Track Name: Leaving Lake Wobegone
Away from home I plan to stay
For a while, wild child
I am grieving my days
Here, alone in this dark place
The sun is high,
The lake's gone dry
In the Lone Star State
I am leaving

Every single night when I come home,
Thoughts cross my mind that make me wanna cry
But no more, for I've got no time

Father, I am surely yours
I will see the south of France
One day, I'm sure
Mother, you've lived in my heart
From the start, no need to fret
I am making my art
Please believe me

Every single night when I come home,
Thoughts cross my mind that make me wanna cry
But no more, for I've got no time
Track Name: Our New Home
Some kind of day begins
Dawning is the sun
Look up states away
And know I'm looking at the same one

I love you so
I'll be waiting
In our new home
I'll be waiting
Track Name: I Fear So Deeply
She has trouble expressing joy
"See you in Hell!" she says
But I can't find my way out
Without a path

It's time to take the headphones off
Hear the noise around my house
I can't sleep a wink
Tonight, I'm gone

It never gets me anywhere
It never helped me out
You can't comprehend
The fear within

I always knew it would come to this
Follow me in at night
We'll lie down on the floorboards
To end our days
Track Name: Stuck In Time
I'm stuck in time currently
As I have been lately
If it works, I'm sorry
One month, you'll see me

I'm here once more, it's just after
So many wasted minutes lay still
Slowed, they refused to move faster

Staring at the roof with a crack
Above my bed
Someone here before fall punched a hole in the drywall
And it never got fixed

So much excitement, I can hardly contain it
But also, I feel a bit somber
Everything has been so great
So much to be gained
Track Name: Pretending Is Stupid
Maybe I'm already getting old inside, I'm so frustrated
I feel so dumb and I go out of my mind, oh, why am I so jaded?

I'm just afraid it won't make me happy anymore
And I'm not sure what I've been living for
Cuz it's not worth a thing

Maybe just a smug high five from some dickhead that I don't like
Am I the one who's in the wrong? Cuz I'm pretty sure that I'm right

Why should I pretend to like what I don't like?
Just to be a cool guy and pick fights?
Track Name: Where Is My Love Now?
Where is my love now?
Can you help me out?
Help me find it
Lost in an ocean
But I don't know which one
Hell is candle lit

Am I finding my way?
Am I finding my way away?
Where is my love now?

Brevity undone
Myself, I am not one
No, but two men
Mean man comes towards me
"Embrace me so softly"
I can't stop him

Am I finding my way?
Am I finding my way away?
Where is my love now?
Track Name: Naked
It doesn't hurt to wonder where you'll go
For wandering is a destination in and of itself, you know
And if at the end, you feel as if you've got nothing to show
At least never again will you wonder where you'll go

For many-a-moon, I gave into my fear
That my destiny was nothing more than a pool of my own tears
And the only absolute was the superiority of my peers
But I no longer give into my fears

For fear is a waste of my precious time
And I don't have enough room to let it take up space inside my little mind
And when life gets tough, and you tense up, it can be hard to unwind
So try not to waste any of your precious time

Sometimes your heart is gonna break
But you hope for tomorrow while trying to enjoy today
You get up every morning and you find kind words to say
Even though you know your heart is gonna break sometimes
