Track Name: Long Summer
By the seaside
In the hot sand
The cool kids drink champagne in the sun

Meanwhile
In my bedroom
I kick back, weak warm beer on my tongue

Staring at the ceiling fan, wondering why I'm not one of them
Fall asleep a little drunk, tomorrow I'll do nothing again

And it's gonna be a long, long, long, long summer
No car, no cash, no job, no school, no lover
Cut off, landlocked, out of beer
And it's too hot to go outside
But that's just summer, I couldn't write another lie

Woke up
Still fucked up
I guess I've got to try something new

Yesterday
And today
Tomorrow, oh they're all just the same

Ghosts on the radio, howling about feeling alive
Haunting the airwaves of all those spending summer inside

And it's gonna be a long, long, long, long summer
No car, no cash, no job, no school, no lover
Cut off, landlocked, out of beer
And it's too hot to go outside
But that's just summer, I couldn't write another lie

These days take so long to go by
But maybe I could figure something out tonight
But the late night his, the no replys
Where's everybody gone?
Where've they gone?

And it's gonna be a long, long, long, long summer
No car, no cash, no job, no school, no lover
Cut off, landlocked, out of beer
And it's too hot to go outside
But that's just summer, I couldn't write another lie

I couldn't write another lie
Track Name: I Need Some Sleep
Do you remember the time that we spoke in half truths, I was anybody but me
Eyes up, talk too much, fucked up on personality

I thought it's thunder but, oh it's just fun

I know what I said the other night, but what happens happens happens
And no I'm not him but that kid looks just like Lou Reed

I thought it's thunder but, oh it's just fun

Life seems so unreal these days
I can't get myself to break away
The night is slipping through my hands
I won't get this chance to try again

I guess I say what I'm supposed to sometimes, if it's not right I walk about.
And do what I need to, but it's the end of all.

I thought it's thunder but, oh it's just fun

Life seems so unreal these days
I can't get myself to break away
The night is slipping through my hands
I won't get this chance to try again
Track Name: Whatever This Is
It all happened in a time between nostalgia and now,
Kept it casual
He knew just what she had in mind, said it's fine,
Didn't have to lie

Things sometimes get a little strange,
That just means that's it time for a change

Couldn't stop, couldn't quit, that made it worse
Did his best to fall off the face of the earth
Thanks for using me he said, but you make me feel like the living dead
Oh who could understand, whatever this is

Coming over much too late, to be thinking straight,
It couldn't wait
She said you can't trust in all your memories,
It wasn't me

Sometimes these things get a little strange,
That just means that it's time for a change

Couldn't stop, couldn't quit, that made it worse
Did his best to fall off the face of the earth
Thanks for using me he said, but you make me feel like the living dead
Oh who could understand, whatever this is
