Track Name: Blasphemy Myself and I
Every inadvertently fostering controversy
A trait of mine it seems, to laugh at all the darker sides of things
Never been one to miss out when contention comes around
I find myself at peace while those around me ask how I could be

So in love with the words I shouldn’t speak
Open up, they fall out like broken teeth
From my mouth, onto nerves, into fights
Sincerely, sweet blasphemy, myself and I

Always thrilled to plant the seed of doubt in those that mindlessly
Follow the aging ways of older days with blind hypocrisy
And there could be better ways, but as my sanity decays
I feel I find relief in making them as comfortless as me

So in love with the words I shouldn’t speak
Open up, they fall out like broken teeth
From my mouth, onto nerves, into fights
Sincerely, sweet blasphemy, myself and I

I’m lost but I’m hopeful, still fearing the end
Searching for purpose, we break and we bend
For answers and reason that we’ll never have
Some cling to reverence, I laugh to forget

So in love with the words I shouldn’t speak
Open up, they fall out like broken teeth
From my mouth, onto nerves, into fights
Sincerely, sweet blasphemy, myself and I
Track Name: Drop The Girl
Drop the girl, she’s not worth the time
She’s wasted on her back dragging other boys into her lies
You know she’s no good for you
She'd sink lower than a body in the Hudson could ever do

Drop the girl, she's only gunning for your heart
She’s sure to leave you broke and bleeding
Cause she’s all about trying to figure out the breakdown
Whoa…
And you know she’ll turn her back on you,
She covers her tracks and buries the clues
She’s only set out to burn you
And you know your better off so c’mon…

Drop the girl… Whooooa
She’s the only reason she’s got you believing its love
Drop the girl… Whooooa
The bridge is best for burning so send her down in flames and get up…

Drop the girl you can taste it on her lips
What she's drinking, who she’s been with
Yea she’s so turned on (shes so turned on)
How everything’s gone wrong
Its all her fault and you know
She’ll turn her back on you
She covers her tracks and buries the clues
She’s only set out to burn you
And you know your better off so c’mon….

Drop the girl… Whooooa
She’s the only reason she’s got you believing its love
Drop the girl… Whooooa
The bridge is best for burning so send her down in flames and just
Drop the girl from the highest building
You can when you have to
You gotta see through the scam
Drop the girl… Whooooa
The bridge is best for burning so send her down in flames and just…

DROP THE GIRL!

Throw your pride aside and show your friends some faith
(Is there a night where she forgets your name?)
Who’s got your back when everything's starting to fall right apart again
(C'mon is that what it takes?)
Throw your pride aside and show your friends some faith
(Is there a night where she forgets your name?)
Who’s got your back when everything's starting to fall right apart again…
(C'mon is that what it takes?)

Drop the girl, she’s no good for you
She'd sink lower than a body in the Hudson could ever do

Drop the girl… Whooooa
She’s the only reason she’s got you believing its love.
Drop the girl… Whooooa
The bridge is best for burning so send her down in flames and just
Drop the girl from the highest building
You can when you have to
You gotta see through the scam
Drop the girl… Whooooa
The bridge is best for burning so send her down in flames and just….
Track Name: Fucked Up Kids
We're taking bats to neighborhoods
Where we don't belong
Where they say we can't go
Carve our names in all the wood and the concrete
They think they're safe in their homes
So they can see it
Remind them that we exist
This place is not their own
The city's our birthright
We'll keep our fists tight
So they'll know

Hey! I can say
We're all just fucked up kids and that's ok
If we don't belong
To anyone or anything
We're all just fucked up kids
Walking on promises
We're breaking all of them
But we could be

Getting good at being bad
They don't understand
What's it hurt they don't know
Apologies we never have
We're a shot of light
In the dark, a faint glow
But we burn the brightest
During the night shift
Hanging with New York's finest
So when the bars close
And everyone goes home
We don't go

Hey! I can say
We're all just fucked up kids and that's ok
If we don't belong
To anyone or anything
We're all just fucked up kids
Walking on promises
We're breaking all of them
But we could be

We can roam the streets
Drinking Genesee
Running from police
Taking shots til we're lost
Or disturb the peace
Cause we never sleep
Down your drink and we're gone
(We're getting good at being bad)

Hey! I can say
We're all just fucked up kids and that's ok
If we don't belong
To anyone or anything
We're all just fucked up kids
Breaking before we bend
Born to lose in the end
But we could be more
Born to lose in the end
But we could be more than this
Track Name: Save Your Breath
Save your breath this time around
You're too beautiful and it's late
There's nothing left to say
I've wasted all this time on you
On you

It's all the same, we all make mistakes
And if you didn't notice, I'm taking this for all its worth
If it's a game, and these are the stakes
I know I got the best shot, for taking you out of the race

And every time I think of him it makes me sick
And I don't wanna know just what happened then
In the van right in front of my house
That's where you sold me out, girl
You didn't have a clue

You sold me out
What'd you think about when you were telling all your friends
about how your lips were pressed against his tightly
And I hope you (had your eyes closed)

And every time I think of him it makes me sick
And I don't wanna know just what happened then
In the van right in front of my house
That's where you sold me out, girl
You didn't have a clue

What'd you think about when you sold me out?

Every time you go to sleep at night
I wonder what you hide behind closed eyes
What else could you be keeping from me?
What else could you be keeping from me?

And every time you go to sleep at night
I wonder what you hide behind closed eyes
What else could you be keeping from me?
What else could you be keeping from me?

And every time I think of him it makes me sick
And I don't wanna know just what happened then
In the van right in front of my house
That's where you sold me out, girl
You didn't have a clue

And every time I think of him it makes me sick
And I don't wanna know just what happened then
In the van right in front of my house
That's where you sold me out, girl
You didn't have a clue
Track Name: Summer Bones
In Ohio there’s a fire that burnt my summer bones
Hiding out beyond the tree lines
We’d sit for hours and watch them glow
Murder seconds in the playground across from Sherwood Park
Smoke ourselves to the filter
And swore we’d split as soon as winter starts

I used to know when I was home
I used to be invincible, so damn sure of everything
When time alone was so few and far between
We held the world
The world just got too heavy for me

Where do I go? I’m so tired of the same roads
I know that it’s home but I can’t take the snow anymore
We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Just fell apart right in my arms, I got nothing to lose

We parked our car in the graveyard and drank away our lives
Tonight I’ll tear down the headstones we hid behind, one at a time

I used to know when I was home
I used to be invincible, so damn sure of everything
When time alone was so few and far between
We held the world
The world just got too heavy for me

Where do I go? I’m so tired of the same roads
I know that it’s home but I can’t take the snow anymore
We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Where do I go? I’m so sick of the same roads
I know that it’s home but I can’t fake a smile anymore
We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Just fell apart right in my arms, I got nothing to lose

So impertinent when you look at it and I shouldn’t act
Like it’s all so tough, or it’s just too much
And I’ll toast to luck if this is as bad as it gets
Cause I got nothing to lose

Where do I go? I’m so tired of the same roads
I know that it’s home but I can’t find the cold anymore
We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Where do I go? I’m so sick of the same roads
I know that it’s home but I can’t take the snow anymore
We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Just fell apart right in my arms, I got nothing to lose
Track Name: Lighthouse
[Verse 1]
I gather stones when the weight of the world is too much
Rather suffer than not have enough
Building castles that sink in the sand
In search of lang lost in the fog
Made my peace with it, throw it on
And then you came along
And help me light my way

[Chorus]
And all the times I wasted on someone that wasn't you
Like all along I should've known but now I found the truth
If I could just wake up to you, make love to you
That's all I want to do
So guide me like a lighthouse back to you

[Verse 2]
I know it's hard
I miss the weight of your head on my chest
I miss keeping you warm in your bed
Making moments we'll never forget
Like the ocean breeze you came along
To lift my sails, to take me home
And when you're gone I can barely stay

[Chorus]
And all the times I wasted on someone that wasn't you
Like all along I should've known but now I found the truth
If I could just wake up to you, make love to you
That's all I want to do
So guide me like a lighthouse back to you

[Bridge]
And I'll be home, home
Guide me like a lighthouse back to you
And I'll be home, home
I lost my faith but I found my hope in you
And there there is no when weight of the world is too much

[Chorus]
All the times I wasted on someone that wasn't you
Like all along I should've known but now I found the truth
If I could just wake up to you, make love to you
That's all I want to do
So guide me like a lighthouse back to you
