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

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….

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

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

Summer Bones 04:17
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

Lighthouse 03:21
[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
