Track Name: Nostalgia
Nostalgia in your home town
Is the drug I wish they sold
It warms my blood at the moment
Never feeling old
And you will need binoculars to see how far we’ve come
I’m laughing at myself and all the fronts that we put on

And it feels like for the first time
You know where you should be

Your friend back from school
Thinking I’m a fool with no ambition
Because I don’t know the capitol of the state that he lives in
And I’m spending so much time cherishing the arts
That I haven’t’ spoken to you in a while
But you know that I know where you are

And it feels like
For the first time
You know where
You should be
You know
Where you should be
For the first time
I know exactly where you are
Track Name: Cat's Game
Playing in the Cat’s Game
Trying to learn the ways
I’m fed up with my landlord
Seems to own the days I’m working in the factory
Making pennies to throw away
Keep your eyes right ahead Keep reality at bay

Because I’m just the ordinary
At the wishing well, the wishing well, Trying to find more meaning
In this fairy tale the people sell

Playing in the Cat’s Game
You never say what you think
My generation’s quick to judge Innocuous, anonymously
And I watch you fight your war on terror
I said it’s hard looking deep down in the mirror

Because we’re just the ordinary At the wishing well, the wishing
well, Trying to find more meaning
In this fairy tale the people sell
I’m just the ordinary
At the wishing well, the wishing well, Trying to find more meaning
In this fairy tale the people sell

I can never wake you up You’re just too intoxicated
I can never wake you up You’re just too intoxicated Because we’re just the ordinary At the wishing well, the wishing well, Trying to find more meaning In this fairy tale, the people sell

Throwing everything I have To the wishing well, the wishing well, Trying to find more meaning In this fairy tale that I would sell

Everything you have
Track Name: Easy Village
Because at this age it's okay I've got a bartenders wage I'll say
That the weekends they'll repeat
Why have a life when it's a part time thing
It's plain to see in everyone
The midnight retreats
To the sun
Denial is easy, I hear you say
People are just people
We're the...

Young nothings sitting comfortably in the shade
"Independently wealthy" it's a line they rehearse to say

Because we're following the paper trails to the pretty hearts
Without a wonder where, where they really are
Following the paper trails to the pretty hearts
Without a wonder where, where they really are
Are they all the same looking for a last name?

But it's plain to see in everyone
The midnight retreat
To the sun
Denial is easy and I hear you say
People are just people
we're the
Same, Same, Insane

Because we're following the paper trails to the pretty hearts
Without a wonder where, where they really are
Following the paper trails to the pretty hearts
Without a wonder where, where they really are
Are they all the same looking for a last name?
Track Name: Walls
Maybe I’m just another boy
Looking for something to fill the void
Directionless in a teenage dream
You’re feeling old when you realize nothing’s as it seems
And I don’t blame you for building walls when the men make it easy
But don’t you dare trap yourself inside
Because they jump the gun and take a bullet to be loved by someone
You hate the world but then you compromise

Sometimes I get defensive
When I believe in something or someone
The world is starved for attention
But fuck them all I give it you just to prove...

That I’ve got a girl that makes me feel like man
God damn
She becomes a part of me something that I didn’t think I needed
I sit with her and I watch the neighborhood changing
And they sell it to me it’ll never be as good as your “good old day”
Forget your “good old days”
It’s funny how the bad never seemed so bad when looking back
My memory dulls, I get a little sentimental
I jump the gun, take a bullet to be to be loved by someone
I hate the world but I compromise to be one on one with you

Sometimes I get defensive
When I believe in something or someone
The world is starved for attention
So fuck them all I give it you just to prove...

Sometimes I get defensive
When I believe in something or someone
The world is starved for attention
But fuck them all I give it you just to prove...

All the coy fish in the pond
I know what you are
How’d they get their name and live so long
I know what you are
I know what you are
I know what you are
I know what you are
I know what you are
I know what you are
Track Name: Forward (Album Version)
Straight forward
Easily amused
The cards we play where a spade is a spade
And you know that
We hate cliches like the color jade's the new black
But she feels fat in a size zero
All the scared obsessed with super heroes
But you sway towards the villain
Because they're not afraid of their own
Vision
And they're

Straight Forward

But you never see it grow
Like the mold in the walls
The nights where your young and the days where your old
The free and the dumb and the freedom to waste
Time thinking about time
I've got a wandering eye
In the sky
For the people inside
Are wondering why I'm not

Straightforward

What are you really trying to prove?
With the sarcastic tone you default to?
I can see when you're trying to hide
You play this song on the stereotype
For The People Inside
For The People Inside
For The People Inside
For The People Inside
For The People

Straight Forward
