Track Name: Hot Tubs Don't Just Walk Away
Well, I'm staring straight into the sun but my heart beats for no one...then...
Who did this? Well i don't really care
I'm all tied in knots, and it's the feeling that gets me down
Who did this? Well, I don't really care.

Cuz it's nights like these that keep you coming back for something
I know it isn't me
It keeps you coming back

Well, I'm staring straight into the sun and I'll leave you here with no one
Who did this? I don't really care.
If it hurts or not, cuz it's the reason you shut me down
Who did this? Well, I don't really care.

I'm standing in the water
I can pull you under the tide.
More ways for you to see the way I'm holding you down
Look at yourself...look at me now.
Track Name: M-F
You could stay with me
If only for a night, or maybe forever
And we could say goodbye
When the sun arives, or we could just sleep in
Damn your voice
Well, we'll miss you
You could waste your life when all this time it's you and I
Take me home; I want you; to feel the way I did..to still be inside you
For comfort I want you to take me home
We could leave here alone like every other night or leave here together
And you could take me home when the sun arives or we could just resist
Damn your voice
Well, we'll miss you
We could waste our lives, when all this time it's you and I
She's safe in my arms
Why do this to me?
Say anything, say anything...
Why do this to me?
Say anything
When all along it's you and I to keep me safe take me home
We were right
We were wrong
We won't be safe here for long it's too late
Track Name: World's Arms
These days seem strange and out of place
Weathered by the storms that we create
Somehow life seemed certain until now
Back my way in until i dig my way down, yeah
It's just paris in my mind
Stays with me all the time
Convince myself that tonight is the night
We are the world's arms
We are gone tonight
A slow fade for my get away
I'll be holding my breath til you find your way
It's just paris in my mind
Stays with me all the time
Convince myself that tonight is the night
How strange; never gonna let it go
I can see it in your eyes, the places we'll go
How strange; never gonna let this go
We are the world's arms
We are gone tonight
Track Name: Week Old
Say the words that say it all to keep you here
When the lights that flicker by will all disappear
Another day another night to capture me
Another phrase another line to hear you speak
Oh but she's running out on me
The way that she leaves
For the moment we're alone discovering
I wonder why you took the time to come to me
You slip away with every lie thats surfacing
Close enough to fall in love just to watch you leave
It cuts through like this river that went straight to my heart
When all that's left was for me to fall apart
You know....you know
Patiently awaiting life to lift you up
The pedestal that's far to high was not enough
When every waking hour spent watching you
Has left me on the edge of feeling used
On and on (she can't she won't she will)
She'll be the death of me
It cuts through like this river that went straight to my Heart (she leaves)
When all that's left was for me to fall apart (she's running out on me)
Track Name: Chinatowne
It doesn't matter who you are or who you've been with
If i don't ask then you don't say a word
I gotta make a match to what i'm missing
You gotta take a taste to find out what it's worth
If you really wanna see what I've got to show
Baby there's only one place to go
Honey meet me in the back tonight
I wanna feel something
It's quite alright that you and i would die tonight
You can't sleep or stay awake
Somehow you're always desperate enough to be Pushing your luck
It's too late to think it over
But i love to watch you leave
There's always another one
I am always the other one
It's too late to think it over
There's no time for you and me
I am always the other one
I will never be the only one
This isn't gonna last, oh we'll never last
The two of us together, one last time
Honey meet me in the back tonight
I wanna feel something
It's quite alright if you and i die tonight
Track Name: Computer
You've had the time to forgive me
Don't think I haven't thought twice
You crossed your heart and hoped to die so don't bury me alive
A second chance is what we live for
A second glance and not a single more
I'm waiting for you, still waiting for you
Don't speak
Let's just keep on dancing to the rhythm
Steady now
Just keep it steady now
Now you're safe in the distance
A freckle of somebodies skin
One regret while you lie next to him
I'm wasting my time
I'm the least of what you cared for
Don't ask don't implore
I don't need you right now
But I need you right now
Don't speak
I don't wanna hear it
Can you see I wanna keep on dancing
To the rhythm
Steady now
Hey, I'm on my way
Take nothing for granted
We'll steal center stage and keep on dancing
To the rhythm
Track Name: Deadweight
Come on turn the lights down low
Let's take it far too fast
Never wait never want never worry
Nevermind cuz it's never gonna last
Hey was it not enough to take back all that you had given up
Your pride your life I was living
Your words never left me so far down
Was it not enough to leave me here for another one
Your time your eyes I don't need it
I find that I want you even more
James, where did we go wrong?
There's nothing left to give
Hold on to the weight of the bottle
At no point will you ever set this down
Drink up til you get to the bottom
There's no way that she'll ever want you now
What it is, what it's not
Count me in or cut me off
Like deadweight, you're dead to me
Come on promised everything
Given you the world
Don't start don't stop get ready
Don't watch cuz we're burning this one down
Hey, was it not enough to pull you in when I come undone
Your eyes your lies are forgiven
And i'm on the outside looking in
Was it not enough to watch me fall for another one
Don't wait don't want you to worry
I know that you never would back down
Is there something you wanna say?
So say it now
Count me in, cut me off
What it is, what it's not
What you see is what you get; wait
Well goddam
I wanna watch you run
Track Name: So Much Wreckage
All along the river
So much wreckage
As the flames died down you kept your distance
Keep on digging (safe yourself don't treat me like this)
As we both lie down you kept your distance
Keep on digging
Never say you're sorry
You're sorry? No
Don't you feel the least bit out of this in spite of all the Ways we confess
Track Name: Hit Or Miss
I'd rather be the last thing you'd see
Through your eyes wide open terrified til you're weak in the knees
Misfortune's got the best of your luck
But who's in control of this car crash til it's all hit or miss with you
So right about now i could use a little more of what You're giving
Don't tell me this again
It's ok
It's one in the same and it's safe to say
It's all hit or miss with you
It's ok now
I'd rather be the last thing you'd hear while the sound is never enough
Put away til the absess is loud and clear
It's all hit or miss with you
It's alright now
Don't tempt me just hang me on a line
Don't tempt me just change your mind
There's only one way to follow through
This car crash is weighing heavy and it's all hit or miss with you
Track Name: Building Walls
I've been growing tired waiting for your call
Sleeping in silence winding down
Holding on to no one nothing's left
Now it's just one more one night stand
There's no way that we can even begin to talk about These walls that you've built
That you build around yourself
I know this is the last place you'd ever come
I need it in the worst way
The one thing you won't
I'm in and out of my head
Something's wrong
Waking up without you but not alone
One more night alone...
Just one more night alone
