Track Name: Life Isn't Boring
Sink your hands in deep and drown inside my
mouth forcing me to breathe
Reality is lost on me
A wall where I once saw trees

Life isn’t boring
Life isn’t alone, it’s you

“I’m your sun in life but you don’t treat me right.”
“You’re my son in life but you won’t treat me right.”

Life isn’t boring
Life isn’t alone
Life isn’t waiting for you anymore
Track Name: Andrea
I wanna fall in love with someone better than me
I wanna open my mouth without losing my teeth

Andrea, it sure was nice to see ya
But I guess I’ll never see you again

Making habits last fall
(excuses why I’m never home)
I’m first the mirror, then the wall
(now lose me on your telephone)
Breaking up to soon
I’ll be home burning down on my way to you

Wrap my body in love and get me out of the cold
Purge hard into me, just don’t expect it to grow

Andrea, it sure was nice to see ya
But I guess I’ll never see you again

Never again
Track Name: Leech
Lucidity will or won’t let go of me
With every single step we mapped downtown
Or in a dream along with ghosts

There were bodies that I loved in places I could reach
Will time relieve my mind or is my memory a leech?

Hey love, I just don't want you to know
That I’m still seeing ghosts of what I can't let go

I never thought we’d amount to this
Now chasing love where we still exist
But now I know that we were fading too
Everything is love and we’re just passing through

Hey love, I just don’t want you to know
That I’m still seeing ghosts of what I can’t let go
Track Name: Speed Trials (Elliott Smith Cover)
He’s pleased to meet you underneath the
Horse in the cathedral with the glass stained black
Singing sweet high notes that echo back to destroy their master
May be a long time ‘til you get the call-up
But it's sure as fate and hard as your luck
No one’ll know where you are

It’s just a brief smile crossing your face
I’m running speed trials standing in place

When the socket’s not a shock enough
You little child, what makes you think you’re tough?
When all the people you think you’re above
They all know what’s the matter
You’re such a pinball, yeah you know it’s true
There’s always something you go back running to
To follow the path of no resistance
