Track Name: Hopeless Song
One day I won't be selfish,
I will put myself aside and realize,
that the terror in your eyes must subsidize.

One day I won't be jealous,
I won't act or dramatize.

Bah-da-da-da
Bah-da-da-da-da

I'm singin' a hopeless song,
a hopeless song, a hopeless.

One day I won't be selfish,
I will put myself aside and realize,
that the terror in your eyes must subsidize.

One day I won't be jealous,
I won't act or dramatize but realize
that the terror in your eyes

I'm singin' a hopeless song,
a hopeless song, a hopeless.

Bah-da-da-da
Bah-da-da-da-da
Track Name: Fake Empire (The National Cover)
Stay out super late tonight,
pickin' apples, makin' pie.
Put a little something in our gatorade and take it with us.

We're half awake,
in a fake empire.
We're half awake,
in a fake empire.

Tip toe through our shiny city,
with our diamond slippers on.
Do our gay ballet at night,
with blue birds on our shoulders,

We're half awake,
in a fake empire.
We're half awake,
in a fake empire.

Turn the light out, say goodnight,
no thinking for a little while.
Let's not try to figure out everything at once.
It's hard keeping track of you,
falling through the sky.

We're half awake,
in a fake empire.
We're half awake,
in a fake empire.
Track Name: I Am The Mnemonist (Gaezzetti Cover)
My mother used to tell me I was handsome.
I shrugged it off, I shrugged it off.
My father used to sit me on the very same knee,
the very same knee, the one that played that joke on me.

My conscious has no boredom,
I will recite words in order,
to sing you a tune,
to sing you a tune,
it's a melodic string of notes,
you'll let me play it for you.
But are you listening?

Did I forget my youth?
Have I devalued that tooth?
The one that brought me new shoes.
Or have I dismembered my past,
as I was sitting in class?
Made those kids so jealous of how I did my math.
What can I say?

My bike still hangs from spokes inside my father's garage,
and I bet he thinks I forgot.
He thinks I forgot.
Imagine where I'd be if friends replaced family,
a porcelain doll, top shelf with books and magazines.

My consious has no boredom,
I will recite words in order,
but what do they mean?
What do they mean?
'Cause they mean nothing if this means nothing to me.

They mean nothing if this means nothing to me.
Track Name: Breaking Away (Owen Cover)
Well just between, you and me,
I don't know what I'm doing here.
In your room, close to you,
full of shit and free beer.

Well my brother, the bartender,
I tip him well and I drink for free.
He takes good care of me,
he takes good care of me,
either way I'm here.

I'm a bicycle,
I'm too tired to ride home.
If it's okay with you,
can I take off these shoes and stay the night?

Well just between, you and me,
this thing between you and me,
may not be anything worth singing about.
Or it might be just what I need.
Someone to take my mind off things,
at the end of a long day.
Someone to take my pants off me,
at the end of a long night,
either way we're here.

We're two bicycles,
ridden too tired to know,
which one of us two is dumb enough to choose,
the other as a lover.
Track Name: Holding On, For Sure
And when the curtains close on us,
they will follow through with their demands of an encore.
But I'm running for the door,
and the nearest local liquor store.
And you're holdong on, for sure,
to the things you'd like to keep in store.

And don't bother calling me,
once I've hit the streets
with my selfish thought.
It's useless.
But you're thinking of the score,
and the fastest way to throw the lure.
And I'm holding on, for sure,
to the things I'd like to keep in store.
