Track Name: Riding in Cars with Bears
My thoughts are racing like a confused mindfucked wretch
Who taught the world about the sunrise to the west
Just another empty soul left to her task
Why waste your time having all of the common sense

Well I have had enough of the same old fucking songs
Take your problems
And I won't tag along

If I told you I was done this time would you believe a word I said?
If I only knew that you weren't who you said you were
My dignity would not have robbed me blind
Is that a lie?

Well, you tell me you like helping others so help yourself first
Or help me into the denial of your favorite words

This is a mess
One which I will not cleanse
And all I want’s the truth
You're lacking something too
And now it ends
You’re also a shitty friend

You left a trail of expectations when you hurried off that night
I understand why you cant face me
Is it better off this way?
Please don’t call or write me this time when you're freshly off my mind
My dignity has nothing to do with tonight

So if I can forget all that you provide
There’s nothing there
We'll say goodbye
The second hand ticks while the rest of time unwinds
There’s nothing left so say goodbye
Say goodbye!
Track Name: Half Dead in Hempstead
Took flight last winter
Just to see the snow on the ground
As it falls to earth
Through everything
We are guided wildly throughout this motion picture-like set you built for yourself last fall

We are the young ones
We lack all reasoning
If we claim what they have then we wouldn’t gain a thing
Why does the world decide to get involved when we are on a roll?
Just because our lives are unconventional

We are the young ones

Came all the way home
Just to see the looks on your faces when you found out high school was a joke
We are pushed on eagerly by all the smiles and egos of people we wish that we didn’t know

We are the young ones
We lack all reasoning
When we say what we feel then it doesn’t mean a thing
Why does the world decide to get involved and tell us what to do?
Deliberate the truth and push their views on you

We are the young ones

And don’t promise me the waves
Cause they can’t reach me where I stand
Caught off guard and close to shore
What lies beyond trails left in sand
Never will I ever try to figure it out
My mind’s in such an awful place to paint another piece of the picture plain and obvious to see
I think I’d rather have a chance than give up without even fighting for it
Time has been so very cruel to me

Took flight last winter
Just to see the snow on the ground
As it falls to earth
Through everything
We are guided wildly throughout this motion picture-like set you built for yourself last fall
Track Name: The Kindness of Strangers
Red dead dead in my sights again
I’m thinking clearly then
Let me take, let me take
One more time to feel again
Got it straight, got it straight
Gonna say it all again ‘cause I’m right
Burning up and I won’t go away

One more time can you expect to give it all but to take less?
Can you feel the beaten path of crimes untouched, a blackened past
See the light for what it’s worth
A second chance we don't deserve
I won't heal these wounds tonight
Fire away and go

Lie with every breath you take, but we can see
Cold, hard and in your hands, belong to me
And we won’t go away

So try to walk away
If you can feel it now
Try and see it now
And I can feel it now
And every little thing we take is ours

Rinse, rinse, rinse
Change my faith again
I question now and then
Everything, everything
One more lie to hear again
Had all I’ll take, all I’ll take
Gonna say it all again ‘cause I’m right
Burning up and I won’t go away

Mine now!
With every breathe we take we take
Track Name: Terrace and Bedell
Take my hand or come with me now
What’s the cost of judging that you cannot feel?
And I peer through the windy plains with my sense of blatant luck
I can control no longer
This ship is on its way to hell

This is the soundtrack to that beaten path that we’ve constructed
I won’t let anybody shake me

My life’s been smothered by the rain
And I have no one left to blame but it’s all that I can do
We all were obviously framed
So just take another look at all the evidence in front of you
Since when do we control our lives?
I’ll travel endlessly ‘til I decide

I know everybody’s out to get me

Tell me how it feels now to make it almost all the way without accomplishing nearly anything
And I know there’s no reason why you’re falling through the outer skies

This is the soundtrack to that beaten path that we’ve constructed
I won’t let anybody shake me
Free falling down
My lungs can’t grasp the air out this high
I won’t let anybody pass me

My life’s been smothered by the rain
And I have no one left to blame but it’s all that I can do
We all were obviously framed
So just take another look at all the evidence in front of you
Since when do we control our lives?
I’ll travel endlessly ‘til I decide
‘Til I decide

We’ll make more of what we have left
And try to question why the conclusion is always bittersweet
My voice is all I have
And I scream until the sun goes down as the rain starts to pour on my head

We lost what we didn’t have on a 20-to-1 longshot with a broken back
To kill me you must cover your tracks and try never to forget all that we had
We lost what we didn’t have on a 20-to-1 longshot, a 20-to-1 longshot
To kill me you must cover your tracks and try never to forget
Track Name: Midnight in Nagoya
We left our inhibitions standing in the doorway
All self-respecting involved left before we came

We left before the intake, disparaged and forlorn
What reputable members our brothers have become
And we are never far from visions formed by thought
Such intricate complications
What else can be done?

Just sit back and wander
With what will you achieve?
With arms wide open you can hardly breathe

Can you hear me when all the sounds start to play?
While our minds run wild
Just open your eyes
With whispers and broken words

Turn around or come with me while I protect all
I will not let you inside
It wasn’t me, it was tonight
I won’t let you change me this time
(Another chance of another change of mine)
I won’t let you drag me outside
(At least until tonight still shows daylight)
And I still see signs
And I can read between the lines
And I still see signs
I still see signs for miles and miles and miles

Well, at least I’m not alone
And at least I’ve got a home
Step back put everything away

Rebuke what you’ve done
The truth is never lost
Just hopelessly found

With everything we have we’ll pull together all our might to prevent what we lack
I think it’s limitless to fall for something filled with bliss and remember what it is
