Track Name: On The Shelf
rendered black and white
with her red lipstick still clear
she read me like a book
im on the shelf right here

you wanna see me lose
like I'm not enough for you
but you wanna see me through

in this game
you're throwing flags
at everything
that i lack

make me wait for you, i'll wait
hope the sun comes up again
shining on my face
and i said i'll wait, i'll wait

you wanna see me lose
like i'm not enough for you
but you wanna see me through
through-ough

and i thought, that if you found me
we would be A-OK
rain check, leave a message
my autobiography

it isn't fair
i'm an aching vessel
for a fleet of ships to clear
it isn't clear
why i'm still
stuck waiting here.

rendered black & white
with her red lipstick still clear
she read me like a book
rendered black & white
with her red lipstick still clear
im on the shelf right here

its a memory it always finds me
haunting me
always on my mind
its a memory i think ill keep it,
to remind me,
what im trying to forget
but i can't
Track Name: The Great Divide
she drives a brand new car, my baby
i dont know what she sees in me
i'm blind and tend to believe that its nothing,
it' s nothing. but i cant see.

The great divide
It covered my eyes
I'm predisposed to think
that i'm not worthy

not from the neighborhood
that i grew up in
shes from the brighter side of town

where it's all cul-de-sacs and no regrets
and i can pay for it
with a white picket fence, the richest friends
you'd only dream of it.

you understand
why it is we cant be friends
you understand
why it is we cant be

Sh-sh-she's g-g-got me
St-st-st-st-stutterin'
i c-c-c-can't stop it
b-b-but it's all in my head.
when you get to the bones of it
::(pause)::
just a regular skeleton
just a regular skeleton
(x2)

she drives a brand new car, my baby
i dont know what she sees in me
i'm blind and tend to believe that it's nothing
its nothing, ya its nothing.

the great divide
it covered my eyes
im predisposed to think that
im not worthy
the great divide
it covered my eyes
im predisposed to think that
im not worthy
Track Name: Proper Villains
i'm sloppy drunk again
on saturday night
i forge the river at 2 a.m.
we could race the sunlight
on our way back
to the town where no one knows our name

but we still break apart and crash just like the waves we are
she's into decoupage, extreme coupons, and sabotage

she stole my heart and left me for the dogs
she missed my call like it was never there at all
she stole my car and all my credit cards
she stole my heart it was never there

i'm on the edge again
of summer and i'm
half the man i was when i arrived

we made a promise let's be honest to ourselves for once
you see the problem is the honest one's the silent one as well

she stole my heart and left me for the dogs
she missed my call like it was never there at all
she stole my car and all my credit cards
she stole my heart it was never there.
Track Name: My DeLorean
i take my jealousy
to the top of the tallest building
and i shake it out
of my head back to the ground
i get my balance back
i needed it
i can finally see
what i want's not what i need

picture this:
she's a bombshell walking in
olive-skinned
and her smile finds me
i smile back
such a lady i'm the tramp
we get to talking
and her smile finds me

such a strange familiar
is this night rewinding?
and it's so peculiar
how these nights outfight me

i wanna slow down

where's my DeLorean?
i wish i could do it all again
where's my DeLorean?
if i could do it all again
i would do it all again
Track Name: Crash(ed)
i thought you would've crashed into me by now
id be in critical condition after it
but id just smile and say
"every minute was worth it"

they drag me out
of the wreckage through my house
down the fire escape
i'm finding ways to not replace you
so long, it's been so long
since ive seen denial
that sad look you grace
upon your face, it's been a while.

what i want from you
is what you took from me
broken confused
just pieces of me

you took me for a ride and i decided
i dont trust your driving, your controlling us colliding.

what i want from you
is what you took from me
broken confused
just pieces of me
when i get to you
try to stomach what you see
worn out like old shoes
I am poorly weathering.

what i want from you
is your attention, because nobody listens anymore
but what i get from you
youre faking affection, you've got my attention
but you need more
Track Name: Little Lobster
hey little lobster
i hear you're leaving this tank soon
i'll be wandering
missing holding claws with you
my lobster,
i wont be forgetting about you,
im never without you
i'll be wandering
missing holding claws with you

this isnt our last night
or our first time
around this sort of painful goodbye
this time
we tried to recognize
that things are bound to change
its a lifelong game
and i came to play
every quarter lasts a day
of all the things i've figured out
she's the constant i'm without.

hey little lobster,
i hear you're leaving this tank soon
i'll be wandering
Track Name: Two To Tango
sitting just upwind from me,
she's smoking a cigarette
i approach her, just to ask her,
"have we met?"
this isn't cacophony
no, this is as simple as it gets.
i'm picking the rhythm up
as she dances right in step

they're playing our song,
so we danced like confetti intertwined
at midnight.
we sparked like the fourth of july,
but the sparks were twice the size.

a split second decision
without hesitation
we don't make a sound
the music's way too loud

but they're playing our song
so we danced like confetti intertwined
at midnight.
we sparked like the fourth of july,
but the sparks were twice the size.

dance with me, dance with me
dance with me, dance with me
if only for tonight
Track Name: I Lost My Virginity at The Neverland Ranch
you gotta get me outta here
take me far away to a land where i'll never age
teach me how to fly
teach me how to fly away

this happy ending always comes too soon
admit the truth: you knew it, you knew it
theres always been something between me and you
admit the truth, i blew it, i blew it

dont you run away from me
make a clean getaway
no you cant stay away from here
no were too good too good for you to leave.

dont you run away
no you cant stay away from here
no were too good too good for you to leave.
Track Name: Losing It
I'm losing, i'm losing it
i'm losing my damn mind to this town
not to sound over confident
i'm always right about the wrong things

my only vice is that i
never take my own advice
so quick to throw my two cents around
everytime, yea both of them
my routine is getting old so fast
that's why my innocence will never last

without you to keep me young

i'm telling, i'm telling you
again what i think you should do
not to sound over confident
i'm always right about the wrong things.

my only vice is that i
never take my own advice
so quick to throw my two cents around
everytime, yea both of them
my routine is getting old so fast
that's why my innocence will never last

without you
without you
without you
to keep me

they say practice what you preach, or don't speak.
keep your mind at rest, your lies at ease.
Track Name: Capture The Flag
so make your move.
pick a trusty crew.
you be red, well,
i'll be....

willingly torn apart
red & blue flags.
our strategy: hide in forts,
stand and defend!
our weekly war between ourselves
divided evenly we spread
across the neighborhood
won't cross that line
in fear of getting caught.

things ive seen
right before my eyes
the capture of my team
in jars, like fireflies.

theres only one way now
to free them, get inside
undetected
invisible, out of sight.

if you tried to walk a mile in my shoes
you'd know why
my aching bones and broken soul
are dying, slowly, giving up the fight

im making my way down through the brush
im camouflaged, you're a mirage.
i can't believe it.
i slipped past the untrained guards
to the prisoners, i said, "i said i'd be here.
to free you from these jars,
so you can shine on."

willingly torn apart
red & blue flags
our strategy: hide in forts,
stand and defend!
our weekly war between ourselves
divided evenly we spread
across the neighborhood
won't cross that line, no

if you tried to walk a mile in my shoes
youd know why
my aching bones and broken soul
are dying, slowly, giving up the fight.
Track Name: The Cheese Stands Alone
there's something
about being
invincible
woah
it wears me out
if the sky fell down
i'd still be around
around

standing alone
im used to it, being used like this
standing alone
im used to it, im getting used to it.

im not, im not amused
at the thought of overlooking you
this time ill take it off your hands
ill hold the sky up if i can

im standing alone
im used to it, being used like this
standing alone
im used to it, im getting used to it

have the tables
turned around
from better into worse
things have changed
without a doubt
we said, yea we said
"for better or for worse"

and im just seeking a friend for the end of the world
im just seeking a friend
for the end of the world

turn tables turn
every night
night after night
awake to see the sunrise
no, life wont end
ill hold the sky up if i have to
if you take care of me.
Track Name: Hide & Seek
you're leaving clues so i can find you
in your hiding place behind the wall
spill your secrets while i seek for you
come out from where you are

you told me count to twenty-five
and that i better close my eyes
but i, i try
to catch a glimpse of you before
you run and hide
twenty-four...twenty-five....

thanks for making me believe
in what i have
in everyone around me everyday
mon cher, you know what they say

there's no easy way
to say this game is over
of hide & seek we play.
i recognize disaster.
only natural,
to play along this far.
but you and me
it's history,
and that explains why we both fell apart.

I'll be the first one to admit
ive made mistakes in my day
man in the mirrors begging me to make a change
hunting for redemption now
gotta make my city proud
gotta make my friends and family proud

thanks for making me believe
in what i have
in everyone around me everyday
you know what they say.

Theres no easy way, to say this game is over.
come out. come out where ever you are.
