Track Name: (Secretly) I Hate You
I would walk through hell and back for you.
And I would tie your shoes if you asked me too
I really wish there were a better way to tell you how I feel,
but I guess a shitty song will have to do.

I'm a shitty singer, but that's fine.
My chord progressions are stupid, but I don't mind
I really wish there were a better way to tell you what I think.
And sing you those, instead of send you lyrics by Blink.

I could wait a thousand years to hear you say you're ready,
but I would wait a thousand more to hear you say we're steady.
I'll hold your hand, I'll hold your purse, I'll hold your hair while you puke.
Because even when you're covered in beer and spit, I still think you're cute!

I would take down a hornets nest for you,
without protective clothing if you asked me to.
I guess that's a pretty good way to tell you how I feel,
because I really hate those little fuckers, they sting you and shit and it hurts.

I know it's silly that I wrote this song,
I know that it probably sucks and it's kind of long!
But this is the way that I really feel about you.
And I would do anything, yeah I would do anything, yeah I would do anything if you asked me to.
Track Name: Another Stupid Winter Night
We met at midnight, we all grabbed our bikes
and rode down to the shore.
With cold wind blowing, our noses running.
Yeah, we pedaled as fast as we could.

And when we got there, we all just stared
at the shoreline's push and pull.
We drank 'til morning, then the sun came up
to say goodnight,
Track Name: Christmas And Other Corny Things
I swore I'd write a song about the shit
that happened to us a couple months ago
it was cold, it was cold, it was cold, it was cold.
It was sometime in early November,
we made it all Last 'til December.
Then it all fell apart, but you know how that goes.

It was Christmas time,
I was living in my parents house, trying to get out.
You were going to college, and trying to move on with your life.
We didn't know what to do, but the feelings that we had got us through
all the stupid shit that'd happened in our lives.

(But wait, let's go back to the first time we met)

We met at a party, our friend was going off to war.
I sat on the couch, you sat on the floor.
I didn't think I had a chance
I knew nothing about romance
but I still gave it a shot and I tried my best.
I tried my best.

(Okay, now we can go back to what I was talking about in the first place)

So Christmas came,
and unfortunately I didn't have a dime to my name.
I was ashamed, I was ashamed, I was ashamed, I was ashamed.
You came over with a brand new guitar,
it's the one I still play today.
And I didn't know what to say.

So to pay you back, I'm trying to get my life on track.
And I'm still trying to get you back.
So, Merry Christmas. I wrote this song for you.
Track Name: South Holland
Honesty in ancestry is nothing to believe

we're all liars and we're all cheats

Catastrophy and amity make superficiality

And common sense and decency make nothing but conformity so sing



Burn the world and all the people too

Save yourself and others close to you



I have friends that quit their jobs

Cause their stocks went through the roof

and I have friends who work 9 to 5

DRUNK AS SHIT OFF WHISKEY, 90 proof



Burn the world and all the people too

Save yourself and others close to you



Nothing in life is guarenteed

So grasp your individuality

Burn this world

Burn your fears

Burn your hate

and burn your tears

Burn your boss

Quit your job

But most importantly of all

Don't burn the ones you love
Track Name: Community Love Song (Moon Bandits)
And I'll be here forever
Or until I just die
And I'll see the concrete river
Like the one I can't cry
And I'll search for a reason the whole worlds love to lie
And I'll hope the tide is turning for my sweet baby rye

And You know, And you know I swear this
We'll have community one day
Build a family out of strangers down the way
Build a family out of strangers down the way

We will learn from each other
As we build something pure
We'll teach each other to live
Learn the meaning of secure
This is the end of servitude
We will learn to sweep our own floors
Teach each other to love
We need no less, no more
We need no less, no more

And You know, And you know I swear this
We'll have community one day
Build a family out of strangers down the way
Build a family out of strangers down the way (x2)
