Track Name: Back Of The Van
It's been two long years in these same four walls, I think I'm starting to get sick in the head.
The money's been slow but the nights go fast, we're just trying to get the sugar to last.
Death's still playing in my backyard, guitars breaking in the palms of my hands.
No more shaking in the back seat, not until we start to carry out with the plan.

We're in the back of the van,
We got a long road ahead of us.
We're getting out when we can,
We're going anywhere or bust.

We're in the back of the van,
We got a long road ahead of us.
We're getting out when we can,
We're going anywhere or bust.

Love doesn't mean a god damn thing when you treat it like a book on the shelf.
I didn't mean to be so blunt, it's just i saw that you we're looking for help.
Hey, you don't have to live that way.
No, you don't have to let him string you along.
But you're gonna have to help yourself honey, 'cause by the morning we'll already be gone.

So get your ass in the van,
We got a long road ahead of us.
We're getting out when we can,
We're going anywhere or bust.

So get your ass in the van,
We got a long road ahead of us.
We're getting out when we can,
We're going anywhere or bust.

(Guitar Solo)

So get your ass in the van,
We got a long road ahead of us.
We're getting out when we can,
We're going anywhere or bust.

So get your ass in the van,
We got a long road ahead of us.
We're getting out when we can,
We're going anywhere, We're going anywhere or bust.
Track Name: Enough About The Bullshit
I'm Awake.
I'm Awake, I can see, all the lights, In the room, over you, under me, under siege, in a dream.

I stay up all night floating into the abyss.
I'm ready, I'm ready to exist.
But enough about the bullshit it's not important,
Life's a portrait and we're in it.

I stay up all night floating into the abyss.
I'm ready, I'm ready to exist.
But enough about the bullshit it's not important,
Life's a portrait and we're in it.

I never Thought I'd Be the one to be in front of everyone, I don't want to mess this up again

I never Thought I'd Be the one to be in front of everyone, I don't want to mess this up again

I never Thought I'd Be the one to be in front of everyone, I don't want to mess this up again

I never Thought I'd Be the one to be in front of everyone, I don't want to mess this up again

I feel so close, yet so far away.
I feel so close, yet so far away.
Track Name: Everybody Knows
Everybody knows where your sister lives.
(Everybody knows!)
Everybody knows where your sister lives.
Everybody knows where your sister lives.
(Everybody knows!)
If I call her up she might give me a lift, she might give me a lift.

Andrea.
Andrea you know i want you so bad.
Andrea,
Andrea you know you make me so mad.

Everybody knows what your sister gives.
(Everybody knows!)
Everybody knows what your sister gives.
Everybody knows what your sister gives.
(Everybody knows!)
When I call her up she might give me a kiss, she might give me a kiss.

Andrea.
Andrea you know i want you so bad.
Andrea,
Andrea you know you make me so mad.

Everybody knows!
Everybody knows!

Andrea.
Andrea you know i want you so bad.

Track Name: Ready To Go
I think I'm ready for the future. I think I'm ready to go.
i think its time we started giving up 'cause i don't give a fuck anymore.
I think its time we started leaving, but there aint no place to go.

We got two blown speakers and nothing to show,
We got two blown speakers and nothing to show, We got two blown speakers and nothing to show, etc.

We've got nothing to show tonight, we've got nothing to show tonight.

I know this place is getting crowded, there isn't room left to stand. I think its time we started singing along as if nothing was wrong, oh yeah.
I know the futures looking hazy, I'm gonna stick to the plan.

We got two blown speakers and were ready to go,
We got two blown speakers and were ready to go, We got two blown speakers and were ready to go,
etc.

I said we're ready to go tonight,
I said we're ready to go tonight,
I said we're ready to go tonight.

We got two blown speakers and were ready to go,

Track Name: Perfect Strangers
I don't mean to make you sad, but father knows best and there's a target on my head. This doesn't mean our love is dead, the circumstance is cruel and i don't want things getting bad. You are the best I'll ever have. The only one to love me for who I truly am. I think it's best we make a plan, to never give up until we find each other again.

This is getting out of hand.
give up because we're in too deep, we can not be to certain.
of what may come, because the damage is done, now we're both on the run.
I hope that you can understand I did what I thought I had to do. I couldn't let you suffer. Times were hard on us both, I thought It best if I go, now I need you to know.

You and I wont always be side by side but I will always be here for you.
(x4)

This probably comes as a surprise, I know it's been a long time since I looked into your eyes. But these are feelings I can't hide. I waited so long just to be back by your side, and I don't blame you if you don't, because life goes on and time doesn't pass too slow. So here's a song for you I wrote, It's not worth much but i wanted you to know.

I don't want us to be perfect strangers.

You and I wont always be side by side but I will always be here for you.

Track Name: Let It All Flow
There's a panic in the city, the whole world has come undone. you're either drowning or you're swimming but I'm just baking in the sun.
And I don't care if I'm not helping, You can't change what happens next. There's no point in getting upset now, I can't help it if you're stressed.
I can't help it if you're stressed.

I've been climbing to the moon since the afternoon, I'm not trying to get high, I'm just trying to see something new.
You can carry that weight everywhere you go but you're never gonna make it 'till you let it all flow. Just let it all flow.

You may think that life is boring but you've seen this episode. You change your mind like changing stations and now you've missed half of the show.
Pretty soon we'll all be leaving, and there's no time to say goodbye. i say we use it while we got it and watch the fire burn the sky.

okay,

I've been climbing to the moon since the afternoon, I'm not trying to get high, I'm just trying to see something new.
You can carry that weight everywhere you go but you're never gonna make it 'till you let it all flow. Just let it all flow.

Track Name: The Flood
I don't know what you might be, we've got it bad it's got us crawling on our knees. They've got you looking after me, they've got you looking but your never gonna see.
I saw those people fill the streets, hollow faces from the lives they couldn't keep. You've got this city on her knees.
She's going under, shes been flooded by the sea.

so grab your rosaries and pray that everything isn't swallowed by the sea, pray to God it's all a dream. Pray to wake up from your sleep drenched in sweat and breathing deep.
This can't be happening, this changes everything.

so grab your rosaries and pray that everything isn't swallowed by the sea, pray to God it's all a dream. Pray to wake up from your sleep drenched in sweat and breathing deep.
This can't be happening, this changes everything.
This can't be happening.
Track Name: Bitch, You Did Me Wrong
Bitch, you did me wrong. Yes you did. You strung me along, and now you're gone with that other man, Whose no good, and if you marry him, I swear I will bury him in the woods.

Josephine, Why'd you do me the way that you do?
After all that i did for you, all the times that I cared for you, and you could care less. Now all i have left is this mess that you left.

Bitch, you did me wrong.
I thought you we're my friend.
Bitch, you cut me good.
But you wont cut me again.

I am not your friend. I am not your lover anymore, and all that I'm asking for is the reason why you need him when I'm here.

Bitch, you did me wrong.
I thought you we're my friend.
Bitch, you cut me good.
But you wont cut me again.

Bitch, are you stupid or just a little slow?
God I miss you so, why don't you come back home 'cause home is when I'm with you.
I don't know what to do, I know you miss me too.
Track Name: War, Sleep, Repeat
I'm bored again, the tension's killing me. I'm sorry friend but you did it it to yourself. Don't pretend this was meant to be. You lit the fire, I just let you burn it down.
Such a beautiful mess, yes you are. You're like a work of art. Why do you try so hard to tear yourself apart?

War, sleep, repeat.
It's all we're good for.

War, sleep, repeat.
It's all we're good for.

War, sleep, repeat.
It's all we're good for.

I thought you we're my friend, but you we're just my enemy.
So I'll tear you apart and then I'll fall back asleep again.
Track Name: Burning Like A Fever
I was burning like a fever when I woke the other night.
I dreamt we we're still together and you we're standing in the light.
Now you're sleeping with the devil but at least he keeps you warm.
You left me standing at the alter, you left me standing in the storm.

Now I'm floating in the wreckage, sometimes ships aren't meant to sail.
There's no sleeping when you're lonely, but melatonin never fails.
I've been waiting for a lifetime for this storm to pass me by, But when you're floating in the ocean you'll be floating till you die.

I trusted you.
I trusted you.

I was burning like a fever when I woke the other night.
I dreamt we we're still together and you we're standing in the light.
Now you're sleeping with the devil but at least he keeps you warm.
You left me standing at the alter, you left me standing in the storm.

I trusted you.
I trusted you.

I'm floating.
I'm floating again, I'm floating again.
I'm floating.
I'm floating with friends, I'm floating with friends.

I trusted you.
I trusted you.
Track Name: Sleep Machine
I've been sleeping for days because my body's run down. There's still a ghost in my bed so I've been sleeping on the couch.
You've got your head in the clouds and you don't know what you want.
But if you'd only come down I could show you what I've got.
I could show you what I've got.
I could show you what I've got.

I can't remember the name of the song, It was the one that you loved but I was singing it wrong. I had promised to play it when i missed you the most, but now I just play it because I know I missed the boat.

When I finally wake up will anybody be left?
Will the world have burned out like your last cigarette on a Friday night when your sitting at home because you pushed it all away? You don't have to be alone.

You can't lock the world out forever,
You can't lock the world out forever,
You can't lock the world out forever,
You can't lock the world out forever,
You can't lock the world out forever.
