Track Name: Patterns In The Sand
If you’re done wasting my time
I think I’ll take my turn to speak

I’ve got my pieces. I’ll try to put them back where they belong
I’ve got my thesis on why things turned out so wrong
Stop making patterns in the sand. Someone might think that it’s a sign
That God is flattered by man and things might turn our fine
But you and I know better.

Track Name: Keeping Everyone Happy
I never shave my face cause then I might grow up
No one can take my place with my ex girlfriends

I’ll make them happy
And I’ll keep them happy
Even though I’m gone

Nothing that I do holds my attention
Just going back to school to avoid retention

Hope that makes you happy
Yeah that keeps you happy
Even though I’m gone

Cause change is hard to do
Change is hard to follow through
Change is hard to do
Change is hard to follow through

What makes them happy
Yeah keeps them happy
Even though I’m gone

I hope that makes you happy
I hope that keeps you happy
Even though I’m gone

Track Name: Meadowlark
Hey little meadowlark come here
Hey little meadowlark let me get near you
Hey little meadowlark there’s nothing to fear
Hey little meadowlark let me get near you

We never get older
We only get sadder
We never get bolder
We only get madder

Look up at the moon
Shining golden in the sky
We will be together soon
If we’re not I might die

Track Name: Without You
I don’t think I’ll ever be okay
I don’t think I’ll ever see the light of day
I don’t think I’ll ever know what to say

Without you

I don’t think I’ll ever be the same
I don’t think I’ll ever live up to the family name
I don’t think I’ll ever want to play this game again

Without you

Track Name: Evolution
The most evolved thing a man can do
Is not fight over his mate
Well great
I’m a monkey

The most evolved thing a woman can do
Is not look after her child
Well ‘aint it wild
You’re a spaceman
You’re a physicist
You are useless in this world
You drink you liquor more than a vicar
You get laid more than the girls who get paid to

You need to see we’re trying to help you
You need to see you just can’t help yourself
You need to see the world around you
You need to see a professional

Track Name: Black Cow
I’ve been thinking a lot about emotions
And most of all the ones you lack to show
I’ve been thinking a lot about the commotion
And the mess we made when you decided to go

I’ve been thinking a lot about all the missing persons
And where their photos go when they are found
I’ve been thinking a lot about why you never answered me
And why the hell you were never around

And I’ve decided that I hate you

I hate you

Track Name: Put That In Your Pipe And Smoke It
I’m sorry I can’t go to your party
I know it seems like I don’t care
The truth is I’ve been busy
Growing out and cutting off my hair
And looking in the bathroom mirror
Waiting to be amazed
At the face starring at me
I am a disgrace

Some people tend to be afraid of what they’ll say
So they don’t say anything
And speaking up is one thing I’ve never been afraid of
But lately all I talk about is me

I’ve been spending all my time
Writing an acceptance speech
For the day that I find
All my old dusty record finally reached
Number one in the charts

I’ve been wasting all my time
Planning out a press release
Is that track radio ready?
Did you call the promoter?
Are you gonna get your guarantee?
But if you have to ask does that still mean it’s a guarantee?

Track Name: Building Houses
I never thought I would see that face again
I never thought I would feel your breath on my skin
The last I left you alone in you bedroom
You had an organ of mine in s jar by your bedside

I know we are older now
So why are we no wiser now?

I never thought I would read those eyes again
I never thought we could grow up to be friends
When I am old enough I will build you a house
Of sticks and stones and broken bones I find around your yard

I know we are older now
So why are we no wiser now?
I think you should know I’m planning a trip and I’m going home

I’m going home
We’re all going home

We’re all going home
To rest our heads
To rest our bones

We’re all going home
To tell our tales
And ease our loads

We’re all going home
To rest our heads
To rest our bones
We’re all going home

Track Name: Domestic Partnership
I made a name for you
I made a place for you to the things you do
Don’t go
Don’t go
And throw it all away tonight

I’ve made a bed of roses for you
I’ve made a happy table for two
Don’t go
Don’t go
And leave me here tonight

I’ve made a life for you
I’ve made a life for you
Now don’t go
Don’t go
Don’t go
Don’t go
