Track Name: The House
I believe that we are much more complicated than it seems,
You traded everything,
just to get a hold of my heart strings.

Won't you,
Understand me,
How it's,
Never as easy in the end.

You are the thing that makes me want to be,
Who I need to be.

Won't you,
Understand me,
How it's,
Never as easy in the end,
But who really cares anyway?
Track Name: Lacrosse
We all want, one thing,
to bring back the championship.
Numbers, letters, jackets too,
put me in "Skip."

If she don't wanna, if she don't wanna play.
If she don't wanna, if she don't wanna play.

She plays lacrosse on the very best team,
She plays lacrosse on the very best team,
She plays lacrosse on the very best team,
She plays lacrosse on the very best team.

They all know, one thing,
and the coach is by the washing machine.
Will you, put me in or put me out?
Will you put me in or push me out?

She plays lacrosse on the very best team,
She plays lacrosse on the very best team,
She plays lacrosse on the very best team,
She plays lacrosse on the very best team.
Track Name: Something Else
Don't you want to try to be something else?
I'm not telling you to change but you know it would be the best for yourself.

Don't try to realize what you ain't got no more.

Put on a record and darling let's hear you sing.
You know it makes my heart melt when the chorus rings (go walk a mile in my blue suede shoes baby doll)

Don't try to realize what you ain't got no more.
Track Name: In A Tangle
My life's in a tangle,
all I have to show is my love for you.
Track Name: Mercator Projection
People around here,
you know they got their ideas.
You know "Europe has memories,"
"but America's got t-shirts."
I know they walk around like they got a big heart,
and I know deep down its a lie, she says.

Don't think too much,
about it.

Tell me again,
why it's the thought that counts.
Because, I don't know

Don't think too much,
if you don't have to.

People down here,
they treat you like a king.
Seventeen years on the throne, and I'm still shouting it.
I'm still shouting it.

Don't think too much,
if you don't have to.
Track Name: Adult Braces
You hit the car last night,
I know I didn't have to tell you that.
But I'm afraid to say,
with any lack of understanding.
And I know it's not going to work out in the end,
but that's okay, because I'm alright with wasting my time with you.

It's just how I feel, how I feel...

I'm in trouble, I'm in too deep,
I don't know what to do.
They say I could help myself by helping you.
And, I don't believe a thing they say,
oh yeah.

It's just how I feel, how I feel...
Track Name: Sonar Girl
We were raised in the strangest of ways,
caught up in the fiction that's printed each day,
as our parents they dread,
for they all like to say we look like Vampire Weekend.

But please don't let her go away.

My sonar girl...

Communication is the problem in our relation-
ship has sailed away from the ocean,
and taken you away from me my love,
"I know it's not that."

But please don't let her go away.

My sonar girl...
Track Name: Lean On The Coast
Last night I cut my toe on the summer sand,
oh man what a day.
I know when the sun soaks in,
we will feel alright we will feel this way.
Last night I cut my toe on the summer sand I think what I said.

Failure to connect with the world,
what can I do I'm just one man?
I seem to lose my edge, as I watch from the TV screen.
Lean on the coast tonight, la la la.

Well I know the waves won't bring you back now,
so I sit waiting to lose it all.

Lean on the coast tonight,
Lean on the coast tonight,
Lean on the coast tonight,
Lean on the coast tonight,

Well I know the waves won't bring you back now,
so I sit waiting to lose it all.
Track Name: Take A Bath Because The Beach Sucks
All these voices in my head,
are telling me "am I in the right place at the right time?"

Are you alone again?
Are you alone again?

Take a trip to Lake Michigan.
The water is fine, but I'm not swimming.

Are you alone again?
Are you alone again?
I said are you alone again?

Take a bath because the beach sucks,
Take a bath because the beach sucks,
Take a bath because the beach sucks,
Take a bath because the beach sucks.
Track Name: Jorts Are Cool
My jorts are cool,
they keep in style.
I run then walk,
I run the mile.
My jorts are cool,
I am the style.
I am the king,
you are my queen.

I am living so freely now.
I am living so freely now.

I am living so freely now.
I am living so freely now.
