Track Name: Jeopardy
Wait for me up there
You're safe from me I abandon
Not anymore no
Not anymore

And playfully I glare
Don't wait for me I
I've landed
And once you say it's yours then it ain't yours anymore

Pray for me
I swear I prayed for then I panicked (I prayed then I panicked)
Why I keep leaving it up to you?

You got caught lying it's getting old
You win sometimes and most times know
You got caught crying this ain't so
In them tough times just hang low
Let it go

I'd do your dishes but you can't leave that up to me
And cue your misses
But I keep leaving that up to you

You got caught lying it's getting old
You win sometimes and most times know
You got caught crying this ain't so
In them tough times just hang low
Let it go
Track Name: Anywhere
I can't be that vain you don't know the half Laine
What other crippling back pains a backpack for me to trap pain?
What's that gain?
For all you're praying and wishing you're still waiting around
Say you're happy now whistling out
A page of thoughts I really ought to read aloud
Freedom found freedom lost freedom found
I'll be buried by noon it's eleven now
Sitting down take a breath then it all in
Born in June laid to rest in a ballroom
And i'm all in
Ears eyes heart and soul
But I'm hardly ever sick when I call in
And if all it is is getting ahead
I'll be around at the same time playing it dead
I'll be around at the same time playing it

You're fine though you're scared
You're fine
Your minds gonna make it anywhere
You're mine though you swear
You're mine
My minds gonna make it anywhere
In time though you'll care
You're mine
Your mind gonna make it anywhere
It's fine though you swear
You're mine
You're mine go and make it anywhere

Live and learn back to the former
Whole dollar fourth quarter
Slow scholar with an itch to grow
I'ma let em know out of principle
Turn off your mind and find you'll start feeling
Please burn down the keys before the building
Feel in the margin life through an empty page
Lose my mind find that the scent she gave
Reminds me of times of some better days
Lost memories I don't care anyway
But you live and learn and the latter
After time just drives what matters

You're fine though you're scared
You're fine
Your minds gonna make it anywhere
You're mine though you swear
You're mine
My minds gonna make it anywhere
In time though you'll care
You're mine
Your mind gonna make it anywhere
It's fine though you swear
You're mine
You're mine go and make it anywhere
Track Name: A Place To Live
You'll find a place to live

It seems I'm in my head again
I can't even go anywhere else
Don't try to feed me medicine
And if I need these yet again
I know I can't go anywhere else
Ugh but

If it's only one time I could kick it
If it's only one time I could live
You're barely waking up now
Ain't ya kid?

Blankets in backseats as fast as that seems
Some autograph on the walls of rap fiends
You're waking up to windows from bad dreams
Where all the freaks can live
And waiting on yourself to do something
Other than sitting and shrugging
Like it's nothing

And some day after all the sipping stout and kicking
I'll run way back to you

And if it's only one time you could kick it
if it's only one time we could live
You're barely waking up now
Ain't ya?
Track Name: foodcoma
If all I can't unsee can't halt my love
Yeah I believe we're alright
Yeah I'm saying we're alright love

All fall I planned to be in awe I shucks
And I'ma leave with all my stuff

It's like I can't keep going this way I feel I need a change
But I won't even decide to
I don't mind you

Are we playing something new?
Are we playing something new?
That's all that I'm saying

Before I am damned to be a short ride
Trust that I'd open your door wide
So we gonna make some more I must

Don't have to fall back I mean it
All that to make you call back
And leaning on tracks to tell you all that
I'd read it all back to make you react accordingly

It's like I can't keep going this way I feel I need a change
It's like I can't keep going this way I feel I need a change
But I won't even decide to and
I don't mind you

See that's just something you say when you've got nothing to lose
Grab the shuffle and the duffle and buckle up your shoes
Start to struggle a bit while you're fumbling your shit
A remark made in jest something about your chest
And a car made for sex and a riff that won't quit
Awkwardly built to spill a drink on your tits
Try to kiss and miss or make up and disinfect
One another we say so all summer and insist

Oh I will not involve in bosserin' beating around in implausible abound
Track Name: Never Be The Same
I go and get em baby
I go to get em they gone left with all of our things
I go and get em baby
I go to get em they gone that's the problem with them
I go and get em baby
I go to get em with a bone and everything
I go and get em baby
I go to get em it haunts me
I'll never be the same
Track Name: Manayusta
Hey I'm not trying to be the man I used to
It goes away
You've been flying had a man now you stuck
Nowhere to start
You made up something that no one believes
Knowing if it falls apart
She can't buy nothing I can lie for free no
That ain't me though

Leaving with your head down first
Baby you were just what they said now
See you're instead
Leaving with your head down first
And maybe you were

Before it goes
When it's always up to you
When loving you always just won't do
I won't be there

Hey I'm not trying to be the man I used to
It goes away
Would you quit crying through your hands?
I'm used to following my heart
You can't be nothing you don't try to be
Knowing if it falls apart, my love
You won't mean any kind of less to me no

There's only time it's not a movie

Leaving with your head down first
Baby you were just what they said now
See you're instead
Leaving with your head down first
And maybe you were
And you can let your hair down first
Maybe you were
Fuck what they said now
Get yours instead
Leaving with your head down first
And maybe you were
Track Name: On Sunny Days
On sunny days I'm inside feeling lavender
The pain in his heart hurts worse than the catheter
But the feelings they say stop feeling new never do

Giving you a run sitting in the passenger
My girl my girl
Can't get anyone to stay mad at her
But the things that they say never get old always do
At least that's what I've been told by you
Track Name: Casanova
Should have known Casanova
Been a long time sober
Say I'm on my own but I don't know

Should have known that's a no but
Spent a long time sober
And I heard that before but
We all know

And it ain't moving off me
And it ain't letting go
While I wait around
A while around
I smile look down and I know

Should have known Casanova
Spent a long time sober
Say I'm on my own but I don't know

Should have known that's a no but
Spent a long time sober
Yeah no no oh I don't know

And it feels like it ain't letting me live
I ain't letting that go
We can't take it

And it feels like I'm not letting you live
I'm not letting that go
You can't take it

Should have known Casanova
Spent a long time sober
Say I'm on my own but I don't know

Should have known that's a no but
Spent a long time sober
And I heard that before but
We all know

You spent a long time sober
Said I'm on my own but yeah no no no
Oh I don't know

Should have known Casanova
Spent a long time sober
Say I'm on my own but I don't know

Should have known that's a no but
Spent a long time sober
Said I'm on my own but I don't know
I don't

Nothing's wrong
Nothing's wrong
No nothing's wrong
I don't know
Nothing's wrong
No no nothing's wrong
I don't know (I don't)
I don't

To all you who ate it up past the fine print
Prescribed by
State provided
You play it once that's alright quit
Demised by something worth trying
You breaking up past your prime pimps
Like "that's my bitch, bumping my shit"
And waking up nine to five kids like
Let's get high quick
Track Name: Issues
I made her wake
I made her wake up
Falling asleep listening to you wake up
I'm asleep!
Listening to you wake up
I fall asleep
Listening to you wake up

I met an old friend he sees you as a nuisance
This generation don't cease on confusing
Ma's like "your crew? when? nah, please whatcha doing?”
Saw you going backward
It's easy not to act hurt
Hey can you follow?
Understating
You could be a raven
I could be your Headgear Allan Poe
Shoot me on the pavement
My poor soul
Use me on arraignment
Fool me into saying
That we couldn't relate when
There's no one else worth saving
True

Wonder what the fragrance
They went easy on the making you
Don't wonder what they're saying
It's easy are they making you?
If you could buy me patience
Then I could find the time for two

If I'ma learn from all my miscues
I need a copy of my issues back
If I'ma learn from all my miscues
I'll need a copy of my issues back
And I'm not saying that I miss you
Just need a copy of my issues back

Oh I walked around your house and
You weren't around yet
Who's making coffee?
Gooselegging probably
You staying off me but
How can you?
How can I do?

Wonder what the fragrance
They went easy on the making you
Don't wonder what they're saying
It's easy are they making you?
If you could buy me patience
Then I could find the time for two

If I'ma learn from all my miscues
I need a copy of my issues back
If I'ma learn from all my miscues
I'll need a copy of my issues back
And I'm not saying that I miss you
Just need a copy of my issues back

Oh you're dead now
So you've said now

I can find no reason why I hide away from you
Track Name: Corners
I waited up all night
I waited up all god damn night
I waited up all night
I waited up til morning oh that's right
You want another
Must be so sad to be you
And I don't care I swear like all the rest of em do

I have to say I'm happy to see you here
I'll wait the whole night through for you

All eyes vacant on the scene
And we're both saying awful things
And to start it was like "ayo baby"

But underneath this skin and bones
I know that I'm alone in it
She said she needs some time to roam
How do I get over it?
Then tries to reach me by the phone
Saying how she's grown from it
And I don't wanna waste my days any longer
Girl I'll be singing out

I waited up
I'm sorry instead of fucking up and driving
I went to bed
Oh stop you know that's not me
Don't taunt me I aint shaken up
I know you wouldn't drop me
You love me too much

I have to say it's crazy to see you here
I wept the whole night through over you

All eyes vacant on the scene
And we're both saying awful things
And to start it was like "ayo baby"

But underneath this skin and bones
I know that I'm alone in it
He said she needs some time to roam
How do I get over it?
Then tries to reach me by the phone
Saying how he's grown from it
And I don't wanna waste my days any longer
Boy I'll be singing out

You know our corners crumbled us
