I don’t know who put you up to this, but I’m gonna find out, someday You got me driving to the airport on a Sunday And I know you’ll give me hate for this Yeah they’ll burn you at the stake for this I’m burning up all the obligations And I’m gonna take a permanent vacation If only I could feel so free To call you now would be a breeze So tell me when you feel the need We’re letting go for real In another life I was a bitch In another life I was your bitch Here’s how it turned out In another life I was a fish, Now I’m sitting on the fucking dish And I’m good enough for the main course Even if I’m the one that’s paying for it If only I could feel so free To call you now would be a breeze So tell me when you feel the need We’re letting go for real

In Flight 03:25
Nothing ever changes in this town The people die or they move out Everyone but me And I don’t see a future anymore It’s been obvious before to everyone but me Life is short And the cliffs are high I don’t have to close my eyes To see us in flight Everyone’s a cynic in this world They all want to take their turns Turning it on me And I thought that I saw you in my dreams Flipping through a magazine For something sweet I thought I’d laugh Then I cried It’s like I’m living in a lullaby

Otherside 03:10
Days of darkness fade to night Peering through I can see a crack of light Slivers of hope, they fade to rust My daydreams crumble into dust I walk alone as far as I can find You stop and ask if i’m alright There's a hole so big I cannot fill I don't want you to try but I know you will Through the grief and tears I cannot hide I’ll see you see you see you on the other side I know that time’s supposed to heal Tell me something good something real Now I paint my face and pretend I look for answers in a well that has no end I know that I’m supposed to call a friend Can’t waste all day alone in bed But there’s that hole where you once been Now the light is streaming in Through the grief and tears I cannot hide I’ll see you see you see you on the other side

Nothing in this life is really free Nothing in this life is really free I want to roll the dice again and again my friend Faith is child’s play, chance is my religion I want to roll the dice again I want to roll the dice again Win big, win lose, that’s just how the game works In this city money talks, that’s just how the world works Making rich another man Making rich another man I just want to win Nothing in this life is really free Nothing in this life is really free I want to roll the dice again and again my friend Emptying my bank account chasing a real living I wanna roll the dice again (I just want to win) He’s the deceiver, he tells you what you want and then he leaves You’re the believer, nothing in this life is really free He’s the deceiver, he tells you what you want and then he leaves You’re the believer, nothing in this life is really free

Babe I wanna feed your hunger Babe I wanna feed your hunger I had a little too much fun today I got caught up in a memory that took me away I was trying to escape but I couldn’t wake I’ve got a headful of sugar Want to make your heart beat faster I’ve got a headful of sugar Want to defeat your power Babe, I wanna feed your hunger I had a little too much fun today I got caught up in a memory that took me away I was trying to escape but I couldn’t wake I’ve got a headful of sugar Want to make your heart beat faster I’ve got a headful of sugar Want to defeat your power Babe, I wanna feed your hunger

I said something wrong No surprises there People say provocateur That’s the word I’m looking for I said something rude It happens all the time I get myself into trouble when I cross the line I don’t have control sometimes I don’t have control sometimes Locked out of my house Get a terrible tattoo Scroll through my contacts call every number besides you Meet a stranger at a bar and spill my secrets for all time Wasted all my money on Tecate and some limes I don’t have control sometimes I don’t have control sometimes No no no I don’t have control sometimes I don’t have control sometimes On Friday I don’t care what’s the future brings On Sunday I stay home and close my blinds. And I don’t care what tomorrow thinks Today I’m totally mine. I don’t have control sometimes I don’t have control sometimes No no no I don’t have control sometimes I don’t have control sometimes

Stand By Me 02:44
When we met I thought I was dreaming I want to see you that way Stood by all my heartache, built me up through the pain Now I feel something’s different You want me to stay in my lane You want a girl who sits back and takes it That’s not the way that I play Are you man enough to stand by my side? (Are you man enough to stand by my side, got myself together but it’s so hard not to cry) Are you strong enough to ride this ride? (Are you strong enough to tell me that I’m right, do you really think that we can make it through the night?) When you find someone quiet Obeying everyone of your words Who's gonna worship your footsteps You like em’ seen and not heard You’ll remember this feeling You’ll remember my face Cause I’m not the one who’s stopping And you're still screaming my name Are you man enough to stand by my side? (Are you man enough to stand by my side, got myself together but it’s so hard not to cry) Are you strong enough to ride this ride? (Are you strong enough to tell me that i’m right, do you really think that we can make it through the night?) Do you think this is easy? I don’t want to be strong all of the time Do you think this is easy I’ve carried this for so long all of the time Are you man enough to stand by my side? (Are you man enough to stand by my side, got myself together but it’s so hard not to cry) Are you strong enough to ride this ride? (Are you strong enough to tell me that I’m right, do you really think that we can make it through the night?)

Post Love 02:39
Post heart, post break Post love, post hate Backtrack, erase Can’t shake your taste I can’t sleep straight I can’t sleep straight In dreams I could still be your lover Dogs will always fuck another I don’t want to give into that night I don’t want to learn what another body likes I don’t want to wrong when it feels so right But what do we owe each other in this life? It’s the truth I don’t know what that is It’s the truth That it’s you that I miss In the dark Cause when push comes to shove Yeah it’s love And the truth on my lips Bad thoughts replay Drive me insane I dance alone while the tears stream down my face I can’t think straight i can’t think straight Now you’re lying with another Everyone lies to each other I don’t want to give into the night I don’t want to learn what another body likes I don’t want to wrong when it feels so right But what do we owe each other in this life? It’s the truth I don’t know what that is It’s the truth That it’s you that I miss In the dark Cause when push comes to shove Yeah it’s love And the truth on my lips

Baby don't cry It's just the radio playing in the back It’s playing sad sad songs now Just like when we were kids Baby don't cry It's the only thing that's got your back It’s playing sad sad songs now But i'm not sad sad sad Cooking dinner for one Got the caretaker on Lyrics make me exhausted I just need to clear my head Tv makes me so mad Npr is always telling me something bad Everything made in boardroom gets pumped straight into my head Baby don't cry It's just the radio playing in the back It’s playing sad sad songs now Just like when we were kids Baby don't cry It's the only thing that's got your back It’s playing sad sad songs now But i'm not sad sad sad Give me that nostalgic tone The one that takes me back To an imaginary life With an imaginary past. Sometimes I feel I found something real Baby don't cry It's just the radio playing in the back It’s playing sad sad songs now Just like when we were kids Baby don't cry It's the only thing that's got your back It’s playing sad sad songs now But i'm not sad sad sad It’s playing sad sad songs Sad sad sad Sad sad sad Baby don’t cry Please don’t cry Sad Sad Sad Baby don’t cry Please don’t cry Please don’t cry Baby don’t cry Please don’t cry

I can see the lights now Evil city yeah it’s misunderstood We can beat the odds now Evil people our intentions are good Alright alright alright We can turn the lights down We can turn them where you think we should I can taste success now Late night late night late nights Nightfall takes the land Nightfall takes the land Nightfall takes the land Nightfall takes the land Yeah I think we fit in now Do you think they can see through our disguise We can beat the odds now If they just only believe the lies We tell we tell we tell Underneath the surface Everyone’s more wicked than they should We can beat the odds now Beat them for good Nightfall takes the land Nightfall takes the land Nightfall takes the land Nightfall takes the land

Yeah yeah yeah I keep replaying the same old games in my mind mind mind I’ve had some lovers and I swear I wasted all of their time Cause late at night you know emotions run high high high Don’t be so crazy and call someone baby baby yeah Yeah yeah yeah If I say I love you will you forget it by tomorrow? I love forgetting things I never meant because they’re hollow And maybe if you’ve had a lover you can find another What are you trying to protect? What are you trying to protect? What are you trying to protect? Yeah
