Track Name: The Great Unknown
So what, you've got a lot of nerve, don't you? Wrapped up in a silhouette of light. I think I heard you say "The world is ending." Guess not, 'cause we're both still alive. Do you remember when September was living? Yeah, the heart of life was still good to go. No one could touch us. We were living a dream, and we liked our music acoustic, pretty, and slow. I'm through trying to like the lightning. Something's gone, but finally I can see. You might be my last chance at a good thing. Bring back the way they looked at us when we picked up guitars and learned to cuss. This is our year, we can do what we want. Making history no one will see in a parking lot. Sometimes I make a list of the things I don't get right, a complicated dream of the scenes my mind made up. Did you lie when you said you missed me? Let's all drop this wish somehow. I'll be fine, I promise. I'm through trying to like the lightning. Something's gone, but finally I can see you're a good thing. You might be my last chance at a good thing. You might be my last chance.
Track Name: Breakfast Club
Hey Justin, did you hear about next year? (Yeah, yeah, yeah) They say they're taking all the people with big fears. Sammy you don't know what you're missing. I just wish somebody would listen. You see, well, Annie's got the same tattoo as me. My life is kind of like a future I can't see. When everything you know is make believe it's hard to tell what's real. Well, I've got the seasons and you've got the rain. Everyone I know's just waiting for the change. But I don't mind if we all stay the same. It's only Monday and I'm ready for next week. Would someone save this city already? You see, well, Peter Pan played me a sad song. He said, "I'm not home, but I'm not lost." You see, well, Annie's got the same tattoo as me. My life is kind of like a broken trampoline. When everything you know is make believe it's hard to tell what's real. Well, I've got the seasons and you've got the rain. Everyone I know's just waiting for the change. But I don't mind if we all stay the same. Hey summer, do you have to leave this year? 'Cause I'm running out of reasons to stay here. I mean, I'm perfectly fine with forgetting, but sometimes it's not that easy.You see, well, Annie's got the same tattoo as me. My mind's an old friend, but obviously. When everything you know is make believe it's hard to tell what's real. Well, I've got the seasons and you've got the rain. Everyone I know's just waiting for the change. But I don't mind if we all stay the same. Please don't go.
Track Name: New Version of the Old Me
Oh my god, you've gotta be kidding me. I heard the people talking shit on my TV screen. About how the next ten years are gonna end the world we know, as we know it. All my life I've like I'm incomplete. Well, here's the new version of the old me. Take everything you know right now and turn it into something new. Everything you lost before. Everything I said, oh well. I guess you're going, it's going away. All you want and more. Just like the songs we sang before. Just tuned up and turned into our own. Oh my god, I'm in love with the everythings. I can't believe I didn't see the way they stayed the same. Despite the fall out years and all the fears I never really got rid of. I got lost and forgot you still hate the signs, that they hold in your face when you say, "It's a waste to live this way." Tell me you don't know how much more you can take of this elevator life, where the people inside just keep leaving. All you want and more, just like the lies we dreamt before. Just grown up forgetting everything we were told.
Track Name: Kilo Riley
I pissed you off when I tried to stop the rain. You said, "Chad, I'm sorry, these songs all sound the same." Then I kissed your cheek like a gentleman, and whispered "Don't give up. All the monsters in this town will act they give a fuck, but I know they don't, they never even learned to love. This is what I've been dreaming of. I'll shade your eyes and tell you, "You look pretty..." even when you don't believe me. I'm a black hole with a personality. I love love and Rilo Kiley. Most days I hate the rain, sometimes I don't. It's a damn shame that you still hate change. One day you'll learn, everything everywhere's all the same with your eyes closed. Just give me two chords and I'll make you cry. It's the slow songs that'll change your life... When you're too tired to even say, "Where's my mind?" The drunks all sound like angels, singing all night from the barlight doors. I wonder when they'll realize no one's singing along? These roads all lead to nowhere, in the towns where no one sleeps. Seattle, Dallas and Nashville, a Marietta moon in New York City. Goddamn these thoughts of mine. I just need one good night, where things go right for once and my whole life doesn't explode. Because seemingly it's a really really good thing to know you're invincible, but everybody ends up in the ground scared as hell of heaven, and whatever might be next.
Track Name: I Like The Future
Let's gang up on the stars and start a war with everything we don't want anymore. To hell with the hazards of the future. I'm here now, take me as you will. You say you saw God, but I'm guessing it's the drugs. If I'm supposed to believe I guess I fucked up. I'm not sure how many times I'll die, but I can bet you on how many I'll survive. Rest your head on my shoulder. Make believe it's all worth it 'till it's true. I know, I know, I know I sound reluctant, but I've never been more sure in my whole life that this is right. Let's gang up on the stars and start a war with everything we don't love anymore. To hell with the hazards of the future. I'm here now, take me as you will. When all else fails, let the music save your soul. I owe my whole damn life to accidents and rock and roll. I'm a flawed misconception on a stage. You might think it's you, but it's me I'm trying to save. From everything I know I'll never be. Ahh, fuck it, I'll be whatever I damn well please. Let's gang up on the stars and start a war with everything we don't love anymore. To hell with the hazards that we're used to. I'm here now, take me as you will. Rest your head on my shoulder. Make believe it's all worth it 'till it's true. I know, I know, I know I sound reluctant, but I've never been more sure of anything (of something) in my whole life.
