Track Name: Nothing But The Sound
there's a fucking danger
of fear just wrecking my insides
and what a fucking failure
if I can't crush it in time
I'm hoping maybe..
there's an ounce of what you have...
inside of me

this pen used to move much faster
when I knew the words would never leave this room
and I don't know I ever wanted them to
I tell myself that you're skirting disaster
excuses with tight grips around my throat
but I just said no. let it go.
then pray the words follow
to let you know
that it's your courage I borrow
when I feel like running

I wanna "live deep and suck the marrow out of life"
but I don't ever try..
would it be alright if I wait?
is it alright that I'm afraid?
would it be alright if I wait?
no. let it go.
then pray the words follow
to let you know
that it's your courage I borrow
when i feel like running

I aim my eyes straight down
keep my thoughts on nothing but the sound
just keep singin..
my heart will not slow down
but I'm not sure I want it to right now
keep singin..
there's no time left
to wait on things that haven't happened yet

I'm hoping maybe...
there's an ounce of what you have..
inside of me
Track Name: On A Tear
all at once
it all came rushing out
it's never felt this heavy
but it's crushing now
it wont be long
before you give yourself up
it don't feel right
but it was just my luck

yeah, I'm down
I'm down to try again somewhere
I'm just not like you
and you guess that's fair enough

why hold onto love when you can spread it out?
but what good is wasting that love anyhow
on old friends that never come around
and they're not coming
they don't wanna wake up
it don't feel right
but it was just my luck

yeah, I'm down
but we all gotta start somewhere
I'm just not like you
and I think that's fair

yeah, there was no time
but you're still begging for more
anything to make you feel whole
you're digging holes
I'm bleeding water from stones
anything to make me feel whole
Track Name: Let's Sing
It's all quiet now
I left a note that said I wont be home
at least not for a long while
and it's funny how
they're all taking shots
well sometimes they sink in
and it feels like I am not meant..
to do great things
but I'm trying
so let's sing
make it louder now
and everything might finally seem right
it feels like it's for the first time
and I don't care how..
we get over the humps
'cause I'm by your side
'though we may never learn how..
to do great things
but I'm trying
so let's sing..
anything

if it doesn't hurt it must be wrong
we fell for that a few times
and I think we've had enough
Track Name: Rare Things
so you said you've been hangin on
by a thread..
you're dangling
well I guess I should say so long
to a friend

but you held my heart
it's the little things that set us apart

it's a rare thing that we stumbled on
so I hope you're right
I hope you're better off
but don't be blind
or hide from life
'cause we both know the end
was never in sight
Track Name: We Just Don't Move
I never thought of out with the old
but every familiar face
tried to escape
from memories..
somehow they stole..
right out of my head
I gave it a real try
sometimes
and sometimes I remember why
you don't wanna give it another go
for another goodbye

but I guess it'll be alright if we just let it
yeah, I guess it'll be alright if we only let it

it's like my fuck-ups come in waves
and they're draggin you out
it's not like we can't be saved
but we don't move fast or slow
we just don't move at all
if we're hellbent on letting go
then why's it so fucking hard to?

I'm pounding on strings
fingers crippled by cold
can't find a familiar chord
to keep them warm
it's a long long way to the end
and it's all in my hands
I gave it a real try
sometimes
and sometimes I remember why
you don't wanna give it another go
for another goodbye

but i guess it'll be alright if we just let it
yeah, i guess it'll be alright if we only let it
Track Name: Big Fucking Light
don't stay down
I still love you
even if I'm not around
you can find your own way
yeah, you said it yourself
you're not lookin for something better
just something else
now we talk about songs
that we used to sing together
it just took too long
for us to stay like that forever
you gotta get away so soon
i pretend you said "I'll always come back for you"

oh friend, I'm so sorry you can't stay
imagine what we coulda made
if we would just follow through
it feels like I've been left alone
but there's no crying now
I just want you all beside me somehow

yeah, I'm ok
I'm better all the time
and there's a big fucking light
shining on us tonight
yeah, I know we both wanna keep our cool
and I'm trying but fuck it. I miss you.

oh friend, I'm so sorry you can't stay
imagine what we coulda made
if we would just follow through
it feels like I've been left alone
but there's no crying now
I just want you all beside me somehow

what did it take to finally get away
or were the years just counting down
we're just taking stock of who is still around
and you might be the only one I miss
so I lie awake
growing older is hard to stomach now
but I still find new ways to let everyone down
so if we're starting off
right where we left off
I'm afraid
that you might see I haven't really changed
Track Name: Easy Fix
I just wanna break ground
on a new cemetery plot
fill a six foot hole
with shit i haven't got
and I'll mourn the death of wanting
all these things that I don't need
just one step towards free
they left it in our hands
like we didn't know
how to grab the nail and smash it in
yeah, compromises pile up
and they scream and kick and fuss
but that does not mean shit to us

i'll take you by the hand..
and we could fly
far away..
to wherever the wind blows
'cause I've been up all night
just thinkin..
maybe crazy..
but who knows
could be one big fucking failure
but let's go!

I don't wanna play this game
where I'm connecting all the dots
to try and find my place
with the haves or the have-nots
I just need to find a way
to make use of this love that's in my gut
sometimes I can go fucking mad
'cause I didn't know the easy fix
of just not being sad
I'm obsessing over things
they're out of my control
it gets so fucking old

i'll take you by the hand..
and we could fly
far away..
to wherever the wind blows
'cause I've been up all night
just thinkin..
maybe crazy..
but who knows
could be one big fucking failure
but let's go!
Track Name: Flat Track Bullies
I think it's time for you to go home again
where you wont be cryin' no more
till a reminder of your place on earth
flies through your fucking skull
and we all keep singing "no more"
send you off into the unknown
find yourself some kind of peace
that you have never known
they're not gonna mourn for you
it's hard to watch
they all close their eyes
until its safe
Track Name: Unending
you said it's all gonna change on this day
you scratched the date into the wall
we tossed the bed from the room
and sat down on the floor
I never really thought to ask why
'cause with you it all made sense to me
and I wish sometimes I was more like you
I'm never comfortable with letting go
we just sat all night and had a little fight
about the politics of Reagan Youth
man, you took a lot of shit when we were in school
but all these mother fuckers..
they could never touch you

and the words they said
never really added up to anything
and i wouldn't bet
any of us really knew your suffering
but we did not lie when we said
we'll be together because I can't do this on my own

what if i would have said please stay
or is another moment just too long
one final chance to protect you myself
like when you taught me that its ok
if I feel like breaking down
but what's it take to make you come around

and the words they said
never really added up to anything
and I wouldn't bet
any of us really knew your suffering
but we did not lie when we said
we did not lie when we said
we'll be together

fear eats the soul
and it swallowed.. swallowed me whole
things got confusing
and I thought i was losing the both of you
but that night you promised me
that this was unending
and no one believed it
but it was all that we needed
to be fine

..and we'll be together
Track Name: Life Is Hard. You Will Die.
no, you were never alone
never wanted this to follow you home
but on the way down..
stepped straight into the fire
and you aint ever comin' out
sow these seeds till they grow
and you'll find love
without us
yeah, you've found
a whole new kind of desire
that we aint ever figured out

just know that you are never alone
leave me here
and know just where to find me
I'm sending love
through sound exploding in wires

and the words have been shackled
but you know..
that we've said all that we have to
