Mitch This is my favorite Wavves record.

No, but in all seriousness,these guys fucking rock and this is a HUGE step forward from their last record "Peking Plaza". Anybody who is a fan of Wavves will definitely enjoy this record. The guitar parts are incredibly catchy and the lyrics are extremely relatable. I'm excited to see what the future holds for The Jesses! Favorite track: Girl of My Dreams.

about

I started recording this album very soon after we released "Peking Plaza." This is a concept album, it's a pretty bitchy concept, but it's basically the story of a mental downfall that resulted from "insomnia and unrequited love," to be lame as fuck and quote my own lyrics, and a very small portion of a story with a girl. This story is now much longer and more complicated and there's more to tell for future songs I suppose!

Upon the release of this album we are breaking up as a band.
Thanks to everyone who has shown us love and support.

Very special thanks to:
Janie Waddle
Mary Catherine Miller (who also accidentally named this record)
Papa Harris for helping mix and master, this record would sound a lot different and a lot shittier without his help. I learned a lot during the process of mixing and mastering this record and for that I am eternally grateful.

Track Name: I Can't Sleep at Night
I try, I try
I try, I try
I can't sleep at night, I can't sleep at night
I can't sleep at night, I can't sleep at night

I try, I try
I try, I try
I can't sleep at night, I can't sleep at night
I can't sleep at night, I can't sleep at night
Track Name: "Look at Us Then, and Look at Us Now..."
psychedelic ass instrumental shit are the lyrics to this fuckin' song
satan can take the form of a beautiful woman...
Track Name: I Won't Try to Let You Go
I won't
No I won't
I won't
No I won't
Try to let you go
Try to let you go

And I don't know why I won't let you go
'Cause I believe in placebo,
and maybe if I tried hard enough, I could think my way right out of
my obsession with you

'Cause I've been suffering way too long,
but the power of the mind is strong
and maybe if I invested enough mental energy in it
I could think my way out of depression
and halt this mental recession,
have a positive shift of perception
but my brain still wants you here

I have a family history of clinical depression and I'll tell you what
I'll tell you what
I've perfected the recipe for inducing depressive tendencies,
it's a perfect blend of just two simple ingredients:
insomnia and unrequited love
insomnia and unrequited love
insomnia and unrequited love
insomnia and unrequited love

I have a family history of clinical depression and I'll tell you what
I'll tell you what
I've perfected the recipe for inducing depressive tendencies,
it's a perfect blend of insomnia and unrequited love
insomnia and unrequited love
insomnia and unrequited love
insomnia and unrequited love
unrequited love
Track Name: Girl of My Dreams
I got a call from you
a little unexpected gift
my heart jumped with joy
I'll see you in a while
and it made me smile,
it made me smile

I said "meet me at the park,"
Your car was parked in the dark
We stood and told stories
As I broke up the weed
We were laughing at everything
And you pulled out your false teeth
And then we smoked the bowl
Then took shelter from the cold
Now the girl of my dreams
Is sitting right in front of me
She's up in the driver's seat
While I'm in the back smoking weed
But I couldn't feel any more alone,
And I'm ignoring the existence of my phone
'Cause when I'm in your presence
I don't want any distractions
'Cause you deserve every inch
Of my attention
And I don't wanna disrespect
Your goddess-esque elegance
Track Name: Let Down
No matter how hard I try, and despite the fact that I have been here an interminable amount of time,
I can't seem to make myself comfortable in the corner of the room
But what you gonna do when that's when you were chained?

And I feel all let down

It's so unfair to me, because if anything I was the first in line to see
the movie premiere at midnight

And I feel all let down
'Cause I stayed in town, yeah I stuck around the night the film was announced
'Cause I stayed in town, yeah I stuck around the night the film was announced

Every time someone cuts in line
I'm bothered but I won't try
to make a scene by exposing them
Even though it directly
Affects me
So I'll just silently condemn
and you won't hear me say a word about it
About it
About it
I always seem to find myself in the right place, but at the wrong time
In this particular situation
Maybe if I'd just endure some confrontation
I'd cut down on the sleepless nights
And finally settle this internal fight
If I'd just secure my place in line
And I could finally be happy inside
And I could finally be happy inside
And I could finally be happy inside
And I could finally be happy inside

ladadaoooeeeeooooladaaadddaaaoooeeeeoooo

HAPPY
HAPPYY
HAPPYYY
HAPPYYYY

And I don't know what to do with myself anymore,
Dissolving at the core
And my brain's being molded like clay by sleep deprivation and self-deprecation (SELF-MEDICATION) now
And I could name every flaw and everything that I hate about myself
About myself
But I won't change
It seems that I can manipulate myself into finding an excuse for everything

And I feel all let down

When you wanna tear out your heart now
'Cause you feel all let down
When you wanna tear out your heart now
'Cause you feel all left out

When you're feeling like death
and you've lost all of your breath
and you're living in regret

When it haunts you every day
and you try to get away
but you just can't escape

And I feel all let down
Track Name: Cold Feet
Well I'm a lion now
And I've just figured out
What I've got to do
To get the hell out of the zoo

But I'm the lion in
The Wizard of Oz
And I'm devoid of courage,
And I'm off to see the wonderful Wizard of Oz
In hopes that he will grant me
What I need to take the steps in conquering all that is conquering me

As I prepare for this quest
I'm hoping for the best
That the wizard will happily grant my request
My request
My request
My request

And my cold feet, and my cold feet, and my cold feet
And my cold feet, and my cold feet, and my cold feet
And my cold feet, they won't stop me, not my cold feet
And my cold feet, they won't stop me, not my cold feet

And my cold feet, and my cold feet, and my cold feet
And my cold feet, and my cold feet, and my cold feet
And my cold feet, they won't stop me, not my cold feet
And my cold feet, they won't stop me, not my cold feet

And my cold feet, and my cold feet, and my cold feet
And my cold feet, and my cold feet, and my cold feet
And my cold feet, they won't stop me, not my cold feet
And my cold feet, they won't stop me, not my cold feet
Track Name: Key to Happiness
At first I was thinking of you 'cause I couldn't get to sleep at night
Now I can't get to sleep at night 'cause I'm thinking of you

You're the only thing this world has to offer that's more beautiful than death
You're more beautiful than death
And what a tease, I've stumbled upon the key to happiness
And it's being waved all in front of my face, and all over his lips
And it's too late
It's too late
It's too late
It's too late
It's too late
It's too late
The key is just out of my reach
I said the key is just out of my reach

And I've got to let all these feelings out, I tried...
And we had plans to hang out, but you bailed and you lied...
And I don't wanna call you out 'cause I've idealized
Every single aspect of you in my mind
'Cause it's about goddamn time that I showed you my
My over-obsessive fucked up mind
My over-obsessive fucked up mind
My over-obsessive fucked up mind

And I've got to let all these feelings out, I tried...
And we had plans to hang out, but you bailed and you lied...
And I don't wanna call you out 'cause I've idealized
Every single aspect of you in my mind
'Cause it's about goddamn time that I showed you my
My over-obsessive fucked up mind
My over-obsessive fucked up mind
My over-obsessive fucked up mind
Track Name: Believe Me, It's a Complicated Situation
Well I just can't keep kicking the can
Six inches in front of me on the cracked rough gravel street
Then re-approaching it with a false sense of dignity
Only to, yet again, just kick it right in front of my path

It's finally my time to shine
If I fuck this up this time, well I'll die on the inside (honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm...)
I can't keep holding this in me
And simultaneously
Maintain my sanity,
So please meet up with me for me
So I'm coming out with all of this
Even if it
Puts our friendship at risk,
I guess I'll jeopardize it
Track Name: Forest
My mind is a forest and you're running through
Every day I am pondering you
The idea of you and me makes me happy
But you've parked your car right out in the street
And you're concealing yourself in my trees
'Cause you're just stopping by to smoke some weed
Then leave
And I'm holding these unfulfilled fantasies
Of just driving around and exchanging our points of view and developing each others' thoughts
And I'm plagued by the insides of my own head
This quixotic thinking's taunting me once again
And the well runs so deep that I can't see the end of it

My mind is a forest and you're running through
My mind is a forest and you're running through
My mind is a forest and you're running through

My heart is a forest and you're pumping through
My heart is a forest and you're pumping through
My heart is a forest and you're pumping through

My veins are all forests and you're flowing through
My veins are all forests and you're flowing through
My veins are all forests, you're the blood flowing through
Track Name: Honestly I'm Dying on the Inside
As I'm walking through the trees and explaining to Nathan what you mean to me, I kind of want to die
In spite of my incompetence, I'm losing all the confidence that I never really had in the first place

Thinking 'bout a year ago when I could have gained it all, but threw it all away
Now I'm planning in my head how to jump a spot ahead, and what I'm gonna say

I can't help, no I can't help
I can't help, no I can't help
I can't help, no I can't help but care
And I can't help, no I can't help
I can't help, no I can't help
I can't help, no I can't help but care

And as I'm lying in the night and losing my mind,
I realize that I've gotta try
I'm staring at my popcorn ceiling, experiencing all these intense feelings
At the very least, I've got to try

I can't help, no I can't help
I can't help, no I can't help
I can't help, no I can't help but care
And I can't help, no I can't help
I can't help, no I can't help
I can't help, no I can't help but care

When all in all you wanna die, all in all you wanna die, all in all you wanna dieeeee
When all in all you wanna die, all in all you wanna die, all in all you wanna dieeeee
When all in all you wanna die, all in all you wanna die, all in all you wanna dieeeee
When all in all you wanna die, all in all you wanna die, all in all you wanna die when all in all you wanna die when allll innn alll youuuu waaaannnaaa diieeeeeee

I can't help, no I can't help
I can't help, no I can't help
I can't help, no I can't help but hate myself
And I can't help no I can't help,
I can't help I can't fucking help
I can't help no I can't help but hate myself

And I prepared myself for rejection, not to amplify the transcendence that could possibly occur if you felt the same way,
But 'cause I knew that I wasn't good enough for you to go out of your way of your life for me, but I guess we'll see
Then I let it out after so, so long,
You said "that's so sweet, and I like your songs,"
But I pretty much knew
What was coming next
You said, "it's getting late, and I should probably go, I gotta charge my phone and my mom's expecting me back home."
Me back home.
I got back in the car and said, "Well that was brief. When will the weight of the world be lifted off of me?"
Of me?
And Paul said, "man, it's all okay, you really did the right thing at the end of the day."
At the end of the day
But what hurt so much is that you were so cool, you didn't freak out or treat me like a fool
And that's why I love you
That's why I love you
That's why I'm so in love with you,
Well that's why I love you

Well we're only set apart by our intelligence,
We just had to make sense of all this shit around us
Around us
So why'd we have to go and screw it all up?
'Cause we were only made to eat and fuck
But got all caught up in emotions and stuff

'Cause honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside
Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside
Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside
Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside

'Cause honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside
Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside
Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside
Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside

Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside
Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside
Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside
Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside

Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside
Honestly I'm dying on the inside, I'm, honestly I'm dying on the inside
