Track Name: Dire
You told me lies
You couldn’t fake it through your smile
And it was perfect til your were caught
Redder hands make bigger marks
And I was scarred

So are you in dire need of some attention boy?
cause I’m not ready to give any to you

You swore that I
would be the only one you desired
And so you fooled me into a crime
where we pretend there is no fault
You were wrong

So are you in dire need of some attention boy?
cause I’m not ready to give any to you
Track Name: Paradise
Would you stay here down the road when you are old?
Could you call this home?
Well I’ve never lived outside this place
It’s never cold in the winter

-But I can’t call this much of a paradise those are far and few
Could you believe this town is a well-made lie?
Is this city life for you?
Are we playing safe or do we belong?
Will I ever pack my things and run?
Well I’m not moving, until the road sings “move along”

Well we take turns between love & hate
There’s no control of this cities mood
So I’m over everyones complaints
If your on you own is it hard to swallow?

But I can’t call this much of a paradise those are far and few
Could you stay in a town that is oh so quiet
Are white picket fences for you?
Are we playing safe or do we belong?
Will I ever pack my things and run?
Well I’m not moving, until the road screams “move along”

Are we home? We are home, looks like we’re home
Track Name: Cave
I didn’t even know that you could run
cause I have only seen you crawl
oh how fast we grow
In light on all the time we’ve wasted I could not
deny that something made our cheeks blush red but I can’t say

Why I try, can’t point the blame
Cause now I’m tired of listening

Did your heart cave?

Cave

Did it cave?

Well I never felt the rush until you had me
lying there just flesh and bone
Oh somehow we grew
And I never seemed to care until you spoke
in my ear so soft and slow, just like before...

And now we’re trying to listen in
Stay hush, stay quiet, until it we hear...

Did your heart cave?

Cave

Did it cave? Oh it caved
Track Name: Give & Take
Was she starting a war in this place?
“Is the somewhere to go? Take me away”
As her hand waves along in the air
Is she bidding a last farewell?

-And it looked like there was nothing left on her smile
And if only she could hold her breathe under water
All that sinking would somehow be worth the while
It’s hard to say the rain is both give and take

It’s not a permanent cast on that break
Like the bones that’ll mend, oh it’ll be ok
And the damage is done, hope she’ll see
That as soon as she begins to swim it’s a remedy that’s what she needs
Track Name: Don't Miss Me
I thought you left me here to dry
I’ve stayed so you wouldn’t seem
too shaked by shivers down your spine
when guilt is just not yours to keep

-So don’t miss me

Even if we had all the time
Somehow you’d constantly seek
hours away, oh how lonely I
would be there sitting waiting

So don’t miss me

Just how lucky were we to be saved
on the day that we both walked away
If it was too detrimental then why’d we ever play these games?

Oh don’t miss me

I thought you left me here to cry
good thing the feeling didn’t keep
who could replace you? who will try?
that still remains to be seen

So don’t miss me
Track Name: Losing Track
So we’ve been sorting out just how long it’s been
We’re aging by the minute, is it graceful or unfair?
Have you compared your life to those former peers?
We’re curious who’s living better off or who might fail

Should we care?

-Lost track of time on this plane ride
Have we arrived to the end? Can we land?
Because up here we can fly
Only for a few a hours at a times
Please don’t crash
Cause I’ve lost track of all traffic signs

So we’ve been sorting out just how long it’s been
We’re slowly gaining nothing from our efforts to unveil
All of these wishful thoughts of tipping all those scales
Are we caught off balance? It won’t matter in the end

I won’t care
Track Name: Stranger City
It was May, the end of spring
Packed all our things to move up the street
Always hear the city engines speak
There is no quiet, but we’re quite settled in

Over Broadway, Stranger City

Take the train down the open lines
Drive through the traffic stalls, walk when the sign flashes on
So they ask, “what’d you get yourself into?”
The kind of living that us reckless youth can’t spare to do

Over Broadway, Strangest City

Just a little close to the open sky
Just a shorter drive to the oceanside
We can’t get away cause we’re making a wage
day by day we stare over this place

Now I’m sure the year has just begun
all this time we’ve still been staring right up at the sun
So we’ll test the only sights to see
Living blindly here over Broadway
Track Name: There's A Storm Coming In
I could not see the moon anymore
I could not hear the clouds rolling through
I was caught in the rain before I knew
I was gone, swept away deep into

The storm

Tie the line to the nearby steady holds
Try to find those people who’ll save you soon
By the looks of it we might make it to the
otherside safe and sound this afternoon

-I wasn’t there, oh I swear
These tides just test our will
Track Name: Temper Tampered
Caught screaming “loves a lie” to our dismay
You said it’d be alright, that we would sleep

So baby please, lie here and stay with me
These cuts don’t bleed because it’s just a little dream

-Now I know you’ll stay and make believe
This time around things still might change
But when I’m gone you’re on your own to walk alone
Temper Tampered-we’ve outgrown

So quick did we arrive only to leave
That need to fill desire just made us weak

So call me cheap, and it won’t cost a thing
Those words don’t sting much when nobody’s listen

-Now I know you’ll stay and make believe
This time around things still might change
But when I’m gone you’re on your own to walk alone
Temper, Tampered, We’ve outgrown


Temper, Tampered, We’ve Outgrown
