Track Name: Washed Out (Shoegazing)
was a king of second chances/was a king of second chances
no excuses/mostly useless
burned down all my bridges/burned down all my bridges
with a lighter/watch the fire
everything will expire

where you are/you don't know
where you been you don't wanna go, tonight
the sun is out/but you're feeling low
what to do/you never know, and that's your life
the celebration just got over
and everyone is so much older and wise
so it begins, here's to the end
here's to my friends, yeah i'll see them again
some other time

there's a hole in the back of my head/yeah there's a hole in the back of my head
look inside and see/i showed you everything
burned down all my bridges/burned down all my bridges
with a lighter/watch the fire
everything will expire

where you are/you don't know
where you been you don't wanna go, tonight
the sun is out/but you're feeling low
what to do/you never know, and that's your life
the celebration just got over
and everyone is so much older and wise
so it begins, here's to the end
here's to my friends, yeah i'll see them again
some other time
Track Name: So it Goes....
have fun but not too much fun
too many nights you come undone
living fast and dying young
where you gonna be when tomorrow come

so it goes....as they say
on and on the time we waste

backseat's getting crowded
music's playing, someone's shouting
we're driving in circles around this town
nothing to do when the sun goes down

so it goes....as they say
on and on the time we waste


the night is ending
my chances are fading
you're standing there
looking amazing
my fingers are crossed
i'm hoping and praying
that you don't turn me away

so it goes....as they say
i'm walking home in the rain

so it goes....as they say
on and on the time we waste
Track Name: Arizona
lost in Arizona on the way to California
walking through the desert, light as a feather
over the mountains, nothing but stormy weather
how did we get here? i don't remember

but i got no place to be

this is the calm before the storm
the weather's still warm
but you've been warned
the night is just beginning
and your head's already spinning
but that's ok

looking for an oasis
someplace to get wasted
where we can sit down
and say say something tasteless
got to admit, i think this place is faceless
walking through the desert
has tried all my patience

but i got no place to be

this is the calm before the storm
the weather's still warm
but you've been warned
the night is just beginning
and your head's already spinning
but that's ok

the temperature is dropping
night has fallen
but the storm keeps on going
no signs of stopping
abandon destination, endless vacation
lying here and waiting
i've always been waiting

but i got no place to be

this is the calm before the storm
the weather's still warm
but you've been warned
the night is just beginning
and your head's already spinning
but that's ok
Track Name: E C H O E S
she spends all of her days in the shadows
listening for the echoes of a ghost
to tell her something that changes what she knows
she wants to feel love deeper in her bones

she says she is nothing but a skeleton

last night, dirty hands and dirty lovers
shared their secrets under covers
she said, i just want to kill the pain
will i ever be the same?
cause this, medicine's not kicking in
and I don't know where you've been
last night, the whole world fell apart
and she could feel it in her heart

she spends all of her nights walking empty roads
going further into the unknown
searching for a place to call her own
she want to feel love deeper in her bones

she says she is nothing but a skeleton

last night, dirty hands and dirty lovers
shared their secrets under covers
she said, i just want to kill the pain
will i ever be the same?
cause this, medicine's not kicking in
and I don't know where you've been
last night, the whole world fell apart
and she could feel it in her heart

records spin as the room caves in
and everything that could have been
but never was only because
that's the way that it is

last night, dirty hands and dirty lovers
shared their secrets under covers
she said, i just want to kill the pain
will i ever be the same?
cause this, medicine's not kicking in
and I don't know where you've been
last night, the whole world fell apart
and she could feel it in her heart
Track Name: Minotaur
bare feet, marble floors
walking through the corridors
welcome to my maze
go on, scream and shout
there's no one to let you out
of this place
your heart, beating fast
next to mine but it won't last
there's no escape
i was born an ugly beast
no salvation, inner peace
this is my fate

Can't help myself/Can't help myself
can't help myself/I'm not myself
I don't know/I don't know
I dont' know/what do I know
Every night/Different fight
Outta mind/Outta sight
Can't help myself/Can't help myself
Can't help myself/I'm not myself

I am not myself tonight

silhouettes dance in a haze
welcome to the end of days
it's too late
all those endless nights
searching for another life
this is the place
come on, run and hide
pretty soon you'll be mine
there's no escape
I was born an ugly beast
no salvation, inner peace
this is my fate

Can't help myself/Can't help myself
can't help myself/I'm not myself
I don't know/I don't know
I dont' know/what do I know
Every night/Different fight
Outta mind/Outta sight
Can't help myself/Can't help myself
Can't help myself/I'm not myself

I am not myself tonight

I don't know/I don't know what to do
about you

Can't help myself/Can't help myself
can't help myself/I'm not myself
I don't know/I don't know
I dont' know/what do I know
Every night/Different fight
Outta mind/Outta sight
Can't help myself/Can't help myself
Can't help myself/I'm not myself

I am not myself tonight
