Track Name: Bored With Booze
The sounds combining will serve as a silver lining

And those nights kept close to you will slowly but surely save your life

I’m bored with booze and cigarettes but I recall some days when that was not the case

Sending smoke signals from West Village and singing songs about the good old days

Yeah I remember the nights of not remembering shit with my best friends

And those nights kept close to you will slowly but surely save your life

And the sounds combining will serve as a silver lining

I’m bored with booze and cigarettes but I recall some days when that was not the case

Sending smoke signals from West Village and singing songs about the good old days

Yeah I remember the nights of not remembering shit with my best friends
Track Name: Day One
When everyday is New Year’s Eve and every night is Halloween and everything in between is lost

The shaky hands and the part time job are getting older faster than you thought

And you’re losing a staring contest with a clock

Is it a matter of waiting

And is there something worth saving

Is it a matter of time until your biggest secret’s out

Your brain casing is misshapen, your chemicals are unbalanced

But you’re lucky enough to notice that right now

The doctors and your friends agree, your behavior has changed recently

You’re scared to be something that never was

Is it a matter of waiting

And is there something worth saving

Is it a matter of time until your biggest secret’s out

I suppose that it’s normal to feel like you’ve lost control

When you no longer trust yourself anymore
Track Name: Heaven in Hell
Nobody died but some of us came close

Was it a matter of time or luck or maybe both?

Nobody died but some of us came close

There’s a holy mess and a ship that’s sinking and a captain that has lost all feeling

And the plastic cups are piling up somewhere

There’s songs for brothers who still have ties to their real mothers and plans for their lives

There’s no men or women or children left behind

Oh and you never really know who you are gonna meet

There’s a Heaven in Hell and it’s called Rockaway Beach

Nobody died but some of us came close

Was it a matter of time or luck or maybe both?

Nobody died but some of us came close

When we made war by the city limits the waiting list began to hit us

And it only took a minute or two to fall in love

But spent the next six months avoiding everyone

There’s songs for sisters who still have ties to their real mothers and plans for their lives

There’s no men or women or children left behind

Oh and you never really know who you are gonna meet

There’s a Heaven in Hell and it’s called Rockaway Beach

Nobody died but some of us came close

Was it a matter of time or luck or maybe both?

Nobody died but some of us came close
Track Name: Eleventh Beer
And I'm on my 11th beer and no I didn't go out

And know I know I'm not proud

And know I know I'll never think I'll be

And if I hit reset on everything I'll be waiting once again for what could be nothing

Although I'm hiding from something

And if I hit reset on everything I'll be waiting once again for what could be nothing

For what could be the end of all, the end of all I have

And all the things I thought that I'd always wish I'd have

My nights are long term and my days are shorter

I don't know where to fucking begin

I don't know where to fucking begin

And I'm on my 11th beer and no I didn't go out

And no I know I'm not proud

And no I know I'll never think I'll be

And if I hit reset on everything I'll be waiting once again for what could be nothing

For what could be the end of all, the end of all I have

And all the things I thought that I'd always wish I'd have

My nights are long term and my days are shorter

I don't know where to fucking begin

I don't know where to fucking begin

And I'm lost and out of my mind

And for every moment that passes, I take a step towards the abyss

And I'm lost and out of my mind

The highways don't participate in anything I anticipate anymore
Track Name: Worth Every Mile
As every chapter ends another chapter starts

And for every friend you’ve forgotten take a step into the dark

The closer that you get to the white light up ahead

It will start to all come back and it will feel real once again

Saturdays spent on the open road in the middle of the night

No matter where you’re going now, you’ll start to feel alive

As another chapter ends another chapter starts

For every friend you’ve forgotten take a step into the dark


And it wasn’t written in stone

There’s no telephone to wait by

Just train tracks to walk along

Until the sun and air and moon are gone

Some say that it doesn’t take impossible strength to see

That the open road might never bring you back to me

Breath in, breath out, drown in all doubt

The trees and all the vines will one day overgrow

The cities that we knew and the places we called home

And somewhere in the ashes will be a three by five

Picture of you and me from the best days of our lives

As every chapter ends another chapter starts

And for every friend you’ve forgotten take a step into the dark

The look on your face will be worth every mile

From north and south and east and west, in acceptance and denial
Track Name: Year of the Ghost
The word on the street is that this is war

And you’re never gonna know what you’re looking for

I want your love

So I’ll tell you all the things that I think you wanna hear

I want your love

And none of this will matter in six months anyway

When you try to look back cus nothing stays the same

I want your love

So I’ll change who I am and act just like you

I want your love

This is the year of the ghost from lonely coast to lonely coast

This is the year that we’re gonna face our fears

These are the best days that you’ll ever have

So don’t look down and don’t look back

These are the best days that you’ll ever have again

So trust me friend

On the side of the road missing what I had

I drove past your house until I ran out of gas

I want your love

So I’ll borrow some money and keep driving around

I want your love

Falling head over heels for people I don’t know

When I’m scared to death of dying alone

I want your love

So I’ll borrow some money and keep driving around

I want your love

This is the year of the ghost from lonely coast to lonely coast

This is the year that we’re gonna face our fears

These are the best days that you’ll ever have

So don’t look down and don’t look back

These are the best days that you’ll ever have again

So trust me friend
Track Name: Fuck Apathy
I never want to go to bed

I never want to see the end of this

Or think about all the things I'll miss

My words don't mean shit anymore

I've cried wolf too many times to be trusted

And now I'm fucked

And I'm calling my friends to make sure they still exist

If I weren't afraid to leave the house

I'd have no excuse not to have real friends

But I guess it just depends on how

Scared out of my mind I am

Going to be alone is the worst plan

When you're fucked up

And I'm calling my friends to make sure they still exist

I'm not tired of talking but they're tired of hearing about this

The saddest songs should never end when you're getting drunk alone again

The saddest songs are always on repeat

The saddest songs should never end when you're halfway home alone again

The saddest songs are always on repeat.

Feel sorry for me.

If it weren't up to the powers at be all the blind faith would just become apathy

And fuck apathy

My hands can't move emotions or piece together my life like it was once before

And fuck apathy

And I'm calling my friends to make sure they still exist

I'm not tired of talking but they're tired of hearing about this

I wanna get high and go to the hospital and tell them I'm looking for someone

The saddest songs will never end when you're getting drunk alone again

The saddest songs are always on repeat

The saddest songs will never end when you're halfway home alone again

The saddest songs are always on repeat.

Feel sorry for me.
Track Name: Stranded
I don’t wanna get out of bed today

So tell the outside world to wait

I don’t wanna get out of bed today

So tell the outside world to go away

On the wrong side of the window on the right side of the fence

We’re bottled up and smashed over the head of present tense

Weary, indecisive, incomplete, and breaking down

I’m hiding in the shadows of this god forsaken town

And it will kill me before I ever kick myself for leaving you

If I could just see straight I would do the same thing too

You’re eager to be desperately pathetic when full grown

And blind enough to break the seams that blood and sweat have sewn

So try and fail and try again, and just rely on reliars then

To tell you when the going gets too tough

I’m randomly arranged in a disorganized routine

Of getting drunk in hopes that I’ll forget what I have seen

And it’s not my fault if I don’t recall what I’m apologizing for

I just want to go back to the way things were before

And I’ll plan to exit until I realize

That I am stranded in a milestone

Of drug abuse in broken homes

Losing track of misplaced thoughts

I once was found but now I’m lost

Attempting to complete the day

Against the odds with broken faith

I’m stranded, stranded, stranded, now
Track Name: Talking in Circles
Picture this I’m sitting there, under the gun and unprepared

With nothing to fear but being scared

Even when I walk the walk I still can’t bear to talk to the talk

And wishing on stars that never were is just a constant reminder

Behind a hearse at a stoplight

She fell asleep in the daylight

She never thought that she’d do that

But she never said that she wouldn’t

Between the floor and the new snow

She fell asleep in the window

She never thought that she’d do that

But she never said that she wouldn’t

Just like that conversation I remember having about this time last year

Avoiding eye contact with myself and that guy in the bathroom mirror

We were talking in circles and smoking some squares, grinning from ear to ear

I’ll never forget the times I spent replacing you with beer
Track Name: A Song for Best Friends
There’s still another story just around the bend

And you will never guess just where the story ends

Let’s go

You gotta stop trying to try too hard

The sabbatical is over but you’re living in the dark

Let’s go

I’m gonna fly in a bird’s eye view to the plains

To a place where everybody knows my name, no matter how long that it takes

Over the scarecrows and the scared people

Over the clouds and through all the steeples, and at the speed of sound

I will be bending light and turning my luck around

Traded every last cent that I thought I had

For the meaning of life but I was kind of disappointed

Woke up to a world that I didn’t recognize

And asked around too many times to find the winning side

I’m gonna walk in a bird’s eye view to the plains

To a place where everybody knows my name, no matter how long that it takes

Over the scarecrows and the scared people

Over the clouds and through all the steeples, and at the speed of sound

I will be bending light and turning my luck around

I traded everything that I thought I had

For the meaning of life but I was kind of disappointed

I’m gonna fly in a bird's eye view to the plains

To a place where everybody knows my name, and at the speed of sound

I will be bending light and turning my luck around

In a place surrounded by my favorite sounds

In a world that I won’t ever let me down
I will be bending light and turning my luck around
