Track Name: February 5th
When I heard the news
The room was spinning around
I floated down the hallway
My feet didn't touch the ground
I tried to think of something to say
But words would not come out
I'm desperate for some rain
But all I see is drought

And now my heart
Is overflowing
With disappointment and fear
The future is so
uncertain
And I just wish you were here

Bye bye baby bye bye
Bye bye baby bye
Bye bye baby bye bye
Bye bye baby bye

When I heard the news
My mind was floating out in space
I wanted to be alone
The news was written on my face
On the drive home
The minutes turned to hours
And now that you're gone
It's taking all of my power

And now my heart
Is overflowing
With disappointment and fear
The future is so
uncertain
And I just wish you were here

Bye bye baby bye bye
Bye bye baby bye
Bye bye baby bye bye
Bye bye baby bye

It's so weird
When one day you're happy
And the next day there's a hole
A place in your heart
Where a person used to be
An idea, a future, a goal
Every day, it gets easier to deal
While I retreat to music cause it's how I heal
Life is so much harder
Than I ever could have dreamed
When I was young
When I was a kid

Bye bye baby bye bye
Bye bye baby bye
Bye bye baby bye bye
Bye bye baby bye
Track Name: Next Summer
This year
Has been a waste
I don't know if I can get the taste
Out of
My mouth
I need a new year just to wash it out

This summer
Is almost in the past
Next summer
Will be better than the last
Next summer
The sun will shine on my teeth
But for now
I'll have to wait and see

If something
good comes
It's too late to save me from the doldrums, Of this
Nightmare
Sunny season
I'll be happy if I break even

This summer
Is almost in the past
Next summer
We'll by lying in the grass
Next summer
We'll sing and we'll dance
But for now
I don't stand a chance
Track Name: Sun Block
You grew so big
You started blocking out the sun
And no matter where I go
No matter where I run

You will stomp on
Any dream that I hold dear
I'll never learn to grow
As long as you are near

As I adjust to the darkness
My skin begins to glow
An involuntary
bioluminescent show

My skin begins to glow
My skin begins to glow
Track Name: Sneakernet
I don't trust
the government
To handle all of
my dark secrets
I keep them hidden
undercover
And there's no way
they'll discover

All of these files
in my hand
are encrypted
Contraband
All of this data
in my hand
Get off the grid
and take a stand

I use the sneakernet
I use the sneakernet
To hide my secrets
I use the sneakernet
I use the sneakernet
I use the sneakernet
Don't trust the government
I use the sneakernet

Watch like a hawk
To detect
All those things
That haven't happened yet
And that's why
I use the sneakernet
To hide the files
They will never get

All of these files
in my hand
Are encrypted
Contraband
All of this data
in my hand
Won't be found
If I am scanned

I use the sneakernet
I use the sneakernet
To hide my secrets
I use the sneakernet
I use the sneakernet
I use the sneakernet
Don't trust the government
I use the sneakernet
Track Name: Let's Go
Verse 1]
There's no new thing
Underneath the sun
Sometimes you have to fight
Sometimes you gotta run

[Chorus]
The world will put you down
Let's Go, Let's Go
But I'll always be around
Let's go, Let's Go
There's so much left to do
And so many people left to meet
Too much left to learn
No time to take it slow
So let's go

[Verse 2]
You'll get stronger
Travelling against the wind
Sometimes you'll lose
Sometimes you'll win

[Chorus]
The world will put you down
Let's Go, Let's Go
But I'll always be around
Let's go, Let's Go
There's so much left to do
And so many people left to meet
Too much left to learn
No time to take it slow
So let's go
Track Name: Coming Back
Hanging out
In the driveway
of your parents' house
Joking and laughing
Getting older
Kind of sucks
And I don't want to grow up

In my bed
3AM
My mind is full of
Regrets and fears
I will focus
On the past
Until it's time to wake up

We are so much older
Those years are never coming back
Forever chasing the feeling
But it's never coming back

Here I am
In my house
Got the TV
At full blast
I will waste time
Going nowhere
until I take my last breath

Here we are
Ten years later
On the drive home
From our jobs
Got no money
Every year is
One step closer to death

We are so much older
Those years are never coming back
Forever chasing the feeling
But it's never coming back
