Track Name: Eephus
i'm only lonely why don't you talk to me
i want you i want you please
not much for praying but it's appropriate
to get down onto my knees

i'd love to silence you

you smile at me i can only turn away
can't think straight can't think straight no
i am growing i'm growing out of it
i have no time to waste

i'd love to silence you

i'm only lonely
i know you're lonely too

i'd love to silence you
Track Name: Paragraphs About Empty Hallways
i watch you far away for proof
i want you to tell me the truth
when we just sit on our hands
when we just sit on our hands
my aching prose means nothing
bad behavior sure needs watching
when we just chew on our hands
when we just chew on our hands

meanwhile you have forgot me
ask me how i am supposed to be
when i am shaking your hand
when i am shaking your hand
collapsing when you're faded
everything i appreciated
when you are holding my hand
when you are holding my hand

i watch you far away for proof
i want you to tell me the truth
when we just sit on our hands
when we just sit on our hands
my aching prose means nothing
bad behavior sure needs watching
when we just chew on our hands
when we just chew on our hands

paragraphs about empty hallways
i will be with you always
Track Name: Uppercut Uppercut
look me in the face and hit me with an
uppercut uppercut
take all my money and say it's
not enough not enough
run away before i can
catch you catch you
got a couple bruises maybe
one or two one or two

and now i'm walking you as
fast as i can
but don't ever say that
say that i ran
i don't want to fight with you
at least not right now
but i'll pay you back and i will
do it somehow

so i see you and i
blow smoke at you
i don't care if it's wrong
i cannot lose
my problem with you goes
deeper deeper
well then it's a good thing i'm
not a heavy sleeper

look in the mirror
Track Name: Boosted
i'm watching for you
i'm watching for your car because
i need a lift to get home
i need a lift to get home
i'm watching for you
i'm waiting for your hands to
boost me up to get over the fence
boost me up to get over the fence

i'm watching for you
i'm waiting for two quarters to
drop into my greedy open hands
drop into my greedy open hands
i need to call you
i need to call you so i can
tell you that i am doing fine
tell you that i am doing fine

and i'll go to college
and i'll go and leave you but i
say it's for the better we know that
say it's for the better we know that
but i'll be back soon
i'll be back and we can
celebrate when it's christmastime
celebrate when it's christmastime

you hate that i smoke
and you don't always get my jokes but
we have some things we can laugh at
we have some things we can laugh at
and i'll buy the presents
buy presents for anniversaries
it's the least that i could do for
the two rocks i have always known
