Track Name: Seashell
the moon rises
pushing and pulling the tide
and i cant seem
to make the girl that i want be mine
all you need
to see of me
I'm frightened of permanent company

Oh my darling
i'm not the one
you'll fall for when you run away
so i wish you luck
hell i wish you love
and i hope that you find her someday
Track Name: It Ain't Easy
some things and such.
Track Name: Sirens
i'm not trying to preach
i just wanna believe a kid can dream
and make it reality, i wont be scared off so easily
and the world is upside down
and the sirens roar and race through town
while the criminal starts to lay his head
on the rain soaked pillow in his truck bed

oh no

oh no
Track Name: Steady Mobbin
dun dun done done dahn dahn ding
Track Name: The Wonders Of...
i'm on the run away
from a state that hasn't claimed
the space that i have made
above the world today
and now i gotta say
to the people who hate
to the people who love their life away
so be proud to be who you are
while your playing guitar
and your dreaming of the stars above your head.
yeah this is the wonders of...
the perfect fit for your glove
and you ain't gotta be tough
to love.

so please don't leave
i want you to see what you done to me
have some common courtesy
for a harmony
Track Name: Utopia
i want to be where it's alright.
just to know everything is fine.
Track Name: I'm A Fool
this one's for all my friends
whom i have left
and the women who
i promised all my time
but time isn't what they'd find

to the girl who took the photographs
i'm sorry for the times we had when
we miscommunicated our points.
now your lense is obscured by my half ass thought
that we could be clean again
and i'm sorry for the heroin
the v card
and 2 of my best...

friends i'm a fool
i'm a fool for you
oh my friends i'm a fool
i'm a fool for you
Track Name: You Got It All (Tides)
she really had a grip
when she threw me around
never caught the best of me
when we were hanging out
now she sleeps alone
in her single bed
i begged her to let me come over
i'll sing her a song instead

but she don't like how my voice sounds
she drowns me out
like i drown you out
and if i only knew how to swim
instead of she and him now
it's just him
it's just him

got to talking a lot
with some beautiful broads
none of them ever like you did
isn't that just a bit humorous
why did i bring it up
i'm always stuck in the past
what the fuck is wrong with me
i'm always stuck in the past

and oh my god what of this song?
just sing it along kid
you got it all kid
you got it all.
