Track Name: Quarterlife
Gave the government all I had.
Asked for help from mom and dad.
Younger one ain't doin' too bad.

Angel Angel, help me bleed.
Won't you roll the dice for me.
Dart across a busy street.

Jesus Jesus, Have I done wrong?
Put all my problems in all my songs.
Where will I go when I'm gone?

I made it out to the ocean.
I dug my feet in the sand.
And though I'm trying to raise hell.
Still don't know who I am.

Haven't been my greatest self.
I'll admit but won't ask for help.
Afraid to find I'm someone else.

Father Father, when you were young
were you certain and were you strong?
Sometimes I feel that, just not for long.

I made it out to the ocean.
I dug my feet in the sand.
And though I'm trying to raise hell.
Still don't know who I am.
Track Name: Seasick
seasick, come down, breathe deep, breathe loud
my face, green now, fed up, face down
wooh
make love, be loud, help me, leave now
brown hair, red gown, show me, shown out
wooh
been gone, too long, I left, I'm wrong
reached out, came back, some hurt, some laugh
wooh
short trip, short leash, last call, more drinks
grown up, calm down, new digs, new town
wooh
more time, hold back, good point, react
hands up, lungs loud, sit up, calm down
wooh
Track Name: Blimp
If I run into a wall, will you open my eyes?
I've been searching for awhile trying to find a beam of light.
I've been crashing going nowhere - think I'll take this out to sea.
When a final wave comes crashing let it crash right over me.

When the creatures come a knockin', will they give me to breathe?
Will they cover up my eyesight, will they put me on my knees?
We all know I tend to worry. These are notions that arise.
These are ways I've gone on coping with a temperamental life.

Is it all that you want it to be?
Alone, in your made up company.
Could you call like you promised to me?
I'm alone in your made up company.

I've been thinking for awhile what is certain anymore?
There's my parents and my hunger. There's a window and a door.
If the past is always written and the future hangs around
then my body is a blimp and I cannot see the ground.

Is it all that you want it to be?
Left alone in your made up company.
Could you call like you promised to me?
I'm alone in your made up company.
Track Name: Pinecones
Pinecones on the motorhomes
big brigade, cavalcade
I wanna be somewhere else.

Handshakes, they feel like earthquakes.
I got reasons I can't explain.
I don't wanna be myself.

Cell phone the whole ride home.
Stop and smoke, carny folk
I wanna be somewhere else.

Eugene. Buy some blue jeans.
Put on weight, stomach ache.
I don't wanna be myself.

Road signs feel like fault lines.
Drive so fast, make 'em shake.
I wanna be somewhere else.
