Track Name: Halfway to Halloween
It's New Years day.
I kissed a couple boys last night.
I blew a chance with a girl I really like.
Now it's 12:21 and I'm alone
In a Taco Bell parking lot.
I don't have much to offer you,
But I sure fucking try to get it right.

But it never turns out right.

Now it's Halloween, well, I mean,
It's a 'Halfway to Halloween' party, anyways.
And I'm talking with somebody that I don't really know.
And you're inside taking shots with Michelangelo.
I'm nervous and I wanna go anywhere else.

I'm such a mess and it's barely 10:05.
"But I wanna go home and lay down for the night."
Track Name: Honey Pot
Hello my friend the honey pot!
I hope you're good to get my head again.
Sheltering from thunderstorms
Underneath my crooked little tent.

100 acres aint enough for me
I need a little room to breathe.

Alex meets me at the bar
We have a couple drinks and then some more.
We act like kids with stilted hearts,
We drink too much and then we fall apart.

100 acres aint enough for me
I need a little room to breathe.
Track Name: Something Natural
Credit card copay hospital visits.
Spend my nights feeling restless:
Thinking of you with fever chills,
Keeping you at arms length.
It's not fair, but it never is.
I just wanna feel something natural.

All I ever wanted was some sleep.
All I ever needed was some company.

County fairs, four leaf clovers.
I'm impaired, tripping over
Every step but you were there for me.
And I'm so sorry, I just don't get it.
My stupid brain is so complicated.
I just wanna turn it off for you, for good.

All I ever wanted was some sleep.
All I ever needed was some company.
Track Name: The Cat Song
Ann Marie has been missing for a whole week
But I believe that she'll be fine.
But I've never had a cat so I don't know how to react.

I know why it's still falling apart.
And I know why it's still breaking your heart.

Ann Marie was just hiding in the backseat of your car.
No one knows how she got in there.
She's in rough shape but she's been worse.
Remember that first time you let her outside?

I know why we're still falling apart.
And I know why I'm still breaking your heart.
Track Name: Doggie
Clear cut, I got a lot to say to you.
But I never will.
My gut is twisting over like mackerel on dry land.

Slow down, big boy!
Press pause through clenched jaws.
It gets easier!

Smoke thick, hammer hit, I'm playing dumb now.
Shut my poor mouth.
Drink quick and heart sick,
I think she doesn't know that she never left my eyes.

Slow down, big boy!
Press pause through clenched jaws.
It gets easier!
Track Name: Black + Blue
Lately I've been wearing black and blue.
I've been dressing like a bruise for you.
I can't seem to wrap my head around
The way my heart travels south.

Well it's just the way it goes.
I've got my brittle bones wrapped in bows for you.

These days I only seem to dream in black and white.
Areas of grey always dodge my eyes.
Sometimes I wonder if you ever think about me
(just me, just lil ol' me)
Not in a lovely way, but just wondering if I'm okay.

Well it's just the way it goes.
I've got my brittle bones wrapped in bows for you.
Track Name: Everybody Loves You
Open up your bright eyes, see the new world:
Everybody loves you, everybody holds hands.
Wake up in the mirror, get ready.
He was in the backseat, I was in love with you.

Now, I don't want to think anymore.
Christ, I don't want to breathe anymore.
It hurts too much.

He was in the backseat, I was in love with you.
Track Name: Pumpkin Guts
You cut me open and you fill me with fire.
I'll be your jack-o-lantern,
Put me on the porch until I expire.

Yeah, I'll do my job: Scare the neighborhood kids.
They come up with their bags open.
They want the goods then they want to split.

But before you go, I wanna know:
Will you take me back inside?
Will you put me back inside?

Because you cut me open and you fill me with fire.
I'll be your jack-o-lantern,
Put me on the porch until I expire.
Track Name: Good Grief
"Soon, I will be a cat."
