Don't scream, talk
You want to leave, walk
I'm just trying to get on your good side

I disagree with god
If you agree, nod
It takes a lot to be so fucking unclear

Tactfully placed accessories
A thought out outfit, I can see
And I'm stuck
Can't get up

Easily offended, she left
I couldn't help, but laugh
I make fun at everything, including dead babies

Genuine guy, mostly
Wine me up, I'll get toasty
Can't handle a lot, but please don't abuse that

Cheerful smile, kind eyes
I don't care if it's a disguise
And I'm stuck
Can't get up
I need to move
I need to walk away towards
Something that I want
That is missing
Cause of my thing

Don't leave, stay
I mean, hey
It hasn't been that bad so far, has it

A bowl of cocopops
In bed
Living life to the
Fullest just a trend,
And I'm done

Birds are enemies to
My nocturnal sense
Yes it says to me
That chirping makes you tense
So get up
Close the blinds
And lay down
Don't even think about it

The bike ride from my
Place to your place is
An avenue of creeps
Of fortune tellers, Hellen Kellers
A bunch of board game playing
Dweebs, check mate

Yet I cycle with my ears stuffed
Filled with musical delight
Some somber harmonies
Wind in my face insures its
All right you're going forward
Stop at the light
Don't over think it
Just have a good night

Went through conditioning
Like Little Albert, didn't stand a chance
Baby anxiety induced by
Watson and his creepy mask
What did you expect

Poor little Albert barely
Able to report Indecent acts
and it infects the research added
to the lack of decent
facts
conditioned to fear those
rats
it wouldn't happen today
well you're dead anyway

pour some for Albert cause
Of cumbersome miscalculations
Hydrocephalous one side, one
highfalutin exaggerator
Behaviorism
Isn't a reason
To make me feel bad
About a baby I don't know

If you ever knew
What Salty cheeks
can do to you
You'd stop - regain composure

If you ever felt
Like you're stuck
Feeling trapped
You talk - just talk about it

If you're ever feeling scared
Of hurting someone
Around the bend
That's fair, they'll care around the bend

You have witnessed
Salty cheeks, which makes you feel
That you're the one at fault
Accusing substance
on your face
What do I do
Your salty grace

Fake apathy
Makes this easier for
You and me
But still - that wall came down fast

It's not a selfish act
Just a predetermined
Vicious fact
That usually - this doesn't work out

If it's off just end it there
Wish I could say that this is fair
It's not - salty stains don't come off

You have witnessed
Salty cheeks, which makes you feel
That you're the one at fault
Accusing substance
on your face
What do I do
Your salty grace
Track Name: Intentions
Amaj7 Dmaj7 B#m7 Emaj7

Spineless hands approaching
Taking off your broach and
Shove my face into your neck
Kneading like a cat I ask please

D Dm A F# F#7

Stop x5
With this
How I'll miss all

D Dm E 0-11-0-9-0-12

These interactions
And naive intentions
Are sanctioned
By my actions

I'll go out and roam
I'll walk the dog for you
just stay at home
Take some time to cool

D Dm A F# F#7
Down X5
Cause you frown when
I'm not around

D Dm E 0-11-0-9-0-12
And it stresses me out
Second-guessing as you pout
I can't be what you're all about

Gaps of intimacy
We jumped from A to Z
It's bad, you see
Do I put my hand on her

D Dm A F# F#7
Knee or do I not
it's frustrating
I'm not sure how I'm supposed to be behaving

D Dm E 0-11-0-9-0-12
now it seems too late
but i'd rather just wait for it
Track Name: Nervous
Am G(323030) C Dm E

Truth or dare always made me nervous
Awkward bashful movements at the dance

Am G(323030) C7 F

Skip some classes stare at faces
wait for the bell to say its time to go to class

Fm C F Dm E7
Everything is something ill laugh at in the future

What if they use me as a punishment
Why can't I enjoy this like they do
Refuse to cut your hair even though its clearly really gross
Everything is something ill laugh at in the future

A C#m F#m D7 Dm
I won't join you after the movies
Pass on possible beauties
Don't want to get drunk with people I hate

I'll try to remind you
That all that's inside you
Are just shapeless organs helping you get by

So I stay out of the game
Track Name: Sleep
A F#m C#m E7
If I could have one super power
It's be the power to fall sleep
Speed, strength, invisibility
I don't care just let me sleep

If I could turn my brain off
It would save me lots of thoughts
That circle around and around in my head
Like a million different dots

F A7
F A7 - G#7
Stop thinking
You're still thinking
Stop thinking
You're still thinking

A F#m C#m E7
When I was young I tried thinking of nice movies
When falling asleep
But every Disney movie has
That one really scary scene

Then I just imagined colors
they resembled something bad
Counting sheep, counting ants
Counting this, counting that

F A7
F A7 - G#7
Stop thinking
You're still thinking
Stop thinking
You're still thinking

Dm E Am F
Move your eyes from side to side
Perhaps your conscience will subside
Your thoughts are bound to slip and slide
Between green fields and genocide

Dm E Am Am
You may think it'll never end
But sure enough it does again and
Again

F A7
F A7 - G#7
Stop thinking
You're still thinking
Stop thinking
You're still thinking
Track Name: Diagnosis
3x03xx 1x02xx 0x21 x022

It's a tough diagnosis
A form of psychosis
Don't know if I have it or not
Just wait, see if it starts

A part of me wants to be manic
I'll think I'm the best
would be an Interesting test
Of my character, which I'm not sure about
I wonder how that would work out

take it back
you don't need that
to be more of yourself

worse case just a couple pills
if they don't do then we refill
Track Name: Saddest Hug
capo 1
A xx3201 xx5556 x2211x

I think we'll call it a night
and share the worlds saddest hug

take the time to get acquainted
with surroundings cause they'll set it off

scents and sensory sensations
are more than enough

were just brittle sugar sculptures
A A7
scared animals

Dm xx2434 A A/G# A/F# F# B#m E

Dm xx2434
silence reigns supreme
A (687766) A/G# (587766)
clouded eyes, clouded judgment
A/F# (202220) F#
hyperventilating in my arms and
B#m E
yes this is just the worse
for me and you, i think

A xx3201 xx5556 x2211x

I think we'll call it a night
and share the worlds saddest hug

we won't be able to surmise
because our eyes are amidst a sad-off

face it - cant always embrace it
starts to feel like braces,

fixed it- but my survival instincts
A A7
are based off bad statistics


Dm xx2434
silence reigns supreme
A (687766) A/G# (587766)
clouded eyes, clouded judgment
A/F# (202220) F#
hyperventilating in my arms and
B#m
im aching you on
E E7
ink spills paintings are gone

A (687766) A/G# (587766)
barren walls, old cardboard boxes
A/F# (202220) F#
left in dusty hidden spots and
B#m
we forget how to wake up
E
embedded in our beds, were stuck

Track Name: Silly String
X321 / x543 / x755 / x977 / x877 / x755 / x534 / x3xxx fill
Fill going up / x767 / x335 / x767 / x879

And now, a change from the main motif
Lets have some fun, i'll get the silly string
You get balloons, maybe a little cake
Lets do this cause i need a break

Stop wondering if I should or shouldn't
Cause it's done with and I just couldn't
Lets watch a movie, a stupid one please
Cause this is borderline disease

x767 x335
I know it won't last for long
x767 x879
but something nice is better than nothing at all

Composing this I thought it would sound happy
Guess overall I did pretty badly
But then again, I now have silly string
I don't need any other thing.

La la la

I know it won't last for long
But something nice is better than nothing at all
