Track Name: Pursuit of Content
You take everything for granted,
that's what she said to me.
And as it turns out she was incredibly accurate
because all my friends they graduated last year.
And now I'm stuck here.

Now I have nobody to stand and watch as I fall.
Nobody catches me.
Nobody catches me at all.

And I'm alright, just alright.

All my shattered hopes and dreams,
they fall like glass in front of me.
These days turn into weeks
and I'm standing here. What's to come of me?
It's like my happiness packed up and ran away from me.
So now I embark on,
the pursuit of content.
Track Name: I'm Not a Fan of Global Warming
Well my conscience keeps me up at night,
and I'm scared to death, ya I'm petrified,
about every decision that could affect my life.
I've been waking up at 1 pm,
still no job and still no girlfriend,
all these shitty things that just won't go away.

It's too cliche to say
that I want to stay my age
for the rest of my existence
because I don't want to grow up to miss this.
It's too cliche to say
I don't know what I've got til it's gone.
But still no friends and lack of money keeps me moving on.

Seems like it hasn't snowed here in about two years,
it's like the weather's trying to tell me something that I just can't hear.
The radio's on and it's playing all these songs
and I just can't find the words to sing along.
Maybe you were right for me,
but I wasn't right for this.
I guess timing comes with change,
so it's time to get over it.

It's too cliche to say
that I want to stay my age
for the rest of my existence
because I don't want to grow up to miss this.
It's too cliche to say
I don't know what I've got til it's gone.
But still no friends and lack of money keeps me moving on.
They keep me moving on.

I'm done loosing on this.
They keep me moving on.

It's too cliche to say
that I want to stay my age
for the rest of my existence
because I don't want to grow up to miss this.
It's too cliche to say
I don't know what I've got til it's gone.
But still no friends and lack of money keeps me moving on.
They keep me moving on.
They keep me moving.
Track Name: Believe Me, It Makes Perfect Sense
Oh my god, we get it you're a douche bag.
You're never going to grow up,
you're never going to get there.
Nothing changes, just a matter of point of view.
You're still the same kid
that I never got used to.
Doing the same shit
to kids who weren't as cool as you.
This is perfect,
the kind of week that makes you feel like you're worthless.
I wish some things were real.
I'm either driving off a cliff or going 88 miles an hour,
trying to skip over time.
Flux capacitor.

I'll never make it to the weekend,
good thing summer's on it's way,
well I hope it's here to stay.

It's getting harder and harder to wake up before noon,
because I slept through any feelings of remorse or self-pity.
Trying to find the urge to call in sick.
Well some days I just feel like it.
I've found out that I'm just, kinda, sorta nauseous,
but the anxiety I feel is slightly overwhelming.
Do to my loss of sleep I
try not to open my eyes.
Make believe that I'm not still up at sunrise.

I'll never make it to the weekend,
good thing summer's on it's way,
well I hope it's here to stay.
Track Name: Lights Out
The remnants of my youth
are wasted in front of me.
It's time to make my move,
because that just isn't me.
No matter what I do
I always told myself,
No matter what I do,
I'll do it without you.

Lights out, lights out
Told ya when then lights were out and everyone was calling for you,
maybe it's too late for me to be with you.

Woah, I'm ready to go.
I'm ready to fall asleep alone.
Woah, I'm not going to lower myself to your new lows.

Lights out, lights out
Darline when then lights were out and everyone was calling for you,
maybe it's too late for me to be with you.

Maybe I'm the only one around here,
who's ever had enough.
Maybe I'm the only one around here,
who's ever given up.

Lights out, lights out
Darling when then lights were out and everyone was calling for you,
maybe it's too late for me to be with you.
