Track Name: Hourglass
I got one bottle down
A bottle left to go

Cutting through the moonlight sharp and slow
Is the silence of inaction
And the cards you'll never show
Another back and forth
Another "I don't know"
When all I ever needed was a simple yes or no

I got one bottle down
A bottle left to go
Something warm to bleach my bones
And wash my dirty soul
Another day and night
Another hour or two
It's never been about what you say
It's always what you do

I can't make up your mind
Indecision has rendered me blind
All this time ain't free
Little hearts they wait for me
Little hands I long to hold in mine
But I can't make up your mind
Track Name: Don't Forget to Tip
Have you ever even played at taking care of her?
Has she ever seemed real comfortable at all?
Make mistakes
Make excuses
Make a drink or
Make a mess
But you'll never make a friend

Can't let the neighbors see your house a hole
Throw drinks and dirty jokes until they smile
Not your problem
Not your issue
Not concerned and
Not your fault
But they vanish one by one
But they vanish one by one

One last excuse
Led out of the cell with only footsteps to the noose
And you're waiting for your stay
But that's not happening today
Here's your waitress
Here's your tab
Time to pay
Track Name: Eat What You Kill
You can sit alone and wonder
How the current dragged you under
Sing your songs of how we all owe you your due
You can dirge in desperation
Think of every complication
And the reasons why shit isn't up to you

Now I choose to be defiant
Uncontrolled and noncompliant
Cause the world don't owe me anything at all
And if things don't go as planned
I'll pull back my bitten hand
And realize I put myself against the wall

Own what you do
Own what you don't
Shit will either work out or it won't
It ain't do or die
But your biggest lie
Is your life is someone else's to control

Eat what you kill
Your futures still unknown
It might be so goddamn sweet
Or bitter to the bone

Eat what you kill
Your futures all your own
It might be so goddamn sweet
Or bitter to the bone
Track Name: Mockingbirds
Never wanted anything til now
A rusted heart left in the yard
That someone finally found
For now you gotta hide that stuff away
Maybe sometime you and me can fix it up someday

And the booze I've used to douse this fire
Has only made shit worse
You are both my blessing and my curse

For now I'll watch you live by others' leave
With calloused words and mockingbirds
That no one should believe
All that you could give me was that smile
And kitten I'm gonna make sure that it lasts a long long while

And the booze I've used to douse this fire
Has only made shit worse
You are both my sickness and my cure

You put your little hand in mine
Like a spark in gasoline
It blossomed up into the dark
Like we ain't ever seen
So kitten grab up all you can 'cause it's time to leave this town
I'll pick you up on my way out
And won't ever put you down
I'll never put you down
Track Name: A Thousand Suns
Wasted days, wasted nights
All was bitter and contrite
I don't want to ever breathe or feel or ever
Act that way again
All is gold, all is new
Let's stop staring at our shoes
Let's just breathe this passive bullshit from
The bottom of our lungs

Straighten up, straighten out
It's all benefit no doubt
So just kiss me on my mouth let's buy
A round for this whole bar
Don't walk ahead, or lag behind
I need you right here by my side
With our heads up and chins out and
Hearts on fire

We don't need no map home
And we don't need no scapegoats
Our light of a thousand suns
I broke it off with apathy
The bitch was just no good for me and
Our light of a thousand suns
Outshines everyone

Heads up
Chins out
Hearts on fire

We don't need no map home
And we don't need no scapegoats
Our light of a thousand suns
I broke it off with apathy
The bitch was just no good for me
Our light of a thousand suns
When I'm with you then I'm at home
Got no problem keeping warm with
Our light of a thousand suns
When I'm with you then I'm at home
Never leave this heart alone
Our light of a thousand suns
Outshines everyone
