Track Name: These Arms Won't Hold You
I want to share ideas with you,
but turning me down is all you do.

As I lie in bed, I'm wide awake.
Who turned you into somebody I hate?
Cause what you wanted...

I've settled down again
with someone else.
You don't know
how many times I've tried.

You ought to know by now
that I'll never take you back.
You went and crossed the line
about a dozen times.
I hope you burn in hell
for the wasted time.
I'll meet you down the line,
cause I...

I'll make you believe.
Track Name: Falling Forward in a Backwards Motion
You are self absorbed
in a world that's make-believe.
Now I think it seems
that you're absent without leave.

I will find a better life,
where water runs throughout my veins.
Where I go, I better not find you around.

And you are self absorbed
in a world that's make believe.
And now you smile at me.
You know the air's not safe to breathe.
Track Name: You Bring the Beer, We Bring the Dynamite
I know that people walk a straight line in my head.
With their subtleties around them in their bed.

Everything is all the same in the world.

How do you know that what you feel
in times like this is always real?
Handle life with two hands.
If you fall, you'll always land on your feet.

Everything is gonna change in the world.
(I know people walk a straight line in my head)
So we'll change who we are.
Track Name: As Long As We Got Something
There were times I've wasted
waiting around for you.
There were times I've wasted
waiting around for you when...

We've got something to believe in.

I told you so.
That I'd come back home again.
Track Name: Past, Present, Future
We used to laugh and run on wider smiles
(We're running out of jokes)
When all our beds could have been kitchen tiles
(We'd call the couch our home)
Don't go upstairs, you're only half-aware
(I don't trust a drink in you)
This is the room you swore you'd never share

How do I make this right?

Strange hearts are all but intact.
Strange hands run down on your back.
Drunk, you threw up food you ate last.
Did you grow up too fast?
