Track Name: Peter Drinklage
Snot nosed, Pop Punk
19 year old with a stupid haircut
addicted to getting stoked and getting dumb

stupid life, bloated heart

how fucking cliche?
so fucking cliche

I try to write one goddamn song about myself
and it'll end up about you.
Track Name: Mike Dexter is an Asshole
i fucking hate jealousy
i hate when boys are jealous of me
i hate when i'm jealous of other guys
I've seen too many relationships and friendships pointlessly destroyed

Sex is not fucking conquest
fuck all your fucking contests
i'd like to fall in love
but fuck all of this

you're just another "cool bro" douche bag in different outfit
Track Name: Coping
days are getting shorter, getting harder to fill in the blanks
stare at my computer waiting for something to change
but the days they stay the same
just traffic lights and running late
every night, end up alone
feeling homesick whenever i get home

practiced in my head a million ways to say to you
the way i feel like shit when you're around
trying hard to convince myself that there's enough
left to still sing about

days are getting shorter, pace around to fill in the blanks
between the plans i made in my head and the way you never
changed, you stayed the same
couldn't get enough so i stayed
fake a smile, stare at the door
wish id never even known

it's the way you looked me in the eyes when you lied
it's the way i still think about you all the time
it's the way you left, i told myself
id never say goodbye
520 miles
a bottle of cheap red wine
doing wonders toward pushing you to the back of my mind
Track Name: Mr. Mom
i wanna be a stay at home dad
i wanna be your Mr. Mom
fuck gender roles i'll cook and clean
and take care of the lawn

i don't wanna go to work
i wanna drop outta school
my folks might call me lazy
but they don't know i'm just in love with you

i wanna be your Mr. Mom
i'll make breakfast if you bring home the bacon
i wanna be your Mr. Mom
oh girl don't be mistaken
i wanna be your Mr. Mom
and there's just one more thing that i need you to do

i'll fucking do the laundry
and decorate the home
in descendents
and operation ivy logos

i'll watch the kids play
hang out all day
while we wait for you to say
"honey i'm home" each and every day

i wanna be your Mr. Mom
i'll make breakfast if you bring home the bacon
i wanna be your Mr. Mom
I'll stay at home, homemakin'
i wanna be your Mr. Mom
and there's just one more thing that i need you to do
Track Name: Shit's Complicated
when yer alone
grab the microphone
and sing woah oh oh oh oh oh oh

when you're in a new place surrounded by no one you know
that depression hits and you're on your own
so you hop online and find the show
and you know you can never be alone

Again!

and maybe
you'll see
that this world ain't so fucking empty

and everything
you need
has been right there where you weren't looking

and maybe
we'll scream
this world ain't so fucking empty

and someone who needs it
will hear it
Track Name: Reflection
hungover morning
with the familiar feeling
that she ain't laying there thinking about me
its the same annoying
rehashed
heartbreak story

but with a stupid haircut
maybe a new tattoo
i'll forget about you
i'll become something new
just a reflection of the kid
who thought you were the one
im giving up on you
doesnt mean im giving up for good

with a new haircut
and another stupid tattoo
i'll forget about you
i'll become something new
just a reflection of that kid
it sucks to fall outta love
but hold tight
there's plenty of time left to run

AWAYYYYYY

i swear i'll fucking run
and hate the days i lost to that fear of tears

drunk smiles and hazy shows and friends with no money
who never let me be alone long are all we need
cause some nights something
in the air reminds me why i believe

that with dumb friends
and dumb songs
and simple chords
and a strong belief in me
we'll get through anything

but with a stupid haircut
maybe a new tattoo
i'll forget about you
i'll become something new
just a reflection of the kid
who thought you were the one
im giving up on you
doesnt mean im giving up for good

with a new haircut
and another stupid tattoo
i'll forget about you
i'll become something new
just a reflection of that kid
it sucks stumble but we run
and hold tight
there's plenty of time left to love
