Track Name: Fight Or Flight
I lie alone while the city’s sleeping
Eyes wide open and a mind that feeds me
All the reasons why I’m still awake
And how tomorrow is just one more day

Turn up the music and stare at the ceiling
But nothing kills that sinking feeling
That my best plan is just to keep drinking
Because hope is just wishful thinking


The wettest July since the 1950s
I think the sky’s trying to tell me something
I’m better off inside.

If I don’t see my friends, I won’t see my enemies
With defeatism and negativity
You fuckers sap all of my energy

Learning to choose between fight or flight
Sick of these walls so I won’t stay home tonight
It’s time for a change and some honesty


And while I wait, there’s just no chance I’ll ever sleep at night
So I can’t wait until it’s over


The way I’ve been living the past few years
It won’t be a shame if I never see myself again


The wettest July since the 1950s
I think the sky’s trying to tell me something
I’m better off inside

I’ve already spent far too long waiting for my time
So I won’t run and hide


And while I wait, there’s just no chance I’ll ever sleep at night
So I can’t wait until it’s over


I lie alone while the city is sleeping
Eyes wide open and a mind that feeds me
All the reasons why I’m still awake
And how tomorrow is just one more...

Turn up the music, stare at the ceiling
But nothing kills that sinking feeling
That my best plan is just to keep drinking
Because hope is just wishful thinking

WOAH-OH
Track Name: Geocache Girl
When I searched alone
Every find would go unfound
Yeah I’d stare blankly at every clue

But as a pair
Yeah with company, we’ll cover wider ground
So I’ll adventure along with you


Please tell me what I’ve been searching for
Please give me a reason not to go home and find out

There’s no better company
For searching high and low
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your latitude tonight

We’ll call on the satellites
Find treasure in the snow
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your longitude delighted
That amongst all these bounties that are scattered around
Yours was the one I found


I’ll head out on my own
To a spot concealed and sound
I’ll hide a package just out of view

Take a look by the willow tree
With ivy all around
Yeah there’s a prize waiting there for you


Please tell me what I’ve been searching for
Please give me a reason not to go home and find out


There’s no better company
For searching high and low
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your latitude tonight

We’ll call on the satellites
Find treasure in the snow
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your longitude delighted
That amongst all these bounties that are scattered around
Yours was the one I found


You’ve got an eye for a familiar face
But here I am still searching for someone with a likeness to you


There’s no better company
For searching high and low
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your latitude tonight

We’ll call on the satellites
Find treasure in the snow
Oh Geocache Girl
I’m at your longitude delighted


That there’s no better company I know
I’m at your latitude tonight


You’ve got an eye for a familiar face
But here I am still searching for someone with a likeness to you

And amongst all these bounties that are scattered around
Yours was the one I found
Track Name: Hopeless, But Devoted
And so you say I’ve been away
But I’ve been thinking of ways to stay
’Cause see, this town, it leaves me broken
Hopeless, but devoted

And so I stand on city corners
As days grow long and nights grow colder
Armed with a heavy heart and knocked by cold shoulders
I feel I am...


Ankle deep in the middle of the water
The icy cold takes away my breath
And leaves me gasping; choked for air
And knowing I’m out of my depth

Ankle deep in the middle of the water
The creeping cold makes its way to my chest
That hollow space that never seems to function
Except to pump the blood to my face
In times of crisis and opportunity


And when even my body is putting up boundaries
How can I expect to be free?

So you say I’ve been away
But I’ve been thinking of ways to stay
’Cause see, this town, it leaves me broken
Hopeless, but devoted


Ankle deep in the middle of the water
The creeping cold makes its way to my chest
That hollow space that never seems to function
Except to pump the blood to my face


And I feel the heat, and it burns my skin
And I feel the water, and I let it in


And when even my body is putting up boundaries
How can I expect to be free?

So you say I’ve been away
But I’ve been thinking of ways to stay
’Cause see, this town, it leaves me broken
Hopeless, but devoted


This town that I loved so well
Has turned its back on me, I can tell
And when the silence sinks, I hope you think of me
And everything that we could’ve been

This town that I loved so well
Has turned its back on me, I can tell


And if I leave this town
It won’t remember me
And if I leave this town
I know I’ll take it with me


So you say I’ve been away
But I’ve been thinking of ways to stay
’Cause see, this town, it leaves me broken
Hopeless, but devoted
Track Name: Might As Well Be Dead
There is something that I’ve needed to say…


There is something that I’ve needed to say to you
And I just can’t wait any longer, no
You say you’ve nothing to believe in
Well please just stop complaining

I was so sick of routine
Revisiting places I’ve been before
Well today is a day like any other


I thought "Is this is for me?
"Still stuck at seventeen
"Will I ever get back all the days in between?"


You parked your mind in a feeling
And never tried to get free
Your head and heart stopped working
But that won’t be me


Make a change
Try and see beyond all of your yesterdays
’Cause you’re tired of the feeling
And time isn’t healing
And you’ve only got yourself to blame


There’s something that I’ve needed to say
And I just can’t wait any longer, no
You can fuck all of your friends
But it’s yourself you should be blaming

I was so sick of routine
Revisiting places I’ve been before
I really want to believe
Tomorrow’s not just another day

When I wake up and think it’s over
And hide my head under the covers
And open my eyes and let the light in for the first time
And I’ll say...

I won’t let go or let, or let myself fall behind.
I won’t listen to your words or let them prey on my mind.

Negative outcomes stem from negative thoughts
And I will not let you break me down
