John Belmont Clean guitars, great singing, and good mixing really carries these odd rhymeless verses. Everything really comes together here. Hey Kian! Knew I was going to buy it when I saw you in the credits. Favorite track: Nicotine.

Track Name: Goodbye Ike
I've been drawing lines in the sand,
In my head
I'm just trying to get some things straight
With you instead

I know you, you know me

I don't know what to do with my hands
When you're speaking
I've been waiting for my whole life
For something like this

I know you, you know me

Today I found myself.
Track Name: Abbey Sounds
You are two queens
that taught me I'm always learning
how to treat every woman equal to me.

And you saw through
my broken smile told me how
I'm never alone with problems no one knows.

Your poetry showed me
Love is not a simple thing it's empathy and all you need
and I hope you enjoy that onion panini!

And this house is all I knew
and it wont leave with you.
So I wish the best for you

You are always true
and always there when nobody cared
and god only knows I'll do the same for you.

I'll miss our talks over cheap sushi
when everyone was studying we got up and sang karaoke
and on that back porch you helped me countlessly to see that

this house is all I knew
and it wont leave with you.
So I wish the best for you.

I love you two.
Track Name: Cauliflower Melon
We weren't in love with each other.
We just couldn't stand Being lonesome,
and you needed some control in your life.

You got me to try things I probably should have not.
You treated me like a toy you couldn't lose,
and I wouldn't have changed a thing about it.

You made
my life worse
for the better

I made
your heart break,
and I'm sorry.

You taught me to sing in harmonies
this is my thanks and apology
for not being able to stick around for you.

I am
alone
for the better

You are
with her
and happier
Track Name: Nicotine
I can feel my lungs getting black.
I'm getting numb to everything,
but I know being numb won't change a thing.
I still smoke them like it'll bring you back.

Why can't I get you out of my head?
Why can't I move on?
I've had all the closure that I'll ever need
Still, I can't pick myself back up.

I'll open a pack, and flip one over
as if I really think that'll change my luck.
Maybe I'll smoke that lucky and I'll get those two years back.
Maybe I'll smoke that lucky and I'll never have met you.

Why do I find solace in the smell of the smoke?
It chills and burns coming in,
but I know nothing's ever the same coming out.

Why can't I get you out of my head?
Why can't I move on?
I've had all the closure that I'll ever need
Still, I can't pick myself back up.

Why can't I get free?
Why can't I get free?
You're more powerful than nicotine
and its gonna kill me.
Track Name: Rockstar
1, 2, 3, 8!

Am I real or am I a meme?
A personality through your computer screen?
I know my problems ain't goin' nowhere,
I'm tired of being alone in a world that doesn't care.

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I want to be a rockstar!
Livin' real groovy and playin' guitar on my lawn.
I want to be a rockstar!
Nothin' to worry 'bout except the sounds of my songs.

I want to be thought of as someone new.
Everybody thinks I'm one thing, I'm just what you choose
to see me as. Maybe if you saw my tears you'd see why I laugh.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I want to be a rockstar!
Livin' real groovy and playin' guitar on my lawn.
I want to be a rockstar!
Nothin' to worry 'bout except the sounds of my songs.

I want to be a rockstar!
Livin' real groovy and playin' guitar on my lawn.
I want to be a rockstar!
Nothin' to worry 'bout except the sounds of my songs
Nothin' to worry 'bout except the sounds of my songs!

I want to be thought of as someone new
everybody thinks I'm a meme I'm what you choose.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Knowbody
I come from a place that nobody knows,
We know how to get there but we don't know where it goes,
It's between here and there, and it's all around,
It's even six feet under the cold hard ground.

On-the-road is where I call 'home,'
driftin' through towns is just the way that I go
all the people they all just turn away,
think'in I am wrong cause I just don't want to stay

A message to you all when I'm gone;
Don't remember me,
please remember this song.
Cause there are others like me and we don't all get along.
cause I'm a dead man walking,
and I just don't care at all.
Track Name: Rainbow Diner
I look around at the pictures on the wall.
Where I sit I am two feet tall
to all of the love you gave.
I want to give twice as much as I take.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I thought that I knew myself.
Now I know I needed your help.
Singing with you was more than a dream.
I was living for family.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I know where I'll be
I know where I'll be

Singing with you made everything change
Nobody's alright and that's a part of our name.
There's a mirror between you and me
I want to see everything that you see.

And I'll always be there for you
there's a voice in my head and I hope it's you.
And all that is has got left to say, is "happily ever after for all your days."

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I know where I'll be.
I know where I'll be.
Track Name: 3:59, Solid!
I want to spend more time with the girl who saved my life
I drag my feet when I walk
I know that I should stop

I need to take better care of myself
I need to eat three meals in a day
There are some changes that need to be made

I don't need to be saved right now
I just want to feel like I'm worth it
You make me feel like I am worth it

but our times did not match up
our spaces had diverged
I find this to be a bit absurd

This issue of

Time and space
