Deep Dive 03:33
Nowhere in the world Could ever get me close Nowhere in the world Could ever feel like home After tonight I can’t tell how we’ll ever be all right After tonight Moonlight I got nowhere to go Fast drive like I’m out of control Fly high and I’m over the coast Like I’m ready to deep dive Think fast I’m in over my head Lose track I don’t know what I said Fall back like I’m hoping again Fall back like I’m hoping again Nowhere in the world Could ever get me close To you Nothing that I do Could ever turn you on It’s true After today I don’t know if we’ll ever be okay After today Moonlight I got nowhere to go Fast drive like I’m out of control Fly high and I’m over the coast Like I’m ready to deep dive Think fast I’m in over my head Lose track I don’t know what I said Fall back like I’m hoping again Fall back like I’m hoping again Moonlight I got nowhere to go Fast drive like I’m out of control Fly high and I’m over the coast Think fast I’m in over my head Lose track I don’t know what I said Fall back like I’m fifteen again Big plan never ran out of luck Boomerang undercover attack Sharp fang never knew that I got This time it’s inevitable Take life set a date and elope Deep dive with a dream and a goal Deep dive like I’m ready to go

Arithmetics 02:54
I used to write with my hand down Looked around, this is not an outlet Oh indisposed as I’d close my eyes And I’d take off in a rocket I read between the lines I’d like to find It’s nothing but a lie A wile A ploy An illusion of a choice A voice There never was a man who’s not a boy A man who’s not a boy Arithmetics aside It’s like this life Is stepping out of line To let me know That I’m not in command And then that nobody could ever understand (Nobody, nobody else) Why do I think I’m old at twenty-one? ‘Cause a month from now I’ll be twenty-three Now we can only sit back Lucky that we’ve got Christmas coming early There’s so much on my mind In time I might Begin to realize all this is why I never got a chance to thank These lies on which it’s madness to depend It’s madness to depend Arithmetics aside It’s like this life Is stepping out of line To let me know That I’m not in command And then that nobody could ever understand (Nobody, nobody else) Yeah arithmetics aside It’s like this life Is lacking in surprise It’s time to strike There’s order in the pack Attack This kind of courage isn’t coming back Back now This kind of courage isn’t coming back Back now This kind of courage isn’t coming back Back now This kind of courage isn’t coming back Back now This kind of courage isn’t coming back Back now This kind of courage isn’t coming back

Growing Up 04:03
You wanna be a friend of mine? Great things take just a little time Yeah I can hear it in the pouring rain Sun’s coming up with a killer game How’s about we set the bar high? Get set play safe in another life There’s nothing in a memory Say what if you make one with me? We never stop growing up We’re just bigger kids on a bigger block Let’s start calling each other names Tonight is a night for the hall of fame Oh summer’s always had a way Growin’ us years in a single day Play me a song from a life ago I’ll show you a boy I don’t even know Tell me stories of the lives you never knew And I guess we’ll make ‘em ours too Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh It’s too late Too dark Do stay till dawn Can you take a polaroid? We look so good on the celluloid Never been this kind of guy I look so cool when my horse is high Let’s not worry for a minute more Twenty-first-century troubadours Everybody’s gonna have a thing to say From the bleachers anyway Tell me stories of the life you’re wanted for And I guess we’ll take it on Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh It’s too late Too dark Today To start again and await to fade Into nowhere Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Still 04:02
I said tonight Don’t let it break you down and cry But seeing as everybody’s fine Is it me that I’m really talking about? Didn’t let it get to me till now But seeing as everybody’s fine When can I get my chance to try? I said for days I would never really need to face it But seeing as everybody’s fine Now’s the time to let it all out I said I’m still calling out your name Turns out what you did to my brain Is still making me afraid To begin life again I’ll sleep tonight Living by the only creed I have But seeing as everybody’s fine Closing in when I stand aside You’re still so gray Still keeping me from being brave But seeing as everybody’s fine Help me up and I’ll bring you down And I said too well I would never need to face myself But seeing as everybody’s fine Now’s as good a time as any I’m still calling out your name Turns out what you did to my brain Is still making me afraid To begin life again I’m still calling out your name Turns out what you did to my brain Is still making me afraid To begin life again

Your heart is beating with love I hope it’s only that you keep it low key Lay down your bad emotions for sure Throw ‘em back in and out of the picture I’m in such physical pain Oh baby let me take a listen again Your heart is beating with love And love is likely to render it offbeat Talala ta talala talala Talala ta talala talala The candle fading is just an indication Of what’s gonna happen Lay down your heart let silence occur This is us in a silent picture Time is not critical here I’ll never say stop it and I’ll never interfere The candle fading was just an indication Of what was a given This is high Over life Over life Talala ta talala talala Talala ta talala talala Your heart is beating with love And lost completely, it’s synchronicity Lay down your planned instructions for sure Throw ‘em back in and out of the picture Dawn is not possible in That world that we’ll never jettison Your heart is beating with love It’s beating with love I can see for miles now Filtered with your eyes I’ve never said stop it And I doubt I’ll ever try You can feel my heartbeat Speaking in a soft breeze I’m becoming lighter than I already am Talala ta talala talala Talala ta talala talala

Underneath the plane in the rain She gets her way in mother nature’s jungle gym To get me out in the wild You gotta take me where she makes her medicine A right to love is enough My roots are tangled I’ve been mangled from within My hopes, my luck, and her touch Forever changed the way she may just be my kin When the solace of the night Lays her body close to mine It’s a bed above my soul She shook the world with such a style Let her body testify Did you hear about the woman from the jungle breaking out? Come in, come out of the wild They say to charm you can’t disarm your craftiness To patronize is unwise She comes from places where the maze is her defense I’ll make my way and I’ll pray I can seduce one so recluse considering We’re all the same and mundane But I believe in this heathen chemistry When the solace of the night Lays her body close to mine It’s a bed above my soul She shook the world with such a style Let her body testify Did you hear about the woman from the jungle breaking out? Keep it up it goes to show She’s the best thing that I know And the one place worth to go She shook the world with such a style Let her body testify Did you hear about the woman from the jungle breaking out?

Time & Place 05:19
You are all along the only one I’ve been dreaming of You disappear in a corridor like you wanna wake me up I don’t wanna fall back baby just know this I’ve never kept a dream alive Never let me go goddamnit I mean it ‘Cause you’re the best I’ve ever had This is neither the time nor the place for the feeling that you’re making mine As you come on like a wave I’m a slave to the second that you kill the lights This is neither the time nor the place for the feeling that you’re making mine Oooh I don’t ever wanna wake I don’t ever wanna phase in the night You are all along the only one I tell you secrets that are true so you can tell I’m a mess I hope I haven’t seen the last of you slipping in that blossom dress No, I’m not a fool now baby I know this isn’t something we can sustain But I wanna choose now baby if I may To disappear into your hands This is neither the time nor the place for the feeling that you’re making mine As you come on like a wave I’m a slave to the second that you kill the lights This is neither the time nor the place for the feeling that you’re making mine Oooh I don’t ever wanna wake I don’t ever wanna phase in the night There’s things that I don’t understand (Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh) That everybody’s so sure of (Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh) Yet I don’t think I give a damn (Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh) ‘Cause there’s one thing that I’m so sure of (Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh) Oh and things that I don’t understand (Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh) That everybody’s so sure of (Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh) Yet I don’t think I give a damn (Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh) ‘Cause you’re the one thing that I’m so sure of (Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Wallflowers 03:56
I’m not a fan of these happenings But everybody told me to go Your friends have told you the same I’ll bet It’s time for you to take it slow This is the dance of the idiots I’ll never make it out on my own I need somebody to relate with I need somebody closer to home And I see it Gotta dream it to believe it It’s the world against us both And we’re standing and we’re staring It’s electric, it’s our home Like we’re keeping a secret With the flowers on the wall It’s the world against us all I came in looking for my way out Yes I can tell we’re one and the same We may not find it alone this time ‘Cause I can tell you share my pain I see us taking a walk outside And try to think of something to do Under the flicker of our own light We're dancing to whatever we choose And I see it Color coated in writing It’s the world against us both Undecided come Friday We’ll be riders on the storm And we’re destined to the best thing That the world has ever known We’re the flowers on the wall And we’re standing and we’re staring It’s electric, it’s our home Like we’re keeping a secret With the flowers on the wall And I see it color coated It’s the world against us both Undecided come Friday We’ll be flowers on the wall It’s the world against us all

Reasons 02:52
It would be best If we met at the park Yeah ‘cause baby I don’t Really hang at the bar And I could tell you the reasons why I’m as lonely as you are I don’t like holding hands Talking to you is hard Yeah I’m out of a plan And I’m out of a job But I could tell you the reasons why I think that you would like me So let me walk you to the start Pretend I know who you are When clearly I don’t but I can tell we’d open strong I don’t like to be teased You don’t like to be hurt I don’t like to be touched But you can open my shirt Yeah let me tell you the reasons why I think that you should kiss me I could give you the moon But I think you’d suspect It’s not really the moon It’s a circle I sketched And I could tell you the reasons why I think you’d like it anyway Let me walk you to the start Pretend I know who you are When clearly I don’t but I can tell we’d open strong Let me walk you to the stars Pretend I know who you are When clearly I don’t but I can tell we’d open strong
10.
In the Town 02:58
Ten AM time for the bells Your secret’s safe with everybody else And like a message in the sky Oh in the middle of the night This quiet bed was made for you Oh in the town where nobody liked the truth Try again this time with a plan A second to save an innocent man Oh and the field was open wide With no one else in sight But now was always just too soon Oh in the town where nobody cut the noose And then the fire came to play With no one in the way Peace is a name etched on a grave Oh in the town In the town Nobody came to save
11.
Forever Ago 05:21
The timing isn’t fitting at all No way to get around The change in everybody I know I’m a stranger in my town Don’t try to pull me by the string of my heart Oh, baby, that’s a game that you don’t wanna start I think I’m done with having something to say I’ll go and keep my feelings in and out of your way Oh the poison of time is lethal One name two different people Baby, you feel like forever ago (Forever ago) Baby, you feel like forever ago Trying to make up something to miss Something to remember I can’t figure out the moment I did Something that matters Oh a memory's a reason to hold It’s only in my head and it’s ready to blow I know you like me better when I’m away But this is not a life, this is another day All kinds of different heroes We’ll never be any of those Baby, you feel like forever ago Don’t ever matter what you say if you don’t know Time, you forget, is a runaway Yeah you feel like (Forever Ago) Baby, you feel like forever ago You feel like forever ago now Yeah you feel like forever ago now Yeah you feel like forever ago now Oh yes you feel like forever ago now Now Feels like forever ago now (Forever Ago) Baby, you feel like forever ago Feels like forever ago now (Forever Ago) Baby, you feel like forever ago Feels like forever ago now (Forever Ago) Baby, you feel like forever ago Feels like forever ago now (Forever Ago) Baby, you feel like forever ago
