Track Name: Big Mistake
donated to the Red Cross
picked up litter that had been tossed
into the riverbed
didn’t watch porn before bed

helped direct some foreigners
gave my money to guys on corners
but I am not a saint
I was preparing for a date

building up my karma so that I would be
in the good books of whatever deity
was presiding over my chances to sleep 
with you

that plan seemed to work
got a second date and then a third
but then i got reckless
a woman in a dress

asked me for some change
but i declined and walked away
and i felt really bad
but i didn’t turn back

and i should’ve known, should’ve known right then
that whatever we had was gonna come to an end
i stopped fearing the gods i swear i don’t believe in
and now i see that was a

big mistake

now i’m wishing you would
tell me the perfect guy who wandered into your life was really

a big mistake
(don’t fuck with god, be a good person, don’t think you’re hot)
Track Name: Mental Health
I’ve just been lying
On my porch and trying
Not to think about lying
In your bed and trying

Not to check my messages
Every 15 seconds is
It hard on you? It isn’t
And that’s the worst admission

You used to talk to me when I got down
You used to lay me out on the couch
Now I gotta do it all myself
My mind is overheating like an ice shelf

You’re the picture of mental health
And you put me in mental hell
But I am going to crawl out
With television and time’s help

I made a self-directive
To put things in perspective
So I watched a retrospective
About the Great Depression

And I started volunteering
Litter does need clearing
Yeah I’m picking up lost earrings
And trying not to picture them on

You used to talk to me when I got down
You used to lay me out on the couch
Now I gotta do it all myself
My mind is overheating like an ice shelf

You’re the picture of mental health
And you put me in mental hell
But I am going to crawl out
With television and time’s help

A book on introverts
Told me to
Accept the good and the bad
So that’s what I’ll do
The good was knowing you
The bad’s not pleasing you
The good was knowing you

Used to talk to me when I got down
You used to lay me out on the couch
Now I gotta do it all myself
My mind is overheating like an ice shelf

You’re the picture of mental health
And you put me in mental hell
But I am going to crawl out
With television and time’s help
Track Name: Stargazing
Held hands
Wait to be freed
His slips away
Silently and she
Knows it is what it is
It’s a take and a give
So she sighs just a bit
And watches as he turns and spits

And he says
That he wants love
But he don’t
And she says
That they’ll break up
But they won’t

Stargazing at the ocean floor
The beauty’s there, but it’s not what they’re looking for
Still they can’t turn away
they’re entranced by the sight
cuz they know what it’s like
for a beautiful thing to not feel quite right

And he says
That he wants love
But he don’t
And she says
That they’ll break up
But they won’t
Track Name: Neighbours (making love)
The Wretched of the Earth
Is really no match for
The sadness in my gut
So now it’s coming for my lungs

Because I don’t fit in
And I’m surrounded
By sane kids having fun
Neighbours making love

When I eat alone
When I check a silent phone
The sadness in my gut
Starts coming for my lungs

Because I don’t fit in
And I’m surrounded
By sane kids having fun
Neighbours making love
And not quietly
Love and not quietly
Love and not quietly
Love and not quietly

Only comes sometimes
But it came more being surrounded by
So many peers
Who all contribute to the fears
That I’m letting my
Social golden days pass me by
And there’s some merit to those
But I gotta find a better way to be on my own
On my own
On my own
On my own
