Track Name: Road Trip
VERSE
Let's take a road trip
Quick dip, get out of town
Before change our mind and turn around
Wave goodbye, say hello to paradise It's the weekend
And I'm broke again
But all I need is the weather and close friends
To get by
So I think I'm fine
All I packed was a camera and cheap sunglasses
That's all I need til the whole day passes
Time fades as we're on our way
Pass the palm trees, and the ocean spray I see a mere glimpse, of our destination
Then rain falls like a decoration
For now... At least we're dry for now

CHORUS
You told me
Breathe in slowly
Farewell society
Are you with me?
Cause time moves swiftly
Across the state line
Beyond the skyline

VERSE
And as the sun shines
Good times, are ahead
We pull off the road to see the sun set
Peace at last, we're outcasts, always running from our pasts
Now we can let go, of all the all-time lows
That have been building up, these past months or so
We're finally miles away, are all our doubts and dismay
And if you check the gauge again, we're not even halfway
In the rearview mirror are the years behind us
So many lies have made our eyes re-adjust
I've been to rock bottom and back for air
Cause a breathe of life worth any despair
We park at a beach, and talk non-stop for hours
Then we pass out, while the night devours
The sea Jump in on the count of one two, one two three
(Let's Go!)

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Skyline
Beyond the skyline
Are we far enough for you to see
That we can get away from, anything

CHORUS
You told me
Breathe in slowly
Farewell society
Are you with me?
Cause time moves swiftly
Across the state line
Beyond the skyline
(Are you ready?)
Beyond the skyline
Track Name: The Fast Lane
VERSE
Heard there's a cure
And rest assured, we'll find it
Not a pill, but something that subsided
When luck runs out
And if we both give up having our doubts
We'll both dip set and party again
Like we did last night, who cares that was then
We'll bottle happiness
With drinking games and shots of bliss
There's nothing Friday night can't fix
But could someone please turn up the party mix?

PRE
That we can't live with out It's a phase we sometimes doubt
But here we go again
Let's go all out

CHORUS
We all want the fast lane
Live it up we're forever young and insane
We'll keep our eyes from seeing
The side effects from this life we're leading
We all want the fast lane
Will Karma get us back one day?
Which friends will leave
Which friends will stay?
I'm counting on
We'll always crave
The fast lane

VERSE
We found the cure
It will lure us closer
Put down your cigarette
And I can tell you a lot more
Flash
Exposed
I took a photograph with her eyes still closed
Incoherent
It's so apparent
That she won't remember striking this pose

PRE
Just slow down everything
Life is not a race, so we can stop running

CHORUS

BRIDGE
The fast lane...
He is addicted
She reminisces
It's so easy, to give in
Don't give in, don't give in, don't give in

CHORUS
We all want the fast lane
Live it up we're forever young and insane
We'll keep our eyes from seeing
The side effects from this life we're leading
We all want the fast lane
Will Karma get us back one day?
Which friends will leave
Which friends will stay?
I'm counting on
We'll always crave
We'll always crave
The fast lane
Track Name: Used
VERSE I use you and you use me
As we use each other, exchanged words have no meaning
Cause the next morning she's leaving
We carry on, with our normal lives
Pretending it fills a void someplace inside
How long will this make us satisfied?

PRE CHORUS
Cause as we slowly feel deprived
Our withdraws are intensified
I can tell she isn't looking any better

CHORUS
So let's feel used
No strings attached
And no catch- the best thing I've heard
Another night
Another dose
How would you oppose?
Are you in the mood?
Can we conclude?
Let's just feel used

VERSE
The Saturday morning sunrise
Pierces through the window, into my eyes
I suddenly remember last night
She's already gone
But I don't care, no she's nothing me, we'll never be
More than a flare
Burning out faster than I was aware

PRE CHORUS
So as I slowly change my mind
What the hell are we?
We're so undefined
And no one knows, we're even together

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Let's just feel used
Just one more night
As our eyes fuse
When we then turn off the light
As the weekends blur
We can't seem to infer
If we're off or on
We can't seem to stop this urge
I'm addicted to her
She's addicted to me
As we overdose, we begin to see that

PRE
As we slowly lose control
We know, we won't feel better

CHORUS 2
So let's feel used
So let's feel used
Another night
Another dose
How would you oppose?
Are you in the mood?
Can we conclude?
Let's just feel used
So used...
Let's feel used
Track Name: Midnight Sun (War)
VERSE
We tried to escape
Reality's grip on our fate
We made for a run
We made love beneath a midnight sun
A bright sun

PRE CHORUS
But I'm awake now I slept through my doubts
Let's get out of here But are you ready for
A black out dear?
Cause it's...

CHORUS
War
All that we've tried to ignore
Has come back to tie loose ends
As flying debris hits our skin
Two worlds then begin to collide
There's no where to run or to hide
Hold on to what you can
Hold my hand
Cause this will be our last stand

VERSE 2
As dooms day awaits
We're trapped as we still hallucinate
We chase happiness,
Like lust for an intangible kiss
Don't miss
Cause I can't help those lips

PRE CHORUS 2
But I'm awake now
I feel so free, since our falling out
Cause as she walks away I see the sun explode and we decay
Cause it's

CHORUS
War
All that we've tried to ignore
Has come back to tie loose ends
As flying debris hits our skin
Two worlds then begin to collide
There's no where to run or to hide
Hold on to what you can
Hold my hand
Cause this will be our last stand

(SOLO)

CHORUS
Cause it's war
All that we've tried to ignore
Has come back to tie loose ends
As flying debris hits my skin...
Cause it's

War
All that we've tried to ignore
Has come back to tie loose ends... again
My sympathy goes to when it is

War
There's no where to run or to hide
Hold on to what you can
Hold my hand
Cause this will be our last stand

VERSE 3
As my consciousness fades
Flickering thoughts evaporate
What's done, is done
There's nothing new beneath a midnight sun
Track Name: Summer (feat. Jamal Jones)
VERSE
Hey, hey September
Do you remember?
Where August went, she must have had a temper
Oh well she couldn't have gone to far
Cause I saw last night at the bar
Hey December, did ever occur
You're too damn cold you make life hard?
So you can make it snow,
I think she's got too big of an ego
Spring Break flew by at the blink of an eye
She had me there
Then the months rolled by, seasons changed
But in the end I knew who felt the same

PRE
Hey June, I missed you
Where you been, we should chill real soon
Hey June, I'm overdue
But give it sometime think it through

CHORUS
She said
I wish it was Summer
Let's do it again
I always felt more than just friends
She knows
I'm in
She knows, but she's leaving

VERSE
Yo, hey, hey December
Don't you know you're cold as ****
Man I ain't ever met a chick that's as cold as this
January's always down but she's not so nice
The March girl always pretty but she's not so bright
April, you bring the rains that will change my life
Make me think about which one I wanna make my wife
My Spring fling's always handled like a grocery bag
Always rockin' sun dresses, so you know she bad
And though I love em all I just can't deny
None of them will ever measure up to miss July
And the way she does her thing, is just oh so fly
I know Ima see her again, once time goes by...

PRE
Hey July, you're super fly
But down to earth, you're more than meets the eye
Hey July, don't say goodbye
I'll miss your fireworks up in the night sky

CHORUS
