Track Name: Happy For Later
weight in your mind .. (you) understand why the people can't fly and live in the sky
birds they don't know .. (the) places you go in rubber and metal; and what is the glass?
.. take a walk in my head .. (i) think you will understand
... (a)llow me to simplify things, but please dont be fooled by the rose-coloured glasses and

you cant forever predict the weather. i choose to be happy for later.

drink in your hand .. (you) swallow it whole, thus filling a hole that never relents
throw out your plans .. (and) damn it to hell, you say "might as well smile at the abyss"
Track Name: King Of Hawaiian Shirts
(im the) king of hawaiian shirts, let me show the
works of the summer laidback tshirt
king of the floral print, can i have a
mint when you smell the undertones and

read from the palest face past the way i dis-
play, see the inner back and forth and
read from the colors more than the fabric
im feeling just a little anxious now

.. taking the day-to-day i dont know who i am
.. taking the day-to-day until when i reset

king of hawaiian shirts, drinking coco-
nuts, they're not really coconuts; the
king of parrot print, wont you take a
hint that the birds aint flying high and

look at the setting sun, feeling number
one, all because the day is ending
wake when it rise again, and you still re-
gret all the things you didnt do, oh no

.. taking the day-to-day i dont know who i am
.. taking the day-to-day until when i reset

[solo]

.. taking the day-to-day i dont know who i am
.. taking the day-to-day until when i reset

king of hawaiian shirts, that's how it
works, that's how it works, yes i'm the
king of hawaiian shirts, that's how it
works, that's how it works.

Track Name: The World Is Ending
if im understanding you right
you missed the very last flight
and you don't know where to go

you came back through the tsa
they said it would be ok
but we dont trust a word they say

.. let's take a cab back into town
... i know the sky is brown
... but what else can we do

oh i just dont know quite how to be . when the world is ending
oh i just dont know, lord knows i'll try . but the world is ending
now, and all the legacies you left were all for naught
and they recalled the last thing you forgot

if im understanding you right
you can't sleep much in the night
coz the stars are just a shame

you came back with the morning sun
and knew we needed to run
but we dont trust the road we take

.. let's make a pact to turn around
... all the things that make us frown
... coz what else can we do

oh i just dont know quite how to be . when the world is ending
oh i just dont know, lord knows i'll try . but the world is ending
now, and all the legacies you left were all for naught
and they recalled the last thing you forgot

(solo)

.. let's make a pact to turn around
... all the things that make us frown
... coz what else can we do

oh i just dont know quite how to be . when the world is ending
oh i just dont know, lord knows i'll try . but the world is ending
now, and all the legacies you left were all for naught
and they recalled the last thing you forgot
Track Name: You Can't Help Me (There's No Cake In The Fridge)
washing your tires with
paint marking on the
road everywhere you
go .., if
you cant help yourself, you cant help me

washing your hands without
soap leaving germs on the
stove when you burn your
hand .., if
you cant help yourself, you cant help me

running in circles helping
gnomes get off the lawn
running in circles turning
all of the lights on

eating the cake in the
fridge; there's no cake in the
fridge; there's not even a
fridge .., if
you cant help yourself you cant help me

going to school in your
shorts when its thirty de-
grees; you dont even have
knees .., if
you cant help yourself you cant help me
Track Name: Bleak
(i) know you want to go to bed, it's getting late
(the) moonlight, oh it's shining, & the planes they ain't flying
(i) know you need to rest your head, just lay right here
(the) sunlight, oh it's faded, & your spirit, it's jaded

.. (i) know that the stars are shinning
(but that dont) mean you need to shimmer bright
(you'll) wake to see the sun . (as its) rising
(i) know you're gonna feel alright

(i) know the tricks the teachers play, with heads so young
(the) colors, oh they fading, & the cars, well, they ain't running
(i) know the world is bleak, im blunt on that one thing
(the) letters, ain't no meaning, and the clocks they are a-ticking

.. (i) know that the stars are shinning
(but that dont) mean you need to shimmer bright
(you'll) wake to see the sun . (as its) rising
(i) know you're gonna feel alright

[solo]

.. (i) know that the stars are shinning
(but that dont) mean you need to shimmer bright
(you'll) wake to see the sun . (as its) rising
(i) know you're gonna feel alright

i know there's nothing much to do, just wait it out
i know there's nothing much to do, just wait it out
i know there's nothing much to do, just wait it out
i know there's nothing much to do, just wait it out

..., (well) what are we still waiting for?
(i) sat around for decades now and this is where i am
..., (lets) leave our brains in toxic waste
(and) pass out at the laundramat, and ask them what they think of that

..., (well) i just wanna see the world
(i) walked michigan avenue, but there's nothing to see in something new
..., (lets) talk some existential shit
(and) blame it on the apple sauce, and he who overcooked the brats

i know there's nothing much to do, but i cant wait it out
i know there's nothing much to do, but i cant wait it out
i know there's nothing much to do, but i cant wait it out
i know there's nothing much to do, but i cant wait it out
Track Name: Two Birds
.. (the) sun is shining in our old hometowns
.. (we) said goodbye so long ago
.. taste the breeze of tainted memories
.. smell the meat and hold your own

.. (you) told me stories of a dying tree
.. (a) part of me can still relate
.. gave perspective on the way the doors would close
.. told the debt collector all the things he owes

sometimes i feel like we're two birds in a nest
threatening to fly away
sometimes i feel like we're two birds in a nest
threatening to fly away

.. (the) sun is setting in our old hometowns
.. pop the cork off the champagne
.. taste the rush of making memories
.. smell the fear and hold your own

.. (you) told me stories about planting trees
.. (and) i just felt so warm inside
.. gave perspective on the pathways that you chose
.. down the rabbit hole, a place that no one knows
Track Name: One Ear To The Next
if your day is shaken and
if your heart is breakin you
gotta take a simple step and
put it all away

ain't no time for frownin and
ain't no time for scowlin let's
see that little smile from-a
one ear to the next lets
see that little smile one ear to next

if you're left to drinkin to
stop all of y'thinkin, you
gotta take a simple step to
clear your mind

ain't no time for vices, and
put down your devices, let's
see that little smile from-a
one ear to the next lets
see that little smile one ear to next

i know it ain't easy, and
hell it might seem sleazy to
put all of your fears to bed

(and) i know that it's crappy, but
if you want be happy, you
gotta take a big ol' breath and
learn a little how to let things go, yea
learn a little how to let things go
Track Name: Happy For Later (Reprise)
thought on your mind .. (you) think you know why the people can't fly and live in the sky
give it a go .. i don't think you know the power of life's unstoppable force
. take a walk in my head .. (i) think you'll relate to something here
.. (a)llow me to flesh it out, and ease up all your fears

you cant forever predict the weather. i choose to be happy for later.

drink in your hand .. (you) celebrate life escaping the truth for many a night
throw out your plans .. (and) make something out of the hole when you fall right in
