Track Name: Stay Golden
The four of us over five years
Whittled down to two
And the years they were relentless
As they wore me through and through
And now my inspiration's left thin
While these headaches are getting thicker
And I've been taking my prescription
But I swear I keep getting sicker

So doctor doctor
What do you say when
The codeine and butalbital
Don't take the pain away
Sure they've been helping with the headaches
And that's helping me get to sleep
But there's no cure out there for heartache
And everybody leaves

The four of us over five years
Whittled down to two
And I checked my math and it just doesn't add up
(No it doesn't add up)
No it doesn't add up without you
And I can't tell if I'm angry or just depressed
Cause I've been worse for less
Yeah I've been worse for less

So doctor doctor
What do you say when
The codeine and barbiturates
Don't take the pain away
Sure they've been helping with the headaches
And that's helping me get to sleep
But there's no cure out there for heartache
And everybody leaves

So Johnny we're sorry cause

We had something golden but we let it rust
We had something golden but we let it rust
We had something golden but we let it rust

We had something golden but we let it rust
Track Name: Second Place
You make me feel like I'm not so alone
I was desperate for shelter so I made you my home
But now I'm
(Home alone
Home alone)
Guess you had somewhere to go
Thanks for letting me know

And if you're just like everybody else
Then I don't think I can live with myself
Knowing no matter how hard I try there's always someone else
And I can't get this taste of second place out of my mouth

I don't think I can handle someone letting me down
I can't keep picking myself up off of the ground
So I'll just lay here for the rest of the week
(Maybe two)
How bout we make it three

And if you're just like everybody else
Then I don't think I can live with myself
Knowing no matter how I try there's always someone else
And I can't get this taste of second place out of my mouth

So tell me that you're different
And tell me that you're worth it
Tell me that you're everything I've ever wanted
Tell me we'd be perfect
And promise me you mean it
Tell me that I'm all you think about at night
Tell me that you're there
And tell me that you care
Tell me not to be scared anymore
Cause you won't leave my heart sore
Or its strings tore
Or leave me waiting at your door
Track Name: Fields and Fences
This rural midwestern existence is dreary at best
I get to the city when I can the suburbs when I can't and small towns when I'm desperate
I'm mostly desperate
And I know it sounds corny
But I feel
Like the corn in these fields
The fences close me in

If I don't
Take my chances and
Put myself out there
I'll never leave this town
If I don't
Keep my head up and
Keep moving forward
I'll never make a sound

This rural midwestern existence is dreary at best
My voice breaks and collapses over the fields and fences
And even if I was king of
This land of insignificance
No one would know I exist
The fences close me in

If I don't
Take my chances and
Put myself out there
I'll never leave this town
If I don't
Keep my head up and
Keep moving forward
I'll never make a sound

Can you hear me now

We're getting out
We're making ground
We're done fucking around
We're getting out
We're making ground
We're done fucking around

I'm drawing a line in the dirt at your feet
Don't cross me
Don't you cross me

I've got determination for days
I'll scream my heart out
Can you hear me now

I'm gonna
Take my chances and
Put myself out there
And leave this fucking town
I'm gonna
Keep my head up and
Keep moving forward
I'll scream my heart out

Can you hear me now

Take my chances and
Put myself out there
And leave this fucking town
I'm gonna
Keep my head up and
Keep moving forward
I'm screaming my heart out
Track Name: Inconsistent
I can stand here
And wait for you
To give me everything
I've always wanted you to
But I'd be waiting for nothing
I know you're never coming
That's just something you wouldn't do

I've heard this before
You're so inconsistent
Just like the rest of them
Are you lying just to see if it works
Are you lying just to see if it hurts
Are you trying to get in my head cause it worked
I'll give you
One more week
And if you don't talk to me
I'll get the hint

I can lay here and take your blows
Another kick in the head but you don't even know
That you're leaving me waking with these black eyes and bruises beneath my skin
Can't you see what you're doing

I've heard this before
You're so inconsistent
Just like the rest of them
Are you lying just to see if it works
Are you lying just to see if it hurts
Are you trying to get in my head cause it worked
I'll give you
One more week
And if you don't talk to me
I'll get the hint

And you don't even know that you're singing along to a song that's about you
And you don't even know that you're singing along to a song that's about you
Track Name: Let's Call This One Heartbreak
Another haphazard romance dead
And here we go again
Another page turned
Let the next chapter begin

Let's call this one heartbreak
Part whatever fucking time we 're on
This book's left thick
And easy to predict
With all the 'Boy meets girl's
And 'everything goes wrong's

Just tell me you like me
Just give me a week of your time
And then you can brush me off if you'd like

Just tell me you like me
Just give me a week of your time
And then you can brush me off if you'd like

And I know that writing you a song won't make you fall in love with me
But I'm giving it a shot because I'm desperate and I'm lonely

I want the movie
Let's be the movie
Let's have that sparkling seamless
Happy ending

Just tell me you like me
Just give me a week of your time
And then you can brush me off if you'd like

Just tell me you like me
Just give me a week of your time
And then you can crush me and move on with your life

Cause you don't feel how I feel
And you'll never feel how I feel
You're in bed asleep and I can't sleep at night

You don't feel how I feel
And you'll never feel how I feel
You're in bed asleep and I can't sleep at night

I miss having someone there to talk to me at night
Keep my mind off things so I could fall asleep
I'll always miss every girl that ever did
And despise the long nights that by their absence end in sunrise

Just tell me you like me
Just tell me you like me
Just tell me you like me
Just tell me you like me
Just tell me you like me
Just give me a week of your time
Just tell me you like me
Just give me a week of your time

And for a week I'll think I matter
And for a week I'll feel fine
And for a week I'll think I matter
And for a week I'll feel fine
Track Name: Centennial Lanes
We showed up at 8 a.m.
Even though we didn't need to
No one else showed up 'til two

And that was just some more of our friends
We sat and watched as the bands loaded in
Ship Captain Crew, Of Glaciers, She's Alive, and Real Friends

On behalf of the Midwest welcome home
You gave this scene inspiration and hope
(Out there on the road)
From state to state and stage to stage
You're living the dream
You're everything we ever want to be

Dan said they're coming back in October
But Bryan said it'll be sooner
And it's only June 1st
But it feels like it's gonna be a hell of a summer
I told Kyle the scene looks up to them
And that we hope that they make it big
He took a drag off his cigarette
And said that everybody's gonna forget about them

But I'm still singing Home For Fall every night in my bedroom
And there's still at least one track on every mix disc we play in the van

On behalf of the Midwest welcome home
You gave this scene inspiration and hope
(Out there on the road)
From state to state and stage to stage
You're living the dream
You're everything we ever want to be

I'm so damn nervous about this EP
What songs to pick, what words to use, and all of the money

I don't wanna grow up
Go to college
Or a real job
I just wanna be like all the bands I go to see

And I'm not sorry, to anyone who ever wanted more from me
I will not apologize for being exactly who and what I want to be
No, I'm not sorry for taking my potential and putting it towards my dreams
Mom and Dad, this is what I'm doing with my life I hope you can still be proud of me
