Track Name: Weigh Myth, MA
I haven't seen you lately
At least now I can say that I'm doing better for the first time
It hasn't been this easy
I'm counting the hours down until I can fall asleep
This is the last time

Drive out to pass the days and state lines
But we could only see as far as the headlight shows
So move on, forget this place and just move on
We don't care where this could take us
We just wanted to leave this town

All those nights burning the hours meant so much more to me than
your constant lack of loyalty,
to weigh myth against reality
All those times that we have missed
and all those people that betrayed us from the start
well they're gone

Drive out to pass the days and state lines
But we could only see as far as the headlight shows
So move on, forget this place and just move on
We don't care where this could take us
We just wanted to leave this town
Track Name: It's Midnight, Let's Go to Nick's
Take it back, what you never should have said
You made a point to be a ghost inside my head
I've spent these whole nights buried in my bed
Stick it out through the breaks and bends I've tried
To be the one to follow through on all your lies
I couldn't save you even if I tried

I've said this for the last time, no it's not fine
You're just a thorn in a step that I have took
I always said I hate this town,
It's taken everything in me just to leave it so quickly
I can't pretend that it's something to be missed

It's a choice you've made to be part of this
So leave me out cause I'm over it

Was it worth it to try anything
To tear us apart again
Cause you've turned your back on what mattered most
To separate all the ties we've made
And now it's turning back on everything
That we could have tried to save
So now I'm screaming out your name until my lungs collapse
If I knew that it'd keep you down

I was always used to starting new
Cause it feels like every year we're getting older
But we're never moving forward
It's just a matter of time before we come back to our senses
I'm giving into giving up
Cause tonight the bottles come out
with all of your doubts
And every bone bruised in your body will be broken

It's a choice you've made to be part of this
So leave me out cause I'm done with it

Was it worth it to try anything
To tear us apart again
Cause you've turned your back on what mattered most
To separate all the ties we've made
And now it's turning back on everything
That we could have tried to save
So now I'm screaming out your name until my lungs collapse
If I knew that it'd keep you down
Track Name: Bear Lake
Hey there, woah
You dragged all of our friends down the lake that we spent
for the better part of last summer
But you stayed here, no
It was more than I could say for your lack of a better sense to just leave us out of this mess you made

It's a tired cycle, never ending
The pavement's cold and I'm pretending
that I'm better off without you here
But it doesn't help that the bottle's empty
I tried to find the words to tell you
That you fucked up, now it's burning me too
It's impossible to keep you close
When everybody has a reason just to say that you're out of line

But if you're set on saying goodbye
It's probably time that I should let you go

Hey there, woah
There's a boy inside this house pacing down the hallway
Like a ghost without a past to leave
And it feels so alone
When you're grounded by inertia that keeps you comatose in this buried grave of a bed you lay
It's a bridge to burn your faults impending
A badge of honor you stopped defending for your pride and shame
But we're to blame when it's bad enough just to say it's over
Your dead end friends won't let this down
They're shouting give up, give up
You never had it in you
It's a curse to bear between the silent years
It's every minute that you're holding onto burdens and anchor lines

So if you're set on saying goodbye
It's finally time that I should let you go

This could happen to anyone
But it happened to you
