Out There 02:46
Outside, night time Wandering on the streets I don't get out Much to bars or cafes Street light shine bright Pouring down on me My time I find Mostly in the shadows Secrets we've kept We don't ever speak Brick wall, so tall Between our conversation I feel so small I would never reach To the top of Steel and glass skyscrapers I know you are Out there somewhere Stand in the road Sky so high above me From near I hear A group of laughing people I smile inside It's so bittersweet To see them laughing Go around the corner I know you are Out there somewhere

Knows How To 02:01
She don't think too much of sex It's just a physical act She don't find it intimate When she's laying on her back Chorus: You can tell her how you think it is But you could never tell her how to live She's only gonna do what she does She knows how to fuck, but doesn't know that much about love People call her names like "slut" Her friends all talk behind her back She don't need much to give it up So only creeps will text her back Chorus Twenty-first century All girls were hurt back in the past So they don't get monogamy They don't think nothing's gonna last She says she's so glad that we're friends She wouldn't want to lose that Right before I slip it in I think I love her at climax Chorus

Not Cool 01:27
Man, you gotta stop hanging around with all those little girls People are starting to look at you like you're too immature How do you get your heart broken like every other weekend Spending all your money to pay for the drugs that keep them weakened How do you hang around making friends with all those little boys Going to the spot to try to pick up on that brand new noise Wearing all the fashions you see the kids wearing in the street Downtown in the city partying everyday of the week You're not cool, you're not cool Fuck off with your shitty attitude You're not cool You're not cool, you're not cool Fuck off with your shitty tattoos You're not cool Partying until the sun comes up, it helps if you do drugs Also helps to substitute for the feeling of being loved So when the party's over and you're not sure how to get back home Give them what they wanted so you don't gotta get high alone Reminiscing on them days, still wishing you were really young As if this quarter-life crisis ain't just childish and really dumb So to compensate you perpetuate always getting drunk Hanging out with kids, taking advantage of whatever comes You're not cool, you're not cool Fuck off with your shitty attitude You're not cool You're not cool, you're not cool Fuck off with your shitty tattoos You're not cool

Fly Away 02:00
Fly Away Getting bitten by it And the sky goes quiet

Live Free 02:31
When my alarm rings I don't want to get out of bed Always a hard thing Shaking the sleep out of my head I wake up starving Cook me up some eggs, toast some bread Pour me some coffee Staring down the day that's ahead So c'mon, so c'mon Get up get it out, put it down My job's so boring Every day I'm back here again Wish I was touring Instead of stuck here in Winnipeg But I keep working Digging myself out of this debt Just like my parents Grinding 'til the day that I'm dead So c'mon Live free with me Six-pack of Carling Gets me to where I want to get Ready for partying As soon as the juice touches my lips She pulls my heart strings The way she walks, swaying her hips She's got me following All the way with every step So c'mon

No Hand 02:45
No hand is not stained red from the blood No hand does not bear the weight of what's done No hand can pass through the fire unburnt No hand does not show the scar from it's birth No hand does not snatch fruit from the vine No hand does not go against the divine No hand will hand you what you want in this life No hand does not clench into fist to survive No hand reach down to lift you out of the earth No hand comes digging shining light through the dirt No hand come down through the clouds to touch mine No hand on no brow is giving sight to the blind

Ghost 02:36
I won't do you no favours So don't do none for me It may be best if we're strangers Walk past like we're nobody Take it down to the graveyard Dig down and bury it deep Let it fly away with angels And disappear like a dream Like a Ghost that is haunting A house in every room There's an issue that's daunting Connecting me still to you I guess it's just as much my mind As it exists physically On the inside and outside It is always with me I feel it right by my bedside Each night when I try to sleep I keep opening my eyes Like you'll be there to see Like a Ghost that is haunting A house in every room There's an issue that's daunting Connecting me still to you

Hey!Hey! 02:23
I don't want her to go I don't want her to go But in the morning I rose To find myself all alone The sun comes through my window It lifts me up with it's glow I sigh a little and go Get up and put on my clothes Hey!Hey! She don't want me to go She don't want me to go I get a call on my phone Then I'm back on the road I'm too restless she knows I have a void in my soul Same way I came I will go Just trying to fill up that hole Hey!Hey!
