After Party 02:50
After Party I was walking up the driveway sliding through the door everybody's looking my way don't know what for like I'm not supposed to be here don't know the code you can't choose where you come from only where you go lights are all on and the music is loud everyone raise a fist everyone shout police are here and they’re kicking us out they’re kicking us out how’d we end up at the after party did I show up at the wrong address are we a part of the drunk majority or just another uninvited guest in the morning it’s a different story when everybody’s cleaning up the mess I don’t believe in the after party I don’t believe in it, can’t believe it some started a bonfire some went to the show some headed for border to be left alone looking out at the chaos with a crooked grin gotta pay off the pit boss in the state we’re in party is over we’re stuck on the couch I’d say it’s bullshit but I’m not allowed authority’s here and they’re kicking us out they’re kicking us out what the hell just happened did we burn it down can we still throw a party when there ain’t no house

Live In 03:16
Live In all we can do is live in what time we're given only so much to spend all we can do is live in what time we're given before you reach the end each day could be a go to the beach day eat the juiciest peach day whatever makes you smile some days can be go go go days but don't you think that it's ok when it's worth your while all we can do is live in what time we're given and no one really knows all we can do is live in what time we're given how much is left to go childhood not everybody had it so good if we could do it over some would how far would you go and who would you be you couldn't choose another family but all your friends and your surroundings are under your control all we can do is live in what time we're given go ahead and let them know all we can do is live in what time we're given how much you love them so violence getting tired of the mindless those who never had the guidance they are the most afraid there is evil around defenseless people now the gentle and the feeble can never find their way stunted at job you never wanted every now and then you're haunted makes you want to cry if you hadn't been grounded could've failed until you found it and then finally amounted to somebody you like we all die we hardly ever get to say bye become an angel in the big sky if you paid your dues wish I knew it was coming if there were some kind of warning we would do only what's important with the ones we choose all we can do is live in what time we're given not everyone survives all we can do is live in what time we're given go on you're still alive

Book Smart 03:39
Book Smart you say you've been left broken so you stick to what you know but you only know how to run away and I don't want to let you go why don't you get out of your head oh why don't you get into my bed why you get out of your head oh why don't you get it don't be so be so be so book smart get a read on my heart I was never really good at explaining but I know know what I need to know you think you see how the whole thing ends but I'm not gonna let you go

Go Time 03:00
Go Time I might be the luckiest dude the world has ever seen I've been sliding in, and making it by the skin of my teeth everybody thinks my days are numbered but all that said and done I'm still rockin it, I'm confident but the pressure is on don't nobody tell me what time it is cause I already know it's go time, go time go time, go time, go time, go hindsight's 20/20 son of a gun if I had only known I'd be crushing it, and cashing in rolling in the dough there's a lot of dirty work that I'm willing to do but it can't be all for naught I can't hesitate, I must be great if this is my last shot anything can happen you keep sticking it out yeah that's what I've been told but it's go time, go time go time, go time, go time, go

Keeping Bees 04:40
Keeping Bees I can I can I can feel them crawling on my skin this could mean a war is building and you have to cheat to win I can I can I can see your will is caving in this could mean a mercy killing but I’m bound to feel the sting the truth about keeping bees oh the flower is bound to find you the power flows back and forth through the unintentional crimes the truth about keeping bees oh you’re gonna get stung sometimes honey try not to get hung up on the unintentional crimes you can you can you can smell the coming days of spring when the apple turns vermillion you know it’s nothing but a fling but it tasted tasted tasted sweeter than it’s ever been this could be the one in a million with the tiniest of wings
6.
Doubt 03:51
Doubt we don't close the door why bother anymore I know that you love me we're just gettin lazy things get in the way days bleed into days the nights are when we're sleeping I guess that's when we need it don't go to sleep I don't want to lose ya but I'm feeling bruised up like we've blown a fuse all the lights have gone out everyone is a disaster let's see what's coming after I am gonna need the benefit of doubt felt you in the bed I must've have been misled dd you mean to touch me cause it made me happy
7.
It's You 03:28
t's You so you think you're done waiting for something that'll never come you think you're done trying cause trying never got it done so many ways for you to get there sooner and so many people you can depend on too but it's you so get out of that habit and get out of that stubborn mind if it happens for a reason there's a reason that you better find a fish out of water is luckiest one cause none of others get feel the warm sun it's you oh can't you see that it's you you say it's me but I know it's you making something out of nothing now it's tougher than it was before tell me how many times we gotta open and close this door all of the plans we used to talk about are the very things turning me inside out now look at us here between rock and a hard place you know there's nothing about me that ever really you're gonna change I'm sick as a dog of you accusing me we'll always be a puzzle with a missing piece please lover and a fighter, am I finding out they're one in the same are we holding out, freakin out, looking for somebody to blame we go to battle but we're doing alright cause we're both still standing here side by side
