Track Name: KISSing
Keep it simple, stupid
you're right on track
did you take the time to notice
there's no monkey on your back?
if you get sick of the colors
you can always paint it black
keep it simple, stupid
the nuts about to crack

Keep it simple, stupid
don't lose your head
if it gets too hot to handle
you can always stay in bed
if you can't make it great
you'll make it good enough instead
keep it simple, stupid
it's time to bake the bread

Keep it simple, stupid
you can write this song
if you thought you'd lost the magic
you were only half dead wrong
try to get, to the place
and then stay there til it's gone
keep it simple, stupid
you're right where you belong
Track Name: Waltz for Christina
A flattened root beer
plus Canadian XL
some shit on Netflix
an empty bag of Taco Bell

You're in Iceland
I'm lonely in the USA
at least there's Facebook
but you're a million miles away

But really, I'm okay
I just wrote this song to say
that I miss your face and brain
and I think you're great
Track Name: Planned Obsolescence
My movie's overdue
and I can't renew
I wanna see it through
but I've got shit to do

The binding fell apart
and it can't be glued
you gotta have a heart
to speak true

Every day
I feel something slip away
but I'm trying to make
a new way

I still have plenty left to say
and I have never been much for fate
the steps are mine to take
and maybe I needed the break

The writing isn't on the wall
it's in my hands and tongue
I wanna have it all
and I'm still young

I feel safe
I see the patterns in the waves
I see them change

So drain the sentiment
but don't ever let the well run dry
open up the vents
and let out the hard sigh

I remain
a light scattered on the stage
hear me sing
