Track Name: Better Off
Don’t you think you’re better off
Don’t you think you’re better off
You cried your life away
Thinking of mistakes
But they’re gone in seconds flat

Doesn’t anybody let you be
Doesn’t anybody let you grieve
You break your back to try
And make sure everyone sees

Doesn’t anybody let you be
Doesn’t anybody let you be
Doesn’t anybody let you grieve
You break your back to try
And make sure everyone sees

Better off
Track Name: Blankin
All everything that I feel
Tried, but I move in a circle
A man standing shadowy real
Live, gold in a halo
I’m looking back at the world
Why? I’m trying to save it
Remember when you’re cutting a deal
Light, know how to save it

I see you back on your heels
Wiped, looking dejected
Everything you wanted to feel
Spite, know how to fake it
I’m looking back on the world
Why? I couldn’t take it
Remember what you wanted to feel
Right (Psych!)
You couldn’t make it either

When the go gets tough,
When it all gets rough
I wanted you to remember something
remember something

But I’m blankin on it right now

I’m being dragged through the day
No no expectations
Everything I wanted to say
I’m lost in a basic
Hell if you’re wondering why
I’m running in place, it’s
Hell if you wanted to try
But if not, then it’s not in your way then either

When the go gets tough,
When it all gets rough
I wanted you to remember something
remember something

But I’m blankin on it right now
Track Name: Weight
You don’t know the weight of it all
Oh I tried to give you something you can hold
You don’t know the weight of it all
Oh I turned to tell you the second you were gone

Fell awake
I don’t know
Stay up late
I let go
Fell asleep
Woke up late
I’m not ready
I don’t care
Oh my god
I got got
I got hate
I got something
In my way
I don’t know
If I got
What it takes
I’m not ready
Blow away renegade

You don’t know the weight of it all
Oh I tried to give you something you can hold
You don’t know the weight of it all
Oh I turned to tell you the second you were gone
Track Name: Always
Hollow
Heard you from the hallway
Hallway
Always
Up against it always
Always
Hollow
Saw you lookin outward
Outward
Always
Hear you when you whisper
Always

Always

When you
met me did you like me
like me
Or were you
only keeping busy
busy
Hollow
Every time you touched me
Touched me
Always
Keeping something from me
Yeah from me

Always
Track Name: Blur Goes By
Boy in blue, a blur goes by
Young and in control
Boy in glow of traffic light
Young and doesn’t know

Don’t talk to me
Don’t touch me, don’t think I’m fine
Don’t meet my eyes

Boy in blue, a blur goes by
Young and on a stage
He’s gotta tie down everything
Before it blows away

Don’t talk to me
Don’t touch me, don’t think I’m fine
Don’t meet my eyes
Track Name: Disappointment
If you really are
Jesse stand against a neon skyline
And turn into stars
Jesse melting into neon lights again
A void in the dark
People peeking into every corner
The core of your heart
Jesse flickering in every window

I don’t wanna know
My problems getting wickeder
And everything goes
I can’t take the disappointment

If you really are
Something real that I can reach out and touch
And find in the dark
Look like diamonds when the sun is out or not
If you’re really here
Maybe I can finally disappear
It’s always the same
I get stuck, I’m on a one-way train

I don’t wanna know
My problems getting wickeder
And everything goes
I can’t take the disappointment
Track Name: Harrison Ford
Line walker
Straight talker
A main man
World holder
But on your shoulder
A heavy hand

And you look like a young Harrison Ford
What are you worried about?
Why don’t you see that?
And you look like you shouldn’t have to try
Yeah but you worry yourself sick regardless of that

You tried to move
You couldn’t do it
You just stood there
We gathered around you
We cheered you on
You didn’t care

And you look like a young Harrison Ford
What are you worried about?
Why don’t you see that?
And you look like you shouldn’t have to try
Yeah but you worry yourself sick regardless of that
Track Name: Something That I'm Missing
And when you see my face
I hope you stop in your tracks
And when you hear my voice
I hope it makes you collapse

Well, obviously there’s something that I’m missing
I’ve never figured it out

And when you make your tapes
I hope you make em for me
And when you think of someone
Hope you’re thinking of me

Obviously there’s something that I’m missing
I’ve never figured it out

(It’s uncontrollable and...)
(It’s unavoidable and...)

There’s something that I’m missing
I’ve never figured it out
Well, obviously there’s something that I’m missing
I’ve never figured it out
Track Name: Shaking Hands
Shaking hands with the company man again
I was young, now I am older
Shaking hands with the company man again
I was strong, now I’m a soldier

When you go home, you can wait for me
When you grow old, you can wait for me
When you go home, you can wait for me
When you grow old, sit and wait for me

Shaking hands with the company man again
I was young, now I am older
Shaking hands with the company man again
Used to burn, now I just smolder

When you go home, you can wait for me
When you grow old, you can wait for me
When you go home, you can wait for me
When you grow old, sit and wait for me
