Track Name: Long Drive Home Sing Along
If we stay on this road for long enough
We might remember the words
That we've forgotten in these songs
But if you can't remember
Rely on how you feel
Hand in mine, hearts entwined, and us together
With us together

And miles and miles a daze of broken words
Each pave the way for affirmation
Pave the way for truths
I can never find any of the proper words to say
But I always sing, yes I always sing

You can't hold on to things you've left behind
Face regret, don't be scared
We have come too far to quit
And if you can not face your fears in time to speak
You can always sing, you can always sing

So put the car in gear
And let's get away from here
And turn the volume up
Each moment sings the greatest song
I felt it all along

If you can stay awake for long enough
We might remember the words
That we've forgotten in these songs
But if you can't remember
Rely on how you feel
Hand in mine, hearts entwined, with us together
With us together

The road is long, we've come so far
And you're more perfect than I thought
Let's grab a drink at our favorite bar
Then I'll take you anywhere you want
I might not have a lot to give
Just my crazy thoughts and the songs I sing
But my heart is packed and ready
I have waited oh so long for this

We must let go of all the pain we've saved
Face the facts, take a step
We have come too far to quit
When fate is good and ready
We'll finally know the way
And the words to sing, yes the words to sing

So put the car in gear
And let's get away from here
Keep on heading down this road
We might be going nowhere
Is that the fastest you can go?

On the long drive home
From heading nowhere, we'll sing along
Louder now
To drown out all we've lost
Don't touch that dial
Don't turn it down
Just stop, and breathe, and sing
And sing on the long drive home

We'll sing along to the radio in our hearts
Track Name: Nature's Candy
There's something new about you, love
That no one can explain, not even you
There's something amazing, some kind of affection
That draws me near to you

But I can barely understand, so how could you?
But I can barely understand, so how could you?

There's something I can not grasp in you
Something I think that no one could, not even you
It's a love for life that whispers in your smile
And draws me near to you

But how could you understand unless I showed you?
And how could I ever explain unless I told you?

They call you nature's candy
Well I think they found the perfect words
So they call you sweet as heaven
And perfection falls behind in second
And I don't think I ask too much
Except the time every now and then
And I don't think I ask too much
Except for you to just be you

And you could say I barely know you
And I'll admit that's true; I know it's true
But if you could just give me the chance to get to
I'd like to; if that's okay with you
I know this comes across as crazy talk
A muttered diatribe of lonely words
I know this comes across as all wrong
It always does, it always does, it always does

They call you nature's candy
Well I think they found the perfect words
So they call you sweet as heaven
And perfection falls behind in second
And I don't think I ask too much
Except the time every now and then
And I don't think I ask too much
Except for you to just be you

For you to just be you...
Track Name: One Unstoppable Force
No lies this time
It's really been awhile
No silly love song I've forgotten now
Can drown this out
It seems that love can overcome
It doesn't matter how hard you fight it
Seems that everything has changed
This time around

So memories betray
When really they should be forgotten
Like times we've shared before
And lines that we've exchanged
Something wants you back
My mind, my heart, my body
Make this all go away
With a kiss to save a bandage
From you, girl

Everything I've left behind
Is strengthening me now
Always thought I knew the way
But I've been wrong before
After all of my mistakes
In my youth I'm always trying
I'm crawling back for more
Kiss me or hate me once again
Either way I've reached an end

I guess it's the worry that I'll never know
What we might have been now that we've changed
I guess it's lasting thoughts that I'll never know
If what we had is gone forever
I guess it's the question if we could've lasted
Now that we have grown
I guess that now we've found ourselves
We'll never find each other

So memories betray
When really they should be forgotten
Like times we've shared before
And lines that we've exchanged
Something must want you back
My mind, my soul, my body
Let this all just slip away
With a kiss to save a bandage
From you, girl
Track Name: There's More Here (Than Meets The Eye)
Say hello, say goodbye
A glimpse back, a passing glance
Shake things up a bit and stop to think
What actually had been
When our daily glimpse arrived
I thought I saw much more inside
A movie playing in rewind

Rearrange the pieces
See a hint of what's to come
A day, a night, a laugh, a talk
A flirt, a kiss, a time will come
When I'll miss your smile so much
I miss your smile so much
I always have

So look behind the actor
And look beyond the stage
Throw away the dagger
And the poison prop as well
See beyond my foolish ties
To keep the real locked up inside
For there is so much more than meets the eye
With every kiss I faked for you

I keep your number down on paper
Even though it's memorized
Keep it safe to show myself
That you had taken the time
To write it down, and think about me
Even for a second...for one second...

So look behind the actor
And look beyond the stage
Throw away the dagger
And the poison prop as well
See beyond my foolish ties
To keep the real locked up inside
For there is so much more than meets the eye
With every kiss I faked for you

Throw your head back with your cue
And close your eyes without a word
A thousand thoughts inside my mind
As I strive to say my line
See that this is killing me
Die for you to hold on to
My Juliet, for one last second
Track Name: Two More Days
Two more days, a few more hours
And I'll be back with you
And all the things I see, and miss, inside my head
Seem real too
I hope this hazy dream I'm in
Eventually will let me wake
And I will see your eyes there waiting once again

I've said it once, I've said it twice
Without you I can not survive
Without you I am just a hollow ghost of what I love
And I could write a thousand songs
Just to help these days along
Just to hide the fact that you aren't here with me
That you aren't here with me

Two more days, a few more hours
Until I hold you; never letting go
And then I'll whisper in your ear
With hope I'll hear "I love you too"
I know that you are thinking of this too
I hope I'm not as crazy as I seem

Sincerely yours, is not enough
A letter sent is useless too
Simple pen and ink could never mean all that it should
And I could write a thousand songs
Just to help these days along
Just to hide the fact that you aren't here with me
That you aren't here with me
Track Name: So, You're In Love With A Boy Scout
He holds rank, but does he hold your heart?
I think you're lying to yourself
Promise made to God and country
But not a word mentioned of your body
I know you love him - keep him close
Even though he lives so far away
He keeps his hands on top of your clothes
Even though his touch is what you crave

Is he too good for that?
Is he too strong for that?
Is he too inexperienced?
Would we stand in line to earn his merit badge
To help him finally understand?

Speaking honestly
I know he losing
Never seeing me
As I stand and laugh
He does his best for life and limb
But never understanding you
Understanding you

He keeps his buttons snapped
Shirt clean, and pressed to impress
But his paper cut-out look's to sharp for you
Hard to hold without discomfort
Hard to feel all but cold

You need someone different
Someone a little less than protocol
Someone that doesn't quite fit in
Something you've never felt before
It might not mean much, after all that's been
But at least I know who I am...

Is he too good for that?
Is he too strong for that?
Is he too inexperienced?
Would we stand in line to earn his merit badge
To help him finally understand?

Speaking honestly
I know he losing
Never seeing me
As I stand and laugh
He does his best for life and limb
But never understanding you
Understanding you...never understanding you...
Track Name: Cute. Smart. Sane. Pick Two.
Hello, how are you?
I'm less than perfect since we both last talked
Instead of silence on the other line
There's fires in its place

I could never be what you want
I could never be so much at once
I know that you're perfect
I just wish you'd see
Trying to be perfect isn't easy
Every day you beg for me
Pretending that you are soft
What happened her before?
Before this was a slavery?

Be your friend, be your lover, or be my enemy
Why can't you pick two? Why can't you pick two?
Honesty admits that I can't carry all the weight
You gave to me, gave to me

Goodbye...
Your death threat's holding on the other line
Before too long I'll just hang up
Like you care, like you ever cared

I have always held the world for you
No matter how much you have destroyed
And I would build it all back for you
But would you even notice?
I can be the one that follows you
And wallows in my disrepair
Or I can be the one who overthrows
And watch you disappear

And I can be the one who overthrows
And watch you disappear

Be your friend, be your lover, or by my enemy
Why can't you pick two? Why can't you pick two?
Honesty admits that I can't carry all the weight
You gave to me, gave to me
Track Name: Hapless Conversation From A Bathtub Confessional
So what do we do now?
We've reached the highest point in life
Euphoria is a word that might describe
This sickly lullaby
If you feel safe inside this mold
You never will be happy
You're exposed to the real world
Take a chance and do things wrong

But who are we to say what people do?

Does he deserve you? You deserve better.
I guess that those go hand in hand
And I'll keep moving forward
Until we're happier together
I've reached a point where I'm surviving
On mistakes and lies alone
It's nice to be acquainted
Balanced in this porcelain

Perhaps are fears are enough to fill this vessel?

I want to kiss you everywhere
I'd never say it though
I'm needing love from someone tangible
Instead of from my dreams
I'm sick of saying you're so cold
When really all I wish to say
Is I need you, I really do
You help me live

People worry for their enemies
And never for their friends
I don't know where they think they're going
But they will never get there
Add some jealousy, and mix hurriedly
A dash of sadness might spice things up
You seem so comfortable
Sitting there across from me

So beautifully relaxed...
I hope she calls me...
I would really love to take things back.

I want to kiss you everywhere
I'd never say it though
I'm needing love from someone tangible
Instead of from my dreams
I'm sick of saying you're so cold
When really all I wish to say
Is I need you, I really do
You help me live
Track Name: Open 'Til Sunrise
There's a change that happens
With the break of light
It brings out of the world
The image set before us
People act the way that they're expected to
As soon as they awake
They break into their daily costumes
And resume the life they've come to love
But late at night
Who do we become?

At 1 o'clock, we're dancing
To the rhythms in our heads
At 2 o'clock, we're dreaming
Of the lives we'll never live
At 3 o'clock, we're singing
With our silent jealousies
At 4 o'clock, at 5 o'clock
We'll do whatever that we please

So we took the chance and broke the mold
Expressed ourselves in ways told not to
Society was breathing down our necks
So we took the chance and broke the mold
Expressed ourselves in ways told not to
We did not bend, we only laughed

So keep alive your smile
The sun reflects it's beauty
Hide the lives that we've denied
Just to have another second
I'll make some coffee
How do you like it?
We should take a chance like this more often

Stories come and go of sleepless nights
That we have spent alone
Amazing histories of boring parties
Our boundaries end where sleep begins
I wish you could have seen it
Situation has a weakness
If you just let go

So we took the chance and broke the mold
Expressed ourselves in ways told not to
Society was breathing down our necks
So we took the chance and broke the mold
Expressed ourselves in ways told not to
We did not break, we only laughed

So keep alive your smile
The sun reflects it's beauty
Hide the lives that we've denied
Just to have another second
I'll make some coffee
How do you like it?
We should take a chance like this more often
Track Name: Red Filter Home Video
Step inside this perfect world
Packaged in home video
Living this example of what love could mean
Fate said 'take a number'
We drew one thirty-six
No matter how long it takes
We'll reach the end of this
I promise

You never see our arguments recorded
You never see us fight
You only see good faces
When everything's alright
Where every person plays their part
Puzzle pieces set in time
And every time you watch a tape
You can remember everyone
So hold the camera, please
Hold it steady, please
And breathe

Press record and we'll replay
Our moments spent together
Memories for years to come
You can't forget what's copied down
Regretting this is not an option
I'll see, and speak, and live it again
I'm seeing double as you act out your part
Watch as you avoid mistakes
Perfecting it within your soul
Fixing now the way we were

You never see our arguments recorded
You never see us fight
You only see good faces
When everything's alright
Where every person plays their part
Puzzle pieces set in time
And every time you watch a tape
You can remember everyone
So hold the camera, please
Hold it steady, please
And breathe

So please, hold the camera steady
Please, just breathe
Just breathe
Track Name: Cellar Door (Bonus Track)
We're praying to a spirit
Or a God that isn't listening
His children keep on killing
His children keep on dying
Were still not getting closer
To any kind of answer
To the question we're not asking
The desire that we're lacking

And the easy's getting harder
And days are getting longer
And the sun is getting hotter
On this planet we're destroying
We're all so good at lying
So pretend that nothing's happening
Let's focus us on our money
Even though our lives are ending

So turn away from the light
And unlock the cellar door
Make it down to where it's dark
Where the hate can't reach my soul
So this is how it ends
Gravely made or mistaken
Both seem appropriate
To describe the state we're in

I'm getting us some help
I think we all deserve some way out

We made up some religions
And fought over their purpose
We decided we'd believe in
Our certain kind of fictions
It all just sounds so pointless
When you look over the cosmos
The universe expanding
Without a single human ego

We seem so flammable
Always bursting into war
Ignoring things called love
That every life should know
But we put up our defenses
Until the concept's unimportant
When did we get so reckless?
So cold and ineffective

So turn away from the light
And unlock the cellar door
Make it down to where it's dark
Where the sickness can't reach my soul
See the blast between the cracks
Hear it humming through the soil
It won't be that long, it won't be that long
Before I shut my eyes and go

I'm getting us some help
I think we all deserve a little help
I'm getting us some help
I think we all deserve some way out
