Track Name: Be Fine Forget
Be Fine Forget

Everything's so rushed you know
I barely have time to breath anymore
How can I make it more clear

The world keeps buzzing and it's hurting my ears
Don't want to listen any more
The clock is running out of time for me and I can't slow down

But not for you
It stops for you
Either way

The rain will come and the ground will flood but
We'll be fine stomping through puddles
The clouds will part and the sun will shine and
We'll be fine forget all our troubles

Everything works out you know
But we barely have time to figure it out oh man
The dust always settles somehow
And we don't know
How we'll get there ... but we do

The rain will come and the ground will flood but
We'll be fine stomping through puddles
The clouds will part and the sun will shine and
We'll be fine forget all our troubles

The rain will come and the ground will flood but
We'll be fine stomping through puddles
The clouds will part and the sun will shine and
We'll be fine forget all our troubles
Track Name: Might Always Be
Might Always Be

Well I don't want to hear that you're waiting on me
I don't want to feel that at all
Standing outside of the theatre with the silent star of the show

You should of left here a long long time ago and
You should of left this scene
You're hanging out now for god knows why
And you might always be

Standing outside of this theatre thinking you should see the world and maybe the screen
You're hanging out now for God knows why
And you might always be

You're still (now) when you would have been dancing (and)
The silence breaks each part of your heart
Standing outside of the theatre with the star that just wants to go

You should of left here a long long time ago and
You could just exit the scene
You would be singin' out loud on this star filled night
But you just want to scream

Standing outside of this theatre thinking - need a new stage the stage, need a new scene
You're hanging out now for God knows why
And you might always be

Standing outside of this theatre thinking You should see the stage and maybe the screen
You're hanging out now for God knows why
And you might always be
You migh always be
Track Name: Queen of the PCT
Queen of the PCT

When everything is done we can hesitate
We can let it all slide and wake up late
When we got no place to go

We could lay around we could rest our bones
When our world stops spinning and we're all alone
When we got no place to go

She don't want a ride Gonna walk this trail
Rather be the hammer
Than to be the nail
And she got so far to go

Her mother's gone now at 45
She's out in the desert feeling 1/2 alive
And she got so far to go

And she laughs to make it look easy
But she cries when she's out of sight
She'll show just what she needs to

But she'll never ever go back
Never ever go back
Never gonna go back
Never gonna back there again

They call her the Queen of the PCT
No she don't pay for drinks
They're delivered for free
And she got so far to go

And she laughs to make it look easy
But she cries when she's out of sight
She'll show just what she needs to

But she'll never ever go back
Never ever go back
Never gonna go back
Never gonna back there again

When everything is done we can hesitate
We can let it all slide and wake up late
When we got no place to go

We could lay around we could rest our bones
When our world stops spinning and we're all alone
When we got no place to go
Track Name: Almost Over
Almost Over

I can't take another minute here, not any more
I don't want to waste another minute here like before
I don't want to know don't want to find out where you've been
I don't want to stay don't want to fake it all again

Tell me what do you want if you even know
Tell me there's some place that you'd rather go
Tell me if would ease on your mind at all

Cause I just can't hear from you
All the same talk all over again
All over again

Cause we ain't never found yet out what's right for us
It's been too long to wait much longer
Can agree on that much

Cause the night is almost over
And we ain't got much further
And the corner of the room just ain't no place to go

Tell me what you do want if you even know
Tell me there's some place that you'd rather go
Tell me if would ease on your mind at all

Cause we just sit here repeating
All the same talk all over again

Cause we have never found yet out what's right for us
It's been too long to wait much longer
Can agree on that much

Cause the night is almost over
And we ain't got much further
And the corner of the room ain't where we want to go
Track Name: Give Me One More
Give Me One More

She said take me away
To some place we've never been
We've been stuck in this place
And everything's just grey

She stopped believing
Now her bag is laying in the stairs
I've been lying through my face
When her's been covered in tears

So if you don't walk away
And you give me one more chance
We could see it all I know we could
Even the dolphins of France

What am I doing here
And what have I done
Made a mess of everything
That I was certain that was all so clear

She stopped believing
Now her bag is laying in the stairs
I've been lying through my face
When her's been covered in tears

So if you don't walk away
And you give me one more chance
We could see it all I know we could
Even the dolphins of France
Track Name: Want To Hurt Everyone
Want To Hurt Everyone

Well I never imagined it would end this way
Take my soul man he take it away
I'd never get up before the sun
And I never thought I'd want to hurt everyone

But two little orange devils whisper in my ear
One kicked off an angel that was sitting right there
No push and pull fight anymore
It's just push push pushing through all the wrong doors

He's getting fired up and he's turning red
Taking up residence inside my head
I can't wait now I gotta leave this place
Want take over the whole human race

Well the little orange Devil he got places to go
People to meet and to get to know
He'll walk them all into the gates of hell
While he's playing guitar just like ringing a bell

And you won't see him coming he won't give you a chance
He'll be so charming even ask you to dance
He's watching from a distance and he's taking names
He don't mess around he ain't playing games

You'll get his message he got something to say
He'll say it so quiet you'll lean in his way
He's got to keep moving he got places to go
He's go people to meet and to get to know
to know, to know, to know, to know

The little orange devil whisper in my ear
One kicked off an angel that was sitting right there
No push and pull fight anymore
It's just push push pushing through all the wrong doors
Track Name: I Really Want You To Leave
I Really Want You To Leave

There's no reasoning with me
And I'm sure that she'd agree
That I make no friends when I state my opinions

Her moods not just off slightly
I have to tread lightly
But somehow she shines brightly under that soft moon

Well I'm not looking to be someone you'll remember
That's just not important to me
I'm lacking common decency
I don't care if you approve, or if you disagree

I'm under no false illusion
We can expect a good conclusion
Let's remember any grain of goodness while we can

Now your perfume is making me choke
Could you leave it home for someone who cares
It's no joke
I really want you to leave

There's no reasoning with me
And I'm sure that she'd agree
That I make no friends when I state my opinions

I'm under no false illusion
We can expect a good conclusion
Let's remember any grain of goodness while we can
Track Name: A Good Fight
A Good Fight

Well someone around here must have heard the sounds
Of the sirens tearing through this excuse of a town
I knew she could not wait for me I've seen it all before
She said so many things that I could not ignore

Well that night's so clear me, the lights we flashing, they were coming to me
Well no one could stop me, I had to make it right
I had to see how she's been doing
Well she's been doing good
And she put up a good fight

And there were goosebumps when she saw me in the mirror
She knew that it was over and it was ...

Well none of us could know back then what we would become
We never dreamed we'd dream of anything like this
Those days are over now and all days are gone for some
And those of us left well we might steal one kiss

And there were goosebumps when she saw me in the mirror
She knew that it was over and it was ...

She wasn't waiting on me but I'd be right there
I remember every detail from the cracks of my stare
She wasn't waiting on me maybe it wasn't right
But remember every detail from that last time...the last fight

And there were goosebumps when she saw me in the mirror
She knew that it was over and it was ...
Track Name: Easy To Be
Easy To Be

Well the's one place on earth
Where everyone can see all the lights shine
In the movies in the music
Man you can't get away from New York

If you can it here man
You can make it everywhere

'Cause New York City is like that
It's full of cowboys, and discos and punk bands
It's not hard to dream in New York
There's something for everyone here in New York

Well there's one place on earth
That will break you heart and sit back laughing
'Cause from morning to the evening
Man you won't catch a break in New York

'Cause New York City is just like that
It's full of cowboys, and discos and punk bands
It's not hard to dream in New York
There's something for everyone here in New York

Step out on those street and everything changes
Tired my imagination runs in strange places
Come with me don't want to be alone
It's too easy to be alone in New York

'Cause New York City's just like that
It's full of cowboys, and discos and punk bands
It's not hard to dream in New York
There's something for everyone here in New York

Look up to the sky and you might not find it
They'll swallowed up in the city but you just can't quit
Come with me don't want to be alone
It's too easy to be alone in New York

It's too easy to be alone in New York
It's too easy to be
It's too easy to be
It's too easy to be alone in New York
Track Name: Dry These Tears
Dry These Tears

Tell me where does the time go
Cause I'm not seeing things so clear
I got 15 dollars but it's not enough for cab fare

It's time for us to wake up
And get the hell out of here
Let's buckle down, tear down the walls and dry these tears

Tell me now what are you waiting for
'Cause I don't know
Tell me the one thing I need to know
Tell me why you'd wake up lonely
When I'm standing for you right here
Let's buckle down, let's lock the doors and dry these tears

We could start it all over
Like it's a brand new year
Find a new place, paint the walls when we get there
It's time for us to wake up
And fix everything my dear
Let's buckle down, we'll find new doors, and dry these tears

Tell me now what are we waiting for
'Cause I don't know
Tell me the one thing I need to know
Tell me why you'd wake up lonely
When I'm standing for you right here
Let's buckle down, we'll lock new doors, and dry these tears
