Track Name: Knockin' at my Door
Why are you always knockin' at my door
When I turned away and I don't want no more?
Will you follow me across the great divide?
Shut me out and forget that I'm alive?
Like you've done 1000x before
I can't learn I let you back for more.
Thinking with my heart and not my head,
thinking lying alone in bed.

How does the story end?
Right now the devil is my only friend.
That's the only way I can explain,
the reason we have not yet parted ways.

There's someone screamin' knockin' at my door,
now I wonder what else is in store?
What else are you holding back from me?
You've got a funny life's philosophy
where you can have your cake and eat it too
You can eat all that's in my kitchen 'till you're through
Then you walk on over to the store
because you're never satisfied 'till you've had more.

How does the story end?
Right now the devil is my only friend.
That's the only way I can explain,
the reason we have not yet parted ways.
Track Name: Anchored
Drifting coast to coast
looking for somewhere to go
but never somewhere to stay.
All of my bags are packed
I ain't never coming back
I'm tired of living this way.
My head nods at the wheel
as I'm trying not to feel
the reality of this game.
Where everybody's lost
but they deny it at all costs
trying to save face.

Please stay anchored.
Please, I'm feeling tired now.
Stay anchored now.

Can't change history
but we can add some mystery
it's hard to feel inspired.
You can't see the stars
when you're hidden in the bars
you're scared if you look up
you'll feel like you are not big enough.

Please, stay anchored.
Please, I'm feeling tired now.
Stay anchored now.

Just keep quiet.
Don't make a sound.
No one can hear us moving around.
Just keep quiet.
Don't make a sound.
No one can hear us moving around.
Just keep quiet.
Don't make a sound.
No one can hear us moving around.
Just keep quiet.

Please, stay anchored.
Please, I'm feeling tired now.
Stay anchored now.
Track Name: Best of Men
Day after day
If you live without complaints
Why are the pictures that you paint
Shades of red and grey

I can't tell you that
I can't tell you that
I can't tell you that
I ain't tellin' you that

So you string together
A clever little letter
Pressing every single feeling to the page
You took them from your sleeve
And handed them so carefully
Over to me
But I just threw 'em right away

They say
That my
Heart is enough to make
The best of a man go bad
I say
If you
Only really knew how much
I wish I could change
But I can't.

Time after time
You wish you could press rewind
And maybe you will find
A sliver lining here
All sense got swept away
By the excuse of the day
And the letdowns and the pain
Seem inviting now

I can't tell you that
I can't tell you that
I can't tell you that
I ain't tellin' you that

You can't sing without a voice
So you had to make a choice between
Silence and a massive rivalry
You looked up at the sun
With your hands upon the gun
I can't blame you if you
Point it right at me
I would

They say
That my
Heart is enough to make
The best of a man go bad.
I say
If you
Only really knew how much
I wish I could change
But I can't

And there's trouble here
You have everything to fear
And there's trouble here
You have everything to fear
Track Name: Spittin' Lies
You're so tired
I can see it in your eyes
You can't stand
The weight of all the lying.
Can you see it like I see it
Can you feel it when you dream it.
Lies.

Stop that act
You're all alone now.
Give up that ghost gone by.
Say it quiet
These walls have ears
And they know your fears.
Keep away from that roaring type.

It's night
Everything is quiet.
You can hear
The whispers sweeping by.
Dark falls heavy
Are you ready
Nothing ever ends up steady.
Cry.

Stop that act
You're all alone now.
Give up that ghost gone by.
Say it quiet
These walls have ears
And they know your fears.
Keep away from that roaring type.

Look what you've gone and done.
Track Name: Location
I guess you'll always think you're right
If you see yourself in an ever perfect light.
If we break down it's all the same
We're just another piece
Inside your wicked game
The one you play but always lose
And act as if you
Didn't have to choose
That's the story so it seems
Guess you're chasing
Someone else's dreams.

We start with so much love
And the world tears us apart.
While you're here right now
Say it from your heart.

I guess you'll always think you're right
If you see yourself in an artificial light.
The scars to prove, the bruise to blame.
You'll crumble cities
And then dance on their remains.
Now it's done, the point is proof
With every chance that's
Now been twice removed.
Things aren't always what they seem
Do you regret never coming clean?

We start with so much love
And the world tears us apart.
While you're here right now
Say it from your heart.
Track Name: Bridge by the River
I went down to the bridge by the river
To get to the other side
I put one foot in front of the other
To get there in even stride
When I got down to the bridge by the river
There was a massive wall
And I couldn't see over so I just imagined
And invented it all
I watched it fall.

Hey, hey, hey!
Get out while you still can!
Hey, he, hey!
Get out while you still can!
And I'll try to start again.

We went down to the bridge by the river
To get to the other side.
We walked together and leaned on each other
To make it there alive.
We crossed over the treacherous waters
And deconstructed the wall
There's no houses or buildings or anything living
We couldn't believe it at all
We watched it fall.

Hey, hey, hey!
Get out while you still can!
Hey, he, hey!
Get out while you still can!
And I'll try to start again.
