Track Name: Wake Up Alone
wake up alone
and put on a record
something you know won’t make you feel better
feel worse for awhile
then put it away
walk out your front door
just go someplace and stay

stay out past the daylight
past when all the bars close
talk to some strangers ’til they’re people you know
don’t drink too much
find your way home
go to sleep with a record on
and wake up alone

you will remember this as the year that you became
more beautiful then totally insane
more dangerous than you’d ever care to say
and you’ll pretend it’s okay

wake up alone
and put on a record
something you know won’t make you feel better
feel worse for awhile
then put it away
walk out your front door
just go someplace and stay
wake up alone
and put on a record

stay out past the daylight
past when all the bars close
talk to some strangers ’til they’re people you know
don’t drink too much
find your way home
go to sleep with a record on
and wake up alone

wake up alone
and put on a record
(x4)
Track Name: Good Year
echoing empty apartment
where you used to live
and where the idea once existed
that you had something to give

but if it was gonna happen
it would’ve happened here
if it had been your movie
this would’ve been your year

you pause in every doorway
’cause the room’s suddenly haunted
then bond over the feeling
that you’ve somehow become unwanted

in a brash mistake of mem’ry
you can’t be sure if you existed
or that you had any hand in
the random way the plotlines twisted

you team with someone
or someone teams with you
to watch another year become
nothing you expected it to

you stand there with the ghost of
your best-laid plans
and try to say you’re sorry
but he can’t understand
why you were never happy
while you were living here
in your mistaken mem’ry
it seems like a good year
Track Name: Fallout (Indian Summer Version)
i wake up in the morning
feeling pretty strong
surprisingly good
considering
the wicked pulse of last night
and its violent path to sleep
it’s good to see the sunlight
considering
the fog behind my eyelids
and the taste behind my teeth
pushes me to fresh air
and shivering
and it doesn’t mean i’m lonely
necessarily
but once this fog gets lifted
i’ll want company

you loved me
now you don’t
love me anymore
i’m feelin’ pretty normal
considering
you loved me
and now you don’t

or i’ll wake up in the morning
feeling really sad
i’ll listen to a record
imagine that
false sense of comfort
convinced me that i’m right
remember that i’m not
imagine that
first breath of morning
stinging in my nose
cold-flash to last night
and my broken throat
choking out the punchline
“i wish that you were dead”
i know that’s not what i should’ve said

i loved you
now i don’t
love you anymore
i hope that you’re okay
i really do
i loved you
and now it’s through

i loved you
now i don’t
love you anymore
i loved you
now i don’t
love you anymore!
Track Name: Over It
oh to the feeling that you’re so appealing
that someone could be capable of tolerating
your exclusive company for extended periods
oh being young and not afraid to get serious

on the way to your apartment
i counted all the times i’d taken that same bus and sidewalk
to ring the same doorbell
nervous and shaky
hoping that you couldn’t tell

oh to the thought that you might be caught
deep in the clutches of someone who’s not caught in yours
oh the feeling when someone’s not listening
being foolish and in love with anything

all the times we can’t get back
how we could’ve spent them getting to know ourselves
and i could’ve been someone worth knowing

oh to the song that keeps comin’ on
several years later
after she’s gone
how it tears at your heart when it gets to that part
where the strings die
the voice cracks
and you’re still not over it
oh believing that the pain isn’t permanent
Track Name: Henderson (Pt. 1)
my name is henderson
they killed me by surprise
the world looked beautiful
on the day i died
there was light before the sound
there was darkness then the ground
then mystery

i was just walking home down north grand avenue
i paused on second street
knelt down and tied my shoe
when the bullet hit my skin
everything held safe within came bursting out

there is nothing to fear
but you will fear
you will

my name is henderson
they shot me by mistake
but life is driven by the actions people take
and intent don’t mean a lot
to the person who got shot by accident

there’s no reason to guess or expect what comes next
but you will
you will
you will

some moments linger on
and then they slowly fade
others are beautiful
then all the sudden go away
my name is henderson
i felt the sting as it went in
and then i didn’t
