Track Name: Grizzly Bear
If you're walking in the woods
Out there by yourself
Bring your gun
'cause if you see one
You cannot run
You will be done
No it won't be fun
You will be done

They are 10 feet tall
With gigantic claws
and 600 pounds
42 sharp teeth
Grizzly Bears

Oh and they can run
35 miles per hour
And they eat their young
Yes they'll eat you, too
Grizzly Bears

Good luck with whistles
Good luck with chemicals
Good luck with putting your food away
And avoiding their cubs
If there's little food
And you are near
Now you're the food
There should be fear

They are 10 feet tall
With gigantic claws
and 600 pounds
42 sharp teeth
Grizzly Bears

Oh and they can run
35 miles per hour
And they eat their young
Yes they'll eat you, too
Grizzly Bears
Track Name: Stop Comparing, I'm Wearing Myself Out
I want to be like the really cool people in the IKEA catalog
They're so assured, so happy, so trendy, so cosmopolitan
I want to rise until I hit the ceiling
I want to fall but enjoy the feeling
I want a Lexus in my driveway for Christmas with a bow on top of it
I'll drive it up and down my gentrified neighborhood, I'll show it off a bit
I want to be admired and respected
I think I'll buy power and get elected

Stop comparing
I think I'm wearing myself out
Stop comparing
I think I'm wearing myself out
Stop comparing yourself to others

It seems that everyone is doing much better than me on social media
They're getting married, becoming doctors, even paying off their student loan debt
Today I changed 11 diapers
And I tried to dust the ceiling
I'm so impressed that the human race just continues to surpass me
I better get on the ball, they're so fast, they might just lap me
I need to find a cure for cancer
It's time that I came up with the answer

Stop comparing
I think I'm wearing myself out
Stop comparing
I think I'm wearing myself out
Stop comparing yourself to others
Track Name: Daniel's Song
No one seemed to understand you
We'd pretend, but didn't have a clue
Maybe you were on a different level
but probably you were just as lost as all of us
Maybe it was just me
Maybe it was just me
I know few seemed to respect you
Some pretended, but they didn't get you
Maybe that's really what you wanted
but probably you felt worthless like many of us
Maybe it was just me
Maybe it was just me

I know it sounds cliche
but you made a difference every day

No one seemed to understand it
Didn't pretend, didn't know what to do
Maybe the world really needs you
But probably the world wasn't ready for you
Maybe it was just me
Maybe it was just me
I know that many respect you
You pretended, but did you realize it?
I don't know what you really wanted
other than thrive, other than let your soul shine
other than let your soul shine
other than let your soul shine
Maybe it was all of us
Maybe it was all of us

I know it sounds cliche
but you made a difference every day
Track Name: Pretending
Superman, I bet you could kick his butt
The President, you can speak much better than him
You doubt yourself, I doubt you know, that everyone else, doubts himself
'cause everyone you know
is pretending

That CEO, made billions with one lucky choice
George Washington, was just at the right place at the right time
You doubt yourself, I doubt you know, that everyone else, doubts himself
'cause everyone you know
is pretending

He's in charge, just because no one stepped up
But don't you know, that you are the lucky one
"I can't do this," you say to yourself everyday
But did you know that everyone else says the exact same thing
'cause everyone you know
is pretending
Track Name: Don't You Ever Talk Politics With Your Family
You can talk about the weather
and the birds and the bees
You can talk about your job
and maybe grandma's knees
You can talk about food
Oh it tastes so good
But there's one subject
Well you never should!
Don't you ever ever ever ever ever talk politics with your family
You can talk about how
you all don't talk anymore
You can talk about the game
Ok what's the score?
You could say meaningless things
Like "have a good day."
You could even bring up Jesus
and I'm sure it'd be ok
but don't you ever ever ever ever ever talk politics with your family
It's not a good idea
Someone might just get shot
The best case scenario
just might be estrangement
so don't you ever ever ever ever ever talk politics with your family
Track Name: Everyone and Everything Goes On Without You
Going through life always looking forward to the next thing to worry about
Getting things done
but yet you are not satisfied
You don't know where to go next
It seems that
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you

Why does it matter if it is perfect if it's only temporary?
Looking through the telescope is why you feel so darn insignificant
Everyone and everything
Everyone and everything
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you

You say it's pointless 'cause you have no effect you don't want to get out of bed
Suddenly you realize you're wrong because you love others and they love you too
It doesn't matter that
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
Everyone and everything go on without you
