Track Name: Elmer's
I'm rising through
the ashes im immortilized in elmer's glue
on the wooden statues I made as a child
they're far up on shelves
away from this living hell
that I call my constant instability
my incompatibility, depression
Impressions of sorrow
I always say that I will but then I never do
and all my thoughts just race right back to you
and how bad you're making me feel
I'm a cartoon cow on a white label
a black,shit misplaced guitar cable
waiting for the world to spit me out

I couldn't stand/so I glued my feet to the ground
If you see me by the ocean/please don't come around
And now I'm stuck where I am and I just fall back down

And never could I say I've ever felt this way
Hurricane of human sadness in my stomache
I'm weak willed and I wanna change
even when the bullshit flows through my veins
my whole world would be the same the same
Track Name: My Name is Jake pt.2
Born in the USA
I guess I got a lot to learn and not a lot to say
so I'll just sit inside my car just waiting for my next class to start
and I don't really care about success
to me it means something different
like a job or a car or a kiss
or something that I can achieve
Chicago skies burned in my mind
the first time I made us laugh
I think I fell for you in that concrete jungle
gas station
and months of hanging out after dark I've never known this city better
and afterwords we came back to my house and snuggled on my couch
And I just want a normal day filled with kisses on your forehead while
we're talking in your bed
The light shines through your yellow curtains telling me its time
for me
to leave
And why now did you have to go
this ship has barely left its port
and all I wanna do right now is something that I haven't done
with you
with them
and burn some shit in my backyard

Born in the USA
I guess I got a lot to learn but not a lot to say
so I'll just sit inside my car just waiting for the day
when you become somehting more than a friends at my house after 2:00 am pillow forts and post-hardcore bands my name is jake Pt. 2
