Track Name: Midnight In London
Lyrics:

Could you be alone tonight under the tavern light?
Show me what keeps you in your skin made of porcelain.
Lipstick is your last mistake, because not a mile from here
I got some plans for this knife, and your blood’s all over it.

This feeling’s so incredible
To watch you know you’re never going home.
You never looked so miserable
While leaving your life to me.

As far as I’m concerned, you know what you deserve.
I see through those made up eyes,
You’d sell your soul to disguise those sins,
You can’t repent, you’re not so innocent.
I’ll do this slow so it burns, I don’t think you understand.

This feeling’s so incredible
To watch you know you’re never going home.
You never looked so miserable
While leaving your life to me.

Slow kill to relieve the poison. Fast ride to reduce the pain.
Slow down, spill your guts I won’t tell. Show it all to me.

In the black of the night and my mind
It will stick to the skin like a mystery.
Thick is the blood and the thought of your suffering,
Pencils a picture so clear in my memory,
Even as daylight turns into night,
I see that for me this thing feels right.
Think of the lives of the wives who meant something,
I think they’ll agree I will not be blamed for nothing.

This feeling’s so incredible
To watch you know you’re never going home.
You never looked so miserable
We’re all liars in love.
Track Name: The King Is Dead
Lyrics:

We advertise the fiction, it keeps us honest, makes us want it.
We salivate for nothing, and carry onward.
Open your eyes to see that this is over.
Oh, God, I wish that I could keep it honest, and take it all back.

In the middle of a cold street begging for change,
I help myself with every little thing that they couldn’t take.
We wait in silence, acting selfish like there’s no one to blame
Instead of running we embrace it and forget just the same.

Carry on like we were soldiers. The war has just begun.
We hold our hands to the fire to feel what we had lost.
What are we waiting for?

I’m running away from mistakes that I have made.
Is this what we’ve waited for? The funeral for everyone.
I say I love you still, but the only thing I know,
Is if we make it out alive…

In the center of the old man, there’s a disease,
It gets inside and over time it eats away at the seams.
Like a sickness we’re infected with the price we won’t pay,
We turn our back to make it look like we don’t understand.

Carry on like we were soldiers, to find that we were wrong.
We sell our souls for the answer to find what we had lost.
What are we waiting for?

I’m running away from mistakes that I have made.
Is this what we’ve waited for? The funeral for everyone.
I say I love you still, but the only thing I know,
Is if we make it out alive…

What are you running away from? We’ve really done it this time.
If I decide to stay…

I’m running away from the mess we all have made.
This is what we say instead, ‘the king is dead, the king is dead!’
I say I love you still, but the only thing I know,
Is if we make it out alive…
Track Name: The Getaway
Lyrics:

Hey, there’s a man in the woods taking polaroids.
He looks shift, come with me, just stay the night, if you’re still alive.
I don’t want to be the one to tell you but he’s found out where you’re going
So stay alive, run fast tonight.
Hey if you want to believe I can run through the trees, I’ll meet you there.
Stay safe my little one.

Hey, there’s a broken voice on the radio screaming ‘baby, come save me.’
Is it in my mind? Or am I running out of time?

Get up, get down. Believe it or not.
I’ve got the best defense for this.
I got a solid gold plan, God damn, if you want to stay,
Say what you want to say, this is the getaway.

Hey, chalk outline of a centerfold, call it quits tonight.
This ends tonight.
It’s crazy so come with me tonight. Sleep sound little one.

Get up, get down. Believe it or not.
I’ve got the best defense for this.
If we live to fight for just one other day,
They can say what they want to say, this is the getaway.
Save me, I guess I got to go, this is not the place for me.
I got a solid gold plan, God damn, if you want to stay,
Say what you want to say, this is the getaway.

Did you ever mean anything you ever told me?
Did you ever say the things that you want to say?
Did you ever mean anything that you ever said?

Get up, get down. Believe it or not.
I’ve got the best defense for this.
Baby if you save me, I guess I got to go, this is not the place for me.
Get up, get down. I’ve got the best defense for this.
If you save me, then say what you want to say, this is the getaway.
Track Name: Falling To Pieces
Lyrics:

I had a chance to make amends, She blew me off.
I felt so low. If I only could turn back time I know together we'd grow old.
I said to her 'just one more try... I'll try a promise and make it right.'
She let my heart land oh so low. She heard those words too many times.
But that's the way it's got to be.

Oh, can you hear me?
Is there something I can say to you?
Just tell me what I gotta do. Or leave it alone.
Can't you see I'm falling to pieces.

Well I admit I made mistakes. She said that's fine.
Yeah that's ok.
I should have known from her distant eyes that she was breaking down inside.
But wait, I can feel it she can see right through me.
There's a million different reasons she should keep on moving.
Honestly there's got to be a better resolution.
Before you go I just want you to know that I didn't mean to let you down.
Breathe in and let go.
Take the whole world and make it yours if that's the way it's got to be.
Track Name: Dare You To Dance
Lyrics:

Just stay long enough to embrace what’s held up inside you.
A pretty little thing like yourself looking so lost on the dance floor.
But I know I’ve seen you here before.

I know I can play the game for sure,
We both can see this is just a game,
And turn it off, or maybe not.
If your friends don’t mind, I don’t mind.

I dare you to dance with me.
I want you to move like I do.
I’m dying to know what you got under that dress tonight.
I dare you to dance.

Well you got all the right curves and you know it.
You think you got me wrapped around your sweet little finger
But you’re wrong, you’re so wrong.
And I just might break your spell tonight.

I know you got all the boys at school,
I’m not that type, ‘til you show me how
You’re making love, let’s take it off, there’s no one else around.

I dare you to dance with me,
I want you to move like I do.
I’m dying to know what you got under that dress tonight.
I dare you to dance for me,
Make me forget why we came here.
Show me some skin, baby, what you been hiding tonight?

I’ve been here long enough, I’ve been here way too long
To let you take advantage of one more.

Just stay long enough to embrace what’s held up inside you.
A pretty little thing like yourself looking so lost on the dance floor.

I dare you to dance with me,
I want you to move like I do.
I’m dying to know what you got under that dress tonight.
Show me some skin, baby, what you been hiding tonight?
I dare you to dance for me,
Make me forget why we came here.
Show me some skin, baby, what you been hiding tonight?
I’m dying to know what you’ve got under that dress.

I’ve got some big plans if you want to dance baby tonight.
Track Name: The Last Time
Lyrics:

Well we never had no money, but we found a way to get out.
I found this beat up guitar, it’s not the best, but girl, for you I’ll play it loud
If you smile for me.
Ain’t got the fast cars, best clothes, and credit cards, but I got you now.
That’s all that I need. Hope you know, when you go, I need you around.

Did you believe when you heard me say
That this is the last time and we’ll be okay?
We’ve seen it all, this is our night.

And if we close our eyes at the same time
We see the world begins to move so slow,
Until the sun comes, everything’s going to be alright.

Kiss you every morning while you’re still asleep…another day.
I drove passed the old apartment, the one that we had when were young,
At the time it was everything.
The hot spot right on the best block, where we could settle down.
Hope you know, when I go, I’m thinking about you.

Did you believe when you heard me say
That this is the last time and we’ll be okay?
We’ve seen it all, this is our night.

And if we close our eyes at the same time
We see the world begins to move so slow.
You bring your whiskey bottle, I’ll bring my broken wings.
Until the morning, everything’s going to be alright.

Well I never had no money to buy you things
Front row tickets or diamond rings.
That never meant much to us anyway,
As long as there’s love they can take it all away.

And when we close our eyes at the same time
We see that everybody moves so slow.
I got this whiskey bottle, and you got your broken dreams.
We see that everybody moves, everybody moves.
And if we close our eyes at the same time.
Well we’ve got everything if just for one night.
Track Name: I Am
Lyrics:

From the past it comes to haunt you
Like the planes I failed to catch that would bring me home to you,
That would settle all your doubts.
I’m sure it’s not the first time I’ve broken all your trust,
But you won’t survive this frame of mind as long as I’m around.

Everybody knows all the things you left behind,
All the dreams you left so broken,
All the songs you failed to write…I know.

A part of me takes over you
When you feel to weak to stand
Against the beating of your lonely heart
I’ll be strongest man.
I am.

When the pain begins to linger and it’s all too much to bear
I’ll keep you warm and hold you in,
We’ll dance like no one’s there.

A part of me takes over you
When you feel too weak to stand
Against the beating of your lonely heart
I’ll be the strongest man.
I am.
Track Name: Chemical
Lyrics:

Stop the addiction, loss of permission
You’re feeling something more than waves of emotion, loss and devotion.
I’m not there.
The bleeding hearts, the intimidating words, the feels pass us by.
And silently speaking, lips never moving,
You’re not there.

You’ve got my attention, cause of deception.
The steps to where we stand.
Feeding the victims, words never let them.
I don’t care.

You stare straight from the chemical.
Please girl or this will get physical.
Don’t make the same mistake you did.

So optimistic, “un-altruistic”, held by bleeding hands.
The words of our fathers give the lessons never learned.
Sugarcoated love is the sweetest to take,
And beautiful girls make the biggest mistakes.

You stare straight from the chemical.
Please girl or this will get physical.
Don’t make the same mistake as him.
Don’t tell your friends of the mess you’re in,
One voice you know you can believe in.
Don’t make the same mistake you did.

Put your guns away, push your god away,
Without the soul this is over and over. It’s all over.
Track Name: Romeo
Lyrics:

How many times have I said I’m sorry,
Somebody needs to let you know
I would go anywhere to find you, anywhere, just let me know.
I’m on my way to California, although they said ‘it isn’t for you.’
I am the face you hide underneath, I am Romeo in blue jeans.

How many times for you to figure out
What this life is all about, and I take the time to meet you here.
What do you want to know?

Could you stay up, up all night?
Could you believe in me, won’t you believe in me?
Could you stay up, up all night?
You and me taking our time to take our time.

Walls get built around us. Can’t believe your parents haven’t found us.
I drove all day just find your address, can we roll across the mattress?
I am the one you swore you’d never leave,
Your fingers crossed right next to me
I swear I wonder what this means, if you and I could ever be..

How many times will it take to find you,
I wish I was the one that inspired you.
If you dream of ways to throw this all away…

Could you stay up, up all night?
Could you believe in me, won’t you believe in me?
Could you stay up, up all night?
You and me taking our time to take our time.

Is anybody out there screaming ‘don’t close your eyes.’
If you’re ever sleeping..

Could you stay up, up all night?
Won’t you believe in me?

How many times will it take to find you,
I wish I was the one that inspired you.
If you dream of ways to throw this all away…

Could you stay up, up all night?
Won’t you believe in me, won’t you believe in me?
Could you stay up, up all night?
You and me taking our time to take our time.
I dreamed a thousand times for you.
Woke up and you were gone.
This night will never end and I’ll still be waiting up all night.
Track Name: Code Red
Lyrics:

So lay down upon this hospital bed,
I'll stay with you here.
My hands can't stop the bleeding now, the wounds are too severe.
But they did what they could for the moment.
You left us here with no words.

'Code red' is what we heard in the room.
'Where's my little boy?'
Your hands went cold, the air left your lungs -
too young to say goodbye.
Then you died in the cold of November.
We'll always remember.

Meet me where the willow's at
when the sun goes down and our shadows talk back.
Don't you ever talk back - good boys don't talk back now.

Save me tonight from all the ash and debris and get me out of this.
It happened too fast - a turn, and a crash.
It's just too late for me.
Though you tried you just couldn't protect me.
Don't ever forget me.

Meet me where the willow's at
when the sun goes down and our shadows talk back.
Don't you ever talk back - good boys don't talk back now.

Meet me with the other kids
thinking about what our fathers and mothers did.
We can never go back - I can never go back.
Never going back...

On your lips - the bad gin and old cigarettes.
Nowhere to go, we never paid no mind to it.
They told us 'no', but we're never going to listen.
I hope your listening.

Meet me with the other kids thinking about this world.
Track Name: Do It Again
Lyrics:

Slow down and take it all in.
It's a simple situation - you got dragged right in.
But it's too big now, you just can't get out.

Yes, sir, they've done this before -
sold you down the river because they don't agree with what she said.
I give up. I'm giving in.

Just can't get out.

I'm thinking about you now and how I wish I could save you.
I give all I have and you do it again right now.
So quit fooling around.

Last chance, we'll take it for a spin.
Nothing is forever but the hole we've all been sinking in.
Self destruct, I give up.

Let's go, we've done this before.
I've made my own decision, and I think I'm going to head for the door.

Wake up. Make up. Whoever thought that it would be like this?
Baby, say what you want, because I'm never coming home again.

Let's go, we've done this before.
I've made my own decision, and I think I'm going to wake up.

I've had enough and I can't take this lightly anymore.
Maybe I'm alone, or maybe I know I'm alive.
Track Name: Hope That You Know
Lyrics:

His smile lights up a room, but how would you know?
He plays all Sunday afternoon.
Baby boy don't understand the rules.
It's work and no play - that's all in the day,
but how would you know?

Never really thought the fallout would be so
sinking forever - swim or get swallowed.
There's holes in this nightmare but you're standing right there.
Wish you would know him. I want you to know him.
I don't understand - where did you go?
I hope that you know.

I never thought that you would want to miss out
on the sweetest sensation of holding your grandson.
Do you remember what we talked about in growing up?
Me and you. Mother and son. Mother why?

Why don't you know me? Why won't you know me? Why don't you know?
I hope that you know.
