Track Name: I Wanna
I wanna turn off the TV
I wanna turn up the radio
I wanna see us years from now
I wanna be OK with it

I wanna see every city
Every speck of a city
And take all of you with me
nothings too bad with company

I know each time we grow
but it feels like we're getting younger

I wanna turn all the lights on
I wanna make a record of
Every little sound we make
All our fights to illuminate

I wanna SMASH your TV
I want the songs on the radio
To reflect how we really live and think
To be golden and timeless

You can make it
If you wanna
You can break it
If you wanna
You can build it
If you wanna
You can kill it
If you wanna
Track Name: Make Your Bed
If you wanna tear this apart
Please don't hesitate
Go right for the heart

If you wanna fix this all up
Let's spread some glue
Get your mind set up

Just take your time
Shouldn't mean you take your whole life
You took your time

But you never made up your mind
We're wasting borrowed time
and this has got to stop

You could go anywhere that you've read
But you're running late
And your car's parked on our legs

If you wanna fix this all up
Let's make a plan
Make your bed
Make it now before we DRY UP

If you wanna tear this all up
Please don't hesitate
go right for the heart
cause it's buried
buried
buried
buried
buried
UNTIL you wake it up
Track Name: Stupid for Now
It's OK
We're just stupid
For a little while
Then we're done
The next ones
Will come along and say
Talking
Doesn't always help much
But sometimes we should just
Shut up

But like you I can't just shut up

We make
Mistakes
But right or wrong we're just echoing
just echoing traits

Most of us will follow through
Cause' most of us aren't scared
But most of us won't show up early
Cause' most of us
Most of us don't care

Now
We're repeating ourselves
to no one else

It's
Never too late
To know you're not right
All the time let's change our minds
We can be alright
It's
Never easy
To see where we fail
Straighten up your spine
Rip open your eyes
We can be alright
Track Name: His Last Sound
Goodbye to you
You heard me right
These things I've said
Didn't really matter
Here's to my last sound

For
Stories that will soon be dead
We'll hear you once you're gone

I'm far away
But did it ever bother you
Now I'm going forward
Here's to my last sound

Soon you'll
Always
Be gone

Let's make this all bad
Not bad
Un-dead all your words
I can make this all bad
Not bad
If I knew what I know now

I wish I knew what I know now
Track Name: Let's Not
Let's start and not repeat
Straight line un-tie
Our tangled feet
Are you OK if you don't take action
Action took you with it

Let's stop running from this guise
Let's be social eye to eye
We're so much better than we
Pretend to be

Mistakes
Let's not be on
Repeat
On repeat

I don't mind
Cleaning up your mess again
I don't mind
As long as you laugh at mine
I don't mind
Being the last one listening
I don't mind
Face to face and awkwardly trying

I mind if we waive our fingers
Let's never do that again
Let's drop the act
Let's bring us back
Let's never do that again
Track Name: There are no Good Goodbyes
open the door
Be how you want
Act like you're never coming
back
Making pretend goodbyes to
friends
On a mountain that's now a
spec

Open the door to your motel
act how you want you're
going back
Every goodbye all in your head
your never could stay

You don't want to go back
home
You don't want to go back
home
You don't want to go back
home
You don't want to go back
home
Cuz it's what you've become
Where you began
What you'd begun
What you became
Track Name: If Miles Were Years
It's a little late now
You can't sleep while I drive
When the dawn breaks we'll wake
We've made
It out alive

I don't think we're that far
From where this all started
We're a long way
From everything we know
And I hate to say
Like my next best guess, I know you

Can't believe you came here
It's clear
This could be wrong
We're a long way from home
I know

We're a long way
From everything we know
And I hate to say
Like my next best guess, I know you

We're a long way
Hold me like the shadows
Line your face
And the anchor to your eyes
Is going down
Look around
Side by side, we collide
In wonderful wreckage

Can't believe you came here
It's clear that this could be wrong
If miles were years I wouldn't fear
But we weren't at this too long
Track Name: Down Together
We may never be as happy
As we think we are right now
At least we know that right now
We can be ourselves

And what if all our best times
Have already come to pass
And all the time before us
Is much greater than what's next

As we slowly fade away
And as we slowly
Are forgotten

We may never be as happy
As we know we are right now
At least from now on we go
Down together

We all free fall together
Hope you're OK with what comes next
Of all off our memories
Whether they live or die
We need to be OK with them
And all we've got left

Hey
You
Why'd you waste it
Sitting on top of this
Pile together

Together we're fine
We're watching time
dismantle us
We're watching time
dismantle us

Together we're fine
Track Name: This is a Drag
No one sees me
I keep coming back
To this
Same place
I pay
they have me
Last stop before I
Sleep

This is a drag

They're gone
Now that I'm here
No one left for me to
Wait for
Dirt under my nails
It's not from working anymore

This is a drag
