Track Name: ANNIE
You only look at art to see your own reflection
and it’s hard to talk to you with this fever in my sleep
You only say you love me when you’re lonely
and I’ve never been so all alone and I hope to never be

Annie, oh you cut into my dreams
Annie, oh you know my wake up screams
Annie, oh you’re my nightmare on Elm Street
Annie, oh you could have killed me in my sleep

I watch my phone from my peripheral visions
and in case you write to say anything at all,
There’s a sellout crowd to my unconscious screening
but all left early and screamed for their money back, all right now

Annie, oh you cut into my dreams
Annie, oh you know my wake up screams
Annie, oh you’re my nightmare on Elm Street
Annie, oh you could have killed me in my sleep
Track Name: ZOOKEEPER
I'm a kid with a leash in the zoo
You don't wanna bite me cuz I'm gonna bite you
No amount of therapy could kill me
and I don't want to be be cured if I can't be free

No saints in the animal kingdom
and no saints for me

Lions, tigers, and bears oh my!
Pearly white claws and fangs
They tear through flesh and bone, through flesh and bone
Mama asked if I was raised by wolves and the answer is sadly no
cuz I'm not free

No Gods in the animal kingdom
and no Gods for me.
Track Name: NO HITTER
You were three coats of paint ago
You were a heartbeat in my ghost
When you left, you said you'd go
I painted over everything I owned
I didn't feel like dying alone

There ain't no crying in Petite League, no
It's a perfect game, no hitter boys
1, 2, 3 and I'll go down swinging
It's the only way to end a winning season
It's the only way to end a winning season
It's the only way I'll end a winning season

I used to make fun of you praying
Looking up with nothing to say
Now I write lists of what keeps me happy
and I keep throwing them away
I keep throwing them away

There ain't no crying in Petite League, no
It's a perfect game, no hitter boys
1, 2, 3 and I'll go down swinging
It's the only way to end a winning season
It's the only way to end a winning season
It's the only way I'll end a winning season
Track Name: TYLENOL
Now I see you in morning light
You look better than last night
In my t-shirt, in my bed
Just close your eye, I'll close the blinds
and we can sleep till 9 or 10
Until the hangover kicks in
and I'll wake you with a glass of water - dehydrated
Do you want cereal or butter on toast?
Do you want tylenol or do you want to smoke?
I got both

Am I still charming on Sunday morning?
Bedhead hair and bloodshot eyes
Am I still charming on Sunday morning?
A messy room and the temperature on low

Cheap beer and a bouquet of flowers
I could've fallen asleep in this snowbank for hours
I woke up warm and not alone in my little old room in the Scarier Dome
Oh, it's all so scary and dumb, so scary it's fun
like Tylenol mixed in rum
If there ain't no headache, it wasn't fun
If there ain't no rain, then there ain't no sun

Am I still charming on Sunday morning?
Bedhead hair and bloodshot eyes
Am I still charming on Sunday morning?
A messy room and the temperature on low
Track Name: RASPBERRY SEEDS
Raspberry seeds, stuck in between your baby teeth
Blueberry juice, staining your tulip cheeks
Baby’s first steps, holding on to my two legs
and I was only 21, your mother was only 18

And I’m trying, trying harder than I’ve tried before
oh baby, I’m trying. Trying harder than I’ve tried before


Down with the training wheels, this family learns by scraping their knees
You have your mother’s eyes but your face looks a lot like mine
We only take video of memories
Your mother is 21, and I turned 25 today


And I’m trying, trying harder than I’ve tried before
oh baby, I’m trying. Trying harder than I’ve tried before
Oh baby, i’m trying. Trying harder than I’ve tried before
Track Name: THE VOICEMAIL
Yo, you are out of your damn mind if you think I’m just going to put that information out there. You can not just ask me for my work information, my email address, my regular address, my phone number. You can not just ask me these things and expect to receive them. So I, I hope that you stop. I hope your sake that you stop. Because you do not want to keep doing this. I will tell you that right now, you do not want to go down this road. Okay? bye.
Track Name: DOWN THAT ROAD
I fell in love the morning you left me
Your side of the bed still warm and the drawers freshly emptied
Oh, you were so sweet, you could have calmed a storm in your sleep
Oh, you were so good, but I loved you more I should
but I’m going down that road

I know it’s not alright to get over love overnight
and I know it’s not okay to be breaking hearts this way

You broke a year later in my new bedroom
I sat with my head in my hands and you said you “better head home soon”
Ain’t nothing I cried for more than nothing, oh nothing
Ain’t no one I cried for more than no one, oh no one
and maybe I fall in love with the same thing in everyone
but maybe it’s just better to have nothing with no one


I know it’s not alright to get over love overnight
and I know it’s not okay to be breaking hearts this way
Track Name: FRENCH NEW YORK
I’ve got French friends in New York
They don’t have subway cards but they make it work
Non, non, ne t'inquiète pas Ce soir tu peux rester chez moi”
I fell asleep in the neon glow
I use my bag as my pillow
I thought of ways I could make it work
I thought of how I could let it go

Never, never, never all alone again
When the sun comes out, you’ll have your shadow friends
Speaking English in my French head again
New New York is the new Paris, let’s pretend

I’ve still got French friends in New York
dusty floors and last night’s smoke all in my hair and in my clothes
Oh, French New York you’re just like home
City lights and friends of friends
I’ll crash on couches till the end
My thoughts still wander when my feet are sore
Sometimes lost, but always at your door


Never, never, never all alone again
When the sun comes out, you’ll have your shadow friends
Speaking English in my French head again
New New York is the new Paris, let’s pretend
Track Name: HICCUPS (feat. JAMIE BROOKS)
64 crayons in a box and I don’t know what I’d do if any one of them broke
But you were my favorite color. You were my favorite color
I watch a lot of basketball, you never want your team to lose
but I’d miss a buzzer beater,
I’d do it for you, I’d do it for you

Maybe nothing was worth it in the end, or so it seems cuz…

Hiccups stuck in my throat, I could die if you wanted me to
Oceans between us, please know that I’m not trying to hurt you
Drinks down, call back, open up to me
shape up, grow up, I need some time to think
Hiccups stuck in my throat, I wish I knew how to breathe without you

Flowers came out in February, and the birds came back in March
but you were my favorite sweater, you were my favorite sweater
I might not be the smartest man, superstitious and nervous
but you were my luck number, you were my lucky number

Maybe nothing was worth it in the end, or so it seems cuz…

Hiccups stuck in my throat, I could die if you wanted me to
Oceans between us, please know that I’m not trying to hurt you
Drinks down, call back, open up to me
shape up, grow up, I need some time to think
Hiccups stuck in my throat, I wish I knew how to breathe without you
Track Name: I MET YOU BEFORE
Never wake up if you know how to dream
Never hold on to anything that can leave
I met you before I knew how to leave
I loved you before I knew how to breathe
I got tattoos before I knew what permanent would mean
No one yells at you if you got scars on your sleeve
I met you before I knew how to leave
I loved you before I knew how to breathe
I taught myself to whistle
They said if singing don’t work, this will
I met you before I knew how to leave
I loved you before I knew how to breathe
Track Name: GUETTA (bonus)
David Guetta don’t get us
David Guetta don’t care
David Guetta don’t get us
David Guetta don’t care

What if I don’t wanna dance?
What happens when the drugs wear off?
Am I gonna see you when the neon is out?

DavidGuettaDavidGuettaDavidGuettaDavidGuettaDavidGuetta

David Guetta don’t get us
David Guetta don’t care
David Guetta don’t get us
David Guetta don’t care
David Guetta don’t get us
David Guetta don’t care

Wait, wait, wait. What’s he gonna do?
Oh, I misplaced my dancing shoes
I’m a young millennial. I’m a young professional.

David Guetta don’t get us
David Guetta don’t care
David Guetta don’t get us
David Guetta don’t care
David Guetta don’t get us
David Guetta don’t care
