Track Name: God's An Atheist
I've never said goodbye in all of my life
and I realized last night that I'm never gonna die
we'll pound on our guitars til we break our hands
and figure out what it means to really be a man
we don't believe in anything
will you remember me
if this all fucks up
and I let you all fall off
when the world explodes
and I've turned to bones
will you remember me
and what we've made together
we don't believe in anything.
Track Name: Wild Turkey
don't be a bummer
we're having a real good time
don't know these people
but they're alright

and you shouldn't have left so soon
because you missed it coming
and I shouldn't have let you go
because we could have had kids

don't need your seat belt
we're not going too far
there's no cops around here
so get yourself in my car

this party's overrated
let's keep our arms crossed
who's gonna drive my friends home
i'm too drunk
Track Name: Rex Manning Day
wrecking a plane and flying out
this cities down and out
with a lack of community
keep to yourself
the world's a better place
when you don't know the people in it

how's the weather up there?

can't find a reason to let them know
its alright, let me in

and one day you're gonna be sitting by yourself
watching tv, wondering what happened to your life
and your gonna think, did I leave my friends?
or did they leave me?
maybe you didn't listen
maybe you were too stubborn to care
but none of that matters anyway
because everything's just perfect
and we're still here.
Track Name: Jamboy's Revenge
haven't seen a face that i recognize in such a long time
we hide behind what we think is right
is it modern life that makes us lie or is it what's inside
i can't decide, will i ever decide?

they won't sing our songs until we're dead

they've lost control everybody knows
it's all a joke, everything's a joke
and if you knew what i know
you'd probably choke, they would let you choke

fuck your friends, fuck your life

let's all die before we suck
at everything we've ever done
have you had enough of us

they won't sing our songs until we're dead
