Track Name: I'll Be Around
You ain't gotta be alone tonight, alone tonight
I can come on over make it right, make it right
No one in the sky is gonna mind, gonna mind it
Love is blind, it's time for a reminding

Once I caught a stream, held it in my palm
There, it ceased to be a word struck from a psalm
And so you hide you love away beneath a faith in misery
If shame is all that you can see, no I won't believe

You ain't gotta be alone tonight, alone tonight
I can come on over make it right, make it right, right
No one in the sky is gonna mind, gonna mind it
Love is blind, it's time for a reminding

Whether cross or crutch
Whether star or badge
All the lives we've lost under every flag
And so you hide your love away
beneath a faith in misery
If hate is all that you can see, no I won't believe
No, I don't believe

You ain't gotta be alone tonight, alone tonight
I can come on over make it right, make it right, right
No one in the sky is gonna mind, gonna mind it
Love is blind, it's time for a reminding
You ain't gotta be alone tonight, alone tonight
I can come on over make it right, make it right, right
No one in the sky is gonna mind, gonna mind it
Love is blind, it's time for a reminding

(I'll be around)
I'll be around (woo ooh) when you need me
(Just let it go)
Let it go (woo ooh) believe me
(I'll be around)
I'll be around (woo ooh) when you need me to (carry on, carry on) carry on

You ain't gotta be alone tonight, alone tonight
I can come on over make it right, make it right
No one in the sky is gonna mind, gonna mind it
Love is blind, it's time for a reminding
You ain't gotta be alone tonight, alone tonight
I can come on over make it right, make it right, right
No one in the sky is gonna mind, gonna mind it
Love is blind, it's time for a reminding
You ain't gotta be alone tonight, alone tonight
I can come on over make it right, make it right, right
No one in the sky is gonna mind, gonna mind it
Love is blind, it's time for a reminding

And so you hide your love away beneath a faith in misery
If pain is all that you can see, no I won't believe
Track Name: InstaMe
I'm too old to be hip
I'm too poor to be free
I'm to sweet to be sly and I'm feeling real shy
Can't let anyone see me

You need me so damn bad
you get it so damn easily
You got me in your hand
but you only love the InstaMe

That's the body I want
That's the living I need
That's the trip I'm gon' take with the friends I'm gonna make
after everyone sees me

You need me so damn bad
you get it so damn easily
You got me in your hand
but you only love the InstaMe
You need me so damn bad
you feel it so damn instantly
You got me in your hand
but you only love the InstaMe

You love to know what's in my story
I only show so you'll adore me
If you could crawl inside and through
InstaMe is InstaYou

You need me so damn bad
you get it so damn easily
You got me in your hand
but you only love the InstaMe
You need me so damn bad
you feel it so damn instantly
You got me in your hand
but you only love the InstaMe
Track Name: Let's Go
I hear you calling down to me
I won't be crawling now you see
You smashed it, stuffed it in your pocket
Now we gotta cut and crop it
If we ever wanna drop it

Whoa oh oh, get on the rope
Whoa oh oh

Let go
Let's go
I want it, you got it
Come on man, just drop it
Let go
Let's go
I gotta come get it
I'll be there in a minute

Not waiting for a pretty picture
not begging for symmetry either
there's a show tonight and we've been uninvited
got no loot despite our tryin' guess we better start a riot

Whoa oh oh, get on the rope
Whoa oh oh

Let go
Let's go
I want it, you got it
Come on man, just drop it
Let go
Let's go
I gotta come get it
I'll be there in a minute

We cannot lose, cannot lose, we cannot lose

You get fancy to wind up naked
It's not the deal but I guess you gotta take it
Worst case scenario, you move to Ontario
and drown yourself in a bath

Let go
Let's go
I want it, you got it
Come on man, just drop it
Let go
Let's go
I gotta come get it
I'll be there in a minute
Let go
Let's go
I want it, you got it
Come on man, just drop it
Let go
Let's go
I gotta come get it
I'll be there in a minute

Track Name: Better Believe It
(Woah woah-oh-oh,
Woah woah-oh-oh,
Woah woah-oh-oh oh-oh-oh oh-oh)

Didn't anybody wonder how long it'd take?
Didn't anybody wonder when chains would break?
Didn't anybody wonder who it'd be
When the hungry break the leash with a fool in the lead?

Under faith the truth will bow
You better believe it now
(Woah woah-oh-oh)
Better believe it now
(Woah woah-oh-oh)
Better believe it now
(Woah woah-oh-oh)
You better believe it
(Oh-oh-oh oh-oh)

You better believe it now
You better believe it now
You better believe it now
You better believe it, don't need a reason
You better believe it now

A billboard in the back
a freeway in the front
a noose in the mailbox
another in a month
a mad dog's place among the thieves
he'll play the ace from both sleeves

Under faith the truth has bowed
You better believe it now
(Woah woah-oh-oh)
Better believe it now
(Woah woah-oh-oh)
Better believe it now
(Woah woah-oh-oh)
You better believe it
(Oh-oh-oh oh-oh)

You better believe it, don't need a reason
Better believe it now
You better believe it now
You better believe it now
You better believe it now
You better believe it, don't need a reason
Better believe it now

Can you tell a lie in your grave?
Can you tell a lie in your grave?
Can you tell a lie in your grave?
Can you tell a lie in your grave?
Can you tell a lie in your grave?
Can you tell a lie in your grave?
Lie in your grave
Lie in your grave
Lie in your grave
Track Name: Dirt
It's gonna hurt, let it
It'd be worse to forget it
Don't worry tears won't wash away the pain
As sure as hell you'd do it again

If you need to sink
I'll be the stone
If you need to leave
I'll be the home
If you need to feel
I'll be the hurt
For when you push up flowers
I'll be the dirt
When you push up flowers
I'll be the dirt

Walking hand in hand for ages
Distance makes it's way in stages
Separation takes the hand of fate
Once they've taken sides it's far too late

If you need to sink
I'll be the stone
If you need to leave
I'll be the home
If you need to feel
I'll be the hurt
For when you push up flowers
I'll be the dirt
When you push up flowers
I'll be the dirt

If you need to sink
I'll be the stone
If you need to leave
I'll be the home
If you need to feel
I'll be the hurt
For when you push up flowers
I'll be the dirt
When you push up flowers
I'll be the dirt
Track Name: Neighbor
Neighbor
Neighbor
If you believe in me like I believe in you
We can get on
We can get on
I don’t mind
I don’t mind
You can see the view
what it means, you can define
And I don’t mind.
The way we make it
it’s got to be all or it’s none
the only way back, baby
believe we are one
We can get by…

Baby
Baby
If you believe in me like I believe in you
we can get on
If you believe in me like I believe in you
we can get on.
The way we make it
it’s got to be all or it’s none
the only way back, baby
believe we are one
We can get by
Track Name: Never Know Now
I always knew it wouldn't last
I can't believe, gone so fast
You know it's hopeless and hope no one will notice
No more than lack of empty space
Rivers that flow but don't replace
Flickin' lit matches, and turning bridges to ashes

It's time to tear it down again
Fire a parting shot and then
You try to keep from breaking down
'Cause you'll never know now
Never know now
Never know now

Hanging our hats on waterfalls
Like steel beams on cinder walls
Our analog heroes are now 1's and 0's
I'm falling short, falling fast
I never dream, I've broken that
Habits you beat out
Like a papercut bleed out

It's time to tear it down again
Fire a parting shot and then
You try to keep from breaking down
'Cause you'll never know now
Never know now
Never know now
It's time to tear it down again
Fire a parting shot and then
You try to keep from breaking down
'Cause you'll never know now
Never know now
Never know now

You stopped loving me
You stopped loving me
Before we ever broke
Before we ever broke ground
We were gonna be
We were gonna be
Ah, we'll never know
We'll never know now

It's time to tear it down again
Fire a parting shot and then
You try to keep from breaking down
'Cause you'll never know now
Never know now
Never know now
It's time to tear it down again
Fire a parting shot and then
You try to keep from breaking down
'Cause you'll never know now
Never know now
Never know now
It's time to tear it down again
Fire a parting shot and then
Try to keep from breaking down
'Cause you'll never know now
Never know now
Never know now
