Track Name: Figure Out
Love the town love the town that I grew up in
But I never ever want to live there again
And I hate the town hate the town that I'm in now
But I'll stay here stay here until the whole city drowns

I gotta figure out figure out figure out
Figure out figure out figure out
What I'm doing with my life
What I'm doing with my life

Loved a boy loved a boy loved a boy a lot
And my friends said you should be happy with what you got
Until one day one day it all just came to an end
When I found out found out he was f@%kin' all my friends

He had to figure out figure out figure out
Figure out figure out figure out
What he's doing with his life
What he's doing with his life

Never do never do what I wanna do
And I'm being being exactly who I hate
And I never cry never smile never scream no more
Because it turns out that life is just one big old bore

I gotta figure out figure out figure out
Figure out figure out figure out
What I'm doing with my life
What I'm doing with my life

I gotta figure out figure out figure out
Figure out figure out figure out
What I'm doing with my life
What I'm doing with my life
Track Name: Teeth
Show me your teeth
I need to believe
That you have as much bite and grit and heart and guts
As me

Show me a sign
That you have changed this time
That you have enough guts and heart and strength to come back
To me

Come back to me
Come back to me

Show me your skin
Let me know how hard it is to get in
That you know who to fight who to hate who to love and
Trust in

Show me your guts
Don't promise that you are tough
I wanna know you can fight talk back stand up when you've had
Enough

And come back to me
Come back to me

Come back to me
Come back to me

Show me your teeth
Open wide don't shut me out
Show me your teeth
Open wide don't shut me out
Show me your teeth
Open wide don't shut me out
Show me your teeth
Open wide don't shut me out
Track Name: Crazy
Keep your crazy to yourself
Or it will spread like a disease
From you to me

Put your problems on a shelf
And I will treat them like a book
I'll never read

Well you say you've turned a page
And you feel better now
You've had time to talk things out
And you're much stronger now
But I don't believe you

So cover your mouth when you talk
Or the disease you spread
Will cover up everything

Stand a little further from me please
Or is it your goal in life to bring me
To my knees?

Well you say you've turned a page
And you feel better now
You've had time to talk things out
And you're much stronger now
But I don't believe you

So keep me out of your bell jar
You know acting like that won't get
You very far

Cuz I keep my crazy to myself
Pity parties and shared feelings
Don't do anything for me

Well you say you've turned a page
And you feel better now
You've had time to talk things out
And you're much stronger now
But I don't believe you
No I don't believe you.
Track Name: Promise Land
Take my hand
I won’t take you to the Promise Land
But I can show you a good time
So take my hand

Understand
I don’t need you to be my man
I just want you to understand
Who I am

Please don’t get me wrong
This feeling is so strong
No need to ask why
When it’s feeling right
I get carried away
Is that ok?
Ok?
Okay.

Take my hand
I don’t need the Promise Land
We don’t need to go very far
From where we are

I understand
I don’t need you to be all mine
But we can have a good time
So take my hand

Please don’t get me wrong
This feeling is so strong
No need to ask why
When it’s feeling right
I get carried away
Is that ok?
Ok?
Okay.

Take my hand
I won’t take you to the Promise Land
But I can show you a good time
So take my hand
Take my hand
I won’t take you to the Promise Land
But I can show you a good time
So take my hand
So take my hand
So take my hand
So take my hand
Track Name: Cruel
I could be cruel
To you
I could ask you how you're doing
And ignore you
I could say love
And really mean like
Hate every day
And stay up all night

I could be cruel
I could be you

I could make you
Hate me too
I could tell you that I love you
And ignore you
I could measure my life
In heartache and shane
Stay up all night
High on the pain

I could be cruel
I could be you

I could be cruel
I could be you

I could be cruel
To you
I could tell you that I need you
And ignore you
I could say like
And really mean hate
Stay up all night
And hate every day

I could be cruel
I could be you

I could be cruel
I could be you.
Track Name: Push, Push, Push
Like a dog's death march
Out into the woods
I do what I want
And not what I should
Lonely gets you nothing
But quiet and peace
I don't mean no harm
But that sounds good to me

So I push, push, push
You away, hey hey
Yeah I push, push, push
You awayyyy

Well I like you better
When you're walking away
You sound better
When you've got nothing to say
It feels much better
When you're waiting by the phone
And it tastes better
When I drink alone

This dog needs space
To lick her wounds
And your well-meaning
It just fills up the room
With kind thoughts and pity
And little white lies
And other sweet gestures
That I've grown to despise

So I push, push, push
You away, hey hey
Yeah I push, push, push
You awayyyy

Well I like you better
When you're walking away
You sound better
When you've got nothing to say
It feels much better
When you're waiting by the phone
And it tastes better
When I drink alone

So I push, push, push
You away, hey hey
Yeah I push, push, push
You awayyyy

Well I like you better
When you're walking away
You sound better
When you've got nothing to say
It feels much better
When you're waiting by the phone
And it tastes better
When I drink alone
Track Name: Animal
They keep us trapped
in little rooms
Earning them more money
Than they’d ever pay you
They’ll bleed you until they
Get their full
Like a caged animal

Eat at the same time
Every day
Put on your suit
Everytime the same way
They like it when you
have nothing to say
Like a trained animal

Animal
Animal

And when you finally
get out
You can’t wrap your mind
Around what life’s all about
So just sit there on your couch
Like a tame animal

Animal
Animal

But you can’t keep
The wild at bay
And one day you’ll
Get the urge to run and play
You’ll meet a nice boy or girl
And make like animals

Animal
Animal
Track Name: Stuck Around
I met you on a bender
Some time in late September
You were much shorter
Than I remembered

When my gritty replies
Met your pretty blue eyes
You were much kinder
Than other guys

I’m not sure why you stayed
When I couldn’t behave

But I’m glad you stuck around

You try to be patient
While I try to just make it
Another day without
Screwing it up

You find it endearing
But I’m constantly fearing
You’ll find a girl
Less crazy than me

I’m not sure why you stayed
When I couldn’t behave

But I’m glad you stuck around

We got a house together
A couple cats together
Everything seems so
Unreal

Like how could this boy
Not get annoyed
With my
Cocky insecurity

I’m not sure why you stay
And that I’m now trying to behave
I’m glad you stuck around.
