Track Name: Consider a Golden Ship
consider a golden ship
you might think that's pretty valuable
but I will tell you what is valuable

It's a ship made of friends
who will help you when you're down
with your head spinning around
and will make you so damn
proud to know me
and that you knew me now

and I'll tell you about it twice
how you tried to change my life
when you wanted to be my wife but you couldn't
because you were so damn out
with the crowd
who will shout
and will flout you

it might be the wrong thing to say
I wish that everything would just leave a way
then I could make up some excuse
and I would tell you about it
you'll never doubt me now

and you'll tell me about it twice
how you tried to change my life
when I wanted to be your wife but I couldn't
because I was someone else
with the crowd
who will never make me be allowed
I'll tell you what i figured out

consider a golden ship
you might think that's pretty valuable
but I will tell you what is valuable
Track Name: What Do You Know
what do you know I've gone and messed you up
you're the one who was stuck with a half filled cup
and I'm sorry for what I did to you
I guess I always knew

I still see your face around it's tough
I try to live with it but I've had enough
I should have one but now I'm having four
and I want one more
I'm lying right here on the kitchen floor
thinking of you

what do you know I've figured it all out
you're the bastard who filled my ex with doubt
and probably damaged her before we met
and now the cigarettes
have become a way to deal with it
even though she knows that she should quit
she should have one but now she's having four
and she wants one more
she used to be rich but now she's poor

I wish this wasn't a reality
'cause now you're sick of me
and I wish you were around

I think about what happened in the past
these things go by so fast
and now I'm feeling down

in my fondest memory
you'd be right next to me
and we'd walk around the park

and now I'm writing songs for you
like blink-182
and I'm sitting in the dark

always alone
now that I'm alone
I sit
I think
I wonder what it could be
to me
I'll see
just gotta wait another day
for these thoughts to go away
I wanna call you up and say

I wish this wasn't a reality
'cause now you're sick of me
and I wish you were around

I think about what happened in the past
these things go by so fast
and now I'm feeling down

in my fondest memory
you'd be right next to me
and we'd walk around the park

and now I'm writing songs for you
like blink-182
and I'm sitting in the dark

what do you know I'll go and ring you up
we'll laugh about all the stupid stuff I did
when everything was through
I wasn't there for you
is what it is nothing I can do

but look you up
ring you up
mess you up
Track Name: Tangerine
I remember when I met you
'cause we hung out all night
'til the morning dew
I said if you wanna be with me
meet me by mango tree

we would lie and chill on grass
just looking at all the good times pass
if I stare into your eyes
I would hear the sunset rise

forget every word that is said
I understand love don't pay the rent
I heard what you said
I just don't know what you mean

you're the one that makes me scream
that's why you're my tangerine

If you want to sleep with me
let's take ecstasy in the cemetery
but in spite of all the pills we take
you'll be with me when I wake

forget every word that is said
I understand love don't pay the rent
I heard what you said
I just don't know what you mean

you're the one that makes me scream
that's why you're my tangerine

I know love won't pay the rent
'cause by the end of the night
it seems our love is spent

I heard what you said
I just don't know what you mean

you're the one that makes me scream
that's why you're my tangerine
Track Name: Unconsciously
I wanted a change but i didn't know how
so I exuded negativity
it was my subconscious' way of getting it's way
I didn't realize until too late

I brought them down as i spazzed out
so they kicked me out of the band
it was for the best but i still felt bad
I learned from it in the end

but today
it's okay
it's allright
tonight

got hired by a band 'cause they dug my sound
but they didn't dig my ideas
they were kind of like Dave Matthews Band
I wanted to be like Nine Inch Nails

one night I watched Russell Brand interview
the Westboro Baptist Church
at some point during the interview
I decided to quit the band

but tonight
it's allright
it's okay
today

about three months is my shelf life
when I play in someone else's band
things get out of hand
it's more than I can stand

if I don't do something for myself
I can't do anything for anyone else
things tend to go to hell
if you're unhappy with yourself

might be just as well
that it's not possible to sell
yourself on second best
who you even trying to impress

it's not for everyone
if you're not having any fun
take it as it goes
just don't take off all your clothes
Track Name: Not Trying to Hurt You
understand she's not trying to hurt you
understand she's not trying to cause you pain
understand she's not trying to hurt you
if she ever fell she meant to pick myself up first

understand she's not trying to hurt you
understand she's not trying to cause you pain
understand she's not trying to hurt you
if she ever fell she meant to pick herself up first

but it's not so black and white it's complicated
is it laugh you want or life ask me again
time apart has made me appreciate it
now I only want to be a better man

understand she's not trying to hurt you
understand she's not trying to cause you pain
understand she's not going to desert you
if I ever fell I meant to pick myself up first
Track Name: Face
I saw you today yeah
you know I saw your face
I saw you today yeah
and it was at a place
I saw you today yeah
you were to one I loved
I saw you today yeah
felt like it was from above

I saw your face
yeah
I saw your face
yeah

I saw you today yeah
you were walking down the street
I saw you today yeah
you had shoes on your feet
I saw you today yeah
you were the one i loved
I saw you today yeah
felt like it was from above

I saw your face
yeah
I saw your face
yeah
I saw your face
yeah
I saw your face
it reminded me of you

but is that okay

I saw your face
yeah
I saw your face
yeah
I saw your face
yeah
I saw your face
it reminded me of you
Track Name: Pure Luck
I can't be this person
the one you want me to be
I just feel worse now
I don't know why you can't see

let me explain it
I won't ever say I'm sorry
it's just the way
the way these things they happen for me

if you go
and love someone who doesn't have soul
I don't care if you can't feel
you'll never be the one I need
nothing hurts and no one's real

I'm running out of time
I don't think i can make it
it's too much caffeine now
but not enough to fake it

I could never be
the same as all the others
I don't know why
someone like you would even bother

if you go
and love someone who doesn't have a soul
I don't care if you can't feel
you'll never be the one I need
nothing hurts and no one's real

nothing hurts and no one's real

when I came here
I thought that I was older
but I grew younger as the winter months grew colder
let me explain it
I won't ever say i'm sorry
it's just the way
the way these things they happen for me

if you go
and love someone who doesn't have a soul
I don't care if you can't feel
you'll never be the one I need
nothing hurts and no one's real

nothing hurts and no one's real
Track Name: Credit Cards and Broken Hearts
night falls and you're feeling low
doesn't anybody want to know
how did we end up like this

don't listen to what the neighbors say
no it doesn't matter anyway
how did we end up like this

so lost in the stars
waiting for the girl and the perfect car
reading all the magazines
the boys the girls
shades are bright but you've got no future

spend your life in the club
waiting for the man with the perfect drug
they're cutting all the credit cards
and broken hearts in four

last call and you're feeling rough
gonna tell them that you've had enough
with all you've got to say with your fist

swing once and you're on your head
look now you've made your bed
but i can't see the comfort in this

girls messing with your head
always going home with your friends instead
using all the same old lines
the wink the smile
lights are on but you've got no ride home

no cash for the cab
always getting home on the gift of gab

they're cutting all the credit cards
and broken hearts in four

they're cutting all the credit cards
and broken hearts
they're cutting all the credit cards
and broken hearts
they're cutting all the credit cards
and broken hearts
they're cutting all the credit cards
and broken hearts
they're cutting all the credit cards
credit cards
and broken hearts
broken hearts
credit cards
credit cards
