Track Name: End of the Line
Ask yourself one more question
About the life you live
I’ll give you a half-assed answer brother
What else could you expect from this

Been a while now since we’ve braved the weather
On the summit monument
Now we're struggling and frustrated
What else could you expect from this

End of the line boy end of the line
Standing in the dark where your left bored and blind
End of the line boy end of the line
Where all your hopes and dreams they leave you behind

You're all messed up hungover as hell
Worries and rage fill your mind
Well you better brush up cause it don’t get no better at the end of the line

End of the line boy end of the line
Standing in the dark where your left bored and blind
End of the line boy end of the line
Where all your hopes and dreams they leave you behind
Track Name: In Revelry
Here again out in the streets alone walking home
I don’t know how I ever make it back alive

“Just one more”, turns into three or four
“What the hell, I’ll stay out drowning with you all night”
We’ll sing our drinking songs
Laugh till we break our lungs
We will forget consequences tonight

And in this revelry we live until the end
No compromise this time the world meets our demands

Pull the covers over anchor eyes
It’s no surprise that I feel like a train wreck tumbling’ once again

Nights like these never cease
I’m amazed I could ever... ever breathe again
We will sleep when we’re dead
Right now we’re rallying’
We will forget consequences tonight

And in this revelry we live until the end
No compromise this time the world meets our demands

We will sleep when we’re dead
Right now we’re rallying’
We will forget consequences tonight
And in this revelry we live until the end
Track Name: Highway to the Sun
It's been ten long years since I've eased my mind
Every time I come up, I just can't unwind
I wake up with only two short hours of sleep
and no rewards for us to reap

Just another endless cycle I find myself in
Can't hold it together without crashing in
The world is closing around my soul
I just need to find a little escape
I just need to stop staying out late

Drivin' down the east coast
Lookin' for something couldn't get at home
I hope to find it down along the road
On the highway to the sun

I've been talkin' to a good friend of mine
We've been shooting the shit, workin' out every line
Plotting our course to free, every dime taken into account

We've been hittin' the road, committing our souls
to a weeks respite tonight
We're gunna pull our weight, we're breaking out of this city
you best your ass we're gunna do it right.

Drivin' down the east coast
Lookin' for something couldn't get at home
I hope to find it down along the road
On the highway to the sun

With plans to take us far from home
Bags packed and a radio
Foot on the pedal and its go go go
On the highway to the sun

And we go and leave it all behind
we're going our own way, so we can find
just a little bit of something that could keep us around
for another day, just another week
I'm really damn tired and I need my sleep
Justa little break, just a little flight
Is gunna take me through the night

Drivin' down the east coast
Lookin' for something couldn't get at home
I hope to find it down along the road
On the highway to the sun

With plans to take us far from home
Bags packed and a radio
Foot on the pedal and its go go go
On the highway to the sun
Track Name: Stuck in New York City
I was born in the city
No one could take that from me
but I found some comfort by the beach

I grew up by the water
I began to adore her
But now I’m dragged back to the street

I’ve been around for a long long time
playing clubs and filling up my head
With learned facts from righteous men who’d
probably be better off dead

Now I’m stuck here in the city
and it ain’t looking pretty
on my own alone without a friend
These towers are erasing the life anticipated
full of melancholy cigarettes

Been growing for a long time
with all those lessons in my mind
I’m finding it hard to keep steady
My hands are shaking
My nerves are quaking
and I was born ready

Told by a wise one one day that I’d find one
A home in this jungle of sin
Man you're a liar, my only desire
is to find my way again

Now I’m stuck here in the city
and it ain’t looking pretty
on my own alone without a friend
These towers are erasing the life anticipated
full of melancholy cigarettes

Because This town is full of hypocrites who are bleeding at the seams
running loop around your head and leave you
drunk and shouting blasphemy
You try to stand above it all like one of those enlightened
but you're tied down by chains and
realize that’s just how it goes
Track Name: Everything We're Not
Pour Another Shot
Fill my beer up to the top
tonight we're going out

My boss is a creep and you spent all week on your feet
But we're not thinking about work tonight

We storm through this weather (woah-oh)
And now we're free to do anything want
Stay out all night together
And we'll celebrate everything we're not

(We're no longer) 22
and my gray hair stands as proof
We've lived through ups and downs
You look perfect in that dress, and I can't wait to see what's next
We’re gonna’ paint this town in Red

We storm through this weather
And now we're free to do anything want
Stay out all night together
And we'll celebrate everything we're not

We storm through this weather
And now we're free to do anything want
Stay out all night together
And we'll celebrate everything we're not
