Track Name: Don't Date a Realist
One time this girl told me, "We were meant for each other." I said, "Darling that's ridiculous, nothing's meant for anything. I love you now, but someday that won't be true.

And never have I felt so bad to be so Goddamn right, cause she looked me in the eyes, and she left me that night.

The next girl that I got, well she was the best I ever had. We did everything together. She was so kind, so nice. So good to me. We cooked vegan things, we were gonna move in.

But then I fucked that up, like I fuck everything up. And now she doesn't wanna talk to me, talk to me anymore.

It seems like there's a growing trend of people wanting to be my friend, then them realizing what a dick I am. Those aren't jokes I'm just an asshole, those aren't jokes I'm just an asshole!

Maybe one day I'll learn how to be a good person. Ha-ha! Yeah right.
Track Name: That one about the Van
Hey man do you wanna go out tonight? We can take your really fuckin' awesome van up to the bend and pretend our homes aren't as shitty as they are.

I can bring my guitar again, even though I only know 6 chords and you and I can't sing a note. That's okay, its enough to yell about these stupid fucking problems that won't matter ten months from now. And I know my house is only five miles away, but it seems so far when I can't hear them yell about all these pointless little things that I never understood. So...

Hey man do you wanna go out tonight? We can take your really fuckin' awesome van up to the bend and pretend our homes aren't as shitty as they are.

Are you ready to think about all these mistakes we made? Let's write them in this notebook. And when we run out of room and the pages are black, well start writing in white ink. I think we think too much about the present and past and that the future can't come too fast. And that these months move too slow. I wanna go. So...

Hey man do you wanna go out tonight? We can take your really fuckin' awesome van up to the bend and pretend our homes aren't as shitty as they are.
Track Name: Steve 1 & Steve A
Remember that one time, you thought I got off at 9, but I got off at 7 and I had to ride my bike home alone. Or your car wouldn't start and I didn't have a ride so I wandered around and felt the chill of night.

And I thought, "The situation's kinda shitty, but the cold's invigorating." And I'm sorry if I'm busy, but I'm off building a life that might be worth creating. And I hummed to songs I wish I wrote, pretending I could sing. And I hummed to songs I wish I wrote, pretending I could sing.

Or how about when I fucked up so bad everything changed for me? I've cried more since I've lived on my own, but I'm still happy most all the time. Or how about when we realized that everything changes and we're not okay in unfamiliar phases; or how we grew up across the street from that church and car door slams woke us up on Sunday morning?

And I thought, "The situation's kinda shitty, but the cold's invigorating." And I'm sorry if I'm busy, but I'm off building a life that might be worth creating. And I hummed to songs I wish I wrote, pretending I could sing. And I hummed to songs I wish I wrote, pretending I could sing.

It's funny how we had the same parents, and we see all these things so differently. How we had the same house and the same type of food to eat. But now that house is repossessed and I don't wanna confess that we're both in the wrong here. And I was at my friend's house for far too long, but I don't wanna go home. I guess I'll just stay outside.

And I thought, "The situation's kinda shitty, but the cold's invigorating." And I'm sorry if I'm busy, but I'm off building a life that might be worth creating. And I hummed to songs I wish I wrote, pretending I could sing. And I hummed to songs I wish I wrote, pretending I could sing.
