Track Name: Punk Rock Shuffle
... and when it goes, it goes down hard
we come in fast and go home scarred
we're all we have
and when we laugh it's always loud enough

to here and hell and back again
we go through this because we can
I wish I had an answer that was good enough for them
but we don't have forever anymore
as if we ever did before
i'm going fast, i'm going loud
i'm gonna make these people proud

this is where the free ride ends
this is where we make amends
and when we get back together
we'll be stronger in the end

the stories don't do justice
but they're everything we've got
i've heard them all a thousand time
i know that they are not just an excuse
to make up heroes
or see greatness in my past
i get no validation from relationships in glass

and there's no resolution just a promise to go on
to realize what we've still got
and never give that up

this is where the free ride ends
this is where we make amends
and when we get back together
we'll be stronger in the end

well this is where we take our place
this is where we see things change
this is everything i've got against
the worst i've ever faced

and with everything that you've been told
it's hard not to feel a little cold
Track Name: Brian's Dog
it wasn't all that long ago that i
used to count the days 'till I was old enough to try

the odds were never good but now they're terrible
i never took the time to wonder why

but i don't mind
i don't care about that anymore
and i feel fine
i'll always have the ride back from the store

i used to ask this all the time
"what are we supposed to do when you get out of line?"
but now i know the question's wrong
there's no if there's just a when and maybe a how long

the odds were never good but now they're terrible
i never took the time to wonder why
but if you fight through the unbearable
you'll finally see where all that meaning lies

but i don't mind
i don't care about that anymore
and i feel fine
i'll always have the ride back from the store

maybe this is where we end up
i guess it's not so bad
maybe this is where I stand up
the best i ever have
Track Name: Style Points
it's been three years and i think i'm fine
but every now and then i think about the only time
i was lost and something hurt so bad
taking what we thought we had away
but i still don't know quite what to say

and so we get a little older
i wish i wasn't far away
and now we're all a little closer
yeah we're dealing with a brand new day

and all the promises i made
to always honor, never break
i wish you saw what i can see
i wish you had a chance to be

i'm way too sentimental
yeah ordinary-like
i hope you'd understand
i'd like to think you might

wake up early, grab my hand
and show me what you think
make a mess, apologize, and ask me for a drink

and so we get a little older
i wish i wasn't far away
and now we're all a little closer
we're dealing with a brand new day

all the promises i made
to always honor, never break
i wish you saw what i can see
i wish you had a chance to be

and should these distractions win one day
i won't just let you slip away
that's my promise, that's my style
i guess i'll see you in a while

and when i get away from times like these
and everything they bring
it's easier inside the place i love
where i don't have to think about the way
it could have been for you and her and them
and please don't interrupt
because i haven't finished yet
but i guess i never ever will
Track Name: Reunion
remember when the fallout was someone else's problem
(and we're all out of thumbs to break)
one step ahead of trouble, two steps inside the bubble
(gets hard to stay awake)
everything we knew just went up and changed
(and it's all we can talk about)
all the time i thought you'd just stay the same
(but i was wrong, i'm always wrong about you)

and there it is, the devil i was bracing for
we know it all too well
but wait, there's more, you are all alone this time
and i tried, but i'm gone

remember when you promised we'd never get caught
(you were right, it always pissed me off)
always taking chances, never getting lost
(the wrong things always bothered you)
just when things make sense they blow up again
(you show up and don't complain)
all this time i never thought you'd need a friend
(but I was wrong, I'm always wrong about you)

and there it is, the devil i was bracing for
we know it all too well
but wait, there's more, you are all alone this time
and i tried, but i'm gone

well this is even worse
because we're all on our own
and this might be a first
but you're the one alone
what are we supposed to do with someone like you?
Track Name: Taiwanese Tattoo
well there's a place across the bay
where you can find me
looking for someone to show me where to find the bathroom

and if you do decide to stay
well i recommend the place that makes you pancakes
because everything's in english

and you can't quite get a feel
for whether anything is real
but if you wave your arms around enough
someone will show you how to get back home

well there's a place to make a name
where no one's heard it
can't hide what you are inside
but it never hurts to try

and in the space among the ones
who found a home
soak up the stares of those who just wish you'd
leave them alone

i'm waiting
for someone to show me
what's so great about a different game
in the middle of somebody's party
the world is different, but you're still the same

well there's a place you have to try
it's so amazing
built for us but we're too dumb to know
and that's the whole idea

and if your life feels like a lie
it'll pass and you can ask that
girl to be your family

because friends and neighbors change
but your identity's the same
and if you wave your arms around enough
someone will show you how to get back home
Track Name: Pedal Faster
no more excuses this is it i'm getting started for the last time
(this time) i will not get lost
among the places that were promises of something that I don't want
(can't have) this time you'll be wrong

let's start strong
then take it all

when the excitement fades
will we still remain
(let's find out)
what if you never get another chance
how can you sleep like that?
urgency means everything right now

yeah once upon a time i wasn't really thinking and it cost me (lost me) no more getting burned
by situations that can't match the expectations of a life-long (dead wrong) need to have control

when the excitement fades
will we still remain
(let's find out)
what if you never get another chance
how can you sleep like that?
urgency means everything right now

well you could line up all the people
who never hit their mark
put them on a pedestal
and leave them in the dark

... but i never liked the dark
