Porchlight 03:02
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

Drag You Out 03:06
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

Long October 03:29
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

Stay With Me 02:31
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

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!"

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

Capsize 01:01
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

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

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?

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

Fade Away 03:31
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.

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
