Track Name: Particle Board
Tomorrow I might wake
in an unfamiliar place
I've seen it before
but never wanted to say its name
it's hard to let slip by and easy to slip away
some mistakes you can't blame on your brain
but you can't stand on hope
and not all ashes blow away

when my heart thumps like this it makes my whole body move

Thank you all for helping me
be the best basket case
I knew I could be
and before all the clarity we just sat
holding hands silently
waiting for it all to get real
for the skin to peel
we're 2 gun slingers
we know the deal
in a perfect world the floor would light up with ever step when we dance

when my heart thumps like this it makes my whole body move

chasing what you want, like facing it's as good as what you got...this world ain't nothing but particle board

when my heart thumps like this it makes my whole body move
Track Name: Orbiting
If my voice, can't climb up to your ears
would you come down here just to hear

Orbiting is just what it is
it ain't nothing but an endless circle around something else that's big
and I'm waiting for time that you can touch the ground and this will end

If my voice, can't climb up to your ears
would you come down here just to hear
Track Name: Born against
And I disappeared with the memory of her
just like a river does to leave,
just like a mouth does to words
energy makes heat makes love makes pain so why not
I'm blatantly believing the boredom's just a sickness we both got

I'm born against the grain again
even these events you say they'll make me man

lovely long winded candle light surprise,
stolen from the nest, eggshells solidify
the sun shines on the lakebed and it cracks the skin
wishing the water could come back
but we all know where it went

I'm born against the grain again
even these events you say they'll make me man

you see I'm thirst for poison and the right to grow old
I'm existing through legend and exhausting the mold
my hot chocolate friend you got nothing left but whip cream on your nose

I'm born against the grain again
even these events you say they'll make me man
Track Name: Dirty Boys
In all dirty boys defense, we're more than just torn jeans and tears
we don't need as much help as we're gonna take
and through all the words of hate and the much needed pain
that's how this city's gonna break
and a moment of beauty is made

till we let it all stop... it's the only way
as your jaw just dropped
standing on the muddy banks of something great

even bad beginnings on the wrong dirty foot
hold so much weight on the scale between evil and good
summertime's just a mystery to me in all this cold and fog
I know I could smile or I could love a little bit more but hey
couldn't we all
now I'm feeling as bad as the art on these college town walls

till we let it all stop... it's the only way
as your jaw just dropped
standing on the muddy banks of something great

now we're jumping out of windows honey you'd think its a ride at the fair
I hope you're all paying close attention
even though you told me it's not your job to care

till we let it all stop... it's the only way
as your jaw just dropped
standing on the muddy banks of something great
Track Name: ankle deep
every time I sit ankle deep
watching wave after wave leave
sometimes I get so afraid to move my feet, so I sink
now I'm up to my knees

now the sun done come up again... it just does this all the time
such a valuable lesson's hard to see
when it's so big and bright

every time I sit ankle deep
watching wave after wave leave
sometimes I get so afraid to move my feet, so I sink
now I'm up to my knees

So put your hands on the screen and cry with me cuz I can feel it
I can taste it
we can win this thing
everytime
