Track Name: Way Back Home
we’ve waited here so long for a single song
that shakes us down to our bones
and tells us where to go
there we are in the middle of the night
driving fast to chase the sunlight
on a goal we’ll never know, but our hearts are on the road

wave goodbye to normal life, with all this pain and strife
my hearts got road in it’s sights
and we’re moving on tonight
there we are in the middle of the night
driving fast to chase the sunlight
on a goal we’ll never know, but our hearts are on the road

do you wish you could drop it all and go, ride out into the unknown
I know these memories will carry me for the rest of my life
or wherever I may go

give in to the sound that you remember,
the only sound you know
will light the way back home
Track Name: Elitist Generation
This marks the spot in the catalyst of hits
to where our hearts did stop, the rhythm it’s been seeing
so i'll take these dreams handed down to me,
and throw them out with my memories
though my heart won't stop the rhythm its been bleeding

My whole life i’ve apologized for the problems that were never mine
cause i'm chewing on the lines that they’ve been feeding
You can dream on your own, you can change the world
if you hold on to the visions of your youth

Alright, it’s gone on long enough
it time to open up, these faded boring cuts,
are lame outdated junk
and they will never run
if our feet can't touch the ground
Its time to cast aside irrationality
it’s time to redefine social humanity
and it’ll never be unless we’re all agreed
we’re taking ourselves too seriously

We can do it, Elitist Generation
We can think for ourselves.

I know you're afraid to let go of these chains
all this fear has left you scarred and tremblin
they will judge and they will judge
but if they push they’ll never budge
cause they are scared to,
they’re afraid just like you

WHOA OH OH
Track Name: 819 70th St
How could the sun rise on a place that’s been forsaken for so long
i see it in our eyes
we had the chords, but we didn’t have the song
all of our hearts were broken and mended by
this city covered in the sound
we just needed a place to call our own,
we just needed a place to get down

you're screaming from your bedroom baby we know
you never want to be alone
come scream it from the basement baby, we know

every day I think would young me be proud of the man I am now
or would he turn right around hang his head down
would he leave without a sound
in the morning when the sunlight cracks over these frozen hills
I think of every heart and soul in that room
and the parties we threw that killed

We will live in these time forever
We will live in these times for...
But we will grow old and break down...
Track Name: First World Problems
doesn’t make much sense to me
you wear your heartache on your sleeve
like a badge of honor
held on by non stop complaining
don't care about your problems
unless those problems are your own that you made for yourself
you're going to die old and alone

your lonely lifestyle met with razors,
your constant complaining is bringing me down
your heart is locked down in a world you built
around yourself and no one else

got everything you could ever want, nothing that you’d ever need
and still you feel like the world is smiling while you are drowning
do you know i think of you, you're wasted privilege and wasted youth you put your dukes up when no one is there to listen to you

your lonely lies and met with razors, your constant complaining is bringing me down
your heart is locked down in a world you built around yourself and no one else

got everything you could ever want
nothing that you’d ever need,
and still you feel like the world is smiling while you’re drowning
do you know what I think of you?
You’re wasted privilege and wasted youth
you put your dukes up when know one is there to listen to you

first world problems
complain complain

but is there more to life than what keeps us alive?
is there more to life than breathing?
Track Name: Not So Proud
when did the everyday life become the everyday grind
am i the only one who thinks outside the lines
seems like we're bowing out day after day
the only help we're giving is helping each other drown.
living will tear you down, till we are all worn out
but we’ll make it out alright

when did the everyday life become the everyday grind
am i the only one who thinks outside the lines
it’s time to tear down these walls and make our move
across the world that’s been yearning
for our hearts are set to prove
till we are let down

we are not so proud....
Track Name: Heading Back To Zero
ever since were born were taught that financial gains the only way to grow
but misery and pain will come no matter what your precious bank account would say
you’ll have to trust me when I say
that the greatest things in life I know
they can’t be bought or sold
I wouldn’t trade a single experience for a dollar bill,
i know that in my heart and soul this life's worth more than gold

you’ll have to trust me when I say
that the greatest things in life I know they can’t be bought or sold
I wouldn’t trade a single experience for a dollar bill,
i know that in my heart and soul this life's worth more than gold

but in the heat of desperation,
this oh so willing nation takes control
we’ll give away our dollars
and thankfully pay for schools and needed homes.

and the choir goes...
financial strain has become way too much for me,
heading back to zero
Track Name: Hearts Of Gold
If I had a dollar
for every bridge i’d burned down
i’d be a wealthy man

and if you could know all the nights that i’ve cried out aloud
you’d know who I am

I don't measure a man in the lovers that he gets
no, i'm too old for this
I only measure a man by all of his regrets
and yet how he gets through it
how he gets through the oldest story ever told
what i really am, you’ll never know
and the more we live, the more we grow
you’ve got to be worth your weight in gold
be worth your weight in gold

I don't measure a man by the god that he feels blessed
no, i'm too old for this
I only measure a man when his heart is under stress
and yet how he gets through it

What matters most, i’ve been told
are hearts of gold.
Track Name: Head For The Hills Mama
Now is our time, we’re changing everything
just drop your life and go
we don't need anything

for every home sick feeling just keeping me here
this is everything I love and everything I fear

you close your eyes, dream of a different life
I will take you there, just pack your bags tonight

for every dumb struck feeling
just keep me here
this is everything you love and everything you fear

but if we head towards the hills, we might make it out tonight
we could make it to the coast in 10 hours time
with some help and some luck you know we’ll be alright
as long as we leave tonight

just walk out on your job no matter what they say
we’ll live off the land
no money anyway

for every hopeless feeling just keeping us here
well this is everything we love and everything we fear

tell them all to fuck off
we’re gonna change the world
I’ll always be your man
(you’ll always be my girl)

for every dumpstered feeling just keeping us here
we’re gonna show them all tonight through all the heart and tears
Track Name: Nowhere Kids
Saturday mornings spent skating through the break of dusk
we were lost, nowhere to go
and we wonder why they rush through life to put blinders on
if you want happiness don't tell a soul...
that’s the only thing you need to know

our whole lives they all looked down on us
so we were forced now, to go out on our own
so we turned to the only thing that inspires us
the sound waves on your radio

If you had a chance to live your life,
why would you just choose to die
instead of waiting for the end of days
feels like you’re at the bottom of the list
but there’s hope for suburban kids
the city sounds will lead the way

we are the nowhere kids
screaming out your stereo
with no place left to go
Track Name: Too Rich To Fight
we could take a life full of centuries just to find the money to feed
all the helpless hearts dying in the streets, let alone the cities

if you listen at night you can hear them cry for their lives they’re so alone
they just need a hand to help them on their feet let alone a warm meal and home

are you alright?
are you too rich to fight for their lives?
are you too rich to fight tonight?

how can you judge them all to die when you can see the pain in their eyes
with every new family hurt tonight, you just see dollar signs

why’s it raining on me tonight?
am i too angry to be alive, to unprivileged to be alright?
I nearly watched my uncle die with his wife right by his side
and his daughter had to sign the papers there,
just to keep him alive

or would they burn every mother who rolls in to a clinic
because circumstances changed her life
would you tell her that her choices are pay or die when you look straight in her eyes?
Track Name: Loretta
Loretta don't leave me dry
cause i'm sick of life and I want to have a good time

Every new day is a heartache
another long night spent alone
the tick of the clock is the heart break
pounding out the year like a metronome
well this freight train is loaded and it’s rolling down
full of memories and old city sounds
and it’s not stopping till I hit the ground
if i have a say it’s all coming down

I'm a lonely ol’ man with rocks for teeth
i'm looking for love but it ain't lookin for me
when i close my eyes and i fall asleep
I dream of a world with something to believe

‘cause sooner or later it all falls apart
and it’s better to quit before you start
you could be the strongest man with the strongest heart
but life’s a stage, we’re all playing bit parts
for all the misplaced friends and the empty regrets they left for me
there is only one thing in this world thats ever let you down
I’ve worked these aching hands down to the bone
don't turn me away, just be a friend
and help drink me to sleep
Track Name: Pros And Cons
was it something that we did that lead us here to this special place inside of our hearts
I know everything you’re writing down and I know every time you’re running out
you wish it would all come round again

a broken needle on a broken record
a broken man with broken efforts
I wish it would all come round again

I know it takes so much more from me
and I know this changes
It changes everything
I know this takes so much more the I’ve grown up to be
I wish it would all come round again

remember me as I fall
if i’ll be up at all
I'll make the same mistakes again

I don't know where the bottle ends and I begin
I guess i'll see you in the end.
