Track Name: Yesterdays
I felt nostalgic before it had even ended
I put the arm back on my wrist watch and told you it was false
I caked on the euphoric nature of this moment
and counted all the leaves in the driveway to remember this

I slipped in my yesterdays and lost my todays
I slipped in my yesterdays and lost my todays

I sat in my bed and I replayed my yesterdays
heard the same song on the radio we heard that day
I could not distinguish between then now and now and then
i'll cut out all the mistakes but i'll have to wake up again
Track Name: I'm Still Here Waiting
Then the story goes just like this
and then you fucked it all up and you did it again
I'm smarter then the average man
but then I got it all wrong and then I kept going on

it's hard to feel like an optimist
because it'll just end the same like the day before last
and then the story goes just like this
and then you fucked it all up and you did it again

I'm still here waiting
I'm still here waiting
I'm still here waiting
I'm still here waiting

and then the story goes just like this
and then I kept you away and I slept wide awake
I just had to look away as the tide rolled in and
washed all away
Track Name: Building
I really really want to leave
this place, my home, the people that I know
they got the same face, same eyes, same clothes
same damn dead look on thier face

and I driven through the night
spotting all the city lights erased
the time lines replaced, excuse the mess
it's not yours change
because your mind is lonely place
and to the mask I couldnt kill,
you know you're still here
with me, leavings made you mean,
I guess i'll have to leave some more
I'll guess i'll have to leave some more

and I can't seem to rewind,
all i've left behind before
my mind's on the floor,
I see the face of stranger now
I guess i'll see where I go from here
and to the self I couldnt kill,
you know you're still here with me
leavings made you mean,
I guess i'll have to leave some more,
I guess i'l have to leave some more
Track Name: Blood's Cheap
and it's sick when you're in the thick of it all
stuck in the wheel of a broken machine
and all the clout you can cross off the top of your list
siffling through a paper day, ego in the fray

I just want to be alive like
when we were young and dumb
and everyone was the same

all the games in the city are wearing you thin
though tempting, the house always wins
at the end of the day is it really worth it?
scripted like you've heard it before
ego in the fray

I just want to be alive like
when we were young and dumb
and everyone was the same
I just want to be alive like
when we were sharp and bright
and not broken in

standing tall at the top of the pyramid, bloods cheap
and so are your words, ego in the fray
Track Name: Unknown Man
All the charlatans are yelling at the sky
what is all this space
I know it must be false
between the age of conception and the
death of this unknown man
I know i'll never know

I'll take it with face, all the what haves in place
all the educated guesses are better than none
so keep it down and take a number, until you get a sign
and get some answers

I blame it all on me, the quandaries in scene
I cant seem to go with the plot and breath
like theres nothing I cant see beneath
Track Name: The Movies
I cant believe it happened to,
it happend to me
I caught you alone,
I made you my own

it's just like the movies
it's just like the movies
it's just like the movies

it's just like the movies
I cant believe it happened to,
it happend to me
I caught you alone,
I made you my own
