Track Name: Get It
Do you really think I'm funny or are you just humoring me?
Don't you know I take my jokes very seriously
So I hope you understand when I do not understand
If you're laughing at my words or just at me

'Cause I'm everyone's favorite punch line
And I'm everyone's favorite party trick

Do you really think i'm funny or is it just the end of the night?
What do you think do you think this is just some sort of game?
Aren't you impressed by the integrity of my wit?
Or are you just fooling around

'Cause I'm everyone's favorite punch line
And I'm everyone's favorite party trick
(Knock knock
It off)

I know I'm the biggest joke in this place
But I know better I know you're no better than me
So I will not follow you I've got my own lines to make
This clown would rather end up sad and alone

'Cause I'm nobody's favorite punch line
And I'm nobody's favorite party trick
Track Name: Susie Scratch & Kiss
Susie's got them strong claws
Wants to show em to us cause she don't think we saw
And when she clings to my arm
I know she don't mean no harm

Susie scratch & kisses
I know that she loves me
Makes me feel so special
The way that she treats me
And how can she stay so alive in these times?

Susie's got them strong teeth
She wants to tell us but she can't speak
But Susie understands pain
She'll try to take it away but the scars remain

Susie scratch & kisses
I know that she loves me
Makes me feel so special
The way that she treats me
And if I can say the same of life I'm alright
Track Name: Low One
Low in Barcelona
I can't feel my feet
Don't know where I'm going
Don't know this street

Low in Barcelona
Everyone is happy
Don't know where that light is
Don't know what's wrong with me

And if you'd asked me how I was feeling
I would've said:
No, not today, maybe tomorrow
Track Name: Matchstick Girl
You don't have to say a word
But it might be nice
The silence kills me
Though you'd never think

I am a matchstick girl
There are many others just like me
We burn very bright
And we snap just as clean

We do our job
Yeah we light you up
But after you strike and you take your hit
We go on our way

I am a matchstick girl
We get replaced day by day
People want something
With a little more fuel

And it's a tragic thing
For us to fall in love
'Cause even when we make a match
It never seems to stick
Track Name: Area Code
Many serious things are happening but I can’t deal in a serious way
So instead I’ll shut my eyes and think of something funny to say

Everything in my house is broken, the pool the TV
The record player from my parents’ younger days
I wish I could pull all my hair out and still look pretty
No one would recognize me maybe then they could look me in the eye

How can we stick together if we’re all in different area codes?

Many serious things are happening but I can’t deal in a serious way
So instead I’ll shut my mouth and look like I have nothing to say

Everyone in my house is broken, the cat the area code
No one’s got their head on their shoulders they’re all hanging down low
I wish I could pull all my hair out and use it as a telephone wire
No one would recognize me but at least then they could call me up

Don’t everyone laugh at once now
Will I get the chance to see your laugh lines?
I just want the chance to see your laugh lines

Could you change your landline, I don’t like your area code

Everything in my house is broken we’re all catching colds
No one’s got an area code they’ve all got cell phones
You keep your area code no matter where you go now
Doesn’t that undermine the whole meaning of this song?

I don't know what I’m trying to communicate
I don't know, Walt. I'm trying to commune with Kate.

Can you all tell I love you all in a serious way?
How can I tell you all I love you all in a serious way?
Track Name: Nervous Smile
I can’t stand to see you like that
Seeing you hunched over in my mind makes me hurt
Rubbing your eyes just to see the dark
I’m never gonna let that happen again

I can’t get over your nervous smile
And I see myself loving you for a while

But I can’t control every little thing
And I get so scared sometimes
That I could ever be the reason
What if next time I'm the reason?

I know I can be so full of shit
But I promise you can trust me now that you’ve crossed my heart
I never want to see those bright brown eyes hope to die
So I’m going to make you laugh until I never make you cry
Track Name: Route 7
I was driving east on Route 7
Listening to Kimya Dawson
When I came upon a most peculiar truth
That if I should die
I mean when I die
I would like my coffin to be inlaid with all the things I've said that people thought were funny or could be funny

And my funeral would be a stand-up comedy act
'Cause how absurd is it that I'd ever even lived at all?
And how everything worked out how it did
I can't say if it's good or bad it just is what it is

I kept on driving east
And I knew if I kept on driving east I would eventually hit
The water the wars the lands I didn't know anyone in
But I also knew if I kept on driving east I would eventually
Be back on this same highway
I bet I could say something funny about that too

And if after my death
When you're thinking about me
I mean if you're thinking about me
If you can crack the smallest smile
In the middle of the night
I'll know I've done alright
