Track Name: Knock It Down
There’s nobody left at the bar drinking. It’s mid-November and I’m sleeping with my windows up.
The full moon pull has got my mind thinking. To do list like the sun that keeps rising up.
I hope it goes back down. So I can sleep.
The sun keeps rising and I keep falling down.
The sun keeps rising and I can’t knock it down.
There’s no use fighting what nature brought you. Some of us are blind while some get to see the earth.
I could’ve done more but I never thought to. Chalk it up to love and live and learn. Oh what I’ve learned.
The sun keeps rising and I keep falling down.
The sun keeps rising and I can’t knock it down
Track Name: Hurricane Eleanor
You made quite a splash in that sundress, and quite a sight when you undressed
but in your eyes a kind of sadness that I could never ignore.
My friends all gave me warning that a perfect storm was forming
And that you didn't really adore melike you did before.
I declared a state of emergency, converted every bit of my currency,
tried to prepare with urgency for the gales to come.
But all you ever did was disarm me, made me think that you never could harm me
But the impact was fucking alarming and now I'm dying to see the sun.
Eleanor the hurricane – stay away from this land
you should be a mystery of lies and feeder bands.
Eleanor the hurricane – do like the weatherman
you should be a mystery of lies and feeder bands.
Stay away from this land.
The aftermath was quite astounding, the roof of my heart took a pounding,
the help that I found was lousy so I started from scratch.
Now I build myself a new one, got a broken-hearted term loan
though you see me flying solo I know I'll find my match.
I declared a state of emergency / Converted every bit of my currency
I declared a state of emergency, converted every bit of my currency,
tried to prepare with urgency for the gales to come.
But all you ever did was disarm me, made me think that you never could harm me
But the impact was fucking alarming and now I'm dying to see the sun.
Eleanor the hurricane – you’ve worn out your path.
You should be a mystery of lies and feeder bands.
Eleanor the hurricane – do like the weatherman.
You should be a mystery of lies and feeder bands.
Stay away from this land.
Track Name: Game
Time spent for a penny – that’s not enough. But what’s enough anymore?
It’s just one in a million, then a million more. But then you still feel poor.
It’s a game that we all play. But if it means that much we’d do it everyday.
It’s a shame to waste a day. Cause time sneaks up on you and then it slips away.

Sometimes you can steal it, but that’s no fun. Yeah, you’re no fun anymore.
I’ll run the whole city but I won’t get far. No I don’t get far.
It’s a game that we all play. But if it means that much we’d do it everyday.
It’s a shame to waste a day. Cause time sneaks up on you and then it slips away.
Track Name: You
I’m gonna do what makes me happy and it’s you that makes me happy.
So if I can’t have you what am I supposed to do?
How am I to make the world go around, and keep from falling down?

You – you’re really something. The way that
You – you always keep me wondering about you.
You – you’re really something. The way that
You – you always keep me wanting you.

Faith in my strength to keep resisting, well it’s gone. I’ve long since felt like I’ve given
All my heart and soul – the only things I had to lose.
And all I get to keep are sad thoughts of you that keep me thinking through how

You – you’re really something. The way that
You – you always keep me wondering about you.
You – you’re really something. The way that
You – you always keep me wanting you.
Track Name: Everyday
All I wanna do is play punk rock everyday. Everyday. Everyday.
All I wanna do is drive fast cars everyday. Everyday. Everyday.

We’re getting older everyday. Older everyday.
I should decelerate the pace, create another day.
We’re getting older everyday. Older everyday.
I should decelerate the pace and find a better way to live forever still.

All I wanna do is play disc golf everyday. Everyday. Everyday.
All I wanna do is fall in love everyday. Everyday. Everyday.

We’re getting older everyday. Older everyday.
I should decelerate the pace, create another day.
We’re getting older everyday. Older everyday.
I should decelerate the pace and find a better way to live forever still.
