Track Name: Frozen Lake Syndrome
frozen lake syndrome
hanging over
favorite part of
golden winter
ice too slushy
yet too solid
no hockey
or winter swimming

frozen sky syndrome
raining over
the first week of
my november
air too frigid
and hard to breathe in
but sometimes humid
and worse than freezing

some people say that it doesn't matter
if there is a cloud in the sky
but i know how much it matters
when i can't get by
Track Name: Sleep In
sometimes i sleep all day
other times i dream all night
can't get my body to obey
can never sleep past nine

don't get out of bed
it's just messing with your head
there's nothing better to do
than just lay here with you

you shake all over at night
as if you've seen a ghost
it keeps me up, that's alright
it just makes me hold you close

don't get out of bed
it's just messing with your head
there's nothing better to do
than just lay here with you
Track Name: Deja Vu
when i wake up
put my glasses on
still i can't see
the light's not on
then i stumble out
and i brush my teeth
and i go downstairs
and see what's to eat

everyday is a deja vu
every hour is exactly the same
every moment is another clue
that it's all just one big game

when i come home
and i'm done for the day
turn my tv on
there's a game being played
then i close my eyes
and drift off to sleep
and when i wake up
i'll go repeat

everyday is a deja vu
every hour is exactly the same
every moment is another clue
that it's all just one big game
Track Name: Defenestrate
i get so scared when i talk to a girl with a face
i get so scared and i start feeling out of place
it's been a long time since i felt this way, i felt this way at all
it's been a long time and i don't wanna go back to what started it all

i don't wanna fall in love
i just wanna fall out my window
i'm not trying to fall in love
i'm just trying not to fall out my window

i get so scared when i talk to a girl with a face
i get so scared and i start feeling out of place
i just get so mixed up when i think of all that happened in the past
i just so caught up and the memories just make wanna laugh

i don't wanna fall in love
i just wanna fall out my window
i'm not trying to fall in love
i'm just trying not to fall out my window
Track Name: Not So Bad
if she really makes you feel bad
why do you stick around?
if she's really so awful
why do you never seem down?
maybe you're just a liar
when you say that she's a shrew
maybe you're just a bully
maybe the problem is you

you're wrong, all wrong
she's not so bad
you just can't control her
and that makes you mad

you always say she's crazy
but she seems just fine
maybe you need to calm down
maybe this is a sign
what if there's someone out there
who was better for her?
what if you're not the one
and you have more to learn?

you're wrong, all wrong
she's not so bad
you just can't control her
and that makes you mad
Track Name: Meus Columba
meus columba
puella pulchra
i just want you to know

how much you mean to me
how much i think of you
how thankful i am for you

i don't think i do a good job
of always showing you love
meus columba
Track Name: I'm Down
roll up
roll out
get down
go out
get done
come home
in bed
with none

feeling sad
yeah i'm down
and it would probably take you to turn it upside down
feeling blue
yeah i'm down
and it would probably take you to turn it all around

come back
wake up
i've had
enough
see me
in your home
in bed
alone

feeling strange
yeah i'm down
and it would probably take you to turn it upside down
feeling good
yeah i'm down
and it would probably take you to turn it all around
Track Name: Fall Equinox
i have spent my life alone
trapped up in my wooden home
never have time to see my friends
i just want the summer to end

never have time for nothing but school
always seeming like a fool
never have time to see my girl
we live on two separate worlds

it feels like we're almost over
it feels like we're almost done
it feels like the summer's over
and i'm never having fun

my mind is washed up on the rocks
everything that was big now seems small
i hate the thought of going to class
i hate the thought of running on that track

i hate the triple digit heat
and people make me wanna die
i wish my friends were always here
but i really don't have the time

it feels like we're almost over
it feels like we're almost done
it feels like the summer's over
and i'm never having fun
Track Name: Oh My
oh my girl
let me in
let me know just what you're feeling
tell me all about your day
i wanna hear what you have to say
oh my girl
talk all night
you're good with words and what a sight
sometimes i start feeling scared
i try to write but it doesn't compare
to what you've got to say
i don't know what it is that makes me feel this way
i worry so much and forget how you care
but then i see i shouldn't be so scared

oh my word
i need a cheer
this is the worst i've felt all year
all alone on planet earth
feeling lower than the dirt
oh my girl
set me straight
it's been too long since we had a date
sometimes we just get off course
forget to put each other first
what you gotta say?
it's just in my nature to feel this way
i worry so much and forget how you care
but then i see i shouldn't be so scared
