Track Name: The Holiday Song (For No Holiday in Particular)
Sometimes you find
Yourself alone
Wandering the streets
Nowhere to go
Maybe it's raining
Maybe you cry
Maybe this whole world's
Passing you by
But I don't mind
I don't care
I've got my own pain
Watching you here
And that's alright

Whether you come
Whether you go
Facing the hill
Taking it slow
Maybe you'll make it
Maybe you'll die
Maybe this whole world
Needs you to try
But I don't mind
I don't care
I got my own life
Watching you here
And that's alright

[instrumental break]

Sometimes you find
Yourself alone
Wandering the streets
Nowhere to go
Maybe you wonder
Maybe you see
Maybe together's
Where we should be
But I don't mind
I don't care
I got my own pain
Judging you here
And that's alright
Track Name: The Greatest Trainwreck
Here's to fashion
Here's to glorious mistrust
Here's to dedicating your life to bullshit so you can end up just like us

Here's to silence
Here's to living out your dreams
Here's to giving up all you believe in so you can find out what it means

It's the greatest train wreck
I don't know what I'm supposed to say
It's your final moment
I just hope that I can slip away
It's the price you pay

Here's to passion
Here's to staying til the end
Here's to drifting off into the cosmos so you can finally comprehend

Here's to boredom
Here's to jumping in the fire
Here's to the crumbling world that now surrounds us that people built up with desire
Track Name: And Here We Are (Again Maybe)
I don't know 'bout anything I can't see in my mind
I just hope that everything I can do will end up fine

And here we are...

I don't know 'bout anything I can't see in my dreams
I just hope that everything I can do is as it seems

And here we are...
Track Name: The Blues
Arrest yourself and do the time
I could buy your thoughts at the five and dime
This simple tale is a vast cliché
Of an average man in his perfect place

And now it seems like every chance
Is a chance that we should take
And all the people that we meet
Are the people you are sure to break

Explore your mind with a science eye
But neglect your heart as a fearful lie
This simple path is the path we choose
But we'll never know if we win or lose
Track Name: Snooze Bar
Alarm clock calls at 6am
She should be home by now
But I don't really care
Snooze bar...

She knows just how to call my name
To wake me up at night
I've had a shitty week
But I need to get some sleep
Snooze bar...

I can't get to sleep
3am in the morning
Birds chirp outside my window
Why are they still here?
Here...

She never saw me sleep this late
Before I learned to drink
I'm standing at the brink
And I don't know what to think
But then she rises above
But then she rises above
But then she rises above
To hit the snooze bar
Track Name: Time Was
Time was we'd think of time
Sit around the house and you have to wonder why
Time was we'd lie alone
Think about the life that we wish we coulda known

But we got a lot... ot... ot... to believe in
Yeah, we got a lot... ot... ot... to believe in
And that's just fine

Some days you lie around
Think about the life that you wish you coulda found
Some days you look ahead
Dream about the life that you hope you coulda led

But we got a lot... ot... ot... to believe in
Yeah, we got a lot... ot... ot... to believe in
And that's just fine

I'm misunderstood
I know I can't go on
My love's been strong
I that that we should move it along...
Oh...
