Track Name: Who Cares
Capo 7th
C, G, Am, F

Who cares how much money I'll have when I die
Who cares if my house reaches into the sky
Who cares, who cares, cuz I surely don't

I don't want a big house if I only need one bed
I don't want a nice car, cuz I know I'll wreck it
I don't want to take more than I truly ever need
Why do you think you do, do you need more than me

I don't think I'll understand why it's important to you
To be better than others, do you think that it's true
Because we both live and die, we both laugh and cry
And your imaginary numbers don't mean a thing tonight

Who cares how much money I'll have when I die
Who cares if my house reaches into the sky
Who cares, who cares, cuz I surely don't
It's not worth it to me if other people are broke

I'm not trying the be the best in the world
No I'm not trying to be the prettiest girl
No I'm not trying to be any better than you
Because I know that I'm not and you're important too

You can't have the rich without the poor to compare
And you can't push them down and then tell them that it's fair
That it's only their fault they were born into this
With no resources in sight to help them out of it

Even free speech isn't as free as it seems
Cuz my boss has more freedom to express himself than me
You can't change someone's life when you question their experience
When we've got policies built upon intolerance

Who's bright idea was it to turn life into a race
Because that means you have a first and last place
Do you need to be the best for you to be content
Does it make you feel good to know that I can't pay my rent

I don't think it's very fair to attempt to place the blame
On the people getting fucked over day after day
Why do you act like you're better than them
Because you have a big house and they don't even have a shed

Who cares how much money I'll have when I die
Who cares if my house reaches into the sky
Who cares, who cares, cuz I surely don't
It's not worth it to me if other people are broke

I'm not trying the be the best in the world
No I'm not trying to be the prettiest girl
No I'm not trying to be any better than you
Because I know that I'm not and you're important too
Track Name: I Fell Asleep
C, Am, F, C

I don't bottle up my feelings
I pour them in a glass
And then I throw them at the wall
And if it makes a hole
Then maybe I'll get out
This box does more damage
Than a bottle ever did

I don't drink as much
As my songs would have you think
I don't try to dwell
On the past or the future
Because living in the moment
Always did the best for me
And I'm just trying to stay alive

I hope I finish this song
Before I fall asleep
And all of my thoughts
Get lost in my dreams
I wish I could tell you
How I truly feel
I wish I already knew
How demons are killed
Track Name: Why Can't I Be A Kid Again? (Feat. Matt Pless)
F, Am7, C7, C

The day finally came when I am no longer excited by snow
Am I too down or have I just grown
If getting older means getting somber
Then I don't want to live any longer

I've seen so much that I can't turn away
I've heard so much that there is no escape
These people that cry about all of their pain
The people that die day after day

Why have you chosen to close your eyes
To the pain of the people who you despise
Why have you chosen to kick them down
To hold yourself up as some sort of crown

I don't understand why you think
That all these people fail cuz they're weak
That it's not the system's fault
That they fall asleep and never wake

Why do you think that people deserve to die
That they must have a certain amount of money to survive
Well I don't think that's fucking right
It's getting too expensive to stay alive
