Track Name: We Are Committed To Excellence!
we are committed to excellence
we have decided to do our best
but we're not sure what to do with the rest
we are committed to excellence!

in all honesty, i must confess
never in a million years would i have guessed
what i deserve is what i'll get
we are committed to excellence!

i must confess...
we are committed to excellence!
Track Name: Cemetery Hill
tell my ma and pa this is my last hoorah
soon i'll be the only one to ever catch the sun
'cause there's no going back for the blue and black
i will go straight ahead
into the red

when i walk down the tracks i never watch for trains
seems like all i ever feel is on-purpose pain
at the green, green grass on the cemetery hill
if you won't roll down
you know i will

don't make me prove it
make me prove it
make me prove it
you know i will

before i'm laying in the ground down by the hill
if you won't roll down
you know i will
Track Name: Mary Alice And Me
out at sea, i sway and lean
how i long to be back on shore
but it's dancing away from me
oh, what a cruel tease

poor mary alice
face down on the atlas
she's no actress, i can tell
'cause i'm in hell as well

i'm falling down on my knees
the whole ship sees us taking turns turning green
mary alice and me

oh mary, please don't fight
we'll both be fine
we just don't feel right
never mind what i said last night

i'm falling down on my knees
begging, "mary, please believe i didn't mean
to make you cry"

why must poseidon shake me?
and aphrodite forsake me?
this is the worst trip i've ever been on...

i wanna go home!
Track Name: Summer Bummer Pt. 1
madeline,
your leaves are falling fast, my friend
i can see your branches bend as you sway in the wind
you let any young punk carve his name in your trunk...
Track Name: Summer Bummer Pt. 2
you're in my head
you're why my head is spinnin'
i'm spinnin' and trippin' and falling down
now i'm bruised and toothless
oh, my body is useless!
how could you do this?
oh, madeline...

you're my forever summer bummer
i can't take another summer
Track Name: Baby Tokyo
nobody was there when we got married just for fun
i asked you in a parking lot, i don't recall which one
but i remember you said "yes" in a bathroom stall
your mama's tears are gone for good
she must've cried them all

when our baby girl is born we'll name her Tokyo
after one of many places we will never go
when she's older we will tell her
what we were never told
there ain't a place in this whole world that she can't go

if it gets too hard for us to have and to hold
maybe she'll save us?
Tokyo
Track Name: Bearded + Weirded
if you're bearded and weirded
let me sing for you
i know what you're going through
don't do anything i wouldn't do

i've been making demands
all my plans have fallen through
and i had time on my hands
my broken fingers healed too soon
now i've got work to do
but i don't want to

if you're bearded and weirded
let me sing for you
i know what you're going through
don't do anything i wouldn't do
don't think, don't touch, don't move
just wait it out, that's all you can do
Track Name: Twirl My Curls
if you loved me as much as i twirl my curls
i'd be the happiest guy in the world
don't you know you're my favorite girl?
and i think of you when i twirl my curls
when i twirl my curls
i think of you when i twirl my curls

if you never talk to me again
i'll never leave my bed
i'll twirl my curls all day instead
'til there ain't a hair left on my head
left on my head
'til there ain't a hair left on my head
Track Name: Everyone Wins
your lazy laugh carries on the wind
in every movie i've ever seen you in
the planets align and the universe grins
in every movie i've ever seen you in

when the snow melts and the flooding begins
we'll head for the hills 'cause you know i can't swim
just like in every movie you're in
ain't no disaster gonna do us in

there ain't no disaster
Track Name: A Dozen Dirty Dishes
a dozen dirty dishes in the sink
how i wish we never missed a beat

i see you standing on the balcony, waiting
recklessly feeling and fading

we're losing traction and spilling wine
over-reacting all the time
if crashing cars should smash me up
and make my body leak its blood
i'll let the soil soak it up

i see you standing on the balcony, waiting
i know that one day i'll be perched on the railing
Track Name: All Your Answers Will Be Questioned
it's okay if you die
it's not the end of the world, just the end of your life
and if it happens tonight
well, let this be our last goodbye
so before you're locked in a casket
if you've got a question, go ahead and ask it
and i promise not to tell you a lie
but i'll probably say something sarcastic

i'm so sick of re-using faces
and hearing cliche phrases
i just wanna hear a sad sound
and everyday a new one is found
i hear a white noise through my window
it hums and hisses when the wind blows
it shakes my parts apart
it stops and starts my beaten heart

i've traveled a long, long distance
but somewhere between i missed it
i can't even figure out what's missing
and why try when i'm not done wishing?
i wish no one was paying attention
to the silly things that i mention
'cause even if you're well-intentioned
all your answers will be questioned
