Track Name: Parking Lots
We're searching for something thats already found us
Trying to hold back our voice becoming friends with our thoughts

It makes me angry how nobody cares how I'm feeling
Always missing the point of the story I'm telling

I have nothing to say
but I won't always be around
You better take your chance right now
These empty parking lots oh they melt my thoughts
Waiting for you to find your spot

Every moment is the moment we've been waiting for
Missing whats been inside us coming back for some more

Left me anxious
Shoulders so tense
Kept me on edge

Your spot is right next to mine
In the parking lot where I've been suffering all night
Track Name: Alma Mater
There's way more pleasure in a pathless forest than one paved in stone
I think its crazy how we never have a choice of our own
Our life's predestined by our culture from the day we are born
I took the path less traveled because I quit

I never had a chance
I'm way too dumb for it
I slacked off so much I was the worst student
I had something better
For my time that mattered
I said I'm done with this and I'm over it

It got me feeling that I
don't really matter and I
will never be going anywhere
But I don't wanna live life
by paying bills and dying
with a profession where I don't care
I wasn't made to fit
Cause I was made to quit
I wasn't made for this

Getting neglected cause I took the chance to follow my dreams
Seen as a rebel cause I failed to follow through with routine
Don't mean no disrespect
Don't wanna die with debt
Just trying to follow through with what my mind says

I was made to live
Track Name: Lotus
Restless never making sense anymore
I've caught up from where my body suffered before
Gone and never coming back to this place
I took off and I'll make sure that you have me erased
You better have me erased
Without a fucking trace
And then you'll be okay

Endless words of what we already know
Listen maybe you'll learn something and grow
I've learned to be at peace with myself
Rather than be in harmony with somebody else
I don't need anyone else
Forget everyone else

Can I live like a lotus living in the mud
Existing all on my own with help from no one at all
Rising above the water overcoming the pond
Struggling to unfold my petals one by one
Can I strive like a lotus striving in the mud
Defeating all of my fears so that my heart can bloom
Track Name: Picture of My Placenta
Well I just heard the news today
It seems my life is going to change
I close my eyes, begin to pray
Then tears of joy stream down my face

With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open

Well I don't know if I'm ready
To be the man I have to be
I'll take a breath, I'll take her by my side
We stand in awe, we've created life

With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything

With arms wide open
With arms wide open
I'll show you everything ...oh yeah
With arms wide open..wide open

If I had just one wish
Only one demand
I hope he's not like me
I hope he understands
That he can take this life
And hold it by the hand
And he can greet the world
With arms wide open...

With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open

I'll show you everything..oh yeah
With arms wide open....wide open
Track Name: Kate Bush
It's hard for me
to give up one what I need
It keeps me alive
When I can't pass by leaving me nothing worth it behind

There's nothing I'd rather have instead
Smoking on the loud at almost every night
Made me forget all about the things on my mind
Why'd I decided to us up my time
exploring my own mind?
When I could try to focus on creating something worthwhile

My eyes have turned red
I've got cottonmouth that won't make me regret
Forgot about the shit that's been on my mind

Can't leave it
It's in my bones
It makes me mad
There's nothing I'd rather have
I can't resist
Track Name: Bird Up!
I've never been so happy to know
That my friends and I will leave from home

Backseat kicking it with JD
We hold it down while the road is moving under our feet
Driving everyday in the van
Never gets old cause the four of us are best friends
Always see just the craziest things
Like when that girl busted her head on the edge of the street
I'll never forget any of these
Memories yeah they'll always be so special to me

I miss it everyday
Out on the open highway
I never want it to end
I know we'll do it again

Telling stories about the things that went down
Never felt so at home at someone elses house
We're always up late at night
Just wanna have a good time
Waking up in the morning with bags under our eyes

Upfront Bray posted at shotgun
bumpin the tunes that love to sing out loud just for fun
B-man guiding us in the van
bossin around cause he thinks hes got some kind of plan
Always see just the most insane things
Like when that nurse bought some gin off a gangster on the street
Forever remembering everything
that we did so I have more time to cherish it

I will always remember
I wanna live like this forever
And never wanna think about home
Always having places to go
Track Name: Conform
Maybe our odyssey is not about becoming anything at all
Maybe its about not conforming to everything that isnt you
so be the real you

When did you become a mime?
Living your life as a lie
Killing the soul of yourself
Need to stop copying everyone else

Imitate everything
that everyone has already one
A knock off
Having no personality

Shed the skin that you'll never have to wear again
Unlocking the potential you have as a person
Discovering new things that you never had the chance to know
And when you find your colors
You let them show

Standing out from everyone else
Unbecoming everything else around me
Track Name: Petey Cruiser
Waiting for my film to process
It's just like waiting for food to digest
And if you ever have a problem biding
You know you always can just come to me for anything
It always lingers on me when I'm all alone
How you split my spirit in four ways
But that's beside the point that I'm trying to convey to you
However long you take I'll always wait for you

Hang tight

I'll always stay right here
Sat waiting in my chair
Just hoping for you to answer
These questions that I'm always wondering about you
and never asked

I've been waiting such a long time
For this moment to just swing by
I rely too much on fate
and all the great that it brings to me
but now I need to do something
cause I've been lazy

I spend my days just wondering
and waiting for something special
to happen to me
but I'm just useless
unproductive and not worth
being alive
for anyone at any time at all

Would you believe that I've been waiting for a year
Always pacing around my room
Avoiding what I should do
Avoiding what I could do
Track Name: Puppy Love
Crossing my mind
Patience I can't find

I'm so stupid
cause I don't know what to talk about
I'm still a little boy
whose scared to be in front of a crowd
Day by day
I wonder when I will be mature
enough for the person
that I do everything I do for

I saw you the other day
My feelings couldn't hold their weight
because how long its been

Using all of my strength
just to get my shit together
and hold back my feelings
Using all my courage
just to make sure that you
never find out how much I care

You're clueless
That's my guess
But I will never know for sure
I've tried to just move on
But I think I've become obsessed
If loving you is wrong
I don't think I want to be right
I'll never forget how happy I felt
Your essence alluring
Makes me comfortable
I get nervous around you
Cause I'm not worthy of
Your presence in my life
and I'm no good for you
I spend all my time being fixed on you

I never know what to say
My words always embarrass me
It's hard to give up what I want

Using all of my strength
just to get my shit together
and hold back my feelings
Using all my courage
Just to make sure that you know
I always want you happy

Even if I have to leave this world and die
for you
