From Antique Records:
‘A Necessary Bummer’ is the debut full-length album from the San Diego based group Sledding With Tigers. The 10-song projects features tales of life, love, and self-loathing as told through the eyes of singer/songwriter Dan Faughdner. His music is not folk enough for folk or punk enough for punk, but it’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face."

Track Name: Never Really Good At Sports
If Self-Loathing was a sport,
then I’d finally be good at a sport
If self-loathing was a sport,
I’d be the goddamn MVP

Someday I will learn to love myself
as much as I love everybody else

I drove you home
in the California rain
And I knew that I’d never
drive you home again

And as I drove myself home
The rain began to slow
Even when your seat is empty
With my thoughts I’m never alone
Track Name: "Oasis" by Wonderwall
I feel guilty when I feel selfish
Well lately I’ve been feeling selfish most of the time
If my thoughts are ugly, does that make me ugly?
Well lately I’ve been feeling that way most of the time


I’m lucky I’m feeling anything at all

You’ll see my flaws when you get closer
so keep your distance and we’ll be just fine
And maybe I should be more open
But when I’m open, my friends runaway

You’re lucky you’re seeing anything at all

Oh man I hate this feeling, but I don’t hate that I’m feeling it at all
Track Name: Not So Body Posi After All
There are too many mirrors around me today
Too many mirrors and too many angles
too many perspectives in this dressing room
I wish I didn’t know that’s I looked like that

There are stores out there that don’t want me
Just like there are people out there that don’t want me
And I am learning to be ok with who I am
And I am learning to be ok with who I’m not going to be

Some day I might lose all this weight
But I will carry it wherever I go
And there will always be a part of me that hates this body
Because I carry it wherever I go

To all my confident friends,
I wish I knew how you did it
I wish I knew I wish I knew I wish I knew
But today, there are too many mirrors around me

And some day I hope we all break them
Some day, I hope we break everything that keeps us from loving ourselves
Track Name: Handshake (Never Trust Relationship Advice From The Lead Singer of a Pop-Punk Band)
I have shaky hands
my hands shake when I’m not even nervous
my hands shake when I’m not even nervous
And it’s so embarassing when we go out to eat

I have shaky hands
I spill my coffee in front of the girl I like
Oh my god, this happens all of the time
‘ll change my shirt, I always keep a spare

And I’ll make excuses
I’ll hold your hand when it’s not even appropriate to hold your hand

You have heavy eyes
You say you’re tired when you’re not even sleepy
I’m pretty sure you’re just tired of me
And that’s alright, so am I
Track Name: National Public Radio
I like to think
if I turn up NPR loud enough
Terry Gross’s voice will drown out
all the voices in my head

If Click and Clack can’t solve my problems
And Ira Glass won’t tell me how to live my live
Well I guess I’ll sit here on the 805
until I figure out the questions in my life

I like to think
if I sit here long enough
in my car
I’ll figure out the source of all
these stupid questions in my head
Track Name: Cuddle Punx (The Theme From ECCO: The Dolphin)
I just want to cuddle with you
Try to watch a movie
let my kisses distract you
I just want to cuddle with you

We’ll have to watch this movie again
‘cause I couldn’t follow the plot
with your hand in my hand
We’ll have to watch this movie again

I wish I could write a song
A song more subtle and smart
But now I’m sitting here
with no idea where to start
Maybe I think you’re pretty
and maybe I think you’re smart
But I’ve never been a subtle man
And tonight, I’m not gonna start
Track Name: The Devil and a California Burrito are Raging Inside Me
All of my problems are
little problems
All of my problems they
don’t compare
But I’m done with feeling bad for
feeling awful
Yeah I’m done with feeling bad
for feeling awful

It’s not healthy to live this way
Keep everything inside ‘til the end of the day
Well that’s how I spent the first twenty years of my life
that the first twenty years I kept it all inside

So maybe now I overshare
and its too much
but I’m better than I was
and I’m not giving up
Track Name: Oh, Right. Damn it.
I know that I shouldn’t say that I
Miss you but I miss you
and I know that I shouldn’t text you
But I’ll be damned if I don’t text you

And I should be over this by now
And I should be over you

Cause I’ve been spending too much time alone
And I’ve been staring at my my
I’ve been thinking about you too much

And I should be over this by now
And I should be over you
Track Name: I Got The Blues Macaroni And Cheese
Rejection is my lonely companion
Well, I’m just sitting here
thinking in my bedroom
Thinking about the things
I could’ve done different
Maybe I shouldn’t have done anything at all

I’m feeling bad for saying that I’m lonely
When I have so many people
who care so much about me
I’ll keep ignoring texts from good friends
asking if I’m ok
What the hell is ok?

Some day I’ll get the hang of it

but until then, I’ll just feel like this
Track Name: That One Limp Bizkit Song
Just one of those days where
every car is a cop car
every road I take I go too far
Everytime I try to write it down,
it sounds over dramatic

I’m sorry that I’m getting you down
I’m sorry that I’m getting you down, dude
But I used to not share at all
So now I’m just sharing it all

Today will be better than yesterday
Today will be better than yesterday
Today will be better than yesterday
And before I sleep, I will make it so
