Track Name: Real Good
"You are a cannonball"
She says like I don't know it
"Tearing through the stone without a thought for skin that might surround it"
And it feels real good

After the alcohol
I'm looser and unguarded
I'll put it in a song, more than just a chance to talk about it
And it feels real good

Hiding from a chance to play a part
Making your excuses in the dark
And if we don't go now we are never gonna leave
Trust me

Maybe I'm dead wrong
And this is all dishonest
Truth is never sung, it's never just a chance to talk about it
It's a way to validate my luck

'Cause when I'm long gone
At least I won't be haunted
By countless idle tones that might not be my own and strip me to the bone

Look, I need you in my corner
I'm never, never never
Gonna be so willing to fade

Hiding from it
Making your excuses in the dark
And if we don't go now we are never gonna leave
Trust me

Hiding from a chance to play a part
Making your maneuvers in the dark
And if we don't go now we are never gonna leave
Trust me
Track Name: Haunted By
The cigarette between your lips just
Reminds me of the smoke that's still inside every single small town that we burned to the ground
I didn't know that you had a magic hand
Collecting road maps in your sleeves and driving on
I'm fond of all the stories you tell
Another look at yourself
They keep me honest

And if I'm being honest everything's haunted by a bad memory
It's a little dramatic, but that's a habit, it's what I have to offer
If I'm being honest I don't wanna hear this song so
Please, please, please come home

And if I'm being honest everything's haunted by a bad memory
But there's a desert in every letter that you send out that door
The same seven bars have been repeating for too long so
Please, please, please just

Collect these bones, assign an image
Each line, each crack, each curve could coincide with each time we fell down, each new life that we found
And then abandoned - we'll never get them back
A bandage torn off as a plea to find a home
Be honest - take a look at yourself
What are you willing to sell
To get what you wanted?

And if I'm being honest everything's haunted by a bad memory
It's a little dramatic, but that's a habit, it's what I have to offer
If I'm being honest I don't wanna hear this song so
Please, please, please come home

And if I'm being honest everything's haunted by a bad memory
But there's a desert in every letter that you send out that door
The same seven bars have been repeating for too long so
Please, please, please just
Track Name: We Will Be Fine
All alone in your apartment
Carving names into the walls
I know it wasn't what you wanted
And your voice is full of salt
You wanna throw it in the river
But that river's been dammed
And it's safe to go swimming

Made a new years' resolution
Thought I'd lose a couple pounds
Then I got a weed prescription
Started buying by the ounce
Now I still got that little belly
But I don't give a damn
As long as I know you're still thinking about me fondly

Let's go outside
What's the worst thing that could happen to you?

We will be fine
I know you're certain that the world's turned against you
But you keep pushing back now
Can't you believe for once you don't deserve it all?

We still have time
Like I said it isn't something about you
But you keep pushing back
I'll be on the couch pretending we could have it all

I know you won't forget your problems
But it isn't all you are
So scratch your name off of the plaster
And unfold your paper heart
And if you're still gonna worry
Try the best you can
To remember the terror you feel in your chest isn't fatal

We will be fine
I know you're certain that the world's turned against you
But you keep pushing back now
Can't you believe for once you don't deserve it all?

We still have time
Like I said it isn't something about you
But you keep pushing back
I'll be on the couch pretending we could have it all

Let's go outside
Like I said it isn't something about you
But you keep pushing back
I'll be on the couch pretending we could have it all
Track Name: FM
I hear it on my radio, radio, radio
See it on my computer screen, what's it mean, mean to me?
Another night alone, my eyes bloodshot, mind distraught, locked up top
Feel my thoughts, why don't you feel my thoughts, why don't you won't you notice me, notice me, notice me?

We've been on our feet all night
There's nothing left but this
Hold my hand and let's embrace that hippie shit
And in the pitch dark
I know where my friends are
We know it won't be the same alone, so
Let's jump in together
Losing our minds in common time, 'cause I'm sure of this:
Every beat, each heart, each sound, they're everything!

Can't feel it through my radio, radio,
See it on my computer screen, what's it mean, mean to me?
Another night alone, my eyes bloodshot, mind distraught, locked up top
Feel my thoughts, I know you feel my thoughts, I know that you are here with me, here with me, here with me

My brain is so fried
But I'm where I need to be
At six we're still here, still smiling
Intertwined, better than before
Keeps us up, keeps us wanting more!

Can't feel it through my radio, radio, radio
There's just something that's intangible, in my bones, feels like home
And late at night is when we're at our best, look like trash, caked with sweat
Feel my thoughts, I know you feel my thoughts, I know that you are here with me, here with me, here with me

Can't feel it through my radio, radio, radio
There's just something that's intangible, in my bones, feels like home
And late at night is when we're at our best, look like trash, caked with sweat
Feel my thoughts, I know you feel my thoughts, I know that you are here with me, here with me, here with me

Can't feel it through my radio, radio, radio
No
Track Name: Maginot Line
And if you're walking it home alone and there's a red light
Just stop and think of looking back

Right now the dozen strangers on the train
Lift their faces as you pass between their feet in business class
Pay no mind
I know you're trying to put the miles away
But I keep staring at the map, wondering when you might come back
I won't find your maginot line

Life shouldn't be about what you leave behind
You know your heart won't be calm
If you keep changing your mind

Struggle keeping up
You're such a runner
Never gonna stop
Can't touch you, runner
It's getting worse for us
Just lemme talk to ya
Never gonna stop
Just so you know - I've been trying

Struggle keeping up
You're such a runner
Never gonna stop
Can't touch you, runner
It's getting worse for us
Just lemme talk to ya
Never gonna stop
Just so you know - I've been

And if you're up before dawn alone, and there's a red light
Just stop and think of looking back

By now your mouth can't even form my name
It's not like I'm giving up, but my lungs are full of dust
And I won't find your maginot line

Life shouldn't be about what you leave behind
You know your heart won't be done
If you keep changing your mind

Struggle keeping up
You're such a runner
Never gonna stop
Can't touch you, runner
It's getting worse for us
Just lemme talk to ya
Never gonna stop
Just so you know - I've been

And if you're up before dawn alone and there's a red light
Just stop and think of looking back
'Cause you never were an Orpheo
You can find your name in what you know

Struggle keeping up
Never gonna stop
It's getting worse for us
Never gonna stop
Track Name: Old Enough to Know Better
(Walkin' alone, walkin' alone)

I keep on hiding when you turn into an animal
'Cause I know you want me for dinner
And I'm old enough to know better
Or am I just too old?

It's Sunday evening and I haven't been home at all
If I'm gonna lose my center
It better be worth the effort
'Cause I feel like I'm hitting a wall

You say, "I'm 28, it's slipping away" and I can relate
But you've got me divided
'Cause I don't wanna be the guy losing the beat
Who won't shut up about 2007

I don't know what kind of trouble
You're gonna wanna get up to tonight
Is it the kind that's gonna make me get up tonight?
Or is it the kind that's gonna make me wanna stay inside?

You've got me walkin' alone
You've got me walkin' alone, walkin' alone

So give me the keys, I'll get you a drink
I don't even think that I know what I'm losing
'Cause if I feel like this around all of these kids that I've stuck myself with
Then I must be losing something

I don't know what kind of trouble
You're gonna wanna get up to tonight
Is it the kind that's gonna make me get up tonight?
Or is it the kind that's gonna make me wanna stay inside?
