Track Name: Float
The sun
Could never blind me
I knew
that you would find me

So I went with the flow
Down the current, whoa
I wanted to go

I floated away
Knowing I'd see you today
I floated away
Hoping you'd still love me today
I floated away
Track Name: Monkeys
All the monkeys in the tree
Said she's not the girl for me
No she's not the girl for me

She said you're stupid and you
Don't know shit about love

There she goes
Oooo-oooo
Oooo-oooo
She's runnin' away

Boy, your girl ain't ever coming back
Didn't we tell you that her heart was black
I know you told me but I
Didn't wanna believe it
I thought I could achieve it, no doubt

But after all those years, look what she did
She turned her back on me when I was just a kid
We were so in love at the age of seventeen
Who knew you could be so mean?

All the monkeys in the tree
Knew I was so fucking naive
I was so fucking naive

She said you're stupid and you
Don't know shit about love

There she goes
Oooo-oooo
Oooo-oooo
She's runnin' away

Boy, you'll find another girl, don't go searching the whole world
She'll be there just when you let go
Well I don't care too much for searchin'
Maybe love just takes some workin'
Guess I'll have to try

But after all those years, look what she did
She turned her back on me when I was just a kid
We were so in love at the age of seventeen
Who knew you could be so mean?

All the monkeys in the tree
Said she's not the girl for me
No she's not the girl for me

She said you're stupid and you
Don't know shit about love
Track Name: Do You Wanna Dance
Do you wanna dance, under the moonlight
Squeeze me all through the night
Oh baby, do you wanna dance

Do you wanna dance, and hold my hand
Tell me baby I'm your lover man
Oh baby, do you wanna dance

Do you
wanna dance?
Track Name: Where Have All the Dancers Gone?
Where have all the dancers gone today?
I am on my way back home
Where have all the dancers gone today?
I am going on alone

Where have all the dancers gone?
I know that it's over.
I know that it's over.
Track Name: Sledding With Tigers - Southbound!!! Northbound!!! Partybound!!! Dead.
I was born on a southbound cart
Fell asleep, and now I'm here
Closed my eyes at the border
of San Diego and somewhere near

But I will die upon this train
But I will spend some time living off the tracks
And I will die upon this train
But I will spend some time before the Devil and I meet

And I will dies upon this train,
But I'll be seated in the front
Your hand in my hand
What more could a boy want?
Track Name: Sledding With Tigers - Sweater Weather
The streetlight, it is fading
So it glows a shade of red,
But I will not stop until I reach my bed
And then I'll waste the precious moments
That the night has with me alone,
But I'll keep the window open
Just to hear its song...
Just to hear its song.

Crumbling, falling speech patterns
Tripping from my tongue
But I can not bare to wait to see this sentence done
Crumbling, falling speech patterns
Dripping from my teeth
The awkward silences
Help my sentence breathe

The youthful, trembling choir
Starts to show its age
Only reading the reddest words
Placed upon the page
A crumbled piece of paper,
I am falling through the wind
I have words upon my face
that read the end.
Track Name: Sledding With Tigers - Pizza Party! 1, 2, 3!!!
I woke up in the morning
With the sunlight shining bright
And I checked my phone for messages
From the people I texted last night
Then I tried to find my glasses
So that I can see the day
So I can get up and convince myself that
I'm ok.

It's time to go to work
I'll take the hours I can get
But at this rate I'm not gonna get the check
I need to pay the rent
Well at least I've got a job
So I say to feel better
But some days I wish I woke up to a day that really mattered to me

Well the best things about me
Are sometimes the worst things about me
And they're always the things that end up hurting
The people I love
Track Name: Sledding With Tigers - They Sure Are Going All Out For Labor Day This Year, Aren't They?
Speak louder,
'cause I don't wanna hear my thoughts
Hug harder,
'cause I don't wanna feel my arms
Sing louder,
'cause I don't wanna hear my voice
Just talk to me, oh please talk to me
'Til I don't feel like this

I'm afraid to be lonely
'Cause when I'm lonely, I get sad
And when I'm sad I sit alone
And it goes on and on and on

I'm feeling better
Because life can't be that bad
But the dark part of my brain that tells me,
"It's that bad"
It will shut, it will shut up, IT WILL SHUT UP
Any day now...
