Track Name: Sleep in Shifts
Remember what your mother said
don't burn the candle at both ends
but don't leave any what if's
or what could've been's
keep playing with fire
and look out for your friends

They're on the run
we're catching up
no more what if's
we'll sleep in shifts
Track Name: Blue Ski Mask
We're all goin' to the grave different ways, different ways...
Track Name: Rumors featuring D.Cote, Purple Organ and Scott Loving
Everybody loves a clown...
Track Name: Wandering Mind
There's always been a divide between what i want and what's mine
when i crossed the line, i nearly ripped out my insides
my pain is hers, first i got what i wanted now i got what i deserve

letting my mind wander

goes back to a photograph i took on the day you left
it's not what you'd expect if you were me
it's of the word regret, found it painted on a wall outside
tried to run and hide but i found the same thing inside

letting my mind wander
Track Name: Swim for Shore
Bite off more than you can chew
ungrasp the hand you always knew would harm you
swim for shore

tell me anything you want to
reveal everything you've hidden
your eyes reflect a river
i'm drowning in once more
swim for shore
