Track Name: No One Changes
No One Changes

Mind is blown but her body’s still in shock 
Can’t see nothing as she’s staring at the kitchen clock 
Feels so bland in the eye of the storm it's a bedroom day 
We should switch we should pass ourselves around 
Meet me at the corner tear your dream home down 
It’s a goddamn shit-show out here now 
Something to tell you bout that someone told me bout 
I know I’m weak and this weekend you’ll find out 
Yes I sleep at that fucking whore’s house now 
But it’s cinematic, cinematic fades to black 
Everyday is a rodeo, man 

No one’s gonna change 
Nobody ever does 
No one’s gonna change 
Nobody's changing for you 
No one’s gonna change 
Nobody ever does 
And I’m never gonna do what you want me to 

Sitting here speaking Greek to a college blog 
Every sentence is the same it's just talk, talk, talk 
I’m one, I admit it, of a million 
Who has it out for these soapbox idiots 
The click clack of your high heels you’re away 
Downstairs on a tic-tac stripper’s break 
Every dancer trying to sync to the beat 
Every motherfucker in this place tells me the same shit 
This whole world’s got to buy you a drink, man 
Got to take you to the edge and watch you throw it up 
Every morning I could give a damn what you did last night 
Just tell me how far to kick this can 

No one’s gonna change 
Nobody ever does 
No one’s gonna change 
No one is changing for you 
No one’s gonna change 
Nobody ever does 
And I’m never gonna do what you want me to 

I don’t wanna to feel so jaded 
Getting on a plane to work things out 
When I’m alone you’re all I think about 
But I’m never alone very long 

They say you got to love yourself first that’s a trip 
I’ve been hating myself since I was little kid 
I know it's sad that the game’s rained out and all the bleachers emptied out 
and the turnstiles spin 
All the good ones in the world they keep dropping dead 
Everybody’s got a bullet flying at their head 
I’ve seen it coming man, I’ve seen it coming 
I’ve seen it coming 

No one’s gonna change 
Hey and that’s the truth 
No one’s gonna change 
Oh baby not for you 
No one’s gonna change 
Hey and that’s the truth 
And I’m never gonna do what you want me to
Track Name: The Rockaways
The Rockaways

Scared of everything 
Everything’s on blast 
Never travel light 
I carry the past 
In an armored car 
That’s my skeleton 
Worship one idea 
Like a super fan 

In a gallery 
With a slanted view 
There’s a book signing 
Dystopian haikus 
As they’re read out loud 
Under Edison lights 
Makes me scratch my head 
And think of simpler times 

Borrowed a car for the day 
We drove it out to The Rockaways 
And you went swimming 
I watched you swimming 

I’m made of money now 
But there’s nothing I want 
Except expensive wine 
To watch the rocket launch 
We’ll climb up on the roof 
And sit in plastic chairs 
Watch it accelerate 
Until it disappears 
Just like your goodbye voice 
Trailing off down the hall 
I love you baby I’ll 
Be back in one hour 
You’ll try and smile then 
Sometimes it doesn’t stick 
I’ll help you tune it out 
I’ll help you reminisce 

Borrowed a car for the day 
Filled it up with some friends I’d made 
And they went dancing 
I watched them dancing 

Don’t feel badly 
I’m barely angry 
It's not too much to contain 
Always knew that 
It'd probably happen 
We’d put these memories to shame 

Borrowed a car for the day 
Gassed it up for our get-a-way 
Said you’d be waiting 
I left you waiting
