Track Name: Move Along
Another trip around the sun
And I'm so glad that year is done.
Good times were had, but my lesson's learned:
I won't let myself get burned like that again.
Cuz it's the dice that you roll, it's the rules that you bend,
Sometimes you lose your heart, sometimes you lose a friend,
But you never lose yourself, "you'll never die until you die."
Yea? Well if I have another year like that I'll be fried.

Another year like that and I'll be fried,
Waking up every day with that stitch in my side.
Tell you what, I'm tired of running marathons
Back to days that are long since gone.

Cuz we thought we had it all and then it slipped away
There's no pain involved, all there is to say is
Move along, move along, move along.

I was pretty bitter, I was pretty pissed,
The way we both imagined things was not like this.
Now, time's gone on and I see those days had their place
We'll never get them back; they'll never get replaced.

I used to wish things were the way things were,
But we both know they're not, that's one thing for sure.
Time's moving forward, don't get left behind;
Don't worry about me I'll be fine.
Track Name: Bad With Names
I'm glad we met
I'm glad we met
We had a bond, we had our time
We've all gotta look for what we need to find
And you never know how life's gonna go
The next time I see ya could be after the show,
The last time I saw ya you were walking away
And life hasn't been the same since.

I'm glad we met
I'm glad we met
Moving on ahead is the best and the worst
Someday there will be no more goodbyes.
And you never know how life's gonna go
The next time I see ya could be after the show,
The last time I saw you you were walking away
And life hasn't been the same since.

Moving on ahead is the best and the worst.
Someday there will be no more goodbyes.
I listened to every single word.
Every word will change your life.
Track Name: Sidewalk Slams
Now it feels like forever ago
Before reality slowed us down and showed us where to draw the line.
Space bags and stolen bottles
When GG was our role model, and I can't believe I made it out alive.

I found the back of a matchbook in the back of my car
Where we all wrote our names on the back of the card
Days like these, I lose track of my time
And they'll never leave my mind.

From Heritage Square to Wheeler Park
And all those tunnels in the dark, drinking Night Train and writing on the walls
Drinking forties in the bathroom stalls, ignoring all of our mom's calls,
Like "Kids" without the AIDS and punk rock shows instead of raves,
I guess it's really not the same now looking back.

We did our best
Smoke it down to the filter
I'll never ever forget;
We'll never ever forget

I remember when we were in the back of my car
Singing "we're the coolest kids and we'll take what we can get"
Days like these I know who I am
And they'll never leave my mind.
Track Name: Peoplecore
(I) Gotta look this hard in the eyes,
Confront myself, and be honest.
A year from now I don't know where I'll be
Tell you what I've got today:

Here we are again
Where everyone's singing, everyone's singing along
Together strong.
And I can't shake the thought,
I can't shake the thought,
I can't shake the thought
That this is where I belong.

All I need is a place to go off.
People search their whole lives and they come up with nothing.
Reality is trying hard to interrupt,
But I'll never give this up

I've got so much to say.
No one else knows the words; they're written on my chest.
I know them best.
They're written on my heart.
They're written on my heart.
They're written on my heart.
This is where I can speak.

(They say) You've got to give this up
And I can't believe I ever thought that was an option
Track Name: The Last Thing I Need
How many times must I repeat myself?
I have no more excuses: this is the way I live.
For everything I've done I take responsibility
And maybe someday this will all catch up to me.
Just like you said, "I'm so short-sighted, I can't see five years beyond"
Tell you what, in five years I'll be so far beyond this place.

So the last thing I need is your negativity
It sucks that we only agree to disagree.
The last thing I need is your negativity.

How many times must I prove myself to you?
Some days I really don't think I have.
I listen to what you say and follow your advice,
It seems you almost always end up right.
But this ain't playing at the future, this is how I spend my time:
How can you fault me for making every minute mine?

You know that I listen, but I hope you know I care.
If there's one thing you taught me, it's to be self aware,
These days I'm opening my eyes and learning to see
And the last thing I need is your negativity.
Track Name: Stick Around Awhile
I take a look back to clear my head
And see all the things I should have done instead (I wish I didn't doubt myself, I wish)
A choice I made so long ago
Where I went from walking tall to falling low.
And that choice you make so consciously
Will distort itself obnoxiously in time.
Everyone will tell you I was nothing short of lost;
I look back and wonder at the cost.

I learn the hard way (but I never ran when I should've stayed)
Always stand strong

I live inside of this memory
Of who I was and who I wanted to be (I wish I didn't doubt myself, I wish)
A second gone and the choice is made
And now you're begging for a trade.
But these days I start to realize
It's not who I was, it's that I tried to live.
Everyone will tell you I was nothing short of lost;
I look back in wonder at the cost.

I learn the hard way (but I never ran when I should've stayed)
Always stand strong.

You look back and laugh, well, I look back and see a kid
Who bent himself so out of shape it's a wonder he's alive today.
Isn't it funny how we keep on living after the story's told?
In the end we made it -- In the end we made it.
