Track Name: Ship Sails
I'm holding on to my view of the world
But it's not closer now, closer now

No one thinks that they'll stay exactly the same
But it's just like my father said
Everyone sells a little truth

Go the way of the farthest sea
But I can't just let it go

I'm holding on to my view of the world
But it's not closer now, closer now
Track Name: Take It Back
Take it back those things you missed now that you're not with anyone
I tried hard to get it back, those days that I spent wondering
Tight rope walking shouldn't be this hard when no ones crowding your space
So I just sat and let the quiet put everything in place

Here it goes

Take it back those things you left behind when you were a little spore
Rebel kids are outside my door just trying to find who they wanna be

I know you left when you found someone else
It turned my view so upside down
Now it's hard to know when I'm in the clear
Your words, they never left

Here it goes

I could turn the lights on
Tell you what gets to me
But all of these words are cheap
When you don't even hear me
Track Name: Out of Nowhere
Take me out back again
Shoot the remains of what I wanted
Heading around the bend
That wall came up without no warning
Sometimes someone else will help to take the pain away
If you're ready to just give up a new mistake
Feeling heavy hearted never took my breath away
My arms are burning with the thought of what you have to say

I need some plans tonight
Curse yourself with your own blessing
When everything you trust turns out to be just your own shadow
This is the 5th time I've lost all my self respect

It's alright
And it's alright
It's alright
And it's not alright

I'm holding off
I'm holding off
I'm holding off on this

Take me out back again
Shoot the remains of what I wanted
When everything you trust turns out to be just your own shadow
I'm a saint but all my efforts seem to feel so hollow
Track Name: Perfectly Normal
We're not worthy and you don't wanna know
All the things we do and places that we go

So what, I could never get there
And I, couldn't even care
We are, who you never talk to
And I, seem to like it here

So it goes, you wanna start a fight?
I will lose but that won't make you right

And I will never be there

We're not worthy cause we're not in a scene
I know no one but you all can know me

So what, I could never get there
And I, couldn't even care
We are, who you never talk to
And I, seem to like it here

So it goes, you wanna start a fight?
I will lose but that won't make you right

Step back and let it all go
We are stuck at all these shows
But that's the way it is
You know? you know? you know?

We're not the status quo
I'm stuck but don't know where to go
This is not my home
You know? you know? you know?

Take me for who I am
I'm not a list that you go down
To see if I fit the bill
You know? you know? you know?

There's not a normal plan
When you just take off your clothes
And you start to sing
You know? you know? you know?

So it goes, you wanna start a fight?
I will lose but that won't make you right

And I will never be there
Never be
Track Name: (Out of) Retirement
I was alone and I saw the end
But I didn't try to do a thing
When there's a light out in the sky
You just watch, hope you don't die

The bridge was stacked
With paper bags
And I hope that I go straight up with the smoke

I was alone and I saw the flame
That spoke the truth right to my veins

I believe that they won't change a thing
But I gotta let them try
Hold your own on the brink of death I said
And I know you'll try

God help this man who lives away from everything
God takes his time for everyone and everything
It all ends tonight for everyone and everything
Start taking sides for everyone and everything
It all ends tonight for everyone and everything
Track Name: Come One, Come All
It wasn't a home anymore after all you stole
Advice isn't worth a damn when it's coming from below

I came from the ward and they want you dead
A thought is alive when it's in your head
I tried to get out but it's what you said

So go to the prison, listen to the walls
The things they say aren't so far off
We were all put here for no reason at all
And they were all singing "Come one, Come all"

I came from the ward and they want you dead
A thought is alive when it's in your head
I tried to get out but it's what you said
