Track Name: Orange Stone
*Verse*
What the keepsakes hold in place
Is on the last threads
Waiting on a bad day

Somewhere above it, Better "usses" watch on with dismay

When your archaic charms fail
All the storms will
Find us stronger or washed out
But we’ll know *2x*

*Chorus*
On the swing set/ down by the lakefront
Under the orange stone
We shared a spark of the eyes down by the rocks
Let’s heat up a warm stone by the rocks

*Verse*
To wish one owned a time and place
We weren’t the first
And won’t be our children

How that denial shapes us, is the story of our strength

When your archaic charms fail
All the storms will
Find us stronger or washed out
But we’ll know, we'll always know

*Chorus 2x*
Track Name: Numbers
*Verse*
Roshae, Roshae, Roshae, Roshae
Sweaty, nervous to approach her
Before she smokes and floats and doze off
Pull your best ice breaking joke out

Say you’ve got a joint in your room
Acapulco gold or some such
Roshae, Roshae, Roshae, Roshae
What’s your last name? What’s your number?

Chorus
Apathetic, Oh so very, meaning giving (Numbers)
Arbitrary, Think Them So and meet your end by (Numbers)

Odds and Ages, Stats and Wages, Numbers

*Verse*
Windy, Windy, Windy, Windy
He’s not single tempt him tempt him
Before they stop and reconsider
Bid their friends adieu fetch a cab

Say she’s got a bed in her room
And he’s wanted this for some time
Windy, Windy, Windy, Windy
After this don’t use his number

*Chorus 2x*

And when mines up, I hope I've left behind one
And I will, Make sure my boy know his way around *2x*
Make sure my boy knows his way around numbers

*Chorus 2X*
Track Name: Modern Mary Sunday
*Verse*
You left everything you love and your whole self worth
In a purse in a cab and it just pulled off; And you forgot

You and mother dearest diverge on everything that matters
the most, oh, and, for once, you're in the right

And for once before you die, with your own two eyes
You were there to see her be in the wrong; but what's it worth

*Chorus*
Give it all, give it up
Give a care, but keep enough
Tour de Force of half-chalance
Tour de Force of half-chalance

Give it all, give it up
Give a care, but keep enough
Purely for the passionless
Souls devoid of happiness

*Verse*
Out of sorts and in a daze, ready for the front page
But I wouldn't wanna read that interview
'Cause you're a wall

Find you crying at a bar with your make-up
Off looking for a young shoulder to borrow for a while
You lead them on

Everyday you seem to age and your options seem to fade
While you wait for the smile store to have a sale
You know they won't

*Chorus*

And when you hold him
Will you hold him
Down in the good, hip sense?
Two fit misfits

Whats so important
you have to say it out loud?
And again and again

Nothing...

Nothing/ Are you sure? Are you sure?
Nothing/ But you were gonna say...(x3)

*Chorus*
Track Name: End Of The World
*Verse*
I don't need you to save my life, I only need you in it
Come now, subtle muse or subterfuge
Dont fron't on me, dont

I don't need you to save my world, I only need you in it
Come now, subtle muse or subterfuge
Dont front on me

*Chorus*
Its the end of the world
I need you here
It can be the end of the world sometimes
Feels like the end of the world right now

*Verse*
This is going to cost me my pride
Outright
But I'll fight

This is going to cost me my pride
But I'll fight
'Til I die

*Chorus*

And I'm on my last money
My peers; they are surpassing me
This is life; And there's only one
And I'm losing hard
I'm losing hard

I can't look gorgeous ones inside the eyes
I feel unworthy
By the by, my soul's worth searching
By the by, I'm a decent person

Oh, its the end of the world
And I knew it would come
Won't you do me this solid and
Go in my arms?
