Track Name: Where Did The Time Go?
I’ve stared into these pictures
Memories I cannot re-enact
I can’t believe we grew up so damn fast (We grew up so damn fast)
Where did the time go?

I couldn’t tell you where I’ve been
I've seen enough to know where I've been
Seven years I slept with one eye open
Is it bad luck to stare at the clock?
Time is ticking and no one’s listening
On this phone, I’m on my own
On my own…

Tonight has defeated me
My past creeps up (to what I see)
To see what I see
I’ve been dreaming just to dream

I’ve been dreaming just to dream...

Where did the time go? (Why didn’t it go so slow?)
Where did the time go? (I don’t know, I don’t know)
At this point, I’m just trying to shut my eyes
Sometime before I see the sunrise

These memories will remind me I lived my life
When we were young and reckless
Now I’m just restless…
Track Name: The Dirty Streets
What do I do?
With no god damn clue
I’m just sitting here
And this can only sound so sincere

Before life passes me by
I will give this one last try
There’s something that gives me these heart beats
I will not wither into the dirty streets

Life’s too short to be bitter
Now I’ve never felt so sure
We’re living in a growing wasteland
I hold the world with a grain of sand

I’m pulling out the stops
Pushing hard until my body drops
This one’s for myself and no one else

Before life passes me by
I will give this one last try
There’s something that gives me these heart beats
I will not wither into the dirty streets

Of what I lived through before
When I didn’t know myself anymore (Anymore, anymore)

Sit back and hold on tight
Just put up one hell of a fight

There’s nothing else left to fear
It’s only going up from here

Before life passes me by
I will give this one last try
There’s something that gives me these heart beats
No, I will not wither into the dirty streets
Track Name: Enjoy The Little Things (Rule #32)
I smiled alone for the first time in years
Seems like it was so long ago
The feeling is so aged and refined
I cannot believe that this was so hard to find

Alone and desperate I was so lost (so lost)
What was I doing relying on lust?
What was I thinking to be that way? (that way)
This is such a joke, I'm gonna be okay

I am so, so ashamed
Hiding myself from this pain

I can't live like this anymore
There's gotta be a stop to this
I need to pick myself up
From the floor

Alone and desperate I was so lost (so lost)
What was I doing relying on lust?
What was I thinking to be that way? (that way)
This is such a joke, I'm gonna be okay (okay, okay)

Such a fucking ghost to myself
This is the first time I felt...

This is the first time I felt (okay with myself)
This is the first time I felt (in so long, so long)
This is the first time, this is the first (ooh, ooh)
This is the first time I felt (in so long, so damn long)

What was I doing
I'm gonna be okay
What was I thinking? (this is the first time I felt)
I'm gonna be okay
What was I doing?
I'm gonna be okay
What was I thinking?

What was I doing?
What was I thinking?
I'm gonna be okay
Track Name: Best For You
Knocked out, punched out
My teeth are on the floor
Bloodied and bruised, I've got nothing to lose
Picking myself back up has been the hardest thing to do (The hardest thing to do)

We've got a long time to go before we are where we need to be
We wont stop, we're not gonna quit
We're too far along for all that shit (whoa)
We're gonna keep moving on and on and on and on

Things can't always stay the same
They gotta change, you've gotta change
Nothing can last forever
You oughta spend some time, thinkin' about yourself
That's all we can do

Hold strong, when everything is gone
I've lost it all, we've lost it all
Its not the first time (woah, woah, woah, woah)

Things can't always stay the same
They gotta change, you've gotta change
Nothing can last forever
You oughta' spend some time, thinkin' about yourself
Because you're always thinkin' of someone else (You've got to do what's best for you)

Why should I try?
You give me nothing and I get less back
You give me nothing and I cant push back
Why should I try? (should I try?)
You give me nothing and I get less back
You give me nothing and I get held back

So why should we even try?
I give you nothing and you don't push back
So why do you even try?
I give you small things but you get held back

Why should we even try?
You give me nothing and I get less back
You give me nothing and I get held back

And when I'm gone,
You'll forget everything about me
So fucking fickle...
