Track Name: Further Now
alone on the road

I wish was less traveled

too narrow to have someone to hold

it’s been 9 long years

since I’ve felt loving lips

or slow dancing hips

the broken thoughts just skip

and skip and skip

further now

always, further now

I think I’ll know it’s you

when I first make you smile

you’ll hang around a while with me

before you have to go

you’ll look deep in my eyes

laces will intertwine

heartbeats will finally align

further now

always, further now

everyday I lose more time with you

they say, “You’re young boy.”
(they say, "You're young girl.")

well, I wanna be young with you
Track Name: I Don't Believe You
come on, tell me
it’ll be alright

so I can cry, ‘cause I don’t believe you

come on, tell me that you’ll stay

so I can cry, ‘cause I don’t believe you

come on, tell me that you’ve been savin’ up

for a trip for us, I don’t believe you

come on, tell me you can see my heart

when you look into my eyes, I don’t believe you

you look away when I say, “I love you.”

you turn away when I come home to see you

I don’t believe you

come on back to me
Track Name: Viganella
brother bed, I ain’t comin’ home tonight

I’m on a high, runnin’ in the moonlight

right where I belong

alone in broken thought

brother bed, I ain’t comin’ home tonight

all my friends are fast asleep

and I am still awake

alone in my heartache

in the dead of night 
I feel more alive

with my tired eyes 
I can see the light

reflected and easier to bear

all my friends are fast asleep

dreamin’ dreams that I can’t keep

in my hands, my slippery hands

lose my grip on every chance

on every dance
I’m right where I belong

alone in broken thought
Track Name: Hold Out
heart lost in the shuffle of the cards

I missed the flush, just wanted a pair

someone to hold, someone to care

someone to dare me to stop this

I’m holdin’ out now

just waitin’ around

feels just like I’m missin’ out on you

let down in the hustle of the love

she didn’t feel, I didn’t heal

for years and years

from fears and fears

brings me back here

starin’ at the pile

I’m holdin’ out now

just waitin’ around

feels just like I’m missin’ out on you

beggin’ again, I can’t let her in

missin’ again, I can’t let her in

let her in

“Let her in!”
Track Name: Kiwi Madcat 24/7
late at night, I can’t sleep

fallin’ into fantasy

SNL on PS3, Diet Coke bubbling

nowhere left in my head

coherent thoughts have gone to bed

watchin’ Abby Elliott

standin’ in the back of the pack

on the phone, speech bubbles
Kiwi Madcat just won’t go

sayin’ things that she sees

anything and everything

I am lost in my head

all the things I should have said

when I saw Abby Ellliott

across the street in my dream last night

what’s wrong with Kiwi Madcat anyway?

what’s wrong with me

when Abby Elliott is across the street

in my dream last night?
Track Name: Mermaid (Cover of Super Ghost)
Written by Jake Newbold of Super Ghost

am I just lonely or just how boring am I?

leave on those colors, babe

they make the room bright

‘cause it gets harder to explain

and I have seen better days in my life
mermaid in the sand

why are you on land?

don’t you belong in the see

as far away from me?

mermaid in the sand

you’re with another man

and he’s not me

‘cause it gets harder to explain
and I have seen better days in my life

all my friends

are gone all summer

and we’re gonna go surfin'
Track Name: Hopeful in the Morning
does anybody here know

where I should go tonight?

I wanna go to sleep but

the timing isn’t right

does anybody know

where I should go tonight?

my head is full of thoughts

that I don’t want anymore

I need to hang with friends

that can open up that door

and push all of them out

before I scream and shout

and lose my voice again

does anybody know?

does anybody know

where I should go tonight?

well everybody’s busy

doin’ other stuff

sometimes I wish that phone calls

would always be enough

sometimes you’re just the one

gets left out of the fun

nobody meant to break

your little heart

I think about a bullet

plowin’ through my skull

I think about a girlfriend

that I will get to know

I think about the people

that say that I’m a fool

I wonder if they have the

exact same thoughts as me

and then I go to sleep

and have forgetful dreams

and wake up feelin’ hopeful in the morning
Track Name: Dull and Gray
turned ‘round again

I didn’t know

you were talkin’ to the back

of my head

you speak so loud

I didn’t know I was walkin’ away

from the way you make everything I love

so dull and gray

burned out again

with nothin’ to show

let that gust of wind

come in full

tear me limb from limb

every part separates

just a cloud of smoke now

I am dull and gray

I want something better

not another word from
you don’t understand I 

don’t want any part of

it is always crumbling

hope is always hanging

onward, I must go where

love is more than words and fantasies

dull and gray fantasies

not for me
Track Name: Further Now (Reprise)
every day I lose more time with you

they say, “You’re young boy.”

(they say, "You're young girl.")
well, I wanna be young with you

young with you
