my head
some weed and a great big bed
i need to clear my head

its probably going to be fine
i say it to myself all the time
its probably totally fine
and i say it to myself all the time
its probably going to be fine
i say it to myself all the time
its probably totally fine
and i say it to myself all the time
Track Name: Thru the Night
i go out to get drunk to be sad with my friends
i go out to get drunk to be sad with my friends
yet somehow i think tonight might be different
i go out to get drunk to be sad with my friends

i made it thru the night
i made it thru the night
im still a little high
i made it thru the night

leave the bar to go back to yr house and makeout
leave the bar to go back to yr house and makeout
with the hopes of getting someone out of their clothes
leave the bar to go back to yr house and makeout

i made it thru the night
i made it thru the night
im still a little high
i made it thru the night
i made it thru the night
i made it thru the night
im still a little high
i made it thru the night

i think im doing fine
gonna be alright
it happens all the time
starting to lose my mind
know i will be fine
ive got the end in sight
gonna be alright
gonna be gonna be just fine

i made it thru the night
i made it thru the night
im still a little high
i made it thru the night
i made it thru the night
i made it thru the night
im still a little high
i made it thru the night
Track Name: Liar
im starting to hate everything again
it happens every year it feels like it will never end
i can pretend that im fine
i can stand up straight and smile
all the while deep inside
i know im just a liar
i know im just a liar

im starting to hate everything again
i can barely get myself out of bed
i wish i was dead im feeling numb
i know my reaction is dumb
when the feeling come its all i want
i know im just a liar
im acting like a child
i know im just a liar
Track Name: Yr House Isn't Haunted
yr house isnt haunted baby you are alone
today is the perfect day to numb out stoned
the ghost that you saw in the hall wasnt anything at all
a trick of your mind late at night some headlights on the wall

yr house isnt haunted baby youre going mad
youve prepped for the apocalypse and its coming fast
yr not losing yr mind yr doing fine itll wear of soon
lay in the grass let it pass get lost in the gloom

you are alone
and so am i

yr house isnt haunted baby you are alone
every bone in yr body wants to run but you dont
yr eyes grow wide yr terrified yr tongues too tied to talk
all you can hear in a room somewhere is the ticking of a clock

you are alone
you are alone
and so am i
Track Name: It Was Mine (the Whole Time)
my mom said she found a bong in my jacket
my mom said she found a bong in my jacket
i didnt have the heart to tell her a bong wasnt what she found
but who am i to argue when theres paraphernalia lying on the ground

yeah it was mine the whole time
yeah it was mine the whole time

my mom said id be grounded forever
my dad said id be locked up til i die
i couldnt bring myself to tell em i didnt mind
i couldnt bring myself to tell em id be fine spending all my time inside

yeah it was mine the whole time
yeah it was mine the whole time
tried to blame it on my brother but she knew it was a lie
yeah it was mine the whole time

when i was 16 i drove to morgantown west virginia
at a headshop on high street i bought my first one hitter

yeah it was mine the whole time
yeah it was mine the whole time
tried to blame it on my brother but she knew it was a lie
yeah it was mine the whole time
Track Name: Wild Flowers
wild flowers when you were young
made you as happy as red roses do now
you used to think love was all around you then
now you know a deeper darkness surrounds

wild flowers when you were young
tied in chains to lay around your neck
the purple peonies you wore in your hair
you always thought that they smelled the best

the sun seems not to move at all
until it does and then its gone
and all the days go just the same
and all the days go just the same

wild flowers when you were young
made you as happy as red roses do now
you believed in each plucked prophecy
love foretold in petals piled all around

wild flowers in a brilliant boquet
hung to dry in the light of the window bay
you loved to watch all the colors fade away
it makes your heart feel melancholy
it makes your heart feel melancholy
it makes your heart feel melancholy
it makes your heart feel melancholy
it makes your heart feel melancholy

my lover is slim as summer
and often just as listless
my memories of her
are all honeydew and hibiscus
hibiscus
the sun seems not to move at all
until it does and then its gone
and all the days go just the same
and all the days go just the same
Track Name: Sun Spits
space bends like a bowling ball on a trampoline
were all mammals with a long lust for the saccharine
the house banks on the laws of probability
and all i know is that i dont know anything

the car crawls like a saturated centipede
satan sings to the senate in the key of greed
come to the tits all you meat bodies its time to feed
the alchemy of alcohol is a red hot crucible and i am susceptible my dependence is chemical

learn to let it go
let my mind float
learn to let it go

the dog barks at a ghost in the empty night
it came down from its craft on a beam of light
the kid claims that hes been here the entire time
you cant prove that hes wrong im sticking with my alibi

the sun spits in the eyes of the candied corpse
the satellite started slipping from its charted course
the boy wonder bears it all on the pommel horse
and my tunneled reality is stretched out in front of me
im packaged in plastic and constructed socially

learn to let it go
let my mind float
learn to let it go
learn to let it go
let my mind float
learn to let it go
