Track Name: So This Has To Do
I once thought I could
get my head in the game
I had to give up
I was going insane
It was a nasty blow
but it's better to know
I once thought I could
get my head in the game


We used to go dancing
shake worries away
it set everything right
until night became day
and we all hurried home
hoping soon to forget
almost seeing the sun rise
until the sun set

Now maps make me nervous
they fill me with dread
How they seem to tease
with the lives I won't have
Passed on too many chances
of playing the fool
I doubt there's a heaven
so this has to do
Track Name: Mild-Mannered Men
Soft-spoken men
In touch with their feelings
Slowly spending their miles

Mild-mannered men
You've met them for dinner
They dress up ever so perfectly

Playlists and podcasts
Comfortable couches
There's some out there made for each of us

But not other people
They don't know what they're doing
They wont do, so you tell yourself

You've been spending way too much time alone

Soft-spoken preachers
Of life changing mantras
Make their way right past your heart

As do throwers of tantrums
Who speak from their livers
And just make you even surer that

Playlists and podcasts
Comfortable couches
There's some out there made for each of us

But not other people
They don't know what they're doing
But they'll talk until the music stops

You've been spending way too much time alone
Track Name: Tropical Resort
Were I to have been a tiger
I suppose I could do nothing wrong
There'd be no allergies to haunt me
And no words to weave into my songs

My instincts could betray me
My instincts would betray me
But I’d never dare to blame them

And all these hours I can taste
They're mine and mine alone to waste
All these hours I can taste
They're mine and mine alone to waste

Were I to have been vacation
I would be no tropical resort
I'd be a funny little cottage
I would be a quirky mountain lodge

You'd be so glad to see me
Something to write home about
You'd be so glad to see me
So much more relieved to leave me

And all these hours I can taste
They're mine and mine alone to waste
All these hours I can taste
They're mine and mine alone to waste
