I used to try to make This like job for the day With deadlines and task lists And promo highs was the pay Those days are gone But I know how we’ll move on These guys were a means to an end These times I had a goal in my head Numbers and eyes And how they’d like the size Gave me more of a rise Than making sure it was right Now I’ll take all year Or just a day if we like what we hear These guys were a means to an end These times I had a goal in my head Now they fill a space so precious We’ll find weekends to the end It’s not too late To keep working late And getting a… It’ll always come as a thrill To walk in when it’s filled Small quick tips of the swill And get up there and just kill These guys bring it to the end These times we’ve got a goal in our heads Now they mean more in the same room These ties brought us all an odd friend

Offer 03:31
Is it even real? I barely hear that sound My name is called Then I come around Wake me up Take me up on my offer I’ll keep ‘em hushed while you sleep Is it my turn? I thought it was just my turn Why haven’t I learned to shut it off after three and not get burned Wake me up Take me up on my offer I’ll keep ‘em hushed while you sleep I’ll go downstairs and be the one that they bother I got this one, it’s all me Every other day Pillow over head I’ll take one for our team Stay honey, stay in bed

Take Time 03:54
Hours on the train listening to drivel I’m sitting right here, put your head on a swivel It’s not the way that they say certain words It’s not the reasons that sound so absurd Maybe it’s all of of days that have passed I think it happened everywhere fast Meaningless time, empty hours With all the noise, this space should be ours Just wait…until you have more to raise Just take…your time until those days "How many horsepower is that bad boy?" "What’re the specs on that little toy?" "Who’s your guy who can take care of this thing?" "Ooh we can’t wait, what should we bring?"
 I need the get the fuck out of dodge Pack up my gear, I miss the smell of that garage Not who they root for that drives me to drink Not how they say my favorites stink Even with how this looks just like my home Even with how my my brood loves to roam

Development 03:48
You wanted and you wanted In the way, in the way that you planned And your mother and your father had no say, how you’d land To ride every signpost like a wave towards the sand It feels as foreign as outer space What’s at hand A forecast before the storm Licked finger in the air The two of us are keeping this development warm I won’t know till I know that face, face feet and hands It’s hard not to focus on myself on myself and who I am Lost outside the limelight but I understand I imagine this is how it finally feels to be a man A forecast before the storm Licked finger in the air The two of us are keeping this development warm

I lay on my belly Make sure it's not gonna fall Take pictures of my behind It never gets old A coffee can top covered in glue A piece of paper with a child's hand run out of room Pins to form the spokes of the wheel I love you mom & dad Scratch my head And sing down on my hair Tell me stories by the fireplace You're right there Sitting at the top of the stairs We waited for the signal Not much sleep after making fart sounds I can't wait to go see it all! Scratch my head And sing down on my hair Tell me stories by the fireplace You're right there A extra heavy breakfast Tossled hair and pajama feet A pizza made of chocolate and cherries But I miss you being there the most Scratch my head And sing down on my hair Tell me stories by the fireplace You're right there
