Track Name: Master of My Domain
They say to me that I could be anything I want to be when I grow up
They say, "you could be a pirate," but I say
"But I don't want to be a pirate"
And they say, "you could be a cowboy," but I say
"But I don't wanna be a cowboy"
And they say, "you could be Switzerland, why not be Switzerland?"
And I say, "The only problem is, well I don't wanna be Switzerland."

I wanna play music and watch tv all day
I wanna tour from place to place
They say, "man, that's fucking crazy"
and I say, "it may be crazy but it's what I want to do."

I don't want my whole life to depend on some tests
I don't want to sit around at a desk
I wanna do what I love to do best and I swear to god I'll do whatever I can to make it happen
Track Name: r/Jesse
I watch you while you're sitting all alone after school
But when I try to talk to you I stammer like a fool
I like it when we lie and I can stare into your eyes
Even though I know you're thinking of other guys

When I think of you the sun shines right through
But somehow the rain begins to pour too
It's nice to feel penetrated by your rays
But it always seems to end in a rainy day

I always thought of you as the girl of my dreams
But who the fuck would wanna date a guy like me?
I guess I have bad luck with girls, what can I say?
Maybe I'd be better off if I were gay

You're fast asleep while I'm stressing out, trying to get everything figured out
You're fast asleep while I'm stressing out, trying to get my life figured out
You're fast asleep while I'm stressing out, trying to get my life figured out
You're fast asleep while I'm stressing out, trying to get my life figured out
You're fast asleep
You're fast asleep
You're fast asleep
You're fast asleep
Track Name: Open Door
Praying for an open door
Walk right in, then just lie on the floor
Lie and gaze, watch it slowly die
The sun subsides into the dark night

Sit behind the closed door
Wait and wait until I can't anymore
You know it's good to get some fresh air
And when you do, I'll be waiting there

How long now will I have to wait for another chance to come and stay?
How long will it be before I can walk back through the door?
How long will it be before I can walk back through the door?
Track Name: Darling
"Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Hold your head high so you don't get hurt"

Hear me darling, hear me can you hear me screaming?
My wound is getting bigger, I don't think it's healing
See me darling see me can you see me bleeding?
Feel me and you'll know my pain is not receding

"Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Hold your head high so you don't get hurt"

"Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words," and you said
"Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Hold your head high so you don't get hurt"

I listened to you darling, now I feel like dying
I don't even know why I fucking bothered trying
I'm sorry darling, I wasted your precious time
But the murder of a heart isn't a fucking crime
But I can feel the casualty inside my chest
This scheme has prematurely laid my heart at rest
But don't you mind, you're fine just go about your days
Eventually the memories will begin to fade

Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Hold your head high so you don't get hurt
Track Name: On & On
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
The never ending cycle of me being too afraid
Resulting in me never ever ever getting a date

I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know what to do
I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know what to do

Because on and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
The never ending cycle of me being too afraid
Resulting in me never ever ever getting a date

I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know what to do
I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't know what to do

Because on and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes

She probably doesn't even know I exist, and if she does, she probably thinks that I'm a piece of shit
I'm having trouble doping with it so I'll just try to pretend that I don't give a shit

I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't know

Because on and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
On and on and on and on and on and on it goes
Track Name: Jeopardy!
This uncertainty is eating at me, and I can't relax
This uncertainty is killing me, and I can't relax

Life is essentially
Just a big game of Jeopardy!
What is to be killed randomly unaccomplished and lonely?
Just to exist is taking a risk
You can't predict the outcome of even the closest moment
Track Name: Pigs (Two Different Ones)

Track Name: You, Me & My Dog
Just you, me and my dog are all I need to live long
Just you, me and my dog are all I need to live long
Just you, me and my dog are all I need to live long
Just you, me and my dog are all I need to live long

You don't care that we don't see eye to eye all the time
And sometimes I forget to call
And I know that I am hard to see
But I know that you still love me

Just you, me and my dog are all I need to live long
Just you, me and my dog are all I need to live long
Just you, me and my dog are all I need to live long
Just you, me and my dog are all I need to live long
Track Name: Sheep
My brain is dead
I can't rest my head
My comfy bed is basically pointless

My mind's not even occupied
The clock ticks by
But I'm still wide awake

Even the sheep are all asleep
The alarm clock beeps
Yeah, so much for sleep

For sleeeeppp,
For sleep
For sleeeeeppp
For sleep
FOR SLEEEEEEEPPPP
FOORRR SLLEEEEPPPPP
FOOORRRRR SLLLEEEEPPPP
FFFOOOOOOOORRRRR SSSSLLLEEEEEEPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Track Name: Montgomery
What could be the odds that this would happen to me,
Driving down the road in the middle of the week?
It's raining pretty violently, it's getting hard to see
This storm's about to pull me right up out of my seat

Just a few more miles, man, I can make it home
It's getting really hard, yeah I'm swerving off the road
I try to call for help, but it seems I'm on my own
My fate's appearing dark but I'm still holding on to hope

I love you dearly Mom, and I love you dearly, Dad
There's no doubt in my mind this situation's getting bad
Let's focus on the bright side, man, life's been pretty rad
There's nothing we can do so what's the point in being sad?
Track Name: Fish in the Sea
I'm one of the other fish in the sea your mom told you all about
Right now I'm just blowing bubbles and swimming upside down and hanging out

I'd make me the happiest fish in the sea if you'd swim along with me, we could hang out at my anemone and enjoy each other's fishy company

It makes me the saddest fish in the sea to see you swimming around with him
Yeah, it makes me the saddest fish in the sea knowing he has possession of your fin
It makes me the saddest fish in the sea knowing that that could have possibly been me
But I couldn't grow a tail and ask you to come along for a dip
I'm supposed to be a fish in the sea, so why did I act like a pussy cat?
Track Name: Fun in the Sun
Fun in the sun, sun, sun
Fun in the sun, sun, sun
Fun in the sun, sun, sun
Fun in the sun, sun, sun

There's probably nothing that I could do
To get with you, get with you
There's probably nothing that I could do
To get with you, get with you

Fun in the sun, sun, sun
Fun in the sun, sun, sun
Fun in the sun, sun, sun
Fun in the sun, sun, sun

There's probably nothing that I could do
To get with you, get with you
There's probably nothing that I could do
To get with you, get with you

Fun in the sun, sun, sun
Fun in the sun, sun, sun
I'm just a bum in the sun, no fun, no sun, no fun, no fun
No fun in the sun

There's probably nothing that I could do
To get with you, get with you
There's probably nothing that I could do
To get with you, get with you

In the end I'll never ever ever win
I'm way too lacking in my self confidence
He beat me to the chase and now I fucking hate myself
I wonder if I ever ever had a chance
Or maybe she dismissed me at the first glance
He's a good guy and all, but I hate to see her with him

Fun in the sun, sun, sun
Fun in the sun, sun, sun
I'm just a bum in the sun, no fun, no sun, no fun, no fun
No fun in the sun
Track Name: Outer Space
We're surrounded by geography
But disregard it constantly
We only concern ourselves with the place in which we live

But Planet Earth is really big, Planet Earth is big
Planet Earth is really big, Planet Earth is big

In the scope of human evidence, we're virtually insignificant
But that doesn't stop the emphasis that we place upon ourselves

But history is really big, history is big
History is really big, history is big

The trivial experiences that we centralize are hardly there,
It won't be long before we die and they vanish in the air

But for now we all must coexist
'Cause we're playing on the same court
So there's no sense in holding a grudge
When life is really short

Like I wonder why you lied to me, but I could kind of tell
You were smiling behind the counter top, but I hope that you're doing well

And outer space is really big, outer space is big
Outer space is really big, outer space is big

'Cause I have come to realize that all the shining stars in the sky
Can symbolize many aspects of life

And outer space is really big, outer space is big
Outer space is really big, outer space is big
Track Name: Soaring
When I'm with you we are soaring from everything
We are flying inches from the sun
We're secluded from everyone and I know
Everything's gonna be okay

Now we're falling from the clouds
And there's nothing that can stop us now
You're losing all your breath
And I'm holding on to our death, and I know
Nothing will be okay
And I know nothing will be okay
Track Name: Darling (Single Version)
"Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Hold your head high so you don't get hurt"

Hear me darling, hear me can you hear me screaming?
My wound is getting bigger, I don't think it's healing
See me darling see me can you see me bleeding?
Feel me and you'll know my pain is not receding

"Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Hold your head high so you don't get hurt"

"Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words," and you said
"Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Hold your head high so you don't get hurt"

I listened to you darling, now I feel like dying
I don't even know why I fucking bothered trying
I'm sorry darling, I wasted your precious time
But the murder of a heart isn't a fucking crime
But I can feel the casualty inside my chest
This scheme has prematurely laid my heart at rest
But don't you mind, you're fine just go about your days
Eventually the memories will begin to fade

Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Listen to me darling as I speak these words
Hold your head high so you don't get hurt
