Track Name: Fast Times
Mean street is hard to beat
Wipe the dirt on your feet
I never said this would be easy
Grow up to be like me
Grow up to plant a seed
Wake up to kill a dream

San Fransisco, San Fransisco baby

Why don't your marry me?
Why don't you wait and see what kind of man I be?

San Fransisco, San Fransisco baby
San Fransisco, San Fransisco baby

Mean Street, hard to breathe
Walk by the rotten trees
I never said this would be easy
Whoever said this would be easy?
Track Name: Not Yours
You've been gone for so long
Let your problems dissolve into one blurry night
You'll like forget, forget
Comes with regret, regret, regret, regret

I'm not your lover
I'm not your anybody
I'm not your not yours

99 heat of July
The first time that I felt alive
Yeah I made my little nest and I sleep in it
Will you make your little nest 'til there's nothing nothing left?

I'm not your lover
I'm not your anybody
I'm not your not yours
'Cause I got no lover
I got no anybody
I got no got no
Track Name: Distractions
I'm waiting for a time that I get it right
Is there something wrong?
Tell me a little bit about your life
A little secret, I won't keep it

Distractions everywhere
The webs they spin look so damn frightening
Something's in the air

If I just tried a little bit harder
I wouldn't be sitting in this fucking room with no AC
It's so humid

Distractions everywhere
The webs they spin look so damn frightening
Something's in the air
They tell me it's ok
It's all up in my brain
What went wrong again today?
Track Name: Slacker Dreams
They say you're all right when you're not, not so certain at all
Sleeping in 'til nine, not getting up 'til half past time

Just keep watching
Just keep watching all your TV shows
Your highs and lows never felt so...

Silently lying alone
Who's that stranger in your bed?
Getting up at half past three
You must be going somewhere, yeah

Just keep watching
Just keep watching all your TV shows
Your highs and lows
Complication, you're an apparition
And no symbiote, or friendly host
Will help you see this
Track Name: Something's Wrong
Jenny slept in a different bed
Ran out the door in last night's dress
Yeah her boss noticed

He says don't you get, don't you care?
Why you always late?
Work hard, go home, get yourself straight
Don't you get, don't you care?
Why you always late?
Work hard, go home, get yourself

Something's wrong my world stopped turning
Everyday's a brand new burden
What the hell are we doing here?

Todd takes his daily dose of pills
Checked out the first chance he got
First chance he got

They say don't you get, don't you care?
Why you always late?
Work hard, go home get yourself straight
Don't you get, don't you care?
Why you always late?
Work hard, go home get yourself

Something's wrong my world stopped turning
Everyday's a brand new burden
What the hell are we doing here?
Track Name: Corinna, Corinna
I called to ask how you are today
No one was on the line
Too late to rewind the tape
I'm too dumb to remember my place here

I wonder how you see me?
Through peripheral eyes
Keep telling myself these lies
That I'm the very first person who comes to mind

Corinna, Corinna
Far away from here

Everything seems backwards
I stand on my knees
Tell me what makes you tick, yeah
What makes you feel at ease?

Corinna, Corinna
Far away from here
With all you are
With all you want
You'll disappear

Now that you're gone I've last my thoughts

I called to ask how you are today
Someone was on the line
Too late to remember your name
I'm too lame to play your fucking games

Corinna, Corinna
Far away from here
With all you are
With all you want
You'll disappear
Track Name: Idiot
There's a knife wedged between my eyes
Or that's just last night's whiskey rye
Here comes a call, a reminder why
Just lay in bed curl up and die
Don't get up

One more drink never hurt no one
That's what I say and I never learn
There's that nagging feeling, creeping
What'd I do and what's the consequence

Always taken out of context
Let's calm down and forget
What little we recollect

Everything that I've come to know
I threw it up next to that skylit window
All those cars that drive right by
I wonder why, I wonder why?

Always taken out of context
Let's calm down and forget
What little we recollect
Because we really need this
Some kind of sense of purpose
Not sure that we deserve it
Track Name: Find A Way
Concentrated on the waning possibility that you're still here
High on thinking I'm resilient
Get me the hell out of here

If I could find, I could find, I could find a way
For you to stay
I'd be all right, I'd count my sheep
No more drunken, fleeting sleep

You're the constant I rely on
You're the only one I can't get
An outreached hand hangs in the air
Oh wait that's right, there's no one there

If I could find, I could find, I could find a way
For you to stay
I'd be all right, I'd count my sheep
No more drunken, fleeting sleep
Believe in me

Embrace your demons
There's no reaon
To be confused
To be recluse

If I could find, I could find, I could find a way
For you to stay
I'd be all right, I'd count my sheep
No more drunken, fleeting sleep
Believe in me
Track Name: Up All Night
Give me all the time in the world
I'll still fuck it up with you
My timings never right
I think that I missed my que

All those pretty lights, they look so bright
I'ma lay in bed, stay up all night
Staring at my wall just seems so nice

I want to feel all right on my own
I want to hear your voice on my way home

All those pretty lights, they look so bright
I'ma lay in bed, stay up all night
Staring at my wall just seems so nice
Track Name: Languages
You'll be all right, say hi to a stranger
You better sever and dissipate all your ties
With everyone you've held so high, alright

Turn left on that try so hard boulevard
Oh your now in your neighbors lawn
The ambulance is on its way
Your devil's luck fades away

Find my mind honey
It needs a quarantine quarantine
I lost my ride somewhere on the 35, 405
No it's fine, I'll survive

Look at you, so amused
I can count to friend in so many languages
I see the end in all my relations
Find belief, till a dying seed
Are you here with me?

Find my mind honey
It needs a quarantine quarantine
I lost my ride somewhere on the 35, 405
No it's fine I'll survive
