Track Name: Try
get in my car and drive a block
or take my eyes out for a walk
but i'm not even gonna try

the city's buildings stand aloft
spread out for me like a tablecloth
but i'm not even gonna try

but it's not the time and it's not the place
to pass the prize or to run the race

i'm growing old and i'm twenty two
within these walls not a thing to do
but i just let it pass me by

and as the weight gathers 'round my chest
an object stays and remains at rest
but i'm not even gonna try

but it's not the time and it's not the place
to pass the prize or to run the race
but it's not the day and it's not the hour
for a breakaway or to taste the power

Track Name: I Don't Care
i don't care what you do with them
you can spare me your feelings, friend
i don't care, i won't ever see you again

off the street
it turns to sweat and steam
as everyone's competing for your glance

on the stairs
you never said you'd leave me there
your auburn sands all pulled down in a sea of hands

i don't care etc.

teeth all cracked
a bum stands by a lamp
i say that it's a girl that's got me spun

a grizzly laugh
as he swears he's done the math
he knows that i'll go back if you're the one

and i'll drive myself home but i'm barely fit to walk
i will curl up alone but i'm barely fit to talk
i meet you on the street and you treat me like a whore
guess it was just me that thought it could be something more

Track Name: Cazuela
wasting my time with you
dreaming that won't come true
wasting my time on you but i can't help it

i saw what your eyes can do
a red desert with a sea of blue
saw what your eyes can do
that's when i melted

the whole world ignites
those old northern lights
they're all for you
the whole world ignites
the cold tequila bites
it's all for you

not sure what i should do
do i have the right to call on you?
pacing the parking lot like a madman

watching my lines go through
just give me a shot or two
watching my lines go through
in exchange for chances

the whole world ignites
those old northern lights
they're all for you
the whole world is bright
when the cold tequila bites
it's all for you

i was seeing things
in your (un)ironic smile
never did believe
that i could be beguiled

Track Name: Days Change (Lifeless)
so you took the first ride that came
and you left your friends out in the rain
but won't it be a big surprise?
when they're dancing, splashing
far from your greedy eyes?

the world is moving forward
i can stay behind
content to let the rest of the sun die
they can take their time
i don't really mind
i will stay up 'til the days change

so you think you've made a great divide?
that all your walls will stand with time?
like a children's castle on the beach
they'll be washed away
by all the waves that you can't reach

the world is moving forward
i can stay behind
i've got to watch the last of the light die
they can take their time
i don't really mind
i will stay up 'til the days change
