Track Name: Tired Of Waiting
Here we go again
Another leading light on who we can't depend
So we close our eyes
Hold our breath and wait
For one more sign that this won't be our fate
You can try
All you can
But you're never going to understand
All we want is

One more night, one last wish
One more day
We're just tired of waiting
For our lives to be dismissed
One more day
We're just tired of waiting

We're just stuck in between
The words we've given up
And the ones we've taken for ourselves
So we hold our breath and wait
For a chance to change our fate
Ignoring all the lies you sell and
Walking straight through hell
You can try
All you can
But you're never going to understand
All we want is

One more night, one last wish
One more day
We're just tired of waiting
For our lives to be dismissed
One more day
We're just tired of waiting

So we hold on to your lies

One more night, one last wish
One more day
We're just tired of waiting
For one more night, one last kiss
One more day
We're just tired of waiting
We're just tired of waiting
We're just tired of waiting

We're just tired of waiting
We're just tired of waiting
Track Name: Goodbye Baby Rabbits
Last night, as I was barely sleeping
Your light was coming through in pieces
And I don't know why, I don't know why
So take this any way you want it
I'm not one to keep a secret
I like you, I like you

You can write this down or write me off
I never quite know when to stop
The winter's changing into spring again
And we're about to begin

My heart is barely beating
And I don't know where this is leading
And I don't know why, I don't know why
But I'm gonna try, I'm gonna try
'Cause I like you, I like you
Track Name: Narcoleptic
Bored again, this is beginning to be a habit
Been forming opinion before acceptance
Of your newer value system
Been downing our afterhours
Along with every drink in sight
Of the latest fashion trend
That I'll never understand
Again

Drunk again on everything I didn't get to
Tell you, one by one they line up asking
Why I'm here
Don't say I'm insincere
This bottle's long ago since emptied
And the temperature went down an hour ago
I stood up and declared
My love for what's not there

And I'd break the arms for everyone
If it would lead me to your bed
And get me inside your head
And I'd take every last drop of this sea
If it would help me understand
Or let me fall asleep instead
In a different bed

Say that again?
I must have dozed off in between
The first verse and the second chance
To get you away from me
So this is the end of everything we had
Appropriate it seems
to me that from the bar room floor
Everything's the same to me
Everything is the same to me

And I'd break the arms for everyone
If it would lead me to your bed
And get me inside your head
And I'd take every last drop of this sea
If it would help me understand
Or let me fall asleep instead
In a different bed
Track Name: Hurricane You
Where did we go, what did we do
How did I end up here with you
With gun in my hand and blood on my breath
Two warrants, a good chance for arrest
I find myself gagged up and bound
Metaphorically to your point of view
Is this a means to your wicked end
Or have I taken the fall again for you

Sober and simple, afraid of a friend
I trip over words and stumble to the end
Of an era to sticking to what I don't know
Would always be the trend
I call you and call you and won't ever win
Out over the silence that I can't begin
To callously discard and try to let go
As hurricane you starts to blow

I trip over sidewalks, I slam into doors
I step in traffic, my face to the floor
I'm bruised up and beaten by what I don't know
I'm cracked, I'm scarred, I'm sore
I'm twisting and turning around in the air
I'm the worst thing that happened, well at least I cared
I want you to listen, I want you to know
As hurricane you starts to blow
Track Name: John Cusack Explains It All
Found the sun that you climbed
Of your own design
The stars light patterned off of
All the new decisions you have made
Hang the sun where it stays
For the rest of your days
A cliched metaphor for
Every condescension you replayed
In your head
It's all in your head
Is it better off dead

Found the life that you craved
In the one that you saved
The scar's lights patterned off of
All the little shards upon the ground
A broken image of
All the things you loved
Are all that remained inside your head
As you fell asleep to the sound
In your head
It's all in your head

Is it better off dead
Are you better off alone
In one solitary moment
Do you wish you haven't gone
And filled your head
With every silly moment done
With useless words that don't mean anything
Can you forget about your past
Is it better off dead

Is it better off dead
Are you better off alone
In one solitary moment
Do you wish you haven't gone
And filled your head
With every silly moment done
With useless words that don't mean anything
Can you forget about your past
Is it better off dead

Is it better off dead
Are you better off alone
In one solitary moment
Do you wish you haven't gone
And filled your head
With every silly moment done
With useless words that don't mean anything
Can you forget about your past
Is it better off dead
Is it better off dead
Is it better off dead
Is it better off dead
Track Name: He's A Ghost As Far As I Know
Another November afternoon
Searching for an elusive
And unspeakable tune
Maybe I gave in to you too soon
And looked for the sun but
I found your room
Hanging outside your front door
Looking for the answer to what you swore
Was the last phone call I'd ever get before
You fell asleep in the silence
As I read my eyelids once more

So say that it's not your way
And outspoken token of my affectation
Has lead us to this day
I'll try to rise up to your eyes
But the one explanation for your salutation
Has translated as goodbye

Another November night
When I drink to the silence
Til dawn's early light
Maybe your would like to try
To crack my smile
To grin and lie
Choking on the last words that you said
I pick my battles carefully
And I keep my head
Above the waterline beside my bed
You'll never hear my voice again
Because my lungs are dead

So say that it's not your way
And outspoken token of my affectation
Has lead us to this day
I'll try to rise up to your eyes
But the one explanation for your salutation
Has translated as goodbye
Just say goodbye
Just say goodbye
Just say goodbye
