Track Name: Loveless
"One more drink" he said "before I leave this place"
As the taste hits his tongue he tries to control his face
He stumbles out the door and checks the time
It's been five months straight with Alice on his mind

"But to be alone is to be strong"
He says as he's curled over the toilet bowl at home
His heart hasn't touched love for so damn long
So he decides to write a broken song with a broken tone

About being Loveless
Loveless
Loveless
Because he can't have Alice again

The sun peers through and intrudes his eyelids
He's not ready for the day so he starts autopilot
He goes to work and sees Joan who smiles
She says "maybe meet me at my place in a little while"

And he thinks because why not
But deep down he knows it's not really what he really wants
He goes and dislikes what she's got
And he says keep going but he wishes she would stop

"But to be alone is to be strong"
He says as he's curled over the toilet bowl at home
His heart hasn't touched love for so damn long
So he decides to write a broken song with a broken tone

About being Loveless
Loveless
Loveless
Because he can't have Alice again
Track Name: Another Day
My red eyes they hurt
I'm hung over again
I can't remember much
But I think I lost my only friend

Yea it's just another day in my head
I don't know if I'm ever gonna make it outta my bed
Yea, no I think I might just stay
'Cause I don't really wanna take on the day

My cheeks still sting
She slapped me in face
I don't remember much
But I think I made a big mistake

And it's just another day in my head
I don't know if I'm ever gonna make it outta my bed
Yea, no I think I might just stay
'Cause I don't really wanna take on the day
Track Name: Morning Coffee
I saw a play today
A social commentary about how we live our lives
But the only thing that it got right
Was when the main character dies

I saw the news today
To see how the world is goin' to shit
But I ate my cereal and thought about it
It's always been doin' this

So I get out of bed
If only for my morning coffee
Or the episode of Seinfeld on at ten
'Cause most of my days are inconsequential
Or at least I perceive them to be

And the instagram feed shows lives that don't exist
Yet have authority over my fragile happiness
Because we're all shown pictures of who we're supposed to be
Without regard to our own true beauty

So I get into bed today
To end a day I'll probably forget I lived anyway
'Cause when I'm finally layin' in my grave
Both my best and worst days will be erased away

So I get out of bed
If only for my morning coffee
Or the episode of Seinfeld on at ten
'Cause most of my days are inconsequential
Or at least I perceive them to be
Which is not very beneficial
Especially to the small optimist in me
Track Name: Glow in the Dark Stars
She's got glow in the dark stars
That hang above her bed
And she pretends she's lyin'
On the moon instead

But she knows
Yea she knows
It's all her head

She gets her daily fix
on the street of crime
The bags grow under her teary eyes
As she spends her last dime

'Cause she knows
Yea she knows
She's running out of time


He's got tailored suits
That he never wears
And a gentle heart
But no one seems to care

But he knows
Yea he knows
There's someone out there somewhere

His bed is two sizes two big
It's always cold
He prays at night
For someone he can hold

'Cause he knows
Yea he knows
His hopes will get old


Her nails are chipped from nervously picking
His knees are scraped from always tripping
On love

She can't sleep nights 'cause she's top busy thinking
His days are dark 'cause his soul is sinking
From love
They're both in need for some love
Track Name: Taking and Giving
Pillow-less sleep under restless stars
A mind undone by a traitors heart
A battleground of wits and games
Blurred lines of losses and gains

Mistakes I'm no stranger to
Inherently destined to be a fool
The heart stronger than common sense
Forever stuck in the past not the present tense

Memories they'll all remain
Romanticized and glorified
Completed but constantly replayed
My pride both proud and mortified
All the same

The spaces in my fingers is very vast
For opportunities slip, slip right past
The longing for a sense of connection
The desire for hope and redemption

I'm a victim to a fools life
Incapable of doing what is right
Lost in a boundless void
No light, no form, no sense, no noise

Memories they'll all remain
Romanticized and glorified
Completed but constantly replayed
My pride both proud and mortified
All the same

Lost lost with the horizon on all sides
Floating with no sail amongst the waves of life
The heartbreak of love and confusion of living
Inconsequential existence of taking and giving

Memories they'll all remain
Romanticized and glorified
Completed but constantly replayed
My pride both proud and mortified
All the same
Track Name: Richard Scary
He's afraid of the constant arrival of daylight
And the awkward situations of everyday life
He sweats when he's asked a question
After the first few hundred times he learned his lesson

And he says the world is scary
Just like the trek it takes to get beyond a pretty woman's blouse
So he stays locked inside his old decrepit house

And he has a broken kitchen sink that he needs take apart
But he's afraid he'll break it more so he's afraid to even start
His toilet won't flush so he never seems to go
He never has guests so he watches the dust grow

And he says his house is scary
It's where his wife and kids would play but now it represents gloom
So he stays locked inside his house inside his lonely bedroom

And he says he locks his door at all times just to be safe
But he knows death will find you no matter the time or place
And he keeps the light on to control the time of day
He can't decide where to go so he decides just to stay

But he says his room is scary
His memories still haunt him all of the time
So he stays locked inside his mind, inside his room, inside his house

But he says his mind is scary
From all the things that it carries
And it carries him away
And it carries him away
And it carries him away
And it carries him away
Track Name: Montana
There's gonna be a solar eclipse somewhere out west
You can see it in the east but they said out there it's best
I thought about telling you cuz I know Montana was always in your dreams
But I don't really want you going unless your going to go with me
So I'll just keep it to myself

I saw a mom in the park, with a stroller, watching her kids play
From behind I swore it was you, I felt my heart fly away
For it was then that I saw what it would look like if I had my kids with you
You were never sure about having kids but I'm sure of the great job you'll do
Even if it's with someone else

They say I'll move on one day and find somebody new
But they say you never forget your first, turns out that was you
So if this song ever gets made and it reaches your ears
Just know I've been thinking of you all through the years
Until then you won't know how I felt
So I'll just keep it to myself

There's gonna be a solar eclipse somewhere out west
You can see it in the east but they said out there it's best
