I can’t stand another night But I can’t pull the cord before I’ve tried a hundred times or more Can’t sit here waiting for you to show me how you’ve grown You’re around and I keep wasting all my time wondering Who am I if I keep coming back for more? You’re around and I keep wasting all my time wondering Who am I if I keep hanging round and round? Hanging round and round until it hurts Learning more with every word I can’t hold back until the morning Feelings change with some persuasion But I can’t stand to be the reason you can’t slow down When the anchor breaks You're still holding on in the same place You’re around and I keep wasting all my time wondering Who am I if I keep coming back for more? You’re around and I keep wasting all my time wondering Who am I if I keep hanging round and round? Well I’m done hanging around but you can take this for what it’s worth

Full Circle 01:53
Sell it to another head Sell it to an empty bed I don’t wanna see you hanging around but I know I will cause you’re still in town I know that you know it’s not an option Anyone can see it Can’t you just believe it’s not worth fighting for? Everyone knows that I’ve got no right to complain, but I learned my part I stumbled out and I can only say I’m running full circle Running full circle (I don’t want you around when I’m running low on self esteem, on anything)
3.
You’re taking off again I don’t know how or when Could trace back everything I’ve got to you Hope I don’t forget, despite what we went through Don’t let go of the things you love they’re never gonna come back home She said look around and say goodbye I didn’t know it’d be for the last time There wasn’t much that I could do Couldn’t save her but I wanted to Don’t let go of the things you love they’re never gonna come back home Learned to drive on your Cadillac Deville Learned to back out through a bird feeder Said I wouldn’t regret anything I’ve done for you Can’t say that panned out but I can’t see what I could do
4.
Could you take four more Would it kill you to think of what you’ve done? Can’t spend your whole life crawling back and forth As if I had a choice I spent my whole life digging through the mystery I buried you, for what it’s worth It never worked You’re a ghost Lost but creeping through my bones You should know The last chance you had was the first to blow I don’t want to lose you I want you gone and forgotten Removed without a trace There’s no point in talking Just set those sails like you did before
5.
Lens 04:39
What happened to the first call? Why is it always the last? You’re circling through a tight spot You jumped in too fast Burned a hole in your pocket Ran out of gas But it’s not like somebody flipped your lens and forced you not to see Struck a chord with the same old company They’re not growing and you’re left in between Lot’s happened since the first night Why is it always the last that keeps me holding this glass Feels like I’m coming up short when you miss the mark on this shaky rapport Left biting my tongue when you’re stuck in the same place with no intentions But it’s not like somebody flipped your lens and forced you not to see Struck a chord with the same old company they’re not growing and you’re left in between I’ve got trouble letting go I’ve got trouble letting in You can only move as fast as this weight you’re dragging But it’s not like somebody flipped my lens and forced me not to see If I sit down and think about the grand scheme what matters to you is what matters to me

My teeth are gonna fall out of my head I don’t know when Only found proof of one that’s left without a filling Better strap on a helmet and protect it while I can I’ve been living restless Looking for the next escape plan Better left aside I’ll just stay away I can’t let it in They say I’ve got acid wear Always in and out of reflux Keep setting myself up for it Can’t win if you don’t stop Living restless Looking for the next escape plan Better left aside I’ll just stay away I can’t let it in I got bored of getting better Now I’m bored of figuring it out But I’m only getting better Just keep moving, keep it up

Muscle Baby 03:47
At 27 the body falls apart Stubborn and relentless Limb by limb I feel it letting go It’s all I’ve got to live with Run over, stretched so thin I don’t know how to work around it Come over, but make it quick I don’t have time for anything 27 brought a full collapse Stubborn and relentless Learn to let it in, to sit with all your doubts It’s all I’ve got to live with Run over, stretched so thin I don’t know how to work around it Come over, but make it quick I don’t have time for anything Leave when you wanna go Just leave it, you wanna go Run over, stretched so thin I don’t know how to work around it Come over, but make it quick I don’t have time for anything

RMA 02:25
You think you’re so intellectual A pioneer in the art of observation Well I’m sick of the same shit I’ve been hearing for years I’m not in it to hold your hand I’m here ‘cause I need it Book me by the hour Come to my big talks Is it possible to listen without planning my stage plot I’m sick of the same shit I’ve been hearing for years I’m not in it to hold your hand I’m here ‘cause I need it I don’t know who would last that long if they were talking to you

Lawn Boy 2.0 04:33
Fade into me Can’t seem to move an inch My head won’t sleep Slipping back to where I started A lack of daylight, I’m rotting Can’t afford to sleep Out of touch and losing energy Same as it seems Every day’s a new thrill I can’t leave Slipping back to where I started Knew this day would find me hiding Circle the drain til I evaporate and you leave me be Creative problems beg creative solutions I've got creative problems I’ll find a creative solution

Highway driving 59 to 60 Jealousy, favorite tune I found static in the cold New England air It’s always cutting through I’ve been tangled up in memories Can’t find the worth These passing glances keep me up at night Thoughts just spill out, not feeling fine I wanna change the mood, pack it up and leave here soon Is it too late to get it right Can’t get it right Never thought I’d see the exit numbers growing Who knew they made 262 Still got the same disc in the dash since I was young Always could depend on you Quick to argue, first to lay it out Quick to lose These passing glances keep me up at night Thoughts just spill out, not feeling fine I wanna change the mood, pack it up and leave here soon Is it too late to get it right Can’t get it right I wanna leave it alone I want to grow, learn to wait, learn to feel like I can trust I wanna leave it
