Track Name: Overthinking Brain
When I woke up this morning
I thought about life and death
And then I got all fucked up on regret
My baby
When I woke up this morning
I thought about you leaving me
The future is always haunting me

I need you here with me darling
'Cause I am all alone
I need you here with me darling
'Cause I'm afraid of being on my own
I need you here with me darling
Before I go insane
I need you here with me darling
To save me from my overthinking brain

When I woke up this morning
I saw you lying next to me
I hope that's how it will always be
My baby
When I woke up this morning
I thought about you leaving me
The future is always, always, always haunting me

I need you here with me darling
'Cause I am all alone
I need you here with me darling
'Cause I'm afraid of being on my own
I need you here with me darling
Before I go insane
I need you here with me darling
To save me from my overthinking brain

I need you here with me darling
I really need you-hoo (x3)
I need you here with me darling
I need you

I need you here with me darling
'Cause I am all alone
I need you here with me darling
'Cause I'm afraid of being on my own
I need you here with me darling
Before I go insane
I need you here with me darling
To save me from my overthinking brain

I really need you-hoo (x6)
Track Name: Friedrich Carl von Savigny
Being bored to death is probably not as bad as World War Three
But at least a third world war would shake things up for me
Because I've been staring at the same page
For a period of lost days
Trying to study the theories
Of Friedrich Karl von Savigny

Well, I've been living in a vicious cycle
And I wanna buy a motorcycle
And get the fuck away from here
Kick my life into a different gear
But I have no more money
Not a joke, I'm not that funny
Holy shit and holy cow
I've really gone and fucked it all up now
Now

Friedrich Karl von Savigny
You're gonna be the death of me
I don't wanna study your theories
On legal applicability
Friedrich Karl von Savigny
Why won't you just let me be

Well fuck it all, fuck the law
I've never understood it all
And I've never really understood
How I could and why I should
Know every single little line
About what will get you a fine
Put one more lawbook on my shelf
And I might just start breaking law myself
Myself

Friedrich Karl von Savigny
You're gonna be the death of me
I don't wanna study your theories
On legal applicability
Friedrich Karl von Savigny
Why won't you just let me be

And who ever thought it was a good idea
To make you choose a study while you're not even near
Adulthood, 'cause I was only seventeen
There were so many things that I could not foresee
And Friedrich Karl von Savigny
Is now who I'm supposed to be
Set me free

Being bored to death is probably not as bad as World War Three
So maybe I should just wait and see
Track Name: Camping Trip
Life is like a camping trip, I always fuck it up
I decide to go with the wrong crowd
Then I'm surprised they suck
Life is like a rollercoaster and I'm not tall enough to ride
I don't have the required social skills
And all my jokes are shite

I think nostalgia has hit me
Although I am just barely nineteen
I keep on wanting to go
Back to other times
I'm not looking for perfection
But I need a new direction
Cause I can't go on
Living this way of life

Life is like a box of chocolates, though I've never seen Forrest Gump
And sometimes life is like a leap of faith
And I don't really want to jump
But most of all, life's fucking terrifying and you need to cope with that
I wish that there was a way to stop these thoughts
From running through my head

I think nostalgia has hit me
Although I am just barely nineteen
Keep on wanting to go
Back to other times
I'm not looking for perfection
But I need a new direction
Cause I can't go on
Living this way of life

And I know that life is tough
But I'm not going to give up
And I know the world's fucked up
But I'm not going to give up

I'll keep nostalgia here with me, because it's part of who I will be
And I'll need it for
The rest of my life
I'll stop asking all these questions, because I'll find a new direction
For living my way of life
Track Name: Insomnia
Fell asleep on the job again
Now they want me gone, yeah I am
Banned, banned, banned, banned
Your sleeping cycle has no end
When insomnia is your only friend

I sit and stay awake and I feel cheated
Cause I can't stay awake when it is needed
Can only close my eyes when I'm defeated
And afterwards the cycle is repeated

Wake me up (x4)

Stayed awake through the night again
It doesn't seem to ever
End
My eyes are closed during the day
And in the night my dreams don't want to stay

I sit and stay awake and I feel cheated
Cause I can't stay awake when it is needed
Can only close my eyes when I'm defeated
And afterwards the cycle is repeated

Wake me up (4x)

I don't know what to do anymore
I've tried my best to cope with the situation but despite my best efforts I lie awake at night
Wondering whether the direction my life is going in is the right one and if I should really be working this job, really be doing these things and if I shouldn't just start everything over
And I know it's no way to live my life and I know that you can't help me but I wish that someone could just help me so I could close my eyes at night
Because right now the insomnia is getting to me and making me afraid and I wish that someone would just

Wake me up (x4)

Wake me up
Cause I can't do this no more
Wake me up
Cause I’m lying on the floor
Wake me up
Wake me up (2x)

Wake me up
Cause my life is draining me
Wake me up
This ain't how I'm supposed to be
Wake me up
Wake me up
Track Name: The Fire
Oh, I can be
The one you're needing
And I can be
The one you are misleading
Oh, I can be
Your one desire
But in the end we'll both burn in the fire

Oh, I can be
The one you're trusting
Or I can be
The one you find disgusting
Oh, I can be
All you require
But in the end we'll both burn in the fire

And yeah, you'll burn
Away with me
Through our joy and misery
And yeah, you'll burn
And we'll expire
And in the end we'll both burn in the fire

Oh, I can be
The one you're missing
And I can be
The one you want to be kissing
Oh, I can be
Your knight or squire
But in the end we'll both burn in the fire

And yeah, you'll burn
Away with me
Through our death and misery
And yeah, you'll burn
And we'll expire
And in the end we'll both burn in the fire

Oh you can beg
And you can worry
And you can cry
And you can hurry
And you can preach
You van be preaching to the choir
But that won't save
You and me
From the fire

And yeah you'll burn

And yeah you'll burn
You'll burn, you dirty liar
And in the end we'll both burn in the fire
The fire
The fire
The fire
Yeah in the end we'll both burn in the fire
Track Name: Elevator Boy
Like an elevator boy I'm pushing all your buttons
But I don't know whether I'll get us there
Like an elevator boy I'm pushing all your buttons
But I'm too numb and too afraid to even care

We go up and down
But my brain keeps turning
Up and down
But I’m always there
We go up and down
With my stomach churning
Up and down
But I'm filled with fear

Like an elevator boy I know just where you're going
And I know because I am always keeping score
Like an elevator boy I know just where you're going
But I'm afraid that if I get you there, you won't see me anymore

We go up and down
But my brain keeps turning
Up and down
But I’m always there
We go up and down
With my stomach churning
Up and down
But I'm filled with fear

Like an elevator boy I know just where you're going
And you know that I will never leave you behind
Like an elevator boy I'll always be here standing
And waiting by your side

We go up
We go down
We go up
Down
Up
Down
Up
Down

We go up and down
But my brain keeps turning
Up and down
But you're always there
We go up and down
With my stomach churning
Up and down
But I'm filled with fear
Track Name: Everybody Likes You
Everybody likes you, you're such a lovely man
You're always there for everyone and help out when you can
Oh, everybody likes you, but mutual it's not
'Cause you stab them three times in the back and still you don't get caught
Oh, everybody likes you, but you're a slimy fraud

Everybody likes you and everyone's your friend
They don't see that your friendship will one day end
Oh, everybody likes you, 'cause they don't see your lies
Every kiss and every handshake is a disguise
Oh, everybody likes you but you won't compromise

Why don't you fuck off, why don't you just die
If you make just one more friend I think I'm gonna cry
Why don't you fuck off, why don't you just die
And when you're dead tell Satan that I said hi
Oh, everybody likes you, but I just can't see why
Why
Why
Why
Track Name: Accidents Exist
I accidentally fell down the stairs at the station
And accidentally I hit a kid during my fall
And accidentally her mother started screaming
Though maybe that was not an accident at all

I accidentally kept all my calls muted
So when you called, I didn't answer my phone
But believe me, that was accidentally
I didn't ever feel like leaving you alone

Fucking up is human and accidents exist
The president can stub his toe and Robin Hood can miss
Fucking up is human and everything is fine
But don't fuck up as much as me
Or you will cross the line
You will cross the line

I accidentally went out for some drinking
And accidentally, well I took it all too far
Because I drank and smashed a few glasses
And then the owner kicked me right out of this bar

Fucking up is human and accidents exist
The president can stub his toe and Robin Hood can miss
Fucking up is human and everything is fine
But don't fuck up as much as me
Or you will cross the line
You will cross the line

And please don't let me near your house
By accident I'll burn it down
And please don't let me near your kid
By accident he'll take a hit
And please don't give me any trust
Because I always fuck it up
I fuck it up, I fuck it up

I accidentally made all my friends hate me
And accidentally I got my whole life off track
Maybe I should just start to focus
And maybe that will get me all of my friends back
Track Name: Brush Teeth
I need to brush my teeth
So I can save my brain
Because horrible dental hygiene can make a man go insane
I need to wash my body
At least three times a week
Because otherwise bacteria might start to make me weak

And it's all good advice
But I'm not listening
Because I have terrible discipline
And it's all good advice
But I'm not a model citizen
And I have no discipline

I need a steady diet
And I need to work out
Because I am getting fatter and it's killing me, no doubt
I need to shave more often
And do something about my hair
Because I look like a caveman and I'm not even aware

And it's all good advice
But I'm not listening
Because I have terrible discipline
And it's all good advice
But I'm not a model citizen
And I have no discipline

And ever since I've moved out into my own room
I have had so much time but there is nothing I will do
And it might seem like I am giving up the fight
But it'll be alright, it'll be alright, it'll be alright

If I just brush my teeth
And I save my brain
My white teeth will keep me from going more insane
I'll wash my body
And I might even shave
I'm gonna try it all, yes I am coming out my cave

And it's all good advice
And I'll start listening
Although I have terrible discipline
And it's all good advice
And I'll be a participant
Though I have no discipline

And it's all good advice
And I'll start listening
Although I have terrible discipline
And it's all good advice
And I'll be a participant
Yes I’ll have some discipline
Track Name: Labels
No matter what I decide to be
It won't change what people think of me
I could start acting all grown up
But everyone already has their minds made up

And no matter where I decide to go
There will always be people who think they know
Better than me, even though they can't see
Who I want to be

I'm not an emo
I'm not a punk or anarchist
While you try to place your labels
There is one thing you have missed
You can't put me in a corner
I'll always want to be free
So go ahead and try me
You won't place your labels on me

No matter how I might change my ways
They'll only remember my darkest days
Filled with Freudian slips and slept-through internships
And ruined camping trips

I'm not an emo
I'm not a punk or anarchist
While you try to place your labels
There is one thing you have missed
You can't put me in a corner
I'll always want to be free
So go ahead and try me
You won't place your labels on me

Because the world keeps turning me away
And it gets harder and harder everyday
To keep all of my thoughts at bay
Because me having opinions is not okay
And that makes me wonder, should I stay
Did this place ever matter to me anyway
Because the state of my state is a state of dismay
Track Name: A Minor Problem, CelineShanice - The Ground
Oh, I can be happily humming
Or I can be afraid of what's coming
Oh, I can be singing aloud
But in the end

Just live your life and make it count
Don't just live for tomorrow live for here and now
And do everything you can
So live your life and do it quick
Because one day you will find out not everything will stick
And that no matter where we're found
We end up in the ground

Oh, I can wait on my degrees
Or I can do whatever I might please
Oh, I can go
Go round and round
But in the end

Just live your life and make it count
Don't just live for tomorrow live for here and now
And do everything you can
So live your life and do it quick
Because one day you will find out not everything will stick
And that no matter where we're found
We end up in the ground

Because no matter if you're an anarchist
A punk rocker or capitalist
No matter if you're black or white
Transgender or hermaphrodite
No matter if you're bad or good
No matter, whatever your mood
No matter, yeah no matter where we're found
We end up in the ground

So live your life and make it count
Don't just live for tomorrow live for here and now
And do everything you can
So live your life and do it quick
Because one day you will find out not everything will stick
And that no matter where we're found
We end up in the ground
Track Name: Do Something
I am gonna do something
To make you proud
I am gonna do something
That will count
I am gonna do something
To make them see
That I am a small part of you
And you're a part of me

I am gonna do something
To shed the past
I am gonna do something
That's always gonna last
I am gonna do something
And make a stand
I am gonna do something
So that they will understand
Track Name: Every Day
I guess I've realised
That the last year has passed me by
And I should open up my eyes
'Cause you've always been here
Your words and actions all sincere
But I was occupied with fear

And you should know
I'm always gonna stay
Because I need you
And you tell me that you love me every day
Every day
Every day
Every day

And I know how you feel
With all these wounds that need to heal
No confirmation of what's real
But I can promise you
There's nothing that I just won't do
To make all of this up to you

And you should know
I'm always gonna stay
Because I need you
And you tell me that you love me every day
Every day
Every day
Every day

No matter what you want
No matter what you're gonna say
I won't ever
Run away

I won't run away
Run away (x11)

I won't run away, run away, run away (x3)
Every day
