Track Name: OCEAN HONEY
I breathe with air so heavy
and I keep my hands from trembling for you.

I taste honey In the ocean blue
It was probably you.
Track Name: SURVIVING OCTOBER
I don't want to taste your summer cum
and you don't want to taste mine
I don't think I've ever loved anyone
but she never let me call her mine
you never let me call you mine

I remember details of your living room
You remember skinny sea dippin'
I don't give a fuck about anyone
but she never let me call her mine
you never let me call you mine

Give me a reason
Take me to rehab
I lost my ticket and my head at the bottom of hell
You're the best and worst I've ever had

I can peel an orange in one whole piece
I can leave a fight in two
You've never been in love with you so you don't know what I'm going through.
You don't know what I'm going through

Give me a reason
Take me to rehab
I lost my ticket and my head at the bottom of hell
You're the best and worst I've ever had
Track Name: LITTLE FOURTH OF JULY
I call you Little Fourth of July
A broken cloudy day still lights up the sky
I bled out of the tiger's mouth
When I was 17, when I was 17

I love you like a wasp loves honey
Sell my soul for some of that Young Money
I love you like an upstate winter
Makes my word go from sweet to bitter

I've seen the world spin
I've seen the suburban sin
I wrote about growing pains through a Sparkling youth
When I was 17, when I was 17.

I love you like a wasp loves honey
Sell my soul for some of that Young Money
I love you like an upstate winter
Makes my word go from sweet to bitter
Track Name: KANYAKUMARI
I'll meet you for the first time again
Three oceans collide like old friends
Elephant memories in your skin
Sell a bottle of beer and keep it within

Now I'm off to see if you were the last hope for me
You were lost in Kanyakumari
while i was stuck in New York City
Oh, you can write me from a roof of a hospital
Indian sun's beating down on ya
Winter takes the life out of me
while you were lost in Kanyakumari

Thought I'd write home for the last time again
Five o'clock shadow and a new girlfriend
What about you, what are you up to now?
The roots of my skin, they're still there and loud
I could have done better with you
I could have done better, oh I could have done better with you

Now I'm off to see if you were the last hope for me
You were lost in Kanyakumari
while i was stuck in New York City
Oh, you can write me from a roof of a hospital
Indian sun's beating down on ya
Winter takes the life out of me
while you were lost in Kanyakumari
Track Name: MY BLACK LUNGS
I fell for you and you know it
A crooked tooth and a light denim jacket
You inherited from your mother's father
From my head to my toes, don't wanna live without her

Come home oh I'm still so drunk
Fall asleep with all the lights on
Pull her in, hold on, don't draw back
I don't care if she makes my lungs black

Once the wound heals, then you feel the pain
Of a love life going down the drain
Even during a blood moon, the sun will shine
She's an artist but she needs more time

Come home oh I'm still so drunk
Fall asleep with all the lights on
Pull her in, hold on, don't draw back
I don't care if she makes my lungs black
Track Name: NOT ALWAYS HAPPY
I wrote a book about you in my phone
I used my words and not my tongue
Cuz it gets sharp and you know best, and you know best
I'm not angry, oh I swear, I'm just upset

I love the woes she left me
They remind me I'm not always supposed to be happy
I love the way she left me
It reminds me I'm not always supposed to be happy
I love the woes she left me
They remind me I'm not always supposed to be happy
I love the way she left me
It reminds me

I held your hand up to my chest
Teary-eyed I said "I'm scared to death"
Of my body, of my soul, of where I'm going, what do I know?

The sand in my bed oh it stays for days
and word of my mother I lost my way
and I'm on my own

I love the woes she left me
They remind me I'm not always supposed to be happy
I love the way she left me
It reminds me I'm not always supposed to be happy
I love the woes she left me
They remind me I'm not always supposed to be happy
I love the way she left me
It reminds me
Track Name: TWO FLAGS
I'm just looking for a bed for a dreamer
I'm just the sins left in a savior
I'm just a zephyr floating to the west
I'm just a heartless bastard like the rest

I'll pack my bags, oh yeah
I'll cut my hair, oh yeah
I'll say goodbye to your girl
Before I set fire to the world

I'll cut my hair, oh mom, I swear
I'll pack my bags with my two flags

Maybe I'm looking for warmth in a cold world
Maybe I'm looking for a love that will erase her
I'm just holding on to the road under my feet
In the hopes I find something, something close to me

I'll pack my bags, oh yeah
I'll cut my hair, oh yeah
I'll say goodbye to your girl
Before I set fire to the world
Track Name: HALLOWEEN IN HOLLYWOOD
Maybe in Santa Monica, I'd be happy to be dead
Make sure you tell my mama I tried my best
Maybe in Culver City, I'd be happier there
but probably not
probably not

I am the ghost in your photograph
I am the UFO, spacecraft
It's Halloween in Hollywood
Halloween in Hollywood

We play just stand there in front of the California waves
Drowning don't sound to good now but man, just you wait
Maybe in the pacific, I could finally feel fantastic
Maybe in Los Feliz, I could regain some feeling
but probably not
probably not

I am the ghost in your photograph
I am the UFO, spacecraft
It's Halloween in Hollywood
Halloween in Hollywood
Track Name: LEAF SURFER
Noticed how you roll em baby
You must not be from around here
Practice driving in your car
In funeral home parking lots

Wanna be a leaf surfer baby
Can you teach me how?
Wanna be an internet surfer
Can you teach me how?
Wanna be a leaf surfer baby
Can you teach me how?
Wanna be an internet surfer
Can you teach me how?

In your backyard practicing karate
In your front seat ain't no Bugatti
Do they have the same swears on the West coast?
Do they have the same swears in Europe?

Wanna be a leaf surfer baby
Can you teach me how?
Wanna be an internet surfer
Can you teach me how?
Wanna be a leaf surfer baby
Can you teach me how?
Wanna be an internet surfer
Can you teach me how?
Wanna be a little league slugger
Can you teach my how?
Wanna be Petite League MVP
Can you teach me how?
Track Name: DIBS, HAWAII.
I just wanna be your internet surfer boyfriend
I just wanna be your Hawaiian Vampire friend

It's alright if you say no, I didn't call dibs, I didn't know
It's alright if you say no, I didn't call dibs, I didn't know

I wish I could have misspelled words in the right way for you
I wish I had enjoyed the songs that I found so unpleasant

No we weren't all born in Brooklyn, I was raised another way
No we weren't all born in Brooklyn and I don't care about LA.
