Track Name: Snack Attack
You never deliver
in the times when I need you
if you're tired from the day I don't blame you
but still I need you to follow through

Late at night
you and I never work out quite right

You never want me to do anything
and when I'm in the mood I think you're pretty rude
when I'm full of energy you don't see me
I'm trying to be serious and you're just laughing

Late at night
you and I never work out quite right

I’m getting better at listening
but I don't know where you go late at night
and when I've moved along you suddenly
can't seem to get enough of what we had

Late at night
you and I never work out quite right
Track Name: Flying Fish
A well is for wishing
it is not for fishing
but I'm tired of wishing away
just wanna go fishing
been preoccupied by the simplest of things
that may have been place there as bait by whomever is out there fishing me

It's a big, big, big, big sea
I'm just a little fish gone swimming

Imagine if the sea life went along for the ride
during the process of precipitation and flew up into the sky
when the clouds get heavy enough,
I'll be waiting outside
I'll open my umbrella backwards and wait for those fish to fly

It's a big, big, big, big sea
I'm just a little fish gone swimming

I'm not that great at being a fish
but I'd be the best fisherman
Track Name: Pet Mouse
We got a new pet mouse
it came free with the apartment
wasn't too fond of him at first
but we're starting to get along

Finally settling
but everyone is moving out
finally ready for settling but everyone is up and moving out

Trying hard to concentrate
living below an elephant
who's really into aerobics
and trying hard to get fit

All the dirty dishes
keep on multiplying
someone's got to clean them up
but we're all trying hard to quit

Finally settling
but everyone is moving out
finally ready for settling but everyone is up and moving out

There's monsters in the closets here
they're shy but friendlier this time of year
we didn't always get along
the language barrier kept us apart

Finally ready for settling but everyone is up and moving out
finally ready for settling but everyone is up and moving out
Track Name: Slumber Party
Hey, won't you join me?
let's have a slumber party
hey, won't you join me?
let's have a slumber party

Midnight swimming
it's more fun with a friend
the first time that I jumped off that bridge,
couldn't see what we were jumping in

You don't need your bathing suit
what you're wearing underneath will do

Hey, won't you join me?
let's have a slumber party
hey, won't you join me?
let's have a slumber party

Midnight swimming
it's more fun with a friend
the first time that I jumped off that bridge,
couldn't see what we were jumping in
midnight swimming
it's more fun with a friend
when you hear that train coming
you'll conquer your fear pretty quick

Cannonball,
front flip,
belly flop,
everyone is laughing.
Track Name: Back To School
Where did the summer go?
where did the summer go?

Gonna do it different
gonna start over
gonna plan
gonna take some notes

Where did the summer go?
where did the summer go?

I'm not ready for it to be over
I'm not ready for you to go

Where did the summer go?
where did the summer go?

Gonna do it different
gonna ask you to dance
I never had the chance

I'm not ready for it to be over
I'm not ready for you to go

First day back to school and I'm sleeping
trying to force myself to enjoy reading
but fixated on jumping garbage cans
I'm never in the present tense

Where did the summer go?

I'm not ready for it to be over
I'm not ready for you to go
where did the summer go?
where did the summer go?
Track Name: Egocentrism
Everyone is in their best suit
but I am out of reach
we're headed to the office
but I just want the beach

But when we're headed to the party
everyone's ready to go
am I alone?

When you're on your way to work
everyone is a jerk
I wanna run them off the road
am I alone?

But when we're headed to the party
everyone's ready to go
and I would give up my seat
if you promise to come along
Track Name: Ambiversion
Been working out
thinking that maybe
you might start to like me
when we're hanging at the beach
and reading a lot
so you think that I am smart
and when you want to talk to me I might have something to say

And when everyone is dressing up and going out
I'm feeling a little off

I get so extraverted
but only when no one else is looking

It's not working out
when you only see me out
I'm never feeling quite myself
head is always somewhere else
but you're looking sharp
you're always looking so sharp
I'm trying hard to keep up
but you're leaving me behind

When everyone is dressing up and going out
I'm feeling a little off
I only feel cool when I'm sliding across the kitchen floor in my slipperiest socks

I get so extraverted
but only when no one else is looking

But you're always shining
without ever trying
you're always shining
you're the only one that I see
Track Name: Fun in the Sun
Been keeping cool
by thinking about swimming pools
and trying to stay healthy
but lost in the food court

Losing it, even though I never had it
I'm losing it, even though I never had it

Been out to lunch
and wandering around the zoo
and trying to stay focused
but thinking of your bathing suit

Losing it, even though I never had it
I'm losing it, even though I never had it

Play it cool when you're running out of fuel
you could be having fun under the summer sun
Track Name: Locus of Control
Waiting for the day to show
getting bored and ready to go
and staying out of trouble

Been feeling like you've gone a bit crazy
you can't seem to find where you're glasses are hiding
or the things that make you happy

Now the vitamins are finally kicking in
you've had it all bottled up and can't find an outlet
and feeling so annoying

Waiting for something new and exciting
when you only like what you've already seen
and feeling so annoying
it must be difficult to like me

Feeling like you've gone a bit crazy
you can't seem to find the things that used to make you happy
down your nose they've been sliding
that's where your glasses are hiding

Been laying low
forced right in between the couch pillows
with the older cheetos and pennies
waiting for someone to notice me
before the vacuum starts to get hungry
Track Name: Pizzanomics
You better wise up
and get good at networking
or you're never gonna add up to anything

But I just love pizza so much
I'm choosing it instead of spending every moment trying to get ahead

You may be on top
until the market goes to shit
while I'm still eating pizza loving every minute

I just love pizza so much
I'm choosing it instead of spending every moment trying to get ahead

If I were a frog
I'd hop around all day long
and play a lot of golf
but not when they're mowing the lawns
