Cockroach 02:35
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
2.
Okay 02:33
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

Redacted 03:21
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

Shell 04:47
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

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

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
7.
Lately 04:00
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
8.
Wawa 04:00
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
9.
Momma 03:10
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
10.
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

Move Over 05:37
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
12.
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
13.
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
