Step out the back
Take a deep breath, and realize it’s coming true
Pack up our things
Load up the van, get out the way, we’re coming through
From a garage into a basement
Into a room without a view
Take all your things and rearrange ‘em
We’re moving on to chapter two

And the glass is crystal clear, the pictures never seem to fade
We’re gonna keep our window open, let the world hear what we have to say
And we’ll say it loud, like we mean it
‘Cause any day could be our last
And all these changes good or bad they happen so fast

Walk through the door with our right foot forward
Nothing to see but an empty space
We’ll hang around for a little while
Call it our home, it’s our own escape
We fill these walls with inspiration
Fill this room with the sounds we make
It resonates in my head forever
It’s what we got so it’s what we’ll take

And the glass is crystal clear, the pictures never seem to fade
We’re gonna keep our window open, let the world hear what we have to say
And we’ll say it loud, like we mean it
‘Cause any day could be our last
And all these changes good or bad they happen so fast

The road ahead is cruel and uncertain
And that’s what makes this journey great
We’ve got some goals but no destination
And every path’s one that we create
Every day’s a new place to venture
It’s just like waking up to a dream
And from right here and through my perception
A beautiful view, the best I’ve ever seen

And the glass is crystal clear, the pictures never seem to fade
We’re gonna keep our window open, let the world hear what we have to say
And we’ll say it loud, like we mean it
‘Cause any day could be our last
And all these changes good or bad they happen so fast
And I can’t help but laugh
Track Name: Nevermind
Sitting there in your kitchen, it’s getting kinda late
If our currency was mistakes, I’d buy your love ‘cause I’ve made a million
Can I count on you to take everything I’ve thrown your way
And not throw it back in my face, like sex, drugs, rock’n’roll and pain
I know you want it all to stay, but it’s getting kinda late

When I think of this condition, I can’t help but reminisce
About the time we fought with sticks, it’s like a drug, it’s like a religion
And I’d worship everyday just to go back to those days
Those days of violence, those days of sex, drugs, rock’n’roll and pain
You know I want it all to stay, but it’s getting kinda late
And I know you know better than me, but sometimes wanna say

Take a hold of me
Take a hold of everything I wish I could be
But that warrants no reply
It’s just hello and then goodbye
We’re living in a day of nevermind

Every time I try to listen, you’ll tell me that it’s right
I’ll tell you that tonight might not be the right time
To try and help myself, love no one else ‘cause that’s how this game plays
And that’s how it’s gonna stay
And I know that you don’t want it this way, but this is no democracy
And everytime I look the other way it just makes me wanna say

Take a hold of me
Take a hold of everything I wish I could be
But that warrants no reply
It’s just hello and then goodbye
We’re living in a day of nevermind

I can’t explain the reason why
When we’re living in a day of nevermind
No one ever seems to bat an eye
When we’re talking ‘bout something to live for
I wish I could go back to simpler times
You know I never wanna have to say goodbye
But I will if the timing is right
‘Cause the light that ignites when we fight is just right

So I say take a hold of me
Take a hold of everything I wish I could be
But that warrants no reply
It’s just hello and then goodbye
We’re living in a day of never mind

So take a hold of me
Take a hold of everything I wish I could be
But that warrants no reply
It’s just hello and then goodbye
We’re living in a day of never mind
Track Name: Let You Go
And there you go
On your own again
‘Cause now you know
I want nothing to do with you
Anymore
You don’t mean a thing to me
You crazy whore
When will you see that you’re useless to everybody

And now you’re coming back for more
But sorry bitch, I let you go
Didn’t take me too long to find out
That you were nothing but a doubt
When your true side started to show
I had nothing left to do but let you

I see you walking down the street with your new boy
Won’t bother telling him that he’s just your new toy
‘Cause in a week he will find out and you’ll be nothing but a doubt
So don’t stop just shout

There you go
Running around again
Trying to show
Off whatever it is that you think that you’ve got
When I saw you walkin ‘round, down the street on your own
I really couldn’t help but notice that you let yourself go
I guess you had it comin’, you were under a lot of pressure
All the cash, the love, the compassion, the pleasure
That you had from me when we were meant to be
But all that caring charity is now history
And when I really stop and think about what happened to us baby
I realize all my feelings for you were me thinking crazy, yeah

And now you’re coming back for more
But sorry bitch, I let you go
Didn’t take me too long to find out
That you were nothing but a doubt
When your true side started to show
I had nothing left to do but let you

And now you’re coming back for more
But sorry bitch, I let you go
I see you walking down the street with your new boy
Won’t bother telling him that he’s just your new toy
Didn’t take me too long to find out
That you were nothing but a doubt
When your true side started to show
I had nothing left to do but let you
‘Cause in a week he will find out and you’ll be nothing but a doubt
So don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop
No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no
Track Name: Nude Song
Sun beats down as I step off the plane
Got a stiff neck, I need a beer, I’m going fuckin’ insane
As I walk through the gate I was seconds too late
Her hair was blonde, her eyes were blue, I knew my life would never be the same

I thought about her all day, she was stuck in my head
Got my guitar, I got my beer, just need A/C and a bed
As I walk into my room I feel this never ending doom
All I know is that I gotta and I’m gonna see her soon

You fill me up
I can’t escape this summer sun
Although you’ve got me on the run
I’m so uptight
I’m so relaxed then you walk by
And you’re the reason why I need a vacation from this life

Day two on the beach I was having a snooze
I’m loving life, I’m loving sun, I’m loving tunes, loving booze
Then there she was walking by, I can’t believe what I see
Lift up my shades I look at her and she looks right back at me
I said hey I like your hair, she said hey I like your style
That’s when I woke up all groggy eyed and drunk and you were nowhere in sight

You fill me up
I can’t escape this summer sun
Although you’ve got me on the run
I’m so uptight
I’m so relaxed then you walk by
And you’re the reason why I need a vacation from this life

On the beach was the last time
That I saw your face
You’re not alone this time
But I’ll never have a chance like this again
Then and there is when it hit me
My jaw dropped, my vision blurred
But I woke up and she was with me
I guess now and then, now and then the underdog gets the girl

You fill me up
I can’t escape this summer sun
Although you’ve got me on the run
I’m so uptight
I’m so relaxed then you walk by
And you’re the reason why I need a vacation from this life
Track Name: 6th Floor
Wake up and tell me did you ever feel out of place
These past eleven months have gone by so quickly
I still can’t seem to turn the page
And I’m just a number
But you were number one
And I’ve still got your number so maybe next time we could keep in touch
I would keep it up
If you let me know

I can feel it now tonight
When you’re laying far from my side
Wherever you go don’t lie
Can you feel it now tonight

Will you wake up
Will you tell me
Do you know what I wanna hear badly
These past few days have felt like a dream
But sometimes my dreams turn into nightmares
And I’ve been doing too much thinking
Too much giving up
And I hope you won’t forget me just know that I think about you everyday
Now you’re gone away
So I’d best let go

I can feel it now tonight
When you’re laying far from my side
Wherever you go don’t lie
Can you feel it now tonight
Track Name: Passport
Should I drink less
Should I smoke more
Is this real life
Or is this folklore
If you’re port then I’m going starboard
I think I need another stamp in my passport

When the happiest place on earth is a corporate slogan
That’s the time when humanities values should really be questioned
And what is life when one night you’re seriously contemplating the question
And the very next night you’re drunk again ‘cause some girl bailed on your best friend
And I ask myself a thousand times

Should I drink less
Should I smoke more
Is this real life
Or is this folklore
If you’re port then I’m going starboard
I think I need another stamp in my passport

And if I come clean do you think that I’d stay the same
I don’t know
Or will I just keep hiding behind my headphones and my shades
Because it seems to me that this society’s got its priorities way out of proportion
We’ve got a country full of King Midases with scentless roses that are worth a fortune
And the questions seem to come to mind

Should I drink less
Should I smoke more
Is this real life
Or is this folklore
If you’re port then I’m going starboard
I think I need another stamp in my passport
Nothing’s changing
Except the whole world
Climate, stock market, watch one and not the other
Step up now the ball is in your court
I think I used my second chance can I have one more
Track Name: Unpack
If I unpack all the bags you wanted baby
Would you get back all the time you wasted on me
Step back will I ever find myself on
The right track

Can’t follow me back off the ground
Hope you never tried to let me down
You know they say what goes around comes around and around and around
Hush baby try not to make a sound
Wouldn’t wanna be the one who drowns
In a puddle of her own tears on the ground on the ground on the ground

If I unpack all the bags you wanted baby
Would you get back all the time you wasted on me
Step back will I ever find myself on
The right track if I get back, honey
When you come back would you still remember
All the times that we had, it was late November
When we made plans to find adventure
But we lost track, but we’ll get back on it

When everybody’s on their way
And I’ve got nothing left to say
I hope you’ll be here waiting for the day when I say it’s okay
No sense in wasting much more time
Every breath is a day and days go by
But if you like where you’re at then why can’t I why can’t I

If I unpack all the bags you wanted baby
Would you get back all the time you wasted on me
Step back will I ever find myself on
The right track if I get back, honey
When you come back would you still remember
All the times that we had, it was late November
When we made plans to find adventure
But we lost track

‘Cause every time that I try
I don’t know why I came here at all
In the first place
Why are you talking that way
Why are you walking away
Remember yesterday

If I unpack all the bags you wanted baby
Would you get back all the time you wasted on me
Step back will I ever find myself on
The right track
When you come back would you still remember
All the times that we had, it was late November
When we made plans to find adventure
But we lost track, but we’ll get back
Track Name: Anthems Of A Generation
When I was born I’d never know
How far we’d go
But now I roam far from home
With nothing but freedom
‘Cause you and me gonna set it free tonight
Woah let me tell you how this rock scene has reshaped my whole life
You know I know that

We didn’t come this far for nothing
They can try and bring us down
But we won’t fall we stand for something
And we helped build this town
And when they blow up we’ll be watching
Standing front row in the crowd
The anthems of a generation
We’ll be singing fuckin’ loud

And to the kids at home I hope you know
You’re never alone
A broken heart, a broken home
Well don’t let it stop you
‘Cause the sun still shines and the drum still plays your song
You know, let me tell you now, life moves fast so stop and sing along
I know you know that

We didn’t come this far for nothing
They can try and bring us down
But we won’t fall we stand for something
And we helped build this town
And when they blow up we’ll be watching
Standing front row in the crowd
The anthems of a generation
We’ll be singing fuckin’ loud
