Track Name: Out of Context
What makes you burn, makes you rage and fire?
Moves through your bones, what fuels your desire?
Do I make you whole, 'cause it's all I need
to be filled to the brim; I am still incomplete.

Explode through me, make me new
I've never known you but I can and I want to
Teach me and I'll submit
'cause you got the goods and I'm over this shit

But it must all come with experience
Take me out of context
Put me in the sky
I can fly, I can fly, I can fly

Give me a road, I'll give you my all
I'm afraid it's all for the fall
Another day, and I'll be old
Hope to God I won't be sold

But it must all come with experience
Take me out of context
Put me in the sky
I can fly, I can fly, I can fly

I hear your words, and I'm on the brink
I can't go back, I've started to sink
The world's turned around, and we've got to build
behind the curve, it's all gonna give

But it must all come with experience
Take me out of context
Put me in the sky
I can fly, I can fly, I can fly
Track Name: Neither is Enough
Get me on the next train, need to ride around
Keeping time with the pulsing of the wheels on the track
Breathing usually helps when I can't do anything else
Frozen and scared, always looking back
I can focus as the blurring trees go by
Anything to keep the tears from my tired eyes
I'm trying, believe me, I am
Believe me

Get me on the next train, need to catch my breath
I'll escape to a world of movement
Swiftly travel to a place where I can hear myself
I'll get there soon or I'll lose it
Riding quickly, riding slowly, riding somewhere else
Trying not to let you know that I could use some help
I'm trying, believe me, I am
Believe me

And you want this, and they want that
Neither is enough
Please tell me what to love

Get me on the next train, need to ride away
Close my eyes as we sail to a new day
Open up to see the sun through the pane
Warms and blinds me, but I don't care
I'm afraid, I have peace of mind,
Even though I still don't know what I'm trying to find,
But I'm trying, believe me, I am
Believe me

But you want this, and they want that
Neither is enough
Please tell me what to love
Please tell me what to love
Please tell me what to love
Track Name: Assume the Worst
And I know I'll never risk it
'Cause I just don't have enough
of whatever keeps you going
so I guess I'm giving up

I tried to believe,
yeah, I wanted to have faith
'Cause I don't know who to turn to
and I don't know what to say

But I'd rather be safe than sorry
I'd rather be cold than burned
I'd rather be alone than broken hearted
'Cause I always assume the worst

You say that I'm not living
Well at least I won't be dead
This passion that you speak of, man
It's only in your head

I don't need any misery
I stray away from shame
'Cause I've heard of what can come from love
and I don't want all that pain

'Cause I'd rather be safe than sorry
Rather be cold than burned
Rather be alone than broken hearted
'Cause I always assume the worst
Oh it's the worst

When you feel like fighting,
but you don't know what you're fighting for
You can't stop crying,
'Cause you don't feel it anymore
Turn your head, you don't have to watch these tears
I'll be fine, just let me cry

'Cause I'd rather be safe than sorry
I'd rather be cold than burned
I'd rather be alone than broken hearted
'cause I always assume the worst
Track Name: This Is It
I wanna remember this kind of peace
Your needing is done, there's no need
When you're old enough to believe
there isn't a world that you long to see

Your life is a day, your eyelids are falling
bones in your chair, a smile on your mind
a peace so profound it's a playful young child
A peace that comes right before letting go

I will remember this
I will remember this
I will remember this
This is now, this is why, this is it

I wanna remember this look in your eyes
There's a light, you are fearless, you're something to fight
When your soul is as true as this clear starry night
When the things you do are the things that you mean

You'll have whatever you want, all that you'll ever need
It's that one fleeting moment, it's a perfect melody
It's what brought me to you, and what brings you to me
It's the reason for life, it's the reason to be

I will remember this
I will remember this
I will remember this
This is now, this is why, this is it

I remember the light, like the room was on fire
I remember your hand as you raised me up higher
I remember painted lips, I remember purple shoes
Empty words, an empty kiss, I remember you lose
I remember the man in the moon -
I remember he held me too fast and too soon

I will remember this
I will remember this
I will remember this
This is now, this is why, this is it
Track Name: Losing Youth
They've been dancing with tears in their eyes
Knowing not what they're losing, they're losing youth
There's an end on the end of your sentence
Now you're number 11. You're losing youth

Fingers crossed New York to Boston
There's a train inside my mind
and it's charging toward the exit
up and out the other side
If I told you all my secrets would there be anything left to tell?

Remember I'm beginning
while you're coming to an end
And now I make my exit,
before I lose another friend
Give me something I can live for
Now stop trying to pretend
I'm not pretending
I'm not pretending

Now you're dancing with tears in your eyes
Knowing not what you're losing, you're losing youth
Now they're carrying you out the bedroom
It's the end of your sentence. You're losing youth
