Track Name: New War
I feel it in the small of my back
Believe me, I’m starting to ache
I don’t know when that whistle blows
Or who I’ve got to pay
To get me out of this place
I finally feel like I’m starting to age
I need this diesel and dust out of my lungs
Before I suffocate

Things are going all wrong
My friends are all looking the same
Sold some hopes and dreams for apathy
And we’re looking for the delegate
Who says to keep our voice lows
But I’m thinking it’s a bit too late
Cause I’m crossing that line to the other side
I’m looking for a change of state

I’m tired of feeling so washed up tonight
And I’m tired of feeling sorry all the time for myself
So I’m looking for a place to stand to pledge this new war’s over
Raise the flag I’m not coming back again

I’m not letting this go
‘Cause my body’s breaking down
I’ll go it alone tonight

I feel it in the small of my back
Believe me, things are starting to change
And I’m crossing that line to the other side
Before it gets too late

I’m tired of feeling so washed up tonight
And I’m tired of feeling sorry all the time for myself
So I’m looking for a place to stand to pledge this new war’s over
Raise the flag I’m not coming back again
Track Name: Hospital Walls
Well, I woke up helpless knowing we were out of time
I swore by summer’s end that it would turn out fine
But that record player’s skipping
And the light is looking dim
If I could I’d follow you, my friend
If I could I’d see you at the end

With the city lighting up like stars
Rewind the truth to our youth
And feel our skin, free from all the scars
Rewind the truth to our youth
Before these hospital walls

Remember those days driving for the sake of driving
A bunch of kids with nowhere to go
And we wore it on our sleeves, our hearts tattooed like ink
Faded memories of those nights on Toronto streets

With the city lighting up like stars
Rewind the truth to our youth
And feel our skin, free from all the scars
Rewind the truth to our youth
Before these hospital walls

Don’t let go
I need to feel you close
I need to see you’re here with me

With the city lighting up like stars
Rewind the truth to our youth
And feel our skin, free from all the scars
Rewind the truth to our youth
Before these hospital walls
Track Name: Kings & Queens
It starts again
Same old story, same old night that doesn’t end
I can feel it in my blood, the whiskey setting in
It clouds my thoughts until I feel that calm again
It’s frustrating, but I need it

Make me all right, I can’t do this any more so I’m leaving
Turn around let’s hit the ground running
Turn around let’s hit the ground running

Bail me out, this ship is going down and I can’t sink in
Turn around let’s hit the ground running
Turn around let’s hit the ground running

I want you to see
But you’re not listening
I might be slurring my speech
The aftermath of you walking out on me

It starts again
Crowded rooms disconnect the night away
Kings and Queens fallout, I’m feeling myself decay
And I can’t watch you give them all another day
This is selfish, but I need it

Make me all right, I can’t do this any more so I’m leaving
Turn around let’s hit the ground running
Turn around let’s hit the ground running

Bail me out, this ship is going down and I can’t sink in
Turn around let’s hit the ground running
Turn around let’s hit the ground running
Track Name: Mystic Apes
It’s growing apparent
We’re running out of time
Such a fleeting existence
No, time ain’t on our side
And I’m losing interest
But feeling fine
No points for good intentions
I’m so sick of this afterlife

We’re looking for the ghosts of yesterday
Don’t want to speak or hear no evil, but that’s all we ever see
We’re looking for the ghosts of yesterday
Trying to be the kids our parents wanted us to be

This is getting confusing
All this movement from outdoors
We’re outside of ourselves
Bodies lifting off the floor
And I’m not quite sober
But feeling fine
If there were gates that I could count on
I’d still never be let inside

We’re looking for the ghosts of yesterday
Don’t want to speak or hear no evil, but that’s all we ever see
We’re looking for the ghosts of yesterday
Trying to be the kids our parents wanted us to be
Track Name: Wild Love
Let’s take a ride, put some miles between us and this place
Don’t sell me down the river, I know I can deliver us to better days
These streetlights are hanging, a warming glow to light our way
Wild love, you and I can break even

Batten down the hatches, our reaction time has faded down a shade
Paint it out by number, the colors will uncover how to make us stay
These streetlights are burning, keeping all the wolves at bay
Wild love, you and I can break even

Wild love, you and I can break even
Wild love, you and I can break
