ANNIE 02:18
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

ZOOKEEPER 02:39
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.

NO HITTER 03:04
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

TYLENOL 02:29
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

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

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.

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

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

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

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
