Track Name: Undaunted
We're here from far and wide
Let us play your heartstrings one last time
This is one for all those sad songs that didn't make it on the b-sides
And all these heart-filled cries for help of mine
Break my heart so I can write a few more lines about the missing parts of me and us
And what we used to be because
We'll take the fall again
We're undaunted
We'll take those feelings you had inside and bring them out to play one last time
Track Name: For Your Girl, The Boulder
Breathe in this mess you made
Take in the smoke and flames

If I walked away, I'd make the same mistakes
And I'll try not to take the fall for you

You made me cold

The barrier is broken, it took your backbone down with it
But don't scream too loud
You rip your reasons down

For your girl, the boulder
Steal my oxygen, smolder
Take every bridge I ever built and burn it to the ground

I know what you do when I'm not around
Word travelled and made its rounds
Ring out your heart

Know when to draw the line
I've seen this too many times
Staring at the ceiling, thank God you're leaving

Ring out your heart
Track Name: Swing For The Fences
I'm young and my story has just begun
I know I'm not the only one
Who'd love to see you stick around tonight
We might not live to see the day
Of the next time you walk away
So let's blow this roof off properly

I guess this is the part where they tell us we'll never make it
We'll take their ego and we'll break it

Just for tonight, swing for the fences
My trembling hands won't call the shots tonight
Let's set this right, swing for the fences
You know we'll all end up in higher places

Tonight we'll take this city by storm
And no we won't apologize
Maybe we're both lying but we're both damn good
Yeah, we're both damn good

I guess this is the part where they tell us we'll never make it
We'll take their ego and we'll break it

Just for tonight, swing for the fences
My trembling hands won't call the shots tonight
Let's set this right, swing for the fences
You know we'll all end up in higher places
Track Name: Your Heart, My Lungs
I awoke head spinning because your pictures were falling down
I felt the air start thinning, sometimes I can't breathe with you around
Make no mistake, my darling, it's time you should pack up and go
Lately there's no denying that you're a one-way dead end road
I think that it's time you should go

You say I drink too much but I'm not changing who I am
I say you judge too hard but I don't think you give a damn
I felt my heart turn black at that moment I gave you a smile
You traded your heart for my lungs the second you put mine on trial
I hope that you're fucked for a while

I've been thinking about how you've only ever been there to watch me fall
And I'm sick of it all
You've got me on the outside looking in on this life and love we lived
I've got you feeling like a wreck now baby, yeah
Like a fucking wreck now baby, yeah
Track Name: Join The Gang
May I interest you to get up and jump in?
Let's wipe the floor with the words trapped in our minds
This crowd has a history and you ought to know better than to ask us why
We're the prettiest gang in town and you know boy
It's time for you to fight for what we see as right
So take up arms and we'll see you on the other side

We'll take the best of the worst tonight
'Cause they take so much less to leave behind

Are you ready now, go
This might hurt a bit but you won't feel a thing
Until he's the one that's suffering
And if you live to tell the truth, I'm warning you
You're as good as in
Reach out and join the gang

It starts with a war cry and we're into it
You can stand your ground, but don't get clipped
Or you'll find yourself in a blackening world tonight

Trapped with this world of metaphor strapped before our eyes
Where everyone's a gentleman and gentlemen all alike
Track Name: Oakland (Dancing With The Queen)
I hope this sets you straight
I hope tonight will set you straight
He fucking got away
He took her and he got away
She has a bad reputation, critical condition
Devil on my shoulder

A year full of bad notes and antidotes and bloody knuckles
She's still my cancer (She's still cancer)
She's a defeater
I don't need her

She's got her guy in the next room and I'm writing this story
I guess it's just too damn bad I can't wipe my heart off of my sleeve

I'll pick up the pieces and tread lightly
Oakland is calling and it's time for me
I'll never let this go
An old flame that burned things to the ground
He came around and now he's dancing with the queen

I hope this sets me straight
I hope this bottle sets me straight
He fucking got away
He took her and he got away

Now my throat is raw
I have nothing left to scream
Your mid-boredom "miss him's" don't mean a fucking thing

Let me show you what it's like to fall through as I come crashing down
See you around
Let me leave this place tonight
I hate this
I'm second guessing you
I'm leaving you

And I'll grow
Track Name: Rehab
I'm feeling trapped in this b-side life
Staring up at a million ways to die
You could have left the room in silence
Or even had the nerve to try
Can't afford to go back that way
There's just temptation on my mind
And in this chest, there's a hole that's left
When you tear this heart out every fucking time

I could have sworn it was light
The last time that I stepped foot outside
You could have fooled me once
And told me that the earth stopped spinning
Right before my eyes
I've let you down, but here and now
The worst has got the best of me

I know you'll never live this down
You would never come back around
And I know you'll never live this down
But who was I to prove?
'Cause I was doing fine until you walked into my life

And in the dead of the night
I find that I will hear you calling
It makes it feel like a getaway
I've let you down, but here and now
The worst has got the best of me

I know you'll never live this down
You would never come back around
And I know you'll never live this down
But who was I to prove?
'Cause I was doing fine

Trapped in this b-side life
With a million ways to die
I think I see the light
Good night
