Track Name: This Sitch Honks
I was supposed to tour with my good friend James Ikeda
and then his car blew up in Altoona Pennsylvania.
So here is this dumb ep of some songs in standard tuning
that I was gonna play before James’s dumb car was ruined
but it’s cool, here are those tunes
Track Name: No Need To Wonder Why
they say your brain is like a shovel c f c
the more you dig the more gets found g7 c
well now my brain gets me in trouble f c
it digs me right into the ground c g7 c
oh don’t you worry about the devil f c
because he’s right here by my side g7 c
he tells me that I’m on the level f c
there’s no need to run and hide g7 c
don’t ask no questions that i can’t answer c f c
because i’ll fill you up with lies g7 c
just ask me “darling, are you in peril?” f c
i’ll answer sweetly “not tonight” g7 c
don’t you get red all in your face now c f c
don’t drink so much that you could die g7 c
i like my whiskey like i like heaven f c
just a taste would be alright g7 c
oh don’t you worry about the devil f c
because he’s right here by my side g7 c
he tells me that I’m on the level f c
there’s no need to run and hide g7 c

Track Name: You Just Get Older
A room full of people reluctantly put up hands when you ask if they like folk punk c f c am
You sing defiance Ohio and you see it makes them smile but you feel kinda empty about it c f c am
Is this what growing up means, detachment from the things you loved? g am
A shield of irony protects your ego c f
from the weight of disappointment g f
now c f c am c f am g f c g f
you sit and watch the world go by c
and maybe try to cry a bit f
but nothings coming and you’re sick of trying am g f
your mother calls you up and you’re too drunk to give a fuck c f
you let it go to voicemail am g f
she tells you “you had a chance to change this place am c
you have a chance to change your life now, f g
but you continue to move on and you’re growing old so young c g am f
at least give me a chance to talk it through” am g f
but you don’t know what you do am g f
no you’ll never think this through c g f
you just get older c
Track Name: I can't come up with a name for this one but it's one of the only genuine songs I've ever written
Little jokes about death turn into full fledged freak outs
no concealing morbid thoughts that cloud my mind
and I'm reeling from the thought that you could be gone completely in an instant
and leave an incomplete me //
so lets talk about you and me and our possible future
are we gonna dance are we gonna keep our sense of humor
i want to see your face under a veil and when you fail
i’ll drive the four hours to burlington to fail with you //
cause there's nothing that compares to
an evening with you
and the bare truth
is that I couldn't bear to
spend another minute alone
i'm not prepared to //
yeah and I can't fight the feeling
that we're constantly healing
old wounds and soon we'll be fighting
for the right
to each other's nights
yeah I bet we'll stay together
until it feels like forever
and after we've weathered
all the storms
we'll still come back for more //
and nothing quite compares to
an evening with you
and the bare truth
is that I couldn't bear to
spend another minute alone
i'm not prepared to
Track Name: It's Cool
I know we're ten years out of high school
But the truth is that I miss you
The way you always were so real with me
you had no clue, I was always just a stranger to you
Now I'm moving into Boston and I'm simply terrified
Will I lose myself in whiskey or a haze of static pride
I know I'm stubborn to hold on to all the feelings of the past
But these feelings are so fleeting so I try to make them last
Because soon all of our memories of our high school will be fading
And I'll just be a face that you erase and never dated
I guess that's cool, but I'll always think about you, I hope that's cool
I hope you’re doing well. I know it seems that way online but you can never tell
