Big Diction 00:45
I haven't picked up my guitar in weeks cuz I've been dying to win you over and now I realize that I've been failing so I'm about to stoop a little lower cuz all my friends think that you're psychotic that you're more than confused you're an idiotic people pleaser with no conviction who gets drunk then slurs through his diction and I thought that it was cute when we first started talking but now I think it's fucking grating I had a dream the other night you were dying and woke up pissed because I knew it was fiction you're a poor excuse for sad and single in that button-down all covered in wrinkles I remember I made fun of you last time you wore that shirt but I don't care anymore
I always got the best sleep in the passenger's seat of your SUV on highway 17, on I-40, or the 133 and you always preferred driving when you were high and I didn't mind cuz at least you were a nice guy back in 2012 when we were bored as hell but it's not like that now cuz in my dreams I'm losing teeth and as a result it seems i'm losing sleep I've got deep hatred for my anxiety stemming from all the time I've wasted on you and me "Easy/Lucky/Free" was my favorite song when I was just 16 and thought that you could do no wrong but boy I was so wrong now I'm 24 and god forbid I want more than what you're giving to me than what you buy at the store I want nice biceps and a good broad chest I don't want no regrets could it be that I am finally moving on? and pretty soon I won't feel like every choice I make is wrong focusing on the things I want/ need to have like a lover with brains and a new cool butt to grab
Idiot Boy 02:28
If I could I would already have you in my bed and erased all the memories of the brunette that came before me tho the high bar's probably a different story a tiny piece of heaven born in '87 just three years and one day apart we're so the same man we're stuck on the cusp we're both compassionate and vulnerable you're uncertain but I think this is possible I love you Phillipp Boy
Heat Rash 03:07
I heard you're growing out your beard well that's great, keep it away from me and when you graduate next year I heard you're moving across the sea see I can get behind that if it gets you off my back I know I said that I wouldn't be bitter well, I'm bitter I heard you liked them studious so I started reading books I heard you liked them tan and confident so I improved my summer looks and from June to August I was looking fine but it was all such a waste of time I know I said that I wouldn't be bitter well, I'm bitter and I just wanted you to know before you go that if you're finally sick of sleeping alone that I'd be down to go another night and I'll be free sometime after five if you love your mother that's enough you don't have to act so tough you frustrate me to the max in that straight boy shirt from Gap we've both got flaws man without a doubt but to you the worst would seem coming out in those pinstriped pants you're unabashed I'm a dog with fleas and a heat rash honestly we could both do better but whatever
Places 02:33
She said that her parents didn't read to her much as a kid she preferred to watch MacGyver and all the creative things that he did now she's 25 and she's glad to be alive with a gift to find the good in all people and treat every new day like a win I've been to all these places and I can't believe I just found you It's not her high education that keeps my attention at times use my eyes like a camera to capture her mantras and stains on her teeth from the wine oh my god! oh my god! I need your help my goldfish has reached the end of its line So we laughed and we cried and we said our "goodbyes" with a smile and a "see ya next time"
Could you do me one favor please and learn the fucking words to this song the chorus and the verse and the melody and how to sing along and I'm sorry that I haven't been in touch much but I promise there's no other men I just haven't found the joy in company lately I'll hit you up when it's fun again don't expect me to remember your birthday if when or whether we made plans for things together I barely survived November
I'm having a panic attack driving home from a show while "I Will Remember You" by Sarah McLachlan is playing on the radio then you looked at me and said "your mood lately's been less than groovy" okay that's not exactly what you said maybe but I heard you baby and I won't make it if I try no I have fallen down by the wayside I think it's inevitable now I die cuz I've been wasting time like it's nobody's business can't you see you're better off alone than you are with me I'm insecure unstable and barely sweet and I don't even practice what I preach to you don't make excuses baby I'm just a fool I'm better off alone just listening to Tool can't you tell we're so doomed and I won't make it if I try no I have fallen down by the wayside I think it's inevitable now I die cuz I've been wasting time like it's nobody's business and I've finally earned death you said "baby come and talk to me" but you were never really listening you said "come on baby, don't try to hide it" I just saw a red flag and I kept trying to fight it you said "baby come and talk to me" but you were never really listening no you were never really listening
Every day you convince me that you've changed but you never have and you never will cuz you are never anything these days–I'm sorry I can't say the same I'm sorry I can't say the same, bud cuz when you're young you get hurt by everything and I know you you don't believe in anything but you needed the facts when the facts weren't easy cuz if you think the pros outweigh the cons well, you're dreaming I know the truths not what you want to hear but just comforting you wouldn't be quite fair you're not off the hook no you're not going anywhere but it's not like you to really care no it's not like you to care at all and even with a healthy dose of sentiment you're still quick to start an argument and it goes back and forth and on and on and on even if you're wrong you're unstoppable especially if you're miserable when you're young when every day is so the same and you start to feel like things will never change remember when I hates Sugar Ray now I listen to them every day
Kith and Kin 05:04
Mom I know it's been too long since I last made it home and dad I'm cool to talk again if you can make it to the phone coach, it seems like once again 'gonna take one for the team ex-lover, I still play the songs we liked at seventeen we may live far apart, but you'll always have a home in my heart think of all the ones you love the ones you love the most and keep them close and keep them close and keep them close sister how's the old school? are you following the rules? brother at your new job just do the best that you can do neighbors, ya still got my basketball missed shots; I'm no '33' and nana, are those pearly gates as bright as you thought they'd be? you're talking me down while I'm talking you up I know you get scared when we talk about love
Dylan's Room 02:42
Well I've been thinking a lot about that time we did shrooms in that one bedroom house we used to call Dylan's room and for four hours straight we played Album by Girls and now that one stupid night makes all the sense in the world cuz I only wanna be with you you put chapstick on your hands cuz you said they were dry and then you couldn't use your phone do you remember I cried cuz everything that night was so goddamn perfect do you remember the lights? do you still think I'm worth it? cuz I only wanna be with you and yeah it's kinda fucked how so much has changed and we're all older now and we're set in our ways and I don't know what brought on this nostalgic kick but I apologize for every time that I was a dick but c'mon really what was I supposed to do because when feelings got tossed around where were you? you were playing devil's advocate and twice removed you weren't thinking 'bout the shrooms we did back in Dylan's room now I only wanna be with you and I don't even know why
Carson Daly 06:17
6:00 PM on a Sunday I'm having a breakdown you used to think I was cool now you don't want me around and it's not like I blame you I've become some sort of clown a caricature of myself I wish I was someone else I wish we were somewhere else I was way more comfortable back at your house smoking weed on the couch just zoning out to Total Request Live with Carson Daly I'm sorry I was looking for more than friends it's just the way god made me
