Track Name: Cockroach
i will leave this place
never to return again
all the things you say
you always try to get me
to stay

i won't leave again
i'll always be here
watching you sitting there so beautiful
smoke you cigarettes and ask me
"how was your day?"

i will never come back
but i'll always
return
Track Name: Okay
You never talk about yourself
I don’t even know who you are
Just that you’re sleeping on the sidewalk
Outside of the market
Right next to my car

You never ask me for a dime
I never offer you a cent
Just wonder why you’re growing old
Out here in the cold
What unfortunate events

And it's okay
To shake your fist and cry into the rain
You say that it could be much worse
Yes, life could be a curse
If the sidewalk wasn’t paved

I guess perspective is your friend
It certainly was never mine
But you could teach a thing or three
To people just like me
Perhaps this is a sign

And it's okay
To shake your fist and cry into the rain
You say that it could be much worse
Yes, life could be a curse
If the sidewalk wasn’t paved
If the sidewalk wasn’t paved
Track Name: Redacted
I wrote a song but it was a lie
I couldn’t bring myself to sing it for you
I wrote a song for you but it was lie
I couldn’t bring myself to sing it for you

I cursed you for your faith
I called your life a waste
I listed reasons why
Your beliefs make me cry

I wrote a song but it was a lie
I couldn’t bring myself to sing it for you
I wrote a song for you but it was lie
I couldn’t bring myself to sing it for you

I justified my hate
I blamed a hopeless fate
I knew that I was wrong
Here’s your redacted song

I wrote a song but it was a lie
I couldn’t bring myself to sing it for you
I wrote a song for you but it was lie
I couldn’t bring myself to sing it for you
Track Name: Shell
YOU'RE NOT THE PERSON
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE
ADDICTED TO THE PRAISE AND COMFORT
THAT YOU NEED TO BREATHE
YOU'LL WASTE AWAY TO NOTHING
I'M THE PROOF YOU NEED TO SEE
YOU'RE JUST AN EMPTY SHELL OF
WHO YOU USED TO BE

I'm no better
We're both garbage floating on the river
We're both takers drowning givers
I know you agree
I'm no better
I am covered in debris from other
Structures I've collapsed on brothers
I'm trying to make you see

YOU'RE NOT THE PERSON
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE
ADDICTED TO THE PRAISE AND COMFORT
THAT YOU NEED TO BREATHE
YOU'LL WASTE AWAY TO NOTHING
I'M THE PROOF YOU NEED TO SEE
YOU'RE JUST AN EMPTY SHELL OF
WHO YOU USED TO BE

I'm no better
We're both hollow like the bones of birds
We're both lemmings with the herd
I know you agree
I'm no better
I am covered in decrees from other
Promises I broke to mothers
I'm trying to make you see

YOU'RE NOT THE PERSON
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE
ADDICTED TO THE PRAISE AND COMFORT
THAT YOU NEED TO BREATHE
YOU'LL WASTE AWAY TO NOTHING
I'M THE PROOF YOU NEED TO SEE
YOU'RE JUST AN EMPTY SHELL OF
WHO YOU USED TO BE

I'm no better
We're both wasting time depleting effort
We're both steeped in false endeavors
I know you agree
I'm no better
I am coated with the shame from other
Memories I want to smother
I'm trying to make you see

YOU'RE NOT THE PERSON
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE
ADDICTED TO THE PRAISE AND COMFORT
THAT YOU NEED TO BREATHE
YOU'LL WASTE AWAY TO NOTHING
I'M THE PROOF YOU NEED TO SEE
I'M JUST AN EMPTY SHELL OF
WHO I USED TO BE
Track Name: Smooth As Cake
Long ago about a mile from here
We tried to make a friendly atmosphere
People smiling and high-fiving all day
Do it for the love because it ain't for the pay

LIFE IS BEST WHEN YOU COLLABORATE
DON'T HAVE TO WORRY 'BOUT MAKIN' MISTAKES
BECAUSE WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER
WE'RE SMOOTH AS CAKE

The struggle bus is pulling up outside
Nobody is stressing we're just taking a ride
I hope that you all feel the same as me
A team that sticks together is a family

LIFE IS BEST WHEN YOU COLLABORATE
DON'T HAVE TO WORRY 'BOUT MAKIN' MISTAKES
BECAUSE WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER
WE'RE SMOOTH AS CAKE
Track Name: No One Gets Left Behind
Maybe I could be a better man
Maybe I could have a stronger hand
Maybe this truth we can restore
Maybe I could make a better choice
Maybe I could finally raise my voice

NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND NO MORE
NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND NO MORE

Maybe everything is getting dark
Maybe it will let you see the spark
One thing is true forever more
Maybe I should never start a fight
Maybe I can’t help but do what’s right

NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND NO MORE
NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND NO MORE

Maybe everything I thought was true
Dissolved and scattered in the wake of you
One thing that I believe for sure

NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND NO MORE
NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND NO MORE
Track Name: Lately
Lately I’ve been having trouble sleeping
And I’m sure there’s nothing you can do
Mostly I just stay up all night thinking
About how much I miss talking to you

Lately I’ve been having trouble speaking
But I know that isn’t an excuse
Mostly I just try to keep on breathing
Because I know that I can make it through

Oh, perspective changes
Oh, I’ve got no empty spots to fill
Oh, I don’t remember when I knew
But it’s hard to pray for answers
When I don’t believe in you

Lately I’ve been having trouble teaching
Sometimes it seems harder without you
Lately I’ve been focused on believing
In myself because that’s all that’s true

Oh, perspective changes
Oh, I’ve got no empty spots to fill
Oh, I don’t remember when I knew
But it’s hard to pray for answers
When I don’t believe in you
Track Name: Wawa
If you’re feeling down
And you don’t know what to do
Baby you just need to let the
Wawa service you

All-day coffee, play the lottery
Gas pumps unless you got a legacy
A one-stop shop full service deli
Please excuse me while I get
Another half-gallon of tea
Shorti, classic, family size
I got hand-spun milkshakes in my eyes
And cheese-stuffed pretzels on my mind
The greatest store that you will find

If you’re feeling down
And you don’t know what to do
Baby you just need to let the
Wawa service you

Now if you’re not part of the Wawa scene
Then you probably don’t know what the hell I mean
It’s a convenience store with a warmer side
Built-to-order east coast pride
If you don’t have a Wawa down your way
Don’t worry ‘cause they’re spreading ‘cross the USA
Made it all the way down to Florida
And now once more let me remind ya

If you’re feeling down
And you don’t know what to do
Baby you just need to let the
Wawa service you
Track Name: Momma
I feel so very old
What does that make you?
We've been through hell and back
And always made it through

AND MOMMA
WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT YOU?
AND MOMMA
I HOPE YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE
I'M DOING THE BEST I CAN
WITH ALL THE THINGS THAT I LEARNED FROM YOU
I'LL ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF YOU
AS LONG AS I'M YOUR FAVORITE

So you better answer my calls
And send me money when I need it
If you want me to put you in a good home
Say you love me and mean it

AND MOMMA
WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT YOU?
AND MOMMA
I HOPE YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE
I'M DOING THE BEST I CAN
WITH ALL THE THINGS THAT I LEARNED FROM YOU
I'LL ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF YOU
AS LONG AS I'M YOUR FAVORITE
I'LL ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF YOU
AS LONG AS I'M YOUR FAVORITE
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Give Up
What can I do
When the music and lyrics aren’t enough?
Can I lean on you
To be my harmony when things are tough?
I don’t want to waste this chance
But speaking up may cause an avalanche
I’ve got two cups - one is full
But the other is really comfortable

I DON’T WANNA GIVE UP
BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT WORK
I DON’T WANNA GIVE UP
BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT WORK

What can I do
When the timing of the beat just falls apart?
Can I follow you
While you’re pounding out the rhythm on a broken heart?
I don’t want to lose this chance
But keeping quiet is a pointless trance
I’ve got two faces - one is cool
But the other is just a fucking fool

I DON’T WANNA GIVE UP
BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT WORK
I DON’T WANNA GIVE UP
BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT WORK
I DON’T WANNA GIVE UP
BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT WORK
I DON’T WANNA GIVE UP
BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT WORK
Track Name: Move Over
Static and cold against me
Shrouding resentment under sympathy
The richest ground with barren seed
And I won't concede

Your shadow expands disguising your form
Eclipsing every incandescent source
You tower above uninspired and mean
And I won't concede

MOVE OVER, MOVE OVER NOW
MOVE OVER, MOVE OVER NOW

A star before dawn fell to me
Casting darkness on this troubled scene
The end that comes is meant to be
And I won't concede

MOVE OVER, MOVE OVER NOW
MOVE OVER, MOVE OVER NOW
MOVE OVER, MOVE OVER NOW
I HAD A MOMENT OF DOUBT THAT YOU TURNED AROUND
I HAD A MOMENT OF DOUBT THAT YOU TURNED AROUND
I HAD A MOMENT OF DOUBT THEN YOU TURNED AROUND
Track Name: The Great Beyond
High above the clouds I see
Endless possibilities
In the dark beyond lies eternity

Born to question why
Living through these mortal eyes
What becomes of dreams that die?

TAKING OFF DESPITE IMPOSSIBLE ODDS
FACING OFF AGAINST THE ANGRIEST GODS
I WILL SEE YOU ALL IN THE GREAT BEYOND

Tell them what they want to hear
Never making my plan clear
I go off again to face my fears

Terrified to leave this land
I will be the only man
Lost on purpose
That's just part of my plan

TAKING OFF DESPITE IMPOSSIBLE ODDS
FACING OFF AGAINST THE ANGRIEST GODS
I WILL SEE YOU ALL IN THE GREAT BEYOND

Goodbye
Goodbye
Track Name: The First Man Lost On Jupiter
The sun breaks the window
Caressing my face
Today is a new day
A new chance to escape
They say that it can’t be done
My elation misplaced
I’m scared to let go
But I’m willing to test my fate

I’m headed to space
Where I’ll live out the rest of my days
The first man lost on Jupiter
That was the case
I’m headed to space
Where I’ll live out the rest of my days
The first man lost on Jupiter
So much for being afraid

What I see is amazing
Heart beats at an inhuman pace
All the wonders that I behold
In this magical place
I won’t get to tell anyone
I’ll never get back to my base
I can’t say that it bothers me
So long, goodbye, I just couldn’t wait

I’m headed to space
Where I’ll live out the rest of my days
The first man lost on Jupiter
That was the case
I’m headed to space
Where I’ll live out the rest of my days
The first man lost on Jupiter
So much for being afraid
