Track Name: 40 Beers
The past 5 years have left me stranded with this shit upon my chest
Stuck in my silent chapter with these friends that I detest
You see I’ll never hear a fucking thank you, All I’ll see are these damn scars
I hope these lyrics leave your ego like its been thrown from a speeding car
That past 10 years I've known you, you haven’t once tried growing up
Every morning spent hungover or puking up your guts,
And I'm sure you didn't notice but I don’t seem to care,
And I’ll bet you’re even glad to have out of your fucking hair.

Let’s look back less than a year now you lost your girl, your house, and a job
It fell apart you still can’t accept it, back in that old room at your mom’s
I helped you pick up all the pieces just like I've always done,
I even glued them back together and it wasn't very fun

Everything I wished came true, except for how you fucked me over
You really fucked me over
I’m so sick of the bullshit, friendships meant much more back then,
Heavy hearts don’t get you anywhere these days…do they?

Now I know you love the attention, (I know you love the attention)
But how about some recognition? (How about some recognition)
We used to be best friends, now it seems it’s not even weekends
Gave everything thing I had now I've got nothing left.

How’s life back with your old roommates?
How’s that waste of talent bullshit?
I think I’m starting to understand it, I don’t approve plus it’s too late
To make amends, when you say “FUCK OFF!” to all your friends,
Friendships aren't supposed to sink, they’re meant to never end.

Now I know you love the attention, (I know you love the attention)
But how about some recognition? (How about some recognition)
We used to be best friends, now it seems it’s not even weekends
Gave everything thing I had now I've got nothing left.

Packed your shit up for the move home, stacked some boxes in a U-haul
Maybe now you’ll realize you need to know who the fuck your friends are
And cover songs are not a cure-all.

Now I know you love the attention, but how about some recognition?
We used to be best friends, now it seems it’s not even weekends
Gave everything thing I had now I've got nothing left.
Track Name: Nostalgia, or Something Like It
Remember the times we had
The good, the bad, and the aftermath
Boy those days died fast

Shoulder to the Wheel by Saves the Day
The Get Up Kids singing Holiday
Sticks and Stones on repeat all day, and always
Well that was then but this is now
You can’t blame me for my attempts at holding out
My roots stuck in the ground, I’m just older now.

Remember the times we had
The good, the bad, and the aftermath
Boy those days died fast

I remember long drives with no sleep
Before the world weighed us down
And everyone has doubts
That when I ask myself “Do I need this?”
“Yeah you need this,” more than I let myself believe
Well is it worth it to stay complacent?

And as the world passed us by
And I'm left here thinking
Am I really alive?
I just have to...

Remember the times we had
The good, the bad, and the aftermath
Boy those days died fast
Remember the shit we did back when we were just stupid kids
Well it was all worth it

HEY!
Let’s catch up over this fifth of whiskey
Let’s pretend that our lives aren’t so busy
Make time for my friends 'cause I want to
Let’s make new memories we can drink to

HEY!
Let’s catch up over this fifth of whiskey
Let’s pretend that our lives aren’t so busy
Make time for my friends 'cause I want to
Let’s make new memories we can drink to
Track Name: Where There's Smoke, There's A Liar
Distance was the only friend I had
At best I’d say I’m drowning but even worse looks like I’m leaving this town
With nothing left to hold me here I’m done,
With all this useless baggage, all the concessions,
Well look what we’ve become

I don’t know where I’m going but I’m pretty sure
Everyone’s been there before
With this chip up on my shoulder
Maybe we grew older and apart, well everyone’s been there before
Lying on the floor

Face the facts friendships are fleeting
I keep repeating “you let me down”
(You let us down)
Down and out dude just come clean and we’ll turn this around again
(You’re bound to see the ground again)

I’m running myself into the ground (I’m falling to pieces)
Cause I don’t wanna believe that shit could go this far this fast
Well it has, so show me - how do we get back?
When I’m lying on the floor

Face the facts friendships are fleeting
I keep repeating “you let me down”
(You let us down)
Down and out dude just come clean and we’ll turn this around again
(You’re bound to see the ground again)

I got the fuck out of this town,
I grew up and got out
You were the one who turned your back,
so I never turned around

I never thought we’d end up this way,
At each other’s throats every day
Come tomorrow we’ll forget each other
And we’ll never remember when we were like brothers

Well it’s all over cause you rolled over
And you learned to play dead in a smoke filled basement
Track Name: I Only Get Down With Bad People
Let's call this a rough draft
Of what's to come later
I can't say I hate her
Just yet...

And I, I'm still trying to get over this
Making sure the rumors stick
Yeah you asked for this
And I said (I said)
Can I get back the times that I
I can't get back the times that I
Wasted

It's almost hard to be
Away from you, you see
When you're playing your part
And it's breaking my heart
I never thought that I'd see the day
When I was glad to watch you throw this all away
Over some stupid high school bullshit

This promise was a penitentiary
I signed the mortgage
And you decide to leave
Man I should have seen
This was wrong for me
Gave up everything
Gave up everything

I've got this dining room full of shit
I'd really like to get rid of it
It's safe to say my patience is wearing thin
I'm over it

How's that space you asked for now?
Now that the charity's run out
I couldn't say I hated you then
Today there's not a doubt

It's almost hard to be
Away from you, you see
When you're playing your part
And it's breaking my heart
I never thought that I'd see the day
When I was glad to watch you throw this all away
(Watch you throw this all away)

Man I should have seen
This was wrong for me
How's that space you asked for now?
Now that you gave up everything

Man I should have seen
This was wrong for me
Gave up everything
Over some stupid high school bullshit

How's that space you asked for now?
Now that you gave up everything
How's that space you asked for now?
Now that you gave up everything

How's that space you asked for now?
(Man I should have seen)
Now that you gave up everything
(This was wrong for me)
How's that space you asked for now?
(Gave up everything)
Now that you gave up everything
(Gave up everything)
Track Name: Lesson Learned
Up in the sky
A question mark followed you and I, forever
And now it's clear that you have changed
I hope it's for the better

You gave her everything you had
You're far from perfect
But it wasn't that bad
And it shows that it's over
When you're cryin' at 2AM
(It's over, it's over again)

You put a ring on her finger
She put a knife in your back
And now it's six months later
And I haven't heard a word
Living with your parents must be good
Or I'm sure I would have heard

Dedicated to this sinking ship
In sight of land, but you're drowning quick
This casket suggests that you held on too long
You moved in right before she moved on

You put a ring on her finger
She put a knife in your back
And now it's six months later
And I haven't heard a word
Living with your parents must be good
Or I'm sure I would have heard

These are the worst days
They're better than the best days
At least I can say I learned something

These are the worst days
They're better than the best days
At least I can say I learned something

These are the worst days
They're better than the best days
At least we can say we learned something

These are the worst days
They're better than the best days
At least we can say we learned something
