Track Name: Billy
The door opens up of the room 'cross the landing
It all explains as she stares back right at me
If you will not change then this town will change us for good
She took my hand to make sure that I'd understand that it would never end

All mixed up in the attic and wrapped up in blankets
Escaping the thought that he's never ever good enough
Billy decided to put some weight in all that hate
'Cause all you know is hurt

I have made myself this way
It's just routine I can't escape
I have turned myself inside out
It's just routine I can't escape
Track Name: Okeio
You know that it's not going to stop
If you leave for the one you're not
You know it's not gonna stop the hurt
If you leave, I'm stuck in your memory
I wish you'd talk to me

You know it's not gonna go away
If you leave, leaving your side of the bed empty
You know it's not going to change
Will you stay?
For a reason to get out of bed today?

If you leave…

That wall of noise keeps going on no matter where I go
My heart becomes a railroad track with every mile I run
I bruised myself with dissonance but it all feels the same
I ran along that railroad track but redemption never came

If you leave…
Track Name: N413
I don't think I need pills and talks from here
I don't think I need to medicate to make you love me

Trouble finds a way in the town where we were raised
Where you lost her on the way
Where there's no other to replace your mother

Bad luck will find me out on the N413
It chased me all the way till I reached the outskirts of the city

The closer destruction whispers in my ear
In my dreams I keep on running but I never loose that fear
Do you see all that filth?
It means nothing now
It's just a place after dark that's there somehow

Can you hear that sound?
I know you do
Screeching and inflaming through these thin walls
Do you see all that darkness?
It means nothing now
It's just a place after dark that's there somehow

Loneliness is not your friend
Track Name: Seattle Or Portland
When I was young I tried to kill myself,
with the irony you're different from anyone else but you're not
Running was easy when you grow up running,
with your friends in the shadows of the working class
With the dreams that pass away

I lost you to the city while I stayed around here
I wish you would have asked me
I still wonder why you didn't take me just to run along with you
With the trucks that pass at the dawn of day
It takes my heart and I run away

Will I ever see my mother again?
Instead of all this pain
I guess everything just dies one day
Till you walk out on me, till you walk out on me

When I was young I used to take that train
I sat at the airport and not feel a thing and I walked back home
Will I ever see Seattle or Portland?
Running for the door never seemed this important till now
Until now, run with me

I still feel that moment when you looked back at me
Trying to convince me with a tear in your eye

If I ever see that shadow again then my blood is up
'Cause I walked upon the edge that night escaping to a world, away from all the hurt.
Track Name: Needles Of The Tree
I am my daddy's dead son drowning in his whisky bottle
I wish I had the guts to find a way out of here
I hear my daddy's drunk voice calling and I hit the throttle
I wish I had the guts to let go of the consequence and make a difference

I have my mother's eyes reflecting in the window of the bus
I try to hide my tears but my heart's like an engine room
No way back, no future, I was never meant to get out this far
I wish I had more time but I now my time is up
I'm out of luck

I never quite knew what to say
'Cause I just can't pretend
I will always feel that shame
'Cause I kept losing till the end

Sometime I wish it wouldn't hurt me when you'd ask me if I still love you
I wish I had some nerve, but my heart breaks all the time
The needles of the tree are slowly letting go of me
You know what time it is when your friends invite you out of pity
I feel lost in the city

Sometimes I keep on playing till the sun comes up in the city
Hoping that you would stay with me
Sometimes I keep on running till the sun goes down in the city
I just hope that you would stay with me
Track Name: Suburban Reverb
How many times must you tell me?
Till I remember this
How many mistakes must you make?
Till you see it's me
How many times must you tell me?

What in the world could have done?
Cut the rope that you hung on
I wanted to drown in all that empathy
you know what the end will be

How many hearts must you break?
Till you see it's me
How many mistakes must you make?

What in the world could have done?
Cut the rope that you hung on
I wanted to drown in all that empathy
you know what the end will be

What a strange path it took to finally find my heart
I wanted to drown in all that empathy
you know what the end will be
Track Name: No Map Or Address
Where would you go if you'd shut the door
and broke the key off in the lock?
No one knows what was here before
You're moving on
