Track Name: Okeechobee
We all mess up.
I fucked up.
I fucked up this time.

Okeechobee, Florida, I miss you so.
We passed through Lorida bout an hour ago.
Me and Josh in shotgun with Say Anything songs.
And I know if you were here, you'd be singing along.

We crossed the state line,
and found ourselves in Georgia.
I missed my Mom's birthday down in South Florida.
Zack felt like shit but we do what we can.
I wish we never even fuckin' left the van, but we did.

Okeechobee, Florida, I miss you so.
We passed through Lorida bout an hour ago.
Me and Josh in shotgun with Say Anything songs.
And I know if you were here, you'd be singing along.
Track Name: Tire Swing
watch that tongue,
before it falls out,
you seem so much brighter than i could imagine.
found what i was looking for.

i'm looking for answers,
that can free me from wondering,
what i even came here for,

watch your heart
before he goes and rips it out
it hurts me to wonder why can't seem stick up for yourself

i'm looking for closure
because i can't seem to fathom
what the fuck would have happened
if i didn't stop this now.
Track Name: This Song Is About A Girl (That I've Never Met)
She had blue eyes,
that would make you fall in love.
There was two guys,
searching for her attention.
I can't blame her,
for not even looking in my direction.
Can't blame her for not knowing I exist.

Damn I'm lost again.

She had brown hair,
and it hardly reached her shoulder blades.
And you stood there,
with that adorable smile and laugh.
I should've said it.
I don't even know your name,
but I would like to,
if you would give me a chance.

So hey girl what's your name?
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: You're Not Punk, And I'm Telling Everyone
You're the scum of the earth,
the bottom of the barrel.
I thought you'd be over this by now.
You play all your games yet you sound so fucking lame.
I just wish they'd all forget your name.

And you can try to act so cool,
but I know what you've been up to
and I,
hate that you think you can fuck all my friends,
and just leave them all for dead.
You get what you want then you peace the fuck out,
I just wish that you'd drop dead.

And you can try to act so punk,
but I know you've been pushing your luck.

One day, you'll get what you deserve.
You'll find someone you truly love and she'll kick your ass to the curb.
Track Name: Call It Quits
Spat out on a nieghbors old front lawn.
I was cast out,
so I could learn things on my own.
I'd keep my voice down,
but you can't wake up someone who isn't sleeping.
Are you here now?
Because I just wanna ask you a question.

Won't you call it quits?
With all the alcohol and smoking bullshit.
It's time to grow up.
and get the fuck out of Mom's apartment.
You've got a child in your hands.
It's time to act like you, give a damn,
you've got a child in your hands.
It's time to act like that made you any different.

Put your hands down.
Because hitting anyone doesn't make you a man.
You yell so loud,
you woke up your sleeping child.
Inhale the smoke down.
As you try to fix your life with a temporary high,
are you bored now?
As you move on to bigger and better things.

Won't you call it quits?
With all the irresponsibility bullshit.
It's time to man up.
cause you created this life you live in.
You've got a child in your hands.
It's time to act like you, give a damn,
you've got a child in your hands.
It's time to act like that made you any different.
Track Name: (Broken Hearts Beat Just Fine)
Instrumental
Track Name: As Long As The Sun Is Up
I woke up in a sweat with my arms both asleep,
and I feel like I'm breaking down.
It gets kinda hard but it beats being home,
yeah I can't wait till we leave town.
18 shows in 18 days, I hope I never miss your face.
Cause the last thing I need is apologies on computer screens,
while I am far away.

It's not my fault,
that everything we fell in love with is now falling apart.

But if you're not listening,
than I don't want to be singing.
And if you're not here with me.
I don't see the point in existing.
Again.

Woke up in the van with my phone on the floor,
and I feel like I'm meant for this.
It gets kinda hard but the shows are enough and
I'm working really hard at this.
18 shows in 18 days,
I really fucking miss your face,
but that last thing I need is apologies on a computer screen,
While I am still far away.

It's not my fault,
that everything we fell in love with is now falling apart.
It's all my fault.
that everything we fell in love with is now falling apart.

But if you're not listening,
than I don't want to be singing.
And if you're not here with me.
I don't see the point in existing.
Again.
Track Name: Christmas Eve (Now & Then)
Christmas eve doesn't mean shit to me,
not since last new years.
We were drunk,
and our lips they touched.
For the first and last time.

Not to mention this is the last time,
That I could look myself dead in the eyes,
and have someone miss me.
No one will kiss me and no one will miss me next new years either.
So why even bother.

David's had a headache for just over three days now,
I cannot seem to help him.
He stayed and watched tv and tried to fall asleep so we went out and bought him chinese.

This is the first time in a long time,
that I could look someone dead in the eye.
No one will miss me and no one will kiss me,
next new years either.
So why even bother?
Track Name: You Knew This Would Happen
I've gotten bitter,
but you're not better.
Haven't felt the same since last winter,
when we'd exclude ourselves,
and lay out on the floor.

I hung my shirt up next to your sweater,
and I thought how I just felt better,
when I was exhaling smoke,
and standing in the cold.

And it's not that easy,
(i can't remember the last time,
that I looked into your eyes,
and thought how perfect we could be)
Looking back, on times we spent.
All this time.
Wasted, replaced with, your spite of me.
Track Name: Eleven, Eleven
I'm sick of sleeping in,
and losing all my friends to substances.
And I'd call you up if I thought you gave a shit.

Harsh words exit your mouth.
I'd flip myself upside down and turn myself inside out.
Just for you, like I do.

I will surely fuck this up,
then we'll both end up feeling stuck.
Since I wasted all my lucky stars on you.
Then you will not answer the phone,
and I will toss and turn alone.
Since I wasted all my lucky stars on you.

La da da da da.
Fuck you, now I'm done.
