Track Name: Mile Or An Inch
I'm a degenerate
Questioning the benefit with every stride
Sick of the thrill of it, and I'd kill for just a little of the civilized
And I can recall the fall that I took last night
But I woke up sore in the third floor, trying to piece back together your words of advice

You said there's no second guesses,
When you're swinging for the fences

And I'm a hypocrite
Divided by the sentiments of separate sides
Where ones a sinking ship and the other’s keeping me alive
And I can't recall the fall that I took last night
But I woke up sore, trying to remember your words of advice

You said there's no second guesses,
When you're swinging for the fences
Don't go down without a fight
'Cause it doesn't matter if you're missin' by a mile or an inch kid,
But at least you know you tried

If it's the last words that I'll ever sing for the rest of my life
Write it down
Light it up
On a neon traffic sign
Track Name: Anchoring
Late night in this holding cell
Looking for salvation
I can hear the death bell
Attention, I still struggling for air
My brain hurt like a warehouse
It had no room to spare

In high tide
I’m waking up
I’m all right
I’m waking up

It’s fool’s pride
And I’m in luck
I’m all right
I’m waking up

Are we still anchoring?
If I could I would erase this
Track Name: Get Up
Get Up
Get up, get on your feet
Are you half awake or are you half asleep?
My eyes won’t stay open wide
I can’t win but I gotta keep trying
I’m going nowhere tonight

Looks like I'm afraid to lose

Get up get up get up
No ones falling here
Is what you told me

Looks like I'm afraid to lose
Is this my own fait or is it what I choose?
And then I saw your old tattoo
Reading I'm afraid to lose
Track Name: The World Is An Asshole
There's a light that i put in this vessel
And I wonder if you've seen it today
Or is it smashed at the bottom of a barrel
From when you went and threw it away
I'm not the type who wants people around
But I'd really like it if you stayed
We can talk all night and listen to Lifetime
‘Cause baby we’re dancers today

And my heart is filled with solid gold
It's worth a lot but it's weighing me down

Try to hang on
Doing something wrong
I want to be myself
There's a fire in your heart
That I help put out
And for that I'll burn in hell

The last time I got out of bed
I should have slept in all day instead
I'm not safe out here
Track Name: Nasty Habit
Let it ring
Let it linger
Let it go to the machine
I will not move an inch
Or lift a finger
You never wanted me to leave

Let it stay
Let it always,
Be the way it that day seemed,
The good is gone in a blink
Like a runaway
Like a thief who steals the scene

Let it free
Let it breath deep
See what a little bit of light can show
Trim the fat
Gut the vessel
Make way for those one of our own

Let it go
Let the people know
We won battles but lost the war
It’s a crime
We were so close
We got robbed outside of our own front door

After all this you haven’t
Found the truth
That I’ve got a nasty habit
And I will Disappoint you
Track Name: Vivir & Morir
We're Christening, the streets of our cities
Recovering a lost sense of self esteem
And last New Year's Eve
You made a liar out of me
When I looked back through the window of the backseat and you found your way back home

I'll live and die
A thousand times
Before I ever get it right
I'm coming up short
Leaving so much more
To be desired every time

We're wandering the streets of our cities
Stumble across the very spot I stopped
And you thought I'd turn around
