Track Name: Honestly
Verse 1
And the heat is rising
Honestly, Honestly
And my heart is aching
Honestly, Honestly
And my tongue is tied
Watching life go by
And my head is pounding
Honestly, Honestly

Chorus
You wanna shake it
For a little while
So just trust me
It's not why...

Verse 2
Why am I
Such a mess
Oh I guess I will try to explain
Why I'm feeling this way

So I'll run out
Of time-outs
Untie Me
Untie Me

Chorus
You wanna shake it
For a little while
So just trust me
It's not why...

Bridge
Run out of time
You've already wanted
To run
Out of time
You've already wanted
To run
Out of time
You've already wanted
To run
Out of time
You've already wanted more
Track Name: Way Out
Verse 1
Baby
You’ve got a hold on me
And I’m gonna like it
That way, yeah!

Honey
You say you’ve got some moves
But I’m gonna make ya
Take your time
On me, yeah!

Chorus
‘Cause lately
I’m losing sleep
Someone help me
Make me believe
That we’re standing
On better ground
Let me out there
Find a way out

Verse 2
Sha-Sha Show me...
Show some skin
And then
give it to me
give it to me
Or I will yell

You say you’ve got some...
Ooh you’ve got some hip
But when the show is over
I’ll look right in

Chorus
‘Cause lately
I’m losing sleep
Someone help me
Make me believe
That we’re standing
On better ground
Let me out there
Find a way out

Bridge
Let me be alone
alone
Let me be alone
alone
Let me be alone
alone
Let me be-
alone

Chorus
‘Cause lately
I’m losing sleep
Someone help me
Make me believe
That we’re standing
On better ground

Let me out there...
Let me out...
Let me out!
Track Name: Answer Me
Verse 1
Ticking time
Doesn’t agree
So i’ll just stare
At the ceiling
Patterns and shapes
Disformation
Patterns and waves
Keeps me thinking, keeps me thinking

Chorus
Answer Me
Answer Me
Answer Me
Answer Me

Verse 2
You drive a tight ship baby
You are hot
Enough for me to cool you off
A smooth talker you create
But i’ve gotta keep you waiting
You’ve got
Enough
Enough to blow this up
But i’m
Pretty sure that
I’m
Not

Chorus
Answer Me
Answer Me
Answer Me
Answer Me

Climb
I found that in time
Getting close
Was not what I’ve
Expected
For my life
Now you are gone
You tried to rush me

It was a cool breeze
It was a cruel deep

Everything is better in my head.

RYAN VOCALS
Break my bones away,
Bury me at Sea.
Take my life away,
Pray to god for rain.
(INSTRUMENTAL)

ALEX VOCALS
And was I wrong?
To take me back to
where I began
last time
when I said
I’d medicate
Decipher when it breaks
and so I’ll take

Ryan Chorus
We’re not the same we’ll break
We’re not the same, we’ll take
With tragic lives, we’ll fade
We’re not the same, away

I knew
When you
Were too
Some distance
Some distance
Away

I knew
When you
Were too
Some distance
Some distance
Away

RYAN VOCALS
With everything that I have,
and everything that I am

ALEX VOCALS
So take me back
to where I belong
and use me
and I’ll run
I’ll run!

I knew
When you
Were too
Some distance
Some distance
Away

I knew
When you
Were too
Some distance
Some distance
Away

RYAN VOCALS
We’re not the same
We’ll break
ALEX VOCALS
We’re not the same
We’ll break

I knew
When you
Were too
Some distance
Some distance
Away

I knew
When you
Were too
Some distance
Some distance
Away
Track Name: Burning It Down
Verse 1
So cute
but you sure are shy
Enough for me
to show you
what’s mine

I’ve got
somewhere to be
pretty sure…
but my arms are heavy
from my body
and ooh...
from my body

Chorus
Burning it down
before you get in
girl on the ground (feeling so good)
but
i’ve just started
you only know
that i really was lost
i’m burning it down
burning it down

Verse 2
Give my body back
I’ll get my body back
Pretty heavy
Try to instigate
What you want to make
About me

You’ve got your head
Down to your waist
So much
that I can’t hesitate

Burning it down
before you get in
girl on the ground
but
i’ve just started
you only know
that i really was lost
i’m burning it down
burning it down
burning it down

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK/ MANDOLIN-BASS SOLO

Chorus
Burning it down
before you get in
girl on the ground
but
i’ve just started
you only know
that i really was lost
i’m burning it down
burning it down
burning it down
Burn it down!
Track Name: Time Bomb
Verse 1
And hey boy!
What do you say?
Why don’t we take this
To your house
Oh I don’t mind
If I might tremble
What do you want from me?
What’s in your head?
What’s in your head?
What’s in your head?

Chorus
Take me to the front
Take me from the back
Oh!
Pick up, pick up
Oh you’re just such a mess
Take me to the front
Take me from the back
Oh!
Pick up, pick up
Oh you’re just such a mess

Verse 2
But I really want to know
What do you
Want from me
Want from me
I can treasure
Is it a time bomb?
Does it explode?
Is it your head?
Your head?

Chorus
Take me to the front
Take me from the back
Oh!
Pick up, pick up
Oh you’re just such a mess
Take me to the front
Take me from the back
Oh!
Pick up, pick up
Oh you’re just such a mess

Post-Chorus
But I really want to know
What’s in your head?
I really want to
I really want to
But I can’t…

Ryans Bridge
All in all, pretend
We could have been something else
Honestly pretend
for whatever you’re fighting for.
I could never play a fool,
unless you wanted me to
Honestly pretend.

What you say?
Track Name: Patience
Verse 1
A picture perfect plan
Separate behind these walls
Who I am
Is not what
I became

So take me back
I don’t know when this will pass
Always been
a magnifying glass

Chorus
Patience
Who I am is where I’ll
Make it
Who can strip me?
from my
Patience
Who can tear me?
from my
Patience
Patience

Verse 2
We both choose
but one of us
has chose
to die
Half my heart
and half
my telling lies
So take the road
I don’t know when I will come
always been someone
who’s had to
roam

Chorus
Patience
Who I am is where I’ll
Make it
Who can strip me?
from my
Patience
Who can tear me?
from my
Patience
Patience, Patience

Bridge
Two worlds below

Track Name: Barricade
Verse 1
I’m not saying
That I am giving up
You’ve got to know
That I’m looking for ways
To stay along
With your vantage point
I know that I can
Make an escape
A magical place
A tropical destination waits
Too scared, but I’m in
Oh baby I’m just checking in
(Oh baby I’m just stepping it up)

Chorus
Misplaced my lover
But I want to get this straight…
Replaced you
For another
But I want to hear you say
Didn’t I?
Didn’t I?
Didn’t I barricade you in?
Didn’t I?
Didn’t I?
Barricade

Verse 2
Give me me one shot boy
I’ll let you pretend
Spin me like a top boy
and we can begin
Give me one time
A minute away
Ready, let’s go
And get on with this day
I’m feeling freaky yeah!

Chrous
Misplaced my lover
But I want to get this straight…
Replaced you
For another
But I want to hear you say
Didn’t I?
Didn’t I?
Didn’t I barricade you in?
Didn’t I?
Didn’t I?

Chorus
Misplaced my lover
But I want to get this straight…
Replaced you
For another
But I want to hear you say

Track Name: Send Your Love
Verse
Too old
Too fast
Not enough
To keep up
With the runaway dreams
That held me

Too bored
Unsure
Not enough
To keep me
From getting down
To turn around

Chorus
Then you send me all your love
Then you send me all your love
Then you send me all your love
Haven’t you wanted this
To get strained?

Refrain
Think you’re really uptight
Paralyzed
Think you’re really uptight
Paralyzed
I’m not you
You’re not me
So I guess I’ll have to get it
I’m just saying
Just once
Oh baby
Get it
No Bones
Forget it
No Bones
Forget it

Chorus
Then you send me all your love
Then you send me all your love
Then you send me all your love
Haven’t you wanted this
To get strained?

Refrain
Think you’re really uptight
Paralyzed
Think you’re really uptight
Paralyzed
No reason
To talk about
My dreams…
No reason
To talk about…

Bridge
Baby I...
Came on strong
Like I did before ya
But honey I...
Will warm these bones
Like I did before ya
But oh I…
I try…
But still I
Can’t lead
You on

Oh
Yeah
