about

This is an album, full of songs. Not full to the brim, but certainly full enough. Falling somewhere between an EP and a full-length, this is a collection of songs. I hope you like it. If you don't like it, make sure to email me at me@glennbeck.com.

AJ Peacox, rocking the free world on his bass guitar and my friends Ben Levinson, Kelsi Abruzzo, and Ted Gabbard on Group Vocals.

This record was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Ted Gabbard. He is a wonderful and generous man, and you should all say thanks to him. Say thank you.

The cover model is Catherine Vo. She is an Angel, and she plays tennis.
Caitlin VanArsdale took all of the photos for the inner sleeves. She is the prettiest girl in the world, and one day I will marry her. She doesn't know it yet, but she will.

Track Name: Quit Yr Job
Sometimes I want to leave this town
Even though sometimes I love this town
And sometimes I want to quit my job
Even though today I love my job

And travel 'round the world
With just my songs and a guitar
Telling secrets to everybody that I meet

But for now I'm breaking down in shopping malls
and pretending like I don't want to cry
But for now I'm looking at pictures on my wall
and pretending like I don't want to die
Track Name: The Quiet One!
I've come up with every excuse
Tried every trick a boy can use
But now I'm starting to come to terms
With all the lessons I should've learned

Sometimes I think the sun won't shine
If I stay inside
Sometimes I think my heart won't break
If it learns to hide

I've spent too much time apologizing and not enough time trying to change
Track Name: A Floppy Disc Worth Of Song
I've never been in a fight
But I know I've caused bruises
Because all the punches that I've thrown have been emotional abuses

I've never been in a fight
I only hit 'em where it counts
I've been a bully and a hypocrite
And sometimes I can't sleep when I think about it

Sometimes I just can't sleep it off
Track Name: Homeless
I've been feeling lonely
Mistaking it for being ugly
But sometimes my mind can't separate the two

And I've been looking under
Things I should be looking over
and I’m finding things I have been hiding from myself

And there’s something about home
that makes me feel homeless
and there’s about hope
that makes me feel hopeless


AND I KNOW
YES I KNOOOOOW
That someday, I am going to break
Track Name: Fudge And Run
I don't care if you think that I dance weird
And I don't care if I'm dancing to Liz Phair
And I don't care that you're not here

But I care enough to write a song about it
And I care enough to write my thoughts about it

Well there's enough ironic distance between me and things I like
And there's enough ironic distance between me and you
Track Name: (Folk) Up The Punx!
I’m not punk enough for punk
and I’m folk enough for folks
And I sometimes I hide my hurts with dirty jokes
But when we get together I always feel better
It’s the people that sing at shows I like the most
It’s the people that sing in crowds I like the most

Man, I lie everyday,
How you doing? “I’m okay”
So in songs I write the the words that I’m too afraid to say
So I hope you’ll sing along
As I sing this stupid song
Because its people that sing at shows I like the most
Yeah the people that sing in crowds I like the most

So thank you for being my friend
Yes thank you for being a friend
I might not always say it
but tonight, damnit I’ll sing it
Thank you for being my friend
Track Name: I Think I Missed That Day In School Where They Teach You How To Be A Person
A year out of college
a year into debt
And I still haven't moved out of my parents house yet

A year out of college
a year at home
In the house I grew up in, I feel alone

Well I don't know where I'm gonna be
In a few short years or a couple of weeks
But I swear to god, I'll be on my way
It might not happen tomorrow,
But it will some day

I'm always afraid of being found out
As liar and a coward and full of doubt
and when my friends find out, will they all leave
or maybe they'll just realize they're just like me
