Track Name: Gordon & Pearl
Just another normal Sunday
That turned into such a nightmare
When we saw him laying on the floor
Puke surrounding his bed
I spent a lot of time with him
You’d think I would have noticed
We thought we were his friends
We thought he felt the same but
We had it wrong
We had it wrong

YOU LEFT ME FEELING LIKE WE’VE MADE A MISTAKE
WE NEVER WANTED YOU TO FEEL LIKE YOU HAD NOBODY
WE THOUGHT THAT NOTHING WAS WRONG
WE’LL NEVER FORGET THAT SUNDAY ON GORDON AND PEARL

He never talked to us
He never told us that he
Wasn’t happy anymore
That we should have listened more
You shouldn’t turn your back on us
You cant remove the hurt that you caused
I guess the hardest part was cause
He said that he had no friends but
He had it wrong
He had it wrong

YOU LEFT ME FEELING LIKE WE’VE MADE A MISTAKE
WE NEVER WANTED YOU TO FEEL LIKE YOU HAD NOBODY
WE THOUGHT THAT NOTHING WAS WRONG
WE’LL NEVER FORGET THAT SUNDAY ON GORDON AND PEARL

Its such an awful feeling that builds up inside
When one of your friends wishes that he would die
He thought nobody loved him and he never tried to
Reach out to us, to tell us how he felt inside

YOU LEFT ME FEELING LIKE WE’VE MADE A MISTAKE
WE NEVER WANTED YOU TO FEEL LIKE YOU HAD NOBODY
WE THOUGHT THAT NOTHING WAS WRONG
WE’LL NEVER FORGET THAT SUNDAY ON GORDON AND PEARL
Track Name: Bound To Sink
Although I have my friends and have my family
I've never felt more alone, It's built up inside of me
I smile and I laugh so no one has to see
That there's no way that they will ever understand me
But I know that you wont
You don’t know anything about me
And I don’t expect you to
You don’t know anything about me
SO WHAT IS IT YOU'RE SEEING
WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING STRAIGHT AT ME
I CANT EVEN STOP TO THINK
BECAUSE MY HEART IS BOUND TO SINK
ALL THESE THOUGHTS IN MY HEAD
SLOWLY ROT AND INFEST
I CANT BEGIN TO DIGRESS
CAUSE THIS MESS IS DIRTIER THAN YOU THINK
My ship has a torn sail
And a broken rudder
I'm not quite the Bismark
But I've been better
SO WHAT IS IT YOU'RE SEEING
WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING STRAIGHT AT ME
I CANT EVEN STOP TO THINK
BECAUSE MY HEART IS BOUND TO SINK
ALL THESE THOUGHTS IN MY HEAD
SLOWLY ROT AND INFEST
I CANT BEGIN TO DIGRESS
CAUSE THIS MESS IS DIRTIER THAN YOU THINK
THAN IT SHOULD EVER BE
IT SAYS THAT I WILL NEVER LEAVE
IT SAYS THAT RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME
IT SAYS THAT RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME
So when you see me walking underneath your streetlights
Just remember that I'm not as happy as you think I am
(I'm living a dead end)
I'm living a dead end
You see, you'll never have to know
I'm two steps from failure
And it wont ever have to show
You will never have to know
How I feel inside
I'm living a lie
WHAT DO YOU SEE
YOU LOOK AT ME
AND ALL THESE THOUGHTS IN MY HEAD
THEY SLOWLY ROT AND INFEST
AND I CANT CLEAN UP THIS MESS
ITS DIRTIER THAN YOU.
Track Name: State Lines
She goes by the book
But I scribble outside the lines
I'll never have her cause she's out of my state lines
I can recite
But she'd never respond
She's The perfect soundtrack
But the volume's off
A shaky heart and sweaty palms
A phone call "don't do this to me"
I remember our last date
It's an awkward feeling knowing that was going to be the last night
I slept by your side
You left me hanging dry
in a unfamiliar place
A tear filled face
A tattered Soaking pillowcase
From all the years of tears
From the absence of you here
I used to want to grow old with you
Now I'm old and all I want to do
Is go back to when we were young and new
You used to tell me everything
But now you act like I'm not listening
But I still hear you (I still hear you)
What were you running from
You're just a heartbreaker
and you know it
I’m not the only one
that you've torn apart
I was just the start of it all
Love is your downfall
Breaking every wing
you can use to fly to me
So fall
Fall away
So fall
I used to want to grow old with you
now I'm old and all I want to do
Is go back to when we were young and new
You used to tell me everything
But now you act like I'm not listening
But I still hear you (I still hear you)
I still hear you
When we were young
Our days weren't numbered
You're number one
And I'm outnumbered
We can't re-live
All that I have missed and wasted
I'm feeling broke and underrated
I don't think you know it's hurting me
Everyday
You hurt me
I used to want to grow old with you
Now I'm old and all I want to do
Is go back to when we were young and new
You used to tell me everything
But now you act like I'm not listening
But I still hear you
I used to want to grow old with you
Now I'm old and all I want to do
Is go back to when we were young and new
You used to tell me everything
But now you act like I'm not listening
But I still hear you
I still hear you.
Track Name: You Win Some, You Lose Some
I'm not happy any more
Since you did leave
I'm not scared anymore
Of the beach
But you left me alone
And defeated
Im scared but im not
Underneath it

I don’t feel alone anymore
Since you did leave
These feelings were deep inside me
And now so empty

But I left you
In the dust
And now youre alone the most
Out of the two of us
But im sorry
Im not sorry
im not sorry
That you left me
Track Name: Walls
I know I'm nothing but I'm feeling free
For the first time I can see clearly again
Finally know how to trust again
It's been five years since she left
But my abandonment has brought me straight to you
They say everything happens for a reason and I hate it but its true
cause I got you
These are my walls
Didn’t know it could feel this good again
These are my walls
We can tear them brick by brick
A slow but surely better end
You're the only one I let inside
Since the last time that I died
A painful shot straight through the heart
Semi-permanently injured
But you repaired me
You took control of me
Showed me how to love again
Showed me how to not pretend
These are my walls
Didn’t know it could feel this good again
These are my walls
We can tear them brick by brick
A slow but surely better end
These are my walls
Didn’t know it could feel this good again
These are my walls
We can tear them brick by brick
A slow but surely better end
I hope you can finally see
What you mean to me
I hope you know I'll never leave
It’s a lot for me
This was meant to be
These are my walls though
They were never meant to show
We can tear them brick by brick, crash to the floor
And so, promise you wont ever go
Trust me ive had enough of that for the both of us to know
The Both of us to know
Track Name: The Reckless Ones
Living my life in reverse
Maturity has showed me the way
I want to live my life
I need to live my life, I was
Force-fed to think like this
We should live with caution and not be reckless
We are the reckless ones
and this year will make us
So when we're gone don’t forget me
You can bet we'll be lonely
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THOSE NIGHTS
WE USED TO SPEND WITH OUR FRIENDS
THEY'RE GONE AND THEY'RE NEVER COMING BACK AGAIN
SOMEHOW I KNOW WE'LL MAKE IT OUT ALIVE
SO LONG, GOODBYE
I could never go on not knowing
What could have become
This year we're gonna do it right
Nobody can tell us different
We're doing it our way
It's our way and they will see
We are the reckless one
And this year will make us
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THOSE NIGHTS
WE USED TO SPEND WITH OUR FRIENDS
THEY'RE GONE AND THEY'RE NEVER COMING BACK AGAIN
SOMEHOW I KNOW WE'LL MAKE IT OUT ALIVE
SO LONG, GOODBYE
If we never go then we will never know
This is our biggest risk and we cant miss it
If we never go then we will never know
This is our biggest risk
You know that it’s the right think to do
Because no one is making you
I put so much aside just hoping for this
We'll put in blood, sweat, and tears and never give up our faith
They say persistence is the key to success
I've spent the past twenty-five years just trying to figure out this
It's not over
Until this cold summer ends
And we'll make it on our own
And we'll come back as bigger men
