Track Name: Two Wheel Death Trap
Girls like you don't date guys like me
But I guess I should have read a bit more deep
Our first kiss met somewhere on the street
Wont you take me back and my two wheel death trap
But girls like you don't date guys like me
So here's to the last thing I'll try to forget
Every day since we first effing met
First freaking met
Track Name: The Sleeper Hit
You’ll remember my face
When you’ve got one foot in the grave
My charisma's on fire
Your's is burnt at the stake
Play dead
Speak
Stay
Beg for attention and do what they say

Get back

Are you listening
Get out fast
You’ll fall off the Earth
If you think that it’s flat
Trust me
You’ll never make it anywhere else
If you don’t get out of line
And take a stand for yourself

I cant believe you’d try to
List all the things I need to change
For what it’s worth, in my view
I’d rather die than live that way
This might sound harsh but it’s true
Thank god I’m nothing like you

All hope is a lie
Hopeless

This is not a discussion so
Just save your words
And you’ll save your life
For those against me
I suggest you run the other way
It’s time to
Open the floodgates

When your eyes lose sight
Open up your mind

I cant believe you’d try to
List all the things I need to change
For what it’s worth, in my view
I’d rather die than live that way
This might sound harsh but it’s true
Thank god I’m nothing like you
(Safe to say
We’re all misguided
Some might fade
But I’ll keep fighting I’m glad I can say
Thank god I’m nothing like you)
Track Name: She's Not A Paleontologist (But She Totally Digs Me)
Be my pick axe and shovel
We'll dig down to uncover some trouble.
Dust off these old bones and rubble
Let's get down in the dirt
(down in the dirt)

I'll be your perfect fossil
I'm Frozen but my heart is colossal
So lets meet down in my grave
But my bone won't behave

Dinosaurs need love so
Excavate me with what remains
More than just a fossil
All bone but no brain

She likes to study my anatomy
Getting both her hands dirty and she's
Not a paleontologist but she
Totally digs me

Let's look back at my situation
a carnivore now I'm just a crustacean
Would tear out hearts a cave-lady killer
Jurassic thriller

So here I've been, a thousand years
she dug me up, and when the dust clears
I'll be free again, released to the wild
Prehistoric love child

She likes to study my anatomy
Getting both her hands dirty and she's
Not a paleontologist but she
Totally digs me
(She's dinomite, yeah)
Tyrannosaurus Rex is her cat's name
Watches Jurassic Park to keep her sane
Not a paleontologist but she
Totally digs me

It's so insane but she totally digs (x4)

Girl you set me free
Getting both her hands dirty and she's
Not a paleontologist but she
Totally digs me
(She's dinomite, yeah)
Tyrannosaurus Rex is her cat's name
Watches Jurassic Park to keep her sane
Not a paleontologist but she
Totally digs me
Track Name: My My, Medusa
Long live the reign
Of the chick with the name
My Medusa
She'll break your heart
And leave you cold
She's a killer
But I'm bringing her home

Her eyes
They've got me petrified
That darling
Keeps her fingers on the prize
And knowing
My luck
We're the perfect match
Love story
Even if she's dynamite
I wont break without a fight

With her motives in silence
She clenches her teeth
As she waits for violence

Grab two drinks
And I head for the couches
Lights off candles on
Heart
Beats
Much faster
It wont be beating for long

If she kisses me
This is the end

Her eyes
They've got me petrified
That darling
Keeps her fingers on the prize
And knowing
My luck
We're the perfect match
Love story
Even if she's dynamite
I wont break without a fight

M-E-D-U-S-A
She is the snake and I'm the prey
M-E-D-U-S-A
My My Medusa

SHE'S A SNAKE.

M-E-D-U-S-A
She is the snake and I'm the prey
Medusa
M-E-D-U-S-A
She is the snake and I'm the prey

Her eyes
They've got me petrified
That darling
Keeps her fingers on the prize
And knowing
My luck
We're the perfect match
Love story
Even if she's dynamite
I wont break without a fight
Her eyes
They've got me petrified
That darling
Keeps her fingers on the prize
And knowing
My luck
We're the perfect match
Love story
Even if she's dynamite
I wont break without a fight
Track Name: How You Gonna Stop Us Now
Can we have your attention
I think it’s safe to mention
That we’ve managed to survive this town
So how you gonna stop us now

Back in the day it seemed like
No one ever brought up how
There’s nothing to say
But now it’s all they ever talk about
You don’t need to give me the lecture I know
We’ve driven down this road before All signs read get to the point
Screw your reasons
I know which direction to go
So stop kidding
Life’s not that pretty
I need time to run
Need time to run
And I’m willing to bet I’m not feeling alone
So we wont stop until we’re done
Despite your floating thoughts
I’ll go down on this sinking ship to show I can swim on my own

Can we have your attention
I think it’s safe to mention
That we’ve managed to survive this town
We’re not passive aggressive
I think you’ve got the message
This time there’s no turning back around
So how you gonna stop us now

Feeling all that pressure
Cause your words are falling flat
I’m a sight for sore eyes
You’re a heart attack
Don’t be amazed
I can choose
When I’m walking out this door
You can keep on looking down
While I’m on the top floor

So stop kidding
Life’s not that pretty
I need time to run
Need time to run
And I’m willing to bet I’m not feeling alone
So we wont stop until we’re done
Despite your floating thoughts
I’ll go down on this sinking ship to show
I can swim on my own

Can we have your attention
I think it’s safe to mention
That we’ve managed to survive this town
We’re not passive aggressive
I think you’ve got the message
This time there’s no coming back around
So how you gonna stop us now

Back in the day it seemed like
No one ever brought up how
There’s nothing to say
But now it’s all they ever talk about

So how you gonna stop
Track Name: Man On The Moon (feat. Eri McKenna)
I'm out dated
A victim of time
Falling apart
I've lost my mind
I've had lovers and friends
Who've all gone today
I'm stuck in this small town rotting away
Will I get out?
Will I be saved?
This cycle of life oh it eats me away
This torture
Repeating day after day
Waking up to find that we've faded away

I don't think so
No time soon
I'll pack up my bags and fly to the moon
Stay there until I miss and then
I'll come back down just to see you again

I've been missing you for a long time
I've been missing you for a long time
I've been missing you for a long time
So come home now
Come home to me

What should I do?
What should I say?
I'd find a way out but my map is blank
A screw up
A flake
I lost what I love
And no one can help me out but I know that
All I want to do is hold you
And all I need to be is with you
Cause girl you make me feel so free
I'm in love with you loving me

I've been missing you for a long time
I've been missing you for a long time
I've been missing you for a long time
So come home now
Come home to me

Cause I've been missing you for so damn long
And baby I'm just not the same
You let me go and I've lost my composure today
And I just want you to call
And I just want to feel loved again
You know sometimes I forget what it's like
To hear you say my name
But who's to blame?

I've been missing you for a long time
I've been missing you for a long time
I've been missing you for a long time
So come home now, come home to me
Track Name: Counting Cards
Match
Ignite
Dinner candlelight
Play your favorite sad song
Get us through the night
(Bang! bang!)
Set the clock
Morning's gonna suck
Time just doesn't move till the second I get off

This is the city sleeping
And we're part of the dream
If we could wake it up
Then who would even want to be free

Don't you know that

Counting cards just makes this game less interesting
We had everything until we wanted more
One day they'll look back on us and probably say
We lost everything
Like those who came before

You like
You like
You like
What you see
So forget what you've got till you've got everything
You like
You like
You like
What you touch
Even though it's all inside your hands
You can tell that it's never gonna be enough

Counting cards just makes this game less interesting
We had everything until we wanted more
One day they'll look back on us and probably say
We lost everything
Like those who came before

So we have it all
But we still want more
We still want more

Skip to the problem
Cut to the chase
Like it or not
We're all out of place

Counting cards just makes this game less interesting
We had everything until we wanted more
One day they'll look back on us and probably say
We lost everything
Like those who came before
Track Name: Mockingbirds
Long as Saturn has it's rings
And mockingbirds still sing
The sun's on cue
It's all for you
And if you're scared
I wont get back alive
I promise it's alright
I'm bulletproof
Cause I've got you

So what if
Oceans in between us
And this life isn't fair
I swear the calender lies
And I don't even care
I always knew (Home is where my heart lives)
I'm in love with you (Leave a light on don't look back)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Long as Saturn has it's rings
And mocking birds still sing
Track Name: Baby We Should Disco
Trust your eyes
We're dancing on a shooting star
Tonight
We'll be the only life on Mars
The moon hangs right above
So Earth is in the front row
Baby we should disco

Let's get astronomical
Situation's critical
I'm feeling like this might be our last chance to
Touch the sky
Come with me cause it's a two person mission
We're ready for launch
Now count it backwards with me
5, 4, 3, 2
One thing
I guess I should mention
Don't think
We'll make it back home in time
Just keep
Your sense of adventure
Don't blink
Now wave goodbye to all the satellites

Long as your system's solar
I'll be your light year
(Come on come on come on)
Let's step outside together
And when the night is over
I'll still be right here

Trust your eyes
We're dancing on a shooting star
Tonight
We'll be the only life on Mars
The moon hangs right above
So Earth is in the front row
Baby we should disco

Watch my lead
And give me your right hand
Left turn, two, three
You make it so romantic

Holding out your hand is like a live atom bomb
Cause every time you make a move
I wanna scream out this song
(Pre-chorus!)

Long as your system's solar
I'll be your light year
Come on come on come on
Let's step outside together
And when the night is over
I'll still be right here

Trust your eyes
We're dancing on a shooting star
Tonight
We'll be the only life on Mars
The moon hangs right above
So Earth is in the front row
Baby we should disco
Trust your eyes
We're dancing on a shooting star
Tonight
We'll be the only life on Mars
The moon hangs right above
So Earth is in the front row
Baby we should disco

This is the score
No matter what we gotta love what we live for
This is our time
Let's go and show the world that life is a dance floor

Hey! Hey!
(Love what you live for)
Woo!
Hey! Hey!
(Life is a dance floor)

Trust your eyes
We're dancing on a shooting star
Tonight
We'll be the only life on Mars
The moon hangs right above
So Earth is in the front row
Baby we should disco

Trust your eyes
We're dancing on a shooting star
Tonight
We'll be the only life on Mars
The moon hangs right above
So Earth is in the front row
Baby we should disco
Trust your eyes
We're dancing on a shooting star
Tonight
We'll be the only life on Mars
The moon hangs right above
So Earth is in the front row
Baby we should disco
Track Name: Happy Ending
These are the last words that you'll
Hear from me
We tried our best but now we're
History
So let the records show
We had one hell of a run now
Let's end with a victory knockout
Dead set and I'm taking my last bow
I've never been so certain that it's time to close the curtains so

Go on
Tell me that you need me
Once I'm gone
Feel free to delete these
Regrets and old photographs
Insert chorus here

Don't you ever look back on
The plans that we made
You were one in a million
Not one in the same
Say goodbye
I'm done pretending
Sorry there's no happy ending

Yo check this!
Imma try to keep in touch with you like Facebook message everyday
(Psyche!)
I don't want to listen to the same things that I've heard you say
(For five years)
Every single minute with you feels like a trap
Couldn't get the ticking of the clock
To stop me from wasting
Everything I'll never get back
So!

Go on
Tell me that you hate me
Girl I've heard it all before
I'm done
Sleeping to escape this
Life I cant ignore

Don't you ever look back on
The plans that we made
You were one in a million
Not one in the same
Say goodbye
I'm done pretending
Sorry there's no happy ending

I'll never stop (x3)

Don't cry
Girl you had this
Coming for oh so long
I think it's time we wrote the end
So
Brace yourself!

Don't you ever look back on
The plans that we made
You were one in a million
Not one in the same
Say goodbye
I'm done pretending
Sorry there's no happy ending
Don't you ever look back on
The plans that we made
You were one in a million
Not one in the same
Say goodbye
I'm done pretending
Sorry there's no happy ending

(Keep moving on
Maybe one day you'll find love
Baby I'll be gone
So don't come home for me)

I'll never stop (x3)
