Track Name: Your Cursed Name
I heard the news today, you died
All of your systems have been fried

I've got mozzarella dreams in East Bay hardcore scenes
They are the ill-fitting sweaters that I've come to know

She'll never know how hard I tried
Searching all day and night

I've got the watch from the antique shop
It tells me when I'm coming to town
The American Legal System's got me down

You've lost direction, you've passed your peak
But all I've seen is das and weak

Just think of where we'll go
I'll just leave you alone
Track Name: Progress In-Action
I sat between what was right and what was right
I'll take your hand, throw it up so high
'cause I know you're fed up with my so-called life

But I tried

It's not right for me to say what is right
It's probably wrong anyway, but I feel like I lie
I lie all the time

I took you back up to the fence where I laid and drew
It felt like we never grew apart into pieces but just into
What I call where we fall

It's not right for me to say what is right
It's probably wrong anyway, but I feel like I lie
I lie all the time

So trust me, oh baby, I'll hurt you but not on purpose
And maybe then you'll see
I'm so much more than worthless

We've drowned this thing down so much
There's no point anymore

What I feel is what I know
So tell me why I'm feeling low
On my last legs you amputate
It's nice to see that you are glad
But when you are, I'm always bad
Like I've got nothing on my plate

It's got to be fate getting in my way
It's got to be you getting to me
Track Name: Heartbreak With Many Names
Love me like you did last Monday
On the cold beach along the Great Highway
Where we sat on concrete walls that cover Beach Chalet

Love me like you did last August
When we wrote things back and forth to each other
Like there was no tomorrow, and then next day we broke up

It's not that I'm trying to feel alienated but
You put me on hold, you put me on restock
You had me on back order with the worst
And guess what? It's your fault that I've got a mouthful of words I can't understand

Hold me like you did last winter
At the pet store across from San Mateo
Where you said I wasn't like the rest, but I still felt 15th best

It's not that I'm trying to ruin your whole life but
You put me on hold, you put me on restock
You had me on back order with the worst
And guess what? It's your fault that I've got a mouthful of words I can't understand

So what am I gonna do to you?
I'm feeling violent like you do
You're perfect like you were back then
I'll never be the same again

So love me like you did whenever
When you broke me with words from a letter
And it hurt so bad

So what am I gonna do to you?
I'm feeling violent like you do
You're perfect like you were back then
I'll never be the same again
