Track Name: E=MC Hammered
you've got a promise to make me and I've heard just as much before
well I could be mistaken
we're just holding up a house cards and our voices are breaking
and we know we're alone in this
so now we just keep on faking until we just can't take it anymore

shout out, three cheers
let's hear it for the breakdown
sing loud, and laud our passion for giving in
I've laid around this place for days
I never sleep, but I still keeping waking up

we've got a habit of aching but I can't get it through my head
it's an illusion of safety so I'll put my hope and trust in this
but the words all get twisted
and I'll find I'm alone again just like I never existed

shout out, three cheers
let's hear it for the breakdown
sing loud, and laud our passion for giving in
I've laid around this place for days
I never sleep, but I still keeping waking up

you've got a promise to make me
and I've heard just as much before
it's an illusion of safety
we're holding up a house cards and
the words just will twisted
I'll find I'm alone again
just like I never existed

shout out, three cheers
let's hear it for the breakdown
sing loud, and laud our passion for giving in
I've laid around this place for days
I never sleep, I'm giving up
I've laid around this place for days
I never sleep, I just stay fucked up
I've laid around this place for days
I never sleep, but I still keeping waking up
Track Name: Boxers Don't Have An Old Timers' Day
let's keep it together, we're a little stronger now
because we still believe in something more than giving up again
because home is where the hurt is
let's tear it down tonight
we may not look it, but we're still alive

so please don't be mistaken

we left a light on, but we're never coming home
we'll search for all the answers on the road
we set the fire, but never burned as bright
we never thought we'd make it out alive

let's keep it together, we're a little stronger now
friends are all we have here in this town
scream no surrender, it's written on our hearts
and all of this was built on our support

because you can't fucking fake this

we left a light on, but we're never coming home
we'll search for all the answers on the road
we set the fire, but never burned as bright
we never thought we'd make it out alive

sing this
we're never coming home again

we left a light on, but we're never coming home
we'll search for all the answers on the road
we set the fire, but never burned as bright
we never thought we'd make it out alive

because you can't fucking fake this
Track Name: When Life Gives You Lemons, Just Say Fuck The Lemons And Bail
you said that you can't take this
look at the scene you're making
give it up, just give it up
dull prose and allegory
a new day but the same old story
just let this go

now you've wasted all your time trying to get the best of me
you're mixed up and backwards, broken and scattered
I won't save you now

you tell me that you're breaking
but you've shown me what you're made of
give it up, just give it up
alcohol and indiscretion
part angst than part nostalgia
I don't want to know

now you've wasted all your time trying to get the best of me
you're mixed up and backwards, broken and scattered
I won't save you now

save all of your breath
save it so you can save yourself
save it for when there is nothing left

now you've wasted all your time trying to get the best of me
you're mixed up and backwards, broken and scattered
I won't save you now
Track Name: Boy, Do I Hate Being Right All The Time
write this off and chalk it up to things that we've been through
you still can take this seriously if we're speaking truth
they'll fill your head with what you want to hear
and craft all of their actions just to play into your fears

don't look back just let it go
we choose to rise above it all not sink below
so don't hold back
it'll drag you down like an anchor to the bottom
then you'll drown

tell yourself you're bound break down
pile on the abuse on this road to ruin everything
you'll never see this through

don't look back just let it go
we choose to rise above it all not sink below
so don't hold back
it'll drag you down like an anchor to the bottom
then you'll drown

we've got to settle down and take a moment to work this out

don't look back just let it go
we choose to rise above it all not sink below
so don't hold back
it'll drag you down like an anchor to the bottom
then you'll drown
Track Name: Just Keep Swimming
3 years down the road and holding on to open wounds
we try to make some kind of sense of what you had to do
we'll talk about what could have been and think of things we should have said
until we realize the truth was none of this is any use

life chewed you up and spit you out
get up keep breathing
push it back don't lose it
get up keep moving
I know what you've been through
get up keep dreaming
keep moving on

and there are times that things steal every fucking breath you take
beat you down and bend you back until you almost break
indecision, crushing doubt, nowhere left to run to now
what are you supposed to do when it seems there's nothing left to lose

life chewed you up and spit you out
get up keep breathing
push it back don't lose it
get up keep moving
I know what you've been through
get up keep dreaming
keep moving on

if you feel like you're falling apart lean into me, I'll carry you on
don't give up, don't give in, we stay strong for our friends

life chewed you up and spit you out
get up keep breathing
push it back don't lose it
get up
if you feel like you're falling apart lean into me, I'll carry you on
don't give up, don't give in, we stay strong for our friends
Track Name: Drink Your School, Stay In Drugs, And Don't Do Milk
let's start this story out with a 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8
and think back to the times that seem like only yesterday
we had time to kill without much planning
and self destruction seemed romantic
with nothing there to get us through
friends were family win or lose

when dawn goes down to day
you know that nothing gold can stay

we came from nothing
it could be that's where we belonged
we searched for something that would keep us all from feeling alone
you'll find comfort when you find some way to move on
you think we're bluffing, but those days are already gone

but we never had the chance to celebrate this moment,
we're moving off and moving on
we knew the answers, right or wrong
content to tear this town apart
devastation is all we've got

when dawn goes down to day
you know that nothing gold can stay

we search for something now we know for sure can never return
we've lost our bearings and our compass so we live what we've learned
we've got no destination

dawn goes down to day
nothing gold can stay

we came from nothing
it could be that's where we belonged
we searched for something that would keep us all from feeling alone
you'll find comfort when you find some way to move on
you think we're bluffing, but those days are already gone
