Track Name: The Boss
Bruce Springsteen is walking on the moon.
I hope I get where I'm going real soon,
That old friend smoke greets me before noon.
Lay my head back down as the clouds settle in,
Bruce Springsteen is walking on the moon.

The president king uses poison very well.
I hope I get outta here before hell,
The old wise joker tries to tell
but no one can listen for the smell.
The president king uses poison very well.

There's a hole in your heart that you just can't fill.
Try to fill it up with tissues and all that fizzy swill,
try to forget it, try to bend your will.
There's a hole in your heart that you just can't fill.

Rambling around sure might do for now.
Get away from all the pictures that bring memories to your mind,
searching for the clouds that never frown,
rambling around sure might do for now.

Bruce Springsteen is walking on the moon.
I hope I get where I'm going real soon,
That old friend smoke greets me before noon.
Lay my head back down as the clouds settle in,
Bruce Springsteen is walking on the moon.

Track Name: These Years
The cards weren't all out on the table,
the dirt got swept into our heads.
For me every friendship was sacred,
for you it was something undead.

Who will you blame when one day you run out of names?
Who will you judge when there's no one left to begrudge?

I never will know what you could see.
The sand we got lost in was quick.
You held your own fear up above me,
made sandpaper look shiny and slick.

Who will you blame when one day you run out of names?
Who will you judge when there's no one left to begrudge?

You can long for the wrong things and worship your fears,
and we'll never get back these years.

I noticed that love makes you tremble.
Start marking names off your list.
The tears you can't stand must resemble
the time somebody did you like this.

Who will you blame when one day you run out of names?
Who will you judge when there's no one left to begrudge?

You can long for the wrong things and worship your fears,
and we'll never get back these years.
You can long for the wrong things and worship your fears,
and I'll never get back,
you'll never get back,
we'll never get back these years.

2012 Emily Stewart
Track Name: Bad Day
Walking around with your feelings on,
trying to decipher what went wrong.
Shuffling your feet as you move along,
asking yourself what's wrong with me?

Originality's a curse
when all you want to do is fill your purse.
Originality's a sin
when all you want to do is be like them.

Walking around with your headdress on,
scowl on your face as you hum that song.
Wicked wind blows north too,
you're asking everyone you meet
What's wrong with you?

Originality's a sin
when all you want to do is be like them.
Originality's a curse
when all you want to do is fill your purse.

2014 Matty Sheets
Track Name: Change
You're hot on my mind, and
you're bad for my health
baby, you can leave me,
but you can't leave yourself.
Unfold your arms, and
lift up your head,
you might realize you're not
mad, you're just scared

Change takes some believing
and this life ain't very long.
The things you're tired of feeling,
will still be with you when you're gone.

I told you the day
that we said I do,
all my mistakes were what
brought me to you.
now I feel the pain,
and I feel the burn.
Was I the mistake
that brought you to her?

Change takes some believing
and this life ain't very long.
The things you're tired of feeling,
will still be with you when you're gone.

When you're gone,
when you're gone,
after we're through
carrying on.

After the fight,
when we're through taking shots,
I can feel through the darkness
the love we forgot.
Unfold your arms,
hold onto me tight.
Baby, fear ain't no reason
to give up tonight.

Change takes some believing
and this life ain't very long.
The things you're tired of feeling,
will still be with you when you're gone.

When you're gone,
when you're gone,
I don't wanna say,
I don't wanna say,
so long.
