Track Name: Sasquatch Sighting
I found a franklin folded underneath my pillowcase and I,
I’ve still got all my teeth

I save a dime and buy the medium sized coffee in a cautionary
Cup of polystyrene

And I don’t
hesitate
To tip the man behind the counter just for counting back my change

And I won’t
be afraid
To flex my cheeks and show my teeth all painted grey with coffee stains

And I’ve still got all my teeth

This ain’t my day-to-day most days
This is my day today
This ain’t my day-to-day most days
This is my day today
This ain’t my day-to-day most days
This is my day today
I wanna know what changes have been made

And I don’t
Complicate
The world wanes in disarray but this perception makes it fade away

And I won’t
Be surprised
When a Sasquatch sits across the aisle sifting through the New York Times

This ain’t my day-to-day most days
This is my day today
This ain’t my day-to-day most days
This is my day today
This ain’t my day-to-day most days
This is my day today
I wanna know what changes have been made

I found a franklin folded underneath my pillowcase and I,
I’ve still got all my teeth

I save a dime and buy the medium sized coffee in a cautionary
Cup of polystyrene

This ain’t my day-to-day most days
This is my day today
This ain’t my day-to-day most days
This is my day today
This ain’t my day-to-day most days
This is my day today
I wanna know what changes have been made

This is my day today
This is my day today
This is my day today
This is my day today
This is my day today
This is my day today
Track Name: Rule the World
How am I supposed to be,
A famous rockstar,
When all the stars that I can see are the ones in her eyes?

How am I supposed to,
Change the world,
When the only thing I wanna change is the expression on her face?

She makes it difficult to rule the world.
To dominate the land like dinosaurs.
She makes it difficult to rule the world.
It might be easier to rule just hers.

How am I supposed to plan,
world domination,
I’m busy planning our next date?

How am I supposed to
Write the best song ever?
I mean each song keeps getting better cause it’s more about her.

She makes it difficult to rule the world.
To dominate the land like dinosaurs.
She makes it difficult to rule the world.
It might be easier to rule just hers.

I see her face in every single piece of toast I make.
I hear her voice in every single song that plays on the radio.
I smell her fragrance every single time I bake a cake.
I think about her all the time. It’s a crime what she does to my mind. It’s a crime.

She makes it difficult to rule the world.
To dominate the land like dinosaurs.
She makes it difficult to rule the world.
It might be easier to rule just hers.

She makes it difficult to rule the world.
To dominate the land like dinosaurs.
She makes it difficult to rule the world.
It might be easier to rule just hers.
Track Name: Sometimes
You’ve got to make a plan
You’ve got take a stand
You’ve got to fake a tan
Creating stakeholders to further your brand

You’ve got to lie to salesmen at meetings
You’ve got to fly in first class seating
You’ve got to buy a wristwatch with pleating
Cause you are competing for handshakes at meetings you say

Sometimes
I make up my mind
Most times
I listen to the lies
Realize
all I really want
Stand by
cause I will proceed on

You’ve got to take
A second look at your day-to-day
But time is money so you better think fast
Or the time and the cash might fade away
On the razor's edge each breakfast
Call it shaving cream of wheat
and by dinner time you’re hectic
As a clock ticking six times each second
But sometimes
You get high in the back of a parked car and
wonder why nothing feels right.
But most times
You are losing yourself in the moment.
You are confusing your friends for opponents.

Sometimes
I make up my mind
Most times
I listen to the lies
Realize
all I really want
Stand by
cause I will proceed on


I make up my mind
sometimes
I listen to the lies
most times
All I really want
real eyes
Cause I will proceed on
standby.
Cause I will proceed on standby
Track Name: The Contender
Stuck in the middle of this place
No expression on my face
A familiar sounding phrase

I am pulling at the veil
Wonder what it might avail
While my palms are turning pale
I will rinse them in the
well flooded with wishes
Where the quarters swim like fishes
This explicit narcissism is submissively suspicious I said

This is
Quite illogical
I’d say
Quite impossible
I don’t
Think I’ll ever know
What’s goin on
But here we are going over again
The same old cracks in this fresh pavement
And here we are going over again
The contender will always contend

There’s a serpent at my feet
And he’s tempting me to eat
From a tree that’s next to me

Let the lions take control
While the prophets just get old
And the poets turn to prose

This is
Quite illogical
I’d say
Quite impossible
I don’t
Think I’ll ever know
What’s goin on
But here we are going over again
The same old cracks in this fresh pavement
And here we are going over again
The contender will always contend
