Track Name: Here Goes
Catch your breath. You said the wound’s too fresh and you can’t put it to rest.
Jumped out of your skin when you recognized what you had left
Call it off, can’t hold together, everything that I expressed
Got written down over time out of habit and obsess.

Can someone tell me how all this works,
If my good fortune gets reversed?

Can’t drag it out forever
I resign now to be left unknown
Enjoy the new whatever that comes your way
It felt at least the crutch I’m leaning on was never wrong

Catching up to when the edges break and the bottom falls out
Dumped out the nervous shaking at the fear of your own doubts
Going through the motions for the rest of my life to stay warm
Tie me down to old habits. It’s too late to get reformed

Can someone tell me how all this works?
After more time it just gets worse.

Can’t drag it out forever,
I resign now to be left unknown.
Enjoy the new whatever that comes your way.
It felt, at least, the crutch I’m leaning on was never wrong

And if it’s over,
Let it be over.

Can’t drag it out forever,
I resign now to be left unknown.
Enjoy the new whatever that comes your way.
It felt, at least, the crutch I’m leaning on was never wrong
Track Name: Madison
Is it alright
To feel betrayed
By the summer?

I finally let go,
Forgot the words I used to wear
Like a crown up on my ears.
Heavy, lost and found.

I tried to listen close
And finally grow up,
Swore off the songs I once believed in
Like the gospels I was given.
Heavy, lost and found
until the day we run aground.

But I'll take the stage 'til I burn out like a star.
Don't know where the hell I've been.
Don't know who you are.
But when it all went sideways and life got in the way,
We'll have Madison
And in Madison, I think we did O.K.

Do you know what's strange?
I finally found closure.
I found a comfort in the silence
Like a sun on the horizon.
Heavy, lost and found.

But I'll take the stage 'til I burn out like a star.
Don't know where the hell I've been.
Don't know who you are.
But when it all went sideways and life got in the way,
We'll have Madison,
in Madison...

It doesn't make much sense to me.
All the hours in the days spent, spent wondering.
It doesn't make much sense to me.
There's a method to the madness and it's killing me.

I never played my guitar in Gainesville, Florida.
Wrote a song about California but I never got that far.
And yeah, it all went sideways and life got in the way
But in Madison...

I'll take the stage 'til I burn out like a star.
I don't know where the hell I've been.
I don't know who you are.
But when it all went sideways and life got in the way,
We'll have Madison,
in Madison, I think we did O.K.
Track Name: Less I Knew
Put me in between two brick walls in the cold,
‘Cause every time I’m back in town there’s something new I don’t recognize.

There’s no script to recite, no banter to memorize.
Don’t turn your head as I walk by.

Alone out in the open, trying not to catch your eye.
King of small talk runs his mouth,
Chats you up before you’re off into the night.

From the balcony, I bet everything comes in clear now.
I still look over my shoulder if you’re hanging around.
Honestly, I’d just be happier with the less that I knew.
I still look over my shoulder for you.

From the balcony, I bet everything comes in clear now.
I still look over my shoulder if you’re hanging around.
Honestly, I’d just be happier with the less that I knew.
I still look over my shoulder for you.
Track Name: Wreckage
Stay up late.
Check the damage in the morning.
Even with all kinds of warning,
I cannot wrap my head around
What we create
With the devil that lies in wait.

What else could you turn into?
What else could you turn into?

Can’t turn away.
Never a chance to say you’re sorry
While you’re in a field of gray,
I cannot wrap my mind around
How we’re all safe
If we choose to celebrate.

Single-minded, full percentage,
Ankle deep in all the wreckage,
All that’s done in good intentions now

Couldn’t help but take advantage,
Pack up all your things and vanish.
Split before they put the bandage on.

What else could you turn into?
What else could you turn into?
What else could you turn into?
What else could you turn into?
