Track Name: Artless
ARTLESS

I CAN TAKE A PICTURE OF MYSELF
AND PUT A FILTER ON, PUT A FILTER ON
I CAN MAKE A STICKER OF MY NAME
AND CALL IT STREET ART, LET’S CALL IT STREET ART

CHORUS:
I CAN MAKE A VIDEO BLOG AND IT’S AN INSTALLATION AROUND THE NATION
LOOKING CUTE WITH A FEW TATTOOS AND IT’S A REVOLUTION OF EVOLUTION
GAZE INTO THE POOL
GAZE INTO THE POOL

I CAN START A BAND WITH ALL MY FRIENDS,
WE’LL GET NEW HAIRCUTS, YOU’RE GONNA FUND US
I CAN DRESS LIKE BOWIE, KLAUS OR GRACE
AND IT’S SO BRAND NEW, IT’S SO BRAND NEW

CHORUS:
I CAN MAKE A VIDEO BLOG AND IT’S AN INSTALLATION AROUND THE NATION
LOOKING CUTE WITH A FEW TATTOOS AND IT’S A REVOLUTION OF EVOLUTION
GAZE INTO THE POOL
GAZE INTO THE POOL

PAINT MYSELF AS SUCH AN AWKWARD GEEK
AND TAKE SELF-PORTRAITS EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK
I CAN SELL MY PRIVILEGE AS PUNK
AND EVERYONE WILL LINE UP TO BUY MY JUNK

CHORUS:
I CAN MAKE A VIDEO BLOG AND IT’S AN INSTALLATION AROUND THE FUCKING NATION
LOOKING CUTE WITH A BEARD AND TATTOOS IS NOT A REVOLUTION OF EVOLUTION
GAZE INTO THE POOL
GAZE INTO THE POOL
Track Name: Homoagoraphobia
HOMOAGORAPHOBIA

WELL IT’S 10 P.M. AT THE STANDING AND MODELING BAR
WITH YOUR MUSCLES YOUR ASS LIKE A BUSSEL, BABY YOU’LL GO FAR
BUT IT’S GETTING BORING AND SO I’M EXPLORING MY OPTIONS AROUND THE ROOM
ALL THAT BUTCH STARING, OR MAYBE IT’S GLARING, A SENSE OF IMPENDING DOOM

CHORUS:
HERE COME THOSE BASIC BOYS
WITH THEIR PLAIN JEANS, PLAIN SHIRTS AND PERFECT FACES
ALL THE BETTER TO PROJECT YOUR FANTASIES ONTO DON’T YOU KNOW?
NO MESSY DETAILS, NO FRILLS TO GET IN THE WAY OH NO, NO, NO, NO

WELL YOU’RE HERE WITH US AND YOUR BOYFRIEND IS HANGING AT HOME
YOU BEND MY EAR, YOU SAY THAT I’M CUTER AND I BARELY STIFLE A GROAN
WHO GAVE THE MAPS TO ALL OF THE CHAPS WHO ARE ALREADY SPOKEN FOR?
A TRAIL OF BREADCRUMBS THAT I’M NOT AWARE OF, LEADING TO MY FRONT DOOR

CHORUS:
HERE COME THOSE BASIC BOYS
WITH THEIR PLAIN JEANS, PLAIN SHIRTS AND PERFECT FACES
ALL THE BETTER TO PROJECT YOUR FANTASIES ONTO DON’T YOU KNOW?
NO MESSY DETAILS, NO FRILLS TO GET IN THE WAY OH NO, NO, NO, NO

WELL I’M HERE ALONE AND YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THAT’S SO
I’M JUST SO FUNNY, MY HAIR AND MY FASHION REALLY SHOULD SNAG ME A BEAU
BUT THAT’S JUST THE QUESTION THAT’S ALWAYS VEXING & KEEPING ME UP AT NIGHT
IF ADAM IS RIGHT AND I’M JUST SO GOODY, THERE MUST BE SOMETHING INSIDE

CHORUS:
HERE COME THOSE BASIC BOYS
WITH THEIR PLAIN JEANS, PLAIN SHIRTS AND PERFECT FACES
ALL THE BETTER TO PROJECT YOUR FANTASIES ONTO, WE KNOW, WE KNOW
NO MESSY DETAILS, NO FRILLS TO GET IN THE WAY OH NO, NO, NO, NO
Track Name: Coyotes in the Presidio
COYOTES IN THE PRESIDIO

WE MAKE LOUND SOUNDS BUT THEY DON’T GO AWAY, UH-HUH
EATING UP OUR CITY ALL NIGHT AND DAY, UH-HUH
WE KNOW THEY’LL KEEP COMING BUT STILL WE RESIST
THERE’S ALL THESE SIGNS FOR PLACES THAT DON’T EXIST
THROUGH THE HILLS THEY CRAWL, YOU CAN HEAR THEM CALL

CHORUS:
COYOTES IN THE PRESIDIO
THERE’S NOWHERE THAT THEY CAN’T ROAM
THEY’RE GONNA EAT US OUT OF HOUSE AND HOME
COYOTES IN THE PRESIDIO

THEY CHANGE THE LANDSCAPE EVERY OTHER DAY, UH-HUH
NOT REALLY OUR DECISION IF WE GO OR STAY, UH-HUH
THEY BITE SO HARD BUT WE FIGHT BACK
THEY’VE GOT MORE MONEY THAT’S A FUCKIN’ FACT
THROUGH THE HILLS THEY CRAWL, YOU CAN HEAR THEM CALL

CHORUS:
COYOTES IN THE PRESIDIO
THERE’S NOWHERE THAT THEY CAN’T ROAM
THEY’RE GONNA DRIVE US OUT OF HOUSE AND HOME
COYOTES IN THE PRESIDIO (LET’S DANCE!)

$5,000 BIKE SHOPS! THE CONDOS GOING UP, UP, UP!
NOW THEY GOT DIVISADERO! AND THEY’LL BE COMING FOR YOU!

THEY MEET LATE AT NIGHT IN PRIVATE SPACES, UH-HUH
COVER UP THEIR FANGS WITH THE HIPPEST FACES, UH-HUH
IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW LONG YOU BEEN LIVIN’ HERE
THEY GOT A PALTRY SUM FOR ALL YOU HOLD DEAR
THROUGH THE HILLS THEY CRAWL, THEY COULD DEVOUR US ALL

COYOTES IN THE PRESIDIO
C-O-Y-O-TES IN THE PRESIDIO
THERE’S NOWHERE THAT THEY CAN’T ROAM
WE’RE GONNA FIGHT ‘EM FOR OUR HOUSE AND HOME
COYOTES IN THE PRESIDIO
Track Name: Forty
FORTY

OH, THE LONELINESS, THE LONELINESS IT NEVER FADES
IT JUST MAGNIFIES, INTENSIFIES WITH AGE
SO THE BEST THING THAT YOU CAN DO IS FILL UP YOUR DAYS
AND JUST GIVE UP THE NIGHTS, THEY ALWAYS END THE SAME

CHORUS:
AND IT’S HARD, SO HARD, TO SAY WHAT YOU’VE BEEN MISSING
AND IT’S EASIER WHEN YOU KEEP DISMISSING
THE ICE THAT’S SPREADING THROUGH YOUR CHEST
THE ACHE THAT’S DOING IT’S LEVEL BEST TO BREAK YOUR HEART

OH, THE LIGHT IS DAWNING, YOU HOPE THERE’S SUN TODAY
TURN THE MUSIC UP BECAUSE IT ALWAYS SAVES
AND PUT YOUR HEADPHONES ON AND WALK ALL OVER TOWN
AND THEN CALL YOUR FRIENDS AND SEE WHO’S STILL AROUND

CHORUS:
AND IT’S HARD, SO HARD, TO SAY WHAT YOU’VE BEEN MISSING
AND IT’S EASIER WHEN YOU KEEP DISMISSING
THE ICE THAT’S SPREADING THROUGH YOUR CHEST
THE ACHE THAT’S DOING IT’S LEVEL BEST TO BREAK YOUR HEART


OH, THE LONELINESS, THE LONELINESS IT NEVER FADES
IT JUST MAGNIFIES, INTENSIFIES WITH AGE
SO THE BEST THING THAT YOU CAN DO IS FILL UP YOUR DAYS
AND JUST GIVE UP THE NIGHTS, THEY ALWAYS END THE SAME, THE SAME, THE SAME

CHORUS:
AND IT’S HARD, SO HARD, I KNOW JUST WHAT I’M MISSING MISSING
AND IT’S EASIER WHEN I KEEP DISMISSING
THE ICE THAT’S SPREADING THROUGH MY CHEST
THE ACHE THAT’S DOING IT’S LEVEL BEST TO BREAK MY HEART
Track Name: Abe
ABE

DID YOU WAKE UP HAPPY TODAY?
A FAINT SMILE ACROSS YOUR FACE?
OR DID THE GRAY SKIES HOLD YOU DOWN?
I KNOW WHAT WINTER’S LIKE IN YOUR TOWN

CHORUS:
ABE, IT DOESN’T MATTER NOW
I JUST WANNA SEE YOU, I JUST WANNA HANG OUT
ABE, IT’S OKAY NOW
I JUST WANNA SEE YOU, I JUST WANNA HANG OUT

10 YEARS IS FAR TOO LONG
I WANNA HEAR YOUR LATEST SONG
AND DID YOU QUIT THOSE SMOKES FOR GOOD?
AND TUNE YOUR GUITAR LIKE YOU KNOW YOU SHOULD?

CHORUS:
ABE, IT DOESN’T MATTER NOW
I JUST WANNA SEE YOU, I JUST WANNA HANG OUT
ABE, IT’S OKAY NOW
I JUST WANNA SEE YOU, I JUST WANNA HANG OUT

DO YOU REMEMBER OUR FIRST KISS?
ON MY OLD COUCH WHILE THE HEATER HISSED
AND WE WERE DOOMED RIGHT FROM THE START
BUT WE HAD SO MUCH FUN IN THE DARK

CHORUS:
ABE, IT DOESN’T MATTER NOW
I JUST WANNA SEE YOU, I JUST WANNA HANG OUT
ABE, WE’RE OKAY NOW
I JUST WANNA SEE YOU, I JUST WANNA HANG OUT
Track Name: Not Enough
NOT ENOUGH

IT’S FUNNY HOW YOU ALWAYS WANT MORE
I’M WATCHING YOU GROW AND YOU’RE WATCHING ME SHRINK
YOU SUCK AND YOU SUCK TIL YOU DRAIN ME RIGHT DOWN TO THE CORE
UH-UH-UH

THIS WORLD WAS MY HOME TIL YOU CAME ALONG
YOU MOVE AND YOU SHAKE AND YOU TAKE AND YOU TAKE
I’M WAITING AROUND TO SING MY LITTLE PART OF YOUR SONG

CHORUS:
IT’S NOT ENOUGH, DON’T CALL IT LOVE
IT’S NOT ENOUGH, DON’T CALL IT LOVE, NO

LET’S GET THE WHOLE WORLD TO PROP YOU UP
WE GATHER AROUND AS THE CRISIS RESOUNDS
NO SACRIFICE IS ENOUGH TO SAVE YOUR LIFE
UH-UH-UH

WHEN ONE OF US WINS IT’S ALWAYS YOUR LOSS
ONLY SEE TREES WHEN YOU’RE DOWN ON YOUR KNEES
ISN’T IT PLAIN, YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE WHO FEELS PAIN

CHORUS:
IT’S NOT ENOUGH, DON’T CALL IT LOVE
IT’S NOT ENOUGH, DON’T CALL IT LOVE

I JUST WANNA SEE YOU STAND ON YOUR OWN SOMETIME
I JUST WANNA WALK BEHIND YOU NOT TWENTY PACES BEHIND
OH, COULD I LEAN ON YOU EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE?
AND NOT BE DROWNED OUT BY YOUR OVERWHELMING FRIGHT?
Track Name: Window
WINDOW

IN THE BACK ROOM OF YOUR LAUNDERETTE
OR IN YOUR CRAMPED MANHATTAN PAD
IN THE BOATHOUSE WHERE I WAIT AND WAIT
FOR THAT SUMMER WE NEVER HAD

CHORUS:
CLIMB UP TO MY WINDOW
CLIMB THE LADDER TO MY WINDOW
STARING AT THE SEA, SPINNING ALL AROUND ME
SO LET’S PICK A PLACE AND WE’LL FLY AWAY

POUR THE CHAMPAGNE FROM YOUR MOUTH TO MINE
RECREATE THE PERFECT CINEMATIC KISS
CATCH ME WHEN I’M FALLING FAST ASLEEP
SUCK THE POISON OUT LIKE THIS

CHORUS:
CLIMB UP TO MY WINDOW
CLIMB THE LADDER TO MY WINDOW
STARING AT THE SEA, SPINNING ALL AROUND ME
SO LET’S PICK A PLACE AND WE’LL FLY AWAY

SITTING ON THE FRONT STEPS YOU NAME THE STARS
DARK HAIR SHINES AGAINST THE BLACK
WE’RE NAKED AT THE QUARRY, IN THE MOONLIGHT
AND YOU’RE NEVER COMING BACK

CHORUS:
CLIMB UP TO MY WINDOW
CLIMB THE LADDER TO MY WINDOW
STARING AT THE SEA, SPINNING ALL AROUND ME
SO LET’S PICK A PLACE AND WE’LL FLY AWAY
