Track Name: Get Out Alive
Take a match to the mess I’ve made
It’s just wasted energy
Shiny lights; just a love affair
A few weeks late to the scene
Well I know, what I know, what I know
This ain’t Hollywood
Now just an empty space
Where a dreamer once stood

No, we won’t get out alive
Oh, there’s no getting out alive

Go, go
‘cuz it’s all we know to do
Wide-eyed and see through, with big dreams
Big dreams from a bed room.
Well I know, what I know, what I know
This ain’t Hollywood
Keep it tight in the back of your mind
And keep it there for good.

No, we won’t get out alive
Oh, there’s no getting out alive
I’m better, better for the time

A penny per regret and we’d all be rich
A hundred different misses, for every single hit
There’s a hundred other kids who do it just like me
A hundred different hands who’d give it up for free

Boys and girls, all lined up at the door
You’d better know just what you’re asking for
Track Name: Half Filled Boxes
The victory is yours, but I want you to know
I stopped playing a long time ago
You’re enamored by the struggle of man
Don’t try to tell me you’ve done everything that you can
You are entitled to have your big fun
Sometimes it’s work, just to bite my tongue
Well every light is out, and our time is up
So my darling, I’ve had enough

I’ll never speak about the things I miss
I’ve never slept better than this
I’ll never hope that you’re lonely
But you’ll never find someone more for you than me
Half filled boxes of things we will never do
If it ain’t hell, it ain’t good enough for you

Now, I’m not headed where you’re going
Down that road there’s a storm that is growing
You wrote the book, but you’re not the first
You’re only at your best when I’m at my worst
Now I can see you picking up speed
No longer are you everything that I need
I could swear that I’ve stood here before
But not again, and not anymore

Lay down in the bed you’ve made
And enjoy what you deserve
And oh, it’s such a shame
But no longer my concern
Because I’ve….let it go
Track Name: Let You Down
I know that life can get so heavy
I know there’s so much a heart can stand
I know you’ll do fine when you’re ready
I know you like the back of my hand

Did you think for a minute
I would let you down?
Don’t think for a minute I would let you down

I know people can be so mean
I know your insides are made of gold
I know you’re stronger than it may seem
I know the night can feel oh so cold

I know you’re afraid to scream out loud
I know that sinners will come out to play
I know what it’s been since you left town
You know I’ll love you always anyway

Did you think for a minute
I would let you down?
Track Name: Sweet Hurricane
Won’t you spend some time with me?
We’re in it deeper than you would believe
So caught up; stuck on ourselves
A fantasy, on the edge of hell
Won’t you wash us clean, raze this place to the ground?
And together we will make an awesome scene
When everything comes crashing down

So now the panic ensues
By those in love with what they own
Look at them so confused
It’s the end of all they’ve every known

Sing sweet hurricane
(We are not satisfied)
(So quick to criticize)
(Now there is no time)
Sing sweet hurricane

No one needs to remind me
In a hundred years I’d never forget
When I was younger
Words a wise-man said
‘Greed is a child’s game; money only get’s you so far
There’s no taking it with you, and it don’t make you who you are.’

You’re inching closer
They don’t even know you’re there
The rain is coming
Debris is swirling everywhere
Sweet hurricane, give us a chance
To try this whole thing again
Sing sweet hurricane
Track Name: Wait For You
I believe in, what I have taken on
All that it brings I shall endure
‘Cuz it’s miles to reach the city, and cities to reach the coast
It’s your skin I miss the most
I don’t blame you, if my words fall on deaf ears
In my absence, I can’t keep track
And I’m thinking you won’t be there when I get back

I can’t slow down, so don’t ask me to choose
If you give up hope, then we both lose
What I lack in grace, I will make up in truth
I’d wait for you

It’s not the most normal maybe
A little less than ideal
I’d never give it up easy
I’d never give up on you
I can’t change who I am so don’t ask me to
I’m a moving target
But you’ve got a steady hand
In your absence, I will keep track
Now I, just hope you’re there when I get back

I can’t slow down, so don’t ask me to choose
If you give up hope, then we both lose
What I lack in grace, I will make up in truth
I’d wait for you
I’m getting older, but not yet old enough
I’d wait for you

In a year or two we can find our feet again
We can put back all that’s come undone
Do the things that we said we would
In a year or two I’ll be back for good
Track Name: Right Side
Earth is shaking again
Water rising over my head
As crazy as it’s ever been
Men still killin’ men, (still killin’ men)
We all made of the same things inside
Fighting over power and pride
Stories told; people lied
All sense and logic swept aside
You ain’t gotta be violent to make a stand
Don’t gotta point a gun just to be a man
Foundations made of sand
Is this the brilliant plan?
I’d rather die than be afraid
Sometimes I am
Sometimes I won’t
Damned if you do
Damned if you don’t
I’d rather die than be afraid, but I am…


So pick me up, put me on the right side
Stand me up next to the justified
Let me walk side by side
With anyone standing on the right side

Count your steps by eight
Desperate turns to hate
Leaders think when it’s too late
Insecure now over compensate
Here it comes, history repeating
Push has come shoving
Stand up or go crawling
Sooner or later is calling…
Out your name.
I’d rather die than sell my soul
Sometimes I do
Sometimes I don’t
Damned if you will
Damned if you won’t
I’d rather die than sell my soul
Track Name: Grace (Here With You)
The room begins collecting light
Casting shadows on our sad goodbyes
I’ll call you when I reach the other side
And wait to hold you for another time

If I could just stay here a while
Be saved by the grace of your smile
Could you be my savior or not?
Could I stay for a while?
Here with you

Watching as your wheels touch down
First kiss begins the countdown
‘Cuz in a few short days we will be here again
But that doesn’t matter; we are complete ‘til then

I’ve been on the road for weeks now
I’m just trying to get some sleep before Boston
Fourteen days until I see your face
Unless I find you in a dream I am lost in
Track Name: Hello Vertigo
I’ve got apologies
If you’ve got the time
I won’t waste a minute of yours
And you can have all of mine.
I’ve been waitin’ so long
For the fire, to catch the flame
When the truth comes out
Strangers’ll want to know my name

I’m counting down…
Heartbeat is getting loud…
Can we make a mess?
Three, two, one….

Hello Vertigo
I am higher now than I’ve ever been low
I’m good, I’m so good to go
Hello Vertigo

I’ve got this ringing in my ears
(But save the get-well cards)
Like waking up to my biggest fear
(Coming to inside crashed cars)
A free fall through the atmosphere
(Next to black holes, and shiny stars)
I like, I like the view from up here

Like driving way, too fast
Like trying to make it last
Better than I’d ever hoped
Than any pill pushed down my throat
Dizzy at a hundred miles an hour
Track Name: Run For Your Life
I think you better run for your life

Call up the pharmacist
‘Cuz you need some help to sleep
Now you’re the best of friends
‘Cuz dirty habits, they don’t come cheap
Now your palms are growing sweaty
Sure as hell they should be
‘Cuz you’re miles away from ready
And you’ve underestimated me

I’ve made up my mind
You’ll be forgotten at best
Stock options, vacation time
Now the clock says…

I think you better run for your life

Call all your fair-weather, Wall-Street friends
And laugh how we’re all so dumb
You’re tie is the noose around your neck
Who’s gonna bail you outta this one?
Got a boat, and some exotic homes
So, I guess the jokes on me
But when it settles out, you’re gonna find
All them toys, they ain’t that sweet

This world’s got a funny way of turning out
I think it’s funny the way you’ve turned out
Track Name: High Time For Arrival
I left messages on your phone
Even followed you home
But I guess talk is cheap
Come runnin’ in the middle of the night
You keep temptin’ me, I just might…

Make you forget what you thought was true
‘Cuz if you go down, if you go down, I’m going too.

Shed your skin now take a good look
Said you’re gonna get free
Take it to heart, take what you see
Now you’re gonna break free

I’m sure that you’ve heard
Ev-e-ry word
Bout who you should be
Get Free

I don’t care who you think you know
And I hate to say that I told you so
Say it don’t mean much to me
But I’m here ‘til you break, til you get free

I don’t think I can make it without you
So if you go down, if you go down, I’m going too

I’ll be at the bottom when you come falling down
I’ll be your brakes when you’re crashing to the ground
I’ll be here, ‘til you come around
Track Name: Comin' Back Soon
Crack like thunder and I’m awake
Sweat makes me shiver cold
Like a burning fever I cannot shake
This is getting old
“I confess,” is what you said
Standing still as stone
Cryin’ “I’d sooner be dead
When you’re not home”

Your voice it comes out pure
You could use some rest I’m sure
I’m gonna play pretty, gonna make ‘em dance slow
Say goodnight, I gotta go

I, I’ll be comin’ back soon and I
Just thought that you should know
That I, I have always loved you
Sometimes it doesn’t show
No matter where you are
Or where I go
I, I have always loved you and I
Just thought that you should know

Lost in wonder, but I don’t blink
A few more hours left to go
She comes over to buy me a drink
Said she drove in to see the show
Now I’m talkin’ to her
And thinkin’ of you
As I slip out the back door
Realize you’re strong and true
More than I give you credit for

I’m tired but not abused
Could sleep but what’s the use
Gonna play pretty, gonna make ‘em dance
Real, real slow
Track Name: Finally
So come and step outside
It’s just right for swimming
It’s what I’ve been waiting for
Waiting for since the beginning
Park your car
Leave your shoes at home
We’ll squeeze this for all it’s worth
Down where the water touches the Earth

Finally,
I’m right where I’m supposed to be

Gonna be cold this year
Gonna be dark before long
But it’s not quite here
And the day’s not quite gone
Park your car
Leave your shoes at home
Squeeze it for all its worth
Won’t you kiss my face again to be sure?

Ashes dance from the ground
Wind starts kickin’ up
I said, ‘let me walk you home’
As I helped you up
Not gonna talk about the world
Not gonna talk at all
We’ll squeeze this for all it’s worth
Last time for a while
But that’s okay, because now I am sure
Track Name: Standing At Our Funeral *Deluxe Edition*
Now you’re thinking what I’m thinking
But just lay with me a while more
Cuz fighting is just fighting
When it’s no longer worth fighting for

Here we are, gonna call it a day
Always did learn everything the hard way
I can see we’ve lost it more than usual
Feels like we’re, standing at our funeral

Seems a little bit crazy
But I feel a whole lot better
And if it really was that easy
Wouldn’t we have made it thru whatever?

No, I can’t touch you now
The quiet speaks so loud
Can we dance like its Sunday afternoon
So come lat your flower down
Everyone come gather ‘round
No more backs against the wall
Standing at our funeral

Now you’re thinking what I’m thinking
But just lay with me a while more
Fighting really is just fighting
When it’s no longer worth fighting for
Track Name: Good One Get Away *Deluxe Edition*
Turns out it rains on this side too
Turns out freedom don’t come free
Now I don’t got much to do
Turns out you were right about me

So you keep walking
And I’ll keep chasing
I can’t take back, and I cannot replace
But you know, I know better than let a good one get away

Far from better, far from true
Forgiveness has a name
Recognizing what I must do
For that I’m not ashamed

So you keep walking
And I’ll keep chasing
I can’t take back, and I cannot replace
But you know, I know better than let a good one get away
So, you keep walking
And I’ll keep chasing
Till you come back
To the original place cuz
I know I won’t, let a good one get away

Turns out I’ve learned a thing or two
Turns out it aint what I thought it’d be
Now I don’t got much to do
Till you come back to me
Track Name: The One About The World *Deluxe Edition*
I’ve been told the world has turned on its head
And the news says they’re right
I think they may be onto something
Didn’t think I’d be the one to explain….well….

Nothing here will last, not forever
Not you, not me
But with what we’ve got, we’ll have a shot
With what we feel, the world can never steal

We may just rise up,

I’ve been told that true love is dead
And the world says their right
But they know not of what they’re speaking.
So I will be the one to explain…

We may just rise up,
Laugh in the face of the devil
Disappear from all that is evil
And when this goes down, and it surely will,
We’ll have the best view together

I’ve been told that true love is dead
And the world says their right
But they know not of what they’re speaking.
So I will be the one to explain…

I’ve been told the world has turned on its head
All my friends say they’re right
Could it be, their on to something?
Let me be the one to explain…

Who’s gonna save us now?
