Track Name: Insufficient Funds
Been throwing drugs at the clock
And drugs cost money so I really really shouldn't be shocked
I bet it all adds up
It probably all adds up, sadly

I never do a "balance inquiry"
I turn my head and crumple the receipt
I bet there's something wrong with this machine
Based on my financial expertise

Isn't that funny?
I thought I had a lot more money
I've got insufficient funds
Track Name: Pushing Everyone Away
When I say I’m a perfectionist
I mean I’m lazy and terrified
When I say that I am anxious
I mean I’m sober enough to drive
When I’m feeling this
Powerless
I want you to hate me
the way I hate myself

I’m pushing everyone away
I’m pushing everyone away
No one should care if I’m okay
Since I’m pushing everyone away

When I blame it on the timing
But it's really cuz the feelings aren't there
When I make it like my guard is up but I've given up and do not even care
The more you try
The more I hide
I think I'm contagious
And I don't want to spread my sorrow

I’m pushing everyone away
I’m pushing everyone away
No one should care if I’m okay
Since I’m pushing everyone away

Every now and then I try to force myself to care
Find myself another passionate weekend-long affair
I understand my lack of normal feelings makes you scared
I don't want to pretend that this is fair

I’m pushing everyone yes
I’m pushing everyone yes
I'm pushing everyone away
I’m pushing everyone away
No one should care if I’m okay
Since I’m pushing everyone away
Track Name: Hair of the Dog
Tomorrow, tomorrow
I'm quitting tomorrow
I need to get through today

Tomorrow, tomorrow
It's never tomorrow
It's always a day away
Track Name: Forget to Run
Bored enough to grab a cop's gun
Running out of things to do for fun
Acting so detached from everyone
Even new things feel redundant
And mundane
I'm so spoiled it's insane
But I can't program my brain
To be more easily entertained

So for now
I'm shutting it down
I'm shutting it down
All I can do
For my brain right now
Is shut it down

Trying to figure out
A way to distract myself
But I'm not sure what from
Trying to kill the time
Until I get to the finish line
While I forget to run

Every other day I wanna quit
Like I had my big idea and that was it
I can't think of any decent messages
Or find the syllables and synonyms that fit
In a phrase
That actually needs to be conveyed
That could cause some kind of change
That no one's already said in a cooler way

I'm a fool
Instead of making you proud,
I'm letting you down
Standing in place like a fool right now,
I'm letting you down

Trying to figure out
A way to distract myself
But I'm not sure what from
Trying to kill the time
Until I get to the finish line
While I forget to run

I keep in mind
That if I close my eyes
I won't know what I'm missing
So I'm walking blind
I will not find
Whatever it is I should be looking for

Trying to figure out
A way to distract myself
But I'm not sure what from
Trying to kill the time
Until I get to the finish line
While I forget to run
Track Name: My Local Deli
I think they know my name here
I use up all my shame here
I wonder how pathetic I appear
At least I'm not on methamphetamines, ya see
Unlike the crew that's buying lottery at 3
in the morning
at my local deli

I always pay in quarters
I think the owner's daughter
Thinks that what I'm ordering is weird
At least I'm not a total pervert creep, ya see
Unlike the bros buying baconeggandcheese
At 3
In the morning at my local deli

At least I'd never try armed robbery
Ya see, that place got held up twice in one week
It wasn't me
I would never hurt my local deli

I'm setting the bar so low
Trying to just pass go
But I'll probably just pass out on your property
I am like my home
An island all alone
Famously forgotten destiny
Oh how much potential is buried
But maybe that's our whole identity
Maybe we're a piece the puzzle needs
