Track Name: Disconnected
i'm feeling disconnected
to the joy in a fleeting moment
i'm at a party
and my eyes are barely open
don't take a step closer
if I can feel you
I just might blow it
I'm disconnected
and if my tone doesn't give it away
then my actions will surely show it
sometimes in our life we have to enter a darkness
to see things in a new light
but I'm at the other end
and I'll never be the same again.
I'm feeling disconnected
to the joy in a fleeting moment
I'm at a party
and my eyes are barely open
sometimes in our lives we have to enter a darkness
to see things in a new light
but I'm at the other end
and the door back in is locked behind me
Track Name: Calendar Lines
another night on the bathroom floor
filth is resting beside my head
I can't do this anymore
grinding teeth through my jaw
I get up and face the world
with a smile and nod
isn't it a pathetic waste of life
to give up
before you even try
we're trying to live
in our spare time
filling in blanks between calendar lines
they can smell it on my breath
they can see it in my eyes
bloodshot and red
am I already dead
are we living lies
the truth is in our eyes
but we won't like what we find
we hold on
to the night
like thirsty vampires
we throw away
all our days
we're going
insane
Track Name: The Forgetting
a phone call today
the result of thoughts of you
remind me of
all the things we used to do
all the things we used to do
and all the times we had
we didn't appreciate
and now we want it back
it's not getting any easier
being so far away
there's no hope for us
there's only forgetting
our words don't matter when
our actions shatter every promise we make
we're both guilty and
the emotions settle on me
all these words about you
run around inside my mind
I put them to song
for your ears to find
it's not getting any easier
being so far away
it's not getting any easier
there's only forgetting
Track Name: Warm Beer and Long Goodbyes
I'm sorry to leave you here with tears and warm beer. If you're angry you have every right. It's not what we dreamed but it's the way it's got to be. I know it hurts but I will make it right. So, I'm leaving for a road unknown and I don't know if I'll be all right but I want you to know that although I've gotta go I'll be missing you every single night. Because I'm tired of living in calendar lines. I'm tired of warm beer and long goodbyes. Over and over again, I'm tired of losing and watching my friends move on.
Track Name: Bummer
I'm down
icing first to the ground
candles lit
no wishes to be made
just misery that wants to be left alone
irony no one appreciates
sometimes I'm so
sick of myself
I take everyone down with me
I'm down
icing first to the ground
candles lit
no wishes to be made
watch out
here I come
I'm such a bummer
pretend to look away
Track Name: Six Pints
I can't convince you that in my arms is where you ought to be
if you don't feel it by now then maybe you ought to leave
my mind used to hold a well of inspiration
but lately I drank my thoughts dry
another six pints of amnesia
I can't convince you
that in my arms is where you ought to be
if you don't feel it by now
Track Name: Shivers
the ghost in your room
keep me safe from the demons in my head
in a search for understanding
I made my way out of bed
made my way into your
bed and now
you keep me up at night
just to hear you cry
the summer wind
is growing old
and this house is growing cold
just keep my love from shaking now
you're a ghost in my head
I wonder if I'll see you again
would you see me again?
well, here's to us
and what we'll never be
cheers to whatever may come
of you and me
the summer wind
is growing old
and this house is growing cold
just keep my love from shaking now
you know I loved to hold you
I know you felt the same way too
you know I loved to hold you
I know you felt the same way
Track Name: Old Knives
this crowd of voltures been pickin on me
since I was naive
I should have seen you gathering stones
armed for your duplicity
note my derisive tone
perhaps you think it's been too long
it's not something to get over
it's a point to drive home
you never stifled me
I was the one who left
you'll never win while I'm still free
we all know by now
that you put me down
around my old crowd
but look who's happy now
no one could like you less
I remember your bitterness
but dont put your jealousy to rest
your envy always hurt you best
you never stifled me
I was the one who left
and you'll never win while
I'm still free
All the old knives
That have rusted in my back
I drive in yours
you always wanted a song
now you can sing along
Track Name: Downtown
you spend your free time downtown
but i live downtown
and the magic is gone for me
the lights will be shining
they're big and bright and
things aren't easy to see

like my friends and our drinks
i'm too blind to see
that I'll miss them when I'm gone

what won't you do for me
oh, my city
may I never really know

in the autumn I fall in love
with the chill in my bones
and the taste of the air
on these late nights alone
isn't it funny how
getting closer to death
is what makes us feel alive

with my friends and our drinks
I'll be to drunk to see
that I'll miss them when they're gone

what won't you do for me
oh my city
may I never really know
if I ever leave my friends
let me come back again
and still call you home

you spend your free time downtown
and I'm always downtown
why don't you call for me?
when you've got worries
the noise and the hurry
will be waiting there with me

with our friends and our drinks
let's get too drunk to think
of how we'll miss them when they're gone
Track Name: There's No Crying In Baseball
I can't believe I let you sell me short
I can't believe I let someone so cold
get so close

I waited for you
longer than I should
and I gave to you
more than you
ever could
October nights
are so warm without you around
and every birthday is a party
that never lets me down
consider yourself
a stranger to me now

You take for granted the hills of the earth
I moved them for you
now I set fire
to this world

in the distance between you and I
You gave up
but I survived
in the space between your heart and mind
there's a path with no hope to find
in the distance between you and I
you gave up but I survived
in the space between your heart and mind
there's no love, no love to find
