Track Name: Porchlight
Waiting for my wake up call but
I feel it's not coming
I'm dizzy from all of the circles
That my mind's been running

And I hope that you know that I'm still holding on
And don't you dare forgive me because I've done nothing
I've done nothing wrong

Listen, what's it like to feel contentment
And not just feel resentment
What's it like to know where you belong
And see the light above the door
As more than just an exit

Facing down my demons and I'm swallowing my pride
All it took was just one second
Just one second, to stare up at the sky

Sing it

What's it like to feel contentment
And not just feel resentment
What's it like to know where you belong
And see the light above the door
As more than just an exit
[x2]

The only wrong decision
Is to never make one at all
Is to never make one at all

What's it like to feel contentment
And not just feel resentment
What's it like to know where you belong
And see the light above the door
As more than just an exit
[x2]

I hope that you know that I'll call when I'm gone
I'll come back in one piece
If you just leave the porch light on
Track Name: Drag You Out
Where'd you find the make up to conceal all those scars
Because from a distance I couldn't tell who you are
Did you get what you've been searching for from the start
When you look in the mirror are you proud of who you are, who you are

As soon as you start talking I stop listening
I think it's safe to say, that your work don't mean a thing
Stop biting your tongue, you're talking out both sides of your mouth
Stop texting on your phone and just hear me out

Your face is changing and your colours are fading
We start our pissing contest, this is the war I'm waging
So listen up, I've had enough I'm raising up my flag
I'm throwing out the first punch

Everyone says that I should cut you some slack
But I find that hard to do with her knife stuck in my back
Big space an awkward but know that it's sincere
Turn your back and walk away 'cause we don't need you here

Your face is changing and your colours are fading
We start our pissing contest, this is the war I'm waging
So listen up, I've had enough I'm raising up my flag
I'm throwing out the first punch

So this is my revenge I'm dragging you out so don't you pass
So this is my revenge you'll never see this again
See this again,see this again

Your face is changing and your colours are fading
We start our pissing contest, this is the war I'm waging
So listen up, I've had enough I'm raising up my flag
I'm throwing out the first punch
Track Name: Long October
Counting Crows on the radio
Ten o'clock late drive home
It's cold and I'm freezing
And it's gonna be a long October
And I don't have reasons to believe
In much of anything

Bouncing Souls on my speakerphone
Hard for walking all alone
Back and forth from 6 to 4
Metal walls, cold concrete floor
Yesterday's leaves started falling down
And I hope for my sake I didn't lose it all

My mind is gone and so am I
Now I see the world through different eyes
So everything around me is starting to weigh me down
But I'm not dead I swear to God I'm sleeping on the ground
Everything around me is starting to weigh me down
But I'm not dead I swear to God I'm making my way out

Foo Fighters on my headphones
On the way to the next show
It's still cold and I'm freezing
And it's been a long December
A reason to bury this year
When the past in the past

My mind is gone and so am I
Now I see the world through different eyes
So everything around me is starting to weigh me down
But I'm not dead I swear to God I'm sleeping on the ground
Everything around me is starting to weigh me down
But I'm not dead I swear to God I'm making my way out

When I was young my dad would always say
The darkest night's before the brightest day
I found my way but it was just dumb luck
It took me laying on my back
To start looking up

Everything around me is starting to weigh me down
But I'm not dead I swear to God I'm sleeping on the ground
Everything around me is starting to weigh me down
But I'm not dead I swear to God I'm making my way out
Track Name: Stay With Me
What a way for the year to end
You finally drove me home
I made up some poor excuse
So you would take the back roads

You dropped me off at my house
And then I watched you crawl away
As I whispered softly
Tap the brakes

Call me back and say
That you need me
'Cause I sure as hell need you.
Please believe me

That period after lunch
I saw you in my hallway
I didn't know what to do
Much less what to say

Now you're here in my arms
And I still don't have the words to convey
No ones ever made me feel this way

Call me back and say
That you need me
'Cause I sure as hell need you.
Please believe me
Stay with me and I'll always stay true
Every path I take, leads me back to you

And I got a secret that I must confess
You got my heart beating straight out of my chest
You got my heart beating straight out of my

Call me back and say
That you need me
'Cause I sure as hell need you.
Please believe me
Stay with me and I'll always stay true
Every path I take, leads me back to you
Stay with me and I'll always stay true
Track Name: Early Retirement
The alarm is going off again
And I can't find the strength within
To get myself to get up out of bed
And I can't find my keys

And I'm sick of feeling like this
Every single morning
Five more minutes in bed
With the covers over my head

Trying to get fired so I won't have to quit
Don't wanna spend my nights working the graveyard shift
And I'm so sick and tired yeah I'm over it
I'm calling this early retirement yeah

"Come on man, quit your singing and get back to work"
"Uh, quit your singing and get back to work, get bent!"

It's not that I'm afraid of work
I think that I'm above it
It's just like Johnny Paycheck said:
"Take this job and shove it!"
I'd rather be anywhere but here

Trying to get fired so I won't have to quit
Don't wanna spend my nights working the graveyard shift
And I'm so sick and tired yeah I'm over it
I'm calling this early retirement yeah

I'd rather be anywhere else
I'd rather be anywhere but here

"I'm sick of all you punk kids, sitting around, doing nothing
Singing little songs to yourselves
What's the matter with you?
Get your crap and get out of here, you're fired!"
"Okay, well, first of all you can't fire me because I quit!"
"Fired? Consider me roasted"

Trying to get fired so I won't have to quit
Don't wanna spend my nights working the graveyard shift
And I'm so sick and tired yeah I'm over it
I'm calling this early retirement yeah

"That's it, I quit!"
Track Name: Song About You
Don’t tell me to write a song about you
Don’t tell me what to do

This is getting old
And I don’t know what to say anymore
I just don’t feel like I did before

And I’m sorry, but my friends say that I shouldn’t be
I just traded in this season for better company

I get sick to my stomach, every time I try to confront this
So many nights spend staring at the ceiling

Trying to put the right words together
To let you know that I’m leaving forever
Trying to put the right words together
Like a dull blade to the dead weight I severed

And I don’t know where to begin
You’re fading out and wearing me thin
And it’s not that I lost my touch
I just can’t make it hard enough
I think it’s like my friend Joe says “I don’t need anyone or anything”
I just need something to believe in

Trying to put the right words together
Now I'm gone and leaving forever
Trying to put the right words together
In search of something better

You tell me that I’m running away, yeah
You hit the nail on the head
Drive one last nail into my ear drum
Bleed your voice out of my head

Stick the nail in your hand drive it into my head
I don’t regret a thing I said
Take the nail in your hand drive it into my head
Because I’m already dead

Trying to put the right words together
Now I'm gone and leaving forever
Trying to put the right words together
In search of something better
Track Name: Capsize
When I left you were still breathing
But I knew your time would come
Now all I feel is deep regret
I can't stop it, what they've done

It's like watching my best friend die
Like a ship washed away with the tide
Capsize, capsize
Track Name: The War At Home
And I'll never forget all the nights that I've spent
Screaming that I want to die
And I'll never forget all the nights that I've spent
Leaving holes in walls big enough to eat me alive

We're always at war with our vocal chords
And I broke more things that I could afford
You were that deep in the bottle
I was drowning in despair
You were never around when I needed
Needed you there

And I'll never forget all the nights that I've spent
Screaming that I want to die
And I'll never forget all the nights that I've spent
Leaving holes in walls big enough to eat me alive

You told me to watch my mouth
So I just drowned you out
I played my stereo I played it so loud
You told me to watch my mouth
So I just drowned you out
I'm singing these songs so loud
Can you hear me now?

And I'll never forget all the nights that I've spent
Screaming that I want to die
And I'll never forget all the nights that I've spent
Leaving holes in walls big enough to eat me alive

I remember feeling like nothing at all
I held back the tears as they started to fall

And I'll never forget all the nights that I've spent
Screaming that I want to die
And I'll never forget all the nights that I've spent
Leaving holes in walls big enough to eat me alive
Track Name: Nice Choice, Nice Life
You say that you're lost
But you're just a lost cause

Where will you go
When you're all alone
In a smoke filled bathroom
That's not your own

Within the blink of an eye
You turned and walked away
You left us all behind

You say you say that you're lost
But you're just a lost cause
Was the price you paid worth the cause?
You say you say that you're lost
But you're just a lost cause
Was the price you paid worth the cause?

Did you find what you've been looking for?
Or are you still in search of something something more?

You say you say that you're lost
But you're just a lost cause
Was the price you paid worth the cause?
You say you say that you're lost
But you're just a lost cause
Was the price you paid worth the cause?

Within the blink of an eye
You turned and walked away
You left us all behind

You say you say that you're lost
But you're just a lost cause
Was the price you paid worth the cause?
You say you say that you're lost
But you're just a lost cause
Was the price you paid worth the cause?
Track Name: Still Running Away
It was winter 2004
I slid my bike underneath the garage door
Ten miles in the falling snow
Just to throw rocks at your bedroom window
And I peddled slow

Put the pedals down and just ride
The night air makes me feel alive
I'll be back before the break of dawn
Before they realize that my bike's gone

It was summer 2009
We saw the Keys and we bolted to the shoreline
And as we crossed over the bay bridge
I crossed my fingers and we made a wish
That we'd stay until we die, yeah

Roll the windows down and just drive
We're leaving town, but just for tonight
I'll be back before the break of dawn
Before they realize that the car's gone

Stolen cars drive fast, but not as fast as stolen dreams
Between the four of us, yeah, we stole everything

It was the four of us and our stolen dreams

Get in the van and let's ride
Give me gasoline to feel alive
Cut the roots beneath my feet
Sever ties between you and me
Give me time and give me distance
(I'm still running away, I'm still running away)
Give me the path of most resistance
Give me time and give me distance
(I'm still running away, I'm still running away)
Gold comes to those persistent
Track Name: Fade Away
If you have a minute,
Just sit down, and listen,
I’m not trying to put you in your place.
It’s just lately I’ve been thinking about,
Things I might do different,
If I could calculate time, and space.

When I start to reminisce,
All my signals just get mixed.
And I,
I break down, and I cry.
(I break down!)
I can’t stand your logical,
or your twisted point of view.
I’m so stoked that being jaded
worked out so well for you.
Fade away,
Fall apart.

Friendships fade away,
And things just fall apart.
But these are the moments that set fires to my heart.
When I say,
Friendships fade away,
And things just fall apart.
But these are the moments,
That make us who we are.

Was it the loss of my innocence,
Or the changing of the tides,
Or the lessons I have learned,
From the mountains I have climbed?
Fighting all my battles,
Learning from these two black eyes.
Waging all your wars,
And I’m still sinking by your side.

Friendships fade away,
And things just fall apart.
But these are the moments that set fires to my heart.
When I say,
Friendships fade away,
And things just fall apart.
But these are the moments,
That make us who we are.

Live it up!

Fade away, fall apart.

Friendships fade away,
And things just fall apart.
But these are the moments that set fires to my heart.
When I say,
Friendships fade away,
And things just fall apart.
But these are the moments,
That make us who we are.
Track Name: Where I Belong
What the hell was I thinking?
That I'd be alright by upping and leaving
What the hell was I thinking?
I bailed out on all of the songs I believed in

Searching for the answer to where I went wrong
Finally found it was me all along
And here I found clarity inside of this melody
Now I know where I belong
This is where I belong

What the hell was I thinking?
That I'd be alright by upping and leaving
I spent 4 months broken and shut down
It's a job's worth question to turn it all around

Searching for the answer to where I went wrong
Finally found it was me all along
And here I found clarity inside of this melody
Now I know where I belong
This is where I belong

Searching for the answer and where I went wrong
Finally found it was me all along
And here I found clarity inside of this melody
Now I know where I belong
This is where I belong
This is where I belong
This is where we belong
