Track Name: Whatever Today Is
You sit around and wonder why a former life has passed you by,
But it's not returning.
Nothing there to place the blame.

Why can't things just be the same?
Let me keep my better name.
You'll be disappointed if you're thinking I'm the same.

You're in a class without a clue that they're in charge of naming you,
In the guise of learning.
And there's nothing left to do.

Why can't fun just come to you?
Turn to God for something new,
If you need,
Or you'll be looking back at nothing at the age of 60.

Did I waste my "Wonder Years"?
And what happened to all the fears of my youth?
When looking back at nothing doesn't feel the same,
You take it out on anyone, but you're to blame,
You're never looking forward to whatever today is.
Track Name: The Ballad of Chill Phil
So I walk,
With my headphones on and a cigarette in my hand.
I hear 'em talk.
Well, I guess I can't, but I'm happier pretending I can.

Just go about your day.

I'm falling away from here.
I'm falling away.
I'm falling away from here.

So I lay,
I'm staring up, another charming girl on my left.
I drift away,
Picking up the pieces in a body that I never left.

Go about your day.

I'm falling away from here.
I'm falling away.
I'm falling away from here.

So I walk,
With my headphones on, another cigarette in my hand.
And there I stand.

I'm falling away from here.
I'm falling away.
I'm falling away from here.
Track Name: [Eleven]
Haze of blue,
Looking down.
I look at you,
Your disappointed frown.

And I'm down the rabbit hole,
I'm falling fast and coming up.
I'm alone, and I've been for some time now.
Since you've been gone,
I'm falling fast and coming up.
I'm alone, and it's been coming for some time.

Passing through,
Yellow flowers turning brown.
Misconstrue my undistorted round.

And I'm down the rabbit hole,
I'm falling fast and coming up.
I'm alone, and I've been for some time now.
Since you've been gone,
I'm falling fast and coming up.
I'm alone, and it's been coming for some time.

(And I'm down the rabbit hole...)
Track Name: Better Judgment
You've got the silly boy in your head.

You know he knows just what he's doing,
He's done this before.

You've got the silly boy in your bed.

You know he knows just what he's doing,
He's done this before.

I'm so afraid of this creature that we've made out of you and out of me.
Track Name: Sorry Boy
I hate that you say that I pushed you away,
Because that wasn't me.

And him,
To him I'll say,
"You're happy for today, but you just wait and see."

It wasn't what you had yesterday.
She wasn't what you had yesterday.
God save your soul,
You sorry boy, sorry boy.
I'm sorry, boy, sorry boy.

I think I'll start to pray that I'll be swept away.
At least turn off my brain.
Please don't leave me alone in a room with just my phone.
Because I'll go insane.

I lay awake every night,
Simply wishing that I'll fall asleep.
And nothing is calming me down,
My thoughts are far from complete.
I'm losing my mind in here.
I'm losing my mind in here.

It wasn't what you had yesterday.
She wasn't what you had yesterday.
God save your soul,
You sorry boy, sorry boy.
I'm sorry, boy, sorry boy.
