Track Name: Cheap Thrills
We don’t settle for cheap thrills
Because our sights are set to kill
Been through it all, fought til the end
Putting it in with our best friends

But somehow somewhere along the way
We lost sight of what we always say
“Keep your dreams in sight, and don’t fall short”
Until a crash and a burn left us spiraling out

I’ve had enough of the continuing noise
We’re throwing away what could be our last choice

You always said
We don’t settle for cheap thrills
But now we’ve got a role to fill
When we thought we were off the ground
That’s when things came crashing down

And then somehow along the way
We lost sight of what we always say
“Keep your dreams in sight, and don’t fall short”
This crash and a burn left us spiraling out
Track Name: That's MR. Asshole To You
Its three in the morning and im still awake
Staring at the cracks in the wall
That made me feel so lost before

I told myself I wouldn’t make these same mistakes again
But here we are now so you can

You can call me what you want
But if you can see whats inside of me,
Address me with some dignity

You can say that its not me
And even though I’m at my worst degree
I’m still your same old baby

Don’t use those words, youre scaring me,
I gave you my word, and had no second thought
I could die, the things I do that make you feel so distraught
Track Name: Crash Test
I'm not a perfect man
My imperfections and my flaws bubble up and overflow from the top
I get by day to day
Though I'm plagued with insecurities, they fill from head to toe, I'm giving up.

A day in the life of me is more than I wanna see
A crash test and I'm the dummy.

Everyday is the same routine
A sinking ship in a boring scene
Captains orders: Save yourselves
My chances go to hell

Lost in the crashing waves
Just when i think I'll hit the surface, I get pulled back down below
Life's like a fucking game
And if that's the case you say, then I'm falling far behind, pick me up.
Track Name: It's A Beautiful Sight, Isn't It?
I always look back to the time
The time when I didn’t have anyone
Waiting for her to come along
And now here I am, writing this song

You opened the door and then you opened my eyes
Didn’t dismiss me like with other guys
It sounds corny, and a little immature
But this life is the one thing I’m sure

It’s like every day is a reminder
Of how I’ll always be with her
And when nothing goes your way
You know that you and me is one thing that’ll never change

The times I’ve had with you were better than you know
When spending the day with you was better than the show
At the end of rough days, it puts it all into perspective
We’ll shut the rest out, ‘cause this world can be aggressive.

It’s like every single day is a reminder
Of how I’ll always be with her
And when nothing goes your way
You know that you and me is one thing that’ll never change
Track Name: I Need To Know
Well the talk on the street
Says you might go solo
A good friend of mine
Saw you leavin' by your back door

I need to know, I need to know
If you think you're gonna leave
Then you better say so
I need to know, I need to know
'Cause I don't know how long I can hold on
If you're makin' me wait, if you're leadin' me on
I need to know

Who would've thought that
You'd fall for his line
All of a sudden
It's me on the outside
I need to know
I need to know
Baby, I need to know
