Track Name: Greener Pastures
Intro

I know I've done right here
Your words I'll never fear
Cause now I'm stronger now that you are gone

I hope you learn from this
It's over pure bliss
Believe me when I told you were wrong

Verse 1

Broken feelings in a briefcase
Raw emotions never know
As I glance across this hallway
Situations gonna blow

As I dream of autumn last year
I try to move on through the week
Battle scars inside an iPad
Inspirations what I seek


Chorus

I guess I'm waiting here
Blue skies will never clear
The stars are what I'm holding on tonight

One life you'll never know
One kiss you'll never go
Believe me when I told you I was right

Verse 2

Satisfied you'll never hurt me
Now you started up this war
You slept around with all of my friends
We all know you wanted more

As I sit down at this door step
Pondering what I've done wrong
Now I know I'm not at fault here
Why do I feel so un-strong

I guess I'm waiting here
Blue skies will never clear
The stars are what I'm holding on tonight

One life you'll never know
One kiss you'll never go
Believe me when I told you I was right

Bridge

Better than greener pastures
Two years just flew right past us
Dumb girls with alter-egos
To far to see a problem

The grass is always greener
Girls are always meaner
Sipping on a brew on the bathroom floor

Keep it on your heart sleeve
Never let your ex tease
Keep it going on

It's closing in
It's going down (x4)'

Chorus

I guess I'm waiting here
Blue skies will never clear
The stars are what I'm holding on tonight

One life you'll never know
One kiss you'll never go
Believe me when I told you I was right

Outro

I know I've done right here
Your words I'll never fear
Cause now I'm stronger now that you are gone

I hope you learn from this
It's over pure bliss
Believe me when I told you were wrong
Track Name: Lest We Regret
Verse 1

We're running on, we're running on
I'm coming on to see you
What's going on, what's going wrong
My heart is what you see through

I'm feeling wrong, you're feeling strong
This song's repeated stories
I'll lose my way, I'll lose my faith
My life won't mirror movies

Chorus

And this won't stay the same
I'll be okay
I'm trying, I know I'll forget you one day
Now that we're apart
A brand new start
I'm lying, I know I'll regret you one day

Verse 2
You're playing mean, you're playing hard
I'm trying not to see you
You're playing mean, you're playing shy
You don't know what I've been through

Chorus

And this won't stay the same
I'll be okay
I'm trying, I know I'll forget you one day
Now that we're apart
A brand new start
I'm lying, I know I'll regret you one day

Bridge

We're running on, we're running on
I'm coming on to see you
What's going on, what's going wrong
My heart is what you see through

Outro

Now that we're apart

I know I'll forget you one day
Track Name: Not Gonna Lie
Verse 1

Twice sworn, immaculate and sharp
Good call, it's time to call the day
They say that hope isn't the same
Despite what other people say

Black jack, all misery and lies
Cold luck, cause we're all sitting ducks
No need to turn this all around
Cause we're all out of luck

Chorus

You see
You know all's cool
You know all's sweet
Admit defeat

We won't plan, we won't try
We'll plan this, we'll prove this (I'm not gonna lie)

Our generation "A"
Will always seize the day

Verse 2

Hard luck, we can't convince the feds
Our elders say they know it all
They raised a demographic storm
We're now all told to take this fall

Who cares, were gonna save this world
Unite accept all walks of life'
No need to turn this all around
With guns or bullets or a knife
Track Name: Past Versus Present
Verse 1

She looks at me she seems to through
A feeling that I'd never know
I thought that this was but that was yesterday
The summer holds up so much hope
A little booze, a little dope
I thought that this was fun until I heard her say

"You know that this was never right
And I don't want to start a fight"
I guess it's all the same as seasons one to four

Chorus

Good luck is gonna shake now
Stand by and prepare for break down
No one can do this for me
Bad nights and malicious stories

And so I'll take a break now
I'll work hard to only play foul
But now I know that it's all gone

Verse 2

You never gave a second thought
You won't allow me to retort
My stomach's sick the butterflies a flying out

You know that I will never find
Another girl to share my mind
I guess it's all the same as sleeping on the floor
Track Name: Recondition
Verse 1

A flood of lies and hope our conscious claims to be
(You'll never know)
Through clouds of misty you're never gonna see
(You'll never show)
You know what's right unless it's in your heart
(You're only hope)
One's stupid fools gold fake triumphant from the start
Is to let go

Chorus

It's okay, lay your heads down
Hear no evil, speak no evil still we always see
It's okay, lay your arms down
Hear no evil, speak no evil still we always breathe

Verse 2

Recondition your superstition
We all bleed the same
Inebriate, your pure hate
Our vanities our shame

(You never know!)

You never know whats gonna start
You never know whats gonna go
You never know who's gonna fold
You never know who's gonna show
Track Name: Sunsets
Verse 1

It's happening, the day falls dark
But you won't try to escape my land
This night is bad, my lawns a mess
Your attitude stinks like a hundred grand

Carlton's on the wall, from here to Bourke Street mall
The train was late and we got a fine
But as the cops come back, we're always back on track
These desperate days, mark an old pass time

Chorus
I hold you in my arms
I hold you in my heart
You make me feel just right
On this lonesome night (x2)

Verse 2

I'll say this now, those days were fun
But what should we, all do now
With our lives, with this game
Inside we all feel the same

Winfield's my best friend, but he will cause my end
This complication, gets us all
But as the cops come back, we're always back on track
These desperate days, mark an old pass time
