"The Ghosts Of Me And You"

"The Ghosts Of Me And You"


I've been down
wandering past 2nd street
and looking at the ghosts
of you and me and thinking back on
all those memories of how we used to be

I've been hearing
hear those voices
of the noises of the breaking glass
and all those plans we had to get us through
they're never coming true

And I hope and hope
that you won't forget
and I hope you, hope you know
that I can clearly see

The ghosts of you and me
'cause I'm just a long-gone memory
and you're still alive
and I'm still getting by
on these dead end streets
the ghosts of you and me

I'm still talking
talk of what we'll do
to the ghosts of me and you
and I'm still looking back into the past
when we were all we had

And I hope and hope
that you won't forget
and I hope you, hope you know
that I can clearly see

[Chorus]
the ghosts of you and me [x2]

Hope you won't forget
hope you know that I'll always regret
those things I said
hope you know that I can clearly see

[Chorus]
the ghosts of you and me [x3]

Yeah

"The Life Of The Party Has Left The Building"

"The Life Of The Party Has Left The Building"



The cycle circles, stalls, then spins.
Describes the current state I'm in.
It's like a nose dive then a crash,
With all my blackouts and scraped hands.
It's in the words caught in my throat.
It's in the how did I get home?
I'd like to sleep my life away.
But I'd just wake up years too late.

"The Loudest Songs"

"The Loudest Songs"


Misguided
And misaligned
Old habits I've been leaning on in my lifetime
So before though they cut the ties
They left me

I told stories
A steady stream of songs
About summer, my surrender, and where I belong
Best friends that have come and gone
They left me

Do you really think summer can save us?
Do you think the loudest songs can be the cure?
I believe it's possible that words and chords can make us strong
And make you feel alive, the loudest songs

One-sided
Mistakes of mine
Only worries I've needed my whole lifetime
Lesson learned or passing by
They left me

I told stories
A steady stream of songs
About summer, my surrender, and where I belong
Best friends that have come and gone
They left me

Do you really think summer can save us?
Do you think the loudest songs can be the cure?
I believe it's possible that words and chords can make us strong
And make you feel alive, the loudest songs

Don't take your chances
Bring it alright [?]
Don't take your chances

Do you really think summer can save us?
Do you think the loudest songs can be the cure?
I believe it's possible that words and chords can make us strong
And realize that you belong
And make you feel alive, the loudest songs
The loudest songs
The loudest songs

"The Rest Of My Life"

"The Rest Of My Life"



I fell asleep last Saturday
Underneath polluted skies
I walked alone on those Jersey nights, and I
Saw the boardwalk start to fall
The emptiness starts to drown
The quiet corners of this town, and I...
Late last night, I made my plans
It was the only thing I felt I could do
Said goodbye, to my best friend
Sometimes there's no one left to tell you the truth

It's gonna kill me... The rest of my life
Let me apologize while I'm still alive
I know it's time to face all of my past mistakes
It's gonna kill me for the rest of my life

This is my all time low
Somehow it feels so familiar
Somehow it seems so familiar
I feel like letting go
And every second that goes by
I'm screaming out for a second try
Said goodbye, to my best friend
Sometimes there's no one left to tell me the truth

It's gonna kill me... The rest of my life
Let me apologize while I'm still alive
I know it's time to face all of my past mistakes
I've got to live with them rest of my life

This is the mess I've made
These are the words I can't erase
This is my life support, shutting down, for the final time
And it twists like a blade
And kills me for the rest of my life

If you won't forgive me
The rest of my life
Let me apologize while I'm still alive
I know it's time to face all of my past mistakes
It's gonna kill me for the rest of my life...

"The Science of Selling Yourself Short"

"The Science of Selling Yourself Short"


I've come to my senses,
That I've become senseless,
I could give you lessons on how to ruin your friendships,
Every last conviction, I smoked them all away,
I drank my frustrations down the drain, out of the way,
So I sit and wait and wonder,
"Does anyone else feel like me?"
Someone so tired of their routines and disappearing self-esteems,

[Chorus:]
I'll sing along,
Yeah with every emergency,
Just sing along,
I'm the king of catastrophies,
I'm so far gone,
That deep down inside I think it's fine by me,
I'm my own worst enemy

I could be an expert on co-dependency,
I could write the best book on underage tragedy,
I've been spending my time at the local liquor store,
I've been sleeping nightly on my best friends kitchen floor,
So I sit and wait and wonder,
"Does anyone else feel like me?"
I'm so over-dosed on apathy and burnt out on sympathy.

[Chorus]

Let the meaning slip away
Lost my faith in another day,
Self deprication seems okay,
I never thought I'd make it anyway

[Chorus]

I'm my own worst enemy [x5]

"The Space They Can't Touch"

"The Space They Can't Touch"



So you're feeling like you're just a waste of space now.
And you keep feeling like you're always out of place.
Don't you think it's strange you always feel the same now?
So you're feeling like you're just a waste of space now.
And you keep feeling like you're always out of place.
Don't you think it's strange you always feel the same now?
Who measure the desperate measures,
When it gets too much remember.

There is a space, they just can't touch.
And this pressures on to be good enough.
It's all the words,
That add weight trying to drag you down.

So you're feeling like you're just a powder keg now?
And you keep feeling like you've been a cast away.
Don't you think it's strange that it won't go away now.
So you think you're feeling like you can't be saved now?
And you keep feeling like everyone's taking aim,
Do you feel you're pushed and pulled and forced to change now?
Who measure the desperate measures,
When it gets too much remember.

There is a space, they just can't touch.
And this pressures on to be good enough.
It's all the words,
That add weight trying to drag you down.

So remember you're still bulletproof,
Remember the face stares back at you.
No matter what they say,
No matter what they do.
It can't be taken away from you.
It can't be taken away and that's the truth.

So you're feeling like you're just a waste of space now?
And you keep feeling like everyone's taking aim.
Don't you think it's strange you always feel the same now?
Who measure the desperate measures,
When it gets too much remember.

There is a space, they just can't touch.
And this pressures on to be good enough.
It's all the words,
That add weight trying to drag you down.

It's all the words,
That add weight trying to drag you down.

It's all just words that add weight,
Trying to drag you down.

"The State Of Florida"

"The State Of Florida"



He says florida is slowly sinking, sinking into the ocean
He says the housing tracts are built on half facts and the rest half fiction
And i cant argue that statistics are becoming the definition of just standing
Still between glass and steel
Drowning in this quicksand

And the cities skyline hasnt looked the same,
Since the boom in south florida's real estate
Its turning into more than i can take.
Too much, too soon, too little, too late.

Between the garbage and the concrete, to the construction grounds under our feet.
A boomtown gone bust, a goldmine to dust thats disintegrating
Where latch key kids from divorces, transplants and the foreign tourists fill up vacation
Spots turned to trailer parks cause this state is fading.

And the cities skyline hasnt looked the same,
Since the boom in south florida's real estate
Its turning into more than i can take.
Too much, too soon, too little, too late.

And the cities skyline hasnt looked the same,
Since the boom in south florida's real estate
Its turning into more than i can take.
Too much, too soon, too little, too late.

"The Troubles"

"The Troubles"



You know I peaked but I'm not sure when
I've been chasing peace of mind that's already left
All this progress is a waste of time that came and went
And we were always happy 'cause we don't make any sense
And we were always happy 'cause we don't make any sense

I've been going between bolting streams
And maybe it's just me, but that seems so naive

I live through these catastrophes
Even though they get the best of me
I'll just take all the highs and lows
'Cause it's the only thing I'll ever know

You know I peaked but I can't say when
It's been years and I've been cursing underneath my breath
And this process is the shallow side of stuck in the deep end
And we were always happy when it's broke and not just bent
And we were always happy when it's broke and not just bent

I've been going between bolting streams
And maybe it's just me, but that seems so naive

I live through these catastrophes
Even though they get the best of me
I'll just take all the highs and lows
'Cause it's the only thing I'll ever know
'Cause it's the only thing I'll ever know

I've been slipping between bolting streams
And maybe it's just me, but that seems so naive

I live through these catastrophes
And the troubles get the best of me

"The Upwards War and Down Turned Cycle"

"The Upwards War and Down Turned Cycle"



All my friends always talk about
The stories of moving on and getting out
Then packing up and heading south
Their heads full of hopes and dreams
They’re just like me

My friends aren’t going anywhere
My friends all act so unaware
Now that they have to face
Their best plans have all gone up in flames

They’re just looking for something to take
To break up the day to day and all its
Loneliness, vacant space
The tragedy of minimum wage

All my friends always talk about
The stories of moving on and getting out
Then packing up and heading south
Their heads full of hopes and dreams
They’re just like me

My friends are worried about last calls
And working jobs at shopping malls
Because they’re in between
A mixed up pride and apathy
So tonight they’ll talk of call in
Calling in with bitter grins
Laughing at the state they’re in
What a mess, I’m just like them

All my friends always talk about
The stories of moving on and getting out
Then packing up and heading south
Their heads full of hopes and dreams
They’re just like me

So they’re sleep walking their way through life
Sitting there and getting by
Like all the other friends of mine
Wishing for something more
Wishing for something more

All my friends always talk about
The stories of moving on and getting out
Then packing up and heading south
Their heads full of hopes and dreams
They’re just like me

"Theme Song For H Street"

"Theme Song For H Street"



You know my best friend,
just left yesterday, and I know.
I know your girlfriend,
wasn't here to stay,
she just moved away.

Things are so the same.
And all I really care,
bring myself to say is that I know.
That I know, that I know.
And remember when they said,
just how long can your ideas
keep you warm, and
We just laughed that kind of nervous laugh.
We just sang along to that song that's on the radio.
To that song on the radio.

And, yea, just outside,
the conversation's getting old.
I know they're right,
Betting smokes that our end
is just as close

Things are so the same.
And all I really care,
bring myself to say is that I know.
That I know, that I know.
And remember when they said,
just how long can your ideas
keep you warm, and
We just laughed that kind of nervous laugh.
We just sang along to that song that's on the radio.
To that song on the radio.

And you were right about,
Just how we'd figure out,
things change, but beliefs stay the same
You were right about (woah-oh)
Just how we'd figure out, (woah-oh)
a change of ideas, I know.
That I know, that I know-oh-woah, that I know-oh-oh-oh.
And remember when they said,
just how long can your ideas
keep you warm, and
We just laughed that kind of nervous laugh.
We just sang along to that song that's on the radio.
To that song on the radio.
To that song....on the radio.
