Track Name: why do i hate summer so much
when i went back home i wish i realized
that all my security and mental purity were not along for the ride
and, after spending one month working alone
i thought upon my return that once again i’d feel alive and in control

im in london doing everything i love so much
my girlfriend even surprised me, why do i feel so damn out of touch

i think im going back down, back down
im feeling pretty bad now, bad now
and i don’t know why, but isn’t that just the point
a summer i spent in my mind

waking up in a different place each week
trying positive hypnosis in this hopes it puts my troubled head at ease
why won’t anybody talk to me?
im craving a cigarette almost as much as some nice company

i don’t even really smoke, maybe i like the feel
of damaging your own body and pretending like it isn’t real

i think im going back down, back down
im feeling pretty bad now, bad now
and i don’t know why, but isn’t that just the point
a summer i spent in my mind
Track Name: this road is a lot busier than my last one
wake up at six, i don’t know where i am
im tired of couches, my back pain is hopeless, i just want a bed
but yours is not on offer, why’d i bother, you even warned me
guess i always had hope

i’ve always liked going far, far away
and it would’ve been nice not to be alone on a plane

but i can’t help but ask myself ‘oh why
did you give your heart away another time?’
thought we were on a similar page
guess i found that out in a hard way
using a quote from my favourite show
hoping that it’d justify how you didn’t know
now i hate that god damn episode
that’s not cool man

go back and see all your family and friends
while i find my next place to sleep and count all of my friends on one hand
we were gonna see our favourite bands, you know the ones we write about?
they played our song

people just said that it’s not the right time
a standard cliche, heard a lot in my life

but i can’t help but ask myself ‘oh why
did you give your heart away another time?’
thought we were on a similar page
guess i found that out in a hard way
using a quote from my favourite show
hoping it’d justify how you didn’t know
now i hate that god damn episode
Track Name: i hope they have eddie vedder up in heaven
empty abode the day i needed you most
a year has now passed us all by, wished you were close
only you know
about what’s come and gone
cry when im drunk, i can’t lie, even to myself

and i thought i’d tell you
cause you made me feel
so safe in your arms, but
now this pain real, where did you go
where did you go

this was the day to share all, the times that we had
instead i just felt it tear all, my heartstrings right in half
how stupid of me
to even think of you that day
i miss my dear friend, wish they hadn’t left so soon

and i thought i’d tell you
cause you made me feel
so safe in your arms, but
now this pain real, where did you go
where did you go
