Track Name: no more bottle rockets
you know i'm lying, too
it's better if i do
what should i say?
it's harder to convince
when words don't make sense

the only things that follow me
are my shadow and my past
they're both too long
i wish they'd disappear
but i see you in both:
dark and never-ending snow
and fires in our fireplaces
burning down our house

why won't you sing when i'm around?
why won't you sing when i'm around?
why would i leave you lying down?
why won't you sing when i'm around?
Track Name: what the situation suggests
what's going on
is nothing more than what the situation suggests
it's not an illusion
this is a problem
who's moving on?
nothing hurts worse than invitation to kiss
i know when pity
turns into a problem

if i ever would've known you as well as i'd liked…
it's all right
cause we were getting high that night
in your brothers car
yeah we were getting high that night
torn apart

what's going on
is nothing more than what the situation suggests
it's not an illusion
this is a problem
i'm betting on
the fact that you'll never admit your expectations exist
i know when forgiveness
becomes a problem

if i ever would've known you as well as i'd liked…
it's all right
cause we were getting high that night
in your brothers car
yeah we were getting high that night
torn apart
if i would've lied that night
i could've gone so far
but we were getting high that night
in your brother's car
Track Name: drop the snow
it's about that time of year again… to make a bad decision and fight for validation from someone i hate. and hate's a strong word; in fact, it's the strongest thing i've got. if i could stop staring, then i could stop her. i'm trying. i'm trying. i'm not.
would you grab my arm at the party if you saw me smoking alone? or would stand just close enough for me to know?

it's about that time of year again… to make a bad decision and fight for validation from someone i hate. i know hate's my favorite word. it has been since i was a kid. if i could stop staring, then i could stop her. i'm trying. i'm trying. i'm over it.
