Track Name: Acceptionalism
Not an activist
Just an unconscious participator
Masturbator in love with the actress

But not a pacifist
Just a burned out Queen City chicken shit
With a notebook, and nothing to put in it.

Feeling it out, feeling alright, feeling alone.
Till you figure it out, you can call up but you never can go home.

Well just the oven mitts, babe,
we'll make a game of it, convince us we're interested.
Call it love, call it consensual innocence.

But this isn't it, no.
More like coincidence.
The kind you look up, read about on the internet.

Feeling it out, feeling alright, feeling alone.
Till you figure it out, you can call up but you never can go home.

It's not an accident.
Track Name: First Blush
Someday I'll be old enough to wipe the idol clean
Take the invitation and discover what it means
To be in your dirty room
With me, the little spoon
Let confidence consume our afternoon and watch it bloom
Inside our hands

Someday I'll be cold enough to take of all my clothes
Past the point of innocence that every body goes
And all the party kids
Will find out what I did
And ask the question is this just a dream you had to dream
To understand

Someday I'll be out of touch, confused, and worried sick
Things won't be so easy then, decisions not so quick
And all the kids will laugh
And say that I am half
The man I once believed would be the one to reach the sun
On golden plans

Someday I'll be old enough
Someday I'll be cold enough
Someday I'll be out of touch

And inside your dirty room
With me the little spoon
Let confidence consume our afternoon and watch it bloom
Then shower and purfume
Let confidence consume our afternoon
