Track Name: Gettin' Over It
Two years today
I was in a fucking state

Too spent to give a shit
I was too messed up for the pain to hit
Only lasts so long
Told myself there was nothing wrong

'Til we first hung out
And I saw what life was all about

Every single heartbreak is a chance to start again
Found the chance to make it through on the first day that I spent with you

That familiar feeling
I last felt three years ago

Acceptance was the hardest part
I realised that I fell apart

I still have my bad days
Not unlike everyone
But they never hurt as bad now I've found the one
Track Name: We Don't Take Kindly To Strangers
When every face looks like the last one
And every voice is a stranger's
I think it's time we call it quits tonight
Or maybe we can end this in a fight

Same shit; another boring day
I can't fucking wait 'til we can get away
Leave everything behind
Walk away; it's just you and me tonight

Drive all night to escape the city
We'll take the back seat
Morning light burns my eyes
I climb right out that grave

Same shit; another boring day
I can't fucking wait 'til we can get away
Leave everything behind
Walk away; it's just you and me tonight

We need to find something new
We need to get away
Track Name: I Can Be A Pretty Likeable Guy When I'm Not Pointing A Gun At Somebody
On the walk home tonight
Before the darkness consumes those taxi lights
Can we just talk a while?
I want to make you laugh; I'll try to make you smile

If it just hurts too much
I'll try to pick you up
Woah-oh
To you, my best friend
I pray this never ends

This is all I need to continue
Nothing else really counts when I'm with you

On the ride home today
Before the sunlight sinks into that sea
Can we just stop a moment?
The world can carry on as soon as I get home

If it just hurts too much
I'll try to pick you up
Woah-oh
To you, my best friend
I pray this never ends

Don't let this end
I won't let this end
Never let this end
Track Name: Everything's Alright (Right?)
The importance of feeling wanted is something we overlooked
We turned our backs on happiness and pretended the pain was enough
To fill our hearts completely
To make us feel alive
But some times it's hard to say to yourself that everything's alright

"It's alright"
Track Name: Long Drives & High Fives
With the city lights behind us
I start to feel alive
Roll the windows down on the edge of town
We're home before it's light

It's nights like these that make me feel complete
The gauge is running low but we've still got miles to go

Check my pockets
They're empty again
Just keep talking
We can pretend

I needed tonight to make me feel alive
The bottles running low but we've still got hours to go

Check my pockets
I'm out o' cigarettes
Just keep talking
We can pretend

That we're the only ones who feel the urge to up and run

With the city lights behind us
I start to feel alive
Roll the windows down on the edge of town
We're home before it's light
Track Name: You're Fuckin' Out!
You tell me nothing is as important as it seems

But I'm not sure
Procrastination hasn't got me very far

So I'll try, just this time
And maybe I can make this right

But I'm not betting on anything to go my way
That's okay
At least I left the house today

That's more than enough
Does that show that I'm not giving up?

I'm not so sure
Now the hope is kicking in

It scares the shit out of me
Now I have to try
We'll just wait and see

We can make it through
But we've still got work to do
I swear that I can change
I can use my fucking brain

Just this once, I'll prove to you
I'm not so fucking dumb
I can see this through
Track Name: Shit Apples, Randy
We're not the same ol' kids we know we used to be
Still fucking up but not as free
We're getting older but none the wiser
Just a little more naive

Holding on to a past we can't remember
Holding on to memories I never asked for

Smoked the last ten years right out my fuckin' brain
If they're coming back, can we skip the pain?
The better times are what we're all about
Does growing up mean selling out?

Holding on to a past we can't remember
Holding on to memories I never asked for

We're holding on to broken dreams
Another faded memory
We're holding on to our past
