Track Name: Never Meant
dear mercy,
please have mercy on me
and my feet
'cause I am growing much too
tired of being sick of being down.

dear jealousy,
tell me can you hear me scream?
'cause I'm screaming for,
all the things that I have
broken I have bent and I've destroyed.

dear regrets,
please stop putting me to bed,
cause I've regressed
on everything I've said,
and everything I swear never meant.
Track Name: Oldzorz
my oh my where have the days gone,
of street hockey and super nintendo?
where we'd stay up late and watch the fireworks glow,
and stuff our faces until our insides explode.

and when the sunlight fades on these summer days we know.

as they years went by we watched ourselves float,
from trend to trend, high up to real low.
yeah we'd get our way because we said so,
but oh my God where did the days go?

and when the sunlight fades on these summer days we know.
and when the bagpipes blow with that tune so slow we'll know,
that we're getting old.
Track Name: Leap Year (+/- Cover)
she said, here is someday.
we'll find some way,
'cause nothing's gonna haunt me.
search lights, helicopters,
sound the all clear.
someone's pulling me in.

she smiles,
and I leave my feet.
she tries,
to bring the world out of sleep.

all my indecision,
lacking vision,
she holds the skeleton key.
leap year, in our own way,
armistice day,
she is everything.

she smiles,
and I leave my feet.
she tries,
to bring the world out of sleep.

she says,
here is someday,
we'll find some way and we'll be in.
Track Name: Holding On, For Sure (Pt. II)
and when the curtains close on us,
they will follow through with their demands,
of an encore.

but we're shutting both the doors,
and figuring out what this fight is for.
and we're holding on, for sure,
to the things we'd like to keep in store.

and don't bother telling me,
what I've done this time
I'm aware, of myself.

and you're not thinking of the score,
or the fastest way to throw the lure.
but you're holding on, for sure,
to the things you'd like to keep in score.
