Written, performed, produced, recorded, and mixed by Colin Loynachan. Artwork by Eileen McNulty. Piano and Organ on tracks 1, 2, 8 by Adrian Calderon. Drums on track 2 by John Kronlokken. Acoustic and electric rhythm guitar on track 3 by Aleksander Seeman. Special thanks to Christian Wheeler and Jay Carlson who assisted in the inspiration and creative concept behind the music, and who comprise the band's vital rhythm section for live performances. While they are technically not heard on this record, it remains very easy to hear them on this record. Also thank you to Elliott Tadanier, a founding member of Fringe Pipes. Without Elliott, none of this would have been possible.

Track Name: Intro
If you just look around, you're gonna figure out who's putting' it down
Girl, look what you've found; come and sit down if you wanna live downtown
Let's flip on the TV, then we'll see what we've been getting for free
Track Name: A Little Before Nine
We broke up when I woke up yesterday
I opened my eyes, she slowly faded away
Now I see it was all inside of my head
Now I just can't get out of bed

Well, I'm so tired of waiting around
Numbing myself; searching for a way out
Maybe I'd get a little more sleep at night
If I could just wake up a little before nine

If I could just wake up a little before nine,
I'd straighten right up and quit wasting your time,
Get a real job and obey the law,
But that'd be no fun at all...
If I could just wake up a little before nine,
Then I'd be doing just fine
Then I'd be feeling alright
Then I might be on your mind

All the little things she says just bring me closer,
Every little thing I do just seems to bore her...
Track Name: Rain
Everyday when I kiss your face,
I say it'll be okay
and that I'll stay
And sometimes when I look at you,
I get the feeling that we're through
'cuz there's nothin' left to do.

You don't love her, but you don't know why
You can't tell her, without telling a lie
Maybe you're just too high

And the way that she looks at you
Looks as though she's telling the truth
Oh but you don't want her to

Well Darlin' can't you hear the rain?
Can't you see that you and I are turning grey?
Used to feel you in my bones and in my brain
Now all that I can feel is you fade away

Can't you see that you and I are turning grey?
Track Name: Styrofoam
Walk in the front door I see a
A Ziggy sippin' on a
Gives me that look that says, "hey man you know this don't come cheap"
It's Free

Oh, I know I should mop the floor
And so I donut get bored
I'll pop a top and take a pop and anything on my nerves
It'll hurt

I'm stoned, I'm styrofoam
Out cold, leave me alone
I got high, and I kissed the sky
I'm blind and I'm satisfied

Oh, I've got an answer
I need a problem
My knees are shaken and my tricks are hiding up my sleeve

Well, despite my crooked nature
I really want to make her
See I'm no calculator
Save me for later baby, please

I'm stoned, I'm styrofoam
Out cold, leave me alone
I got high, and I kissed the sky
I'm blind and I'm satisfied
Track Name: Your Daddy Says (I'm Just Confused)
You were sitting by him looking over my way that way last nite
That's right
It was plain to see you could easily let go

You came a knocking on my door the night before like you wanted more
Yea, like you wanted more
And now you are gonna make me break another rule

And I die a little bit inside every single time you tell another lie
Girl, what you trying to hide?
You say I'm just right but there's something stopping you

You know we could make this alright
Just you and I
We'll unplug the phone and then this is how it'll go:

I'm not your dog, I'm just your man
And Jesus Christ has holes in his hands
Cuz' he was the king of disregarding the rules
Your daddy says I'm just confused

(Your daddy says I'm just confused)
Track Name: Simmer Down
Maybe I should mellow out
Sober up and simmer down
I'll paint my salary onto my house
That way there will be no doubt

I think I'll cut off my hair
You'll realize what's under there
And then I'll do what I should
And then I'll act real good
And then I'll be real nice
And then I'll do it all nite...

Just when you think
You're having fun
You accidentally go out and then you bug someone

And then the moon looks at you
Asking, "what will you do?"
For the rest of your life,
Do whatever you like
But what about tonight?
Track Name: Just Try & Calm Down
Just try and calm down
She will be back this way
She will love you someday
Just stick around

You're on your knees
You're beggin' please
Won't you just spend five minutes talking to me?

But the answers are fleeting
And having the answer is cheating
But somehow these answers are making their way across the whole damn town
Just try and calm down

I gotta little problem that I think you know too well
Used to have a woman, now she's with someone else
It's easy to tell

I always kept her warm at night, I never did her wrong
I even did her dishes before I'd mow the lawn
But I guess that's just not enough

Just try and calm down
She will be back this way
She will love you someday
Just stick around

You're on your knees
You're beggin' please
Won't you just spend five minutes talking to me?

But the answers are fleeting
And having the answer is cheating
But somehow these answers are making their way across the whole damn town
Just try and calm down

So I wrote a nice letter and I mailed it to the Lord
But she was too busy so I just got ignored
Then I went to the store to buy some alcohol
I took that seven-fifty, thought I could drink it all
Then I wrote her another letter on the floor of a bathroom stall

Just try and calm down
She will be back this way
She will love you someday
Just stick around

You're on your knees
You're beggin' please
Won't you just spend five minutes talking to me?

But the answers are fleeting
And having the answer is cheating
But somehow these answers are making their way across the whole damn town
Just try and calm down
Track Name: Special Blend
When everything outside gets cold
You find yourself all alone
Well, you know just how to stay warm

Call up a friend about half past two
You need someone to come and talk to you
Cuz, you know they always tell the truth

Now all you wanna do is go to sleep
So you go outside one last time
To forget just where you put your dreams

Special blend
My special blend
She is my friend

Big ol' yellow sun goes down
Only thing left for you is the air
It doesn't make a sound

So when you're bored beyond compare
Take a breath my friend
She's so much better
Than breathing air

She is my friend
Track Name: Someplace You'd Rather Be
We, we were really cool
Always skipping school
You could really fool a fool

And I, I was always at your door
I guess you were so adored
You knew you could afford one more

He came with a shirt pinned to his rose
All died black and sold
Now he says he's broke

He just told his stupid joke
About how I shouldn't smoke
Then he kissed you on the nose

I know that you care, sir
But I don't wanna share her
I just wanna marry up and go somewhere

It's not that hard to see, girl
That you belong in my world
Unless there's somewhere else that you'd rather be...
Track Name: Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die
Roll me up and smoke me when I die
And if anyone don't like it, just look 'em in the eye
Say I didn't come here, and I ain't leavin'
So don't sit around and cry
Just roll me up and smoke me when I die.

You won't see no sad and teary eyes
When I get my wings and it's my time to fly
Just call my friends and tell them
There's a party, come on by
And just roll me up and smoke me when I die.

Roll me up and smoke me when I die
And if anyone don't like it, just look 'em in the eye
Say I didn't come here, and I ain't leavin'
So don't sit around and cry
Just roll me up and smoke me when I die.

Well just take me out and build a roaring fire
And just roll me in the flames for about an hour
And then pull me out and twist me up
And point me towards the sky
And roll me up and smoke me when I die.

Roll me up and smoke me when I die
And if anyone don't like it, just look 'em in the eye
Say I didn't come here, and I ain't leavin'
So don't sit around and cry
Just roll me up and smoke me when I die.

I didn't come here, and I ain't leavin'
So don't sit around and cry
Just roll me up and smoke me when I die.
