Track Name: Espresso Queen
You got my head in the clouds
I never see you around
Pour me a shot, make it steam
My little espresso queen

Cuz you're the one I want
You're on my mind and in my dreams
Just come inside and set me free

Sometimes you treat me too strong
The way you feel on my tongue
Your body's way too obscene
My little espresso queen

My bitter, two-filter 'spresso queen
Ristretto, give me that sweet caffeine
Iced latte, now I'm addicted to the bean

Grind me some beans make 'em fine
It's an aroma define
You really froth up my cream
My little espresso queen
Track Name: Ferrous Oxide
Falling down into life
Not ready to fight the battles of my life
I'm calling out, I need someone to release
the stress that lies beneath
that mask that I put on, I need to be strong
For the people that count on
me standing my ground, I'm never looking down
It's so hard to be someone without giving up your art
It's all falling apart without you

When your mind gets scattered
pick it up, pick it up, yeah
Track Name: Rain
Someone once told me that it's only rain
It'll pass and it'll come out again
Never knowing quite when, but just you wait
Soon you'll feel the warmth on your skin

Just come on baby
You just have to wait
But I can't promise that it won't stop pouring
So that means you're gonna learn how to dance in the rain

You know we don't have to do anything
Lay here with me, look in my eyes
All I wanna do is hear your voice
Sing your songs, I won't say a word
Track Name: New Years Jawn
Love is something all people share
You just have a funny way of showing it

Later in the evening when the sun goes down to die
Everyone comes marching to lay flowers by her side
Let's have a celebration to watch the years fly by
We can drink enough alcohol to leave the memories of last year behind

Early in the morning as the sun begins to rise
Everyone is leaving so I close my sleepy eyes
If I dream about you, my anxiety will climb
how I wish that New Years Eve could've stopped at 11:59
Track Name: Pigeons
One day not too far gone
My youth has fluttered on
In consequence my innocence died
And then the intellect
That comes from having no respect
Made me see that I'm the wrong kind of...bird

Why are everyone pigeons
as far as the eye can see?
Why are everyone pigeons?
Everyone except for me

They fly from here to there
Taking up space and breathing air and
Shitting on whatever's behind
Some evil scientist
He must have gone and done all this
I wish I understood, but why try?

Rats with wings

He cried "I've got you, Zach"
And tied my hands behind my back
Stuffed my mouth so I couldn't scream
He said, "It seems my evil plan
To turn everyone avian
Will take my self esteem and boost it to the extreme"

And in a rush of wings
The room exploded with birds
He never saw it coming
It all was such a blur
I guess it's not so bad
To be the only human around
I don't have to pay any taxes
And while they're in the sky I can stay here on the ground
