Track Name: Boring (Victor Florence)
i want to be the kind of friend who can offer you cheap cocaine
in exchange for you to spend some time with me
but i am boring

i want to be the kind of friend who can offer you vicodin and pbr
and a yard to barf it up
but i am boring
Track Name: So Fortunate (TV SETS)
listen, they'll say it and leave
if you miss a word, you just might believe
practice what you wanted to say
when the time came, you swept it all away

if you're down tonight
and it makes you feel alright
you can fall for them all when they say

i want nothing more than to be the one
to hold open all your doors
jacket in the mud for you to step over
to be so fortunate

risk it, they'll always leave
it's just vague enough that you might believe
reached out to grab the reins
pulled them back and nothing came

if you wait
until its far too late, then hesitate
you will fall for them all when they say

i want nothing more than to be the one
to hold open all your doors
jacket in the mud for you to step over
to be so fortunate

know i shouldn't laugh this off but you can bet that i will
i shouldn't shrug this off but you know that i will
Track Name: Aimless (johnny goth)
i'm a little dizzy and i can't think straight
took a few too many, i'm on my way

it's too late now looking back
no regret until i crash
on the road to nowhere
i can't breathe, there's no air
i can't find where home is
i don't remember where i live

i can't find where home is
i don't remember where i live
Track Name: Boy Meets World (Tapes and Tubes)
corey don't let shawn leave home
he's gone to paris, texas
i'm afraid he rides at night alone
without his moonbeam necklace

topi oh! little corey
just left here with quite a story
said he was going to be in texas tonight
out of mind and out of sight

shawn he don't understand
why no one still gives a damn
but if he's gonna grow into a man
he's got to let go of corey's hand
Track Name: Back (i know who you are and you are nothing)
one step forward, two steps back
Track Name: Like Foxes in Fields (Rest You Sleeping Giant)
like foxes
we hide
what we know

we know nothing
or so we say

if i told you
you'd weep and cry

cause i
sinned greatly
and i lied

i don't have the strength
to come clean

cause I'm a fox
waiting in the field

hiding my secrets
too scared to come dry
Track Name: 6th Ave (Alternate Mix) (BIRCH BARKS)
now that i have found the real thing
going back is hard
you were always smarter
making choices isn't easy
not afraid to hurt you

here alone
you won't find me in the lake
Track Name: Keys and Strings (ezra triste)
nobody taught me how to die
i had to learn myself and to turn myself
from someone who needed help
it’s not like i meant it
with keys and strings we build our homes
we sit in the living room
and get drunk
i had to hurt myself
i had to jump
can i see where it stings?
and tell you of the pretty things
that i’ve never seen
i’ve heard the stories
but they always lose me
with keys and strings we build our homes
we run to the bathroom
and throw up
i couldn’t live like this
long enough
i couldn’t live like this
Track Name: The End is Near (Decent Sweets)
she took me out into the hallway and looked me in the eye
she took me out into the hallway and looked me in the eye
told me to turn around three times and put my hands on my head
but nothing happened so i asked her what the game was
she looked me in the eye
she looked me in the eye and said

the end is near, the end is near i promise

i said "what do you mean, i don't want to die"
she said "don't play dumb with me" and looked up to the sky
i laughed so hard and tried to put my hand on her shoulder
she brushed it off, looked at my face, and told me i looked older
and then she said

the end is near, the end is near i promise

the end is near, the end is near i promise
