Time Filler 02:44
I was expired Still getting used four months past my date You should have just left me in trash to never reinstate But I'm glad I could tide you over and help you out along the way Right down to that last fifty bucks and prom date You brought new meaning to the term "Get the most of out of everything" You left your interest and appreciation somewhere on your floor You said what you had to say to get by But I was just filling your time and you were just wasting mine Please keep those small texts to yourself Cause I don't want to be friends or anything else And stop saying, "Please don't hate me" cause I don't feel for you at all You're out of my mind and into my past I don't care how we left off last I'm never looking back on that I'm never looking back on that You brought new meaning to the term "Get the most of out of everything" You left your interest and appreciation somewhere on your floor You said what you had to say to get by But I was just filling your time and you were just wasting mine You're out of my mind and into my past I don't care how we left off last I'm never looking back on that I'm never looking back on that You're out of my mind and into my past I don't care how we left off last I'm never looking back on that Never looking back Never looking back

Real Sirs 03:16
A sleepless summer in the 309 And I can't help but think that things might finally be right for me this time Fourth of July at Jeffeory's with the real sirs Fireworks just missed me I think I'm barely hanging on This whole year I was hanging by a thread I think I'm barely hanging on This summer came right around to pull me up Grab your trunks, it's about to begin A summer in the 309 with my friends And I hope that it never, ever ends It never ends, it never ends Grab your trunks, it's about to begin A summer in the 309 with my friends And I hope that it never, ever ends It never ends, it never ends House shows at 305 West Hovey I can get by when my friends are around me And I don't think that there's any place that I'd rather be Another late night at Denny's with some real sirs Endless pancakes for Tony Psyche! I think I'm barely hanging on This whole year I was hanging by a thread I think I'm barely hanging on This summer came right around to pull me up Grab your trunks, it's about to begin A summer in the 309 with my friends And I hope that it never, ever ends It never ends, it never ends Grab your trunks, it's about to begin A summer in the 309 with my friends And I hope that it never, ever ends It never ends, it never ends One winter might set me down Summer came and turned it all around Grab your trunks, it's about to begin A summer in the 309 with my friends And I hope that it never, ever ends It never ends, it never ends Grab your trunks, it's about to begin A summer in the 309 with my friends And I hope that it never, ever ends It never ends, it never ends

Cutting Ties 03:11
Small town USA Where everyone knows everything about you or so they think Closed minds and blind eyes I'm getting out and growing up because you know I've had enough of this I hate your small town mind and your big mouth And how think you know just what it is you're talking about I'll have you know there's more opinion in this world Than the one that's formed at your family's dinner table You've got a thick skull It's not protecting anything except your derailed train of thought So give up now and cut your losses Cut your losses Cut your losses I'm getting out I hate your small town mind and your big mouth And how think you know just what it is you're talking about I'll have you know there's more opinion in this world Than the one that's formed at your family's dinner table It feels good to be back in Bloomington, the place I call my home To think I wouldn't call it that just one year ago Something's surely changed in me, far away from people I don't need They'll try to bring me down, but they won't succeed I've got no ties there I've got no ties there I've got no ties there I've got no ties there And I'm getting out

How many times in the last three years have I wished that I was on the east coast? As many times as I've pushed that thought away Because I thought I would always stay here But there's nothing here for me anymore I'm starting to realize that Everything I've ever wanted to achieve since I was fourteen requires leaving So I write one more nostalgic song Put this guitar away and I'm gone Half of my favorite records are about leaving And the other half say, "Stay the same" I'm stuck inside the push and pull of here and there But there's just one thing I want to be I'm slowly finding friends who feel the same as I do I'm starting to realize that Everything I've ever wanted to achieve since I was fourteen requires leaving So I write one more nostalgic song Put this guitar away and I'm gone Everything I've ever wanted to achieve since I was fourteen requires leaving So I write one more nostalgic song Put this guitar away and I'm gone

Eureka 03:03
I've been dodging punches this whole year Mainly my own And I wonder why sometimes I feel so alone I've been looking for myself to find out who I really am Like the things that make me happy and the things that I can't stand And I swear I found myself one time I was in South Carolina watching the sun rise Seven AM, sitting in the sand Watching the sun come over Myrtle Beach I found myself on the second day Balance, time, and positive mind go a long way But I was just too late She was gone and I was thinking of all the things that I've done wrong I had a racing mind that was out of time Reminiscing four years I had to leave behind Looking back on them I realized I was chasing dreams that just weren't mine And people change and nothing stays the same At least in my case Seven AM, sitting in the sand Watching the sun come over Myrtle Beach I found myself on the second day Balance, time, and positive mind go a long way But I was just too late I found myself one time this year It was in South Carolina I found myself one time this year But I was just too late I found myself one time this year It was in South Carolina I found myself one time this year But I was just too late I found myself one time this year It was in South Carolina I found myself one time this year But I was just too late I found myself one time this year It was in South Carolina I found myself one time this year But I was just too late And I was just too late But I was just too late
