Track Name: Lucky Sentimental
You know I'm not the type to let shit like this go.
But, I still want to watch Twin Peaks, and nap all day,
and kiss the curve in your clavicle.

I guess I'm a fool,
for wasting my breath on you.
I guess I'm a fool,
for missing good mornings and goodnight calls.
Well, the lucky sentimental still hangs on my wall.
I hang my head.
I've always been against the grit,
so I'm rough around the edge.

But don't let me go,
I'm not the type who can just figure this out on my own.
Don't let me go,
I don't want to be alone, anymore.
Miserable here alone.

Well, you said that I was wasting space.

Well don't let me go,
I'm not the type who can figure this out on my own.
Don't let me go,
Cause I'm not the type who can just figure this out on my own.

Don't let me go,
I'm not the type who can just figure this out on my own.
Don't let me go,
I don't want to be alone, anymore.
Miserable here alone.

I'm not a waste of space.
But I'm easy to erase.
Track Name: Leech
Someone that I don't know is driving me crazy.
I haven't been myself this year.
It's just a simple plan of action,
to get you back on your feet.
I appreciate your cynicism towards everyone but me.
But, I think that you should leave before this gets really ugly.

But, if you were a leech,
and you'd attach yourself to me,
I don't think that I would complain at all.

If you were a leech,
and you'd attach yourself to me,
I don't think that I'd have the right complain at all.

I'll pull you in,
drag you down with me.
And then I'll let you go.

You pulled me in,
dragged me down with you.
And then you let me go.

If you were a leech,
and you'd attach yourself to me,
I don't think that I'd have that I would complain at all.

But, I am the leech,
with your affections feeding me.
And I don't think, I have the right to complain at all. At all.

You pulled me in,
dragged me down with you.
And then you let me go.
You just let me go.
Track Name: Everyone But Me
"You must hate yourself a lot,
It's really pretty sad.
You had so much going for you, Jon.
Where did it go bad?

And I'll be sleeping on a bed that was surely made for two.
I'm writing bad poems that I'll never show to you.
Thinking a whole lot about not getting what I wanted.
I just wanted to be the best version of myself in front of you.

But, I don't want to wake up if I wake up all alone.
I'm sick of shedding tears on the regular.
A piece of me got lost with us,
and now I have no faith in love.
While you just undress yourself for everyone you see,
everyone but me.
Oh yeah.

"You must break your own heart a lot,
for thinking it could work.
She had you wrapped around her finger, and let you go so quick.

Soon she'll be laying on a bed with nothing but regret,
for letting you go so easily.
One day you'll try to talk and she'll say it's all your fault.
You'll remind yourself why you're alone in the first place."

But, I don't want to wake up if I wake up all alone.
I'm sick of shedding tears on the regular.
A piece of me got lost with us,
and now I have no faith in love.
While you just undress yourself for everyone you see,
everyone but me.
Oh yeah.

But, I'm still gonna wake up if I wake up all alone.
I never even think about you anymore.
Detrimental to my health,
so you can just go fuck yourself.
A dusty book up on the shelf,
that anyone can read.
"What You Did To Me"
A story wrote by me.
Oh yeah.
Track Name: 6am Beer Man
Driving around the country,
or writing songs in my bathroom.
Just need a little time,
to get over you and I.
I just need a little time,
to not romanticize,
every single step that I take.
Every single promise that you break.

And I'm sure I'd be much happier if I,
didn't depend on you to smile.

And I guess I should apologize for getting stoned on your back porch.
While all my school friends cheered me on,
as if sucking at life could've been a fucking sport.
You should've never seen me in that condition.
Please believe me when I say, I never want to touch that shit again.

It's not for me.
So I called my Mom immediately.
And I said "please come pick me up, because this time I really mean it,
I really fucked up."

Driving around the country,
or writing songs in my bathroom.
It all looks the same.
It all feels the same without you.

Without you.
Track Name: The Effort Is Never Worth The Outcome
Writing out letters that I'll never even send.
Drinking black coffee and chain smoking cigarettes.
I'm a shade of off white,
I'm not quite there yet.

Sometimes I think I should sleep around,
and collect all the towns spit in my mouth.
Your words in my head,
I'm blushing red at all you've said.

And I'm such a clown.
From making out to down and out.
I don't need this.
Fuck it, I'm out.

You pulled me in just to push me out.
I can't get your bottom lip out of my mouth.
I'm a shade of dark blue,
I'm bruising quickly over you.

Sometimes I think we should just chill out,
and spend every night glued to my couch.
I don't need more ammo to write another panic song about.

And I'm such a clown.
From hanging out to kissing now.
I could use what you're about.

When you hurt, I hurt to too.
And that probably sounds crazy because I just met you.
But, when I looked straight at your eyes,
mine dilated twice their normal size.

You smoke like you now what you're doing.
So, I'll pretend I know too.
I wish it would start raining,
so I could walk and talk and get soaking wet with you.

And I'm still in shock that we even talk.
I'm still in shock.
Track Name: Actor
Am I getting better?
Am I just getting better at acting?
I think you’ve got me figured out,
with your tongue inside my mouth.
I’m an asshole.

Am I getting better?
Am I just getting better at drinking?
And kissing every girl I meet,
in hopes to build my self esteem.
I’m a taker.

It’s not the right time.
It’s not a good idea.
Well, maybe I’m pretty biased.
But, that doesn’t seem fair to me.

But, I lust after her,
and she’s in love with me.
Well, this is fucking out of control,
man seriously.
Do you really think you’ll be better off alone?
Yeah, you’re the one to talk,
never knowing what you want.
And it just takes a toll on my heart, girl. Honestly.
For just this once, could you be straight up with me?

And if you knew me half as well as you think you do.
I wouldn’t waste all my time convincing you:
“I’m not who you think I am.”
I probably don’t give a damn about your band, man.
I hope you understand,
that I’m rotten to the core.
A selfish attention whore.
Don’t expect optimism,

I left it at the door.

And there’s a thousand nights like tonight.
You look me in the eyes,
it eats away at me.

I’m running out of air to breathe.
And you’re pretty good for me,
I’m all that you want and need.
But, I won’t kiss you unless someone else is ignoring me.
It’s fucked up.
Track Name: Caffeine & Nicotine
I got off of work late,
and drove right to your house.
You sent me your address.

I was exhausted and nervous.
And that was the night that you bought me coffee.
I should’ve known before,
that you didn’t actually like me.

And that’s when I romanticized the signature look
in those big brown eyes.
I swear I won’t forget that night,
for the rest of my entire life.

With Alkaline Trio,
and a pack of Marlboro Blues,

I know you tried your best to make me fall in love with you.
With your favorite song on repeat in the background,
we kissed at a red light.
And everything felt right.
At least to me.
Track Name: Drop Out
Machine like in exterior.
This is not the man I want to be.
Subtle like setting suns.
Casting their shadow over us.
That, I feel I just can't fill anymore.

I miss your laugh,

I hear your voice.
And I am still a wrecking ball.

I’ll smoke and smoke,
until my lungs are black.
And I won’t stop until I get you back.

I’ll pray and pray,
everyday.
But, even God could care less about the things I have to say.

Where’d where you?
Where’d you go when I needed you most.
Where’d you go?
I’m scared no one can love,
quite like you.
Where’d you go?

You don’t care,
so why should I?

My heart is broke,
but I’m still alive.
Track Name: Kiss
I’ve got this love,
but no one wants it at all.
And a big heart, but girl,
you make it feel so small.

Like a dog that’s out of tricks,
I hang my head down,
and put my tail between my legs.

You are conscious of the damage that can come from just one kiss.
Well you are lonely, and there is tension,
and sometimes a kiss is just a kiss.

There’s no point to this.

The saddest part is I could see us growing old,
but you’re indecisive and all you say is “I don’t know.”
My mother said: “When you see the one, you will know.”
It’s hard to think,
that I’ve been wrong for three years and I will always be alone.
Be alone.

You are conscious of the damage that can come from just one kiss.
Well you are lonely, and I am selfish,
and sometimes a kiss is meaningless.

I’m so over this.
Track Name: Slug
I’m a waste,
no hope for me.
Nothing that you say will make me happy.
I’m jaded, and I’m lazy.
If you knew what was best,
you’d stay the fuck away from me.

Because life has a way of short changing me.
Don’t want to be jealous,

I want to feel free.

But, if you would jump
I swear that I’d jump to.

You can call me crazy,
I thought I loved you.
But I don’t love you,
when you won’t love me.
To me you were my world,

I was your hobby.
When you’d get bored,
or drunk and call me.
You never liked me- just the songs I sing.

As long as you’re happy with erasing me.
I’m so jealous,
and you just don’t like me.

But, if you would jump
I swear that I would jump too.
I know I’m fucking crazy to think I love you.
When I don’t love you,
cause I don’t mean a thing.
And you never liked me- just the songs I sing.


Just the songs I sing.
