Track Name: Music Major at a Birthday Party
I’ve got a double-edged tongue and it’s clear to see
when I talk about others just why they hate me
So, I’m letting go of my evil ways
I’ll share my own flaws and you’ll hear me say
Track Name: Jim Braddock
Sometimes I just wish I knew what I
Was planning on doing the rest of my life
Not really a drop out, since they didn’t want me
It’s not so bad, I was mostly just trying

To keep up appearances for who, well I don’t know
But that just didn’t work, and I’m happy, but I’m lost

I’m a broken man, but I think that that’s alright
I’m a broken man, but I think I’m doing fine
I'm a broken man,
But that means I can build again

I’m not whole but I promise I’m not as sad
As it seems I’m just trying to purge out the bad

Thought I heard my own footsteps in stereo
But I didn’t know I was in a crowd
I lack self-awareness, but not in a rude way
Really just can’t tell quite what’s going on

I’ve got this problem where I can’t learn how to cry
When everyone expects it of me
But when I watch reruns alone at night
I always choke up, but I don’t really think
It’s my fault

I’m a broken man, but I think that that’s alright
I’m a broken man, but I think I’m doing fine
I'ma broken man,
But that means I can build again

I need to be alone
Not all the time, but just for now, If you’ll just let me go
I need to be alone
Track Name: No, I Know
I never learned to love till I was 21
And even then It didn’t feel quite real
I don’t do anything right the first time around
In my experience at least I just can’t trust how I feel

And then when things explode
I feel like I don’t know
What the next step to keep me
In line will be.

I’m just not the one to get all the luck
I find the crazy ones then I feel stuck
With my circumstances and second chances
Are all I can reach out for

There’s all the things that we've got to deal with
And all the things that make us strong
It’s all the same and to be honest
It’s our decision on if it turns out wrong.

But now, all that I can see, is life
From this bottom, looking down perspective.
How can i expect to be
Happier going in the same direction

If an apple a day’s got something to do with a doctor
Then if I stop eating fruit maybe a nurse will come my way
Even if she did I couldn’t get up the guts to talk to her
If she’d make the first move, man, I swear it’d make my day!

Plastic love aside I still just can’t quite
Figure out what to do with myself
I've got time to kill but I don’t have a gun
So i guess strangling and stabbing work out just as well

There’s all the things that we've got to deal with
And all the things that make us strong
It’s all the same and to be honest
It’s our decision on if it turns out wrong.

The life I lead, and the life I led
And the life I hope to have
Can’t occupy the same space and time
They can’t be on the same path.
But there’s an almost imperceptible
Place I hope to reach
Where all my pathetic fragmented lifeline
Ends can finally meet.

But now, all that I can see, is life
From this bottom, looking down perspective.
How can i expect to be
Happier going in the same direction
Track Name: The Cares of the World
Is it enough?
Is it enough for me
To sit on a throne of almost truth
And mediocrity
There’s a level I know that I
Could reach if I just try
But it’s just not enough.
I’m not enough

Who am I?
Who am I to say
That i’m too good for this or that
Or that I’m afraid to change?
I’m too proud to turn and see
The lessons I could learn
I’ll just claim life’s too tough,
But I’m not enough.

Not to say that I don’t feel that I can make it
(Trying to come up with the right words to say)
It’s just alone that I don’t measure up
(As I stumble and stagger and get in your way)
If I tell the truth I don’t think I could take it
(As I embarrass myself in front of you and your friends)
Whatever got me here tells me not to give up
(Overthinking this whole thing to death)

I’m not enough
I’m not enough to be
Someone known for what I write and play
So I won’t expect to see
My name in lights
Or even written in the dirt
So I’ll strum away the hurt
And it’s enough
Track Name: Brain Exercises
I almost wish I was
More Sentimental
Even though I don’t care about it
It tends to hurt the ones I love

Emotion and motion of life aside
I’ve had a rough few months so forgive my mind
When it runs away and doesn’t return
As quickly as you’d like

Others despise what I love no matter what they say
Yet retaliating antipathy doesn’t solve anything

My priorities fall when something comes alone
That seems like it might be fun
Impetuous, yes, but i’m pretty sure that
It’s better than falling behind

It’s amazing the value a release valve has
In easing the pressures I find
Friendship is one thing, but it can’t just be that
Some things remain in my mind

Letting go isn’t easy
As simple as that sounds
But honestly i can tell you clearly
That it’s worth the exit fee

Emotion and motion of life aside
I’ve had a rough few months so forgive my mind
When it runs away and doesn’t return
As quickly as you’d like.
Track Name: Billboards Hot 100
There’s been a line outside my door,
But they’re usually on their way out
You can call it bragging, but this isn’t pride
It’s something I would change about myself
And I know that it’s a symptom
Of something bigger still

Hey, remember when I said
You might hate me by the summer?
I guess we’re not going on
That trip after all.
I really didn’t get it
So I guess it’s no wonder

You've got me singing songs that I don't even like
Just to get you out of my mind.
Have you ever had a dream that didn't come true?
I do, I did, and that dream was you.

So now I’m running in circles
But at least my purpose is clear
I know what I should be doing and try
But really, I’m nowhere near
Where I should be heading
And this map is just no help

Oh no! I’ve got no complaints, but one
Cuz I’m the problem.
And so, I’m still no saint, but I’ve
Found I’m still not done

But now I’m singing songs that I don't even like
Just to get you out of my mind.
Have you ever had a dream that didn't come true?
I do, I did, and that dream was you.

Oh no.
I’ve got no complaints, but one
Cuz I’m the problem.
Track Name: This Isn't a Pity Party, It's Just Sad
So 20 miles and 2 weeks was apparently enough
To rule me out from being anything more than
That one guy who almost got a girlfriend

It’s funny how this story seems to me a lot like a metaphor
To explain all the things i’ve been through and all the reasons for
My trying to write inspired songs but my motivation is nearly gone

Well, motivation and inspiration are inextricably tied
Honestly i can’t seem to see that light in my eyes

There’s something you should know
And here goes nothing
I’m not sure what I want you to be
And it goes to show
That certainty is something
That ought to take more precedence for me

It’s taken time for me to sort out these thoughts
And in the interim I
Ended up finding someone else
And losing them all at the same time
It’s getting harder and harder to know
If i’m the only one who’s wrong
Or if I can shift the blame and feel little better
About how my mind shut off

And it’s not like I enjoy being so annoyed
It guess it’s time to come to terms with what I’ve been trying to avoid

There’s something you should know
And here goes nothing
I’m not sure what I want you to be
And it goes to show
That certainty is something
That ought to take more precedence for me
