Track Name: Banquet Hall Love Story
He’s just a kid of suburban sprawl
Who can’t save face in the eyes of God
And she’s just a girl with love in her heart
Who can’t seem to find the right place to start
The right place to start

Their eyes meet across the banquet hall
As the snow outside begins to fall
Winter’s chill is lost on them
As the fire of love has their hearts on mend
It has their hearts on mend

And she’ll take his hand
and they’ll dance through the evening
And he’ll come to understand
that she’s there to stop the bleeding
Because ‘til now, he’s had no plan
To defend against the feelings
But with her, and her steady hands
He has a chance, to stop the grieving
Stop the grieving, stop the grieving
Track Name: The Grand Parade
It started when I was 6
A kiss on the cheek and a final glimpse and you went away
But you never did say
That by the time, I was 12
You would still not be around to heal the pain
Could I have made you stay?
So at 18, I lost my mind
Went barreling down the 405, oh god
I didn’t want to face
The fact I’d sit at 24,
Locked behind my bedroom door, filled with hate
And I still can’t shake

Oh, this sinking feeling
You made a mess of man out of me
Oh, when you walked away,
That day at the grand parade
That day at the grand parade

I can’t even describe the way it feels
To be left behind, and spin my wheels
After all this time, it’d be surreal
To have you back in my life, shit
This is the way I feel
This is the way I feel
This is the way I feel
This is the way I feel
Track Name: Lake Placid
So what went down, what went down?
That has you sinking under the surface now
Don’t you know, don’t you know?
We’re all just dying out in an afterglow, an afterglow

We dive into a lake so placid
We watch our bodies fade to ashes

Just put us down, put us down
You’ve tossed these bodies all around
Don’t you see, don’t you see?
There’s just too much weight
We’re falling to our knees, to our knees

We dive into a lake so placid
We watch our bodies fade to ashes
A gentle kiss from lovers we hold
Contain the balance, they’re as precious as gold

We bury our hearts
We strain our hearts
But why do we?
We break our hearts
We strain our hearts
But why do we?

We dive into a lake so placid
We watch our bodies fade to ashes

We dive into a lake so placid
We watch our bodies fade to ashes
Track Name: Voyager
Close your eyes and count to ten
I’m here waiting once again
Standing on your porch with a long drawn sigh
Oh how lonely it must be to die

I can’t accept the blame for you, oh no
I’m trapped inside the cycle
It’s really such a shame
We’re caught inside a web of misguided loyalties

Close your eyes and count to ten
I’m here waiting once again
Standing on your porch with a long drawn sigh
Oh how lonely it must be to die
So call up your friends and hit the beach
Oh how we live for sweet relief
Traverse the water making waves
I’m thinking of you all the way, all the way, all the way

The temperatures rising in my heart
The burning of a catching spark
The signs of sadness are wearing thin
A life finally in motion
A life finally in motion
A life finally in motion
A life finally in motion
Track Name: Violet Sweatshirt
Still's the night, prying at what's left
At your best, sweatshirt cloaked over your chest
Tired eyes make for tired conversations
Confusion sets, a lack of common sense
In your head, war persists without an end

Tired eyes make for tired talks
Our veins are full but our blood is thin
Track Name: Blackfoot
Come back to me
I knew you so well
Come back to me
Save me from my hell

Come lay with me
Like the garden when we were young
Come stay with me
A bond that can’t be undone

And I try, to let you know
That I’m not running back, running back, oh
But the truth is that I’m just tired
Of empty houses and empty towns, oh

I’ve seen it all
I know it’s gone
I bury my bones at the bottom of the lake
I hit it hard
I know it’s gone
But after all we’re just dust on the ground
