Track Name: Mess Around
Could you love me a little?
Would you even try?
I could be just what you're looking for
I'm fit as a fiddle
I might never die
But what's the use of living if we're not alive

Let's Mess around

Could you break off a little?
Could you be so kind?
Life's too long to live it all in our minds
We could hang in the middle
We could go up high
Life's too short to be alone tonight

Let's mess around
Track Name: Nothing Is Real
fire In a dream loaded with dynamite
explode the truth i got second sight
only future i see is for you and me
i'm never going to let you go

cause there is nothing else
there is nothing else

If nothing's true
and nothing's real
there's nothing left to lose
can't stop us now

you are the heat of burning in the light
hand on the gun that starts the firefight
only thing in this world that makes sense to me
i'm never going to let you go

cause there is nothing else
there is nothing else

if nothing's true
and nothing's real
there's nothing left to lose
can't stop us now
Track Name: Waves
I can't wait forever
fail every time I try
a promise is a promise
there has to be two sides
searching for the meaning
can't find a reason why
the world still turns without you
and I am still alive

fighting to keep from falling
in the deepest darkest blackest ocean
dark waves surround me
everywhere I go
nothing's going to last forever
even the deepest darkest clouds above me
You don't want to hold me down
I can't let let you go

let me tell a secret
everybody dies
in beautiful waves of color
you can't see with mortal eyes
pieces of a windshield
in a box I hide
i don't talk about it
I don't always sleep at night

fighting to keep from falling
in the deepest darkest blackest ocean
dark waves surround me
everywhere I go
nothing's gonna last forever
even the deepest darkest blackest ocean
you don't want to hold me down
I can't let you go
Track Name: Higher Self
Deep Down inside
we're all waiting for the end of the world
cause the world will never stop
stop trying to break our hearts

There's a way up to something better
A higher version of ourselves
There's a way up to something better
a higher version of ourselves

Let go of control
let the dying fruit fall off the seed
there's nothing we need to know
and there's nothing else we need

Who are you
who do you follow
can you see the world beyond yourself
who are you
who do you follow
can you see the world beyond yourself
Track Name: Waves - Acoustic
I can't wait forever
Fail every time I try
A promise is a promise
There has to be two sides
Searching for the meaning
Can't find the reason why
The world still turns without you
And I am still alive

Fighting to keep from falling
In the deepest darkest blackest ocean
Dark waves surround me
Everywhere I go
Nothing's gonna last forever
Even the deepest darkest clouds above me
You don't want to pull me down
I can't let you go

Let me tell a secret
Everybody dies
In beautiful waves of color
You can't see with mortal eyes
Pieces of a windshield
In a box I hide
I don't talk about it
I don't always sleep at night

Fighting to keep from falling
In the deepest darkest blackest ocean
Dark waves surround me
Everywhere I go
Nothing's gonna last forever
Even the deepest darkest clouds above me
You don't want to pull me down
I can't let you go
Track Name: Homesick - Acoustic
Drop acid by the covered bridge
Write with satan's chalk
Ditch all your uniforms
Before you run from the cops
Lock yourself in your best friend's bathroom
With a broken heart
Realize its all an illusion
Then head back to the start

Shoot your guns at the edge of the universe
Watch your bullets fly forever towards the end of time
Wherever you are if you're feeling too alone
I hope you know you can always come back home

Chain-smoke at Baker's Donuts
Ride the ferris-wheel
Drink bad coffee while you fall in love with
A punk rock girl
Get high on your brother's ditch-weed
But remember these nights
Maybe you try to hard
Maybe that's alright

Shoot your guns at the edge of the universe
Watch your bullets fly forever towards the end of time
Wherever you are if you're feeling too alone
I hope you know you can always come back home
Track Name: If We Could Breathe In Space - Acoustic
These kids will dance on our graves
With craft drinks and small plates
They're going to tear out our hearts
Put Live/Work lofts in their place

The rent's going to get to high
But We Still Have Some TIme
And going to own this town tonight

If we could breath in space
If we could get up there some way
We could make it our home
There's no-one there to displace

The Rent's Going To Get Too High
But we still have some time
And we're going to own this town tonight
Track Name: Mess Around - Radio Edit
