Track Name: Growing Up Sucks (But Being Able to Buy Beer is Sweet)
There was a time when I was young
I found amazement in the setting sun
It wasn't long before that died
I grew up and i got off that ride
And quickly realized that I'd rather die

Times change and I changed too
We all went down different avenues
All the streets all look the same
Even have the same old names
New faces line the street,
New faces for me to meet

Growing up really sucks
When you forget who you are
Growing up really sucks
When you give up everything
Growing up really sucks
When you give up everything
Growing up really sucks
When you forget who you are

So don't you let go
Don't you grow old
Don't you let go
Don't you grow old
Don't you ever,ever grow cold
Don't you let go

Grab your friends and sing out loud
That's what this is all about
Go ahead and drink a beer
Relax you're in the clear
You've got nothing left to lose
But so much more to do

Growing up really sucks
When you forget who you are
Growing up really sucks
When you give up everything
Growing up really sucks
When you give up everything
Growing up really sucks
When you forget who you are

So don't you let go
Don't you grow old
Don't you let go
Don't you grow old
Don't you ever, ever grow cold
Don't you let go
Don't you grow cold
Never grow old
Track Name: South Korean Honey Bee
Where could you be,
My sweet honey bee?
These days are no longer electric without you
Those days
Those tentacle days
Might as well be on the rings of mars

Da da da da da da da....

This glass of appleton
Will leave me feeling so greatly alone
And the ghost of what we had
Will slowly start to show

Da da da da da da da....

When you come home
We will throw a landing party for you
Maybe a family picnic too
As long as we can throw some shoes
Track Name: Damn, That's Soda Pressing
It's safe to say that you're long gone
It breaks me down in the worst way
Time goes by and I stay alone
And miserable, every day

Once again, we give into our trends
Fall apart, rebuild again

Time goes by and I don't know why
I can't forget a god damn thing
The way you smelled, the way I felt,
The day you walked away from me
I'm incomplete

Once again, we give into our trends
Fall apart, rebuild again

I know that this could be the end
of you and me, at least temporarily
I know I sure will try
to keep you locked in heart, safe inside
Deep inside of my chest is where you'll stay
Until I pass away from the anxiety
Deep in my chest is where you'll stay (stay)

Once again, we give into our trends
Fall apart, rebuild again

Years go by, no matter how hard I try
to light the flame, I stay the same
To feel the touch I miss so much,
The flame goes out, I'll have my doubts

Once again, we give into our trends
Fall apart, rebuild again
Track Name: Always a Horowitz, Never a Hogan
Thrown back and forth,
Not knowing which way is up;
Power bombs can't keep me down.
Throw me in the air,
Throw me to the ground,
I know where I'm going to land.

I know it seems dark,
But that's the way my life turns out.
But I know one day, I'll see the lights.

Never giving up, never going to win
Always a Horowitz, never a Hogan
Never giving up, never going to win
Always a Horowitz, never a Hogan

Give me a win,
Somehow, some way
I know I can be much more.
A champion,
A superstar,
So much more than I am.

I know it seems dark,
But that's the way my life turns out.
But I know one day, I'll see the lights.

Never giving up, never going to win
Always a Horowitz, never a Hogan
Never giving up, never going to win
Always a Horowitz, never a Hogan

Tell me how I can put you over
When I was never on top to begin with.
