Track Name: Floating Island
Your name is the capital of Australia
But not spelled the same way
Or is it? Or am I just making shit up today?
I could feel the tension that your psychic powers had on me
I could tell that you wanted to kill me and get my music playing bitch ass off of the street
But your floating island floats through space
It floats through the cosmos everyday
And I was a sucker for your social place
So I fell into your trap
Through the hole, through the hull
Into the water that you know so well
I couldn't get out. You captured me.
You captured me and I floated alone forever.
We all know that the Tempest controls you
We all know your fake red hair is blood on your jeans
Slithering through wormholes, in and out
In and out of you is all I wanna be
But your floating island floats through space
It floats through the cosmos everyday
And I was a sucker for your social place
So I fell into your trap
Through the hole, through the hull
Into the water that you know so well
I couldn't get out. You captured me.
You captured me and I floated alone forever.
Track Name: The Babes
The guys tell me they’re jealous of my ability to play guitar and write songs
But in truth, I’m jealous of them because in this day and age, playing guitar doesn’t get the babes
The babes.
Selfish, imploding nature that I am beautifully cursed
I can’t believe what I said, what I said to her
I betrayed my friend, betrayed him good, said some things that I never should have
I walk alone, it’s narrow, this path, that is, everyone’s a star, and I’m but a pile of shit
Be careful, Tanner, you might step in it, step on your own body and thus be covered in it
I am nothing more than a wily fool; I care too much about the duty of being cool
That I forget that I’m not the only one on this earth, I wish I was my father’s son
And I wait for the moment that I’m assured that I’m loved
And I know that I am
I've got an idea...
Why don’t I take responsibility for my actions?
Track Name: Drunk
What the hell happened last night?
I woke up on the couch. Seems I passed out.
How much did I drink? And how fast did I drink it?
And who did I call?
I was asleep when everything fun took place.
Seems I passed out early, seems I couldn’t get away.
Was there a girl here? Did I know her name?
Was she the reason I drank so fast?
And who did I call?
It seems everything is more fun with beer.
Until I wake up, and I’m still alone
I wake up, and I don’t know went wrong
Yeah, everything is more fun with beer.
Looks like everything’s gonna be okay.
I ain’t an alcoholic, and I ain’t insane.
I just had a little too much fun.
Fun spent sleepin’, passed out on your couch.
And who did I call?
Track Name: Equilibrium
I let you drink all of my beer
Because the more drunk you got the more chance I had of making out with you
And the candles are lit, but we can put them out with spit
Bloody knuckles, transportation, lost loves, and bad habits
And babies cry a whole lot so why'd you wanna have one with me?
You said my singin' sounded like cryin' and it really offended me
All the words that I write are lies about past times
It's like I have an alternate universe stored away in my mind
And we're trapped in here, the real world is over there
I done lost my sense of balance, I don't got no equilibrium
A psychic entity told you what was going on in my mind
All it saw was porn and soft lies that I'd written down aside
And then you realized that you were completely fake
A product of my mind in a soul that left behind all the songs that I made
And your tears were hot, like burning lava or a coffee pot
And you got so mad and you got so depressed that you started smoking pot
All the words that I write are lies about past times
It's like I have an alternate universe stored away in my mind
And we're trapped in here, the real world is over there
I done lost my sense of balance, I don't got no equilibrium
Track Name: Shrink-Ray
I don’t know why I think about your ass
It’s a specimen that I will never grasp
You’ve got two kids, another on the way
You’ve been everywhere and I want your everything
All you older guys are lying to yourselves
You don’t want her as much as me, and it’s easy to tell
As easy to tell that my hands are clean of love
Feel my wrath as I start to glow
I was hopin’ for a shrink ray, shrink ray
So I could make it go splat, go splat
I could shrink your bigass ego
And step on you and make you go splat, go splat
I was prayin’ for a green light, green light
To hold your hand and kiss you, I’m lame, I’m lame
Drive around until I spit fire, spit fire
I will never ever have you, have you
I don’t know why I have hope in my acoustic songs
Because no one can mosh, dance, or get high to acoustic songs
I don’t know why I treat it like a real band and promote is as such
Because I know deep down inside, nobody gives a fuck
(repeat bridge and chorus)
I hope your daughters could call me dad
Because I’m hoping this goes somewhere
The wanton image of myself wants you so bad
And that love you gave at such an early age
Track Name: My Son (The Rain)
Hello, son. I’ve got something I gotta say.
The rain is nothing but a secret that the Good Lord couldn’t keep
So it fell out the sky as something wet and cold and burned the soil underneath
And that soil grew trees, and the trees made life
And we breathed in the air the that the trees made there, and we breathed it until we died
And there were guardians that watched over these threes, made sure they grew up to be all they could be
You and me, we’re nothing more than a pawn
So hold your head up and live like you want, live like your granddads and their lovers before
And hopefully I can make you happy. All I want in life is to make you happy.
Where are you? I specifically said to be home by nine.
I know what you were doin’, I know where you were
I know you were at her house, hangin’ out with that girl
I’m gonna give an explanation, some advice that you’ll need for years
A woman will strip you of your pride and your bones, but tear your chest so your heart can hear
It can hear songs, bells and chimes, opening your love to brain and mind
She will make your heart open.
And she’ll inhale you, and you’ll exhale her. So hang on to her with all you’ve got.
All I want in life is to make you happy.
We are nothing but a secret that the Good Lord couldn’t keep.
