Track Name: In My Story You're The Villain (But To Everyone Else You're Still The Reigning Queen)
I'm counting the paces to your bedroom floor
Taking note of everyone moment that I
Played the fool you took me for
It's so pathetic that I couldn't let this go
And maybe it's a long shot but I hope that you can
See me as I am now

So I'll count on tomorrow
I'll beg and I'll borrow
My way back to you
When it's all I can do not to waste away these days
I worked so hard not to be replaced

So just take a second breath
And breathe in words unsaid
When you and I were rolling in the sheets
Between the memories

Someday, somehow
We'll find a better way out
But for now, I'll bite my tongue
This hit and run has left me with a hole
Where heart and home should go
And we know that there's no silver lining
Love in life is fucked I'm finding
That I am so alien to my own skin
"What's the worst that could happen?"

I'm getting caught up in a metaphor
I used to cut you out of every line
Out of sight and out of mind
This is a relapse into my old ways
I've been strung out and waiting this storm out for days
To keep my head above water from the high that I get
From your lips to my skin I could never forget.

Take a second breath
And breathe in words unsaid when
You and I were nothing but the remnants of a dream.

Someday, somehow
We'll find a better way out
But for now, I'll bite my tongue
This hit and run has left me with a hole
Where heart and home should go
And we know that there's no silver lining
Love in life is fucked I'm finding
That I am so alien to my own skin
"What's the worst that could happen?"

Someday, somehow
I'll find a better way out
But for now I'll write my songs
They'll sing along in every broken home
From here to San Francisco
And we know that there's no silver lining
Love in life is fucked we're finding
That sometimes it's the ride and not the win
We were the worst that could happen.
Track Name: Winnetka
Cheap beer and cheap regrets
In the form of every word I said
That's swimming circles in my head
Like a broken record that's playing our songs
I never found the words to sing it right

Deadbeat lovers of a generation we don't understand
How can anybody be like them?
We live for the moment and we die for the goddamn thrill
Last ditch brothers in a world so jaded
Passed out drinking in our best friends basement
Don't count us out we're comin' home tonight

I'm getting sick of these late nights
When we're so damn far from home
And everybody that I know is telling me this is the end
(Hey Hey)
You can only hold me down for so long
Memories remain long after you're gone
It could be a lost cause
A long shot
A martyr for their magazines

Deadbeat lovers of a generation we don't understand
How can anybody be like them?
We live for the moment and we die for the goddamn thrill
Last ditch brothers in a world so jaded
Passed out drinking in our best friends basement
Don't count us out we're comin' home tonight

Deadbeat lovers of a generation we don't understand
How can anybody be like them?
We live for the moment and we die for the goddamn thrill
Last ditch brothers in a world so jaded
Passed out drinking in our best friends basement
Don't count us out we're comin' home tonight

Deadbeat lovers of a generation we don't understand
How can anybody be like them?
We live for the moment and we die for the goddamn thrill
Last ditch brothers in a world so jaded
Passed out drinking in our best friends basement
Don't count us out we're comin' home tonight
Track Name: When The Truth Comes Out
Well I guess that it's all over now
So let this fucking silence take its bow
I guess we were too caught up
Just products
You can't blame the way that we were brought up
Our memories are bittersweet
and just a little bit toxic

That's just how the story goes
I don't wanna know if you're alone tonight
Beautiful and wasted
Let the sun comes up on new horizons
We can watch old flames burn out
As we forget what we lost
When the truth comes out

Do you remember when we were young?
Our days were numbered and the nights were never long enough
We worked too hard, too fast
But it was one hell of a summer
I hope this is the soundtrack of your year


That's just how the story goes
I don't wanna know if you're alone tonight
Beautiful and wasted
Let the sun comes up on new horizons
We can watch old flames burn out
As we forget what we lost
When the truth comes out


That's just how the story goes
I don't wanna know if you're alone tonight
Beautiful and wasted
Let the sun comes up on new horizons
We can watch old flames burn out
As we forget what we lost
When the truth comes out
Track Name: Four On The Floor
I took a shot in the dark and I missed it
They cut me off but I found another fix in
The form of vices tired and cliche
Let's paint this town with our regrets
Cause there's a method to our madness
We just haven't found it yet

Turn the music up
Cause I don't wanna feel a thing anymore
We're all just a shot away
From love or an early grave
Intoxicated by our generations glow of desperation

Lipstick stains on the collar of a late night
We fell asleep together
And woke up alone
We hollowed bones and weathered skin
Our bedroom eyes will count us in
So here's a chorus for us all to just forget

Turn the music up
Cause I don't wanna feel a thing anymore
We're all just a shot away
From love or an early grave
Intoxicated by our generations glow of desperation

I know it's only temporary
But there's a fire in my veins tonight
And she is dress to kill
For all those cheap thrills
I am chasing down
Placebo highs

Turn the music up
Cause I don't wanna feel a thing anymore
We're all just a shot away
From love or an early grave
Intoxicated by our generations glow of desperation
Track Name: Months Gone By
You can't break me
I've been alone for a long time now
And it's an art form in the way of words
When your vice is a virtue
Does it even concern you at all?

Cause we wrote our names in brick and mortar
To keep our lives from caving in.

I'm moving on
From these cold suburban streets
Cause i'm 20 years older with nothing to show for
All the shit I've seen
So you can paint me picture perfect
Or tear me, tear me down
We're gonna breathe new life into these shattered bones
And turn this scene back around

You can find me six feet underneath
The sleeping sidewalks of an empty street
It's so misleading
Can you hear the constant ringing?

Cause we wrote our names in sticks and stones
Temporary like the autumn turns to snow

I'm moving on
From these cold suburban streets
Cause i'm 20 years older with nothing to show for
All the shit I've seen
So you can paint me picture perfect
Or tear me, tear me down
We're gonna breathe new life into these shattered bones
And turn this scene back around

Tonight I'll lie awake
Gazing out upon the snow covered hills
As they shine in the moonlight
I see better days
It's only a matter of time
I'm on my way
Track Name: She Could've Sank The Titanic
Is this all that I am?
A passing trend?
A boy to dress in the latest sin?
A self-inflicted model?
Set a crash course for the fall
Cause you can take that little black dress
And the way you dull my senses
With the way you fabricate it
I fucking hate it
I fucking hate you

Cause you're dragging me down, down, down
And like a sinking ship, I'll drown
In a sea of desperation
I'm a wreck of placation
Going down, down, down
We're just a washed up, burnt out picture now
Of a long lost love too dead to be
So we buried it at sea

I'm gonna make you regret this
You better bet this song's about you
When you're staring through the bottom of a bottle
Another late last call mistake
Well you can take that little black label
To dull the pain as much as you are able to breathe
You say it's only temporary

Cause you're dragging me down, down, down
And like a sinking ship, I'll drown
In a sea of desperation
I'm a wreck of placation
Going down, down, down
We're just a washed up, burnt out picture now
Of a long lost love too dead to be
So we buried it at sea

Cause you're dragging me down, down, down
And like a sinking ship, I'll drown
In a sea of desperation
I'm a wreck of placation
Going down, down, down
We're just a washed up, burnt out picture now
Of a long lost love too dead to be
So we buried it at sea
Track Name: The Very Best (Of A Bad Situation)
Oh please believe me when I say
That I know you always had
The best intentions for yourself
With such a pretty fucking face
Yeah it's such a shame
That your plastic smile can't hide all the stains

So if you need a friend
Well you won't find in him in the Captain, honey
Cause I know your type
You're gonna fake it til you're jaded
And I hate it

You were the worst thing
The worst thing that I've ever wanted
The first in a lifetime spent wasting my breath
On a bender of self-medication
I think you were the worst thing
The worst thing
The worst thing was falling in love

I guess I should've known when the lights went out
You're not the type to kiss and tell
I hope you choke on every word you ever speak of me

You were the worst thing
The worst thing that I've ever wanted
The first in a lifetime spent wasting my breath
On a bender of self-medication
I think you were the worst thing
The worst thing
The worst thing was falling in love

And all my friends say move on
Quit living in the past
(Fuck you)

You were the worst thing
The worst thing that I've ever wanted
The first in a lifetime spent wasting my breath
On a bender of self-medication
I think you were the worst thing
The worst thing
The worst thing was falling in love

You were the worst thing, the worst thing that I ever wanted
You were the worst thing, the worst thing that I ever wanted
The worst thing , the worst thing that I ever want wanted
You were the worst thing, the worst thing, the worst thing was falling in love
Track Name: All My Friends Have Real Jobs
Welcome to the second chapter
Of my "happy ever after"
There's some things that just won't ever change
Like how the weather wears on my composure
Or the way I lack in closure
You never really cared anyways

I'm moving on
I'm moving forward
it's time to take back
Take back everything

I don't ever wanna turn back time
Cause if the seasons change, then so can I
Maybe it's better off
Maybe I'm better off
Dedicated to everything I lack
With every word I left unspoken
I fell in love with the thought of another chance at life
For one more night

My heart goes out
To every crocodile tear
A broken record through the years
And I'd rather hear the static of a stationary life
Than another moment living in the past.

I don't ever wanna turn back time
Cause if the seasons change, then so can I
Maybe it's better off
Maybe I'm better off
Dedicated to everything I lack
With every word I left unspoken
I fell in love with the thought of another chance at life
For one more night

I don't ever wanna turn back time
Cause if the seasons change, then so can I
Maybe it's better off
Maybe I'm better off
Dedicated to everything I lack
With every word I left unspoken
I fell in love with the thought of another chance at life
For one more night
This time I swear I'm gonna get it right
Track Name: I'd Rather Be Homesick Than Home
13 hours on the drive home
But who's counting?
13 hours 'til I'm right back where I started
Back to basics
To the basement
To the nights we waste away
Under watchful eyes we'll find a reason
'Cause this is what it's like to be set free

I've sold my soul for a minimum wage
Working night after night for the chance to escape
To my youths naivety
A false reality
A fall from grace and a loss of gravity
Keeps me standing on the ground
When the words fall silent from my mouth
From pages torn by my own hands
I will learn to live and try it again

13 hours on the drive home
But who's counting?
13 hours 'til I'm right back where I started
Back to basics
To the basement
To the nights we waste away
Under watchful eyes we'll find a reason
'Cause this is what it's like to be set free

Paycheck to paycheck
Dust to dust
You can't take it with you
You can't count on lust
For all of the good things to get through the bad
'Cause what's left is nothing
And it's all that you have
And it's all that you need
We're born in the ashes of vanity
But oh I'm just fine
Walking down the line
Of a life less traveled
And I'm gonna do what's right

13 hours on the drive home
But who's counting?
13 hours 'til I'm right back where I started
Back to basics
To the basement
To the nights we waste away
Under watchful eyes we'll find a reason
'Cause this is what it's like to be set free

13 hours on the drive home
But who's counting?
13 hours 'til I'm right back where I started
Back to basics
To the basement
To the nights we waste away
Under watchful eyes we'll find a reason
'Cause this is what it's like to be set free

13 hours on the drive home
But who's counting?
13 hours 'til I'm right back where I started
Back to basics
To the basement
To the nights we waste away
Under watchful eyes we'll find a reason
The tides will turn we'll run to greet them
For all of our mistakes we'll see
That this is what it's like to be set free
Track Name: New Age Juliet
Have you ever met a girl called Kill?
I think she goes by Anesthesia
Cause her voice is sweet like novocaine
And twice as numbing
I'm addicted, I'll admit it
Her blue-green eyes and her silver tongue
Are like a hook in a chorus
And I won't sing it in vain

She's a hurricane in a sundress
Fire in her veins like a cigarette
Burning suburbia down from the inside out
And there's no doubt when she smiles I feel something
So incredible
So raise a toast now forever and after to something beautiful

We fell in love in the backseat of my car
Me and the girl called Anesthesia
Cause her lips taste just like poison ivy
Toxic and enticing
What a mess
She's my Lenore, my muse, my new age Juliet
And I won't forget
And I won't love her in vain

She's a hurricane in a sundress
Fire in her veins like a cigarette
Burning suburbia down from the inside out
And there's no doubt when she smiles I feel something
So incredible
So raise a toast now forever and after to something beautiful

Don't forget me when I
Don't forget me when I
Don't forget me when I'm not longer quite so naive.

She is a harmony of misheard lyrics
And a bittersweet melody that plagues my tongue
Staining the pages of another love sick story
And I'm so sorry

We were the best and worst in a long line of first times
