Track Name: Cherrybomb
Sit around the bonfire, arms at the ready
Stomachs are heavy with mom's spaghetti
You're fine, just wait. There's more on the way
Just rest your eyes, forget your mistakes

Candles are sticks, armies betwixt
All aboard this Evil Train, it isn't a trick
The Conductor is sick so shorten the wick
and burn till it's smoldering, top it off quick

There goes the tension, what's that old expression?
"Don't bite off more than you can chew"
But when life gives you lemons, you suck them all down
because really that's all you can do

Throat full of carbon, eyes getting heavy
Fire roars steady with green confetti
Let's celebrate, there's more on the way
The feast never ends but its hell on the waist

A sickening sedation and deeply complacent
I've heard about all I can hear
A deviant treat with a cherry on top
and a horrible end to a year
Track Name: Bad Fortune
One task, one simple mission predicated larger foes
Sinister, so sharp and so slick
One miscalculation I'll surely regret this

A twist of fate, the white rabbits late, the 8 ball starts to leak
A puddle forms a pitch black hole
No light gets in and it goes so deep

Bad fortune, the cracks in California
finally give way and the ocean eats it all
Tidal waves overtake LA and its too late
yeah, they're all breathing salt
Track Name: Scrapbooking Made Easy
One face, ten billion faces
scattered in a yearbook, torn to pieces
after one long night of being by myself

One thought, a thousand follow
too numb to number them
It all seems like one big blur

One time and then its done
No one to hold, no one to love
but pinatas are now an option

One day is barely enough
to fix all the frustration I'll face in my life
so I bide my time til the feelings right
by then I've wasted life, created my own vice
Now I shake my fist in anger at myself
I've never felt so pure, the time that I've endured
has allowed me to seek home out of this shell
Track Name: Conventioneers (BNL cover)
You walked into the room
And the whole place stopped to notice
Standing next to you, I feel hopeless and you know this
I've never been ashamed of my attraction
I'd be happy if you gave me just a fraction
As we danced, I could see in your eyes
You and me as senior citizens in love

I followed your perfume out away from all the rabble
Right up to your room for a drink and travel Scrabble
You, stationed in the warm glow of the t.v.
Too patient as I'm playing L-O-V-E

And we laugh...and we laugh...and we laugh
And we have to or we'll end up in the bath

Now we're in the bath, I'm already thinking marriage
I know thats in the past it was something I'd disparage
You turned down all the lights, I lit the candles
We rolled around in robes and hotel sandals
Then you slept, and I dressed, and I left
And I guess I'll see you Monday like before

Before all the fireworks exploded
Our conversations were so loaded, innuendo flying
Now what can we say?
Have a nice day
Looks like rain today...

Now I'm in a cab, heading back to my apartment
Everything is drab, and I wish it never started
Now I'm caught up in this awkward situation
How can I just avoid a conversation?
So I wait, come in late. It'd be great
If you transferred out of state
