Track Name: Michigan Winter
These winds will kill you if you’re not wrapped up just right
You gotta have a bit of tough skin, have someone to love you at night
I’ve been here twenty-four years, and I’m still not used to it
And I still want out of here

Oh, Michigan. Oh, Michigan winter,
you’re not my friend, sinner

And I scheme, and I dream, and I want many things
And I hope, and I plead, but all I do is bleed
And I try, and I fight, but there’s no end in sight
But there’s no end in sight for me

Oh, Michigan. Oh, Michigan winter,
you’re not my friend, sinner

And the Midwest will eat you alive
If creative ways is how you thrive
That’s just a hobby, not a real career,
Oh, the real world is unforgiving!
And without money you’ll never survive, dear.
You’ll never survive here.

Oh, Michigan. Oh, Michigan winter,
you’re not my friend, sinner

Oh Michigan
Oh Michigan, winter
You’re not my friend
You’re not my friend, sinners
You’re not my friend
You’re not my friend
You’re not my friend
You’re not my friend
Track Name: Life On Mars
Once in a blue moon, I'll grab a cold beer
go for a walk, I gotta get out of here
September is just around the corner
I hope I'm better than I was last year
Once in a blue moon, I'll sit on my back porch
feet kicked up, not a care in the universe
I don't know where my future is heading
No direction to follow but the wind through my toes

Pointing at the stars, is there life on Mars?
I don't know anymore.

The world is big. The world is vast,
but my thoughts still circle over my unrelenting past
I want to forget, I want to stay strong
but our summer time is over and gone

And I'm not gonna stay just to keep you happy
My only life grows, even though it feels empty
Our time was short and my life is long
The good die young and the bad move on

While I'm pointing at the stars. Is there life on Mars?
I don't know anymore.
So cure me summer, cure me summer of all my earthly hunger
All of my worries and my cares holding me down because I'm scared.
Track Name: Paper Mache
Follow me — Melt in the sun
I can’t believe the things I’ve done
I cannot breathe, you cannot run.
Follow me — Melt in the sun
Melt in the sun
I’m always afraid I’m not your friend
I’m like paper mache
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind

Follow you, do what you want me to
I’m a rag doll lost in your grasp.
Suddenly bones snap. Suddenly you come back.
You come back, come back, You come back.

I’m always afraid I’m not your friend
I’m like paper mache
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind
Track Name: Swallow
Half of my life was all about the struggle
I fell in love with an innocent pain
And now that I’m here with new expectations
I struggle still but it don’t feel the same
No, it don’t feel the same

No, it won’t matter now. Forget what you know
Because the Bible didn’t ever mention it, so
The truth is an escape, and life carries slow
And sin is a virtue, let it swallow you whole
let it swallow you whole
let it swallow you whole

I don’t know where I’ve been, but I know where I want to go
Many times I’ve hurt myself, and why? God only knows.

Now that I’m here, I need you to notice
The flaws are the same as the beauty therein
Adjust yourself and scramble in focus
And when it dies out, just do it again
just do it again, just do it again
and again and again and

Again with the words flowing from your lips
If it’s magic that you want then it’s regret that you’ll get
For every new truth comes some new bullshit
And I’m still not immune to it

I don’t know where I’ve been, but I know where I want to go
Many times I’ve hurt myself, and why? God only knows.

Was it wrong of me to?
Was it wrong of me to?
Was it wrong of me to?
Was it wrong of me to?
