Track Name: Scream Suburbia
We were blasphemers
We were self crowned kings of this town one time
Creeping out windows and slipping through doors
Breathe in our night
Do You remember the time we snuck up to the roof of the all night restaurant
You were the brightest star that night
And if I only knew then what I know now

We put this town on the map
Then we burned it to the ground
We built a monument
Then we watched it all fall down

You got out of town
I was anchored down headed nowhere in a hurry
The faces are similar, some of them gone
I'm not worried
About mistakes that I made, it's better you didn't stay
I get what's coming around and it's on its way
The star is burning out tonight
And I won't be there to catch you when you fall

These words are painted on the streets
They're the cracks in the sidewalks under your feet
Try as you might to claim you don't see
It won't change a thing
Track Name: What Am I Going To Do (With a Gun Rack)
There's been a mark up on all the merchandise
And there's a trainwreck behind your pretty eyes
And I can tell just by the way you look at me
It doesn't matter and we'll be fine

You destroy me with every second I spend waiting for acknowledgement
Your hand in mine is a ticking time bomb that's waiting to explode

Suck it up and let me down
This is the only chance we have to make it out
One way or another this building is coming down
And I'm not sticking around

We used to stand up so tall and proud against a crumbling horizon
Your hand in mine is a ticking time bomb that's waiting to explode

What Am I going to do with all these dreams of you
Track Name: Lowlife Highlights
With the sun at our backs
We'll head westward this morning
Guilty as sinners
We're rich men with nothing
All along
This is where we belong

Crooked lines are hard to follow
On such a straight and narrow path
The miles are paved with empty bottles
By those I know no better than
The kids just want to have a good time
They just want to live for tonight
So give them hell

This is our time, we'll shine
We cannot be divided

Nights like these are hard to come by
There's nowhere else I'd rather be
A dim lamp shines on you so brightly
That it isn't hard to see
This is where we belong tonight
We're the kings and queens of it all
This is where we belong tonight
And we will take it all

I'm hanging on your every word
I'll scream until my voice is hoarse
We're not going home
Because we're already home
Track Name: Almost
I spent the afternoon spinning 45s with you
I spin the hours away
I'll spin the days away
Act like you never met me as the city stares
Suffice it to say this is goodbye

I'm leaving on the last train out
I'm screaming suburbia
I'm coming home relunctantly
These quiet streets are what I need

How's this for sentiment
Sooner or later you'll regret
Keeping them all at arm's length
Pushing them all away
Act like you never met me as the city stares
Suffice it to say this is goodbye
Track Name: The Last Time
This isn't the first time
But God I hope it's the last time
You're a drug I wish I never took
I would take this love back if I could
As the ink dries on this letter
The room spins 33 more rounds
You never once changed for the better
As color fades out of this town

I can't breathe when you're sitting right beside me
And your heart beats worlds away
We ain't supposed to bleed for nothing
If we both believe in something
But you may never sing those same love songs again

This isn't the first time
But God I hope it's the last time
Every corner has a memory
Every regret is a part of me
As the ink dries on this letter
The room spins 33 more rounds
You never once changed for the better
As color fades out of this town

It's dimmer than the lights out on North Avenue
Baby can you find your way back home
Maybe then I'll see you dancing
But I'll keep my hopes down on the floor
