Track Name: Wanderlust
I am far away from the places we would play,
Down the road with toy guns, underneath the sinking sun,
Waging wars and starting fights as the day turned into night;
I am far away from the person I used to be, I used to be.

If all roads lead me home, where else can I go?
Wanderlust is dangerous to us.

I can hear it now, I can hear it now,
I can feel the weight of all this change,
Feel one thousand years of grief and it’s pressing down on me.
I am young, I am old, all the stories that we’ve told,
They’ve changed our very souls.
I’m not who I used to be, who I used to be.
Track Name: The Letdown
I’ll eat you alive, just as the day consumes the night,
That look in your eyes sings me a sad song of wasted time.
Bury your past like you buried that hatchet,
Burn all your bridges and scatter the ashes.

It’s time to let go: this is getting old. Don’t let me down.
It’s time to let go of everything you know: this constant letdown.

So this is the answer to everytime we fall?
You keep moving forward as if we never fell at all.
Bury your past like you buried that hatchet,
Burn all your bridges and scatter the ashes.

It’s time to let go: this is getting old. Don’t let me down.
It’s time to let go of everything you know: this constant letdown.
This is the greatest letdown I’ve ever know.
Is this the way that it’s supposed to be?
I’ll never know how it’s supposed to be.
Track Name: Dead Language
Here we go again: words like cellophane
come and pull me in time and time again.
I’ve been wondering, wondering where you’ve been.
I’ve been wondering if you’re listening.
Through rise and fall, I’ve seen it all,
I’ve built these walls and I’ve watched them fall.
What can I do but start anew?
I never knew how to reach you.
I’m waiting, waiting for you,
But I don’t know what else to do.
We wonder why we don’t make sense,
I think we’ve been speaking a dead language.
All the words you say, just like the seasons, change,
I’ll set my head on fire to find out what you mean.
Here we go again, words like cellophane
Keep me waiting for…
I’m waiting.
I’m waiting.
Track Name: Broken Jaw
I’d close my eyes and I’d get some rest
If I could be so sure that I’d wake again.
It’s been too long and I’m too far gone.
I’m not waiting for anyone,
I don’t want to know (I never have before),
I’m not waiting for when the time is right.

Why can’t you slow down?
Why can’t you slow down?
When everything’s wrong and we move alone
You want to get out.

All this time I’ve been sitting here
With this broken jaw and these sleeping pills.
I can’t sleep, I can’t speak tonight.
I’m not waiting for anyone,
I don't want to know (I never have before),
I’m not waiting for when the time is right.
I never wanted to have it all:
I just wanted what I never could have.
