Track Name: Wordplay - Super Mega Creepy
Now we’re done talking, you're still leering
And I'm clearly quite uncomfortable
What part of goodbye aren't you hearing?
You're here for business, not pleasure
Get the hell out of my store

You're super mega fucking creepy but you help pay my rent
Bet you think you're being sneaky when you look down my shirt
You're old and hitting on me really
I'm nearly the same age your kid would be if someone had reproduced with you

I can't take being a waitress when you're making me feel weird
What's make-up got to do with nachos
I can't afford to keep working here
Even worse to work the counter when you're stuck in the same place
You can waste another conversation getting in my face

You're super mega fucking creepy but you help pay my rent
Bet you think you're being sneaky when you look down my shirt
You're old and hitting on me really
You're clearly not picking up on my total lack of interest
Track Name: Wordplay - Dumb
Where'd you go
What did you see
How did I know that you'd believe whatever I told you
Lately you've been making me
Feel so nervous I can't sleep
I just watch reruns on TV

And think about how I'm getting old
And I still don't know
I just don't know

How to not be dumb
How to not be stupefied
Like I'm stumbling blind through a maze of my own worst decisions ever
And I can't go back
And I think I've reached a dead end
Cause I'm getting kind of concerned I may be lost forever

Now it's late
And I've been drinking heavy
But I didn't intend to get this wasted again
And don't pretend I wasn't like this when you met me
Its not like you know what's best for me
But what do I know if ya say so
I'll just wait here patiently

And think about how I'm getting old
And I still don't know
I just don't know

How to not be dumb
How to not be stupefied
Like I'm stumbling blind through a maze of my own worst decisions ever
And I can't go back
And I think I've reached a dead end
Cause I'm getting kind of concerned I may be lost forever
Track Name: Reminder - Catfishin'
Rain outside
It's like a symphony
Breaching every noise complaint
I've got the day off with no restraint
I'm lazy and it's my choice

Too much on my plate while I end up waiting
Nothing comes for free (nothing comes for free)
Too much on my plate while I end up waiting
Everyone wants to close the door onto you

My recollection of you is a sharp corner I snag my elbows on
Try and taunt me with girl meets boy
Fall in love travel off happily ever after

Too much on my plate while I end up waiting
Nothing comes for free (nothing comes for free)
Too much on my plate while I end up waiting
Everyone wants to close the door onto you
Nothing comes for free (nothing comes for free)
Everyone wants to close the door onto you
Nothing comes for free
Track Name: Reminder - X (Better Days)
You told me it was over
I didn't listen
Moved on from life to afterlife
Your presence sticks around here

Memories of better days, or were they?
Dispatch my haze, my clouded ways

You told me you loved me
That you'd always stick around
Now you're the one bringing me doubt

I keep going on this way
But you're gone
If a clever metaphor would get you back
I would apologize for the love I lack

Memories of better days, or were they?
Dispatch my haze, my clouded ways
Track Name: Reminder / Wordplay - Fifty Two (digital only)
Common knowledge of common breakthrough
Speak loud but don’t let them hear you
You’re broken down
Lost around
Now tell the dealer you’ll settle on Queen of Hearts
And Joker cards

I know that you’d be stoked if I worked 12 hours a day
And I had a giant house along the bay
I would instigate the personally vindicated thoughts in your brain
You could try...

You’re broken down
Lost around
Now tell the dealer you’ll settle on Queen of Hearts
And Joker cards

Wishes flying by
I’ll stand my ground on an armchair
Rock back and forth until your thoughts keep pokin’
I’ll still be saying “I don’t care”
I’ll still be saying “I don’t care”

For what its worth
An empty house, suburban lives, you’re wife & spouse
I’ve seen them all go fossilized and pay the expensive cars you drive

You’re broken down
Lost around
Now tell the dealer you’ll settle on Queen of Hearts
And Joker cards

Suburban lives, you’re wife & spouse
I’ve seen them all go fossilized and pay the expensive cars you drive
