Track Name: PERKS - Aliums...
A subtle lift, and then I feel your skin
You always left me waitin’
‘Cause you’re so cool, oh baby YOU’RE SO COOL
You make me look like the new kid

And I would get far away
Without hope of escaping
And I would take lives away
Still have no hope of escapin
Track Name: Nanner Jam
I, I want you to pull on me
Cuz you're seeing things I just love to see
and as I'm downstairs trapped in my basement
thinking i couldn't make it cuz i couldn't take it

You, you're as beautiful as the setting sun
I thought it'd be enough I could get me some
and as I'm downstairs trapped in my basement
thinking i couldn't make it cuz it couldn't take it
I couldn't make it cuz I couldn't take it.

And I sit there wondering, what did it mean to me
and did I honestly believe, that there was something out there specifically, something out there just for me
and now i just sit here listening i just sit here listening....
Track Name: Whestern Ways
Pray for me if you can
Then they’ll take me from my western wasteland
They’re no point in arguin’
I know I probably deserve this
I’ll pray for myself at least

Last night got to wonderin’
Is this all an illusion?
Is it something in my head
Something that I invented?
I guess I like it in my head

And I try and I try
Oh I try
To make this in
To something I can actually make sense of
To make this in to something I can actually make sense of
Startin’ to think I’ve overreacted
Wouldn’t be the first time I did
And I’m not very proud of it
Something I’ll have to live with
I think I overreacted

And I try and I try
Oh I try
To make this in
To something I can actually make sense of
To make this in to something I can actually make sense of
Track Name: Coconut Rock
I’ve been lyin’ to you
I said I could stay
I said that I could stay here
I’ve been too untrue
I said that I can stay
I said that I can stay here
Track Name: Mangoes the Neighborhood
I met her when I was oh so lonely
I met her, when I was struggling to stay away
We met up outside the mall that was by my house
She looked at me and I looked at her up and down.

OH BABY! She says that "you must be the guy"
And I thought "I'm in over my head."

I met her, it feels like so long ago.
I met herrrrr, when it was still sunny outside.
She took me out to the coffee shop downtown
Ordered some tea, well I just sat and I looked around

And I thought, gee, from the bottom of my gut, I'll never forget you.

Far behind, my eyes
there are electric flashes.
That don't hold
I can't trust
Soon as the come they vanish.
Track Name: Dvm Dvms
Don’t treat me like I’m just someone from dream you had
Believe me that’d do more than just make me mad

I’ve been too easy on you
I’ve been too easy on you
I’ve been too easy on you
I’ve been too easy on you
Track Name: Rhanden the Wretch
Miles removed from the people I knew
New friends now, but they're nothing like you.
I never moved on I never left
Chased some goddamn dream
This place ain't kind
I lost sight of the people that made me.


I've got dreams boy,
I've got dreams boy,
I've got dreams boy,
But they won't save a wretch like me.
Track Name: Flame Princess
Drunken stumble out those doors
a quiet moment would save my world
I could use the space to breath
But you're alone like me
You've got yourself a fire
I've never been so inspired
You gave me a place to be.

ooooh ooooh oooooh

Drunken stumble out those doors
one more touch could save my world
But I scared myself away
Cuz you're alone like me
You've got yourself a fire
I've never been so inspired
You gave me a place to be.

ooooh ooooh oooooh
Track Name: CL!CKS
(I swore I’d try, I swore I’d try to find you)

I trip through the fear
And I wait until the holidays
I know I need to persevere
I can feel the heat come from the blaze
Oh this hole is deeper now
And my fire is fleeting far away
You’re somewhere back in my hometown
Underground the future lay

I swore I’d try
I swore I’d try to find you
I swore I’d try
I swore I’d try to find you

I sit guarded by my black jacket
I think I got in the 11th grade
Of the show and of the road
My palpitations start to go away
It’s like I’m speaking in code
When I go out every Saturday
Grab my jacket and my coat
A pack of smokes and I’m on my way

Track Name: Post-Pragmatic Solutions
Pose pragmatic solutions
They don’t work
On your kind
Mindless thoughts and delusions
Lead to things
I can’t find

Don’t think that I
am runnin out of words to say
just think that I
lost my voice
