Track Name: A Calendar Of Small Disappointments
The path you walk is due to let you know
The path you walk is sure to let you go
The streets are empty and lined with rusted dreams
We can reinvent and redissect but never get to what it means

You’ve spent half your life obsessing with a ghost
Forgetting all the people that you miss and love the most
So spin the world around and bring it back to where it began
You can try and try but it won’t come back, it can’t come back again

I’ve made up my mind
I’m not wasting my time
I’m tired of the routine
And I am coming clean
There’s better days ahead
The future hasn’t been read
Are we who we need to be
This is coming clean

Swallowed whole by the time we’ve spent asleep
This sunken town lies forever underneath our feet
Red signs everywhere, blue words in the leaves
Split the difference, make the mythos, whatever it is you need

I’ve made up my mind
I’m not wasting my time
I’m tired of the routine
And I am coming clean
There’s better days ahead
The future hasn’t been read
I’m not who I need to be
This is coming clean

I’ve been waiting for this
With every chance that I’ve missed
So I stand up straight take my place
Get shot down, fall on my face
This world is overrated
And I am old and jaded
I’ll stand up straight, take my place
Get shot down, fall on my face
I’m not looking for a revelation
All I’ve wanted is a revolution
So take this as the sign:
You’ll get yours
I’ve got mine

I’ve made up my mind
I’m not wasting my time
I’m tired of the routine
And I am coming clean
There’s better days ahead
The future hasn’t been read
We are who we need to be
I am coming clean
Track Name: Joyce Kilmer Avenue
It’s easier to say what I don’t know
And wait for tomorrow
“I’m sorry, that’s just how it has to be”
It’s what they said to me
“You’ll make it through somehow”
And I will, I do
I will, I do

And say
“Everything will be okay.
Just take it day by day.
You can’t live your life in yesterday.”
That’s what they say

And I see as in a mirror darkly
And it’s awfully lonely waiting for you to wake up
Please wake up
I’m not getting better
I’m not getting better
When better is years behind me
And all I do is look ahead

And say
“Everything will be okay.
Just take it day by day.
You can’t live your life in yesterday.”
That’s what they say

They always say
That you know what you have to be
But I can’t without you standing with me
I’m sorry
I’m sorry
I’m sorry
I wish you were here to see
What I could be
What you could be
And I see
And I see
You and me
You and me
Track Name: Things I Probably Won't Regret
All my friends are dead
They’ve grown up they’ve settled down
They’ve fallen off, they’re leaving town
But hey: I’m still standing
Remember when we said
We’d all change the world someday
Then we threw it all away
In hopes of something better

Don’t say you won’t
Become what you don’t know
It’s okay to be afraid
The world gets darker every day
But better’s just a word away

We can build this again
(it’s not the end)
Just keep your head up and don’t forget it
We can build this again
(it’s not the end)
The world won’t end until we let it
We get it

Alone at the bar again
Nothing’s getting any better
Maybe that’s why I’m so bitter,
Man, I thought that I was above this
But I’ll still get up and sing
About all those late nights and tragedies
And turning them into time machines
And how I’ll eventually get over it

Don’t say you won’t
Become what you don’t know

We can build this again
(it’s not the end)
Just keep your head up and don’t forget it
We can build this again
(it’s not the end)
The world won’t end until we let it
We get it

This is not another bitter love song
Its not about how it went all wrong
But I always thought that I’d be better than this

The world won’t end until we let it
And we get it
Track Name: Rewrite (Your) History
Let’s take a step back
Never knowing what the left hand’s doing
Or the right hand’s singing
And my history is not for sale
Our history is not for sale
I can withstand the attacks
But nothing’s cool and nothing matters
As nostalgia sets its goals
We just keep getting older, we keep getting older

Straighten up, and fly right
I keep the faith, just to get by
And keep going over and over
It’s just one more thing we’ve broken
It’s just one more thing we’re owed

And I’m afraid
That like a stone I’m skipping
On the surface of the waves
Until this ocean swallows me
And I’m afraid
That with every step I’m tripping
Across the point of my return
To the ending of everything

Let’s take another step back
This isn’t how I wanted this story to go on
And I could just go on, if that’s okay
Is that okay
I’m tired of buying in
And selling out
And dragging out
And calling out
And finding out that
Nothing is ever how it should be

So I straighten up, and fly right
Keep my mouth shut just to get by
And end getting nowhere I want to go
Setting fire to what we used to know
Setting fire to what we used to know
It’s not about what we used to know
This history is a joke

And I’m afraid
That like a stone I’m skipping
On the surface of the waves
Until this ocean swallows me
And I’m afraid
That with every step I’m tripping
Across the point of my return
To the ending of everything

I was trying I change the world
Now I want something to change for me
Okay I guess we’re even
I guess we know the score
Walking on the bottom of the ocean
How further til I find the floor
I’m still trying to save the world
But no one’s listening anymore

And I’m afraid
That like a stone I’m skipping
On the surface of the waves
Until this ocean swallows me
And I’m afraid
That with every step I’m tripping
Across the point of my return
To the ending of everything
Track Name: Bones
Dragging my feet through the corpse of the morning
This summer arrived without purpose or warning
Thunder and lightning and everything’s downpours
A sudden conclusion to a winter of Cold War

There’s no waiting
I am fading
To my bones
Sing the melody
Of what I used to be
It’s almost gone

Crowding the windows to look out for the future
It’s hard to agree when I can’t tear out the sutures
From sewing myself into my newest landslide
There’s a darkness ahead that is eating up my time

Still we fight on
And still we run
For the truth
That when the light comes
When my times done
I’ll look for you

Til my breath’s gone
This is my one song
It’s all for you
