Track Name: Heart Attack
It's much too good to last.
You're far too good to wait.
This time, I think I'll pass.
Get past the masquerade.

It's you with your face in the crowd.
It's you who's stabbed in the back.
Nothing new, You're a Heart Attack.
Nothing new. There's no way back, No way back.

Everyone's high class.
It's nothing new,
They're here to over act.
The highest crime to know that you've been had.
Wasted time, a life spent chasing fads.

It's you with your face in the crowd.
It's you who's stabbed in the back.
Nothing new, You're a Heart Attack.
Nothing new. There's no way back, No way back
Track Name: Photograph
PHOTOGRAPH [ b e l l s I n t r o ]

You could be around,
You couldn’t be real!
You could be weather-battled better
With every deal.

You could be a rock.
You couldn't beat steel.
You hold your: status, handout, head-up.
Are you for real?

Photograph.
They like your Photograph.
It's like you feel. You feel.


Vs2. We own this town.
So we can chase tail!
You couldn’t be real? ___________brk.
Fill the crack.
It's like you sewed it up.
…and you would feel! Feel! Feel!
…at night you’re fine.

Photograph.
It’s like your Photograph.
It’s like you feel. It’s like you feel. You feel appeal.


Vs3. Bring to light.
What you study now.
If you were real! Real! Real!
It’s GOOD to be alive!

Your Photograph.
It’s like your Photograph.
It’s like you feel. You feel appeal.
Track Name: Half Of The Past
lyrics
Open Fire, The breach is blown.
Tell your Captain I'm going home.
Your whole life in a magazine,
No one here can clearly see.

Half of the Past, we'll never need.
We make it last. We'll make it bleed.
Blacken my eyes from your second-hand smoke.
Taking our lives from the cutting room floor.
This is our show.

What feeds the body, frees the soul.
Now I'm starving, lost control.
Breaking the back with you're life at full speed.
Take off the mask for the world to see.

Half of the Past, we'll never need.
We make it last. We'll make it bleed.
You can survive on the second hand smoke.
Taking our lives from the cutting room floor.
This is our show. Come out and see.


Half of the Past, we'll never need.
We make it last. We'll make it bleed.
Just one more time for your second hand smoke.
Taking our lives from the cutting room floor.
This is our show.
Track Name: Downtown
"Downtown”

[lyrics]

Break, I could hardly break
Through these walls you’ve made
Shift and shapes don’t make things better.
Say, every time you say,
It’s always the same way –
And now you’re bitter.

And your green eyes seem to say
that you could wear me out.
But you softly slide away
when we are Downtown.
Downtown

Make. Make those things you say,
make them go away.
In your eyes you seem to promise.
See, you could be like me,
drink too much to see
now I'm honest.

And your green eyes seem to say
that you could wear me out.
But you softly slide away
when we are Downtown.
Are we here to play your games?
Is that what you're about?
And you slowly slide away
when we are Downtown.


Here we are, we're the youth.
Here we are with the truth.
in you.
in you.
Track Name: Ghost Inside Your House
Open your mouth,
nothing comes out.
Your eyes could tell the story.
Three blocks away,
the place where you stay….
You tell me, then,
you show me.

It's too late to turn back now.
We've all had our ups and downs.
The ghost inside your house … will never come back..

You hope and pray, there'll be a day, you lead your life less boring.
Take what you've found, with out making a sound,
I'll keep you safe till morning.

It's too late to turn back now. You know I won't let you down.
The ghost inside your house………..will never come back..
Track Name: Locked To Your Own
Deep Down in your room,
...been locked to your own.
into, into, into,
your, hollow hole.

Into, your own, Division.

Into Life we're thrown,
Funny Response,
I was just your,
First on the run.
In ruin………
Into Illusion.

You took control of Pride for awhile,
You'll trade your heart for denial.
I need you to ask…
Why you're so cold?

There was one fine clue.
You could, you could, be so.
Free Flow.
You'd ask him: “Where for Love would you go?”

Hey La! Hey La! Your Soul !
Why you're so cold?

Into your own Division.

Track Name: Submission
"Submission" 3:48
Music & Lyrics: Bradley Boyer

(INTRO)

(Vs. 1)

They say desire stars with the eyes, I swear, It's true.
I have been known to once or twice, give in, too soon.

(Chorus)
You make me, into a ball, you throw me, I'll hit the wall for you.
That's so true. So show me, take what you want.
So slowly, making it all come true.
Just for you.

(vs.2)
Take my heart we’ll trade this time, I fall, for you.
Surrounded by a touch divine, I give, to you.

(Chorus)

You make me into a ball, throw me, I'll hit the wall for you.
So save me with elegant font.
My lady, I'll do it all for you,
Just for you.
So show me, take what you want.
So slowly, making it all come true.
Just for you.

(Bridge)
You're so bad, I'm so into that.
You're so bad, you are, you.. are...

They say desire starts the eyes, I swear, it was true.
Track Name: Gasoline
“GASOLINE” 3:43


INTRO: A B C# B (x4) D


F# A D (x3)
You’re tank of gas is running out.
You tip the bottle to your mouth. Woah woah
Through the haze you can see.


F# E E D : A B C# B D (repeat)
What the desert does to me. To me.


[vs.2]
Your stereo is playing loud.
Heat is high, engine wound. Woah woah
Ninety miles, 1 0 3.

F# E E D : A B C# B D
It’s what the desert does to me. So serene.


[ c h o r u s ]
A E D
YOU CONTROL IT, BUT NEVER BACK DOWN.
IF YOU NOTICE, WE”RE IN THE (F#) NEXT TOWN.
AND IT”S JUST LIKE GOING, WHERE YOU CAN’T SEE.
A E D :

A B C# B (repeat)
OH, YOUR LEMONADE IS GASOLINE. So unclean

Track Name: Fallen Star
I couldn't let your days turn weeks to months.
Weathered in your rain slowly to a flood.
.....to a flood.
Imagine all the stars, falling by one by one.
I could be one?

Finally i feel so good I'm crushed. ha.
Running faster than I ever could. Ever could.
and into the stormy night it's loose my breath, bite my tongue.
this sure feels fun.

You're so pretty, when your down,
In love with the city, never coming down.
We watch the passing cars and count the friends we've found.
but I'll be around.

Now your city turns to a town
You could be so pretty, with all your friends around,
Imagine all the stars, crashing to the ground,.
I'll be around.
Track Name: Kidding Myself
. Kidding Myself .



There's nothing we want more,
than our passion underscored
'cause we need it .
An actress from New York,
and all the love adored, every weekend.

There’s no doubt, I’m Kidding Myself
… and I just found out.

You wrote the songs
I played along by your side.
not afraid . . .. afraid.

Two Hearts so strong,
one could be wrong, and you're right!
not afraid, . ...afraid.


Dear actress from New York,
and all those you’ve implored, by your sweetness.
What do we run for?
Oh. the boy next door... so you see him.


There’s no doubt. I’m Kidding Myself
… and I just found out.

You wrote the songs
I played along by your side.
not afraid, afraid.

Two Hearts so strong,
One could wrong, and you’re right.. Right?
not afraid, afraid.


Each time you fall,
I’m wise to call it a lie. Right?
We’ve come and gone,
I’ve loved you longer in life.
Track Name: Fake Hello's and "How Are You's" - feat.Asheira
Let me show you what makes me better.
Old Photographs, me and you,
Fake Hello's and "How are you's"

Take off our masks.
No more hide and seek.

Turn off my phone.
Say this tactfully. Say this tactfully.
I want you to know!
I need your breathe you.
I want you to know!
I hate that I love you.
and Baby please don't go.
Let's take it slow.
I want you to know, I need you.

Let me show you what makes me better.
Fill the cracks with memories.
Write them down to melodies.
Put on our masks.
Time for Hide and Seek.

Turn on my phone.
Say this tactfully.
Say it again, and again, and again, and again.

I want you to know!
I need you, breathe you.
I want you to know!
I hate that I love you.
and Baby please don't go,
let's take it slow.
I want you to know, I need you so.

.
Track Name: Bizarre Love Triangle
Every time I think of you
I feel shot right through with a bolt of blue
It's no problem of mine
it's a problem I find
Living a life that I can't leave behind
But there's no sense in telling me
The wisdom of the fool won't set you free
that's the way that it goes
And what nobody knows
every day my confusion grows

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can't say


I feel fine and I feel good
I'm feeling like I never should
Whenever I get this way
I just don't know what to say
Why can't we be ourselves like we were yesterday
I'm not sure what this could mean
I don't think you're what you seem
I do admit to myself
That if I hurt someone else
Then I'll never see just what we're meant to be.


Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can't say

[ b r i d g e ]

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can't say

I can't say.
