Track Name: Ogygia
All my friends
Want to stay inside
They won't ever
Expand their minds

Ogygia
The gods won't save us now
Odysseus
Tried to save us
Tried to save us and failed

The sound of the ocean
Is all they'll ever hear
The sound of the siren
Is drawing near

Ogygia
The gods won't save us now
Odysseus
Tried to save us
Tried to save us and failed

You gotta get up
You gotta get out
Track Name: Give It Back
I can almost feel my heart decay
After every word I hear you say
I can almost see you cry inside
Every time I look into your eyes

Into your eyes

Babe, you stole my heart
Did you give it back?
Babe, you haunt my mind
With thoughts of our past
Used to think I could
Maybe kill for you
Now I think I would
Rather just kill you

I can almost feel my heart decay
After every word I hear you say
I can almost see you cry inside
Every time I look into your eyes

Into your eyes

Babe, you stole my heart
It's time you give it back
Babe, you rule my mind
Isn't that a laugh?
Babe, you're making me
Start to doubt myself
Make me think I can't be
With nobody else

I can almost feel my heart decay
After every word I hear you say
I can almost see you cry inside
Every time I look into your eyes

Into your eyes

I'm sorry, I
Didn't mean to be mean to you
Just doing what I have to
To try and get over you
Track Name: Blackberries
It's a cold April night in Mississippi
They say the blackberries come to fruition
And I just want to see a band
With some of my friends
Inside
Where it's warm

But they say I'm not of age
And they know my identity's fake
So I'm left with no choice
Left with no choice
But to turn
And walk away

Well, I miss Elizabeth's hands
You don't, but I think she understands
Fingernails, like a well,
Trap the charcoal pastel
And I can't get them out of
My head

Yes, I smoke too many cigarettes
But what else can I do when upset?
Can't just sit at home
Call her up on the phone
Lay my head on the pillow
Just to chat

Because you see, she's overseas
I can't call her, but she can call me
And her days are so busy
She's living a dream
Yet she says she's still thinking
Of me

Can't believe she's still thinking of me
Track Name: April Fools
April's just a girl
Just like any other
But she's something special
Waiting to be discovered

April laughs
And April smiles
She'll give you that look
Then she'll bat her eyes

She's everything
Yeah, she'll act real cool
But be careful, boy
April fools

She'll tell you one thing
And then do the other
Try to comfort you with words like,
"I love you like a brother"

She'll fake a tear
You'll sympathize
She'll innocently
Plan your demise

Your friends try to help
But you'll refuse
Be careful, boy
April fools

So be careful, boy
Be careful, boy
Be careful, boy
April fools

Fool you once
That's just fine
Fool you twice
Something's not right

Fool you three times
They ought to teach it in schools
To be careful, boy
'Cause April fools

So be careful, boy
'Cause April fools

So be careful, boy
Be careful, boy
Be careful, boy
April fools
Track Name: What Beauty Is
Go on
Exploit our home
Brand it the land of
Sand and stone

Or just stone, like your heart
Your eyes see green
One goal in a mind
That's tarnished with greed

You're way ahead of us
On your next edifice
No time to stop and think
What you've done
You've corrupted Eden

If I had the power of the moon
I'd hurl the sea and see what that left you
If I could, I'd use to fire to bring your empire down
I'd watch the Phoenix burn to the ground

You don't know what beauty is

You're way ahead of us
On your next edifice
No time to stop and think
What you've done
You've corrupted Eden
Track Name: But Not Today
I told you I'd take you out
But then you went far away
I'm still gonna take you out
But not today

You told me you loved me first
I didn't know what to say
I swear I'm gonna love you too
But not today

I'm sorry, I
Apologize
Wasn't right
To make you wait so many times

We talked about driving to California
What a fun trip we would take
And maybe one day we'll pack the car
But not today

I told you I'd stop thinking about her
That my feelings for her would fade
That you'll always be my only one
But not today

I'm sorry, I
Apologize
Wasn't right
To make you wait so many times

But not today

You told me that you still loved me
You told me you'd be ok
You told me you wanted to be together
But not today
Track Name: I Can't Wait
I'll wait in the dark
Perfectly still
I won't make a sound
Move in for the kill

I realize my pain
May have been hard to see
So I'll do to you
What you did to me

I've got a flawless plan
To show you I'm a man

I can't wait
I can't wait
I can't wait
To break your heart

I chose you over her
The biggest mistake
You chose him over me
Now you're gonna pay

I'll win your love
I'll make you wet
I'll melt your heart
Till there's nothing left

I've got a flawless plan
You're gonna know I'm a man

I can't wait
I can't wait
I can't wait
To break your heart

I can't wait
And I can't rest
Till I make you feel
Like you're second best

And I can't wait
And I can't sleep
Till I make you dream
Of being with me
Track Name: Happy
She made it look
Like it hurt to smile
Must have been why
I didn't smile for a while

But now all that's changed, yeah
My girl, she make me happy
She make me laugh, and she make me feel
So god damn happy

She got a ring
And a baby on the way
Her mama couldn't be happier
But I wonder what she'd say

If I asked her, "Are you happy?
Are you really so god damn happy?
Does that hippie suffice? Do you still think I'm nice?
And does he make you so god damn happy?"

She made it look
Like it hurt to smile
Must have been why
I didn't smile for a while

But now all that's changed, yeah
My girl, she make me happy
She make me laugh, and she make me feel
So god damn happy
Track Name: Off To War
You were off to war a long time
I'm sorry I didn't write
But that don't mean that I ain't proud of you
I wouldn't have the courage to fight

I didn't keep in touch but
I think we should talk real soon
You can tell me what you're thinking
I can play you this new tune

We used to be good friends but
We went our separate ways
I'm sorry we don't talk much
But I still pray that you're ok

We can talk about old stories
From the marching band
You can tell me your sad stories
When your friends died in the sand

Sometimes I think about you
When I'm watching the news
I wonder how you're doing
And how your family's doing too

We used to be good friends but
We went our separate ways
I'm sorry we don't talk much
But I still pray, are you ok?

Times are hard, I know
Trapped inside a bad TV show
It'll all be over soon
When there's a new man in the oval room
Track Name: Don't Answer
Does he shake?
Does he shake, god damn it, does he shake?
Does he make
Does he make the little noises that I make?

Does he make you smile?
Don't answer that
Does he drive you wild?
Don't answer that

He's calling you on the phone right now
Don't answer that
Can I kiss you on the mouth?
Just answer that

Does he write you songs?
Does he make you feel like you belong
With him? Though he may
Continue pushing you away

He's calling you right now
Don't answer that
Can I kiss you on the mouth?
Just answer that
