Track Name: Coriander
Coriander
Wish I could understand her
Wish she would take my hand, errr…
And we could fly away

Fate would lead her
To the coffee shop that I’m always in
And I know you want to spend the day
Making a new friend
Oh Yeah, Oh yeah
Oh Yeah, Oh yeah

She bought my hula hoop
And when she hugged me
All I’d think to do was swoop in for a kiss
(Repeat)

Coriander
Yeah she’s a mind expander
No one could have planned her
But she would come my way

Fate would lead her
To the coffee shop that I’m always in
And I know you want to spend the day
Making a new friend
Oh Yeah, Oh yeah
Oh Yeah, Oh yeah

She bought my hula hoop
And when she hugged me
All I’d think to do was swoop in for a kiss
(Repeat)
Track Name: Driven in Reverse
Why am I stuck writing all these words and all these chords about the
Town I’m forced to live in, Should I go ahead have one more drink
At the bar? I know I want to but I don’t want to give in
And I am a star in my own world, but only with the coins that I throw in

Spinal chords and injuries are keeping me from seeing you
I don’t know why I am here, but I know I have none to fear
Wanna preach my own gospel, but I don’t wanna come off hostile
And I want to go to bed, but I don’t want to see red in my eyes
Lies, lies lies
I can’t see and I am blind

Why am I stuck driving in reverse? I don’t think I’m perverse
But I cannot forsee my love. I don’t know where I’ll find the love
Anyone and anywhere. I want it all, but I don’t care
I don’t know how to write the words, I don’t think I could write the chords
That is all I want to say, but you’ll have to listen anyway
And I don’t think you know what I am saying, but you can ask me
When I’m playing a show
That you should go
Track Name: Flipped off a Sign
Think I’m falling asleep at the wheel
Think you know the way I feel
Think I know how my life ain’t real
Think I might need to steal a meal

And I just can’t stop thinking
My mouth won’t stop drinking
Gaslight won’t stop blinking
My body won’t stop sinking into the bed

All the people pass me by
Some honk and some say hi
What’s the difference between the city and the sky?
Think I’d rather just get high

I just can’t stop thinking
My mouth won’t stop drinking
Gaslight won’t stop blinking
This town won’t stop shrinking in front of my eyes
Track Name: Toilet Seat
Last night you came home from the donut shop
You went to my house, needed a place to stop
You asked, “Could I bring some friends?”
Did I know this is how it would end?
I don’t know what I said, but then you came over

We both went to the same high school
We both think getting high is cool
You crashed your car into my life
And now I don’t think it is right
That you left so late last night

You locked yourself inside my bathroom
Using that straw just like a vacuum
I find it funny how
You wouldn’t spare a line
And still you let me smoke you out
Out. Smoked you out. Smoked you right out.
Oh Whoa Oh. Smoked you right out.
Track Name: Tree
none
Track Name: Stineway
Stine
Your jokes are always clean-a
You’re never, ever mean-a
And we all miss you, yes we do

Always the best one in the choir
Your talents I admired
So I wrote a song for you,
Won’t you sing along Kirstine?

Oh, why’d you have to go
All the way to Chicago
Life’s a strange bird, I know

Oh, why’d you have to go
All the way to Chicago
Then again you’d never know

Stine
You broke your Nalgene
I don’t know what that mean-a
Oh and she burned her shoes
Oh yes you do

Stine
You’re besties with my family
And that is how I randomly fell in love with you
Yes it’s true

Oh, why’d you have to go
All the way to Chicago
I was just getting to know

Oh, why’d you have to go
All the way to Chicago
That windy city blows

Oh, why’d you have to go
All the way to Chicago
I guess you’d never know

Oh, why’d you have to go
All the way to Chicago
To star in your own show
Track Name: My Song 21
Even in summer, I tend to fall
If I don’t help you, well that’s not my fault
I think we’ll make it, I’m gonna call it
Then we won’t worry about nothing in our wallets

Thinking ahead to before we are dead
What you told me, well that’s not what I read
End of the day and I just want to go to bed
If it makes more sense I’ll sing this instead

Can’t you just taste it?
Better not waste it
We need to face this
And we can’t erase this
We gotta go
We got a show
We won’t let go
And we cannot say no
I don’t know how far this journey will go
We need to follow their single road
I have been tumbling
And I have been growing
Where is the singing?
I don’t hear the ringing
Track Name: MindLife,FindLife
I don’t mind you in my life
But I don’t find you in my life

I don’t mind you in my life
But I don’t find you all my life

I know
Where did you go?
Ohhh
Where did you go?
Ohhh
Where did you to go?
Ohhh
Sing this tune back to me

Oooh
Don’t mind it
Oooh
Can’t find it

Oooh
Mind it
Oooh
Find it
Track Name: 2 Halves Make a Whole (SOS)
She borrowed my books, then she found a new boy
Treat my heart like a dog might treat a chew toy
Wrestled with it, then fell to the ground
Can’t seem to put this fucking book down

Can’t seem to put this down
Can’t put the book down.
I can’t put this book down
I can’t seem to put the book down

Charles Bukowski and Palahniuk and Fleming
I won’t take them back
I don’t have no friends to read the things that I am writing

I can’t seem to put this down
I can’t put the book down
I can’t seem to put her down
I can’t put this book on the ground

I can’t seem to put this down
I can’t put this book down
I can’t seem to put the book down
I can’t seem to put her down
Track Name: Carry On, Eggy Poo Poo
Maybe just acquaintances
But I recall we were best friends
And as I write these sentences
Wish more time we’d spent as us
More time at the beach
To talk and get high
You wouldn’t let me kiss you
But I sure would try

Lives can always drift apart
Don’t you even get me started
But I though we were smarter
Only made it that much harder
To see you with a new boy
Part of my heart is now destroyed

Now I think of you today
Miles and miles away
Track Name: Frosted Fakes
Glass of water to revive my face
One handful of frosted flakes
This town could be full of fakes
And I want to take its money and leave

I don’t know why I went down here
I don’t think I need to make appearances
I don’t think I need to fear my parents’ sins
Track Name: Italy Song
Sultry summer day in Napoli
A girl and the boy of her dreams
Happily write things
To say to each other
So they can kiss in front of others
And prove to me that lovers still exist

Birds will sing the chorus
As we run into the forest
Amidst this foreign land
For two weeks we had planned
To spend with all the ones we love

His father loved to tell stories
And dissipated my worries
I know she’s in good hands
And now I understand
Exactly why I’m here (Why I knew)

Train from Naples to Milan
Passengers will sing along
Perhaps I don’t belong
But I will someday
In a city once buried
By Pompeii
Track Name: Geneva
Geneva
Geneva
Geneva
Geneva
A stray, her
We saved her
Despite our behavior
A grave here
We gave her
A home and a savior
I don’t know how I could need her
As much as she needs me
I’m sorry
So come in and lie down

Geneva
Don’t wanna leave ya
Don’t know how to find ya
Geneva, Geneva
Oh no, Oh Yeah!

A stray I have saved
And in spite my behavior
She’s in the grave
And we gave her
What we hate



















I don’t want to think more about it
But it’s all I do
So fuck you
And you will love
What I want to say
OK?

I am a saint
I do not want to be saved yet
And spite my behavior
I don’t want my grave here
I gave her everything
She never wanted
But that doesn’t mean
She wanted a Waldman

I don’t know how I could leave her
As much as she needs me
And now we don’t have anyone

Whoa, no

Geneva
Geneva
I don’t wanna leave ya
Geneva
Geneva
I’ll never never never never
Leave ya
