Track Name: BEAMER
i can hear ya but i can't see ya
when i'm dreaming
of my old house,
it burned to the ground
but you're still hanging
by the mini-ramp
sitting on your mother's grave
i'm still sitting your grave

i'll see you in my backseat dreams
because my memories escape me
Track Name: LOSE
i can forget about it
i can be with someone new
i can drink and get lit
until i'm seeing two

kiss me behind my old house
tell me i've got something to prove
the more i think about it
i was only trying to lose

wake up in the morning
trace your sleeping eyes with dreamy hands
i can't get my day started
without seeing you

but i'll recede back to school
dark and stormy, refreshing and new
but now when i think about it
i'm still trying to lose
i'm always trying to lose
Track Name: ROOF
don't patronize me
don't say you can't recognize me
when we were on that roof
and adam caught your look
how do you think that made me feel?
i can't remember, i was double fisting beers
yesterday was a good day
mini-van highway with greg
and me with wind in my eyes
mr van is alive!

head back to BK
grabbed a taco and a latte
we don't hang enough
but when we do i can feel the love
Track Name: DEATH
i'm sitting next to you
and i'm putting back a few
and i'm starting to feel the love
this time i know it's true

do you still love me too
when i leave you in the room
to work through your grievances
and contemplate death and dying
