Track Name: Soundwaves
We're running
Without motion
To a new place
Middle of the ocean
We'll meet up
And we'll sink down
If you want in
You gotta drop now

All aboard we're leaving on a journey
But leave your things 'cause our bodies aren't going far
Mass critical
We feel hysterical
Pass the moon and into the great beyond

We're not coming down
We're not coming down
And we'll never stop

It's like I'm something new
When my body is floating on soundwaves
You feel me I feel you
When our bodies are floating on soundwaves

Let's go, Let's go
Let's go, Let's go
Let's go, Let's go
Let's go, Let's go

Don't fear the dark
It's where find our home base
Light up a smoke we know it's like life support
The rolling hills and light show from the garden
Wrap me up in the sounds of a different world

We're not coming down
We're not coming down
And we'll never stop

It's like I'm something new
When my body is floating on soundwaves
You feel me I feel you
When our bodies are floating on soundwaves
Track Name: The Force Is Strong
Drag the lake and find me at the bottom
Sheets to wind head heavy like a stone
Maybe I'm just stoned, I never thought about it
A funny feeling tryin' to get away from you

When we're off you never want to talk about it
When we're on you only want on me
Am I feeling used? I never thought about it
Fill me up with those spirits from Tennessee

You always seem to remind me that I'm better off alone
Whoa Whoa
That I'm better off alone
You always seem to remind me that I can't live on my own
Whoa Whoa
No I can't live on my own

I think it's funny the way you want me
Just to do me and use me like a hobby
We've come a long way from those basement days
Of sneaking in a buzz and sneaking out to stray

Goddamn you drive me mad everything you say
Sure you think it's cute, but that's not the case
I guess I'll stick around since I kinda love you
I guess I'll stick around since we're both kinda nothing

You always seem to remind me that I'm better off alone
Whoa Whoa
That I'm better off alone
You always seem to remind me that I can't live on my own
Whoa Whoa
No I can't live on my own
Track Name: That Feeling
I feel it in my bones
The turning seasons that bring the cold
I am restless yet I'm weary
I'll never find comfort in this feeling

Nestled in the dirt beneath some stones
I found a thought of you, I found a thought of you
The very spot where I buried my heart alone
I found nothing new, I found nothing new

Empty bottles line my memories
Smokey rooms clouding everything
Better judgement wasn't meant for me
I'd rather drink and write my life away

Disrupted sheets clothe my bed
Room for two but half's a mess
My dirty laundry sprawled overhead
I'll shake it off with a swig of my fifth

I'll drink away every morning that I think I'm in love
I'll drink away every morning that I think I'm in love
I'll drink away every morning that I think I'm in love
I'll drink away every morning that I think I'm in love
Track Name: I Don't Care
I let it slip away
But I don't want it, no I don't want it
My illusion holds all the weight
And I bought it, yeah I bought it
My back against a wall I'll stay
I'll be here, yeah I'll be here
Lost in a world of grey
But I don't care, no I don't care

When everything seems a mess
I don't care
I'm not running away
No telling what I'll become
I don't care
I'm not running away

They have a bridge to sell
But I don't want it, no I don't want it
Mind cleared once I tripped and fell
And I bought it, yeah I bought it
This 'stead's where I'm gonna be
I'll be here, yeah I'll be here
Stuck in a state of misery
But I don't care, no I don't care

When everything seems a mess
I don't care
I'm not running away
No telling what I'll become
I don't care
I'm not running away

I don't care
Track Name: This Town
When the sun sets on our hometown
We're gonna feel young
In our hearts we know that our best days
Haven't come and gone

We're not fools we know time is short
Thing is we don't care
Never worried much or gave into our useless fears

To hell and back that's where we've been
This slice of life might be growing thin
But it's all that we will get
Memories of the fires that lit our hearts with our friends
I'll drink to the nights that'll never end

The bright lights that line our favorite streets
Like signals they guide us where we know we want to be
In the alleyways where we live to break the law and duck the heat
Set ourselves free with what youth we keep

We will always be young at heart even when we're old souls
We will always be young at heart even when we're old souls
We will always be young at heart even when we're old souls
We will always be young at heart even when we're old souls

When the sun sets on our hometown
We're gonna feel young
In our hearts we know that our best days
Haven't come and gone
