Track Name: Like Dynamite
Like Dynamite

I think we’re getting close, but nobody knows
I’ve asked around and there’s a difference of opinion in where this road may really go
It feels we’re getting cold, but we may never know
And if you listen closely, you’ll hear somebody saying no

Nobody has to know
It went much further than it had to go
I thought this was my second home
A place where I can lick my wounds and rest my broken bones
Now we’re all alone
And if you listen closely, you’ll hear somebody saying

This is what I deserve
I don’t know why I ever thought you were as good as your word

Teach me to walk in a new direction
Show me how to like my own reflection
I can see your eyes are rolling into the back of your head again

There’s a real fine line
I cross it all the time
If anybody happens to find a mind, well it’s mine
The worst part never ever got any better
and the lingering effect may just follow me forever

I guess this is what I deserve
I don’t know why I ever thought you were as good as your word

Teach me to walk in a new direction
Show me how to like my own reflection
I can see your eyes are rolling into the back of your head again

Maybe I’ll be better off just hanging out alone up on the rooftop
That could be the remedy
Tell me something I can believe

I can see your eyes are rolling into the back of your head again

Maybe I’ll be better off just hanging out alone up on the rooftop
That could be the remedy
Tell me something I can believe
Track Name: Time Slipped Away
Time Slipped Away

Every time I feel like everything is falling into place
all the wheels come off and suddenly
the world decides to race
The more I think about the malady, the harder to keep pace
The only thing that comes to mind is a past I can’t erase

This is what real emptiness feels like
This is what they mean when they say

It was all your imagination,
It was all just a real bad dream
You can search for an explanation
but you’re standing in front of a blue screen
And you’re doing what they tell you to do
Yeah, you’re saying what they tell you to say
And then it finally hits you
Time slipped away

Every time I feel like everything is falling into place,
all the wheels come off and suddenly
the world decides to race
The more I think about the malady, the harder to keep pace
I used to feel just half-alive
Now I just feel ashamed

This is what real emptiness feels like
This is what they mean when they say

It was all your imagination,
It was all just a real bad dream
You can search for an explanation but you’re standing in front of a blue screen
And you’re doing what they tell you to do
Yeah, you’re saying what they tell you to say
And then it finally hits you
Time slipped away
Track Name: Life’s Hard (No One Gets Out Alive)
Life’s Hard (No One Gets Out Alive)

I’ve got a feeling you’re not hearing the opinion you want to
But we both know some things are better left unsaid
No, I never knew how well I would get to know you
But it feels like I’ve been hanging on to the edge

I don’t know what to say
I try to delay
But my conscience always gets in my way
I’m somewhere between courageous and green
but I still don’t know what yellow could mean

Now there’s a stripe on my back
and as a matter of fact

I hope that this is all we have to go through
and we both come out much better on the other side
While it’s a little early to predict how this affects you
honestly it’s all that’s on my mind

I don’t know what to say
I try to delay
But my conscience always gets in my way
I’m somewhere between courageous and green
but I still don’t know what yellow could mean

Now there’s a stripe on my back
and as a matter of fact

I think we’re all out of slack now
But there’s no turning back now
We gotta get back on track now

And there’s a few things that I think you should know
Take this real slow
Let’s go all night, we can fight sunlight
No one said we have to believe
Let’s do this right
We can block the whole world’s sight now

I think we’re all out of slack now
But there’s no turning back now
We gotta get back on track now

I don’t know what to say
I try to delay
But my conscience always gets in my way
I’m somewhere between courageous and green
but I still don’t know what yellow could mean

Now there’s a stripe on my back,
and as a matter of fact
that’s not gonna change
