Track Name: Walter
lyrics:
walter
how long
have you been away from home?
not long at all
walter
how long
have u been singing your song?
not long at all

walter says
“I’m not the boy ur looking for,
at least not anymore”
watching cars just driving by
Thats how he wants to spend his time

[walter hook again]

walter says
“im not the boy ur looking for,
at least not anymore”
he will watch the cars go by
till the sun hears him cry
“im not the boy ur looking for,
at least not anymore”
watching cars just driving by
thats how he wants to spend his time

long live walter
he’s playing by the rules
he does what he has to do
Track Name: Geek
lyrics:
turn my thoughts into grass
and sit and read all day
feel her feet as they sink
rest her head on my hopes
and hold me down

and my hurried thoughts
run to you
and my earthquake hands
shake when I

sifting through smaller smiles
i live between her eyes
where she can't see
just a boy small and green
so hold me up
now

and my hurried thoughts
race to you
and my earth quake hands
shake when i
stand still

[bass solo]
Track Name: Plane Song
lyrics:

plane song plane song
i'm so high
plane song plane song
i'm so hi
i find myself dentist's waiting room
i like to use airplane bathrooms
i will never ever lie to you
plane song plane song
i'm so high
plane song for the longest time

it's not the way
you thought i'd say
all you tell me
i'm not dreaming
it took a while for me
i was ready
it took a while for me
i was trying too

plane song plane song im so high
plane song plane song im so high
i hear your voice from the hallway
i like to use airplane bathrooms
i will never ever lie to you
plane song plane song im so hi
plane song for the longest time

it's not the way you thought i'd say
all you tell me i'm not dreaming
it took a while for me
i was ready
it took a while for me
i was trying too
Track Name: You Again (We Can't Be Friends)
lyrics:
if you said you wanted
i wouldn't even mind oh boy
i wouldn't even mind oh man
if you said you needed
i wouldn't make you stay oh boy
wouldn't make you s t ay
if i told you how long
i've been waiting here oh man
for the longest time you know
if you wanna show me
i swear i'll never tell no one
i swear i'll never tell

if you said you wanted
if you said you needed
i wouldn't even mind oh boy
i wouldn't even mind oh man
i wouldn't make you stay oh boy
wouldn't make u stayyyy

then some feedback pitches down and fades out and it goes to the next song
Track Name: Bit My Tongue
lyrics:
i bit my tongue last week
it makes it hard to speak
i don't believe in heat
i bit my tongue last week

i've done it
i've done it all before
now that you mention it
i feel like i'm missing
something big

i don't love what i do
around you
i don't love what i do
but i love U

i bit my tongue last week
it makes it hard to speak
he don't believe in heat
i bit my tongue my tongue last week

i've done it
i've done it all before
now that you mention it
i feel like i'm missing
something big
something that needs to be
something that ya need to seee

i bit my tog last week
it makes it hard 2 SPEAK
Track Name: Poughkeepsie (feat. Emma Lee)
lyrics:
don't try your luck it's not
the same as before
don't go too far you might
forget who u are
u r

do you wanna get coffee
tell me that u rly want me
im in poughkeepsie when do you miss me
i sit in kline what's on your mind
hang out in people's lobbies
i bet that they love their mommies

[emma's verse]
don't try your luck
it's not the same as before
don't go too far you might
(and wash it off)
forget who u r

do ya wanna get coffee
tell me that u rly want me
im in poughkeepsie when do you miss me
i sit in kline what's on your miind
hang out in people's lobbies
i bet that they love their mommies
i bet that they miss their mommies

and wash it off
it all
and wash it off
it aaaaaallll

[aidan's feedback goes wild] [and then 'horses' starts]
Track Name: Horses
lyrics:
you know i'm missing years
lines upon my wall
and the clutter sits inside my head
i should clean it but i won't

and i'll wear my coat
(i stay dry i know it's not my fault)
and i'll get rained on anyway
cause my feet always drag
(i stay dry i know it's not my fault)
oh man

there r a lot of things
that i would like to know
if i could clear my head
i try my best and see

if i wear my coat
(i stay dry i know it's not my fault)
and i get rained on anyway
cause my feet always drag
(i stay dry i know it's not my fault)
oh man

[then there's a bunch of feedback and elliot plays the chords on piano and we shout the words in julian's living room]
Track Name: What I No
lyrics:
i've got rocks in my pocket
and i've got holes in all my socks
my feet get cold it hurts to walk

i tell you what i know
you've heard it all
you tell me what u no
i wish i'd been there

i've got sand in my eyelids
i've got feet that always hurt
i scratch my head for what it's worth

i sweat it
can't shake it

[then everything pitches up 1253 cents and then the album is over oops]
