Track Name: Nothing Left
Don't wanna get up and go into work
The job's too hard, and my boss is a total jerk
Wanna sit on the couch and play video games
Until there's nothing left to beat
Wanna chomp away on chocolate bars
Until there's nothing left to eat

Don't wanna reapply and get myself right back to school
Education's for losers, and I am just too cool
Wanna lie on the couch and watch television
'Til there's nothing left to see
Wanna suck back on those cola drinks
'Til I gotta get up and pee

Don't wanna go outside, it's too bright and bleak outdoors
The view's just fine from this spot here on the floor
Wanna lie on my couch and fall asleep until there's nothing left to dream
Wanna lie on my couch and fall asleep until there's nothing left to dream

Nothing left
There's nothing left
Track Name: Wash Away
The waves are pounding on my shore
And I'm not sure that I can take it any more
The rock inside me cracks and breaks
And starts to wash away

Everyday it breaks me down
Pounds my will into the ground
It takes its time but soon I fear
That I will disappear

The rain is falling day and night
And my mind is just not feeling right
The soil that holds my thoughts
Starts to wash away
It starts to wash away
Track Name: Time to Read
I feel like taking an hour or two
to engage in some romantic daring-do
And maybe I will take a little time
to step right out and solve a major crime

So keep it down or can't you see
We're into our romance and mystery
Trying to fill a literary need
With another good book to read

A good book can carry me away
From an average and ordinary day
yeah

So keep it down, leave me alone
Close the doors and turn off the phone
'Cause all I ever really need
Is a little more time to read

All I need is time to read
All I need is time to read
All I need is time to read
All I ever really need
Is a little more time to read
Track Name: What would you do?
It seems my little world has gotten a little more confusing
Topsy-turvy upside down and twisted through and all around
You didn't tell me exactly why it is you decided to leave
Or if you did for some reason I just didn't hear the sound

And what do you do when your world changes in unexpected ways
And what do you do when you can't understand?

I thought we had our plans and expectations somewhat worked out
Had a sense of who we are and where we're going next
So it seems a little sudden now for you to say it's over
Without any sufficiently explanatory audio or text

And what do you do when your world changes in unexpected ways
And what do you do when you can't understand?
I feel a little lost and a lot confused by recent events
Something that matters fell out of my hands

So what can I say
Would it matter anyway
My mind's a mess
But that is no surprise I guess
What would you do
With this sudden switcheroo
Would you ever say
There could have been another way

There doesn't seem to be much sense in hanging on right now
The finality of your choice well it really hit me hard
So I gotta find my way to making up a new purpose in my life
Find a new direction so that I can start moving forward

And what do you do when your world changes in unexpected ways
And what do you do when you can't understand?
I guess I'll embrace this freedom that's been forced on me
Instead of standing here with empty hands
Track Name: Pale Imitation
Flirtatious smile and wink
A dance and then another drink
Have I seen you here before
And will I get to see you more

It won't be the first, it won't be the last
It won't be the only one
It's just a pale imitation

Lay awake late at night
Questioning wrong and right
Searching for real love
What were you thinking of

It won't be the first, it won't be the last
It won't be the only one
It's just a pale imitation, pale imitation
Track Name: Open Window
Open up my window
And stare out at the trees
15 minutes to breathe again
My eyes look to the clouds
My heart floats there
But then it’s back to work again

My open window to the world
It gives me the peace I need

The wind rustles the leaves
I try to breathe them in
It lets me feel alive again
If I can just hold on
The day is nearly done
And I punch out at 5 again

My open window to the world
It gives me the strength I need

My open window
It’s all I need
