Track Name: Smiling
Avoiding conflict at all costs
I'm more than happy to get lost
Show some teeth when you feel the worst
I'm only smiling cause it hurts

Cause it hurts

It's not quite what I had in mind
But you just can't lose what you'll never find
It's the sort of thing that you won't get back
I'm only smiling when they laugh

When the laugh

If we all get what we deserve
We'll all be smiling until it hurts
Track Name: You're Living the Life
You're the living the life
You sleep with the lights
Track Name: Death Invented Time
Yea I called your name
But we were both the same
Accept the simple fact
That nothing ever comes back
No nothing ever comes back

Yea I called your name
From a new perspective
On a different place
But death is not selective
No death is not

I just found out that death invented time
I just realized that it doesn't really matter

Yea I saw your face
It was the same as mine
To grow old with grace
Despite the passage of time
Track Name: Red Beans and Rice
I've been thinking bout doing drugs, dropping out of life
I've been thinking bout BBQ oysters, red beans and rice
I've been thinking I love my girl. Damn love is nice
Me and her gonna see the world, maybe even twice

I've been thinking we're fucking up, not living right
I've been thinking we got too much stuff, not enough time
Where's it go when we're dead and gone, probably let it rot
Lift a finger to the ones in charge man it's all we've got
Track Name: The Amish Don't Wear Jordans
Where'd ya go?
Moment of silence
Thought to know
Ya'd kill me with kindness
But that aint so
You'd rather with violence
Left to show
That's where your pride is

I won't tell you where to go
Just a moment of silence

Shaking bones
Showing your slyness
Nightmare grows
Why did I try this
No game of thrones
Thank you your highness
Ask you though
What is compliance?

I won't tell you where to go
Just a moment of silence
Track Name: Homies
Yea I wish I had homies
We could ride ponies,
If only I had homies


Eat Pepperoni
Track Name: Insert Name Here
She was getting close to me
Said I was her friend
Didn’t take it personally
But even I could not pretend

Getting close to me
But never wanting more
Which we both could not afford

Getting close to me
Becoming quite a chore
Always wanting more

She was getting close to me
Even said I was her friend
But nothing ever starts
The way I think it should begin
Track Name: Reclusive Me
I got more after a workday
In keeping with my pattern
I forgot it was your birthday
I didn’t think it’d matter

I got her note, forgot to call, I don’t feel anything at all.
