Track Name: One Coast to Another
One coast to another, hearts on the line of every state, and every city skyline and I wish, on every crack of lightning that you'll miss, me a little more with every day.

I hope these postcards find you well. These roads all look the same how are you? Did you get the letters that I sent, I wrote them on some
truck stop place mats.

Smoke or Fire, they've become the anthem of this van, and their words they make so much sense you see, because every redwood and every canyon," they don't mean shit to me because I didn't see them with you.”

I hope these postcards find you well. These roads all look the
same how are you? Did you get the letters that I sent, I wrote them on some truck stop place mats.

We built these homes in each others hearts, so no matter where we go we're always coming home.

I hope these postcards find you well. These roads all look the same how are you? Did you get the letters that I sent, I wrote them on some truck stop place mats.
Track Name: Swept Away
See the clouds on the eastern horizon. Keep searching for a clearer route but there's none to be found, so on I go. The crews abandoned this ship, lifeboats all headed for home. If I had a wife and kids, I'm sure that I'd be missed but this journey I've fallen into is all my own.

I've got nowhere to go, when the storm comes in I'll hide below. With the rats and the rations I'll be swept away.

I think back on past regrets but I find none. I close my eyes and think of her, as the water fills my lungs.

I've got nowhere to go, when the storm comes in I'll hide below. With the rats and the rations I'll be swept away.

And the waves, washed me ashore.
Track Name: Dominoes
You sing the sweetest songs, desperately seeking love and affection, and you're such a sweetheart you get the desired reaction. So lets be honest, because it never seemed to fit in your plans, and it's never
required when everyone but me is your biggest fan.

Dominoes were never my thing, they take too long to set up, just to fall back down again and we may never get up.

So now you're nowhere to be found, but the aftermath will long be around. In every note and every song, a reminder of what went so wrong.

Dominoes were never my thing, they take too long to set up, just to fall back down again and we may never get up.

Honesty or sweetness, is the choice that hard to make, honesty or sweetness, her heart was yours to break.

Dominoes were never my thing, they take too long to set up, just to fall back down again and we may never get up.
Track Name: 72 Hours
My knees are cramping because I haven't moved in the last eight hours, my head is aching from the lack of water breaks. I bunch my hoodie up into a ball, stick it between the window and my head, I
let these pages fall and I pass out again.

But I, I don't want to go back home, I don't want to go back
home no not tonight. The foothills gave way to the mighty Rockies and we broke free of the storm into the great plains. The roof is leaking and these seats are never spaced evenly apart. The screams and the smells from the back almost broke my heart.

But I, I don't want to go back home, I don't want to go back home no not tonight, and I, I don't want to go back home, I don't want to go back home no not tonight.


At the sixty-fourth hour in the Windy City morning, my ankles the size of tree trunks, I began to question these motives. One can argue sanity is relative, but everything faded to memory as I awoke, to that New York skyline.

I don't want to go back home, I don't want to go back home no not
tonight, and I, I don't want to go back home, I don't want to go back home no not tonight. And I, I don't want to go back home, I don't want to go back home no not tonight. No I don't want to go back home tonight.
Track Name: Almost Anywhere
How did you do it, what did you use to rationalize, such a fucked up situation if you knew it would happen would you maybe have tried, to make your life, turn out a little different. Would you trade it all, if you knew you never had to say goodbye?
How did you pull it together so fast, two young kids looking up to you with eyes that ask, what the hell do we do now? In those eyes, did you see the same thing that you always had, or did they just remind you of what was gone, what you'd never ever have again?

I hope you know how great you did, keeping it together and raising your kids, and no matter what you believe no one can ever take away those memories.

On a cold November day, with one phone call it was all taken away, and we're sorry but we'll never have an explanation. You convinced
us all you were so strong, all you wanted was to fall apart, picked up the pieces and moved right into a new start.

I hope you know how great you did, keeping it together and raising your kids, and no matter what you believe no one can ever take away those memories.

Always remembered by an etching in stone, never forgotten by those that you had known. Loved the most by the one who stood by you, and would follow you to almost anywhere.

I hope you know how great you did, keeping it together and raising your kids and no matter what you believe no one can ever take away those memories.
Track Name: Take That Steve Perry
I can't get dry no matter how hard I try, in this damp and humid town. Living in a valley anywhere outside of California, ain't all that it's cracked up to be.

But here tonight, beneath these coloured lights,everything's alright. Here tonight, beneath these coloured lights, everything's alright.

All these city streets now littered with soaked cigarette butts are starting to miss my feet. All that I can think is how I loathe this transit system, as I take a somber seat.

But here tonight, beneath these coloured lights, everything's alright. Here tonight, beneath these coloured lights, everything's alright.

And we all just sing along.
Track Name: Tired
I used to feel like I was walking on eggshells, now I'm crawling on a hatchery floor. I used to see some potential in this now I'm always searching for the door, and it isn't worth the effort but I don't know
how to get out.

So many repercussions, and I'm cautious to a fault. If I saw a good way to get out this would be an easy task, but it's like a game of Jenga, one wrong move and it all comes crashing down.

Tell me, what am I supposed to say, every time I open my mouth your opinion's in the way, and I 'm tired of living this way.

I haven't felt this small, since I was a little child. Sent to my room solving puzzles on the floor, and I wish this was as easy as that Patrick Roy jigsaw was.

I know that we could fix this, with some communication, but I just feel like giving up and either way I know, we'll be back here again.

Tell me, what am I supposed to say, every time I open my mouth your opinion's in the way, and I 'm tired of living this way.
Tell me, what am I supposed to say, every time I open my mouth your opinion's in the way, and I 'm tired of living this way.
Track Name: Something Stable
I wake up every morning, check my statements online. Rarely a new deposit this gets harder all the time.
Maybe I need something stable, maybe I need a career. My life needs more routine but I'm going to give this one more year.

I know, everything will work out in the end, or so they say. Whoa I know everything will work out in the end, and that's what keeps me sane.

I've been living out of this bag, for the better part of a year, it holds everything that I need but every day I wish you were here. These highways far from our home, I know like the country roads, I used to walk on warm nights when I was twelve years old.

I know, everything will work out in the end, or so they say.
Whoa I know everything will work out in the end, and that's what keeps me sane.

I just keep driving just keep driving all night long.

I know, everything will work out in the end, or so they say.
Whoa I know everything will work out in the end,
and that's what keeps me sane.
Track Name: Miles Between
Well I don't know how long it will be, until I'm back here again. I promise you, I'll do my best to keep in touch until then. These miles between, never seem so far until I'm settled back at home, then the days turn to weeks, turn to months and sometimes years, some days I'm so alone.

Then I, just put on a record, and think to all the times we've had.

This one is for all of my friends from the Atlantic to the Pacific, where the highway ends, and this one is for all of my friends, no matter where you are tonight I'll keep you here with me.

We've braved these buses and slept out in the van, watched fireworks kick off July. From baseball games, to late night shows, stealing signs on the long drives home.
Campfires all through the night making the best of work and skipping out on school. Fishing on the lake, jamming in your parents basement, watching TV hungover all day.

Sometimes, I put on a record, and think to all the times we've had.

This one is for all of my friends from the Atlantic to the Pacific,
where the highway ends, and this one is for all of my friends, no matter where you are tonight I'll keep you here with me.
Track Name: Everything That You Do
Looking back, I can still remember, you coming down the stairs in your brand new summer dress. You were trying, you were trying to impress, but their was no need, I was already falling, head over heals for you.

I'll wait for you, I'll wait for you, it's everything that you do to me honey. You keep me, holding on.

Now here we are down by the river, sitting in our car, we used to walk but now it's just too far.

I'll wait for you, I'll wait for you, it's everything that you do to me honey. You keep me, holding on.

It was on a Tuesday, I don't remember details, but I could hear you singing your song. There were people, lining out the doorways, they all hummed along.

I'll wait for you, I'll wait for you, It's everything that you do to me honey. You keep me, holding on.
Track Name: Bored
I've got it again, no there's no light bulb going off above my head. It's that old, familiar feeling that I'm useless, just part of living the day to day, that living this life lends.

I don't know, just what I can do to fix this now, I'm throwing fists at the wall. I don't know, just what I can do to fix this now,
I'm sorry if I take it out on you.

I've got it again, little fits of motivation try to hold on and pull myself up. It's too hard, life's just a big game of chutes and ladders, always starting over, always starting over.

I don't know, just what I can do to fix this now, I'm throwing fists at the wall. I don't know, just what I can do to fix this now,
I'm sorry if I take it out on you.

I don't know, just what I can do to fix this now, I'm throwing fists at the wall. I don't know, just what I can do to fix this now, I'm sorry if I take it out on you.
Track Name: The Captain
So we gave it a shot, shot down in flames and we're bailing out now avoiding the pain. Before this wave breaks, better learn how to swim. Our bodies wind up on the shore when the tide comes in.

Loose lips sink ships, my lips are loose enough to sink this whole fucking fleet, so let the Captain go down with the ship, and we'll bury the past at sea.

So we gave it a shot, yeah right through the eye, and there was no pain, nobody cried. Before this wave breaks, better learn how to swim. Our bodies wind up on the shore when the tide comes in.

Loose lips sink ships, my lips are loose enough to sink this whole fucking fleet, so let the Captain go down with the ship, and we'll bury the past at sea.

Don't say we never tried.
