Track Name: Adult Party
i will tug on your sleeve when i'm ready to leave

i'm the kind of girl who trips herself in gym
i never just can win
it's such a pretty world i wish i could jump in
but it's just too fast of a spin

i will tug on your sleeve when i'm ready to leave

i'm the kind of boy that drowns himself in gin
til everyone's a shiny friend
kid you're looking spooked, maybe you should take a seat
try not to stare at the screen

i will tug on your sleeve when i'm ready to leave

i'm the kind of dog that chases his own tail
i never can feel well
so come on and take me for a walk
i promise i won't stray far i'll watch out for the cars

i will tug on your leash when i'm ready to leave

i'm the kind of cat that always lands on her back
i never can get it right
people all around so i bury my head in the sand
nervous around new hands

i will tug on your sleeve when i'm ready to leave
this adult party
Track Name: Wake Up
girlfriend save me
i'm much too drunk
i'm much too drunk
i like you baby
i like you a lot
i like you a lot

someone's digging up my grave
i hear their shovel pounding my brain
jeepers creepers what's that say
someone's digging up my grave

and the shit that they gave you was much too strong
and the shit that they gave you was too much
please wake up so i can sing you this song
please wake up please wake up

i saw you crying
then you ran off
compose yourself
you came back lying
about everything
when you took my ring

and the shit that they gave you was much too strong
and the shit that they gave you was too much
please wake up so i can sing you this song
please wake up please wake up
Track Name: Friends and Sedatives
i sing my way through the days and sleep on people's floors
and i drink what they give me and try not to be annoyed
by the way they all love to say "hey are you doing okay?"

well you used to be among them now you turn the other cheek
say when'd you get so modest, you were never that way with me
but you know i don't mind a bit it's all coming to a halt
i'm moving on and it's nobody's fault

now you travel place to place always looking for a soul to steal
and you never claimed to own the game but you still spun the wheel
and i used to be caught up in the tragic tales you tell
but it's over now and i'm trying to get well

but every reassurance just magnifies the doubt
how do you rid yourself of sickness that you've never lived without?
and all my friends and sedatives mean well but make it worse
i'm just waiting for the days where it won't hurt
Track Name: Drunk Party, Sober Girlfriend
kids in the hot tub
stuff in my red cup
you are so kind you blow my mind
haven't even had a drink tonight

some chinese restaurant
the noodles dripping out
a booth for two a rainy view
i like it here with you

nothing falls apart the way i'll fall apart with this drink
nothing falls apart the way you'll fall apart with me

new slang in yr eyes
came as a surprise
on the cold ground ice in my mouth
the serpents tongue

nothing falls apart the way i'll fall apart with this drink
nothing falls apart the way you'll fall apart with me
Track Name: Holla Daze
he spits and buzzes around my head
vomit's still warm around your bed
i wonder if it's safe to say

you're on my team
don't turn so green
you're on my team

white dog on the sidewalk on a leash like me

broken hearts grow wings to fly
hands full of Novva's perfume
don't let the holidays

hollow you out
don't look down
hollow you out

white dog on the sidewalk on a leash like me
somewhere down german town stair case red face
if you let her she will lick your mouth
Track Name: Teeth Chatter
why would i lie
just give me the stuff kid
i don't have the time
let's get this over with

i push my fingers through
teeth chatter i like you
i push my fingers through
teeth chatter tongue turns blue

it's a flower dream
down in your basement
hear the dogs scream
hide the blood on my face

i push my fingers through
teeth chatter i like you
i push my fingers through
teeth chatter tongue turns blue

she came right through me like cigarettes and coffee
she's like that movie that i can't stop watching
Track Name: Drunken Irish Pub
oh how i'd love to
kiss the flames that wrap around your wonderful head
oh how you said once that you felt best on
a camper watching the sun
and oh how i'd love to tell you really
how precious you are and all that jiving around
and to the docks on her lonely eyes
i am calmly tied and i will never stray
and oh how i'd love you if you were near me
but you're not so i do the best i can
Track Name: Brand New Tattoo
i look at you you look away
to the attraction on the stage
he sings his songs we sing along
and when it's over we'll go home

through clothing stores and parking lots
we walk around and talk a lot
you show me yr brand new tattoo
i say it's great and so are you

you kiss my cheek right before you leave
i stand in silence and watch you go
i don't know when i'll see you again
i only hope you'll stay my friend
Track Name: Grow Up
i know the reason why you gnaw
kiss me like you're hungry cause i'm starving for you
your lortab eyes fall asleep on my shoulder
and i realize how old i have grown
and how my love never dies even if i want it

i drove yr car
you kissed my mouth
i want it all
grow up with me
Track Name: at least i was abducted by aliens with a girl who has a nice jawline
pizza smaller than the plate
trying to watch my weight
high five to the girl with the nice jawline
aliens right on time
Track Name: Song to a Siren
i will leave how i came
hollow and afraid
i took a walk in the woods
but the monster never came
the siren's fingers through my hair
and all the words that her tongue bares
wisps the winds that turn the tide
as the waters start to rise
and when she sings she sings meek
and all she brings she brings to me
another piece of prey in the gnashing of her teeth
Track Name: Take Care
sit down next to me
in the light of the christmas tree
i wanna hold your hand
take care when you leave
in the rain drive safe
god only knows what i would do

i'm so scared
why in the world are you hanging around
somebody like me
your eyes are like crows and
your heart's like soap and you make me clean
it's so cold i make like a ghost so i won't be seen

you speak like the dawn
you really are something else
wanna be the ink that your heart bleeds

i'm so scared
why in the hell are you hanging around
somebody like me
your eyes are like crows and
your heart's like soap and you make me clean
it's so cold i make like a ghost so i won't be seen

take care if you leave
i'll remember all you said to me
Track Name: Girl Asleep
there's a girl asleep and she's next to me on this train
and i wonder who she is, where she's going, and why she's came
was it her mom or dad or has someone pushed her away
is it some lover that's in a land far away

i've got these thorns in my wrists and they're starting to piss me off
i've got so much time but the time i've got is never enough
and the stars start to make these impossible shapes
and it reminds me soon this girl will be awake

she'll be getting off this train
she'll be forgetting my face
she'll be on her way

there's this empty seat and it's next to me on this train
i've two stops left and i'll leave for good this place
and i'll never see her again
Track Name: Adult Party (other version)
i will tug on your sleeve when i'm ready to leave

i'm the kind of girl who trips herself in gym
i never just can win
it's such a pretty world i wish i could jump in
but it's just too fast of a spin

i will tug on your sleeve when i'm ready to leave

i'm the kind of boy that drowns himself in gin
til everyone's a shiny friend
kid you're looking spooked, maybe you should take a seat
try not to stare at the screen

i will tug on your sleeve when i'm ready to leave

i'm the kind of dog that chases his own tail
i never can feel well
so come on and take me for a walk
i promise i won't stray far i'll watch out for the cars

i will tug on your leash when i'm ready to leave

i'm the kind of cat that always lands on her back
i never can get it right
people all around so i bury my head in the sand
nervous around new hands

i will tug on your sleeve when i'm ready to leave
this adult party
