Track Name: It's All The Same
I'll be back again
I was tied up
sidetracked all day
and left my things misplaced

it's all the same
night and day
sleep can wait
dream awake

water in the mug
your old bed, you made love
you broke that cup
I don't the time
man it's all the same

sorry it's for the best
if I don't get along well
are you gonna give me hell
I was a shy kid
I was a shy kid

sorry it's for the best
if I don't get along well
are you gonna give me hell
I was a shy kid
I was a shy kid
Track Name: I'm Not A Shark!
feel the calm
days to fall
you gave it all

and quit my job
can't put it off
cracks in the sidewalk
they're hiding sharks

wonder where I've been
hiding within
so much to do endless
climb up into
the abyss and listen

to all your hearts
mountains apart
I'm not a shark
ocean in the dark

feel the calm
days off
you gave it all

I can't pretend
to do something
I don't recommend
turn me away

all my days again
you'll eat my dust
in the deep blue sea
return to the
coral I knew

to all your hearts
mountains apart
I'm not a shark
ocean in the dark

I'm on the mend
from a branch that bends
Track Name: It's Gonna Be A Radio Day
really don't want to work today
you know I'm the one that always shows up anyway
even on a Sunday

I would use up all the hours
on making a record all alone
I have a fifteen minute drive ahead
there's always fifteen minutes 'til I gotta leave anyway

oh no, too bad
someone shoved seven cd's into the six cd changer

It's gonna be a radio day
It's gonna be a radio day

and the songs I haven't made yet
will be in my head at work
and the honey I haven't even kissed yet
will be haunting my head 'til bed

where I sit up 'til 3 writing more
oh yeah, work can be a drag
and we live too far from our brothers and sisters
gotta change the tires, rewire, and pay my bills

oh yeah, if you guys
hear that I quit
I'll be up even later at night
writing

and my days will be radio days
all my days are radio days
Track Name: Family Ties
waiting after the fight
you light up my room in the night
when you walk in
as a child
when I was a child
waiting for the next escape

this is how
I avoided waking up
thinking I was dead meat
a little love
there's no other way to be
you said for the last time

give all your fears to me now
put on your boots come outside
I wanna play with you
wanna play with you
watch the clouds with you
watch the stars with you
feel the tall grass with you
avoid the family inside
and all the ties

I was just like
a lonely train chugging along
in that old western film
as a child
when I was a child
introvert, where's the next escape

at our table
we avoided talking up
across the chairs at dinner time
this is how we dine
awkward and silent for the last five years
another failed suburban dream

change all your ideals now
put on your boots come outside
I wanna play with you
I wanna show you something
sometimes what we think we want
is not what we really want
just taking it easy with you
avoid the family inside
and all the ties
for a moment in time
Track Name: Driving With Slavoj
driving in my car
with slavoj
up the 401
what are the chances
'til I run out of gas
I just wanted to go
not think about it much

and the car will break down
what a let down it will be
but I think I will be happy
not showing up to the door

what was I doing there anyway

I think it's about time
I quit the talking
got a lot of plans in mind
put something at risk
hanging out downstairs
laying back in the chair
making something worthwhile

and I'm sure I'll break down
what a let down it will be
but I think I will be happy
not showing up to the door

what was I doing there anyway

you said
take all the time that you need
I'm gonna be fine
I gotta
play all the games that I keep close to my heart and mind

you said
take all the time that you need
I'm gonna be fine
I gotta
play all the games that I keep close to my heart and mind
Track Name: Working Hard
I've got to say
friend of mine
it's awkward sometimes
we like the same girls
I've gotta say to your guys
it's hard sometimes

trying not to offend
there's something I've gotta do
on my own

ever since I was young
I was always a lonely gun
when it comes to these kind of things
I still love you but I need space

I've got to tell my boss
gonna take time off
I haven't been there in a while
snowed in lovingly
I've gotta lake in my mind
where I go all the time
trying not to offend
I'm gonna be there a while
this time

in and out of the hospital
for something stupid but painful
I am going to extend the excuse
so I can write more songs

my vocation is not the problem
so why do I feel guilty
right now this room is getting small
everyone knows as everyone does
everyone knows as everyone does
Track Name: Drop Of The Dime
it's been such a long time
getting used to myself out here
the job that I have is a thoughtless mind
while mine wanders on by

there are no more walls
drop of the dime
caught in your life
Track Name: Recording Late
feels like I won't go
wait and find how you know
seems like I feel fine
out alone in the world

awake all night
stand up and I feel fine
we go all night
instead of sleeping ever light
I found something that's worth my time

feels like I won't know
every chance I get blows
over time like trees
fall down, cover me with leaves

we go all night
stand up and you'll be fine
we go all night
instead of sleeping ever light
I found something that's worth my time

I didn't care much
for that job anyways
I didn't care much
didn't care much
Track Name: Winter Banal Blues
if I could take all my friends
onto a big bus, I am bad enough
only imagining and nothing else
we only do what we end up doing

and when summer comes around
I just wanna sit outside
with all of you in the grass
eat some good food maybe Thai

dance at night in the goth corner
you're all legends in my mind
sometimes I forget mundane days turn to sad steps
I just need to see some of you
I'm a little far away but I'll be there soon
winter banal blues needs summer tunes
this surely is a weird town

and when summer comes around
I just wanna sit outside
with all of you in the grass
stay 'til the moon and retire

sometimes it takes me too long
to even realize what went wrong
just gotta show up to your house
and say "what's going on"

house down the road caught on fire
neighbours bike down and make friends
I'm just glad no one's hurt
why do we wait 'til the end
Track Name: New Years
spent the new the years alone
spent my last birthday alone
but that's alright
I'm alright
sun waves make me feel warm

don't you worry too much
momma I don't want to make fuss
they're all green
I'm getting better at being a warm orange

people fight, get over it
gotta focus on my own shit
spread my arms to you my friend
cycle passed the lanes and buildings that we knew then

living on the edge of town
can I move back in with you guys
am I allowed to change my lonely habits now

I awake from my slumber
a paid vacation in ideas
parents split
we get kicked
we're all smokers in our minds
sometimes

feel like taking a break
start the new year off right away
unemployed
filled with joy
this time it's gonna be mine
this time it's gonna be mine
this time it's gonna be mine
this time it's gonna be mine
Track Name: DIY Uncertainty
last two weeks of work before
I'm done and free
it's going so slow
but the last two years went by
so fast

imagine all the late night I
spent with records in bed
just want to read my books again
find out how they end

I feel so tired
of every last day
things getting in the way

a river walk alone
gonna keep to my own
someone shouted in a worried tone

waiting for something to happen
standing around that never can be
everything is uncertain
completely

imagine all the late nights I
spent with records in bed
just want to read my books again
not worry in the end

it takes me so long
can't write one simple song
getting hard to continue on

lay my head down in the grass
close my eyes in the wind to that
try to finish and let it go
Track Name: Dancing At Night
the truth must come out
will you watch me now
I'm a dancer
and I admit things that are a little uncomfortable

I'm afraid I got the idea from someone else
but there's to this I swear
I'm beginning to like
dancing at night

I've been learning to say no
I've been learning to say no
