Track Name: Hello Wisconsin!
There’s no backing down!

We’ve been waiting for
The lights to come on in the station
Without hesitation
There’s no way we’re going down easily
With all these lines that we’ve sung to
We all feel the same goddamn way as you

Memories of times that I spent with my friends
Breathe in Wisconsin air
When we fall down we’ll just pick ourselves up
We still do and we’re alright
We’re fucking gone
Track Name: To Infinity and Beyond
Well I’m losing my potential to a bitter man in athetlic shorts
He keeps me from falling asleep at the wheel as I’m driving home from port
As the lighthouse fades in my rearview mirror
Heading west down 33
I turn the bright lights on because it’s too damn dark to see

All the city lights have gone down tonight
The winter makes me cold but the summer makes me wish for snow
And if I don’t need maps cause of sidewalk cracks
I hate to be honest but I’m homesick for a town that I hate

Well I’m losing my potential to a bearded man who drinks mtn dew
He keeps me from doing stupid shit and from being considered rude
Newberg passes on my right side don’t blink or else you’ll miss it
Remember the fun times I had doing stupid shit with my best friends

Cause running from the cops is a lot more fun than getting caught

All the city lights have gone down tonight
The winter makes me cold but the summer makes me wish for snow
And if I don’t need maps cause of sidewalk cracks
I hate to be honest but I’m homesick for a town that I hate

The trees they lose their leaves in the fall
They change colors and the fall to the ground
And as I saw I started to realize that the world’s
A lot bigger than what’s going on in my life

My fucking life

All the city lights have gone down tonight
The winter makes me cold but the summer makes me wish for snow
And if I don’t need maps cause of sidewalk cracks
I hate to be honest but I’m homesick for a town that I hate
Track Name: 28:06:42:12
Take me back to the days
When everything was okay
With our top hats on
Passed out in Gatsby’s front lawn
We’d have Charleston dancing contests
And no one would get their grind on

Doc and I would strap ourselves to the seats
DeLorean take off to 1923
A phone booth with some snack foods
Be excellent to each other
And party on dudes

28 days away from the time
November hits you
It’s hard to clean your room
With a jet engine in the middle
Of your floor
42 minutes says Frank to me
On our parents’ front lawn
I’ve got to find a way to make this wormhole take me back
To where I was before

Hey Apollo how’s it going this is mission control
Just called to tell you that you’re screwed because of a black hole
In your path, no escape, kind of a painful fate
But at this time of year it’s a pretty common mistake

28 days away from the time
November hits you
It’s hard to clean your room
With a jet engine in the middle
Of your floor
42 minutes says Frank to me
On our parents’ front lawn
I’ve got to find a way to make this wormhole take me back
To where I was before
Track Name: FYIHY
fuck you, i hate you
i hope you get hit by a bus
please die
and then i'll picket your funeral
please fucking kill yourself
with a gun to the face
or better yet, hang yourself
because it's more fucking painful
your life is a sham
and it doesn't mean
anything your parents hate you too
i've never met anyone
who's such a fucking asshole as you
so just don't come around
Track Name: It's Not A Garage, It's A Carriage House
I want you to know
That winter’s not so cold
And when this time of year rolls around again
It always seems like your shit’s getting old
And I want you to say
That you’re not okay
Cause if home is where the heart is
And you’re a heartless son of a bitch
Then where do you call home?

I went outside the other day
And could not find the words to say
as soon as the shit hits the fan you’re gone
Instead of kisses I get hugs
Instead of hellos I get goodbyes
It’s not gonna be any fun this year

It’s not what you think you’re just too ordinary
I’m not all alone cause I’ve got Frank and Henry
You left because I can’t be who you want me to be
This year’s gonna be like last year
Except now I kick ass

How can I say another word
If you won’t let my voice be heard
The trees and grass they still will grow when you’re gone
Maybe in another time I could find some peace of mind
But my time machine won’t start and you’re gone

It’s not what you think you’re just too ordinary
I’m not all alone cause I’ve got Frank and Henry
You left because I can’t be who you want me to be
This year’s gonna be like last year
Except now I kick ass

I want you to know
That winter’s not so cold
And when this time of year rolls around again
It always seems like your shit’s getting old
And I want you to say
That you’re not okay
Cause if home is where the heart is
And you’re a heartless son of a bitch
Then where do you call home?
Track Name: I Hope They Call Me Henry When I Die
Well I’m proud of who I am today
But I cannot speak for you
All the things I wish I would’ve said
But they just sounded too rude
So I’ll just hold my breath and draw a line
Remember summer and let’s rewind
This waterfall is filled with lies
So I hope they call me Henry when I die

It’s okay
To tell your friends our situation
And it’s okay
Cause I’ve had a revelation
That I hate your friends a whole damn lot
But I fucking love the ones I’ve got
It’s okay
If I never hear you speak to me again
Track Name: You Stay Classy, San Diego
With all this talk
I don’t know why nobody’s leaving our home town
If we’re all moving on
Why’s everybody still drinking
At the same lame-ass house parties?

So where do we go?
Left all on our own
We can’t spend the rest of our lives
Wondering how we survived this far
There’s no backing down
Although the light’s faded
I don’t need a map to guide me home

I can’t quite explain
What makes me feel at home hanging out in parking lots
And I can’t seem to remember
Why we were all fighting
And how this entire thing began

So where do we go?
Left all on our own
We can’t spend the rest of our lives
Wondering how we survived this far
There’s no backing down
Although the light’s faded
I don’t need a map to guide me home

Guitar!!

All the city lights have gone down tonight
The winter makes me cold but the summer makes me wish for snow
And if I don’t need maps cause of sidewalk cracks
I hate to be honest but I’m homesick for a town that I hate
