Track Name: Long Distance
It's like a badge of honor when you say you don't like me at all.
It's simple and it's obvious we don't want you around anymore.
Stay on your side of the fence
So we never have to interact or see each other's faces again.

Now we walk this town,
Hood's up and our hopes down.
You've never felt right where you are,
And that's not even the worst part.
You'll never get out.

This may come as a surprise, but it's what I have to do.
No one knew that you still had some fight left in you.

You'll be sitting all alone in a bar we've never heard of
As the lights ignite over your head on Fremont.
You'll spark fires on the bridge you're crossing
And watch as shadows come to greet you.
You can't bring yourself to go back home
'Cause there's no one there to wait around for you anymore.
It's a place you'll never get back to.

This may come as a surprise, but it's what I have to do.
No one knew that you still had some fight left in you.
I swear to God that I'll be okay without you.
No one knew that you still had some fight left in you.
Track Name: Keyholes
I'm a portrait on your wall
A stinging realization of
All the things I'll never change and
How I never wanted you
To take me down and label me
And throw me in a closet so
You'll never see
(You'll never hear me sing)

And I'll still sing
Into these walls
Hoping that these lyrics find you
Looking through keyholes

And I'll still sing
Through these walls
Hoping that these lyrics find you
Looking through keyholes

Another freezing night inside this bar
Never got me very far
Like I'm running from the truth
Like I always do
Now I'm digging through this room
Desperately searching to find you
Is this something that you want me to do

And I'll still sing
Through these walls
Hoping that these lyrics find you
Looking through keyholes
Track Name: Old News
Every day you do the best you can
To live the life of an honest man
To show them that it means that much to you
Like our band
You can't understand
They will get mad, he will disagree
She will walk off without me
And I still can't relate to anything

And everything I ever do
Will get written down and screamed back at you
Like if I write it down (if I write it down)
It's gonna make it true

Everything I ever do
Will get written down and screamed back at you
Like if I write it down (if I write it down)
It's gonna make it true

If everything you say is right
Then why am I not listening to anything, anything you say
And if my life is an open book
Written down by anyone who took
A little more of my self respect
Last chapter, my self respect

And everything I ever do
Will get written down and screamed back at you
Like if I write it down (if I write it down)
It's gonna make it true

Everything I ever do
Will get written down and screamed back at you
Like if I write it down (if I write it down)
It's gonna make it true

I'm no good with metaphors, but I will be soon

I'm no good with metaphors, but I will be soon
And now I'm swimming with uncertainty
I'm doing just the best I can
All I have is the best I can

And everything I ever do
Will get written down and screamed back at you
Like if I write it down (if I write it down)
It's gonna make it true

Well if I write it down
It's gonna make it
If I write it down
It doesn't have to make it
It doesn't have to make it true
