Track Name: Downtown Shut Out
barely saw the sun today, set back my alarm clock and just sighed,
that familiar resignation taking hold
walls closing in around my world
unfolding views of the absurd
but we burn brighter than these billboards and fluorescent lights
if these days are just stamps on our timecards then I wonder why
I still get these chills when I think about how I spend
my days and how they waste away
find moments, look closely
see the sun break through the clouds and take the world for what it is
all the fucked up and sad and amazing things
dirty looks and business suits, totally oblivious to all going on, 20 stories underneath
these monsters looming over us, glass canyons blocking out the sun so
when i feel sad and frustrated, angry and cold
i remember the point of escape and how far we've come
so if these nights where we give everything we have amount to nothing
but the images that burned into our minds
we will carry every one throughout the years until we die.
Track Name: Thick As Thieves
As I lean my head on dirty glass and this train takes me away,
I stare outside at all the things that fill this place we ruled like kings.
It seems weve grown apart and gone our separate ways,
But this whole thing was far too strong, to be broken because were gone.

For all the nights we left, the words we held, the things we never learned,
Well fuck them all, we made the best decisions as far as im concerned.
and to the ones who said were wasting time, just pissing life away,
do you know how it feels to not want to take back a single day?

I hope, that we will always remember this,
I hope, that this is something we will miss,
And I know, I know, we wont have to pretend,
The next time I see you, my friends.

We let the adult world separate us and cut us at the knees,
But we never fall apart, we bridge the gaps and thousand miles of seas,
No matter where I am, nothing will ever come close,
To when we were together, drunk again, singing to the stars.
Track Name: Intellectuals Anonymous
we come back
a little too late to our senses
the damage we've accrued
and the memories we've lost
we tow the line
between logic and the great beyond
please hold yourself together
it's all we have
and it's true that

higher powers won't dictate
whether or not you have a drink
josh, you're stronger than this
choices made are circumstantial
judgments can't be passed
you'll live another day

legendary losses
we deal with everyday
reflecting life with a shotgun
and a lack of personal space
it's for the best you're well aware
another night then fucking sunrise
time is on your side now

higher powers won't dictate
how you live your life
we're stronger than this
empowerment is a virtue
when realized

the more we stand above him
the less we stand to gain
Track Name: Science And The Founding Fathers
the snow's coming down
in goddamn boston
i've tried to hold myself together
for a month now
chords and philosophy
don't help as much as you might think
i'm tearing at the seams

but there's whiskey on my breath
i fucked up
keep on trying, breaking my back
wishing i was hopeful
the damage has been done
i'm wasted
try again some other day
recognize thoughts of fate
demons come but we will stay
we will find a way.

i'm petrified
of more than old habits
and sacrifices
the snow's piling up
and i'm still standing
just not as tall as i was before

we're motionless
i won't look the other way
from the silence
measuring the time it takes
to disengage

but there's whiskey on my breath
i'm sorry
keep on trying, breaking my back
wishing i was hopeful
the damage has been done
i'm wasted
try again some other day
recognize thoughts of fate
but we will find a way.
