Track Name: Madison
When I express doubt
Everyone seems to come back
To the same, old pattern
Of watching me fall
Back down to rock bottom
It's the same, old problem
Of giving up on you

And maybe I'm too straight forward
Maybe I've lost my nerve
Maybe I'm over-reacting
But I know
This isn't right.

I'm not one to wait by my phone
Not one to wait for you to want me
Because my worth
Measures up to more
Than the people who might want me
Because I deserve more

It's time to break free from them
To deny them
And love yourself as you want to
Don't be afraid
'Cause no one will love you like you do.
Track Name: Wilson
Paragraphs explaining your confusion
but my feelings you disregard
Maybe I’m wrong to feel the way I do
but you convinced me to feel this way towards you

You’re sly and conniving.
I never asked for love,
I never wanted it.
But you fought to leave me hanging,
So you can fall back on your past.

I can’t have expectations,
as a result of being nice.
The only thought that keeps me moving is
"I’ve been through worse before".

You’re sly and conniving.
I never asked for love,
I never wanted it.
But you fought to leave me hanging,
So you can fall back on your past.
So you can fall back on your past.
But now we’re in the past,
Now we’re in the past.
But now we’re in the past,
Now we’re in the past.
Track Name: Damien
I think I finally found my voice
After the oppression of your scathing
And I put everything else before love
But I wouldn't call that a problem.
And I shouldn't have any of this
I know I don't deserve it
But I owe it to myself to try
I owe it to myself to try.

But maybe I am better off alone
I think I would do better on my own
You want me to feel the same as you do
But I can't express my feelings if they aren't true
I won't.

And everything's turning around...

But maybe I am better off alone
I think I would do better on my own
But maybe I am better off alone
I think I would do better on my own

And everything's turning around...
Track Name: Conor
Everyone says it's the same everywhere you go
Friends fantasize of living on the road
And though I would love to see it all
I'm only looking for a home.
But for now I feel displaced
And trapped in my own skin
As I look...
For it.

And blurred shades of green pass by my eyes
My feet on the dashboard
Our clothes hang dry
From the window
You rest your head
I could never get tired of this...

Become content with the fact that
Everything promised is a lie
And the rarity of everlasting love
Because the odds of it
Are slim.
Don't put your eggs in my basket.

And blurred shades of green pass by my eyes
My feet on the dashboard
Our clothes hang dry
From the window
You rest your head
I could never get tired of this...
Track Name: Jason
I held the world in my hands
Tracing maps with my pen
And where I've been
And what I've seen
Has led me to where I need to be
So let us stop to try to think
Of the distance between you and me
The lines were drawn
The spinning stopped
Our circumstance a road block...

But if we knew better we would talk it out
But we don't know better so we walk along
With no "hi" or "goodbye"
Our life a waste of time
A figment of the past long gone by
Gone by. Gone by.
Track Name: Spaulding
I thought I found you
Behind the faint smell of
Cigarette smoke and coffee.
Late nights at the cafe
Time moves on without me.
To her your guilt was too much.

You hate moving too fast
Still I’m moving too slow.
And a few weeks was enough
For this to unfold.
Can’t pretend to be tough
When we barely even talk.

Loveless nights seem close
Alone in my own arms.
Selfishness caught up to me
Can’t hide from my own faults.
But now we both can see
I care more than I let on.
Track Name: Emerson
You would throw it in my face
That this is only your bed
But I was the only one sleeping in it
Every night
And I started the summer
Desperate and sad
So I left to find myself in a car named Penelope
And we hit the road

There's so many better things
To see
When we're on the road alone
Oh, oh
People and their hospitality
Will make you come home
Feeling like your less alone
Oh, oh

"And we travel the world over to find the beautiful
But we must carry it with us
Or we find it not"

There's so many better things
To see
When we're on the road alone
Oh, oh
People and their hospitality
Will make you come home
Feeling like your less alone
Oh, oh
Track Name: Laura
Detached from your humanity
A nihilist, your favorite quality
There's distance I cannot seem to reach...
The better part of you brings out the worst in me
Your double, my identity
And through your eyes I see...

Look into the mirror
And you only see
Loss, a crutch, and co-dependency

Withering away at the depths of me
My hair, my nails they start to bleed
At one side of the mirror there's you
Then me
Staring back I seem to be...
The one who lost my own identity.
Track Name: Rosie
I started a new notebook
And in it I
started the new chapter
Of my life
Autobiographies
Fade with time
But not this time.

On Sundays we play Uno
With our favorite records on
Reverse, Skips, and Wildcards
Glad the summers done.
Getting away was all I need
Was all I need
Track Name: Nina
I was the new kid once
So I see myself in you
Blue hair, a tough girl attitude
Maybe that's why this hits so close to home

You said your father found another
Your dad can't get out of bed
He misses your mother

And I hope you know
That you deserve better
And I hope you know
That this is not your fault
To carry the world
On your little shoulders
But still you stand tall.

On the courts
Sitting at the sidelines
You said you don't have a mom
I asked if you're frightened
You said "sometimes I wonder
She's probably drunk or relapsed
Other times I think she's dead..."
And I watched your eyes
As you fell silent
Follow the sight of a vulture...

And I hope you know
That you deserve better
And I hope you know
That this is not your fault
To carry the world
On your little shoulders
But still you stand tall.

And I don't think that anyone has told you
But I'm proud of you.
