Track Name: Daydream DJ
You can't fight for what you've already lost
Keep only the clothes that make you feel hot
Sheets are clean -- life's still a mess
But someone fancies you, don't forget

Another daydream DJ
Another mohawk weekend
It's not a race, but I can win
Don't go easy on me

Writing this chapter without you
Writing this one warts & all
It's like yelling on an elevator
I'm gonna Tyrannosaurus wreck the walls

Another daydream DJ
Another mohawk weekend
Gonna learn to breakdance
No easy moves for me
Track Name: Recognition
I thought I recognized you
I thought I recognized you
You look just like my friend
I thought I recognized you
Now I wanna be your friend
i thought I recognized you
So let's be friends

I'm not weird
I'm not weird
(well maybe just a little weird)

I thought I recognized you
At the big rock show
I thought I recognized you
It was dark, how could I know?
I thought I recognized you
Maybe from another life
I thought I recognized you
You seem like a cool guy

I'm not weird
I'm not weird
Let's shake hands and be friends

I thought I recognized you
I thought I recognized you
You look just like my friend
I thought I recognized you
Now I wanna be your friend
I thought I recognized you
So let's be friends

I'm not weird
I'm not weird
(well maybe just a little weird)

But we're all a little weird
Weird's the new normal, dontcha know?
I thought I recognized you
Maybe from another life
I thought I recognized you
Or maybe we were in the same class?
I thought I recognized you
Cheers, clink my glass!
I thought I recognized you
And your girlfriend too
I thought I recognized you
Do you like this band?
I thought I recognized you
Won't you be my friend?
Track Name: Coattails
Won't you take me on faith?
Can't I ride your coattails?

Take my hand!
Foster me!
I'm falling down!
Make me a star!

You know I'll be worthwhile
Let me ride your coattails

Pick me up!
Sponsor me!
Desperate!
Grinding wheels!
Track Name: No Sleep Just Yet
I
don't want
to go
to sleep
just yet
just yet.
Track Name: New Found Land
Well, I just found this place
And now you want me to leave?
I can't go nowhere else
This is where I should be

Well, I've been wandering around
Just got into this town
Now I'm taking off my shoes
Planting my feet in the ground

Well, I just found this place
And now you want me to leave?
I can't go nowhere else
This is where I should be
Track Name: Spirals
It cuts me to the bone, yes it does
To think you said you care, but you never show
This is my excuse, my escape
A necessary evil I take

I've dug myself a deep deep hole
Tumbling down where nothing can grow
Saw the warning signs, and ignored
I used to think in lines, not in spirals

I used to take a chance with a love
I used to feel fresh and young
Doors are closing all around me now
Folks are rising up, they're distant clouds

And if I die before I wake
I pray no one sees the mess I made

I remember weekends were fun
I remember worshipping the sun
Now I fear the cold light of day
Nothing washes off the smell of shame

I wish some days did not exist
Track Name: Matters To Me
Wait- don't go
I need more
Stay
We want to hear more songs

You say you might be quitting your music blog
I hope you won't
Please don't

You don't play
To make the audience run away
Doubt all you need
But it matters to me

The next day my guitar still reeked of fire
I am changed
Those flames remain
Track Name: Sure
You're so sure
Sure
You're so sure
Sure of yourself
Sure of yourself

You're so sure
Finger on the pulse
You're so sure
You can barely feed yourself
You're so sure
Finger on the pulse
Sure
You wouldn't know a pulse

You claim
You've got consensus
You claim
You've got consensus
Claims
You make no sense to us
Claims
It's all nonsense to us

You're so sure
Sure
You're so sure
Sure of yourself
Sure of yourself
Track Name: I Was In Love With You
When we hang out, there's nothing left out
When we hang out, there's nothing left out
When we hang out, there's nothing left out
The one thing left out was just to protect you
Cuz oh

I was in love with you

Wasn't pretending when I lent you my ears
Wasn't pretending when I supported you
Wasn't pretending when I believed in you
One thing I never mentioned was this

I was in love with you
