Track Name: 76th & State
It seems as if you had to call again.
I almost had you out of my head.

Don't get me wrong.
I'm ecstatic at what you did over on 76th.
You took it back; you took me back.

It seems as if you came around; you came back down from him.
Call again.
Track Name: Fading
You're simply fading away.
You're losing interest in what we did every day from three to six in the basement at my place, the practice space.
I've accepted the fact that you're done and I'm sealing it off with this song and my tongue.
It was young fun, we were so young.

And now I know that I'm on my own on this one, for myself.
And I hope you know that I've been tripping up; picking out the best and worst of this all to prove myself that I'm not done.

Your shadow is still on the wall.
Your shadow is fading from the wall.
I'm catching glimpses of this past Fall when you left here.
It's hard to think that you were ever here at all.
You went away and let the rest to take the fall; and you say it wasn't your fault. (You lost it all; you lost yourself in her.)

I've accepted the fact that you're done and I'm sealing it off with this song and my tongue.
We were so young.
I've accepted the fact that you changed.
And I'm better off this way by myself.
Track Name: Life of a Coward
I'm so scared of what's been happening here and what's been goin' on in your head when you lie down in your bed.
You make the Winter get colder, my heart even bolder than any time before.
I'm gonna' do this for myself.
I'm gonna' get off my ass and do this for myself.

I can't look at you in your eyes anymore.
Stubbornness and selfishness have taken their toll on you.
I can't believe the things you do and the things you said to your friends, the band.
Was it worth it just to take her hand?

You think you got all the answers to everything, but you don't.
You think you know about me and all of my friends, but you don't.
The life of a coward.
You live the life of a coward.
It's all you'll ever be.
You take what you can and then you leave.
Was it worth it just to take her hand?
Tell me, old friend.
I guess we had nothin' else to expect from a boy like you with a piss-poor attitude and shady friends to back you.
Here's the end, old friend.
Track Name: Decades
You got me sittin' on the edge of my bed with this idea in my head that nothing's ever gonna' change.

I've got a bit of bad luck.
I got caught in between the memories that left the paper most clean from what we call our unfinished story.
I'm goin' back to where I started.
The old street still looks the same.
The only difference now is that I can't recall why I was the one to blame.
Don't you even mind.
I'll be just fine.

Now I'm stuck with the memories, the moments and times when I called you best friend and you were mine.
But with the slip of a tongue things all got so fucked up; now we're running in circles trying to fix what was done.

You got me sittin' on the edge of my bed with this idea in my head that nothing's ever gonna' change.
On the edge of my bed I got this feeling again that nothing's ever gonna' change.

I know.

You got me sitting on the edge of my bed again.
Nothing's ever gonna' change.
