about

All the songs on this album were written by Max Trainor, (except for i think you were in my profile picture once, that is a Modern Baseball song) starting in October of 2014 and finishing in September of 2015. The album was recorded over a three month process from June 2015 to September 2015. All sounds by Max Trainor. This album was produced and mixed by Max Trainor on location in my bedroom. The album cover was photographed and edited by myself and Becca Trainor (my sister), with additional design inputs from Kiel Koontz and Meredith Jarvis. The album on the cover is Trouble Will Find Me by The National (check it out its good).

I would like to thank everyone who ever gave me an opinion on my music and these people in particular:

My Mom, Dad, and Sister- for putting up with the noise and presenting a mostly unbiased ear
Jesse Ericksen- For being a great friend and letting me "baby-sit" your bass guitar
My friends- who suffered through many many early versions of songs
Those who inspired these songs- You kept me up at night and made me think

Again, Thanks

Track Name: alrightgreatgoodfine
i am not a fan of funerals or weddings
because essentially they are the same thing
it's not for the happy couple or the rotting corpse
it's for the people who feel happy, they don't have it worse
am i cynic, because i'm a cynic or because i's easy
do i feel sad because i'm sad or because it's interesting
it's not upsetting
but it's the truth, and only the truth

Chorus:
i am a little more than concerned for you mental well being
maybe this is how every teenager is meant to be feeling
i'm alright great good i'm fine
i'm alright great good i'm fine

i have this dream that you and me were in a jail cell and the only way out is to use a gun
but i can't bring myself to do it after you said "max i'm done i'm done"
i pulled you from the bridge
every single time
my dreams are what's troubling me that's why i can't get sleep
i kept those stupid shoes i'd like to think it makes me deep
i just want an answer
and that's enough

Chorus
Track Name: silver screen liar
i'd like to think that i can go deeper
than your average ordinary teenager
but i
am a silver screen
liar

cuz everday your average ordinary teenager
plunges deeper and deeper into the thought
that they will have
their very own sitcom
life is not a movie or a tv show
its not a comic book or a webcast so
lets be alright with no plo twist tonight

cuz i as your average ordinary teenager
would like to state that i probably couldn't take
the thought
of someone controlling

my plot line

cuz i am your average ordinary teenager
and that makes me extraordinarily good
at being a human
yeah i am alright yeah i am just fine
so lets be alright just for tonight
i'll save the lies
for tomorrow

life is not extraordinary
no dear it's quite
the contrary
it's the places you go the people you meet
the hearts that you break the love that you seek
and you can see
how beautiful it can be

i am your average ordinary teenager
and that makes me extraordinarily good
at being a human
yeah i am alright yeah i am just fine
so lets be alright just for tonight
i'll save the lies for tomorrow

yeah i
am a silver screen
liar
Track Name: home in the head
you were the catalyst i was the enzyme
breaking me down one chemical process at a time
a dopamine water slide
i was a tidied up stain free motel room
just before i met you
and you were the first traveler to
wreck my room
you were a stop light under the moonlight
i wasn't licensed to drive
was waitin on you, i just drove on through and caused
quite a stie

cuz you're the first one at the door at night and you're the second of us to leave
i thought of you and the things you do and
how i might've chaned

there's a home in my head
you visit frequently
i visit frequently
there's a home in my head
it's gettin crowded now
gettin crowded

she was a tower
she was a gold dress
she was a fire
she's just a plain text
they were a horn line they were a shakespeare quote
they're just a puff of smoke
my thoughts are the monster my thoughts are the killer
my thoughts use a crappy filter
they make me wanna say
things didn't go my way today

cuz they're the first ones at the door at night
and they're the last of us to leave
i thought of them and everything i've said
and it's hard to take it all in
cuz they're the first ones at the door at night
and my god they never leave
i thought of you and those things you do and
what if you never leave

they're always at the door

there's a home in my head
you visit frequently
i visit frequently
there's a home in my head
its gettin quiet now
its gettin quiet
Track Name: an insomniac's lullaby
why sleep, when there's so much fun to be had
my brain seems to think, that we could run all the way to you and back

do do do's

honestly i don't know why you'd every want to leave
honestly the caffeine, probably doesn't help
and honestly i'm to tired,
to sleep
Track Name: a song for a dark place
thinkin bout movies supposed to think in real life
thought about those kids killin them self
maybe they know somethin we don't know
maybe the show somethin we're afraid to show
but i, seem to have it all wrong
none of those movies
are about
kids killin them self
all of those movies
are about
a light switch
yeah a light switch

i can hear the sharks
i can taste the blood
i can smell the fear
it's comin for me dear
comin for me

those two guys
whom i admired
found ways to expire
at the tip of a needle
and i am afraid yes i am afraid
that any day will be my
twenty seven day

i can feel the dark
suffocate my lungs
and i, am afraid
yes i
Track Name: my shoes
well you got the good news
and i got used
a promise to stay away
broken like the calm of day
wouldn't you say

well worn shoes of mine
friends weathered by the time
regret finds me in a funny way
a broken girl
a million dollar place
and i like to think that i
had a part
in putting back that heart
and just when it seemed like my life
was easy to loose

my shoes tore in two

well you got the surprise
and i got opened eyes
a gloomy type kid
had his life changed
with a single move of the head

well worn shoes of mine
friends weathered by the time
regret finds me in a funny place
cute as hell
and great music taste
and i know now
that it's all on me
you're still in my dreams
and just when it seemed
like, to much to bear

my shoes began to tear
Track Name: rain/remind me
what if we never had to be this way
what if we could change
it was sunny in the morning
but the clouds they always came

and it rained
oh how it rained

and it rained on the eiffel tower
when i let you step away
on that fateful day when my
my thoughts were swayed

and it rained on the roof of the high school during
homecoming day
when i
at your touch
feel to my knees

and it rained
Track Name: profesional whining and procrastination is a hearty business
and the sky
i presume
is still the same sad shade of blue
and i will be alright
i know i've said those words before
and i know
they've been little more than a metaphor
but tonight in a sick and twisted sense
i mean them

and i want to be strong
without my right hand thoughts
and tonight i'll be alright
just be alright

because it's best case scenario
worst case mind
i'm a pessimist don't you know
it's worst case scenario
best case mind
i' m whiner don't you know
worst case scenario
best case mind
we were beautiful don't you know
worst case scenario
best case mind
i simply
refuse
to go
Track Name: a truly happy highschooler (demo)
it's an anniversary
but not one i'm proud of
and she says max i think i'll stay here forever
and i'll stay the same
no matter how many times i say i'll change
mom please don't be so
disappointed

i don't decide
no i never decide
i'll just be where they want me to be
for the rest of my life
when i come through
yeah when they find me
i'll be long long gone
right where they want me
oh god
