Track Name: So Dark
i saw my friend ben
get as old as a full-grown man
i was seventeen then
and so young

i bathe in pools of light
my frame is lean and slight
it makes me wanna get high
because it's so dark
all around

the music hall of williamsburg
wouldn't let me in as a teenager
i went with ben to see protomartyr
and got turned away

if i went now they would have me
but that was back in february
when i was just a little baby
they would've had ben both times

well it was so dark
it was so dark
well it was so dark
yeah it was so dark
all around

adult livin's so scary
i tripped some balls and it scared me
i've never felt so precarious
in my whole life

all my friends had so much fun
my friend jack talked to a tree some
it said 'there's never nothing'
i mean come on
i mean come on

well i mean come on
i mean come on
i mean come on
well i mean come on
oh yeah

i turned eighteen since i wrote this
i guess they say if the shoe fits
but i don't think i can prove it
without identification

well it was so dark
yeah it was so dark
it was so dark
yeah it was so dark
all around
Track Name: Chill
what is the password and
none is the number but
i can count everything here tonight

and i didn't know
leo
doesn't like games
and what does that
say about him?

too dark to watch too early to touch
i think you know
i try to be cool but i am just clumsy
inside a box
with all of your
friends

and part of me thinks i'm different
and the other part's just waiting for the shoe to drop
so i sit in the kitchen
staring, waiting
while the paint dries

part of me thinks i'm different
and the other part's just waiting for the shoe to drop

and i'm only dreamin'
Track Name: Noah
went to see you play
in that basement on st. claire
the one that smelled like kids
that don't wash their hair
girls with eyes that big
always have dyed hair
and when your band came on they sounded so good
it wasn't even fair

oh noah
nobody loves ya
like i do
my skin got ugly in the
last time you saw me
and i'm sorry

i'm sorry i'm sorry it's like that it's like that it's like that it's like that i know

then you played a cover
of 'strawberry jam'
you really took it to me
when i tried to lend a hand
and when we went for pizza
i didn't know that wasn't your girlfriend
i don't know what happened
i don't know what went wrong
i just know i love you man

oh noah
nobody loves ya
like i do
my skin got ugly in the
last time you saw me
and i'm sorry

do you even got a clue
what i do?

oh noah
nobody loves ya
like i do
my skin got ugly in the
last time you saw me
and i'm sorry
Track Name: Friends
joey is a lot like a hermit crab
came out of the water
came out of the water
joey is a lot like a hermit crab
she came out
came out of the water

she came out from the water
out of the water
out from the water
she came out of the water

pj is a lot like an acorn
fell from a tree
fell right from a tree
pj is a lot like an acorn
fell from a tree
he fell right from a tree

fell from a tree
he fell from a tree
fell from a tree
he fell from a tree

zoe is a lot like a bulldog
ran up to me
ran right up to me
zoe is a lot like a bulldog
ran up to me
she ran right up to me

ran right to me
she ran up to me
ran up to me
she ran right to me

max is a lot like a baseball
threw it to me
threw it right to me
max is a lot like a baseball
threw it to me
he threw himself to me

threw it to me
he threw it to me
he threw it to me
threw it to me
