Shadows

These walls aren’t mine, anymore.

But, they never were.

And you’re not mine, anymore.

And you never were.

So what do you got?

You’ve got all these answers.

So what do you got?

Well, I never know.

So what do you got?

You’ve got all these answers.

And I still have every mile to go.

I got to get myself on with my life,

I got to cut the ties, I got to do what’s right.

But, I can’t do it all alone…

And I don’t know if I can do it on my own.

So what do you got?

Well, you’ve got all these answers.

So what do you got?

So what do you got?

Well, you’ve got all these answers

And I still have nothing to give.

So what do you got?

When you’re all alone?

You’ve got nothing.

You Know Who You Are

Hey there…

Way out past the exit signs.

We’ll find our way home

Between the white and yellow lines.

Go home, go home

Is this the only thing to do?

Hold on, hold on

To what’s left of me and you.

Cause’ lately, I’ve been thinking I’m crazy.

For always thinking-

“You’ll take responsibility for you.”

And I know (yea, I know) we’re wasting away.

You can’t change anything.

Me and my friends, we’re just wasting away

We’re waiting on a better day.

Yea, we’re just wasting away.

Cause’ lately, I’ve been thinking I’m crazy.

For always thinking-

“You’ll take responsibility for you.”

I can’t listen anymore.

How much more can you take from me

Take responsibility for you.

I Had To Put My Lady Down

This house is freezing.

We can’t afford to turn the heat on, just yet.

And I miss my dog barking,

Even though when she did, I told her to stop.

And this high’s wearing off

I guess it’s just one of those feeling

When you don’t want to get out of your bed.

My last five-dollar chip is on the table

And all my friends want to become millionaires.

But, the funny thing about that…

Is none of us got a job, except for Cam

Or ambitions

To become

Anything we’re not.

So let’s go so far away.

Where we don’t understand what they’re saying.

So let’s go so far away.

Where we don’t understand what they’re saying.

We’ll go today.

Yea, we’ll go today.

 

West Coast (Medina)

I used to drive around, all around, this town

I felt so down till

I met you.

Then all we’d do is just drive through this city

Yea, just me and you.

I don’t know what to do.

I started falling for you.

I didn’t know what to do.

I think I’m falling for you.

This city’s enough to break her back

And I’m too broke to ever be able to go and pay her back.

We met her at the “X” at some stupid pub.

We got into a fight with everyone there was.

But, we always won.

Yea, we always won.

So let’s go to the West Coast.

I hear they got the best smoke

And the “coolest” things to do

I want to do them all with you.

Got to get you outta my head.

(Always up to something, always was for nothing)

Got to get you outta my head.

So let’s go to the West Coast.

I hear they got the best smoke

And the “coolest” things to do

I want to do them all with you.

I used to do them all with you

And I still want to…

Let’s go to the West Coast.

I used to drive around, all around, this town

Felt so down till

I met you.

Hurricanes

Well, the hurricanes came and they washed everything away

But, I guess that I’m feeling better, yea.

Being alone is one thing I’d never want to be.

But, that’s just how it goes at the bottom of the sea.

Do you like how I look?

Do you hate how I speak?

Well, sometimes I see things a little differently.

I hear voices of death, screams of neglect.

Well, the oceans one thing you’ll never see how I see.

And they came and took everything away.

But, I guess that I’m feeling better, yea.

Being alone is one thing that I knew I’d always be.

Well, that’s just how it goes at the bottom of the sea.

Live for yourself.

Die for no one else.

Live yourself, die for nobody else.

Yea, there’s no one else.

Die for yourself

Live for no one else.

Die for yourself.

Mirrors
Let me tell you bout this dream I had, where I burned every bridge connecting me to my past. I find it hard to think that people change, cause Im living proof that the demons don’t escape. “ On the way home,” remember that, Its all in your head, and its all in your head.

I see myself as two different people, the person iv become and the messed up kid who did messed up shit, I learned from burning everything

I could never forgive me,
For all the things iv done
So this is my confession,
Iv abandoned all hope this time

I see myself as two different people, the person iv come to be and the fucked up kid who did fucked up shit, I learned from burning everything

I could never forgive me for all the things iv done, so this is my confession iv abandoned all hope this time

EarthQuakes
Iv been shaking for a while now, I been walking down a windy road and its starting to wind down, its coming to an end I can tell you how it happens. I been shaking for a while now, I been breaking my bones just to hear how it sounds, I been waiting for a while now, You will be remembered and I will be forgotten about, they come and they go. Just so you know Iv been fucked up ever since the stars stopped shining outside, Sometimes it hurts my head to still be alive. Sometimes, Sometimes at night, I could just, I could just, I could just… But then you’d get what you wanted, yeah and Im not good as losing and neither are you. Cause breaking even is something we could never do. I learned everything I know from my brothers, things you cannot learn from your mother. I learned I know from my brothers. The things you cannot learn from your mother, and as I grow older, I watch this city grow with me, yeah it grows with me, and one day I know the city shakes with me, the city shakes with me. My voice is cracking cause I been screaming all night, I been drinking and smoking and I been picking fights, Its not alright, no, its not alright.

Tsunamis 
I wont be home for Christmas, cause I don’t believe in it. And I aint got no misses or any mistletoe to kiss underneath its Christmas eve and never even been shopping, aint got no tree, we aint got no tree
So forget everything youv ever wanted, this years not gonna be like anything youv ever seen, Im not getting, Im not giving, Im not getting , Im not giving, to anyone ever again.
And this ones about doing everything wrong and nothing right at all, and this ones about doing everything wrong and nothing right at all
So forget everything youv ever wanted this years not gonna be like anything youv ever seen, Im not getting, Im not giving, Im not getting, Im not giving to anyone ever again. Im so selfish, but hey hey so isn’t everyone else. Well just fade away.
You and me we will never be nothing but a dream, clocks smashing on the side streets.

For every mistake Iv never made
Here we go again, now Im driving as fast as I can, don’t care if I make it home tonight, my hands are on the wheel feeling alright. So I guess I can try my best to better myself, better myself, but whats the hope in it? All I want is to be free from the things that surround me, but im in so deep im drowning, Im sorry for every mistake Iv ever made. For every mistake Iv never made.

What’s In Your Head
I had that dream again, where you never let me in, I swear its never ending
and Ill sit coutside your house till the morning comes, you know when the light meets the dark* for a minute or two before the sun comes up*, maybe it’s like a dream that plays inside my head and ill sit outside until you let me in.
Don’t waste your time on me, Im so lost in my own head I cant even breathe
So if its bad news then its sad news. I hope you can tell the difference
If its bad news then its sad news I hope you can tell the difference
No, no. no I don’t want to live this way
“whats in your head”

A postcard I never sent you
I miss California, but not as much as I miss you, driving 2000 miles just to kiss you, and I wonder will you, will you disappear too like the ocean when you make your way back home, were making our way back home again, yeah back to the beginning , and I don’t know where you came from, but I wish you woulda come sooner, I been waiting I been waiting for someone like you, with a smile like that you could cut through mountains, Iv only got five more days left without you, and Mikes on the porch again, I guess hes missing home and, hes talking on the phone again, guess he knows what its like to be stuck in new England, well I don’t know where you came from but I wish you would of come sooner cause I been waiting, I been waiting for someone like you, with a smile like that you could cut through mountains, Iv only got 5 more days left without you

14
you know the days when you cant get in a word, its one of those, you shoot down every spark and every good idea, yeah well, they mean something to me
lets go back to 2002 where nothing ever mattered and we didn’t have a clue
we don’t care, we don’t care, we never cared at all
and I wont apologize for nothing iv done wrong, you need to get your head straight, and listen to this song, and when you need the time ill give it no questions asked I need to get my head straight, come on come on
Wake up wake up wake up
Ill write these words down
Wake up wake up wake up
So I can get to you
Wake up wake up wake up
The way that I know how
you know the days when you cant get in a word, its one of those, you shoot down every spark and every good idea, yeah well, they mean something to me
Lets get lost and find our way home, you know it never matters when your not alone, we don’t care, we don’t care, we never cared at all and I wont apologize for nothing iv done wrong, you need to get your head straight, and listen to this song, and when you need the time ill give it no questions asked I need to get my head straight, come on come on
Wake up wake up wake up
Ill write these words down
Wake up wake up wake up
So I can get to you
Wake up wake up wake up
The way that I know how

IT MEANT SOMETHING TO ME

Basement song

Lost again, it doesn’t make sense, in a world of mistakes my only attachment is its so hard to be stuck together when your nowhere to be… fall in love fall apart, get back together, why ever bother? You were the one who said things would work out, Im just waiting it out,  don’t say it again, I don’t wanna hear about you, don’t say it again, I don’t wanna live with out you, If I could just disguise myself into becoming someone else, and maybe we would fall in love again, no. Im playing songs in my basement, hoping that you coming knocking at my window but, you, you never do. Im playing songs in my basement.

…I been wondering
And I been wondering, wondering, wondering am I ever gonna see you again?

19 Maple St.

Whats good with us these days?
Do you still even care?
I called you all night, you kept me waiting
Another cold night spent alone in Springfield.

And can you see what this did to me,
Im outside, waiting at the door, I hope you choke on every word

Last night I had a dream,
We were hanging outside 19 Maple St.
Every word we spoke,
Just dissapeared into the dark like ghosts

And then you made your way back home
(You look so cold, you look so cold)
I could always read the situation
Get up and go and don’t believe me

Whats good with us these days?
(Whats good with us these days?)
Do you still even care?
I miss the way I used to feel at home

I always said I loved you more
Forgive me, I couldnt find the words
I hope you got what you diserve

Sink or Swim

Stop don’t speak so loud, you’re losing your voice
I hate when you yell, lets pack our bags and leave this town
’cause I don’t feel like sticking around,
it’s a like knife you threw right into my eyes,
sliced into my spine all the way through to my heart

And I was cut from the world outside
’cause there’s no anchors to catch me tonight
and even if there was my ankles
they’d slip right through the cuffs and I’ll try
I’m lost in my head but I’ll be fine,
locked away for all this time
the world could never understand why
What’s the point when I could sink or swim
and you’ll just pass right by?
What’s the point when you’re not listening
What’s the point if were just going to drown alone anyway,
alone where I’ll be

What’s the point when I could sink or swim
and you’ll just pass right by tonight
What’s the point when I could sink or swim
and you’ll just pass right by me
