Track Name: Two Years Too Late
Chorus: I wonder if I saw her, would she still have sparks in her eyes
And I wonder if she remembers that day we talked until it was night

Verse 1: There's a silence in the room that I'm too used to
And there are thoughts I can't escape, even though I'd love to

It's just another sleepless night,
these pointless questions that arrive about two years too late
Too painful to think through
Crooked pictures line the hall
These dusty faces I can't recall
But yours is clearer than the day I met you

Chorus: And I wonder if I saw her, would she still have sparks in her eyes
And I wonder if she remembers that day we talked until it was night

Verse 2: So I pour a few drinks, just to get through the night
to dilute all the thoughts and pretend that I am fine

(I'm over, I'm over, I'm over it)

It does nothing to mend,
it just dims the lights and adds to this growing fire inside

(I'm over, I'm over, I'm over it)

We were young and stupid, but we were happy
And now I'm drunk and broke and way too lonely

(I'm over, I'm over, I'm over it)

Chorus: And I wonder if I saw her, would she still have sparks in her eyes
And I wonder if she remembers that day we talked until it was night

Bridge: Wishing you were here

There was a time I thought we'd live forever,
but now I'm not certain, no now I'm not so certain
There was a time I thought we'd live forever,
but now I'm so certain, now we dropped the curtains down

Chorus: And I wonder if I saw her, would she still have sparks in her eyes
And I wonder if she remembers that day we talked until it was night
Track Name: Losing Streak
Caught in gaze, I just can’t look away
The only thing that matters is that we’re not afraid

Take a breath, take my hand and we’ll see where we landed
Hiding in your back seat where they caught us redhanded

All this anticipation has got me sh sh shaking
(Are you shaking babe?)

Counting all the reasons why I still can’t fall asleep tonight
You are up there with my college debt
I swear you make me so crazy
The girl at every show
She sings the words but she don’t know

Caught in gaze, I just can’t look away
The only thing that matters is that we’re not afraid

Take a breath, take my hand and we’ll see where we landed
Hiding in your back seat where they caught us redhanded

All this anticipation has got me sh sh shaking
(Are you shaking?)

Let’s find time to lose ourselves
In lies we’ve told and truths we’ve held
Let’s turn on all the lights and take a good hard look
At what we’re hiding
While the temperature was rising
And we prayed that this meant something

Caught in gaze, I just can’t look away
The only thing that matters is that we’re not afraid

Take a breath, take my hand and we’ll see where we landed
Hiding in your back seat where they caught us redhanded

All this anticipation has got me sh sh shaking
(Are you shaking?)

And I guess I never learned how to play this game the right way
Just let me stumble through these words I prepared in my head don’t tell me that I’m too late

And all this anticipations got me shaking
All this anticipations got me shaking
Are you shaking?
Track Name: Resolution
We saw summer fade to fall
But were tempted to forget it all
Another year older while we’ve grown no wiser
Let’s wake in time to catch the sunlight right before it retreats behind the treeline

Half the world is waiting for a chance to catch their breath
While you’re lying in your bed smoking all those cigarettes

And you’re wondering if your life will ever be worth it

Hey, hey it’s not my fault
We chose to waste away another year
We’re sickened by the thought
Hey, hey it’s not your fault
We want to make ammends but we’re so shaken by the cost

Half the world was sleeping while we laid awake in bed
We were thinking the resolutions that we made in our heads
How beautifully spoken but how easily broken
We kept them as tokens for proof of better days

Oh we got chills despite the heatwave that kept us in our homes
it felt just like new years day and I did not want to be alone
and it felt like being new, after years of being used
oh it felt like truth had just shown through

Hey, hey it’s not my fault
We chose to waste away another year
We’re sickened by the thought
Hey, hey it’s not your fault
We want to make ammends but we’re so shaken by the cost

It’s like we’ve been sleeping for years
Caught in a daze that has kept us here
It’s like we’ve been sleeping for years but we just woke up
(Happy New Year, Hallelujah)

It’s like we’ve been dead for years
Stunted by debilitating fears
It’s like we’ve dead years but we just woke up
(Happy New Year, Hallelujah)

We picked ourselves up off the floor
We found what we were looking for
We kicked the fucking door down and screamed
(Happy New New Year, Hallelujah!)

“It’s the first time in a long time, happy new year
It’s the first time I’ve seen sunlight, happy new year”
Track Name: DNA
Sometimes I think there must be more
Than the deafening silence that keeps knocking on my door
Sometimes I like to dream about a God
Where he may be, if he’s just some scared kid like me
If he’s too ashamed to sleep

Where are all the heroes?
We’ve gone and lost all control
Where are all the heroes?
We are watching this planet explode
From the silence and comfort of our homes

Sometimes I’m just too scared read the news
Another 20 dead soldiers protecting me from God knows who
Another hundred bombs dropped on a place that I don’t know
It’s okay, they deserved it or at least that’s what I’m told

Where are all the heroes?
We’ve gone and lost all control
Where are all the heroes?
We are watching this planet explode
From the silence and comfort of our homes

Sometimes I try to understand these bigger plans
But it makes me sick to think of it
Track Name: Sassy Song
“If seeing is believing then I’d like to be blind”
She said to me with a casual wink of an eye
The thought of seeing or just being left behind
Is too much of a weight for my weary eyes

Scouting out the streets, looking for a bit of decency
But I can’t find any
There are people walking by in their business suits and ties

And their lives are cold, and their hands are tied
But people blame the times
We’re looking for the answers before we die

“If seeing is believing then I’d like be blind”
She said to me with a casual wink of an eye
The thought of seeing or just being left behind
Is too much of a weight for my weary eyes

Ask the church for answers and you’ll get them
Ask the lab for answers and you’ll get them
Sit down pray or calculate, and you’ll find what you’re wanting to find
But you’ll never afford the truth if you bought all the lies

Have you seen some, could you spare some
Honesty

Do you need some, like I need some,
Honesty

Ignorance flows freely through your leaky faucet mouth
And you’re screaming “hallelujah” as if you’ve figured it all out
And it’s not black or white, it’s just shades of gray
It seems to boil down to today
That there is no right and no wrong
It’s just shades of gray
Track Name: Get Up, Get Up
V1: Breathing fast running faster
From the darkness chasing after you
Lost in the rearview
Watching roads crumble behind you
While ahead it splits itself in two
This dream is not new

Chorus: The nightmare came and went but the feelings still there
(We found you crying on the floor, an empty bottle you begged for more)
Five years came and went but we’re still not prepared
(The tears kept pouring down your face, the pain that you would not let time erase)

V2: Shaking hands holding onto a world that you once knew
But now you’re meerly passing through
You’re just a stranger here
A blur that once was clear
A shadow of a mountain that’s long since disappeared
And these sober days have swam away
And you’re praying to stay afloat while your mind drowns in a state of dissaray

Chorus: The nightmare came and went but the feelings still there
(We found you crying on the floor, an empty bottle you begged for more)
Five years came and went but we’re still not prepared
(The tears kept pouring down your face, the pain that you would not let time erase)

Bridge: Get up, get up, get up
You’ve had enough

Get up, get up, get up
You’ve had it rough

But don’t you dare give up on yourself
Not again, not this time

(Get up)

You told me you were scared I said “me too,” and I took your hand
I said that there were just some things that we’ll never understand
It’s the rain on a Sunday for the church with the water front view
It’s not guilt that defines us, it’s not God that keeps us true
It’s love
