Track Name: Dusk [Acoustic]
Staring into our eyes they always told us it wouldn't work out
and they aren't wrong but i'll be damned if they are right
They've got you sweating sweating second guessing
careful not to slip on the floor Like you've got a choice
So just baby turn it up

I've been living in the past since the door was closed on you
The lights were all still on It wasn't a choice so much as an out that I
had to take And this is getting me down through the ground
The pop punk has me over and out, my friends got me lifted
But the sunset always reminds me of you

Careful honey because we're taking on water we're running on empty
and these fumes aren't the type that make you forget that all your
answers can't be found at the bottom of a bottle So we won't give up give up! till the crowd goes home You better throw the towel in or we won't know So turn it up

I've been living in the past since the door was closed on you
The lights were all still on It wasn't a choice so much as an out that I
had to take And this is getting me down through the ground The pop punk has me over and out my friends got me lifted
But the sunset still reminds me of you

Streaks of red cross the sky The horizon burst to flames and embraces the earth
We went through the best of the best and the worst of the worst
together There's no bridge to burn, just a river that stands as a testament to what we stand for

I've been living in the past and I can't take it Look into our eyes and you just might see that this is where I belong I dare you to challenge it We've dug our heels in This is where we make our stand
Track Name: Call It [Acoustic]
There's a world of hurt in store for you
Just come back home to see what you're missing
Your plans went south and there's nowhere left to hide the fires that you set
All of the innocence you've burned

We've had it up to here with you
There's no escape
This shouldn't come as a big surprise to you

We're cutting you off tonight
Together, we're taking down the sky
This place will look like a graveyard
(Good riddance to you, we're shipping off)
There is nothing left for us here
When I look around there's no one else to blame except myself
For enabling a thought of grandeur
And not thinking it would be hard to know
When we're in over our heads unable to fend
But unlike you, I've got heart, I've got soul

Call it I'm leaving for the last time
I don't care about your right or wrong just
Need an ocean behind me
And when it all falls apart, like it's accustomed to
It won't be anything new, we'll be better off than-

Keep your head out of the clouds if you know what is good for you
If not, keep on digging your own grave

You've finally reached the point of no return there's no escape, this shouldn't come as a big surprise for you

We're cutting you off tonight
We are rewriting the books and taking back what is ours
(This is it, you're done, you're through.)
We've done all that we can to make sure you're aware there's no one else to blame except yourself for abusing words of grandeur with a smile
And not knowing when you're in over your head, unable to fend for yourself
It's too bad you don't know what we mean when we say, I've got soul

Call it I'm leaving for the last time
I don't care about your right or wrong just need an ocean behind me
And when it all falls apart like it's accustomed to
It won't be anything new, we'll be better off than you
Track Name: On Hudson [Acoustic]
You already know what I've got to say
about how everything is slipping away
cuz' you're broken and not
half the man you claim you used to be

I'm so tired
of taking all this to heart
weathered down dead weight
is all you can take from me

It always begins
with the keys in the ignition
with a tank full of fire and our eyes on the road
it won't matter who greets us, the sun or the moon

Take this one step at a time
take it from me cuz' I've got rocks in my shoes
that keep my blisters company

(and I'm done)
Working day and night just to see you lose
track of everything you're trying to prove to the
monsters who will turn their backs on
you again if they

have the chance and they always will
give me a name just to keep them talking
we won't run, they can't hide

It always begins
with the keys in the ignition
with a tank full of fire and our eyes on the road
it won't matter who greets us, the sun or the moon

Take this one step at a time
take it from me cuz' I've got rocks in my shoes
that keep my blisters company
