Track Name: Better Friends
nora said get out of bed and start your day

but I’m too lazy too go out and too fucking bored to stay

getting up and out this room is getting harder to do

especially if going out means being stuck and bored with you

and now I know

when I’m alone

I’ve got no one to blame

the fault’s my own

I know in the end, I should have been a better friend

I can’t believe the best part of me

is dying alone in a room that I never leave

getting away seems harder each day

when I know that I could leave or stay
Track Name: I Don't Need You To Watch My Dog
I don’t need you to watch my dog

he’s not a burden

and some time away from the city

really wouldn’t hurt him

In a 97 hatchback

80 miles there and back

I think I’m making progress
Track Name: Core Reduction
I can’t control

the feeling that I’ve felt this way before

I’ve got to know

how I came to be so mad so pissed to broke

all of the time I spend denying things that I should claim as my own

it overloads

I’ve been so low

to everyone who’s tried to let me know

I’ve lost control

and I don’t think that I will find it anymore
Track Name: Kitchen Spanish
when you hop a plane from new york to oaxaca

with all the shit packed in the luggage we bought you

and I buy a mountain of cat food for sid

I hope you remember a couple of things

so you’re scared

me too

that’s why I hablo espanol with you

and I know that it’s broken

and it sounds like a stretch

but really all I need to do is connect

we’re better off without the rest.
Track Name: Katie
Katie, are you afraid of getting older?

I know you’re excited to meet your sister’s kid.

Don’t worry about what to do

while you’re at home,

while you’re waiting,

while you’re stuck in town.

We’re all held hostage

by decades of supply-side economics,

or so I’ve heard.

The debt incurred rules my life, rules the world.

Maybe it’ll be better when we’re older.

Relearn the bad habits the world will soon forgive.

The things that break us down,

the consequence of incompetence.

We’re all held hostage

by decades of supply-side economics,

or so I’ve heard.

The debt incurred rules my life, rules the world.
Track Name: Administration 2010
I’ve been thinking a lot these days

it’s been four long years since you’ve cried your tears

and now I’m old enough to say

I was wrong, and this song

has been overdue for far to long

if you’re listening, I could tell you what has changed

but so much has stayed the same, I’m just trying to stay sane

I know just what my place should be

I am five foot ten with an empty head

I may be dumb but I can clearly see

that although this may sting

it’s as temporary as the wind

and like death and taxes

I know I can count on change

but so much has stayed the same, i’m just trying to stay sane

we just need a little change, to get us through our days

on your plane ride back from Scotland

try to remember what you’ve forgotten

add that new job to the list

10 months later, you’ve been gone but never missed
