Track Name: Raise Hell
We're gonna,
Make make this summer count,
Hold the shoreline hostage,
Raise hell through town.
(No regrets)
Track Name: Hitting Bottom
VERSE:
I won't pull myself together now,
I'd rather fall apart,
And bleed forever,
Than live without a heart.

Because sometimes,
We have to die,
Before we learn,
To feel alive.

PRECHORUS:
A car crashed, in the middle of june,
And like a shotgun blast, it's a permanent wound,
Like the scars on my wrist,
It's on the edge of their lips;
But...

CHORUS:
No no no one wants to talk about,
A tragedy,
It's something they can live without.

Woah woah woah is what they said to me,
When i turned on the lights,
To help them see...

VERSE:
I lost my faith in god,
So long ago,
The only thing i have faith in anymore is myself;
And all the love around us.

PRECHORUS & CHORUS

BRIDGE:
A fragile stage is set,
For a silver curtain,
To fall against regret,
And paint a black boy red.

So take my hand x6
And you can save yourself.

(Spoken:
For every mountain there's a valley.

What do you do?
When you've got nothing left to hold onto,
And all you want to do is hit the bottom;
So you can feel something,
Just feel anything at all;
Just find somewhere to stand,
Keep your feet on the ground;
Even if it's like an anchor,
Dragging you down deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper;
Untill you're at the bottom of the ocean.

But there's still the chance,
That you can climb and claw and crawl,
Your way backup,
To the top)


PRECORUS & CHORUS
Track Name: Scars From the Shoreline
VERSE:
Do you remember when,
We'd go out and skate late at night,
Watch the waves roll by,
And wonder if our lives
meant more than changing tides?

CHORUS:
So raise your glass,
And make a toast,
Cause the coastlines all we got (It's all we've got).

And when the sun comes up,
And sheds its light on us
we'll all be,
Falling...
Down, down, down, down.

I want to waste my nights away,
Talking shit with all my friends,
It's all i've got,
It's all i need,
And i'm never coming...
Down.

VERSE:
I would spend my nights sitting by the shore,
Sipping from a bottle with all my friends until,
Until i realized...

With every sip i took,
Time would slip,
Between my fingers,
Which i allowed to linger...

On the lips of girls who only let
love flow,
Between their hips.

CHORUS:
So raise your glass,
And make a toast,
Cause the coastlines all we got (it's all we've got).

And when the sun comes up,
And sheds its light on us,
We'll all be,
Falling...

BRIDGE:
But the winter came,
And froze the ocean over,
So even setting fires by the shore,
Won't be enough,
To keep us warm.

To keep us warm.

CHORUS/OUTRO:
So raise your glass,
And make a toast,
Cause the coastlines all we got (It's all we've got).

And when the sun comes up,
And sheds its light on us
we'll all be,
Falling,
Down, down, down, down.

I want to waste my nights away,
Talking shit with all my friends,
It's all i've got,
It's all i need,
And i'm never coming...
Home.
Track Name: Sunrise Say Goodbye
INTRO:
My whole life,
I've been trying to learn to fly,
Jumping off of staircases,
With hope behind my eyes,
But i always hit the ground,
And my shoes are wearing out.

VERSE:
These callouses across my feet
remind me every day,
No matter where i am my friends
i'm never here to stay.

CHORUS:
Because i let the
sunrise say goodbye,
Let the sunrise say goodbye,
Let the sunrise say goodbye.

POSTCHORUS:
For me an all the lost boys,
Who never learned to fly.

VERSE:
And the only thing in life my friends,
That's really garunteed,
Is one day we'll stop breathing,
And death will sweep us off our feet.

CHORUS:
So i'll let the
sunrise say goodbye,
Let the sunrise say goodbye,
Let the sunrise say goodbye.

BRIDGE:
And maybe all the birds,
That taught me how to sing,
Will remember this melody,
So you can hear me every spring.

Because as sure the sun will rise,
I'm sure we'll say goodbye;
One day... x2

CHORUS/OUTRO:
I'll let the sunrise say goodbye,
Let the sunrise say goodbye,
Let the sunrise say good...
Bye.
Track Name: Burning Out
VERSE:
I'm a manic mess,
An open wound you'll never dress,
And i must confess that i'm spilling out sewage...
And my veins the spout.

I tried to hold on, but i'm filled with doubt about...
If this is meant to be,
Now it's not so clear to me;
Sing it out.

PRECHORUS:
I'm singing out metaphors,
About how it's better for,
Both of us to just walk away. x2

Sing it out, Sing it out.

CHORUS:
I'm burning out like a half lit cigarette,
Against her lips,
And her eyes are so wet. x2

VERSE:
I feel...
Like i'm falling apart like,
Cupids arrow...
Was torn from my heart;
But what i want to know is:
When the wounds are stitched,
Will the scars be stone?
When we die...
Are we all alone?

PRECHORUS & CHORUS

BRIDGE:
My eyes are killing me tonight,
Cause you are so far from my...
sight.

CHORUS/OUTRO:
I'm burning out like a half lit cigarette,
Against her lips,
And her eyes are so wet.

I'm burning out,
I'm burning out.
