Track Name: Wondering Why
You have no idea

How I really feel about you

You may just think that I'm a friend

But I don't think that's true



I love your smile and your hair

I want to take you here and there

Can I hold you all day long

I promise that nothing will go wrong



Will you let me know

What is wrong with me

There are so many things about you

That only I can see



I love you more

Than you'll ever know

You think that he's the perfect one

But how much love does he show?



I love your smile and your hair

I want to take you here and there

Can I hold you all day long

I promise that nothing will go wrong



I'm losing my mind

Will you pick up my call

I'm about to bash my head

Into the nearest wall



I hope to god one day you learn

About the pain that makes me burn

My life is all torn up in pieces

And my self esteem decreases

Why do I suck so bad

Why the hell must I be sad

So when will you ever see

All this pain it's causing me



I loved your smile and your hair

I wanted to take you here and there

I would've held you till we died

Instead you left me wondering why
Track Name: Towson, Maryland
Something about a four hour drive
From Middletown New York, to where I reside
Located in the heart of Baltimore County
A pocket full of memories of you and me

Population five one seven ninety three
It's the only place that I want to be
Take me where everything isn't bland
Welcome to Towson Maryland

I met my first love at Towson High
Class of '94, we never said goodbye
It's been a long bumpy road since we last met
Never speaking to you is what I regret

Population five one seven ninety three
It's the only place that I want to be
Take me where everything isn't bland
Welcome to Towson Maryland

It's been a while since I've been home
Twenty five years living on my own
I'll never regret a single day
When everything was okay

We gotta face the fact that nothing goes right
People take their lives to get out of your sight
You can ruin a life just by sitting there
And when you hear that they're gone, it's something you can't bear

Population five one seven ninety three
It's the only place that I want to be
Take me where everything isn't bland
Welcome to Towson Maryland

Population five one seven ninety three
I don't even know where I want to be
Take me where we first held hands
Welcome to Towson Maryland

Population five one seven ninety two
I don't want to do anything with you
Take me where everything isn't bland
Get me the fuck out of Towson Maryland
Track Name: About A Graphing Calculator
I had a dream last night
Not about any sheep or stars
A very magical wonderful dream
About a graphing calculator

Oh the places you can go
When you're out of your head
And into your mind
Oh you'll never want to go
When you're free at last
Away from your past

I saw the Berlin Wall
I got to see it fall
Watching the Beatles in '64
Back when they were considered hardcore

It was great to sit and watch
All the moments I've missed
When I didn't exist

Oh the places you can go
When you're out of your head
And into your mind
Oh you'll never want to go
When you're free at last
Away from your past

I'll replay memories that I missed
Back when happiness existed
Times when you said you loved me
Here I'll spend eternity

With my graphing calculator
I can live up the past
Or gaze into the future
I'll have a blast
Forgetting the present
That'll never last

I can't believe I'm gonna live in the past
I'm gonna fix all my mistakes
I'm living a dream that I'll never have
Oh! I have what it takes to screw with time

Oh the places you can go
When you're out of your head
And into your mind
Oh you'll never want to go
When you're free at last
Away from your past

Oh the places you can go
With a graphing calculator time machine
Track Name: I Will Say When
Kickin' me out of your country

Leave me on the streets

No food no clothes no nothing to eat

Taking my rights

Kicking me down

As if I was a worthless peasant

Now I gotta fend for myself

Brace for attack


This is war

It's what you're asking for

This is my style

Stick with your method of assault

I am better than you'll ever be

Nothing's gonna hurt me

Shove those lies down your throat

Before I burn you down



Worse than Confederation

Headlines around the world

All about you corrupted bastards

Keep your bears

I'll take my snare

I'll move onto my own foundation

I've got my own people

You better start running


This is war

It's what you're asking for

This is my style

Stick with your method of assault

I am better than you'll ever be

Nothing's gonna hurt me

Shove those lies down your throat

Before I burn you down



Before I burn you down
Before I burn your fucking country down
Track Name: Lodge
I didn't know what time it was

I wish I knew what time it was

You can't keep track of what to do
When you feel completely blue

You'll fall in love at first sight
You witness tons and tons of fights
Sleeping on your leather bed
Many tears you will shed

You'll want to get out of here
You'll want an easy way out
The secret is to live it up
Having fun is what it's all about

Don't think too much of missing home
Here you aren't free to roam
You got yourself in here
Your happiness will reappear

It's going to get better man
You're already part of the clan
You'll make it through this bloody mess
Of tears and hate and all your stress

You'll want to get out of here
You'll want an easy way out
The secret is to live it up
Having fun is what it's all about

I didn't know what time it was
Now I know what time it is
When you're free to run away
You might be coming back some day

You'll want to get out of here
You'll want an easy way out
The secret is to live it up
Having fun is what it's all about
Track Name: For Someone
If I could, I would sing to you every night
I would be there by your side in the light

I'll sing to you with my terrible voice

So you can go dream and rejoice


I'll sing a song for you

A tiny improvised tune
Deep from the depths of my heart
Adapted from shooting stars



You dream of sailing in a boat

Fishing for the perfect one

The one that'll love you more

I washed up on the shore


I'll sing a song for you

A tiny improvised tune
Deep from the depths of my heart
Adapted from shooting stars

I dream of things that will never be

Specifically, dreams of you and me

How I love you unconditionally

And how you speak so beautifully

I'll never recover from this pain

I'm broken beyond repair, I'm insane
I can't forget all those memories
Because you have the keys


To my heart


I'll sing a song for you

A tiny improvised tune
Deep from the depths of my heart
Adapted from shooting stars


Just for you

Track Name: Grand Old Time (in Secaucus!)
Secaucus, there's no place like home

Secaucus, living on my own

Secaucus, friendly and fun

Secaucus



Secaucus, hanging with my buds

Secaucus, Lucky and Biskit

Secaucus, sending letters and back

Secaucus

Living in a town full of animals
No worries or cares, keep saving up bells

Just having a grand old time in Secaucus



Secaucus, fishing without a doubt

Secaucus, Blathers likes to eat them up

Secaucus, paying off your house
Secaucus



Secaucus, shovel into a rock

Secaucus, Phyllis is a stupid duck
Secaucus, Nook buys fruit from you

Secaucus


Living in a town full of animals
No worries or cares, keep saving up bells

Just having a grand old time in Secaucus

The outside world is scary and strange

No place to hide from all the violence
Except for one happy place in my heart

That I call

Secaucus, don't reset your game

Secaucus, KK on Saturday

Secaucus, Wisp will get you at night

Secaucus

Secaucus, unconditional love

Secaucus, no hunger or greed
Secaucus, the perfect place for me

Secaucus

Living in a town full of animals
No worries or cares, keep saving up bells

Just having a grand old time in Secaucus



Having loads of fun in Secaucus

Catching all the bugs in Secaucus

Going to the city from Secaucus

Falling in the pitfalls in Secaucus



Hitting Daisy in Secaucus (Secaucus, there's no place like home
)
No more NES in Secaucus (Secaucus, Lucky and Biskit)
Growing apples in Secaucus (Secaucus, unconditional love)
Happiness resides in Secaucus (Secaucus)

Tortimer's gonna die in Secaucus (Secaucus, fishing without a doubt)
Building all the bridges in Secaucus (Secaucus, Phyllis is a stupid duck)
No worries or fears in Secaucus (Secaucus, the perfect place for me)
Damn good times in Secaucus (Secaucus)
Track Name: I Can't Even Verbalize How Happy I Am That You're In My Life, You Know. <3
The day I met you, I loved you
You've started my life anew
I've never felt so happy before
Just because it's you I adore

I never thought I'd feel this way
There's just so much that I can say
And what I've shown is not enough
You wouldn't even know
Words can't describe how I love you but
Fifteen words will tell you how
I can't even verbalize how happy I am that you're in my life, you know.

You're beautiful and perfect in my eyes
I can tell that you're an angel in disguise
If I could have anybody in the world
I'd still choose you over any other girl

I never thought I'd feel this way
There's just so much that I can say
And what I've shown is not enough
You wouldn't even know
Words can't describe how I love you but
Fifteen words will tell you how
I can't even verbalize how happy I am that you're in my life, you know.

I miss you so
More than you'll ever know
I love your pretty face
Nothing I could replace

I love you girl
Your eyes light up like pearls
You never leave my mind
Without you I'd be blind

Your smile brightens up my year
I really wish that you were here
You need to know my love is real
I want to tell you how I feel

With a clarinet!
Alto saxophone!
Hot Cha!

I never thought I'd feel this way
There's just so much that I can say
And what I've shown is not enough
You wouldn't even know
Words can't describe how I love you but
Fifteen words will tell you how
I can't even verbalize how happy I am that you're in my life, you know.

I miss you so
I love you so
I'll always will
I feel you'll never know

Extraordinary and unique
You fucking little stupid geek
I think about you day and night
But this is all I can write

I fucking hate your style and guts
You deserve a big fat pair of nuts
I don't want to see you anymore
You eloquent fiesty bitchy whore

I hate you, I hate you
I hate you, I hate you
I hate you, I hate you
I hate you hate you I fucking hate you

I'm so happy that you're not in my life anymore, you know.
