Track Name: All This Restraint
I see it as a girl splayed out before me
I see it as a rule that I’m afraid to break
There’s a glass wall of restraint in my face
Saying you can’t have it: You can look, but you can’t touch.

My life is just a walk through a hallway of plexiglass
And out of the windows I see pictures of the nineties
And kids in the street, riding skateboards, no worries
And you can’t have it: You can look, but you can’t touch.

And all this restraint stops me from doing what looks fun
Been jumping off the bridge all ‘cause society told me too
And if I conform I will lose what’s special inside me
But if I don’t society will reject my application for a normal guy.

The kids in the movies always seem so free
Where’s the hours of homework and sections where they watch T.V.?
The kids in the movies always go to parties
And they don’t get fucked up but they always seem so happy.

Our generation has a lack of spirit
We don’t cause any problems, but look at the sixties
And discontented youth lets fuck things up
All hyped on hormones, no worries
And we can have it if we realize rules don’t exist.

And all this restraint stops me from doing what looks fun
I’ve been jumping off the bridge all ‘cause society told me too
And if I conform I will lose what’s special inside me
But if I don’t society will reject my application for a normal guy.

The kids in the movies always seem so free
Where’s the hours of homework and sections where they watch T.V.?
The kids in the movies always go to parties
And they don’t get fucked up but they always seem so happy.
Track Name: The Forest
Get your hopes up in a dizzy haze
Keep your balance and walk through the maze
Thoughts of her smile and of her frown
Yeah she’s the only one who can bring me down tonight.

On this night there could be two extremes
Either she’ll say no and haunt my dreams
In cold sweat I awake in screams
Or she’ll take my hand and we will go from there.

Aren’t you lonely at home?
The heat of your parents is warm
Though it’s cold out here
There are no surveillance cameras
So you are free to do what they say is wrong
You are free to do what they say is wrong.

And don’t you feel it in the forest
There are no such things as rules
Just come with me this one time
And you will never feel lost again.

My friends they try to keep it cool
But we never learned how to do this in school
Their awkward charm might get them confident girls
And maybe tonight they will finally find true love.

I can’t allow this night to exist within itself
Meaningless faces on a dusty shelf
I’m not trying to make her a trophy
But no one is keeping score for me anyway.

Aren’t you lonely at home?
The heat of your parents is warm
Though it’s cold out here
There are no surveillance cameras
So you are free to do what they say is wrong
You are free to do what they say is wrong.

And don’t you feel it in the forest
There are no such things as rules
Just come with me this one time
And you will never feel lost again
Track Name: Darkroom Fantasy
Groggy morning skip breakfast sleepwalk your way to school
Enter into photography class because you want to be cool.
Go into the darkroom and enlarge your negatives
There’s one of a random guy I wonder how he lives.
Develop, stop-bath fix and wash, head in your arms you watch the clocks
You’re feeling sick and dizzy like a spinning gear in a machine.

But that girl’s smile in French class will at least get me through my next class
And that girl’s smile in French class makes me smile in the darkroom.
And that girl’s smile in French class will at least get me through my next class
And that girl’s smile in French class makes me smile in the darkroom.
Smile in the darkroom…

You step outside, your eyes adjust, your pupils contract like a camera lens
You walk through ghosts of students and teachers you walk right through their skin.
You step through the lobby take a right down the stairs then a right to the bottom floor
A mild excitement sweeps over you as you reach to open the door
She’s sitting right where you expected right within touching range
You’ll never ask her out because you don’t want things to change.

But that girl’s smile in French class will at least get me through my next class
And that girl’s smile in French class makes me smile in the darkroom.
And that girl’s smile in French class will at least get me through my next class
And that girl’s smile in French class makes me smile in the darkroom.
Smile in the darkroom…
Track Name: Girls
Girls make me feel like shit
And I’m trying to make sense of it.
Maybe I expect too much from girls
And all they want to do is have some fun.

Why does the hefty man drop his pizza?
Why are you so cool but I never get to see you?
Why does the athlete always end up in the crutch?
Why do you live so far away?
When I like you so much, I like you so much.

Girls make me feel like shit
Girls make me feel like shit
Girls make me feel like feces
And that’s all right with me.

Going to your ride, going to my ride, going to your ride.
Going to your ride, going to my ride, going to your ride.

Why does the hefty man drop his pizza?
Why are you so cool but I never get to see you?
Why does the athlete always end up in the crutch?
Why do you live so far away?
When I like you so much, I like you so much.

Girls make me feel like shit
Girls make me feel like shit
Girls make me feel like feces
And that’s all right with me.
Track Name: Hastings
Do you want to hear all about the town I
The town that I grew up in?
There’s a river that you can’t swim in
And there are restaurants you can’t eat in.
But across the river there’s some cliffs
Look at them when you can’t wait to leave Hastings.

Hastings is perfect in the way it doesn’t satisfy
Kids are whining get me out of here.
But these kids tend to drop the history
In the cracks of the sidewalks.
And all the lazy Sundays
And all the stressed out weekdays.

I will go away and this place won’t change
I will go away and Hastings will stay the same.
I will go away and this place won’t change
I will go away and Hastings will stay the same.

Do you want to hear all about the town I
The town that I grew up in?
It’s democratic with these rich white kids
And all of their white kids problems.
Fabricated problems like grades and extra circulars
That are meaningless ‘cause they mean nothing to you.

I will go away and this place won’t change
I will go away and Hastings will stay the same.
I will go away and this place won’t change
I will go away and Hastings will stay the same.
Track Name: Slime Girl
Do you remember the vomit?
You threw your brains up on the ground
You look lost
You’re in a cold sweat
The blood vessels burst in your eyes

But who was there to hold back your hair
And tell you it’s all right
Cause all I saw was you alone in a bathroom
Covered in green slime

Your cheeks weren’t rosy
In fact they were a ghastly gray
Home you said is where you wanted to be
Home
Home
Home is so far away


But who was there to hold back your hair
And tell you it’s all right
Cause all I saw was you alone in a bathroom
Covered in green slime
Track Name: Julian
One summer midnight he slams on the door
You see his eyes, red around the edges
Hey son, you must have allergies, you’re looking quite strange to me.

He smells like a skunk, must have been in the forest
Collecting data and numbers, ‘cause he’s good at science
My kid’s a miracle you say around the office.

And Julian your only son
Smokes weed in the forest on the weekend when you’re sleeping.
And Julian your only son
He’s like all the others, a messed up one.

He raids the fridge, eats all of the cashew nuts
You try to get him to watch movies but he’s tired
My kid’s an honor’s student and your kid is nothing to brag about.

Julian sneaks into his room
Opens the window and relieves the stress with a fresh bowl
Hey son, good job on the grades, keep it up and you’ll have it made.

And Julian your only son
Smokes weed in the forest on the weekend when you’re sleeping.
And Julian your only son
He’s like all the others, a messed up one.
Track Name: Lady Killer
All the girls think that they love you
All the girls think you love them too
They eat all the bullshit you tell them up.
You throw around all these I love yous
Like they are rocks and girls are the ocean
But all you want is to get some ass tonight.

Lady killer you heartless killer
What do you think of when you’re thinking so hard?
You’re charismatic, charming and thoughtful
But what do you value if you don’t value love?

You donate hollow words
Default phrases on dating sites
But you are all full of spite.
Her hopeful glance is an annoyance
The way she tries hard makes you stressed
And all you want is for her to get undressed.

Lady killer you heartless killer
What do you think of when you’re thinking so hard?
You’re charismatic, charming and thoughtful
But what do you value if you don’t value love?

Lady killer you heartless killer
What do you think of when you’re thinking so hard?
You’re charismatic, charming and thoughtful
But what do you value if you don’t value love?
Track Name: Fall From Grace
Once I was a runner, racing quickly
But now tortoise pace.
Once I was a genius, thinking deeply
But now scatter-brained.
When I was a kid I said hello to the freaks and the garbage-people I’d see.

Once I needed someone, aching chest-pain
But now it’s flesh.
Once I had this passion, screaming loudly
But now eyes are glazed.
When I was a kid I said hello to the broken faces on the street.

Something’s shattered in my brain
Be cool don’t change.
Something’s melting on my face
Stay there remain.
I will miss myself now sickly, so please don’t go.

Mind is full of bright stars, T.V. static
It fills my eyes.
Cheap foamy pleasure, again this evening
And stretched dumb smile.
I can see my face on heads of slumped over people I used to spit in their face.

Something’s shattered in my brain
Be cool don’t change.
Something’s melting on my face
Stay there remain.
I will miss myself now sickly, so please don’t go.

Something’s shattered in my brain
Be cool don’t change.
Something’s melting on my face
Stay there remain.
I will miss myself now sickly, so please don’t go.
