Track Name: im sorry it has to be this way, but we have to put an end to all of this mindless spending.
you lost your job as a typewriter
when you forgot how to write
ten thousand dollars in credit card debt
you were never good at managing your expenses

jesus robbed a bank
to pay for all your sins
i heard he used to save
but now he just spends
all his money on you
Track Name: sebastopol.
by myself and not moving
in a house with all my friends
i cant stop thinking about you
about you
about you
about you

i feel like ive been at this party
where we all cheat on each other my whole life
kiss her goodnight
throw the conversation across the room
she doesn't belong to you
it doesn't belong to you
she doesn't belong to you

every time i kiss someone
i close my eyes
every time i kiss someone
i close my eyes
i hope that i can open them
and find you next time
i hope that i can open them
and find you next time

i keep staring at the ground
thinking about how i need you around
but i've gotta get over it
but i've gotta get over it
there's a lot of places i don't belong
oh my god this feels so wrong
but i've gotta get over it
but i've gotta get over it
Track Name: hotel swimming pool.
when my parents got divorced
my mother pawned off her wedding rings
one time i heard her speaking in tongues
scream at the top of her lungs
"god, why me? will i ever fall in love again?"

sometimes i wonder what it would be like
if my older brother was still alive
but i have to admit its mostly when i need some advice
from someone who knows where i'm coming from
someone who knows were i've been

when i was a kid
we took a lot of family vacations
fall asleep in the car
wake up in a different state
please dad, can we stay?
i don't want to go back to connecticut again
i don't want to go back to north carolina again

there's a lot of truth
at the bottom of a hotel swimming pool
there's a of answers in a fold out bed
there's a lot of truth
at the bottom of a hotel swimming pool
there's a of answers in a fold out bed
Track Name: something forever.
what do you think about
when you think about me
when im not there to bother you
how fast do you fall asleep
and would it affect you
if i got up to leave

do you know what you're doing to me
i don't think you really do
do you know what you're doing to me
i don't think you really do

do you know what you're doing to me
i don't think you really do
do you know what you're doing to me
i don't think you really do

do you know what you're doing to me
i don't think you really do
do you know what you're doing to me
i don't think you really do
Track Name: video quilt.
i've got your video
it makes me uncomfortable
but i've watched it for six hours straight
in constant rewind
i wrote down all the things
i thought i wanted to see
on the back of a rite aid receipt
and shoved them in the vcr
but that didn't work out for me

you are
you are
you are
you are
all the best
and worst parts

i dont want to be stuck in my body
i dont want to go places and see people
that i feel like i have to hide from
i want everyone to love me
and forget all the stupid shit ive done
i want to start over
i want to start over
i want to start over

you are
you are
you are
you are
all the best
and worst parts
Track Name: xanax.
i am swallowing
five years of bad news
spent the prime of my youth
bleeding out up against the wall
i didnt mean for this
to happen at all

im sorry but i dont miss you
its not like i ever tried to
im sorry but i dont miss you
its not like i ever tried to

i gathered all the friends
that i had left
and told them about
the xanax cute thing
in my head
first i lost my fucking mind
and then i lost my friends
first i lost my fucking mind
and then i lost you

sometimes you have to lie
to the people that you love
sometimes you have to lie
to the people that you love
sometimes you have to lie
to the people that you love
sometimes you have to lie
to the people that you love

im sorry but i dont miss you
its not like i ever tried to
im sorry but i dont miss you
its not like i ever tried to
Track Name: you were right.
you were right
you were right
you were right
you were always right
you said i know you
like the back of my own hand
and someday you will understand
that if it's meant to be
it will be

you were right
you were right
you were right
you were always right
and now i have to live with the fact
that i hurt you so bad
that you finally gave up on me
yeah, you finally gave up on me

you were right
you were right
you were right
you were always right
Track Name: a/s/l.
so i've been doing this new thing
where i stare at strangers
until they look at me
i wont break eye contact
i wont blink
i wont move
i wont feel a thing

i saw a waitress at a restaurant
she was talking to this older guy
he said "im going to the beach"
she said "you've been here three times this week"
"what are are you, gonna bring back for me?"

whats the point of being satisfied?
what are you doing after this?
whats the point of being satisfied?
what are you doing after this?

nothing nothing
nothing nothing
nothing nothing
Track Name: i'll never lie to you again.
the only person in the world
that i want to see
doesn't want to see me
the only person in the world
that i want to see
doesn't want to see me

i'll never lie to you again
i'll never lie to you again
i'll never lie to you again
i'll never lie to you again
i'll never lie to you again
i'll never lie to you again
i'll never lie to you again
i'll never lie to you again

it's not that you were actually outdated
it's just that i felt like i outdated you
and i feel so distant from you
both literally and metaphorically
i wish we were closer
i wish we were closer

i still love you
i still love you
i still love you
i still love you
