Track Name: Confetti
Why does this weigh a ton
Why does it feel like someone’s got a gun
Aimed at me

Ignore opinions, that’s the goal
Don’t change your shape cause that’s not rock and roll
If you ask me

They say it’s a difference in personal taste
And why would you even care anyway
But you just want to see those critical lips speak verbal confetti


Don’t move too fast but try your best
Expect nothing and hope for even less
That’s how you get by

They say it’s a difference in personal taste
And why would you even care anyway
But you just want to see those critical lips speak verbal confetti


I’ve been running for too long, can’t remember what I want


Feed approval to me
Even if it’s fake
I’m tired of this chase
Track Name: Feedback Fleet
Trapped under fluorescent lights
Cautious conversations to avoid lethal bites
Half of them are in disguise
Polite attentive faces paired with hungry eyes


Stuck in the bull ring when they said
“You picked the worst day to wear red”
You know they’re coming for your head
They wanna see you run



Static tones fill up the air
Steady backseat, feedback fleet running down the stairs
Thoughts are going off like flares
Something is building up in there



Stuck in the bull ring when they said
“You picked the worst day to wear red”
You know they’re coming for your head
They wanna see you run
Track Name: A Flare In The Dark
Sleep deprived with tried eyes I’m staring at the wall
It’s 1am but the thought of you tends to slow my heart to a crawl

Oh I need to know where to start
Fire a flare into the dark

S.O.S look out for smoke
Love letters in Morse code
S.O.S look out for smoke
Love letters in Morse code

Darling please don’t remind me how many miles lie between you and I
It’s pretty late to drive across this state but I’m willing to try

S.O.S look out for smoke
Love letters in Morse code
S.O.S look out for smoke
Love letters in Morse code
Track Name: Minnesota
That look is poisonous but this you know
Who needs fangs when you’ve got eyes like those
To ask a question could be dangerous
You know the answer oh you’re just oblivious

Fictitious horror stories in your head
They sit there simply waiting to be fed
Pull out the wires and unwind the gears
Your head’s a complicated mess of fears

It’s in your head, let me remind you
Track Name: Wolves
Lately I’ve been talking with the wolves
Turns out they’re not as bad as they say

Just a little misunderstood, yeah
They don’t even like the way blood tastes

They tried to say they’re sorry
They said they didn’t mean no harm
But with each apology, she gets more angry
Causing the wolves to run away

They’re quite the considerate type
I know that it’s hard to believe
They like to play their games by night, yeah
Sometimes they act carelessly

They tried to say they’re sorry
They said they didn’t mean no harm
But with each apology, she gets more angry
Causing the wolves to run away
Track Name: Ambitious Kids
It’s something ambitious kids do for fun
But are you hoping you’re the lucky ones
Will they listen, will they be impressed
Or will they hit play and wish that they heard less

I’m back to you
I’m back to you
I’m back to you and you’re back too

“I’m in a band” that’s what everyone says
Those words have been heard that tire’s lost its tread
If they talk enough eventually they’ll sound cool
But then they’ll just fade out in a month or two

I’m back to you
I’m back to you
I’m back to you and you’re back too
Track Name: Distance
I wanna fold you up—take you with me

I wanna feel you by my side
In case I’m ever in need of that feeling only you give to me
A hurricane that you can’t see
Addiction’s always stronger than deadly disease

Oh it’s the nights up late
Bitter cold days
The long drives alone
When I wish I could reach inside my pocket and unfold you

I wanna sew your shadow into my coat
I wanna always feel you near
And cherish you like a hand written note that I’ve read to myself
A thousand times
Memorized every single line
Every dot of every “i” in each line

Oh it’s the nights up late
Bitter cold days
The long drives alone
When I wish I could reach inside my pocket and unfold you
Track Name: Jay
They only choose to taste the bitter parts of you
You’re so much more than that oh if only they knew
All those things that you heard, they’re all undeserved
You’re worth more than they could afford

They’ll never know you the way I know you
But they’re good at talking with their eyes shut closed

I say you’re just a word that sometimes gets misspelled
I’ve seen the part of you that’s known by no one else
You’re unreplaceable, eleven years loyal
You’re something most people can’t find

They’ll never know you the way I know you
But they’re good at talking with their eyes shut closed
Track Name: Knifepoint Robbery
If you ask me I don’t believe that things have changed at all
But then again they say I’m naïve and a little gullible
Maybe I’m just afraid to turn on the lights
Don’t wanna know if things aren’t the same
I’d rather hear a lie

It’s taking us, it’s glamorous, it’s the kind of stuff that we show off
Because we like the way it makes us feel
Oh we’re running this race
Acting older than our age
Always longing for the next page
Speeding in the highest gear more out of control than I feared
Let’s just stop this thing right here and live right now

It’s time to fold, hand in your cards and your weekend nights
Giving up your youth should be hard but they didn’t even fight
Why are you acting older, you’re young so stay out late
After all didn’t your mother ever tell you to act your age

It’s taking us, it’s glamorous, it’s the kind of stuff that we show off
Because we like the way it makes us feel
Oh we’re running this race
Acting older than our age
Always longing for the next page
Speeding in the highest gear more out of control than I feared
Let’s just stop this thing right here and live right now

Oh they say we’re having fun
Oh they tell us that we’re the ones


It’s taking us, it’s glamorous, it’s the kind of stuff that we show off
Because we like the way it makes us feel
Oh we’re running this race
Acting older than our age
Speeding in the highest gear more out of control than I fear
Let’s just stop this thing right here can we just make it stop
I’m just scared and on the fritz, my hands are clenched into tight fists
Let’s just put an end to this, can we just end it now
They say growing up is fun but it’s taking us one-by-one
Maturity’s the smoking gun, it’s the culprit of the crime
I think my face is turning red, I think I’m gonna loose my head
Can we just stop this thing right here can we just make this stop
Track Name: Nights Like A Noir
Tell me why it seems that nights like these slow down too soon
Running out of steam usually means we’ll flicker out

It’s Russian Roulette we play
I hate to watch you drive away

What if we just stayed here to watch the storm
Cause we don’t mind the rain
No we don’t mind the rain
We don’t mind

Tell me why it’s always so hard to say departure words
I don’t wanna go, we talk in code
We’re in disguise

What if we just stayed here to watch the storm
Cause we don’t mind the rain
No we don’t mind the rain
We don’t mind

Passenger seat, you playing Stars, neon signs reflecting off your car
Mexican Coke, a bar of Kinder, LED dashboard candlelit dinner
Laptop Noirs, femme fatales, murder scented like Honeysuckle
Styrofoam cup, dollar coffee, late nights with you

What if we just stayed here to watch the storm
Cause we don’t mind the rain
No we don’t mind the rain
We don’t mind
Track Name: Parallels
Growing up they say is rough
But I don’t think I could prepare enough for this
Can’t slip these handcuffs off my wrists

Summer nights, 2am
Remember how monsoon rains would end
Those late nights that we’d spend in the park
Parallels—together yet apart

Growing up, ran out of luck
We’re stuck in a rut
Walked right into a trap where we don’t see each other for two weeks

Summer nights, 2am
Remember how monsoon rains would end
Those late nights that we’d spend in the park
Parallels—together yet apart
Track Name: Matchsticks
This flame is burning fast—I hope that this matchstick will last
Just long enough to light this lamp to help me through the night

Tell me something I want to hear
Make it anything I really don’t care

It’s just one of my traits—always over exaggerates
Honestly I’m afraid but of what
I can’t really say

Tell me something I want to hear
Make it anything I really don’t care

I just hope they’re right
Maybe I’m just losing it tonight

I just think that it is a shame to waste
Opportunity is hard to replace

DO DO DO DO DO DO DO
