Track Name: DIY Sunshine
Chewed nails and cat puke are some of my problems
I wish that they were the only ones that I knew of
I heard about some spiteful foursome, is that a thing?
It's true what they say, you kids do the craziest things

Casey says these are real things that people do
Like Will puking in Feed The Scene's bathroom
Or Danny driving us the wrong way
Or us blowing our PA in RVA

And I can't relate to your blackout nights
And I can't relate to your petty fights
I just need five more dollars to get to the next place
I just need your band to play with us so we can relate

But we won't relate
We're just some DIY dudes from the sunshine state
Track Name: Suffer Sober
I wanna play jazz chords and go to college with Stephen
I want to find the things that give my life meaning
But I don't know, cause that's too much to know
But I know enough, enough to not know

I wanna go skateboard, land all of the kickflips and all the hardflips
I wanna learn more tricks so I can impress some chicks that I don't know
Cause the media wants me to know
That I should have has much sex and drugs as I can have

I'd rather suffer sober than pretend I'm above this
I'm not telling you to quit, just maybe scale it back a bit

Congratulations your party was a hit
It's too bad no one can remember it
You gave out chemicals that dulled every single sense

Congratulations your party was a hit
It's too bad no one can remember it
You gave out chemicals that dulled every single sense
You're such a hit
Track Name: Put Me Out
Sick of choking on the forced fed air
Sick of being told that I should care
About people's feelings, people's misdealings everywhere
Sick of being told that I should care
Put me out

I'm sorry man that escalated quick
I'm just an old recovering jaded dick
Who's not used to keeping his mouth shut everyday
Who's not used to keeping what he wants to say
In his head

So if this is my life sentence
At least I took the choice to never quit
Track Name: 19 Years
So they say my brain shrinks every time I look at a screen
I think they're probably right
Cause every time I look at that screen I feel stupid all the time

I wanna shake like shakey
I wanna say anything
I wanna be into it and over it
I wanna be living decent

Well hey, I'm living an adult life without home field advantage
and I'm feeling like a homeless rip current

Let's conquer the buckman and speed on blanding
Let's do Chinese fire drills at 2am when I can't handle it
You know I can't

I wanna shake like shakey
I wanna say anything
I wanna be into it and over it
I wanna be living decent
Track Name: Bed Rest
If I were an eggshell, I'd take a couple swings
Just to learn the difference between what I want and need

Won't you take a couple swings?
A couple swings at me
Cause lord knows that's what we both need
What I need

I started leaving the house less, started staying in my head more
I'm on permanent bed rest the real me is trapped in the floorboards

I'm not a fan of marvel or DC
What kind of dark-horse does that make me?

I'm not a hipster man, it's just one of my things
Isn't everyone entitled to a couple things?

I started leaving the house less, started staying in my head more
I'm on permananent bed rest the real me is trapped in the floorboards

I want to be a good human and I need your help to do it

I started leaving the house more, started staying in my head less
I want to be a good human and try my best
Track Name: Clean Up
Clean your apartment, I'd probably start with the carpet
Every stain in here shows the part when you weren't cool, calm and collected yeah.

Keep living with your filth, I'm only here for the night
The towels piling up in your bathroom is alright
I only need one that's dry

If that's too harsh then, it's time to move on to the kitchen
These counters could use a good cleaning and then we'll talk about how the sink should be dealt with

I think we should have a talk
The sink shouldn't be this clogged up
Is this a metaphor on how you're livin' or do I always need to find something to clean?

Is it worth it to clean something that is deserving
If "deserving" is in the name that confirms it
That this song is about you and not about me
Track Name: Life's Skin
I don't care where we sleep as long as we get sleep
And Casey's getting laid twelve nights a week

My skin ain't as thick as life's skin
My skin isn't as thick as life's skin

My skin ain't as thick as life's skin
I'm thin and I'm stuck worrying about where I should've been

And I pine and I grind for what oh?
For what everyone seems to be handed free of charge

My skin ain't as thick as life's skin
I'm thin and I'm stuck worrying about where I should've been
And if there's a price I gotta pay for everyone to get their said heard
I'm ready to pay
Track Name: Jessie's Song
Jessie's got a choice it's right or left
Republican, democrat
But at least he's got a choice to make
On how or when we relate

Show your hand, what's your plan?
When it comes to thinking ahead

Hey Kenny my buddy, how goes it my friend?
I heard it's going well, ain't that so swell
I heard it's going well

Some advice for what it's worth
Take your scene and shove it up your ass
Track Name: Life With No Tutorial
Life with no tutorial, I've grown critical on everything that makes me indivisible and I'm divisible.

I think I messed up, I think I made the wrong choice

Said there's gonna be more money
Said I'll get to see my honey
These nine to fives make me want to die make me want to cry
I just wanna get home on time

I think I messed up, I think I made the wrong choice

Now I've got this pile of money
Now I get to see my honey and there's a voice in the back of my head asking me
Am I done?
I'm not done

Yeah I don't need the money
I just need to see my honey
I'm not done, I'll never be done, I'm not done

Life with no tutorial
