Track Name: Surrounded By Nerds
Yeah I've got friends
who take whatever this world throws at them
and turn it into something beautiful.
And they do it like breathing,
like it's just the way their bodies are supposed to work.
They turn heartbreak into song,
disaster into opportunity,
and me into who I am.
Track Name: Well, That Was A Freebie
I remember when this was just something we would do
and not a desperate, sad, and failed attempt to hold on to our youth.
We've got to find a way to make it fun again.
If this is all there is then I'll go crazy.
Track Name: We're Really Doing It Though, Ain't We Buddy?
On my way home I hear "Separation Sunday," "How A Resurrection Really Feels."
And if that's a life I've never led
then why does it resonate in my head?
Why does always leave me shaken?
Why does it leave me wondering if I played it safe.
This is the life that I chose.
I won't play it safe, I keep telling myself.
Watching them dance I'm thinking i could never,
No I could never move that way front of anyone else.
And I think of all the times that I've said never, no I could never.
All my insecurity and everything it stole from me.
Not this time.
What if we tried to shut out our pride
for long enough to do something that's worth being remembered for?
Maybe it's time we stopped all our dreaming.
Wake up and do something about it.
When I think of what I could have been,
When I think of what I could have done if only I had had the nerve to try.
If I wouldn't let myself be satisfied with only getting by.
And I know I may never have a chance to make up this lost time,
But I'm still breathing, still have strength in these bones, and I swear this time I will try.
What if we tried to shut out our pride
for long enough to do something that's worth being remembered for?
I think it's time we stopped all our dreaming.
Wake up and do something about it.
Track Name: Kara Thrace and Her Special Destiny
I'm 24 years old and I've got this song in my heart I just can't get out.
I'm trying every night when I write these songs.
Its hard to say what you mean when you use poor words
but it's all about you.
I'm 25 and I think I know why I won't let this song in my heart out.
Why would I let go of something I want to keep?
Always with me keeping rhythm.
It's all about you.
You're what keeps my heartbeat
You're what keeps my heart beating
You're what keeps my heart in time.
Track Name: Randy Koruschak's Party Crew Shack
Where I grew up they don't have bike lanes!
They're not big on sidewalks either,
but if you say you'll come out tonight
Then I can give you a ride!
Where I grew up they don't drink pepsi!
They're not big on fresca either,
but if you say you'll come out tonight
You know the drinks are on me!
Because I know we've all been a little tired lately,
And this city stays the same.
But we won't let it win, gonna make our own fun,
Gotta make it all worth something.
And I know she broke your heart man
But I swear we'll be right
here to help you put it together.
But you've got to let us try!
Come out! Tonight!
Even though sometimes life isn't ok
And we'll take it on together our way
We'll be alright.
Come out! Tonight!
We'll get stupid and we'll stay up to late!
We'll tell stories that remind us that we,
We'll be alright.
And someday we'll tell our kids what we remember of nights like these.
I'm telling you man. I think we'll be alright.
Track Name: Detective Comics #27
She's got layers I want to know about underneath that look she puts out that tells me what to do.
Lying here on this cold soft couch, I introduce her neck to my mouth and I know she knows I've thought this through.
So I layer her body with kisses.
Some places I revisit.
As her heart speeds up I come back up to her lips again.
We drink til I get dizzy, and she has her way with me.
Its all part of a master plan to make a layer I can understand.
I can smell her skin on my upper lip as I drive home the next morning.
I want to go back for more,
But I have a week to write it down,
Diagrams to map it out, the layers I'll make next weekend.
So I layer her body with kisses.
Some places I revisit.
As her heart speeds up I come back up to her lips again.
And we drink til I get dizzy, and she has her way with me.
Its all part of a master plan to make a layer I can understand.
Track Name: Flonkerton
Where are you and do you remember when we were in the same class?
I went to the place where you used to work.
They told me that you'd left.
And I wish I could find you today,
to see what happened when we lost touch so long ago.
I liked you, but you never knew,
because you were with some other guy and
did you know the best part of my day
was walking you to your locker after class?
Are you still in Memphis, or did you get the fuck out?
Are you still with him? Do you still talk to friends from back then?
And do you remember me?
And I wish I could see you today.
And if I never find you, I hope you are happy now.
Track Name: Sleep Math
She says it's going to be cold soon and this season is passing us by.
I want it to mean something. I want to be outside.
Remember when we went to the ocean.
Drove all day just to stay one night.
We camped out by the water. We swam in the moonlight.
Don't hold your breath...
And I'd give anything if I could give her that.
I'd work this shift until my heart and legs went out.
And we'll never be this young again.
She shouldn't have to wait.
Don't hold your breath for me, my love.
Summer's just a time of year.
Oh my God, I know we'd give it all for one day in the sun.
We don't see it much round here.
I'll work this shift until my heart and legs go out.
I'll work this shift until our debts get sorted out.
Until I give her all the things she dreams about, I'll work this shift.
She's worth this.
Summer's just a time of year.
Go on love and live. I swear that I will join you when I'm done.
Just remember I'm still here.
Oh my God, I know I'd give it all for one day in the sun.
I don't see it much round here.
Track Name: Throwaway Jam
Crash rings out and I know it's the last time.
Pack my cords, load my amp and I'm driving away.
Can't forget how it felt to look out at my friends
They were singing and dancing in beat with my heart.
I will come back again.
I'm not ready to give up on this yet
so long as I can play, so long as you're still singing along.
I know it won't be the same as when we were young
but I don't care. It's the closest I've come to being free.
Started nervous, standing still. Ended jumping screaming whoah.
Started out in Matt Myer's basement playing fast as we could go.
I know I've got to stop thinking about this shit
and just start making more music.
Track Name: High Fives You Guys
As disheveled a a grown man can look in a suit and tie, eating breakfast in my car.
It was only a few years ago when I thought I knew just what I wanted,
Yeah, just how to get it.
As disheveled as a grown man
Yeah I'm pathetic I'm a grown man.
I wish it felt like the 80's when we were much smaller but somehow felt bigger than now.
Hey Hey!
And I'm finally old enough to understand that no fucking punk band is ever gonna save me
But they were always pointing in the right direction.
"Do it yourself!" screaming "Do it yourself!"
And I've been thinking about my dad
And how he always made it work
And how he never had to write a fucking loud song to vent about it.
Me and my friends we may not have the answers
But we're getting damn good at yelling the questions
We may not know all of the words
But we're singing along
We're singing along
Woah-oh. Woah-oh. Bada bada. Na na nananana.
