Track Name: Bite Size
im tryna focus, its not as easy as you make it look
lost my page and had to start all over again
chilled for a little then i killed it and called a friend
im trine devolve back to bite size
i wanna turn right around and walk straight to the dawn of man
i wanna lose my mind and start all over again

*my bones weigh a skele-ton
im beat, man, im havin fun
i got time for another one
always another one

got disconnected and just shut off my phone for a while
know i really didn't mind it was actually kinda nice
why do they blame it on god when the king wants a sacrifice?
back to bite size
just rewind me like a VHS
i wanna turn right around and walk straight to the dawn of man
i wanna lose my mind and start all over again

*youre not bein paranoid
all those faces you avoid, snapped up in the celluloid
always the picture of per----

you're only draggin in my wake, for goodness sake
you didn't get here by mistake, lucky you
i guess
im sick im tired im goin home
Track Name: Flashlight Memory
*it was a flashlight memory
gist of which i could barely see
thats when i know, thats when i know
that i was gettin' close

when your imagination tries
to move the pieces you supply
you say the weirdest shit when you're just
waken up
what you remember from the dream
is only what gets hit by the beam
you say the weirdest shit when you're just wakin' up

just before i fell out
my teeth were fallin' out my mouth
i see it all just thru a straw im makin' do
i was just makin up a stage
with architecture rearranged
im walkin backwards out the door in some kinda suit

it was a flashlight memory
gist of which i could barely see
you were you but someone else
i was trying to find myself
thats when i know
that i was gettin' close

when the conversation dies
move the pieces they supply
it was a flashlight memory
the gist of which i could barely see
thats when i know who is the you that watches you
in a dream
thats when i know that i was gettin' close
Track Name: Prom Is Cancelled
swear to god i could take them
yeah i know its five to one
no i aint got no handgun
another terrible idea
'where you goin' without your purse?'
oh my god, it just gets worse

they wanna beat on a landline
they wanna do what their daddy done
i know that if i could stand mine
they wouldn't have been the only ones

and mom they're handing me problems
wanna take me for my sex
i don't know about that yet
another terrible idea
why'd they go and stop me now?
just came out to get put down

they votin' me for the prom queen
like that'll hurt any more than before
so if im goin to come clean
wanna see how it feels
to be the one in the heels

'called all of you here today
with refunds and a few choice words to say
the assailant done and sailed
im hopin that he held out till all diplomacy failed
we're not really taking sides on anything
so not to offend or bend on yr bed springs
its never anything that i figured out

separatin' church and school and kids can be so cruel
hate to see the world beat up on a girl or beautiful fool
you got your composure now that its over
did you get your closure? no?'

mom you promised me ice cream
mom you promised me water slides
mom i got home alright tonight
mom i got home alright tonight
Track Name: You Were Wrong
7 back and 7 forward
playin jester for the lady and the lord
my will starts to breaking
under the saber they're shaking
but don't you fret im not there yet

they wanna get me when im weak
and spit me out when they find im far too sick to eat
its my blood in the water, but its not me that they're after
you take a drink and then you think

*you were wrong

im all out of shits to give
they only got one book that tells ya how to live
the ink is bleeding
through the page that im reading
but you don't see whats underneath

force out one last casualty
don't you point that thing at me

this whole place is gettin' teared down
they grab their morals and they head for higher ground
now that you're up there
we all have to adjust to your height
it falls down the moment that you think you're right and i say

*you were wrong
Track Name: Checkbook & Change
before the roof collapsed this was a pretty nice house
couldn't get home/couldnt go home without
you don't leave the house period
its getting pretty serious
your little list dwindles and dies
and i just cannot compete with mistakes that i made
when i turn back around at it all unafraid
of every self in the room that was laid would serve only to hide

i know that you said that existing's exhausting
when i come home battered you're lickin' the frosting
ya say that its cake but that i gotta wait
tell me just how long will it be?

until you find some other way around
and if you find some other way around
i wont be down for you

i know it wasn't your plan to act like a bastard
but you went out at 9 and got home at 2 plastered
and still found the time to call your life a disaster and not even try to sound cute
and i just cannot abide by the new motorbike
that you ride in your mind and expect me to like
cuz your minds miles wide but you just aren't the type to take the beaten path through
over my shoulder its wind in the sails
cuz you said that you built something too big to fail
but i feel like i feel, we were trained to derail
i know that you're playin', "sayin'"

*if you find some other way around
i wont be down for you

(cue sacrificial chanting)

never promised me nothin' i couldnta stole
cept some old leather checkbook and change for the toll
im in line with my mind for the dole
tonight im eatin' fresh fruit

hate when you inch to the edge of the earth
yeah you get an idea but you question the worth
or you stop where you are and ask who did it first like you don't know how thats gonna end
and i figure i only got so many lifts left
and only so many swings at the thing i hit best
im not laughing this time you say surely i jest
but im keeping it close

*if you find some other way around
i wont be down for you
