Track Name: What's Your Big Idea?
I’m not sure of anything anymore
And I’m not sure why no one is who they were
Cause they’ve got time to kill
And they’ve got blood to spill together
But who are they to tell me right from wrong

Hey hey hey whatcha’ runnin from man
What’s your big idea
You’re living your whole life asleep man
What’s your big idea

Lord knows that I’ve wished for nothings else
And I won’t ask for anything for myself
But they’ve got time to kill
And they’ve got blood to spill together
But I don’t think they’ll make it out alive

Hey hey hey whatcha’ runnin from
Cause time waits for no one

It’s the rush you chase but never seem to find
It’s the knife that slips itself into your side
Can’t forget my thoughts and all my memories
Of watching everyone fall right in front of me

Tell me that I’ll change and prove to me I’m wrong
And we end up the same
Tell me that I’ll change
Cause I’m not sure at all
So why don’t you just tell me

Hey hey hey wahtcha’ running from
Cause time waits for no one
It’s the rush you chase but never seem to find
It’s the knife that slips itself into your side
Time waits for no one

And you’ll never get it back
Track Name: We Won't Sleep
Take everything that you own
Throw it into the fire
The rates will inherit what’s left
They’ll decorate and remodel
These rooms that were once
Where we rested our heads
Have crumbled and crashed to the ground

We won’t sleep till the lights burn out
Just stay
(I won’t give up I won’t fall)
We won’t leave till the roof caves in
Just stay

Knocked off the king from his throne
Called a cheat and a liar
It’s true but I’m much better dressed
Fashioned pain from another
These beds that were once
Where we nurtured our young
Have broken and bent from the love

So the time will come
Where you ask yourself “what have I done?”
There’s a place in hell for your friends
We are all doomed

(we won’t give up we won’t fall)
Track Name: $50,000,000
I know how it ends
From all of the scenes you told I know how it ends
A tale of a life you stole I know how it ends
I swear it will break you down I know how it ends
I promise you’ll surely drown

These are the days you wish you could redo
Carry the weight of all that was untrue
We are forever wanting more
With out mistakes lit up for all to see
Will it awake the person we should be
We are forever wanting more

I know how it ends
So quick to just criticize I know how it ends
Not willing to compromise
You only give poor advice I know how it ends
How much will you sacrifice

So let’s start again and give it a chance
Suppose that we are who we ought to be
And let’s not forget all of the things
That we said we would never be
Track Name: Friend
What do I get for always being there
You made cheap the hours I put in
When you needed me
When no one else seemed to care
And it’s gone now

You could’ve been so many better things
Take a look at yourself or what’s left of it
And if I needed you would you pretend to even care

I’ve lost a friend I’ve had
I’ve lost a friend I used to know
And you’re gone to go be someone else
To find it all out
To di it yourself
And you’re gone and I have nothing to show
And I’ve lost a friend I used to know

Tell me exactly what I want to hear
Tell me it’s over and done with
And we’ll sit back and laugh
To put it all in the past

And I want him back
Track Name: Quitting
You walk in, I ask to take your coat
Your hands are shaking and you’re
Freezing from the walk back home
I know I shouldn’t try
To bring you back once more

“I can learn to speak up when I talk”
I can learn to listen when you speak real low
I know I shouldn’t try
To bring you back once more

This is it
The final bow, the curtain call
I studied all the lines I wrote
Could never play the starring role

This is it
It’s time for me to bow my head
And as I hear the crowd applaud
I know that it’s for you instead
Track Name: Hey Amy
Tell me, I know you can
Cause I’ll wait until the end

Amy, are you alone?
Cause I can’t find you now

Help me, I know you can
Cause I have no one else

Was there nothing left?
This house was such as mess
The streets I knew went down the drain

Amy, did you survive?
Could you stand up and fight?

Tell me, which way to go
Cause you’re all that I know

The kids won’t be raised in the places they played in
The sky opened up and the damage is done so just go

I’m on the edge of giving up
It seems you finally ran out of luck
You disappeared, can’t be found
When the sky came falling down

And it took everything we had
And it threw it into the ocean

(the rain came down, you drown in me)
Track Name: Stranger
Planes and trains took you away
Were never ending
Chasing with no consequence
Your new obsession
You always went alone
You never trusted anyone
How far will you go to forget where you’re from

Oh god I always felt like you were such a stranger
And I know the farther you go I’ll need you closer
Oh god I always felt like you were such a stranger
From a tale of a life that I once called my own

With the fear that you’d escape
My contradiction
Could this be a lesson learned or all for nothing
Oh will I ever feel what I felt with anyone
How far must I go to forget what I’ve done

And you wonder how you’d ever fathomed how you would be content
Would the places that you traveled to someday be filled with friends
That you threw away back home and said you’d find them all again
Would I just be just like them
A replacement in the end
Track Name: One Shot
He always found a way to make you say
That it’s all your fault
Brings you to your knees
Watched you fall apart

Dreaming of a life you could have lived
All the things you wish you never did
Is there time to make it right

You’ve only got one shot
You’ll never have to spend the night alone
You’ve only got one

I’m burying my face beneath the sheets
Just to block it out
The sound breaks through the walls
And fills up the house

When you said you’ve lost it all before
Couldn’t pick yourself up off the floor
Help me son, I need someone

To share a life equal as one
Till death shows up and says it’s done
But what if you gave all your love
To someone who would waste it up
And on your knees you pray to have
A life restart a better half
And I’m the one you call for help but what if I am gone myself

You’ve only got one shot
You’ll never have to spend the night alone
You’ve only got one
You only need me
Track Name: Kid
I broke in your room to see you fall to the floor
Your eyes rolled back as you reached your hand to the door
And I knew this place was not for me anymore

This is it kid listen up it’s time you prove yourself
So just hold on it’s all worth fighting for
And I know she’s gone and I know you’re scared
But I need you now so you’ve gotta just hold on
It’s all worth fighting for

Years will slip away if you just let them go by
You have to hit rock bottom before you open your eyes
And I hate to see you like this
I need you on my side

Walk away my friend it’s not too late to make amends oh no
Just to try to comprehend she’d rather be all alone than pretend

This is it kid listen up it’s time you walk this plank
So untie the rope around your back before you fall in way too deep
Track Name: Show Me
Now you’ve got me
Tied all up in knots
Telling me all the stories that I hoped you once forgot
Can we pretend
Try and make believe
That the error of my ways will stay with me and won’t repeat
I have my doubts
Guess you’ll never know

Show me what you can do
How long will I wait to decide
Show me what you can do
I wasn’t worth it anyway

There’s this metal key
Hanging around my neck
And it hasn’t moved an inch since the day before you left
I say I can
But you know I won’t
Is the one I gave to you still show up when you come undone
I have my doubts
Guess I’ll never know

I wasn’t worth it anyway
“if I’m the one will you decide?”
Track Name: Molly's Desk
We sit home and speak
Of a god we’ve never seen
And wonder if he
Watches when we sleep
Or when I looked on molly’s desk
And copied her whole sheet

And oh I know I’m young
To speak with such disdain
An urgency

So this is my confession
I hope you listen
Will Saint Christopher bring me to my destination
And bring us all back home
Am I alive I almost feel it
Riding the waves of all my demons I’ll drift away

We dressed all in black
Momma wears her makeup dark
And talks so softly
“son one day you’ll learn
that everyone you know will leave
never to return”

And oh a man so young
Taken way too soon
From all he loved

So this is my intention
To break tradition
Could I give you myself to bring him back this instant
And bring us all back home

Watched you fight with the darkness
But you just couldn’t win
Once so strong, full of power
Now fragile and thin
I’ll bring you back, oh I swear
I can figure this out
I know many have tried
But I won’t let you down
I’m not afraid of the man
I read about in the books
The one that takes you away
If you end it too soon
I’ll turn the darkness on me
I’ll travel up through the wind
And if they don’t open the gates
I’ll break my way in
Track Name: All The Moves We Make Are In The Dark
Suppose I’ve fallen to the point of no return
Would it mend by telling everyone
I know what I’ve learned
Lost perception from all directions
Take this as my last confession

Are my hands too weak
To break the ties you make
One day you’ll see
It’s the choice you make
Ties you make
One day you’ll see
That all the moves we make
Are in the dark
Suppose that all the words I wrote were all for you
Would it mend by telling everyone you know
That it was true
Lost connection from all intention
Take this as my last confession

You’re searching for truth
And it will fail you again
