Track Name: Awake
Life is a puzzle and I'm just a piece
But without reason it's incomplete
Sometimes I wonder, I wonder why I'm here
Sometimes fear is all I fear

I need to rest my head
But I can't go back to bed

What's in the ground? What's in the sky?
If the truth is in your lies, I won't be surprised
Sometimes I wonder, I wonder when I die
I wonder if I was ever truly alive

I need to rest my head
But I can't go back to bed
This hole I'm in is deep
But I just can't fall asleep

I'll sleep when I'm dead, I'll sleep when I'm dead
I'll sleep when I'm dead and I'm not tired yet
I'll sleep when I'm dead, I'll sleep when I'm dead
I'll sleep when I'm dead

I'm still awake
Track Name: Be Kind Rewind
Oh no I lost control
Having it all made me want it more
Oh no I see you go
In my head, heading for the door

I should know better
But I can't forget her

On my mind, all the time, wish I could rewind
Someone help me now
Out of time, could I find, someway to rewind
Someone help me out
Someone help me now

Oh yeah you're standing there
By the doorway, combing your hair
Oh yeah it's not fair
How you don't know about all my affairs

I should know better
But I just can't tell her

On my mind, all the time, wish I could rewind
Someone help me now
Out of time, could I find, someway to rewind
Someone help me out
Someone help me now

Wasting time by my side, you're not on my mind
Someone help me now
Out of time, could I find, someway to be kind
Someone help me out
Someone help me now

I can't figure this out
So someone help me now
Track Name: Seasick
I got your letter and I never felt better
I mean, there's nothing more important than feeling free
Although I must admit you got me feeling just like shit
I guess I'm just surprised how quick you're over me

So go ahead and leave me on the bottom of the ocean
Even though you know I won't be able to breathe
Yeah go ahead and leave me on the bottom of the ocean
At least there's plenty more fish in the sea

That guy I saw you with last night, is he the one holding you tight?
Now that you're no longer next to me
I guess he's just a better man, a better man with better plans
'Cos you're in love yeah, anyone can see

So go ahead and leave me on the bottom of the ocean
Even though you know I won't be able to breathe
Yeah go ahead and leave me on the bottom of the ocean
At least there's plenty more fish in the sea

So tell me how you want this to end
Tell me how you want this to end
Tell me how you want this, tell me why you want this
Tell me how you want this to end
Track Name: Nothing Good Happens After 2 A.M.
Street lights are flickering as I sit here wondering
Why nothing seems to go my way these days
The weight of my shadow makes me feel so hollow
But I can't figure out why it's bringing me down

Is it just my conscience again?
Well I guess I could say we're just friends

I've got to know why
I've got to know why
I can't sleep at night
Why I can't sleep at night

Morning is waiting as I sit here shaking
'Cos the cold got a hold of my soul
I guess heavy drinking leads to excessive thinking
It's got to be true 'cos I'm stuck with no clue

About what to do with myself
Should I just leave the rest on the shelf?

I've got to know why
I've got to know why
I can't sleep at night
Why I can't sleep at night
