Track Name: You Don't Scare Me
I fell off the face of the earth again,
let someone else step into my place.
I’m not coming back to life.

Day after day I’m afraid that you don’t scare me anymore.
I don’t care if I hurt you, I don’t care if I hurt you
and you don’t scare me anymore.

I’m more tethered than you could ever know,
if you want me so badly you should have told me so.
I’m not coming back to life.

Day after day I’m afraid that you don’t scare me anymore.
I don’t care if I hurt you, I don’t care if I hurt you
and you don’t scare me anymore.

I’m so damn tired of losing sleep over the worst nights in my memory.
Sick of remembering what we could have been.
Hey, I don’t make the rules, you never follow through
and you don’t scare me anymore.

Day after day I’m afraid that you don’t scare me anymore.
I don’t care if I hurt you, I don’t care if I hurt you
and you don’t scare me anymore.
Track Name: I Drew You Once In Art Class
I tried to paint a picture of you to prove I still think of you,
but the face I drew, it more resembled mine.
Went to buy you some nice things, but bought a record by The Kinks;
a band you have always told me does not appeal to you in any way.

When will I ever get it right?
Maybe I’ll never treat you right.

Meant to tell you how I felt but I started talking to someone else,
about some brilliant bullshit record I’ve been working on for years.
The love songs all go unreleased, b-sides of lesser memories,
and yet you have been there for me since the very first record I ever wrote myself.

When will I ever get it right?
Maybe I’ll never treat you right.
My eyes won’t settle anywhere, my mind is in the atmosphere.
When will I ever treat you right?

Oh oh, you know, I can be romantic.
Oh oh, you know, I can wear nice clothes.
Oh oh, you know, I can be romantic.
Oh oh, you know…

When will I ever get it right?
Maybe I’ll never treat you right.
I’m gonna leave when you say you wanna leave,
and shut up when you say you need to sleep.
When will I ever treat you right?
Track Name: Mystery Pills
I wonder what they’re gonna do with my body,
and if anything happens to my phone.
I was daydreaming of TV when my heart started beating
well beyond my control.

I texted Cassie and asked if she could get me,
I said “I don’t think I should drive anymore”.
So I laid on the grass outside Olde Naples Bank
and tried to focus on breathing slow.

If I fall down don’t let me fall gently,
my gilded life will be flashing before me,
but I’ll be too distracted baby
to keep track of my stars so lucky.

And in the doctor’s office answering questions
I lied about a couple of things.
So she told me it was likely just a panic attack
and my insurance covered everything.

If I fall down don’t let me fall gently,
my gilded life will be flashing before me,
but I’ll be too distracted baby
to keep track of my stars so lucky.

I just keep saying it’s cool, I only do it with you,
or if I’m trying to fall asleep.
I’m only high on weekends, the 24 hour kids all say it’s cool.
I’m so cool.

If I fall down don’t let me fall gently,
my gilded life will be flashing before me,
but I’ll be too distracted baby
to keep track of my stars so lucky,
to keep track of my stars so lucky,
to keep track of my stars so lucky.
Track Name: Come To Brazil
I think she considers me an acquired taste with a short shelf life,
like an aging prodigy desperate for a discovery.
So I’m looking through my old notebooks trying to find a feeling
I recall to be appealing early in my life.

When they told me about salvation I told them they were wrong,
but as I stand here shaking, oh I pray I’m not alone.

I know what I’m about to say makes me sound like such a jerk,
and I knew what she was thinking so I walked out of the door.
Now I’m thumbing through my contact list, trying to find a friend to call.
I dial Matt Agrella and it goes straight to voice mail.

So I drove down to the Naples Pier and I walked out to the end,
took a picture I’ve taken a thousand times and drove back home again.

When they told me about salvation I told them they were wrong,
but as I stand here shaking, oh I pray I’m not alone. Yes I pray I’m not alone.

She asked me once again if I’m losing my interest,
I think perhaps that question is for you my dear.
Cuz I love you more than I ever have and I don’t want to believe
that one of us is drifting and this time it isn’t me.

When they told me about salvation I told them they were wrong,
but as I stand here shaking, oh I pray I’m not alone.
They told me about salvation, and I still think they were wrong,
but as I stand here shaking, oh I pray I’m not alone.
Yes I pray I’m not alone,
Yes I pray I’m not alone,
Yes I pray I’m not alone.
