Track Name: the art of repression
lose yourself
please everyone you know
lose yourself
run a mile for someone who has never lifted a finger for you


you can't cry
you're supposed to be a clown.
you can't cry
you're supposed to be the embodiment of sunshine

you can't scream, you can't shout
you have to smile until your teeth give out
Track Name: fun happy song
i'm tired of caring too much
i want to find a nice place where i can give up
i want to scream i want to shout
but i have to wait until my teeth give out.

it feels like i'm the only sad one,
at a fun happy party for everyone.
i can't talk about how i feel,
that would put a cut in the facade.

so i'll continue treading the water
that wants to make me drown
so i'll continue
taking the blue happy pills that don't really work
so i'll continue
being resillient
Track Name: friendly reminder that i have no idea what i am doing (be your own dad)
I couldn't tell you the lyrics even if I wanted to because I don't remember them, and your guess as to what they are as good as mine.
Track Name: praise the lord
suck my dick, jesus christ
i'll suck yours if you suck mine
it's not weird,
i just want to praise you

you died for my sins
in the most brutal way
so sucking dick
is the very least i can do

every day i sit and wonder
how i can improve our relationship
i read in a men's magazine
that sucking dick does wonders

so if you want to take me up on the offer
just come down to my bedroom
i'll be there, ready to consent

suck my dick, jesus christ
i'll suck yours if you suck mine
it's not weird,
i just want to praise you
Track Name: trouble
Ever since we met,
the world’s been upside-down,
and if you don’t stop troublin’ me you’ll drive me out of town.
But if you go away,
as trouble ought to do,
where will I find another soul to tell my trouble to?

My bed is made of stone,
a star has burnt my eye,
I’m goin’ down to the willow tree and teach her how to cry.
But if you go away,
as trouble ought to do,
where will I find another soul to tell my trouble to?

They bid me wear my hat,
put on a nice new gown;
I tossed my bonnet over the roof and I guess it won’t come down.
But if you go away,
as trouble ought to do,
where will I find another soul to tell my trouble to?
Track Name: remember the day
Remember the day
When I left home to buy some food
Myself in that painful February mood
I did what I could

Remember that day
When I left home to just buy some food
Considering if one shouldn't die or if one should
Sun was high
And I found me on the road to Genoa

Did you ever drive in a moonstruck constitution?
And find to reach a seaport and down there is a solution
You should If you could

There slowly, slowly, I no longer thought of what is good or what is not
There simply was the water's smell and remoteness
I only stood and watched that old cold ocean
In tender and bright, full, unspeakable emotion
I did what I could
All was good
Track Name: you are some of my sunshine
The other night, dear,
As I lay sleeping
I dreamed that you had up & left,
But when I awoke, dear,
you were just right there,
And I thought what a funny dream it was!

You are my sunshine,
some of my sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You'll always know dear,
How much I love you.
because my actions reflect that fact.

I'll always love you
and respect your boundaries
and you don't have to love me back.
because I am happy,
to know you're happy,
and I know that feelings can change sometimes.

You are my sunshine,
some of my sunshine.
You make me happy
when skies are grey.
You'll always know dear,
How much I love you.
because I never let you forget.

You told me once, dear
You really loved me
And no one else could come between
But now you've left me
And love another
and I respect you all of the same.

You are my sunshine,
some of my sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You'll always know dear,
How much I love you.
because I remind you all of the time.
Track Name: if you didn't want a mean song written about you, then you shouldn't have assaulted a songwriter
to preserve your good name,
i won't say anything.
to preserve your good name,
i won't say anything.
Track Name: driving home; stoned & alone
driving home, stoned, and alone.
these are the important things to remember.
that guy on 94, that guy in the yellow truck.
he was not looking at you.
you were driving fine.
you’re great.
second of all, you are not lonely.
if you were lonely, you’d be sad.
you’re not sad, you’ve got a smile on your face!
the third thing to remember when you’re driving home, stoned, and alone, at 3 in the morning.
it’s actually 3:26.
the fourth thing to remember when you’re driving home, stoned, and alone, at 3 in the morning,
you still live with your parents, do not knock on the door.
if you knock on the door, they’re going to think something’s wrong.
that you locked your keys in your car, or that you are too stoned to have been driving home.
and buddy, don’t worry, you are fine. you smoked that last blunt 6 hours ago.
you are not too stoned to be driving, you are the perfect amount of stoned.
but you’re still under the impression, that you’re too stoned to be driving.
and that makes me really concerned about the way that you approach the world.
and when you’re awake and stoned at three in the morning, you should actually be asleep, that’s what you should be doing right now.
don’t think about how you disappointed your friend by forgetting you made plans.
don’t think about how you ran over a raccoon, and probably killed it.
don’t think about that medical bill that is probably on its way to collections right now.
don’t think about how you are probably never going to overcome depression, and how it is going to be something you’ll deal with for the rest of your life.
you’re stoned and alone at three in the morning, and you’re in your car.
just go inside of your house, get into your bed, and go to sleep.
there is nothing good you can offer the world at this moment.
you do not need to be awake.
go to sleep.
the world will be there for you when you wake up.
and if it isn’t, don’t worry about it,
it’s not your fault.
