Track Name: All Gods Go To Heaven / Gods Just Wanna Have Fun
B F# E B

I light candles of the color of the spell I want to cast
and I stare into the flame until it’s gone
I watch birds up in the branches and I listen to their words
and I know I’ll never write a better song
I keep my eye on my shadow and I never turn around when
I’m walking alone in rose hill
And I know that said that I’d never set foot in that place
but some demons just need to be killed

F# E B E B F# E

so it’s okay with me if you believe in god
because I believe in a lot of things
that I know, or I suspect to be fake.

When I stop to fill up my tank I always go to pump number six
I’d never go to pump seven or eight under any circumstance
I always give my van a name because I know that it makes it’s strong
a van without a name isn’t gonna last very long
I never pick up coins unless their on heads, I don’t believe in ghost, when you’re dead your just dead
I believe there is a power in the written verse.
I put blessings on my friends, My enemies I curse
Track Name: Santa Cruz
In santa cruz, I called you.
The show was over and the hipster party had begun
They were wearing christmas sweaters, in september,
smoking weed and having fun

I don’t think that they wanted us there
but we had no place to go
All the cool kids at the show said goodbye and they went home

We drank some of their mulled wine
when they were in the other room
I kinda wanted to be a little drunk before I called you

In Santa Cruz

I played a mountain goats song on a whim and I mixed up all the lines
But everyone sang along with me and I started to feel alight
The days were done the day had come when I said I’d call you
And I ask you once again what we were going to do

In santa cruz, I called you.

I sank down into the seat of the scientists little car
The sky was covered in dark black clouds I couldn’t see a single star
I dialed the numbers that you had written on my arm
A year ago in a better September when I fell for your charm

And I sank and I sank with every word you said
By the time I crawled out of that car, I felt like I was dead

I tried to get back in the house but the door was locked
I guess the party was over already, all the lights were off
I didn’t have a phone of my own, I was using color blind joe’s
So I couldn’t call him to let me in I had to knock on a window

Joe woke up and let me in and I crawled defeated into my sleeping bag.
I guess I talked for hours with you which was hard to believe since you said nothing new
in Santa Cruz when I called you…

Much Much later you told me that I didn’t hang up the phone
You listened to me trying to get into the house and then heard me talking to joe
he said how did it go, how did it go and I said You don’t want to know…
Track Name: Song For Ruby Sparks
I heard you were working in a dungeon
and you were learning how to tell the truth
some people say fiction is boring
but where does that leave you?

Sometimes I think that I made you up
And that you only really live in my head
Sometimes I think my imagination
wants me dead

And I know that I should have never
Let you up on my bed
You left skeletons in the sheets
and every book you read

it didn’t leave much room for me
I didn’t have a place
The story just got worse and worse
I can’t believe I stayed

sleeping on the floor, knocking on your door
to see if you were awake
trying to decided between love and hate
and what’’s real and what is fake
I don’t know if I knew and I don’t know if I do
and I don’t know how I feel about you
Track Name: Not So Smart Phone
E G# A B / A B E

that band got everybody to dance / i don't think i've ever seen a better show
i found you standing at the back of the room / you were looking at your phone

no one knew why you said what you said / but i guess that we should have known
we thought that you were talking to us but / you were looking at your phone

i was surprised when you didn't laugh / i don't think i've ever told a better joke
i thought you must have fallen asleep but / you were looking at your phone

i woke up with a sense of despair / i went to you house to see if you were there
i told you i was down and that i felt so alone but / you were looking at your phone

C# A B BBBBB


we went to see the northern lights / and while they shimmered and shone
you were having a hundred person face book fight / you were looking at your phone

i saw a guy on the side of the road / dressed like death / in long black robes
i ask you if we should give him a ride you said "sure" / you were looking at your phone

the full moon started to crack / it looked like it was ready to explode
i said / i think this might be the end of the world / you said "uh huh"
you were looking at your phone

i told you that i don't love you anymore / and maybe i'd be better off on my own
i ask if you would be okay / you just shrugged / you were looking at your phone

you were looking at your phone
you were looking at your phone
you were looking at your phone
Track Name: Someone New
I can’t believe that I used to defend you
When people told me you were rude
I can’t believe that I used to pretend to
not believe that it was true

you and me used to be friends
but I’ll probably never see you again
and If I do, well I won’t say hi to you
because I’m mad about the things you did and said but

if you want to make amends
you should know I would forgive you
I believe that everyone deserves a second chance
and I believe that you could become someone new
Track Name: Down With The Ship
I turn on every light in my house at night
I make it so bright so there’s nowhere to hide
but the shadows find their way into my mind

I put my favorite records on
to try and chase that song off of my tongue
but when the records done it digs itself back up

I tore up all the photographs
and every letter that you sent
at least that’s what I tell myself I did

but like some kinda cursed artifact
something always makes it back
and I find it in the place where it was hid

by me long ago one day
and I know I should throw it away

But I never take my best advice
I never think I should think twice
I always end up on this sinking ship
but if you want to be a captain like me
you know you’re gonna get lost at sea
and you know you’ll end up sleeping with the fish

I draw sator squares above my doors
and no omens get ignored
I pay careful attention to my creaking floors

I painted all my mirrors black
So I’d never see you looking back
but everyday the paint it peels and cracks

Most of my best friends are ghosts
but you’re the one I miss the miss the most
and I wish that I could wish your soul away

But I tell stories about you
until everyone I know starts to miss you too
and your spirit’s getting stronger everyday

I know I should let go and move on
But I don’t think that I’m that strong and
Track Name: The Only Truth
good things are gonna happen to you
bad things are gonna happen too
you can pretend you’ve got it all under control
but you don’t, you don’t, you don’t

take a look down at your shadow
it’s growing longer everyday
in that darkness you’ll find all of your good memories
and all of your mistakes

good things are gonna happen to you
bad things are gonna happen too
you can pretend you’ve got it all under control
but you don’t, you don’t, you don’t

take a look down at your shoes
and see the damage that’s been done
you’ll find evidence of all the hills that you’ve climbed up
and every nail that you’ve stepped on

good things are gonna happen to you
bad things are gonna happen too
you can pretend you’ve got it all under control
but you don’t, you don’t, you don’t

I’m not saying it doesn’t matter
and I’m not saying that you shouldn’t try
In fact I think that you have to try your very best
until the day that you die

but please don’t put your faith in order
because order is a lie they tel to you
please don’t put your faith in anything at all
chaos is the only truth
Track Name: Mixtapes
If people still made mix tapes
then I’d make you a mix tape
I’d hide a secret meaning in the songs
And I know you would get it
Because you always get it
You always seem to know what’s going on

But people don’t make mix tapes
And no one has a tape deck
I know that I’m exaggerating some
But it’s just not the same
And I’m not afraid of change
But I think that I used to have more fun

In the days when I made mix tapes

Now I don’t know what I can do
If I want to flirt with you
It used to be so simple and so cool
and if you didn’t like the songs
then we’d both know it was wrong
and no one has to look like a fool

I’d use the old type writer
to type the band names and the titles
and I’d put some littles notes in there too
I’d draw something on the cover
with some secrets to discover

In the days when I made mix tapes
Track Name: Moss Man
You're not really traveling if you don't have a home
You might say that it's where ever you're at
And I can Agree with that, but sometimes it's nice to know
that when you're done you can go home

Home to you might mean familiar streets familiar trees
Home to you might mean being with your family
It doesn't have to be by blood, but just the people that you chose to love
Home, it can mean so many things

lately, I've been wanting christmas trees
I'm so jealous of the kids that have big families
I want all my relatives and all their screaming kids
to come over to my house on halloween

It's nice I know to be afloat
under the moon and stars out in the open sea
and it's nice I know to never have to miss your home
and no matter where you are to be at peace
but for me you see
I need to know there's a place I call my home
for me, you see, I don't want to be
a rollin' stone

I want to send a post card to my cat when I'm away
I want to be an old man telling tales about my traveling days
on the front porch of my house sitting on a rotten couch
surrounded by the family I make

I wanna go to alaska and I wanna go back to france
I want to spend at least a year there, live'n with my friends
drinking wine and writings songs speaking french
and when I'm done with that I wanna go home

Culebra and it's sunshine are always on my mind and I'll
be making plans to get back there sometime
and I love the friends I make on these trips that I take
I'll hang their picture on my wall when I get home

It's nice I know to be afloat
under the moon and stars out in the open sea
and it's nice I know to never have to miss your home
and no matter where you are to be at peace
but for me you seeI need to know there's a place I call my home
for me, you see, I don't want to be
a rollin' stone
Track Name: And The Mice Rejoice!
I buried my best friend in the backyard
It was hard it was hard
I found the biggest rock that I could carry
and threw it down on the dirt, it hurt it hurt it hurt

I remember back when you were homeless
well you weren’t homeless but you had ran away
you’re parents didn’t care where you were going,
we let you in, we let you stay

You were a curse to every mouse in the house
but you were a blessing for us
you were not afraid to do, what we couldn’t do
no, you had no problem drawing blood
And the ghost of every mouse you killed
I’m sure they haunted you
but you didn’t give a shit about that ‘cause
there was nothing that you couldn’t sleep through
you were young and you were wild and you were sweet

you saw me through some really bad times
you saw me happy, you saw me fun
I think that you had more friends than I had
because you were so easy to love

I had to leave you at home when I went out on the road
But I drew your picture on almost every wall of every where I’d go

Now I don’t know what to do, I don’t know If I can along without you
Some times I just can’t believe it’s true
And I know that you’re gonna come home soon.

It wouldn’t be the first time that you ran away
but then I remember digging your grave
and I feel like I should have dug one for me too.
