Playing Dumb 03:33
We're always showing when we're growing A lot about us gets fried up under the sun And your the only one who wants to talk about it A lot of future left to hold But most among us would rather sit and laugh about all the other reasons you get caught up in it Playing dumb it's a game of taboo how we're speaking Staying young feels more like bad dream than it used to On the run from anything that holds me to the ground All we've got to hope for is the kids are still alright Another generation wasting All their time and allocation and their funds Holding onto something that they read before We’re all just looking for the answers But acting like we were born knowing all along Hold on for the regret yet to set in store Playing dumb it's a game of taboo how we're speaking Staying young feels more like bad dream than it used to On the run from anything that holds me to the ground All we've got to hope for is the kids are still alright

Honest to God Healthy in every way Picking collections, hiding behind the bar. Honest to God Healthy and doing fine In-school detention Kids aren’t going far. So don’t act like you want it When you know you don’t need it Don’t act like you want it You know you don’t need it. Honest to God Perfectly doing fine Subpar applications Coded in Chinese lines Honest to God Perfectly doing alright Becoming complexions Highly in social might So don't act like you want it You know you don't need it Don't act like you want it You know you don't need it /// And I don't even wanna come like Like I don't know my shit Disposable credit Written grocery notes And I don't even wanna sound like Like I'm out of place "I won't give you any credit When you live like this" Beautiful Copper stones Laid upon Paper Gods And I don't even wanna seem like Like I'm out of reach Academic understanding On a hopeful silk And how teachers seem to hate it And how parents validate it Detach my instincts On a paper trail Beautiful Copper stones Laid upon Paper God's Make me seem Out of sync Spender man Coming along With the reals And yens And gongs ‘cause love is a man who won't come home

The sound of a man Coming of age Caressing the drink He thinks is not fruitless Coming back home From punching that clock Thinking aloud "Man, I fucking hate Tuesdays" Talk of the town Talk of the town Talk of the town And the talk is so useless Eyes on a clout Beshes to gowns Take it away From the ones who deserve it Feeling around Stretching unwound Sits on the couch And he yells about the weather man Talk of the town Talk of the town Talk of the town And the talk is so useless I feel these waves Coming deep within my stove With no direction home And when my plate Falls just beneath my bros' The money's good, I know Compelling design Of southwestern skies Back from the border And into front labor Preaching the stash Of cumin and salt Checking the status ‘Cause he pay no rent Talk of the town Talk of the town Talk of the town And the talk is so useless I feel these waves Coming deep within my stove With no direction home And when my plate Falls just beneath my bros' The money's good, I know Talk of the town and the talk is so useless

I was nothing Looking through your Broken windows To see what’s out there Not always nice to see crystal clear When what your seeing ain’t worth the feeling But you just know you don’t wanna be out there by yourself I could see it from your room Nighttime creatures on the move Out there tryna break the blues We’ve all got something to prove Hardly something you could dream of When you were younger and wanted to be Part of the party it’s all right here This feels like shit to me but I’ll stay right here You just know when you wanna be out there like the rest I could see it from your room Nighttime creatures on the move Out there tryna break the blues We’ve all got something to prove I could see it from your room Nighttime creatures on the move Out there tryna break the blues We’ve all got something to prove

Jane Ryan 04:55
(With apologies to Jeff Tweedy) I left my shoes Wayward, untied, and neat Became the falsehood idol Dyed within Into the search for nothing bought My lazy eyes glued to the stove Manilla lies and I deceive her Bring from the ash a wide receiver And how that diamond turns to coal I'll be defined with what I owe So please Don't Take That That’s My shoe Rack Demanding needs that in silks From every aspect, nice and painted neat Into the search for nothing bought My crazy eyes glued to the stove And if my children dare to dare me I'll ransom out great adversaries And I'll be safe in safer homes With all the gold my loved one grows So please Don't Take That That’s My shoe Rack Respect the place you’re coming from Respect the place you’re coming from Jane Ryan’s sleek, she doesn’t know Respect the place you’re coming from Jane Ryan thinks I know I want to glide through that white trash dreaming Take from the inside, baby hold on tight Into the search for nothing bought My hazy eyes glued to the stove And when their arms fall right and steady Immersing shores in commissary And karaoke turns to blood We’d still be dying to come home Respect the place you’re coming from Respect the place you’re coming from Jane Ryan’s sleek, she doesn’t know Respect the place you’re coming from Jane Ryan thinks I know Respect the place you’re coming from Respect the place you’re coming from Jane Ryan’s sleek, she doesn’t know Respect the place you’re coming from

Sunshine 03:58
Just to see u in the sunshine Brighter lines across your face Tells me everything's okay Stare until my eyes go blind Holding to the insignificance Working hard to pay the rent Just living for the bottom line I just wanna recreate your perfect moment One that keeps you coming back to me I just wanna recreate a certain something Depth with ease that comes so naturally Rider rolling for the big time What's the secret to your style Fall into your eyes for hours Wonder if I could be worthwhile Inside the burning pictures in my mind Daydream creepers swept aside A better kind of getting high I just wanna recreate your perfect moment One that keeps you coming back to me I just wanna recreate a certain something Depth with ease that comes so naturally Tired of trying to be a different person Beneath my eyes it's still a stale grey afternoon the patience cuts through like a deep incision I’ll Bleed all over just to let the sunlight thru Please don't leave it to me Just to see you in the sunshine Brighter lines could seem to me Better kind of being free Still the dials are turning

Summertime 04:08
This place is meant for business Overtook strong in Irish bribes And when their knees are wounded solid Smokey men will get what's right This credit card is my savior I'll run it high for miles And when that check comes gold and written I'll pocket what is mine ‘cause boss Don't take kind To myself Or strangers Drinking rum Wearing shorts Out in the summertime Selling nutrients binds a greeting Broken down on a boulevard And when my CV stands a beating There's my southern greet and charm Pale brown bodies frown Taking off their crowns Yelling lively yelling saying: "How you dare hide that Accent away, away from me" They don't fool around They don't mess around They don't joke around They don’t do around And I can’t tell you what they’re drinking now In the summertime Service growing fast and steady Stamped blanched on a resume And when their plates fall and ready, well There’s my southern greet again Pale brown bodies frown Taking off their crowns Yelling lively, saying: “How you dare not match the 25 cents on the gift card You idiot You fucking mongrel” They don't fool around They don't mess around They don't joke around They don’t do around And I can’t tell you what they’re eating now In the summertime This credit card is my savior I’ll run it high for miles “You’re so healthy, you’re so friendly” well, You’re a joker and you’re a clown

Johnny 03:46
Johnnys got a rocket He's gonna take it to the sun Picking off the pieces A little part of everyone Not that I get sick of it Caught up in the thick of it Mary's got a preacher Says that she's the only one Done with all her research Finding safety in the setting sun Mary you’re the brightest one Building up a thicker skin A shelter more worth living in Someone should tell you the truth About the lying That you do when you're young To keep from cryin’ It's not about how you stand up to the dust But who you learn to trust Picking up the sticks to Build a cabin high up in the woods Focus on the reasons I could make it till the flower bloom Holding hard to sinful wins Back when I could afford them Someone should tell you the truth About the lying That you do when you're young To keep from cryin’ It's not about how you stand up to the dust But who you learn to trust

Smile 03:50
When you drive To the other side of a Run-down state Do you think to yourself "Should I cut loose, or lose the breaks, again?" When you think About anything that might keep you Up at night Does I help with the thoughts That helped you sleep your night away, girl? Well, Don't stop thinking like that ‘cause you'll come right around, honey (honey). Sugar's thicker than blood When I think to myself And I ask, and I say "Don't steal that smile from me, honey” “Don’t steal that smile from me, honey” “Don’t steal that smile from me, honey” When you dream In argument, a twist of fate From the one that you love And the hate that you take Did you think: "I gotta get out of this mess"? When you look So excited For a brand new day And a brand new feeling And a brand new year Did you say "Well maybe I'll try this again”? Don't stop thinking like that You'll come right around, honey, honey Sugar's thicker than blood When I'm think to myself, something nothing Gentle are all the thoughts That keep from you loving kind strangers Sugar's thicker than blood When I think to myself And I ask, and I say "How the hell did I do?" Don't stop thinking like that You'll come right around, honey, honey Sugar's thicker than blood When I'm telling myself, something something Selfish are all the thoughts That keep you from loving kind strangers Sugar's thicker than smoke When I think to myself And I ask, and I say "Don't steal that smile from me, honey" "Don't steak that smile from me, honey" "Don't steal that smile from me, honey" "Don't steal that smile from me, honey" "Don't steak that smile from me, honey" "Don't steal that smile from me, honey"
