Track Name: Ex Boyfriend's Gameboy Color
one interesting fact about me
the only friend i've made this week
is by ex boyfriend's gameboy color
it gets along with me like no other and
my friends say to stop being so sick with worry
cause in the end we're only growing up slowly
oh, are you really friends of mine?
filled with ridicule, genocide and cyanide and
i find it funny cause you never text me back and
he only never ever likes you when you're sad, man
so cut me some slack
you've been joking around with me for far too long
cut me some slack
if you'll notice, i'm not that strong
Track Name: My New Friends
my old friends don't seem to understand
that i'm drowning and there's no sight of land
so keep your steady gaze away from my face
i'm stuck in my head and i'm out of place
but my new friends, yeah they give me hell
and they're so cool now, it's getting hard to tell
if they even want me around
i wanna jump off a building and never hit the ground
cause that's where my anxiety lives
under rocks, twigs, and sticks
and between my lips
and that's where my depression hides
in grass, flowers, beehives
and behind my eyes.
Track Name: Solitude
it's 10:12 it's nighttime
and i skipped school for the ninth time
and i know you'll be like "nevermind"
and we won't be friends anymore
just because i opened my eyes
and god knows how hard i tried
and in all my life
i've never been so productive
oh maybe solitudes not all that bad
oh maybe solitudes not all that bad
that boy you hate
the boy that wants to fuck up his own fate
finally asked me why i've gone away
leading me in the wrong direction
but rather let's talk about you
the boy that's got me in the blues
used to think you were a dream come true
but you're just so frustrating
oh maybe solitudes not all that bad
oh maybe solitudes not all that bad.
Track Name: Extra Weight
i hope you see this on your facebook feed
and go to listen cause you've been missing me
it's the same old, same old, writing songs about you again
only this time, my bedroom walls are closing in
and i thought i blocked you out of my mind
but i can't drink poison and expect you to die
so stay out of my life, once and for all
i don't wanna hear about your girlfriends or how i never call
just know i'm doing fine, i'm so fucking great
i'm happier without you, you were just extra weight.
Track Name: Fairweather Friend
you said you don't need friends cause you've got pills
then the very next day you're complaining about how you woke up ill
so i'll say goodbye to my former lover
cause i don't think i've ever endured anything tougher
so tell me why i'm still trying
and why you're still replying
if i'm a fairweather friend
woah, a fairweather friend
woah, a fairweather friend
a fairweather friend
now i'm forced to watch this dry up like paint on a wall
instead of expressively, creatively, artistically writing on a bathroom stall
and i don't mind letting people in but you're in so deep you're crawling beneath my skin
so tell me why you're still trying
and why i'm still replying
if i'm a fairweather friend
woah, a fairweather friend
woah, a fairweather friend
a fairweather friend
you said i'm contradicting and suicidal
went from best friends to rivals
and i know it's a lot to ask
but please get off my back
cause selflessness is something that you lack
i'm nothing but a fairweather friend to you
and that's all i'll ever be
a fairweather friend
Track Name: You've Got A Boyfriend Now. Cool
she got what she wanted, the nerdy, needy type
one who seems mature but can't even spell the word "commitment" right
you said "my whole world completely caving in on me"
he thinks the whole situation just seems completely numbing
he's asking around cause he can't make his own decisions
the only thing he's good at is burning bridges
so i'll stand on the sidelines, thinking this is my fault
she's taking all these chances
skipping classes
cause he doesn't think she can handle another broken heart
you're crying over breakups
acting tough
and dying your hair a different color again
he's taking advice
and acting nice
and fixing problems that aren't even there
she's feeling the only emotions she knows
but you're both already living in glass houses, throwing stones
you're drinking, smoking, trying to get the pain to go away
showing up to school hungover isn't exactly your best choice today
he's grateful but honest and pathetically brought this
upon himself, despite what he promised
and i might feel bad but there's nothing i can do
i'd tell you that you're wrong but it's all up to you
she's taking all these chances
skipping classes
cause he doesn't think she can handle another broken heart
you're crying over breakups
acting tough
and dying your hair a different color again
he's taking advice
and acting nice
and fixing problems that aren't even there
Track Name: Lovely
you say you wanna see me
but i don't think you know just what you mean
cause that first song i wrote was all about you
you said i was your one and only but you pick and you choose
and while you're on vacation i'll run away
maybe this time you'll notice you're just a cliche
painting in your bedroom, in the dark
thinking when you're dead and gone you'll leave your mark
oh lovely mister
kept my memories, kept my time
you kiss me like it's no big deal
it tears me up inside
cause you don't seem to adore me the way you say you do
oh lovely mister
fuck your lies, and fuck your truth
cause i used to tell you jokes but you told them to another
now all i'll ever be is just an olden, untold lover
so while you're skating on the coast, making best of the cold
you'll go to san antonio leaving me without hope
i locked myself in the closet, third time today
i just can't seem to look at myself without feeling betrayed
so i'll lay in bed but refuse to sleep
now it's five in the morning and i've cut way too deep
oh lovely mister
kept my memories, kept my time
you kiss me like it's no big deal
it tears me up inside
cause you don't seem to adore me the way you say you do
oh lovely mister
fuck your lies, and fuck your truth
i spent all this wasted time on something i can't control
but i still feel you in my heart, my blood, my skin, and my bones
and i have a question, i don't mean to pry
but when did that piece of me inside you die
oh lovely mister
kept my memories, kept my time
you kiss me like it's no big deal
it tears me up inside
cause you don't seem to adore me the way you say you do
oh lovely mister
fuck your lies, and fuck your truth
Track Name: Future
i had a big future planned out
i would learn to drive and take you to my house
we would skateboard and read a lot of poetry
then you'd paint on my back and i'd teach you to sing
and i tried my first cigarette with you
you took pictures and i kept blowing the smoke through
i took hit after hit after hit after hit
then i got so addicted you begged me to quit
but you had a different image in your head
i was never in your future, i lived in your past instead
so take me off speed dial
it's four in the morning, what could you have to say?
you're nothing but a liar
you asked to hold my hand but you led me astray
a week after i said goodbye
you asked if i was okay, and "it's okay to cry"
but here we are in my bedroom again
singing songs, taking pictures, forgetting what i said
you'll call me late at night
cause you'd love to talk but you can't ever find the time
and i'll be sad and asking stupid questions
cause you never give straight answers and ignore me when i mention
"what is the image in your head
of us in the future, do you see someone else instead?"
tell me the imagine in your head
you'd love to fall in love but you can't love me when i'm dead
so take me off speed dial
it's four in the morning, what could you have to say?
you're nothing but a liar
you said you'd always want me but you push me away
woah, woah
woah, woah
