Track Name: Accident
Thought you would never call
Trippin like it's always tuesday
Ceilings in the bathroom stall,
With the xanax bar and the xanax bar

Now we lay in Holly's rose
Heaven taste like cereal breakfast
Dreamers in the ballroom robes
With the eyes so cold
And the eyes so cold

I'll be, I'll be incinerated
Tell me how you do it
How you always incinerate me
And you'll be the one slipping away (incinerating)

Now we're out in Holly's grove
Waiting for a bluer tuesday
bombers in the dim lit cloaks
With the guns on fire and the lips like Judas

It's just pressure you see
That takes all of the life from me
It's just pressure that helps you waste
Away

I'll be, I'll be incinerated
Tell me how you do it
How you always incinerate me
And you'll be the one slipping away (incinerating)

I was in the sickly halls
Trippin like its never Wednesday
She's been in the tender walls
with the eyes like wolves and the lips like music.
Track Name: Aries
Aries is an introvert, she hates it
And hates the questions
She works at a restaurant in New York City
What a sentiment
I've been hang in on 2nd st, I'm naked
And talkin to junkies
She looks back at me and says you made it
You made it, made it

Now that you're found
Are you gonna light this city?
and burn it to the ground?
I don't know
She says you got problems and problems and problems

Aries got no fools in life
She hates them all
And wants em to die
She says you're the only guy
That can waste my time
And I feel fine

Now that you're found
Are you gonna light this city?
and burn it to the ground?
I don't know
She says you got problems and problems and problems
Track Name: Cheesepuffs
Baby listen up I got a new problem
My head is so sore from the background
Run and tell your dad that I'm the one who shot em
The force of the you crane is dead and gone

And I don't care about the people how they hang around
cause they are so tight wound, you are so tight wound
Know that all of them are so damn nice we could be friends
I just don't like them, I just don't like them

That's the thing when you're talking about war
And you were trying so hard (x2)

I've been needle armed,
my head strung out and i can't sing
But she is so right on, and he is so right on
Wanna walk about the Afghan goddess faithful route?
but she's so hung up on herself and the iPhone

everybody's cool they get so drunk and act like fools
but there just he liars, breathing in the fibers
know that all of them are so stuck up about that fuck shit
i just don't like her, i just don't like her

That's the thing when you're talking about war
And you were trying so hard (x2)

I'm the best around (x10)
Track Name: Beat It Out
Faster now lets get it on so I can win the fight
I've been dreaming in my mind
I'm feeling stupid all the time
You think life is alabaster or juliets old coat
I've been wearing only winter
while your making all your jokes

Like a monkey on my halo
i never felt so red
Dreaming in the morning of dying in your bed
I never caught a buddha
The oneness wasn't true
the only god I've ever seen was in eyes colored blue

I've been off time with myself, I don't mind
You chew my bones, acid soul

So beat it out, just beat it out, beat it out of my mind
Out of my mind
I said beat it out, just beat it out, beat it out of my mind
Out of my mind

Cause you chew my bones, acid soul
I've been off time with myself, I don't mind
Track Name: Hey Julia
Hey Julia
I've been waiting for you
To breathe like your coming down
And you've been spending your time
on ladders and shoots
Settle into some hick town

I don't find it all that strange
that the best was the problem
And i don't find it all that strange
that the best was the problem

And they've been dreaming your eyes
in the blackest night
see/saw world falls down
They've been weighing me out on the libra scales
eyes cut back through town

I don't find it all that strange
that the best was the problem
And i don't find it all that strange
that the best was the problem

You've been looking at me like I was a fool
Always gotta win somehow
And I've been wondering if you're going back to school
Cause you're not there right now

Hey Julia
I got news for you
You're my favorite sound
It's been ringing in ears
for the last couple years
Can't find its way on out

I don't find it all that strange
that the best was the problem
And i don't find it all that strange
that the best was the problem

Have they been dreaming ya right
In the black and white?
I've been color blind.
And you've been looking like you
could've lost that fight
in highschool park that time
Where we sat on the bench
and swung away
all of our problems
how we sat on the bench and swung away
all of our problems

Hey Julia
I'm terrified
The waters gonna make me drown
And the world looks gray
in both of my eyes
like the smoke rings your blowing out

I don't find it all that strange
that the best was the problem
And i don't find it all that strange
when the best is the problem
