Track Name: Alone
Firelight is shining clear
But it can't burn away our fears
We're all gonna die right here
We end up alone

We're all gonna die right here
We end up alone
Track Name: Scar
I'll always have you around
But I won't give you a thought
People might think about
If it was my own fault

I tore myself apart
Right from the start
And I think it's strange
That you'll never change
You are my scar

No sense in disguising you
I try to keep prizing you
But I always end up
I end up despising you

I tore myself apart
Right from the start
And I think it's strange
That you'll never change
You are my scar
Track Name: Bleed
You know we're out on the town all night
And I can't help that you're not uptight
Come on and leave with me baby come on
To call it love's just a waste of time
A second verse with a pointless rhyme
Come on and need with me baby come on

Out on the streets I can taste your smile
And in the cab for a couple miles
Come on and be with me baby come on
But Lua's right that the night's a lie
And all your truth's just an honest lie
That we recede into baby come on

'Cause when the morning comes on our cityscapes
By ones and twos and threes
I can write my wrongs into all these songs
For all the world to see

And now my head is a fucking mess
You're smoking weed as I slowly dress
Come on and bleed with me baby come on
And when the world starts to crumble down
I'll air my wounds in the midday sun
Come on and bleed with me baby come on
Track Name: How To Live
Shouting out loud trying to make you proud but baby you just turn away
Playing music in bars and driving fast cars but feeling lonely at the end of the day

I've got a half broken dream and a highway
And though I'll love you till the day I die
I've gotta put the hammer down
Get the hell out of town
Keep running to the end of the line

I heard the road to happiness is paved with paper degrees
There must be something that I went and missed because I'd have to stay I disagree
And though I ain't got a plan to retire you know I'll love you till the day I die
I gotta put the hammer down get the hell out of town and keep running till the end of the line

I don't feel like going home
I don't feel like growing old
I don't feel like being told
How to Live

I've got a half broken dream and a highway
And though I'll love you till the day I die
I've gotta put the hammer down
Get the hell out of town
Keep running to the end of the line

I've gotta put the hammer down get the hell out of town and keep running till the end of the line
Put the hammer down get the hell out of town keep running till the end of the line
Track Name: Born For
I'm grabbing all your cigarettes
I'll tear them down
I can't spend one more night in this place
I oughta be alone tonight so I'll take the walk
I was never one for saving face

I was born to be yours but you could do better for sure
I think the lights on the docks of my city know what I mean

Waiting on a phone call from a friend
Once last chance to make the amends
That she swore she'd make before the year was through
I was resolute as well making vows I couldn't tell
'Cause like a birthday wish they never would come true

If you were born to be mine you won't have an easy time
But I think we're getting better, this might just last forever this time

When I first arrived on shore
Memory rich and money poor
I assumed you'd ask for more
Guess I never knew you well before

If we were born to be here, that would justify my fears
But I know that's not the answer, I'm pretty goddamn sure it's just my fault
Track Name: Autopilot
There are times I wake up in a cold sweat
Fifty-thousand feet in the sky
Hands are wet, slipping on the wheel
Of the plane that I'm supposed to fly
And I know that you're shaking your head
I told you I was gonna crack
All the gauges that used to be lit up
Might as well be painted black

Autopilot burning you down
Autopilot straight to the ground
Autopilot you won't be found
Autopilot I can't be trusted with you

JFK, 737, transatlantic on a cloudy day
Tower calls, radar's going down and you'll have to find your own way
No help! Dammit I told you I'm worthless when I fly alone
Hey Computer! I'm defeated! How ya gonna get me home?
Track Name: Die Right Here
As I stand with my heart on fire
And my hair all caked in mud
All the spires on the city's tattered walls
Celebrate the child's blood

All the backstabbed and the damned
Fall to pieces in her hands
But underneath these sunken streets
You can hear dissension creep

From the lives in the fallow fields below
All await an endless tomb
Clerics wail in a serenade to dawn
Underneath this ceaseless gloom

High above they feast on flesh
Till they can barely catch their breaths
But down below our bodies ache
Swear we won't make the same mistakes
But it's happening again

Morning comes after centuries of night
In a swirl of blood and fire
New flags wave looking like the flags of yore
All atop this city's spires
Marching on
Track Name: Sophia
Sophia, I see you
You're walking up the stairs
And you don't care
Sophia, I see you
You dyed your hair one day
For something new

There's something new
Right inside those books that you're
Carrying upstairs, avoiding my looks
I want to tell you something
Though I know I shouldn't ask
Because I already know
What I need to know

Sophia, I see you
You're walking up the stairs
And you don't care
Sophia, I see you
You dyed your hair one day
For something new

There's nothing new
about the way I look at you
You're so used to it
I wish It wasn't true
I'm thinking now
That I should stay alone right here
But I need to make a move
I know I need you now

Gotta find some peace of mind
Because I don't want to lose it over you
And I know I've got so much time
But I just need another minute to get through
To you
Track Name: Burlington Bar Scene
At the bar it isn't hard to tell me what to do
I'm such a nervous wreck that every breath I take
Is either cigarettes or booze
But every time you call me out again
I'm such a sad dog on a lease
I stumble close behind and try to read your mind
So that you'll offer me a treat

Tied to the table, five dollar glasses
It's getting late and no one asks
But take it from me babe
I'll be the one to leave
Your life is fast tracked, I've always been assured
I'm not a benchmark, you're no ambassador
If you've got to lie try something I might believe

Midnight comes with broken thumbs
That try to keep you close at hand
But lose you to the crowd and everyone around
This city's bar scene wins again

My eyes to the table breaking my glasses
It's getting late and no one asks
But take it from me babe
I'll be the one to leave
Out through the streets you're twirling and twisting
Soft like the mist until we kissed
Then you turned around and I silently watched you leave

Left again at Church and Main
I took the long way back alone
A few tequila shots and all the love I've got
Are not enough to bring you home
Track Name: Whiskey Nights
You've gotta pick it up man and see it through you've got a little brother counting on you
Count your reasons for living even if they are few 'cause I miss the man I once knew

Spend your nights drinking whiskey till morning
Spend your days just waiting on nights
Don't go blaming the times you were born in
Now it's time to start making it right

I know I've been gone and it's not okay for me to show up like this anyway
But I heard you were thinking 'bout leaving this world and I'd die before I let you slip away

Spend your nights drinking whiskey till morning
Spend your days just waiting on nights
Don't go blaming the times you were born in
Now it's time to start making it right

Now you're mother and I, we don't talk much these days and I wish like hell that weren't true
But the last time we spoke I remember her saying she'd fight wolves and swim oceans for you

Spend your nights drinking whiskey till morning
Spend your days just waiting on nights
Don't got blaming the times you were born in
Now it's time to start making it right

I'm here to start making it right
I'm not leaving your doorstep tonight
Track Name: Lightbulb Blown
With every loss split amongst her love
Every double cross she'd been dreaming of
There was no other way for the words she'd say
And I would write them all wrong

With every sign, every lightbulb blown
I was terrified from the hope she'd grown
In a thunderstorm when our love was born
From the words we kept till the dawn

And I need you now
When I'm falling down
When I'm bleeding out
All across the ground

And I feel it now when the morning hums
And I'm out of lines but the words will come
Standing on the shore beating back the oars
Till a million grey faces escape or erase me
I'm gone.
