Track Name: Sam Burns - Meteoric
Tracing a path
In concentric circles
Following you down
Through summers unlasting, mortal

Living for those fleeting days,
Just a halcyon haze
Destructive in creation, no destination
Bicycles torched in the blaze

Was this all such a surprise?
Our Meteoric rise
Has had its time, had it time

Now it comes crashing through the roof
Bearing down on everything that we built anew
Burning bridges like we knew it would do
We won't make it through

Was this all gone by sunrise?
Our adolescent lies
Have had their time, had their time

Now it comes crashing through the roof
Bearing down on everything that we built anew
Burning bridges like we knew it would do
We won't make it through
Track Name: Dylan Sylvester - Drunk on a Monday
This isn't a party, no one invited you
My depressing Leonard Cohen iTunes playlist will have to do
Cause Solo cups and drinking games I think I'll take a pass
My weekend sucked and this is how I'm going to make it last

I'm getting drunk on a Monday
I'm drinking all by myself
I'm getting drunk on a Monday
Cause at this point, might as well
And if you asked me if I gave a shit I really couldn't say
Cause I'm getting drunk on a Monday

Kick back in my EasyChair and binge watch Game of Thrones
Make myself a grilled cheese sandwich and eat it
IN THE DARK ALONE
And sweat pants go with anything it's not like I'll be seen
I'm lying face down on the floor and I never want to leave

I'm getting drunk on a Monday
I'm drinking all by myself
I'm getting drunk on a Monday
Cause at this point, might as well
And if you asked me if I gave a shit I really couldn't say
Cause I'm getting drunk on a Monday

Got a bid ol' bottle of Jack
I'm drinking straight from the tap
Don't need any mix
I can see the water under my fridge

I'm getting drunk on a Monday
I'm drinking all by myself
I'm getting drunk on a Monday
Cause at this point, might as well
And if you asked me if I gave a shit I really couldn't say
Cause I'm getting drunk on a Monday
Cause I'm getting drunk on a Monday
Track Name: Sean Newton - They Must Have Lost Their Minds
Its well past midnight when she comes walking through the door
He waited hours, finally passed out on the bedroom floor
Sara tiptoed lightly round the room
Steven woke up, got in bed, passed out til well past noon

He never sees her anymore
Things don't feel quite like they did before

Sara brings the groceries in through the front door
He doesn't notice her, he's seen her face 10 times or more
Steven's busy watching law and order
Impatiently waiting for the commercial to be over

He's waiting for it to resume
She retreats back to their room

Sara keeps herself awake
Thinking that all good things can break
Scrolling through the last 3 years of life
Steven thinks of all the places he's been
Just living on whiskey and routine
Feels like leaving all his dreams behind

They feel like this for months at a time
If this is love then they've lost their mind

They lie in bed in silence side by side
Contemplate all the things they've tried
Til Sara says its time for her to leave
Sara packs a suitcase and leaves home
Steve and Sara are alone
Without so much as one goodbye
Track Name: Sam Burns - Coward
Coward...

You sicken me, how could this be?
You've succumbed, how did it come to this?
You've succumbed, how did it come to this?

Coward, you're a coward.
Track Name: Dylan Sylvester - Lullaby for Myself
There's a light in my room and it won't let me sleep
I could easily blow it our or I could
Just go sleep somewhere else
But the warmth that it cast is a warmth
I don't think I have ever felt
It's prettier than anything I've ever seen
And it dances with me when I speak

And I don't know how long it's been since I've slept
Dreaming is the last thing on my mind

This couch that I've found myself on
Is smaller than it looks
There's almost no covers to speak of
But I've made this bed now I must lie down
It's gotten so late that it's got to be early
The birds must be singing by now
Tell them to sing as loud as they please
Because I don't plan on getting sleep

I don't know how long I've been awake
Dreaming is the last thing on my mind

There's a light in my room
Track Name: Sean Newton - Whatever's Left
I fell asleep in the back of my car
Drive overnight to get back, chasing the stars
Looking back at the places I've been
I'm moving on, without a trace, or so it seems

You might think that it's a shame
To pick up my life and start again
If this is goodbye then why pretend
That all good things come to an end

The endless prairie passes by, almost unseen
Too many things on my mind, no time to dream
Can i regain what I lost, or have I changed
Did I pay too steep a cost, to stay the same

You might think that it's a shame
To pick up my life and start again
Put all my dreams up on a shelf
They're within reach for someone else

You might think that it's a shame
To pick up my life and start again
So fucking tired of being alone
Whatevers left I'll call it home
