Track Name: Summer of '93
I want to move out to the west coast
So far away from all of our ghosts
I want to make love in the desert
And feel our bodies move in concert

Cause I've been wasting so much of my life
This plane is boarding, here's your warning sign

They say the grass is never greener
If nothing else at least it's cleaner
We'll start a band just like that summer
You'll play the bass, I'll be the drummer

Cause I've been wasting so much of our life
This baby's bored and here's your warning sign
So let's stop talking, let's start making plans
They'll paint a sign to greet us when we land

We won't have jobs but that won't matter
We'll find a way if we're together
I'll wear my boots, we'll go out drinking
Make bad decisions without thinking

Cause I've been wasting so much of my life
This plane is boarding, here's your warning sign
It's time

Hey na na na na na na na na!
Track Name: Black/Light
It's a hot mess on a cold day
You don't have the balls to leave
But you sure as shit can't stay

Like a long line for a slow train
If it gets you where you're going then I guess
It's best not to complain

Don't complain
It won't change
Don't complain
It's not sane

It's a black light on a late night
If it keeps you on the dance floor then I guess
That everything's alright

It's alright
Please don't fight
It's alright
Hold her tight, tonight
Track Name: It Gets Louder
I wrote a letter to my friend, but I never sent it
Seems I'm out of stamps again, she'd probably never read it
Anyway
I wrote a song about myself, but I never sing it
Seems I never find my voice, not even when I need it
Anyway

Sometimes, it's easier to be quiet
But sometimes, it gets louder, and I like it

Everyday I fall apart, over something stupid
You see this sleeve, it holds my heart, just like an arrow's cupid
Can't you see?
That everyday I feel afraid, but for no good reason
It's like I'm always on a stage, or being tried for treason
Don't you know?

Sometimes, it's easier to be quiet
But sometimes, it gets louder, and I like it
I really like it

And I remember sounds, much more than faces
But somehow, I'm back around in your good graces

Sometimes, it's easier to be quiet
But sometimes, it gets louder, and I like it
Oh yeah!
Track Name: If I Had a Boat
If I had a dime
For every time
That you broke my heart
I'd buy a theme park
I'd make lots of noise
Invite lots of boys
We'd stay through the night
It would be such a sight

I'd finally be free
Of all the chains around me
Like I should've been, so long ago

If I had a boat
I'd sail the blue seas
Do whatever I please
I'd swim all day long
I'd write lots of songs
Send postcards back home
I'm much better alone

I'd find that peace of mind
I'd settle down, feel fine
Like I should've done, so long ago

I'd finally be free
Of all the chains around me
