Track Name: Trainwreck
You said a dream was worth remembering
It’s funny, I remember everything
I can smell the railroad ties and blacktop baking like we were there yesterday

There was a little black spot on the sun
We were the only ones having fun
All the other people - they just sat there waiting for something that we knew would never come

Now you’re longing for the good old days
You don’t think that things will be the same
If we found ourselves back in the same place, I would throw myself in front of that train

I hope you can keep your promises
I hope you keep all your lies straight
Sorry to be the one to say - your train’s going to jump the rail someday
Yeah yeah yeah

Keep your promises
Track Name: Tuesday Night Lights
Tuesday, tell me can you see straight?
I know that I can’t
It’s like staring at an aquarium that won’t stop moving
If I make a run for the door will you come and find me?
Will you hunt me down?

You say you just need to get away from all this pushing
If you stop thinking about yourself for one second, I think you might get it
If you make a run for the door I will come and find you
I will hunt you down.

Stars shine bright even if we can’t see them
And we can never see them
I feel alright at 1AM, but it’s 2:30
Track Name: Status
You said I’m just too blind to see it
I told you I didn’t believe it
I see it in your eyes
And you want everybody to know
You think that I’m a zero
And you’d be the one to know
Now you feel all right
And you want everybody to know

You think there’s someplace better than here
I didn’t think that you were thinking clear
It’s all the same
And you want everybody to know
You’ve been drinking since half past two
And there’s nothing else to do
Than drink the west coast dry
And you want everybody to know

You said today was your favorite day
I wish it could always be that way
Habits are things that don’t end
And you want everybody to know
You think I wear love like my clothes
And you would be the one to know
You feel alone tonight
And you want everybody to know

All the things you said to me
You say them to everyone
The promises you made to me
You make them to everyone

We get it
Track Name: FOMS
I know you’re out there
I know you’re out there somewhere
But you don’t pick up and you don’t get back
And my blood is boiling
Lights sounds and laughter
Come from every direction
And I’m old enough to know when to break things
I know how to break things

I know how to break everything
And walk away
But I won’t keep my mouth shut
If I can’t keep my head straight

When it goes down
Without us
We ready to explode
We are missing something somewhere

Run around the world
We run in every direction
But if you don’t pick up
Then my blood is boiling
We’re jumping out of our skin
Making plans like we’re dying
And I’m old enough to know when to break everything
Track Name: Falling Houses
The house is burning; the sparks are flying
The light is dying for you and me

The ink on your body is slowly fading
I’m done waiting for you to come clean

There really isn't anything left for me to say
If you never see me again, would you care anyway?

You are broken and I will never turn to stone
I’m not choking and you will never be alone
Your story is changing everyday
If a house falls down on you
I’ll get out of the way
Track Name: Loser Candy
Last night you caved in
Threw the towel in again
Right before my eyes
Over-think the details
All the plans that you made failed
You didn't even try

I know you got scared
You see monsters everywhere
And they never go away
Losers in the back room
Want to get their hands on you
They want you to stay

If you were smart like me
None of this would have happened
If you were smart like me
Nothing would be this way
Everything would be ok
Track Name: Catastrophe
The moon sets on the west side
And I’m rotting to the core
As I stumble in the low tide
I can’t believe that I want more
One more step could kill me
The ocean could swallow me whole

If the sky crashed down right now
I don’t think I’d feel a thing
When the last rays of light go out
Will you hear me calling?
One more step could kill me
The ocean could swallow me whole

Do I need a catastrophe?
Or do I need a miracle?
Track Name: Positive Side of Negative
I’m driving alone tonight
The lights pass and burn my eyes
I know what you want
The windows down and I fly right by
This is so familiar
The conversation is so dry
We both wait for the phone to ring
Then we say goodbye

We stretched out the night
So tight I might not survive
When it all comes out
The doubt fades before my eyes
It’s the anticipating
That makes me feel alive
Like we can see everything
And we will never die

If this is the end
At least we gave it a try
And I will never rest
Until the well runs dry
When it goes from good to bad
I will be on your side
If we ruin everything
Then we say goodbye

I’m stumbling through these streets with zombies
They’re looking for something fresh to kill
Any second now they could all turn on me
It’ll be over quick I promise you it will, and they will say,
“These are the things that get away,
These are the things they said will mean something someday”
