Track Name: Surfing the Modern World
Lazy afternoon I choose to waste away down in my room cause
I'm gonna stay here for a while
Avoid the busy world outside, but the front door is still open wide so
Maybe I'll see if that's my style

The summer sun is setting deep inside my head
And I just wanna go to bed
I'm surfing through the modern world and it's not free
That's all it really means to me
Hey TV set, hey internet, so long
Just got to find somewhere that I belong

Danger's gonna call from the attic to the shopping mall but
Let's take it in for just a while
A nuclear family apparently was not my destiny but
I don't really care, I just wanna smile
And if you find bliss in ignorance and I find bliss in ignorance
I guess it makes a lot of sense that we ignore each other
But now this world's a pretty sight, so maybe I'll do something right
One day I'll grow some common sense and stop bouncing the Checqz
Track Name: 18 P.S.I.
Everybody listen
I made my last decision
I'm the weakest and the smallest
But now I've got a mission
I'm gonna be what I wanna be

When all the people said I
Had to be a nice guy
I said screw it, I'm gonna be a pool toy
Now what I fear is what fears me

To whom this letter concerns, I
Never had a chance to talk to mister Checqz myself, but
I think he's a pretty swell guy, yeah

Well, am I wrong for doing this
Does everyone just wanna be something they won't miss?

To whom this letter concerns, I
Never had a chance to talk to mister Checqz myself, but
I think he's a pretty swell guy so
Why don't you let him take the job?
It's a big responsibility
But I think he's the right guy
For your 18 PSI
Track Name: Soda Pop Disaster
I don't
Believe it
Until I get to see it

My glass
Transparent
It's leading me astray

It's late
I give up
I really should go home now

Back room
Cold soda
That's where I'll hide away

Then you start looking at me with those eyes
I don't know what to do but I know that

It sounds like a personal problem
And I only know one way to solve em
How could this get any worse any faster
Its gonna be a soda pop disaster-er
Call the doctor

The fizz
The fission
It's breaking the illusion

Oh snap!
I screwed up
Should quit while i'm ahead

No way!
I'm leaving
Before they draw conclusions

Last sip
I'll take it
Still breaking character

Come on
Let's get out
We'll ditch the people calling

Why can't
I think straight
With sugar and caffeine

Then the pressure starts and it builds in my face
And I'm a teenage wreck and I know that

It sounds like a personal problem
And I only know one way to solve em
How could this get any worse any faster
Its gonna be a soda pop disaster-er
Call doctor pepper
Track Name: Sanctuary
She's a mystery
And I'm still just a fantasy
On some teenager's memory

Now I could tell myself
That someday I should stop myself, but
I still cling to that hope
That she's with me

And though my methods aren't so clear
I'll have my very own deer

I think that I'm in love with her
But she doesn't know me
It's like my brain just isn't there
I'm not a sanctuary
Track Name: POTUS
I don't like the options
There's not much to work with
Electing a robot
Or an orange spitting lies

What makes them so able?
They seem so unstable
If they could be choices,
Then why couldn't I?

I wanna be the president
I wanna be the president
The POTUS is the job that is the best, because
I'm gonna be the president

I know it won't happen
But I can be hopeful
And just like the voters,
My thinking is wishful

Vote wasn't counted
Guess write-ins aren't worth it
But I'm not discouraged
In four years I'll try

And it's been my dream for so long
At least 'til I thought they were wrong

I wanna be the president
I wanna be the president
The POTUS is the job that is the best, because
I'm gonna be the president
Track Name: Future Me
I took a ride on the internet today
Turns out that yesterday
I was not okay
Saying stupid things on Reddit, and
I'd like to forget about it
But everything that I say on the ol' Internet
Stays on there all the time until I regret it

So, what will I say when I see myself today
And all the things I do
I think's so cool
When I'm really just being a fool and
I'd like to forget about it
But everything that I leave on the ol' Internet
Stays on there all the time 'til I start to doubt it

How come one day later, i'm such an idiot?

Future me doesn't think that I'm funny
Future me still laughs at everything I say
I don't care what he thinks, I'll be happy
I don't have to deal with future me today
Maybe tomorrow
Track Name: Copycat
I'm sorry for the things I said
I didn't know you would be like that
I'm sorry for all the things I do
I didn't plan for you to do them too
I don't wanna be you

I bet you're not gonna make it far
I can see it in your repost bar
There's one thing you should really do
See yourself from another point of view
I don't wanna be you

You may not be a feline
But you must admit
you're a copycat
I don't want none of that

You come around and kick down the door
The next second and I'm on the floor
You're acting like you're so oblivious
I don't know why I'm so serious, it's true
I don't wanna be you

You may not be a feline
But you must admit
You're a copycat
I don't want none of that!
Track Name: Bubblegum
Darling, could you spare a bit of bubblegum for me?
Cause I could use a little lifting of my spirits
Won't you set the radio to the classics?
Darling, could you spare a piece of bubblegum for me?
Could you take me to that place and time
where I would always feel so fine, say

Whoa-oh-oh I feel so good today
Whoa-oh-oh I feel so good today
Like I don't got a worry in sight
And I'm gonna set the record spinning right
Til' I pop tonight, let's set it right

Oh darling, you could spare a cherry bomb for me?
Cause I could use a little signal that I'm right
No I don't wanna fight now so,
Please, darling, could you spare a little happiness for me?
We could take a walk down the Pacific
To put it more specific, I'd say

Whoa-oh-oh I feel so good today
Whoa-oh-oh I feel so good today
Like I don't got a worry in sight
And I'm gonna set the record spinning right
Til' I pop tonight, let's set it right

The Rock and Roll's got our feet moving
The dance floor's gonna keep us grooving
Into the good old times and good old days
And we will be so happy, together and so sappy
We're moving to the music far away

Whoa-oh-oh I feel so good today
Whoa-oh-oh I feel so good today
Like I don't got a worry in sight
And I'm gonna set the record spinning right
Til' I pop tonight, (gibberish)

Whoa-oh-oh I feel so good today
Track Name: He, She, It, Them
She
She doesn't want it to make sense
She doesn't care about progress
She leads him on, he's too far gone, but
He
He's always overreacting
He always thinks she'll ignore him
Well, it's not a lie if he's always right, so
what's he gonna do?

I guess he didn't get the girl (as if he wanted to!)
I guess he didn't get the girl (as if he wanted to!)
She comes around again
He knows he can never win so
Looks like the girl's the one who got him!

She
She's changing moods with the season
She's got no rhyme and no reason
A rescue dog in the haze and fog, but
He
He's got no morals or merit
He's got the brain of a carrot
His heart is plastic and she's ecstatic
Now
Track Name: Hella Crazy
Well, the world spins around, and I've been stationary
I've got '65 problems and you ain't one
I jumped on the wagon, but I'm no legionary
I'm gonna take my leave, gonna have some fun

These city walls can't hold me down!

Hey hey!
I'm running away
You're never gonna find me
I hope you don't hate me
Hey hey!
I'm running away tonight!
Track Name: Riches
Now I don't need the money
And I don't want the fame
I don't need everybody
Out there to know my name

I'm still too young for love
And I think I'd rather wait
But there's one thing I can think of
That would make me feel so great

I don't want all the riches
Or sweet things in the world
I just want a million dollars
Is that too much to say?

No I wouldn't say I'm greedy
I would say that I'm just poor
And I know that money won't fix me
But I don't know that for sure

Oh, if all the kings and queens out there
The pop stars and celebrities
Would spare a dollar for me
Well, I know that I'd get there

I don't want all the riches
Or sweet things in the world
I just want a million dollars
Is that too much to say?

I don't want all the riches
Or sweet things in the world
I just want a million dollars
Is that too much to say?

I just want a million dollars
Is that too much to say?

I just want a million dollars
Is that too much to say?
Track Name: House Sweet House
My room feels like a prison cell
If you saw, you'd get the parallel
Cramped conditions for the dog I want to be

Punk rock posters on the wall
Make me look like a neanderthal
Pizza boxes, soda cans
Under my seat

A house that's not a home
Sometimes it's so alone
But with my couch and television
It's such a good distraction, so I just
Wake up
And sit up
And give up
And stomp the floor
I screw up
So shut up
And grow up
And slam the door

Returning to where I confide
In the attic by the algaecide
At least I'm not caught up in the arguments and flak

Partaking in the summer air
Makes me feel like I'm a millionaire
Take a stroll outside and I'm never looking back

A house that's not a home
I swear it's so alone
You don't have to pick sides as long as you
Never pick a fight and so I just
Don't talk
And don't move
Don't argue
And say I'm done
Just kick back
And relax
I'm so bored
I'm having fun
