Track Name: The Night Before Prelude
To smell the night
By the windowside
Through booze tainted nostrils
I don't think I'll sleep tonight
Is there still time?
I open wide
to the long-sleeve weather that my windows breathe
How can I make the best of it before it leaves?
Track Name: Good Morning to the Afternoon
Good morning to the afternoon
and the voices in my mind
I wanted to buy you, I wanted to kill you
Just a little time
Good morning to the afternoon
Tell me what you think
and while the morning's not around
We both could use a drink
Sleeping through the storm
Tape recorder on the cardboard box
Sing sweet noise to me
Memories dripping from your batteries
There's coke cans and bottles scattered on the shelf
So while lethargy blankets me, I'll scatter here myself
I've got a handle of liquid courage
To numb my shame of being a coward
so if I don't pick up the phone
I hope you won't get sour
Storm leaks in my bed
Migraine lightning pulses through my head
I don't mind today
I don't really know any other way
Is there still time?
I open wide
to the long-sleeve weather that my windows breathe
How can I make the best of it before it leaves?
Track Name: It's Snowing On My T.V. (But It's Nice Outside)
I'm in a cartoon figment of a fever dream
This saxophone voicemail blankets me
and I'm tongue-tied toothless with a tambourine
with lemon pledge body spray and roommate fleas
and they're eating me for free while I watch T.V.
Six pack of Robitussin up my sleeve
and I ask myself why I try to hide when it's snowing on my T.V.
but it's nice outside
All along, tears filling up the bags under my eyes
All the while, while I while away my sleepless nights
It's snowing on my T.V. but it's nice outside
I'm in a glass eye hamster wheel gaining speed
Just hoping I can make it home
Highway lullabies are all I need
to help me not feel so alone
and the street signs telling me I'm going blind
so I wander back slowly from the end of the line
Now I'm singing my sorrows to a willow tree
It holds me in its arms while I watch T.V.
and lately I wonder why I try to hide
When it's snowing on my T.V. but it's nice outside
Track Name: Destiny
Memory is the unmarked grave in which we bury tragedy
and every night it breathes new life
As I indifferently feign indifference to your sight
and try to fall asleep beneath you cigarette night light
And I can't believe I tried again
Did you hear any of what I said?
Oh it's terribly a part of me
The way I always have to say goodbye
Goodbye
Oh Destiny, you'll never see just why I always had to leave your side
'Cause you know I could never stay away too long
Listening to the calm before the storm
I'm inherently finding myself at your door
You always offer help
But help is just a point of view
Though I'm alive and well
I'm hopelessly messed up too
Oh it's terribly a part of me
The way I always have to say goodbye
Goodbye
Oh Destiny, you'll never see just why I always had to leave your side
'Cause you know I could never stay away too long
Track Name: Homeless In My Home
Every time I think I've died, I wake up with a headache
I can't stand to be a man who can't stand to be standing
And I'm only alive when I throw my life away
I can't stand to understand the human I can't stand to be and
Ohh when I step into my room I just wanna go home
So I sink into my bed just like a stone
I realize I'm homeless in my home
I wonder when the goblin craft will come take me away
Because I cannot bear a world where all I see's your face and
You talk to me like you don't know how I feel
But how can I be more obvious without plunging your hand in my chest
and removing my heart?
Heyy I might as well be loving you from space
and I'd probably be more content anyway
'cause I'm the winter in your month of May
I'm always in my car driving across this stupid Earth
and I never seem to feel relief when I return
and when I open the fridge I just wanna hibernate
so I drink 'til I can't stand and hope I'll meet my fate
Ohh when I step into my room I just wanna go home
So I sink into my bed just like a stone
I realize I'm homeless in my home
Track Name: What Do I Know?
What do I know
'Bout love that can last?
What do I know?
I'm just an outcast
But I know in my dreams
You can always love me
So please make the sun go to sleep
What do I know
'Bout living fast?
'Cause you should know
I'm always in last
So if life is a race, I won't even place
But I'll always reach for your face
What do I know?
Not even myself
What do I know?
Leave me on the shelf
and occasionally briefly look at me
while I collect dust all the while
What do I know
'Bout love that can last?
What do I know?
I'm just an outcast
What would I know
'Bout even loving?
What would I know?
Probably nothing
But I know in my dreams
You can always love me
So please make the sun go to sleep
What do I know
'bout being human?
What do I know?
I'm just a goblin
and I will always see what I'm longing to be
but like you it's still out of reach
But I know in my dreams
You can always love me
So please make the sun go to sleep
