Track Name: Know Me
Let me tell you why I'm standing here today
'Cuase I've got something to say.

That I'm here with a purpose;
I'm gonna make it all worth it.

I feel it in my bones.
I think I'm getting close.
And even through the tears and sweat I still bleed.
I swear when I come back you'll all know me.

I'm getting sick of hearing "no".
It's my life, I'll say what goes.

I'm here with a purpose;
I'm gonna make it all worth it.

I feel it in my bones.
I think I'm getting close.
And even through the tears and sweat I still bleed.
I swear when I come back you'll all know me.

(I feel it in my bones.
I think I'm getting close.)

I feel it in my bones.
I know I'm getting close.
Track Name: Lotus Flower
You brought another girl home right out from the streets.
She's just like another, but you still say you love her.
She won't even acknowledge that I exist.
I keep a closed fist while you two both kiss.

She's got you in the palm of her hand.
Her grip is tighter than the noose that should be on your neck.
I've come to terms that it's not over
And it may never end.

I'll try to save you, but I don't think it would work.
She's like a lotus flower, she's got hypnotic powers.
And all the while I'll watch you vanish, disappear.
I need you right here so you could be near.

She's got you in the palm of her hand.
Her grip is tighter than the noose that should be on your neck.
I've come to terms that it's not over
And it may never end.

I know you all too well.
You'll break this vicious spell.
You'll get our family out of this hell.

She's got you in the palm of her hand.
Her grip is tighter than the noose that should be on your neck.
I've come to terms that it's not over
And it may never end.
Track Name: One More Summer
22 came faster than expected.
I never messed around and now I regret it.
I wish I savored months that I took for granted.
I better hurry up, I'm running out of chances.

I miss those carefree nights when we hung out wherever
And never thought about planning for September.
Why can't these moments last forever?
All I'm asking for is one more summer.

You don't know what you got 'til it's gone.
Who knew growing up would be so hard?

I miss those carefree nights when we hung out wherever
And never thought about planning for September.
Why can't these moments last forever?
All I'm asking for is one more summer.

I just want to make sure I'm driving on the right route
'Cause I don't know what to do, my mind is clouded with doubt.
I know I'm running out of time, I need a larger amount.
You can't count the days, you gotta make the days count.

I miss those carefree nights when we hung out wherever
And never thought about planning for September.
Why can't these moments last forever?
All I'm asking for is one more summer.
Track Name: Suck Me, Beautiful
I'm tired of staring up at my bedroom ceiling and thinking about all of the stupid shit I've done. I'm tired of staring at my phone and waiting, just waiting, for you to text me back sometime. I know I'm not your ideal guy, but I will leave it up to you to make the final conscious move. No words can swoon you in my arms, but I'll talk on and on and pray that I do no wrong. I don't think you realize what you do to me. I never sleep cuz you kill my dreams. You make my lungs freeze causing exhales to deplete. I barely could speak with my tongue in my cheek so I will leave it up to you to make the final conscious move. No words can swoon you in my arms, but I'll talk on and on and pray that I do no wrong. I will leave it up to you to make the final conscious move. No words can swoon you in my arms, but I'll talk on and on and pray that I do no wrong. I will leave it up to you to make the final conscious move. No words can swoon you in my arms, but I'll talk on and on and pray that I do no wrong.
Track Name: How It Goes
I sit at home all alone
Waiting for something to happen.
I've checked my phone ten thousand times or so
Hoping that someone would reach me.

Hoping that someone would need me.

I'm the one that you realize missing from the party
And when you ask where I am no one knows.
(It's how it goes)

I can't be wild and free
'Cuase I'm scared of what might happen.
I can't believe you'd do this to me
After all we've been through.

Am I just someone that you sit next to?

I'm the one that you realize missing from the party
And when you ask where I am no one knows.
(It's how it goes)

I'm the one that never seems to be around.
It's like I'm living underground like it's what I chose.
(It's how it goes)

(It's how it goes)
(It's how it goes)
Track Name: Map
I was driving back down Cranbury where we went that time. It was the best night of our lives // I had said some things I didn't mean. I was hoping it was just a bad dream // I got this feeling in my gut it makes me sick. Makes me wonder if it was really worth it. It wasn't pity that brought me back. I'm so lost without you that I need a map // I was hanging out with your brother. He said that you're fine, but we both know that's a lie // You had did some things you didn't mean. I was hoping it was just a bad dream // I got this feeling in my gut it makes me sick. Makes me wonder if it was really worth it. It wasn't pity that brought me back. I'm so lost without you that I need a map // I got this feeling in my gut it makes me sick. Makes me wonder if it was really worth it. It wasn't pity that brought me back. I'm so lost without you that I need a map // I got this feeling in my gut it makes me sick. Makes me wonder if it was really worth it. It wasn't pity that brought me back. I'm so lost without you that I need a map //
Track Name: Make Me Even
Whenever I think of you I start to get real nervous. Maybe I'll see you around. I try to cause coincidence on purpose // Maybe I found my one reason to be alive. Make me even // You caught me on a day when I didn't dress nice, my breathe smelled bad, and I didn't shave. But you still talked to me. I didn't know what to say // Maybe I found my one reason to be alive. Make me even // I'm tired of sitting around and wondering if you think of me. All I'm asking for is one day with you so you could see // Maybe I found my one reason to be alive. Make me even // (I've been odd my whole life) Make me even. (I've been odd my whole life) Make me even // I hope I don't come off too weird. This is all I know how to do. But we could have some fun. I'll even make you scrambled eggs, too.
Track Name: 4 Weeks
You are a menacing little crook
Even though you didn't notice what you took:
My heart and my lungs.
I guess organ doning's better when you're young.

And though I know I'm missing crucial pieces
I know you'd be the one to complete it.
I'm swiss cheese, a whistled breeze.
You can tell my nerves by my shaky knees.

We've only got 4 weeks until you graduate;
Until I come back home for summer break.
And if this is what I think it is,
Then we better make the best of this.

I hope that I might walk by you today,
When I'm with you I just feel so great.
Try to figure out what I'd say to you next time.
I'll ask how you were and you will say "fine".

Now I know that I'm starting to get weird about this,
But we both know you always had advantage.
I freeze when we meet.
I'll just sit in that crummy, little corner seat.

We've only got 4 weeks until you graduate;
Until I come back home for summer break.
And if this is what I think it is,
Then we better make the best of this.
Track Name: Homecoming
It's a long drive home from last semester. I can only hope that next one will be better. Happy to be gone from all of the pressure. I'll just look out the window and try to forget her. The nostalgia finally hits when I see the things that I missed. It never felt so good to stare at my bedroom ceiling like this // I'll sit on the bleachers of the homecoming game and see all my high school friends who don't know my name. I'll watch all the girls who used to think I was lame. Everything's different, but nothing has changed // I'd say it's great to be back home, but I'd much rather be left alone. People looking for answers I don't know. I've grown up to see that we mean nothing. Memories can't last forever, so you know that they're worth something // Maybe I'm worth something // I'll sit on the bleachers of the homecoming game and see all my high school friends who don't know my name. I'll watch all the girls who used to think I was lame. Everything's different, but nothing has changed // I'm spending most nights out in the black walking in circles in my cul de sac counting down the days that I have left before I'm sent back. This winter's the coldest of them all. Perfectly frozen in my fall, down; down fall // I feel so down // I'll sit on the bleachers of the homecoming game and see all my high school friends who don't know my name. I'll watch all the girls who used to think I was lame. Everything's different, but nothing has changed //
