Track Name: Take It
Take it
And fake it
All I am saying
Is come back for me
It's a mess
You're reckless
There's horror in protest
Don't start a fight

I've been looking over my shoulder
When I turn the best part's always over
And you, shake me
You try your best for open eyes
Wake me

I sit up looking dead
A dry mouth, dizzy head
As last night lingers
All over, not sober
Wise words grow colder
I'm shakin', shakin'

I've been looking over my shoulder
When I turn the best part's always over
And you, shake me
You try your best for open eyes
Wake me
Track Name: Midnight Street
Walking for the first time down on midnight street
Looking for a bar, looking for a place to drink
Passing by a dance club, they try to sell me Ecstasy
I'll be fine if I keep my faith with make-believe

Living indecisive comparing the next
Happy with the outcome, out of context
Life could be like living, life could be like death
Living with a gamble, shaking on a bet

Looking for some small talk, don't know what it means to me
Putting down a shot, never paying for what's free
Watching other people, sometimes I don't care what I see
When I am bored sometimes the only choice is to leave

Living indecisive comparing the next
Happy with the outcome, out of context
Life could be like living, life could be like death
Living with a gamble, shaking on a bet
Track Name: At Least I Know
At least I know
I can breathe for a second
At least I know
Time will slow down for me
'Cause the finer things come and they go
I can take it or leave

At least I know
The things that really matter are with you
At least I know
You'll be making it out just fine
'Cause your focus is number one to keep your things in line

And I, and I can see it now
And I, and I can hear it now
And I, and I can feel it now

At least I know
I can breathe for a second
At least I know
Time will slow down for me
'Cause the finer things come and they go
I can take it or leave
Track Name: Last Place
I feel like the last person left in the room
My time for waiting is done
The unfamiliar is coming soon
I can't be the only one

Waking up to a brand new sun
Feel the seasons as they roll along
I would tell you if I could
But the last time I was here was so long ago
I don't remember a single thing from before
It's hard for me to say anymore

Is this a race and you're in the front row
Or am I just being dumb?
If I came in last would you call me slow?
Distractions greater than one

Fast asleep to an aging sun
In my dreams I'm always on the run
I would tell you if I could
But I never figure out where I'm gonna go
Even if I try to find my way I'll never know
It's hard for me to say anymore
Track Name: Play It Cool
When I try to think of something else
Cycle of thoughts just come around on itself
Too much aware of the things that I do
Look far into the distance like I'm playing it cool

Then I realize I can take this off my back
There's no certain way I should or shouldn't act
If I fall it's only written in the sand
In the end it's what we had

Sometimes I wonder how long will it take
It feels so empty now the longer I wait
After all of the things I've been through
I'm still telling myself to play it cool

Then I realize I can take this off my back
There's no certain way I should or shouldn't act
If I fall it's only written in the sand
In the end it's what we had
Track Name: 90 Days
90 days
Until I finally know what it feels like on my own
Take away the love of things that I've set in stone
But right now

It always feels like night time
When I"m tired of thinking
I'm always the last one left behind
I let the moment sink in
And watch it past
Try to make it last
Counting all the seconds like a pocket full of change
Is it okay to feel the same?

Many ways
To spend each golden hour
And I'll try not to count
But I can't help keeping track of everyday
Cross it out

It always feels like night time
When I"m tired of thinking
I'm always the last one left behind
I let the moment sink in
And watch it past
Try to make it last
Counting all the seconds like a pocket full of change
Is it okay to feel the same?
