Track Name: Poor You
Can’t go to Harvard
Kicked out of your band
Not a man of god,
for sure not the man
All you are is what say you hate
You know so much about me

Teach me something wise old boy
Give me answers
Tell me lies
Speak the loudest
so no one doubts you
You’re more dangerous than you know


--chorus---

If you’re so smart
how’d you think you’d get away
You’re just unlucky
You’re just unlucky

No consequences
No boundaries
Make an example out of you!
Poor you! Poor you, poor you, poor you
Poor you (x4)

-- verse --

You’re riding the pretense
of defense
But you never left the offense
Raise your voice
to gain some trust
But you’re part of the problem

Moral high ground?
More like low-brow dirt
First slap on the wrist,
Don’t act like you’re hurt
How can you act like you know it all
When you know nothing about me

--chorus---

If you’re so smart
how’d you think you’d get away
You’re just unlucky
You’re just unlucky

No consequences
No boundaries
They’ll make an example out of you!
Poor you! Poor you, poor you, poor you
Poor you (x4)

--bridge --

You know nothin about me
I wanna know nothin about you
[So much about you
Nothin about me]

--outro--
Teach me something, wise old boy
Give me answers and tell me lies
Speak the loudest so no one doubts you
You’re more dangerous than you know
Track Name: Lonely Dog
Charging forward when you know the
stop is soon
And you know it will hurt you
Stopping if you have to, barely

Using his body
to remember another
What happens in the interim space
Between his heart and his mouth

-- chorus --

I want you to be more than a lonely dog
Validate me kindly, Support me loudly
I want you to be more than a lonely dog
Validate me kindly, Support me loudly

-- Verse --

There’s a secret in the fury
Winds try hard to find their voice
A pair of lonely headlights, pleading
Everything the light touches finds a glow
but my flesh
it stays the same
it stays the same
it stays the same

My heart sleeps at the foot of my bed
Panting, like a lonely dog
Fumbling and repeating
It crawls back in my chest
Let me wander
Let me be here
Why won’t you be more
than a lonely dog?

-chorus-

-Outro-
want you to be more than a lonely
want you to be more than a lonely
want you to be more than a lonely
want you to be more than a lonely dog
Track Name: Hypochondria
Cell phones, microwaves-
I’m cursin’ WebMD
Wishing the Internet
Would just comfort me

The web confirms my fears
I’m a sickly little germ
I should probably stay inside
And never leave my room again

--Chorus--

Surfin’ web MD
Worried bout disease
Can’t tell if I’m sick
Or drowning in anxiety

--bridge--

When will my hypochondria get the best of me ? x2
Track Name: Small Talk
Stuck in an elevator
Ben from accounting makes another dad joke
Another day in the life of a dead man

Cornered in the kitchen
Sally talkin bout her husband’s golf streak
Another day in the life of a sad girl

--chorus--

If you’re not interested in small talk
And I’m not interested in small talk
we’re all not interested in small talk
so why are we still talkin’?

-- Verse --

Holed up in a board room
Bobby’s talkin bout Peyton’s last streak
Another day in the life of a sports man

Rolling my eyes at
a moron mansplaining stocks and cars
Kill me before I become a sad girl

--chorus--

--Bridge--

Keep it cool and
Keep it comfortable
Keep it cool and keep it comfortable
Keep it cool and
keep it comfortable
Keep it cool and keep it comfortable

--Outro--

How are you and
who won the game and
Any plans for the weekend
for the summer or
for 5 years from now?

Whatcha workin on?
How are the kids and
How’s the weather and
it’s fucking FINE!
