Track Name: @chl03k (Modern Baseball Cover)
’d rather spend my evening
Talking to Chloe on Twitter
Than having you come over
So it’ll be like old times
But I know that you don’t give a fuck
Cause you're knee deep in your iPhone

But Now that you saw my tweets
You know that I’m home
Buried in my cell phone
Tryna’ get a hold of someone new
Instead of hanging out with you
And your high school stories

But you sure know how to get right to me
With all those Facebook statuses
About relationships and such
Poor grammar is a must
But I trust that you can do it

But I couldn’t give a fuck
Whether you give a fuck or not
Rip my eye sockets out
Make me regret ever going out
But I know I’ll make it out of here alive
As long as I don’t watch your life
Unfold before my very eyes
You told this high school story
One too many times for me
You know I’d rather

I’d rather spend my evening
Talking to Chloe on Twitter
Than having to look you right in your eyes
Track Name: i'm tired and I hate this song and i want to be cute but i also want to be a boy (Cyberbully Mom Club Cover)
and i’d be lyin if i said i didn’t miss you
and i’d be lyin if i said i didn’t care
and i’d be lyin if i said i wouldn’t kiss you
but i’m not lyin when i say i love ur hair
don’t go, don’t go
don’t go, don’t go

and you’d be lyin if you said that you had missed me
and you’d be lyin if you said that you had cared
and you’d be lyin if you said you should’ve kissed me
but you weren’t lyin when you said that you were scared
oh no oh no
oh no, oh no

and you were lyin when you said you'd like me all year
and you were lyin when you said you’d keep me near
and you were lyin when you said that you were lonely
and you’d be lyin if you said you made it clear

don’t go,
don’t go
Track Name: Twin Size Mattress (The Front Bottoms Cover)
This is for the lions living in the wiry broke down frames of my friends bodies.
When the flood water comes, it ain't gonna be clear. It’s gonna look like mud.
But I will help you swim.
I will help you swim.
I'm gonna help you swim.

This is for the snakes and the people they bite;
For the friends I’ve made; for the sleepless nights;
For the warning signs I’ve completely ignored.
There’s an amount to take, reasons to take more.
It's no big surprise you turned out this way.
When they close their eyes and prayed you would change
And they cut your hair, and sent you away
You stopped by my house the night you escaped
With tears in my eyes, I begged you to stay
You said, “Hey man, I love you but no fucking way”

I’m sure that we could find something for you to do on stage.
Maybe shake a tambourine or when I sing, you sing harmonies.

This is for the lake that me and my friends swim in, naked and dumb on a drunken night
And it should've felt good but I can hear the Jaws theme song on repeat in the back of my mind
Make sure you kiss your knuckles before you punch me in the face
There are lessons to be learned, consequences for all the stupid things I say
And it is no big surprise you turned out this way.
The spark in her eyes, The look on your face.
I will not be late.

I’m sure we could find something for you to do on stage.
Maybe shake a tambourine or when I sing you sing harmonies.

I wanna contribute to the chaos.
I don’t wanna watch and then complain,
'Cause I am through finding blame
That is the decision that I have made.

She hopes I’m cursed forever to
Sleep on a twin-sized mattress
In somebody’s attic or basement my whole life,
Never graduating up in size to add another
And my nightmares will have nightmares every night
Oh, every night. Every night.
Track Name: you said okay (flatsound Cover)
it all started with closed eyes
and a feeling in my gut telling me
i need to keep them shut the whole time
because they opened even for a second and i saw your lips
they’d suck me in like black holes when they bend light
and it was then i realized your silence screams, "I want to be your history."

sometimes when i look up i see stars
that cut through the sky and fade quickly into nothingness
and i pray that you aren’t as fleeting
because when we’re lying in roads i get the same feeling
that gravity will just turn off and i’ll fall endlessly
into something much larger than i am
and i wonder if that’s what it feels like to die and
if i’ll ever understand god in my lifespan
because i want to see god
i want to know what god feels like

but with the weight of the bible i will break adams ribs
and repeat, my dear eve, you do not take after this
you were not made in a mans image
but if that’s the case why do you feel so lost
in the empty space that his hand isn’t
why do i wait wondering how long it’ll take you to admit it
i’d rather keep my mouth shut then start to say what i can’t finish
baby i have limits

so i’m singing ‘la la la’ in empty rooms that carry sounds like hollow caves
'la la la' just to prove you're not the only one that can occupy a borrowed space
'la la la' for every ship that was set to sail but got washed away
i’m singing ‘la la la’ in desperate hopes that when it bounces back i hear the octave change
so if we could just pretend that your voice exists inside this empty void within
then holy shit, holy shit, holy shit if you spoke
insomnia might loosen its wholesome grip on my throat
and i can begin to forgive you for admitting the hoax
instead of learning to hate you for very minute you don’t
because i sit here wondering if anything you said was true
and who it was that taught you to speak bullets
without considering the exit wound
tell me who

because i still think back to the first time you called me with nothing to say
that morning you were more than just my friend and we both noticed something had changed
you drove to your parents house and we talked about everything
we talked about how much it sucked, but no matter what, we had to remain
nothing

and in that deafening silence
i asked if i could still call you my snowflake
and you said okay
Track Name: oh my god (Teen Suicide Cover)
you follow me
everywhere that i go
you’re in my dreams
(oh my god)
you’re haunting me
you’re in the air
you’re in my head
(oh my god)
i can’t be still
even in my bed
oh my god
you’re in my head
Track Name: Soco Amaretto Lime (Brand New Cover)
Passed out on the overpass
Sunday best and broken glass
Broken down from the bikes and bars
Suspended like spirits over speeding cars
You and me were kings over the parkway tonight
And tonight will go on forever while we
walk around this town like we own the streets
and stay awake through summer like we own the heat
Singing "everybody wake up
it's time to get down"

And when I pass the bottle back to Pete
on the overpass tonight, I bet we laugh

I'm gonna stay eighteen forever
So we can stay like this forever
And we'll never miss a party
cause we keep them going constantly
And we'll never have to listen
to anyone about anything
cause it's all been done and it's all been said
we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get

The hell out of this town
Find some conversation
The low fuel lights been on for days
It doesn't mean anything
I've got another 500, 'nother 500 miles
before we shut this engine down,
we shut it down

I'm gonna stay eighteen forever
So we can stay like this forever
And we'll never miss a party
cause we keep them going constantly
And we'll never have to listen
to anyone about anything
cause it's all been done and it's all been said
we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get

Eighteen forever
So we can stay like this forever
And we'll never miss a party
cause we keep them going constantly
And we'll never have to listen
to anyone about anything cause it's all been done
and it's all been said
we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get

You're just jealous cause we're young and in love
