Track Name: Nobody's Home
I just got home a month ago
It seems like everything that made this place seem just like home
Retracted somewhere far unknown.

I still wake up alone,
With my eyes glued to my cell phone
Tell my self I gotta go for broke
Until I figure all this out.

And now most days I sleep in, and I write about the weekend
And now two years later I'm doing alright.
But all my friends are leaving, wasting all the time that we spend.
I've never really been one for goodbyes.

Joey lasted ten months longer than anybody asked
I spent six months of my last semester waiting to get back
I wish I knew that I was coming home to a ghost town
'Cuz I couldn't handle one more let down.

Most nights i write about doing it wrong,
Now all i got left is a notebook of songs,
So i lay in my bed because everyone's gone
And I heard what you said.

But I guess I was wrong,
I guess I was wrong.
Track Name: The Current
My therapy is your disease
But you won't find me on my knees
Because the fights won't end and this pain won't stop.

I want to say I'm sorry
But I guess that means I'm not
I'm swimming in the current but this time I got caught.

I slip away
To the sound of all I know dissipate.
I'll take the screaming for the chance to retaliate
I can't explain myself
In this California sun
It hasn't rained for months

I'll never be far enough away from you
I'm ungrateful and worthless man but hey, that's nothing new
You haven't seen a mirror in a long damn time,
I'm trying to get over myself, but this is all that I can find

I slip away
To the sound of all that I know dissipate.
I'll take the screaming for the chance to retaliate
(I'm sick of all these head trips)

Because the 12th round is finally over
And no one has had enough.
Maybe we're just getting older
Maybe that's not good enough
Track Name: Out of Mind
I wish that you'd say anything
I think I lost myself
All this silence sounds like panic
And you look like someone else

Memories jump out at me
Like I just had a bad dream
i can see this static overtaking everything

And you're eyes
Reveal far more than they should
I guess this time
I won't have to say goodnight
All the traffic lights
Wont mean shit to you
I shouldn't be surprised

I've been driving out to Grizzly Peak
Just to see if it's the same as it used to be
I remember being right here and watching the lights
Where you told me that you loved me but I knew that you lied
Because I was younger then
And in over my head

And you're eyes
Reveal far more than they should
I guess this time
I won't have to say goodnight
All the traffic lights
Wont mean shit to you
I shouldn't be surprised

If we we're alone,
Do you think that we'd be okay
Because I used to know you
But you're just not the same

If we we're alone
Would we be okay
Because I used to know you
But you're nowhere near the same

If we we're alone
Do you think that we'd be okay?

If we we're alone
If we we're alone
If we we're I hope that we'd be okay
Track Name: Drive Safely
I'm banking on memories of dimly lit freeway because brake lights remind me of you
I'm feeling sideways with all this behind me, I'm still figuring out what to do
I fall back on routine in the hopes this might mean
Something to someone who just isn't you
I wish I could be what you think that you see but it's just not that easy to do

This drive shouldn't seem so long
My desire to leave shouldn't be this strong
Nothing you say is gonna keep my calm,
Because you told me that everything is wrong

So I left under streetlights,
But I watched them all slip away
And now I'm chasing daylight,
And I'm wondering, "Why am I still awake?"

I'm banking on memories of dimly lit freeway because brake lights remind me of you
I'm feeling sideways with all this behind me, I'm still figuring out what to do

The start of the year marked the end of September
And two fucking years that I barely remember
From holding back tears, to losing my temper
Because having you here only adds to the pressure
Of trying not to make that mistake
And holding my breath on the shit that you say
Wishing you wouldn't talk that way
I wish you wouldn't talk that way

I'm banking on memories of dimly lit freeway because brake lights remind me of you
I'm feeling sideways with all this behind me, I'm still figuring out what to do
And I fall back on to routine again
And I fall back on days that I need to forget

I'm writing away all the late nights
Since you told me you had to leave
And banking on memories of brake lights
And I'm losing my mind trying to sleep

And banking on memories of all of those late nights
And I'm losing my mind trying to sleep
