Track Name: Topshelf
The clock strikes 3AM and I find myself right here alone
Away from the comfort of my home
One More Regret!
One more bad evening spent, and I wish that it had happened with my friends!

My stuff is missing and I can't recall what happened to it
Empty pockets, empty threats
I'm down and out!
This ain't what friendship's all about
Pent up with anger, fear, and doubt!

These aren't my friends, they just pretend
Don't use me, don't use me
I can see right through your lies
You fucked me over goodbye!
Track Name: Downtown Exists
With all the beautiful things in life covered by snow
You can't live in the moment, can't go with the flow
We work all day and night to make things right but most will never know
How to let go!

The blindfold's getting tighter the blind will never see
You won't get anywhere if you don't believe;
You take your life for granted, your friends for granted, your family for granted.
Fucking let go!

Take some time to take a look at the city from this place
It's a beautiful picture, a soft spoken canvas
And you'll spend your whole life passing it by like it was never there
You're never fucking there
take some time to take a look at the city from this place
It's a beautiful picture, a soft spoken canvas
And you'll spend your whole life passing it by like it was never there
You're everything, you're going nowhere.
Track Name: Old HWY 8
We all agree, we speak in the past tense, but there's no way we can ever go back!

I wish that I could relive the days when we planted footsteps in our hometown!
We'll never forget our stomping ground!
These sidewalks burn! These trees scream memories of innocent days leading nowhere,
All these streets still know our names!

And I feel like a broken record, talking about the past
With burning hope that the memories will last!

And I have a problem with dwelling on it
There's nothing I can do about it!

When I take the long way home I think 'can my life really get any better?'
The present will soon be the past too.
So live for now! And don't take what you have for granted!
But don't ever forget your roots!

And I feel like a broken record, talking about the past
With burning hope that the memories will last!

And I have a problem with dwelling on it
There's nothing I can do about it!
Track Name: Friendly Fire
Maybe I'll never revisit this place
Maybe I'll never see your face again and all these people are telling me that it's for the better.
You took advantage of my loyalty, I forgave you, but you still don't come to our shows like you said you would
And I was hardly surprised when you forgot my birthday!

Alliances come and Alliances go
One is silver and the other's gold
I'm making new friends but why can't I keep the old
Now our memories are dust in the wind!

It seems like forever since I've heard your voice, I'm starting to come around!
And I can't help but think that you don't need me in your life.
Friends can't be recycled, you don't give a shit what happens to us.
Assuming the role doesn't work anymore
I've caught on to your tricks, you selfish...

You discard me and create strife
There's only room for one guy in your life
You're glowing smile that illuminates my soul
Has turned into an awkward smirk, an empty hole!

It seems like forever since conversation we've had over the phone.
You used my shoulder to cry on until you found another one of your own.
Now all of a sudden I became history, a thing of the past.
How stupid do you think I am? I must be a little, I thought this would last.

Your lies don't seem to make sense
My 'I Miss You' feeling is intense
Your glowing smile that illuminates my soul
Has turned into an awkward smirk, an empty hole!
An empty hole.
Track Name: I Miss Then
I can't remember when it was just you and me
My mind is slipping away like my memories
That song came on again, reminds me of those days!
When we were all the same, when we were all the same!

And It's so sad to me, these days I'm so unhappy

Our friendship's slipping away, our old life is done.
These days our paths all lead in different directions.
When we were still alive, conclusions far away!
These days I miss those days, these days I miss those days!

And it's so sad to me, these days I'm so unhappy.

I'm just a faded memory!!
Track Name: Endlessly I Hope
All these questions go unanswered, and it's eating me away.

I've got to keep growing
Feeding off knowledge and ideas
I must stay lucid in my dreams
Separate the seams

When will we go? When will this cycle end?
Repeat and repeat and again.
When we die will we find out what's past that light?
'Cause right now it sounds like lies!

We're all programmed into grooves that pave the way of all our lives
Hack your life, hack your life,
Destroy the program, and take it back!
We're all programmed into grooves that pave the way of all our lives
Hack your life! Hack your life!
Destroy the program, and take back what is yours!

Never be bored! 'Cause everything's happening right now!
And we'll never know if second chances are even an option!
So fucking live.
