Track Name: The Truth Comes Out
The truth comes out
it comes out through the cracks
When you don't even know it, you still show it

I wouldn't admit it, what I was doing wrong
I still did it, though I guess I kinda knew it
but I wouldn't admit it

But the truth comes out
it comes out through the cracks
when you don't even know it, you still show it

Even alone sometimes we're scared to be true
What if what I do isn't what I expect me to?
What if what I say is a double dose of shit?
Where would I sit?

But the truth comes out
it comes out through the cracks
when you don't even know it, you still show it
Track Name: Punch Party
I don't wanna be a nihilist, but a nihilist just feels so good
I don't wanna believe in this, cause believing this won't feel so good

Annihilate those annihilists I'll annihilate them with my fists

Punching people is just so fun, punch the old and punch the young
Punch the women and punch men, you punch five and I'll punch ten
I'll punch you when you're at the store, you can punch me when I go buy more
Punch the Mayor, and punch his son, punch everyone

Punch party at my place, I'll invite the whole human race
The punch is spiked, it's really strong, now It's time to get along

If you punch me in the face, I'll punch me in the face
Track Name: The Past Does Not Confront Me
I'm really glad that I don't have to see myself day to day
I'm really glad that I don't have to see myself in the past
The past does not confront me in the real world
But sometimes it does in my mind

But it's time to move on

I'm really glad that I don't have to be with myself 24.7
Sometimes I get away, I gotta get away from myself

And it's time to move on
Track Name: The Stories Were All Lies
Who gets along so easy?
Who do I love to shoot the breezy?
She wanders through the streets, different places those she meets
hello Dory, darling baby, how are you?

and when she comes around am I destined to be sad?
or too insane to be honest? or too clumsy for much sound?

OH NO, OH YA

Should I just go out and meet her, like the stories say?

But the stories were all lies
The stories were just lies

Hello Dory darling, what is new?

Can you see that I've been dreaming? Why don't we go somewhere we wanna be?
Can you see that I've been dreaming? Is it much too obvious?
Track Name: Don't Panic
Don't panic, when you panic you get lost.
When you're lost you're not real.

So don't panic, be a good boss.
Take a lead and do you part, when you don't panic you can feel.

So take a bite of danger, and eat it with the peel
you look at it there laughing, and you thank it for the meal.
Track Name: You're My Buddy (And I Love You)
You're my buddy and I love you
you're my buddy through and through
you're my buddy when I need

You're not alone my friend,
you've got a friend in me
so when you need a hand, I'll lend one if I can

Cause you're my buddy and I love you
You're my buddy through and through
you're my buddy when I need

You don't need to hide, the truth won't hurt you here.
You could tell me anything, so tell me everything.

Cause you're my buddy and I love you
You're my buddy through and through
You're my buddy when I need
Track Name: I Don't Need Much
I can see in front of me, on days when I feel ok without
the part of my I got from thinking that I needed something else.

I don't need much money, I get by with some
and I don't need to be funny, if it's not fun
I don't need to have a honey, to fill my lungs
but I don't want to be all alone, always.

Some people think that I'm a dummy, but I'm not dumb
Some days I feel pretty crummy, but my days
I still mess up in front of of buddies, but I'm still young
and I don't want to be all alone, always.
Track Name: Long Distance ASMR Boyfriend
The best songs are never the same
they remind you that you are living
and behind you are all thoughts of pain.

The best songs won't try and pass the blame
they remind you that you're just a brain in a body
and she's just the same

The best songs don't want anything
they just sit there like a coffee stain on a doily
that you love to hate

And when they're gone you'll find they're never very far
just like when I am gone I'm never very far
aren't I right here?

The best songs get stuck in your head
in the morning, just got out of bed
they will find you and they'll make you smile

The best songs keep coming back for more
Coming back to keep giving
they remind you you can always sing

The best songs will always be true
Whether they are yellow red or blue
and the pink ones, they can be true too

And when they're gone you'll find they're never very far
Just like when I am gone, I'm never very far
Aren't I right here?
