about

It's six songs I wrote in high school. You can listen to it again if you like! I had it hidden for a long time, because I used to be kind of embarrassed by it. Nowadays, I kind of like it. For what it is, anyway. I was only 18, after all.

Track Name: Severed Head
your severed head is all alone but ten-to-one he finds his way home. call it what you want but you are hanging off an edge. come on, take a break from it. let's hold our breath. everybody thinks sometimes that no one else around them is alive, and maybe everybody's right. you are wasting air. you are not all right up there but i think maybe there's something worth living for.
Track Name: King of a Cold Burning Thing
there's a fire starting. you don't need to cry. save your breath. we'll blow this out ourselves. is this all we do? sit in dark warm rooms and make believe that you were with me and i was in the fire? i don't need to try to touch your face cause faces feel the same from all these miles away. hey, are you okay? we're almost halfway. i'm pretty sure we're special. i can't be close to you. i'm pretty sure i'm wrong, i'm almost certain of it. i wish i was strong. i've used up my emotions and so have you. the fire in my heart has burned the whole way through. hey, are you okay? you're a little cold and we are way too young for this to get old. i can't be far from you. i'm pretty sure i'm wrong, i'm almost certain of it. i wish i was strong. i wish i was strong. oh yeah, i wish i was strong. oh, i wish i was stronger than that. i wish i was stronger than the thing i wanna save. i wish i was stronger than the thing i wanted to save. can i stay with you in that burning room? can i stay with you in that burning room? can i stay with you in that burning room? can i stay with you in that burning room? we could make believe, make believe that we, that we still had our fire.
Track Name: Heroes of I Don't Give A Shit Town
tuesday, wednesday, thursday, fri i bought a little calendar and every day inside it there's some shit i gotta do. staying up at night i think that what a waste of time it is to run or walk or read or write or stay awake at all. i'll sleep on the grass or sleep on the pavement, amazing, crazy, it makes me make and create and explain my creations with labels creations with labels creations with labels. i'll show you why with a green outline sometime we might be kind and side with my new line and try to rhyme and try to rhyme. keep me up to date on your latest wordplay, every day you're late on a phrase i can take with me. why the hell is music with words so important? are words so important? are words so important? i'm wondering what you're running from, is it the fear in his eyes, the fear in his eyes? i'm wondering what you're leaving for, leaving for, the architect put the door in the wrong place, the door in the wrong place, the door in the wrong place.
Track Name: Paperthin
i thought i'd take you for a spin to test out my new wheels but my brain is a phantom and when it's in the light no one stops to fight except you. is anybody listening? is anybody here? i got paper thin walls, and when you start to talk, my walls, they start to rock cause i know i don't have much to tell you. i'm so unimportant and you're so important to me. i got all this spare time. i write these silly rhymes cause after all you're mine. you're mine, but why? the world is getting smaller. there's room for two. yeah, i'm great, i got just one complaint: when i look at you, i'm not sure what to do cause we are, we are little lost souls come to find a flower smell but that's not what we're going to find. i'll click my seatbelt on. i'll sing a happy song cause after all, you're mine. you're mine. you're mine, but why? i'm paper thin, paper thin, paper thin. i'm paper thin. oh, i'm paper thin, paper thin, paper thin. paper thin. paper thin, paper thin, paper thin.
Track Name: Ice Cream Song
you saw ghosts in the parking lot where skateboarders and other cool kids played and you carried tables upstairs but one meal just can't last all day and i walked by and stared at your mouth which had no chocolate stains on the day the ice cream store closed. no one picked up the chairs in the alley and the counter smelled like sandwich meat and all the way in uptown I felt the lack of energy and no one else was outside on that fateful fateful day, the day the ice cream store closed. if everybody knew about the girl and the doors she lived behind then maybe we could learn to move on. maybe we could eat ice cream once again. I sing this song for you, oh ice cream wizard with your scoops and jokes and creams, you're stirring milkshakes in my dreams for only $3.95 apiece. we won't forget the day the ice cream store closed.
Track Name: Music is Dumb
please don't steal my music. please don't pirate my songs. i really need your money so i can buy five more guitars. they play my songs on the radio so i write em three minutes long. i wrote a whole fucking album but the singles are all you people want and i can play C and G all day for you. i can play the D chord sometimes too. i'll pretend that i didn't spend 7,000 dollars on a speaker that'll make me louder. if you wanna see me fall you'll have to wait a couple years for when the critics piss on my career cause they will. oh yeah! oh baby! no one understands me! i'm unique! i'm special! i write music no one else can write, that no one else has written! i'm inspired by nature and sex with my fans but mostly all the pills that i can cram in my mouth - it really gets my juices flowing! guitar is an instrument that takes a lot of skill to play! (that's the joke.) and i'll pretend that i didn't spend 7,000 dollars on a speaker that'll make me louder. if you wanna see me fall you'll have to wait a couple years for when the critics piss on my career and they pretend that they didn't spend their whole lives decieving, believing that their opinion really means something. if you wanna see em lie you can check their little website and let their numbers tell you what music to like. i can play C and G all day long. with these simple chords i can play pretty much every popular song. music's not supposed to be about making money but it is, and when it is, we like to play E minor and D and end on G!
