Track Name: You Walk, I'll Shame
Actions speak louder than words,
And I can't quite finds an action,
That screams louder than hers, (Oh Gus!)
Left me wondering why,
I'm not gonna sit around and miss you,
While you fuck some other guy

Delete the pics you sent,
Forget those things you said,
It's over, (Over)
We're through, (And I'm never coming back to you)
I'll keep you off my mind,
I'll keep you blocked online,
I'm off to find a girl who loves me,
Cause that's clearly not you.

So, walk away and see if it gets any better,
Not gonna let her,
Play my heart anymore,
I'll lose my mind,
Never regret her and I'll never forget her,
I can't do this anymore,
So just go walk out the door.

And you think it's fine,
That I'm here by myself,
So you just run away get drunk,
Trying to screw somebody else,
It's so fucked up,
When you finally call,
And I have to sit around and listen,
'Bout how his dick is so damn small. (Nobody Cares!)

Delete the pics you sent,
Forget those things you said,
It's over, (Over)
We're through, (And I'm never coming back to you)
I'll keep you off my mind,
I'll keep you blocked online,
I'm off to find a girl who loves me,
Cause that's clearly not you.

So, walk away and see if it gets any better,
Not gonna let her,
Play my heart anymore,
I'll lose my mind,
Never regret her and I'll never forget her,
I can't do this anymore,
So just go walk out the door.

And I can't change the fact that I still miss you,
And I know that deep down you'd still be mine,
I know I was a jerk but I loved you all the same,
But I won't let you waste any more of my time.

Walk away and see if it gets any better,
Not gonna let her,
Play my heart anymore,
I'll lose my mind,
Never regret her and I'll never forget her,
I can't do this anymore,
So just go walk out the door.

Walk away and see if it gets any better,
Not gonna let her,
Play my heart anymore,
I'll lose my mind,
Never regret her and I'll never forget her,
I can't do this anymore,
So just go walk out the door.

So just go walk out the door
Track Name: Drink No Evil
Hold your breath now, and count to ten
Another night out is another forced night full of regret
Fake a smile, and drink just to repress
Fit in with the crowds, Never want to come off second best

Just for tonight
It’s critical

Go and head on home, you’re better off alone
Things better not left unsaid, just voices in my head again
Where are my friends? This night has drawn to an end
Another walk home again, and another fucked up weekend well spent

I’m a sucker, for the cruelest of intentions,
Every sip is a step toward a night I shouldn't mention,
Where’d the time go? I’m lost with indiscretion,
Watch the world drink themselves to their most honest self-reflection

Just for the night
It’s critical

Go and head on home, you’re better off alone
Things are better not left unsaid, just voices in my head again
Where are my friends? This night has drawn to an end
Another walk home again, and another fucked up weekend well spent

I’m staring at the ceiling, I don’t know what to expect,
I’m dancing in the backroom, just drink whatever’s left
Can’t understand this feeling, I’m losing my head
Just make it through the night, that’s critical

Go and head on home, you’re better off alone
Things are better not left unsaid, just voices in my head again
Where are my friends? This night has drawn to an end
Another walk home again, and another fucked up weekend well spent
Track Name: Three Cheers For Apathy
Wallflower looking sadder as the night rolls on,
Fake a smile because you know there’s people
Haven’t slept in a while and these nights are long,
Can’t get her off his mind
This scene sucks, this place is overflowing,
Full of reasons we just shouldn’t breed,
He can’t take the eyes of people watching,
He’s finished drinking so he turns to leave

And then he saw her out the corner of his eye,
That strange half-smile she gave him made those wasted months feel right,
He couldn’t stop himself,
He went tripping over words getting lost in her eyes,
She saw the way he felt, wiped his heart on her sleeve,
Said “I’m sorry kid, not tonight”,

Don’t take it personally, I just know what I want, boy,
And train wrecks are not my scene,
I’ve got this front-row seat and I’ll sit here and watch you burn,
Don’t take it personally, I’m not trying to hurt you,
I know this is kind of mean,
It’s three cheers for apathy as I sit here and watch you burn,

World shaken, feeling broken as the days roll on,
Done faking it for all the people watching,
Set out to stop the train, he’s out to prove her wrong,
Can’t get her off his mind,
New look, new place, new job, he’s found a way out,
Now out with his friends, hard time’s come to an end,
That girl that changed his life

And then he saw her out the corner of his eye,
That look of shock he gave him made those wasted months feel right,
She couldn’t hide the way she went tripping over words,
Bags up under her eyes,
He saw the way she felt, wiped her heart on his sleeve,
Said “I’m sorry kid, not tonight”,

Don’t take it personally, I just know what I want, girl,
And train wrecks are not my scene,
I’ve got this front-row seat and I’ll sit here and watch you burn,
Don’t take it personally, I’m not trying to hurt you,
I know this is kind of mean,
It’s three cheers for apathy as I sit here and watch you burn

She’s left broken, feeling shattered as the world falls down,
Messed up, now she’s stuck here simply watching,
The boy she never chanced on is the talk of the town,
Can’t get him off her mind,
He swore he wouldn’t call her,
(She’s had enough and she’s done breaking down)
Regrets those things he called her,
(She’s sick of loneliness, she’s done being proud)
He leaves to go and see her
(She ditches work, grabs a cab to his place)
He knows how much he needs her
(And then she’s greeted by a familiar face)

Don’t take it personally,
I was too disconnected to see what you man to me,
We’ll stand for honesty,
Screaming “We’re here to have our turn”,
Don’t take it personally,
Let’s get out of this hellhole,
The slow life is not my scene,
Three cheers for apathy,
As I sit here and watch this whole damn city burn
Track Name: Faith In Us
Hey,
It’s been eight days,
I know you’re feeling it too,
I know you think we’re drifting away,

And I’ve been down this road before,
And I’ve been telling myself,
I wouldn’t let it happen anymore,

They say we’re falling to pieces,
But I think we can put it back,
Let’s put us back together,
They say things happen for a reason,
But I’m becoming sick and tired,
Of all these old clichés,

So come on, come on, come on,
Let’s prove them wrong,
If they really know us better,
Than they think we know ourselves,
Or so they say,
Go on, go on, it’s been too long,
We said we’d never get too distant,
When we swore we’d keep our faith in us,

Hey,
It’s been ten days,
We haven’t spoken a word,
And it feels like we’re drifting away,
And we’re not talking anymore,
But I don’t want to end up,
Like everything that’s happened before

They say we’re falling to pieces,
But I think we can put it back,
Let’s put us back together,
I think that we both beat this,
And I’m not giving up on anyone like this,

So come on, come on, come on,
Let’s prove them wrong,
If they really know us better,
Than they think we know ourselves,
Or so they say,
Go on, go on, it’s been too long,
We said we’d never get too distant,
When we swore we’d keep our faith in us,
Track Name: Big Dreams (of a Small Town Kid)
All alone in his room, his guitar’s out of tune,
And he’s lost to the sound of his stereo,
Late at night, wide awake, while he plans his escape,
Hits record on track as he waits,
He ignored what they said, his parents, all his friends,
It’s more than just a dream in his head,
Tune them out, prove them wrong, finish another song,
He can stop and give up when he’s dead.

This may be the loudest, that he’s ever sung

I’ll break out of this hell hole,
I’m destined for something more than this,
Can’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid
Break out of the shackles,
Make the most of my only chance to live
Won’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid

(We are destined for more, something more than this, we are destined for this)

In four months, got a band, a few songs, and some fans,
And he dreams of his songs on the radio,
Played some shows at the pubs, in the town he grew up,
But the small stage just isn’t enough.
Signed his first record deal after a trip on the field,
On a makeshift tour down the east coast
This is it, his way out, his ticket further south,
What he’s always wanted the most

This may be the loudest, that they’ve heard him sing

I’ll break out of this hell hole,
I’m destined for something more than this,
Can’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid
Break out of the shackles,
Make the most of my only chance to live
Won’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid

On a stage, with his band, in front of thousands of fans,
And now hears his songs on the radio
All his goals, all his fears, over these countless years,
No longer just a dream in his head

The whole crowd goes silent, just to hear him sing

I’ll break out of this hell hole,
I’m destined for something more than this,
Can’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid
Break out of the shackles,
Make the most of my only chance to live
Won’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid

I’ll break out of this hell hole,
I’m destined for something more than this,
Can’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid
Break out of the shackles,
Make the most of my only chance to live
Won’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid

(We are destined for more,
Something more than this,
We are destined for this)
