Track Name: Boxes and Time
We've got the boxes, We've got the time,
We've got the boxes, We've got the time,
We can go anywhere we like,

We've got the car, We've got the miles,
We've got the car, We've got the miles,
We can drive anywhere we like,
We can drive anywhere
Track Name: To Get You
You heat my hands,
and you numb my lips,
race me to somewhere we don't know,
You take my legs,
and make my walk,
force me out to get you,
to get you back
Track Name: No Grey
What did you want to say to me?
What did you want to say to me?
You’ll take your time, you always do,
You’ll take your time, and take it slow,
Who were you talking to tonight?
Who were you talking to tonight?
Who were you talking to tonight?
Who were you talking to tonight?
When will you see yourself through me?
When will you come around again?
It’s black at night, and white at day,
It’s black and white, there is no grey,
It’s black at night, and white at day,
It’s black and white, there is no grey,
When will you see yourself through me?
When will you come around again?
It’s black and white, there is no grey
Track Name: Call
Where've you gone,
I want to say,
I miss you, I miss you,
Call to see,
if you're home,
no one's there, no one's there
Track Name: Blizzard Dreams
I think the blizzard's coming any day now,
and we're trapped inside my car,
I think the blizzard's coming any days now,
it'll miss us as we go,
We'll roll the windows down one last time,
I think the blizzard's coming any day now,
and we're trapped inside my car,
I think the blizzard's coming any day now,
it'll miss us as we go
Track Name: Insincere
Oh babe, you’re so polite,
Though I’m trying not to hear,
Please just break my heart,
So I can start to be insincere,
We’re so insincere,
We’re so insincere,
We’re so insincere,
God, we’re so insincere,
We’re so insincere,
We’re so insincere,
We’re so insincere,
Oh babe, you’re so controlled,
And you’re trying to forget,
Please just take me home,
So we can start being insincere,
We’re so insincere,
We’re so insincere,
God, we’re so insincere,
We’re so, we’re so, we’re so
Insincere,
We’re so insincere,
We’re so insincere,
We’re so insincere,
We’re so insincere

Track Name: Our Deterioration
Let's go somewhere we can see the stars,
I'm tired of the orange lights and the noise,
speed up our deterioration,
in some foreign place, in some foreign place instead,
It's tough creating something new you know,
It's hard to change so quick, so quick, you know,
It's time to rest and time to settle down,
It's time to rest and time to settle down
Track Name: The Things That You Held Dear
We’re in trouble,
We’re in trouble,
‘cause we’ve lost so many things,
We can’t replace,
We got tired,
And we got sick,
But we’re strong,
Baby, we’re strong,
You’ll take photos,
You’ll make memories,
‘cause you’ve lost so many things,
That you held dear,
We got scared,
And we got beaten,
But we’re strong,
Oh, we’re strong,
Baby, we’re strong,
Baby, we’re strong,
Baby, we’re strong,
Baby, we’re strong,
And it’s getting cold,
And it’s getting dark,
And it’s getting heavy,
And it’s getting cold,
And it’s getting dark,
And it’s getting heavy,
And it’s getting cold,
And it’s getting dark,
And it’s getting heavy,
But we’re strong
Track Name: Square One
We’re here at square one,
We’re here and it’s late,
What did you wake me for?
What did you wake me for?
Are you coming back?
I feel so old now,
I’m lying in bed all day,
My hands are shaking,
My voice is lost,
Are you coming back?
This song won’t bring you around,
This song won’t make it last,
This song won’t change our lives,
This song won’t change our lives,
It won’t change our lives,
It won’t change our lives,
This song won’t bring you around,
This song won’t make it last,
This song won’t change our lives,
This song won’t change our lives,
This song won’t change our lives,
This song won’t change our lives,
It won’t change our lives,
It won’t change our lives,
It won’t change our lives

Track Name: This Foreign Land
I’m scanning for exits,
And you’re holding my hand,
But our patience is rusting,
In this foreign land,
And we’ll stay up for hours,
To see this thing through,
But we’ll never be old enough,
To see how we grew,
We’ll find strength we’ve never had,
And we’ll take charge of our own plans,
And we’ll fight fire with fire,
‘til we can feel the warmth of our own hands,
I’m scanning for exits,
And you’re taking your time,
But we’re looking for answers,
We know we can’t find,
And we’ll stay up for hours,
To see this thing through,
But try as we might,
It’ll never come true,
We’ll find strength we’ve never had,
And we’ll take charge of our own plans,
And we’ll fight fire with fire,
‘til we can feel the warmth of our two hands,
We’ll find strength we’ve never had,
And we’ll take charge of our own plans,
And we’ll fight fire with fire,
‘til we can feel the warmth of our own hands
Track Name: You've Been Long Gone, for Such a Long, Long Time
Here at my house,
The ghosts climb the stairs,
And you’ve been long gone,
For such a long, long, time
For such a long, long time
The night’s wearing thin,
And sleep won’t come at all
And you’ve been long gone,
For such a long, long time,
For such a long, long time,
And you’ve been long gone,
For such a long, long time
Track Name: Who Will Carry On Without Us There?
Who will carry on,
Without us there?

Track Name: The End
I don’t want to lose you,
I don’t want to leave,
I don’t want to take it slow,
I don’t want to leave,
You can take control,
You can focus,
You will stay alive,
You can take control,
You can focus,
You will stay alive,
You will stay alive,
You will stay alive,
This isn’t over,
This is not the end,
This isn’t over,
This isn’t over,
This is not the end
Track Name: We Love It Here
We’ll drive our cars,
In circles to each other,
Living apart isn’t living, babe,
Not anymore,
It used to be easy,
God, it used to be easy,
When did we turn into strangers?
When did we lose sight?
Let’s find that creative ambition,
Let’s take it as far as it’ll go,
Bottles and cans are littering the room,
And it’s too cold to go outside,
And it’s too cold to go outside,
And it’s too cold to go outside,
And it’s too cold to go outside,
And it’s too cold to go outside,
Why should we move?
We love it here,
Why should we move?
We love it here,
We love it here,
We love it here,
We love it here,
We love it here
Track Name: 'Til Morning
There’s thunder in your eyes,
So you close them up tight,
You drop your anchors,
And sleep ‘til the morning,
Sleep ‘til the morning,
Sleep ‘til the morning,
There’s anger on your hands,
So you tighten your fists,
You hold it all in,
Hold it all in,
And cry ‘til the morning,
Cry ‘til the morning,
Cry ‘til the morning,
I’d take the city to you,
If you’d let me do it,
If you’d let me do it,
If you’d let me do it,
I’d marry you right here,
My love’s gonna last,
My love’s gonna be there,
My love’s gonna stay all night,
My love’s gonna make it ‘til morning,
My love’s gonna last,
My love’s gonna be there,
My love’s gonna stay all night,
My love’s gonna make it ‘til morning,
We’re gonna make it ‘til morning,
We’re gonna make it ‘til morning,
We’re gonna make it ‘til morning,
At least,
At least,
At least
