These songs are the results of some jams between Kyle, Connor, and Brock in the summer of 2016. We wanted to do something different than the other projects that we were in. Something that had no rules, no stress, and no bullshit. Just a project that we could get together a few times a week and have fun writing music. That is Half Boy Scout and we hope you enjoy this record.

MAJOR SHOUTOUTS TO Brock's Mom, Michael Briggs, 1919 Hemphill, Weed, A beautiful girl I (Kyle) met the Vans store that summer, Mario Cart, Madi C., Regina, Lily and Santiago, the Racetrac in Azle, etc.

Track Name: Freestyle
You and me being alone
That's when I feel most at home
But where are you now
It already feels like you’re in a different time zone

You and me being alone
That's when I feel most at home
Because I'm tired of feeling alone
I'm feeling better now

You and me being alone
A starry night and your cell phone
I might spend time wondering where you are
Because thats where I feel the most at

You an me being alone
That's when I feel most at home
Because I'm tired of feeling alone
I feel better now

But you never called me back.
Track Name: Donald Trump is a Shapeshifting Lizard
I know I know
There's things I can't control
Things I don't know, things I never really knew
This world is so fucked because of you
I'll never know, FUCK YOU!

*improvisatory screaming*
Track Name: 728
A White House built by hand
On High Crest street
Small town with nothing much to see

We meet up
Have a couple beers and
Discuss nothing
Over cigarettes
Then JAM

Now there’s boxes on the floor and
People are walking through the door
Don’t forget
When growing up
It's all about
Letting go of what you know

This house
Built of stone and cement
All we can never forget
And about being myself
You taught me how
This house
Built the family we have now

When I had
No place to go
Your door was open
With words unspoken
Track Name: Balsamic Seduction
Pack your bags
It's time to leave the country
To find a better life up north
Send our best to mom and dad
We'll send back what we can when we have
Don't have much cus we're giving it all
Up for this

It's time to get on
With living everyone

And there will be time for sleep
To then embrace the never ending
Around each corner
As the world unfolds before you
I will hold your hand.

If you hold your head up high
Because we don't have much to give up
Track Name: You Are So Good To Me My Love
You are so good to me my love
I really love the way you laugh
I really love the way you live your life
Let me get in your life
I got that Mario Cart
You got that extra controller
I've got the thing that me and you both know we need
So lets get the lighter and me and you will get higher than the mountain tops
And hang out all night

You are so good to me my love
