Track Name: Best Friend
there's throw up in the trashcan
now the hotel room smells like shit
i bet it was my sister
she could never hold her liquor

dark streets and words we don't understand
you looked at me and said i don't know where i am
and that's when we both knew that it would take knife to cut this apart
it would have to go through my heart

cause i wanna be your best friend
i wanna waste away next to you and get drunk all afternoon
i'll be your best friend
i'll be your best friend
your best friend, your best friend

it's my red wine
it's never having a valentine
it's a ghost screaming irony right before your eyes
it's my selfish thoughts that you feel just the same
it's your nasty remarks and the way you always say my name

late nights spent trying to figure out how we can make this work
yeah we want it all
we want to want something new and improved
we won't settle for this much longer
it's never getting better

that's why i'll be your best friend
i wanna waste away next to you and get high all afternoon
i'll be your best friend
i'll be your best friend
your best friend, your best friend

i just want a best friend
someone i can tell all my secrets to
i know, i know you got them too
i know, i know you got them too
i know, i know you got them too
i know, i know you got them too

we were seeing traces
we couldn't feel our faces
passed out in a taxi cab
then kicked on the pavement
do you remember when we first met?
a craigslist ad that led to your basement
how many open mics will it take until we get something?
this house is falling apart but it's more like a work of art

and maybe one day we'll move out into a big house
with an indoor pool, make our own rules
have statues in the living room
with a big tv so we all can see our faces on mtv
but it still won't beat or be as sweet as the times we spent on colfax street
Track Name: It's Always Sunny In San Diego
nothing
there's nothing new to do or say
there's nothing to tell you
i've been sitting around the house between the kitchen and the couch
it's always sunny in san diego
but this week i've been keeping my curtains so tight

oh i know it's true
i'm blue
no matter what you say you couldn't tell me there's a better way

sunlight
it's burning out my eyes
i'm going back inside until the moonlight
then we'll be howling like wolves playing games, spilling beer through the night
it's always sunny in san diego
but this week i've been keeping my curtains so tight

oh i know it's true
i'm blue
no matter what you say you couldn't tell me there's a better way
so true
so blue
no matter what you say you couldn't tell me there's a better way

don't wanna quit you're a good bad habit
you're a good bad habit
you're a good bad habit
you're a good bad habit
i don't wanna quit

no matter what you say you couldn't tell me there's a better way
so true
so blue
no matter what you say you couldn't tell me there's a better way
Track Name: Just Play It
every time you come over you always get so drunk
i really wish you would slow down so i could catch up
you yell at me to play my songs that you know all the words to
you yell at me when you're sober it's something i've gotten used to
it's okay, i know you need it more than me

but you know that i hate it
but you tell me that my frustration sells
so just play it
come on, sing that one about the water snakes
sing that one about leaving the states

if there's any face to save consider it gone
after this song is over you won't think twice, just move on
you'll go home and hit your bong and drink and pass out watching cops
then wake up in the morning to the ring from your alarm

it's okay, i didn't need it anyway
but you know that i hate it
but you tell me that my frustration sells
so just play it
come on, sing that one about sour cream
you never take me seriously

i'm fucking useless
i've got no friends
no girlfriend
just my band with max and cameron
we got a game plan
slam drunk with crushed beer cans
Track Name: I Do (I Don't)
looking out from the inside i see everything new
looking out from the inside i wanna be with you
and your busy streets, your anarchy
moving my body
can you feel it too?

i do, i do, i do, i do, i do, i do

i just want some attention
you don't give enough to me
i just want some attention
you won't do it for free
with your paper trails, your finances
all nice and neat in your big office

i don't wanna be anything like you, like you, like you

when they stop asking me what i want to be
maybe that would mean i've done something
maybe that would mean i'm okay
but i don't think they see me like that now
i can see they don't like me

well they tell me to believe in something
believe in our god, believe in our god

i don't, i don't, i don't, i don't, i don't
i don't, i don't, i don't, i don't, i don't
Track Name: Colfax
leaving four chicken nuggets in the bag, what the fuck man?
the serving size says five, who the fuck does that?
kids like you who fall asleep on the couch
unintentionally every night then talk about how they don't go out
keep the curtains shut and try not to think about
everyone who's not hanging out with you at your house

turn the music up just a little louder
i can still hear my stomach growling
whiskey sours and morning headaches
one seven five one colfax never giving the neighbors a break

tear the walls down then build it all back
doomed to finish but at point where it's not too bad
you can suck it up or you can move out
look back, think about the story of colfax
when we piled on in and screamed it all out
the chili banditos and their taco punk workout
tattoo it on your thighs then praise it till you die
oh san diego i wanna hear you scream tonight

turn the music up just a little louder
i can still hear my stomach growling
whiskey sours and morning headaches
one seven five one colfax never giving the neighbors a break
one seven five one colfax never giving the neighbors a break
one seven five one colfax never giving the neighbors a break

and maybe one day we'll go on tour when it won't put us flat broke
our last got cancelled cause max got caught smoking dope
will gets in behind the wheel
he turns to me and then he says
"i'm fine i'm chewing bubblegum and i just ate a sandwich"

turn the music up just a little louder
i can still hear my stomach growling
whiskey sours and morning headaches
one seven five one colfax never giving the neighbors a break
one seven five one colfax never giving the neighbors a break
one seven five one colfax never giving the neighbors a break
Track Name: Shed Shows
i've got stories
i'm gonna tell them all to you
because i want to
because i want you to know the truth
but they got bad words
those words that make you seem real angry about everything

hey guys that was one hell of a show
but now your instruments are all over the floor
pick your shit up and move it
we're running on a schedule here

and when things don't go as planned and nobody shows do you quit
or how about when you start to self-doubt and burn everything you write down

fuck it
we'll throw a show here in our garage
invite the whole hood
then watch nobody show up
oh it's so sad
like it really brings me down
and will gets so mad
but in the end we just laugh it out

hey i know you guys never sell your tickets to shows
and this time your bass player bled all over the floor
it was a sight to see
but someone's gotta clean that shit up and that person's me

and when things don't go as planned and nobody shows do you quit
or how about when you start to self-doubt and burn everything you write down

it's really nice to be important, but it's really important to be nice
it's really nice to be important, but it's really important to be nice
it's really nice to be important, but it's really important to be nice
(it's okay i didn't need it anyway, you need it more than me)
it's really nice to be important, but it's really important to be nice
(it's okay i didn't need it anyway, you need it more than me)
it's really nice to be important, but it's really important to be nice
(it's okay i didn't need it anyway, you need it more than me)
it's really nice to be important, but it's really important to be nice
(it's okay i didn't need it anyway, you need it more than me)
Track Name: Tacopunk4life
looking for loose change in every crevice
like an addict but for tacos it's pathetic
being broke has never been so in style
and either has your pessimism and denial
but i won't buy in
simply cause i can't afford it, no i can't afford it

kick me out of the house
throw in some mean words, bring me down
you were always good at that ain't that a fact
whatever works better for you man
that shit just don't work for me, it don't work for me

i never wanted it to end this way
i miss when we would talk shit about our days
i say you've changed, you say i've stayed the same
you've always needed someone to blame
cause nothing's ever your fault
you hate to admit it when you're wrong

i tell myself to shake it off man
shit way worse has happened to me before
taco punk for life
i hope you feel sick every time you see your ankle tattoo
but it still won't come close to how sick i feel about you
about you, about you
Track Name: Loose Thread
i'm just like that loose thread
slowly unraveling your favorite sweater
cut me off i'll just grow back
and you'd wear me out
i'd do the same
i hate throwing out all my old worn clothes away
my friends well they just don't care
buy another one forget it was ever there
but i can't forget, no i won't try
it will always be in the back of my mind

it's only time before i wear out
it's only time before i wear out
i wish you could've stayed together
i wish you could've stayed forever

you kept me warm through the winter
you were perfect even with your broken zipper
my friends well they still don't care at all
buy another, i don't wanna walk away
it's a real fear
it's a real thing that i don't see myself escaping

it's only time before i wear out
it's only time before i wear out
i wish you could've stayed together
i wish you could've stayed forever

it's only time before i wear out
it's only time before i wear out
i wish you could've stayed together
i wish you could've stayed forever
Track Name: Free Spirited Taco Truck
they say california has created a lifestyle
a lifestyle worth living
a lifestyle worth singing about
i tell my friends in other states that they're all missing out
on the infinite blue skies
and the animal fries
and the combo plate number five at sun tacos with guacamole on the side

it's only time before i save up enough
to buy that free spirited taco truck

it's just like in florida
it's just repetition
it's everyone asking me the same questions
like, what about your good friends?
the friends that make you think
the friends that make you strong drinks

oh, i'm telling them all that
it's only time before i save up enough
to buy that free spirited taco truck

i wanna see it come full circle

every time i lay down, i just fall asleep
every time i lay down, i just fall asleep
every time i lay down, i just fall asleep
every time i lay down, i just fall asleep
every time i lay down
every time i lay down
every time i lay down, i don't think
Track Name: I'm Alright (I Think)
your eyes won't stop leaking tonight
and i don't know what to do
smeared make up and quick lips
tell me to leave the room

maybe next time i'll be ready
but for now i'm alright

on tour and cheap whiskey
i'm feeling risky
looking for you in the crowd
i guess i got too excited when i heard you were around

maybe next time i'll be ready
but for now i'm alright

now that we're face to face i don't think you feel the same way
body language and eye movement are telling me not to waste my time
Track Name: I Just Wanna
i just wanna grow my hair out real long
and i just wanna sleep in and quit my job

who says i can't drink beer everyday
i don't wanna do the things you say
no i won't be that
no i won't feel the way that you want me to
no i won't see that
is "i don't want to" enough of an excuse for you?

i just wanna grow my beard out real long
and i just wanna jam in the basement playing loud songs

who says i can't eat tacos everyday
i don't wanna do the things you say
no i won't be that
no i won't feel the way that you want me to
no i won't see that
no i won't listen anymore, i'm through

well i must admit that i don't like it anymore
we all have our reasons and i don't need to hear yours

uno, dos, tres

well i must admit that i don't like it anymore
we all have our problems and we don't have time to listen to yours
we don't have time to listen to yours
we don't have time
i don't like it anymore
