Track Name: Halfway Around The World
When you told me ‘bout your dreams
That you wanna see the world
t' was something you just had to do
it's just a month or two you promised me
I did the right thing, let you go
I never could have guessed how miserable it made me

Do you know what's on my mind
letters, postcards telling me
you would come home this fall
you can't keep leading me on
Expecting me to wait for you
to decide to return

Now you're halfway around the world
Living day to day
not knowing where you'll end up next
It must be swell for you
But I am back here stuck at home and all alone
I wonder if you still miss what we had together

Do you know what's on my mind
Images of you and strange guys lining up for you
Are you telling me the truth, or are you just waiting
for me to snap and to break up

My friends tell me I should let go
To meet new chicks and just have fun
I must admit they have a point
guys, introduce me to this blonde
I'm gonna take her home
And do the things to her that you denied me

Do you know what's on my mind
all the girls I've taken home with me to forget you
You can stay right where you are
It's up to you I don't care anymore and I'm not sorry
Track Name: Daddy Issues
I should have known right from the start
when all my friends were saying just how cool you are
You come back home late every evening, leave me guessing
who the hell you've done

The smell of cheap cologne and shame surrounds you
your eyes are avoiding mine
I kinda know what's going on, can't prove it
be honest, or just get out

I see the pictures on your wall
the alcohol, the frat boys trying to get some
You are too insecure to hold'em off
Your daddy issues are too strong
The smell of cheap cologne and shame surrounds you
your eyes are avoiding mine
I kinda know what's going on, can't prove it
be honest, our just get out

I might as well just break it off
Then all my worries would be gone
Somehow I can't because you're way too freakin' hot
The smell of cheap cologne and shame surrounds you
your eyes are avoiding mine
I kinda know what's going on, can't prove it
be honest, or just get out
Yeah just get out
And leave my sight
Yeah just get out
This is goodbye
Track Name: Gone
Cold summer evening
sitting on my front porch
the same old tape keeps playing and
the blanket barely covers us at all
it's getting late now

But I don't want to let this go cause
Tomorrow you'll be gone

Stay close to me until you have to go
Don't fall asleep the sunset's wonderful
Let's stay outside for one or two more songs
Before I have to carry on alone

A brand new morning
The silence lingers on
Your absence overwhelms me and
Sometimes I think I hear you but I don't
you're gone forever

And then I think back of that evening
of how we said goodbye
Stay close to me until you have to go
Don't fall asleep the sunset's wonderful
Let's stay outside for one or two more songs
Before I have to carry on alone
And then I think back of that evening
of how we said goodbye
Stay close to me until you have to go
Don't fall asleep the sunset's wonderful
Let's stay outside for one or two more songs
Before I have to carry on alone
Track Name: Don't Call Me Shirley
Was at my parents’ house, went to the basement
And what I found was surely nothing less than greatness
A dusty VCR and all my 80's tapes
Ghostbusters Goonies, Die Hard and the Terminator

Get out my hat and whip and start the exploration
Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Ferris Bueller, come and pick me up
I hate detention, but I really love the breakfast club
Please don't feed me after midnight
Don't call me Shirley

Even nerds can get revenge and did you know that
werewolves play basketball

And now it sucks so hard that I'm all grown up
I cannot call my friends to play my all-time favorite scenes of
Back to the Future and ride my hoverboard
Or use my feet to play songs on the toy stores' big piano

And now it's time to come home from imaginationland
But wait I shrunk the kids

Ferris Bueller, come and pick me up
I hate detention, but I really love the breakfast club
Please don't feed me after midnight
These 80's movies make me feel like everything's alright
Ferris Bueller, come and pick me up
I hate detention, but I really love the breakfast club
Please don't feed me after midnight
Don't call me Shirley
Track Name: Cut The Ties
These streets where I used to belong have abandoned me lately
I barely still recognize them
Now the place I was born and raised faced so much
Changes beyond what I can recall
That's just the way it always goes
But it still pains me
Time to move on
What I used to know is gone
Precious to me once
Unfamiliar now
But it's alright
a new chapter in my life
waiting for me when
I cut the ties
Not too long ago I felt like I knew everyone out here
But all my friends moved out
And my favorite bars and shops have closed down only my memories
Are all what I can count on
The places where we used to hang
How I miss those days
Time to move on
What I used to know is gone
Precious to me once
Unfamiliar now
But it's alright
a new chapter in my life
waiting for me when
I cut the ties
Turn my head and leave all behind
A nomad, no place where I don't feel confined
Until I let go and accept
my past washed away and
no use giving in to
history's call

Let's burn this place down to the ground
Find a new haven

Time to move on
What I used to know is gone
Precious to me once
Unfamiliar now
But it's alright
a new chapter in my life
waiting for me when
I cut the ties
Track Name: Oblivious
So many times we used to try
To break through this thick wall
you hide behind
Just to find an empty shell
Of who you used to be

We all have our precious memories
Those times we will never forget
But you can’t be anybody’s savior
When you’re consumed by your own past

Living in your world
With a mind stuck on the same page
Oblivious to those who need you here today
When will it be you see what you have now
You won’t be here until we’re gone

Those countless days wasted in vain
Reaching out, expecting anything
Days of happiness and pain
They all just fade away

But now we need you more than ever
And cry for help along the way
You don’t see who cares about you
Unless they live in yesterday
Can’t count on us to pick you up
Retrieve the things that you have lost
Just understand
See through the haze of days long lost
And realized that you messed up
I hope you will

Living in your world
With a mind stuck on the same page
Oblivious to those who need you here today
When will it be you see what you have now
You won’t be here until we’re gone
Track Name: Ink's For Squids
When I was bored, out of the blue
Decided to get a tattoo
I picked up the phone
manned up and made an appointment
I didn’t know yet what to get
The only image in my head
A throbbing needle causing
oh so many nightmares
When the day had finally come
I lost it and I froze!

Ink’s for squids, but not for me
Might be a pussy, but I know that
Ink’s for squids, but not for me
I learned my lesson, now I’m sure that
Ink’s for squids, but not for me
You might look cool, but I’m a tool
I know where I went wrong, It’s not for me
Know where I went wrong

Entered the store and I sat down
The guy he smiled and grabbed my arm
He fetched his tools and
I started to feel lightheaded
Right after, passed out in the chair
Before I could make myself clear
And double-check if
he had really understood me
Then I woke up with a quote
that spelled out “Pug for life”

Ink’s for squids, but not for me
Might be a pussy, but I know that
Ink’s for squids, but not for me
I learned my lesson, now I’m sure that
Ink’s for squids, but not for me
You might look cool, but I’m a tool
I know where I went wrong, It’s not for me
Know where I went wrong
Track Name: Groundhog Day
Today I woke up with the strangest feeling I've ever known
A deja-vue just like Majora's Mask or like Groundhog Day
Relive the same moments over time and time again
what would you do?

Would you try and fix the mistakes you made yesterday
Or keep the same routine
Wake up, eat, work, sleep, repeat until the cycle starts over again

Would you make the world a better place
Would you let it all just waste away

It is not easy to turn life around all of a sudden
It takes a lot of courage to stand up and break the cycle
Figure it out and experience a brand new day
Before it's too late

Would you try and fix the mistakes you made yesterday
Or keep the same routine
Wake up, eat, work, sleep, repeat until the cycle starts over again

Would you try and fix the mistakes you made yesterday
Or keep the same routine
Wake up, eat, work, sleep, repeat until the cycle starts over again

Would you make the world a better place
Would you let it all just waste away
Track Name: Take A Hike
We don’t care if it’s cold or windy
Day or night, rain or shine all we want to do
Is to firmly grasp two poles and
Take a hike, here we go, here we go
Skiing’s lame and walking’s boring
Combine them both and you have pure awesomeness
You can even do it when you’re hung-over
Take a hike, here we go, here we go
Be prepared we’re coming your way
Nordic walking brightens up your day
Join us now if you wanna belong
Plant your sticks in the ground
People laugh when they see us passing
They’re jealous cause our buns are nice and tight
From all the outdoor action we are getting
Take a hike, here we go, here we go
It’s the way to score chicks over fifty
With matching tracksuits flapping in the wind
And our fanny packs just get them going
Take a hike, here we go here we go
Be prepared, we’re coming your way
Nordic walking brightens up your day
Join us now if you wanna belong
Plant your sticks in the ground
For this kinda fun nobody's immune
You can even practice in your living room
It will make you forget all of your woes
Take to the open road
Take to the open road
Hold your head high
through mud, grass, dirt and snow
we always will carry on
Be prepared, we’re coming your way
Nordic walking brightens up your day
Join us now if you wanna belong
Plant your sticks in the ground
For this kinda fun nobody's immune
You can even practice in your living room
It will make you forget all of your woes
Take to the open road
Track Name: Beer Me Up
Are you thinking what I think
That I need another drink
Pour it now and pour it fast
Make this wasted evening last

I need a break so I'm going out to see a show
Don't know who's playing, but I think that I don't wanna know
Cause I don't wanna dance or get into the mosh pit
Not gonna sing along when I am not into it
Tonight I'm feeling like I'm way too old for this shit
Let's head to the bar

Are you thinking what I think
That I need another drink
Pour it now and pour it fast
Make this wasted evening last
Track Name: Friendly Fire
Two’s a company they say and three’s a crowd
Well, I guess not because this is just how we roll
15 years and going strong
never having second thoughts
this bond is forged for life, that’s right
No matter where we go
Through shattered glass, land, sea or air
We’re always there and have each other’s back
Still after all these years
Whoever we might lose or gain
We know one thing, that we are bro’s for life
More than now and then we meet to see what’s up
play drinking games or just go out, who’s blacking out
forget what happened yesterday
Don’t care what other people say
We don’t give a crap anyway
Running for the cops
Carrying the drunk
Broke at the strip club
Struck out, Ripped off
We kept on going anyway
Repeat mistakes
Wouldn’t have it any other way
And once again
No matter where we go
Through shattered glass, land, sea or air
We’re always there and have each other’s back
Still after all these years
Whoever we might lose or gain
We know one thing, that we are bro’s for life
Track Name: Not Your Problem
Never do today what you can do tomorrow or next week
And when you accidentally knock up your girl
Go out for cigarettes
Run like hell from responsibility
Or it will catch up to you and bite you in the ass
Live carefree for as long as you can
Miss your deadlines and fake that you’re sick
and let somebody else deal with the mess
Don’t learn to drive no one can ask If you can pick them up
Enough ambitious people to carry the weight
And do what’s right while you are sleeping through the day
Let them decide what’s happening around the world
It’s not your problem
Don’t even frown
Let people down
Do what you want
Only look out for number one
And you’ll be fine
Run like hell from responsibility
Or it will catch up to you and bite you in the ass
Live carefree for as long as you can
And enjoy your freedom
