Track Name: Life Of The Party
Ram through the door, display your name in neon marquee
Weasel your way into the frame, life of the party
Soon enough hoist the group baton and grasp the reigns, commence the march
To the belly-full, two-tone jamboree in the dark

Time fades away, depreciate the silly casuals
And speculate what you could make, it’s only natural
Stake in the ground, foundation for your mansion house on muddy shore
Time to cut away, get gone, ghost ‘em

You overloading
You overfloating
You overtaking
Are you mistaken?

Climb to the top of the summit ‘til you’re the trophy
Feel at the base to hold your place, life of the party
Look down upon your precious works for any dirt or extra mirk
Time to cut away, get gone, got ‘em

You overloading
You overfloating
You overtaking
Are you mistaken?

You’ve been itching of improving stitches
Scoping aisles, combing for the best
Are you lacking, got your ego dragging?
You cut unwanteds, coming for me next
Track Name: Charleston Rose
I stumbled upon a strange beauty
And in a town I’d never strolled before
She whispered history just like she knew me
Until I came in closer wanting more

You might have me wrapped up
And my dollars are out

Are you my Charleston rose
Will you hold up forever or wither out of fold
Be my little Charleston rose
And remind both of us of forever ago

I was enamored and titillated
Under palmettos with their nosy eyes
Her shape had focused from gentle blades
Into ethereal weaving like a prize
And in that moment I just had to cave in
Just like old Rico had told me so

You might have me wrapped up
And my dollars are out

Are you my Charleston rose
Will you hold up forever or wither out of fold
Be my little Charleston rose
If I’m sent upriver will you keep up whole
In our luggage baby, I don’t know
When I see you next will it be familiar
Keep green my Charleston rose
And remind both of us of forever ago

Be my little Charleston rose
Track Name: Imaginary Binds
It’s too damn easy to forget that the sun still shines
Lost in it all before someone catches your eye
The ocean waves will only carry boards that try
I fake defeat just to go gawk on the sidelines

Pick me up and let me glide tonight
Forget all the weight I drag behind

You snap me out of resting fog within my mind
And lead me down to all the hidden tourist sights
Get lost in dance with old pop songs and cliché lines
And wrap me up without a word that you are mine

Pick me up and let me glide tonight
Forget all the weight I drag behind
Pick me up and let me glide tonight
Cut loose all the weight I drag, the weight I drag behind

Hey, won’t you tell me how we are both here together now?
Hey, won’t you tell me why you came?
Hey, can’t we leave behind all of these imaginary binds?
Hey, won’t you tire just the same?
Track Name: Take Notes
You think you’re hilarious, you better take notes
When all of your diatribes have all the same jokes
You never apologize for breaking off limbs
Sew them together now for your appendage

But sometime you might try to take a walk
Past all the suits on your protected block
Just take a step down carefully off your gold-coated soapbox
And talk to me with your hands at your sides

No velvet ropes or credits earned
Now that the bubble has been burst
You’re going to get a whopper right there where it hurts
Take notes

You think you’re American in your spangled-star cloak
Spouting core principles with snot in your throat
Splattered on documents in bold comic sans
Raised up for all to view and cry on command

But sometime you might try to take a walk
Past all the suits on your protected block
Just take a step down carefully off your gold-coated soapbox
And talk to me with your hands at your sides

No velvet ropes or credits earned
Now that the bubble has been burst
You’re going to get a whopper right there where it hurts
Perk up to all words that are spoke
From all the ones that need you most
You’re going to learn that love and freewill can’t be owned
Take notes
