Track Name: Sometimes You Notice
Wake up in the morning
Laying in my bed
Think about all the things
That really get to my head

Sometimes you notice
Life goes on without you
Sometimes it’s all you can
Do to really care

Walk down the street
Never know where I’m going
All the people that I meet
Say nice to meet you
How ya’doin

But I can’t really tell
Nor can I complain
Cause the things that we
Choose to talk about
You know they
don't mean anything

Ignorance is bliss
Always been that way
Another hit and miss
And time it slips away

Sometimes you notice
Life goes on without you
Sometimes it’s all you can
Do to really care

Go to sleep at night
Laying in my bed
Tell myself I’m alright
That I’m more alive than dead

Then I get up
And have another cigarette
And I tell myself that it’s easy
Better to forget
Track Name: Shithead
Same old shit
Going through my head
She don’t notice no
She’s crazy dead

Practice what you preach
You say come on
Practice living
in your lie

The lion is there
But he wont eat you today
You don’t seem
to be his type na, na, na, na

Look here child
What do you think this is
I’m standing on

This is blood
And dirt
And the sweat of man

Mind over matter ain't
that what they always say
It just don’t matter
Once you turn away

Thanks to your mind
Your so full of wit
Thanks to your mind
You got to live with it yeah

Meet me down there
At the playground
Tomorrow night

Just to need you
Uh, uh, uh,
Feels alright

Same old shit
Going through my head
guess that kind of makes me
a shithead

Practice what
you preach
Try yeah
Wont you try living
On rice and beans
You’d like it

A little boy down there
Don’t eat a thing
But he’s been eaten
That way for weeks ha, ha, ha, ha

Look here child
What do you think this is
I’m standing on

This is blood
And dirt
And illegal contraband

Look here child
What do you think this is
I’m standing on

This is blood
And dirt
And the sweat of man
Track Name: Alone
I was traveling
This town
You never fail to
Let me down

Pictures hung up
On the wall
That don’t bother you
At all

Though you weep
For brighter days
There’s always so much
In the way

That life it seems to
Pass me by
Just something caught there
In my eyes

Before they close
And let you in
I did not know this
Was the end


But I can’t be
Alone tonight
No I can’t be
All alone

No one should have
To be on There own
No one should have
To be all alone

And when you wake
To find me there
You’ll find it in you
To repair

The damage
That I might have done
I know I’m not
The only one

You’ll find it
In you to forgive
You had to live
The life you live

But I can’t be
Alone tonight
No I can’t be
All alone

No one should have
To be on their own
No one should have
To be all alone

Well I was traveling
This town
You never fail
To let me down
Track Name: Marshmallow Man
I never Really did see
The marshmallow man
All the kids told me ‘bout it
Said it was amazing man
Lizzy was a deadbeat
You don’t understand
The girl had everything
Had the world up in her hand
She started smoking meth though
She got it from a friend
Lizzy didn’t have any friends
In the ambulance in the end
Jimmy was a rock star but
He never finished school
Traded his guitar
For a job down at the pool
all the kids in this town
Can only go so far
Before life wears you down
Like a faded scar-
Sing it out loud
Timmy was a big shot
They called him big Tim
There wasn’t anything
Big Tim couldn’t win
Then he got drunk once– DUI
Five years later you wouldn't even
Know the same guy- Cause he's been
Working at the filling station
Why does it feel like
An infestation– in my eyes
Every time I get out of here
To my surprise– I find there is
No getting out of here– its in my eyes
I never really did see
The marshmallow man
All the kids told me ‘bout it
Said you’d never believe it man
Just to see him up there
Doing what he did
There wasn’t anyone
Who could ever stop him
sing it out loud
Something strange
In your neighborhood
Who you gonna call
Something strange
And it don’t look good
Who you gonna call
All the kids in this town
Can only go so far
before life wears you down
like a faded scar
Before life will drag on you
Like a cigar
Before life will run you down
Like a beat up rusted car
Sing it out loud
Turn it up and
have another beer
We ain’t never getting’
Out of here
Turn it up– go on
Have another beer
we ain't never
getting out of here
no, no, no
Billy was a retard but
He always tried real hard
His old man would to beat him
cause hid his report cards
Then he joined the army-
Afghanistan
Got blowed up by an IED
Buried in the sand
Billy got fragged yeah
Before he was a man
The kid used to stutter all the time
Cause he just didn’t understand
He told him be a man
Go and be a man
Marshmallow man
Track Name: You
See you down
On your side
And I
Wonder why you lay there

All the times
You held me tight
And I
wonder what you gave me

Makes no difference
In the long run
You got what you came for
Yeah you

Throw me down
On the ground
You burn me
You burn me

Light your cigarette
Up in my face
And it hurts me
It really hurts me

You said
I was mad about you
And you deserved me
You deserved me– yeah you

Used to talk about
Changing the world
But did it ever
occur to you

That you could
Do anything
Man you could do
Anything you wanted to

Now there’s
a light on
But it doesn’t shine
in your face no more

And I was so
Beside myself
Oh man I just didn’t know
My place anymore– with you

Throw me down
On the ground
You burn me
You burn me

Put your cigarette
Out in my face
And that learned me
It really learned me

You said
You were mad about me
and that you’d earned me
You’d earned me– yeah you
Track Name: Traveling
If I was here
Wouldn’t think this where
I wanted to be

If I was here
Don’t you think that’s the way
It was supposed to be

If I was free
Yeah free
Free to fly away

Well I’d pack up
My small belongings
I’d tell all my friends
To do the same
Then we’d all strap packs
Onto our backs
And hit the road again

Because traveling
Is the new
Revolution

People get
Out of your jobs
I mean
What does it
Give to you

People stop
Paying your credit cards
Cause
They’re going to get you

Oh yeah
You tie yourself down
In so many ways
That at
The end of the day
You don't know
who to pay

But if you’re not
Working for yourself
Then
Why you being a slave– man

And I’m traveling
It’s the new
Revolution

Well I met a man
On the road
He said
Where do you come from
I said hey buddy
Did you know that
We’re both going the same way

And that’s what I am
Trying to say— we are all one
And when you truly love someone
That’s when your travels
Just begun
Track Name: #Occupy Your Heart
when you don't know what to do
when you don't feel like you
when you're alone in the dark
occupy your heart

when it is time to change
when everything feels strange
when you are standing in the park
occupy your heart

when you can no longer think
when you wake up from the dream
promise me you won't fall apart
just occupy your heart

occupy your heart
occupy your heart
when you don't know where to start
occupy your heart
