Track Name: Not What You Want
take a look and see where I've been focused
looks like I've been in the wrong
tell me if you even think that it matters
you know enough to know that it doesn't feel good
get an idea of what the right thing to do is
with shallow water in the tray
you scoop it up from the ocean, hold it so closely
hoping that it will not evaporate

he had his ladder on the wrong skyscraper
climbing for a couple months
all it took was you to look up and laugh to cause him to fall and land with a thud
had my machete chopping through the wrong jungle
when only i could call it off
its not what you want its the foam at the top
but you can check it out for yourself if you want
Track Name: Lame Night
I DONT WANNA GO FOR A NIGHT ON THE TOWN
I NEVER HAVE A GOOD TIME WALKING AROUND
KNOCK KNOCK KNOCKIN ON YOUR DOOR
EVERYTIME WE HANG ITS THE SAME AS BEFORE
I DONT WANNA GO TO THE MOVIES
AND I DONT WANNA GO TO THE MALL
ITS NEVER ANY FUN AT ALL
YOU GOT NOTHIN TO SAY? THEN DONT TALK

WE'RE ALL JUST TRYIN TO HAVE FUN
BUT IF YOURE TRYING THEN YOURE TRYING TOO HARD
THERES AN ELEPHANT SEETHING IN THE LIVING ROOM
YOULL PRETEND ITS NOT THERE WHILE YOU LOOK AT YOUR PHONE
WE'RE ALL JUST TRYIN TO HAVE FUN
WE MUST NOT BE TRYIN HARD ENOUGH
IS THIS REALLY HOW YOURE SPENDING YOUR DAYS?
IF YOU REALLY DONT LIKE IT THEN CHANGE

DONT YOU THINK WE HAD A LAME NIGHT?
LETS HOPE THAT ITS THE LAST TIME
BUT DONT WORRY IT IS ALRIGHT, NEXT TIME
WE'RE GONNA HAVE A GOOD TIME
Track Name: Nirvana
i desired you by my side
when you were so far away
now i look and you're walking outside
for reasons unexplained
I'm breaking into your house it feels weird
it was only a dream now its real
now let the superstitious mind that is bleeding paranoia pant the picture before my eyes

com in up from the ground
comes the black ball imagined that you gotta get around

when there's nobody home
inviting dangerous strangers that will never wanna go

if there's a castle in the sky, show me where I'm going
if i see an image of this and i prepare for it
if i did this with my mind can you show me how to use it right
under my control, yes i wanna go

throw the boomerang
now await the blade
there's magic in the air
no need to be afraid
so walk through the pain, and reap the benefit
the alchemist
Track Name: Beach Ball Crazy
so look at you sitting back
waiting for the perfect time to attack
clean your room and make my bed
all your man power letting you down
might be time you found a new back road in your town
you got no business hanging around

the kids are playing in the sand
dont hang onto the beach ball as long as you can
just cause you know that the fun will end
you're not gonna see it again
somethings got a noose around my neck
leaving plenty of slack somehow i always forget
peel off the rope feel the heat on my back

architect of the ego waiting for the green light to smile and invite
just to say that you're not ready for others eyes
while time is passing by, i never wanna die
laughable how you stand waist deep in a lake contemplating your own death
cause ill feel better when i have nothing left

have a ball, beach ball crazy
have a ball, beach ball crazy
