Track Name: Narcolepsy (live)
When I'm walking I feel like I'm falling
I do all I can do to keep from falling
I've been getting to sleep by losing days
I find that this is just one of my old ways

My brain is moving too fast in my head
But when it's time to get up, I stay in bed
I feel myself leave from my body
But I don't see it at all I see nobody

I'm grinding my teeth on the ways in which I dream
And I can't speak in the ways in which I mean

There is starlight like water in my eyes
When I wake up from sleep I rub my eyes
I feel myself leave from my body
But I don't see it at all I see nobody

I'm grinding my teeth on the ways in which I dream
And I can't speak in the ways in which I mean

When I'm walking I feel like I'm falling
I do all I can do to keep from falling
I've been getting to sleep by losing days
I find that this is just one of my old ways

I'm grinding my teeth on the ways in which I dream
And I can't speak in the ways in which I mean

I'm grinding my teeth
I'm grinding my teeth
I'm grinding my teeth
I'm grinding my teeth
Track Name: Hometown (live)
i’m ashamed to answer questions
oh, what do you do again?
are you single, still in school?
we weren’t even good friends

so stop asking these questions
you wouldn’t know what to say
if i really told you all about me
and how i live from day to day

you don’t know me anymore
and i feel so out of touch

cause in your hometown they know your birth name
and you can’t stay no you can’t stay no you can’t say no you can’t stay
in your hometown they know your birth name
and you can’t go you can’t go no you can’t go no you can’t go

so here’s a twenty something anthem
for all my twenty something friends
about the times you go home to find
that you can’t make amends

cause i finally made it here
i made it through the years
i fell apart and changed my name
i cut my hair and went insane

you don’t know me anymore
And I feel so out of touch

cause in your hometown they know your birth name
and you can’t stay no you can’t stay no you can’t say no you can’t stay
in your hometown they know your birth name
and you can’t go you can’t go no you can’t go no you can’t go
