Track Name: As The Crow Flies
heartbreak from miles away
i've hurt a woman
not just a child
and i'm the older that I've ever been
but I've never felt this young before
so would you show me the way to the door?

if it was simple to be a man
then I would man up to the fool in me
and i'm the bravest that i've ever been
but i've never been brave at all
so would you show me which way to fall
Track Name: Backwards
thinking upside down again
still counting on my same best friends
i chose to hold this weight instead
cause that train won't come if you pretend

i'm walking backwards just to find
some sort of truth behind the story lines
inside this twisting, turning rhyme scheme
is a man with all new kinds of time to breathe

he found a reckless hideaway
when she finds him there they spin away
outside the sun is burning cold again
heat up the winter and come back home again

cause this evenings paradise
sinks through my bones
rich from the waters
and now my need has grown

i'm thinking upside down again
still drinking with my same best friends
i chose to walk this way instead
cause that train won't come if you pretend
Track Name: Dying in Twos
i want to figure you out
i want to learn all your little habits
i want to feel you breathe
i want to give you the best of me

we can break every bone
we can run away from the sirens
if we're going down
at least we're going down in two

listen to me
i have no lion's heart
are you listening?
i'm not lying when i said i could die with you

i want to give you back
just to see how bad i'll miss you
then i will catch your breath
and i'll give you the rest of me

i want to watch you move
as you dance through speeding traffic
we can break every bone
we can run away from our past

i want to hold you through the madness
i want to whisper while you scream
i want to hold you through the madness
i want to whisper while you scream

listen to me
i've gotta head full of gasoline
listen to me
I leave the snakes to the slithering
are you listening?
i never said i had a lion's heart
listen to me
i'm not lying when i said i could die with you
Track Name: Until We're Bones
so late
to make the pledge
so i just wait
and play around
inside the place
where all my bones we're grown
lifting a household made of stone

i think
inside a waiting room
i hate
the smell of hospitals
but it takes
doctors to arrange a cure
lifting a dead man full of stone

her face
brings light and color
to the days
when i just can't contain the weight
she makes me feel at home
shocking a heart that's made of stone

awake
the streets alive again
it's time
to blend with the parade
this youth
we will sing side by side
and dance along until we're bones

you know
there's no control tonight
it's true
this will come back to you
just float
along the tides again
then fall to sand just like some stones

stand up
and scream your lungs away
it's time
to blend with the parade
this youth
we will sing side by side
and dance along until we're bones
Track Name: Waiting
you know that I've been waiting for this
you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life
you know that I've been waiting for this
you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life

lose the T-shirt
hit the TV
tell a white lie
that was easy
turn the lights off
well shoot
cause everyone looks better in their birthday suit

who's using who?
who's using me?
am I losing you?
should I leave it be?
turn the lights on
well shoot
cause everyone looks better in their birthday suit

you know that I've been waiting for this
you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life
you know that I've been waiting for this
you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life

you scratch my back
I'll scratch yours
you bite my lip off
I'll bite yours
turn the lights off
well shoot
cause everyone looks better in their birthday suit

you know that I've been waiting for this
you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life
you know that I've been waiting for this
you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life
Track Name: Fireworks
here comes the waterworks
drowning our goodbyes
both feet on the concrete
with my hands up her shirt

in my head i hear fireworks
replacing the tears
both eyes on the mountain
fit into an hourglass

it was raining
now it's pouring
but i'm not ready to go

concrete thoughts
fill your face for the day
as the race the clock
it's her you wish would stay

we're smiling steady
feeling happy for the day
while you race the suns drop
it's her you wish would stay

it was raining
now it's pouring
but i'm not ready to go
so bring on the weather man
bring on the thunder and lightning
we we're dancing in the rain
around two in the morning
and as you race the clock
it's her you wish would stay
it's her you wish would stay
it's her you wish would stay
it's her you wish would stay
Track Name: Fall In
do you know what you got yourself in?
what a way, what a way, what a way to fall in
there you were, there you went
when i opened my eyes
it's getting hard to move
and even harder to just stand still

on the other side of this cigarette
i'll be out of breath, i'll be out of breath
on the other side of this cigarette
i'll be out of breath, i'll be out of breath

should i drown in love?
or should i drown in wine?
either way, either way
i've got to slip a couple times
there it is, there it was
those bloodshot eyes
it's getting hard to stand
and even harder to just sit still

on the other side of this cigarette
there's a ripped up writer writing his worth
on the other side of this cigarette
there's a face in the crowd
making mama proud
on the other side of this cigarette
there's a reckless boy on a Friday night
on the other side of this cigarette
there's a silent girl she's looking for me
Track Name: Phil G.
I have every little thing that A man could want
but I don't want it
I have every little thing that A man could want
but I don't want it

tell me why
tell me why
tell me why
tell me why I've gotta get clean

I have a drug of choice
that I could follow till the end of the world
I have a drug of choice
that I could follow till the end of me

tell me why
tell me why
tell me why
tell me why I've gotta get clean

I swear there's nothing under my skin
but pills, pills, ashes, and whiskey
I swear there's nothing under my skin
but pills, pills, ashes, and whiskey

I kept my hope at the bottom of my pocket
like a penny I would never use
I kept my hope at the bottom of my pocket
like a penny I would never use

so god grant me the serenity
to accept the things that I can't change
god, give me all the courage
to change the things i know I can

please god would you give me the wisdom
to know the difference
please god would you give me the wisdom
to know the difference

I have some song and dance
that I could follow till the end of the world
I have some song and dance
that I could follow till the end of me

now I know
now I know
now I know
now I know why I will get clean
now I know
now I know
now I know
now I know why I will get clean
Track Name: It's True
i'm going outside
leaving inside
lock the door
and throw away the key
just you
and me
new views
outside

the moon has fallen
the sun is rising
burning all the rotten memories clean
it's true
that me
and you
will do

we'll do anything to feel alive forever
we'll do anything to feel the need to breathe
leave everything and let your mind just wander
then you might find a place you'd rather be

it's pushing boundaries
we find astounding
and only you and me know what comes next
we'll lay around
in bed
all day

if thinking through things
would lead to true things
we'd probably think this through
a whole lot more
we'll lose
this bond
in time
it's true

and even we knew
that this would end soon
but we just laughed it off
that's so like us
to avoid
all the stop signs
and anything in the way
you know
it's true

we'll do anything to feel this way forever
we'll do anything to keep this need to breathe
leave everything and let your mind just wander
then you might find a place you'd rather be
