Track Name: When It All Goes Down
When It All Goes Down

Verse 1 No one's going home tonight,
we'll be alright here side by side.
We should have another round and talk all night.

We don't care who's listening
because we know this means something
and we all know this world's an ugly place.

Chorus When it all goes down,
can you see we're still around?

Verse 2 Someone said you'll all die young.
We said we hoped so, it's been fun.
I hope we never learn how to be like them.

What we know is what you can't teach.
We all went to punk rock university
so close your books and join us on the road.

Chorus When it all goes down,
can you see we're still around?

Chorus When it all goes down,
can you see we're still around?
Track Name: If The Camels Die, We Die
If The Camels Die, We Die

Verse 1 Did we come this far only to turn around
and go back to where we started from?
And even if we did, why does it still make this much sense?
Because we're doing everything we can?

Chorus These endless sleepless nights
are bound to keep us alive
and we got to keep moving on.

Verse 2 After countless sighs of frustration,
we know that this has turned into an obsession.
We're doing everything we can.

Chorus These endless sleepless nights
are bound to keep us alive
and we got to keep moving on.

Bridge We got to keep moving on.
Track Name: A Way With Words
A Way With Words

Verse 1 I have a way with ways of escape
but only you can save me from myself.
I won't even try to put you on
and see if you'd mind.

Chorus A way with words.
You analyze my dreams.
Dead on.

Verse 2 You could call it love if you really wanted
but half the time I don't know what's going on.
I won't even try to lie to myself
and see if you'd mind.

Chorus A way with words.
You analyze my dreams.
Dead on.

Bridge Dead On

Chorus A way with words.
You analyze my dreams.
Dead on.
Track Name: On The Town
On The Town

Verse 1 Hey, I was trying to be the one
in this forsaken town that has some fun
because it's all that I can do.

Verse 2 I'm only trying to be a friend
when this fucked town comes to an end
because it's all that I can do.

Chorus I do believe that we'll survive somehow
and I'll save you from yourself if you want me to.

Verse 3 Hey, I was trying to get things done
And I was a friend to everyone.

Chorus I do believe that we'll survive somehow
and I'll save you from yourself if you want me to.

Bridge So I will try to save you from yourself.
Track Name: Be Better Than Me
Be Better Than Me

I've just lost my best friend.
I've just lost your helping hand.
I need to find a way out
of my own skin.

I hope you'll be what you’ve always wanted to be.
I hope you see that you still mean so much to me.
I hope you'll be what you’ve always wanted to be.
Be better than me.

I need to find a reason
not to sleep all day.

I hope you'll be what you’ve always wanted to be.
I hope you see that you’ve always meant a lot to me.
I hope you'll be what you’ve always wanted to be.
Be better than me.
Track Name: Skinny & Distracted
Skinny And Distracted

Verse The colors all fade around me.
My view is smoky and desaturated.
I used to love the way we were
back when winters were still haunting and blue.

Bridge I'm lonely but not alone.
I'm skinny and distracted.
I'll be happy to hold back the tears
because I haven't cried in years.

Chorus 1 I don't feel like me anymore.
I swallowed my anxieties and they've turned me inside out.
I'm no longer waiting for you to call
because I know you'll make me whole again.

Chorus 2 I loved you from your hat to shoes,
I miss you more than severed limbs.
I want to sleep, I don't want to dream.
I'd rather be thin than famous.

Bridge I'm lonely but not alone.
I'm skinny and distracted.
I'll be happy to hold back the tears
because I haven't cried in years.

Chorus 1 I don't feel like me anymore.
I swallowed my anxieties and they've turned me inside out.
I'm no longer waiting for you to call
because I know you'll make me whole again.

Chorus 2 I loved you from your hat to shoes,
I miss you more than severed limbs.
I want to sleep, I don't want to dream.
I'd rather be thin than famous.
Track Name: One That Can See
One That Can See

Verse 1 This really feels real to me and I'm fed up with doing pointless things.
I don't understand why I should do what they do
and what everybody does. In a world where everyone's asleep,
I want to wake up and be in their dreams.

Chorus I guess I've said this before
but I can take it no more.
It's nothing I can ignore,
it's what I'm doing this for.

Verse 2 This is not a game we play. They want us to reproduce and obey.
I'm not a gambler and that's something I'll never be.
I hear everybody is but it's gambling without the risks.
Why am I scared to start my own family?

Chorus I guess I've said this before
but I can take it no more.
It's nothing I can ignore,
it's what I'm doing this for.

Bridge I guess what it comes down to is,
pack your bags and try your best to get away.

Chorus I guess I've said this before
but I can take it no more.
It's nothing I can ignore,
it's what I'm doing this for.
Track Name: Stay Down Stay Strong
Stay Down Stay Strong

Verse 1 I'm at the bottom.
This sinking ship is my home.
The drinks keep floating
and I don't really care.

Did I meet you yesterday
or two weeks ago?
I don't know.

Chorus 1 Stay down, stay strong.
Am I the one?

Verse 2 You walk like a dancer.
I see your face everywhere.
You act like a chancer
and I fell victim to you.

I'm a drunkard
that never learned to be old.

Chorus 2 Stay down, stay strong.
Am I the one?
Am I to blame
(Try getting over me.)
for everything you did.

Chorus 2 Stay down, stay strong.
Am I the one?
Am I to blame
(Try getting over me.)
for everything you did.
Track Name: Kitchen-Sink Drama
Kitchen-Sink Drama

Verse 1 Has everybody gone insane now?
This is everything I know and love,
so don't ruin this. I'm fucking pissed.

Why is no one talking to me?
Why is everybody talking about me
when I'm not around?

Chorus You people say I'm not that smart
and that it's dumb to be in love with this
but I have a conscious mind and I feel fine.

I would never tell you
what I believe you should or shouldn't do,
so please could you do the same for me?

I know we're smart.
Do come around.

Verse 2 Has everybody gone insane now?
This is everything I know and love,

Do come around.

Bridge Will you let me in?
I'm coming home.

Track Name: 30 Pills
30 Pills

Verse 1 When he was young, he did most of the silly things that we all do but
how could he have guessed that someday screwing around would be his doom?

Bridge 1 He has been diagnosed HIV positive
ten years ago come next June.
Ten years in hell.

Chorus He takes more than thirty pills a day
and some only to prevent side-effects.
So many pills and no cure in sight.
Everyday it gets harder to hold on.

Verse 2 Our society gave up on him and says he can only blame himself
for drug abuse and sharing needles and homosexuality.

Bridge 1 He has been diagnosed HIV positive
ten years ago come next June.
Ten years in hell.

Chorus He takes more than thirty pills a day
and some only to prevent side-effects.
So many pills and no cure in sight.
Everyday it gets harder to hold on.

Bridge 2 We could make it easier for him
and show him he belongs.

Bridge 1 He has been diagnosed HIV positive
ten years ago come next June.
Ten years in hell.

Chorus He takes more than thirty pills a day
and some only to prevent side-effects.
So many pills and no cure in sight.
Everyday it gets harder to hold on.
Track Name: Still I Persist
Still I Persist

Verse 1 The names and places might have changed
but still the faces remain the same.
I've said this a million times before
and still I'm saying it once more.

Bridge 1 I haven't changed.
I haven’t changed.

Verse 2 I wrote this song to feel alive,
to stay awake and to keep in touch.
My mind is clearer now
because I wrote this one for myself.

Chorus 1 And I'll try to stay awake.
I guess I'm ok when I'm alone.

Chorus 2 So I drink my life away
and try to be someone I'm not
but still I know that there's
a place I can call home.

I was told that I wouldn't get far
but still I always knew better
because I know a place
I can call home.

Bridge 2 Nothing has changed.
Nothing has changed.

Chorus 2 Still your eyes shine so bright tonight.
Still I'm longing for your arms.
Track Name: You Are My Friend
You Are My Friend

Verse 1 You've been here before and now you're here again.
You keep coming back because you're my best of friends.
Don't you wonder why we hardly speak of this?

Bridge You are my friend.

Verse 2 You call me up to see what I'm up to.
I tell you I'd like to spend some time with you
and that not much has every felt this right before.

Bridge You are my friend.

Chorus I wonder if all of this is over.

Chorus I wonder if all of this is over
and there you are, my friend.
