Track Name: People Eating People
-Verse-
I don't know where you stand when we coincide
I have feeling you have been broken
In your eyes I see your absent mind
They used to be shrewd

I want my love untaxed
Like the wind the blows through my window
I haven't found that yet
Who waits for the blues

-Chorus-
You often talk a lot about love and it's cruel
On how it should be
I've got opinions too

And you had the nerve to mock me
Man, I'm not that cruel to be the one to
Insult what makes you you

I'll come and go
Forgive my flow
I'm not that bold but that's fine

-Bridge-
An open mind
Was that too much to have asked
You're only dreaming

I'll draw a line
When I am dead and all gone
I'm never leaving

Life moves on keep up
Don't lose light
Forget times that passed
They excite thoughts that keep you blind within plain sight

-Verse II-
Hard times come easy
You've forgotten what you came here for
Simplicity
Oh not a means to an end

Four hearts came
And they will leave all the same
It's a daunting notion
It follows me and rains

-Chorus II-
You often talk a lot about love and it's cruel
On how it should be
I've got opinions too

And you had the nerve to mock me
Man, I'm not that cruel to be the one to
Insult what makes you you

At least we know the hospital won't be your home
Don't need a reason
To be a stupid fool

I'll come and go
Forgive my flow
Track Name: We Will Draw You A Map
-Verse-
If you want it you can get it
We've been taking the long way for far to long
If you want it but you don't get it
We will draw you a map so you won't get lost

If you want it we can get it
We've been taking the long way for far to long
If you want it but you don't get it
We will draw you a map so you won't get lost

-Chorus-
Who has a say if you lose your way
It questions your faith as you try to say grace
It was enough to fake
I guess it was in good fun

-Verse-
You been talking and you sound lost
You've absorbed the hearsay
What you gained and what I lost
I'm not sure it's a bad thing
And through it all we fought out hearts
We were made to self-destruct

-Chorus-
Who has a say if you lose your way
It questions your faith as you try to say grace
It was enough to fake
I guess it was in good fun

-End-
We were seeing signs of wear and tear as we'd go
I had see enough to know that you weren't whole
Side roads you haven't ventured
Makes you wonder
Boy do I know
Haven't got the time to wander off the path that guides you on home
Track Name: Butter Pop
-Verse-
You won't be writing bout us oh no
Did think we'd be so hard to follow
Run hard and it won't be long
Why invest in something you won't get

Oh oh oh no
Your controversy
Oh oh oh no
The way you reason with me

-Pre Chorus-
This love ain't gonna dissipate
Resolve any issues with yourself while you still can

-Chorus-
Repeat repeat the point you've made
I've gone bitter and need to shave
Oh butter pop won't you rescue me

Will you be waiting
Oh no will you return in time

-Verse-
My fair lady
I consider you my break beat
Slightly off, confusing
So in tune when our bodies our bodies move

Oh oh oh no
Your controversy
Oh oh oh no
I apologize deeply

-Pre Chorus-
Life will never go just as planned
Every minutes getting further from the
life you wish you had

-Chorus-
Repeat repeat the point you've made
I've gone bitter and need to shave
Oh butter pop, won't you rescue me

Will you be waiting
Oh no, will you return in time

-Bridge-
A struggling harmony
With makeshift company

If you gone weary, will you still be kind
Bitter and broken but you still have kept your shine
With that said, I will face it

-Chorus-
Repeat repeat the point you've made
I've gone bitter and need to shave
Oh butter pop, won't you rescue me

Will you be waiting
Oh no, will you return in time
Track Name: Bay Bees
-Verse-
Planes are flying low outside the city lights
Children sit by pointing lasers to the sky
I've been hollowed out of old stumps before
Replaced with insides that melted towards the floor

The grass is growing taller than blades can trim
All the Sunday people are looping the same hymns
My family buries burdens that many other leak
And all the while babies cry in their sheets so...

-Chorus-
We won't be talking it out
It's not that easy
Given the opportunity
I'd disagree

We've been waiting around for those repeats
We've been holding out for these lonelier streets

-Verse-
These lenses cover fear and my great lack of tears
I miss my mother's touch
It seems like it's been years
It's been getting colder almost every single summer
These loud screaming cries, I can't help but stutter and

-Chorus-
We won't be talking it out
It's not that easy
Given the opportunity
I'd disagree

We've been waiting around for those repeats
We've been holding out for these lonelier streets

-Bridge-
Talkin too loud, oh on the ride home
Wish I had called you a cab

Let's forget what you said and I'll come home
We'll get over it

We won't be talking it out, it's not that easy
Aren't you tired of making a mends

Let's forget what you said and I'll come home
We'll get over it

-End-
We won't be talking it out
It's not that easy
Track Name: Ron Popeil
-Verse-
You've been missing what you left behind
I'm afraid you know you could reset it
Don't forget you've been wasting time

You have you're lonely art
It's bout time you laid down
And take a load off

Holding on to the tears you fight
You surround yourself with tools that help you write
I will leave nothing to the imagination
You hear me now
I'll speak flat out

-Chorus-
Many miles you haven't walked
But you knew what you knew
Sincerely, would you say you were true

Say what you think before it slips away you won't feel all right
(Do you think like you want to)
Don't think what it seems yo should think cuz it's wrong, you won't sleep at night
(Do you think like your supposed to)

-Verse-
Who's gained a loss
You've been running and I find it cruel
The sensation you've been craving for

Cuz what you see is what you get
A man-child who won't let love live
Coward

-Chorus-
Say what you think before it slips away you won't feel all right
(Do you love like you want to)
Don't think what it seems yo should think cuz it's wrong, you won't sleep at night
(Do you love like your supposed to)

Three times is three times too many
I'm sure there's fourth
My life is always in shambles
Enough's enough

-Bridge-
You have really come down to know your niche
We'll set it and forget the rest
If you could only some how fix the glitch
I'll begin to think you knew too much
Track Name: Broken Old Toys
-Verse-
You were design A long way from home
You journeyed back
And you found something nice on the other side
Of Brown Road

A knock on the door what a stubborn surprise
Isn't funny how live can be so
Deprived of the oxygen you need at night in your bed

-Chorus-
You'll break the news
You wandered far from home
I blame myself
You weren't hard to please
Maybe what you want is me on my knees

It's all that you want, all that you needed
It's dead and gone and I found my peace
It's all that you want not what you needed
That understanding will guide us home

-Verse-
And like the clouds we will surely part
The sun will shine and it brings hope
Just avoid the sunburns my dear

We'll pray for a day when everything’s right
All the cars will crash at night
So everyone can get to work on time

-Chorus-
I'll break the news
You aren't the one
You won't miss me
You'll miss who you thought I was
Hope you found someone you won't read wrong

It's all that you want, all that you needed
You made it seem like it's all the same
And it's all that you want not what you needed
The unexpected has become my home

-End-
This is something we can revisit.
Your heart is dense it can't really feel what's here
We're both a tad insane
I can't be all to blame

You have grown far from lonely
You are now tried and true
Live long, prosper
Good times have found you

It's all that we can do
I know you feel that too
Track Name: Oceanic Schemes
-Verse-
You conceived a notion
You were destined to ways
You were soft spoken
And you forget
You were spoiled then
This room's full and you're at your wits end

Nothing comes easy anymore
You'll find out that mistakes are made
You'll scrimp up a 401k
It'll come with age
It's foreign but safe
There's got to be another way

-Pre Chorus-
Will you be living your dreams when you're old
Or with they be the reason you grow cold

-Chorus-
There's no point in talking about it
You'll be old when you're old
That's life, you can't change it
It's the notion of how life should be that breaks you
Don't you fret
Eventually you'll have no needs

By the ocean
Where you'll forget
The motions
Apart of the day to day

-Verse-
I'll have a day when work is play
It'll be golden
Who acts their age
I'll fake my way through a paycheck
Until I have had enough

Nothing's that easy anymore
It builds up and breaks you down
To the ground level
So you'll refine your sound
So it's aged well and dated
Oh no, maybe you have grow old after all

-Pre Chorus-
Maybe the countryside feels more like home
Oh you're dreaming
You're scheming for a home

-Chorus-
There's no point in talking about it
You be old when you’re old
That's life, you can't change it
It's the motions you take
To get where you been longing for
Longing to finally be free

By the ocean
Where you'll forget
The notion of what life could have been

There's no point in talking about it
You'll be old when you're old
That's life, you can't change it
It's the notion of how life should be
That breaks you
Don't you fret
Eventually you'll have no need to be up in arms
