Well, all my time is misdirected And I don't know which way goes through But all I know don't involve you But in my dreams I'm disconnected I lack the courage to follow through But I can't face tomorrow too And I'm not fooling anybody, anybody, anybody I'm not fooling no one but you And I'm not fooling anybody, anybody, anybody I'm not fooling no one but you My mind goes blank, that's never happened I've always faked my way on through A constant struggle not to think or do There's always a reason to be unhappy Even if that's not really true I hate myself, but can't stand to hurt you And I'm not fooling anybody, anybody, anybody I'm not fooling no one but you And I'm not fooling anybody, anybody, anybody I'm not fooling no one but you [Guitar solo] And I'm not fooling anybody, anybody, anybody I'm not fooling no one but you And I'm not fooling anybody, anybody, anybody I'm not fooling no one but you And I'm not fooling anybody, anybody, anybody I'm not fooling no one but you And I'm not fooling anybody

Catalina 02:57
The second single from Cowboy Dinosaur's sophomore release, Catalina trades moody reverie for a healthy dose of galloping guitar and action. Written as a reminder to unwind and destress during socially anxious moments or when life gets too heavy, the majority of the melody was actually part of a dream. Catalina serves as a bit of positive reinforcement to calm down and take things day by day. lyrics In Catalina all the stars shine bright for you But you can't see them, because you're always in your room Well, everyone's figured out how to live life among the crowds So why is it so damn hard for you? There's no consequence, except possibly happiness So calm the fuck down before you die Just keep an open mind This wasn't how life was supposed to be So dry off those tears you can't stop crying You take it all in stride, the curse of being human So pack up those fears and keep them inside Well, everyone's figured out how to live life among the crowds So why is it so damn hard for you? There's no consequence, except possibly happiness So calm the fuck down before you die

Summer's gone, it's more cold than I remember Something's wrong, and I'm not talking about the weather Something changed in about an hour or two Come what may, we do everything together Stop the pain, I'd do anything to save her Something must be done, I could run until my soles leave my shoes And won't you stay with me my friend? Stay here, don't leave me here, just me No, it won't be the same Who's to say it's the end of our adventure? We'll drink champagne, move to Paris, live like rockstars Been around the world, I'll be damned if I can get over you She said "It's too late for my friend. So long, this is the end of my life And I don't need to be saved." Won't you stay? (No, no, no, no) Stay? (No, no, no, no) Stay? (No, no, no, no) Stay? Stay? (No, no, no, no) Stay? (No, no, no, no) Stay? (No, no, no, no) Stay?

And I won't wait To bridge the bay Let the cards fall where they may And I might be ok I am not the one that follows you Even though I need you like I do And I can't wait Until I see your face Ford the fjord Shore to shore Ford the fjord Climb aboard And I won't wait Until the light of day I am not the one that follows you I am not the one that follows you Ford the fjord Shore to shore Ford the fjord Shore to shore Ford the fjord Climb aboard

Donner Party 04:20
Well, I know that there's something wrong You're all alone, and you don't belong I guess it's clear that you're in pain I can see in your eyes "So glad you're here" is all I can lie I can't breathe, when you look at me Well, you're insincere, I can see in your eyes That I can't stay here, but it's too cold outside I never noticed before, by that pile of clothes That there's a fork and a knife I think I should go I can't breathe, when you look at me I've never seen someone so hungry Well, I guess it's clear, from the look in your eyes That I can't stay here, but it's too cold outside I try the door, but it's snowing Down and down it goes I'll sleep with just one eye closed, 'til I finally die

Broken 03:12
Now that I've met you, Well, I've realized you won't compromise But how do I get through? With your hands on your ears, and wool over your eyes Oh, but I can't stop now Oh, when I'm feeling down If I can upset you I can't stand your plan to be undecided But what good can I do? If we're not in sync, then we're still divided The louder the shouting Well, it must be true, or they would be hiding Fuck it, upend it Ride it to the end we're locked hand to hand in Oh, but I can't stop now Oh, when I've broken down Mirror, mirror I can't focus A burning candle wanes As you say your lies out loud Oh, but I can't stop now Oh, when I've broken down Breathe in to keep from crying Now that I've met you How can I get through? If I can upset you He's coming to get you

Not the One 03:53
Headlights, blank stare So cold and so scared Don't know what I've seen Can't move without admitting That I've been thinking a lot about where I've been wondering who I saw What did I do all the times that you didn't love me at all You didn't know me I've been thinking a lot about where I've been wondering who I saw What did I do all the times that you didn't love me at all You didn't know me When I heard you, you were shouting You're not the one, you're not the one When I heard you, you were shouting You're not the one, you're not the one I know I seem to confuse love with need So please forgive me I love you, but I quit Because I've been thinking a lot about where I've been wondering who I saw What did I do all the times that you didn't love me at all You didn't know me I've been thinking a lot about where I've been wondering who I saw What did I do all the times that you didn't love me at all You didn't know me When I heard you, you were shouting You're not the one, you're not the one When I heard you, you were shouting You're not the one, you're not the one When I heard you, you were shouting You're not the one, you're not the one When I heard you, you were shouting You're not the one, you're not the one When I heard you, you were shouting You're not the one, you're not the one

Go to Sleep 03:38
I wake up in the dead of night In the bar you were so tired Now your phone light shines to blue And your yawns sound uninspired And you're all I'll ever need, love But for now just go to sleep But I'm in deep Are you dreaming? Something real? Oh we got a A good thing here, be yourself Go to sleep. Do we got a A big day here, and we got a Something real, be yourself But if all those unmarked sheep Can't bring you to your knees Close your eyes and breathe in deep But for now just go to sleep But I'm in deep Are you dreaming? Something real? Oh we got a A good thing here, be yourself Go to sleep. Do we got a A big day here, and we got a Something real, be yourself Go to sleep Go to sleep Go to sleep

Portland 04:28
It's true the days are short, the nights are long But I'm used to life without sunlight And in truth, I never thought I'd last this long But you're proof that the dawn is worth the fight You hate a little bit of everyone But you take a little piece of their heart And you convince me life is not so bad And you remind me that this world is cruel but I endure it all for you Well, I've lived back and forth, coast to coast And I've moved, and gone from cities to farms But from you I've never felt disconnected And you, I feel you in my heart You hate a little bit of everyone But you take a little piece of their heart And you convince me life is not so bad And you remind me that this world is cruel but I endure it all for you You hate a little bit of everyone But you take a little piece of their heart And you convince me life is not so bad And you remind me that this world is cruel but I endure it all for You hate a little bit of everyone But you take a little piece of their heart And you convince me life is not so bad And you remind me that this world is cruel but I endure it all for you
