Track Name: 3 CHORDS
You beat your brains
you say you're so original
you try so hard say you're gonna go mental
you say you're so post-punk pop rock clever kid hip hop
well

you're 3 chords and a four on the floor
you're 3 chords and a four on the floor
never been so
never been so bored
never been so
never been so bored.

you stake your claim
say you're so original
say you 'don't play the scene' but it sounds like it to me
you say you're so folk pop indie rock clever kid hip hop
well

(chorus)
Track Name: HELLO, MEET MY PROBLEMS
Hello meet my window
the pain is obvious
it's written on his face
hello meet my problems
they might look small
but they take a lot of space
hello meet my faucet
it runs hot and cold
just like you and me
hello meet my lonely
it might not be around
but there's more than can be seen
hello meet my closet
no skeletons
but a suit and tie i wear
hello meet my problems
i might look aloof
but i'm freaking out in here
Track Name: DEPARTURE/ARRIVAL
It was the bluest sky
that I had ever seen
the scenery passed by
like on a movie screen

4 am departure time
leaving my fair city behind
just to see you
10pm arrival time
dragging my best friend behind
4am departure time
leaving my fair city behind

It was the shortest week
that I have ever spent
7 days they streaked
our time came and went

(chorus)
Track Name: FISH
The smell of sweat in my bed
An aching throbbing head
Drunken bottles scattered
Her dress torn and tattered

Maybe she
washed away
Before I say I do
Maybe she
washed away…

This glass of whiskey sours
paid for with the hours
That I spent wondering
getting to the heart of the matter

(chorus)
Track Name: SUDDENLY
suddenly
the harmony changed to a melody
inherently
you should have left so quietly
not carved in stone
but deaf and dumb
not carved in stone
but etched on your bones

suddenly
those wounds are a memory
inherently
that all goes ahead of me

i can feel you
your hands under my skin
turning me out
turning me out
turning me out
turning me out
from within

(repeat all)
Track Name: TAKE
Take another drink
take another drag
take another beer
from your little plastic bag
take another listen
take another look
take another photo
for your coffee table book

we can build a bridge
you can burn it down
all that i ask is for you to stick around
we can plant a house
we can build a tree
all that i ask is for you not to leave

take another trip
take me for a ride
prove it to ourselves
that we're all still alive
take another listen
tell another lie
trying to forget
that we're all going to die

(chorus)
Track Name: INTELLECTUAL GRAFFITTI
crawled out
of the basement
please meet
the replacements
come in
to opinion
god said
we were waiting

crawled out
of the basement
please meet
the replacements
carved in
you were weightless
calm down
you replaced it

intellectual graffiti
but who has time to read it?
Track Name: KEY OF J
She said don't fuck girls
where the son don't shine
I should say up the ass
it's what she said at the time
and i said no i won't
because i never desired
to do a thing like that
to someone i admire

that's not quite how it happened
almost a decade ago now
that's not quite how it happened
almost a decade ago now
i'll take my version of that day
remembering all our love

she said marry me
i been waiting so long
for you to ask
so i made up my mind
and i said marry you?
yeah we'll tell all our friends
that you asked me
and of course i said yes

that's not quite how it happened
6 years ago now
that's not quite how it happened
6 years ago now

she said i'm pregnant
and i don't know what to do
so i held her hand
said we'll make it through
i screamed holy shit
when we saw it was twins
so we held hands
said we'll live through this

that's not quite how it happened
2 years ago now
that's not quite how it happened
2 years ago now
Track Name: FREQUENCY
Hum of electric wire
vibrate that frequency
i'm on the other side
won't you connect with me?

smoke from your fingertips
i'm in disguise
you know my face and name
want you to realize.

your voice on the telephone
your face on TV
i'm on the other side
won't you connect with me?

what are you trying to say?
what are you trying to say
what are you trying to say
what are you
what are you
what are you…
