Track Name: Strange House
I live in a strange house
this ain't my room, it's just one I rent out
and I'm pretty far from my home
traded a warm place for one that is cold

I can't stand to hear it
the sound of her voice on the phone, I deny it
and I take a walk every night
most people don't know it, but I used to lie

Lately, I've been so sad
never was a problem, but now it is bad
and I think I just need a girlfriend
a girl who has a lot going on in her head

I live in a strange house
this ain't my room, it's just one I rent out
but hopefully one day soon
I won't feel that
I won't feel that
I won't feel that
I won't feel that bad
Track Name: Bad Habits
I've gotten into some bad habits
I drink every night, I smoke cigarettes
and I say, "yes" when I should say, "no"
and I stay in one place 'cause I don't know where to go

I don't take too many showers
I walk aimlessly for a couple hours
and I only call you when I'm really drunk
but you know that I am, so you don't pick up

my hamper's empty, floor's full of laundry
I have a problem putting the past behind me
I wear a short-sleeve when it's stupid cold
but it's warm where I'm from, I wanna go home

I talk to too many girls I don't really know
it fucks with my love-life's flow
I write songs about others experiences
'cause my life's boring, I don't know how to live

Instead of buying gas, I buy a round
just hoping it's a way for my mind to be found
but if anything it just gets further lost
but at this point, fuck it, I'll buy another shot

I deny phone calls from bill collectors
girl walks all over me, but somehow I let her
I know it's wrong, but I keep it going
I prefer to stay sad if it keeps me from growing
Track Name: Slow
I don't really know where I'm going
but wherever I am now, it's snowing
and it's coming down nice, the mounds seems to grow
well, wherever I'm going, I'm going slow

I don't really know what I'm drinking
a friend had a cup and he hands it to me
saying he got a call and that he had to go
well, whatever I'm drinking, I'm drinking slow

I don't really know what I'm eating
when I first smelled it, I was salivating
and now that I've got it, my expectations are low
well, whatever I'm eating, I'm eating slow

I don't really know that I'm writing
my mind is empty, but my hand is gliding
and when I read all my words, what the meaning is, I don't know
well, whatever I'm writing, I'm writing slow

(whistle)

I don't really know what I'm singing
before I even realize my words leave me
and sung into a mic, and announced to the show
well, whatever I'm singing, I'm singing slow

I don't really know what I'm reading
it's a book that requires a lot of believing
and that's hard for me, considering I'm alone
well, whatever I'm reading, I'm reading it slow
Track Name: That's Where I Went Wrong
As I'm walking down this road
I'm thinking about how it all looks fake
and as I'm getting drunk
I'm thinking about all of my mistakes
I'm a coward, yeah what else can I say?
and that's where I went wrong, being too scared, now I drink my nights away

And as I watch this movie
oh, how I wish I was in it, right there
'cause as I look around
I realize there's nothing for me here
i'm an idiot, yeah it's too much to explain
and that's where I went wrong, had a good life, but threw it away

Now I want it back, but it's too late
now I want it back, but it's far away
had a heart attack, now I'm in a grave
had a heart attack, now I'll never see your face

And as you're walking toward me
I turn my back and walk the other way
I don't really feel like fighting
so I'll put it off for another day
I'm a pansy, yeah always hiding my eyes
and that's where I went wrong, had my heart broken one too many times

And as I write this letter
my mind wonders and flys off into space
I close my eyes to focus
but all I can see is your laughing face
I'm a loner, always holding onto the past
and that's where I went wrong, now I'm watching my life run away real fast

Now I want it back, but it's too late
now I want it back, but it's far away
had a heart attack, now I'm in a grave
had a heart attack, now I'll never see your face
Track Name: I Remember The Last Time
I remember the last time you said you didn't like me
I was chunkier then
now I look at your today and realize that I
was a sad man

I remember the last time my daddy hit me
I was sicker then
didn't want to take some pills, so he smacked
me and sent me to bed

But now, I'm sucking them all down
maybe too many, but who's keeping count?
when I go looking for it, I find my head in the clouds
and I learned to love the sky more than the ground

I remember the last time you played me a song
I was trying to move on
but then you said those words with a melody tide to them
telling me you are gone

I remember the last time I took a shot of whiskey
I was fiendin' for one
it calmed me down, but left the frown on my
face as i walk late through midtown

But now, I'm sucking them all down
maybe too many, but who's keeping count
when I go looking for it, I find my head in the clouds
and I learned to love the sky more than the ground
and I learned to love the sky more than the ground
and I learned to love the sky more than the ground
and I learned to love the sky more than the ground
Track Name: Think & Pout
The film has just started
I am running out to buy me some more chocolate
come back, the theater's all black
I can't see where I last laid my coat at

Took a seat next to something sweet
she is bootlegging the movie to make some money
movie ends, searching for my cardigan
it is lost, so I guess I'll just be cold again

The bar, drinking something hard
starting to pull my scab crusts apart
bleeding, but still reading
way too deep into what you're possibly thinking

Walk home, sprain my ankle
walking drunk and tripping in a pothole
lay down, roommates are too loud
so I just think and think and think and think and think & pout
Track Name: If
If my mother dies
I'll be by her side
all of her words were right

And if my puppy dies
then of course I will cry
he's been my best friend most nights

If I can not sing
then please won't you tell me
I'm sick of being something I ain't meant to be

And if you're getting sleepy
pour yourself some coffee
you told me you're trying not to sleep

And if you have tears in your eyes
I'll do my best to make them dry
I fucking hate seeing you cry

And if your hand's getting cold
it won't be hard for me to hold
I'm scared to ask and never bold

And if I tell you I like you
then please believe it to be true
I'm only telling you 'cause I don't know what else to do

I don't know how to end this song
I got no words, so I'll just hum
(hum)

(humming)

(more humming)
Track Name: What Is Your Name?
What is your name?
I know you had no say in it
we just need something to mark your grave
what is your name?

And what's your favorite song?
I'll write it down so when you die
We'll gather all your friends and scream along
what's your favorite song?

And what's your favorite shirt?
We'll put it on you so you look good
in your box that's covered deep in dirt
what's your favorite shirt?

And should we be crying?
'cause when you and us were hanging out
we were always having such a great time
so should we be crying?

And where are you now?
I bet you're off somewhere a-laughin'
but one thing's for sure, you're not around
where are you now?

And what do you see?
I know that you killed yourself
but did you wind up where you wanted to be?
what do you see?

And how do you sleep?
I hope that you're doing better
'cause I've been having trouble counting sheep
how do you sleep?

And what was your name?
I know you had no say in it
we just need something to mark your grave
so tell me again, what was your name?
Track Name: Phlegm
I'm coughing up phlegm
I was healthier then, but now I'm sick
I smoke too many cigarettes

I paint a picture
I read some literature of something that ain't true
a fairytale she said that she knew

I write a letter
I send it to her and quickly decide
it probably was a waste of my time

[this verse in not in the recording because I was drunk and forgot to sing it]
I'm missing my home
looking at a photo of a desert sunset
a friend of mine sent me in a text

I'm really hungry
all I got is candy that my momma sent to me
I don't have enough money to eat

I buy me a beer
been drinking straight all year, going for the long haul
there's nothing else to do in Omaha

I'm trying to sleep
laying under my sheets I begin to sing a song
and all the words describe everything wrong

I begin to see
it's not what's happen to me, it's what hasn't happened yet
I'm sure it'll suck, but I hope for the best
oh, I hope for the best
oh, I hope for the best
oh, I hope for the best
