Track Name: East Bay Breeze
27 blocks away to the liquor store
Never thought in my wildest dreams
You'd be sitting right next to me
Drinking a 40 on some stranger's floor
Like this bottle of Mickey's
I'm shaking, sweating, slurring nervously
Yet your smile puts my mind at ease

And now it's getting close to 4AM
I don't wanna go to sleep
As long as you're in sight, I don't wanna fucking blink
So we step out to the wet cement
You're enamored by the palm trees, lack of humidity and the cool East Bay breeze
I wish you just felt that way about me

'cause tonight, I'll forget all my problems, when I look in your eyes
I'm fine, even if for a moment, as long as you're by my side
Tonight, I'll forget all my problems, when I look in your eyes
I'm fine, even if for a moment, as long as you're by my side
You're by my side
Track Name: Pointless
I'm captivated, by your Midwestern accent
Talking 'bout skating, you seemed so damn fearless
Then about Star Wars, don't know where the time went
"Radical! Radical!" Oh shit, I got this

If only you weren't leaving tomorrow
I'd ask if you wanna watch the stars glow
Why put ourselves through this?
We both know it's pointless
I wish that there could be another way

Now, 3 months later, in your van riding shotgun
It still feels like Summer, and yeah, I'm still pretty drunk
We're sleeping on cold floors, concrete's burning outdoors
Wake up now! Wake up now! This weekend's not over

If only you weren't leaving tomorrow
I'd ask if you wanna watch the stars glow
Why put ourselves through this?
We both know it's pointless
I wish that there could be another way
Track Name: Cincinnati Agony
Caught glimpse of my future on a beer coozie
It's telling me that I'm real bad with my money

What am I supposed to say?
If I'm still alive, I can't complain
'cause I'm trading in this week's paycheck
For soon-recycled cans and bottles
Now I'm getting in to trouble, once again!

I got blackout drunk and threw myself down Nick's basement
Woke up with a fucked up back, pissed pants and a bloody head

What am I supposed to say?
I'm still alive, so I can't complain
'cause I'm trading in this week's paycheck
For soon-recycled cans and bottles
Now I"m getting in to trouble, once again!

It's a small world, alcohol
And it feels worse after the fall
I'm left here with weak knees, so all I can do is crawl
Until I hit a brick fucking wall
Track Name: Westbound Sigh
I got my first tattoo today
It's got the first letter of your name
I hope you don't read too much into it
It's for a song that got me through
Desperate nights stuck inside my room
Feeling like I was a worthless piece of shit

The boroughs of New York City
Still don't make much sense to me
Like my thoughts, I'm isolated and lost
Went to this Greenpoint record store
To recharge my phone and maybe more
Walked through the stacks and saw a message from god*

The East River, baby, your rooftop
4 cans of beer, a couple of twist-offs (a piece)
We're always up 'til 4AM
You woke up early to call me a cab

So I leave you with this Insomniac LP
and the hope that you'll think of me
When Westbound Sign comes on

*In reference to "God Told Me To Skin You Alive" by Winston Smith, it's better known as the cover art for Green Day's Insomniac. Yeah, I'm a fucking nerd.
