Track Name: Queen of Crime
Well we tried to move fast but we got a late start
And it was twenty-five past when we got in the car
And by the time we arrived at your place it was dark
I thought I might've been a Neal but I'm a Jack at heart

It's been a couple of years and a couple of days
I shed a couple of tears when we last parted ways
But I've been making a name for myself, anyway
I thought we might've had a deal but you don't ever pay
I thought I might've been a Neal but I'm a runaway

You think you get away with murder just because
Cause no one ever told you no one ever does
And now you're trying to find a fortune in a pile of stones
Now you're counting out the rhythm that you got in your bones

I've been brushing my teeth with a bottle of Jack
And you've been running around and causing heart attacks
And when you told me you wondered if I'm coming back
I thought it might've been for real but I know better than that
I thought I might've been a Neal but I'm a Kerouac

You think you get away with murder just because
Cause no one ever told you no one ever does
And now you're trying to find a fortune in a pile of stones
Now you're counting out the rhythm that you got in your bones
Track Name: Sunburns
I wish I could be the one to ease your pain
I'd lift off all your expectations
And take back all of your mistakes

I could quit your boring job for you
Tell you to come away with me
We'd set off on the road together
And live out all of your dreams

And we'd never be the same
And we'd change our names
And start new lives
In a different state

But you know that it'll never be like that
Cause this is where you'll stay
And I have always had your back
Buried in my blade
I will only let you down
I will only run away

I hope your revelation comes
I hope you step into the sun
I hope you walk across the sand
And finally understand

I hope we meet again someday
I hope you're seeing someone great
I hope you're seeing better days
Since you let me run away
Track Name: I Was In The Car With You
You dug yourself a hole so deep
You think the only way to get out
Is straight down
Everybody's creeping you out
Everybody's taking it out on you

You gave all of your love away
To someone you weren't certain about
So you backed out
He didn't even notice the sound
He didn't even notice the clouds of doubt

And it's easy to see how plans get made
People get beat up and betrayed
It's easy to see how love decays into a fistfight
And it's all because of something you did years ago
Well I can't believe that's so

I was in the car with you
Yeah you were there, and I was too
I saw everything you didn't do
I saw it all

I will come to rescue you
And tell you what is best for you
And tell you that this is not your fault
It is not your fault.
Track Name: Casablanca 2
I knew a girl in ninth grade
She had a lot on her plate
Sports and music and clubs
Raging parties and drugs
That's how it was in those days

I asked her out to the dance
Said it was strictly as friends
I was taking it slow
Cause what else did I know?
But she'd already made plans

With some douchebag
She knew from math class

So I went with a band geek
Who had a big crush on me
She kept on talking about band
But when we finally danced
She had like, seven left feet

I said let's get something to eat
Then I snuck out to the street
Some junior offered me pot
And though it seemed like a lot
I told him, maybe next week

Too embarrassed
To call my parents
I started walking back home yes I did

I won't make that mistake again
I'm gonna tell her how I feel
I ain't no superstitious man
But I looked up at the stars
And I swear they never lined up so straight again

She'd had a pretty rough night
Her date got into a fight
She said he got a bit drunk
And so he threw the first punch
She left without a goodbye

I said I wasn't surprised
Cause he's just that kind of guy
He doesn't care about you
Or anything that you do
To him, you're only a prize

She shrugged her shoulders
The night got colder

So I pulled her in close to me
We hit that upperclassman up for weed
Then we hung out in the park
Even though it was dark
And smoked it under some trees

I said, here's looking at you
I guess that she'd seen Casablanca too
She said, you must remember this
And well a kiss is just a kiss
But that's only half of the truth

Cause there was nothing
Absolutely nothing in this world I'd rather do.
