Track Name: Rust Belt
What if we could pack the car
And drive on through the night
To get to LA
When we get to Hollywood
We'll stand where all our heros stood
Match our hands to old concrete
Pretend the prints are ours and keep believing
We're not dreaming

I've got a one-way ticket
all aboard a train headed for
New York City, opportunity
Gonna go to Madison Square
Plant a flower in the garden there
And watch it grow

Taller than the tallest building I have ever seen

It won't be long till we belong among the rarities
And I won't wait to deviate from the factory
I've always felt that this rust belt didn't fit right

It won't be long till we belong among the rarities
And I won't wait to deviate from the factory
I've always felt that this rust belt didn't fit right

It won't be long till we belong among the rarities release me from the factory and I
I won't wait to deviate from a diluted path I'm drowning in the neon bath and I've
Always felt that this rust belt
This rust belt felt a bit tight
Track Name: Catastrophe
You'll hear a lot of things without knowing me
You'll read and see what my eyes just saw

But I can't say things that I really mean
Unless you're near me
So come inside my head

You can call me a catastrophe and I won't disagree
If you wanna be sad till we're 63 than I will let you be

Communication lost in endless repeat
Meaning lost in fragmented beats

But I can't write things that I really mean
So please come quickly
So I don't lose this thought

You can call me a catastrophe and I won't disagree
If you wanna be sad till we're 63 than I will let you be

Call me a catastrophe and I won't disagree
If you're wanting me just to let you be
Than I will let you be
Yes I will let you be
Yes I will let you be
Yes I will let you
Track Name: Almost Me
Dead in my hand
Is your voice played back over a phone
Empty is my head
Devoid of thoughts or come-backs left to say

As you try to laugh me back
These months made me part from that
And your only vice that's left is me
More like almost me

Dead are our dreams
Feels so good to cover them with Earth
Bury them deep babe
No more children's names
Or apartment blocks that never were to be
Cause I'm trusting only what I see

As you try to laugh me back
These months made me part from that
And your only vice that's left is me
More like almost me

And what feels good
Will soon be storage space
All dusty and away
No longer common thought

As you try to laugh me back
These months made me part from that
And your only vice that's left is me

As you try to laugh me back
These months made me part from that
And your only habit left it's me
Almost me
Almost me

So cross the bridge at night babe
What do you see
A million little lights that just
Pass time as they please
So make one of your own
And don't wait up for me
Track Name: Just in Case
That day was so cold
My breath was thicker than the smoke
The snow mixed with the salt
Serpentine on the asphalt

All I have is this cloudy view
Of the naked trees and the grey afternoon
Anticipation keeps my nerves on fire

Stiff knees, lips cracked dry
Complexion of a ghost
Meets salty tears and puffy eyes
I cried and I don’t know why

And just in case you wanna leave
It’s ok, it’s ok
And just in case you don’t believe me
It’s ok, it’s ok

The words she chose to use
Slipped right through the armor protecting you
The pain distorts your face
Love never had such a bitter taste

Twenty years this fight’s been raging on
With nothing lost and nothing won
I can’t believe the things I’ve heard
Before the night’s even begun

And just in case you wanna leave
It’s ok, it’s ok
And just in case you don’t believe me
It’s ok, it’s ok
And just in case you can’t bear witness to my life
And just in case you want the easy way tonight

I sit alone paralyzed by fear
Like a child whose parent’s fights he can hear
Just waiting for morning to reappear
So we can disappear

Now the space in-between
Starts to bust at the seams
And you’re drifting away
And all that you can say is

Just in case you wanna leave
It’s ok, it’s ok
And just in case you don’t believe me
It’s ok, it’s ok
And just in case you can’t bear witness to my life
And just in case you want the easy way tonight
Track Name: Expose
Won't you reassure me
That I'll make it out alive
Don't you ignore me
Or say just to struggle by

Just tell me once
That I'll be fine
Just tell my ears
The words that they want to hear
Just tell me this
If I'm so strong
What have I got to show
What have I got to expose

I can bandage up all my bullshit
But when removed you can see the scars
And my shadow says I can't help it
I've fallen victim to this world of ours

Just tell me once
That I'll be fine
Just tell my ears
The words that they want to hear
Just tell me this
If I'm so strong
What have I got to show
What have I got to expose

Maybe if I act together
Than suddenly I'll really be
And who needs any outside comfort
When you can lie to yourself endlessly
Endlessly

Soothe my fear
Think what you wanna think
Say the word
Then carry on easily
Steal my slack
And my comfort
Just tell me
I've got your back any day

Soothe my fear
Think what you wanna think
Say the word
Then carry on easily
Steal my slack
And my comfort
Just tell me
I've got your back any day

Just tell me once
That I'll be fine
Just tell my ears
The words that they want to hear
Just tell me this
If I'm so strong
What have I got to show
What have I got to expose
