Track Name: Fixer-Upper
So decide what matters most - what you got now, or what you wanted then?
And although it feels so old, it was never new
I'll spend my future looking back

And so, I started thinking about numbers - and oh my god, did that add up
Another temporary piece of night is wasted
So cross that box out, and put your pen down
And just forget that it was ever there

What a shame, you're running out of time
in increments which correspond to the amount of strength
that you're holding on with.
If time is characterized by change, and the people that you know,
well, I guess I'm getting into something I just can't prepare for.

I can't stop looking back
I keep walking, but my face does not face forward

Maybe, this is exactly what I needed?

And everything is for the best?
And everything is for the best?
And everything ever is for the best?
Track Name: Waking Up Is All That It's Made Out To Be
I could never tell what you were thinking.
I could only guess, but guessing never got me anywhere.
So, will I remain asleep for the next few years?
I just hope I'll wake up soon.

Had it been something tangible, would I have thrown my body forward or nailed my feet to the ground?

Only in my own eyes - always is there a look of surprise
You'd think I'd know by now, that nothing's different anyhow
Only in my own eyes - always is there a look of surprise
You'd think I'd know by now, that nothing's different anyhow

And even your most honest compromise was obviously weighted to one side.

If there was something there to find, I would have left it there to die.
And even your most honest compromise was obviously weighted to one side.
But, I had such a great time -

And I think I would've nailed my feet to the ground
Track Name: A Little Apprehensive
It was bound to be the worst thing that I'd ever seen.
A pile of leaves on the back porch, waiting to be swept away.
Well, you were always calling out someone else's name,
At least that's what I figured

Well, people change in the strangest ways
They always leave just when you thought they'd stay
And I had though for quite awhile - 'I am not everyone else'.

Either you'll take me down that road again,
Or lock me in the car in the June sun,
Apologetically watch me melt, and - oh, I never felt
Half of those things that I may have claimed to feel
But you didn't know because it sounded so neutral.

And I'm an empire awaiting instruction
Even the emperor doesn't care what I do
You're nothing more than the normal solution,
So I guess it's only fair that I'm you, too.
Track Name: It Used to Seem Really Far Away
Most of your blood stays in your body
I guess that's good
At least there's something that I'll be able to say -
'I did okay'.

To find yourself walking around in the neighborhood that you grew up in - I took it for granted.
