Track Name: Extras
There’s extra chairs and tables in the common room
And fewer in mine
I’m still here but to everyone else I’m gone
I come and go in passing but I never stay the night the way they do
No I’ve been moving on and into something
I can’t point a finger to and if I did
You’d laugh
But that’s all in the past now and all that matters is that
Neither of us know what’s gonna happen
Track Name: Two or One
It’s a shame it’s a shame it’s a shame
Everything’s closing down
And the only eyes open are the only ones hoping to get out
It’s a shame it’s a shame it’s a shame
It takes so long to find the words when you need them right now
But it’s two and it's tomorrow and it’s too dark to walk home
And it’s two and it's tomorrow and no one’s gonna answer their phone
If I call
If I call
If I call
Would you pick up where the record stops?
Would it all be better off?

It’s a shame it’s a shame it’s a shame
Both of us got so lost
And it’s a shame it’s a shame it’s a shame because
It’s two and it’s tomorrow and it’s too dark to walk alone
And it’s two and it’s tomorrow and now we got nowhere else to go
Track Name: Supermoon
I changed my ways cause you
You didn’t approve what I was changing into
Well I made a mistake giving into you

This town and its tame expectations
I fell in hate with its lame aggravations
And I’m ready to wear a hole
Through these shoes and these city walls

So sign me off
Turn me in
Give me up
Oh just let me live
Don’t say

I got nowhere to go
I got nothing to trust
Cause if we got love
Then it’ll be enough

My lead foot brought me here but I still
Can’t tell what makes me feel way
Like our train fell off its tracks
Now if there’s no way out
We gotta go back

So sign me off
Turn me in
Give me up
Oh just let me live
Don’t say

I got nowhere to go
I got nothing to trust
Cause if we got love
Then it’ll be enough
Track Name: Lucid and Strange
Lucid and strange
I take the bus away from home
Away from the false sense of the city I dream about
Light shies its way in through my window and into my delirium
Tonight I don’t wanna
Show my face or what I feel
Cause I don’t know
What happened to make it this way
It’s no one’s fault
But I’m surely faltering

With every passing minute I picture
Autumn’s falling leaves and winter's stay
It’s lasted too long
Alternating squares that stray from grey under leather
Do I draw you in or set you off?
Tonight I don’t wanna do either
I just wanna be alone
But not this lonely
Track Name: Promises, Promises
Face up cause I have to now
The promises we made are nowhere to be found
Scribbled out the words we said
Now there’s just no story to tell

And if there was would you
(Hear me)
Hear me out?
(Hear me)
And if there was would you
(Hand it)
Hand it out
(Hand it)
Like you did

Promises, promises
Never seem to last the way you think
Scribbled out the words we meant
Now they just don’t mean a thing

And if they did would you
(Live)
Live them out
(Live)
And if they did would you
(Give)
Give them out
(Give)
Like you did
Track Name: It'll Be Me
Breaking in these shoes I bought
With all the cash I didn’t want
I didn’t earn my pay
There goes another day fled
We paid off all of our debt
But what have we made?
What have we made?

But another mess
And another mess down the same dead end
And I lost my mind and I lost my time
But I found the med
That made it seem okay
Under the moon
But never in the morning

Don’t write me a song don’t sing me to sleep
Let me go
Yeah it’s the best secret to keep

If I let you take again
Well there’ll be nothing left
I’ve tried to stay
But staying has started to break me
And I’m seeing red
Fighting these serpents in my head
Oh what have they made?
What have they made?

But another mess
And another mess down the same dead end
And I lost my mind and I lost my time
But I found the med
That made it seem okay
Under the moon
But never in the morning

Don’t write me a song don’t sing me to sleep
Let me go
Yeah it’s the best secret to keep
Track Name: Wherever We Want
Been wishing to live a little louder
I know you have too
Been reminiscent about the past
Alone but it’s better with you

Been trying to keep a little distance
Have I lost my head
We can go wherever we want to

Yeah we can dance through the days baby
Living it up through the common haze baby
Or we can run
Yeah we can pass through the days baby
Listening up to what the critics say
Or we can run
Yeah we can be fancy and safe
And give our dreams a different name
For the betterment of everyone else’s mind
Or we can leave it all behind
Won’t you leave it all behind with me

Been sitting here dusting off pages
Of places I don’t care to know
I’m pretty sick to my stomach
Moving along just doing what I’m told

Yeah we can dance through the days baby
Living it up through the common haze baby
Or we can run
Yeah we can pass through the days baby
Listening up to what the critics say
Or we can run
Yeah we can be fancy and safe
And give our dreams a different name
For the betterment of everyone else’s mind
Or we can leave it all behind
Won’t you leave it all behind with me
Track Name: Oh (Don't) Go
I fell in as quick as you fell out of us
Nothing but you still tattoos my skull
You're different than the others
I say every time as the colors of you seep through my mind
Effortlessly but cause so much pain
You're just used to change
Well it's not going away for me
It's not as easy

Oh go and have your dreams about your perfect girl
I wish I was she, but I’m not
Oh go and live your life, it was nice by your side
I wish you were mine, but you’re not
Oh go Just go Don’t go x2

Once again I’m left with just regret
You’ve called it off
So different than the others
And as you leave I feel the heat start to burn the ink away
Effortlessly but, cause so much pain
To feel you walk away when what we were had just begun

Oh go and have your dreams about your perfect girl
I wish I was she, but I’m not
Oh go and live your life, it was nice by your side
I wish you were mine, but you’re not
Oh go Just go Don’t go x2
Track Name: Do Any Good
Every week feels like a new beginning
I’m running and like a waster
I’ve tried everything
But it does no good

This game I play I hate
But I can’t set the crave astray

It’s the reason for my loneliness
Not the remedy
And it sticks by the times I cry
But its ritual is so sickening

It justifies the past by shattering now
Gives me shelter beneath its darkest clouds
Oh let me out of it
I’m through with giving in

I don’t wanna carry it around
It’s stressing and wearing and tearing me down
Yeah it does no good

But this suspension in time
This trance set to my mind
It wears me thin

It’s the reason for my loneliness
Not the remedy
And it sticks by the times I cry
But its ritual is so sickening

It justifies the past by shattering now
Gives me shelter beneath its darkest clouds
Oh let me out of it
I’m through with giving in
I’m through with giving in
Track Name: Greener Then
Sick because I want
It doesn't make a difference that I only want one thing
You
Used to talk me to sleep
I used to walk out in the dark
Used to think I was unbreakable
Now I know I'm not
And all our plans are drifting and here we are
Nothing has stared me in the eye for so long screaming love
Yet we fight it because goodbye is too hard
I should’ve told you too much
I should've known but I screwed up
When there was so much left to do
I knew it too
And here we are
I’m still up for it
But I’m sick
Because I think you changed your mind
I woulda told you how I need you when I saw you
But I was greener then
I should've told you too much
I should've known but I screwed up
Just never thought I was any good
I get choked up each time I talk
Then I go home and I pick myself apart
Yeah my anxiety gets the best of me
I'm sick of wearing a mask
Because I know you deserve better than that
I should’ve told you too much
I should’ve known but I screwed up
I wrote you a song that night
But I was greener then
Too green to sing it to you
And here we are
Waiting for the spring to melt the snow
And you don't know
And you don't know

I'd take the night train straight to where the track ends
I'd take the night train straight to where the track ends
I'd take the night train straight to where the track ends
I'd take the night train straight to where the track ends
I miss you
Track Name: Shadows
Painted picture on my wall
It’s gonna fade
Without the sun it’ll be gone ‘till another day
Streetlight shine
It feels like snow

And I feel so high
I feel so low
