Track Name: Upside Down From Here (Atom & His Package cover)
From Antartica to the polar caps
Try to fit a big orb on a little flat map
I'm not going to drive this time
I love green land when it's Africa's size
North is not up and East is not right
Except for MIlwaukee, Wisconsin that night
I know what it feels like to be upside down from here.

Here is my arm and it waves like a flag
That reminds me that I have 2 arms and a map.

So look at a map and learn where you live at
I know what it feels like to be upside down from here.
And if we met halfway in the middle of the planet, would we just sit there and spin?
Track Name: Salt (Peabodys cover)
Five years ago
The sun was so bright
And looking back has burned my eyes
I tried to move on
But my life is like a house of cards
That I can't stop the wind from blowing down
I see a young man
In an old photograph
He looks like me
But is so more alive
There's a girl beside him
She was his world
Then that world just got up and left
There's a whole in my head
Her exit wound scar
Can't stop these thoughts from tumbling out
Onto this page, into these songs
Been looking over my shoulder
Too long
I'm a pillar of salt
I wish I could leave those people alone
But their image is so beautiful
The people we were
How fragile their world
The pieces are tearing up my head
Track Name: Ramones T-Shirt (Hextalls cover)
Thought you were hot when I saw you with the t-shirt
What the fuck is Panic! at the Disco
Doesn't matter cause I really think I like you

I got nervous when we went back to your place
I'm not good at making out with the girls, dude
Doesn't matter when you're sitting on my face now

I shuffled through your iPod while you were taking a piss
AFI what the fuck is this?
I'm going to have to beat you to death with a goddamn hammer

You make me sick
I can't believe I'm going down on you

When you took me to your room for the new tattoo
Unveil and show. What do you know?
You've got Good Charlotte on your belly in gangster letters

Shut up and put on my Ramones t-shirt
Shut up and put on my Hextalls t-shirt
I'm trying to love you
It's the only way I'll love you
It's the only way that I can love you now
Track Name: About You Now (Miranda Cosgrove cover)
Maybe I'm wrong, you decide
Should've been strong, yeah I lied
Nobody gets me like...you

Couldn't keep hold of you then
How could I know what you meant?
There was nothing to compare to

There's a mountain between us
But there's one thing I'm sure of
That I know how I feel about you

Can we bring yesterday back around?
Cause I know how I feel about you now
I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down
But I know how I feel about you now

All that it takes, one more chance
Don't let our next kiss be our last
I'm out of my mind, just to show you

I know everything changes
I don't care where it takes us
Cause I know how I feel about you

Can we bring yesterday back around?
Cause I know how I feel about you now
I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down
But I know how I feel about you now

Not a day, pass me by
Not a day, pass me by
When I don't think about you
And there's no moving on
Cause I know you're the one
And I can't be without you
Track Name: This Year (Mountain Goats cover)
I broke free on a saturday morning
I put the pedal to the floor
headed north on mills avenue
and listened to the engine roar

my broken house behind me
and good things ahead
a girl named Cathy wants a little of my time
six cylinders underneath the hood crashing and kicking
aha! listen to the engine whine

i am going to make it through this year if it kills me
i am going to make it though this year if it kills me

i played video games in a drunken haze
i was seventeen years young
hurt my knuckles punching the machines
the taste of scotch rich on my tongue

and then Cathy showed up and we hung out
trading swigs from a bottle
all bitter and clean locking eyes holding hands
twin high maintenance machines

i am going to make it through this year if it kills me
i am going to make it though this year if it kills me

i drove home in the Califonia dusk
i could feel the alcahol inside of me hum
pictured the look on my stepfather's face
ready for the bad things to come

i down shifted as i pulled into the driveway
the motor screaming out stuck in second gear
the scene ends badly as you might imagine
in a cavalcade of anger and fear

there will be feasting and dancing in Jerusalem next year
i am going to make it through this year if it kills me
i am going to make it though this year if it kills me
