Track Name: All That I Know
I'll come home and lie in bed for weeks
Until I finally fall asleep and dream
Everything's turned out okay
I don't need you
You don't need me
I'm fine asleep
I'll stay asleep

But I'm trying to leave Reno now
Again I'm back and just as down

I'll wake up on the day
Two years have quickly passed away
And nothing's changed
Except that you have moved away
We'll probably never be okay
And I'm still here
Forever here

But I'm going to leave again
Drunken smiles with my friends
Because it's the only thing I know how to do
But at some point it's got to come to an end

I'll come home and lie in bed for weeks
Until I finally fall asleep and dream
Everything's turned out okay
I don't need you
You don't need me
I'm fine asleep
I'll stay asleep

But I'm trying to leave Reno now
Again I'm back and just as down
Thought I could find someone to embrace
Maybe in a better place
And I don't need you
You don't need me
I'm fine asleep
I'll stay asleep
Track Name: Help To Forget
Laying with the lights on
Running through my head
I didn't drink enough
To slow it down inside

And if she is out there
I hope to find her soon
Take me away from this lonely brain
That's missing you

Twelve ounces
To forget
What you said
I can't think about it

Someday will I complete
All the pages in this book
It took years to fill the last
With ebbs and flows
I never crossed out words
I used to have direction
Now I've deleted the past
To many times to remember

Twelve ounces
To forget
What I said
I can't sleep about it

How many lonely nights like this one will it take
To fill these pages with memories wilfullly erased?

Twelve ounces
To forget
What we said
Track Name: Stupider Chords, Stupider Words, Stupider Song
There are some times out on the road
When you think about your home
And then you start to miss your friends
Those miles never seem to end

But then the show starts
You're starting to get drunk
You realize this is what you live for
And you remember to have fun

Because if this is not fun
Then what's the point in trying
Might as well give up
On these dreams that are dying
But it's you my friends
Who keep me coming around
So let's get drunk
when I come to your town

There are some times out on the road
When you think about your home
And then you start to miss your friends
Those miles never seem to end

But then the show starts
And you're starting to get drunk
You realize this is what you live for
And you remember to have fun

Because if this is not fun
Then what's the point in trying
Might as well give up
On these dreams that are dying
But it's you my friends
Who keep me coming around

So let's get drunk
Wake up in the morning and feel shitty
We've got to drive to the next city
Because it's our job to get drunk
With another fucking awesome group of friends

I know that this is still fun
So I will keep on trying
Never will give up
On these dreams until I'm dying
So let's party my friends
And I'll keep coming around
So we can get drunk
When I come to your town
Track Name: Sleep
Today I suppress the same thoughts
As two hundred or so others
In perfect synchronization
Will this be the end of it all

We walk on, we sit down
Some take drugs, others sleep
I know we had that thought
I know we had the same thought
We had the same thought

I often have this recurring dream
I am running as planes fall from the sky
Planes of all kinds, big or small
Attempt to crash into me

I can run but they can see
I guess it doesn't feel like kamikaze
I don't remember one ever actually killing me
But it's horrific
It's horrific

I'll awake in a cold sweat
I'll awake in a cold sweat

I'll get sick again
Everything spins around
And I will sleep again

Keep puking
Keep sleeping
Keep puking
Keep sleeping
Keep sleeping
Keep sleeping

I'll awake in a cold sweat
Track Name: Weak Week
Getting lost in nostalgia again
I put on the records that bring me back to that place
If I could only open my eyes to the inspiration
I don't eat enough
It's a bed with no sheets
No comfort without the warmth
I'll drink this one for you
But it's the last one

It's our first drink of the year
It drops off of my face on to your strings
We will have a smoke and sing along with sad songs
These old dead strings resonate deeply tonight

I hope you're lying next to him
Thinking about what we could have been
I'm drinking alone again

You told me you loved me
I never told you why I couldn't respond for months
I could never repay you for the years of support
Sleep is for the week
Maybe that's why I can't lift this pen
Always you in my brain stabbing at my memory

I'd rather sleep all week
Sleep is for the week
I'd rather sleep all week

It's our first drink of the year
It drops off of my face on to your strings
We will have a smoke and sing along with sad songs
These old dead strings resonate deeply tonight
