Track Name: No Surrender
This is the night where you will finally see your friends
for what they really are
And this is the place where every fantasy you've built ends
In the back seat of his car

Everything you ever wanted seems like its slipping through your hands
through your tightest grip now
Everything you ever wanted seems like its slipping through your hands
and you know we deserve it

Promise me, cross your heart
Never surrender, you'll never surrender
Promise me, cross your heart with mine

This is the night where all the promises you made end
and you're caught red handed
This is the place where we will bury our lovers and friends,
in this moonlit back yard

Everything you ever said to me is running right through my head
in your coldest voice now.
Everything you ever said to me is running right through my head
and you we deserve it.

Promise me, cross your heart
Never surrender, you'll never surrender
Promise me, cross your heart with mine

Never give up. Never Give up on us
Never give up. Never give up

No Surrender
Track Name: Letters
Just hold your breath and hold on tight
No regrets we're free tonight
Living in this moment is all we've got just
don't look down
Right or wrong we'll shoot these stars
Baby girl it's everything your heart desires
come on lets run all these reds and
run like hell

On my own

I'll send the pain away in letters
Mail them so far from home
It doesn't make it any better
And I'm lost for words
And I'm the fool who can't forget her
I know she's better off
in her perfect summer
while I wait here in the fall

We'll turn to dust by mornings light
Just take this chance and dance tonight
Holding on so tight that I can barely breathe
Just don't let go
Here we stand at summers end
Just lie to me and tell me we'll still be friends
Come on, lets break all these rules and
run like hell

On my own

I'll send the pain away in letters
Mail them so far from home
It doesn't make it any better
And I'm lost for words
And I'm the fool who can't forget her
I know she's better off
in her perfect summer
while I wait here in the fall

Everybody knows how the story goes
I'm tired of not knowing what I'm waiting for
Track Name: Patterns In The Static
This is where is started
We could be alive
Find yourself and lose it all in indiscretion
I'm an easy target
You're a steady hand
Lock and load
Aim and fire
and I've been ghosted
Disregard this message
Sign and seal this fate
Toss this bottle back into the hungry ocean
This is every moment
This is all thats left
I am smoke
a name that will be writ on water

We are patterns in the static
We are the ghost in this machine
We're out of sequence and erratic
Among these ruins we are kings
Track Name: The Getaway
Well turn up this radio
Firing pistons turning wheels and burning road
If this is freedom then I'm never coming home
If this is real and this is now then let it go

Just don't act so surprised

Just say your prayers and I
Well I'll be there when you open your eyes
Tell me tell me now
Tell me if it's real
Then I will stay
We can burn it all, baby
Don't look back
We'll get away

All I need is open road
And all the small towns and faces and the shows
If this is over then I'm never coming home
If this is real and this is now then let it go

Just don't act so surprised

Just say your prayers and I
Well I'll be there when you open your eyes
Tell me tell me now
Tell me if it's real
Then I will stay
We can burn it all, baby
Don't look back
We'll get away

I know it's right
Even though it's wrong
And this is what we get for falling
And I know we're lost
Lost in what we've found
And this is what we get

Just say your prayers and I
Well I'll be there when you open your eyes
Tell me tell me now
Tell me if it's real
Then I will stay
We can burn it all, baby
Don't look back
We'll get away

Just say your prayers tonight
Well I'll be there when you open your eyes
Tell me tell me now
Tell me if it's real
Then I won't stay
We can burn it all, baby
Don't look back
We'll get away
Track Name: We Fall As One
If I could shelter you from all this anger, I'd take you far away you know I would.
We'd drive 'till dawn and leave this all behind us. Start a new life where the old life stood.
You never had a mother here to guide you. Your only father ran away so young.
The fault was theirs but then it didn't stop you from making miserable your native tongue.

And I, I wish I could have stayed. Would everything have ended up ok?
I wish I could have known so you wouldn't be alone.

This time you're going under, next time I'll be the stronger one.
I fall, you fall, we fall as one. You think I'm a better man?
This place seems so familiar, this secret's kept a loaded gun.
I fall, you fall, we fall as one.

If I could take the pain and bear it for you. If I could find a place to keep you safe.
You kept it secret while I kept my distance but I never knew that you had been betrayed this way.

And I, I promise you I'll stay and everything will end up okay.
I won't put down this phone
'til I know you're not alone.

This time you're going under, next time I'll be the stronger one.
I fall, you fall, we fall as one. You think I'm a better man?
This place seems so familiar, this secret's kept a loaded gun.
I fall, you fall, we fall as one. You think I'm a better man?

We had it all planned out, now it's falling apart.

And I promise you I'll stay, and everything will end up okay
i won't put down this phone 'til I know you're not alone.

This time you're going under, next time I'll be the stronger one.
I fall, you fall, we fall as one. You think I'm a better man?
This place seems so familiar, this secret's kept a loaded gun.
I fall, you fall, we fall as one. You think I'm a better man?
Track Name: Shine
Can you tell me how come everything makes sense
when it's miles away and simplified?
Can you tell me how come everything makes sense
when we paint it in black and white?

Will we find
and honest way back home again?
Will we find
a flag that we can fly?

Stand up!
This all we have to live for
here and now.
Stand up!
and we're never looking back.
We've forgotten how to shine alone
We've forgotten how to shine alone
living in this glimpse of paradise.

Whatever happened to the fire in our eyes? (we never lost it)
Did we give it away or sell it off? (It never faded)
This is our time so we better do it right.

We will find
an honest way back home again.
We will find
a flag that we can fly.

Stand up!
This all we have to live for
here and now.
Stand up!
and we're never looking back.
We've forgotten how to shine alone
We've forgotten how to shine alone
living in this glimpse of paradise.

I know we can't give it away.
Hey you standing by the back wall waiting for the world to change.
You've gotta wave goodbye to the past tense baby 'cause
it's time for change

Stand up!
This all we have to live for
here and now.
Stand up!
and we're never looking back.
We've forgotten how to shine alone
We've forgotten how to shine alone
living in this glimpse of paradise.
