Track Name: 13 in My Head
13 In My Head (Nick Piunti)

13 in my head again
thinking what I could have been.
Remember when we slayed the truth
we told them all we had the flu.
Black light posters on the wall
we barely made it down the hall
innocently wasted in our youth.

What do we say now that we made it.
Past the age now, when we’re fated
to living out the same old stories
while we’re searching for the glory
in our yesterdays, seems like yesterday.

13 in my head tonight
I wasn’t looking for a fight.
A lot to say for solitude
call me when you’re in the mood.
In the meantime I’ll be found
buried in the basement turning up loud,
desperately searching for my youth

What do we say now…
…. Yesterday, seems like yesterday…
Track Name: On the Way Out
On The Way Out (Nick Piunti)

On to the next big thing that nobody’s heard about.
All you know it’s something you can’t live without.
In not long you’ll say it’s so passé it’s yesterday
it’s on its way out. Before it ever got in,
or underneath your skin, it’s on its way out.

You said I brought the love you never felt before.
How I flood the gates and I opened every door.
But not long you’ll say I’m so cliché I’m yesterday
I’m on the way out. Before I ever got in,
or underneath your skin, I’m on the way out.

Temporarily engaged with the flavor of the day
‘cause a week is much too long to waste away.
And I know you’ll justify how you never even try.
You just kiss the best goodbye.

On the way out.

In not long you’ll say I’m so passé I’m yesterday
I’m on the way out. Before I ever got it,
or underneath your skin, I’m on the way out…
Track Name: Good Thing Going
Good Thing Going (Nick Piunti)

You saved me from a meltdown, lent me your shoulder,
tripping on the way to a four leaf clover.
And all this time it was right in front of me.
I was so convinced it would never come to be,
then it happened so suddenly.
You gave me something, something to believe.
When it feels so right, then we hold on tight, endlessly.

We got a good thing going,
a good thing going,
we got a good thing going now.

You said you were heading to your wit’s end
I was there when you needed more than a good friend,
a cosmic chance or a date with destiny.
A lighting strike couldn’t be more bold,
no time to waste for the hot goes cold.
We got the gold and there’s nothing left to see.
When it feels so right, then we hold on tight, endlessly.

We got a good thing going.
A good thing going.
We got a good thing going.

And I suspect, there’ll be no remorse and no regrets.
So tell me we’re on the same wave of thinking.
Track Name: It All Comes Down
It All Comes Down (Nick Piunti, Ryan Allen)

Critical darling you’re still starving for success.
A casting couch is all you got when you failed to impress.
If that’s the way you do it, that’s the way it ends.
It all comes down to your friends.
It all comes down to your friends.
It all comes down to your friends.

Good intentions lost directions, a fork in the road.
Blinding lights don’t seem so bright
until it all explodes.
If that’s the way you do it, that’s the way it ends.
It all comes down to your friends.
It all comes down to your friends.
It all comes down to your friends.

Yeah, yeah, yeah….
It all comes down to your friends…
Track Name: We'll be Together
We’ll be Together (Nick Piunti)

Where we gonna spend, eternity or next week?
That’s as far as I can think.
What will we say when judgement comes too late for role reversal.
I thought this was dress rehearsal.
Just a minute, I’m getting it together.
Just a minute, we’ll be together, we’ll be together, we’ll be together.

Standing in line for Kingdom Come, I hope all will be forgiven.
I always thought, life is for the living.
Just a minute, I’m getting it together.
Just a minute, we’ll be together, we’ll be together, we’ll be together.

When the Earth quakes, for the last time,
you know I’ll be by your side.
When the land caves into the ocean,
we can ride that wave.

We’ll be together…
When the earth quakes…
Track Name: She's a Good Time
She’s a Good Time (Nick Piunti, Ryan Allen)

Yeah, she’s a good time follow the line from her door.
Yeah she’s the reason you’ve been feeling out of sorts.
She’s got your number, and she knows how to use it.
Under the gun you’re stuck in the haze and you can’t see through it

Yeah she’s a good time follow the line from her door.
Yeah, she’s the reason you’ve been feeling insecure.
She’s got your number, and she knows how to use it.
Under the gun you’re stuck in the haze and you can’t see through it

Every time she’s on your mind she’s on mine.
Under the sinking ceiling you still seem surprised.
Just as soon as you feel fine, she’s all mine, she’s all mine, she’s all mine.
Track Name: Every Light On
Every Light On (Nick Piunti)

When you wake up how you gonna scrape
those shadows off the wall.
And the haunted headlines of the nights
you can’t recall.
Wake up you’re dreaming baby.
Wake up can’t you see.
I’m gonna leave every light on.
I’m gonna leave every light on.
I’m gonna leave every light on ‘til you see.

When it blows up keep it on the down low
whisper in my ear.
I’ll keep my mouth shut, I know it’s not just
what you wanna hear.
Wake up you’re dreaming baby.
Wake up can’t you see.
I’m gonna leave every light on.
I’m gonna leave every light on.
I’m gonna leave every light on ‘til you see.
Track Name: Sleeping on the Pavement
Sleeping on the Pavement (Nick Piunti, Ryan Allen)

You didn’t know where the line was going.
Cover up when your spine is showing.

Generation why do you wanna try,
when the best has all been taken?
Nothing left to lose but the attitude
from a permanent vacation.
Well you’ll wonder where the days went,
when you’re sleeping on the pavement.

You never stop to worry ‘bout the danger.
It’s so easy taking candy from a stranger.
Eyes wide but you’re falling for the same thing.
You only talk when they’re pulling on your string.

Generation why do you wanna try,
when the best has all been taken.
Nothing left to lose but the attitude
from a permanent vacation.
Yeah you’ll wonder where the days went,
when you’re sleeping on the pavement.
Track Name: Reasons
Reasons (Nick Piunti)

You say it’s not your problem.
It’s not your job to have a care in the world when it’s
best forgotten.
You say you got your reasons.
You tried wearing your heart on your sleeve but it wouldn’t
stop bleeding.
No it wouldn’t stop, why should it stop.

I’ll drop down to pick you up.
Pull you out when you are stuck.
There’s no such thing as out of luck.
I’ve got my reasons, yeah I’ve got my reasons.

You say it doesn’t matter.
They’re just empty words bouncing of the walls like high school chatter.
Safe in your own corner, well I’m breaking in,
to bring you back again.
Track Name: Farewell, Goodbye
Farewell, Goodbye (Nick Piunti, Ryan Allen)

Over a barrel down a waterfall,
such a perfect way to go.
Though the rocks a wait I thought I heard you call.
And you’d be waiting down below,
in a blood red dress and the band was playing.

Farewell, goodbye, you can’t say we never tried.
We’ve been through hell, bought and sold the rights
to call it quits while we have our wits enough to let it die.
So we say, farewell, goodbye.

Safe to say I was the last to know
you made your way around the block.
You lost your way when you were coming home.
You changed your stories I changed the locks.
Nothing left to say so I’m just saying.

Farewell, goodbye, you can’t say we never tried.
We’ve been through hell, bought and sold the rights
to call it quits while we have our wits enough to let it die.
So we say farewell, goodbye.
Track Name: Quicksand
Quicksand (Nick Piunti)

You fell into a bottomless pit.
You slipped out of nowhere.
Getting out isn’t gonna be quick,
you’ll find once you go there.

Love is like quicksand
throw me a rope or lend me a hand.
I’ll pull you down with me
right into the quicksand

Taking everything that you’re worth,
even more if you let it.
By any other name it’s a curse
but we don’t stop pretending

Though the pain won’t stop,
giving all we got,
no the pain won’t stop us now

Welcome to the edge of the earth
we go without question.
Never said this wasn’t gonna hurt,
can we make an exception
Track Name: Believe It
Believe It (Nick Piunti, Ryan Allen)

I called you out, I didn’t know,
I’m not the one for “told you so’s”
or “could have been” or “what could be”
a tainted past is all just history.
I don’t need no explanation,
when it’s out of your control.
Well how you gonna feel it ?
If you never know?
To say the words, you’ve always heard.
You’ll never know, if you don’t believe it.

You stuck it out, just for kicks,
You suck it up in spite of this.
Sensory overload, you’re not the one
to do just what you’re told.
You don’t know need no revelation,
or writing on the wall.
But how you gonna feel it?
If you never know?
To say the words, you’ve always heard.
You’ll never know, if you don’t believe it,
if you don’t believe it.
Believe it. Believe it.
