about

This album comes free with a pdf of a zine that has everything there is to know about the album on it, except for the stuff only I know... I suggest downloading the zine and having a look, it has shoutouts and explanations of a little bit of the songs in there.

Track Name: Piss Ass Fuck World
Fuck the world
in the eye
choke on piss
till you die
Track Name: You Are Very, Very Important!
you change people just by existing
the person you make yourself to be rubs off on people
trust me
if you love breakfast your best friend will make you french toast
and eat it with you too.
believe me it's true
and I know you feel unheard I know you do
but everything you say has meaning
And you are listened to
so don't you dare give up yet
Cause I've fallin in love with everyone I've met
So if you're ever feeling worthless
just know, to me you've got purpose
You make me pretty happy
when I think of all the things you've said
And you make others happy too
just with your existence
Cause you change people just by existing
the person you make yourself out to be rubs off on people
trust me
if you love breakfast your best friend will make you french toast
and eat it with you too.
believe me it's true
and I know you feel unheard I know you do
but everything you say has meaning
And you are listened to
So if someone ever says I love you
and you doubt it to be the truth
well that's okay but one day
you'll be frustrated when you're on the other end
and you'll probably want to explode
and I really that hope you do
pour your heart out to that person until they say I love you too
Track Name: Kill Your Parents.
I wanna burn down the system
I wanna burn it to the ground
Don't wanna build a new one in it's place
I just wanna leave it there
for years and years
I wanna spit in it's smoldering face
I wanna liberate the masses
from all of the facists
That plague our lives day to day
Don't care what you wanna do
Don't care what you got to say
I want to live my life my way
Please fuck off
Don't wanna fuck on
Fuck off dad and fuck off the moms
of this world
let the glass bottles be hurled
to their stupid fucking heads, let them be dead
that might seem harsh
That might seem off putting
But they say that we won't watch where we're looking
So they need a look
With some elses eye
So they can see how many people fucking die
From their elected leaders
who refuse to feed us
GOD DAMN IT WHY WONT THEY FEED US
we just want some food dude
Track Name: Dance or Finance?
Sittin alone on the weekend again
Just drinkin and thinkin oh when will this end
Probably within the week
well I would've left my house by now
But I'm too afraid that I will be alone
So I'll steal booze or find someone to get me stoned
if I had a penny for every single time that I wanted to hop a freight car
I'd have enough for a dollar pbr
A DOLLAR PBR
I hope I get kicked out of my parents house
Cause If I don't then I don't know how
I'LL FIND A WAY OUT OF THIS PLACE
I've never been more afraid
What will happen to me
next is a mystery
Cause if I don't decide something for myself
I'll end up disappointing someone else
I don't want my future to be as blurry as impressionism
But that's what happens when you fuck with nihilism
SO ILL CASH IN MY SAVINGS BONDS
AND SPEND IT ALL ON
ONE THOUSAND LOTTERY TICKETS
AND HOPE THAT I WIN IT
cause that's all hope really is It's a chance
It'll be dance or finance

Track Name: Love Song For A Stranger
You asked me where building NE is
You said I think it means northeast
I chuckled and I said
North campus building E
I hope you find where it is
Because I really do care
And by the way you're pretty cute
and I really like your hair
I know this is the first time I've talked to you
but it might not be the last
I hope I see you again
I hope one day we'll be in the same class
I hope you find out where NE is
Cause the directions I gave you were pretty shitty
Remember it's the glass exterior building
North Campus building E
Track Name: Love Song For Beer
as this beer touches my tongue
I can't help but forget about all my problems
because Iiiiiiii
can't think of
of a better time
than the times I've spent
shitface drunk
with strangers and friends
and loooooooved ones
Track Name: Who Needs That CR*P?!?!?
who needs drums
when you got spoons
I don't got a drum set
how about you

Who needs snare
when you got a ganza
I don't wanna play one
I don't even want ta
ah AH

Who need guitar
I got uke
This stupid sound
Makes me puke

Have you got a table?
Just bang with hands
I know that you're able
anyone can!
((unless you dont have hands))

Who needs a voice
When you can just scream
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Track Name: Off The Charts...
Someone please
Tell me how to get back up
I’m losing touch
Poppin pills stuck in a rut
I'm losing touch


On another plane…
I feel insane
I've lost my brain
Please help me up x3


Cause this
Graph of time to happiness
It tends to slip and slide
But now I feel as though I'm falling off
On a different line
Is this the fucking deep end
Or just an ocean trench
Chugging down the booze
And soon my life is spent


My life's destroyed
Smashed to smithereens
oh fuck oh boi
This is my last plea
Please set me free x2

Every day I wake up
even further down the line
so as I pour another cup
I hope this time I die
this time I'll die x2

Cause this
Graph of time to happiness
It tends to slip and slide
But now I feel as though I'm falling off
On a different line
Is this the fucking deep end
Or just an ocean trench
Chugging down the booze
And soon my life is spent

Give me the gift
of sincerity
or tell me where my life is going to be
a year from now
or help me out
ev en if you are dra ging my corpse
in to a coff in
with full force

Cause this
Graph of time to happiness
It tends to slip and slide
But now I feel as though I'm falling off
On a different line
Is this the fucking deep end
Or just an ocean trench
Chugging down the booze
And soon my life is spent

gotta start drawing upwards or I'll fall off the line
gotta quit swallowing pills gotta let my star shine
I gotta get a better job I gotta lay off the wine
hopefully soon I'll have enough hope to
add some more numbers on my timeline
Track Name: The Last "Song" On The "Album"
The first songs about skullfucking the planet
And drowning yourself in bodily excrement
But what if you are in your prime
Well that's a song for another time

Next songs about how you're important
And about how it's not yet time to quit
But what if you don't talk to anyone
Some other day that song is sung

Next songs about killing fascists
But what if you are a pacifist
Well then this song aint for you
I'll have to write another song or two

Next one's about my future
But what if you just can't relate it to yourself
thought you already knew but to be sure
I wrote that song for myself

Next songs about grabbing hold of a steering wheel
Moving my life forward like an automobile
But what if you're in the back seat
Well come up here and sit with me

The next song is about a stranger
Loving them although I had not met her
But what if she hears it and thinks I'm a creep
I'll write another song in my sleep

The next song is about beer
and all the good times I've had this year
but what if I'm an alcoholic
well fuck I'll write a song about it

The next song is about music
and how I don't need all that equipment
but what if it just don't sound right
We'll turn that frustration into a fight

Next songs about losing my mind
And my fear that I'll soon die
But what if I really do die
I will have lost my ability to write

Last song is this one
You're probably wondering what the point was
Well I think that every song is for someone
But not every song is for everyone
so take a moment and close your eyes
unless you're on a drive
well if you are in that case
please drive safe
You will make it to that place.
And then you can rest and be safe.
