  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    I asked you how you wanted "Minor Fits," and some of you said "on CD," so here it is. Who am I to judge?

    It'll be in a white sleeve, with the "Minor Fits" sticker included. It also has a digital booklet and a bonus track. Shh.

    I was going to place the sticker on the sleeve, but thought I'd give you the option to put it elsewhere.

    Signature will be on the CD itself.

Whatever you’re thinking Can never see the light Whatever just happened Bury it deep and out of sight You better go your way I better go mine Find me when your time is wearing thin I’ll find you when my sinking ship comes in If only we’d listened Where would we be tonight If things had been different We could have done all right But who knows what might be coming Down the line Maybe it’s easy for me to say From so far away Maybe it’s over before you know You were never alone Anyway

Trusted 04:01
Did you know You tell a lot and never show You talk too fast and listen way too slow Did you know Are you mad The shiny things you never had It’s a drug, and it’s easy to go bad bad bad Are you mad And I wonder how you ever got so angry The gratitude you missed with your swinging wild fist You’ll take my time enough to finally blame me For the moment we first kissed and I wound up on your list Of the people you never really trusted Do you care The box you’re in is made of air Nothing real ever really told you life was fair Do you care And I wonder how we ever get so blinded By what we think we need, what it looks like to succeed But do you even want to be reminded That no matter what the speed, you’re not close to breaking free From the people you never really trusted Line ‘em up against the wall And tell everybody else for once and for all you know Your secret’s safe with someone new If only you could hold on to the strength you need To truly close your eyes Do you doubt That have yet to figure out The time we have is running out And I wonder where I’ll be the day you get it That everything you see is all you let yourself believe And will I know if you had grown up to regret it And will this moment be something I can still retrieve From the people you never really trusted

You are what you are You're like a car that's fun to drive But when the highway comes alive You start to shake Like the wheels are falling off And we'll both end up in a ditch But I can't bitch about what you were built to take You never lied Some gifts never shine as bright As they do when they're wrapped up tight And no one's torn the paper yet The candle smoke's still hanging in the air The cake's not cut And all the writing still makes sense And all the wishes might come true That's what I thought About you But that's not your fault I don't know what I'm thinking To be acting disappointed I've been waiting for a dog to climb a tree So why take it hard and kick myself When years start falling off the shelf And all that dog can do is stare at me Like no one died The good news is I'm still alive I guess I figured out how to survive I will survive The more I see the less I've seen It's good or bad or just a dream Where you know everything I mean I open up my eyes And there you are

The Arecibo 02:38
She said "I don't like to waste my time but you seem teachable Half-open mind, or at least one that's reachable Just 'cause I'm smiling doesn't mean that I'm having fun but Don't think I go around showing just anyone The Arecibo Come on inside The Arecibo Come on and go for a ride Ride Wanna go for a ride Wanna go for a When opportunity knocks Get the door Get it high Get it down on your waterbed at your pied a terre in Bed Stuy Fate all depends upon who blew the dice you throw but Even the devil learned from someone who knows

The car to the airport To the bar I'll be there for Just enough time Just enough time Guitar in a hard case With scars from a rat race Erasing my mind Erasing my mind It's all that I asked for My heroes did much more Most of them died on the road In buses and planes On drugs or in flames Their suit jackets hang In the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame And nobody bats an eye And I never understood why The sound all around me The silence surrounds me I know how it goes I know how it goes It goes "How you all feeling I said how you all feeling" Maybe I know Maybe I know But life is in motion To stop is to roll in Whatever hole in the ground In whatever dust bowl town I know how it goes I know how it goes

I know your voice I remember your number I remember some other things you said to me How could I forget It wasn't my choice But I'm a survivor I've even had minor fits of happiness Sometimes they last a while Still in the neighborhood, well imagine that Your mom and dad are good, well imagine that You've gotta go I know Why do you call And ask how I'm feeling Don't you know how I'm feeling by now I stare at the wall And up at the ceiling You could say I've been dealing If that helps you out Memory lane I want to set it on fire I want to build something higher than we ever had And stop feeling so ashamed That it's taken so long But at least you were worth it You were so close to perfect And yet so far away Your brother is making good, well imagine that Moving to Hollywood, well imagine that You never know I know Here's a little twist Pretend I don't exist And if I want to talk, I'll talk But I don't want to talk now I want to get through this somehow I need a little more time A little more time So much misunderstood, imagine that It worked out the way it should, imagine that You've gotta go
8.
I'm so tired Of being tired of being worried About being too tired To get everything I want to get done Done And have a little something that I used to call fun Fun with my eyes closed Wind in the trees A buzz and a breeze Dreaming is free you know But when I'm so close I can almost touch it I gotta chuck it in the Fuck-It Bucket 'Cause there's money, there's time And there's sweet peace of mind But you can only have two You've got to leave the other one behind It's funny But it's really only kind of funny When the universal joke's on you Wake up, straight up decide What it's gonna be Money, time, or peace of mind It goes too fast It costs too much And when I stop and smell the roses I spend a week catching up The days are never long enough The coffee's never strong enough And I just want to make enough In a short enough time To get both days of the weekend To try and unwind And remember we're lucky for what we've got If it's enough to get by, that's a hell of a lot Whatcha gonna do When you see the truth Staring straight back at you

Going My Way 02:38
Born no one Born nowhere With miles to go Born early Born late With so little to show If time couldn't heal it What can I say I lived tired I lived restless My hands in a fist And I ran them Along ancient scars On her wrists If she couldn't feel it What can I say I wish you were here And going my way I died As we all do I died as I lived Stepping over The bodies I meant to forgive If fate couldn't seal it What can I say I wish you were here And going my way
10.
When it comes to an end I'll take all I can spend And buy a few rounds For all my new friends We'll drink till we drop We'll cry till we stop We'll sing till we're no longer scared of the clock Here's to the end of the world Drink up with your eyes open wide Here's to the end of the world I'll see you on the other side From the edge of my chair I'll agree it's unfair And wonder aloud If somewhere out there Is a civilization That can save us tonight If they came here in peace Would we win in a fight Will Jesus arrive (he's coming this time) Will he do any better (he's doing just fine) With so much of our lives spent so torn apart We're all going through this one Together
