Track Name: Give It Up
We’d burn this city down to watch it glow
I know that you love it
You could never give it up, give it up
When every minute that we have we stole
What I’d do to keep it
I could never give you up, give you up

What would it take for us to leave it all
Cracks in the pavement that we trace like we own this town
I’m thinking clearly or I just don’t know
The world is ending but I can’t keep my mind off of…

Hurry in this place that I don’t know
blurry in this place that I don’t know, you say what you’re thinkin’
I could never get enough, get enough
Going to my brain the chemicals
Don’t know what I’m thinking
I could never give it up, give it up

What would it take for us to leave it all
Cracks in the pavement that we trace like we own this town
I’m thinking clearly or I just don’t know
The world is ending but I can’t keep my mind off of…

Can’t keep my mind off of you

And if this is life for us, you know it’s fine with me
Track Name: When The Lights Turn Low
Our best laid plans are all we ever have
My mind is fading, time is wasting
Lately I can’t remember who I am
Come close and tell me I’m not crazy
Losing all track of sleep tonight I don’t wanna let you down
Something with me just isn’t right and I can’t make it out

Who I am right now?

So when I stay it is never long, keep calling when I need it
Tell me where does the mind go when the lights turn low?
I’m takin’ by some unholy ghost, I know you don’t believe it
Tell me where does the mind go when the lights turn low?

And I can feel these walls are closing in
Oh where have I been, maybe I have just been dreaming
Losing all track of sleep tonight I don’t wanna let you down
Something with me just isn’t right and I can’t make it
I think you wouldn’t recognize the man that I am right now
Something with me just isn’t right and I can’t make it out

Who I am right now?

So when I stay it is never long, keep calling when I need it
Tell me where does the mind go when the lights turn low?
I’m takin’ by some unholy ghost, I know you don’t believe it
Tell me where does the mind go when the lights turn low?
Track Name: Far From Now
You watch as it comes unglued
we strain to see it through
but we’ll take our chances
to hell with the answers

Hey the night is young is that enough to make you stay the one I love
cuz I know that you know there is time for us
and maybe it’s not far from now
Cuz I know that you know there is time for us
we can take it back
know I will never let you down
cuz I know that you know there is time for us

Try, keeping your head on tight
when the world’s lost its mind
they bury the lede and we may never see it

Hey the night is young is that enough to make you stay the one I love
cuz I know that you know there is time for us
and maybe it’s not far from now
Cuz I know that you know there is time for us
we can take it back
know I will never let you down
cuz I know that you know there is time for us
Track Name: Too Fast
I thought that I was on to something
But I think that you’re coming around right now
I know we can’t keep on like this anymore
Undone and fuckin’ around right now

And maybe
Count on some black magic, or spell alchemical
It’s been far too easy to lose it all
Fall for wishful thinking and tell me we’ve got time
Still I count the hours you’re mine

And we’re takin’ it a bit too fast
Taking it a bit too fast for me, oh my

Think with an academic mind and I know
That there’s just no way around, freak out
We’re nothing bigger than our bodies and how
Could we find a way out, slow down

And we’re takin’ it a bit too fast
Taking it a bit too fast for me, oh my

(We’re out of our heads)
