Track Name: 651
Young love opens her eyes
She's blind, she can't see

Everyday I hear love say
"Give me your number and I'll give you mine

651 call my number

Now she's got those sunglasses
So now the world won't know

Everyday I hear love say
"Give me your number and I'll give you mine"

651 call my number

A needle goes into her eye
Trying to kill what she can't

Everyday I hear love say
"Give me your number and I'll give you mine

651 call my number
Track Name: Fiji Dub
Track Name: Mongo
Shoes were torn and I'm all alone

You know, you know you know

Come with me and you'll see
Just come with me
Track Name: Hormones Dub
"Jak, what are you thinking about?"

"Guitar stuff, i guess"
Track Name: brother
I can't just leave it where it stands
like a pile of rocks that falls
i try to build it up to no avail
I keep trying, i keep trying but all i do is fail
And i can't let it go it's the edge of the cliff
If i let go, i'm done, i'm gone
And i can't handle that i'm no cowboy
I can't ride this mechanical bullshit no more
I'd wish it all away, but it's stuck, engraved
tattooed on my brain
And i try and i try so hard to forget
all the memories, my friends, and my old love
try leave it all behind but it's still right here
just a couple blocks down the road
or an hour drive into the country
where all the people wear cowboy boots and play hockey
and i don't fit in and i don't want to
and i stay awake writing in pain, shock, and regret
of decisions i made, words i said
all those things i've done
in the morning i wish it'd all wash away like a
brand new wave
and it ebbs and it flows
and the tide carries all that shit out to sea

And i hope she remembers me because i still goddamn do
i never meant to her what she meant to me
and i drained myself out for her
i had my bad thoughts but i mean who doesn't?
she was a poison floating around me for way too long
and love is the antidote and lust is spiders
that crawl around your room at nite and in the showers
all the lies that have been fed to me
they just try to stop the blow of how life really feels
and what it really is
a disguise to make you feel good about yourself
except there's nothing except thin air

it's a shame
Track Name: Placebo
sun is high with blue skies
off again with all my friends, off to be alone again

i'm done with her, and i'm done with you
let's go now let's go, let's go be alone

you don't know how it feels
Track Name: woods I
i walk into the woods
nothing seen and nothing heard
i walk around and look where we are
i'm trying hard to think right now

well light the spark
grab me and throw me into time
make me warped and make me twisted
make me laugh and make me listen

i can't keep my focus
this world is turning round and round
as i rise i feel the ground lift me
well raise me up
make me warped and make me twisted
make me laugh and make me listen

i breathe in so deeply
that i can't feel the air in my lungs
i have turned and turned completely
into someone old and new just like you
Track Name: Karma
now i know why
know why i can't be found anywhere
i'm everywhere i'm in your mind
you know you can't find me and that's alright
because i'm gone
you know i'm gone
i'm far away
i can't explain
but that's ok

i'm nowhere, yeah i'm nowhere you can find me
i'm nowhere babe where i am is alright, it's alright
but i don't need your company because i'm fine
yeah i'm nowhere yeah i'm nowhere
babe i'm gone

you see me and i see you watching me
and i'm alright and you're alright and we're fine
and it goes on because everything must go on
it's alright and i'm alright
and it's fine

Track Name: Soda Fountain

going to drown my sorrows down at the soda fountain
i'm need of love down at the soda fountain

you don't know what you want
you don't know what you need
i don't know what i'm going to get at the gas station

she left me all alone i'm going to the soda fountain
going to drown my sorrows down at the soda fountain
i'm in need of a friend down at the soda fountain
going to get some and go to the soda fountain

I got some friends
they treat me well, they treat me fine
but i still feel alone all the time

I miss my love yeah i miss her so much
yeah but she don't feel like i feel for her
it's alright, yeah it's ok
i think about her too much anyways

she left me all alone i'm going to the soda fountain
going to drown my sorrows down at the soda fountain
I don't know what to think, i don't know what to do
Think i'm going to stay here at the soda fountain
Track Name: her
she's got that blond brown hair
she's got that blond brown hair
and those faded deep brown eyes
should of called them hazel

Normally i don't dread seeing her
but i dreaded seeing her tonight
it's time to put out the truth
bring us into the light

"you don't know how much it bothers me"
i said, "yes i do"
she said. "i don't wanna chain you"
"there's someone perfect out there for you"

now tomorrow that trains going run me over
and she tied me to the tracks
well i always thought the fact was that
opposites attract

Well i don't know if it's old habit
or if i really love her
well i don't know if it's old habit
but i know old habits die hard
