Track Name: Blue Skies
Pack a bag and get away
Take my hand
Jump on board, buckle up, ground control we're cleared for take off
Up up and away

We've got a long long way to go
Around the world we fly
Up above the clouds we soar
Through the blue skies

Drop a pin on the map where we've been
P.S. wish you were here
If you go all the way, to the edge of the world you'll see
Where the sidewalk ends

We've got a long long way to go
Around the world we fly
Up above the clouds we soar
Through the blue skies

Take with you what you need
I will be with you
Always one more goodbye
One more embrace

Rendezvous with an ocean view
Watch the waves rollin' away
Powder sand, SPF, stay out too long you'll regret
Your skin sun kissed

We've got a long long way to go
Around the world we fly
Up above the clouds we soar
Through the blue skies
Track Name: Capital Vices
Standing on the shore of the riverbank
I saw a body in the water when the current turned it over

Walkin' down the alley in the middle of the night
I saw an old man warming his hands by the fire

Late night club under age girl
She's swingin' from the pole, making a twirl

Dealing on the corner across from a school
He robbing grave making children his slaves

Every time I look around
I see too many things that are bringing me down
Everywhere you look
You see more, more, more, more
No end in sight, I see it day and night
Quench their appetite with Capital Vices

Midnight drivin' down the road
I saw three car wreck from a drunk driver

Downtown after the sound of the bell
Another shirt and tie that's robbin' us blind

(chorus)

Stop and go in a traffic jam
No one pulls over for the ambulance goin' by

Deep water drilling on the ocean floor
Polluting the sea turn their pockets green

(chorus)
Track Name: Come To This
I wonder how it will be
Now that we don't see
Eye to eye anymore

Time, all these years spent in
Silence, put more and more
Miles, between us now

But I can't give chase
I know I'll never get this moment again
Playing it over in my head
I tell myself it was the right thing to do
Oh my love
I can't begin, to tell you how my life has been
Days run into night
And shadows fall off the wall
I stare and wonder why
It has come to this

Tell me, tell me what to do
You know I'll do anything for you
Just don't walk, just don't walk away.

We search the whole world through
And end up in each others arms
Soak up all the tears
In the sands of time
Track Name: Broke Down Truck
Got a broke down truck, she don't run no more
Got a broke down truck, she don't run no more
Sits and rusts away, take my pay at the end of the day
Got a broke down truck, she don't run no more

She once was good, star of the neighborhood
She once was good, star of the neighborhood
Rusted hubcaps and tires flat, overgrown weeds in the yard out back
She once was good, star of the neighborhood

Push it, pull it
Push down the road c'mon gimme a tow

I cried the day, they towed her away
I cried the day, they towed her away
Muffler fell off and dragged behind, stale gasoline burned in my mind
I cried the day, they towed her away

Push it, pull it
Push down the road c'mon gimme a tow
Track Name: Fall For You
Oh my world's upside down
And I feel myself falling to the ground
Don't know when it sneaks up on you
It only happens once in a lifetime

Oh, I feel I'm flying
Head in the clouds I'm high
Hold my hand
As I fall for you

We laugh looking back
All the funny interactions and playing hard to get
Now as time ticks on we look around
All the memories we have in photobooks and holiday cards

Oh, I feel I'm flying
Head in the clouds I'm high
Hold my hand
As I fall for you

Where you go I'll be right beside you
Hand in hand, it's our world for the taking
We'll see it through, you and me
All the way, all the way, all the way home

On in moments like this sometimes it's hard
To find the right words
You always beat me to the punch
With those three little words and knock me out

Oh, I feel I'm flying
Head in the clouds I'm high
Hold my hand
As I fall for you
Track Name: Running Out Of Time
Wake up see the sun warm my day
Been a long sleepless night, gray clouds go away
We're in the same mess, same excuses
Fight each other over what the truth is

Seems to be getting hotter in here
Wasn't like this at this time last year
Water higher than before
Just more things we choose to ignore

Time and time again I wonder when this all will end
Living in a world of hurt in a world that's hurting
Everybody taking more than they need and giving less
Till it all runs out

We're running out of time
Wash it all away
We're running out of time
Wash it all away

What goes up acid rains down
Melts away more than mankind's crown
All of this hard to believe
It's getting harder and harder to breathe
Track Name: Take It All Away
Feel the weight of the world
Resting on your shoulders
Weighing you down
Crumbling away

Take it all, take it all
Take it all away
Second thoughts of what really matter
Sometimes we stand, other times we fall
Take it all away

I know that there's a way
I need you help but I can't say
I hold it in, hold it back and can't let go
Going no where

Take it all, take it all
Take it all away
Second thoughts of what really matter
Sometimes we stand, other times we fall
Take it all away

Does it matter now
Walking away
Track Name: Time Gone
Hello again, it's been a long time
Since our plans fell through
We promised one another for another time that never happened
And now we sit and think 'I remember him or her'
Whatever happened to, whatever happened to

Oh where has all this time gone
Slipping away
Oh where have all these days gone
Slipping away

Ain't it funny how when we're young we want to be older
And when we get there want to be twenty-one again
And all the while we miss everything in the middle
Even the mid life crisis

Oh where has all this time gone
Slipping away
Oh where have all these days gone
Slipping away

We try to hold on to these moments inside a picture frame
We say they'll be another day, someday

And at the start of every year we make changes with resolutions
A few months go by and we resort to our old ways
Another year goes by
Another year goes by
