Three years since we first start Three years without a heart Three years, we’re out of time Two outs, bottom nine We felt so blind WATCHIN’ CELLS DIVIDE
2.
Three cheers rang from the hollow We’re SHOT FROM CATAPULTS We came to beg and borrow But left before the dawn We left out before anyone even knew Life’s sweet sorrow – and all the joy We left our things out in the cold Three cheers for our tomorrows The days that never come We left out the sorrow But lept into the void We came on so paranoid – you never knew Life’s sweet sorrow – and all the joy We left our things out in the cold
3.
UNDER THE ARMS OF MEN Discreetly we climb, up and over Sublime, that’s the way we live You were the one we forgot to forgive You were the one who made some sense of it Won’t you get up and go before the early morning light becomes the sunrise? You were the one who fled And we were the ones left for dead You were the one who made some sense of it Won’t you make some sense of it Won’t you get up and go before the early morning light becomes the sunrise? We’ve seen the highs and lows and everything we hide between the lines
4.
YOUR MIND, STILL So blind, still Behold, our way So blind, still Your mind, still Behold, our way in All the queens of paradise, still So blind, still Behold, our ways in So blind, still Your mind, still Behold, our ways back in You sleep alone And you’re a fighter, still Cuz you’re in and out And you’re upside down And you freak ’em out And you fight ’em still Put your head in Hey, put your head in In in in out
5.
Even though we need to know There’s no consequence to any kind of life Even still, that tour de ville Keeps them working through the night Did you come to say good night Did you come to say A QUICK GOODBYE? Can you tell your wrong from right? Can you come to say a quick goodbye? Even though we need to know There’s no consequence to any kind of life Even still, that tour de ville Kept you working through the night
6.
We’ll decide who gets an alibi Even when you’re all alone We caught you dreaming About your ups and downs Even though there’s no one around We caught you screaming That you were still downtown Even win your HEARTS & MINDS We heard you screaming About your shuck and jive Even win your hearts & minds

Sunset Calls 03:13
A deep, open sea SUNSET CALLS We’re all floating outward Sailed seven seas, all alone Sunset calls We’re all floating outward Things I’d never look back for I’m looking backwards For things I’d never look back for
8.
Welcome Home 06:56
WELCOME HOME Guess who’s here? It’s just me, year after year Same old tune, same old song Right where you belong Today, and every day Oh yeah, I’m here to stay Took so long but I found out Exactly what your shit’s all about Today, and every day Oh yeah, I’m here to stay Today and every day Until death decides that we’re going to divide And we go to the ledge and stare into our end And we divide It’s all been circumstance Step into the scene From a carcrash half life Remember, that was ’95 You got what you need – and yeah … You got screwed while I was on the Evinrude Take two hits and breathe Yeah, you weren’t gone While I was on the avalon Now you say, welcome home

Benestar 03:26
Beginning from the end You came along, my new friend Came along to say that you were in it to win it Hey buddy, did you know that we moved to Mexico and we tried to write a book without an ending? Hey Bennett, now you see, you’re the man inside of me You’re the one we’ll talk about The new beginning These days since you appeared, the bar is closed, the coast is clear All that we can really do is grant some wishes Hoorah, hooray This love is here to stay, within us We end where we began Standing here without a plan Now we’ve come along to our happy ending BENESTAR
