Track Name: Last Wave
I'm on a suicide drive off the high dive
I know the fastest way, but I like the ride
I guess I lost my love for a certain lust
And now I'm sitting around just collecting dust
I've had the hardest time I've ever had
Trying to blow your mind and get ahead
I like to make excuses, but I just gave up
And this lament has lasted long enough

This is the last wave
This is the last wave
I'm on the last wave
This last wave

So here I stand and face the pain
It's been a long hard life, but not in vain
I thought I might have made the perfect mess
But have you met my best friend, loneliness?
I'd like to say I know it all
I've done it all
And now I've hit a wall
But the things you've seen you can't unsee
And what happens next is what was meant to be

This is the last wave
This is the last wave
I'm on the last wave
This last wave 
Track Name: What About Lonely?
I'll be here
Mostly cuz where would I go
Just so you know
That we could be alone
Kill ourselves at the sight of dawn
You're in space
Cuz other planets need saved
Come on give me a taste
And we can all escape
I'll help you when you need to explain

I'm only asking you because you know everything
All of the time you think we have
Do our dreams just get in the way
And what about lonely
Why do we get so lonely
Yeah lonely, why do we get so lonely
Until I don't even care

I need you close
Cut me before I explode
Or just leave me a note
It needn't be verbose
Just tell me that you like me the most
I'll disappear
If things between us get weird and fall asleep for a year
Or drink away the tears
Pilot to bombardier

I'm only asking you because you know everything
All of the time you think we have
Do our dreams just get in the way
And what about lonely
Why do we get so lonely
Yeah lonely, why do we get so lonely
Until I don't even care
Track Name: Something Forgettable
Do you you ever think of me?
The truth is that I think too much about you
I’m not sure what I feel is love
But before we met I wasn't feeling anything at all

This isn't something you would deem forgettable
And I’m not someone easily replaceable
If I could only show you something so remarkable
That you'd want me for me

You always said I talk too much
Maybe I never learned to say the right things
I think you used me as a crutch
To hold you up when you couldn't bear to see the light of day

This isn't something you would deem forgettable
And I’m not someone easily replaceable
Has this life become totally unbearable?
Let me show you something totally remarkable
That you'd love me for me
Track Name: I Once Was In Love
Do you see someone you can save
As we vanish in the haze
Was it easy to get me to talk
While my half life slows the clock

See I once was in love
And it wasn’t enough
I once was in love
What have I done

Do you have the time to kill
Perhaps dying’s more your thrill
Among the particles and waves
I’ll be drinking your mistakes

See I once was in love
And it wasn’t enough
I once was in love
What have I done
Track Name: New Design
I watched you fall out
I feel so happy
I'm pretending to cry
Like you don't notice
Like you don’t see
What's going on in my eyes

Advanced through beginners
Illusions done with mirrors
A complete new design
If you could lose your skin
Then we could be in business
We could be, all the time

It's not important
Come on and skip me
When you say your goodbyes
Cuz now I'm loaded
Now I'm someone getting on with his life

Advanced through beginners
Illusions done with mirrors
A complete new design
If you could lose your skin
Then we could be in business
We could be, all the time
Track Name: Dum Dum
Two smart kids doing dumb things
Destined for worse
We’re just two love birds
And we're never gonna shake this curse
Oh no

Long, hard years
And we're never gonna win this fight
We just kept on holding on hope
because we thought we might, honey

Tell me one time why you think I’ll just wait for you ‘til you’re gone
Tell me just once if you think there's a cure for blue, darling

Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum
Baby, I think we're

Two dead hearts
Grown apart
Never know when to quit
We’re just two hot heads
And we never learned to cool it

One last try
Just to see if we can be polite
We gave one last try
But it only lasted for one night
But what a night

Tell me one time why you think I’ll just wait for you ‘til you're gone
Tell me just once if you think there's a cure for blue, darling
Tell me one time why you think I’ll just wait for you ‘til you’re gone
Tell me out loud how we're ever gonna make this new
Once more, with feeling
Track Name: Slow Motion Forward
I’m running in slow motion forward
I’m heavy, but still on my feet
I’m tired, I’m sick, and I’m lonely
Come catch me
It won't take you long

I’m falling in slow motion forward
My status, my ego in tow
I’ve had time to think how I got here
It’s too late to change trajectory

Oh no

I’m flying in slow motion forward
I’m lofty, but steady as she goes
My shadow, it covers you completely
I see you
Don’t miss me
Don’t go

I’m diving in slow motion forward
I’m coming in straight for you, please
It seems like I’ve floated forever
I love you and hope that you know
Track Name: Far Beyond The Stars
Suicide wasn't always lame
But you got over yourself anyway
On a speedboat far away
Going cheap because you drink
It's gonna seem the same again
We'll pretend that we're still friends
But don't defend your past to them
How you're here because they missed

I felt a war had started
With less to care about
All the warmest hearts hid far beyond the stars

I'm always sorry
Always self obsessed
Making it up giving your best guess
I didn't think you'd come this far west
But that doesn't mean anything

I fall in love with all my mistakes
You like the versions that got nothing to say
So if it pleases your majesty, just leave me here to sleep

I felt a war had started
With less to care about
All the warmest hearts hid far beyond the stars
