Track Name: Dire, Dire Docks
When I stepped outside, a hole opened up in the sky
Lake Michigan was trying to fight the land
Each raindrop a voice in my head
To get itself back to its older shore
Back to the way things had been before
I didn't fight my storm and you shouldn't fight yours

Don't wait for me to weather the storm
Don't wait for
Don't wait for me to weather the storm
Don't wait for

Keeping this at bay doesn't keep it away
Embrace this time of need
Maybe you could change for the better
If not for you then for me
I could spend my time trying to convince you
Your brain knows I'm right
But your heart is scared to admit that it's true
You're so you, not going down without a fight

Don't wait for me to weather the storm
Don't wait for
Don't wait for me to weather the storm
Don't wait for
Track Name: Tiny Huge Island
It's been six years
In another five will I be fine?
Will I have a child who has your eyes, your smile, your laugh?
Will they be a track to the past?
Playing the traits of you I haven't seen in a while
Though I carry them inside

This is how I keep you alive
This is how I keep you alive
This is how I keep you alive
You're a ghost inside

The fall of 2015 was the longest I remember in my history
It's like all the bad weather had someone else to bother
My hands didn't hurt
My lungs weren't cold
And I came to terms with growing old
Discovered happy is something I can choose whenever I want to

This is how I keep you alive
This is how I keep you alive
This is how I keep you alive
You're a ghost inside

This is how I keep you alive
This is how I keep you alive
This is how I keep you alive
You're a ghost inside
Track Name: Bob-omb Battlefield
I think back a few years ago
Bonfires every night
Dating a guy I didn't like
I felt like an orphan
But I had friends
And that's all I ever had
During the summer of 2011

Just give me July
75 and sunny skies
Mornings at the beach
Nights screaming so loud I can barely speak
Just give me July
75 and sunny skies
Mornings at the beach
Nights screaming so loud I can barely speak
Nights screaming so loud I can barely speak

Now that it's 2015, I find myself wondering
Things do change fast here
Am I in the clear to waste away another year?
No, no, no, I've got a gun loaded with chance
And no idea how to use it

So just give me July
75 and sunny skies
Mornings at the beach
Nights screaming so loud I can barely speak
Just give me July
75 and sunny skies
Mornings at the beach
Nights screaming so loud I can barely speak
Nights screaming so loud I can barely speak
Nights screaming so loud I can barely speak

Just give me July
75 and sunny skies
Mornings at the beach
Nights I'll always remember cause you were with me
Track Name: Cool, Cool Mountain
Wasting the depths of me
You pour out your heart but you dangle a string tonight
So stay on your own side
It's killing me softly with every breath you hide
Don't say that you mean it and waste my time

You've got the pieces of me
Another falsely accused fucking heartless decree
But don't you say you never meant a thing
It's not just you that couldn't fall asleep

Oh, what a thing to say
You know I'd never say half the things on my mind
You can't make me want it
You can't even want yourself
So give me something to fight on, something to write about

You've got the pieces of me
Another falsely accused fucking heartless decree
But don't you say you never meant a thing
It's not just you that couldn't fall asleep

As I lay myself down to rest, I respond to the confinement of my bed and wipe away every fucking lie and deceitful thing you've ever said from my mind. That tossing and turning you feel me do when you're pressed against my chest comes from a lack of honesty and resentment that you've forced me to bury away. I'm too young for this at 24.
Track Name: Wet Dry World
I made us coffee in the morning as my way of saying sorry
When I looked back on warmer days
When my eyes could easily hold your gaze
Now it's not the same
We silently admitted our wrong ways
Laying in my bed, when I reached for your hand

I said, "I love you," and added, "as a friend"
And your breath paused
And we chose to believe it
Now I hardly see you
It's not just cause I'm in Chicago
I wanted you to be more than a senior summer stamp
And stay in my memory

How can we both confide our problems without triggering the other's?
How can I pick us both up off the ground?
How can we push and pull the right amount?
When do your problems stop being mine?
Can I separate our lives?
No, I don't want to
I don't want to

I said, "I love you," and added, "as a friend"
And your breath paused
And we chose to believe it
Now I hardly see you
It's not just cause I'm in Chicago
I wanted you to be more than a senior summer stamp
And stay in my memory

I'm not a bad person for trying to kill my sadness
Track Name: Whomp's Fortress
Born with urges I can't control
I try to hide it but I know you can see right through me
Yeah, you can see right through me
Questions were answered
Ones I never asked anyway
I need to bury the past like every filter in your ashtray

I've got her poor choices
Running through my blood
It started 24 years ago
It ends right here where we're starting from
I get this way day to day
I was born with it
But I'll fight it
Because I'm better than this, at least I hope so

I'm convinced there's something wrong with me
Is it something I'm inventing?
I was told what she did with me at a time when I was weak
With family I see every 52 weeks
Imagine 36 for 2
Imagine those Baby Blues
I hope I grew to be enough for you

I've got her poor choices
Running through my blood
It started 24 years ago
It ends right here where we're starting from
I get this way day to day
I was born with it
But I'll fight it
Because I'm better than this, at least I hope so

Tonight my weak side showed
I made sure I was alone
With a match to light the spark
I had a guide in the dark

Tonight my weak side showed
The weakest side I know
I made sure I was alone
I put myself there, I know
With a match to light the spark
And it didn't show me anything
I had a guide in the dark
I'm better this, at least I hope so
