Track Name: North To South
I quit my job yesterday, came to terms with the fact I can't stay.
Looked at my town, made a change from north to south

Found a place to go, On the outskirts of town on the side of the road
Wasn't scared to start, dreams of a change were my reason to part

But it's going down and
I can't change a thing
It's ending now and
I won't win this game

Where will I go, when the bills are too high, when I can't pay the fines
Another wreck to the list, another dream to miss

'Cause it's going down and
I can't change a thing
It's ending now and
I won't win this game

Where do I go now
Where could I go now
Could I heal somehow
But it's going down, I'm still going down
Track Name: High Tides
High tides the ocean drags you closer
Untied your ambition is forward
Broke lungs a new day is a-coming
Undone a new day is a-coming

Get up put your faith in your surroundings
Have fun a cave is not a blessing
Cut down like the last tree in a forest
Last try it's okay a new days coming

So don't let your fears get in the way
'Cause Time only goes forward
Just wipe your tears and walk away
'Cause time only goes forward

Hold on so you know your life ain't over
Only half awake your on the border
Shotgun it will change your life forever
Get down I know your life ain't over

I heard that the news is full of liars
Don't be a sheep you can be better
Come on get your feet up and start moving
Have fun you know your life's for living

So don't let your fears get in the way
'Cause time only goes forward
Just wipe your tears and walk away
'Cause time only goes forward

Oh find your way for today
Cause the end might be closer
I just know you'll be okay
'Cause I know your mind is forward
'Cause I know your mind is forward
Track Name: My Dearest Friend
4 o'clock in the morning
I contemplate your toxic thirst
You exist in the day light
You exist yet you're not there

So where have you been?
Where have you been?
So where have you been?
Where have you been?

I go downtown, it doesn't feel right
I go downtown and see your face
I look right down at your shadow
Your past is filled with lethal tastes

So where have you been?
Where have you been?
Where have you been?
Where have you been?
So where have you been, my dearest friend?
So where have you been, my dearest friend?
Track Name: You Messed Up
You cut your hair with a pay check
And spend the rest on booze
You lose yourself to a new trend
You're tying your own noose

You gave up
You gave up
You gave up
You gave up

I wish the best
With whatever you try to do
But just in case if you mess up
You've got nothing to lose

You gave up
You gave up
You gave up
You messed up
You gave up
You gave up
You gave up
You gave up
Track Name: What Do You Think Of My Memory?
Trees as tall as skyscrapers overhead
I grabbed your hand and took you around the crowded bend
Bit by Mosquitos but I'd do it all again

It was cold out but we had our coats in hand
Paraded down the streets just like a marching band
You held me close and all the seems began to mend

When the clouds came storming in with
Tornados, thunder, and the lightning that scares the kids
You gave me shelter, you gave me shelter and warmth

I had met you when you were just sixteen
It was the first time you could go out and be free
I didn't know that, didn't know I was in your dreams

You fell hard but I was out of sync
Saying no that you were not the one for me
You grabbed some lenses, grabbed some lenses to help me see

When the clouds came storming in with
Tornados, thunder, and the lightning that scares the kids
You gave me shelter you gave me shelter and warmth

Nights in the car with the moonlight on your face
We're there for hours but I know it's not a waste
We're there for hours and I don't want to go home
Track Name: Cancer
I was looking for jobs at the news stand
I was sipping a Jones from a glass can
I was traveling the world searching for your hand
I was looking for you to finish my plan

'Cuz everything gives you cancer and
Nobody has an answer but
That's okay just for me
'Cuz I won't be here forever and
I need you to be the one
Before I die
Before I die

You were making me more eccentric
But we were making the moment so electric
You were so much more than I expected
I can't shake the feeling I'm getting infected

'Cuz everything gives you cancer and
Nobody has an answer but
That's okay just for me
'Cuz I won't be here forever and
I need you to be the one
Before I die
Before I die

Everything gives you cancer and
Nobody has an answer but
That's okay just for me
'Cuz I won't be here forever and
I need you to be the one
Before I die
Before I die
Track Name: Give Me A Pill
Give me a pill
I need something to dull the pain
Give me a thrill
I need something to distract me
Where have you gone
My friend that's all I ask
You flew away
From here so far away

Now I feel okay once again
Now I found alright once again

Shot in the head
With tears falling down
A friend of a friend
You were someone else

And I feel you here all the time
And I want you here all the time
Track Name: Overgrown
Slip on my old shoes then I slip on out the door
Didn't plan where I was going didn't plan it out before
Came upon your path came upon an adventure
Got a little lost got a little bit unsure

now I need some help I can't resolve this on my own
Do I take the route that's clear or where the grass is overgrown

Now I'm at this new now I'm at this new fork in the road
Don't remember how I got here don't remember what I should have
known
Can't decide now can't decide on where to go
Should've stopped myself should have stopped when the path narrowed

now I need some help I can't resolve this on my own
Do I take the route that's clear or where the grass is overgrown

*whistle*

If I choose the road choose the road less traveled by
Will it make all the difference will it matter when we say goodbye
If I choose the road choose the road less traveled by
Will it make all the difference will it matter when we say goodbye
Track Name: Clouded Vision
Come on
And give me your attention
I'm on my knees
I'm throwing you're not catching

I've been away
Far too long
Now you can't see me
Now you can't see me

I'll give anything
So you could see me

When the night fades away
And I'm the only one in your sights
The only one in your sights
Why can't you see me still
Am I trapped in the shadows
Or are you're eyes clouded by a made up mind

When the night fades away
And I'm the only one in your sights
The only one in your sights
Why can't you see me still
Am I trapped in the shadows
Or are you're eyes clouded by a made up mind
