Track Name: Bleed Out
Don’t bleed out
We come from nothing no there’s nothing to worry about
Don’t bleed out
We come from nothing no there’s nothing to worry about

Don’t bleed out
I’ll get you what you need there’s nothing to worry about
Don’t bleed out
I’ll get you what you need there’s nothing to worry about

You can’t come, you can’t come
It’s something less than normal
You’ve got to reap what you sow

Oh, oh no
There’s something happening I know that we have to go
Oh, oh no
There’s something happening I know that we have to go
Track Name: Sounds of Summer
Let’s go for a walk
Let us roll around in fields and watch the planes take off
Let’s just sing a song
I would watch you breathe in deep as you attempt to sing along

I would take back all those empty words in poems
I would write all those letters to send you when I’m gone

Let’s just have a drink
We can laugh and sing and you can tell me what you think of me
We can talk about our dreams
About the time that you woke up and swore that you were in bed with me

And how you cried so hard until you hardly see
For a second you felt like you know what happiness could mean

What happiness could mean

Let’s go for a walk
Let us go down by the creek and throw some rocks down by the dock
Let’s just stroll along
I would take you to your parents house to show them the earrings that I bought

Yeah God knows I stole them and he don’t think I’m wrong
Yeah God knows I stole them and he don’t think I’m wrong

He don’t think I’m wrong
Track Name: Waiting For The Sunlight
And you know I’ll be waiting for the sunlight
To come through these blinds, to come through these blinds
I’ll try, to carry on, to carry on and on
And you know I’ll be waiting til the time’s right
To help me decide, to help me decide if I
can still hold on, can still hold on and on

Where you been
Where you goin with
All these days
I’ve been throwing
“Away with you! Away with him!”
The Queen she said, she said she meant it

We fall asleep
We fear to dream
Can’t you just see
What you’ve done to me

And you know I’ll be waiting for the sunlight
To come through these blinds, to come through these blinds
I’ll try, to carry on, to carry on and on
And you know I’ll be waiting til the time’s right
To help me decide, to help me decide if I
can still hold on, can still hold on and on

Let me, introduce myself
Mister mister cracked heart fixer
I’ve only been on the job a week
but my books booked don’t count on seeing me

Damned from the start
All pride no heart
It’s so damn hard
When you’re holding all the cards
Track Name: The Alibi
Wait for me, call the cars, grab the bags, get the guns
Yeah it’s only a matter of time, in a moment we will be fine
Make this left, make it quick quick c-come one he’s bleeding pretty bad
Yeah I’ll use my shirt to dress his wound I need an alibi they’ll be asking soon

I am gone, so so long
Tell my friends that they were wrong about me
Gone, so so long
tell my friends that they were wrong about me

And thank god, we wore gloves
and turned off the cameras
Little girl, please don’t cry
In a moment we will be fine
Hide it all, hide it fast
At this rate we will not last
One more day, till escape
I’ll see white beaches or pearly gates

I am gone, so so long
Tell my friends that they were wrong about me
Gone, so so long
tell my friends that they were wrong about me

See guys like me, we don’t last too long
It was all going right before it all went wrong
A push on a trigger to let loose a scare
and who would have thought that a hero’d be there
to spoil our plot to get rich real quick
I can’t believe he got the best of Nick
Now I’m out on the lamb and Im praying for grace
A plane ride to paradise to win this race
Track Name: The Politician
When giving up is giving in
The battles long the lines are thin
My voice is hoarse, the troops are worn
of course of course of course

The angry bird it circles close
the bombs they shake and break and blow
a wind it nears a striking tune a humbling sound
that will shake the moon

We can be anything X4

A day parade creates wake
among the bums and defecates
upon us all to celebrate
for nothing much at all

So show me yours I’ll show you mine
we’ll fall apart we’ll both unwind
we’ll fool the politician
and watch him as he falls

We can be anything X4

This king is dead, long live the king
Track Name: March On
ill admit my lifes been under read
from all those things i did
to scare you away

we run around like kids who lost their heads
I'd like to think that's it
can we blame the news

can you find yourself
inside someone else
can find yourself
no you can't no you can't
so march on

falling leaves
they map our own defeat
my past it sings to me
things we thought we knew

road markers
they act as passing cars
they tell us who we are
things we thought we'd prove

can you find yourself
inside someone else
can find yourself
no you can't no you can't
so march on
Track Name: Keep Breathing
It’s not what I thought it would be
I’m finding it hard to believe
can you come back me?

I’ve taken my ups and downs
I’ve ran the race and I’ve fallen down
I’m so tired of this damn town

And I will stand
ANd I will fight
On my own

Listen love it was never that simple
I told them all that you never seemed evil
Maybe I’m just blind
Maybe we have known this for some time

I’ve been, calling you for hours
They say you’ve ben holding all the power
Maybe I’m just blind
Maybe we have known this all along

And I will stand
ANd I will fight
On my own

I remember those nights when you whispered to me
That you were so much in love
and how I made you stop breathing, believe me
I’m leaving I’m leaving

I will stand and fight
I will stand and fight
I will stand and fight
My way home

I remember those nights when you whispered to me
That you were so much in love
and how I made you stop breathing, believe me
I’m leaving I’m leaving

And if my morals seem distorted
Best believe it cause I planned it
And if my views are not supported
And this ship sinks I still will man it
And if my voice, lacks it’s thrust
and it seems that it’s been damages
well I swear there’ll be a Phoenix coming
rising form the ashes
Track Name: Philadelphia
Oh Philadephia, damn near known you all my life
And form what the papers say, seems like someone’s bound to die
I miss the summer and the heat it likes to bring
And the life that you gave me, well I tied it to a string

When you’re gone
And I’m not
We fall
Like a house of cards
When you’re here
There’s nowhere left to start
And my memories of you
they fade into the dark

And if I see an angel perhaps he’s just passing by
let him know that I’m okay and that my life turned out alright
because I got a lady and my friends have all got clean
And this world still hasn’t got, the better part of me

When you’re gone
And I’m not
We fall
Like a house of cards
When you’re here
There’s nowhere left to start
And my memories of you
they fade into the dark
Track Name: Ambulances Ambulances
Put that face away
for I know not what I’m doing
This is our last chance at redemption
This is our shot at number one
All those games you’ve played
When saying is not proving
Are you paying close attention
You’re staring at a loaded gun

It’s like we’re sifting through sand X 8

Put that face away
for I know not what I’m doing
This is our last chance at redemption
This is our shot at number one
All those games you’ve played
When saying is not proving
Are you paying close attention
You’re staring at a loaded gun

It’s like we’re sifting through sand

Could please take your hands, from around my neck
and at least turn me around, choke me out from the back
I am a soldier of doubt, fighting a war that love left
And now it’s me all alone, a gunshot wound in the leg

Star Eyed, striped blue and black
my headband under my hat
I am a soldier of doubt
Fighting a war that love left
That love left

I’m not in denial
I’ve just been denied
My life’s a burning candle
But there’s no wick inside
So sweet I’m bitter yes it’s
something I know too well
I’ll test God and his waters
I’d watch those rivers swell...
