Track Name: Bottle Rocket - The Night After
"The Night After"

Run your fingers through my
hair to feel every strand.
Whisper my name
to your pillow,
take my arms and pull
me close.

Chorus:
I swear this doesn’t
mean anything. I’ll
grab my clothes in the
morning, run back to
my house and find someone
new.

Kiss me outside a bar
and bring me up your
stairs. Lock the doors,
turn the lights out.
We can laugh and drink all
night, but I’ll be a
ghost in your bed
when the sun decides to rise.

I’m only good for sex
A quick fuck
attractive for a night
of fun.
But if you want
to get close you’ll soon
realize I’m better
replaced by a more
stable person
a more stable person
and I can’t be mad
that I am so
easily replaced, it’s just
sudden disappointment
to know that I
lack the ability to be good
enough.
Well I wrote this for
her
and her
and me.
Track Name: Bottle Rocket - Weak
“Weak”
Chorus:
Sometimes I
hold my breath.

I miss the dizzy
feeling in my chest.

Miss you in
my front seat.

My vomit is black.
My hair is straw.
Sunken eyes.
Under bags of clothes.

I am weak.
I’m never strong.

Verse:
Much like my wardrobe
most of me is
made up of tiny pieces
people threw away
or donated.
Like chemical bonds
take this, I don’t need it.
I am never going
to find a whole set,
anything that isn’t borrowed
used or trashed.

Bridge:
I never will know what love is.
I never knew what love was.
Throwing up in the
toilet
at 8 o’clock in the morning.
Wondering what made me
think I could drink you
away.
Why’d I think
I could drink you
away?
Track Name: The New Nowhere - Drywall in my Eye
I am sifting through my voice mail,
Desperate to hear you speaking,
As I lay down on the floor
And count the tiles on the ceiling.
Try to make out constellations
In their cracks and spots and holes.
Close my eyes and take a breath;
Take a breath, inhale and hold.

I'll get drunk on the floor of an attic bedroom,
And I'll fall down in the front yard.
I'll have a shit eating grin
As the rain begins
'Cause I don't know where my shoes are;
No I don't know where my shoes are.

There is not quite enough time left
To still be considered night.
So we'll share my last cigarette
And search for satellites.
The gradient from red to blue;
The sunrise that we never knew
From sleeping in till the afternoon,
And waking up hungover.

I'll get drunk on the floor of an attic bedroom,
And I'll fall down in the front yard.
I'll have a shit eating grin
As the rain begins
'Cause I don't know where my shoes are;
No I don't know where my shoes are.
Track Name: The New Nowhere - I Hate Last Summer
I hate last summer,
Wrecked my car on the last day of high school.
It was the first day I learned to walk again,
But there's no place here worth going.

I hate last summer,
When you were overseas vising family
That you'd never even met before.
Wasted all my time by the phone
Waiting for you to keep your promises.


Light green eyes
And long dark brown hair,
I'd give anything to go
Anywhere but here.
My thoughts of you are gone now,
And I can't quite hear
The way you said "I love you"
Before you disappeared.


I hate last summer,
Making seven twenty-five an hour
And putting it all in to a band
That was never going anywhere.

And I hate last summer,
How we fought every single fucking day.
How you thought my school was too far away
For your trust issues to handle.


Light green eyes
And long dark brown hair,
I'd give anything to go
Anywhere but here.
My thoughts of you are gone now,
And I can't quite hear
The way you said "I love you"
Before you disappeared.
Track Name: The New Nowhere - We Recorded This Song Instead of Watching the Super Bowl
We were walking down the streets out in the rain.
I kept steady on my feet all the same.
I'm gonna explode, I'm gonna go insane,
But on the outside I look perfectly okay.

Why speak out today,
What I can put off for forever?
When you ask if I'm okay
The real answer is no never;
No never.

I will play the part
If you want me too.
And if all else fails,
We can make things real.

My eyes rolled back into my head.
I wasn't feeling too well.
My hands are shaking,
But nonetheless I'm staying still.
Your head was spinning
And my arms are falling off.
My face is bleeding from where you punched me in the eye.
I never thought we'd work things out.
(I never thought we'd work things out)

Why speak out today,
What I can put off for forever?
When you ask if I'm okay,
The real answer is no never;
No never.

I will play the part
If you want me too.
And if all else fails,
We can make things real.
