Track Name: What Grows Up Must Get Down
a vacation is all I've ever wanted
I just cannot escape these walls
all the people in my life are telling me
"well, John, you've got to get away"

I'll take the extended vacation
to a place that i know well
it's called the padded-cell hotel
where they told me I might find myself
but instead I found the floor
I broke myself upon
from the thought of being exiled
from all the places I've belonged

it's the last time you'll see me
don't try to reach me
they've cut me off

the vacation never fucking happened
I'm still stuck inside these walls
all the people in my life now know about
how displacement has been haunting me

I spend my whole day staring
at the hands on ticking clocks
trying to find a cure for all this
goddamned writer’s block
when everything is lost
and nothing can be found
you can find me at the bus stop
waiting to leave town

sometimes I forget where I am
sometimes I don't know
sometimes I forget where I am
sometimes I struggle to find my home
Track Name: Hooper
when I was young, those were the days
before we went our separate ways
we met each night between those streets
to hide ourselves and find our friends
if I could, I would stay
but it seems soon I must leave here

Fallons and their come-outside calls
shows at skateparks and Whittier Ball
Hooper late night in the summer
I thought this could last forever
mall at Steamtown and South Side Bowl
Cafe Metro, crash at Leo's
hanging jester jams on Willow
this has made me the person I've become

I'll see you soon
I'll be home soon
Track Name: Wolf
I heard the words you spoke to me
but they just ran right through my skull
I never thought you were serious
you were always crying wolf

I owe you a big apology
I owe you a little more respect

I heard the words you spoke to me
but they just ran right through my skull
I never thought you were serious
you were always crying wolf

I never thought you were serious
your words ran through me
your words hold weight
they bring me down
they drag me down
I can't feel you anymore
Track Name: Foliage
since i was born, i've been standing still
i listen to all of your songs
i've never met my mother
i never will

i've seen war
I've seen pain
I have watched you grow old
but you don't notice me at all

I shed my clothes like clockwork
but I don't drink at all
there are holes in my skin
from those who call me home

the wars will never cease
neither will the pain
but you will cease to grow
and I will not

I give you life
don't cut me down
I help you breathe
don't cut me down
Track Name: Pay Attention
what did we learn?

what will this help right now?
about nothing at all
what will this help right now?
in the end nothing at all

what did we learn?

I won't even talk to you one week from now
I won't even answer your calls today
I won't even talk to you three months from now
I won't even answer your calls today

what did we learn?
Track Name: To Live and Die in the Dirty South
I've been here eight years and nothing's changed
a few more roads don't mean a thing
there's nothing I can do and nothing I can use
to help me live my life

I've watched this fire burn
and turn into a pile of coals
this town seems to bury me
under all of these shady trees

we're all trapped, don't you know?
in this humid hell hole
it's the saltwater that makes us drown
we are sinking down

we will hold our breath
we will try our best
we will hold our breath
we will try our best to float

I've watched this fire burn
and turn into a pile of coals
this town seems to bury me
under all of these shady trees
Track Name: Party On
if I could see the signs
I'd have been gone long before
if I could read your mind
I'd have never came this far
but I'm too tired to turn around again
I look all over and I find love at the end

I'm picking up again
I'm moving straight ahead
I can see a light at the end

I'll find love
I will be moved
I'll embrace the hope I feel

if I could see the signs
I'd have been gone long before
if I could read your mind
I'd have never came this far
but I'm too tired to turn around again
I look all over and I find love at the end
Track Name: Warning
me, I try to make this life worthwhile
me, I try to stay in my right mind
yes, I try, but we all fail sometimes
yes, I try to find the good in life

don’t waste your life
don’t waste your time
Track Name: Birdfeeder pt. II (The Reckoning)
I've been feeding birds again
the kindness spreads around
they've landed on my bench again
to listen to their sounds

I have given all I could give
but then I realize I'm wrong
as long as I have love to give
my wealth is infinite

I watch them fly away again
it hurts to say goodbye
I watch them flying back again
and then I realize why

why we do the things we do?
why the birds keep flying through?
I pick my head up and see
the beauty that surrounds me

you should fly on down
why don't you fly down?
fly on down
Track Name: Wookie Blaylock
stay up late
early rise
seize your day
make your life

feel free to be you

don't be late
don't be on time
don't hesitate
just live your life

feel free to be you
