Track Name: Hell & Back
I've got burns on my feet, went to hell and back just to,
Feel the heat, yeah, I needed that vacation
Misguided interpretations,
You know I got a devil hanging on my shoulder,
and an angel on the other

They say, it takes twenty-one days,
To break a habit
But it's been three weeks,
And I'm still not over it

When you see me falling down,
You better not crumble
Oh, you've gotta keep your head up,
And wake up,
No more living in denial

I'm at a place, I can't erase your hands,
I've got nothing left to lose,
But I still tighten grip
The water fills my veins to the lowest point,
Where you can find me lately.

Until,
I come up for air

In an executive decision from the top to the bottom,
Would you really call this trust?
I've gone every day,
Every spring,
Every autumn,
I think I've had enough

I'm at a place, I can't erase your hands,
I've got nothing left to lose,
But I still tighten grip
The water fills my veins to the lowest point,
Where you can find me lately.

Until,
I come up for air

I've got burns on my feet, went to hell and back just to,
Feel the heat, yeah, I needed that vacation
Misguided interpretations,
You know I got a devil hanging on my shoulder,
and an angel on the other
Track Name: By The Fire
(Adam)
I was born in the night,
With an Indian headdress burning bright in the sky
The ground, on which I stood so tall,
She's always been so quick to break my hard earned fall

And it seems I've been lost out at sea
I'm so deep, so many leagues
And while I'm down, I'm sure I'll learn
Then I'll rise up and tell you what I've seen

(Ethan)
I was dead by the morning,
But alive enough to see the reflection in your eyes,
I drive down this lonely road,
With only a carved map telling me where to go

And it seems I've been lost out at sea
I'm so deep, so many leagues
And while I'm down, I'm sure I'll learn
Then I'll rise up and tell you what I've seen

(Tom)
All these scars of mine are symbolic of
Every wrong path I chose
They cease to exist,
Leaving only a new and more level-headed me

And it seems I've been lost out at sea
I'm so deep, so many leagues
And while I'm down, I'm sure I'll learn
Then I'll rise up and tell you what I've seen
Track Name: Open Tab
What's your claim?
I don't even know your last name
But, I'm trying to
'Cause your eyes are so damn blue
I'm six beers deep and I stumble my way
Over to you

You're like a midnight thief (You're like a midnight thief)
You want to flee the scene (Want to flee the scene)
Without giving me
An opportunity, yeah

Oh, you told me not to hesitate,
Told me to step up to the plate
We define the memories,
Turning grays into blues and greens

(Adam)
With the gaze that blinds me from thought,
I thought it would be good to talk the talk
So I could learn your name
Another word for beautiful

I know how small the room gets when it hits,
Because we're both not here for this
And I'll learn to walk before I run,
A steady pace for a pretty face

(Ethan)
What's your claim?
I don't even know your last name
But, I'm trying to
Track Name: Upstream
(Adam)
And I've been swimming upstream,
Another heart attack,
A cardiac,
A heart-felt getaway

And if my hand warm up
From the fire in your eyes
I will never compromise
All I left behind

The piece of me that quit,
A heart so bold, but thick,
A weathered path, too lost to follow it

But maybe I'll catch you on the fallback,
A trust fall to get those years back,
And the words we speak,
In the knees, I'm weak,
At the broken promise

(Ethan)
And we buried the body of water that I failed to float in,
The story that was written on the shelf closed by bookends,
The bridge that broke halfway was just my demolition,
Reflections reflect backwards,
Like how my life's been

(All)
Cause I've been swimming upstream (I can promise),
Another heart attack (I'm only human),
A cardiac (I can promise),
A heart-felt getaway (I'm only human)
And I've been swimming upstream (I can promise),
Another heart attack (I'm only human),
A cardiac (I can promise),
A heart-felt getaway (I'm only human)

(Tom)
I can promise I'm only human
I can promise I'm only human
