“From Asheville, to Sarasota Pt III:The Sad Part About Truth Is, Everything’s Prettier Without It”

Today she’s going to wake up in the same way
Does her makeup in the mirror for her own sake
It’s the routine that keeps it all arranged
Here’s the shake-up, it’s gonna change
They say she’s getting weaker by the day
Times more precious than every other thing
She’s got thoughts of all she ever wanted to say

“There’s no soft truth in this time crunch
I can’t fake this to everyone
No longer can I watch the moon chase the sun”

To live our lives for all these times,
Til you decided we’ve had enough.
To make this thing, to break this love.
Til fate decided to make this tough.

Today she’s going to wake up in the same way
A glance at the mirror, there’s no reason for today
Lay around in a drugged daze, cause the dreams are far better
Then the reality that it doesn’t matter if her skins glazed
Here’s the shake-up, here’s the big change
There’s a boy who’s on the side for more of the same
But when her mind’s made up, she’s seldom swayed.

“There’s no reason to hurt you with lies
Of saying I’ll be there when summer dies
No longer can hearts walk in hand with fate”

“From Asheville, to Sarasota”


I’m falling faster than a comet
She knocked me out of orbit,
I was wandering around this system
Just waiting to be absorbed
I never had direction, just fuel and motivation
I never knew I was missing something so deep and interesting.

She said, “I like the way you roll through, pretending you’re unstoppable.
But I’ve seen the way you move, and you know that it’s improbable.
You’re gonna have to stop and enjoy the space around you.
So hover for a second baby, I’m the star that’s gonna shine on you.
I’ll illuminate your path, so you can find the destination
I’ll be the light for your life, so you’re never left guessing.
I’ll follow through and be with you until we’re both cold and gasping
I’ll make the galaxies pass by so fast you’ll never know that we’re dying.
Cause in the end, you’re the one I chose to flow into infinity
We know that there’s a finite end to the lives that we are leading”

“From Asheville, to Sarasota Pt II.”


I couldn’t fight your future,
You couldn’t hold my past
Fate stepped on toes,
I watched them swell
Until you said at last.

“Nothings real, no,
Nothing at all, we don’t exist.
We can climb together, until your grip on me just slips.”

I never understood the words, I swore I’d never let go.
“If it was up to me, I’d hold your hand until it broke.
I’ll continue on with one, pulling you up by my side.
So don’t you worry darling, I’ll never ever let you slide.”

And then she let go.

“Safety Briefing”

[Verse 1 – Slow build]
It’s been a long day inside,
And now it’s time to get shitty
Saturday night, we’re in a different city
Hit up every local bar
Make our way by foot or car
It doesn’t matter what the clock says cause
Bad decisions are coming after us

And right before we take the plunge,
Into illegal activities
My brothers turn in a stupor and say,
These fucking words to me

[Bridge-Spoken]
“I’m going to get her number! Dude, she’s a hostess!
She’s got baby teeth! Back down bro!]

[Chorus – Fast Part]
Don’t fucking drink!
Don’t fucking drive!
Wrap up your dick!
You’ll stay alive

Don’t swim at all!
Don’t beat your dog!
Check her ID!
You’ll make it out

These words of wisdom,
Could never fucking stay with me
I vi-o-la-ted
Over half our safety brief

[Bridge-Spoken]
“Well, do you want to play pool? Fuck Yeah!”
[Breakdown] Go!

[Verse 2]
Our words slow down,
We’re losing all control of thoughts now
Ten shots and strippers are the life all that we’re
ALL ABOUT!
Pile your asses in the car
Who’s good to drive? Who’s got the keys?
We’ll be alright, it isn’t far
Let’s fucking go! Get in Your Seats!
[Breakdown]

[Chorus – Fast Part]
Don’t fucking drink!
Don’t fucking drive!
Wrap up your dick!
You’ll stay alive

Don’t swim at all!
Don’t beat your dog!
Check her ID!
You’ll
Make
It
OUT
[End Breakdown]

Part Of The Ship, Part Of The Crew. (Re-Enlistment Window)

“Part Of The Ship, Part Of The Crew. (Re-Enlistment Window)”

He comes, he comes for you, you’ll never know what hit you
It’s time, it’s time to choose. Can you leave, or will you fall prey to
Every struggle,
The choice that we all had to make
I swear, it’s trouble,
The enemy will always raise the stakes

[Chorus]
He’ll never let you go
You can never leave
Part Of The Ship!
Part Of The Crew!

Here’s Twenty Grand
You’ll never see
Part Of The Ship!
Part Of The Crew!

You’re a quota,
You’re a number,
You’re another that
Can’t make it out alive
Sign up for another fucking five

[Verse 2]
I promise you, it’s gonna be the longest year you’ve ever had
Endure for us, for everyone who isn’t strong enough to resist
The offers
The promises that don’t come true.
Don’t you falter
When you escape, we’ll salute you

[Chorus]
He’ll never let you go
You can never leave
Part Of The Ship!
Part Of The Crew!

Here’s Twenty Grand
You’ll never see
Part Of The Ship!
Part Of The Crew!

Fuck a quota.
You aren’t a number
You’re the only one that
Can make it out alive
Get out and enjoy civilian life

[Breakdown]
GOD REST,
THE SOUL
OF SPECIALIST SPIDERMAN
HE DID
THE JOB
AS ONLY A SPIDER CAN

-END

“42Alphacadabra”

[Verse 1]
Saturday, and my hands are full, with everything I’ve done
Got a stack of 1380’s, thinking about submitting some
But!
You!
Know!
What’ll happen.

Im!
Poss!
Ible!
To fucking track them

[Chorus]
I saw the wand
I saw the cape
A puff of smoke and you made
My paperwork go up in flames

I file complaints
But nothing changes
(Changes! [Gang Vocals])
42Alphacadabras!
So fucking shameless!
[Generic Breakdown]

[Verse 2]
The lines are long outside your office, despair is thick outside your door
My feet trail the same pathways, as when I submitted this before.
You!
Grin!
At Me!
I can’t stand it.

Just!
Set!
It down!
You fucking bandit.

[Chorus]
I saw the wand
I saw the cape
A puff of smoke and you made
My paperwork go up in flames

I file complaints
But nothing changes
(Changes! [Gang Vocals])
42Alphacadabras!
So fucking shameless!
[Keyboard bridge]

UP IN FLAMES!
I!
SAW!
THE WAND! [x 10]

“Hannah Is A Palindrome”

“Hannah Is A Palindrome”

I’d lie to tell you,
Life’s nothing but a ruse.
All the things you’ve held so close are drifting
It’s your time to choose

But you know,
That you won’t
Cause you’re too busy living pretty.
You’re letting these things go

(Chorus)
The world is spinning wildly,
I’d think that you would know.
Instead of going crazy,
You’re so focused on your toes

Color them shades of happy
Of times once better spent
And finish telling stories
Of how you’re all the rage to them

[Verse 2]
You’d let your guard down
If the color’s right
And everything you’re missing is found tonight
Don’t let these things go
It’s all you could hold
Don’t lose your grip though
We’ll make it out alright

[Chorus]
The world is spinning wildly,
I’d think that you would know.
Instead of going crazy,
You’re so focused on your toes

So color them in shades of happiness,
Of times once better spent
And finish telling me those stories
Of how you’re all the rage to them
