Track Name: The Beachmaster
Look into my face, can you tell me what's wrong?
I am out of place, I am going insane, and I don't have very long.
Look into your heart, I know it's heavy, it's beating.
I've seen it once before, though it's been a while.
And it's so sad, got nothing in your way.
And I'm so glad, no reason for you to stay.
No, there's nothing left to stay for (No matter what, I won't move backwards, hold your breath, I won't look back, no)
But it doesn't make me sad, no, cause there's nothing left to pay for (No matter what, I won't move backwards, save your breath, I won't look back, no)
See? You're just like me, underneath the moonlit sky.
See? We're all the same, we all live on borrowed time.
Look into my face, can you explain what's happening?
I don't know who I am anymore.
Look into my heart, is it there? Is it beating?
I knew it was before, though it's been a while.
And it's so sad, got nothing in your way.
And it's just too bad, there's no one else for you to blame.
Yeah, I know you're somewhere out there (No matter what, I won't move backwards, hold your breath, I won't look back, no)
But it doesn't make me sad, no, cause there's nothing left to pay for (No matter what, I won't move backwards, save your breath, I won't look back, no)
See? You're just like me, underneath the moonlit sky.
See? We're all the same, we all live on borrowed time.
Underneath the moonlit sky, that's where you'll find me.
I wanna hear you say you know why we're all the same.
You've got nothing in your way,
and I'm so glad, no reason for you to stay.
See? You're just like me, underneath the moonlit sky.
See? We're all the same, we all live on borrowed time.
Track Name: This Isn't the Fucking '80s
I don't know where I'm goin', but I sure like where I've been.
And if you wanna roll with me, darlin', you'd better hop right in.
I've been all around the world, ain't never found another girl like you, no. Don't you know it's true?
I don't know where I'm goin', but I sure like where I've been.
Went to hell and lived to tell, might as well check out heaven.
I've been all around the world, ain't never found another girl like you, no. Don't you know it's true?
Once you find yourself across that line, I'll meet you there, if I really care.
Once you find yourself across that line, I'll meet you there, if I really care. But I don't really fuckin' care at all.
I don't know where I'm goin', but I sure like where I've been.
And if you wanna roll with me, darlin', you'd better hop right in.
I've been all around the world, ain't never found another girl like you, no. Don't you know it's true?
You're so fine, baby.
So throw your hands up.
You're so fine baby.
I can't get you off of my mind.
I don't know where I'm goin', but I sure like where I've been.
And if you wanna roll with me, darlin', you'd better hop right in.
I've been all around the world, ain't never found another girl like you, no. Don't you wish that statement was true?
Track Name: A Boy Named Danger
We’re not the ones who are to blame for all your selfish mistakes.
You’re playin’ a dangerous game, and round and round we go.
Do you see the fire in our eyes?
Then it should come to no surprise, we’re comin’ for you, and we’re singin’ it louder than ever.
Never wanted to see that monster that you could be,
But I’m not surprised,
I see that look in your eyes.
We’re not the ones who are to blame for all your selfish mistakes.
You’re playin’ a dangerous game, and round and round we go.
Do you feel it inside you?
One step off the ground.
Nowhere, nowhere. Nowhere to be found.
Never wanted to see that monster that you could be,
But I’m not surprised,
I see that look in your eyes.
Never wanted to see that monster that I could be,
But you’re not surprised,
You see that look in my eyes.
It’s never gonna change til I get you out of my way.
We’re not the ones to blame for,
We know cause we learn from mistakes we make.
I swear that I won’t let you pull me down, no more.
Do you feel it inside you?
One step off the ground.
Nowhere, nowhere. Nowhere to be found.
Track Name: The City at Sea
I taste your lips and the silent lies that always drip from them every day.
And I see the lies, and it comes to no surprise once again, my dearest friend.
Can’t you see what this cold and crooked world has done to me?
I lie awake in bed, thinkin’ all these awful thoughts all in my head.
I try to realize a life for neither you nor I exists, eternal bliss.
But I’ll turn my cheek,
Trying to hide you from seeing me contemplating this.
It grows right through you.
It controls everything that you do.
Did you ever think that you’d feel so alive,
With something so dark growing inside you?
Track Name: Audio Afterglow
Here we are once again,
Back on the chopping block with my friends.
I don’t want to offend, but hey, here we go again.
So let’s all go for a ride,
To the other side.
I don’t care and don’t mind,
When we get so high.
You wanna waste your life,
Why should I do that with mine?
I don’t pretend to know why,
We’re born, grow old, and die.
So let’s all go for a ride,
To the other side.
I don’t care and don’t mind,
When we get so high.
You walk on through just like you always wanted to,
And I, I’ll just float on by.
You gave me the words, but never ever taught me how to make them stay,
I want, I want it all to change.
And if it’s right, well I just might sit next to you,
Be right by your side.
Track Name: The Great Big Empty
Little bird says stay away,
I just wanna feel safe in my little cage,
But the big old cat is tryin’ to tear me apart.
Just walk away from me, I swear I’ll never tell.
This secret, I will keep, until I’m dead and buried.
Thought you would make it,
So I placed it all on your shoulders.
Knew you couldn’t take it,
So I made an example out of you.
Little boy says come and play,
I just wanna feel safe in this strange place,
But the big old world is dyin’ to tear him apart.
Just walk away from me, I swear I’ll never tell.
This secret, I will keep, until I’m dead and buried.
Thought you would make it,
So I placed it all on your shoulders.
Knew you couldn’t take it,
So I made an example out of you.
Oh, we lost our mind, body, and souls.
Here we are again, hangin’ off a ledge,
With no regard for consequence.
We played this game for far too long,
Now we’re stuck.
Just walk away from me, I swear I’ll never tell.
This secret, I will keep, until I’m dead and buried.
Thought you would make it,
So I placed it all on your shoulders.
Knew you couldn’t take it,
So I made an example out of you.
Oh, we lost our mind, body, and souls.
Track Name: When the World is One
When you find yourself lost in your despair,
Don’t think that nobody cares and told don’t fall too hard,
Remember, yeah, I care, and I’ll always be there and won’t let you fall too hard.
So, come a little closer and don’t be scared,
Cause we’re all here and it’s time for you to listen.
Come a little closer, yeah, if you dare,
Got a little lesson we’d love for you to hear.
Stand up and make yourself known,
You’ve got the room, now grow,
No one’s gonna old you back but yourself.
Breathe in, what else do you got to lose?
Don’t have to live like that anymore,
It’s something that you’ve gotta choose.
Breathe in, you’ve gotta find your bliss.
Of course, it won’t be easy,
But it sure as hell will be a whole lot better than this.
I fell down once before, and it didn’t hurt too much,
Picked myself back off the ground, found myself in touch with you.
Now I’m back on my own feet,
Isn’t that something worth living for?
So, come a little closer and don’t be scared,
Cause we’re all here and it’s time for you to listen.
Come a little closer, yeah, if you dare,
Got a little lesson we’d love for you to hear.
Breathe in, what else do you got to lose?
Don’t have to live like that anymore,
It’s something that you’ve gotta choose.
Breathe in, you’ve gotta find your bliss.
Of course, it won’t be easy,
But it sure as hell will be a whole lot better than this.
Oh, you wayward soul, traveler on an empty road,
Reaching out for a hand to guide you home.
Track Name: Haven
The sun came out, and you could see my sins.
You wanna write them down, point them out,
Where do you begin?
The more we learn, the less we understand.
I guess after all, we are only human.
This is the sound of waking up.
The sun came out, and you could see your sins.
You wanna push them out, be left without a doubt,
Where do you begin?
The more I know, the less I understand.
I guess after all, I am only just a man.
This is the sound of waking up.
Waking up when you feel you’ve had enough.
The sun came out, and you could see your sins.
You wanna get them out, be left without a doubt,
Where do you begin?
This is the sound of waking up.
Track Name: I Should've Been an Astronaut
You find yourself alone,
No one there to protect you,
You thought that no one would know,
That little secret you hide.
But did you think that no one
Would ever find out what you did?
Well, I know what you hide,
And I know what’s inside you.
Just brought it up, just to bring you back down,
Everybody’s coming around to see the spectacle that became you and me.
Can you tell, can you tell me that everything, everything is so lovely?
Yet underneath, I know you’re ugly, deep underneath.
Underneath the moonlight,
Coming for you tonight,
And you’re so scared, so terribly unprepared.
Why even try looking for things that’ll never satisfy your mind?
‘Cause I know what’s inside you.
Just brought it up, just to bring you back down,
Everybody’s coming around to see the spectacle that became you and me.
Can you tell, can you tell me that everything, everything is so lovely?
Yet underneath, I know you’re ugly, deep underneath.
How can you tell me that everything, everything is so lovely?
Yet underneath, I know you’re ugly, deep underneath.
Why even try looking for things that’ll never satisfy your mind?
‘Cause I know what’s inside you.
Just brought it up, just to bring you back down.
I never wanted to change those broken things inside you,
Always having to shake another piece of my pride.
Isn’t it enough to want the simple things inside you?
Always having to take the easy way out.
I just brought it up, just to bring you back down,
Everybody’s coming around to see the spectacle that became you and me.
Can you tell, can you tell me
That everything, everything is so lovely, yet underneath,
I know you’re ugly, deep underneath.
How can you tell me,
That everything, everything is so lovely, yet underneath,
I know you’re ugly, deep underneath.
Track Name: Some Were Meant to Struggle
Do you feel it underneath your skin at night?
Are you wondering what you’ll find within your mind?
Careful what you wish for, ‘cause you just might get it.
Practice what you preach, or live to regret it.
Cause every day of my life might seem like a new adventure,
But you don’t know what’s inside (hey), or how hard it is to tame the monster (be careful what)
You know you can’t fight it, so don’t even try (you wish for, hey),
The weight of the world will bury you alive (be careful what),
And now you got me thinkin’, I guess you’re right (you wish for),
It doesn’t even matter if you’re already dead inside (oh yeah).
Careful what you wish for, ‘cause you just might get it.
Practice what you preach, or live to regret it.
‘Cause every day of my life might seem like a new adventure,
But you don’t know what’s inside or how hard it is to tame the monster.
Never figured out how this all worked,
But I’m finding now, it never mattered to begin with.
I’m always the first and last,
But I’m not gonna fall back.
I’m finding now, it never mattered to begin with.
I can feel it creepin’ underneath my bones,
And I’m just wondering when the hell it’s gonna leave me alone or not.
Careful what you wish for, ‘cause you just might get it.
Practice what you preach, or live to regret it.
‘Cause every day of my life might seem like a new adventure,
But you don’t know what’s inside or how hard it is to tame the monster.
You know you can’t fight it, so don’t even try,
The weight of the world will bury you alive,
And now you got me thinkin’, I guess you’re right,
It doesn’t even matter if you’re already dead inside (oh yeah, already dead inside).
Never figured out how this all worked,
But I’m finding now it never mattered to begin with.
I’m always the first and last,
But I’m not gonna fall back.
I’m finding now it never mattered to begin with.
