Track Name: Pacific Beach
They never tell ya how hard it is til you get here
I’m still finding my way
And maybe if I was back home I could tell ya
I’d still be searching in rain
It’s easier to stall
Easier to leave
But through the years, travel, and the pain
It’s never easy, no it’s never easy to stay

(I wanna live in Pacific Beach
Where everything feels okay
I will ride along this coast until I feel safe
And we will find our place
No matter how far apart
There is always a place to pick yourself up)

I will find myself making these lists
Before or after the wall
That I’ve hit, feels like a punch to your gut
You get kicked, now does it wake you up
And maybe if I was back home I could tell ya
I’d still be searching in rain
But through all the travel and the pain
It’s never easy, no, when they tell ya to stay

(Chorus)

And all the heavens fall to sleep where you now lay
They minute you take hold they’ll carry you back up
Back to where you belong no matter how long you’ve been drunk…

(Chorus)

I came here for a moment that I never got
A permanent vacation where no one tells you you’re wrong
You’re not sure if you’re right
And your string gets cut
And maybe if I was back home I could tell ya
But I’m at Nick’s trying to pick myself up
Track Name: Waste Nation
I miss the days when MTV used to play
Videos and punk sold out
Just the days to ourselves
Ren & Stimpy and now
We wear suites but we still
Live in the cartoon idiot screams
And lifestyle magazines

(Waste Nation, come and bail me out
Waste Nation, I think I’ve fallen in
Waste Nation, come and bail me out
Waste Nation, for those know how to fit in)

And he says it’s in sin
Yea, you de-evolve in a world
Where everyone is a star
Just an east coast kid living in a west coast world
Will he ever wake up? Will he ever know?
And they’ll never win
No they’ll never win

(Chorus)

come and bail, come and bail me out !!
I am the tendencies un-acted upon
Memories that faded
And I still believe I bleed
I still believe I bleed
[it’s not what the kids want, it’s not what the kids want]

(Chorus)

Come and bail, come and bail me out !!
[I think I’ve fallen in]
Track Name: Seattle Day
Emily lays in bed, stares at the screen
At all the places she’s never been
This pillow it can’t replace a person
She’s always searching, always waiting
She don’t believe in religion
Says it don’t matter what you believe in
Just as you belong in something
We’re all incomplete according to our gods
We’re not sure who we even are

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh And they’re hoping for better weather
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, And they’re hoping things get better
I’m under the skyline and I feel so alive…

Across the windowpane
Another Seattle day
Too many ways to say goodbye
But oh, to begin
Too many pull the blinds
Outside looking in she knows
They’re just wasting their time

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh And they’re hoping for better weather
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, And they’re hoping things get better
I’m under the skyline and I feel so alive…
Track Name: Boomerang
Walking as a shadow
Forgot he had his own
Got fenced into the weeds
They tell ya you’re too stubborn
Saw the world won’t you come back
You’re searching miles before your feet

(Sometimes you can’t
You just can’t believe
It’s hard to see
Outside the life of your dreams
Boomerang you are stalled
Out just spinning around
Spinning around)

Sometimes he jumps
Before it’s safe to land
Volatile and young
He’s a boomerang
Yea, and you are no different
When your country starts from scratch
It takes another angle, Takes a balancing act

(Chorus)

[Don’t fall back down because you’re further than the rest of them
You’re anchored down but you will come back out greater than
Don’t stop believing ‘cause the pressure can’t hold you down]

You’ll boomerang…
Track Name: Broken
I hold tight all of these aspirations
You liberate all of my inspiration
Nervous from all of the time spent chasing
I sing strong arms to wrap around the thorns

(I know that love’s a cure for the broken man
These punches we take I won’t let ‘em break ourselves
Come like a saint and fix me as best you can
These punches we take I won’t let ‘em break ourselves)

In a faith we never speak aloud
Once reserved my head is open now
You float in and out of reach, I’d ditch these stubborn habits
I call strong arms to wrap around

(Chorus)

And if we should slip
We’ll tie these loose ends
And choke all the fears that cloud our heavy minds
I am the addict stuck deep in the code
To find nobody ever gets it, ever gets it

(Chorus)

These punches we take I won’t let ‘em break me
No I won’t let ‘em break me, break me
Track Name: This Is Not Me
This is not me
I am not here
I haven’t been around
Or maybe I woke up
Finally took a breathe
And walked away from it all
But I still feel
A faint but lonely ringing
That’ll never go away
And I’ll be here
Living in my own state of mind
And I won’t let you in

This open heart I’ve tried to keep free
But they killed it and it’s killing me…

This is not me
No this is not me
What tune am I singing?
These melodies in shallow company
I love them all like family
But I cannot stay here
I run from all my thoughts
And aggravations kicking in
And I’ll be here
Living in my own state of mind
And I won’t let you in

This open heart I’ve tried to keep free
But they killed it and it’s killing me
These melodies nobody ever keeps
So lonely

They’re so lonely so lonely
They’re so lonely
Track Name: Joe Cool
Joe Cool burned all his suites an ties passion
Starting over in his life
Spends all his time trying to get it right
He gets wasted every night
Joe Cool kicks back off to the sidelines
Watch the wheel spin
People talk in double life
Free advice from those who keep on trying
At the bar stool in the streets
They sell their rights

In summer weather
Everything is fine
Combed over / shaved right
Catalyze a sleeping night
Where dreams are held tight
He don’t know what it means
To take a chance !

Wah Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Wah Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Joe Cool burns all his energy
Just to feel so damn empty

In summer weather
Everything is fine
Combed over / shaved right
Catalyze a sleeping night
Where dreams are held tight
Relaxed time unwinds
A better chance he’ll find

To take a chance
Wah Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Wah Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh…
Track Name: N49
And they make you believe that you’re free
Just another night in the city
Took the 49 back to Chelsea
As you stand and wait for the lights
Turn strangers into friends
Do you get a second chance?

(I always wondered why they called it ‘World’s End’
I never rode it that far
Just take me back to where I belong
I never worried ‘bout the people causing trouble
They never know where they are
Just take me back to where I belong)

Do you feel like just a number?
She asked me down at the pubs
I walk pavement in the dark
Never really sure where I’ll end up
As you stand and wait for the lights
Check on your phone again
Do you get a second chance?

(Chorus)
